Overview

Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Kona Plaza, located right in the heart of Kailua-Kona, is a quiet and private condominium building within walking distance of everything you want to do in Kona. Just across the street, you can go to the beach, the pier, shopping, and to the best restaurants in town. This condo unit (303) is located on the third floor overlooking beautiful Kailua Bay with a direct ocean view.

The condo has one bedroom with a new King sized bed and a very comfortable queen size foldout couch in the living room (sleeps 2-4 people). Blow up mattresses are also available if the kids want to sleep on the lanai (Our boys love sleeping outdoors on the lanai). The condo has recently been partially renovated and redecorated in a tropical and comfortable island style. It includes a fully equipped kitchen for cooking (no dishwasher) as well as a washer/dryer inside the unit.

Guests of Kona Plaza unit 303 can enjoy the onsite pool, sun decks, BBQ area, and secure onsite garage parking. Nearby, you will find additional shops, art galleries, beach apparel stores, hair salons, spas, jewelry stores, and great restaurants.

This location is perfect for Ironman. You can watch the swimming portion of the competition from the lanai or one of the sundecks and the marathon (on Ali'i Dr) from the lanai as well. Spinner Dolphins jump for your entertainment almost daily! The huge sliding glass doors out to the lanai overlook Ali'i Drive and the ocean. However, when you go to sleep you don't want to hear the action on Ali'i Drive! Fortunately, the glass sliding doors are made of soundproof glass and provide a very quiet experience for everyone in the unit. Central air conditioning is provided.

About Mary and Tracy

After raising 5 children we decided it was time to enjoy some 'Island time'. The Kona Plaza unit is a dream come true.

Mary and Tracy purchased this condo in 2011

Why Mary and Tracy chose Kona Coast

We LOVE Hawaii and especially Kona!

What makes this condo unique

This unit is as close to central Kailua-Kona as you can get. Go down the stairs or use the elevator and be in the middle of everything Kona has to offer. Including one of the closest rentals to the start line of Ironman. Underground secure parking is a rare bonus in Kona. Watch marine life like Spinner Dolphins and Humpbacks, harbor boats, cruise ships, submarines and harbor activities from the living room and lanai!

Excellent location, perfect size and central to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We were very apprehensive staying somewhere for 1 month and praying we wouldn't be sorry. Boy did we hit the jackpot with this place!

You can't get more central to Kona than this condo and the direct view of the ocean is extremely relaxing and calming for weary travelers.

The condo has a nice size bedroom with plenty of closet space, hangers, shelves in the closet, two nightstands and a 5 drawer chest of drawers. There is plenty of room in the bedroom, which can be shut off from the rest of the condo.

The bathroom is average size but has minimal shelves and storage, still, it is fine and the shower is great. Nice hot water after a long day at the beach and/or hiking. The drawer under the sink has lots of left over stuff from previous travelers (bandaids, sunscreen, etc). There are plenty of extra hand towels, bath towels and beach towels. There are *nice* beach chairs, 4 of them and a very nice beach umbrella with lots of extra beach "stuff" that is in good shape (snorkle gear, floaties, reef shoes, etc.)

The stackable washer and dryer were very nice to have for the month. We regularly used them!

The kitchen, albeit small, was extremely efficient and we used the heck out of it for the month. Everything you need is in the kitchen to make all of your meals except the food! Saran wrap, foil, basic spices, etc.

The living room and dining area were spacious and comfortable. We used my FireTV to stream TV shows and movies over the wireless internet with no problems. Plus, in the pool area the TWC wifi signal was super strong!

The lanai was used every day, usually for breakfast and lunch or dinner. We ate almost every meal outside and it was so nice.

I can't tell you how much we enjoyed this condo. Staying somewhere for an entire month is scary because if you don't like something about it, well you're stuck. We were very happy here and would highly recommend it!!!

Great condo in the heart of Kona

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful condo to kick off our trip to HI in! We arrived late at night but had no issues getting into the condo and garage with the instructions provided. The condo was spacious, very clean and well stocked. Mary recently purchased a pack n play which was great for our toddler to use and sleep in. It fits well in the bedroom even with the (very comfortable) king sized bed. The condo itself was great, and in a fantastic location. We walked all over Kona and only used our rental car sparingly. I loved that the lanai was baby-friendly as our toddler could play out there danger-free and she loved being out there! We took advantage of the snorkeling gear and beach items. The only negative to the condo would be that when you're on the lanai you can see the ocean but you cannot hear it because of the white noise from the exhaust of the stores down below. It's not intrusive, but it's something to note if you want to be able to hear the ocean. However, we loved the view and being able to see cruise ships, paddleboarders, swimmers, etc. enjoying the ocean.

You make the roll sushi is a must eat if you like sushi, CHEAP (4 enormous rolls for $26!) and absolutely delicious. There was also yummy shaved ice and great restaurants closeby all in close walking distance. We went to the luau at the Royal Kona Resort which was fantastic.

I would absolutely recommend staying here, the owners were fantastic and very communicative and it's great to have a place right in the middle of the action that is so well appointed!

Charming Kailua Kona village

  • 4 of 5

The property was within walking distance to a multitude of charming shops and eateries in the Kona village of Kailua.

We found the unit as described and actually larger than expected. My son was so excited to have closet fully stocked with anything you would need to spend a day at the beach.

The property was clean and well maintained. The parking garage was locked and provided additional security for guests. Our security deposit was returned promptly.

We did rent a car and one day traveled to Hilo, went north to see some waterfalls and visited Volcano National Park on the way back.

The owners have great inside information on the best things to do and since our time was short we took advantage of their suggestions.

Kealakekua Bay has the Captain Cook Monument and is a great place to snorkel or kayak. We rented a kayak from local folks and were able to be in a dolphin pod for a few hours before they headed out. Go early as the dolphins are in for evening rest and leave early afternoon. We did not book a tour company but there were a few in this special area. From the morning with dolphins, we headed for lunch at a great local place with farm to table style entries. I can't recall the name but it was on the main road (hwy11) and St. Benedict's Painted church was close by. After lunch we continued south to Hookena Beach State park with it's almost black sand. The remainder of that day was spent snorkeling and swimming at the beach and we were fascinated by the group of sea turtles close to shore..

Wish we had more time in the beautiful place....ENJOY!

Fabulous vacation in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 8 nights in this excellently appointed condo. Very comfortable accommodations. Condo complex was very clean and neighbors very friendly. Secure underground parking was a big plus. Best of all was the location- within walking distance of all the shopping, dining, adventure you could want! I would definitely stay here again! Thank you to the owner/manager for such perfect instructions and hospitality. This was my first time renting through vrbo and all my expectations were met!

Nice place in the heart of Kona

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Everything, from booking to checking in, was quick and easy.

The condo was big enough for 3 people and had everything you need.
