About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Thank you for considering our condo. We have been with VRBO from the time they first went online. I really enjoy what I do and have a tremendous passion for The Big Island. In our condo, I like to pay attention to detailing when decorating our unit.

Ahhhhhh…… Paradise. ALOHA, You have found the perfect Hawaiian Vacation Spot. We are located right at the BEST snorkeling beach on the Big Island, even the lifeguards were talking about it when we were there in Oct. It can't be beat. If you love to snorkel, this is the condo you want. The snorkeling is absolutely incredible and since you are right there, you have the opportunity to go morning, noon and early evening. There are so many species of colorful fish and they are so friendly. When recently and I felt like I was in 'Fish Heaven,' they were that beautiful. Also, this is a Bay where many sea turtles hang out. They love swimming along with you. I will be happy to share some of our pics or You-tube video with you. As for the beach, it is perfect for little ones too. Our generally gentle beach is only steps from the condo. I have some pictures on this site and have more if you want to see them. (they only let me post 20  ) During the Winter months the surf to the North part of the bay kicks up making it a great surfing spot. Just walk a block North to the local Surf Shop and rent snorkeling gear, take surf lessons or rent a paddle board. Went with our Grandsons (ages 8 and 10 this Summer and they loved the surf lessons given by Ben, who by the way is Great with kids) It was definitely the highlight of their Summer. Also note, the Bay area is pretty much protected and great to snorkel any time. AND, don’t forget to try the shaved at the beach from the food truck that comes daily.

From the condo OCEAN Views are yours! Our New Designer Decorated Condo can be your oasis away from home. Walk in the door to the sound of Hawaiian music from our Bose system welcoming you. The view of the Ocean as you open the door is breath-taking, I am sure you will agree. We are the newest construction on Alii Drive in the last 20 years! The condo has all you will need for your home away from home. I love all the colors of Hawaii, so we incorporated that throughout the condo. Open the triple sliding French door and cross over the teak threshold onto the lanai, take in the beautiful ocean view, smell the air and listen to the native birds while watching the palms gently sway in the tropical breeze. At this point.....Ahhhh you will know you are in 'Paradise.' Mornings and evenings are a real treat. In the morning you will enjoy your views of the coastline and beach. You will see and hear an array of brightly colored songbirds singing their morning songs. Early Wed. morning you will see luxury cruise ships sailing into port. In the evenings, while enjoying your dinner, you will be treated to one of those unforgettable Kona sunsets where the colors of the sky and sea are beyond description and quite possibly your imagination. Watch closely.......... you might be fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the famous 'green flash'. Phil has seen it, but I never have.....!

Our condo is large, luxurious, and has all the amenities you need. The condo features state of the art design from the granite counter tops to the glass door cherry wood cabinets completely stocked with colorful dishes. The bathrooms have glass block showers and art glass sinks, just to name a few. All of the rooms as well as the lanai have tropical ceiling fans and tray ceilings. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room with Disc player and a TV in each bedroom with disc player. We have free wi-fi internet and free long distance to the U.S. and Canada.

Kona is a very simple residential beach village with a beach town flair... Low-rise condos intermix with homes and parks, snorkel lagoons and little sandy coves.... a real homey feel compared to the resorts. You will fall in Love with The Big Island. Every time we go, I am on the lookout for more beaches and fun things to do. I have a long list with lots of links that I am happy to provide to you.

About Gail Eddy

Owning a piece of Hawaii, has always been our dream. We went to Kona in 2007 stayed at The Beach Villas at Kahalu'u, Phase I and were told Phase II would be build. We jumped at the chance to have the first choice for what we think is the best condo in Phase II. The condo has incredible views of the coastline as well as the Beach. We wanted a place for us as well as our now grown and married kids, and grandkids to enjoy. We wanted a gentle beach and Love to snorkel. Kahalu'u is just much color and colorful fish there along with numerous sea turtles. I have numerous pictures I would love to share if you would like me to send you some.

There are also historical grounds all around Kahalu'u for you to enjoy. There are many petroglyphs just across the street. I will be happy to share all the information with you.

Gail Eddy purchased this condo in 2009

Why Gail Eddy chose Keauhou

The Location, Location, Location. How can you go wrong owning a piece of Paradise at the Best Snorkeling Beach on the Island. Kahalu'u has everything we had wanted, the gentle snorkeling/swimming beach. The abundant sea turtles you can swim with,check You Tube 'Konagail' to view our recent video. There are also literally hundreds of species of colorful fish. I have so many great pics, I would love to send you some, just ask.

If you like nature, you can hike to the many secluded Ocean areas along Ali'i Drive. White Sands Beach is a nice walk and about 1/2 mile away. You can stroll through the grounds of the former Keauheou Outrigger Hotel where you will find ancient fish ponds, King Kameamehaha's old stomping grounds and an ancient birthing area by the Ocean just to the South of the hotel.

