Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Ocean And Mountain View. Across the Street from Beach

It is all about location, especially the beach. Our condo is located just across Ali'i Drive from White Sands Beach one of the best boogie boarding and swimming beaches on the Big Island and the only one in Kailua-Kona. Taking an early morning dip, bouncing around in the waves, reading a book in the shade of a palm tree or watching a beautiful Kona sunset is what makes for a perfect vacation. We are also locate close (an easy mile south) to Kahalu'u Beach with arguably the best snorkeling in the area. You are almost guaranteed a swim with a green sea turtle and plenty of colorful fish. The calm and protected waters are also safe for young ones. But if you want to try your hand at surf or paddle boarding, the waters further out are popular.

We are also locate a short drive down hill from Keauhou shopping center where you can find just about anything from a large supermarket and drugstore, clothing shops, cinemas, takeout food, post office and two very good Asian Pacific restaurants, Kenichi and Sam Choy with its spectacular view of the coast. Keauhou is also quite a cultural center where you can see hula dancing or participate in lei making. Don't miss the excellent Saturday morning farmer's market for fresh, local produce, breads, local fish and meats, flowers, Kona coffee, condiments and crafts. And if you are lucky you will get to participate in local festivals which are often held at this community gathering spot.

Our condo is a value-priced alternative to the more expensive Kona and Kohala Coast resorts. We offer a lovely recently refurbished and lightly salted pool with hot tub, tennis courts on site and of course, the beacht. The Kona Country club with 2 18 hole golf coursed is locate 2 miles away. But our condo has a more home-away-from-home feel with the ability to cook your own meals in our fully equipped, gourmet kitchen or use the Webber grills available by the pool.

We have fully updated the condo with all new appliances, a new air conditioning unit and ceiling fans in every room and on the lanai, new water heater, granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths, tiles floors, WIFI, 3 flat screen TV's, a 55" one with DVD in the living room and flat screens in both bedrooms, and memory foam mattress topers on comfortable mattresses. The living room has a new pullout sofa with an upgraded memory foam mattress. We supply 'vacation read' books as well as a very good selection of historical and geographical books and material on Hawaii and especially the Big Island. We also supply beach towels, mats and beach chairs, coolers, some beach toys, snorkling equipment, boogie boards, rackets, puzzles and games and Hawaiian music CDs.

Because our condo is back from noisy Ali'i Dr., we enjoy a more tranquil ocean view. The two bedroom windows face out over undeveloped lands so that you can hear the peaceful sounds of the ocean waves as you fall asleep and awake to the songs of the birds. Our large (27') lanai is a great place to watch the sun rise over Hualalai with a cup of Kona Coffee or catch the sunset over the ocean after a fun filled day, or dine alfresco and enjoy the balmy tropical evening. Enjoying a hot tub or taking an evening dip in the pool is always a great way to end a perfect day.

We are lucky to have a shuttle bus which runs from the Sheraton Resort along Ali'i Drive (with a stop just in front of White Sands Village) to Kailua Village 4 miles north. Kailua offers churches, all manner of shopping, restaurants and night life, historical structures not to mention all the activities available at the harbour And we've created a book that details some of the many unique and interesting places around the island: black and green sand beaches, rain forests, volcanos, ranches, historical spots and botanical gardens further a field.

Our Kona location puts the best of the Big Island within easy and comfortable reach.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the spacious condo.. really nice to have a elevator there as well. We really appreciated not having to buy all the items we we would have needed in a hotel. We, enjoyed being close to the beach and using the chairs, towels, and snorkel gear. Thank you so much. We would stay here again.

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

I am so impressed by the condo that it is not a question of if I return, but when. Sure am glad that I found this gem. It exceeded my expectations. It truly is a "Home Away" from home, with plenty of room to accommodate the 4 adults and 1 child in our group.

The beds are extremely comfortable which for me is one of the most important features. All the other furnishings are just as nice. I love the decor and the island feel.

I was equally impressed by the location, we spent a lot of time across the street at the beach and saw many turtles there. We also went snorkeling just one cove over and saw a lot of yellow tangs among other fish.

Mahalo Greg, for your attention to detail and for sharing your condo with our family. Looking forward to next year and hoping to stay again!

Great vacation spot in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6. Condo is extremely clean. Parking available. Condo is right across beach. This condo is well equipped with anything you can ask for; paper goods (toilet paper, paper towels), coffee filters, sugar, even sunscreen and batteries. Homeowners have really thought about everything. They have gear for the beach and to go snorkeling. Very quiet complex. Pool is clean, maintenance crew out every morning.

Homeowners even have a book of recommendations for activities & places to dine.

This condo was a really great find. I look forward to coming back to Hawaii and would definitely stay here again.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The condo has all the comforts of home and more. The Martz family has ensured you will want for nothing during your stay. The large lanai was incredible. There is elevator access close by. The condo facility has a heated pool, hot tub, sauna and grill area. Magic Sands Beach is right across the street if you want to swim or soak up the sun. Close to town, farmers markets, shopping and many outdoor adventures. It is a home away from home!
