jennifer moore purchased this House in 2012
Why jennifer moore chose Kahaluu Bay
The old adage: location, location, location is never more appropriate than here at Kona Onenalo. Each house has a direct ocean view and the breaking waves are only feet away. An ocean gate opens directly onto La'Aloa Bay, one of the premier snorkeling and scuba diving venues on the Kona coast. White Sands beach is 300 yards from our front door. The ocean front pool and spa offer panoramic vistas and sunsets. The property itself is meticulously maintained with lush tropical landscaping. And all of this is set in the middle of the greater Kailua-Kona area, a community filled with restaurants, shopping and many other resort amenities.
What makes this House unique
Kona Onenalo is a walled and gated community. All of the owners are mainland based and it is rare for more than 3 or 4 homes to be occupied at any given time. One of the things that we treasure about our place is that it is always peaceful, quiet and private. Alii Drive itself has a unique character. As it winds along the shoreline from the town of Kailua-Kona to the Keahou Resort 6 miles to the south, it passes several wonderful little sandy beaches as well as four favorite local surfing locations. Residents walk, jog and bike this 6 mile stretch of road at all times of the day. Kona Onenalo is the perfect combination of a private retreat set amid the hustle and bustle of a larger community.

The location is unbeatable. The condo is very large and the view is great. Snorkeling right off the rocks. The condo itself is relatively old and needs updating. There is AC, although since there is no attic insulation the top floor gets quite hot in the summer. Winter would not be an issue
A lovely stay in a lovely house within walking distance to the ocean.
We had a great experience! We are two families with kids between 7 and 10. The property was stocked with beach amenities and the kitchen was stocked for many meals at home. The pool at the complex was a perfect place to end each day.
Thanks Caroline. So happy to hear you and the family enjoyed your vacation!
The view from the house and Lanai was really special with the rolling waves coming in and the big sky. The house had everything you'd want. The boogie boards and snorkel gear were a plus. There was even an ice chest we could use. We snorkeled many times in the small bay just outside of the property. The rocky beach is accessed at the end of the rock wall of the property between the house and White Sands Beach. The sound from the road was not bad at all. The master bedroom upstairs has a great view from the bed and the sound of the ocean was awesome. The downside is that this room is so big that it was hard to cool down on the hottest nights. On most nights, we would leave the window open and the breeze would keep the room cool. We had seven people staying in the house and the bedrooms are really only big enough to hold 6. Our seventh person had to sleep on an airbed in the dining room. Overall, this was an excellent vacation location and we would definitely love to come back again.
Beautiful Home on Water w everything you need
Definitely one of the best locations and homes. Great access to epic snorkeling right off the house. Easy, clean, will be returning! Everything you need is there. Stunning views.
Thank you Nichole. So glad you had a good time and were able to take advantage of the snorkelling!
Everything was just perfect
We felt like at home, that's what we really needed. Thank you, Jennifer, for having us.
Great location, we would definitely come back again
