About Trent Dockstetter

We bought this second condo because our first condo in Kailua Village only slept 4 and there wasn't room for all our Ohana that want to come to The Big Island! Like our first condo, we went way over-budget renovating and decorating, but that’s OK because we enjoy staying here ourselves so much and we want others to enjoy it too.

Trent Dockstetter purchased this condo in 2014

Why Trent Dockstetter chose Kailua-Kona

We wanted a condo in Keauhou on the golf course with ocean views. We wanted a luxury condo where we could relax and decompress. It needed to be within walking distances of the ocean and restaurants. The condo needed to be updated and well appointed. We wanted little to no stairs to have to lug suite cases up. We achieved our wish list with this condo! The first thing we fell in love with of our condo was the view! I truly feel we have the most beautiful lanai in the complex. The view of the Pacific Ocean over the golf course is incredible and the lush plantings on and around the lanai are unmatched. Sitting on the garden lanai, watching the sunset with a cold drink while your dinner cooks on the gas grill is pretty nice!

When we bought the condo it needed an extensive remodel. Although it was expensive to do, this remodel gave us a clean slate to start over, remodel and decorate.

What makes this condo unique

We created an open feeling with all rooms (except baths) having ocean views.

This open plan does not compromise privacy. 2 couples can sleep with privacy. The day room can be closed off from the living room by sliding out the 4-panel doors and the murphy bed has a comfortable queen size mattress.

The queen-size pull-out sofa in the living room can also be used for a comfortable third sleeping area.

In the kitchen we installed tall custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Accessorized it with all sorts of knives, mixing bowls, rice cooker and so forth to satisfy the gourmet chef. We even have a Keurig and regular drip coffee maker and coffee grinder as well as a French Press.

Ceiling fans are installed through-out. Walls surfaces are all hand textured. Porcelain and travertine tile is used throughout.

The 2 flat screen “Smart” TV’s both have cable TV, free Netflix and commercial free Pandora radio.

Free secured Wi-Fi broadband internet for both speed (50 Mbps!) and security.

There is a new computer and laser printer. It is fun to browse the web on the big screen TV together as you plan out the next day’s adventure or check out the menu of a nearby restaurant.

Although the Keauhou Akahi condo is very exclusive and safe, for our guest’s peace of mind and optimal security, there is a room safe bolted to the closet floor and a motion sensor alarm that can be turned on at night to monitor the lanai and sliding glass and screen doors.

Our guests are welcome to use the brand new, full size stacker washer and dryer.

Plenty of quality towels, pillows and linens for all three beds.

We provide beach towels, ice chests, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear and so forth.

The Master bedroom suite does have Air Conditioning but most people will not feel the need to use it because of the cool ocean breezes and the many ceiling fans. Feel free to use either of the two phones to call to anywhere within the United States or Canada for free.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to send off a quick note to say thank you! The condo was absolutely amazing! I now know why they say Hawaii is Paradise. It was a beautiful trip and we will be booking with you again next year!

Everything you could ask for in a Kona area rental

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in the condo for 12 nights in August 2017, and LOVED this condo. The lanai is just a dream, with wonderful views of the ocean and the very tasteful golf course landscaping, and picture-perfect sunsets. The beds are very comfortable, and it is a treat to have two large bathrooms at this price point. The kitchen is FULLY equipped, with everything that you could ask for during a 10-day stay. The owner Trent is very thoughtful in anticipating your every need, and provides a lot of beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs, etc., as well as all the supplies you would need to take food with you on your trips). For scuba divers, the condo is very convenient, as the lanai has a high-pressure hose that lets you rinse your all gear quickly. The pool at the condo complex is charming and a pleasant place to relax, and it's surprisingly deep (6 feet). Parking is free, abundant, and very convenient. And the location is excellent -- short drive to town, but all the peace and serenity you could ask for. I will also say that we did not use the A/C at all after the first night, even in the middle of August, as the ocean breezes keep the condo plenty comfortable.

Great view

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in four apartments through Home Away in August 2017. Trent's place has an amazing view. The apartment was compact, but fully equipped and modern. It has an excellent location, close enough to town to allow easy access to the activities the area offers, but far enough to be away from the noise and bustle. There's a shopping center just a couple of minutes' drive away. The only downside (if you call it that) is that it's a bit of an overstatement to call this place a two bedroom apartment. It's really a one-bedroom that sleeps four through the use of a fold-down bed in the living room area and some partitions. That worked out fine for us, but it might not for everybody.

Great place on a budget

  • 5 of 5

First the owner is very nice and easy to work with, we couldn't have had a better experience from a customer service or attention to details. He was responsive, fair and very helpful.

It was perfect for my daughter and myself for the 10 days we visited Kona. It is well equipped, with everything you need and has been updated to make it very attractive. Its close to town and easy access to stores and local dinning, and no road noise at all.

Its the perfect place to use as a base camp and head out for the day, returning to a very comfortable condo to relax and sleep. The only negatives that I would say is the pool, its small and not a place you would relax and enjoy the view. This is not a upscale condo, even though the owner did a fantastic job at updating the interior. If your looking for a really fancy place to stay at for a good portion of the day, this is not for you. But if your looking for a very clean , well decorated, excellent location and super value, I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank for staying with us. We always try to be completely upfront with all of our guests and make sure that all of the pictures are very accurate and not miss-representative in any way (including the pictures of the pool and the ocean-view from the pool). Candidly I was somewhat surprised with your comments about the pool and "Up-Scale-ness" of the condo complex. However we are glad that you liked our condo.

Calming view

  • 5 of 5

Trent was absolutely right, his unit has the best view of the golf course and of the ocean. As already commented on by others his unit is first class with furniture, bedding, kitchenware & beach accessories. Although many feel the ocean breezes are sufficient, my wife and I were ecstatic that there was air conditioning in the bedroom. Access to Netflix was a nice feature. We couldn't have asked for a more accommodating homeowner. Thanks for sharing your island home with us.

Best of the best!

Thank you for letting me enjoy your island home! It is beautifully decorated and so well cared for and makes me feel at home. I have stayed at Akahi for many years and it is the perfect unit & complex for couples looking for a quiet getaway home. Trent & Debbie are always wonderful to deal with and make the rental transaction simple, carefree and secure! You will want to return here year after year...thanks for sharing your home with me.
