About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6), Wi/Fi, Best Partial Ocean View

This SPACIOUS 2 BR 2 BA corner Condo is the largest at Kona Shores (1,000 sq ft of living space) and the only 2 BR 2 BA unit at this facility; it is referred to as "the Penthouse of Kona Shores" by long-term residents. This CORNER Condo has a good partial OCEAN VIEW (best at Kona Shores) from the living room and deck. It is in the most private section of the complex. Open the front door to a hardwood entry hall, then after passing the kitchen, step-down 5" to a living room surrounded by glass; look out to palms and gardens to the North--and the ocean and more landscaping to the West.
The living room has sliding glass doors to north and west portions of a 400 sq ft WRAP-AROUND LANAI. Enjoy eating and relaxing at the confluence of north and west decks--and taking in the views including tops of Golden-fruited palms complete with green day geckos. On the north lanai there is a shelver with swimming and snorkeling supplies, ice chest(s), and sometimes boogie boards. There are 3 wall air conditioners: one in the living room near the kitchen; one in the MA Bedroom; and one in the 2nd Bedroom.
In the MASTER BEDROOM you will find a King-size bed, 1 "Queen" wicker chair, one lounger chair, a chest of drawers, Hawaiian decorations and a glass slider and windows to the North landscaping, which drops off 30 feet to the back of a parking lot of the complex next door--no buildings interfering with your privacy in this bedroom! The Master Bath has a jacuzzi tub, make-up table and a large double closet. The SECOND BEDROOM is at the opposite end of the unit from the MaBR. It has two twin beds, a chest of drawers, and a glass slider-door onto the covered West deck (lanai). Clamps and linens are provided in the closet to convert the twin beds into a king-size bed. This bedroom is entered via a small foyer near the main door. At one end of the BR is a door to a FULL BATH having sink, high shelf-stacker for linens, and a tub-shower. The double-closet fills most of one wall.
A KITCHEN RE-MODEL was completed in June 2015, including NEW cabinets, GRANITE counter-tops, and new flooring. Inside the kitchen are a new refrigerator, a gas stove, a utility closet, and extra storage space at the entry end. A coffee-maker, microwave, 4 slice-toaster, and all dishes, pots and pans, and cooking and serving implements are provided. An eating bar is shared with the living room

There are small step-downs when entering the living room and the foyer to the 2nd Bedroom. ADDITIONAL SLEEPING is in the living room with a sofa-bed. Linens are provided in the MaBR closet or in 2nd BR closet. Eating outside with private views of tops of golden-fruited palms complete with green day geckos is pleasant and relaxful. This condo is a top floor (second floor) unit--no noise above you! Two ASSIGNED PARKING SPOTS are in a secluded section of the grounds directly down 1 1/2 stories. The commercial-style laundry is down-stairs on the way to your car.
The BBQ area and fantastic ocean-side POOL are on the Western border of the property; the pool is perhaps the best for SWIMMING (big enough) and VIEWS (waves breaking and great Sunsets) along all of Allii Dr. The Condo is at Kona Shores, which is 1 miles south of Kailua village (and immediately south of a larger complex, Sea Village) on the OCEAN-SIDE of Alii Drive. It is in the northwest corner of the facility--furthest from the road and nearest the ocean. The address is 75-6008 Alii Dr., Kailua-Kona, HI 96740.

Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking in unit or in Lanais.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Ginny is now a retired Nurse, having practiced in several specialties and taught Nursing at the College level for many years; 20 yrs at San Jose State Univ. (Professor) and Sonoma State Univ. She loves out-doors, back-packing, swimming, and since our Honeymoon (photo) snorkeling. Glen is a retired business executive of Pharmaceutical and more recently Biotechnology companies. He has a pharmacy degree and an MBA. Growing up he participated in several sports and later focused on water-skiing, snorkeling, and back-packing. Both of us were born in California--she in Oakland, he in Santa Cruz. We both attended college at UC Berkeley and UCSF. Glen got his MBA at Harvard. Our most favorite vacations are to Ginny's family cabin in Yosemite and our Hawaii properties. We live in a house that we completed building in 2000 on Glen's family mountain-top property in Soquel (Santa Cruz), CA

Why the Owner Chose Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
Over the years Glen traveled to Hawaii many times, mainly Oahu, Maui, and Kauai. Ginny and Glen went to several Hawaii islands on their Honeymoon in 1985. (Picture is at Kona Village) We have owned a time-share in Waikiki, a lovely condo at Poipu Beach in Kauai, and several vacation and long-term condos on the Big Island. Our favorite place to visit became Hawaii for the sports (e.g. snorkeling), sites all over the island, variety of scenery, birds, and the fact that this island is not yet ruined by Tourism and population. We now own properties only in KONA.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We stayed at Kona Shores annually since 1985 (now over 30 years). We loved the PRIVACY of the North wing of this complex. In 1998 the lovely northwest, first floor, corner unit became available. Glen had seen it while helping a renter fix screens. We were lucky enough to buy this unit. Of course, every one in the mainly long-term renter/owner units was envious about the large corner unit directly above our 1 BR. A year later it became for sale at about $50,000 below previous asking prices. Again, we were lucky enough to purchase this unit. We love the open, spacious, above it all, good partial ocean view impact of the unit and the very private location within the complex. (This unit was built by the original contractor for Kona Shores for himself; he also built the special corner unit below, reportedly for one of his relatives.)
