This SPACIOUS 2 BR 2 BA corner Condo is the largest at Kona Shores (1,000 sq ft of living space) and the only 2 BR 2 BA unit at this facility; it is referred to as "the Penthouse of Kona Shores" by long-term residents. This CORNER Condo has a good partial OCEAN VIEW (best at Kona Shores) from the living room and deck. It is in the most private section of the complex. Open the front door to a hardwood entry hall, then after passing the kitchen, step-down 5" to a living room surrounded by glass; look out to palms and gardens to the North--and the ocean and more landscaping to the West.
The living room has sliding glass doors to north and west portions of a 400 sq ft WRAP-AROUND LANAI. Enjoy eating and relaxing at the confluence of north and west decks--and taking in the views including tops of Golden-fruited palms complete with green day geckos. On the north lanai there is a shelver with swimming and snorkeling supplies, ice chest(s), and sometimes boogie boards. There are 3 wall air conditioners: one in the living room near the kitchen; one in the MA Bedroom; and one in the 2nd Bedroom.
In the MASTER BEDROOM you will find a King-size bed, 1 "Queen" wicker chair, one lounger chair, a chest of drawers, Hawaiian decorations and a glass slider and windows to the North landscaping, which drops off 30 feet to the back of a parking lot of the complex next door--no buildings interfering with your privacy in this bedroom! The Master Bath has a jacuzzi tub, make-up table and a large double closet. The SECOND BEDROOM is at the opposite end of the unit from the MaBR. It has two twin beds, a chest of drawers, and a glass slider-door onto the covered West deck (lanai). Clamps and linens are provided in the closet to convert the twin beds into a king-size bed. This bedroom is entered via a small foyer near the main door. At one end of the BR is a door to a FULL BATH having sink, high shelf-stacker for linens, and a tub-shower. The double-closet fills most of one wall.
A KITCHEN RE-MODEL was completed in June 2015, including NEW cabinets, GRANITE counter-tops, and new flooring. Inside the kitchen are a new refrigerator, a gas stove, a utility closet, and extra storage space at the entry end. A coffee-maker, microwave, 4 slice-toaster, and all dishes, pots and pans, and cooking and serving implements are provided. An eating bar is shared with the living room
There are small step-downs when entering the living room and the foyer to the 2nd Bedroom. ADDITIONAL SLEEPING is in the living room with a sofa-bed. Linens are provided in the MaBR closet or in 2nd BR closet. Eating outside with private views of tops of golden-fruited palms complete with green day geckos is pleasant and relaxful. This condo is a top floor (second floor) unit--no noise above you! The ASSIGNED PARKING SPOT is in a secluded section of the grounds directly down 1 1/2 stories. You'll have no trouble searching for a good parking spot! The commercial-style laundry is down-stairs on the way to your car.
The BBQ area and fantastic ocean-side POOL are on the Western border of the property; the pool is perhaps the best for SWIMMING (big enough) and VIEWS (waves breaking and great Sunsets) along all of Allii Dr. The Condo is at Kona Shores, which is 1 mile south of Kailua village (and immediately south of a larger complex, Sea Village) on the OCEAN-SIDE of Alii Drive. It is in the northwest corner of the facility--furthest from the road and nearest the ocean. The address is 75-6008 Alii Dr., Kailua-Kona, HI 96740. We also have a tropical garden 1 BR Condo in the same corner; and a private Studio Condo next door if you need additional accommodations.
Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking in unit or in Lanais.

This condo was perfect. We stayed June 27 - July 3, 2018. It was centrally located for adventures and has access to everything you would need. The welcome Kona coffee package was a nice treat and a must for each morning greeting of the geikos on the balcony. The owners keep the condo stocked with random things you need but don't think to bring or isn't optimal to bring with you. For example Cooley cups, ice Coolers, body boards, beach towels, and snorkels down to q tips, laundry soap (and facilities), reusable grocery bags and cooking seasonings. I give this place a 100 stars. It's dated a bit but absolutely perfect and has the Hawaii beach feel. We will return soon. Mahalo, The Beck Family. PS. The pool is fabulous and peek a boo view is amazing. if the islands are calling you,stay here you won't be disappointed.
