About Khammoui Louangrath

I came to Hawaii from Rapid City, SD in 1994 to teach. I have families in Kansas, South Dakota, Oregon, Washington State, New Mexico, Virginia, North Carolina and Arizona. My husband and I bought this unit because of the closeness to everything and of course, the best oceanfront pool on Alii Drive. We furnished the unit with high end solid wood furnishings for your comfort.

Khammoui Louangrath purchased this condo in 2013

Why Khammoui Louangrath chose Kona Coast

We bought this property because of the pretty partial ocean view from lanai/porch of the unit, Oceanfront Pool and it is right on Alii Drive where You can easily walk to beaches, shopping, all tourist attractions are within 30 minutes away-less if you are a fast walker. The nice partial ocean view from the unit and oceanfront pool makes this the perfect place to spend your time in Hawaii. This complex has a combination of owners living in their units to long term monthly renters to short term vacation rental. You will meet many nice people with many Aloha during your stay. We have guests that keep coming back every year because they have made good friends here. The only thing we would change with this condo is the exterior brown trim on the building because it makes the building looks dated. The paint are less than ten years old and will not change for awhile. I have made recommendation to the board to change the color of the trim the next time the building gets painted.

What makes this condo unique

Very clean compare to staying at a hotel. Carpet and sofas are cleaned annually with spot cleaning as needed throughout the year to keep it clean and fresh for our guests. High end quality furnishings with 55' Samsung T.V. You will not be disappointed with the quality we put into this unit. Book today and see for yourself why we own the best unit in the complex. No cleaning fee because I do the cleaning myself and No Damage Insurance or Deposit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoy this unit very much. Great location and this unit had everything we needed. Truly 5 stars. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

A great little condo in a very good location. Clean and quiet.

  • 3 of 5

This was a great place to spend a few nights. We spent three nights here and we found it to be fine. The bed is very soft and the pillows weren't that great but it wasn't terrible. I would have had a hard time spending any longer here because of that. The carpet could use replacing. It's a shag carpet that doesn't feel that clean. The pool area was very relaxing. Note that the BBQ is not gas. All in all not a bad place particularly given the price.

Owner's Response: Bed was replaced because a few guests said it was too firm. There are four pillows on the bed and two more in the closet. They range from soft to medium to firm. We have them there so guests can choose whichever ones they prefer. Charcoal BBQ was disclosed in the listing. We shampoo the carpet twice a year and spot clean as needed. It just got shampoo this week. We really do our best to accommodate our guests so you have a wonderful stay. We even keep the price affordable by doing the cleaning ourselves. Good clean accommodation are hard to find in Kona. If you find a place you like, book it right away. We are honest owners that disclosed everything either through the description or pictures. We welcome emails, calls or texts of questions you may have before booking our condos. Mahalo for booking with us!

Lovely, clean well equipped, comfortable condo.

  • 5 of 5

We have only good things to say about our stay here! The owner was so communactive and kind, and the overall feel was one of comfort. The grounds and pool area were very well maintained and our stay was really quiet other than the beautiful sounds of the birds chirping in the morning! We would definitely come back and recommend this condo to friends.

A perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring all that Kona has to offer

  • 5 of 5

While the exterior is a little outdated, in interior is perfect. You honestly had everything you could need for any amount of stay. The unit was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the view provided a perfect slice of paradise. The location is pretty good relative to beaches and or food/drinks. Our stay here was wonderful, we'd definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: The complex exterior was repainted less than ten years ago. The brown trim color makes the buildings look dated. Parking lots were resurfaced this year with new roof and photo voltaic. It's a well maintained complex. I wished they had chosen a different color trim. I made the request for a different trim color to make it look better the next time painting happens. You will meet people with lots of Aloha, our clean and pretty unit at affordable price. We have returned guests year after year who enjoy our place.

Awesome Kona Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fantastic. We were a bit concerned since the nightly rate was quite a bit less than some of the other VRBO's we investigated/stayed at during our trip to the big island. But overall the condo was fantastic. Very clean and sufficiently spacious. The bed was very comfortable. Loved the frozen beer mugs in the freezer after our long trip back from the east side of the island. And the beach chairs provided were perfect for a relaxing day at the beach.

One downside we felt was the location of the property with respect to the downtown/shopping district in Kona. There were a number of people walking the street from the property to downtown, but the walkways are narrow and the traffic is moderately heavy. Recommend using the condo as your home base and driving to the areas of interest. Keep that in mind if you're accustomed to stepping outside your door and walking to the sites.

If you're looking for things to do from Kona, check out Waipio Valley. Hike down from the lookout to the'll need to be in decent shape to do the hike (or rent a 4WD vehicle) but it's well worth it. Was probably the highlight of our trip to the Big Island. And the beaches up by Waikoloa were spectacular. We ended up going back twice since the beach and surf there were so cool. Not great snorkeling, but lots of turtles around the beach.

Owner's Response: We keep our rates affordable because we manage and clean the two units ourselves. Because it's an island, homes and condos on Alii Drive are built so close together that there's limited sidewalks for pedestrians. With the winter snow on Mauna Kea, active volcano, beautiful beaches, Volcano National Park, this is the island to explore in Hawaii. Come fall in love with the Big Island!

If you enjoy walking, you can stroll to Alii Drive Farmer's Market for fresh local fruits, vegetables, sourvenier, restaurants, beaches, tourist activities, snorkeling, cloud forest to see parrots is only 10 minutes drive away.

We do our best to keep pests like ants and cockroaches out of the condo. With inspection and pest control twice a year as well as when it is needed, they do come in with fruits and vegetables you purchase and when you come back from beaches. They are great hitchhikers.
