2 bathroom Sleeps
This lovely, spacious condo at Kahalu'u Beach (Turtle Beach) has incredible Ocean and Sunset views, and is the perfect escape for guests wanting easy access to swimming, snorkeling, surfing and golfing. Ours is an unit on the ground floor in the back with views of the ocean and coastline (no stairs and away from street noise).
Our complex, the Beach Villas, is the newest development in Kailua-Kona and offers off-street parking, an infinity pool overlooking the ocean, a cozy lava rock spa, a gas barbecue and a large picnic area with tables, chairs and lounge chairs for family gatherings. The Keikei area of the Infinity Pool is great for kids to play in or simply for all to sit and sunbathe in the shallow water. Kahalu'u Beach Park across the street is well protected by sea walls, and provides for gentle swimming and a tide pool for kids. Sea turtles and colorful fish of various species are so plentiful making this spot the snorkeling paradise in the Big Island. Immediately to the north past the swimming/snorkeling are the rolling surfs where surf boards may be rented. Guests may use the boogie boards stocked in our unit, saving the trouble of renting boards. Cooler, umbrella, beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel gears and sand toys are all available to guests without extra charges. However, to assure better fits, guests may bring their own gears. Golfing in the Kona Country Club is only 1/2 mile down the road. Its 4 star Ocean Course offers a spectacular setting of lush, wide fairways, and the sparkling Pacific at one's feet. Its 4-1/2 star Mountain Course overlooking the ocean offers a more challenging terrain with Ancient Hawaiian rock slides running through the center. Its Vista Restaurant has a spectacular view and serves customers breakfast and lunch. Shopping and restaurants (including the famous Sam Choy's Kai Lanai) are all within a short walking distance, making our condo a comfortable home away from home for guests. Our condo also offers a full cooking kitchen. Costco is a convenient stop on the way from the airport where guests may stock up for groceries.

Great experience for our family. The ad was accurate, and if anything, understates the positives of this property. The host was responsive and helpful. The property and accompanying amenities were more than we could of hoped for.

Everything about this location was good

We arrived to the big island late and we’re tired from a very long day. We had check in instructions but they didn’t work. We called both numbers listed for help. After conversation we finally were able to get the key and open the door. Lawrence was very apologetic for the miscommunication. The condo was quaint and tastefully decorated. It is in need of a deep clean and some minor maintenance.

I have stayed in at least 10 rentals along Alii Drive in Kona for the last 30 years and I have never rented one in which I was disappointed until now. Upon entering the condo, I was very unhappy to see the dirty condition of the bedroom carpets. I contacted the property manager (owner?) and his excuse was that it is going to be replaced but didn’t happen before our arrival. I’m not sure why it wasn’t cleaned, but it is gross. Maybe someone had a pet because there are dirty marks al over the carpets.
The furnishings are very uncomfortable. The couch and chair are old and sagging in the middle. The master bed is a foam pad with old pillows. The dishwasher is filthy and full of mold. I ran it, thinking it would clean it, but apparently it needs heavy duty cleaning. The patio furniture, however, is great.
The beach chairs are torn and falling apart. One even had some old used bandades in the drink holders. He told me that the housekeeper would bring some new ones but she was actually out of town so we never got them.
The showers are large walk-in tile showers. They really need to install some safety bars. There is no place to put your soap unless you want it on the ground so we improvised and used a plastic cup. When we arrived, there was no bath soap provided and limited supplies such as 4 trash bags, 2 very skinny rolls of paper towels, 3 rolls of toilet paper and a tiny sponge which was cut in half. I had to buy laundry soap since there was so little available. And you are asked to wash the beach towels before you leave. More soap would have been nice too.
Air conditioner is an extra $15 per day with 17% tax added. Luckily it was comfortable with just the ceiling fans. The condo does not get direct sunlight in October so it stayed cool.
The location of this condo is great, right across the street from a great snorkel beach. IF the owner cleaned things up, it would be a nice place to stay.

We stayed at this condo for a week and were 100% satisfied. The kitchen was well stocked for making some meals in and we were amazed at the amount and variety of beach/water supplies, from plenty of beach towels to a beach umbrella and even snorkeling gear! My biggest worry about hotels/rentals is the cleanliness and the condo was super clean. The host, Lawrence, was great about communicating what we needed to do for arrival and departure, and even provided a really handy list of recommended restaurants (which we used and fully agree with!). Lastly, I cannot say enough about this location. The view from the lovely patio was beautiful. We were close to everything, plus had a great beach right across the street that is perfect for snorkeling. I absolutely recommend this condo and hope to stay again some day.
