Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

We hope we have provided informative and useful information for your stay on the Big Island. We look forward to your visit and we will do everything in our power to ensure you have a wonderful stay. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us at by phone.

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.

Condo

  • 5 of 5

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!

Winter in Paradise! Stayed five weeks here.

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay in this unit, second stay at Keauhou Punahele. We really enjoyed the ocean views. Saw whales , excursion boats & kayaks from the lanai.Although we don't golf, the green space & view of the ocean was lovely. We prefer this area, away from the touristy action in Kailua. Everything was as shown in the photos. Nice decor & comfortable. We chose to dine most of the time here, using the outdoor grill. No worries of driving from a restaurant after a glass of wine or two. Enjoyed almost daily walks to beautiful Keauhou Bay. Always some kind of activity to observe. Would recommend this unit to friends or relatives. Our thanks to the Staley's for sharing their condo with us.

You'll want to return. We did!

  • 5 of 5

If you like a relaxing atmosphere, with beautiful golf course, ocean and sunset views, you will want to book this condo.

Furnished exactly as described by JM, this is the perfect place for a Hawaiian vacation for you, your family and friends. While in a quiet setting, the condo is close to Keauhou Bay with numerous ocean activities. This year we enjoyed canoe and paddle board experiences.

Great food is easy to find. We especially enjoy Sam Choy's with his special take on local food.

Our family has enjoyed two wonderful vacations here and will cherish many great memories for years to come.

Wonderful condo in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

As I reviewed the description of this condo when deciding to book our stay, I wondered if it was all true and the pictures would be accurate. I can now report that it is and they are!!! We truly enjoyed our two weeks at Keauhou Bay. The condo is lovely, very well furnished and maintained, with a well stocked kitchen. The owners were very accommodating in working with us to fit our stay to a time we could use our frequent flyer miles for our flights. All questions were promptly and courteously answered by the owners before and during our stay and by their local manager, Heidi. My sister and a friend stayed with us for one week and they also loved it. Their favorite part was a helicopter ride over the island - a wonderful experience where you can see things not accessible by car. A relatively new restaurant at the Keauhou shopping center is Sam Choys and we had a very nice dinner with a wonderful view there. The golf course currently is closed for renovations and is scheduled to reopen in spring 2014, but we are not golfers anyway. We highly recommend this condo, especially for anyone who has trouble with stairs because it is on the parking lot level. We definitely will try to stay at this condo again on our next trip to Kona.
