Overview

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 BR/ 2 BA next to beach with partial ocean views and mountain views

We have 2 spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and similarly large living room, lanai, dining room and kitchen. The kitchen is stocked with all of your cooking needs in mind. There are 2 covered parking spots and additional parking in visitor spots as well.

Gentle breezes all day and night keep you relaxed and comfortable. Plenty of room for 4 people to enjoy paradise and still feel all the comforts of home. There is a big patio area (covered) adjoining the pool where there are 4 gas grills for cooking whatever you like to barbeque. There is a large pool and large outdoor hot-tub Jacuzzi, pool table and saunas for helping work out the kinks you bring from the mainland.

Our property has beautiful tropical plants and vegetation with unbelievebly gorgeous flowers and subtle flower whiffs that tantalize your senses and make the relaxation all the better.

The tennis courts on our property are well-maintained and free to our guests. We keep boogie boards, beach chairs and coolers for picnics in the condo so you can travel around the island and don't need to buy these things.

Our condo is NOT wheelchair accessible b/c there are 7 stair-steps up or down from the elevator. We have a screen door that can be locked on the front door to enjoy the breezes all day and night.

About Kathy or Martin

We live and work in Colorado and can't get to our second home as much as we would like. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do; that makes it more fun for us to share this slice of heaven!

Kathy or Martin purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kathy or Martin chose Kailua Kona

We owned a condo in Vail, CO for years and decided we enjoyed the tropics and the relaxation we find in Hawaii more. White Sands puts us at the beach and is a beautiful place to lounge at the pool, relax on the lanai and jump off to some of the most unique and incredibly beautiful places in the world.

What makes this condo unique

You can be gone from dawn 'til after dark having some of the most amazing adventures of your life; or you can relax and stay at the property and beach the entire time.

A good home base for our Kona holiday.

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect for our visit to the Big Island. This condo was a great place to come home to at the end of each busy day of adventure. Convenient for our day trip to Volcano National Park, great snorkelling at Kahalu'u Beach Park just down the road and a snorkel day trip from Keahou to Kealakekua Bay. Close to Kona for shopping and easy travel to visit many of the area's historic sites. The two bedroom, two bath set up worked well for two adult couples and it was nice to have the use of the BBQs and swimming pool as well. The only thing we would suggest is better room-darkening blinds or curtains in the bedrooms. We had a great stay! Thanks.

Great location and perfect place for kids.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fantastic. I traveled with my 10 year old son and we were able to boogie board at the beach across the street and come back and hang at the pool. There were a few ant issues in the kitchen but that is to be expected in a warm climate. Kathy was very communicative and helpful to us. We will stay here again on our next trip.

Have fun.

Two Vacationers

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Your condo was very well equipped with condiments and pantry items that we appreciated. TV and WI FI access was helpful and enjoyable. I never got to the tennis courts but it was nice to consider the option. Similarly the games, books and CDs were a nice option, as was the book selection behind the office.

We visited The Three Ring Animal Sanctuary a few miles upland from Kona. Dr. Goody provided an excellent 2 hr. tour explaining animal behavior and allowing interaction with some of the animals for those who wished.

We had some unwelcome animals in the condo in the form of tiny ants on kitchen surfaces. We set some ant traps about but they preferred any crumb we might have overlooked.

There were two door issues. The twin bedroom closet door didn't close properly. And the right side lanai door did not lock.

The woman from your cleaning service accommodated our earlier arrival which we appreciated after a night of flying.

Thank you for contributing to our lovely, relaxing time!

Owner's Response: The very tiny ants are attracted to even almost invisible crumbs and food residue. Our cleaner tries to make sure she gets things perfectly cleaned! For guests during a relaxing vacation it is easy to let things go. We do provide a spray in our utility closet for whomever wants to use it if they do appear. The closet doors will be replaced on our next visit; it s a challenge to keep the closet doors on track. That room has some of our younger guests sleeping there and they do not always know how to use them appropriately.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I chose this condo because of the twin beds in the second bedroom. Our kids don't like to share a bed. The condo was clean and comfy with everything you could need for the beach or pool. Books, games and puzzles too if you need to fill down time. The grounds are pretty and well maintained. Woke up to birds chirping in the morning. Could hear the surf from the pool. We did not go to the beach across the street because our kids are small and the surf was pretty rough the first part of the week. Great snorkeling at the beach just south of the condo though!

Sunsets at the gorgeous White Sands beach across the street from the condo with palm treees in the foreground are a daily event.

Snorkeling is very popular at Kahalu'u beach 1 mile south of the condo, but you can snorkel at White Sands Beach, too!

Our favorite place to visit is the national park, Place of Refuge (or Pu'uhonua o Honaunau in Hawaiian). It is a historical site with 500 year old stone walls, petroglyphs, re-constructed temples and Hawaiian houses and some of the best tide pools, turtle sunning areas and a great beach for scuba, snorkeling, swimming and people-watching. It is worth the admission and the free parking. We go to the picnic area that faces the ocean to the south of the park---same route into area ---and watch the dolfins frolic right near the beach eating lunch at one of the many picnic tables available. This is about a 22 mile or a 45 min drive from the condo.

For one of the top 10 beaches in the world (Conde Nast magazine), drive 45 min to Hapuna Beach. There is a HUGE perfect pale sand beach over a mile wide. The waves are perfect for boogie-boarding, body-surfing and swimming. There is a snack shop, showers, bathrooms and changing rooms. There is a fantastic beach trail going north where you will see whales in the distance all Winter long (take binoculars). The best shave ice (snow cones on steroids) on the whole island (maybe the whole state) is 4-5 miles north of Hapuna and is fantastic for after-beach cooling off before dinner. It is right near the little town of Kawaihae.

We love to kayak at Captain Cook Bay (aka Kealakekua) and the snorkeling is so good a lot of the all-day cruises come to this bay for snorkeling, scuba, swimming and sea life watching (turtles, dolphins, birds).

Going to the east side of the island is another world; MUCH more rain and the tropical vegetation is thick and beautiful. There are waterfalls, world renowned botanical gardens and fantastic state parks. On the southeast side of the island is Volcanoes National Park that has incredible attractions like hiking through a former volcano crater, exploring caves and lava tubes, a fantastic hands on museum about the islands and their formation, hikes along the lava at the ocean's rim where you may be able to find some flowing lava depending on the way the volcano is erupting (remember--it is 2000 degrees--you don't want to get too close). Park service does try to keep people away from the lava---you won't accidentally stumble into it!

Notes:
White Sands Beach is 75 yds from the condo door. You can hear the surf at night to remind you that you are in paradise. It is also called 'Disappearing Sands Beach' since some of the sand will be 300 yds offshore during part of the winter. It is always perfect for sunbathing and beach-volley ball. Pahoe-hoe park is 1 block away and is where the locals practice hula on Saturday mornings right on the oceanfront. There is a free open-air bus that picks up right near this park that is for tourists traveling along the road from Keahou to Kailua Kona. The condo is right between those 2 communities in a nice quiet area. Although there is no central heat and air conditioning, rooms come equipped with ceiling and floor fans and screens to allow the beach breezes to keep the rooms very comfortable year round.
