Property description

PLEASE check with owner before booking (e mail, cell, or text) ........ we can make sure it is a GOOD MATCH. You may save money as well, and we also have a 2nd floor unit oceanfront and that might be open for your dates and we can talk about that, as well as your looking at my website.
Looking for a Special Place to relax with wonderful oceanfront views? You have found it, beautiful 2 bed/2 bath, or can be rented as a 1 bedroom. KONA Condo has all the conveniences of home, with awesome views of ocean, sea turtles, surf and sunsets. Luxurious, panoramic 180 degree view of breathtaking ocean and sunsets from your large 200 sq. ft. lanai. Our location is at the northern end of the building, which is the preferred location. We do rely on the great ocean breezes and ceiling fans for cooling. So, if you prefer to have a.c, and sleeping behind closed doors, this is not it. This place has wonderful crashing waves, that I love falling to sleep listening to, but we do keep our floor to ceiling doors open full in the summer. This place is not for those who are bothered by the sound of the ocean but rather for those who love the ambiance.
Romantic, totally private, 30 feet to the water. Don't worry we have an elevator in the building, to get you to the top floor. When you walk in, all you see is ocean and palm trees; when you sleep in the master bedroom, it is oceanfront; all you hear are the sounds of the surf. Whether you prefer the 2nd floor (see website to look at that one,) or the 4th (top floor); both have all the same amenities, views, layout, etc. We do own 2 in the same building! Living room and master bedroom have Floor to Ceiling glass sliding doors (with screens) across the water. VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM with the exception of the 2nd bedroom. Fully equipped kitchen, Washer/Dryer in the unit, High Speed WiFi included, 2 cable flat screen TVs, CD player, Ceiling Fans for cooling in every room (no a/c), library of Hawaiian books, DVD with movies for your use, and of course, free parking in the garage. Tiled floors including lanai, tropical furnishings, upgraded granite in kitchen and both bathrooms, new cabinets, tide pools, sea turtles live on property, best surfing beach on the island, Pool, Jacuzzi, Free Parking, only 3 miles from town, in a private quiet location grocery is 2 miles away. Come stay in a home taken care of with TLC. There is also the POKE SHACK, which on Yelp is one of the top eateries in the islands, if you love POKE!!
Many of our guests return year after year. We'd love to share our special place with you. We also have another unit, (2nd floor ) in the same building, so inquire if interested as dates might be open! (gaylescondo.com) will show you some more pictures of our places. LInk and Video below is of the 2nd floor for your viewing.
Many units say they are on the ocean, this one is as close as it gets, and the view is AWESOME!! Pictures are worth a thousand words, so check website below in this ad under LINKS.

Call or e-mail owner for availability or any other questions. IF you want to rent directly through us, without extra fees, ,please call or e mail me; you can save some money. We'd love to share our place with you and we do not rent through any agents or front desk.

Car: Recommended

Close to town, yet private and quiet..........farmer's markets nearby, arts and crafts, supermarkets (2 miles), small beach on property, best surfing beach as well...........turtles right on site, 365 days per year! POKE shack (loved by everyone) and surf shop on property. You can't get any closer to the ocean, than this unit.

Also, Costco is on island, between condo and the airport.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: We have been married 40+ years and have loved Kona since we first traveled there in the 70's. We love lava rock, huge waves, watching surfers, awesome sunsets, turtles and being so close to the ocean. This building was as close as one could get! We'd love to share either of our oceanfront places with you. Just call, email or text me for more information.

Why the Owner Chose Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
This building was built in the 70's before anyone worried about building so close to the ocean waves. Consequently, you feel like you are almost in the water. The master bedroom is oceanfront, and the waves lull you to sleep at night. The lanai is HUGE, 200 sq. ft. across, offering panoramic views. I rented here before purchasing and fell in love! You will too.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Proximity to ocean, sea turtles who live right below us, on property and are there 24/7 year round. Amazing sunsets year round, and wonderful tide pools out back at low tide.
