Kona Makai condo description

This is a condo in a beautiful sought-after complex right on the water. Every morning you'll be able to sip your Kona coffee on your private lanai while enjoying the sea, surf and lush tropical gardens.
I chose this particular condo because it's quieter than most. Although the many facilities of the Kona Makai complex include a pool, spa, tennis courts, exercise rooms, waterfront barbeque area with chairs, tables and loungers available to you, your condo is nicely positioned away from potential noise.
What's so great about this particular condo is that I live in the area, so if there are any problems, or you have a special request, then I'm here to help - I want to be available so you can have a wonderful vacation here on Big Island.
The condo is furnished in island style, to get you in the mood! You'll find everything you need, so please make it your home while you're here. The unit has all new appliances - a full sized refrigerator, dishwasher and a washer and dryer for your convenience. The complex has WiFi and ample covered parking.
If you don't have transport, you can walk into Kailua Kona (it's about a mile) or to the beaches, or you can also catch a trolley that runs along Ali'i Drive and will take you to the shops, movies and restaurants. In town you'll find many tour companies that will take you to various points of interest on the island.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: I live on a coffee farm in Honaunau, 15 mls south of Kailua-Kona. I moved to Big Island in January 2012 from the Central Coast of California, so I'm still enjoying exploring the island and learning about the culture. Favorite quote: 'Some of the best memories are made in flip flops.' —Kellie Elmore

          Why the Owner Chose Kona Makai:
          This bright, island-style condo in Kona Makai makes me feel as if I'm on vacation as soon as I walk in the door!
