Stainless steel appliances;

Pendant lighting in the kitchen;

Vessel sink in the bathroom;

Full size step in shower with shadow box for soap;

To keep with the Hawaiian style there are custom made Shoji doors for bedroom separation and Hawaiian artwork to create that tropical atmosphere. The living room has a new Hawaiian style queen sofa bed.

The fully equipped kitchen and dining bar is open to the living room. The flat screen television is built into the dining bar and on a wall mounted bracket making it convenient to watch from either the living room or bedroom. Have your morning coffee enjoying the ocean views from the breakfast bar inside or outside on the lanai. Every day is paradise!

Our condo is designed to make your stay on the island enjoyable. Along with the normal items, there are beach towels, beach mats, extra pillows/linens/blankets, beach umbrella, cooler, and an island guide book to make getting around the island easier.

There is free secure wireless internet, cable, Blu Ray player, movies, games, books, and an alarm clock with IPOD hookup. Private parking stall included.

Only a short walk from the center of town, the amenities at Kona Shores include a pool RIGHT ON THE CLIFFS OVERLOOKING THE OCEAN. You can watch the sunset or gaze at the stars while you are swimming in the pool. The Kailua-Kona Coast has the most colorful and spectacular orange, pink, lavender sunsets in Hawaii. Maybe you’ll be lucky and spot the famous ‘Green Flash” at sunset, as the sun dips behind the horizon. On the way to the pool there is a passion fruit vine in which you can pick the fruit right off the vine. There is a BBQ area with tables and an outside sink for BBQ cleanup. There's also a path leading to the ocean where you can swim, snorkel, and fish.

About Bryan and Cynthia Bertrand

Retired and living the life we want.

Bryan and Cynthia Bertrand purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bryan and Cynthia Bertrand chose Kona Coast

We have been coming to the Hawaiian islands since the 70's. Of all the islands, we love the quaintness of Kailua-Kona. The small town feel is comforting and gives us a chance to relax and enjoy life. Kona Shores has the same feel and is a short easy walk to town.

What makes this condo unique

We love being able to take short walks to town, having breakfast on the lanai while enjoying the ocean views, swimming in the ocean view pool, sunsets, and barbeques.

Lovely condo, good location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely, nicely furnished, with a very pleasant terrace for meals. The location was great, walking distance or a short drive from both the town and beaches. Well appointed kitchen (though no dish washer), beach equipment available for use, pool with a fabulous view of the ocean. The immediate beach is not swimmable, the only reason we've given 4 stars instead of 5. But we would not hesitate to come back.

Happy Kona Bob client

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here the last 3 mo. off and on. This is a darling remodeled spacious studio has everything you need to stay in or close enough to all the restaurants in Kona, walking distance to the great Green Flash Coffee for Kona Coffee if needed. Owners are pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend staying here.!!

We enjoyed a fabulous week here at Kona Bob's!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Kona for the ironman world championships. The condo was cozy and we enjoyed everything it had to offer. We had breakfast and lunch at the condo and went out for dinner at all of the nearby restaurants. I enjoyed some time at the pool and took in the fantastic views. We thought the property was well maintained and the people around were friendly. We would stay here again for ironman week!

We would be happy to have you visit again. Thank you for booking with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We spend 3-4 months in our condo and find that it is just the right size since we basically live outside most of the time. We spend many nights on the lanai as well. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Mahalo.

Overall this was an excellent stay in a wonderful condo.

  • 5 of 5

When Jen and I arrived it was late. There was an issue right away but no fault of the owners. The complex had just re-tarred and no parking numbers posted. We contacted the owners the next morning and they were very gracious said they would contact the manager. After this initial problem the rest of the stay was flawless.

This is a bright condo with all the amenities. It was clean and beautifully furnished. We felt totally at home. The beaches and town were close and this made it easy to get around. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have booked for next year. A closing note is that I forgot some golf shirts and when asked the owners located them and said they would forward them. This is service with a smile and shows that the owners want to ensure agree at stay at Kona Bob's.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and thank you for your understanding about the parking lot resurfacing. We were told by management everything was completed. However, they failed to tell us they didn't number the spaces. That's so Hawaii. The spaces are now numbered. We are pleased to hear you felt at home in the condo. We always feel at home there and wanted to provide that feeling to everyone so it makes us happy everything was to your liking. It is no problem for us to send back your golf shirts. When someone leaves something we do try to locate it and send it back to the owner. We are looking forward to having you back next year, golf shirts and all.

The Kailua-Kona Historical Village is only about 1 mile from our lovely condo. The Village is very quaint, with lots of charm and good shopping right along the water’s edge. Some of the activities you can find in the Village and nearby are: beaches, luau’s, farmer’s markets, art galleries, shops, restaurants, boating, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boogie boarding, and deep sea fishing…Just about every water sport you can think of! There are also several great golf courses nearby. There is so much to do to stay active, or you can do nothing and just lounge at the pool.
