Kanaloa at Kona condo description

A modern well-furnished ground-floor, 1500 sq. ft. oceanfront villa in the best possible spot within the most-exclusive condominium complex on the Big Island. Watch spectacular sunsets from the private lanai only 20 yards from the blue Pacific and 20 yards from a world-class golf course. At high tide you can occasionally feel a light spray from the surf. At night be lulled to sleep with the gentle sounds of the waves against the lava rocks and the breeze through the coconut palms.

This is truly tropical paradise in a safe, private, quiet surrounding as close to the Pacific as it's safe to be. The 18-acre Kanaloa complex is in a quiet residential district, a fifteen-minute drive from town along the coastline and a two-minute drive (1/2 mile) from Keauhou Shopping Center which offers a full-service grocery, large Longs Drugs, restaurants, post office, six-screen movie theater, and more. The Kanaloa Condominium complex is close to Kahalu'u snorkeling beach. It's a 25 minute 15 mile drive north to Kona's airport and a 15 slow drive along the coconut palm-lined waterfront road into town.

Kanaloa features 24-hour gated security in a quiet residential area, three pools (one for adults only) each with Jacuzzi spas, lighted tennis courts, all in a manicured setting planted with fragrant plumeria and gardenias, colorful bougainvillea, graceful ti leaves and swaying coconut palms.

This is our second home, our Hawaiian getaway which we offer as a vacation rental to discriminating non-smoking adults and well-behaved children when we're tied to Mainland chores. As such, we keep the Koa-wood kitchen equipped with new pots and pans, sharp knives, quality glassware and utensils, all the usual small appliances plus nice amenities such as a coffee grinder,toaster-oven and rice cooker.

The condo is tastefully decorated with Hawaiian art personally chosen from various Island galleries. There's also a small library with up-to-date Island guide books, including one personally written by the owner which gives personal recommendations of shops, restaurants, and suggested activities along with comments by our recent guests.

The large master bedroom has a king-size bed and large walk-in closet. The adjoining master bath has twin vanity sinks and a twin-headed walk-in tiled shower fitted with hold bars. The second bedroom contains twin beds and a walk-in closet. Its adjoining bath also has twin vanity sinks with a tub-shower. A top-quality convertible sofa in the living room also converts to a comfortable queen bed. There is no air conditioning; we rely on louvered windows, ceiling fans in every room, three large portable fans and the Kona breezes to keep cool and comfortable.

Large families should consider a joint rental with a similar condominium just across the pathway. For more information about this neighboring rentable condo see VRBO #1533.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: This is primarily a vacation home for us which we rent out when we and our family are not using it. I am a retired airline pilot having flown the Hawaiian route from the Mainland for years. My family lived on Oahu for 35 years. My wife is a retired school teacher, now tutoring out of our home. We have a small farm on the Central Coast of California near San Luis Obispo. We raise most of our own fruit and vegetables.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Becky and I find peace and relaxation just being at our condo. There is always the gentle sound of the surf just outside the windows. In the winter we watch the humpback whales from our lanai. We're usually snorkeling at nearby Kahalu'u Beach by 8AM, before the bay gets crowded, and while the sea turtles are still feeding. A 45 minute snorkel /swim, back to the condo to clean up and then a leisurely breakfast of fresh papaya, pineapple, Hawaiian sweet bread and Kona coffee out on the lanai watching the waves. It's a nice way to start off the day.
