About Anneliese Graf
We purchased the condo to be our second home, after renting at Keauhou Akahi for many years. We loved this complex and its tropical surrounding for all its amenities, friendly people and the weather. What else does one want? Having grown to love this beautiful island, we purchased a home to live permanently on the island. Our condo gave us so many hours of happiness, that we decided to keep it and share it with others in an effort to also enrich their life's and to enjoy this wonderful Island.
Anneliese Graf purchased this Condo in 2004

Excellent condo. Very comfortable, nicely appointed. Would stay again.
Had a great stay. This is an excellent Alii Drive condo. Nicely equipped and appointed. Convenient to downtown via car or the trolley. 20 minutes to great snorkeling and some of the best beaches in the world. The view is world class and the pool is wonderful. Anneliese is a gracious and responsive hostess. I have rented many places on the Big Island. I would stay here again without hesitation.
As with ALL ALII DR condos you must understand that you are at sea level and it will be warm and there will be road noise from Alii Dr. This condo has A/C in the master bedroom (most do not) so the windows can be closed for sleeping and this makes it comfortable.
We felt at home here.
Mahalo John for this great review. It was a pleasure meeting you and I trust that your Manta Dive, your snorkeling adventures at "two step" the Vulcano and all the wonderful experiences on our Island created spectacular memories
I hope that you will return and stay with us in the future
You are always welcome and appreciated
If you are staying in Keauhou this is probably one of the best condos available - period.
Hans and Anneliese have one of the nicest and best furnished/decorated condos we've seen in the Keauhou area. The view onto the golf course and the blue pacific beyond is just breathtaking (and you are not looking onto the backside of more condos as in other places we've seen). Watching the golfers come by and tee-off inspired my wife and I to take some lessons on this trip. We think we've found yet another fun pastime to enjoy on the Big Island. Yes, as some reviewers have commented, traffic noise can be a little bothersome, but that is the case with any of the condos adjacent to Alii Drive from Keauhou all six and a half miles back into Kona town. Even so, after our six-week stay we are ready to come back for two-months next time. Mahalo Hans and Anneliese.
we had everything we needed. There was even a goody basket waiting for us.
We really liked the location. The golf course and grounds were well kept. The pool was nice. It was nice to have the restaurant/bar on the property and it is in walking distance of the Sheraton.
Thank you for your comments! We truly appreciated you being our guest and hope that you will be back soon again.
Arguably the best equipped VRBO we have used. Great location. Anneliese is phenomenal.
Arrived to find some treats waiting and everything was as advertized. Clean and well appointed with close proximity to great snorkeling beaches (Ho'okena and two-step). Facing the 9th tee at Kona CC, got to watch some pretty bad drives early in the morning with my coffee haha. Virtually everything you need for day trips to the beach (mats, chairs, coolers, snorkel gear if needed, a boogie board) and TV/Netflix access to unwind in the evening. Excellent market less than 5 min away with a Theatre as well if you are bored. But that's unlikely or your own doing! Don't miss the lava flow viewing at night. The 2hr drive there and hike to the site were worth it. Spectacular. Too much more to mention. Anneliese was attentive with communication prior to arriving and checking in several times after to make sure things were good. All the great things about the condo location and amenities would feel lesser without Anneliese's charm and wit. With a host like Anneliese even though you are away from home on vacation you feel more at home. That pretty much says it all. Thanks Anneliese.
Ps. It's too bad that VRBO does not have a way to upload a few pictures do guests can share some great moments.
Aloha Tim and Kate, you truly were definitely the nicest guest and we are considering you just like some of the other guests as part of our Ohana. So happy that you enjoyed the stay at our condo. The Sheraton Hotel, which is 5 minutes walking distance is now offering a great historical Luau every Monday and Friday. When you return, you must incorporated this event into your itinerary. Perhaps it would be a great finish to the Manta Dive in front of the hotel.
I am really blessed to have met you and hope, that this will be the beginning of a new tradition to make it a yearly vacation on the Big Island.
This property is much more than a five star accommodation. It is conveniently located just near the beaches close by. A delightful shopping center with a choice of restaurants is within walking distance or a quick ride. The apartment is impeccably furnished and the kitchen has top quality equipment and appliances. The lanai faces the golf course and water, and the sunsets are remarkable. This is an ideal romantic spot on the big island of hawaii!
Really appreciate your wonderful comment
We constantly listen to our guests to give them the best experience in terms of accommodations
We are looking forward to your next return to our Island. You are part of our Ohana and we will welcome you and all our future guests with open arms and a great hospitality
Nicely appointed condo - nearly new leather furniture high end appliances and master shower.
We had a wonderful experience staying at this condo. To start off the stay we walked into an updated unit to find a beautiful fruit/nut basket on the counter and two bottles of chilled wine in the refrigerator, needless to say we were surprised. Our second night as I began to BBQ we ran out of propane, I called Anneliese for a new canister as per the instructions, (she offered delivery in 20 min. which I declined) the next day propane was delivered with a note apologizing for the inconvenience along with a gift certificate at a restaurant in town. You could not ask for a better or nicer landlord. Other than a little road noise in the morning our stay was perfect. Thank you Anneliese for your kindness.
I would recommend this property to my friends.
Mahalo for your review of our condo. We are so glad that you enjoyed the amenities and little surprises. You were such wonderful guests. Trust that you enjoyed a walk to the Bay and watching the Mantas at the Sheraton. We know, that you treasured the sunsets from the lanai. We hope, that you will return to stay with us on your next vacation on the Big Island.

located in a quiet residential area. Perfect for honey mooners, romantic get aways or if you are looking for a place to relax. Enjoy breakfast on the lanaii, visit the salt water pool for a quick swim and some rays. Spend the morning snorkeling, swimming or kayaking at the Keauhou Bay and afterwards grab a light lunch or refreshment at the newly opened eatery on the Bay. Walk to the Sheraton Hotel, which offers great life entertainment in the evening, a fabulous restaurant and bar, manta viewing, The Farmers Market on Wednesday at the Sheraton or on Saturday at the Keauhou Shopping Center is always fun to visit and to find locally made items great for souvenirs or find something for yourself.... think fresh baked bread and pastries, Kona Coffee, exotic fruit, fresh caught fish and live music. Rent a car and visit the Kilauea Volcano. The 'Visit Hawaii Blue Book' is at the condo and will give you detailed information on what to do or see.
