Keauhou Akahi condo description

This spacious and bright condo (1090 sq.feet/101 sq.meters including lanai) is on the second floor of a quiet building overlooking the 9th fairway of the Kona Country Club with the blue Pacific beyond. Tastefully remodeled with built-in oak cabinets throughout, elegant furniture, and original art on the walls. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Large comfortable lanai for outdoor living, with your own gas barbecue grill. Enjoy ocean views from floor-to-ceiling windows in every room -- even from the king-size bed and the double bathroom. Swimming pool shared among only 48 units. Manicured and fragrant tropical gardens. Easy walk to Keauhou Bay, Sheraton resort, and golf clubhouse. Less than a mile to major shopping center and just a little further to the best snorkeling beach in Kona (Kahalu'u).


Things To Do: Be sure to pick up the free brochures available just about everywhere (airport, shopping areas, hotel lobbies) that describe the many activities you may choose and include valuable discount coupons. They also have extensive listings of restaurants and area maps. Sample titles: Hawaii Gold; This Week Big Island; 101 Things to Do. Another good source of information is the local daily newspaper, West Hawaii Today, available at many locations, including KTA supermarket and Longs drugstore. The Keauhou Shopping Center offers activities in the central court almost every day (music, hula, crafts): check the posted schedule.

Keauhou Canoe Club: See the Island the way the ancient Hawaiians first did: from a double-hulled canoe. The Canoe Club, headquartered on nearby Keauhou Bay (5 min. walk from the condo), promotes the ancient Hawaiian art of paddling. Visitors are welcome on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Two sessions, at 6:30 am and 8:00 am. Show up at the club at least 30 minutes early and members will loan you a paddle, teach you the basics, and take you on a one-hour energetic and magical trip. See the sun rise over Mauna Loa during the early session. Whale viewing in the winter months, spinner dolphins and manta rays all year round.

Aloha Theater in Kainaliu: The Aloha is an old-fashioned theater located in the picturesque village of Kainaliu, just a few miles south of Keauhou on Highway 11. It is home to the Aloha Performing Art Company and regularly presents live shows and musical performances. If a show is on during your stay, don't miss this chance to see good community theater and meet the local residents. A nice cafe is next door, for pre-theater dinner or drinks.

                      Car: Recommended

                      Keauhou is a beautiful residential and resort area just 6 miles south of the picturesque town of Kailua-Kona, with its great shopping and dozens of restaurants. Bordered by the blue Pacific on one side, and the verdant slopes of Mauna Loa on the other, Keauhou is close to all ocean sports and pleasures. Just a few miles upcountry is the world-famous Kona coffee growing area and picturesque 'old Hawai'i' villages such as Holualoa and Kainaliu. Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, the rainforest of the Hamakua Coast, Mauna Kea, Waimea/Kamuela and the ranch country are all easy one-day excursions..

                      Other Activities: Outrigger canoe paddling

                      Golf: The Kona Country Club is open to the public. It offers 36 holes, in the Ocean and the Mountain Courses. Green fees vary from $165 (prime time on Ocean course) to $60 (9 holes in the afternoon). The clubhouse is a 5-minute walk from the condo.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Started going to Hawaii 30 years ago, first for work, then for pleasure. After a full career in Washington DC in the non-profit think tank sector, retired to eastern Washington state -- at least until we truly retire to Kona.

                      Why the Owner Chose Keauhou Akahi:
                      We knew we wanted to be on the Big Island, and when we first walked through the front door of this condo with our realtor, it was love at first sight. It has everything we wanted: ocean views, bright large rooms, manicured gardens, a friendly community of neighbors who care about each other. Always quiet, and yet close to services, shopping, restaurants, Kailua village.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      A unique historical area, with the King's birthplace and the ancient fishing village on the Sheraton grounds. The beautiful Keauhou Bay and access to all water sports. The true 'aloha' of the community of paddlers at the Keauhou Canoe Club. The incredible sunsets. The fragrant trees at night.
