Stan and Trinh purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Stan and Trinh chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
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

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.

As many people have mentioned, Stan is very through, prompt and reliable as a vacation rental owner. He also gave us extra information such as the nearest grocery shop. His condo manager showed up with a brand new rice cooker and a sponge! We really appreciated all the beach gears including parasols and snorkeling stuff. The bed was comfortable, and fans did a good job to keep the place cool at night. It was a perfect size for two adults and one child. Neighbors were quiet.
Don’t be surprised at a natural alarm clock...birds sing loudly there!
Glad you and your family had a good time. We want our guests to have a memorable, relaxed and comfortable experience when they stay at our home in Keauhou. Yes, the song birds are very enthusiastic in the mornings. The tress and shaded areas around the condo are a natural nesting area and they greet guests as the sun rises.
Communication with Stan was excellent and he called me even before we arrived and sent us precise instructions. House was exactly as described. Kitchen utensils were sufficient for us even to cook. Very friendly neighbors. One night we ran into a small plumbing emergency and local property manager Tom immediately responded and arranged a plumber first thing next morning. A short distance to beach. Overall we were very satisfied with the stay.
We are glad to hear you had a good time at our condo on the Big Island. We are happy to share this special place we often call our home-away-from-home. As always, we will be available and respond to the needs of our guests. Keauhou is a very unique and beautiful place; of all the locations on all the islands, it truly is hard to beat. Again, thank you for the honest review and hope you will have another opportunity to visit us on the Big Island!
Great view of the ocean and palm trees. Great location. Easy access to downtown via shuttle. Easy walk to the shopping center. Many nice birds. The manager keeps the place clean.
All in all, very good.
Very nice condo
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.
We are delighted that you had great time on the Big Island. So much to do and see its hard to get it done in a week or two. Stay in touch, we have many guests who come back every year. Of course we offer them the best value and preferred booking status. Glad that we were able to share our home in paradise with you and your family.
Stan & Trinh
Stan's place was perfect for our family. The children enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the big lanai with BBQ, the place was perfect to explore the island. Also Stan was very helpful and always answered quickly.
Amazing place to stay with family
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.
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.
