We are the newest complex on Alii Drive in Kona. Our location can't be beat. NOTE: LOTS OF UPGRADES added. We just added all New stainless steel appliances, a new central air conditioning system, and beautiful wood flooring.
Our wonderful location is full of rich cultural and historical history and has a legendary past. Our ideal location is directly adjacent to Kahalu'u Beach Park. Many of our guests love it so much they come back year after year.
OCEAN VIEW, Best Snorkeling, Surfing...Best Location at Beach We are the closest condo complex to the BEACH (about 50 yards from the sand.) and this is the newest condo complexes in the last several years. We have been with VRBO from the time they first went online. I really enjoy what I do and have a tremendous passion for The Big Island. Our location is perfect for couples or families. There is so much to do. A surf shop is a block away. You can take paddle board or surf lessons, rent gear including boards and canoes. We now have bikes to rent right in front of the complex.

In our condo, I like to pay attention to detailing when decorating our unit.
Also note, this condo could accommodate up to 5- 6 people, as we do have 2 fold away beds or blow up beds available.
Now for my description......:) We own 2 side by side units in the building, so if this one is booked just message me and we may have the other one available. If you have any questions I am Gail Gartner Eddy on fb and you can ask me direct there if you would like. It is a great way to have many questions answered.
Ahhhhhh…… Paradise. ALOHA, You have found the perfect Hawaiian Vacation Spot. We are located right at the BEST snorkeling beach on the Big Island, even the lifeguards were talking about it when we were there in Oct. It can't be beat. If you love to snorkel, this is the condo you want. The snorkeling is absolutely incredible and since you are right there, you have the opportunity to go morning, noon and early evening. There are so many species of colorful fish and they are so friendly. When recently and I felt like I was in 'Fish Heaven,' they were that beautiful. Also, this is a Bay where many sea turtles hang out. They love swimming along with you. I will be happy to share some of our pics or You-tube video with you. As for the beach, it is perfect for little ones too. Our generally gentle beach is only steps from the condo. I have some pictures on this site and have more if you want to see them. During the Winter months the surf to the North part of the bay kicks up making it a great surfing spot. Just walk a block North to the local Surf Shop and rent snorkeling gear, take surf lessons or rent a paddle board. Went with our Grandsons (ages 8 and 10 this Summer and they loved the surf lessons given by Ben, who by the way is Great with kids) It was definitely the highlight of their Summer. Also note, the Bay area is pretty much protected and great to snorkel any time. AND, don’t forget to try the shaved at the beach from the food truck that comes daily.
From the condo OCEAN Views are yours! Our New Designer Decorated Condo can be your oasis away from home. Walk in the door to the sound of Hawaiian music from our google dot welcoming you. The view of the Ocean as you open the door is breath-taking, I am sure you will agree. :) We are the newest construction on Alii Drive in the last 20 years! The condo has all you will need for your home away from home. I love all the colors of Hawaii, so we incorporated that throughout the condo. Open the triple sliding French door and cross over the teak threshold onto the lanai, take in the beautiful ocean view, smell the air and listen to the native birds while watching the palms gently sway in the tropical breeze. At this point.....Ahhhh you will know you are in 'Paradise.' Mornings and evenings are a real treat. In the morning you will enjoy your views of the coastline and beach. You will see and hear an array of brightly colored songbirds singing their morning songs. Early Wed. morning you will see luxury cruise ships sailing into port. In the evenings, while enjoying your dinner, you will be treated to one of those unforgettable Kona sunsets where the colors of the sky and sea are beyond description and quite possibly your imagination. Watch closely.......... you might be fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the famous 'green flash'. Phil has seen it, but I never have.....! (Note: I did see it on our last trip, and it IS real!)
Our condo is large, luxurious, and has all the amenities you need. The condo features state of the art design from the granite counter tops to the glass door cherry wood cabinets completely stocked with colorful dishes. The bathrooms have glass block showers and art glass sinks, just to name a few. All of the rooms as well as the lanai have tropical ceiling fans and tray ceilings. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room with Disc player and a TV in each bedroom with disc player. We have free wi-fi internet and free long distance to the U.S. and Canada.
Kona is a very simple residential Island village with a beach town flair... Low-rise condos intermix with homes and parks, snorkel lagoons and little sandy coves.... a real homey feel compared to the resorts. You will fall in Love with The Big Island. Every time we go, I am on the lookout for more beaches and fun things to do. I have a long list with lots of links that I am happy to provide to you.

