There is also the beach and swim area used for the Ironman Triathelon, where you can lap swim, snorkle or play in the waves. The Ahuena Heiau of King Kamehameha is across the street and looks as it did when the missionaries first arrived on this Island. The Kailua Bay Pier is right here. In the morning you can see spinner dolphins offshore, and a little bit later you can watch the deep sea fishermen offload, or the cruise ship set off. If you want more civilized activities, the restaurants and clubs are outstanding. The old palace is right across the street where they offer native arts and music as well as tours. You are next door to one of the first churches built in the Hawaiian islands, a beautiful stone structure with Koa wood interior. After touring, there is a cooling salt water pool on grounds and covered, secured parking.
The Big island is the best for active vacationers. It has everything from a live volcano to an active truck and rodeo crowd. You can beach bum, snorkel, scuba or zipline and ride horses. You can even go hunting here, deep sea fish, watch the stars from a huge telescope and snow ski down a volcano.
With so much to do in town, families do not always have to agree on all activities. Mom may want to golf or shop while Dad goes deep-sea fishing or takes a jog along the Ironman route. Part of the family may want to take a driving tour while others stay and play at the beach or pool. This a place to make wonderful vacation memories. You don't even need a car if you don't want one. You can shuttle to the airport, tour bus to excursion sites, and spend time getting to know one of the best little towns in the world. There is so much to see and do; you'll want to return over and over....moreless

About the owner: I live in Colorado and love the Big Island because it has mountains just like home. It also reminds me of my Colorado home because it has opportunities for fun social activities as well as natural unspoiled beauty. I love that Hawaii has both mountains and ocean. I like to be active and there are lots of opportunities for adventure. I can snorkle the beautiful tourquoise ocean or watch a live volcano. No where else could you do both on the same day! My place in Kona has great access, but it is also has all the comforts of my own home. I can refresh, relax and cool off here. Owning this home in Kona on the Big Island is a dream come true.
Why the Owner Chose Kona Plaza: I chose this property because its location is ideal for families and active vacationers who want to experience everything they can. This place includes everything I want out of a vacation. The ocean and town activities nearby are great and I appreciate having air conditioned comfort when I return home. Having a condo in town means that sometimes part of the group can go one place and part can go somewhere else. This is great if I want to go shopping while my friends are out trying to catch giant fish. We love to explore the island, but it's fun to start your day talking to locals over coffee at one of the nearby restaurants. I also love the story of King Kamehameha living out his final days here in Kona and all the historical sites that are associated with that time period.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Kona Plaza is just steps away from many activities but this condo is also comfortable to come home to after traveling around the island. I love the covered parking, in Kona it is such a convenience!
