Panoramic Ocean View Condo- Kona!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Walua Rd, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740, United States

The Space

Fantastic ocean views from every room. Walk in the front door and you are immediately struck with the beauty of it all! Terrific views and great furnishings.
This condo on the south fringe of downtown Kailua-Kona on The Big Island of Hawaii is within walking distance to all the hot spots. Yet it is a block off the main street so it's fairly quiet. On a hill and three stories up (no elevators) you look over the tops of the ocean front places. From the living area you can see the most spectacular panoramic ocean views from early morning to end of the day sunsets.
You will enjoy gentle ocean breezes as you watch from the bar height table and chairs next to the sliding glass door opening off the small balcony. There is also air conditioning behind the curtain in the living room for your comfort if you should need it.
This Kona Mansions condo #C-309 is located near the Coconut Grove Marketplace and across the street from the Royal Kona Resort, just a ways up Walua Rd. You may find Don's in the Royal Kona Resort & Huggo's on the Rocks next door a great place for 'happy hour' Mai Tais. Allot of these places have WiFi but we put WiFi in the condo too so you don't have to go out to get connected. It is secure with it's own password. Beach access from the unit is only a few steps away and about a five minute walk to Honel's beach.
Enjoy the Farmers Market and Historic District of town and all Alii Drive: its action and fantastic ocean front views, morning to night.

If you are looking for an affordable Ocean View condo look no further. It doesn't get any better!
Here is a review from another popular (website hidden) site.

You won't find a better view of the ocean unless your toes are in the sand and you have surf lapping at your ankles! Though the view makes this rental extra-special, it is a beautifully decorated, tastefully furnished Condo, that was comfortable in every way. The building is across the street from the beach access walk, so the sand and surf are literally a short walk away. The Alii Drive Shopping District is within walking distance, also, including many of the famous Kona restaurants and attractions. Walk a little further, and you'll find parasailing, scuba, submarine, whale watching, and other water-sport tours at the docks. We would definately return to this property, and will recommend it to people near and far. It is an ideal spot to spend a few days or a few weeks. It is one of the few vacations where all the surprises were pleasant ones!!! Enjoy YOUR stay!

For ocean views and location you can not get better value for your dollar! WiFi, AC, & Parking space Free! NO CLEANING FEE!!!

We also have Fern Grotto cottage in the tropical forest near Volcano National Park, Hilo and Pahoa. 30 minutes each way from the cottage makes it easy to see it all in just a couple of days! It takes 21/2 hours to get from Kona to Fern Grotto cottage! It is a Big Island so stay both sides. Our guests usually stay on the average of 2 or 3/nts in the cottage.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The condo was perfect and as described. I loved its proximity to the town center. It was very comfortable, clean, amd well appointed. I appreciated the comfy futon/couch with all the pillows as an added bonus. The view was beautiful and as everyone else said in their reviews, the complex was super quiet. I would definitely recommend it!!

  • A calm flat close to the city - a high contrast to our jungle cottage from the same hosts before.
    Again everything was perfectly thought of, even a little torch besides the key safe at the front door, snorkeling equipment, body boards, beach chairs etc.
    Comfy nights! Excellent view! Internet access!
    If you like towns like Kona (we do not), this is your perfect flat!

  • This place is great! Everything you need to cook and be comfortable is in the condo and everywhere you would want to go is right outside the front door. We would 100% stay here again!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Fern & Bruce’s place. Its truly a ‘Place with a Fantastic View’ that enticed us throughout our 4 day stay and is very comfortable! Their thoughtfulness is reflected everywhere – from snorkeling gear to children’s toys to books, sewing and first aid kits! Great proximity (short walking distance) to the ocean, restaurants, shopping and many organized trips.

    Thanks Fern & Bruce – we look forward to a future Kona visit at your place!

  • Very well located and very complete equipment. Good value for money. I would stay there again.

  • Die sehr schoene Wohnung war fuer uns ideal, da sie genau zwischen der "University of the Nations" (YWAM) und dem Meer liegt.

