Joy and Larry Kleefeld: Owning a piece of paradise in Hawaii has been a lifelong dream of ours and we are very happy to share our vacation home with you on your next Hawaiian vacation. We have 6 children, and 7 grandchildren. Joy is involved with patient care at a local hospital. Larry is a chiropractor, looking at retirement on September 15, 2018. We are hoping to spend a good part of the year in Kona after retirement. We enjoy spending time with each other, family and friends, and our avid cyclists and snow sport enthusiasts.
Owner/Manager purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Owner/Manager chose Historic Kailua Village
For us Hawaii is a very special place. With the ocean, spectacular sunsets from the lanai, sightseeing and water activities including snorkeling, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing, Kona is an easy choice.
What makes this Condo unique
We chose Kailua-Kona with its unique weather, dry climate, beaches and recreation including scuba diving, snorkeling, boogie boarding and surfing. It is well known for the Iron Man Triathlon.
Pool / Spa

Perfect location, wonderful home!
We loved this condo! It was decorated so warm and cozy; so many personal touches throughout the home.(love the hula girl lamp!) It was very clean and well supplied with everything you need. We also met the cleaning lady who lives on the grounds and said to get in touch with her should we need anything.
We will definitely return!
So happy the condominium met your expectations. Sounds like you had a great time on Island and we are looking forward to having you stay with us in the future.

This is a very well situated condo with easy access to restaurants and
entertainment. I gave it 4 stars because the upstairs bedroom needs another air conditioner.
The best way to get relief upstairs is to open the upstairs window and aim the fan up the stairway after sunset.
It is well equipped for cooking and we had no problems using the shared gas grills on site. Overall a good experience
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The upstairs bedroom can get warm. As you are aware we are in the process of remodeling, in addition to the new cabinets and granite countertop's we will be addressing the issue of an upstairs bedroom which can get quite warm. Hope to see you again. And thank you for your comments. Joy and Larry
Great home base for exploring the Big Island!
Thank you for letting us enjoy your home! We were visiting with our daughter, son in-law and two grandchildren (2 and 9). The home was incredibly comfortable and served us well for our visit. It is an easy walk to Ali'i Drive and everything it has to offer as well as grocery stores and the Kona Brewery. The "Baby Beach" next to the pier was perfect for our toddler and a very short walk. The condo has everything you would need for the beach and we made great use of the boogie boards at Magic Sands Beach, a short 5 minute drive away. The pop-up canopy was a lifesaver for the intense sun! We toured the entire island and nothing was more than two hours away (Volcano, Hilo, Hawi, etc.) We made great use of the kitchen as well as the grills down by the pool. We only swam in the pool once as the ocean is almost as close! We cannot recommend this property highly enough and would definitely stay again if we have the opportunity to return to the island!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It so well crafted I'm thinking about booking the condo myself. All the best.... Joy
Comfortable and convenient
This place was a perfect jumping off point for us. If you're looking for shops and restaurants within walking distance, this is a great place. We also had a rental car so we used this as home base, but took many day trips to other parts of the island for hiking and swimming.
Convenient location is this condominiums calling card. Thank you for taking the opportunity of providing a review and your kind remarks. Would love to have his stay again. Wishing you safe travels. Joy
Lovely Condo; Fabulous Location
We enjoyed our stay here very much. The location was ideal for us because it allowed us to walk to Ali'i Drive and not to have to battle it out for parking (or pay to park). Also, since we only rented one car, it allowed our family to split up if we wanted to. If one of us wanted to just hang out and shop or get lunch, while the rest of us wanted to go off and explore the island, that was no problem at all.
The condo itself had a nice layout and view. There was plenty of room for our family, and the unit had just about everything we needed (we did have to buy a few things to stock it, such as hangers, plastic wrap and bags, reusable plastic containers, garbage bags, and dishwasher and laundry detergent--even a small family is going to need to wash more than 3 loads of dishes in 10 days). I would add, also, that the master bedroom upstairs is open to the living area below. This wasn't clear from the description and photos of the unit. It was perfectly fine for us, but it may not be ideal for guests who prefer more privacy.
As for the complex, it was nice, but we did feel a bit like interlopers at the pool. There are a lot of permanent residents in this complex, and we didn't always feel a welcoming vibe when residents were using the pool.
Lastly, pack light! It wasn't fun hauling 250 plus pounds of baggage up all of those flights of stairs. Our situation was a bit unusual, as we were spending a month in the islands and needed to pack accordingly.
Thank you for your thoughtful review. You're taking the time to do so is much appreciated. Sounds like your overall experience was great although 250 pounds luggage and those stairs must have been grueling in the moment. Hope to have you stay with us again.....Joy
Great location, near the markets and beaches, very quiet.
The condo was great. Had all the cooking pans and plates that we needed. The upstairs bedroom was hard to cool but the downstairs was great. Loved the area. We could walk down to the shops during the day and evening. We did lots of grilling by the pool. Would stay here again for sure.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes, the upstairs bedroom can get quite warm in the summer months. Sounds like you had a wonderful time and the condominium suited your needs. Hope to see you in the future and again thank you for your kind words. The condominium's location is it's claim to fame....Joy
