Overview

Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Spinner dolphins, whales, surfers, boogie boarders and that is just what you will see from your lanai! Inside you can relax in our newly renovated, air-conditioned condo. You may not want to stay inside much though because there is so much to do in the area including snorkeling at the beach just next door. It will be a long remembered vacation which you will want to repeat.

This comfortable condo has a newly remodeled, completely equipped kitchen. We are continually updating furniture. (This year we put in a gorgeous new shower.) This end unit has extra windows giving plenty of light. It is the most convenient location in the complex: just steps from the pool, BBQs, and covered parking. Internet and domestic long distance calling are provided at no cost in the unit as well as snorkels, fins, beach chairs, umbrella, etc. for fun at the beach.

Shopping, restaurants and a spectacular farmers' market are only a few minutes walk. We have a lovely beach next to the complex and the famous Disappearing Sands beach only two miles down the road. Go a little further and find more fish than you can imagine while you snorkel at Kahaluu.

About The Owner

Here we are on the lanai looking at the surfers with our beautiful grand-daughter Evelyn. We live in Livermore, California, for ten months of the year and enjoy the Big Island for the other two. We purchased our unit in 2003 and have enjoyed it even more than we expected. Since we have retired, we like to have projects. Chuck and his brother put in the cabinets in the kitchen. I got to do the tiling and painting.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

Being an end unit, we have the extra windows giving lots of light. The lanai is shaded in the afternoon so that you have a wonderful ocean view, and the temperature is perfect. We are close to town so we leave our car in the lot and walk to restaurants, farmers' market, the pier, the ice cream shop, et cetera.

What makes this condo unique

One of our favorite activities is our mini-ironman...we run to the pier in the morning(part of the marathon section of the Ironman), and then swim out to the third or fourth buoy (a very small part of the swimming section of the Ironman). Then we walk home stopping at Bruce's (Java on the Rock) for a latte nui loa.

We also enjoy the Aloha Stroll through town on the third Sunday of the month.

well-appointed, close to town

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as expected from the listing, and more. The kitchen had everything we needed, and it was great to have a laundry in the unit. Several restaurants, bars, and shops within easy walking distance.

cozy home, near everything, but not loud or crowded

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need except food is provided, plus a welcome basket that surprised us. We thought because we were located near the busy road it might be noisy, but were pleasantly surprised that it was very quiet at night. Beautiful sunset the night before we left. We loved listening to the waves while sleeping on the very comfortable bed.

Steps from ocean and short walk to town

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Hawaii and Kona. This rental was exactly as promised and would gladly return on a future visit.

Owner is amazing and very accommodating to all of our needs. It was clean and comfortable. Bed is a king sized memory foam and very comfortable. Pictures are exactly what you will find in the unit, including the boogie boards, beach chairs, and other beach equipment.

You are steps from the pool and ocean. You are probably a 5-10 minute walk to the south side of Kona. Close to shopping and restaurants. Plenty of off street parking in the complex. Check-in and Check-out was a breeze.

Washer and dryer in unit was perfect. Able to dry beach towels and wash all of our clothes before heading home.

New shower stall with nice tiles in bathroom. View from Lanai was exactly what you see in the pictures...not a full on view, but well worth it. Quite location without a lot of noise from neighbors. Wi-Fi included. They even leave some gifts on your arrival (Kona coffee, etc.).

For the price point, this place was perfect. Everything worked great in the unit.

The pool/spa was secure and close to our unit. There are 4 large gas grills in the pool-patio area which many guests and residents took advantage of for their evening meals. The area was cleaned every morning and there is a great view of the ocean from the pool area. Very picturesque and very relaxing.

The only faults (and minor at that) of this unit would be that the fridge and stove had some rust on the outside of them; so not all that pleasing to the eye. At some point I would guess the owners will replace given how nice and attentive they are. But again, I am not there for a view of the appliances and they both work fine, so it was not an issue. Given the price point of the unit and its location, you can easily overlook these two minor things.

Close to Town, Close to the Ocean - Just what we were hoping for.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just took our first visit to the Big Island and were looking for a nice comfortable place close to the ocean and within walking distance to to village of Kailua-Kona. This rental was perfect on all counts.

It was clean and comfortable, well supplied with kitchen utensils, appliances (loved the blender - the home-made Pineapple Margaritas were fantastic) and supplies. Having a washer and dryer and Wi-Fi in the unit is also very convenient. The owners have replaced the bathtub/shower combination with a nice large walk-in shower which was real nice touch - nicely done with beautiful tile. The view of the ocean from the Lanai was just as it was pictured on the website and was perfect during our morning coffee/breakfasts. The sound of the ocean in the background at night was pretty awesome as well.

The pool/spa was secure and close to our unit. There are 4 large gas grills in the pool-patio area which many guests and residents took advantage of for their evening meals. The area was cleaned every morning and there is a great view of the ocean from the pool area. Very picturesque and very relaxing.

The procedure for registering with the front desk was quick and easy. It was great to have parking off of the main street which was close to the front door of our unit, well illuminated, and safe.

The owners we contacted for this rental were great. They responded to all our inquiries in a timely fashion before our departure and even answered a couple of questions we had during our stay by email.

We had a WONDERFUL time and would definitely return to this unit again should we decide to return to Kailua-Kona at some future date.

We had a wonderful stay in Kona!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely pick this owner and condo on our next trip to Kona! Everything was as advertised with view, amenities, and location. 5 minute walk to downtown Kona to shopping, restaurants, and Farmers Markets. Central pool, jacuzzi, and BBQ were immaculate and just steps away from our room to enjoy. Great property in front of condo to sit and enjoy Kona sunsets or walk. Centrally located to drive to beaches and sightseeing.

Condo was clean, stocked with everything we needed, and quiet. Carol was wonderful to work with and the best of any of our many VRBO experiences.

Excellent Location, Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the location of this condo! Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, beaches AND easy in and out with the car. The condo had everything we needed for our stay. We found the BBQ area to be clean and easy to access.

We have used VRBO for all 8 of trips to Hawaii, Carol was one of the best owners we have ever dealt wit, we loved the welcome call. We hope that this condo is available the next time we travel to the Big Island.
