Description of the Kailua-Kona vacation condo rental
One of the best Ocean Views in Kona Shores!
**Check Out The Testimonials From Our Guests**

Our 1 Bedroom condo with beautiful partial Ocean Views has recently been remodeled and updated. The condo is only 1 mile from downtown Kona - an easy 15 to 20 minute walk. The renovations include new carpet, bathroom vanity, refrigerator with icemaker, new stove, and all new tropical design furniture. We even added new room darkening drapery and a new Serta Perfect Sleeper bbed so you can get a good night's sleep. Save money on buying bottled water: we have an under-sink water filter in the kitchen along with a water filter on the icemaker.

Our condo is on the ground floor for easy access. It has a full size step-in shower with dual shower heads and seats. King size bed and queen size sofa bed, sleeps one to four, flat screen TV, Cable, Wireless Internet, DVD, stereo/CD, air conditioner, ceiling fans in every room. The condo is fully stocked with extra linens, beach towels, boogie boards, beach mats, beach chairs, and ice chest. The Kitchen has everything you need to make delicious meals and snacks at your convenience.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai watching the boats go by. You can even see dolphins splashing in the ocean from the Lanai.

The Kona Shores condo complex offers you a beautiful swimming pool just steps from the ocean. The pool was refurbished with new quartzite decking in 2010. Watch the whales and dolphins during the day, and the spectacular sunsets in the evening. You can also enjoy the great BBQ and picnic area located near the pool.

Swim with the Sea Turtles just 15 minutes down the road or fish from the lava rocks on property. Also close-by are numerous golf courses, coffee farms, and macadamia nut farms. Gorgeous waterfalls are only a couple of hours away or you can take a tour of the volcano, also a couple of hours away. And don't forget the many beautiful beaches! Everything you need for a vacation you will always remember.

Area Information
The Kona Shores complex is located 1 mile south of Kailua-Kona. The property is set at the water's edge among lovely gardens and coastal palms. Our central location is perfect to watch the ocean sunsets, far enough away from the road, but a short walk to the center of town. Here, you'll have the opportunity to relax at the pool, have a BBQ, or sit on the rocks and watch the sun set over the blue Pacific.

Come see the famous Big Island Black Sand Beaches, White Sand Beaches and there is even a Green Sand Beach. Visit Volcanoes National Park and see real lava flow or spend your day in a natural Rainforest. Swim with the dolphins or sea turtles at a bay just down Alii' Drive. Golf, Deep Sea fishing, Para-Sail, Horseback ride in Waipio Valley, Surf, Snorkel, Scuba, Sail, or just enjoy Sun-Bathing in the sun. Take a trip above the clouds to Mauna Kea Mountain where you'll witness breathtaking sunsets and observatories from 11 countries, but dress warm even though you are in Hawaii.

No need to ever worry about the weather in Kona where there is less than 10 inches of rain a year! Sunny Skies, Clear Blue Water, and Mountains with snow in the winter time in the distance. The Big Island has something for everyone.

    We fell in love with Hawaii the first time we came here in 2009. After our second trip in January 2011, we decided we wanted to own a piece of Hawaii. In August of 2011 we bought this beautiful condo in Kona and hope you will enjoy it too.

    We bought this particular condo because we knew we could...

Not only were the property owners extremely helpful but the condo was the perfect "homestead" for our Hawaiian adventure! It was a bit small but perfect for a couple. They provided the essentials (coolers, beach towels, kitchenware, cooking spices and coffee). We booked our stay the day before we arrived and the owners were very helpful and quick to respond. Only downside was the construction next door that started at 6:30am! Luckily our internal clocks were still on Cental time so we were already awake.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your review! We are glad that we could accomodate you on such short notice. I'm sorry about the noise from next door. If we had known, we could have contacted the condo manager and taken care of the problem. Thank you!

Kailua-Kona's "Welcome home!"

September 25, 2012

This delightful little hide-away was perfectly appointed with everything we needed. It was close to the ocean front, had a private pool, close to, but still set apart from the hubbub of the heavy tourist traffic area. It was clean and inviting to just relax and enjoy. The king-sized bed was super comfortable, the dresser and night stands provided plenty of 'put away' space. The kitchen is well furnished with good appliances, the living area was comfortable with plenty of seating area. The outside area is nicely furnished but is adjascent to a parking lot. The highlight...the "kings bathroom"! The shower is complete with a shower head on each end, and builtin sitting bench. There was no shortage of water if both are on at the same time. We would definitely contact this owner when a return to the Big Island is in our plans. Aloha

Review Submitted January 8, 2013 Date of Stay December 28, 2012

The condo was perfect for our needs. First off, Eleanor was very helpful answering questions via email before we even got to Kona. The condo itself was very clean and had everything we needed. The location is great. We did not have a car but the walk to downtown was only a little over a mile. The pool at the condo is a great place to relax and watch the sunsets. We would definitely stay here again!!

Wonderful, Comfortable Condo

Review Submitted May 13, 2012 Date of Stay April 19, 2012

My husband and I have stayed many places on the Big Island, but this was by far the most pleasurable of all. Very clean and well kept. I love the Pool and the grounds surrounding the pool. Lots of beautiful flowers and plants. We barbequed just about every night and then would sit and watch the sunset. Always a beautiful sunset. It is very close to the town of Kailua-Kona and you can either walk or rent a car to the town area. We rented snorkel gear from Snorkel Bob's and was really pleased with the quality of the equipment. I will love to be able to come back to the BI and stay in your lovely condo. Eleanor and Robert were very helpful when we had questions. We came home to more snow, but luckily, it is not sticking. Thank you for opening your home away from home to those of us who dream of owning a place of our own on the Islands. Many, Many, thank yous and Mahalo.

