ONE COOL KONA CONDO

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

One Cool Kona Condo

Aloha Ohana,

One Cool Kona Condo is super clean unit with really pretty designer touches. My unit features everything you need to make your stay a pleasant one. It is said a picture is worth a thousand words. so just take a look and you'll be hooked. Located on the top floor (second story) just left up the stairs from the lobby makes it a snap to check in and unload your car. Don't worry though, this is a solid concrete block building built in 1969 by Japanese designers, so is incredibly quiet inside. Once inside relax and enjoy a cool drink and pop your iPod into the iHome lamp and listen to some soothing island music. This will get you into the laid back groove of the Big Island. Once you are in the groove, head back to the lobby and check out the pool and hot tub for dip or follow the beautiful garden path past the pool area straight to Alii Drive to enjoy oceanfront dining and shopping. Whether staying just a few a days or a month, you will just love my Kona home.

Mahalo,

Zane

I came to Kona about 15 years ago and fell in love with the Big Island. I returned a few times and in May 2013 stayed at the Islander in one of the units then returned a few days later after circling the island, and found a few units for sale. This one caught my eye as it was nicely renovated by a local writer as quiet place to put her thoughts to paper. Next thing you know I had purchased it. I put my artwork and personal touches in place and there you have it. I hope you enjoy the spirit and charm my place has to offer.

Owner/Manager purchased this condo in 2013

This unit has a partial ocean view and a lovely view of the gardens and pool area.The unit faces east and west and has wonderful cross ventilation with the ocean breezes. The property itself is safe, secure, and well maintained with 24 hour on site security. It is the perfect spot for someone who wants to be close to all the amenities without having to have a rental vehicle. The ocean, beaches, shopping, dining, entertainment, and farmers market are all steps away outside on famous Alii Dr. Major shopping can also be found within a five minute drive such as Target, Ross, Pier One,Walmart, Macy's, Longs Drugs, Ace Hardware, and grocery stores.

The completely renovated unit also comes with several bonuses to make you feel at home. There are two beach cruiser bicycles for your use to cruise around downtown.There is a large cooler and a smaller softsided cooler for day trips to the beach and keeping extra ice and drinks cold. The galley kitchenette has a hot plate, convection oven, microwave, coffee grinder and maker, rice steamer, cuisinart blender, as well as plenty of dishes, glassware, barware, utensils, and cooking utensils. For outdoor cooking there is a stainless steel gas grill located three doors down with tables and umbrellas. There are also two nice stainless steel gas grills by the pool for poolside dining. The travertine shower features a nice massaging shower head.The bamboo floors and top of the line ceiling fan also add to the airiness of the unit. There is also AC for your total comfort. Finally you can relax on the queen size pillow top mattress or the over stufed chair or futon both of which convert into a single bed, and watch the Hi-Def 32 inch tv with dvd, cable and wi-fi included. there is a nice outdoor shower poolside for rinsing off the beach sand and salt before you return to the unit

In the heart of paradise

As soon as we walked in the door we said wow this is so nicely done. This studio doesn't feel like a studio. The decor is fantastic with an island feel and the remodeling of this place makes the space feel very large. The condo is extremely clean and provides pretty much every amenity I use at home plus a few extras that came in handy. The location is absolutely perfect. Close to everything. Sunset and ocean front sea wall is right across the street. Downtown Kona is only a few minutes away. Shopping, restaurants, nightlife all within minutes. The condo is located on a beautiful, lush and well kept lot. You get the island feel from your patio and its very quiet. Even for being so close to everything. I would say this place is almost perfect and made me want to buy it and stay forever. I will definitely be looking at the availability of this condo when I return!

Great getaway for two

  • 5 of 5
This "One Cool Kona Condo" was exactly as the name implied! We always choose rentals over hotels when traveling, and this was the nicest we've stayed in to date. It was beautifully up kept with modern furnishings and perfect for two. The convenient location was within walking distance of the waterfront and all the best shops and restaurants. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner personally and hope to do business again in the future!

Comfortable, well stocked studio apartment. Laundry one floor down so very convenient. Pool and hot tub good. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the birds. The apartment is very central and we liked being able to walk to the beach, the restaurants. The beach at the Courtyard Marriott is white and sandy.
Fantastic trip up Mauna Kea to the Visitors' Centre for night viewing. Saw the moons around Jupiter and the craters on the moon through the telescopes. Thoroughly enjoyed the drive through to Hilo and the Pacific Tsunami Museum there. Highly recommend it.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week and couldn't have been happier! The location is great - right downtown and across the street from the beach, yet the condo is quiet. The entire condo is beautifully updated and had everything we needed and more, and the bed was also really comfortable. It is a great place for a really affordable price. It was the perfect space to come home to after spending all day outdoors at the beach, hiking or doing other outdoor adventures. We rented a car for part of the time, and always had parking, either in the parking lot or right on the street near the condo. We also were within walking distance of lots of restaurants and activities. Everyone at the resort was friendly, and having security at night was a plus. The wifi worked great, and the kitchen, while minimal, was good for our needs, as we didn't plan on doing any cooking that involved more than a microwave. We often walked down to the farmers market about a block away and bought fresh fruit. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again when we come back to Kona!

