Description from owner

Aloha,OCEAN Views are yours! I f you are looking for one of the BEST

snorkeling Beaches on the Big Island this is the condo you want. We

have a gentle beach just steps away.The snorkeling is absolutely

incredible and since you are right there, you have the opportunity to

colorful fish and they are so friendly.We went in May, and I felt like

I was in'Fish Heaven,' they were that beautiful.Also there are lots of

sea turtles that love swimming along with you. I will be happy to

share some of our pics with you.

For the teens,there is a surf shop to the North of the protected

Kahalu'u Beach with surfboard rentals.Just past the gentle

swimming/snorkeling beach is a nice gentle rolling surf that the

surfers love.If you look on a satellite map, you will see the gentle

surf to the North of Kahalu'u Beach.If you go to Google Earth and type

in Kahalu'u Beach, Kailua Kona Hawaii,you can see our condo.I added

several pictures.Let me know if you can't access the link.

About the area

The Location, Location, Location. How can you go wrong owning a piece of Paradise at the Best Snorkeling Beach on the Island. Kahalu'u has everything we had wanted, the gentle snorkeling/swimming beach. The abundant sea turtles you can swim with,check You Tube 'Konagail' to view our recent video. There are also literally hundreds of species of colorful fish. I have so many great pics, I would love to send you some, just ask. If you like nature, you can hike to the many secluded Ocean areas along Ali'i Drive. White Sands Beach is a nice walk and about 1/2 mile away. You can stroll through the grounds of the Keauheou Outrigger Hotel where you will find ancient fish ponds, King Kameamehaha's old stomping grounds and an ancient birthing area by the Ocean just to the South of the hotel. Don't forget the BREATHTAKING Views from our condo. Morning coffee and afternoon cocktails as well as meals from the lanai....can't get any better than that!

“What a great place!”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2016

We cannot begin to fully describe what a fantastic time we had and how much we enjoyed our stay!! Being able to leave our doors open and listen to the ocean all night long was especially fantastic! Never needed the A/C even though it was mid 80's to low 90's while we were there. I just cannot tell you how perfect everything was. Even with construction being done on the complex while we were there we can't find a flaw. Everyone was pleasant and polite. Look forward to coming back again. Thank you!

“Wonderful property”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2016

This property was everything advertised; beautiful, clean condo with a spectacular view. We had great and friendly service from the manager. We were scammed by another vrbo property owner and needed to find a new place for Christmas holidays with little time. VRBO was no help at all but the manager for this property was wonderful for helping us out at the last minute!

This was a great stay for us. Everything we needed was right there and convenient. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return again soon.

“Beautiful property...we didn't want to leave!!”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2015

This is a beautiful condo. It was right across from the beach and very quiet. We were about 8 miles from the downtown action so it was a quick drive then we got to come back to our peace and quiet. Loved everything about it, no complaints at all. Will most definitely go back some day.

“View to Die For”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2014

We just got back from a wonderful vacation on the big island of Hawaii. Our condo was just feet from the ocean. The view was spectacular. Other reviews had said they saw dolphins and turtles from their balconies. The second day there we did see dolphins. A couple of excursion boats were letting passengers swim with the dolphins in view of our balcony. We saw the dolphin jumping in and out of the water. It was really great. We hadn't seen any turtles up until the day we left. About an hour before we checked out we looked down at the rocks and lo and behold, there was a green turtle sunning itself. We watched it until it was time to go. The condo had recently been remodeled and had a wonderful kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen was very well stocked. The bed was a king size and very comfortable. We had gorgeous views from the kitchen, living room, and bedroom. The roar of the ocean was marvelous. Sunsets were also beautiful. If we go back to Hawaii, we will definitely stay at Hale Kona Kai, room 306.

“Paradise as advertised!”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

Our stay was spectacular! The condo is exactly as pictured, with all of the amenities possible! We were so appreciative of the beach gear, my 8 yr old had a blast with the boogie board. We used everything, including the bar-b-q grill by the pool. Which, by the way, is wonderful - we loved the pool design and used it every day. The short walk across the street to the snorkel beach, the quick drive to restaurants, and the great sunsets from the balcony all made this an ideal place to stay!

Owner's reply: So happy you had a wonderful time. It has been our pleasure having you and your family as guests. Hope to have you back in the future.... Mahalo, ~Gail and Phil

“Wonderful place to stay”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2012

Immaculately clean, abundant towels and beach stuff, kitchen well stocked., free long distance to mainland, and right across the road from the best snorkeling on the Big Island. The pool was a bit chilly and doesn't get sun until mid- day but the beach is so nice it really doesn't matter. If we're ever lucky enough to return to Hawaii we would definitely see if Gail's condo is available. Both she and her property manager were available at the drop of a hat and had lots of good ideas on places to go and things to do. A real gem of a find!
