Photos and Description of the Kailua-Kona vacation condo rental

Studio in 10 unit 1963 Kama`aina Style Building

Guests often comment that our studio exceeded their expectations. We imagine it's because of the very recent extensive renovation (finished April 2015). It was a complete renovation and all work was done by professionals. The studio has a Good-sized and Functional Kitchen, a Direct View to the Beach, Free and Convenient parking, and of course, WiFi. There's an Outdoor BBQ at the Beach Park across the street, or a table top electric one you can use on the lanai. The beach also has a VolleyBall court. And the Kona Trolley can take you the few miles north to the heart of Kailua-Kona too.

Dolphins play just offshore at La`aloa Bay (often called Magic Sands Beach) and are great fun to watch. This winter a mama humpback and her calf lolled just off-shore for weeks! People were swimming out to see them, but as you can imagine, the life-guards at the beach "reminded" them that it is illegal to approach wildlife.

This studio is just far enough out of town to see stars at night, yet, close enough for easy access to all that Kailua-Kona offers. It's 4 miles from the Kailua Pier, and about 3 miles to where town starts. And, they are flat miles. You could easily take the Kona Trolley one direction and walk the other.

The Venetian plastered walls and ceiling, as well as the wood floors, give a wonderful feel to the studio while the vintage Rattan furniture is charming and comfortable. The natural edge Mango Wood Bar has the view! And there is a full-sized desk, in case you need that. The Queen-Sized Bed is very comfortable --just as Goldilocks would like -- not too firm, not too soft. The kitchen has local hardwood (Silky Oak) cabinets, granite counter tops, plenty of storage, nice/sharp knives, nice/heavy stainless cook-ware--basically anything you would need. A full-sized refrigerator makes longer stays easy. Coffee maker, french press, coffee grinder, microwave, toaster-oven, regular toaster, all stainless pans, and plenty of kitchen ware are all there for your use. There are even cloth napkins and Grohe faucets in the kitchen and bath. Strong ceiling fans that really move the air -- one in the main area and one in the kitchen. There is also an iron and a small ironing board--just in case you need to look spiffy!

There are a few sets of snorkel gear so you can check out the clear Kona waters and the super-colorful tropical fishes. We do suggest you bring your own, or rent from a local company, if you are serious about your equipment. You can quickly walk to at least 3 spots to get in (and more importantly, get out) of the ocean. You'll be seeing reef fish almost immediately--and as you go out a bit it only gets better. Kahala`u Beach Park is considered by many the best close snorkel spot and we would call it Snorkeling 101 because it's inside a reef. Personally, we prefer going in at Magic Sands (or just slightly north or south of Magic Sands) because the water is deeper, the coral is less disturbed, and the fish are just as plentiful. You can decide which you like better!

Since we are on-island residents and "neat-nics", we are proud of the fact that there are few places for bugs to get inside, nor are there many places for them to live. In our recent renovation, we were amazed how many nooks, crannies, and cracks we eliminated.

Check us out, we could be your best lei-over yet!

Also: To be in compliance with Hawaii State Law (Act 204 Session Laws Hawaii State Legislature, 2015) our Hawaii Transient Accommodations Tax I. D. No. is TA-116-308-1728-01.

Kailua-Kona is a treasure trove of recreational opportunities. Get in the water for snorkeling, surfing, body-surfing, boogie-boarding, or plain old swimming right across the street. And if the Magic sand is also on vacation, go north or south on foot for 2 minutes and you have other get-in/get-out locations.

A few extra notes: * The 2 ceiling fans add an extra breeze, if needed. * While there are no laundry facilities on site--there is a great full-service laundromat (Tykes) in Kailua-Kona. They charge by the pound for a wash, dry, and fold service. * You will want to touch these walls! They are so smooth as they were professionally crafted with Italian plaster made from limestone and marble dust. Thanks Dustin--beautiful work!
