Ocean and mountain views from all rooms and lanai make this 2-story, top-level condo a real treasure. Kailua Bay Resort (KBR) is THE perfect downtown location and just 1.5 city blocks or a 4-5 minute walk to Kona Pier, Kam Beach, historical sites, the farmers market, shops, restaurants and clubs. You can keep your car parked because there's no need to drive. Vaulted, wood beam ceilings combine with large windows on 3 sides (a big advantage of being an end unit) to provide a bright and open feel that lives much larger than it's actual 1180 sq/ft. Our Hale Ohana boasts new... wood floors, breakfast bar, tile, paint, furniture, bedding, linens, appliances, decor and more. We have tried hard to provide every necessity and comfort to make your stay in Kaila-Kona one to remember. Enjoy a leisurely stroll to the pier for a sunset picnic. Savor your morning Kona coffee on the beautiful tiled lanai as Hawaiian birds sing and dart amongst the lush tropical foliage surrounding KBR and a luxury cruise ship anchors in Kailua Bay right in front of you!! Relax in the pool/spa which is right next door and get to know our wonderful neighbors. From personal experience you can stay in a luxury chain hotel and feel like a visitor or you can stay at our beautiful KBR condo and feel and live like a local. We are confident that you will enjoy your stay and feel closer to the island and the people than you ever would at a big name resort. King Kamehameha chose to live at Kamakahonu, a compound he built just around the corner which is now the starting and finishing points of the Ironman World Championship Triathlon. THE PERFECT IRONMAN RENTAL!!!

Location...Location...Location! We are a short walk to everything. In addition we like that KBR is a well-maintained, smaller condo complex with friendly, warm neighbors. We also love the unique design and openess of our home and of course the 360 degree views of the mountains, ocean and the oldest Christian church in Hawaii.
I love to relax on the lanai and enjoy the view, the breeze and the sounds. It's a great place to read a book, drink morning coffee, eat a meal or enjoy a beverage. I especially enjoy watching the cruise ships anchor in Kailua Bay. It affirms I am in a special place. I also enjoy the lush tropical landscaping as well as the birds and geckos.
We have just come back from one of the most amazing holidays. We specifically went to Kona for the Ironman World Championships and had the most incredible time. Our accommodation and host was fantastic and we can't thank Tim enough for his wonderful notes and suggestions. The location of the accommodation was ideal and we were very impressed with the cleanliness and amenities available for us to use. I can truly recommend this as an ideal spot for either the Ironman or just visiting the wonderful Big Island. We have a travel party of 3 adults and hence the two double rooms with two bathrooms was brilliant. We rented a car for the first week but then returned it and travelled by foot for the second week spending plenty of time in the wonderful Kailua-Kona village. A great place to stay and as mentioned before a superb host. Thanks Tim and family for allowing us to stay and we have come away with some lifetime memories.

So this review is long overdue...as we stayed there for our honeymoon just over 10 months ago now! We have taken so long to write a review because we couldn't come up with the words to describe this place! Basically, this was our first home together since we left straight from our wedding reception & stayed there for the first 10 days of our honeymoon. This condo is amazing and far exceded our [already high] expectations! The pictures do not do it justice. I don't want to write a review because I am worried it will book up so much that we won't be able to go back. :( But we just have to. It was so clean and perfect and the loft was so nice! It was close to everything! We did not have (or need) a car the entire time we stayed there! We walked to Alii Drive (right on the waterfront) each morning (after our breakfast and cup of coffee on the beautiful lanai with a lovely view of the ocean in the distance). We got a car later on in our trip, to see the rest of the island, but really you could totally stay there without a car and be fine. In the downstairs closet there is a ton of beach and snorkel stuff...which was so handy! Also, the decor is so nice. Everything matches and there are a lot of greens, which is just cozy and clean and nice feeling. The decor around the condo is tasteful and there aren't a million nick nacks everywhere, but there is nice Hawaiian style and culture to it! The free NetFlix was nice, too...for the nights where we just wanted to relax. We walked to multiple restaurants (lots of great ones on Alii Drive, but other places as well...like Ultimate Burger...mmmmm!), WalMart to do grocery shopping (we saved a lot of $ cooking in the kitchen which was fully equipt with everything we needed in that dept), Target, & just all over. Everything is so close. We even walked to get our car rental (when we finally got one) & COULD HAVE walked to our next stay (we didn't want to leave, but the condo was booked after our first 10 nights there) at the King Kamehameha Hotel (the Marriott hotel that was right on the water had NOTHING on the condo), but our new found friends (neighbors) drove us. Which leads me to the next comment...the neighbors there are amazing. So friendly. They made our trip!!! We talk about the condo at least every other day. We miss it & can't wait to go back!!! It is perfect. The best! Our first home! Tim & Amy were so easy to work with when booking. An all around amazing experience! I could go on...but I'm running out of space!
