About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This is one of the nicest 2 bedroom condos in Kona Shores. It is completely renovated and redecorated. It has complete tiled floors including the lanais, granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom and new cabinetry. The windows and sliding doors are dual pane glass. The top of the line furniture and beds will be a welcome treat from what you normally see in other condos. There are flat screen TVs in the living room and one bedroom and there are 2 sliding doors going out to the quiet, private lanai. Don't be fooled by some of the other units in the complex! Please take the time to read all the 5 star guest reviews on our unit. The unit has a shower stall only, so it is not suitable for infants and toddlers. We want our unit to be very nice because this will be our home away from home whenever we can escape to the Big Island for some rest and relaxation...

The unit is a ground level, small 2 bedroom, 1 bath condominium in a low rise complex located one mile south of downtown Kailua-Kona. Even if you don't need the second bedroom it is a nice room to read or take an afternoon nap, and we have priced our unit to provide affordable vacation accommodations. Both bedrooms have new sliding doors to the patio/lanai and both bedrooms have quality, queen size beds. The lanai has brand new tile and patio furniture and is a great place to enjoy dinner after a busy vacation day at the beach or sightseeing!! Relax and watch a movie on the new flat screen TV in the living room. We provide free wireless internet (bring your laptop or tablet), but bring your cell phone as there is no phone in the unit. The updated kitchen is well equipped and has brand new stainless appliances. An assigned parking space is only about 30 feet from the front door. There is always plenty of toilet paper, paper towels and supplies for you convenience. Beach towels, coolers and lawn chairs are also provided for your beach days.

The Kona Shores is an ocean side complex centrally located on Alii Drive which is the oceanfront road that goes to Kailua-Kona. It is a short walk for shopping, dining, people watching or just to go down and have an evening cocktail. The Big Island has just about everything you could ask for...Great Beaches...Deep-Sea Active Volcano and Much, Much More!

We hope you enjoy your vacation at our condo and we know that each day will bring you a new and wonderful experience on the Big Island of Hawaii. Be sure to explore all that the island offers!

About Doug

We bought this condo in January 2010 in a small 80 unit complex. We have been visiting Hawaii for over 30 years, but only discovered the Big Island 8 years ago. We have not been back to Maui or O'ahu since we fell in love with the Big Island. The friendly attitude of the people (both local and tourists) make this a great place to visit. We are both retired and are looking forward to spending time at our new place with the kids and grandchildren. Doug & Evie

Doug purchased this condo in 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our visit to the Big Island was wonderful. We stayed in Hilo for 5 days and in Kona at your place for 5 days. We enjoyed your condo very much. My mother, who is a chef, especially appreciated the updated kitchen and appliances available. The place was very clean and we appreciated the little details you provided, like the books on things to do, beach towels/chairs, ironing board etc...."

  • 3 of 5

Clean unit, easy parking & access. Owner quickly replied to questions/concerns. Unlike pool photo advertised the recent island-wide VOG from Kilauea eruption unfortunately obstructs ocean view & sunrise/sunsets reason for 3 stars. Hopeful volcano's activity will ease and end soon! Positives: Great AC, comfy couches, full size refrigerator, kitchen supplied cooking spices-sealed tupperware-ziploc bags, two separate bedrooms w dressers & ceiling fan & bedside table lamps, large bedroom closets w shelves & hangers, pillows aplenty, laundry basket & laundry soap, extra bath towels-tissue-paper towels, large shower w extra body wash & shampoo, beach towels and beach chairs, patio water hose, quiet area, copy of Andrew Doughty's Big Island Revealed Guidebook. Negatives: soft mattress, thin wall in bathroom to adjoining unit, and VOG.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing the review. You seemed to like our unit very much, however giving us a 3 star review because of the VOG created from the volcano seems unfair. We obviously have no control over the weather and related natural events. Practically all of our reviews are 5 stars with the exception of a few 4 stars. If there a a way for you to re-rate the review with VRBO, it would be appreciated. Thanks again for staying in our unit. Doug

Great condo, great price

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd stay in Kona. Absolutely loved the condo. Great location just outside of the main part of town, dedicated parking by the unit. Very quiet, hardly any Coqui frogs (if they bother you). Unit was clean and well stocked. You can tell previous renters left things for the next guests (we left sunblock and an unopened jar of salsa ;) ) AC in the unit (which was nice, it was pretty muggy out this time around). There's a lot of restaurants, bars, shopping and beach/water access points nearby. Saw dolphins from the pool area; turtles, fish and other sealife from the rocks. Wear sturdy shoes if you go to the rocky "beach" it's a fun little trek out on the rocks. We would consider long term rental at this location in the future if available. A serious bonus was the owner extended our check out time due to our late flight, so we didn't have to find a place to hang out with the kids for 8 hours. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Fantastic addition to our trip!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip, and our stay at Kona Shores was second to none! Doug was exceptional to deal with, and made our stay very enjoyable. All questions, concerns, or inquiries were all dealt with immediately and professionally!

The suite was perfect!

Very clean and well kept, along with being well stocked and supplied. We will definatly stay here again!!

Thanks again Doug! after long days out exploring this place was perfect to come back too! also only 10-15 min walk from town makes it that much better!

Very Nice Condo - Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 6 nights here and enjoyed our stay very much. Despite the square footage the layout is very functional. Kitchen had everything we needed. WiFi and Cable were good, Pool area was nice with a nice ocean view. Good location outside the main traffic craziness. Owner Doug was very helpful.

The only negative, and I didn't deduct a star because it's out of the Owner's control, is don't expect to take a mid-day nap or sleep in during the week much past 6am. The people above the unit are very loud (doors closing, heavy walking, etc) which can be heard from inside the unit.

If I had any reason to return to Kona I would plan to stay here again.

A home away from home !!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation condo. We spent 3 weeks in Kona The location was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the common area in the shade reading and enjoying the landscape which welcomed us - the ocean, watching the whales and the spinner dolphins and the sunsets. It is close enough to town to enjoy a leisurely walk to eating places and shopping. We even got to experience the Kona Stroll.

The condo was clean and included some very essential items which we didn't have to purchase

We have already recommended the condo to some friends and on our next trip to the Big Island we will certainly return to this condo.

Doug was very easy to work with . Thanks again for sharing your property with us.

Great location, comfy and clean

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here for five days, two young boys. The place was great - clean, comfortable, everything was provided (beach toys, chairs,towels). The pool overlooking the ocean was gorgeous. The lanai was nice, but is enclosed so no views but it is very private. The owners were very accommodating and great to deal with.
