Overview

Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Fully Equiped Condo just steps from the Ocean

2 Br+2Ba (Sleeps 2-6) Almost everything in this condo is brand new. Condo can sleep 6. The beds are queens, one is pillow top and one is firm and are equipped with luxury linens. The couch is a comfortable double foldout. It has two full bathrooms for the convenience of your guests.This Condo has a fully equipped kitchen with brand new appliances. There are two BBQ decks for grilling. There are extra snorkeling masks and fins and other beach equipment. The lanai has a partial view of Kailua Bay, Kona town and the mountains. There is a mountain breeze.. Great location near the ocean side of the condo but away from the noise of the nightclub/restaurant. One minute walk to the ocean where you can snorkel,fish, surf or swim. You can walk to the old airport beach and a Keiki (kids)swim beach. There is also the beach and swim area used for the Ironman Triathelon, where you can lap swim, snorkle or play in the waves. The Ahuena Heiau of King Kamehameha is across the street and looks as it did when the missionaries first arrived on this Island. The Kailua Bay Pier is right here. In the morning you can see spinner dolphins offshore, and a little bit later you can watch the deep sea fishermen offload, or the cruise ship set off. If you want more civilized activities, the restaurants and clubs are outstanding. The old palace is right across the street where they offer native arts and music as well as tours. You are next door to one of the first churches built in the Hawaiian islands, a beautiful stone structure with Koa wood interior. After touring, there is a cooling salt water pool on grounds and covered, secured parking.

The Big island is the best for active vacationers. It has everything from a live volcano to an active truck and rodeo crowd. You can beach bum, snorkel, scuba or zipline and ride horses. You can even go hunting here, deep sea fish, watch the stars from a huge telescope and snow ski down a volcano.

About Patti Merrifield

I live in Colorado and love the Big Island because it has mountains just like home. It also reminds me of my Colorado home because it has opportunities for fun social activities as well as natural unspoiled beauty. I love that Hawaii has both mountains and ocean. I like to be active and there are lots of opportunities for adventure. I can snorkle the beautiful tourquoise ocean or watch a live volcano. No where else could you do both on the same day! My place in Kona has great access, but it is also has all the comforts of my own home. I can refresh, relax and cool off here. Owning this home in Kona on the Big Island is a dream come true.

Patti Merrifield purchased this condo in 2012

Why Patti Merrifield chose Kona Coast

I chose this property because its location is ideal for families and active vacationers who want to experience everything they can. This place includes everything I want out of a vacation. The ocean and town activities nearby are great and I appreciate having air conditioned comfort when I return home. Having a condo in town means that sometimes part of the group can go one place and part can go somewhere else. This is great if I want to go shopping while my friends are out trying to catch giant fish. We love to explore the island, but it's fun to start your day talking to locals over coffee at one of the nearby restaurants. I also love the story of King Kamehameha living out his final days here in Kona and all the historical sites that are associated with that time period.

What makes this condo unique

Kona Plaza is just steps away from many activities but this condo is also comfortable to come home to after traveling around the island. I love the covered parking, in Kona it is such a convenience!

Location, location, location made our stay terrific.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us! It was in Kona, yet it was quiet. Other than the karaoke on a Friday night it was a very quiet condo and it was over at a reasonable hour so don't let that scare you away.

The condo had everything we needed and we felt TOTALLY at home in it. Patti was sooooo oob easy to work with and when we return to the Big Island again we'll want to stay here again.

The condo was stocked with beach stuff, towels, spices and the kitchen had everything we wanted- including mismatched dishes so we didn't fuss. It was very homelike and peaceful.

The coffee shop in the building was great and having the ABC store across the street was ideal. Also, the farmers market was a quick walk.

The nearby beaches were great and our only regret was that we didn't book a longer stay at THIS condo.

Thank you so much Patti, we loved it and hope to visit again.

PS stop looking and just book this before you muss out

Nice clean condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for two weeks in April/May 2016 and it was very comfortable, clean, quiet, and in an excellent location. This condo has everything needed for a pleasant and relaxed stay. It's a convenient location to be able to walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops & stores. Secure parking is included with the condo for longer sightseeing trips. We plan to stay in this condo again in the future.

Great accommodation in Kailua-Kona

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location in Kailua-Kona yet surprisingly quiet given its very close proximity to the commercial shops on Ali'i Drive. Spacious bedrooms (with comfortable beds), living room and lanai. Dining tables and chairs available both inside the unit and on the lanai. Very clean and well maintained, not only the unit but the complete building complex (parking, BBQ and pool areas) as well. Good secured underground parking. Good supply of watersport equipment (snorkelling gear, boogie boards, noodles) and picnic coolers. Relatively close to Walmart, Safeway and farmers market for all ones grocery needs. Excellent price, especially for a multi bedroom unit. Very responsive owner. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

Clean, modern, very convenient

  • 5 of 5

We used this condo as our base of operations for two adults staying for a week in Kona. It was roomy, had nice amenities (nice to have an in-unit washer and dryer), and hard to beat for convenience: take the elevator to the basement, walk out of the garage, and you're in the heart of Kona, walking distance to just about everything. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Ultraman World Championships and needed a good place for our "base camp" lodging - - and this was definitely it! Easy walking to the King Kam hotel for meetings or functions, the pier and beach for swimming, and all the main Kona-town restaurants and bars are in easy walking distance. The condo is clean, with freezing a/c, dishwasher, washer/dryer and lots of water toys including boogie boards, snorkeling gear and water noodles. There are even a couple ice chests you can use. Plenty of towels are provided as well. The only down side was the loud construction going on in a neighboring condo - VERY loud pounding every day - but that is not the fault of the condo owners. We would definitely stay here again!! :)

Notes:
With so much to do in town, families do not always have to agree on all activities. Mom may want to golf or shop while Dad goes deep-sea fishing or takes a jog along the Ironman route. Part of the family may want to take a driving tour while others stay and play at the beach or pool. This a place to make wonderful vacation memories. You don't even need a car if you don't want one. You can shuttle to the airport, tour bus to excursion sites, and spend time getting to know one of the best little towns in the world. There is so much to see and do; you'll want to return over and over.
