Property description

Kona Makai! Building 2 (unit 2303), Top floor unit.
Our beautiful, tropical condo has stunning ocean views in this breathtaking ocean front condominium complex in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island. Thats the sunny side. You can hear the ocean crashing from all rooms in the unit. We have fully redecorated and updated the entire unit in hawaiian decor to enhance your vacation. New lush, beautiful carpet has been installed through out the entire unit in December. The appliances are also new. The unit is extremely clean and beautiful. The gated grounds are impressively maintained and the complex is very quaint, peaceful and private. Snorkeling is fantastic right out front of the unit. There are around 100 units and only 3 floors high. From the unit you can see and hear the waves crash from master bedroom with ocean views from the master and front room. Whales and dolphins have seen swimming by while sitting on the lanai. Our Sugar Shack is 1 bedroom with a king size bed. We have a full bedroom loft with 2 twins and the front room has a queen sleeper sofa. We have fully equipped our unit with beach chairs, cooler, beach towels and more for your enjoyable stay. Our kitchen has been stocked with all the comforts of home. The condominium complex is amazing. The lush grounds are maintained beautifully with all the fragrant hawaiian flowers and plants. The ocean side swimming pool has been recently remodeled. At the edge the ocean where the waves crash we have a state of the art BBQ area with tables and lounge chairs to watch the sunset. There is a workout room with new cardio equipment, ping pong table, tennis courts, hot tub/spa and free covered parking. Although the unit is air conditioned ( 3 brand new ones) , a fresh breeze blows through from the bedroom through the open sliding glass doors rarely making the AC necessary. We have ceiling fans and air conditioners in the master bedroom, loft and front room. Our unit is located on the third floor, and there is no car traffic in this part of the complex. There is a fantastic reef right out front of the complex. A variety of tropical fish may be seen while snorkeling or diving.

The heart of the quaint town of Kona is a short walk from the our property (1 mile). There are fun shops and amazing restaurants, galleries and every water sport you could want. The Kona area has the best snorkeling and diving of all the islands. We have beautiful beaches just a few miles from our complex. The active volcano is a cool place to hike and explore. There is so much to do on this island. We have kayaked across the bay and had hundreds of spinner and bottle nosed dolphins swimming and jumping all around our kayak.They had their little babies with them too. What a treat that was. The beaches are large and non crowed. The locals keep the island just as the old hawaii used to be. The tourist are few and far between and the traffic is light.
Having just returned from our condo we had an amazing day swimming with the wild spinner dolphins. We cruised out on a boat with Captain Will and jumped in the ocean with the beautiful dolphins. I can get you the information so you to can swim with these playful dolphins.
Come see this beautiful oasis and have a lovely vacation. Come enjoy the Big Island of Hawaii!
If you do not see your dates available at this condo go ahead and give me a call. I have others in Kona to offer. Some are 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms.

About: Aloha! We are new owners and are very excited to share our newly remodeled and redecorated beautiful Kona Condo! We have traveled all through the Islands and lived in Maui. Once we found Kona we fell in love. The activities and local Hawaiian flavor was irresistible. Welcome to our Sugar Shack!!

Why Kona Makai:
Kona Makai is an amazing ocean front complex. It boasts stunning ocean views. The grounds are beautifully maintained with fragrant, native hawaiian flowers and trees. There is no car traffic next to our unit which makes it very quiet and peaceful.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The quaint town of Kona is only 1 mile from the complex. The shopping, restaurants and fun nightlife is a short walk. We have cool, garden breezes flow through out the condo and you can hear the ocean waves crash from the rooms in our unit.
