Overview

Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

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 place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Exteriorly you can tell the condo is heavily used and i was worried the condo would be less than stellar but it was very nice, had every possible amenity, was clean, with lots of space, and everything from racquets and tennis balls to coolers and beach towels. There was an iron and blow dryer, tv, wifi (strong), massage chair, condiments, a binder with restaurants to try and activities to do. I really enjoyed my stay. Ali'i drive is where everything is, right on the shoreline, and provides easy access to the highway. 25 min from the Kona airport. The beach across the street is a little difficult to navigate with large rocks to traverse before getting to the water but there are plenty of other beaches in the area which are more accessible.

Great upscale condo and terrific location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and comfortable condo where everything was supplied. Right across the street from a gorgeous boogie boarding beach. Close to Kailua-Kona and Captain Cook. I'd highly recommend it for 4-6 people.

Fabulous modern condo in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We were so glad we found this condo to stay in for our stay in Kona. It was perfectly located across from White Sands Beach, close to a shopping centre, and it was very clean and modern. We had plenty of room to spread out and we really liked being able to use the snorkel gear to explore the coastline. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, and even the bedrooms were dark and quiet , which was perfect for good sleep. Very important on holiday 😊򒠠Greg was very good with communication, and we would highly recommend this condo to any family seeking accommodation in Kona.

Beautiful condo in Kona

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful unit in Kona. It's location was great- right across from White Sands Beach, which is a great beach. It's an easy drive to downtown restaurants and shops. The condo is very well maintained and has everything you need. Very clean and nicely decorated. I'll be returning someday!

Awesome place right by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this condo right across the street from beautiful white sands beach! It's great to be able to just walk right down to the beach. Also there is a great pool and hot tub (plus bbq) in the condo complex. The unit itself is also great -- recently remodeled, has great kitchen, baths and a large lanai. Also they provided beach towels, soaps, etc., all the little things that make the trip nicer. Very well maintained place.

well maintained, clean and all the conveniences!

  • 5 of 5

On walking into the condo we just said WOW! The furnishings are tasteful and in good condition, with plenty of room for four adults. The complex is fairly quiet, nice super clean common grilling area near the pool. Kitchen well stocked, as well as plenty of beach chairs and extra snorkel gear for your use. Lots of clean fresh bath and beach towels. There is an additional set of stairs from the elevator to the front door of the condo, so consider that if you have anyone in your group who has trouble walking up and down stairs. Definitely recommend, and we hope to go back some day! Thank you Greg!
