About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Aloha Friends,

Our family over the years have taken away precious memories of the Big Island lifestyle, the picturesque sunsets and sharing stories while sipping Mai Tai's and grilling fresh locally caught Mahi Mahi on the barbecue (I can taste it now). The combination of the ocean breeze, the Kona coffee brewing in the pot, and our little friends, the song birds, create a serene sound scape. What better way to start your day!

There is something to be said about the people of Kona. We always feel so welcome and have made friendships over the years that we cherish. Life moves just a little slower on the island giving you time to literally to stop and smell the flowers.

Now my friends it is time for our family to share this experience with you. We have taken the time to ensure that your stay will be pleasant, comfortable and worry free. We have recently completed our high-end remodel designing with a tropical elegance to create those special touches throughout the entire home from beautiful art to elegant and contemporary furnishings.

This is the Best of the Best of the Keauhou Punahele Resort. Our two bedroom Condo home has 1200 sq ft on the second floor with a 30’ Private Lanai over looking the Pacific Blue Ocean and the Kona Country Club's lush green beach-side golf course. Our grounds are meticulously maintained. The home is a ‘split design’ with the each bedroom on opposite sides and the living room in the middle. Great for privacy!

The Master bedroom has a king size bed, large tropical ceiling fan, with a large walk-in closet, fitted with numerous hangers, ironing-board and iron, clothes hamper and extra stand-up electric fan. The Master bath is spacious featuring natural stone floors , bamboo cabinets, vessel sink, large mirror, custom natural stone shower with tub and a blow dryer for his or her.

The Guest bedroom has 2 twin beds which can be converted into a king size easily. The closet is fitted with multiple hangers, iron and an extra stand up electric fan also. The Guest bathroom has a gorgeous custom natural quartzite stone shower with a soothing rain head, blow dryer for his or her and an in-unit washer/dryer with detergent included.

The Lanai is grand stretching 30 feet long and is furnished with handsome outdoor yummy dark brown wicker furniture featuring a new barbecue for grilling your favorite local catch and sizzling steaks. Dining on the Lanai is spectacular as the sun sets afar.

When eating in, the kitchen features aloha white granite counter tops and bamboo cabinets with easy pull-drawers and European hinges for soft closings. All the best amenities and is fully stocked with refrigerator, ice maker, oven/convection/microwave, cook top, dishwasher, and is stocked with a full set of cookware, cooking utensils, flatware, steamer, chop-sticks, glasses, wine glasses, wine opener, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, coffee filters, complete spice rack in pullout drawer, plastic glasses for pool and plastic containers for leftovers.

The view from the Lanai is breath taking of the Pacific Ocean, Kona Country Club Golf Course with the rolling lawn area scattered about with statuesque palm trees. You will see a pathway that leads to a private gated swimming pool, hot tub and the “Long House”, a great place to socialize in the evening.

Keauhou Punahele is a just a few minutes walk to the Keauhou Shopping Center which has restaurants every occasion: Don Drysdale’s Two Sport Bar and Restaurant, Kenichi Pacific Sushi, L& L Hawaiian Barbecue, Los Habaneros - Mexican, Rocky’s Pizza and Peaberry & Galette and Moo Bettah Frozen Fun- Frozen Yogurt.

And enjoy great family entertainment at the Keauhou Cinemas, grocery shop at KTA’s Grocery store and Pharmacy and Longs Drugs, stamps and mail your letters and packages at U.S. Post office, banking at Bank of Hawaii, and a separate ATM outside KTA, for medical use Urgent Care / Medical Clinic and to fill up your gas tank the gas station is up on the corner. There is a Farmer’s Market every Saturday. For Transportation, check-out the Trolley which as of late costs a dollar and has additional stops.

Kealakekua Bay Marine Sanctuary at Captain Cook is renowned for some of the best snorkeling and diving and kayaking with a large variety of colorful sea life and sea turtles. Just 14 miles s south on Kuakini- Hawaii Belt Road - HI 11. And for experienced scuba divers, check out night diving with the spectacular Manta Rays through Hula Kai/Fairwind and Mata Ray excursions.. Or be a spectator at the Manta Ray Show at the Sheraton Bay Resort & Spa which is right around the corner.

A side note. There are many many other excursions like driving down to Volcano National Park, Helicopter rides around the craters and lava flow and Para-sailing in the Kailua-Kona pier.

