About the property

1 bedroom, 1 double bath, sleeps 2-4

This spacious and bright condo (1090 sq.feet/101 sq.meters including lanai) is on the second floor of a quiet building overlooking the 9th fairway of the Kona Country Club with the blue Pacific beyond. Tastefully remodeled with built-in oak cabinets throughout, elegant furniture, and original art on the walls. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Large comfortable lanai for outdoor living, with your own gas barbecue grill. Enjoy ocean views from floor-to-ceiling windows in every room -- even from the king-size bed and the double bathroom. Swimming pool shared among only 48 units. Manicured and fragrant tropical gardens. Easy walk to Keauhou Bay, Sheraton resort, and golf clubhouse. Less than a mile to major shopping center and just a little further to the best snorkeling beach in Kona (Kahalu'u).

Things To Do: Be sure to pick up the free brochures available just about everywhere (airport, shopping areas, hotel lobbies) that describe the many activities you may choose and include valuable discount coupons. They also have extensive listings of restaurants and area maps. Sample titles: Hawaii Gold; This Week Big Island; 101 Things to Do. Another good source of information is the local daily newspaper, West Hawaii Today, available at many locations, including KTA supermarket and Longs drugstore. The Keauhou Shopping Center offers activities in the central court almost every day (music, hula, crafts): check the posted schedule.

Keauhou Canoe Club: See the Island the way the ancient Hawaiians first did: from a double-hulled canoe. The Canoe Club, headquartered on nearby Keauhou Bay (5 min. walk from the condo), promotes the ancient Hawaiian art of paddling. Visitors are welcome on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Two sessions, at 6:30 am and 8:00 am. Show up at the club at least 30 minutes early and members will loan you a paddle, teach you the basics, and take you on a one-hour energetic and magical trip. See the sun rise over Mauna Loa during the early session. Whale viewing in the winter months, spinner dolphins and manta rays all year round.

Aloha Theater in Kainaliu: The Aloha is an old-fashioned theater located in the picturesque village of Kainaliu, just a few miles south of Keauhou on Highway 11. It is home to the Aloha Performing Art Company and regularly presents live shows and musical performances. If a show is on during your stay, don't miss this chance to see good community theater and meet the local residents. A nice cafe is next door, for pre-theater dinner or drinks.

About Eliane Lomax

Started going to Hawaii 30 years ago, first for work, then for pleasure. After a full career in Washington DC in the non-profit think tank sector, retired to eastern Washington state -- at least until we truly retire to Kona.

Eliane Lomax purchased this condo in 2008

Why Eliane Lomax chose Kona Coast

We knew we wanted to be on the Big Island, and when we first walked through the front door of this condo with our realtor, it was love at first sight. It has everything we wanted: ocean views, bright large rooms, manicured gardens, a friendly community of neighbors who care about each other. Always quiet, and yet close to services, shopping, restaurants, Kailua village.

What makes this condo unique

A unique historical area, with the King's birthplace and the ancient fishing village on the Sheraton grounds. The beautiful Keauhou Bay and access to all water sports. The true 'aloha' of the community of paddlers at the Keauhou Canoe Club. The incredible sunsets. The fragrant trees at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mahalo. Steve and I really enjoyed your little corner of the world. They don't call this Paradise for nothing. We went "beach hopping"; went back to Volcanoes National Park, did the Farmers' Market, ate out a couple of times and even took in a movie on the off beach day. We really enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back again real soon.

A Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this lovely condo. It is a beautifully furnished and well kept property. We slept like a dream in the comfy bed and enjoyed the lanai every day and evening as well. Having a BBQ right there was a real treat! The condo is equiped with everything we needed.The location is close to many beaches and golf courses. We hope to return one day soon!

Great place to stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo and location. We started our 2 week trip to the Big Island here and it was a perfect jump off point for the rest of our vacation. Relaxing location with an incredible sunset view off the lanai. Clean and spacious residence, with a super comfortable bed and great tub and the washer and dryer were nice to have. The location south of Kona was great central location for us. We went south to the Place of Refuge and 2 Step Beach for snorkeling with spinner dolphins and turtles (about 45 minute drive). We went north to the harbor to go whale watching with mother and calf humpbacks breaching just off our bow (about 30 minute drive). Taxi ride up to Huggo's ran about $25 and took about 15 minutes. Very relaxing location.

The ONLY place to stay in Kona!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay if going to Hawaii! I was impressed with the grounds, pool and the lovely décor of the condo. Beautiful flowers that emit a sweet fragrance that travels through the condominium. You are just the right distance from shopping for supplies and wonderful art. You are walking distance to a fabulous beach perfect for snorkeling. You hear no traffic, only singing birds and sweet breezes.

There are plenty of travel books and recommendations on places to visit.

I have been telling everyone about this place! I WILL be returning!

Fantastic Time in Kona!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on the Big Island. Loved the condo....especially the view! The pictures don't do it justice. The condo was very spacious. Loved the soaking tub. Enjoyed cooking out on the gas grill and relaxing on the lanai. The grounds surrounding the condo were beautiful. Loved relaxing at the pool and the water was perfect. Convenient to shopping and activities. Had some great outings...diving with Jack's (Manta ray dive), shore dive at Place of Refuge had beautiful coral and colorful fish.. hike to green sand beach was spectacular ....allow 2 hours for round trip hike. Price of condo very reasonable and Elaine was very accommodating.

We call Kona our second home. It’s hard to describe what makes us return to Kona year after year. Perhaps it’s the overwhelming feeling that . . . “you’ve arrived.” Maybe it's what the locals call the "Aloha spirit" that surrounds you, or maybe it's the friendly people, the laid back atmosphere, the beauty and ruggedness of the island. One thing is for sure, it’s the perfect vacation spot. A highlight was kayaking in Kealakekua Bay and having a whale surfacing in front of us . . . it was breathtaking. This is the second time we stayed in this condo and would not hesitate to stay in it again. The property is well kept and always quiet in the evening. It has a swimming pool with lots of lounge chairs. The condo is modern, clean and kept in good working order and comes equipped with all the necessary cooking utensils. The spacious lanai was a favorite gathering place. The view is magnificent . . . palm trees, ocean, tranquil surroundings. The best part of the day is when the world stops to take in the greatest show on earth . . . the sunset. If you want to enjoy paradise and have not been to Kona, what are you waiting for? Aloha!

Keauhou is a beautiful residential and resort area just 6 miles south of the picturesque town of Kailua-Kona, with its great shopping and dozens of restaurants. Bordered by the blue Pacific on one side, and the verdant slopes of Mauna Loa on the other, Keauhou is close to all ocean sports and pleasures. Just a few miles upcountry is the world-famous Kona coffee growing area and picturesque 'old Hawai'i' villages such as Holualoa and Kainaliu. Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, the rainforest of the Hamakua Coast, Mauna Kea, Waimea/Kamuela and the ranch country are all easy one-day excursions..

Other Activities: Outrigger canoe paddling

Golf: The Kona Country Club is open to the public. It offers 36 holes, in the Ocean and the Mountain Courses. Green fees vary from $165 (prime time on Ocean course) to $60 (9 holes in the afternoon). The clubhouse is a 5-minute walk from the condo.
