Overview

Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Really nice stay

  • 4 of 5

First, Diane was very pleasant and easy to work with. Thank you!

The condo was very comfortable. Nothing flashy, but certainly well maintained, clean and with a few welcome perks. The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable. We appreciated the supply of beach towels, boogie boards and snorkel equipment. (Bring your own adult-sized fins, though.) Location is excellent -- not far from White Sands / Disappearing Sands Beach, which is a lot of fun. Very good value for the price. Many thanks to our host!

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for us. Everything we needed was right there. We were close to things we wanted to do but far enough away that it was still a nice, quiet, peaceful location. Most things were at most 20 minutes away but the bay was a 5-10 minute walk. We loved having enough space and being able to cook our own meals while on vacation to save some money. We had no problems while we were there at all and the price was amazing for all we got!

Kona Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the best kept secret in Kona for a family traveling with elderly parents. The location of the unit on the ground level and easy access to and from the car and swimming pool is very convenient. We enjoyed our meals out on the lanai, and love the little grassy area with the flowers and plants. The kitchen is well equipped so that we were able to prepare and cook all of our meals. This was our second time at this wonderful unit and we'll look forward to next year. Mahalo nui loa!

Kona Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Your condo was lovely and my husband and I instantly felt at home. The patio with the little garden and birdbath made our mornings very enjoyable and relaxing. We met some nice neighbors and truly had a wonderful time. Beautiful sunsets and great snorkeling days! Thank you again and hope to return soon.

Great Kona Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us -- family of 4 with 2 teenage girls. The place is very spacious and our daughters enjoyed creating their own bedrooms with the sliding panel room-dividers. We were happy to have our own master bedroom/bathroom as well. We were able to cook all our meals in the well-equipped kitchen and do our laundry. Great ground floor corner location so we could enter/exit easily -- no stairs, car and swimming pool right outside the door. The condo location was very convenient for our activities both north & south of Kailua Kona, and we were glad not to be in the midst of the traffic and bustle of the downtown. It was fun to go just down the hill to the Sheraton at night where they shine bright lights on the water to attract rays. Only negative was that, with the louvered glass windows, it was a bit noisy in the morning with people talking outside, cars, leaf blowers, lawn mowers, etc.
