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.

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 Kailua-Kona

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.

Like home with a Hawaiian flare

  • 5 of 5

The condo has great windows and ceiling fans, providing lots of ventilation; and it really felt like home with a Hawaiian flare. We had wonderful night's sleeps in the very comfortable bed. It is in a location close enough to town for walking and very close to Green Flash for smoothies, snacks, and that wonderful Kona coffee.

Situation is very good. Many insects surprised us.

  • 3 of 5

Considering the raised price during the Ironman week I am not satisfied with the quality of the property. If we pay such high rates in normal week we could stay huge house. Anyway we would be very happy with this condo itself except the special high rate. Even though we pay house cleaning it wasn’t neat enough especially kitchen equipments. Old Dishes and pans don’t give us happy cooking time. Any way thank you very much for nice kondo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our housekeepers told us they found a large box of sugar cubes left out. You can’t leave sugar out or you will have bugs. There are clearly posted food storage instructions on the refrigerator which were not followed. Bugs are common on the island if you leave food out. Our dishes and pots and pans are not old. We did find a small frying pan that had burn marks on it but it has been replaced. During Ironman all rates are much higher then any other time of the year. Our condo was priced appropriately for Ironman, for its location, and for its' amenities offered.

Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Love this condo and the complex! Everything about it is perfect. Very clean and beautifully updated. The owners have thought of everything for their guests even a nightlight in the bathroom. The complex is quiet and everyone we encountered was friendly. The pool area fantastic. Great location near town. Loved that we had an assigned parking spot. Will absolutely stay here again!

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.
