Keauhou Akahi is one of, if not the first condo complex in Keauhou, even though we have a Kailua-Kona address. This is where the Kings of Hawaii lived, ruled, and relaxed. It truly is a beautiful place. There is a small park with a plaque commemorating the area where one of the Kings had spent time just a few steps down the road from this condo at one of the islands smaller boat harbors. There are many other parks, beaches, and hidden treasures close by and also all around the island. A grocery, drug store, movie theatre, restaurants, coffee shop, doctor, and shopping is just a half mile away at the Keauhou Shopping Center. 'Snorkel Beach' is a mile away for a mostly protected by reef swimming area for snorkeling and surfing including a picnic area. An active volcano is a couple hours away by car as you drive thru coffee and macadamia nut plantations to get there. There is snow on top of the mountains in the winter with desert like conditions at Kona's airport. Then it's nearly a jungle on the other side of the island by Hilo. Active by day and quiet at night this area is a place to relax and enjoy. A place where you can find a deserted beach, plop down, and then realize you can't see anything but sand, sea, and trees. You can see turtles, whales, and dolphins in the ocean, with goats, pigs, chickens, turkey, and a few exotic animals as you drive around the island. Swimming with dolphins, parasailing, jet skies, fishing, boating, zip line, four wheeler, horse back riding, helicopter tours, and so much more are located on the island. Snorkel gear and two good quality full sets of golf clubs are in the unit available for your use so you'll have no airline extra bag charge fees.
This unit has a kitchen with good appliances, a microwave, dishes, coffee pot, toaster, blender, cooking supplies, and all the kitchen accessories you will need. Lots of pillows, big towels, master bed with 620 thread count linens, and a stocked bathroom. A big chaise lounge and a teak table with chairs are on the lanai. Inside is a living area with quality furniture including a oversized bamboo chair and couch, a couple of side tables, queen bed sofa with coffee table, TV with basic cable, and stereo with DVD player. The quality stereo has CD/DVD, surround sound, and an iPod player. There is a separate dining area with bench seating and a desk on opposite side. Mostly carpeted with some tile and painted in Hawaiian colors. It is one of the few units with air conditioning. The view from the third floor is what it's all about. It truly feels like Hawaii inside and out. No phone and no Internet/wifi. Your cell phone and the AT&T 3G/4G network works fine at this location. There is no elevator with 28 steps up to the third floor for the million dollar view from this unit. Better than a hotel by far as I make up for it with great amenities, extra comforts, and a home away from home feel that you will enjoy during your stay. When you stay here the place is all yours. So sit back, relax, and unwind.

It's all about the view. You won't find another condominium complex that has the view of Keauhou Akahi. I'm not kidding. Flowering trees, the pool, golf course, and ocean views all from this unit. Not many places can match that. With the privacy of these units and the beauty of the surroundings it's a place you won't soon forget. If you don't love it and move out within the first 24 hours of your stay I'll refund your money minus the cleaning fee.
This unit is the one on the third floor overlooking all you would want to see. The ocean with whales playing November thru March, the ninth tee box of the public Kona Country Club, flowers attracting the Monarch Butterflies and also the pool all just off the 'lanai'. The best part is almost no (if at all) neighbors can see you sitting on the lanai. It's very private. You could get away with not renting a car as there is a 'trolley' that runs up and down Alii Drive all the way to Kona. And remember the shopping center is only a half mile away. It's a four to five minute walk to the water and Sheraton Hotel or the public golf course.
A million dollar view with warmth and beauty surrounding you on all sides. The Sheraton Hotel is just down the road but hiding behind Palm trees from your view on the lanai. Otherwise it's the flowers, golf course, and palm trees running your eyes toward the great ocean view. When the wind is calm you can smell the flowering trees. When its blowing you can hear the wrestling palm leaves. Add your favorite beverage and all your senses can be tickled in this one place of paradise. You are forced into a state of relaxation while staying here at Keauhou Akahi. A third floor view is ten times nicer than ground level. I can't imagine any disappointment.
