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!

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

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting right on the ocean. Was perfect for our group of 6. The huge wrap-around balcony/lanai overlooking the water was so pleasant and we ate all our meals there. There is no AC and it was a bit warm when we arrived but we followed the owner's instructions and opened the windows and closed the east facing blinds and it was always comfortable after that even with highs in the 80s every day. It was very clean and had a well equipped kitchen, and lots of nice extras like coolers and everything we needed for the beach. The pool and tennis courts were very nice, and not crowded at all during the week we were there. Beautiful landscaping on the property as well.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with everything about this condo! It was easy to find, the location overlooking the ocean was breathtakingly beautiful, the condo was spacious and comfortable, everything AND the kitchen sink was available for us to use and appreciate, the pool and the beaches were within close proximity as well as markets, stores and groceries.

If I ever return to the big Island I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

A Pleasant Stay

  • 4 of 5

The view from the unit was very nice. Saw a number of whales from the lanai, and the huge wave action was neat to watch. The unit is getting some age on it, but was nice and clean, and everything worked fine. The breeze that moved through the unit was very refreshing, therefore the lack of air conditioning was not an issue. It was also good that the KTA market was just up the hill, as it was real handy for groceries and supplies. The BBQ area was never crowded...always a unit available to use. The little beach walking distance to the north had great snorkelling. Pool was nice too.

Owner's Response: Dear Keith Thank you for your kind review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the spectacular wave action and saw lots of whales from the lanai. Also thank you for mentioning that not having A/C was NOT an issue as the condo gets a refreshing flow of air. Sometimes potential guests think that A/C is necessary in Hawaii but don’t realize that this oceanfront property gets a nice cross breeze from the ocean and mountain. I agree our condo is in an older complex but never the less since purchasing this unit in 2014 we have been continually updating the furnishings that provide the comforts of home. We began by replacing living room, bedroom and lanai furniture and adding custom window coverings throughout. We replaced major kitchen appliances and added lots of amazing artwork from artists from the Big Island. Now that we have updated the necessities that provide the comforts of home our next project is to replace the cosmetic things such as interior doors and bathroom fixtures which can date the unit. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to your next vacation to Kona. Warm regards, Shawna

Our family enjoys our special times together at the condo and is excited to be able to share it with others so they too can experience a piece of Kona paradise. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your vacation and look forward to your next visit! Warm regards, Shawna
