About Debbie

Your Kona Beach Condo is our second home! The condo has never before been rented in the past. This is the first year, 2017, to offer this condo as a vacation rental when we are unable to be here paddling, swimming and enjoying all Hawaii has to offer including the wonderful Aloha spirit of the people that live here! When not here in Kona, we live in Bend, Oregon. We hope our guests treat our condo as "their home away from home" so it stays nice for all. It is a special place!! Relax on the beautiful lanai and enjoy the Aloha spirit!

Debbie purchased this condo in 2015

Why Debbie chose Kailua-Kona

We love this property because Kona Nalu is a small condo complex (15 units total), 3 floors. Our unit is on the top floor corner with windows along the entire south side and west side for incredible ocean and sunset views and breezes. It really is a special, unique spot yet close to the village of Kona , the best snorkel spots and so much more ! The name of the Condo Complex is Kona Nalu.

What makes this condo unique

While enjoying the spectacular views from the lanai, we have difficult choices to make each day: Putting on snorkel-gear and heading to the beach, swimming with the spinner dolphins, surfing, stand up paddle boards, outrigger canoes or just laying by the pool. And then there is golfing within 5 miles, and tennis and pickle ball courts that welcome visitors. Sometimes the stress of these decisions can be overwhelming. 

The Big Island has so much to offer: Explore an active volcano at the wonderful Volcano National Park, take a trip to Mauna Kea to some of the world’s largest telescopes at 13,796 ft and learn about the stars and solar system, visit the local coffee plantations, macadamia nut plantations and the Original Hawaiian Chocolate factory. The choices and diversity are amazing on this wonderful island!

Wonderful place with views to die for!

  • 5 of 5

First off this unit is in the premier location in it’s small complex. It’s on the top floor with beautiful ocean views. It’s an end unit so it views the ocean to the south across a park like setting of an old stone church next door. The kitchen has everything we could have wanted, the unit was spotless, and the king sized bed in the master bedroom was great. We were glad to be just far enough from the downtown area to have a quiet stay but close enough to run in for dining and shopping as needed. This was the most expensive of the three different condos we stayed in on our visit and was well worth the cost. Thanks, Debbie, for being easy to communicate with and for sharing your dream of a vacation home!

Beautiful view , conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly as described. With a beautiful lanai that was nice to sit and chill on. Nightly we were lulled to sleep by the crash of the waves. We had two issues with the unit that were quickly resolved. Would highly recommend

Fantastic ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

We thought this property was perfect. The descriptions were spot on.

As soon as we walked in we knew we had mad a good decision to rent here. The entire unit has a very updated and modern look. The fact that it is on the corner of the building is a huge plus. Easily accessible covered parking. Only a short drive, or maybe a little bit of a walk (2 miles), in to the heart of Kailua-Kona.

The views from the living area and the master bedroom are pretty amazing. The only obstruction to the view is the palm trees on the beach. The lanai is very comfortable and a great place for coffee in the morning. In the afternoon and evening we also found it to be very comfortable. The roof provides needed shade and the breeze off of the ocean is just right to keep it cool enough to relax.

Although we did not see any whales, since we were after the season, we did have a turtle come visit in the tidal area right in front of the unit.

This spot is as advertised, or maybe even a little better. It is hard to put the sounds of the ocean in to pictures. Highly recommend!!

Wonderful oceanfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

The main thing, of course, is that you are directly on the waterfront. No other condos in front of you, and since it is the end unit, you have an open view. Just a straight shot looking out over the ocean. The sound of the surf is so relaxing. In the morning, outriggers are moving through the waters, and you are welcome to join them if you feel like it. In the evening, you can sit on the lanai with a drink (or more!) and watch the sunset. Turtles can be seen burrowing into the sand below. The condo is very comfortable for two couples with two separate bedroom and bath areas. Everything is provided, and the unit is extremely clean. It was our first time in Kona, and we enjoyed the access to restaurants, shopping and golf in the area. We will surely rent this condo again!

Gorgeous Ocean & Sunset Views - Pictures Say it All

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for gorgeous ocean and sunset views, this is the place. Have stayed here twice and am looking forward to booking my return. It is such a comfortable retreat and the private corner unit has unobstructed beautiful views. The bedrooms are on opposite sides and each can be closed to offer ensuite bathrooms allowing for privacy. It was great sleeping with the windows open and hearing the ocean waves. Fully stocked with everything a vacationer needs. Tasteful decor, comfortable bed, soft towels, washer & dryer, nice cookware...the list is endless. The views from the very spacious lanai are spectacular, including the many varieties of birds, a resident turtle visible at low tide, and spinner dolphins. The pool is only a few steps away as well as exploring the shoreline tide pools. It is in a very good location; away from the tourist area, but close enough to easily access town. Lots of restaurants, shopping, and many outdoor activities from which to choose. Enjoyed going to the nearby beaches for snorkeling. Everything was as advertised, very convenient and exceeded expectations. You will feel like you are at home, so hard to leave, but know it will be there for the next visit. Thanks again for the wonderful stay. Mahalo!
