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 Hōlualoa
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.

Wonderful Vacation Stay
We had a wonderful time during our stay and it truly added to a great vacation. The unit was very clean and well furnished and the location is very convenient. Would definitely consider staying again. The owners are also very responsive, which is a major plus.
Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Kona at Kona Bobs. We try to make our guests experience a pleasant one by creating a Hawaiian atmosphere and providing everything they need during the stay. We hope you return as we would love to accommodate you on your next trip back to the island.
nice cozy place
We stayed in this unit for 6 days and really liked it. The set up reminded me of a motel, but the decor was very nicely done. It's not large by any means but very adequate for 2 people. We did not spend a great deal of time there, but it was nice to sit on the lanai every morning and at the end of the day. Comfortable bed and large shower. I had read that it was walkable to town, but it is quite a distance on a hot day and at night you have to walk on a little section on the side of the road, which I was not too keen on, so we just drove to & from town. Pool was nice because it was right by the ocean and although there isn't a beach, it still felt like you were on it (without the sand)
I would definitely recommend this place. The only thing I was a little put off by and maybe it's just me, but there were signs everywhere. I'm going to assume the owners must have dealt with people who lack common sense, so maybe that's why they are there (?)
Kona is a cool little town with a casual vibe. Lots of shops along the main road (Ali'i drive) and also malls that you can go to if that's more your style. You have to drive to get to the sandy beaches but worth it because we found a few really nice ones in our travels.
Well equipped, very pleasant, location is great
Was wanting a place close to town, and easy to get around. Bryan& Cynthia’s condo was excellent. Very nicely remodeled and had everything I needed. I found it on VRBO. Communication was excellent from the owners. Will definitely recommend to anyone wanting a great place in Kona.
Cute and comfortable but not private
Clean, comfortable, close to town and well stocked. The downside is parking lot on the lanai side and parking lot in the front by the bed... Constant cars coming and going all hours of the night especially in the early mornings make it hard to sleep. But overall the condo was nice. On a side note I did not like that on the first full day we had to wake up early to let the cable guy in for the owners to update their cable box.... we never used the TV while staying there once. Owners were great with communication except for one incident... I was sent a text a message "What did you do to the mirror" with a picture. The large mirror hanging in the bathroom was sitting on the counter instead of hanging? We did nothing to this mirror? The unit above the condo is under construction... constant noise, hammering, pounding and movement of furniture? Owner should learn to communicate without accusations!
Thank you for your review. Apparently, the unit upstairs was just sold. We were unaware of the construction until it was mentioned by you at the end of your stay. We wish you would have communicated that to us earlier so that we could let the property manager know. There are rules about noise and construction work and we could have dealt with the situation. About the cars coming and going...Condo living is not the same as living in a house. When you rent a condo there will be cars coming and going and that is just the nature of condominium living. On the day we texted you about the cable we had just found out our cable company had gone digital and we were informed we would not receive any channels. We thought you would want to have the television working. When we texted you about the cable if you didn't want the cable installed you should have communicated that to us. We would have waited until you checked out. When you checked out our housekeeper told us the mirror in the bathroom was down and our wood flooring in the living room was all scratched up. We contacted you about the mirror and you were verbally abusive to us so we didn't mention the wood flooring. We never charged you for any of the damage you caused and we accommodated you when you wanted to check out at 8:00 pm instead of 11:00 a.m.
Studio condo in an oceanfront complex
Great value in a clean condo close to Kona town-twenty minutes walking distance. Condo is situated back from the water yet you can see the ocean. Nice lanai is closed in with bushes so you don't look onto the parking lot. Pool is clean and on the ocean. Newly renovated condo is outfitted with everything you need to cook your own meals and to pack up and go to the beach. Really comfortable king-sized bed. Would stay here again.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Updated and clean condo located in the heart of Kona
This condo is very clean and well equipped with everything one needs for an enjoyable stay.
Thank you so much for your review. We try to provide everything one would need so that our guest can relax and enjoy their vacation.
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.
