About the property

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 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 Kailua 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 3 generation vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay in this wonderful condo. It was open and spacious with lots of storage and a large walk-in closet in the master suite.The condo was clean and comfortable; it was well stocked with all the amenities - coolers, towels, and umbrellas for the beach, cleaning supplies for mishaps, spices for "home" cooking etc. The location was ideal - a 3 minute drive to our favorite snorkeling spot - Kahaluu Beach and maybe 10 minutes down to Kona (town); the Kona Country Club Golf Course and the Sheraton (place for my son-in-law's conference) were within 5 minutes. The grounds were nice and the views from the kitchen and our lanai were fabulous; we ate breakfast out on the lanai every morning, and watched the sunset from there many evenings. The pool was clean, big and wonderful to relax in at night after a busy day. Multiple fans in the downstairs and the loft, plus the sun screens for the lanai (which we didn't use) kept the unit comfortable (without air conditioning). We didn't open windows at night as Wayne (the owner) had warned us - the birds are plentiful and very talkative in the morning. We were aware of the noise but it didn't bother us. The assigned parking space was right in front of the stairs to the condo - which were no problem for me (I'm in my late sixties). The open spiral staircase and loft were made off-limits to my 5 and 7 year old grandchildren unless accompanied by an adult as they proved to be too much of a temptation.

We loved our vacation at this condo and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The owner (Wayne) was very helpful (especially dealing with my inadequate computer skills) and made the whole rental process run smoothly. Thanks again for allowing us to share your Hawaiian paradise.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Our two families loved this condo on the sunny side of the big island. It's only 2 miles down to some of the best snorkeling area and close to the coffee tasting areas. The kids enjoyed the pool - not sure why they would rather swim there than in the warm ocean but it seems like that is what kids do. It was great to have beach equipment in the condo like chairs and umbrellas that we could borrow. The well appointed kitchen and BBQ helped us save cash by eating a lot of our meals in. We weathered tropical storm Darby with just a little rain and wind. We were there during a hot spell so needed the fans and open windows to cool it down when we returned each day. SO much to do we didn't even use the TV. Wayne provided a lot of tips on places to eat and things to do that were helpful - a very smooth experience! Thank you for a great stay in a great place!

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.
