Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 double bath, sleeps 2

This spacious and bright condo (1090 including lanai) is on the second floor of a quiet building overlooking the 9th fairway of the Kona Country Club with the blue Pacific beyond. Tastefully remodeled with built-in oak cabinets throughout, rich Australian acacia flooring, elegant furniture, and original art on the walls. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Large comfortable lanai for outdoor living, with your own gas barbecue grill. Enjoy ocean views from floor-to-ceiling windows in every room -- even from the king-size bed and the double bathroom. Swimming pool shared among only 47 units: you will often have the pool all to yourself. Manicured and fragrant tropical gardens. Easy walk to Keauhou Bay, Sheraton resort, and golf clubhouse. Less than a mile to major shopping center and just a little further to the best snorkeling beach in Kona (Kahalu'u).

Things To Do: Be sure to pick up the free brochures available just about everywhere (airport, shopping areas, hotel lobbies) that describe the many activities you may choose and include valuable discount coupons. They also have extensive listings of restaurants and area maps. Sample titles: Hawaii Gold; This Week Big Island; 101 Things to Do. Another good source of information is the local daily newspaper, West Hawaii Today, available at many locations, including KTA supermarket and Longs drugstore. The Keauhou Shopping Center offers activities in the central court almost every day (music, hula, crafts): check the posted schedule.

Keauhou Canoe Club: See the Island the way the ancient Hawaiians first did: from a double-hulled canoe. The Canoe Club, headquartered on nearby Keauhou Bay (5 min. walk from the condo), promotes the ancient Hawaiian art of paddling. Visitors are welcome on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Two sessions, at 6:30 am and 8:00 am. Show up at the club at least 30 minutes early and members will loan you a paddle, teach you the basics, and take you on a one-hour energetic and magical trip. See the sun rise over Mauna Loa during the early session. Whale viewing in the winter months, spinner dolphins and manta rays all year round.

Aloha Theater in Kainaliu: The Aloha is an old-fashioned theater located in the picturesque village of Kainaliu, just a few miles south of Keauhou on Highway 11. It is home to the Aloha Performing Art Company and regularly presents live shows and musical performances. If a show is on during your stay, don't miss this chance to see good community theater and meet the local residents. A nice cafe is next door, for pre-theater dinner or drinks.

About Eliane Lomax

Started going to Hawaii over 30 years ago, first for work, then for pleasure. After a full career in Washington DC in the non-profit think tank sector, retired to eastern Washington state. We are snowbirds in Kona and also spend time in Lyon, France.

Eliane Lomax purchased this condo in 2008

Why Eliane Lomax chose Kailua-Kona

We knew we wanted to be on the Big Island, and when we first walked through the front door of this condo with our realtor, it was love at first sight. It has everything we wanted: ocean views, bright large rooms, manicured gardens, a friendly community of neighbors who care about each other. Always quiet, and yet close to services, shopping, restaurants, Kailua village.

What makes this condo unique

A unique historical area, with the King's birthplace and the ancient fishing village on the Sheraton grounds. The beautiful Keauhou Bay and access to all water sports. The true 'aloha' of the community of paddlers at the Keauhou Canoe Club. The incredible sunsets. The fragrant trees at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Eliane for your lovely condo. My grand-daughter did great [in the IronMan]. She came in 28th in her age group (25-30). She was hoping to come in 45-46 out of 75. Thanks again and perhaps I can come again!

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very comfortable for my husband and I. One of our favorite things was sitting out on the lanai with the geckos, looking out over the golf course and the ocean beyond, listening to the variety of birds singing. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The owner, Elaine, is very responsive and easy to work with, and so is the on-site property manager.

Charming, quiet and away from the crowds

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we were satisfied with this property. Everyone we met staying in this area were great, the pool was great for laying out. The property is close to a supermarket, drugstore and a couple of restaurants. Safe to run or bike outside of the condo. The condo, overall, was great. Spacious and all of the baking pans/cookware we could need for a week. However, when we walked in, it was not super clean. 30 minutes of cleaning took care of the situation, so not a big deal, but it did feel like we were walking in on someone else staying there. This was our first experience with VRBO and we would stay hear again and try VRBO at a different location again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jami for your review. I am glad you enjoyed our beautiful neighborhood. I apologize for the less than perfect cleaning. Immediately after Christmas, my housekeeper was somewhat rushed and apparently skimped on her usual excellent job. She is now back in full operation mode and looks forward to making the condo sparkle for the upcoming guests.

Wonderfully appointed condominium in a prime location!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is in a marvelous location, with nice sunset views overlooking the Kona Country Club golf course and the ocean. It is wonderfully appointed and really brings a sense of calm and relaxation after a busy day. I will try and rent again on my next trip!

A Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this lovely condo. It is a beautifully furnished and well kept property. We slept like a dream in the comfy bed and enjoyed the lanai every day and evening as well. Having a BBQ right there was a real treat! The condo is equiped with everything we needed.The location is close to many beaches and golf courses. We hope to return one day soon!

Great place to stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo and location. We started our 2 week trip to the Big Island here and it was a perfect jump off point for the rest of our vacation. Relaxing location with an incredible sunset view off the lanai. Clean and spacious residence, with a super comfortable bed and great tub and the washer and dryer were nice to have. The location south of Kona was great central location for us. We went south to the Place of Refuge and 2 Step Beach for snorkeling with spinner dolphins and turtles (about 45 minute drive). We went north to the harbor to go whale watching with mother and calf humpbacks breaching just off our bow (about 30 minute drive). Taxi ride up to Huggo's ran about $25 and took about 15 minutes. Very relaxing location.

Car: recommended

Keauhou is a beautiful residential and resort area just 6 miles south of the picturesque town of Kailua-Kona, with its great shopping and dozens of restaurants. Bordered by the blue Pacific on one side, and the verdant slopes of Mauna Loa on the other, Keauhou is close to all ocean sports and pleasures. Just a few miles upcountry is the world-famous Kona coffee growing area and picturesque 'old Hawai'i' villages such as Holualoa and Kainaliu. Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, the rainforest of the Hamakua Coast, Mauna Kea, Waimea/Kamuela and the ranch country are all easy one-day excursions..

Other Activities: Outrigger canoe paddling

Golf: The Kona Country Club is open to the public. It offers 36 holes, in the Ocean and the Mountain Courses. Green fees vary from $165 (prime time on Ocean course) to $60 (9 holes in the afternoon). The clubhouse is a 5-minute walk from the condo.
