Penthouse Oceanfront Condo with Fabulous Views

Walk into our beautiful condo, step out on the large lanai, enjoy the fabulous ocean view, and you know that you've reached your ultimate vacation destination. There is truly no reason to leave as you sit on the lanai, sipping your coffee or drinks and view the surfers out front, the turtles below and the whales and dolphins beyond.

With a newly remodeled kitchen you can enjoy the luxury of new cherry cabinets, granite counter tops and new appliances while taking in the breathtaking view outside.

Despite the relaxation and solitude, if you want sightseeing, shopping or adventure, you still have access to all that Big Island offers. Visit the volcano, stroll old town Kailua-Kona, take a parasail ride, go hiking or mountain biking, snorkeling and/or scuba, the opportunities are endless. We are centrally located and close to beautiful beaches and snorkeling areas.

Our oceanfront condominium has everything you are looking for! Treat yourself to an oceanfront master bedroom suite and lanai. Our home is decorated with comfortable, wood laminate floors and a tile entry and kitchen.

There is a master bedroom with a king-size bed, two twin beds in the 2nd bedroom, and a convertible sofa that comfortably sleeps two. Ceiling fans in all rooms and a washer and dryer are also included.

There is Wi-Fi access in the unit for your laptop/tablet/phone. LED TV with 70+ cable channels and internet access for Pandora/Netflix/etc.

The large lanai affords privacy along with space to have wonderful meals, lay on a chaise lounge and sun or just take in the gorgeous view.

We didn't want to go home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed every minute at this condo. The location is perfect. We were close to the touristy parts of Kona yet far enough away in our own little community. The lanai was awesome. You are able to enjoy private breathtaking views of the sunset and surfers; the way the building is configured, you cannot see or really hear the neighboring lanais. We took time to visit the volcano and go to the best snorkeling spots I've ever seen in my life. One thing to note, there is no air conditioning in the condo. We happened to vacation during a very humid week but the condo is equipped with several ceiling and floor fans. The owners always answered my emails in a timely manner and were very helpful in making our vacation simply wonderful. Yes, we would come back to this condo again!

The view and the roar of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

I have really nothing negative to say about this place. The view is fantastic, just listening to the sound of the ocean was wonderful. The place has a washer and dryer, which was nice. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, etc. There are some beach toys, some coolers if you want to pack a picnic, which we did to the black sand beach. Its too far to walk in to town, but not too far away. And its nice being away anyway. Less crowds and traffic. One tip would be to check in and see what food and supplies are there before you go shopping for your stay. People, us included, leave stuff behind they can't use, or don't want to lug back home. There was some food, a bunch of sunscreens, etc. I could go on and on about what a great time we had there. The only thing that might concern someone is no A/C. I love A/C. I think it is the greatest invention ever. I use my A/C in the winter. And I survived a summer week there without it. With everything open, and the breeze blowing through, it wasn't that bad. Besides, we were really only there at night, and I wanted the windows open to hear the ocean anyway. The owner is responsive to contacts and any issues you may have. I always found a place to park. It was just a fantastic time. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your place. I will return to the big island some day, it is so awesome, and this place will be the first I check to see if its available when I'm there.

Wonderful, wonderful, hope to stay longer Next time

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect and beautifully maintained with basics in place. We loved it and our stay. Thanks so much for letting us check in a few hours early after a great beginning at the Poki Shack next door.

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Kona many times, we have lived there as well. This condo is in a great location, close to Magic Sands Beach and easy to get into town. The condo accommodated our family of 4 well and had everything we needed in the kitchen and bedrooms to make our stay comfortable. Bob's condo made a wonderful 'home-away-from-home' for us.

True Aloha Spirit, my son left a computer charger/cord in one of the outlets and Bob was kind enough to send it back to us! Mahalo!!

We will definitely be back!

Gorgeous views - needs some interior updates

  • 4 of 5

The view. The view. The view. Did I mention the view? WOW! We ate every meal (that wasn't at a restaurant) on the lanai. We saw pods of dolphins, sea turtles and all ages of surfers.

The location was terrific - close to airport, Magic Sands beach and a snorkelling and swimming beach too.

Quiet condo building.

Good BBQs on property to grill your own food. Fridge was LOUD needed repairs. 4 bath towels and 4 beach towels provided, as well as 4 dinner plates and 4 bowls provided were the bare minimum for our family of 4. We constantly had to do dishes and laundry; speaking of the washer and dryer had a mold smell to them - guests need to remember to keep the doors open to prevent the mold from growing in the washer and dryer. We stayed for 2 full weeks and really could have benefited from additional towels (both beach and bath) as well as more dishes.

The property was very clean (inside and out). The beds were comfortable. The living room furniture is dated and, if it were my own property, would have been replaced some time ago.

The local farmer's markets were very nice. We went to the other side of the island for helicopter rides and volcano tours. Well worth the drive. The luau we chose was actually quite close (Marriott).

The beach at the condo is very rocky and wavy so we only waded in it and we drove approx. 5 minutes for swimming beaches.

I really enjoyed the "borrow a book" tables located throughout the property.

For really detailed information on our favorites (shops, restaurants, helicopter rides, luaus, shave ice...) we left a very detailed letter in the condo reference book.

All in all we'd consider renting from the owners on our next trip to the BIG ISLAND.

(Our family: 2 parents - late 30's and 2 children pre-teen boy and adolescent girl)

Owner's Response: We're glad that overall you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry you had an atypical experience at our condo with some of the issues you identified. We are always prepared to immediately address any issues during your stay as long as we are made aware of them. Since it is two months after your stay, we aren't able to address them now, but after receiving your review we will go in after the next guest and resolve any issues that may be outstanding. We did notice the refrigerator sound after your stay and immediately fixed it. We have eight bath towels, hand towels and wash towels. The extras are stored in the linen closet in the master bathroom. We also have six beach towels. We also have eight+ place settings of dishes/silver/glasses,etc. We recently checked the washer/drawer and there was no smell, but we will certainly check again. We welcome feedback on how our guests' stays can be even better. We are continually updating and improving our condo and appreciate any input on areas for improvement. Mahalo for your feedback, Bob and Ronda

The place to stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Kona many times but this is one of the nicest places we've stayed in. The unit is right on the water and you can watch turtles, whales or dolphins and surfers from the lanai. You can see the ocean from your pillow in the main bedroom and it will lull you to sleep at night. The condo is as well supplied as most homes and has many thoughtful little amenities you wouldn't find in other rentals such as a clothes drying rack on the lanai, good hair dryers, coffee grinder, and even cellophane tape, which I needed for a birthday card. Because of the ocean, noise from other people was drowned out and we had no problems with hearing our neighbors. The owners, Bob and Ronda, were delightful to work with and were always responsive and available. We'll stay there again for sure.
