Guestbook comments from the owner

We were most pleased and happy staying in this great condo. It is roomy and well

maintained with classy furniture and finishes. Sitting right on the golf course the

surroundings are peaceful and beautiful. We loved listening to and watching the

birds. And the sunsets, they were just spectacular.

Carla and Lou have gone out of their way to make the place feel like home. The kitchen is equipped with everything we needed to cook and relax after a day out playing in the surf and sun. The condo houses 2 bikes which we rode everyday along with a boogie and surf board. We loved the pool and there were plenty of beach towels and coolers provided for all our needs. Oh, and the fantastic lanai with glass table and chairs was a perfect way to greet the day with coffee and toast. And I almost forgot the barbecue which we used almost daily.

Thank you so much, we really enjoyed our 5 week stay and plan to return soon.

Accessibility - While this is a ground floor unit, only the back side or the condo (toward the golf course) daylights to ground level, you would take a flight of stairs down from the parking lot level to the condo front door. The steps can be circumvented by traversing around the building on a gently sloping sidewalk with handrail, to access the ground-level lanai. This path is pavement and concrete sidewalk, the last 12 feet or so would be across grass. The photos of the lanai on this website show the un-paved terrain between the sidewalk and the lanai.

Ideal spot for relaxing and exploring Kona

This place was terrific. Had everything we needed and more. Great location, close to everything. Very responsive owners. The condo manager was very nice as well. A quiet spot, with great pool and walking distance to bay with great cafe! We would return for sure!

Beautiful outside & inside!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to the Big Island and Kona did not disappoint. The condo is a short distance from "downtown" Kona (Kailua Bay) and we took advantage of the bikes provided. The condo has been updated throughout and has everything you might need. The only reason we can't give 5 stars is the lack of air conditioning, but that seems to be pretty standard on the island. It was "unseasonably" humid while we were there, according to the locals. The lanai screen doors and multiple ceiling fans made it comfortable. We would definitely return!

That condo is perfect for a vacation in Hawaii.

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place to stay for the Ironman in Kona. Close enough to the activities so we didn’t miss anything and far enough to have a calm environment to rest when it was needed. The condo have lots of room and is very comfortable. It is close to a popular beach and have a large pool on the site. The owner gave us all the information needed to have a perfect stay. We will remember those vacations for a long time.

The condo was one of the best equipped and maintained rentals we have stayed in so far and we have stayed in quite a few... It was very spacious, clean and well taken care of. The kitchen had everything to prepare meals. We used the gas grill on the lanai frequently and ate all our meals outside. I went swimming in the pool almost every morning and we rode the bikes to nearby Kahaluu Beach Park, which is a great spot for snorkeling. If we didn't feel to take the car to Kona in the evening, we walked to the Sheraton at Keauhou Bay and took the shuttle into town. Everything was perfect, overall a wonderful experience!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I am a born and raised former Hawaii resident. Returning to Hawaii for a winter vacation was made wonderful w/the condo's location, amenities, and thoughtful touches. The location is close to Keauhou Bay and Shopping center w/access to grocery shopping and dining options. The owners were very attentive and pro-active to our needs. The website is as advertised and the pictures do not lie. We would recommend the property to friends looking for a winter escape.

Outdoor everything

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous in every way. I loved the wi fi connections, cable and access to the telephone. We ate all of our meals outside. In the morning the birds entertained us and in the evening the palm trees swayed us. I used the bikes and rode to the local snorkeling beach in 5 minutes. I was surrounded by 20 parrot fish. The beach is protected and calm enough for little ones who can see turtles at the water's edge. We hit the night life too - the Mai Tai festival and the Royal Kona Hotel - What could be better than live music pool side. I went swimming in the pool and took multiple hot tubs in the evening. Always clean, quiet and a treat. Loved my stay at this condo.

The Keauhou Punahele Condominiums are at the southern end of Ali’i Drive, about 6 miles south of the Kailua Kona downtown/waterfront area. The community of Keauhou surrounds Keauhou Bay, a popular access point for fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and all other water activities.

Keauhou Punahele is nestled between the mountain course and ocean course of the Kona Country Club. This condo is in the southermost building of Keauhou Punahele, and offers a very quiet and serene atmosphere.

One-half mile north is Keauhou Bay with a small boat harbor and local fishing. One-half mile south is pedestrian access to a scenic and rugged lava shoreline.

Fabulous dining and shopping in downtown Kailua is only a 15 minute drive on the spectacular scenic ocean view Ali'i Drive. The Keauhou Shopping Center is only one mile away, and contains over 40 stores and restaurants, including a very large grocery store and movie theater. Just under two miles away is the lovely Kahaluu Beach park, with an abundance of wildlife for fabulous snorkeling, swimming and surfing. This area is frequented by sea turtles. The park has a picnic area with a shelter stucture, tables and chairs, showers, restrooms and free public parking. One mile further is White Sands beach, a popular swimming beach with beach volleyball.

90 miles from our front door is the stunning Volcanoes National Park, and the Airport is only 30 mins away.
