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.

Excellent condo. Very comfortable, nicely appointed. Would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

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.

absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Nicely appointed condo - nearly new leather furniture high end appliances and master shower.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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. Aloha nui loa anneliese

This place was awesome to stay at. Anneliese was a delight to deal with, from the welcoming fruit basket to supplying laundry & cleaning supplies, this condo was well stocked with everything. Even provided a set of Golf clubs for my spouse when she found out we were golfers. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is that during the night the traffic at times would wake us due to its location on the road that leads down to the harbor. As an early riser I would sit peacefully on the lanai with my coffee read the news paper (delivered daily) and listen to the birds and the golf course come alive. the humpbacks could often be seen as we dined on the lanai & even binoculars were provided to get a better view. Thanks for a wonderful experience!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Brian and Terri, it was such a pleasure having you. Please plan us in for your next vacation on the Big Island. I will have a big bag of Kona Coffee waiting for you. For our coffee aficionados like you, we added a coffee grinder to our inventory. For an additional comfort we added an air conditioning unit into the master bedroom. Stay well and remember the soft breezes of our Island and the warm waters of the blue Pacific Ocean.

Comfort and care

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted with this condo rental. We have rented many properties in many different places but this one was by far the best. First, Annaliese is tremendously organized and responsive. All arrangements were made perfectly. Even the damage deposit was returned swiftly. She goes beyond making arrangements and ensures that you are well cared for during your stay. When some evenings were cool she even called to ensure we had enough bedding. The condo itself is beautifully decorated, and the kitchen and laundry facilities well-equipped. It is much better than the description and we lacked for absolutely nothing while there. The unit was scrupulously clean and very well maintained. The location is excellent, and people around the pool friendly. There is some morning noise with traffic going to the Sheraton but I'm up in any event so it did not bother me. The lanai looks over the golf course and you get some nice sunsets. I recommend renting a car to get around the island, although there is a trolley into town that can be caught at the Sheraton. I would very highly recommend this property to anyone and know we will be staying there again in the future. Thanks very much to Hans and Annaliese for sharing their property with us and making our vacation fantastic.

Owner's Response: We really appreciate you enjoyed your stay at the condo. Our goal is to make the stay of each guest as wonderful as possible. A vacation should be free of headaches and hassle. We are looking forward to seeing you in the future. We are constantly thinking of how we can improve our guest's experience. We just added an air conditioning in the master bedroom. Because we realize that sleeping in a big king size bed is wonderful, but having a little air on warm summer nights. Mahalo for leaving the condo in such good condition. We hope, that you plan your next vacation on the Big Island again with us!

Ideal location in this self contained condo.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very relaxing 2 weeks in this ideal Kona condo with beautiful views looking out over the golf course, palm trees and ocean. The sunsets were spectacular. We cooked and ate all our meals in the condo (and BBQ too). There was no need to eat out.

I would recommend this two bedroom condo to all couples and small families.

We hope, that you will chose our unit again for your next stay on the Big Island of Hawaii.

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.
