Overview

Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 3-8)

Welcome to our beautiful Hawaiian Home! At just under 1,500 square feet our condo is situated in the beautiful, immaculate garden setting of Keauhou Punahele. This luxurious 3rd floor end unit enjoys beautiful ocean and mauka (mountain) breezes and has fabulous panoramic ocean and golf course views from the kitchen, dining and living rooms, lanai and also from the master bedroom.

This 3 bedroom (including the loft area), 3 bath unit overlooks the pool area of the complex as well as the seventh and eighth fairways of the Kona Country Club Ocean Golf Course. Enjoy waking up to beautiful sunrises as the sun lights the golf course, the manicured grounds and surrounding area. Enjoy spectacular sunsets while you barbecue on your private lanai (one of the few condo complexes that allow barbecuing on your lanai!), or just relax and soak in the hot tub (again one of the few condos that features a spa).

This condominium was completely renovated in 2011. It has new tile on the entire lower level floor, new carpet in the loft, a completely new custom kitchen with eating bar, new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops throughout, all new master and main level bathrooms, new furniture in the living room, master bedroom and lanai, a new walk-in tiled master shower, new linens, etc. The pictures don’t lie – this place will take your breath away. All bedrooms, living areas and the lanai have new ceiling fans. This open 3rd floor plan with its high cathedral ceilings provides an airy ambience. Truly relax in our condo with the spaciousness and beauty of your own home.

The master bedroom features a beautiful king-size four poster teak bed. The second bedroom also has a king-size bed. Both main level bedrooms have commanding views of the mauka (mountains). The open loft has one queen size bed and two fold down futon beds, big enough for 2 children or one adult each. Two families can vacation together with up to 6 kids up in the loft with their own bathroom and shower!

The condominium is away from the noise of the crowds but still only a 10 minute drive to Kona Town center. It is within easy walking distance to Keauhou Bay where most island tours, sailing, and kayaking begin. Also within walking distance of the Kona Golf and Country Club clubhouse. The Keauhou Shopping Center nearby has a supermarket, drug store, several restaurants, a post office, seven-screen movie theatre, and much more. Several walking/jogging/cycling pathways lead from the condo to start a fresh and fit day. 3 Night mininum stay/10 during Ironman & Christmas. This is a non-smoking unit.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation and really enjoyed staying in the condo. The owners were flexible and accommodating. We spent a lot of time on the lanai, partly because it was hot and partly because we enjoyed the view and watching the birds (and those mongoose too!). Perfect location, easy drive anywhere and not too bad to see the volcano when you plan to spend a day there anyway. The fans helped a lot!

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely condo. Our family, ranging in ages between 90 to 17, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was open, well appointed, and very clean. With all the windows and fans, we did not miss AC and the fact that the condo is on the second floor meant we could leave windows open all day and night and feel completely safe. This condo is perfect for a large group and encourages socializing. We played games at the dinner table. The lanai was excellent for breakfast. The kitchen is well appointed and although we chose not to BBQ, the grill was available. The views are lovely and the birds were delightful but never an annoyance even in the morning. The three bathrooms made morning preparation stress free. The assigned parking spot was right by the stairs leading up to the condo. The one flight of stairs was no problem for our 90 year old. She took it easy going up and once in the condo bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, living room and lanai were all on the same floor. The spacious loft with its own bathroom was reached through a round staircase perfect for the teenagers need of privacy. The condo is located minutes away from beaches for swimming, snorkeling and sun bathing. Its location is great to enjoy all of the west side of the island especially Kona coffee area. The grocery store is conveniently nearby as are many businesses including a movie theater. The condo did have snorkel gear, water shoes, chairs, umbrellas and lots of towels. Since we were a large group we rented snorkel gear as well. A three minute drive over to the Sheraton Kona Resort took us to Rays on the Bay for dinner. The highlight was seeing manta rays come into the cove at night sometime after 9pm. The manta rays are easily seen from the bar area. We had dinner but clearly many people come just to see the manta rays, free of charge. It was a pleasure to work with Wayne, the owner. He responded to all questions and followed up to make sure we had no needs. The damage deposit was refunded promptly returned through a check in the mail. Without a doubt, we enjoyed our stay and would happily work with Wayne again. Aloha!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this condo. We'd already stayed in the area numerous times previously, so we were familiar with the location, and really like the idea of being close to town but far enough out for a little serenity. We also like to head south a lot (for coffee, snorkeling, and the small town ambiance of Kealakekua, Captain Cook, etc.), so being on the south end of town is certainly the best for us (and the newish bypass road is fabulous).

