Stan and Trinh purchased this condo in 2015

Why Stan and Trinh chose Kona Coast

Located in the Keauhou Akahi complex, at mile marker 61/2, on Alii drive, south of Kailua-Kona and a short walk to Keauhou Bay. This condo has orientation, elevation and location, many frequent visitors and guests have told us its the best location in the entire complex. Safely located on the second level with very few steps! The elevation allows for the Mauka and Makai winds to cool the property. Parking is close, convenient and well shaded. We have been remodeling and renovating our home at the Akahi with many upgrades including ceiling fans above each sleeping area making the place very comfortable and cool, allowing for restful sleep. Watch for whales during the winter months from our beautiful lanai while enjoying cocktails or meals.

A short 15-20 minute walk will put you on the viewing deck of the Keauhou Sheraton Resort, famed for its Manta Ray viewing. They also have a great Farmers Market and Luau weekly.

Walk down the hill to the Keauhou Bay small boat harbor; its the departure point for the smaller vessels chartered for Dolphin Watch, Deep Sea fishing, Scuba Diving, Sea Quest tours, Fairwinds II and other chartered boating adventures.

This quaint harbor is home to the famed Kona Kayak and Canoe Club where avid Kayak adventurists meet every morning. Within a 20 minute walk you could be standing at the Keauhou Place of Refuge, or the Hawaiian Sacred Grounds.

Within a few miles, or short bicycle ride, you're at Kahaluu Beach Park, considered one of the best and safest snorkel beaches in the entire Hawaiian Island Chain. Also known as "Turtle Beach", and just beyond the coral reef this public beach extends to areas famous for boogie boarding, surfing and stand-up paddle boarding.

What makes this condo unique

Our property is located in one of the most desirable area's of Kailua-Kona. All within short distances to restaurants, shops, historic landmarks, scenic overlooks, golf, world class scuba, healthcare and urgent care facilities, grocery stores and a cine-plex movie theater but away from the more populated tourist areas. Our condominium complex is in a smaller, more intimate and quieter setting with 48 units and 78+ parking spots. The property management is on-site and takes immaculate care of the grounds and pool area. Most guests are frequent visitors and are like family. You will be welcomed with "Akahai" and warm Aloha spirit.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location. Immediately as you walk in you have a beautiful ocean view! Condo is clean and has most everything you need for your stay. Nice cross breezes. Complex is shady and full of flowers and birds. Stan is great to work with; always very prompt to reply. I like the location as it's just 6 miles south of Kona so you are away from the tourist traffic in town yet close enough to drive to town. Shopping very close and one of the best snorkel beaches is 1 and a half mi,es down the road.

Amazing place to stay with family

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the condo late at night. In the morning my wife and I awoke to the shouts of my 10 year old daughter screaming "OMG, look at the view outside". My family of 4 loved this condo as we stayed here 8 nights. It is fully furnished and allowed us to cook a few dinner meals. It was spacious and offered a lot of practical and usable amenities. Small items such as a cooler, snorkel gear, and boogie boards were the real difference maker for us as it allowed us to enjoy our trip without worrying about too much. Stan offered great customer service by promptly replying to all my questions. The property is located in a quiet location a few minutes from a snorkeling area and another small sandy beach and only 10 minutes away from the main town. I would strongly recommend this unit to any family looking to stay in Kona.

