About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Kahaluu Bay is considered, by many, to be the best snorkeling beach in Hawaii!!! Just imagine yourself relaxing on this top floor condo's lanai balcony, overlooking the palm trees, family beach & snorkeling bay that is just steps from this 15 unit complex. For the more adventurous, Kahaluu also has surfing, with a premier surf school right across the street.

After a morning snorkel in this calm, shallow bay (where you will see an awesome variety of colorful tropical fish, several Green Sea Turtles, and a beautiful array of coral), take a swim and sun bath by the lovely pool that is immediately below your condo!

After a day of playing in the sun, shopping or touring, come back to this spacious, 1200 square foot tropical retreat for a laid back barbeque dinner and a spectacular sunset, the highlight of every evening! Or venture out to one of several wonderful restaurants and sunset venues in the area. (Twelve turtles sleep on a lava rock in front of the hotel open air bar, just a short block away, every evening!)

Hawaii is famous for its Aloha Spirit. We look forward to sharing some of our Aloha with you! We're just a click away...

Location and views unbeatable! Great value.

  • 4 of 5

Can’t beat the uninterrupted sunset views over Kahalu’u beach park and a two minute walk to the best snorkeling and educational beach around. Surfing lessons right there and a short drive to shops, and downtown Kona.

Fit our family of 5 just fine.

Great pool, community bbq grill was immaculate, and friendly neighbors.

Only thing keeping it from a full 5 stars is the unit was feeling a bit tired.

Great value overall and we will stay again if we return to Kona.

Hi Nancy,

Our family had the most wonderful vacation experience! The condo was beautiful, had everything we needed and the view was spectacular. I've never been more comfortable in a vacation rental. We will definately be back, maybe this summer!

Until then-

We had a wonderful time at this apartment, lovely home, great location. Loved the sea view and the close access to snorkeling. The pool was a great addition too.

Dreamy vistas in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is literally right down teh street from the best snorkling beach. Each time we went out on this bay we saw 15-30 varieties of fish. Within a mile of shopping center which includes a Cinema (did not need it), Grocery Store, Drug Store and more. A short drive from the busiest area of Alii drive so this area is relatively quiet. You do get seranaded most nights from the music wafting up from the beach area pavilliion but it is not loud, just sets a tropical mood. We had the pool to ourselves for most of the stay. The pictures are not lying, the view is spectacular and sunsets amazing from this condo. There are boogie boards in the storage area as well as fins for the kids. A couple of beach towels are in the condo. Plenty enough cooking and eating utensils and a grill next to pool if you decide to cook out. Check in check out procedures are so easy and convenient.

We loved our stay at Kahaluu Bay Villas!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Kahaluu Bay Villas! There were plenty of linens, dishes, and fans to keep the condo comfortable and cool. We had plenty of snorkel gear to choose from. We watched sail boats, canoes, and sunsets. It was a wonderful place to stay for all ages. The on-site pool was an added bonus! Thank you! Thank you! Lisa

Great location, views, value, slightly odd layout

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 4 nights. The views from the lanai were very nice. Sunsets were spectacular. Walkable to an amazing snorkeling spot and small surfing waves. Was pretty clean (the fridge was kinda gross on the outside). The biggest beef we had was the bedroom windows open to a shared hallway that was quiet but had lights on all night and the flimsy shades do not block out the light. Also the pillows were lumpy and old. So sleep was an issue for us. In fact we spent one day away from the condo to get some good sleep and see the volcano. But if your family are a strong sleepers, this could be an ideal place.
