Overview

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 With Ocean And Mountain Views

We absolutely love our condo at Kona Pacific Condos and we're sure you will too. Just a 5 minute walk to town and a 3 minute walk to the beach, the condo complex is incredibly quiet and the grounds and building are kept super clean and manicured by the amazing staff.

The condo itself is a one bedroom two bath unit that comfortably sleeps 4. There is a queen bed in the large master bedroom as well as a queen Murphy bed. You could even squeeze in one more on the couch if necessary. A two large sliders open up onto the 200 sq ft lanai which overlooks the grounds and out to the ocean and mountains, giving the room a wonderful sense of openness that benefits from the cooling trade winds.

The master bath has a huge tub/shower in which to luxuriate after your day in the sun in preparation for a night on the town. And if you feel like settling down on the lanai for a quick nap or a drink before dinner the setting is very private and cannot be seen from other condos.

The living room is large, light and airy, and affords a great view out onto the lanai, which again overlooks the gardens and the ocean. Here, too the trade winds have a cooling effect that benefits the entire condo and the air conditioning that is available isn't really needed because who wants to close the doors to the lanai anyway?

The kitchen features granite counter-tops and a breakfast bar where drinks can be served for your apres beach party. A galley kitchen has everything you need to prepare as many meals as you choose to prepare. The kitchen is stocked with items such as a waffle iron, coffee maker where you can enjoy locally grown Kona coffee, and blender where you whip up your Pina Coladas. Down by the pool, the cabana has two large gas grills where you can get a nice sear on that Ahi you picked up at the local market.

Outside, the lanai has a very private location that prevents others from looking in while affording a nice view of the ocean towards downtown as well as the mountains to the north west. We have two underground nose to tail compact parking spots to keep you car nice and cool. Honl's beach is a 3 minute walk and provides a gentle surf, shaded areas and picnic tables, suitable for family outings. Should you decide not to go to one of the beaches in the area, the pool is just downstairs and is quiet and suitable for relaxing. The cabana provides shade and adjacent grills for cooking as well as a nice, quiet place for a chat, or a cozy place to read a book all well within the view of the pool.

But, this is just the start of your great adventure! Hiking, waterfalls, road biking, paddle boarding, bogey boarding, snorkeling and many more activities are available. We have a large selection of guide books to peruse while sipping your morning coffee and a personal concierge service is also available if you need recommendations during your stay.

We provide most everything you will need to enjoy your stay including everything from bed linens, beach towels, blankets and chairs to a complete kitchen and even a cooler to take down to the beach.

The condo has a stackable washer/dryer, dishwasher, two cable TV's, blue ray player and internet. (Internet service, while dependable, is provided through an outside service provider so we cannot control or take responsibility for outages)

About Colleen Helm

We are Steve and Colleen Helm and we live in Bozeman, Montana where we ski 6 months and bike 4 months a year. Unfortunately, there are two more months in the year that we like to refer to as 'mud season'.

We never thought we'd be 'Hawaii people' but in 2010 we attended a business meeting and were hooked! The biking, hiking, and surfing were great...and the food! I guess the rest is history. We like to go someplace during the Montana mud season in spring and fall and Hawaii really resonated with us. It's a place where no matter how hard we play, we still feel relaxed and recharged when we get back, ready to go back to work...for at least a couple of months...then its time to hit the Kona Coast again.

Colleen Helm purchased this condo in 2012

Why Colleen Helm chose Kailua Kona

Once we determined that we were interested in buying a place in Kona we looked at a lot of places. Everything from right downtown or right on the beach to right on the golf course but none of them seemed right. It was too loud downtown, the places on the beach were loud and cramped and the golf courses seemed too stuffy.

Upon entering the driveway of Kona Pacific, the first thing we noticed was that we relaxed immediately. The grounds were spotless and manicured and so we felt like that set the tone for the rest of the complex which did not disappoint. When I go on vacation, I feel like I'm paying good money and I don't want to stay in a place that's run down or dirty. Part of the relaxation aspect is knowing what you can expect and getting what you paid for. We feel like Kona Pacific provides that experience.

What makes this condo unique

The location is absolutely perfect without being in the middle of the hubbub of downtown. You can literally stroll down the hill and be at Huggo's on the Rocks, the first restaurant/bar on Ali'i Drive, in 4 minutes. You can also walk 3 minutes out of the driveway and down the path to a quiet beach park with trees for shade, picnic tables, grass and sand.

Additionally, we just remodeled the entire condo. Everything from the granite countertops and cabinets in the kitchen to the tile, paint, carpet, and bath and kitchen fixtures is brand new.

A great place to stay. A person can walk to the Beach and watch the waves or walk to the Shops and Restaurants and Farmers Market on Ali Drive. I enjoyed sitting out on the lanai or using the swimming pool area when we weren't touring the Island. The underground parking was a big plus for keeping the car cool when it was parked. If we come back to the Big Island we would want to stay here. The Condo was clean and well maintained. Colleen and Holly were very nice to deal with

Stayed at during Ironman World Championship 2014

  • 4 of 5

No surprises from descriptions. Distance to and from the center of town (Dig Me Beach) is about a 12-15 minute walk. Literally, just steps away from Ali'i Drive and the marathon course. Very quiet location if you are wanting a place that is a little away from the noise and commotion of Ironman week...but 10 minute walk from the Expo. A 2-5 minute easy walk to good restaurants and variety.

Excellent and very comfortable condo!! WE LOVED IT!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying this condo with many reasons.

This property is so clean and very organized. They have everything we needed. I had no problem cooking everyday because they had everything I needed to use, enough dishes and cups for five of us. My three kids enjoyed having breakfast in beautiful cozy lanai. Big bathroom with clean nice bunch of towels, two big beds were enough for all of us to sleep. And the building kept all clean and well maintained. We enjoyed playing at the swimming pool there, too.

I also have to mention about good location! Walking distance to the beach, the restaurants and the shops. We will definitely stay there again if we go to the big island again (which we will…) and I will recommend this place to all my friends and family members. Thank you very much!!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in this condo! It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay on the Big Island. The lanai was private and relaxing--a wonderful place for a yummy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The kitchen had everything we needed, there were plenty of towels in the two bathrooms--which was a definite plus! The underground parking was great and so convenient. It was so nice to have beach towels and a cooler and other beach supplies--chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, etc. The location was fantastic with lots of stores and restaurants nearby and close to the airport. It made for a great home base while exploring the island. Everything was clean and well taken care of. Colleen and Holly were great to work with--so helpful and friendly! I would definitely recommend this condo to friends and family!

Clean, comfortable & quiet

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to the big island and our condo stay helped make it an enjoyable vacation. We found the condo to be clean, comfortable and quiet. The location was great,

within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We appreciated the beach equipment, cooler, washer, dryer and kitchen. If given the opportunity to return, we would definitely stay here again and would also recommend it to our friends and family.
