About Owner/Manager

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, 2017. 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 Kona Coast

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a perfect fit for us as we needed a 2 bedroom place close to downtown Kona we had a large group of 4 adult and 4 kids every one had a place to sleep. We didn’t spend a lot of time in the condo its Hawaii the location allowed every one to have many options, use the pool on site, walk to a beach, shop in town, or load into the car and explore the Big Island. The owners were very helpful and have a nice unit would love to stay again.

Great home base for exploring the Big Island!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Lovely Condo; Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

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.

Great location, near the markets and beaches, very quiet.

  • 4 of 5

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.

The condominium's location is it's claim to fame....Joy

A real vacation

  • 4 of 5

The condo is great, ocean view but not the beach as stated. Also, there are 32 steps to the front door (plus another 14 to the loft) so be in shape! Everything else was just as advertised.

Great condo & location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here in Kona. There was plenty of room for 3 adults to sleep and enjoy hanging out in the condo during the day. The location is amazing for close walking to all the great shops & Iron man beach in Kona.

Owner's Response: Would love to have you stay with us in the future. Your expression of confidence through your kind words is much appreciated. If the condominium had a middle name I'm sure would be "conveniently located." All the best and wishing you every success in 2017.....Joy
