Nestled at the foot of Hualalai Volcano Kailua Kona had its beginning as a tiny fishing village.
Today you will still find that small village feeling and the Aloha Spirit alive and well.
The 2 lane road Alii Drive which travels along the ocean boasts scenery which cant be topped.Kailua is still that little sleepy town that closes up at 9 pm. A very few establishments are open till 10 or possibly 11 PM. The surfers are out waiting for the 'big one" in the morning and as always when sunset comes people stop doing whatever and watch in awe. Things really have stayed the same.
Holualoa Gardens sits midway between the resort areas of Kailua town and Keauhou. The complex is hidden just off Alii Dr which insures privacy and quiet. The building is directly across the street from the Pacific Ocean. Holualoa Bay and the popular surfing beach called Banyans is reached by simply walking across Alii Drive. Pick a sandy spot and have a picnic watching the sunset. La'aloa Beach Park which is also known as Magic Sands Beach is a popular place for boogie boarding. Magic Sands is located a short mile to the south.. Traveling another mile further south (2 miles from the condo) is Kahalu'u Beach which is considered one of the best snorkeling spots on the Island. (Turtle sighting are almost guaranteed )
We are located about 2 1/2 miles from the "downtown" The location is excellent as a home base. We are close to the village yet at a distance for peace and quiet. You couldnt find a better starting point.
