2 bedroom, 2 baths, sleeps 4 max 6
Mike and Cher live in the Rocky Mountains outside of Denver Colorado . We love relaxing at our home in Colorado, our Hawaii condo and our new home in Florida as well as working on projects at all 3 places. When we have the opportunity we also love traveling the world. We are both retired now which give us the time to do the things we love.
Mike/Cher purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Mike/Cher chose Kahaluu Bay
We bought this property over 14 years ago as we loved quiet peaceful relaxing setting close to the beach. The weather seems perfect to us. Never ultra hot with the breezes blowing and no snow! We looked at several locations before settling on our condo. We chose the Big Island as we like to get away from the major crowds, but still have the opportunity to do some tourist activities. The Big Island has golf, swimming, snorkeling, diving, great beaches (with white, black and green sand), a variety of boat trips, luaus, free hula shows, waterfalls, ancient petroglyphs, beautiful varied scenery and vistas, an Astronomy Center, tropical flowers, great coffee, shopping, galleries, zip lines, star gazing, Farmers Markets, Botanical Gardens, lava tubes, great restaurants, and of course the volcano. There is so much to do and we never have enough time, so I allows enjoy returning again and again.
What makes this Condo unique
I always feel at peace when I step through the front door. I'm not sure if it is the relaxing colors, the flowers all around the condo, the trees blowing in the breeze, the birds singing especially in the morning, or just relaxing over breakfast on the lanai. I also love going to the salt water pool in the morning or perhaps trying my hand at a game of pool or just running around after balls on the tennis court, and walking down to the beach.

Delightful and Well Stocked Condo
The condo is lovely with a large washer and drier, dishwasher coffee maker and grinder,, Every form of beach and snorkel gear, water shoes in assorted sizes, a plethora of everyday grocery items, I was able to cook without having to buy all sorts of misc items like salt pepper napkins spaghetti noodles and so on. The air works well in combination with the overhead fans. Next time we visit the Big Island this will be the first location we will look for. Thank You.
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at our condo.
We had the best time ever!
condo was clean and completely stocked with everything you would need for your stay. We had full access to the pool, beaches right across the street. Full amenities!
Thank you for the kind review. Very happy that you enjoyed your stay.
This was a great place to stay, it was so well equipped there wasn’t a single thing we missed not having with us from home. In fact it had more stuff than we have in our own house.
We especially valued the water equipment, our son made full use of the life vest and all of the buckets and spades.
If we returned to Hawaii, we would def stay here again!
Thank you for your kind review. We do try to make our guests time away from home enjoyable. Glad to hear we were successful.
Great Place, Great Value
We enjoyed our stay here very much. The condo was pretty clean and had all the necessary toys for great time at the beach. The family also enjoyed our evenings hanging out shooting pool or relaxing in the pool/hot tub. The owners were very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.
Location was excellent
The location is right on Alii Drive right across from an excellent beach Magic Sands and only a few minutes from downtown Kona. There is great snorkeling just down the street and is not far from the best place to get all your groceries and gas Costco. Costco has the best prices for gas a whole $1 less per gallon and groceries 24 eggs were $3 vs 12 eggs for $4 at other stores. This condo with a full kitchen allows you to save a lot of money on food. Eating out is crazy expensive think $16 for a tostada. The condo is also nice because any pool / beach gear you need is provided. Snorkels, chairs, boggie boards, etc. Also the couch in the living room pulls out into a bed. If you need an extra bed like we did. The song birds in the morning are a nice perk also since the empty jungle lot next to this complex seems to have tons of these birds along with orange and green lizards that pop up from time to time. The pool here is also very nice but the beach is even better. A good affordable food options were McDonalds, and Koko’s Wraps in Captain Cook. Excellent tacos that were only $6 and were amazing. Also get some local Hawaiian grass fed beef it’s really tasty and one of the cheaper meat options from the store. Also don’t miss the many farmer markets, apple bananas and leeche were some of our favorite local fruit options. Snorkeling was great at 2 Step highly recommend many turtles there. Also a trip to Hilo to see the waterfalls and lava tubes is highly recommended. We used Gypsy Guide app for a trip around the island which we really enjoyed. The volcano tour is fun too but makes for a really long day so start early. Overall it would be hard to beat this location for a stay on the big island. It was a great jumping off point for lazy days and busy days. Aloha.
I could not get into my unit with the access code provided I called Mike/Cher twice, emailed once and messaged on VBRO and to this day no reply. Once we got in the pool key was not where indicated (note on frig) internet did not work. After many hours on the above issues I saw that the internet modem was unplugged. Also a wet/smelly washcloth left in the washer and a load of towels not put away.
Loved the location as the beach is just steps away. Nice pool, hot tub and pool table.
Very disappointed in the communication and the condition of the place when we arrived.
Across the street from ocean / beach.
Other Activities: whale watching
