Overview

Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Fabulous Kahaluu Bay Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was the seventh year in a row that my wife and I have stayed in this beautiful apartment in the Kahaluu Bay Villas. The location is perfect for us as we love to snorkel every morning. It is a few miles south of Kailua-Kona and a 3 minute drive from the Keauhou Shopping Centre. The present owner updated and made many improvements when she bought it a few years ago. The apartment is very large, well equipped and maintained. We travel a great deal and always try to stay in apartments and this is the only one we have ever returned to. There is a lanai and full glass wall across the front of the apartment with 2 sliding doors that give excellent ventilation and allow an amazing view to the west over the bay and the Pacific Ocean. The sunsets are worth watching for.

This building only has 15 units on 3 floors and is very well maintained. There is a elevator from the undercover parking garage on the ground floor and it and the 2 staircases are locked for security. There is a very clean pool, garden, barbeque, eating area with dining tables, chairs and lounges. The permanent residents are friendly and helpful and we look forward to our visits every year.

Kahaluu Bay Villas is our "Home away from home".

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your wonderful comments! We strive to create a "peaceful nest" and to always have our home be everything you would want! You will find the living room furniture re-done when you arrive next time! We look forward to your return. With much aloha, Louise

Great Condo for Two Couples

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the condo late at night, but could hear the surf across the street. What a great layout for two couples! We both had our own on-suite bathroom with a tub and shower. The condo provided everything we needed. We ate in most of the time and appreciated the well-equipped kitchen and the BBQ by the pool. Added bonus - there is a washer and dryer in the suite. Everyone we met at the condo was friendly and helpful. It is a great location - across the street from the best snorkeling beach. We watched the sun set every night from the lanai. The condo was centrally located - easy to access everything we wanted to see.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great place. The location is just what I was looking for....not in the heart of the tourist area but close to restaurants, shopping and even a movie theater. But...the kitchen is so well equipped that cooked dinner in several nights...enjoying the sunset on the lanai.comfortable, airy, very nice pool and a great beach just on the other side of the road. I would definetly go back (soon I hope!)

Car: recommended

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--a full service Outrigger hotel is a 5 minute walk; 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 farmer's market is a short walk 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!