WOW! There are so many positives about this place! The condo was clean with lovely decor. Felt Hawaiian without the wicker and loud colors. Fell in love with this condo the first time I saw it. I came back to this condo time after time for weeks on vrbo and I am so glad we stayed here! The owner (Tim) was extremely helpful and lightening fast when I would contact him. He took care of any needs or questions we had. Loved the fact that they had stuff for the beach (chairs, coolers, umbrella, etc) along with lots of other things you may need. We didn't eat out much, we cooked in the condo just like if we were home. The location is excellent and took about 2 minutes to walk to the Kona strip on Ali'i. Our kids fell in love with the condo, along with the "pool cat" and Max the dog. None of us wanted to leave! We would highly recommend this condo and hope to stay here on future visits! Mahalo!
There are so many positive things about this condo I don't know if I can fit them all in the space allowed. First I will say we have stayed in Kona before and the other islands and have never stayed in a condo as nice as this one. You will walk in and all your stresses wil melt away. It is so clean and the decorating is awesome. The condo complex is right in town so you don't have to have a car if you don't want to, we walked everywhere!!!! The farmers market was great and the beach is only about a 5 min. walk from the condo. And don't worry if you forgot something at home just check the closet in the hall and they will probably have it in one of the plastic containers. Tim has thought of everything and I mean everything. Before you turn on the AC try opening the frontdoor and lanai door the breeze is amazing and you won't even have to use the air. I would definetly recommend this condo you will be very happy with what you get and it's the best value we have ever gotten. The owners are great to work and answered every question we had. Once again I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a great Hawaiian vacation with absolutely no worries. Thanks again for everything!!!!
My family stayed at this condo in Kailua Kona and enjoyed it tremendously. The house had everything you could wish for, beautiful decor, lovely hardwood floors, all the amenities of home and a great location. There was great attention to detail from the bathrooms, items available for the beach including laundry facilities. The beds were beautifully decorated and the linens were of good quality. I am so glad I chose this particular place, it was the highlight of our trip. It is easy walking distance to restaurants, the shops and the ocean. I would definately come back if I return to Hawaii. There are many stairs and could be a problem for someone who is unable to make the stairs. Otherwise, don't hesitate!
Everything was perfect! Spotlessly cleaned, close to downtown, shopping, restaurants, the ocean, and nightlife! Everything you need for a perfect vacation! The owners and staff at the complex were all very helpful! Nice friendly community. We would love to vacation there again.
1.5 blocks away from the Kona Pier and Ali'i Drive where you're a short and easy 4-5 minute walk from the Iron Man start/finish, the bill fish tournament weigh-ins, outrigger canoe races, annual Christmas and other parades, and all downtown events. You can also SUP, kayak, swim, snorkel or scuba dive at Kam Beach beside the pier or just soak up the sun. Leave the car and walk easily into town for dinner, shopping or sightseeing. Close to all the action but set back, private and peaceful as well. Live Aloha at KBR #4306!
