Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

Welcome to paradise. Our recently acquired 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1161 sq. ft. condo is completely remodeled in 2014 and ready for you to enjoy.

The large 25' lanai puts you incredibly close to the water. You'll love the oceanfront dining and relaxing, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner while watching the dolphins, sea turtles and fish dance in the waves plus see the whales during season. The lanai is fully covered, with a Hunter ceiling fan for your comfort, and is your own private place to see the incredible Kona sunsets.

The sliding glass doors and screens in the living room slide back entirely into pockets, opening up the living room and kitchen to the lanai and oceanfront experience. The lanai overhangs the pool and you have an unobstructed view of the reef, bay, beautiful sunsets and sandy beach.

Hale Pohaku was designed by award winning Hawaii architect Vladimir Ossipoff, called the “master of modern Hawaiian architecture”. It shares no common walls with other units, allowing flow through ventilation from the floor-to-ceiling louvers in every room. His unique design incorporates Kamaaina (local) style. The cool ocean breezes bring in the fresh air and are complimented by Hunter ceiling fans in each room, even the kitchen and master bathroom. The complex feels very private with only 6 units sharing the oceanfront pool, paddle tennis court and covered parking. The pool was converted to light salt in 2014, eliminating the need for chlorine and feels much better on your suntanned skin.

Inside our condo, you'll find beautiful new furniture, granite countertops, Koa cabinets and fresh, contemporary bathrooms. The furniture and king size beds in both the master bedroom and second bedroom are custom crafted by a local artist and features the Honu (turtle) carved in the wood. The unit is fully stocked with linens and towels, including beach towels, along with a selection of beach toys. The kitchen has top end appliances and everything you need to prepare meals featuring local produce from the nearby farmers markets. In the living room, you'll find a new 46” Sony full HD TV, DVD and audio system.

Location, location, location! The location is unique with a small white sand beach just steps away and your own private seawall gate to get there. Beyond the beach, there is a nice size wading area surrounded by lava and a coral reef. You could spend hours here in the water exploring or on the sand sun bathing. If you have children, they will love it when the turtles come over to the shore to visit. They are very curious and amazing to watch up close. And you'll find other great beaches and surf spots close by. Finally, the oceanfront pool has plenty of patio furniture, shaded section and a grassy area for sunbathing, plus its own bathroom and shower. These are a few of the many reasons Hawaiian royalty picked Kona as their home!

We are close enough to town to walk (about a mile and a half), with lots of scenery to see along the way. You can head to town in the morning to have breakfast and then walk it off on the way back to the condo, followed by a swim to cool off. You can also hop on the Kona-Keauhou trolley as a stop is only a block away and it runs from about 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The open air Alii Gardens Marketplace is about ¼ mile away, with local crafts, coffee and foods.

During the Kona Ironman in October, Hale Pohaku puts you right in the action as the triathletes train on Ali'i Drive. During the race, the athletes run south on Ali'i Drive, passing right by Hale Pohaku on their way to Keauhou. There they turn and head north again on Ali'i, passing Hale Pohaku a second time as they compete in the final leg of the Triathlon. Just set up your beach chair and cheer them on for the final leg of the Kona Ironman.

Please note, the building will have cosmetic repairs to the exterior concrete this summer. The project is set to last from August 14th-30th and the pool will be shut down. There will be ladders on against the front of the building during working hours for some of those days as well.

We hope that you enjoy our new oceanfront paradise as much as we do!

3 night minimum, 10 nights during Ironman and Christmas. This is a no pets, no smoking property. Hawaii Tax ID: 129-406-5664-01

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed in this unit for 10 nights. It is just as beautiful as the photos depict. There are only six units in this condo building and we hardly ever saw the other tenants. The kitchen was the most well-supplied of any rental we have had before. We spent most of our time on the lanai which is oceanfront and has comfortable furniture. The rocky beach out front was fun to explore, but the water is too rough for swimming. The pool was warm and we always had it to ourselves. If there is any downside to this rental, it is the road noise, heard mainly from the master bedroom. The automatic sprinkler also went off at 5:52 every morning, and there are roosters of course. We did have issues with hot water. It is a solar system and the water was hot most every afternoon, but a hot shower in the morning was never had. There is a water heater "booster" which we turned on, but still the water was only warm. This wasn't a big enough deal for us to report it to the management company. The location is good, close to downtown and within a few minutes drive to beaches. The furnishings and artwork in this unit were beautiful. We will keep this one on the list to return to one day!

Reviewer Comments:

2 couples for a 1 week stay...perfect! First off, as unusual as this may sound, the condo seems bigger than depicted in the photos. The lanai is spectacular & we spent the majority of our free time out there w/the big sliders open. The kitchen has more utensils than we have at home, so you'll be lacking for nothing. The wifi is strong and reaches out to the lanai, we had 4 devices going at once w/slight bandwidth issues, nothing major, just a bit slower. The beds were comfortable and bedrooms a nice size & yes, you can hear the waves at night. The complex back gate gives easy access to the beach & ocean, which feel quite private. The location is perfect, either a 5 minute drive to Kona, or a 5 minute walk to a small bazaar/market to stretch your legs. All rental arrangements went off with out a hitch, and emails were promptly responded to. There was one issue w/the complex itself, but it is out of the owners or rental managements control. All in all, we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Reviewer Comments:

We were blown away with this accommodation. It's location was brilliant, slightly away from downtown Kona,with the sea as your backyard, a sheltered cove which was a haven for sea turles too! This place was so well equipped with every appliance that could need if you want a meal at home, snorkel gear and water shoes, tennis racquets for your use. Two bedrooms with king size beds was perfect for our family of four. I really can't speak highly enough of this place. Amazing value for money. I would recommend this place to all.

Not really on the beach but the wave wask over the lava about 30 ft from the pool. Every evening was enchanted with a beautiful setting sun. Every night we were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the sea.Clean condo with everything you could need in the kitchen. The washer and dryer meant less luggage always a plus for is a quarter mile from Alli Gardens Market place a very nice place to visit.
