Overview

Keauhou Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-3)

Aloha.

Please be aware that our swimming pool is being renovated and will be closed during August and September. There is a community pool and health club in Kona that is available during this period.

The volcano at Hawaii Volcanoes Park is more active than it has been in years. Lava lakes and fountains can be seen from the visitor center. This may be a once in a lifetime chance to see this magnificant display.

When you enter our Hawaiian home, you are in the downstairs living room. A lovely dining area sits to one side, and a lovely sofa invites you to watch the ocean just beyond the patio doors, maybe watch TV, or just take a nap (the couch is a hide-a-bed sleeper).

Walk outside; sit on your comfortable lanai and watch the Pacific Ocean move by. Enjoy a cup of Kona coffee or a glass of wine. A parade of dolphins passes by in the early morning along with paddlers from the nearby Keauhou Canoe Club. You may even see whales breaching just offshore. It is difficult to stay indoors when the view from your lanai, especially at sunset, is so spectacular. If you are lucky, you may even see the famous “green flash”. It really happens.

Go upstairs; the entire second floor has been remodeled into a large bedroom suite. You can watch the ocean from your king-size bed and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the surf. You will awaken, refreshed, with the smell of plumeria blossoms just outside your window. A comfortable sofa-bed is available for another guest. A lovely walk-in shower and bath complete the upstairs suite.

Explore outside; walk down to the black sand beach to collect shells, look for sea turtles, or discover ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs carved in the lava rock. Just a short stroll beyond takes you to one of the finest snorkel beaches on the island. And if you have even more curiosity, you can look for the resident moray eel who lives in the rocks just below your lanai. He likes fried chicken.

Our complex is quiet, safe and lovely, with gardens, pavilions, 3 newly-resurfaced and lighted tennis courts, a large pool and friendly residents. The Keauhou Surf & Racquet Club is close to shopping, restaurants and unlimited beach activities. World class golf is within minutes.

The annual IRONMAN takes place in nearby Kailua-Kona, a lovely and vibrant village just 5 miles up famous Alii Drive. A scheduled shuttle bus runs up and down the drive several times a day.

Up the hill you will find yourself in “Old Hawaii.” Here you find coffee and mac nut plantations, historic villages like Kealakekua and Holualoa, wild groves of papaya, guava and mango. The cool elevations can be a welcome contrast to the sunny and dry weather that has made the Kona Coast a favorite destination for generations of Hawaiians and visitors alike.

Aloha.

About WL FLOOD

I am a pediatrician, and my wife is an educator and writer. You will find several of her books on the bookshelves.

WL FLOOD purchased this condo in 1995

Why WL FLOOD chose Kona Coast

We first came to Hawaii in 1970, and have been returning ever since. My wife's parents retired to Kona over 30 years ago and we purchased our unit to be able to visit and spend time with them and our growing family in this lovely place.

What makes this condo unique

The sunsets, and the protected location on the bay, make this one of the loveliest locations we have ever seen, anywhere. You can even live here without a car! The shopping is up the hill with a fabulous Farmer's Market on Saturday. You can buy organic vegetables, fruits, coffee and flowers from the growers. We can walk to the beach, play tennis, snorkel with the manta rays, or just sit and relax. We can do much of our work using the very fast broadband wireless connection.

Great place with a magic view!

  • 5 of 5

This is real germ. Very cleaver layout, with a nice kitchen with everything you need. We are a young family and the place was a perfect for us to explore the region. 2steps and Kahaluu in the morning for world class snorkeling, the northern beaches in the afternoon and the most perfect sun set from the lanai (we saw the green flash!!!) . Excellent value and highly recommended.

Note, this is Kona, and we went in July, so it was hot!!! But the fans allowed us to sleep well every night.

Best Vacation Unit Ever! It Doesn't Get Any Better!!

  • 5 of 5

It's got it all! Super clean with all the amenities. Ocean front featuring gorgeous sunsets right from the lanai or

living room or upstairs bedroom! Location can't be beat. Great snorkeling beach, Kahalu'u, is a 1minute drive.

Keauhou Shopping Center is about 2 minutes by car. For golfers, Kona Country Club is 5 minutes away.

Highly recommend staying here. Owner and property managers make every aspect of staying here smooth.

Will definitely rent here again. Mahalo!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay, really I can not fault it in any way. We are a family of 4 and we were in Kona for the Ironman. This condo was just perfect for what we needed and in a ideal location. The view from the front of the Condo was just stunning and the condo itself was very well equipped and very clean and tidy. definitely time and money has been spent to keep it looking so nice. The only bad thing about staying here was that it was so hard to leave! Thanks for helping make a trip of a lifetime so special.

Dream vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The location was wonderful. The gated community, swimming pool, and well maintained grounds provided for an amazing vacation. The condo was perfect for our time on the island. The close proximity to town was ideal as was the shopping center only 5 minutes away. The lanai was our favorite place each day. We'd start with coffee each morning and end the day with dinner and a Kona sunset. The owner and management company were easy to work with. We're already planning to return!

Quiet, ocean front and a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 10 nights in this beautiful townhouse and it was perfect for us. The view is spectacular and we had everything we needed. It is gated, quiet and within walking distance to our favorite beach, Kahalu'u Beach Park and the grocery store is less than 5 minutes away. I would highly recommend this rental especially for an over 55 couple who enjoys quiet, amazing sunsets, snorkeling, and a convenient location. My husband is an avid cyclist and enjoys climbing the hills in the area while enjoying the amazing views. The owner was very easy to communicate with and prompt with responses. We will definitely be back!