    In nur ca. 5 Gehminuten ist der nahe gelegene kleine Strand oder in ca. 10 Gehminuten die Flaniermeile mit zahlreichen Restaurants und Geschaeften erreicht.

    Die Wohnung entsprach in allen Punkten den Angaben der Vermieter und war bestens, mit allem ausgestattet, was man fuer einen tollen Urlaub braucht.

    Wir haben es sehr genossen am Morgen bei offener (Balkon) Schiebetuere zu Fruehstuecken und den wundervollen Meerblick zu geniessen. Besser geht's fast nicht.

    Am Abend haben wir, wenn wir gerade in der Wohnung waren, den genialen Sonneuntergang genossen. Das ist echtes Urlaubsgefuehl.

    Ich wuerde einfach sagen: Jederzeit wieder!!!

    The very nice apartment was ideal for us as it is situated exactly between the "University of the Nations" (YWAM) and the sea.

    In just 5 minutes walk to the nearby small beach or in about 10 minutes' walk to the promenade with numerous restaurants and shops is reached.

    The apartment corresponded in all respects with the particulars of the owner and was well equipped with everything you need for a great vacation.

    We really enjoyed the morning at open (balcony) sliding door to have breakfast and enjoy the wonderful sea view. It's almost better not.

    In the evening we have when we were in the apartment, enjoying the brilliant sunset. This is real holiday feeling.

    I would simply say: Every time again!

  • Our experience was more than we could have hoped for. Fern and Bruce provided all of the comforts of home and more. The attention to detail in providing a comfortable stay surpasses that of many major resorts. This is a great location that is close to the heart of Ali'i Drive while allowing for a quiet escape away from the crowds and noise. We would wholeheartedly recommend this location to anyone who was planning a trip to the Big Island.

  • This condo is a wonderful deal! It is scrupulously clean, wonderfully equipped (including beach bag, snorkeling equipment and body boards), and the ocean view out of the window is beautiful. There is a fat file on the counter with lists of all kinds of things to do. Fern called right back after I had contacted the building manager about a brief power outage, and was very helpful.

    August 2013
  • Fern and Bruce's condo is very conveniently located within Kailua-Kona close to shopping and restaurants, yet away from the traffic and congestion of Ali'i Drive and Kuakini Highway. The condo was comfortable and equipped with everything needed. The pool was the perfect size for young children to enjoy themselves. We felt their condo is an excellent value, especially for families.

    July 2013
  • Really lovely location, within a block of the main drag (acai bowls, kava, and coffee, oh my). The condo was immaculate, and there were a lot of thoughtful add-ons like maps, a guest book, some tea and coffee, and a book of instructions. Waking up to a view of the ocean and palm trees was great. We were sad to leave.

Bruce and Fern have lived on the Hilo side of the "Big Island or Hawaii Island" in Hawaiian Acres since 2000. Fern Grotto cottage vacation rental is only 7 miles away. In 2011 they bought a condo on the west side in Kailua- Kona at Kona Mansions V. It has been a pleasure for them to host quests on both sides of the " Big Island". Bruce and Fern see to both Fern Grotto cottage and their Kona condo themselves. They are happy knowing guests arrive to a clean and welcoming atmosphere. Special touches given with care for their quests are present throughout. It takes a good 21/2 hours to travel from one side of the Island to the other and with so much to see on both. Bruce and Fern suggest to anyone coming for the 1st time to stay both sides. More time in Kona if you are a sun-seeker, enjoy walking past shops and restaurants with great ocean breezes, views and white sandy beaches. On the East side stay at least 2-3 days to see the Volcano National Park, waterfalls, rain forest (and yes Fern Grotto cottage does have a lava tube). Also a fun thing to do at night is to go to Volcano and view Halemaumau Crater from both the lodge and museum along the Kilauea Crater rim. Be sure to bring a fleece jacket for those cool evenings. Bruce and Fern provide umbrellas and flashlights at the cottage. Just some of those thoughtful touches your hosts think of! Bruce and Fern have Fern Grotto cottage vacation rental on the east side and now the Kona Mansions condo also a vacation rental on the west side for everyone to enjoy!
