Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Celebrate the best in indoor/outdoor living in this spacious and well-kept ground floor unit in Keauhou Akahi! Conveniently situated on south Ali’i drive, the condo is 1/3 mile from Keauhou bay and less than one mile from the Keauhou Shopping center. Unlike northern Kona, Keauhou is very lush and green - it is where the Hawaiian Royalty, the Ali’i, once spent their leisure time! This sought-after location is perfect for golfers, cyclists, fishermen, water sports-enthusiasts and adventure seekers, as well as those desiring some well-deserved R&R. The Kona coast is the drier part of the island - less rain = more fun for you!

Being a ground level unit, the natural breeze keeps the condo cool and comfortable year round. A fully equipped kitchen will allow you to take advantage of the island’s fresh produce and fish while viewing the sunset. Extra linens and beach towels are available at your convenience.

The covered lanai has a gas BBQ, ample outdoor seating, and a retractable sun shade, with splendid ocean views. One advantage of this unit is the private garden - where you will find beautiful flowers and herbs growing, birds enjoying the birdbath and geckoes climbing the drainpipes. The grounds are very well kept with mature landscaping, reminiscent of a botanical garden. Across the driveway, the saline pool is picturesquely situated on the Kona Country Club. Watch golfers tee off at the 9th hole you soak up the sun poolside. Rinse off from the ocean or beach in the open-air hot/cold shower adjacent to the pool.

In this location, a car isn’t a necessity; but if you do, there is secure and shady parking nearby the unit. Both the Hele-On bus and the Keahou Resort open-air trolley stop close by on Ali’i Drive. Many local beaches and attractions are accessible via public transit. The Keahou shopping center has everything you will need - grocery and drug stores, farmer’s market, cinema, post office and restaurants.

Indulge your senses in local finds from the twice weekly farmer’s markets, each in walking distance. Go taste freshly roasted Kona coffee at a local plantation. Snorkel in crystal-clear Kahalu'u bay. Watch dolphins from an outrigger canoe. Visit the historical City of Refuge. Cycle on the same roads as the Ironman. Explore the ocean on a stand up paddle board. Fish for tuna. Visit the vivacious live volcano. Swim with manta rays. Be awakened by soft bird song. Experience the magnificent Hawaiian sunset. This is YOUR paradise!

Let this condo be the home base in Hawaii - this is where your Big Island adventures begin! Contact us today for special summer rates!

About Diane Neubert

We retired, bought this condo and started having the best times of our lives! I never thought I would be racing outrigger canoes at my age, but wow what fun it has been! We spent the first 4 months or so here without a car and the location is so perfect for walking or biking to whatever you need. We have 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren in CA so we go back and forth and open up the condo to others when we're not here. Life is Good!

Diane Neubert purchased this condo in 2005

Why Diane Neubert chose Kona Coast

We chose this complex because of the beautiful peaceful grounds, friendly neighbors and we had already fallen in love with Keauhou Bay and were so excited to find a place so close to it. We love having the grocery store so close and a post office, movie theater and pharmacy within walking distance. We like the fact that there are only 48 units here and that it has a secluded off the beaten path feel to it.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite benefit is to walk to the ocean and enjoy it's beauty. I've fallen in love with outrigger canoe paddling and get on the water almost every day without getting in a car. My grandchildren absolutely love the pool here. Keauhou Akahi has a wonderful feeling to it-it feels like a little hometown.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week at this condo. It is a main level condo with a beauitful privet garden outside the patio doors that makes for a wounderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or sit and watch the sunset in the evening. The condo is very clean with everything you need to enjoy your stay. I look foreward to returning to the Big island and would stay in this condo again.

Overall good, but better for two.

  • 3 of 5

Nice little condo with pool. Well furnished and easy to navigate to and from Kona. Shopping center very close and Sam Choys restaurant is amazing for local food. No air conditioning which is standard in Hawaii. The fans do a great job at keeping the condo comfy so you don't miss it. The condo is advertised as 2 bedtooms which technically it is. The second bedroom is more like a studio right next to the living space. It has a Murphy bed which eould be much improved by adding a mattress topper for more comfortable rest. Also the "bedroom" only has sliding doors to add privacy. Suggest that the early risers sleep here.

The master is very comfortable. However, it is very noisy with service vehicles going up and down the highway to the nearby Sheraton starting at 6 am. Remember the windows are open so you hear everything from bird calls to people having coffee on their lanais. Also be very cognizant of stray food crumbs. The ants will gather in seconds so wash and store everything in the fridge.

Buildings need better identification or a condo map would be helpful especially if arriving after VERY long flight and at night.

It's a good place if all you need is a place to lay your head at night but not for 4 adults for a long stay.

Owner's Response: I'm happy that you rated the condo good overall. I will see about a mattress topper for the Murphy bed. Everyone else that has commented on the Murphy bed has said it was very comfortable, but there is always room for improvement. Thank you for taking the time to make comments. Aloha, Diane

Nice condo for a family of 4!

  • 4 of 5

This condo fit our family of 4 perfectly! It is in a great location and the pool is awesome!! My only issue was there were tiny bugs on the counters etc. but I think that would be the case anywhere. We really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for the nice review. The complex has a company that comes in on a regular basis and I have a company on call that can come in and use a non-toxic orange oil spray if there is ever an issue. I would have called them if you would have told me you were having a problem. And yes, the bugs certainly do love Hawaii also and will come around especially if any food is left out. I hope you will stay with us again. Thanks again for the nice review! Aloha, Diane
