About This Listing
Beautiful and quiet condo complex located about 5 miles out of town. The Keauhou Punahele condos are the last units on Alii road, so it's a very peaceful, quiet area. Golf course, ocean, and sunsets are right in your backyard.
Our family has vacationed in Kona for over 35 years. Every year we make sure we stay at the Keauhou Punahele Condos. Kailua-Kona and the Keauhou area have truly become our second home. We purchased this unit after staying in it ourselves because it is a first class unit, and the location is optimal with a great view and soft ocean breeze. We are happy to share this Hawaiian experience with you.
The Keauhou Punahele condos are well-maintained and are constructed of concrete, allowing for a quiet environment. The whole complex is fairly small, so there are not a lot of crowds, traffic, or noise. It has been our experience that visitors that stay here like to return because it has a small family atmosphere. There are many repeat visitors, owners, and long term vacationers.
This location is ideal. They are the last condos along Alii drive, surrounded by The Kona Country Club Golf Course, and the Keauhou Pier which is the launching point of many wonderful excursions. You will see turtles swimming in this bay as well as kayakers and stand up paddle boarders (boards & kayaks are available to rent for a small fee). Because they are the last units, you won’t get much car traffic, and there are great places to walk, bike, or jog in both directions. Although these units are not on the water, a very short walk takes you to the sea side to watch beautiful sunsets. They are also just a short walk to the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa where you will watch manta rays feeding at night, while dining and listening to live music at the ocean side Rays on the Bay restaurant.
This 1200 sq ft. unit has a prime location in the center of the complex. Parking is never a problem as your private spot is at your door and is free to you. The view from this unit is ideal. It overlooks the pool without the noise. The private lanai has new furniture for your relaxation, and has access from the living room and the master bedroom. This unit faces the Pacific Ocean, creating a stunning backdrop to lush palms and crystal pool. One of our favorite attributes is the tree that is located right outside the master bedroom lanai. We get to see and hear the birds chirping, as well as various geckos climbing around. This unit has been meticulously kept up over the years and will truly feel like your home away from home as it did for us.
The master bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed with access to the lanai, and ocean views. This allows for a great breeze during the day or night. The master bath is beautiful after a recent remodel with tile counter tops, a block shower stall, and a walk-in closet.
The second bedroom has two single beds with brand new mattresses, a dresser to store clothes, and a large closet. The second bath has a recently remodeled vanity, along with a full shower, and full sized, brand new washer and dryer and all laundry/cleaning necessities.
Enjoy a spacious living area with cozy, contemporary couches, and a large high-definition flat screen TV in living room and the master bedroom with cable, and free wifi for internet needs. The living area opens up to the lanai adding to the enjoyment of your morning Kona coffee or evening Mai Tai while enjoying the evening breeze, chirping birds, and the striking sunsets. The long Lanai has lounge chairs, a new bistro style table to relax at, and a barbecue for grilling your favorite local fish or meat. This complex is one of few places in the area that allows grilling on your own lanai.
The remodeled kitchen includes new cabinets, granite counter tops and tile flooring. All new stainless steel appliances were installed July of 2014. It has all the amenities one needs! There is also a bar area with two teak bar stools facing the lanai to be able to enjoy your morning coffee inside with the same amazing views. All areas of this condo have ceiling fans to keep you cool, as well as an extra standing fan in both bedrooms.
Just a few steps away from this unit, enjoy the quiet gated swimming pool and Jacuzzi area, which also has a “log house” for your shaded needs as well as day and evening social gatherings. Bathrooms and shower are available at the pool as well.
Keauhou Punahele (Keauhou area) is nicely located away from the hustle and bustle of town, but close enough to walk to the Keauhou Shopping Center which has restaurants, Keauhou Cinemas, KTA grocery store (ATM inside), Long’s Drugs, US Post Office, and an Urgent Care medical facility to name a few. There is also a tennis complex next door with numerous rental courts and equipment.
There are many excursions to choose from in Kona such as Para-sailing in the Kailua-Kona Pier, visiting Volcanoes National Park, Helicopter rides around craters and lava flows, snorkeling at the near-by Kahaluu beach to see a large variety of fish and turtles, or joining our favorite Fair Wind snorkeling excursion to the famous Captain Cook Monument at Kealakekua bay. Take the day to drive around the island, visit Parker Ranch to ride horses, or drive to Hilo. The big Island is the best place to find a wide variety of activities for the curious adventurer or tourist, or to just lay back and relax without the hustle and bustle of a busy city. There is so much to do and see on this island, we encourage any visitor to search the web for ideas, discounts and scheduling.

Aloha! Enjoy your stay!
Brenda's place was beautiful and accurately described. It was clean and comfortable for four girls. The living room could easily host a fifth person. The kitchen was prety well-stocked. Amenities such as beach towels and body boards made the stay much more convenient. The balcony was a nice touch; a lovely place to watch the sunset.
I would totally recommend this place but for future renters, keep in mind there's no a/c and the place is about 15 minutes from downtown Kona.
Pretty awesome place to be spending your vacation at. The condo has been stocked with pretty much everything you would ever need while on vacation. Brenda was extremely good about picking up the phone to handle the one mini emergency we ran into (she sounded groggy - so I must've woken her up - so props to her for not leaving us stranded!)
We totally were spoiled by the stay at Brenda's place. This is a great retreat! Quiet and out of town yet close to shopping and night life if you want it . Amazing place, clean as a whistle and a great pool .
Super Apartment, in unmittelbarer zum Golfplatz, der bei meinem Aufenthalt allerdings gerade renoviert wurde. Ansonsten ganz am hinteren Ende von Kona, so dass ein Mietwagen sehr empfehlenswert ist.
Das Condo ist sauber und gemütlich ausgestattet. Die Küche bietet alles was man nur irgendwie benötigt, so dass einer Eigenverpflegung absolut nichts im Wege steht. Auch Waschmaschine und Trockner sind vorhanden. Wem auf Hawaii zu kalt ist, kann sich noch in den beheizten Jakuzzi setzen....
