The Space

Enjoy a breathtaking ocean view while sipping delightful Kona coffee from the comfort of your private lanai. Our clean, well maintained condo is a fully furnished 2 bedroom-2 bath unit. It includes a full kitchen, living/dining room area and lanai. The kitchen has a pantry, plenty of cabinet space and all major appliances: dishwasher, fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and blender. There is also plenty of dishware, cookware and silverware to make meal preparation easy when dining in. Both bedrooms have queen sized beds, linens, full closets with hangers, dressers and nightstands. Ceiling fans are included in all rooms to circulate the soothing ocean breezes. The 2nd bathroom also has a washer/dryer. The property amenities include an elevator, a private pool with an ocean view, BBQ, and 1 assigned parking space. The grounds are well kept with trees, plants and flowers that attract colorful birds. Spectacular sunsets are included each evening for free. Our condo is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood within a few miles from the town of Kailua and close to various shopping centers. There is a wonderful walking/biking trail just blocks from the condo which many guests have enjoyed to welcome the start of each morning. A variety of nearby public beaches lend themselves to snorkeling, surfing, picnicing or just to hear the rythmn of ocean waves or view the sea creatures basking in the sun. We also have brochures of possible adventures to contemplate and even the name and number of a booking agent which serves our guests with answers to questions and suggestions for island things to do. Our intention is to provide a relaxing place to spend time to really enjoy the magic and spirit of Hawaii.

  • We stayed at Paulette's for two delightful weeks. It was very well equipped and roomy. The open lanai was very nice and airy. The washer and dryer are nice so you don't have to take too much clothes. the pool area was clean and sunny. Paulette was quite solicitous and called us to check on status. the location is convenient for Kona, just a few yards from Hwy 11 the main road on the island and close to a popular walking path for morning strolls. It was about 10 min to downtown Kona. The view was great. The only downside was that we had to leave.

  • My boyfriend and I just got back from an amazing 6-night stay at this condo. The condo is beautiful, with an open layout. The entire back wall is open to the air and has an awesome view out on to the ocean. The first morning we were there we spotted some whales from the balcony and it was so great to view them with the binoculars provided in the condo. The condo is outfitted with everything you might need for your vacation. We cooked breakfast in the kitchen every day and made coffee. The washer/dryer are super useful for washing your beach clothes. The location is also great, a short drive from downtown Kona. We would love to stay here again on our next trip to the Big Island!

  • This is a beautiful, open, clean, and well maintained condo about 3 miles south of the heart of Kailua Kona. It was nice having a full kitchen with everything we needed to cook our meals.
    We enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai each day where we had a nice view of the ocean. Rooms have ceiling fans and comfortable full size beds. The bathrooms are spacious and clean.
    Paulette was wonderful and she was very responsive when I emailed or called. She also compiled a nice binder full of useful information on tours, restaurants, and points of interest on the island. It was helpful when we wanted to find activities in the area.
    I would highly recommend this condo for a family of 4. I will stay here again on my next trip to the island. Thank you Paulette.

  • C'était ma première expérience avec AirBnb et je suis très satisfaite. Le processus de réservation a été facile et j'ai eu plusieurs communications avec Paulette. Le condo est bien situé, un peu en dehors de la zone touristique de Kona mais à proximité de l'autoroute. La vue du sur l'océan est superbe. La surprise a été de constater que l'appartement est ouvert sur l'extérieur mais nous nous sommes vites habitués. Le condo était propre, bien équipé. Il y avait des articles de cuisine et des articles de ménage. Nous avons adoré notre semaine et nous avons trouvé tout ce que nous avions besoin pour passer un séjour agréable.

  • This is a prime spot if you're looking to stay on kona side. The ocean view is great, and the house is close to Kailua, but not in the super touristy part of it. Highly recommend that anyone stay here.

  • Our stay in Kona was a terrific experience. The island offered many new and exciting things for Hawaiian newcomers. The condo was great. It was neat and clean. The view each morning was spectacular. The neighbors were very friendly and accomodating. We would recommend this experience to anyone. We found everything just as advertized.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Paulette’s condo. The space was perfect and everything we needed was right there. There is off-street covered parking, easy access to the main Kona highway, a convenient washer and dryer and a well-supplied kitchen. The condo has lots of current magazines, flyers and books about local sites and activities. A unique feature of this condo is the open wall to the lanai and thus, to the outdoor sights and sounds. Paulette is a gracious host and most congenial. She responded promptly to our requests and questions and was eager to make our stay as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Mission accomplished! Overall, our twelve day stay in Kona was superb! 2/2013 (We did NOT miss the absence of a TV, but enjoyed good conversations, reading and spending time at the pool, when not on-the-go.)

    Response from Paulette:

    Thank you so much for the wonderful review!

  • We stayed at the condo for five nights over the New Year holiday. The trip was great and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We had the pool area to ourselves a lot of the time, we made use of the barbeque and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you might need to prepare dinner. The beds are very comfortable and we enjoyed falling asleep in the fresh air with the island breezes cooling us.

    Kona is about ten minutes by car away and it's pretty easy to get a taxi if you want to go out for a few mai tais and you don't have a designated driver.

    Paulette was brilliant - very responsive and helpful. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return on future trips to the Big Island.

About
I am one member of a family of six who shares in ownership of our Hawaiian condo. We are all from Montana but consider Kona our second home. We love the mountains, outdoors, sunshine, warm weather, fun times and the ocean. Hawaii offers all of those. It gives us pleasure to share our condo with people who want a place to rest, relax and retreat into the spirit and gentle ways of our island. We are family friendly and appreciate others who are thoughtful about sharing our home. As our guest, we try to make your stay informative, enjoyable and relaxing. One of our favorite things to do is to sit on the lanai soaking in the magical views of the ocean. We are sky mile fans and make as many trips over as possible. Probably our motto would be: Treat others as you would like to be treated. Aloha
