We are 4 miles from Cosco and near Walmart, Safeway, Longs, banks and the post office.

Our Kalanikai home has a full kitchen, with a breakfast bar. We have a large screened lanai that looks over the garden and resident Red Headed Cardinals. We have beach chairs, towels, coolers and some snorkel gear available. We have wireless internet. We also have a 42 inch HDTV in the living room, and an HDTV in the bedroom.

Car: Not Necessary


Kalanikai is located in the heart of Kailua Kona. Many of our guests come here without a car. However, if you want to take in the grandeur of the Big Island you will want to have transportation.

We are just 3-5 minutes walk from many restaurants and shops located along scenic and historic Ali'i Drive. The oldest church in the Hawaiian islands and a royal palace, now museum, are among the attractions 5 minutes walk away.

A protected small beach, suitable for young and old, is less than a 10 minute walk. Great snorkeling is accessible from this area and the site of the Ironman race start, finish, and swim are located here.

Besides snorkeling, there are a range of activities right out your door as well. They include para-sailing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, biking, and kayak and canoe paddling.

If you are not a water enthusiast there are plenty of oceanfront restaurants, lounges, bars, and parks for you to enjoy the good food, cocktails, and a sunset.

You are in the heart of some of Hawaii's rich historical grounds and sites. The oldest church in Hawaii, made of lava and corel with a beautiful Koa interior is just across the street. Kona also has one of the few royal palaces, now a museum, in Hawaii (the only State to have royal palaces) and is located next to the church. One of King Kamehameha I's favorite places, and location of his final days is on the shore of Kailua Bay. The site still holds the heiau and sacred grounds.

Spinner Dolphins put on aerial displays while you watch the sunset or paddle board in Kailua Bay. The Humpback Whales join them from December through March.

When you are ready to venture out of Kona you will find that there are so many sites to see, many withing 30 minutes drive, that you can not possibly see and do everything in a two week vacation. A few spots to hit include: numerous beaches located both north and south of Kona, historical sites that hold communities, sacred grounds, and the best observable petroglyphs in Hawaii. If you venture further away from town you can visit the birthplace of King Kamehameha I, the mountain known as Mauna Kea where the world's finest land-based telescopes peer into the clearest skies in the world, and the world's longest continuously erupting volcano, Kilauea, continues to build the Island of Hawaii. Coffee farms, rugged lava coastlines, historic Hilo town, and botanical gardens all provide many days of sightseeing and outdoor fun.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

Why the Owner Chose Kalanikai:
We love Kailua and the Big Island of Hawaii. We bought our second home in 2003. We rented it as a long term rental for several years. At this time in our lives we are spending time at our place and sharing it with other's is a way to 'have our cake and eat it too'. We hope you will love Hawaii as much as we do and make wonderful memories at Kalankai and on the Big Island.