Cool Condo Meets Expectations

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two relaxing weeks in this condo. It is exactly as described with comfortable furnishings and impressive wood flooring and ceiling fan. The kitchen is fully equipped and we ate breakfasts and prepared lunches every day. The complex is centrally located and we were able to walk to some wonderful restaurants in the evening. Some of the restaurants that we particularly enjoyed were Splashers, Humpys and the Outback.The condo faces the central courtyard which is beautifully maintained and includes a lovely pool and hot tub. After meeting several other vacationers in the complex we realized that we had the best condo in the complex. The condo is on the second floor and is only accessed with stairs. There are a limited parking spaces in the complex so street parking is necessary if you are out with your vehicle any later than 4 p.m. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and had a local contact if there was a problem. We have told several friends about this condo and would recommend it highly to friends and family.

Really Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5
The condo is exactly as described - a really nice spot to stay in. Right in the heart of Kona but quiet and private. This condo is a lot nicer than pretty much any others in this price range. I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely stay here again. We had a small issue with towels and sheets but the owner took care of it by the next day after our arrival. Everything you need for a lovely stay is provided, including nice kitchenware. Comfy furniture too. The entire complex is well maintained and we enjoyed the central location. The pool and other complex features also looked nice although we didn't use them.

In addition to all the amazing shops, dining, entertainment, and beaches within a 5 minute walk of the condo here are some of my favorite places to see and things to do while enjoying my time on the island.

1. Deep sea fishing- Call Shawn Palmer at 808 238-8446

* Fantastic boat and on our trip we caught a 388lb Blue Marlin.

2. Drive the island. If you have a day to do some exploring you can cruise the whole island. It takes 10-12 hours but well worth it to enjoy all the island micro climates.

3. If youre not up for the whole island at least drive the Hamuakua coast towards Hilo. Breathtaking drive and plenty of places to stop and enjoy beaches, waterfalls, botanical gardens, and state/county parks.

4.Enjoy a day at the beach. Within walking or bike riding distance I enjoy Honl's Beach Park and Magic Sands Beach. For the more adventurous take a drive North up the Kona Coast. Some of my favorite beachs include:

a. Kiholo Beach- a black sand beach with day and overnight camping use

b. Puako Beach( Also known as Beach 69or Waialea Beach) A beautiful white sand beach with trails, trees, shade, picnic tables, and amazing snorkeling. This is part of the Hapuna State Park which is noted for its amazing beauty, snorkeling, surfing, and ammenities.

* There is a $5 fee for non-residents but worth it for the snorkeling and beauty

c.Spencer Beach Park-This is a day or overnight camping beach. This is an amazing spot to swim. Warm calm waters, and also wonderful snorkeling.

d.Kekaha Kai State Park( Also known as Veterans beach for being across from Veterans Cemetary)- This is a beautiful white sand beach that looks like its out of a Travel Channel commercial. Only thing here is there is no shade so and umbrella would be a good idea.

5. Camping- There are many wonderful parks on the Island to camp.Make sure you get a permit before you go and then enjoy the beauty the Island has to offer.

My favorite Campsites...

a. Spencer Beach Park

b. Laupahoehoe Point Beach Park

c. Mackenzie State Park

6. Dining. There are lots of places on the Island for all budgets. A few places I enjoy

a. Bite Me Fish Market-Honokohau Harbor. You catch em they cook em. Also a great menu and good beer prices. try the Sake shot!

b. Lulu's- Know to be best breakfast on the island

c. Humpys-Bar food, best Island beer selection, and the perfect place to watch sporting events on their many tv's

d. Huggos- Happy Hour specials and amazing sunset views

e. Jackie Rays-About a mile down Kuakini Hwy excellent seafood

f. Quinns Almost By The Sea-Great seafood and known for their Ono

g. Canoe House- On the water about a 1/4 mile from unit in the Kona Inn Shopping Village. Best pork sliders and Mai tai's

7. Shopping-Located within a few hundred feet of the complex are many shopping areas for souveniers and Island goodies and keepsakes. there is a nice mile walk from here to Kailua Pier full of shops, restaurants, and bars. On the second Sunday of the month they close the street for a flea market with wonderful artisans, coffee purveyors, food purveyors, and entertainment. There is also a daily farmers market (except Mondays) a block away in the church parking lot. For those needing the comfort of home. Within a 5 minute drive there is Target, Ross, Walmart, K-mart, Pier One, Macy's, Costco, Long Drugs, Groceries, Ace Hardware and more...

Island Naturals grocery store is sort of like a mini Trader Joes/Whole Foods. It is wonderful for your organic needs and I enjoy the bulk food section for spices, granola, trail mixes etc... So youre not stuck with more than you need on your stay.
