Beautiful, Spacious 3/3 Condo plus BEST location in Kona!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 15, 2014
Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6 - 7

We’re very proud of our condo and hope your vacation experience will be fit for a King!

Our two story third floor property has been tastefully renovated and furnished. The condo has wood floors throughout the living area, granite kitchen countertops and new appliances. There are three California King beds to provide ample space for guests of any size and the second floor suite with its own bath, TV, office area and two fans gives a larger group plenty of space to spread out. High speed wireless internet, cable TV and Hawaiian music on the stereo are standard as well.

There are eight large overhead fans to keep you cool on the warmest afternoons and the area is designed for good airflow with vaulted ceilings throughout. Of course, the lanai will provide the “coolest” area of all and has electric screens to block the indirect afternoon sun as well as an overhead fan.

We’ve also equipped the condo with everything you need for a great time including a full, well equipped kitchen, refrigerator with an automatic ice maker, dishwasher, tennis gear, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, boogie boards and shore fishing gear.

If you’d like some help with what to do in the area, we’d be happy to provide a list of our favorite things to do on the Big Island.

KEAUHOU KONA SURF AND RACQUET CLUB

Lying on the ocean side of Alii Drive, the KKSRC is a gated complex consisting of oceanfront, fairway and garden condominiums. Our unit has a beautiful garden view with a lot of privacy relative to many others in the area. All units have oceanfront access providing an opportunity to stroll along the coast, fish or watch beautiful sunsets just 150 steps from the unit. The shoreline also provides good elevation to watch the whales on their annual visit to the islands during the winter months.

Although much of the waterfront is lava, there is easy walking access to a sand beach with tide pools just north of the resort area and the reef just off shore provides good shore fishing opportunities as well. The resort is directly on the ocean and as all shoreline in Hawaii is public you will have the same access to the beach and shoreline as those renting “oceanfront” units so you’ll feel free to walk anywhere on the grounds or the adjacent properties to the north where an archeological project is taking place.

At the center of the resort complex are three lighted tennis courts, a large pool and a covered pavilion while 3 common grilling areas are provided around the grounds. The tennis courts are guest-managed on a first come first served basis and basic tennis equipment is available in the unit. We’ve rarely seen all three courts in use at the same time and night tennis is both cooler (temperature) and cooler (more fun). Adjacent to the tennis courts is a large L-shaped pool with one leg of the L built for small children and the other for swimming. Showers and restrooms are available poolside.

For golfers, the complex is perfectly situated between the ocean and the Kona Country Club, famous for 36 holes of championship golf winding between the ocean and nearby mountains.

KEAUHOU AREA

Keauhou rests peacefully at the southern end of Alii Drive. In Hawaiian, Alii means King or Chief, and for centuries this area was home to native Hawaiian kings seeking peace, beauty and respite. Alii Drive is the focus for activity in Kailua, just 5 miles north, but the action gets more relaxed as you work your way to the south end. Less than a mile away is King Kamehameha III Ave, a road that links Alii Drive to the mountain highway, allowing you quick access to your best routes either south or north along the Kona coast.

Within two miles of the KKSRC, you can find an amazing number of things to do. In addition to golf, off-site to the north, you can snorkel, swim, take a surfing lesson, kayak or just lay on the beach at the famous Kahalu’u Beach Park. It is known as one of the best and most protected snorkeling areas on the island and it’s less than a mile from KKSRC. Continuing north along Alii, there are a number of beach parks, each with its own unique features.

Going south, peaceful Keauhou Bay has a wonderful swimming and picnic area in addition to the local canoe club headquarters. There are only a few fishing charters that work out of this bay and we can help you make a contact with them if you’re interested in going after the big ones. Beyond the bay is a sacred Hawaiian area that is barren except for a foot trail that you can walk. You’ll see hand-built rock walls dating back more than 100 years and the occasional offering…right alongside a rock climber or cliff diver.

Finally, within walking distance, the Keauhou Shopping Center provides a great place to pick up your groceries, locally caught fish, sunscreen, beer and the flip-flops you left at home. There is also a movie theatre and a number of excellent restaurants. There is even a farmers market on Sunday with live music and many local products for sale.

Beyond the two-mile radius, the Kona coast offers a tremendous diversity of things to do. You might visit a Kona Coffee Farm, take a short tour and taste coffee made from peaberry, snorkel at the location where Captain Cook died in 1779, hike the mountains and shoreline along marked (and unmarked) trails, run on Alii drive (there are markers at each HALF mile), shore fish or charter a boat to catch a fish potentially larger than your rental car, walk to (nearly) deserted beaches, or sample the nightlife in Kailua town.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five began our Hawaiian vacation here last week. We have two teenage boys and a pre-teen girl. The condo was in a great location for our active family. We did beach activities for two of the four days we were there and the equipment provided helped us make that time worry free. We were able to find great boogie boarding action about 30 minutes north and great snorkeling about 30 minutes south. Additional access to shopping at the top of the hill was very convenient.

