Keauhou Punahele condo description

Keauhou Punahele (pronounced Kay ah-hoh Poo nah hay lay) condominium is located in the town of Keauhou on the Kailua-Kona side of the Big Island of Hawaii with gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. This newly upgraded 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo is comfortably furnished as your home away from home with a touch of luxury and tropical comfort. The Keauhou marina and beach is a 5 minute walk away. This condo has a full length lanai (balcony) that overlooks the pool and spa. Grilling is allowed and a gas BBQ grill is provided on the lanai. The unit is tiled throughout including the lanai, except for the bedrooms which are carpeted. This peaceful condo complex is the perfect spot for a tranquil Hawaiian visit, an activity packed vacation, or something in between!

The master bedroom is newly furnished wth a king size bed, new world class beauty rest mattress, iPod docking station with speakers, a private full bath, and a walk in closet. The master bedroom also features sliding glass doors that open to the lanai. The second bedroom has a queen size bed. The third bedroom is a loft with two twin beds. All bedrooms are fully furnished and equipped with ceiling fans, and bed linens are provided.

The condo features 3 full bathrooms with showers. The main level bathroom is also equipped with a full size washer and dryer – a rare find in a condo! Plush full size bath towels are provided for all bathrooms.

The upgraded kitchen is well-equipped for a snack or a gourmet meal with modern cabinets and tile counter tops. The kitchen features full size appliances including refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher, electric stove, and microwave. For your cooking convenience we have supplied a blender for frozen tropical drinks or smoothies, a toaster oven, and a coffeepot and grinder. Gourmet-quality cookware, utensils, dishes, glasses, silverware, kitchen linens, and specially chosen Hawaiian cook books are also provided. There are stools at the kitchen counter for a quick bite or for chatting with the chef.

The bright and airy living room has recently been upgraded wth a refreshing ceiling fan and sliding glass doors to the lanai. New hawaiian art decorates the walls. The entertainment center includes a color flat screen television with cable, VCR and DVD player, and a stereo system. We chose a selection of guide books and Hawaii magazines, and compiled a photo album of interesting island sites to enhance your Hawaiian vacation. Wi-Fi is available at no additional charge for your business or entertainment needs.

THIS IS A COMPLETELY NON SMOKING UNIT. Smoking is prohibited within the condominium, on the lanai, in the entryway, and anywhere within the complex grounds.

The condominium complex features a pool, spa, and gazebo. Full-size beach towels are provided in the condo. In addition beach blankets, straw mats, and boogie boards are available in the condo to use at the beach.

The photographs featured here are actual pictures of the condo and were taken by the owners in Novemeber of 2009. Upgrades were made to the dining area, living room, master bedroom, guest bedroom and loft. All ceiling fans have been upgraded.

Keauhou Punahele is famous for its lush gardens, well-maintained units, and sweeping ocean views. It is a quality condominium complex with 93 units each with a private feel. The grounds are carefully manicured. The lush tropical plants and flowers are a delight to the senses. The Kona Country Club is nearby with a total of 36 holes; you can enjoy the upper 18 hole course with sweeping views of the island or the lower course with fairways right at the ocean's edge. The Keauhou Punahele condominiums are located next to the lower course.

                  The Big Island of Hawaii is home to the only safe rupturing volcano. Take the time to see new land made, lush rain forest, water falls galore, and beautiful mountain and cliff views.

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  Why Keauhou Punahele:
                  We decided after many years of visiting the Big Island that the peace and relaxation this incredible island has to offer was imperative to incorporate into our lives. We have always felt a level of serenity upon every return to this incredible island. We look forward to visiting when we are able and being able to provide a home for others looking for the same experience.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  This unit is on the third floor (but with only one flight of stairs,) allowing for a great ocean view and ocean breezes. Located at the end of Alii Drive there is very little traffic noise but plenty to do. The marina and beach is a short 5 minute walk away, hiking trails, and plenty of roads for biking. A historical burial ground and cliff diving is a short 10-15 minute walk away, the perfect morning walk. A popular snorkling beach is a short 5 minute drive away. Plenty of fish and turtles always, even if you don't snorkle.