Kurt and I were pleased the minute we stepped inside this cheerful upgraded studio condo. A great condo for such an unbelievable value!! Everything was really clean and maintained well. The beautiful pool right next to the ocean is such an asset. Kona Shores is located in such a convenient place. You can walk in any direction and be filled with ALOHA. We will definitely recommend this unit to our friends and stary here again in the future.

Very comfortable condo

Review Submitted March 31, 2012 Date of Stay March 21, 2012

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in condo 119. It is exactly as described, very clean and nicely furnished. The complex is older but very well maintained. We didn't have problems with noise but some tenants that live there do leave early for work and we would sometimes hear them for a brief time. The condo is central to everything you want to see and do on the island. A very comfortable unit, nice king size bed, a great value for the price and just right for the 2 of us! Would definetly stay here again!

A Welcome Return to Kona

Review Submitted February 26, 2012 Date of Stay February 9, 2012

The condo and general property are well maintained. The condo is very comfortable and is equipped with newer appliances and WiFi. The condo does not have a land-line telephone. The laundry facilities are in a common area in the condo complex and require coins. The owners are very helpful and want their guests to make the most of their stay. Alii Drive in either direction is interesting and has a lot of people doing their morning walk. We did not do a lot of sightseeing this time, as we have been to the Big Island many times. Instead we relaxed and enjoyed the break from the weather at home. The condo is a very good value.

Great Place!

Review Submitted February 4, 2012 Date of Stay January 16, 2012

This was a great place to stay. It was nice and clean and updated. We made use of the pull out sofa and that was perfect. It was a great modern and updated. The unit had a nice view of the ocean and you could get a great view of the sunset by taking the very short walk to the pool area. Eleanor made everything so easy and answered all of our questions. The directions to the unit were perfect so there is very little chance of getting lost if they are followed. I would stay here again the next time we traveled to the island. This was a fantastic place to stay.

Cute, Affordable Condo

Review Submitted February 3, 2012 Date of Stay January 23, 2012

We were very impressed with this neat and clean little unit. Almost everything was provided: beach towels, cooler, mats (snorkel gear and beach chairs would have made it complete.) It was close to downtown Kona (great shopping!) and we discovered some great beaches for snorkeling and boogie boarding. The condo owner, Eleanor, provided us with complete information, helpful hints, recommendations & directions. The pool was awesome with a view of some spectacular Kona sunsets. We would definitely highly recommend this cute little condo to anyone seeking a comfortable, serene and affordable place in paradise.

Very affordable, nice little condo

Review Submitted January 17, 2012 Date of Stay January 7 to January 14, 2012

Condo was perfect for the two of us. It was clean and tidy, only thing missing was beach chairs. Nice ocean views from the lanai where we watched the cruise ships. Nice pool right on the ocean where we saw whales and spinner dolphins. Close enough to Kona village but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet too. We actually had a couple stop us to find out who the new owners were so they could find out about booking it. Apparently they'd stayed in the condo before and enjoyed it. Eleanor, the condo owner, was great to deal with and very informative. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to family and friends. Mahalo!

Clean and neat!

Review Submitted January 2, 2012 Date of Stay December 19 - December 30, 2011

The condo is perfect for two people as there is one nice king size comfortable bed. It is well equipped however, no coffee grinder --Eleanor she would get one for future guests. The condo grounds are nice, the view from the pool is outstanding, and there is a small table where you can buy coffee, papayas and bananas every day. Unfortunately several days we were there, there were two small children that loved to scream in the pool -no fault of the condo owner though. We comfortably walked to town several times being careful as the traffic can and was quite heavy (X-mas time). There is a little market and the Garden market with fresh produce only 1/2 mile south of the condo so that was very convenient. We felt that the $65 was more than worth it and we got all our cleaning deposit back swiftly. Great place and everyone was very friendly.

Great place! Beautiful area and close to everything in Kona

We are very pleased of the set up of the property. It is very clean, cozy, and it comes with complete amenities. Also, beach supplies are all provided by the owner which we really appreciated. We couldn't ask for more. The owner is very helpful and easy to deal with. I would recommend this property to anyone going to the Big Island.

Nice Relaxing Condo close to the beach and walking distance to down town Kona.
Morgan from Santee,CA
Review Submitted October 18, 2011 Date of Stay October 11, 2011

This was a nice relaxing studio close to the beach and short walk to downtown Kona and close enough to drive to many of the Island attractions. Quiet complex with a large pool. No need to go to the beach and snorkel we went right off the front end of the pool and had some amazing views. This is a great place to stay for a single or couple just getting away. I would recommend this condo to all my friends and family.

Clean, Cozy and Affordable

Review Submitted October 18, 2011 Date of Stay October 3, 2011

As promised, the property was newly remodeled and very clean. Everything was where it said it would be, including extra towels, sheets, pillows etc. The owner made sure that everything was working right and provided plenty of helpful tips and advice for the area. Condo was close enough to downtown Kailua but also far enough to be a little more quiet. (This was during Ironman week.) Close enough to walk to restaurants, but possibly drive to grocery store