What makes this condo unique

You won't want to leave the Lanai. We have colorful fiestaware dishes to make your table very Hawaiian and beautiful. Cast your views on the swaying palms and ocean, you won't want to leave the privacy of your lanai. I like to pick up a fresh Hawaiian bouquet at the market in town for $10.00 It is sure to bring you enjoyment. Barbeque a steak or some fish down at the pool and take it up to the lanai and enjoy your evening by candle light while listening to Hawaiian music as the breeze gently blows. Bring back the romance. You won't find any more perfect ambience. The view of the coastline as well as Kahalu'u Beach is incredible.

The lanai features beautiful furniture where you can relax, read a book, sip your tropical drink, eat your meals and have your morning coffee.....ahhhh.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had an absolutely fabulous time in Kona and your condo was great! Thank you so much for letting us stay there for a week. It was one of the best vacations we've had and we all agreed we'd love to go back some day. The kids had fun staying in their own room and the sand/beach toys were so nice to be able to borrow. Thanks again - you have an amazing home in Kona and what a great location!"

So nice!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Kona with my wife and 2 kids ages 6 and 4. The condo was the perfect setup for us. 2 separate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Everything was clean and all supplies were provided. We made good use of the beach chairs, umbrella and beach toys. Location is right across from some great snorkeling as well. My wife even said the condo was just perfect and she's very picky about these things. Thanks for hosting!

Kona living at its best!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Kona, so I knew roughly where I wanted to stay. When I came across this unit I knew this was the one I wanted. We were very comfortable in the condo, with stunning views from the Lanai. Located close enough to "The Kona Strip" yet far enough out to not be bothered with the crowds from the big resorts or ships that come in. The unit is located a short two minute walk to "Turtle Beach" and it proved its name as we saw at least four turtles in our ventures down to the beach. This water is perfect for snorkeling and we had stunning underwater views of the marine life. Relaxing with a feel of home, this condo was perfect for our stay! Everything we needed for the kitchen and laundry was right there in our condo, making it very easy to pack knowing we could simply do a quick wash and not have heavy bags full of clothes!

Wonderful Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many Rental by Owner locations. This is the best one yet. The location was perfect for us with the snorkeling beach across the street, the shopping center nearby, and good access to the main highway. We especially appreciated that the unit is well maintained and all the appliances, TVs, etc. worked perfectly. We also enjoyed the fact that the building orientation provided all day shade to the lanai. This meant that we could use it from early morning to evening in perfect comfort. Gail called several times to be sure we satisfied with the unit. The building manager came by to introduce herself and make sure that everything was OK. We definitely hope the unit will be available for our next trip to the big island.

Outstanding in every way

  • 5 of 5

Two couples shared the condo, we appreciated that the bedrooms are on separate sides and the bathrooms can be used separately. The washing machine and drier were life savers since we were able to pack lightly and wash our clothes when needed. The kitchen was well supplied so we could cook if we wanted and the the grocery store was very convenient. Loved the balcony, coffee in the morning with the birds singing, eating our meals, and then playing cards at night. We just couldn't get enough of the view. This side of Kona is very protected by the tall volcanoes. While other parts of the island were getting rain and wind, we were enjoying perfect weather. A great location, far enough from downtown to have fewer crowds but still close enough to enjoy the amenities. Just can't say enough good things.

Outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We had a third floor condo with nice view from the lanai. Proximity to beach and excellent snorkeling, great shopping mall with restaurants and outstanding grocery store. Enjoyed cheap fresh ahi and papayas! Everything was clean and in order. Parking convenient. Far enough from town to be quiet and close enough to be convenient, but we went there only once.

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

First time visitors on Big Island and everything was beyond our expectations. The condo is beautiful, clean, well decorated and most importantly well located. You cross the street and amazing snorkeling awaits you and best of all, you can go before the crowd comes. There is a grocery store five minutes from the condo. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset on the lanai. Gail provides bodyboards, a cooler and beach towels. We used the AC and the only negative is that it has a timer attached to the AC. I can't wait to go back!

Rent a Kayak from Lonnie
Car: recommended

Kayaks available at $40.00 per day at neaby Keauheou Bay. It is within walking distance. Lots of GREAT boat trips that go out to snorkeling/diving locations such as Captain Cook and City of Refuge which are about 20 miles or less from the condo. The Bay where you catch the boats is only 1/2 mile away. Enjoy the open air trolley that runs every hour. Ride into town, the shopping center, Sheraton Hotel, the Pier, beaches, etc. It is very relaxing and excellent scenery along the way. It is fun to take into town in the evening, stroll around in the stores, restaurants and bars over the water. Then catch a ride back on the trolley. It has a stop just across the street from the condo and is very convenient.

Also, we are near the Sheraton Hotel where you can go watch the Giant Manta Rays every night. They have a light in the water and the Manta's are incredible. You can view them right from the patio at the Sheraton...wonderful experience. If you decide to do the dive yourself, you can catch the boat right there at nearby Keauhou Bay. I have heard it is really awesome.

We love morning strolls along beautiful Alii Drive. There are so many little coves and areas where you can just walk out on the smooth lava rock inbetween homes and take in the gorgeous views. I also recommend going to Googlemaps and just following the arrow along Alii Drive from the Pier in Kona or from our complex, which is 78-6721 Alii Drive. You can see what is really like and take in the beauty yourself.
