Keauhou 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 condo facing the best snorkelling beach ever!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo. Spacious, clean, light and airy - the sea breezes blew through it to keep it cool even though it was pretty hot when we were there. Gorgeous pool and surrounding area, we used it every day. Lots of thoughtful touches to make our vacation special - water shoes, kids life jackets, beach chairs and umbrella. There was snorkelling kit too (we didn't need to borrow it as we had our own), body boards and paddle board - meant to use them but never quite got round to it! Best of all though was the beach opposite - not the prettiest to look at but nice facilities (showers, snorkelling rental if you need it) and AMAZING snorkelling. The water is not that deep so you're up close to the fish, like being in an aquarium. And sea turtles too.

Duane was super responsive and easy to deal with. The onsite manager Sonya was very helpful, organised, great recommendations for shopping and restaurants. We chose the place because it was away from the big resorts - close enough to civilisation when we wanted it but without the crowds. We visited several beaches in our 4 days there, the kayaking across kealakekua bay (with the dolphins!) was a highlight. Great trip with Kona Boys.

Highly recommend the condo.

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!!
