Kona Makai is a beautiful ocean front garden complex with immaculately maintained Hawaiian native plants. It is a very quiet complex with tennis courts, pool, spa, exercise rooms and covered parking (great for keeping the car cool). We have WIFI in the common areas, even down by the ocean, and beautiful snorkeling reefs right at the property with access (except in high surf). Watch dolphins, sunsets and whales from the great pool area on the ocean with spa and barbecues. Relax and barbecue your fish down by the ocean. Kailua-Kona is also the home of the famous IRONMAN competition in October.

If you don't have transportation, it is a very convenient 10 to 15 minute walk to town and well known restaurants like Bubba Gumps. It is also minutes from a famous snorkeling beach with a sea wall, lifeguard, and sea turtles. Enjoy shopping in town and at the open market. There is also a trolley that runs along Ali'i Drive which takes you to the shops, movies and restaurants. In town you'll find many tour companies that will take you to various points of interest on the island.

This ground floor condo has NO STAIRS and has easy access to parking. It is set towards the quiet end of the complex. It features a front lanai with great direct views of the ocean and the beautiful gardens. The lanai has a dining set and very comfortable chairs for sunset watching. The bedroom is equipped with ONE QUEEN BED and there is ONE QUEEN SLEEPER SOFA in the living room. The kitchen has a dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrigerator as well as a stack washer and dryer. There is A/C and ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom. A/C is rarely needed as the mountain/ sea breezes flow right through the unit keeping you comfortable most days. Private WIFI is available in the unit and shared WIFI is throughout the common areas of the complex. There is no smoking in the unit and Kona Makai complex is a non-smoking complex.

Hawaii, United States · Joined in May 2013

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I fell in love with Hawaii when I came to visit in 1968. I always had a love for Hawaii as my grandmother was born right here on the Big Island back in 1887. My sister also lives in the Islands (Honolulu, Oahu). It took my husband and I until 2003 to move here. We live down by South Point (the southern most point in the USA) here on the Big Island. Kona is our fun retreat away from our farm chores. We decided to rent our condo out to others to enjoy the Kona life when we are not using it.

Why the Owner Chose Kona Makai:
This complex is right on Ali'i Drive. Walking distance to Kona's famous restaurants, shopping and beaches.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This complex has beautifully maintained topical gardens and direct access to the ocean. In calm surf, access the tide pools right at the complex.

Response rate: 100%(past 90 days)
Response time: within an hour
