About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 2

This over the top deluxe studio condo is the perfect place to spend a luxurious, relaxing vacation right on the ocean's edge! Literally 20 feet from the ocean, you cannot beat the view from the lanai or inside the unit. . . perfect for lounging, dining, reading or cooking wonderful meals in the full size gourmet kitchen! You probably won't even want to leave the condo! (But you should ) All the comforts of home (plus maybe even more), but you're in Hawaii, enjoying the fabulous weather, sights, smells and sounds, in complete luxury. Beautiful stone flooring throughout. high end granite, teak paneling throughout, bamboo ceiling and teak/bamboo cabinets create an elegant interior. The sliding glass doors completely open up to allow the lanai to become part of the interior. .fabulous! The condo is an end unit on the 2nd floor of the desirable north end of the oceanfront building, so you can't get closer to the ocean than this unit without getting wet! This oceanfront condominium not only boasts first-class views, but has excellent proximity to Kona town and all activities as well.

Watch world class surfers ride the waves at Banyan's while dolphins frolic in their wake. Enjoy seasonal whale watching right from your lanai and get a close up view of the giant sea turtles that feed in the tide pools right in front and also come up on shore to sun themselves! (No touching though!)

This private condo has everything you need for an unforgettable Hawaiian experience.

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 12 days in this little piece of paradise. We fell asleep each night to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks (when they say oceanfront, it doesn't get much closer) and woke up with the sun and the birds and our coffee on lanai. Being an end unit on the 2nd floor, the lanai is super private and has the most beautiful panoramic view.

Holly made sure everything was ready for us when we arrived and was super attentive and accommodating regarding anything we needed.

The condo is nicely updated, had everything we needed, and was very clean. The only problem we ran into was the lack of space for our luggage. We stayed two weeks, and admittedly overpacked, but because it is a studio, there is limited space for baggage.

The complex is quiet, well kept and clean, and the staff is very friendly. The location is great because it's close enough to town to walk if you want to (about 2 miles), but away from the populated tourist areas. We walked in to town on a couple different occasions and found it quite enjoyable. There are also great little tidepools and coves right off the property where the sea turtles would frequent both in the water and up on the beach.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience for our stay here.

Nothing but fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Holly's rental was nothing but fabulous! What a wonderful host she was! The location was perfect. Very easy to find. Right on the water. Dream of a lifetime! We were in Hawaii for almost 3 weeks and our week at Holly's was by far the best! It was well-stocked. We did not want for anything. The only thing we had to buy was our food. What a blessing that was! Going to sleep with the sounds of the waves, the smell of the ocean and a nice comfy bed... slept like a rock! Gorgeous sunsets right from our balcony.... Waking up to the sights and sounds of the ocean.... Wonderful church service right next door. Nice time in the pool and hot tub as well. I just can't say enough. Would give 10 stars if I could!!! We plan to stay there again next time we visit Hawaii.

This is the closest you could be to the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property! Right on the ocean! The balcony almost opens on the ocean! You hear the waves whole night long!!

The place was clean and was well maintained - easy free parking. Drive 10 minutes north and you are in the hub with shopping and restaurants. Holly provided details to the dot and was accurate. Would go back again!

Beautiful Condo, Beautiful Oceanfront

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here, it was hard to leave. We stayed 8 nights and found everything we needed here. Condo is well equipped; all we needed to buy was food. There are beautiful tide pools and a beach for surfing or boogie boarding. We bbq'd and cooked meals alot in the well equipped kitchen. Saw turtles out front every day. We hope to return soon!
