Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

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!

Excellent views-everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for the 3 couples, with three bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The nightly sunsets from the lanai were picture perfect! The condo had everything we needed. I appreciated how easy it was to communicate with the owner and all of our questions were answered. We would definetely stay here again! Thanks!

Great Location, Stunning Views, Well Appointed and Welcoming Owners!

  • 5 of 5

What more could you ask for? This spacious multi-level unit provides comfort and privacy in addition to spectacular ocean views! Having rented many vacation properties in the past, this one stands out not only for the amenities provided (well stocked pantry, ample towels/linens, cookware for the most discerning chef) but also for the friendly and professional communication with the owners.

The wrap around lanai was enjoyed nightly by our celebratory party of six. The pool, courts and landscaping are impeccably maintained! Kahaluu Beach is a short walk (.5 mile?) to enjoy snorkeling with the turtles and colourful fish - this NEVER gets old!

This was not our first visit to the Big Island and we will certainly be planning a future return. The pictures are an accurate rendering although the reality is even better. If there is availability, book this unit! You will not be disappointed.

Great Family Reunion Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful condo for a two week reunion. We could not have picked a better site. With three bedrooms for three couples, and more importantly three bathrooms, our condo was ideal for our needs. Much of our time was spent on the large and spectacular wrap-around lanai, reading, watching boats and even dolphins, and enjoying amazing sunsets each evening. Even though the weather was hot, the perpetual sea breezes cooled the entire condo from front to back.

Using our rental car we had easy access not only to Kailua, but to beaches, parks, and attractions all over the big island. Keauhou Shopping Center is within walking distance and has a great variety of shops and restaurants, as well as a farmers' market on Saturdays. We also used the wonderful pool many times.

We found the condominium to meet all of our needs and more: water sports, games, reading, cooking, local information etc..... It was the perfect place to be together with family. We hope to return.

Thank you so much for sharing your vacation experience. Look forward to having you stay again for future family reunions!

First class family vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic two week vacation with our three adult daughters, son-in-law, and grandchild at this condo. The location speaks for itself and its a home way from home. The kitchen is very well stocked and the condo is well outfitted with boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chair, umbrellas, tennis rackets, and reading materials. Lots of helpful ideas from the owners too before we arrived and lots of travel information at the condo. Best condo we've had the pleasure of staying in. Thank you, Shawna!

Owner's Response: I am so glad to hear that you and your family had a wonderful time at our condo, and thank you for sharing your vacation experience! Having you refer to the condo as a "home away from home" is truly an honor as my goal is to ensure that the condo is well stocked with items that provide guests with all the comforts of home so they will have an enjoyable vacation! Thank you again and I hope you and your family are able to stay again in the near future. Warm regards.

No ac

  • 3 of 5

General location is good but nothing in walking distance. No AC. This was huge. Back bedroom does not get much breeze so it's always hot. Based on that alone I would not stay here again Condo is clean and neat. Ocean view is as advertised. Coffee maker works off and on. Beds could be updated. Master bedroom does not have real door but a sliding screen. The upstairs bedroom is a loft bedroom with a large bath attached. The evenings wee hot and we showered every night before bed to cool down The lack of ac is a big deal and I will not rent another condo unless it has it

Owner's Response: Dear anonymous; I am sorry you felt that A/C was a big deal. I know for some people air conditioning is a must and therefore I made sure to let people know on the VRBO listing profile that the condo has no A/C. I just spent 2 weeks in the condo from May 9- May 23, 2015 and never felt the need for A/C at all. I actually had to use a blanket a few nights. The key to keeping the condo cool is to close the blinds in the upstairs and back bedrooms during the day to keep the sun out but leaving the screens open. Also leaving the living room blinds and the patio screen doors facing the ocean open throughout the day lets the breeze from the ocean flow through to keep it cool. For guests that need more air flow than the ceiling fans that are in each of the rooms, there are plenty of portable fans in the condo to use. The entire complex has no A/C as well as many other oceanfront complexes located on the Kona Coast. This is because of the infamous tropical trade winds ( ocean/mountain breezes). I have never had any complaints about the beds. All the beds have been updated with brand name quality mattresses which most of our guests have found to be very comfortable. The master bedroom is the one in the back with the king bed, large closet and TV. The ocean front bedroom has a queen bed with the sliding Japanese Shoji doors. These doors are popular in many tropical condos since they allow more open space during the day as well as taking up less space than a hinged door. As for the coffee maker I am not sure about that. It worked fine when I was there... If it was a problem you should have contacted our resident property managers, they are always happy to help! The condo is located in Keauhou which is definitely a quieter area as it is approximately 5 miles from Kona village. However there is a shopping center with a grocery store, drug store, movie theatre, restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, clothing shops, hair and massage salon and a manicure/pedicure salon located only a few blocks from the condo. And of course the famous Kahaluu Snorkle beach is also within walking distance. Subsequent to writing this reply I spoke to the property managers and the coffee maker did break down and has already been replaced with a new one. I hope you have a better experience on any future trips to the Island.
