About Vicki Vaughan

We fell in love with Hawaii during our first visit to Kona in March of 2013 and purchased our condo at Kona Shores knowing we would return again.

We hope you catch the 'Aloha Spirit', as we have, while you relax and vacation in paradise!

Mahalo for stopping by! Enjoy Kona Shores!

Vicki Vaughan purchased this condo in 2013

Why Vicki Vaughan chose Kailua-Kona

This condo was totally remodeled and features full sized appliances, gas stove, granite counters in the kitchen and a full sized bathroom. A king size bed, couch that converts to full size bed, 40 inch smart TV with cable, Wi-Fi, AC and assigned parking all included. The condo is fully furnished and stocked with everything you need for your vacation. You will truly not want for anything during your stay.

The spectacular sunsets at the pool area will be unforgettable. And, since the pool is literally on the Pacific Ocean you may see dolphins playing, colorful fish, sea turtles, and when in season, humpback whales.

What makes this condo unique

The location of this property is amazingly central on Alii Drive, close to downtown Kona and easy to get to! There are laundry facilities, bike rack, assigned parking, Wi-Fi, smart TV and cable. The cabana and ocean side pool are just a moments walk from your unit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful time! The condo was great-good location and well stocked. Loved visiting Kona Joe's for breakfast & coffee tasting. Makalawena beach was beautiful -the water was so clear, plus it wasn't crowded. The botanical gardens in Hilo were very cool. Thank you! We will be back!

Beautifully remodeled, stocked to the brim with anything you may need

  • 5 of 5

They really put in an amazing effort in remodeling this place. Beautiful kitchen and bathroom full of all the utensils, cookware, plates, and toiletries you could possibly need. The shower was amazing! Wonderful wide shower head that was 7 feet high! Warm water with good pressure, plenty of towels and beach towels as well. King size bed that was quite firm. You get your own parking spot. The pool was a short walk through the parking lot and is overlooking the ocean! Absolutely loved this place! The A/C unit and two ceiling fans were much appreciated after you get back from your adventures. The property manager was detailed and thorough with instructional emails and responded promptly to any questions. Good location as well, just a mile from downtown. I would highly recommend this rental!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this well appointed condo! Appreciated that there was an umbrella and cooler bag available for beach use. Only thing to note is the unit faces the road so if you’re a light sleeper it’s something to consider, although not much traffic noise at night.
