Royal Kahili condo description

Aloha and welcome to paradise at our vacation rental condominium on the Big Island of Hawaii. Conveniently located mid-way between Kailua village (commonly called Kona) and Keauhou, on Alii Drive, directly across the street from the ocean with sweeping coastal views from the pool area. With only 32 units, this is a small complex. Its tranquility and peaceful atmosphere starts in the open-air lobby with the Koi pond and waterfalls. A large, heated, crystal blue pool is a great place for exercise or relaxing beneath the umbrella shaded tables or chaises. Gas barbecues, at the pool area, invite you to stay and keep an eye out for dolphins and whales (in the winter months). This safe and secure development will make you feel at home. Our unit has been totally renovated with granite counter tops throughout, updated appliances, furnishings and top quality mattresses in the bedrooms. Professionally and tastefully decorated you may not want to leave, so book with us now and sip your tropical drink on our very private lanai.


Our home away from home.: This is my second home so I have attempted to make my unit comfortable and classy, with a tropical flare. The very private lanai faces a historic heaiu which is teaming with colorful, tropical birds to include Red Crested Amazon Parrots, friendly geckos, wild pigs and other fun wildlife. No one can see into my unit from outside.

Visit my condo website for more information and more photos of our unit and the condo complex. (Link below)

On site management: The Royal Kahili, General Manager is on-site and is very cordial, and friendly. Live the aloha spirit here. .

My second home is fully stocked so that all you need is your bathing suit, shorts, a t-shirt and flip-flops. You might find cheaper but you won't find better!

Payments: I accept credit card payments using the HomeAway/VRBO online payment system and 'e-checks' for guests with US banks. Payment from Canada or other areas outside of the U.S. require payment in U.S. dollars only. Additional fees may apply if US funds are not used. Initial contact should be via email. Phone contacts may not be returned. Reservations can only be made online through HomeAway and VRBO.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: It was always a dream of my husband and I to live in the mountains and have a second-home in Kona, Hawaii. That dream was completed with our purchase of the condo in 2008. Some of that dream is gone since his passing but it's my pleasure to share my second home with visitors to paradise!

                          Why the Owner Chose Royal Kahili:
                          The complex is small, quiet, tropical, well-maintained and friendly. The pool is rarely crowded and the views from the pool area and our lanai made the Royal Kahili our choice. The central location makes for easy access to everything from the beaches to shopping and to the highways. Having personally stayed in other condos here, it's wonderful to look out onto our private 'jungle' and not into another condo. Our privacy here can't be beat!!!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Although we assume no responsibility for their usage, there are frequently items available for the beach, snorkeling and bogey boarding. Just ask John, our manager.
