Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1K, 1Q baths en suite + Convertible bed, 3rd full guest bath

With a prestigious location in the Kona Pacific complex, one of Kona's premier properties, this spacious condo offers the best there is in luxurious Hawaiian accommodations. Hale Honu Kai's location is simply ideal. Just a half block off bustling Alii Drive and all of the waterfront shops, restaurants, and activities - yet quiet, private, and relaxing. Hale Honu Kai is just two blocks from a favorite local surfing spot, Honl's Beach, and easy walking distance to the quaint and picturesque Historic Kailua-Kona Village, the very heart of the Big Island's famous Kona Coast.

With complete elevator accessibility, professionally manicured grounds and secure designated underground parking, this is the place to stay! This lovely vacation condo is 1300 spacious square feet of elegance with a huge wrap-around lanai that guarantees outside comfort. The condo has two private suites (1 king bed, 1 queen bed) each with their own full baths. Each suite has lanai access to enjoy the tropical scenery. A fully equipped kitchen and large living room with a third full bath along with full size laundry facilities create the perfect vacation retreat that quickly feels like home.

The Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii offers stunning natural beauty and some of the best and most reliable good weather to be found in the Hawaiian Islands. The Big Island is a treasure trove of Hawaiian history that spans the first ancient Polynesian discovery of the islands to the present. The Kona Coast is a tropical playground of small isolated sandy beaches and home to one of the world's most productive bill fishing grounds. On the east side of the Big Island, the erupting Kilauea volcano expands the island's size, while at the top of Mauna Kea, some of the world's most powerful telescopes expand man's knowledge of the universe. Few other destinations offer the amazing diversity of activities and sights, all at reasonable, affordable prices. Whether it's an active family vacation, or a quiet escape to paradise, our 'Hale Honu Kai' and the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii is the perfect place to relax.

About Jerry

Jerry Geissler is proud to offer Hale Honu Kai for your use. Jerry is a retired firefighter from California who also happens to be pretty handy at construction work, having built several homes on the mainland. When the condo was purchased in 2007 it was unchanged from when it was originally built in 1981. The remodel work started with a complete tear-out to the walls of everything inside the condo. It was stripped to the bare concrete walls before the rebuilding process started. Even the old 'popcorn' ceilings were stripped, and all ceilings and walls re-textured and painted. Custom cherry cabinets for the kitchen and all three baths were ordered and shipped from the mainland. All bath tub surrounds were stripped and refitted with new tile. A large, custom shower was constructed for the master bath. New solid teak furniture replaced everything along with new towels, linens, bedspreads and curtains. The kitchen was outfitted with new cookware, dishes, silverware and small appliances. The intent was that the condo have a very Hawaiian feel, with unique eloquence To that end the usual pure white walls and bamboo furniture that is seen in many condos was avoided. All of our colors, textures, and furniture was hand picked, one piece at a time. I hope you will feel instantly comfortable here, just as my family does when we come.

Jerry purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jerry chose Kailua-Kona

The Kona Pacific complex is an undiscovered gem on the Kona Coast. Many of the condos in the area are "stick-built" wooden construction that doesn't always age well. The Kona Pacific is a refreshing change from that. It is constructed completely of concrete, and meticulously maintained. It actually looked when it was new much the way it does now. The quality of construction, perfect maintenance, and the manicured grounds and pool show wonderfully . Pride of ownership and a quality owner's association management team are in clear evidence.

The second thing that attracted us to the Kona Pacific was the perfect location. It is far enough from the breaking waves to be peacefully quiet, yet close enough to get a good ocean view from the lanai. It is a short walk to a great little sandy beach with showers, bathrooms, grass and shade. A short walk north leads you to the Historic Kailua Village. Being able to walk to amenities and entertainment is priceless.

What makes this condo unique

One of the favorite and most enjoyable things to do here is walking to the village. In the morning you can enjoy genuine KONA coffee and breakfast while overlooking Kailua Bay at any one of several very popular restaurants. Huggo's on the Rocks, Bongo Ben's and the Lava Java are local favorites, and some many that you quickly come to on your walk.

In the evening, a short walk across the street will take you to the Royal Kona Resort and is simply a stunning place to watch the sun set. One of our fondest memories is sitting at the Royal Kona, sipping on a Mai Tai and watching the cruise ships sail off into the sunset....literally.

Sometimes when we can't decide what to do for dinner, we just walk into the village to see what looks good. There is always something going on at one of the eateries.....somebody will have good Happy Hour mai tais or other specials that are always a good place to start. Then, you can walk further down Alii to find a good place to eat. The historic Kona Inn has fabulous ocean view dinning. They have a formal dining room, and a seating area near the bar that offers more affordable, quicker fare. After dinner, it's time for ice cream and a stroll. There are countless little ice cream and shaved ice shops in the village. We still haven't found them all, and they all have their own unique flavors. It's the perfect way to end your evening before heading back home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your condo. It was beautiful and comfortable. It really is a perfect location...close to the beach, close to eating and shopping so everyone could do their own thing. Thank you so much.

Jerry's Place at B208 Kona Pacific Was Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I enjoyed immensely the hospitality Jerry offered us while on the Big Island at Kona. We were so very lucky to have Jerry over from the mainland visiting and checking on his property while there. His condo has plenty of space for a family up to 6. We planned for 5, but only 3 of us made it in my group on the trip. This unit made it very nice.

Our daughter enjoyed the privacy afforded in the totally separate 2nd Bedroom (her section by itself was equal to the total amount of space you may get at most hotel chains). She had access to the huge Lanai (this unit has a long wrap around porch with plenty of chairs, table space and enjoyment space). She had a spacey open bedroom area, nice furnishings, a large bi-fold doors closet area, and a large spacey 2nd bathroom. I mean it, just like a standard nice hotel room and bath just in her sleeping area. My wife and I enjoyed the Master Bedroom and it's space. The Master Bath had a large walk-in tiled shower, was spacey with nice tile and décor. Near was a nice storage closet and a hall to the nice open bedroom area and access to his large Lanai just mentioned above. A 3rd hall way to the nice washer / dryer area and storage, connected to the nice foyer. Double entry doors, 1 or 2 can be used as needed, one in use all the time, but with that side x side option it would be good for wheel chair access I think. There is a 3rd Full Bath near the foyer, just behind the nice roomy Kitchen area that had large tiled top counter peninsular. Also next to the 3rd Bath, another nice storage double-door closet where all kinds of nice things for use are stored (extras, water toys, etc). In front of the Kitchen at a 3rd set of Lanai access doors was the very nice open and roomy living space area. Jerry has tile throughout, nice plumbing, sinks, counters, appliances and general furnishings. He really cares about his place and wants it kept nice. He was there for every question, big or small and went above and beyond sort of performing as a true vacation host, not just a nice landlord of his nice property. He hand wrote several separate maps and written directions to nice beaches and let us borrow a book telling about the island. The view from his Lanai, is just as you see it with the posted picture of the pool. I still have it burned in my mind, perfect copy. Easy access to car parking straight below. Elevator within eyesight of his condo's front door. Great pool, Quiet neighbors, helpful people here
