The condo is very well appointed with all the comforts of home. The beautiful complex is like new. The tropical decor and breezy trade winds will make you never want to leave. It is comfortable, tropical, spacious, and comes with all the amenities you will need for your home away from home. As you sit on the lanai enjoying your ocean view, you will be mesmerized by the singing tropical birds. Feel the gentle trade winds and watch the palm trees sway. Take a breath of the fresh ocean air, you truly are in paradise.

From serene sunsets to exciting live volcanic eruptions, the Big Island has it all. Kona has some of the world's best, golf, fishing, diving, snorkeling and beaches. You can run, bike or hike for miles, or just sit back and relax on the lanai. Along Alii Drive, which runs along the ocean, you will find beautiful quiet sandy coves. You couldn’t ask for a better location. There are so many beautiful beaches to go to, the Big Island is so diverse. I put up pictures of a few of my favorites.

I also have several albums of nearby scenic spots I would love to send you. Just let me know if you would like to see more pictures.

You will love it here and before you leave, you'll most likely be thinking about when you can return. Aloha...

About Gail Eddy

We have always dreamed about owning a condo in Hawaii This location has it all....This is our SECOND one at this complex. We also own 231615 and I can book you in a couple others, including a penthouse in our building. We loved the first one so much that we decided to get a second, so we can enjoy some time there too. We wanted a gentle beach for the Grandkids and we Love to snorkel. This is the perfect location. By the way The Big Island has the clearest water of all the Hawaiian Islands.

We feel truly blessed to own this piece of 'Paradise' and would love to share it with you. I take pride in helping you to make the most of your vacation and look forward to hearing from you. I will provide you with my "Fun to Do" list that I have compiled with lots of places....secret freebies too! :)

We own condos right next to one another. It is great for 2 families traveling together.

In Dec 2014, we bought a 1 bedroom unit at Casa de Emdeko. It has ocean view, newly decorated and brand new king size bed. If you are on a budget, this complex is perfect.I really love the beautiful ocean side salt water pool, the sand beach area (not for swimming though) the seawall at sunset and sunrise. The friendliness of all the guests, the beautiful gardens with over 40 colors of hibiscus...I could go on and on. The barbeque area with the lit tiki torches is so fun in the evening. Many of the guests come down. You will surely make new friends too.

Gail Eddy purchased this condo in 2013

What makes this condo unique

If you are looking for a gentle beach with GREAT snorkeling and that is kid friendly, this is the place you want to be. The condo is new and right at the Beach Park. Kids love the shallow tidepools and playing on the sandy beach. There is a pavillion, lifeguards, and yummy Hawaiian shaved ice available. The local 'save the reef' group is usually there with plenty of information on the fish, coral and turtles you will see. The ocean views from the condo are also incredible and the building is new and we have the elevator in our building.It comes in handy when arriving with your suitcases and groceries.

Relaxing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 2 couples vacationing together. Perfect set up relax and enjoy the birds singing. Being able to see the ocean and right across from the beach with fantastic snorkeling! We had no problem sleeping with the fans going so didn't need air conditioning. With the elevator being on the 3rd floor was no problem for someone with limitations. The manager Britt, was very helpful and made sure we had everything we would need. There was beach chairs and towels so you don't have to worry about renting any. Would recommend this spacious condo to friends when staying in Kona.

Love it.....from a REPEAT guest.

  • 5 of 5

We have had our best vacation ever here. Loved the location close to everything we wanted to do.The snorkeling here at Kahalu’u was perfect and I swam it daily while my husband advanced his snorkeling skills.

A trip to volcano was long, but worthwhile-great photos of new land being formed.

Sea Quest was fabulous, a morning adventure provided a view of spinner dophins, pilot whales, a large turtle and thousands of fish.

The condo itself was beautifully and tastefully decorated and we really felt at home.

Thank you so much!

