Kanaloa at Kona condo description

This fabulous, large condo (unit 3203) occupies the prime location at Kanaloa at Kona, an ancient, historic Royal Hawaiian site. You are truly smack dab ocean front with unobstructed views and sounds (not set back behind a swimming pool or hemned in between buildings).

Its all here! Situated at the entrance to Keauhou Bay, this condo is front row to the breakers and the open ocean, surfers, outriggers. boaters, snorklers, scuba divers, the mountain, the Kona Country Club (2 golf courses) and the Royal Hawaiian Slide.

All rooms have water views. The living room and large private lanai have expansive, water front views of the ocean. The bedrooms face the water on the bay. At night, scuba divers visit giant mantas off the point fronting the condo.

See the mountain and the Royal Hawaiian Slide which centuries ago served as a venue for competitive native sledding from the top of the mountain into He'eia Bay. The Royal path to the City of Refuge passes directly below the lanai.

The Master BR has a California King size bed, a large walk-in closet, huge bathroom, make-up room and a small office for Wi-Fi (bring your laptop). A second bedroom has two extra long twin beds and a large walk-in closet. Adjacent is the second bath with a two vanity sink and shower/bath. The bedrooms & bathrooms are equipped with sheets, down-filled pillows, linens and towels (beach towels too). A large loft contains two regular size twins, closet and dresser.

Approximately 1900 sq ft of living space, located on the second floor with vaulted, natural wood ceilings throughout. (Only top floor units at kanaloa have vaulted ceilings.) The home is newly painted, tastefully decorated and features rare giant bamboo furniture. The dining room furniture is native hardwood, wicker and glass.

The kitchen is fully equipped with every appliance. On the lanai, there is a round glass table, 4 comfortable chairs, bar and fridge where you will do most of your dining, entertaining and relaxing. There is also a chaise lounge on the lanai for reading and snoozing.

There are lighted tennis courts, three swimming pools (one for adults only) and barbecue grills on 16 beautifully landscaped acres. The resort is a gated community with full time security personnel at its entrance.

Some of the best snorkeling in the area is in He'eia Bay right in front of the condo (watch your family snorkel from the lanai) where there are turtles and fish galore; and, when the surf is up you will have the finest waves for surfing.

Within a short walk is the adjacent, active harbor at Keauhou Bay from which sport fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving excursion boats to the City of Refuge, Kealakekua Bay and Cook's Monument, come and go. These destinations remain sacred places to native Hawaiians and are harbors par excelence, teeming with healthy coral and fish. Kealakakua Bay is known for its spinner dolphins and humpback whales, a wonderful place to kayak.

On Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings, join the rowing club at Keauhou Bay for a workout on the ocean in an outrigger canoe. Departures at 6:30 AM & 8:00 AM. Last we heard, they added a 9:00 AM departure. This is a private club, very friendly and willing to offer you a paddle and a seat on board their double hull canoes.

Kayak adventures also originate from Keauhou Bay. Or, you might decide to snorkel at Kahalu'u Beach (some say the best snorkel beach in the Hawaiian Islands) or surf or boogie board at White Sands Beach, both close by with lifeguards.

We are golfers! Besides wanting to be on the ocean, that's the number one reason we purchased this condo! Kona is a golf Mecca with many other wonderful golf courses in the area.

There are also trips to the Waimea Waipi'o Valley in the north for hiking and horseback riding; hiking and viewing the active KILAUEA VOLCANO in the south; and, star gazing on MAUNA KEA, one of the highest mountains in the world and home of the world's finest and most coveted telescopes.

The condo contains a written list of recommendations for restaurants, beaches, activities and the like to enhance your visit. Your booking includes a local property manager on hand to provide on location service if there is any problem.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About: Husband and wife, retired parents and new grand parents, love the Big Island for its beautiful weather, golf, scuba, snorkel, paddling and hiking. Oh! We love their Bridge Center too.

                  Why Kanaloa at Kona:
                  THE premier ocean front condo at Kona, nestled on a very private peninsula, front and center to 5,000 miles of open ocean as a backdrop to the hustle and bustle of Keahhou Bay and next door to the Kona Country Club. We can not think of a better place to be in all the world.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Besides golf, we have a front seat for watching marine activity. We are also conveniently located near shops and restaurants, yet isolated, secure and quiet for relaxing in comfort.
