Then take a dip down at the oceanside pool that perches on a lava point, or walk to the sea on the concrete path along the pool to watch the sunset over Kailua pier at the other side of the Bay.

Our first visit to the Big Island was so enjoyable. Our favorite activities included the Waipi'o Valley and Snorkeling.
Your Condo was the perfect "home away from home" in Kona. We were so pleased. My parents have stayed for years at the Hale Kona Kai and were very impressed with #116. Their condo is a bit noisy.
We love the fact it was so private and quiet. Our favorite part was sleeping on the futon at night with nice Hawaiian breezes--we loved it that we could sleep outside. That was great. That's a wonderful asset of the condo.
I liked walking on the soft carpet with my bare-feet.
The kitchen was so pleasant to cook in. We loved eating on the porch (lanai) and watching the bird feeding frenzy.
We enjoyed an easy week at this centrally located Kona Shores location. The enclosed garden is a favorite for songbirds which chattered as we drank morning coffee on the patio. The unit has a spacious feel - its corner location looks out, between buildings, to the ocean and above the cars in the lot which are hidden from view by the garden shrubs. All the comforts of home are in the unit. The location has ocean access and a short walk to town or to beaches. It was a perfect hideaway for the two of us.
We did not expect much for the price but the unit was very nice and clean. It had just about every necessity available to accommodate our stay. Enjoyed the birds just outside the patio, but didn't realize how much food they go through... kinda funny. It's nice that it was a walkable distance into town.
Had wonderful time there and would stay again.
We decided to stay at Kona Shores (#116) for our honeymoon and we are so glad that we did.
The place was just beautiful and so accommodating. Everything you could possibly need is in this condo, from kitchen items to extra bedding and even a nice TV and DVD player! We were able to save some money and enjoy breakfast there every morning, which was so nice. The condo is in walking distance to a lot and the first few days we were able to walk to shops and restaurants and get to see things that you do not see when having a vehicle.
The condo we stayed in was extra nice because it was at the far end by our parking spot so we didn't have a lot of traffic right outside our door and also the laundry room was right by our door, so that was nice! There is even a coffee place called "Green Flash Coffee" right next to Kona Shores and I thought that was pretty cool! I am a clean freak and I was very impressed with how clean everything was. Glen and Ginny were so helpful and very informative; they were always easy to get a hold of and very honest.
The pool was so quiet and never busy, usually it was just us there. We would go to the pool almost every day to swim in the morning and watch the breathtaking sunset at night. The other people staying there were very friendly and most of them go there every year. With being from Alaska, we aren't used to all the Hawaiian heat, but the air conditioner in the condo worked wonderfully and we were able to have a great sleep every night.
We walked (about 20 min) to go to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and their food was delicious! We were able to sit on the deck each time, overlooking the beautiful ocean and its waves. We also enjoyed Outback Steakhouse which isn't far from Bubba Gumps. Humpy's Big Island Restaurant was yummy too, and we were able to sit outside on the top deck in the evening and it was romantic.
I LOVE coffee, so we walked to Starbucks the days we didn't have a car, it was quite far for walking but worth it ;) driving, it only took about 8 minutes. So glad that we were able to rent a vehicle for half our stay and were able to drive and see the other side of the island and take a helicopter tour. That was exciting!
I love Kona and cannot wait to go back someday. We were very pleased with the whole stay and would do it all over again in heartbeat. My husband made my honeymoon dream come to life! Thank you Glen & Ginny
The condo is "first level" one bedroom condo. The condo is actually half a floor above the ground, with a huge private patio. The patio wraps around two sides of the condo, and has fantastic plants that give great privacy. Space inside the condo was huge, with clear evidence that owners take pride in their condo. Kitchen was very modern, and the bathroom was great. Close enough to downtown, that a healthy walk to lunch or dinner is feasible.
Kona Shores 116 was exactly as described - I was very happy with everything. Loved feeding the birds, and watching the gecko lick the orange. The unit was very quiet, stocked with every amenity we needed, and close to shops and restaurants. Thank you Glenn and Ginny for providing a delightful home away
from home, I will be back again .
