This condo is great if you are a slightly mobility impaired. There are no stairs, but you do have to walk around the building. The showers are easy to get into. There was a very comfortable queen size bed at a good height. Our friend slept on the Murphy bed and she said it was very comfortable also. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need to cook. There are a few extra spices which is great. I have rented in the complex five or six times over the years, different units and I will definitely come back to this condo again. Easy to communicate with the owners.
Timely response from owner for booking.
Answered all questions and checked in a end of my stay to make sure all went well.
Super fun and easy
This was our first experience with vrbo and it was perfect for us. Diane, the Host was very helpful with directions, and instructions about the condo so it was very easy to locate the condo and get inside. It was exactly as described on the website. Everything was clean and ready to move in, all we had to do was unpack and go to the store for food. It is a very quiet place and friendly neighbors. Even though there was no AC there was usually a nice breeze and the ceiling fans kept it cool. The pool is near the unit, clean and very inviting. If we ever make it back to Kona we would for sure stay here again. Thanks again Diane for sharing your condo with our family and making our trip that much more special. Aloha, Willi and family
Nice place. Kinda odd layout with 2nd bedroom more of a dining room with blinds and sliding doors. Was very clean. Nice to have the 2 bathrooms. Kitchen well stocked. The beach chairs and snorkel stuff was pretty dated so we rented from Boss Frogs.
Diane was a great host, and was available for any questions. The condo was clean and very well equipped, all the beach toys and towels we could have needed. The master bedroom/bath was large and comfortable. The only thing I wish I had realized when booking was that the 2nd bedroom, is only separated from the kitchen by a vertical blind. And the livingroom by sliding doors. My teenagers would have liked a little more privacy.....I would highly recommend the condo and would definitely Italy rent it again.
Diane is a very responsive host and checked in with us during our stay to make sure that we had everything we needed. Accommodation is clean and very well stocked (kitchen, towels, beach gear etc).

This attractively-decorated ground-floor condo had plenty of space for us two Senior couples, a fully-equipped and well-stocked kitchen, plus a pleasant lanai. The location near Ali'i Drive is convenient for driving to stores, beaches, and attractions but also makes night traffic noise inevitable. Unusually hot & humid weather during our stay made us wish for air conditioning, not just the ample ceiling fans, until we figured out the improvement made by closing windows and lowering lanai blinds during the day. We also appreciated the owner's recommendations on activities and shopping.
Diane, your condo and its location is everything that you say it is. This was our 2nd time renting your place as it is so comfortable and located in an area that we also love, Keauhou Bay. Here we can be active as we want whether it be on the water or in it, running, walking or just plain observing the wildlife, flowers and sunsets. Thank you for sharing your happy place.

We enjoyed the apartment. It’s in a central location for seeing the Kailua-Kona coast. It was very clean. The host was prompt and helpful with questions and recommendations. Our kids enjoyed the pool. There is some traffic noise, but quieted down in the evenings.
We enjoyed the stay.
Nothing fancy but a comfortable and convenient place to stay. Nice pool and close to everything.
Diane was a breeze to communicate with. Any needs that arose she got them taken care of immediately.
The home is well stocked, the fridge, spices, and paper products.
The cleaning could have been kicked up a notch. All the surfaces you touched had been cleaned. Under the beds and couches was quite a bit of dust and particles. In between dresser drawers and bathroom drawers there was a build up of dust.
The road noise from the master bedroom is loud and carries right inside the windows. Also the trash and yard service ran twice in one week which was a lot of noise early as well.
This was a great spot that took care of us for the week.
Very relaxing and pleasant. We drove to the Volcano which was long and tedious but worth the time. Many changes since I was there about in 1972. At that time you walked a long way very close to the edge while this time you were quite a way from the actual boiling lava. The 2018 eruption changed the area drastically. I warn people to bring a flashlight and raincoat with them if planning on walking down the trail at point 5. The only hitch was I locked the door the first night and then could not open it. I called the site manager about my situation and we were able to get it unlocked I called him to let him know not to come but actually left the message and talked to a person from Portland. Weird because my phone showed the caretakers nam on it.very pleased .
property as advertised. would stay here again.
Nice clean large house. Lots of amenities. A bit of noise from the road
We had an awesome time in this condo! Its clean and the location is great. I highly recommend.
We enjoyed our stay in Diane's condo. The cond is perfect, with a very comfy bed. Diane responded quickly to any questions we had, the condo was very clean when we arrived, which we appreciated. The kitchen is one of the best kitchens of the numerous VRBO'S we have stayed in, can't think of anything we needed that wasn't there. The beach chairs and umbrella came in handy for the day we spent on the beach. The condo was in a good location for all the exploring and hiking we did.
We would stay again if we find ourselves back in this area of the Big Island.
