This beautiful, one bedroom condominium (700 square feet) is located in building #2 at Kona Makai, a gated condominium complex consisting of 100 units on the sunny Kona coast of the 'Big Island' of Hawaii.
It lacks nothing! The view from the lanai is simply gorgeous and it never gets old watching the Spinner Dolphins frolic in front of the condo.
The condo overlooks the Kona Makai common grounds including pool, Jacuzzi, and gas barbecue grills. The lanai has comfortable plush furniture, so you can relax and watch the cruise ships enter the Kona harbor or watch the dolphins and whales swim offshore, or or just enjoy your morning coffee in peace and quiet. In the afternoon the colorful parasailors are in the area. You may want to give this a try, or use the furnished snorkel gear and snorkel right off of the Kona Makai shoreline. There is so much to enjoy without even having to leave the complex.
All rooms, including the lanai, have Italian tiled floors and ceiling fans. If there is no breeze on the lanai, simply turn on the fan and make your own!
The unit has everything and more! It is tastefully decorated in a light motif, with accent walls, that anyone will enjoy and is continuously updated. Although the unit is air conditioned, a fresh breeze blows through from the bedroom through the open sliding glass doors rarely making the AC necessary. It is located on the second floor, and there is no car traffic in this part of the complex.
This is one of the best equipped condominiums that you will ever find. You do not need to worry about anything. It has plenty of linens and bath towels, beach chairs and beach towels, mens golf clubs, a completely furnished kitchen with new or close to new appliances. The Maytag washer and drier are the best we could find and we even furnish laundry and dishwasher detergent. We also have microwave, dishwasher, disposer, under-counter lighting, stereo, DVD/VHS player, new LCD flat-screen television, and the most comfortable king sized bed you will ever sleep in. We also furnish a nice selection of Hawaiian music CD's and guide books as well as books on Hawaiian culture and history to help you fall asleep.
Kona Makai is a quiet complex, gated for security, and conveniently located 1 mile South of Kailua town on beautiful Alii Drive within easy walking distance to town. The grounds are simply breath taking; the view is indescribable and the colorful gardens are full of every kind of Hawaiian plant one can imagine.
A reviewer for a national travel magazine awarded it 5 stars (out of 5) and described it this way: Kona Makai: the best kept secret in Kona! My wife and I have stayed at the Kona Makai condominiums many times and just love the ocean views and the gorgeous grounds. The guests gather by the pool each evening to watch the gorgeous sunsets. We stayed in building 2, (our building) which is said by the full-time residents to be the best. Such a bargain for Kona!

About the owner: Susie and I live in TX when not at Kona Makai. We manage our condo personally so you are not dealing with a rental agent. We have fantastic customers and most of them have rented from us multiple times.
Why the Owner Chose Kona Makai: We fell in love with Kona Makai the moment we saw the beautiful grounds. The view we have from our lanai, and the peace and quiet of Kona Makai are simply unbeatable.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We love having our morning coffee on the lanai and watching the Spinnner Dolphins put on a show for us.
During the afternoon we see the colorful parasails and the tour boats, many who snorkel right off shore from Kona Makai, and we do all of that without having to move an inch.
At night, we cook on the gas grills down by the shoreline and then watch the sunset while dining on our lanai. Kona Makai has exclusive beauty everywhere you look; it just cannot be topped, and the rental price is extremely reasonable.
