Keauhou Akahi condo description

Paradise is yours at our Keauhou Akahi condo located in the secluded Keauhou area; it is just south of the charming town of Kona and only 25 minutes from the airport. A lush, well-groomed garden complex with a lovely pool area awaits you. Our second floor, end unit condo has a spacious lanai overlooking a lovely golf course and featuring stunning ocean views. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed while the alcove off the living room holds a trundle bed which sleeps two. This condo is perfect for two couples or a family of four! (An inflatable mattress can accommodate an additional guest if required. And we have a portable crib for little ones!) The condo contains everything you could possibly need to make your vacation in Hawaii perfect: TVs and DVDs in each room; a huge supply of DVD movies and family board games; a laptop computer with printer and wireless Internet; several boogie boards; an assortment of fins and snorkels in a variety of sizes; and beach chairs, mats, and umbrellas.

Within walking distance from our condo, you can take a look at the wild goats on the hillsides, wander along a path with breathtaking ocean views, learn to kayak and surf, or take in a round of golf at the public golf course. Our condo is a mile away from one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island and a very short car trip to the picturesque town of Kona. There is also a shopping center nearby with a grocery store, great restaurants, and a movie complex.

Using our condo as your leaping off point, you can travel up to lush rain forests, hit desert-like locales, observe wild sea turtles in their natural habitat, visit working coffee farms, and walk over recent lava flows. Short drives take you to locations like Hapuna Beach, ranked as one of the best beaches in the state, or Captain Cook's Harbor, one of Hawaii's most serene, sacred spots. For the more adventurous, the island offers scuba diving, horseback riding, zip-lining, and helicopter flights over the active volcano. To help you plan your daily itinerary, we provide a large library of tourist books about the Big Island, as well as a binder filled with helpful tips and recommendations from our previous guests and from us. And to help you get everywhere, we have a plug-in GPS for your car! It is our goal to insure that you have everything you need to make your vacation to Hawaii a memorable one!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: My husband and I first stayed in a Keauhou Akahi condo on our honeymoon 30 years ago. Since that time, we have been continually drawn back to this special place. With my husband's deep love of fishing, scuba diving, and free diving AND my love of photography, our condo has proved to be in an idyllic spot for us.

                  Why the Owner Chose Keauhou Akahi:
                  We enjoy the garden setting of this complex, as well as its location. Unlike the hotels and condos in the Kohala area, our location is much closer to the lovely town of Kailua Kona. It is also within walking distance to Keauhou Bay (with its canoeing, snorkeling, and boating), to the local golf course, and to the shopping center with movies, restaurants, and stores. Just outside our door are wild goats, birds, and flowers galore. Truly, you don't even need a car to enjoy this setting (though having one is better.) More than that, we like the more serene, quiet atmosphere and weather of Keauhou Bay. In the Kohala area, wind is much more prevalent; in Keauhou, the wind almost never blows.