The condo was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. When I booked this in November, I was a little worried about no a/c. My worries were unfounded. The design of the condo provides for plenty of air flow and the condo stayed very comfortable. The dealings with the owners was top notch and very timely. We would stay here again if we are fortunate enough to return to the big island.

This was our 2nd year at this great place! We had a great time in Feb 2013 and just had to come back with family this year. There is so much to see and do on the big Island. We still have more to see, so we will be back again! Bob and Judy provide a lot of gear, so you do not have to come with much. Beach umbrellas, shoes and towels, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, coolers, and fishing gear is there at the condo. This condo is very well equipped. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. The king size beds are very comfortable and everything in the condo is kept immaculate. The location is so accessible to beaches, shopping and highways to visit other parts of the island. We gathered a lot on the large Lanai. The pool area is nice and large also. The property is beautiful for sunset watching and very quiet; except for waking up to the birds; a piece of paradise for sure! It was hard to come home to Minnesota this year.
We will be back soon! Thank you Bob and Judy!

excellent home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 spent a blissful week at this beautiful unit. Very well stocked in every way, all conveniences of home were provided. Excellent and trouble free WIFI, in a quiet , gated and safe complex, great pool, this place has it all. The gracious owners were very quick to respond to my questions. It is within easy and safe walking distance of an excellent snorkeling bay to the north, and also near a supermarket and Longs Drugstore in the shopping center up the hill. Amazingly comfortable beds, and my husband and I are very picky! The unit was very clean and the beach chairs and snorkeling equipment saved us time and money. Enjoy your stay, this is the place!

Best condo experience ever!

  • 5 of 5
The cleanliness and quality of this condo are accurately represented here, yet photos cannot do it justice any more than photos of a beach are as satisfying as being there. The seven of us--three grandparents, two parents, a teen and a preteen--never felt crowded together. Plenty of seating for meals and lounging, three bedrooms, three king beds with plenty of linens and a chair bed that was perfect for the grandson kept us comfortable throughout. A large washer and dryer in one of the three bathrooms made it easy to keep clothing fresh while traveling light. We spent a lot of time on the spacious lanai, especially early mornings and late evenings.

We especially enjoyed the use of snorkeling gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, the assortment of reef shoes and plenty of beach towels. We are an active bunch and used all those items plus the tennis rackets and ample supply of tennis balls, all stored for our use on the lanai. I think the only thing we didn't use was the fishing equipment. Maybe next time. We probably saved the equivalent of one night's condo rental on excess baggage fees, not having to bring all our own stuff. There was even a good quality hair dryer in each bathroom, music cd's, video tapes and dvd's and quite a number of books to read.

The kitchen was well equipped for serious cooking with quality implements and appliances and, again, we used most of them. With plenty of cookware and table service, running the large capacity dishwasher once daily easily handled what the seven of us used.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with and the resort staff were friendly and accommodating. We will make every effort to secure this condo on all future trips to the Big Island.

Wow! We could not have asked for a better place to stay! This a real gem.

  • 5 of 5
King's Condo was really a wonderful place to stay on our first trip to Hawaii. The condo was easy to find, very comfortable, clean and the owner's were easy to contact and work with. The location was perfect, close to shopping, beaches, snorkeling, fishing and sight seeing. The listing is exactly what it says it is. I would stay here again and would definitely recommend it to anybody. No A/C was no problem, even on the third floor; there are plenty of ceiling fans. We had five adults and two children (16 and 12) and there was plenty of room. The beds were very inviting and comfortable. Many of the furnishings were new, everything was in good shape. The shoreline out front is rocky (lava), but one can easily walk south about two blocks to a great snorkeling beach. There are also close swimming beaches. If the ocean doesn't interest you, the swimming pool is very nice. I have NO negative things to say about this unit, the grounds or the owners, it was just great! if you find a better place I would be surprised, this was a great place if you wanted to do and see a wide variety of things.

Our Family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
It was beyond great! The condo is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath unit on the 3rd floor of the complex. Each bedroom had a California king bed and wonderful amenities.

We hosted our two sons, daughter-in-laws and Henry Pepper our 20 month old grandson.

Each of us raved about the condo, the extras, the furnishings, the small things, like maps, guides, reviews of local places. The lanai was perfect for sunsets, cocktails, relaxing.

Check out the closets on the lanai. Our grandson played with everything, both on the lanai and the beach. The sons and wives used the boards, as well as all of the coolers and beach towels for daily excursions around the island.

We could not be more pleased. It exceeded our expectations.
