Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Welcome to our peaceful, private paradise on the ocean. The waves will lap up at your feet. Watch magnificent Hawaiian sunsets from your private lanai. Sweeping 180 degree views from left to right. Situated in front of the Riviera surf break you can watch just yards away, surfers, belly boarders ,schools of bright yellow tang, turtles in the lagoons just below, ,playful spinner dolphins and the spectacular humpback whales. In season the whales give birth in the waters right in front of the lanai. They will breach and play for hours. A spectacular, once in a life time experience! In high tide the waves roar and you can feel the sea spray. An experience you can get lost in. Right outside the condo front door is the sparkling, clean fresh water pool overlooking the Pacific. Even though close to pool, it is QUIET! With so few people here, rarely is there anyone in the pool. You can swim, BBQ, dine and sunbath right outside your own condo. Reading for hours on your peaceful Lanai is a real joy. Enjoy your favorite Hawaiian beverages for the twilight, golden hour of sunset, hoping for a magnificent green flash. Yes they really happen and are breathtaking. The sun at the edge of the water flashes a brilliant peridot green flash. It will take your breath away.

Cleaning fee is discounted to only $99. No other "hidden fees"! That is a bargain!

About Kathie West

We come to Kona every winter and have always loved staying at the Kona Riviera Villas, finally one came up for sale that we couldn't pass up - it has the best ocean view around. We've decided to share our condo with others when we are not here, so it is furnished and stocked with everything we need for our vacations, and is our home away from home.

Kathie West purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kathie West chose Kona Coast

The condo we chose has an ocean view from every window and we can hear the surf through out. It's very relaxing when we come here to unwind from our busy life back in Washington.

What makes this condo unique

We can't say it enough: location, location, location. You can't beat this one. We eat all our meals at the table on the lanai, watching the waves, we even have surfers that surf the waves within view from our lanai.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is paradise! The condo is exactly as it is described and was perfect for my husband and I on our honeymoon. Right on the ocean, we saw dolphins during the day and sea turtles and eels at night in the tide pool right below our lanai. Downtown is just a 5.00-7.00 cab ride where you can walk to everything and there is a farmers market across the street and a good beach about 2 miles down the other side of town. The pool is amazing, right outside the door. The manager Brian was very nice and helpful. We will definitely be coming back here on our next trip to Hawaii!

101 is awesome! Kathie does a great job with the reservation!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here and we love it! The only negative this time was it was really really hot and the trade winds were not blowing so the bedroom was hot despite four fans blowing. I would suggest a window air conditioner in the bedroom. The location is perfect and the eels in the tide pools are great entertainment. Sunsets are great!

Owner's Response: Aloha! Thanks for the awesome review! And just to repeat, we do have a portable air conditioner available for use. Guests just need to ask our cleaning staff for them to bring it by. It's not often that it is needed, but it's good to know that it is available! Mahalo and hope to see you again!!

Stunning ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

This property was incredible. Very glad we stayed here. Unique experience being so close to the ocean, with the waves crashing almost at our feet! Beautiful condo. The only issue we had was the heat. No breeze, even with all the windows open. We had a hard time sleeping. May have just been an unlucky week to be in Hawaii, but if others mention a similar experience, may be worth investing in a small ac unit. That would have made a huge difference for us.

Great View and Location!

  • 3 of 5

Can't say enough wonderful things about the view and location to include the turtles and eels that come out in the evening time. The only drawback was that there was no air conditioning while e-mails indicated that there was. We borrowed another fan from a neighbor and though it helped it still was warm at night having to sleep with no covers. As long as you expect this and are okay, then the view and location is all that matters. Aloha!

Owner's Response: Aloha! Thank you for your wonderful review!! I know what you mean about how special the view is! As far as the fans, most of the time the ocean breeze is totally sufficient. For unusual heat, we do have a portable air conditioner available if you ask our cleaning staff. But normally the ocean breeze is refreshing! Hope to see you again!

Absolutely fabulous-exquisite beauty! Better than the photos even!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect. Great location, beautifully decorated, quiet and clean, well stocked with all the essentials, and with the worlds best close up view of the ocean. The patio is literally feet from the oceans edge so we watched surfers in the early morning and late afternoon, saw dolphins at play, even saw a turtle just below us, and watched the sun set each evening. Just the sound of the ocean so close was so relaxing, not to mention the spectacular view. Hopefully we'll be back many times to enjoy this perfect condo.
