|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
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...
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!
Traveling with older teens (this was a graduation/vacation trip), we needed a condo with 2 bedrooms/baths. The twin beds in the second bedroom with the full bath made this an easy decision. (Along with the short walk to Kahalu'u Beach Park for early morning snorkeling !). The Keauhou Shopping Center is a 5 min drive down the road for groceries, etc. (KTA Superstore, Longs Drug, restaurants, theatre...) which was very convenient. The condo was clean, well equipped and ready for a great stay! The owners and Knutson Management were also very easy to work with and responsive to our emails & phone calls in advance of our stay. We recommend and hope to return!
The property management company was very responsive, though it's clear that there isn't a lot of upkeep in terms of immensity maintenance. That said, our family was there for the adventure and not to sit around the condominium. Everything functioned fine; stove, sinks, laundry, bathroom, etc., so for our family that doesn't need a five-star experience this place actually worked really, really well. The location is amazing and is a great fit for being close to awesome snorkeling beaches and stores for getting fresh fish to grill. I definitely recommend staying here if your family is similar to ours; that is about the Hawaii experience and having a great geographic center to operate from. The price is right and the management company was very responsive and accommodating.
We stayed in the unit from Nov 13-26. We loved the location - across the street from what is probably the best snorkeling beach on the Big Island and within easy walking distance of a small shopping centre where we could get groceries. The unit has a well equipped kitchen and all the rooms are spacious with a balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. On clear nights it gives you a very good view of the sunsets. Restaurants and excursions are a little further away and downtown Kona is about 5 miles so you will need a car to get around. Parking was provided with the unit.
If you don't want to swim in the ocean the pool is a nice size and it was never busy. The property was clean and well maintained. We would recommend this unit if you are looking for a place in the Kona area.
This spacious 2 bedroom condo is gorgeous. The bedrooms and baths are wonderfully appointed.
The living area is open and airy. Everything that is needed for staying in a condo is provided, even the snorkeling gear. The views of Keauhou Bay and the condo pool from the balcony are unobstructed and beautiful. Watching the sunset or the boats in the bay from the balcony is so relaxing.
It's only a half block walk to the beach for snorkeling and swimming.
We definitely recommend this property to our friends.
The amenities at the condo were wonderful. It was clean and spacious. It even had some beach gear (snorkels and masks). We were there with our 11 year old daughter and after snorkeling it was pool time! It was nice to have underground parking. We took surfing lessons from Kona Surf School at the local near the beach - great fun! They have a farmers market across the street one day a week which has lots of souvenirs and great local food. Pick up the current free travel mags for local events. We will definitely be back.
