About the property

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

This is one of the nicest 2 bedroom condos in Kona Shores. It is completely renovated and redecorated. It has completely 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 change 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 that go 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 are 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 bathroom condominium in a low rise (2 story) complex located one mile south of downtown Kailua-Kona. A very easy walk takes you to all the activities. Even if you don't need 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 queen size beds and an conditioner in the larger bedroom. The lanai has patio furniture and is a great place to enjoy dinner after a busy vacation day at the beach or sightseeing!!Relax and watch the new 40' 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. There is also an AC unit in the living room.

The updated kitchen is well equipped with brand new appliances and everything you should need to cook. 4 ceiling fans appoint the condo..An assigned parking space is only 30 feet from the front door. Beach towels, coolers and lawn chairs are also provided for your beach days. The complex pool is AWESOME!!!

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 and have an evening cocktail. The Big Island has just about everything you could ask for...Great Beaches...Golfing...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 May 2010 in a small 80 unit complex. We also own the unit next door which we purchased in January 2010. We bought both units for us to use and to have as vacation rentals. We wanted to appoint them very nice as they will be our homes away from home when we escape to the Big Island for some rest and relaxation. 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

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is an e-mail sent by the guest:

"Your condo was amazing and was one of the highlights of our trip. The location was easy to get to and extremely close to Coconut Grove and walking distance to the Royal Kona Resort Luau. Btw, we were very surprised in how well stocked the place was: appliances, towels, beach chairs, umbrella, etc. I will definitely recommend your location on Flipkey! Definitely underrated!

Thank You

Great unit close to downtown Kona.

  • 4 of 5

This two-bedroom condo was very, very clean and very well appointed from the kitchen to beach toys. Both the bathroom and kitchen look recently remodeled, all in tile and granite.

The unit is on the smaller side, but in Hawaii who cares because you're outside most of the time. The swimming pool in the picture is a lovely hang-out spot when not at the beach. Kona Shores is in a very busy area, so be prepared for the traffic on A'lii Drive, but the condo is situated well off the street and quiet. And the best coffee in Kona is a few hundred feet away. Coming out of Kona Shores, take a left. Green Flash coffee is at the next driveway (they also serve smoothies and breakfast & lunch sandwiches). This unit is by far one of the best deals for the money in Kona, and Doug was very helpful.

Well furnished, peaceful, and well kept

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent a very pleasant week at this well kept and quite pretty unit, which came with a fully equipped and well stocked kitchen and two large bedrooms. Seldom needed the A/C due to cross ventilation, and the lack of noise at night allowed us to keep the windows open to the breeze. Great neighbors and a very attentive owner. A little far to walk into downtown, but plenty of local walking was available, and two farmers' market are closeby. A really nice play to stay.

Great property - Great location!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this place is beautiful. Very well laid out. Nicely maintained. Love the shower! We stayed for eight days and found it very comfortable and relaxing.

It's an easy 3/4 mile walk to the restaurants, shops, and shows. We walked to the Luau at Royal Kona as well as the restaurants almost every day. There's a nice little beach just a couple blocks away to watch the sunset as well.

Overall, this place was a great value for a great location. We would definitely rent again!

Great condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nicely maintained condo in a perfect location -- close to beach, snorkeling, restaurants and shopping. It was clean, with very comfortable furnitures and the kitchen came with everything we could've wanted. Questions are answered very quickly by the host. Would definitely return here and only can recommend this place to everyone who is visiting the Big Island!

Everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect unit for my husband, myself and grown daughter. It would also work well for two couples, provided you don't mind sharing the bathroom. Everything was clean and in good repair. Kitchen & bathroom were fully stocked. We especially appreciated all the sunscreen available for use! The pool was nice and you can't beat the view from there. No view from the lanai, but it's still a nice place to sit & have a meal or read. A/C was adequate to keep both bedrooms comfortable overnight, though one room doesn't have it's own unit. We had no hot water one morning, but it was promptly attended to and fixed by mid-day. You could hear voices and footsteps from the tenants above, but they were respectful about the post 10PM quiet time for the most part. The complex as a whole is very laid back.

The location is convenient. If you like to walk, it's an easy stroll to lots of restaurants in town. Doug was easy to deal with, and returned our deposit promptly. For the money, this is an excellent value and I wouldn't hesitate to return.
