Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths plus queen sleeper sofa Sleeps 6

Our condo--Maluhia Punana--is the perfect place to relax, breathe, and enjoy your getaway. It is adorned with a fully equipped kitchen, granite counters, and all new appliances including a full size washer and dryer, and free wifi. Everything is accessible--the property has it's own fruit trees, pool, and BBQ area while one short block down away is some of the best snorkeling on the island (at Kahalu'u Beach). And don't worry about renting snorkeling gear, there is some in the condo ready for your use. The beach is always in sight--the gorgeous ocean view from the Lanai can also be seen from the comfort of your own living room, kitchen, and dining room. Whether you want to work, relax, or simply eat some breakfast--you will always be reminded that you are in paradise. What are you waiting for? Come getaway with us.

Location! Location! Kailua-Kona!: A two minute walk to the best snorkeling beach on the island, Kahalu'u Bay. There is an Art and Farmer's market every Wednesday a short walk up the street and a beautiful restaurant and bar across at the Outrigger Ohana. It is only a two minute drive to Sam Choy's, the wonderful restaurant by the Big Island native, Sam Choy! Beautiful, peaceful sunsets, calm inviting mornings, and another short drive into the hustle bustle of downtown Kona. It is easy to get on the highway and down to Captain Cook and to all the historic points south.

We have seen whales and dancing dolphins from the Lanai And, there is so much plant and birdlife to see right from your home in paradise! We have more variety of Hibiscus growing around our pool than in many of the local commercial gardens!

About Louise at: maluhiapunana@gmail.com

I have been coming to Hawaii, the big island specifically, since the 50's. this is my home away from home, and I love to share my love of the island with my guests and my friends!

Louise at: maluhiapunana@gmail.com purchased this condo in 2011

Why Louise at: maluhiapunana@gmail.com chose Kona Coast

This is a one of a kind complex. Small with only 15 units, and each one with a full ocean view. Koa cabinets and doors,new granite counters and so much space make this apartment different from so many others.

What makes this condo unique

There is a feeling of Ohana (family) as soon as you walk in. You enter the front door and the ocean greets you out the floor to ceiling windows. I have slowly selected local art to adorn the walls and make my home really be my Maluhia Punana--my Peaceful Nest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoy our stay. The management company was great. They arranged for the ceiling fan to replaced. Very helpful for our stay to be more comfortable. Location is perfect for us and our love of snorkeling.

Wonderful stay: highly recommend

  • 4 of 5

We compared probably 10 condo listings on The Big Island and are really glad we selected this one, for several reasons, including:

1. What you see in this listing is exactly what you get when you arrive, more so than any other condo we have rented.

2. This condo is in a beautiful. quiet, peaceful location with snorkeling options across the street. Be prepared to swim out and be careful on the reef.

3. This is a spacious condo with a KTA close by for good groceries and local poke.

Ideal in every way.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is just perfect in every way! The location is excellent--a short walk to some of Hawaii's best snorkeling (and kid friendly, if you're traveling with kids) at Kahaluu Beach Park. It's also walking distance to good dining and shopping, a short drive to downtown Kona, and has easy access to Hwy 11 to the South for exploring the rest of the island. The Lanai faces West and has beautiful sunset views. It's set back from Ali'i Drive enough that there isn't much noise other than surf and tropical birds. The condo is very well equipped--full kitchen with everything you'll need, laundry hidden in a small closet, books, high speed secure WiFi internet, books and tourist literature, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, towels, sunscreen, and even first aid supplies if you scuff a knee on a reef...

I love this place, and I can't recommend it highly enough!

Awesome location & Owner makes a great host!

  • 5 of 5

Louise did a great job making our stay a good one. The place was clean and had everything you needed! An excellent kitchen stocked with all appliances and cookware that you could need. Lots of towels and linens and even snorkles, fins and etc for the beach.

Just a short 1 block walk down the hill to get to a great beach. The snorkeling here is awesome! We saw two sea turtles and beautiful fish.

This is a short drive to town - about 5 miles. The location is excellent! Far enough away to be quiet but close enough to be convenient.

The view from the patio is top notch - we saw beautiful sunsets each evening and ate almost all our meals out there. Thanks for everything Louise!

Great for multiple couples or even singles traveling together

  • 5 of 5

We had 1 couple and 3 singles and the unit still felt quite roomy. The sunsets are spectacular. It is a beautiful place and had everything that we needed. The internet was not working but that isn't why you come to Hawaii on vacation, right?!? Louise was very helpful. I highly recommend this listing.

Book It. Its perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I still keep thinking about my first ever visit to Kona Hawaii. Arriving at the Condo was just perfect. The pictures don't even do justice. The accommodations had everything we could possibly need and then some. Louise has thought of it all. She was becoming, flexible and so sweet to us. We woke at sunrise and walked across the street to one of the most adorable beaches in Kona to snorkel and say good morning to sea turtles. We cooked beautiful meals in a modern fully stocked kitchen and watched the perfect sunsets. A couple of nights we hung poolside and barbecued. This complex is small and private and perfectly located. You absolutely will find yourself content and happy with your choice to stay here. I can't wait to go back and will simply choose to stay here again. Thank you Louise for a bit of heaven.

Car: necessary

This gem is across the street from an incredible snorkeling beach (Kahalu'u Beach) where you can expect to see turtles and amazing fish. Everything is close by-- art festivals, cocktails, and live music are around the corner, and there are plenty of places to bike, dive, and hike.

Papayas, bananas and beautiful flowers grow on the property, and if you're interested in purchasing other fresh Hawaiian fruit, the Wednesday and Friday farmer's markets are a short drive away. The property also has a private pool complete with a pool house and gas bbq.

Other Activities: Besides the best snorkeling, there is a chocolate plantation a few minutes away with amazing Hawaiian-made chocolate, and dozens of shops and attractions in downtown Kona--also a few minutes away.

Golf: Golf the Big Island!
