Breathtaking oceanfront view (a stone's throw from the water) from the most desirable condo building in the heart of Kailua-Kona. This third floor (#306) 1 bedroom 2 bath corner unit is beautiful in every detail. We bought this remodeled condo in 2017 and have since made substantial upgrades, most recently new stainless kitchen appliances. From the granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms to the beautiful tile flooring to the teak table and chairs on the lanai, this unit really shines. In both directions there are countless shops, delightful restaurants, bars with live music, a farmers market, historical sites, beaches, and more, all within walking distance of this beautiful condo. From your lanai you can watch tourists walking by as they explore the town, canoe clubs practicing at sunset, cruise ships when they are in town, spinner dolphins in the bay most mornings, humpback whales in the winter, yellow tangs in the water, and athletes competing in the world famous Iron Man Triathlon in October, all without ever leaving your condo. The common area includes a large, well-maintained swimming pool and barbecue. The condo comes with a free assigned parking space, as opposed to a parking fee of $18 per day at one of the big hotels in town.
Please note that because the condo is among restaurants and shops, you will hear pedestrians and vehicles through dinner time. Kailua-Kona is a sleepy town, though, and it usually gets quiet after 8:00 PM on weekdays and 10:00 PM on weekends. Also please note that like most condos in the Kona Alii building, this unit does not have air conditioning. Some Kona Alii condos do. We do fine in the winter and summer with the usual sea breeze blowing through the condo, ceiling fans in the bedroom and dining room, and two movable floor fans.
As you may know, there was recently a major lava flow below Mt. Kilauea. The eruption abruptly ended in August and air quality is currently the best in over 30 years. The Hawaii Volcano Park recently re-opened. No new eruption is expected in the near future. Now is a great time to book a trip to Hawaii!