Was very easy to work with and communicated well. The owner was also very easy to work with and quick to get back with me. The information was spot on accurate, nothing misleading. All the conveniences of home including everything you need to cook with, beach towels, and laundry. View was fantastic and the pool was nice also with a stunning view! The deck was a great place to sit, have breakfast, and once again, enjoy view. The master bedroom doesn’t have a door so if you have someone sleeping on the pull out in the living area, don’t plan on privacy but it was okay. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would stay here again with my family or come back with only my husband.
First of all I fully plan on returning to Kona and this will be the first people I will contact on availability. We loved it here. Been to Kona 7 times stayed at a number of different condos. This was not the newest but it was wonderful. Well taken care of, I have no complaints. Four adults plenty of room. Huge deck with a ocean view though a little limited but still nice. The walk is 1.5 miles to the first shopping. A few restaurants closer. This was my first time dealing with Vbero ( homesaway) and it was easy. Pool is right on the ocean great sunsets no whirlpool though. Sum it up .....very pleased
This was a beautiful condo. There were tons of pool and beach stuff. The decor was really pretty. The tub and shower in the master bath was the best I've ever used! The condo was well supplied: towels for shower, pool and beach; ziplocks, plenty of dishes, toaster and toaster oven. There was butter in the fridge and some waters, tupperware, plenty of pots, pans and cutlery. The glass on the floor was super cool. There were ceiling fans in every room. The master bed was super comfortable. Books for kids and adults were provided. There was a beautiful view from the lanai. This is an upstairs condo. I have 3 year old twins. Unfortunately they were super excited about getting to Hawaii and were running around a bit, causing some distress to the downstairs neighbors. We spoke to them and apologized and tried to keep them quieter after the first night. Hopefully we did not disrupt their vacation too much. We would totally stay here again were we to return to this island. It was a good home base for our first trip to Hawaii.
Home had everything for our short stay. Snorkel equipment, beach chairs/umbrella, beach towels. Very clean home. Beautiful hallway artwork imbedded into the floor which continues to one side. Every time we come up to it we want to jump over it! Fully equipped kitchen with all amenities including zip lock bags, Saran Wrap and aluminum foil. We had a great stay at this property.
The apartment is spacious, clean, and had everything we needed. There were snorkeling and beach gears available to use. The apartment complex is clean and quiet with 15 minutes walk to town and beach.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kona Shores in this condo. The balcony was so lovely and comfortable, the floor plan is intuitive and open, and my 4 year old absolutely loved the big tub in the master bedroom. The amenities, beach chairs, snorkel gear, children’s toys, etc. were a bonus. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, and the unit was nice and clean. We would definitely stay in this property again!
This condo has everything our family of four needed for a relaxing stay on the Big Island. Great location and wonderful view made it easy to either eat out or cook a meal in the kitchen and eat on the large deck. Would absolutely stay here again!
Everything was perfect. The condo was beautiful and we all enjoyed it immensely. My grandson is a big dinosaur fan and guess what? There was a slew of dinosaur figures to play with!! The condo was stocked with everything anyone could ask for. The Kona Shores has a pool, bbq, and a nice convenient outside entertaining area. If we ever come back to Kona, we'll definitely stay in this condo. The only thing was the tv. didn't work right, but we didn't need it anyway. The wifi info is on the bottom of the router. Tried to get Spectrum to change it to what was on the info Glen gave us, but they wouldn't change it unless the owner called them. Relayed info to owner so everything should be taken care of. However the condo was perfect.
The condo is very spacious, very well stocked with everything we needed (chairs, umbrellas, cooler, etc...) Very large lanai with beautiful view of the ocean, it was a great place to take the breakfast or our dinner . Our family really appreciated our stay and the condo is very comfortable for a family with his 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Nice kitchen fully equipped. Mahalo!
