Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Ideally located just across the beach from Kahalu'u Beach Park. This is a great place to stay if you like to snorkel, surf and swim. If not it is close to everything else.

Easily accessible, convenient and with good under water scenery, Kahalu'u Bay is the most user friendly snorkel Beach on the island. Unit is large and has had recent upgrades.

The pool and BBQ overlooking the bay make a great spot to relax and congregate after a day of exploring and shopping!

And don't forget the awesome view

About The Owner

We have been to every Island many times but we decided to buy here on the Big Island. We have enjoyed our place and try to visit as many times as possible. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

We love the beautiful location. Right across from the best Snorkel Beach at Kahaluu bay. We have a great view of the bay and the surfers. During the winter season we can see the whales breaching. We added a spotting scope to see them even better.

What makes this condo unique

We have snorkel gear and a surf board. All you have to do is walk across the street. We have beach chairs, towels and ice chest if you don't want to get in the warm tropical water.

Fabulous Vacation Spot with Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

What a delight to stay at your condo just steps away from our most favorite snorkeling beach! We ate every meal on the lanai enjoying our beautiful view. Thank you for having the beach chairs, umbrellas and mats to make our beach time so comfortable. This is the BEST place to stay on the big island! THANK YOU!

Kahaluu Bay Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Dear Duane and Cheri,

I just wanted to let you know that our holiday was perfect, thanks to your beautiful and well furnished condo. Thank you for sharing your home away from home. We really enjoyed sitting on the lanai and drinking coffee in the mornings. We really appreciated all the beach items you were willing to share with us. We snorkeled and surfed almost every day. We mostly ate on the lanai, but we did enjoy a delicious meal at Jackie Rey’s and the Cucumber Blush cocktail from the bar was a nice surprise.

Thanks for making our vacation so relaxing and fun.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hi Duane,

We had a great time. The condo was perfect. We hope to visit again next year around the same time. Thank you so much for the use of the surf board. The kids had a blast with it. They also took a leap off of South Point. We visited green sand beach, black sand beach, 2 step (swam with dolphins). Visited Volcano, Hilo, Akaka Falls, Rainbow Falls, Waipio, and more.

Great week at Kahaluu Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Duane, thank you again for the pleasant place to stay!

The family and I had a terrific time and the condo was outfitted with everything as advertised. We hit several different beaches, did a snorkel trip with Seaquest and visited Volcano one day. The access to the beach was fantastic and we really enjoyed being able to relax.

Thank you to Sonja who was incredibly hospitable.

I left a small glass 'growler' in the cabinet with the glassware. I thought other guests could use it to fill it with beer at Kona brewing or other places on the island that fill them.

We're missing the spirit of Aloha and we can't wait for our next visit.

Thank you again for all the timely email and communication, it was evident that our comfort was first and foremost in your mind and we appreciate it.

Best place on the island!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this place- so close to the snorkel beach- my daughter LOVED the turtles! All 3 kids snorkeled and played in the pool here every day. Boogie boarding just down the street, and close to town for shopping! It's nice to be able to make our own meals in the beautiful kitchen with granite counter tops! The owners even left us a coupon for their favorite restaurant. :) We will for SURE be coming here again!!

35th Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I celebrated our 35th anniversary with our daughters at this lovely condo in the most perfect location. We had our morning coffee on the lanai watching and listening to the surf rolling in. We made the 5 minute walk across the street to Kahaluu Bay beach park daily and snorkeled in the beautiful clear water. We were delighted to see many beautiful fish as well as green sea turtles each day. The convenient location of the condo allowed us to walk to the beach, snorkel a few hours, and walk back to the condo to clean up and get ready for the rest of our day all by 10 am. We experienced several activities while vacationing, whale watch cruise, dolphin swim, luau, and all were just a few miles drive from the condo. There was also some very fun shopping areas just a few miles north of the condo. We had one long day when we drove to the volcano and "beach hopped" on our way there. We stayed and watched the gorgeous sunset behind Mauna Loa and saw the beautiful colors of the steaming Kilauea caldera at dusk. It was a once in a lifetime sight and very much worth the effort to get there. We were very pleased with the how well stocked the condo was with all you could need for a comfortable stay without needing to haul everything from home. There was even a Yahtzee game! :-) The owners have thought of everything! They were very easy to communicate with and answered my many questions in a friendly and very timely manner. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking to enjoy a very comfortable stay in a beautiful and convenient location. We look forward to an opportunity to come back and stay here again. Mahalo Duane & Cheri for everything.
