Welcome to our condo in Hawaii, we like to give everyone a well deserved and affordable vacation. This is a very private and newly renovated, top floor corner unit centrally located in Kailua-Kona, Big Island Hawaii. 350 days of sunny weather in a year with some of the best beaches in the world, all within a short distance.
Our condo complex Kona Shores is located just outside the busy part of Alii Dr. within 1 mile walking distance to the town centre and farmer's market. There is a ocean side pool with beautiful sunset and possible whale, dolphin sighting in the early mornings.
Our condo offers a private and relaxing setting with cozy home feel and designated parking space. A great place to come back to after exploring what some of the amazing and diverse places the Big Island has for you to experience.
Description: Kitchen is all newly renovated with granite countertops, new cabinets and matching vanity set in a large bathroom with a waterfall faucet. Fully furnished top corner unit with a very private and tranquil setting. There is a Nova Gel Memory Foam mattress, leather sofa bed, 32 inch Samsung TV, DVD Player, cookware, rice cooker, coffee maker, kettle, dinner ware and cutleries for you to use. There are lots of novels, guide books, body board, and snorkeling gear left from previous guests. High speed internet is available. Coin operated laundry facility in complex. No Smoking and no pet allowed.
We spent our honeymoon in Kona and was captivated by the beauty, life and diversities of the Big Island. Fell in love with the island life and our condo is our 2nd home away from home. We would love to retire here.
Kim and Lake purchased this condo in 2011
The space within this unit is private, peaceful and tranquil, we immediately felt right at home!
Check out the snorkel gear on the back porch to see what fits.
Kitchen seems to have ample leftover ingredients: tea, oil, and some other random things. And it's nice to have a kitchen if you're going to stay a while.
TV gets enough channels.
The owners were certainly prompt to respond to emails and prompt to refund the security deposit.
Comfortable, nice to have the breeze blowing in off the lanai.
Just a short drive from town.
Bed was quite flat and not comfortable; I think it was very old memory foam covered in plastic.
No beach view (as far as I could tell) but could see Ali'i Drive from the lanai.
Kim and Lake are great hosts! After booking, they followed up with info and were very quick to reply to any questions and provided info needed. We stayed at Kona Shores before (a different unit) but enjoyed this corner condo - quiet and private condo and lanai. The location is perfect; close to several beaches and downtown Kona, if you want to go to shops and restaurants. The condo is clean and nicely equipped with granite counters in kitchen and bath. A/C is a must for us, which is provided. Also wonderful that beach mats, beach chairs, umbrella, towels and misc. extras are great! For us, this was home away from home, with bonus of being in paradise (Kona) at a reasonable price. Just bring your toothbrush! Mahalo Kim and Lake* great hosts!
We were very pleased with the condo, location, and pool. Kim and Lake are excellent to work with! Prompt replies, very polite; they have kept the unit in nice condition with new kitchen cabinets, countertops, bathroom fixtures, etc. Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie board, etc. are all available. We also, like other guests have noted, found ourselves on the tiled lanai every morning for breakfast and most evenings for dinner. Even though it is on Ali'i Drive, which tends to be busier, it still feels very private and it was quiet at night for a restful sleep. We have been coming to Hawaii for 10 years and have stayed in many condos and houses. We would definitely come back to stay at Kim and Lake's!
My wife and I consider this condo our home away from home. We enjoy this condo and its location so much we have already booked next years stay. this will be our 3rd year staying here. Its close to Kona, within walking distance to restaurants and shops it has a great pool with access to the ocean and the beautiful Kona sunsets. The condo is very comfortable and spacious, large living area, kitchen and bathroom. We enjoy cooking in the newly renovated kitchen and enjoying our breakfast on the lanai with the family of gecko's who scamper up and down the palm trees right next to the lanai. There's a couple of farmers market within a 15 to 20 minute walk from the condo. If your into snorkelling there are some great beaches within a short drive, great hikes, Pololu Valley and volcano's they are all within a couple of hour drive. We are already starting to plan what we will be doing next year. If you are looking for a great place to stay on the Big Island you couldn't do better than this condo and Kim and Lake are always respectfully and a pleasure to deal with.
We had the best vacation ever! We downsized this trip, our sixth to the Big Island, and the condo was perfect for us. Breakfast every day and dinner most nights on the lanai. The rest of the time we were at the beach or the farmer's market or sightseeing! We'd stay again except we're moving to the Big Island!
This was our 2nd stay at this condo and it felt like home again. We love that there is a lot of space to spread out and the new couch is very comfy! We didn't use the kitchen, but it contains everything you might need to cook a good meal. The bathroom is huge with a lot of hangers to store your clothes. You can find a lot of beach gear on the lanai incl. bodyboards and beach chairs, snorkel gear etc. so you can have a good day at the Magic Sands Beach or the turtle beach (Kahalu'u Beach Park), which is very close by car.
But besides all the beaches I LOVE the pool. It's awesome to go for a swim and watch the ocean at the same time. Could spend days there!
The condo is very close to everything and I'll give you a restaurant recommendation: Da Poke Shack, just down the street, serves the best Poke I've ever tried!
Kim and Lake are so easy to deal with and we would love to come back very soon!
