A tropical experience awaits you in a quiet setting at Keauhou Resort.
Our remodeled condo is a comfortable, and well equipped beach vacation home. The soothing, lush green color palette with mango color accents, remind you that you are in Hawaii. The kitchen features maple cabinets and generous counter space, and has everything that a cook could need. This one level unit has a remodeled bathroom, with a newly retiled, walk-in shower, with grab bars and a bench. The condo features island style furniture and has a tiled floor throughout. The wall of louvered windows and opposite wall of floor to ceiling glass make the unit airy and light.
This townhouse-style condo is a desirable end unit opening onto a lush, private garden setting. The driveway leads to adjacent parking, steps from the front entrance. Our 850 square foot condo features 20 foot cathedral ceilings with four large fans, an open space layout, and decorator touches throughout. Dine on our 200 square foot lanai, while enjoying the distant , but lovely, ocean view, and the tropical, award-winning landscape of swaying palms, bougainvillea, plumeria, hibiscus, and mango trees. Meander down the garden path, to the two swimming pools.
Included for your use are beach towels and mats, beach toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, and a cooler for your refreshments. Our kitchen is well equipped. Our lanai includes an electric barbecue, and a full patio set as an option to the indoor dining area.
The Keauhou Resort is well situated adjacent to the Kona Country Club, featuring two spectacular golf courses. From our condominium, you can walk a block to the Keauhou Shopping Center, where you can find groceries, restaurants (Sam Choy's, Kenichi Pacific, Bianelli Pizza, Peaberry & Gallette, and others), gift shops, a gas station, a movie theater, post office, and other amenities. On Fridays, the shopping center features many daytime activities such as lei making, ukulele lessons, and a Hawaiian show at 6:00 PM.
An eighth of a mile down the road in the other direction is the beautiful Keauhou Bay, where you can find fishing charters, ocean, kayak, and snorkeling tours, volleyball, picnicking, and fishing. The very popular Fair Wind tour leaves from here. The Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort is on the opposite end of the bay, less than a mile away, where you can find restaurants, a bar, entertainment, manta ray viewing, and a Kona coffee café for your morning enjoyment.
In the other direction, a mile towards Kailua Kona town, is the popular 'snorkel beach', Kaaluu.
We are from San Jose, California, but we have been spending time in Kona since 2000, when our son moved to the island. Since Ansilla retired from teaching, we consider our condo to be our home away from home.
Roberto enjoys the laid back life style of Kona. It reminds him of his native Argentina. (If you wish, you can write your inquiries in Spanish or Italian).

Keauhou is located on the quiet, south side of Kailua-Kona. We love the proximity to the beautiful Keauhou Bay Harbor, with all of its marine activities. Even if we are not always sailing or kayaking ourselves, it's fun to walk down to the harbor, and watch the activity. When we do want to enjoy the downtown scene, we are a short drive away, down Alii Drive. Another advantage of our condo is that we can walk up to the Keauhou Shopping Center for a quick bite at one of its many restaurants, or to grocery shop, browse or enjoy a movie.
What we love the most, is that Keauhou Resort is not a high density development; the grounds are lush and beautiful, the pool is a short walk away, and is never crowded. Another thing that our guests tell us they appreciate about the condo, is that it is one-level, parking is adjacent, and it's fully equipped for a longer stay. They also like that our condo is an end unit, quite private, and a short walk to the pool.
We find it so relaxing. We eat almost every meal outside on the lanai. We know you will love it too.
We really enjoyed the owners tips on things to do near the Condo. Location was quiet, convenient and perfect for us!
We had a lovely stay at Ansilla and Roberto's condo in Kona. The condo is comfortably furnished, has plenty of privacy, and the kitchen is well-stocked with pots/pans/dishes/etc for preparing shared meals. One evening my parents and two friends came over for dinner, and we had no problem preparing and serving a meal for six. We have a toddler, so we brought a small Therma-rest for her to sleep on, which worked out just fine. I am used to bathing my daughter in a tub, but the shower was spacious enough for me to bathe with her; I think she discovered a love for the shower! Geographically, this condo is conveniently located. You can walk to a number of beautiful locations, and it was easy to travel both north and south of downtown Kona. We hope to stay here again next time we make it to Hawaii! Thank you Ansilla and Roberto for letting us rent your condo for the week; we made many memories on this trip!
This is my second visit to this extremely cared for little condo but my first visit to this unit (37) and I was not disappointed. This is the perfect location!! Close to the beach, turtles, shopping, a morning walk, farmer's market (Wednesdays), snorkeling without getting wet at the dock 5 minutes walk, and manta Ray's (10 minute walk to the Sheraton). Our unit was private (at the end of the walkway) and 20 steps to the pool area. The unit itself was lovely. We spent most of our time on the patio. The cat next door was a off and on visitor and we had a great time exploring the area around Kona and further afield. Can not recommend this unit highly enough. The owners were wonderful to work with and would happily reach out to them again to arrange another holiday in paradise.
This is a really lovely condo and a great base for our stay in Kailua. The kitchen is really well equipped, with everything you need if you are cooking for yourself - the supermarket is very close by. It's clean, spacious and has a lovely lanai and BBQ and a big spacious shower. We were staying for Ironman and it was nice to be slightly out of the town, but not too far away. It's quiet and peaceful and the grounds are maintained to an excellent standard, plus you can walk down to the shore where we snorkelled and saw a big turtle. The resort manager was also really helpful. I would not hesitate to book again if we are lucky enough to return - absolutely loved our stay!
I'm in the hotel business, so I know this condo was spotless. From the moment we walked in , we were amazed. This condo was more than what we expected, beautifully decorated and furnished. There was nothing wrong, everything was perfect. It is equipped with everything a home needs. Kitchen is fully operational. We were able to buy groceries at the near by supermarket or keep in mind you can go to the Costco close to the airport and stock up for the entire stay you are here. The condo is easily accessible, close to everything. WE loved, just loved the privacy of this condo! The pool was well taken care of as well as the landscaping all over the condo. We loved the bed, the chair that sits across from the TV too! You can put your feet up and relax in it, even take a nap during the day. We spend most of our time when at the condo outside on the lanai, breathtaking view and so peaceful. I am a morning person, I enjoyed waking up to the birds singing and watching the geckos nearby outside in the trees. Be sure to read up on the owner's recommendations and follow them, daily we took on a new adventure. We very much loved to visit Kaya's store. We are not coffee drinkers but wanted to try the organic coffee here and the organic brioches, very delicious. We enjoyed Bite Me Fish Market, great place for Happy Hour. We dined out and tried out both Huggo's and Huggo's on the rocks. We loved the foods and putting our feet in the sand at "On the rocks". Like the owner says, the taco salad is yummy. The condo offers everything you need, be sure to look around and take advantage of the snorkel gear, beach chairs and shoes, cooler etc...... All these items will come in handy when you are out adventuring, we were very happy to find them at the condo readily available. Best beach like the owner says " Hapuna Beach". You can't go wrong with lounging at the beach!!! Will recommend this condo to all our friends and family and will definitely return, thank you!!!!
Very clean, spacious, and just right for a family of 3. Close to everything. The condo was fully equipped with everything you need to cook. One small downside was there was no laundry detergent and had to purchase way more than we expected to use. The bed is firm but comfortable. Excellent landscaping, the condo was well decorated and cared for. Who needs an alarm when you have the birds out the back window. Would stay here again!
