About the Property

Two Bedroom, One Bath, Fully Equipped Kitchen. Lanai with Ocean View!

This is your home away from home. A cozy, newly remodeled, two bedroom, one bath condo located two blocks from the ocean in the Heart of downtown Kailua-Kona.
The second story location affords views of the ocean, mountain side, and Kailua Town, while catching the cool ocean breezes. On the extra warm days, the air-conditioner will help you chill out.
The living area has a sofa, two chairs with ottomans, and a coffee table, with a view onto the lanai and the blue Pacific beyond.
Relax on the lanai with your morning coffee, evening cocktail, or any mealtime (actually, anytime you'd like).
The living room and main bedroom both have flat screen TVs. A DVD player and an assortment of DVDs are provided for your viewing pleasure.
You will find a roomy king size bed in main bedroom, along with a dresser and full mirrored closet doors. Just outside are colorful, flowering Plumeria trees, and ocean breezes waft through your open window.
The second bedroom offers a queen size bed, also with dresser and full mirrored closet doors, and a tropical garden view.
There are ceiling fans throughout the home, including the kitchen, which is usually all you'll need to stay cool.
A fully equipped kitchen, and super markets within walking distance, will allow you to dine in, saving you both time and money that you can spend, instead, on your Island Adventures.
The bathroom has a large walk-in shower with a bench seat. We encourage you to save water and shower with a friend!
A short walk through the nicely landscaped grounds will lead you to the pool pavilion, where you can swim, or relax in a lounge chair, working on your Hawaiian tan. Here, you will also find picnic tables and a gas BBQ for grilling your freshly caught Ahi steaks.
Because you're so close to everything, you won't even need to rent a car until you're ready to go off and explore the rest of the Island. In less than a five minute walk, you've reached beautiful, historic, Kamakahonu ('the turtle eye') Beach. The calm waters make this a safe spot for both children and adults alike. It's a popular beach with snorkeling and kayaking and you can rent such equipment right there. Adjacent to the beach is the Kailua Pier, the jump off point for several boating tours. From here you can also stroll down Ali'i Drive, which is lined with shops, galleries, restaurants, museums, night clubs, farmer's market, parks, and more beaches.
The World Famous Kona Brewing Co. is also just a five minute walk away. They offer a variety of micro brews that you won't find in any store, often with live music, and a delicious menu for your dining pleasure.
Many people find Kailua Town offers enough activities to keep them entertained for several days of their vacation.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: Elaine & Dave live on the Hilo side of the Big Island, two hours away from Kailua-Kona, in the lush rain forest. We enjoy an occasional get-a-way to the Kona side ourselves, the dry and sunny side of the Island. We raise Mediterranean Miniature Donkeys, Llamas, and Honey Bees. You'll get a chance to sample a complimentary jar of our Hawaiian Wild Flower Honey if you choose to stay at Hale Pono.

Why Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
Not only is it in a great location, within walking distance of everything, but we are also able to offer it at a very affordable price. We've stayed at several local hotels ourselves and have found them expensive and inconvenient.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Ocean and sunset views with ocean breezes. Near the route for the Ironman Triathlon. You can do without a car. Plus, you have the opportunity to interact with regular local people, if you choose.