Hard To Sleep

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo Feb. 3 to 22, 2017. I agree with the comments about great location and condo furnishings. However, both of us are sound sleepers but we were awakened 3 or 4 times a night by traffic noises. The condo building is located close to one of the main roads in Kona (Ali'i Drive) and the cross street goes up the hill to several condo and apartments buildings. Also every school day elementary and then middle school kids walk down the hill to catch the bus from about 6:40 to 7:20. I was disappointed that it took over a month to have our deposit returned and I had to email twice to ask for it. In my opinion, I kept getting excuses about birthday and retirement parties for the delay. I own a vacation rental and I would never keep a renter waiting a month to have their deposit returned. Obviously, we will not be renting this condo again and I can't recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: ********PLEASE NOTE THIS SHOULD NOT BE ON OUR PAGE. WE ARE IN DISPUTE ON VRBO. PLEASE READ ALL OUR OTHER REVIEWS ON THIS SITE AS WELL AS ON OUR 231615 WHERE WE HAVE OVER 80 5 STAR REVIEWS. WE STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE AND LOVE HELPING OUR VISITORS THAT COME STAY AT OUR CONDOS. MANY OF THEM ARE 4TH TIME REPEATERS AND WE LOVE THAT. AS FAR AS GETTING THE SECURITY DEPOSIT BACK, THIS CUSTOMER WAS VERY ANXIOUS ABOUT IT, PROBABLY BECAUSE SHE WAS ANXIOUS TO GIVE A BAD REVIEW. HAD SHE CALLED TO LET ME KNOW SHE WAS UNHAPPY, I COULD HAVE MADE HER HAPPY BY TELLING HER TO JUST TURN ON THE AIRCONDITIONING AND SHUT THE WINDOWS. MAHALO....

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha! We had an amazing time exploring The Big Island! We did everything from snorkeling, kayaking, diving with the manta rays, to swimming with the dolphins, zip lining, and Mai Tai'ing and dining! But what made our visit even more amazing (and convenient) was being accessible to it all. Gail's perfect condo was a wonderful setting for breakfast and dinners in, as well as a perfect retreat to wind down after some great adventures! The place is perfectly decorated and everything we needed was there! And I must mention that the beds are ACTUALLY comfortable! I feel that many places that we come across on our adventures we find that our one biggest complaints is an uncomfortable bed. Location is key! We had breakfast on the patio often with a perfect view of the water and watched some gorgeous sunsets Right from the balcony. This amazing condo is right down the road from all the shops and dining. And right across the street from awesome snorkeling! Not only that, but when you book with Gail, it's almost like having your own personal virtual tour guide! And she has her local concierge that helped us get some amazing deals and also had some great recommendation. Gail clearly puts a lot of time and effort into making sure her guests have everything they need and/or may want and literally has recommendations for everything you could possibly imagine! Dining, adventures, beaches, shopping, everything! My husband and I can't wait to return to Kona and we would definitely stay at this condo again! We highly recommend it! Thank you again, Gail! You and your condo are truly amazing! Aloha!

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

Gail,

Thank you for the opportunity for my family to stay in the Beach Villa 2-202. We had a blast. The condo was well furnished and very nice. The location was fantastic and I understand why you enjoy it so much. You were very easy and nice to speak with. Britt also was very nice to deal with and very quick to help. We left the condo in neat shape with just the linens to be changed.

We wish we could have stayed longer and tried more activities, but we were fortunate to be there.

Please pass out thanks again to Britt.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved it so much we came back for the 2nd year in a row! Gail is wonderful to deal with. She is responsive and truly cares about her guest's needs. The condo is in a great location , directly across the street from Kahaluu Beach Park which is one of the best snorkeling and surfing locations (for beginners/intermediate surfers) on the big island. My kids surf so the location can't be beat as they walked across the street to surf every morning. In general, the condo serves as a great base location to explore the entire island from. The unit has a solid outdoor lanai with a nice view of Kahaluu bay. Our family of 5 was very comfortable. The condo is stocked with everything you need for cooking including utensils, spices, condiments, pots, pans, etc. Also includes beach chairs, towels, boogie boards. The elevator comes in handy when moving in/out. We loved the salt water pool and Jacuzzi. The pool area has a great view of the bay, lounge chairs and a gas BBQ grill. Our overall experience deserves 5 stars, two years in a row. You should feel confident about renting a property from Gail!

Favorite local restaurants:

Teshima Japanese

Rebel Kitchen

Annie's Island Fresh Burgers

Jackie Rey's

Super J's

Surfing lessons/rentals:

Kona Surf Company - 808-217-5329 Dom lives across the street from the bay and you can go to his white van to arrange lessons/rentals. Duane is the best surf instructor so ask for him. He's practically family to us as he took care of my kids and made them better surfers.

Bike rentals (quality road and mountain bikes):
