Overview

Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

This unit will provide you with a calm and relaxing Hawaiian vacation. It's on the 5th Floor (top floor) and is quiet. The Master Bedroom is quite large with it's own Lanai. This room has two ceiling fans and an extremely comfortable King-sized bed and leaving the Lanai door open will provide you with a very nice night's sleep. A plus is that you will wake up to a serenade of tropical birds. There is a TV in the Master Bedroom for your enjoyment. The Master Bathroom has been remodeled to replace the tub with a beautiful large glass block walk-in shower. The Second Bathroom is a full bath with a combination shower/tub. The Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need, including a rice cooker, coffee maker and a coffee grinder, just in case you want to get started right away on that Kona Coffee. The furniture in the living room is new and with two more ceiling fans and an air conditioner, you can be comfortable no matter how warm it gets. The carpet was replaced in October of 2011. The Lanais off of the Living Room and the Master Bedroom will provide you with a view of the Mountains as well as a clear view of the Kailua Kona Bay. You can also enjoy Cable TV, a DVD player, Stereo and WiFi.

Kona Pacific is a popular complex in Kailua Kona, providing views of the Ocean from the Swimming Pool and Gas Barbecues along with tables for you to enjoy your meal if you wish. There is also a community room in the Barbecue area that you can use for gatherings. It contains a refrigerator and some community books for your enjoyment. The lush tropical foliage on the grounds are very nicely kept and help to further the Hawaiian experience.

Kona International Airport is 9 miles away, about a 20 minute drive. A leisurely walk away is Downtown Kona where you can enjoy the Sunset from several good Restaurants - our favorite is The Royal Kona Resort across Alii Drive from the complex. Also in Downtown Kona is the Farmers Market, where every Monday through Sunday you can purchase pineapples, mangos, papaya, avocados, tropical flowers and so much more.

Kona Pacific is a short distance from White Sands Beach and world class snorkeling at Kahalu'u Beach Park where you will also find Sea Turtles. Head South out of Kona and you will find yourself in Kona Coffee country where you'll find free coffee samples galore. Visit Pu'uhonua o Honauna, also called The Place of Refuge, Volcanoes National Park, and if you go to Hilo don't miss Big Island Candies and their wonderful chocolate dipped shortbread. Also, stop for breakfast along the way at the Coffee Shack. Championship Golf Courses are nearby. Visit Kona and enjoy world class Beaches, Snorkeling, Parasailing, Dinner Cruises, Luaus, Kayaking, Diving and Deep Sea Fishing.

About Kathy McConnell

We are Bruce and Kathy McConnell and as you can see by our picture, we love the beach - especially Kona beaches. We live in Santa Rosa, California and are now retired. We have 2 sons who along with their wives have given us 4 beautiful granddaughters to spoil.

Kathy McConnell purchased this condo in 2003

Why Kathy McConnell chose Kona Coast

We first visited Kona in 2003 and were drawn to the world class Beaches. It was then that we started thinking about having our own place on the Island. We found this unit in Kona Pacific. We liked the complex for it's location, the privacy and solitude it provides and the views. We enjoy our unit very much because of the comfort it provides when we visit and we hope to share that with you.

What makes this condo unique

What we find unique about this unit is that no matter what the weather is or how warm it might get, we can be extremely comfortable, especially at night with the comfort of the King bed, the open lanai and the fans when needed. The first thing we listen for when we get off the plane are the tropical birds and that is also the first thing we hear in the morning when we stay in this unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much - we enjoyed your condo. The location is great. Loved the walk in shower and the King size bed is comfy.

Comfortable & Affordable

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed in Kailua-Kona many times, mostly on the waterfront. Now wanted to save money, so tried KP.

Pros: Very clean. Comfortable bed, plenty of pillows, VERY large bedroom with room for suitcases. Air conditioning, important for us. Good strong ceiling fans. 2 bathrooms- in condos we usually find minimal counter space so it was nice for us to each have a bathroom. Dishwasher. Nice lanais, decent views for location. Walk to Don's, Huggo's etc no parking hassles. Very quiet.

Could be better: Older cooking pots/utensils/cutlery. Need better fry pan. Kitchen a tight squeeze near fridge/micro. Strong pesticide smell 1/wk.

Cons: Difficult parking garage, lots of posts/cement walls, hard to pull in/out, we scraped car on ramp. Best with compact car.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We appreciate it and are glad that you liked our Condo. We are sorry you had problems with the parking garage. We have not ever had a guest report an issue with the parking, nor have we had a problem when we have used it. It is an underground, monitored parking garage and the space is an assigned space, which many guests greatly appreciate.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location: walking distance to town, yet super quiet. The best part is the lanai: all our "in-home" meals were eaten outside. The lanai is very private, has wonderful views of both the ocean and the mountains. The unit is clean, bright and very comfortable. The kitchen is a little outdated but has all the conveniences one might need and more. The king bed is very comfy and having 2 bathrooms was very practical. We would return and definitely recommend this unit.

Way Cool!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed 10 days at Bruce and Kathy's condo and found it to be very comfortable, clean and well maintained. The listing information was quite accurate and actually the unit exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the easy walking access to Wailua village and took advantage of the many fine restaurants. Favorites included Fish Hopper for Ono fish and chips, Kona Inn(just go there and see what we mean) and you can't beat Huggos on the Rocks for toes in the sand relaxation, good music and an applauded sunset over a cold beverage.

And the beaches...nothing like a Hawaiian beach and the crystal clear Pacific ocean.

Nice!

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable and happy with this unit. Everything we needed was there, clean and in working order. The furnishings are comfortable and tasteful; the bedroom is huge, and the King bed is very comfy. The lanai view of the Kona pier is pretty both morning and night. The elevators made getting to the pool and to the designated parking spot easy and quick. Kona village restaurants and shops are within walking distance. We had a great time and highly recommend this unit.

Great comfortable place to stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the property a great deal. It has everything and is actually nicer than the photos. The building/complex is very nice as well. Very good location with just a short walk to the main downtown attractions. You will not go wrong renting this condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review of our condo. We appreciate the kind words. Each year when we visit we do some project to keep the unit clean and comfortable for our guests. The proximity to Downtown Kona is one of the nice features of this unit, yet it is quiet. In just a few minutes you can be at the Farmers Market and the Royal Kona Resort is very close for a nice, reasonably priced meal at their ocean bar/restaurant.

Kona Pacific is in an ideal location. A few minutes walk to Downtown, the Farmers Market and several great restaurants. Across Alii Drive is The Royal Kona Resort where you can enjoy a Luau with very good food and a great show. Their open air bar/restaurant is also a great place to enjoy a reasonably priced good meal while enjoying a beautiful sunset. For Ironman participants and observers, this complex puts you right in the middle of the activities without having to get in a car. Our unit is located such that it is away from any road noise and is very quiet. The City of Refuge is a beautiful spot to take a picnic lunch. Drive around the back and you will find picnic tables on the beach. The Coffee Shack South of Kona has an incredible view and serves a great breakfast. They also sell some pretty good Kona coffee. All of the State Parks in the area have a Junior Ranger program where your children can learn about the culture and earn Junior Ranger badges. (City of Refuge is one of them)
