The fully equipped kitchen and dining bar is open to the living room. The flat screen television is built into the dining bar and on a wall mounted bracket making it convenient to watch from either the living room or bedroom.

Our condo is designed to make your stay on the island enjoyable. Along with the normal items, there are beach towels, beach mats, extra pillows/linens/blankets, beach umbrella, cooler, and an island guide book to make getting around the island easier.

Only a short walk from the center of town, the amenities at Kona Shores include a pool RIGHT ON THE CLIFFS OVERLOOKING THE OCEAN. You can watch the sunset or gaze at the stars while you are swimming in the pool. The Kailua-Kona Coast has the most colorful and spectacular orange, pink, lavender sunsets in Hawaii. Maybe you’ll be lucky and spot the famous ‘Green Flash” at sunset, as the sun dips behind the horizon. On the way to the pool there is a passion fruit vine in which you can pick the fruit right off the vine. There is a BBQ area with tables and an outside sink for BBQ cleanup. There's also a path leading to the ocean where you can swim, snorkel, and fish.

About Bryan and Cynthia Bertrand

Retired and living the life we want.

Bryan and Cynthia Bertrand purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bryan and Cynthia Bertrand chose Kona Coast

We have been coming to the Hawaiian islands since the 70's. Of all the islands, we love the quaintness of Kailua-Kona. The small town feel is comforting and gives us a chance to relax and enjoy life. Kona Shores has the same feel and is a short easy walk to town.

What makes this condo unique

We love being able to take short walks to town, having breakfast on the lanai while enjoying the ocean views, swimming in the ocean view pool, sunsets, and barbeques.

Like home with a Hawaiian flare

  • 5 of 5

The condo has great windows and ceiling fans, providing lots of ventilation; and it really felt like home with a Hawaiian flare. We had wonderful night's sleeps in the very comfortable bed. It is in a location close enough to town for walking and very close to Green Flash for smoothies, snacks, and that wonderful Kona coffee.

Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Love this condo and the complex! Everything about it is perfect. Very clean and beautifully updated. The owners have thought of everything for their guests even a nightlight in the bathroom. The complex is quiet and everyone we encountered was friendly. The pool area fantastic. Great location near town. Loved that we had an assigned parking spot. Will absolutely stay here again!

OWNER RUINED OUR VACATION!

  • 1 of 5

We had booked this property 6 weeks prior to our visit to the Big Island and less than a week out we got an email that our reservation was cancelled! It left us with NO where to stay and at that late date couldn't even find anything else we could afford! My husband was recovering from heart surgery, and she caused us MUCH undue stress.

Owner's Response: This person never booked with us. Our condo was previously booked with someone else months in advance. This person must have gotten mixed up because we never agreed to rent it to her.

Another Great Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at Kona Bob's and it provides for a great base. It was clean and its location is perfect for accessing the amenities in the village. The condo was clean on our arrival and is well maintained. Thanks for a great place to spend our vacation.

Stylish Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was really lovely! Just as advertised.

The keyless entry worked perfectly, but if you’ve never used a “lockbox” before we would recommend looking up how to use one ahead of time so you don’t end up fumbling around in the dark with it like us.

The place itself was small, but the space is maximized by a lovely design that made it feel comfortable and welcoming. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The kitchen was very nice. We liked that we didn’t have to eat out every meal, which really made this trip more manageable. We greatly appreciated the gas stove and granite counter tops. However, we did note that a lot of the dishes were well worn and not microwave safe. This was not a huge problem, but it is something to be aware of.

The condo never got too hot. The fans and cross-breezes kept us very comfortable even when it was in the high 80s. We did encounter a few problems with the fan lights and the toilet, but Bryan and Cynthia (and maintenance) were very responsive and helpful with these issues. As for location, this is a great spot! In 15-30 minutes of walking you can reach restaurants and shopping, though everything is very drivable and we never encountered problems with parking. We highly recommend Kona Bob’s Condo!

Lovely condo, good location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely, nicely furnished, with a very pleasant terrace for meals. The location was great, walking distance or a short drive from both the town and beaches. Well appointed kitchen (though no dish washer), beach equipment available for use, pool with a fabulous view of the ocean. The immediate beach is not swimmable, the only reason we've given 4 stars instead of 5. But we would not hesitate to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. The beach closest to our complex pool is swimable but you have to climb over rocks to get into the water. The sandy beach closest to us is about 1/4 mile down the road towards town and is swimable as well but easier to get into because it is sandy and you just walk in.

The Kailua-Kona Historical Village is only about 1 mile from our lovely condo. The Village is very quaint, with lots of charm and good shopping right along the water’s edge. Some of the activities you can find in the Village and nearby are: beaches, luau’s, farmer’s markets, art galleries, shops, restaurants, boating, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boogie boarding, and deep sea fishing…Just about every water sport you can think of! There are also several great golf courses nearby. There is so much to do to stay active, or you can do nothing and just lounge at the pool.
