Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps-click video- picture 25

Located in Keauhou in a quiet gated property, this oceanfront complex sits on 17 prime acres with coconut palms and lush tropical landscaping. It has three lighted professional tennis courts, a large pool area, social pavilions and barbecue areas. This ideal location allows you to walk to shopping, restaurants, cinemas and Kahaluu beach, one of the best snorkel beaches on the island!

The complex borders the famous Kona Golf & Country Club.

Our oceanfront condo is a 1700 sq foot end unit located on the third floor of a three story building . It has 20 ft vaulted ceilings, and a loft, (which only top floors have ) and a wrap around tiled lanai.

In May 2014 we purchased the condo turnkey from the previous owners that had made it their second home and furnished, equipped and decorated it as such.

Since then we have continued to add new furnishings and décor to make it our own .

We have decorated the condo with amazing art work by the local artists which gives the unit the Aloha Spirit feeling!

The kitchen has been completely renovated with Cherry cabinets, granite counter tops and new appliances, including an extra large fridge with a water and ice dispenser in the door.

We recently ( Dec 2015) added a new leather wrap around couch, end tables, lamps , dinning buffet, queen bed and bedroom furnishings and a bar height table and chairs on the lanai.

The condo is one of very few that has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and opens onto the oceanfront lanai.

The second bedroom has a king sized bed and a mountain view.

The loft bedroom has a queen sized bed and a large bathroom with a

walk in shower and a ladies dressing table.

The unit has ceiling fans in all the bedrooms, kitchen, dining and living areas allowing the fresh mountain and ocean breezes to circulate throughout. New cherry blinds were also added throughout the condo.

The condo is equipped with 2 TV's ( one smart TV) , a DVD player, and lots of movies, books and games.

It includes FREE Unlimited Telephone calling within the USA and Canada and

Unlimited high speed internet.

The spacious wrap around lanai is furnished with 2 comfy loungers and has casual seating for eight, which provides a relaxing spot for watching the whales and dolphins.

The lanai faces directly west for viewing the famous Hawaiian sunsets.

The lanai provides a panoramic view of the ocean and coastlines and a spectacular 'WAVE SHOW' during high surf.

Being only 50 feet from the water's edge, the sounds of the surf and scent of the pacific fill the air for a Hawaiian vacation experience you won't forget!

About Shawna Bedard

We have been coming to Kona on vacation for the past 27 years staying in various condos on the Big Island. The Keauhou area became our favourite spot, and ten years ago we purchased a two week timeshare at the Kona Coast Resort nearby. We have enjoyed many wonderful family vacations during our annual 2 weeks at the timeshare. Since our boys are now young adults we want to spend more time in Kona so decided to purchase this unit at the Kona Surf and Racquet Club. We plan to eventually make Kona our second home.

Shawna Bedard purchased this condo in 2014

Why Shawna Bedard chose Kona Coast

We chose this property because of its prime ocean front location in Keauhou, close to shopping, beaches and many other activities, but at the same time within a quiet, secure and very friendly complex. This specific unit was chosen because of the spectacular views, its spaciousness and its homey feeling.

What makes this condo unique

The location, the views, and the spaciousness of this condo make this a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the Aloha Spirit!

We are happy to be able to share this special place with you!

Our favorite place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and friends from Boise just spent the last week in this unit. It is by far our favorite accommodation and place to stay of ANYWHERE we've traveled. We've been coming here (to this unit) since 2003, and it never disappoints. The condo is spacious, very nicely and fully appointed, feels just like it's our own home, and the lanai is to die for. In fact, once we get there its hard to get my husband to do anything but sit on the lanai. The weather was great, we were able to watch spinner dolphins every morning while having coffee, and it was so relaxing we ate in almost every night (thanks to the fully equipped kitchen). This will always be our first choice for a place to stay when we visit Kona, and we hope to return soon. We highly recommend this unit and this complex. Aloha!

WE LOVED THIS !

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this resort many many times over the past 20-years. Its our favorite spot and we have always stayed at our friends condo in the townhouse area, but with a larger group that wasn't possible. SO this unit was perfect three bedrooms with a lot of privacy (except the loft bedroom which is open to the living area so hard to get privacy up there from noise) and the view from the Lanai was great you cant beat it for the sunsets. The spinner dolphins were out most mornings. There was a ton of snorkeling gear so all 6 of us could go without having to rent equipment. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a hard and soft cooler to use for picnics and beach outings. We didnt use the umbrellas or chairs but it was great that they were there. I would reccomend this unit in a heart beat and will let friends know.

Great location - could have been a lot cleaner

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

Location is extremely close to the water, convenient for shopping and touring around the island

Wrap around lanai is massive and has numerous seating options

Kitchen is well equipped and numerous BBQ areas on property to utilize

Tons of beach gear including snorkel equipment, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc.

Tennis courts are in great condition (although had no lights when we were there)

Pool area is nice and relaxing

It was extremely hot when we were there, there are tons of fans in unit to help cool it off at night so AC was not really required (although would have been nice)

Cons:

Carpet is in majority of condo and was likely source of several severe allergic reactions for our group of 6

Condo was likely cleaner when we left it - two beds had to be stripped on our arrival and washed as it looked like cleaners just made a dirty bed, several items in kitchen were just put back in the cupboards dirty causing an insect problem for a lot of our stay including ants, cockroaches and likely termites, several items of dirty socks/underwear in unit from previous renters really showed the level of care the cleaners are taking

Ceiling fan in kitchen can only turn on with lights that are above it which causes a strobe effect at night, for us it meant we couldn't have that fan on at all in an area that needed it the most

Bathrooms have a mold/mildew issue, there is a reason there are no pictures of them

Wifi is extremely weak, most of our party had an issue unless they were directly beside it

Bottom line: location is great. However unit could use an update throughout, cleaners should be replaced, anyone with asthma/allergies should avoid until this happens.

Beautiful lanai

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for our wonderful stay at your condo August 2017.

Wow - waking up and enjoying coffee on the lanai was so relaxing,

but most of all the stunning sunsets are spectacular!! Lovely roomy

3 bedroom, 3 bath condo with all modern amenities. Was a bit humid

for August but we left all windows and screens opened and cooled

off fine at night.

Thank you Shawna

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

My family of four found this condo a very nice base for our week in the Big Island. It is tastefully decorated and updated, without the feeling you are living in someone else's house. The layout is well designed. We especially appreciated the chest of snorkel gear, beach chairs and the set of beach towels. This unit is one of the more desirable in the complex. It has a beautiful view of the ocean and an "L" shaped outdoor balcony. We kept the windows open day and night and, with its third floor placement, we did not have a concern about security. I have deducted one star based on two reasons: We found the July temperatures uncomfortably hot, especially on a couple of nights. Even using the ceiling fans and portable fans, we could not get it cool enough. (It is baffling that air conditioning is so seldom used in Hawaiian homes.) We also found the master bed too firm for our tastes.

Owner's Response: Dear Brad, Thank you for your wonderful review, and for your comment stating that our condo is one of the more desirable in the complex! Our goal is to ensure our guests have an enjoyable vacation so we are happy to provide the extras such as beach gear, tennis gears etc... to use. I am sorry you found a couple of nights very hot. Like anywhere in the world summer nights can be unpredictable and vary in temperature, but for the most part the condo usually gets the ocean and mountain cross breezes which keep it cool enough so that air conditioning is not needed. I hope you your family enjoyed the Big Island and look forward to any future visits you may have planned. Warm regards, Shawna
