Breezy Kona condo next to the beach w/shared pool, hot tub & ocean views

You'll love coming home to this beautiful Kona condo that's just steps from the beach. You can take a morning dip in the pool and watch the waves lap up onto the rocks or enjoy sunset views on the seaside loungers. With 2 lanais, ample parking, excellent WiFi, and several updates, this is an incredible spot to spend your Kona vacation. Here, you'll have access to a shared tennis court, a ping-pong table, a fully equipped kitchen, and a shared hot tub!

The ocean! You have an incredible set of snorkeling spots (gear in the closet) just past the pool. Take the path through the complex and you'll find a little beachfront which is a perfect place to step into the water and look for honu. The heart of downtown Kona is a one-mile walk or drive down Ali'i drive which is all oceanfront. There you'll find local hangouts like Huggo's, Humpy's, and Laverne's along with nationally known chains, such as Outback and Bubba Gump. For a more romantic night, Jackie Rey's Ohana grill is less than a mile away on Kuakini Highway and features local food and a good happy hour. If you need to get out on the water, you can get a charter snorkel or fishing boat at the harbor about five and a half miles up the Queen K highway.

Nice to have snorkeling gear.
Manager response:
Hi Gary, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments about having snorkeling gear to our local manager for review, and we appreciate guests’ preferences as a means to improve continually. We look forward to hosting your next stay.

This was the best vacation home the have ever stayed in. Condo was very clean on our arrival. Condo was decorated very cute. We were supplied with boogie boards and snorkeling equipment. Kitchen was well equipped. The host left us a gift packet with coffees and treats. The pool was perfect temperature, clean and well kept. Lots of chairs around the pool area and spa. Residents were friendly and helpful. Close to restaurants and night life. The only con was the lack of parking inside the complex. We had to park several blocks away on several occasions. We will definitely be back.
REGINALD H. Jan 2023
Although the decor was dated there was true Hawaiian authenticity throughout the unit. The shade blinds over the sliders worked well mitigating the sun’s rays. In addition the bamboo window slides gave privacy. The ceiling fan in the bathroom is a great idea and served to dry things quickly. The water view from the property front, although a challenge to enter with “High Surf Warnings”, was lovely to look at, but no beach, period. The Queen Bed was very comfortable. The place was clean.
Manager response:
Hi, Reginald, thank you for providing us with this valuable feedback, we are so glad that you had a wonderful time at our beautiful home.

Loved watching sunset from the patio with the neighbors. Loved the manager, who was ever present and so helpful! Loved the lush gardens. So close to downtown but you'd never know it.
Anna P. Sep 2022
The place was really nice. We loved the condo. The kitchen was well appointed, the bed comfortable and we had everything we needed. However, a component of our decision to stay here was the availability of the pool. It was unavailable for our entire 2 week stay, which was quite a disappointment and significantly impacted the quality of our experience. Additionally, we found numerous examples of conflicting information about the condo in the materials provided. The hard copy information left in the condo named 11 am as the check out time, while we were apparently expected to be out by 10 am. In addition, some info asked us to do laundry and strip the bed, while others specified it was not necessary. I would think the host would be more motivated provide consistent and accurate information to guests. We were in the process of packing up when cleaners showed up on our last day. Overall great experience, but with significant room for improvement around communication and availability of facilities.
Manager response:
Anna, thank you for your review. It is our pleasure that you had the best time here. Our sincerest apologies for the pool closure, we were not aware of this. Usually, we have a notice from the HOA so we could notify our guests in advance. As for the check-out time, it is 10 am and will update any information where states otherwise. We hope you will give us another chance to provide you with a better experience the next time you stay with us!

This was our first stay here in this condo and with using Vacasa. The condo was comfortable, had all of the amenities that served our needs, nicely upgraded and in a great location. We loved the easy and hassle free check in and check out process, no need to stop at a front desk or visit to a lobby. Vacasa Management was a very caring, attentive and communicative company. Our experience with Vacasa was excellent as you can tell they strive to provide you with great customer service. We really enjoyed our stay at this condo.
Sonia L. Jan 2022
The moment we stepped in, the condo smelled very clean and we immediately felt very comfortable. We thought it was a great location as it was pretty much central to everything we wanted to do, north and south of Kona. Easy checkin and checkout instructions, and we would 100% rebook this home again upon the next time coming back to Kona. The only con was that upon our arrival there was no blanket for the sofa bed and no laundry detergent pods to be found, but luckily we had brought some personal blanket and laundry detergent with us.
G Michael E. Jan 2020
Home and grounds were excellent. Good distance from downtown-you can even walk. Will surely consider this place when we come to Kona in the future....
Emily H. Jan 2020
This is a great spot. Quiet and family friendly. The bed in this particular condo was not the best but, we made the most of it and enjoyed our stay to the fullest!
KIMMY O. Jan 2020
This condo is in really nice condition and very clean. It has a very classy feel and was very tastefully decorated. I would stay here again and refer it to my friends and family as well.
Joanne M. Oct 2019
I loved the location. The place was clean and comfortable. They offer snorkeling gear and beach chairs, coolers, etc. I would stay here again.

Beautiful condo stocked with a little of everything. Enjoyed sitting out on the lanai admiring the tropical landscape. Great sunsets from poolside. Near many beaches and close to downtown Kailua-Kona. Would definitely stay again!