Will come back for sure
Great communication with owner, easy process, and as described.
The house is neat and clean in a nice environment. Our stay was pleasant here. We had only one issue in locating the house initially as our google maps couldn't locate the address. But the landmark provided by the owner was very helpful. The owner was very responsive and helpful.
Lots of space for a family vacation! I highly recommend staying here. We felt right at home, there were two bathrooms that saved us time to get ready. Two beds and a sofa pull out bed that allowed us to feel comfortable. We also had an amazing kitchen so we were able prep food when we were on the go and we enjoyed our breakfast outside. We also had an amazing communication with the management. Mahalo for everything.
Thank you Diane for sharing your home with me and my family. We all loved the place and was super satisfied. Easy access, great location, and close to the pool. Everything needed is their, down to toys for the beach. Will stay there again in the future.
We had such a lovely stay in Kona. This listing was a perfect home base for our adventures: snorkeling at Two Step, kayaking to Captain Cook, and general beach-relaxing. Our two teenagers had plenty of space (yay!) and enjoyed pool time at the beautiful saline pool in the evening. Usually, the pictures are better than the place, but not in this case! The pictures just do not do justice to how clean and comfortable the space is- comfortable mattress, a lanai perfect for drinking morning coffee, a fresh, clean kitchen. We also loved the ceiling fans, geckos, and wake-up calls from the neighborhood rooster who struts about with his special lady friend. Oh! It would be wonderful to spend more time in Hawaii.
Thank you so much for sharing your condo. The location was great... Everything was clos, it was quite, clean, and the neighbors were friendly and helpful.
This condo is well situated and appointed. We enjoyed our meals on the private lanai while watching geckos and birds dipping into the bird bath. The ground floor was very convenient - no stairs! Great proximity to the pool and the local owners were all very friendly. The extra "bedroom" gave each of us our space. Great location to set off on adventures for Volcanoes NP, snorkeling, or Kona. Walking distance to groceries & cinema. Shuttle bus ($2) stop to town nearby meant didn't always need the car. Bonus that it had a nutribullet as smoothies were a daily regimen in our preparations for IronMan! Have stayed in 8 different places (1 for each IronMan) and would definitely return to this one!
This is the perfect condo for the elderly as well as for children. It is conveniently located with the hotel and shopping just minutes away. The parking is just steps away from the condo and is under the shade. This unit is well equipped with lots of extras. The Keauhou Akahi is clean, quiet, a hidden treasure!!
This condo is in a great location for those looking to get outside of the heavy tourist area in Kona. The closest beaches are popular with locals and visitors alike. Our son (age 8) loved boogie boarding at la'aloa (aka white sands, aka magic sands) beach. It was great to have boards and snorkel gear provided at the condo so we did not have to rent.
The Sheraton resort, just a short walk down the hill, is a good place to grab a latte in the morning. They also have a nice restaurant that would be a perfectly romantic place to watch the sunset at dinner. But we just cooked simple meals in the well stocked kitchen and enjoyed the view from the covered porch of the condo... and we were very happy.
Comfortable, well-equipped condo. Easy walk to swimming, snorkeling, paddling and more. Definitely recommendable.
My friend and I had a wonderful time in Hawaii, and the accommodations were a big factor! The property is easy to move around in, open and spacious, clean and comfortably home-like. We took advantage of the patio/garden area and swimming pool, enjoying the flowers, birds, and sunsets! The swimming/snorkeling gear available was an added plus. It soon felt like home and getting to and from nearby attractions and shopping was easy, whether we took the car or public transportation. We had the opportunity to explore a good portion of the island and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend this property.
My family and I had a wonderful time in this beautiful and comfy condo! Nancy (caretaker) was extremely friendly and helpful, and the communication with Diane (owner) was prompt, and personable. My children loved the Murphy bed, and their own "colorful" bathroom. The bed in the master bedroom was perfect as well. The kitchen was perfectly stocked, and the condo was conveniently located just steps from the pristine pool. We have already recommended this place for friends who will be there on Thanksgiving weekend, and can't wait to start planning our next trip over!
Fabulous location--excellent sunset viewing. Close to/walking distance from shopping, restaurants, beaches, scuba boats,local farmer's markets and weekend entertainment. Very quiet! Clean and spacious condo with lovely lanai and garden area; barbeque; swimming pool on property. Owners very knowledgeable about local sites and "doings." We are returning users of this property.
My family had a wonderful stay. This is a great location, easy 3-5 min walk to Keauhou bay, very convenient with stores & farmer's market nearby, which made it easy to prepare meals & kick back out on the lanai. The condo is very comfortable & well-equipped with everything we needed. We took day trips or relaxed at the pool, just steps away. Great experience - We'll be back!