Excellent condo in a relaxing and beautiful coastal area south of Kailua-Kona

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a couple or a family with kids on vacation in the beautiful Hawaii´s big island. Located in a very elegant neighborhood, beautiful gardens, and surrounded by a golf club, near the coast and a nice mall, this cozy condo has everything you need to relax. It has a confortable bedroon for a couple with private bathroon, and an extra (nice) bathroon and a living roon with a sofa bed that can accomodate very well another two persons. It has an american type of kitchen (fully equiped) with a balcony separating from the dining room. It also has an spacious deck with a round table, confortable chairs and beautiful view of the golf course and sea. We loved to stayed there by the sunset where we took spetacular pictures. In the deck, there is also a gas-powered barbercue place that was very clean and worked perfectly. You also have washing and drier machine inside the condo, which is very convenient (no need to bring many clothes). In addition, the owner (Stan) has a box on the deck with beach and snorkel gear, which renters can use. So, the condo is very well equiped for staying several days or weeks, and conveniently located close to a mall with grocery store, drugstore, restaurant and gas station, and about 25-30 min driving (south) from Kona International Airport. It is definitely a very good cost-benefit for what it offers. Finally, the owner Stan was very friendly and helpful, answering promptly our questions and providing several suggestions of tours in the island. If I ever return to Hawaii, I will probably rent this place again.

Great Family Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this condo for our family holiday. It was perfect for my husband, myself and our 4 year old daughter. We had plenty of room for all of us and it was a huge bonus having that second bathroom. The condo owners were AMAZING to deal with. I cannot say enough good things about Stan. He was very caring and wanted to be sure our stay was just what we wanted. Having the washer and dryer was a huge bonus for us. The condo was well stocked and well taken care of. The condo cooled off very nicely in the evening which made it great for sleeping. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Bryna, Delighted to know you had a good time at our place on the Big island. We will keep you posted on the newest upgrades and remodeling (soon to be completed.) You will also be on our preferred guest list for future bookings and additional benefits. We want to make it affordable and safe for families with children and of course, we could not do this without the help of the on-site property management team and our cleaning people. Again, thank you for the great review and have safe travels! Sincerely, Stan & Trinh

Stunning beaches, pristine coastal views, lush tropical forests, culture and entertainment, world class golf courses, deep sea fishing charters, activities and local events every week, this destination is one of the best kept secrets for all types of get-aways.

The Big Island is different from other Hawaiian Islands.

All of the Islands are beautiful but the Big Island is.... BIG and beautiful! You won't feel like your on an island. On the other islands, many travelers feel trapped, with limited space, heavy traffic, and stuck on an island in the middle of the ocean. Other island destinations have limited land, are being over developed and travelers are paying a premium.

Life is much different on the Big Island of Hawaii. Much more relaxed, less cars, less crowds, more natural areas and economic diversity. On the Big Island, we feel a sense of grandeur and you can experience the vast untouched, natural beauty of Hawaii, without the crowds.

In Keauhou, It's easy to get away from the crowds, discover a secluded beach and go hiking the hundreds of miles of trails. Its a great place to get out and explore and find a favorite little bistro or a coffee house in "coffee country".

The locals on the Big Island embrace the Aloha Spirit and welcome visitors as family. This area is rich with tradition and culture, without the tourist traps.

The ecology and environments of the Big Island is the most diverse on the planet, boasting a total of five different bio-zones. Beaches with untouched coral reefs, tropical rain forests, lava fields frozen in time, jungles, caves, white and black sand beaches, snow capped mountains, pine forests, vast untouched grasslands, wildlife and secluded valleys, oceans abundant with life wherever you look... too much to see in just one visit.

Hint: Buy a copy of, "Hawaii, The Big Island-Revealed-The Ultimate Guide", by Andrew Doughty. Or when you get to our condo, browse the copy on the bookshelf.

Kailua-Kona is the perfect get-away for a romantic escape, a family vacation, the adventure seekers paradise, or for "Snow-birds", .. it's all here and its comfortable, relaxing, clean and well kept.

Our place is the "Lani Moku Hale", translated: (Heavenly Island House) just above Keauhou Bay. Its the perfect year round destination for quality time spent in paradise. If you love the ocean and enjoy snorkeling as much as we do, you'll be able to swim with dolphins, sea turtles or night dive with giant manta rays.

Don't forget to spend time at one of the many Farmer's Markets to experience the fresh tropical fruits, local gourmet baked goods, artisans and local culture. Of course, just about anywhere you go for seafood is awesome. The cultural diversity of the Islands brings together a blend of Polynesian, Asian, Tahitian, Portuguese, Spanish and other Western influences.

Come and visit our place in paradise; relax and enjoy! You'll be glad you did.