My friends, the Big Island offers so much more in Culture and Activities. Please make sure you to go on the web for further activities and discounts.

Good location and okay view

  • 3 of 5

I would love to give a better rating but I think the condo needs a really good cleaning. Under the kitchen sink was a terrible smell and the baseboards haven’t been touched in a long time. The kitchen could use the drawers cleaned out and knives sharpened. Toaster oven took a long time, so we bought a regular toaster for the next guest if they need it. I know this condo is constantly rented, but maybe should take the time to make it really nice for future guests. The location is prime. Close to Kona but not too close. The road is very busy and can be loud, but we got used to it. We arrived after dark and had some trouble finding our parking spot. Not numbered very well and not in order. Condo numbers had the same problem. Maybe some fresh paint or lighting on the condo signs. Very well cared for grounds otherwise. Beautiful pool and everyone we met were great. Maybe not the best for the money but would be if spruced up!

Convenient well appointed condo in great complex

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in the condo for the recent Ironman World Championships. Given the choice again, now we know how hot it gets in Hawaii and coming from a cooler country, we would go with somewhere with air con but saying that there are ceiling and standing fans that can be used to cool things down.

The condo itself is in the lovely Keauhou Punahele complex. The grounds are well maintained as is the pool and the surrounding area. We had daily dips!! The complex is about 20 minutes by car from Kona which is just what we were looking for - close enough to get in for race but far enough to benefit from some peace and relaxation.

The condo is well appointed with all the essentials to make for a comfortable stay. There is even plenty of beach stuff for use too.

There is an additional cleaning charge which we felt a bit steep for the quality of clean.

Excellent Holiday Headquarters

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time on the Big Island (a 3 week stay) so we had some idea of where (and where not) to stay. This condo proved to be an absolutely excellent choice. The location is perfect; easy access to everywhere else we wanted to go. It's out of the busy hustle of Kona but so close and convenient that you don't notice being outside town. All necessary amenities are close. The condo itself is nicely equipped and decorated. Everything was in good repair; the master bedroom mattress may need replacing soon but the rest of the equipment was great. We had one minor problem with a breaker going that wouldn't reset but the local manager had a person up to repair it in no time (these things happen) with only a single text from us. She also checked to ensure the time was convenient. The complex itself is well designed and maintained. There is extra equipment available for use (beach chairs, snorkelling etc) and the big lanai was a real plus. This place is pleasant, affordable, and the communication from both the owner and manager was nothing short of excellent. The dealings with this owner were highly professional - not a single problem. Lots of hints for things to do and places to see and eat. If we return to this island we would most definitely rent this condo again.

Excellent Condo at Keauhou Bay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this condo at Keauhou Punahele. Both the condo and the complex are very well maintained. The condo is well stocked in the kitchen and has plenty of linens, including nice beach towels. The complex was very quiet in the evenings. Although we did not use the pool, it looked very nice. We enjoyed dinner at Sam Choys, which is very close, and would also recommend the Big Island Grill in town, a favorite with locals. For delicious burgers, try Island Ono Loa Grill (behind Lava Java on Allii Drive). I especially liked that this condo is on the second level so that you have a nice ocean view past the golf course; however, it is on the same level as the parking lot, so there are not any stairs, and the parking space for the condo is right in front of the condo. We would definitely recommend this condo and hope to return for another visit in the future.

Ironman Rental

  • 4 of 5

This condo served our purposes well for the Ironman race week. It's a little away from downtown, which is typically crazy during that time of year, so we prefer to be at that end of Alii Dr. The condo was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Having a washer and dryer was handy, especially because we were there for over a week.

Wish we had time to golf as there is a course right by the condo, but we did have time to do some cliff diving just down the street at the End of the World! The only down side to this condo is it can get hot and AC would have been appreciated, but we understand most places on the water don't have AC.

Our stay at this beautiful condo was absolutely wonderful. The condo is very clean, update and very well stocked with everything you could possible need. The lanai was our favorite spot. We had a great time on the Big Island and saw whales, turtles and crabs. Hapuna beach is wonderful. We ate at several great spots including Sam Choys, Bongo Ben, Bubba Grump, Hawaiian Barbeque and many others. The food and especially the fresh fish was wonderful. Thanks so much for a wonderful wonderful stay at your beautiful condo. We would highly recommend this condo and the community it is in. Mahalo!
