NOTE: I just downloaded about 100 reviews that were in our condo and left by the guests. I will be happy to send them to you.

The condo is very well appointed with all the comforts of home. The beautiful complex is only 4 years new. The tropical decor and breezy trade winds will make you never want to leave. It is comfortable, tropical, spacious, yet cozy, Comes with all the amenities you will need for your home away from home for your comfort and enjoyment As you sit on the lanai enjoying your ocean view, you will be mesmerized by the singing tropical birds. Feel the gentle trade winds, 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. 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.

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

Why Gail Eddy chose Kona Coast

Location, Location,Location....

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.

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.

A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are very fortunate to have stayed at this lovely condo 3 times. The condo is completely updated and has comfortable furnishings. It’s right across the street from Kahalu'u Beach, and the snorkeling there is really AWESOME. Some restaurants we enjoyed in downtown Kona are Fish Hopper (highly recommend this restaurant) Huggo’s on the Rocks, Oceans Sports Bar & Grill they have $2 tacos a few nights a week and Happy Hour on Mai tai, and if you’re lucky you’ll even see the lady making the corn tacos outside (really inexpensive & great food). Annie’s has great burgers & fish. Check out the petroglyphs at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Take the trail and you’ll end up at a beautiful beach where you’ll see lots of Sea Turtles. The Green Sand beach is a must. Pay the locals the $15 per person, and they’ll take you to the beach which is just beautiful. Getting to the beach is half the fun, it’s a very rugged road getting there, but the ride over was really an awesome experience. After you’re finished at the beach go to the Southernmost point in the USA. While we were there, we saw several people diving into the ocean. We would highly recommend taking the helicopter tour. Even though it’s expensive is a really great experience. For us, it was a once in a lifetime wonderful experience!! We visited many of Gail's "Fun To Do List" attractions & restaurants that she recommended and we really enjoyed them.

Britt the manager at the condo is very helpful, if you need anything while you’re staying there, just give her a call. The pool & hot tub area are very nice, never crowded. There’s even a gas grill we used several times.

Finally, a word about the "Owner." Gail, our contact was just terrific. She answered all our questions very quickly and was extremely nice and VERY accommodating. We hope to return again soon. We would recommend this condo to anyone who's looking for great place to stay & lots of fun in the sun. We had an AWESOME vacation, and hope to be able to return again soon.

Winter escape from the winter snow!

  • 5 of 5

Although we are currently back in the cold, snowy country of central Washington, we continue to reflect on our amazing vacation last week in the Kona area!  The weather was wonderful (82 degrees and no rain during the day), and we found the central location of the Beach Villa Condos to be perfect for us.  We absolutely loved the ability to wake up and go snorkeling (before breakfast) across the street at Kahalu'u Beach.  AMAZING!

We visited many of Gail's "Fun to Do List" attractions & restaurants, and enjoyed them all.  Thank you, thank you!!  The Punalu`u Bake Shop and Visitor Center on the way to the volcano is a real treat!!!

We met the Deves', Brittlyn & Matt.  We found "Britt" be easily accessible and extremely accommodating.  Matt made the car rental very easy and absolutely hassle free.  Thank you for that recommendation too!

Upon our condo departure, we trust that you (Britt) found everything satisfactory and in order. 

We loved our stay at the Beach Villas and hope to be able to return again.

Kona Condo on Alii Drive

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at these condos on previous trips and have always found them to be clean, with up-to-date furnishings, with all the comforts of home. This was our third stay and we continue to be pleased. We will come again. Gail was easy to work with and quick to respond.

Snorkel Beach condo

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo close to snorkel beach. Very comfortable clean well equipped condo. Slept well in king size bed. Loved the pool and being across the beach from snorkel beach. Saw or swam with turtles each day of our 5 day stay.

Convenient to shopping center, and Kona is just 10mins drive away or you can take the shuttle. Didnt need air conditioning due to nice ocean breezes but we did stay in December. Would love to return one day

Fabulous location right at Kahalu'u Beach, which has the best snorkeling on the island. ( I have been told that the Big Island has the clearest water in all of Hawaii.) You are only steps from the water.
