Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Keauhou Punahele is rated by the book 'Hawaii Big Island Revealed' as a "solid gold value" and it's also "a real gem", too. Punahele is located in Keauhou, a beautiful, upscale, quiet, low traffic and relaxing area of Kailua-Kona. The complex is well maintained with beautifully landscaped grounds next to the eighth fairway of the Kona Country Club. The buildings are constructed of cement therefore maintaining a quiet and comfortable atmosphere. Gentle tradewinds, ceiling fans and concrete construction keep the complex at a comfortable temperature. The large pool and Jacuzzi provide a quiet, relaxing retreat.

This luxury condo is very spacious at ~1500 sq. ft. with vaulted ceilings, and is well appointed with newer appliances in the kitchen. The master bedroom bath was remodeled with a largewalk-in shower, double sinks and a walk-in closet. The second and third bathrooms were just remodeled in Oct. 2015. The kitchen was remodeled in June 2016. It is in excellent condition as the owners had lived in it, and now live only 10 minutes away. The views from the roomy lanai are of the ocean and golf course. It is located only minutes from Keauhou Bay where boats leave for snorkeling, whale watching, sunset cruises and diving. Kayak rentals and tours are also available. The Kona Country Club, with an 18 hole champion course, is only a quarter mile away. Next door is a tennis complex with numerous rental courts and equipment.

The nearest shopping center is just a mile away with a supermarket, restaurants, drug store, shops, urgent medical care, and a movie complex. Beaches and great snorkeling are only minutes. Right outside the complex are quiet areas for walking and jogging.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our two weeks plus vacation was all the more enjoyable and memorable thanks to this wonderful accomodation we were fortunate enough to secure. The condo was bright, clean and spaceous, and the kitchen was stocked with all the dishes, utensils and cooking items we needed. We put the washer/dryer and beach gear ( beach towels, umbrella, coolers, grass mats and snorkel gear) to good use. A quiet setting, at night we enjoyed dinners on the lanai overlooking the golf course and watched the sun go down. I look forward to a return visit!

Great condo on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this condo with three couples for 10 days. It worked out perfectly providing enough space for everyone. The lanai is very spacious and the grill at this unit is very convenient allowing for grilling meals right on the lanai. Larry is a wonderful owner as he lives on the island and meets you to answer any questions regarding the condo. Couldn't have been happier with the accommodations.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Keauhou Punahele is the last complex at the end of Ali'i Dr. and this particular condo unit is in the building at the southernmost end which makes it very peaceful and quiet. Large 2 bdrm unit with loft makes for a very spacious living space. Very large lanai with BBQ overlooking the golf course makes for a great place to just hang loose. Super convenient to have your own grill rather than having to share at a common BBQ area like at most condo complexes. A big +++ for those who like to grill their meals.

Larry the owner answered all emails promptly before we booked with him and was around to meet & greet us when we arrived. Having the owner live in Kona is a huge +++ in case anything goes wrong during your stay. The dryer went kaput during our stay and Larry had a new dryer delivered the next day. Talk about service!

Thank you Larry & Tricia for a wonderful stay. Will see you again!

Very homey condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a beautiful quiet neighborhood, conveniently located close to a small shopping area with a grocery store, drug store, post office, restaurants. It is close to downtown Kona without the noise and congestion. There is plenty of room for adult children and in-laws to have their own space! The lanai is spacious with a beautiful view and plenty of seating. I really appreciated the fully stocked kitchen. A full size washer and dryer was so nice and convenient. The condo has plenty of beach towels and other beach necessities such as umbrelllas, beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear, noodles, boogie boards. We were provided with lists of local shopping, restaurants which was very helpful and the owners made us feel very welcome. The coffee pot cracked during our stay and was immediately replaced by the owner. The complex is also very well maintained with a beautiful clean pool area. Several times we were the only guests at the pool which was very enjoyable and relaxing. I would definately stay here again when we are on the big island and in fact, I planning my return before I left!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Condo is in excellent location. Beautiful view from lanai, quiet and very safe. Walking distance to Keauhou Bay and Sheraton.

Clean, cozy, and spacious!! We were 3 couples, so having 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms was wonderful. The kitchen was clean and had lots of dishes and cookware along with spices, oil, sugar, etc. Lots of extra napkins, trash bags, and other basic necessities.

We appreciated the supply of beach towels and ice chests to take with us on our outings. Having a washer and dryer to wash towels in after going to the beach was great.

Larry and Tricia provided lots of recommendations for shopping and restaurants of all sorts.

We enjoyed your condo!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Had a fun and relaxing time!! Condo is clean and well kept. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes and cookware along with basic necessities like sugar, spices, oil, etc. Beach towels and ice chests were also available for our outings. Having access to a washer and dryer gave us the opportunity to wash towels before our next beach adventure. Larry and Tricia gave great directions to condo and many recommendations for shopping and eating. We were three couples, so having 3 bedrooms and 3 bath was wonderful! We enjoyed the quiet and safety of this complex. Mahalo Larry and Tricia!

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

All joys and no complaints. Larry and Tricia were a pleasure to work with. Condo was comfy and inviting. The fans were ample for keeping the condo cool. Kitchen was stocked with all the pans and dishes we needed. Quiet complex. Many happy hours were spent swimming in the pool and sipping coffee on the lanai. Keauhou is convenient to Kona and Keakelua Bay.

Most useful--THREE BATHROOMS! Made it very easy for five people to come back from swimming/snorkeling/hiking, shower up quickly, and head out again. Bliss!

Thank you for everything! We had a fantastic time and look forward to a chance to return.
