Keauhou Akahi condo description

Celebrate the best in indoor/outdoor living in this spacious and well-kept ground floor unit in Keauhou Akahi! Conveniently situated on south Ali’i drive, the condo is 1/3 mile from Keauhou bay and less than one mile from the Keauhou Shopping center. Unlike northern Kona, Keauhou is very lush and green - it is where the Hawaiian Royalty, the Ali’i, once spent their leisure time! This sought-after location is perfect for golfers, cyclists, fishermen, water sports-enthusiasts and adventure seekers, as well as those desiring some well-deserved R&R. The Kona coast is the drier part of the island - less rain = more fun for you!

Being a ground level unit, the natural breeze keeps the condo cool and comfortable year round. A fully equipped kitchen will allow you to take advantage of the island’s fresh produce and fish while viewing the sunset. Extra linens and beach towels are available at your convenience.

The covered lanai has a gas BBQ, ample outdoor seating, and a retractable sun shade, with splendid ocean views. One advantage of this unit is the private garden - where you will find beautiful flowers and herbs growing, birds enjoying the birdbath and geckoes climbing the drainpipes. The grounds are very well kept with mature landscaping, reminiscent of a botanical garden. Across the driveway, the saline pool is picturesquely situated on the Kona Country Club. Watch golfers tee off at the 9th hole you soak up the sun poolside. Rinse off from the ocean or beach in the open-air hot/cold shower adjacent to the pool.

In this location, a car isn’t a necessity; but if you do, there is secure and shady parking nearby the unit. Both the Hele-On bus and the Keahou Resort open-air trolley stop close by on Ali’i Drive. Many local beaches and attractions are accessible via public transit. The Keahou shopping center has everything you will need - grocery and drug stores, farmer’s market, cinema, post office and restaurants.

Indulge your senses in local finds from the twice weekly farmer’s markets, each in walking distance. Go taste freshly roasted Kona coffee at a local plantation. Snorkel in crystal-clear Kahalu'u bay. Watch dolphins from an outrigger canoe. Visit the historical City of Refuge. Cycle on the same roads as the Ironman. Explore the ocean on a stand up paddle board. Fish for tuna. Visit the vivacious live volcano. Swim with manta rays. Be awakened by soft bird song. Experience the magnificent Hawaiian sunset. This is YOUR paradise!

Let this condo be the home base in Hawaii - this is where your Big Island adventures begin! Contact us today for special summer rates!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We retired, bought this condo and started having the best times of our lives! I never thought I would be racing outrigger canoes at my age, but wow what fun it has been! We spent the first 4 months or so here without a car and the location is so perfect for walking or biking to whatever you need. We have 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren in CA so we go back and forth and open up the condo to others when we're not here. Life is Good!

                  Why the Owner Chose Keauhou Akahi:
                  We chose this complex because of the beautiful peaceful grounds, friendly neighbors and we had already fallen in love with Keauhou Bay and were so excited to find a place so close to it. We love having the grocery store so close and a post office, movie theater and pharmacy within walking distance. We like the fact that there are only 48 units here and that it has a secluded off the beaten path feel to it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  My favorite benefit is to walk to the ocean and enjoy it's beauty. I've fallen in love with outrigger canoe paddling and get on the water almost every day without getting in a car. My grandchildren absolutely love the pool here. Keauhou Akahi has a wonderful feeling to it-it feels like a little hometown.
