Kahaluu Beach condo description

Our condo--Maluhia Punana--is the perfect place to relax, breathe, and enjoy your getaway. It is adorned with a fully equipped kitchen, granite counters, and all new appliances including a full size washer and dryer, and free wifi. Everything is accessible--the property has it's own fruit trees, pool, and BBQ area while one short block down away is some of the best snorkeling on the island (at Kahalu'u Beach). And don't worry about renting snorkeling gear, there is some in the condo ready for your use. The beach is always in sight--the gorgeous ocean view from the Lanai can also be seen from the comfort of your own living room, kitchen, and dining room. Whether you want to work, relax, or simply eat some breakfast--you will always be reminded that you are in paradise. What are you waiting for? Come getaway with us.


Location! Location! Kailua-Kona!: A two minute walk to the best snorkeling beach on the island, Kahalu'u Bay. There is an Art and Farmer's market every Wednesday a short walk up the street and a beautiful restaurant and bar across at the Outrigger Ohana. It is only a two minute drive to Sam Choy's, the wonderful restaurant by the Big Island native, Sam Choy! Beautiful, peaceful sunsets, calm inviting mornings, and another short drive into the hustle bustle of downtown Kona. It is easy to get on the highway and down to Captain Cook and to all the historic points south.
We have seen whales and dancing dolphins from the Lanai And, there is so much plant and birdlife to see right from your home in paradise! We have more variety of Hibiscus growing around our pool than in many of the local commercial gardens!

                          This gem is across the street from an incredible snorkeling beach (Kahalu'u Beach) where you can expect to see turtles and amazing fish. Everything is close by--a full service Outrigger hotel is a 5 minute walk; art festivals, cocktails, and live music are around the corner, and there are plenty of places to bike, dive, and hike.

                          Papayas, bananas and beautiful flowers grow on the property, and if you're interested in purchasing other fresh Hawaiian fruit, the Wednesday farmer's market is a short walk away. The property also has a private pool complete with a pool house and gas bbq.

                          Other Activities: Besides the best snorkeling, there is a chocolate plantation a few minutes away with amazing Hawaiian-made chocolate, and dozens of shops and attractions in downtown Kona--also a few minutes away.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: I have been coming to Hawaii, the big island specifically, since the 50's. this is my home away from home, and I love to share my love of the island with my guests and my friends!

                          Why the Owner Chose Kahaluu Beach:
                          This is a one of a kind complex. Small with only 15 units, and each one with a full ocean view. Koa cabinets and doors,new granite counters and so much space make this apartment different from so many others.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          There is a feeling of Ohana (family) as soon as you walk in. You enter the front door and the ocean greets you out the floor to ceiling windows. I have slowly selected local art to adorn the walls and make my home really be my Maluhia Punana--my Peaceful Nest.
