About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our two bedroom ocean front condo is conveniently located on Alii Drive in Kailua-Kona. This condo was recently remodeled with new furniture, kitchen cabinets and granite countertops. It is one of the most desirable units in the complex with a wrap around lanai that looks directly out to the ocean.

You can sit on the lanai and watch the surfers directly across the street when the surf is up. In the winter months, you will likely see dolphins playing or whales breaching. You can enjoy all of this while sipping a cool drink from the lanai.

The serene, lush tropical grounds of Royal Kahili are well maintained. You may read a book near the Japanese Koi pond where you are instantly relaxed from the tranquil sounds of the waterfall. You can also watch the waves of the Pacific Ocean from the heated swimming pool area which has a BBQ and picnic tables with a shaded cabana.

This is a great place to play cards or have dinner while watching the sunset. A short walk to the left on Alli Drive will take you to the famous White Sands Beach or to the most popular snorkeling beach where you will likely have a chance to swim with the turtles. Walk a quarter mile to the right to purchase gifts at the Ali's Gardens MarketPlace.

We also love to stroll a couple miles down the road to enjoy a cup of Kona coffee at the Lava Java right in the heart of Kailua-Kona town. This town is enjoyed by many who come for shopping, dining, beaches, and night life.

We have stocked this unit with everything you need from boogie boards, games, books, videos, beach towels, beach chairs, ice coolers, stereo, DSL wireless internet, and more.

About Kevin Smith

Our family of seven has had many great memories in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island. There are so many activies we have enjoyed. Some of our favorites include Kayaking out Captain Cook's Monument and swimming with the dolphin, watching the lava at dusk, cliff diving at 'End of the World', hiking to Maklawena Beach, the most beautiful place just to name a few. Our condo has allowed us to spend quality time as a family, which is most important to us. Our condo at the Royal Kahili has all the amenities to make you feel at home. Our hope is that our hospitality makes you feel welcome and will allow you to create your own special memories.

Kevin Smith purchased this condo in 2007

What makes this condo unique

Nice condo, GREAT POOL

  • 4 of 5

Nice, well equipped, functional 2 bedroom condo. Better suited to a family with small children than 4 adults. The heated pool and hot tub are simply great.

26 days in Kona

  • 3 of 5

Thank you Kevin and complex manager John for helping make our stay wonderful. We had 26 days and enjoyed every day! The location is great on A'lii dr. Close to White Sand Beach, and a short drive to other great beaches or snorkeling areas, restaurants, and shopping. Swimming pool was perfect and the maintence staff keeps it all in tip top shape, we enjoyed the herb garden for cooking our meals, bananas, and tomatoes ! We enjoyed meals on the deck while watching surfers and the huge waves that came while we were there, only thing is they took all the sand off of White Sands Beach otherwise known as Magic Sands! Only suggestion would be to add a flat grill or pan to cook pancakes on.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We are five adult friends who had come to the Big Island to do a Habitat for Humanity build and had arrived early to spend time together and explore. The space was wonderful for the four of us who had come the earliest, and adequate for the five of us at the end of the visit. The condo was in a good location to explore all parts of the Island. There were minor physical problems with the condo which were attended to immediately by John, the property manager, who is an easy person with whom to deal. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kevin's condo to any friend or loved one who might come to the Big Island in the future.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

I visited the Big Island for the first time with my two teenage daughters. We stayed here for a few nights and in a high-end resort in Waikola for a few nights. Hands down, they preferred this condo. They loved the condo itself, the community feel, the pool that felt pretty private, the view from the balcony, and the location. The street is a bit busy, but you can't hear it with doors closed or at night. We were close to town and a stellar snorkeling beach. It was great to have a "home" to come back to and the comforts of home so convenient. Also, we were there when a big storm was predicted (never materialized - thank goodness). Kevin was available and responsive when I asked him how I should prepare. Great property- great owner.

Great Condo with a GREAT VIEW!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, and I stayed at the condo for a week in June 2016 and let me tell you, the pictures of the condo do not do it justice. It is a well remodeled, clean, nice condo with an amazing view! The condo was stocked with snorkel gear, beach towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards which was really nice! The condo is only a few minute drive from downtown Kailua which has all the Hawaiian stores and restaurants you could want to visit. Driving the other direction you can be at several nice swimming areas (beaches, but they can be rocky... but that's the nature of the big island) in a matter of minutes. If you're lucky, the Magic Sands beach will have sand during your stay, it did during ours. We would highly recommend staying in this condo, and will probably do so again next family vacation!

The only thing I would mention is that if you have a little baby the vertical supports for the railing on the balcony are wide enough for a baby's head and sideways body to go through. No big deal, we just made sure the screen door stayed closed so our 11 month old did not go out there alone.

Royal Kahili Visit/ Property ID 159241

  • 5 of 5

My 1st ever visit to Kona on the was a complete surprise.

I have been accustomed to Waikiki, Oahu & Lahiana, Maui, for my past Hawaiian vacations. However what I discovered in Kona was the Hawaii, that suits me best at this time and for the feeling of a Hawaiian vacation.

Kevin & Cindy's home is so relaxing and enjoyable with the sounds and feeling of Hawaii all around the Royal Kahili... you will just want to sit on the deck and watch the surfers off in the distance and wait for the tides to bring the Sea Turtles in to the Lagoon. That's right... I forgot to mention the sunset... But being from the West Coast, I still am amazed by how I even stop to watch it.... Can't explain how a Hawaiian Beach Sunset, is different than a California Beach Sunset, but it is...

Everything that anyone could want from a Tropical Vacation, this property has so beautifully provided. The lushness of the foliage to the Geckos, crawling on the vegetation.

All the conveniences of home, is the experience that this property has to offer during your visit/ stay at their home. The main village of Kona is a wonderful, easy walk, jog, or bike ride with all the feelings of all the major tourist Islands and yet so much more "Laid Back, Hawaiian Style"....

The Royal Kahili property is a beautiful place to rest and recreate on your vacation.

I would highly recommend this property, for your vacation.
