We fell in love with Hawaii during our first visit to Kona in March of 2013 and purchased our condo at Kona Shores knowing we would return again.

We hope you catch the 'Aloha Spirit', as we have, while you relax and vacation in paradise!

Mahalo for stopping by! Enjoy Kona Shores!

Vicki Vaughan purchased this condo in 2013

This unit has been totally remodeled and features new appliances, gas stove, granite counters in the kitchen and a newly remodeled bathroom. A king size bed, sectional couch with a flat screen TV with cable, Wi-Fi, AC and assigned parking. You will truly not want for anything during your stay.

The spectacular sunsets at the pool area will be unforgettable. And, since the pool is literally on the Pacific Ocean you may see dolphins playing, colorful fish, sea turtles, and in season, humpback whales.

The location of this property is amazing and easy to get to! There is a managers office on property, newspaper vending machine, laundry facilities, bike rack, assigned parking, Wi-Fi, cabana and pool that are ocean side. Just a moments walk from your unit.

This was our first time to vacation at friendly Kona Shores, and, in this beautiful studio condo. Everything was immaculate and very well kept. We appreciated having the wifi, so we could keep in touch with family and the air conditioner too, both were nice to have, as many condos in Hawaii do not have these amenities. Also, the California King bed was very comfortable. The modern kitchen is well stocked and we enjoyed having our "Kona Coffee" in the morning with breakfast. Next door, to the North, is also a great place for breakfast or lunch, at The Green Flash Cafe. We also loved the swimming pool, it was so warm and we saw many beautiful sunsets there and also watched dolphins several times from the pool area. The photos of the condo are accurate and the manager is helpful and easy to work with. We were happy to have chosen an oceanside condo complex, and that the condo & lanai came with a "peek-a-boo" view of the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

Sorenson Party was right on the Green Flash is good (and quick) breakfast next door. Hiking and staying at the Volcano House was a great experience. This trip we did the Kilauea Iki Trail (Main trail over caldera was closed due to heavy fumes)A unique experience hiking over steaming crater, it's highly recommended if you have never done it.
Captain Cook snorkeling we'll revisit. This trip we discovered kayaking. You need a permit or go with a boat tour (for preservation purposes). Excellent snorkeling there and Waialea Bay (69's beach) just south of Hapuna Beach (a great boogie board beach).
Also fun to rent a stand up paddle board from Kona Beach Boys at Kailua Bay and paddle the Iron Man swim course. Possible spinner dolphins and close views of whales migrating from Alaska for the winter (you can also view safely from Lava Java or other Alii Drive restaurants near downtown).
Hike Green Sands Beach-not too bad. (We're from Oregon after all) just hot, so bring plenty of water. Oh, last note. Big Island Revealed Book is awesome. Just realized that it's 2003 version. So check for details or ask for local updates/recommendations in addition to using as a reference. Have fun!

The condo was immaculate! Everything was exactly as shown in the pictures...updated and modern. Upon entry, we immediately felt comfortable. It was very nice having beach towels, laundry supplies, and a fully stocked kitchen. The location of the condo made it easy to walk to the downtown shops and restaurants. It was also nice to go for a morning run and jump into the pool! This was our first vacation to Hawaii and the location was ideal. The only thing missing was a view of the ocean from the room. In saying that, it was a very short walk to the pool area. This was a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Dena and Brent,
I am so glad that you both had a great time visiting and getting out on Alii Drive! I know there is only a small view from the lanai, but I am glad that you enjoyed the unit, the pool and that you found everything you needed readily available to you. Much aloha to you both! Vicki and Ron

We spent 2 weeks at this condo. It was absolutely immaculate and so beautiful. It was better than an elite hotel room as it was cozy, had a very comfortable bed and a kitchen that was stocked with all the things you would need to cook, etc. They have lovely granite counters both in the kitchen and out on the lanai. We had breakfast and coffee every morning out on the lanai. We loved the pool area and saw many whales and fabulous sunsets. We would go out for a run every morning right on the road next to the condo and could easily walk in to town whenever we chose to. The pictures are very accurate. We would highly recommend this to anyone! Having chairs for the beach, beach towels, etc. was wonderful. Thank you! We had a wonderful 2 weeks and we will be back!

Aloha! This was our first time to Hawaii and our first time seeing the property in person. I found it to be very clean and I thought when I walked in that it looked exactly like the pictures! So much so that I felt like I'd been there before! We loved the comfortable king size bed and well equipped kitchen. One of the best things was the gate off the Lani that gives you easy access to go in and out of the Lani without having to go through the condo when you're wet from swimming or snorkeling. The pool area is very nice and we were so excited when we got to see two whales breach at the same time!! It's only a short walk to Green Flash Coffee for a great little breakfast and of course great Latte's! There is so much to do within a couple miles but to be honest the condo is so comfortable it was hard to get going in the morning! We could sit right on the Lani with a beautiful blue sky and ocean view, and the palm trees... Well I could go on forever. We even made what we believe to be some lastng friendships. Trust me, we'll be back!
