Overview

Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 baths, sleeps 4 max 6

Beautiful; spacious unit across the street from White Sands Beach on Alii Drive, located four miles south of Kailua Kona Village.

This bright, non-smoking, 1,010 square foot condo, is equipped with many of the amenities you have at home. It is suitable for families, couples, or small groups of friends.

The living areas are carpeted and tiled and the unit is decorated in a tropical style. Our spacious Lanai is a perfect place to relax, share a meal, and enjoy the sunset. The well equipped full size kitchen has most amenities you have at home including a glass top stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker. The living and dining room are open and spacious and feature a large flat screen TV with Blue Ray with many movies to enjoy. A perfect place 'to come home to' after exploring all that the Big Island has to offer.

The pool and spa has just been refurbished and includes a beautiful quartzite stone deck. A barbecue area, tennis courts, and pool table are available as well.

White Sands Beach, a quick walk across the street, is a popular beach for swimming and boogie boarding, and has a staffed lifeguard tower, bathrooms, and a volleyball area. Kahalu’u Beach Park just a few minutes down the road, is a great snorkeling beach perfect for families and kids where the waters are calm and protected. Many varieties of tropical fish and often green sea turtles can be seen there.

About Mike/Cher

Mike and Cher live in the Rocky Mountains outside of Denver Colorado . We love relaxing at our home in Colorado, our Hawaii condo and our new home in Florida as well as working on projects at all 3 places. When we have the opportunity we also love traveling the world. We are both retired now which give us the time to do the things we love.

Mike/Cher purchased this condo in 2004

Why Mike/Cher chose Kona Coast

We bought this property over 14 years ago as we loved quiet peaceful relaxing setting close to the beach. The weather seems perfect to us. Never ultra hot with the breezes blowing and no snow! We looked at several locations before settling on our condo. We chose the Big Island as we like to get away from the major crowds, but still have the opportunity to do some tourist activities. The Big Island has golf, swimming, snorkeling, diving, great beaches (with white, black and green sand), a variety of boat trips, luaus, free hula shows, waterfalls, ancient petroglyphs, beautiful varied scenery and vistas, an Astronomy Center, tropical flowers, great coffee, shopping, galleries, zip lines, star gazing, Farmers Markets, Botanical Gardens, lava tubes, great restaurants, and of course the volcano. There is so much to do and we never have enough time, so I allows enjoy returning again and again.

What makes this condo unique

I always feel at peace when I step through the front door. I'm not sure if it is the relaxing colors, the flowers all around the condo, the trees blowing in the breeze, the birds singing especially in the morning, or just relaxing over breakfast on the lanai. I also love going to the salt water pool in the morning or perhaps trying my hand at a game of pool or just running around after balls on the tennis court, and walking down to the beach.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed the condo but of course concerned that you felt it needed some TLC. Mike and I spend much of our time on island taking care of the condo, upgrading when possible, deep cleaning, replacing linens as needed, making minor repairs, and taking care of anything we think needs that TLC (or as much as possible in the time available to us.) We do understand that a 35 year old building needs attention from time to time. Unfortunately it has been just over a year since our last visit and we did find our fair share of items to take care of. This trip we were able to add new curtains in the living room, a new fan in the bedroom, new front screen/security door, and a new modern tile surround in the main bath to match the rest of the tile we finished last year, as well as new sheets and towels. We hope these upgrades will bring a positive experience for all of our guests, and hope you are able to enjoy them at some future time. Mahalo

Hawaii Vacation

  • 5 of 5

When I was looking for a place for my family to stay there were not to many review at that time but the ones that were there were all good. So I made our reservations and I am glad I did the condo was everything that was described on trip advisor. When we go back we will stay at My Dolphin Cove condo. It had everything that you would need for your vacation. It was our home away from home.

Slice of haven in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was there in the condo right down to the gecko's on the patio. All 6 of us stayed for nine days in this comfortable condo with room to spare. We had two young children ages 4 and 7, there were games in the closet they enjoyed and some for adults also. Also there was snorkel gear hats ice chest just about everything you would need even, bags for shopping (Hawaii does not use plastic, so grab a bag when you go to the store). The Magic Sand beach is just at the end of the driveway and across the street. With a life guard, restrooms, outside shower, and picnic tables too. I would recommend you check the waves each day for small children they came be a bit ruff, but beautiful. Shopping is about 3 miles north with lots to see and a beautiful farmers market to buy fresh produce. Thank you Mike and Cher for sharing your condo with us, can't wait to come back again. Aloha.

Great stay at White Sands

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything we could need. The kitchen was large. Both bedrooms were comfortable. The location and the pool were great. Also the owners were very helpful and friendly. If we come back to the big island we will be staying here.

The property is well located near restaurants and grocery stores. The property was also well appointed in the kitchen and bathrooms. We loved the beautiful beach across the street. The property owner was good to work with. We would recommend this property to friends and family.