It's really the only area that's on the edge of town (but only about 10 minutes from downtown), close to the ocean, and still only 2 minutes away from a full-sized grocery store, expansive drug store, and local eats like L&L and Sam Choys, and the like.

This condo met all of our needs perfectly. In talking with a few people around the pool, we believe that this is the best unit in the complex. It is spacious, well appointed, comfortable, and more than fully equipped. It's a third floor unit with a loft and vaulted ceilings, with great views, but it's only one short flight of stairs above the parking lot - with a dedicated parking space directly in front of the unit.

Communication with Wayne was fantastic. We really enjoyed renting from him, and staying in this condo.

Great views, spacious and well located condo

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Hawaii ( Kona ) the week before Easter and stayed for Easter week as well. A very pleasant space to walk into and mellow out in. The ceilings are all high beamed and contain large remote controlled fans. There were also fans outside on the large lanai where we enjoyed most of our meals. These fans and opening the windows, closing the blinds, maintained a comfortable temperature. The view from there over the landscaped grounds leading the eye to the ocean was spectacular. The sunset beckoned each night - spectacular! The condo had everything / appliance, tool and wrap / container wise for meal prep and also takeaway beach days. The condo was easy to find given Wayne and Gail's attention to providing detailed instructions for arrival, activities on island and departure, and is well situated for visiting nearby beaches, shopping areas, the coffee farms and the south end. It is very close to The Sheraton Kona where we found not only two interpretive programs and a Wednesday Farmers' Market, but also the local canoeing club just around the corner. They welcome visitors for a small donation on 12 person outriggers three times a week. Excellent instruction! We can certainly recommend this condo and look forward to visiting again.

Pristine Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous town home, luxury furnishings, fully stocked kitchen, lush beds, huge covered lani with barbecue and ocean view, laundry room. Stayed 8 marvelous days. The owner's did not overlook one detail of making this a heavenly paradise for rest and relaxation or adventure (boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, coolers, beach chairs) provided. My personal favorite was waking each morning hearing the birds sing the song of Hawaii.....truly amazing and can't wait to come back to my "home away from home"....thank-you Wayne and Gail....til next vacation Alohoa

Beautiful views, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo was spotless and had all the amenities for a comfortable stay. I traveled with my husband, my mother and aunt. The condo had plenty of room for the four of us. The neighbors were quiet and friendly. The condo quickly cools down if you open the windows in the evening and turn on the fans. The view is beautiful, the master bedroom is spacious, and the beds were comfortable. We also enjoyed using the snorkel gear, boogie board, cooler and beach towels, etc. My only warning is to those of you who are light sleepers; it will take a couple days to get used to the traffic noise and birds in the morning (the birds eventually drown out the noise of everything else, pleasantly reminding you that you are in a tropical region). The owner, Wayne, kindly provided extra ear plugs in the nightstand. Given that there is so much to see and explore on the Big Island, I found myself so tired at the end of each day I mostly slept through the noise after the first two nights.

I highly recommend staying in this condo. The description is accurate, the price is more than reasonable and the customer service was excellent.

Wayne checked in with us during our trip to make sure everything was going well. He also provided recommendations for activities and restaurants. The location was just a short drive to the Kona Farmer’s Market and the shops and restaurants along Ali’i Drive. We mostly cooked our own meals at the condo but did enjoy Killer Tacos and Lava Java. The City of Refuge (Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historic Park) was a short drive and absolutely beautiful. The Volcanoes National Park was a 2-hours drive and made a great day trip. When we weren’t out and about exploring the Big Island, we were relaxing on the lanai, enjoying the view. Thank you Wayne and Gail for allowing us to stay in your condo. This was our first time in Hawaii and our first time renting a condo though Home Away and we had a wonderful experience with both!