Gail’s condo is situated across a snorkeling beach, which was pretty cool! All we had to do was walk a few steps to get there. The pool was nice, beds were comfortable, nice and clean bathrooms and kitchen. My favorite part was doing my work on my laptop while having the ocean view right there. Gail gives great tips for where to go and her property manager is very responsive. Overall, I was happy with my stay.

I had a problem checking in due to another random family checked in before me.The Door code was the same as another property and there was an unexpected error.The property manager took awhile to fix the problem and we sat in the car for about an hour.When the property manager finally fixed the problem it was smooth sailing from there.

The location was perfectly located away from the busy of Kailua-Kona without being too far to take advantage of the different stores/restaurants there. The condo was stocked with anything you could need and it was CLEAN. No doubt when I come back to the islands, I’ll be checking to see if one of Gail’s units is open.

We loved our week-long stay at Gail’s condo! It was our first trip to the Big Island, and we had a great time in Kailua town. Access from the condo to the town and other sites on the island was convenient, especially going to the coffee farms (we visited Greenwell) and going north to Hāpuna or Mauna Kea beaches. The kids enjoyed going to Kamakahonu Beach, which had “soft sand” and a nice cove for kids to practice snorkeling in calm water. Go to Ululani’s for the best shave ice, and get parking validated for 3 hours in the Courtyard parking lot :) The condo layout was perfect for our family of 4, and we appreciated that our 6 and 8 year olds had twin beds at one end of the condo with their own bathroom. The master bedroom was a great space on the other side, with views of the beach, and the kitchen and bathrooms all are updated well. We enjoyed being able to walk across the street and be on the sand in 3 minutes, with great snorkeling. We also enjoyed the pool and hot tub, usually in the afternoons or evenings. The proximity to good food options, like Royal Thai and Kenichi Pacific, was really nice, as well as easy access to the Longs Drugs and KTA. Overall it is a fantastic location and condo, and we will definitely stay here again on Big Island trips!

Really can't go wrong with Gail's condo. It was clean, well-kept, well stocked, and the BEST location! Just a short walk across the road to a great snorkeling beach and surf spot. Hop on the trolley to great dining and shopping. Just a short drive to the marina for excursions. Well-stocked kitchen to cook the day's catch as well as breakfast every morning. Great setup with each bedroom having its own bathroom. We were a family of five adults and were all comfortable-even with one on the sleeper sofa! Gail was an amazing host with valuable suggestions. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Great experience and a lovely home. We were very comfortable. We used the trolly a lot but parking at the property is easy and ample. The beach across the street is awesome for snorkeling. We will come back.

Loved every aspect of this property! Location, bed, pool, the snorkelling directly across the street! It was 10 days in pure paradise🌊🌴❤️

This property worked well for exploring the Kona side of the island. This is a small condo complex which feels very private. The unit is tastefully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need. The two things that made this a great place to stay were the outside dining area of the unit which overlooks the beach across the street and the pool area. The pool had an infinity edge which also overlooks the beach. The hot ton felt great there were areas that were shaded.

We wanted to say thank you for letting us stay at your lovely condo - it was completely perfect for our first trip to the Big Island - and my goodness what memories we had there. We slept so well and had everything we needed! Britt, the onsite manager was fantastic as well. My kids also enjoyed the pool and the area was quiet and peaceful - even with all the snorkeling activity across the street! I'm writing the review now that I've returned home to the east coast and I'm missing the view and sounds from the lanai already. Aloha and best wishes to you and everyone who stays!

Our stay was so nice and the location for this condo is perfect! A short walk to the beach and a 10min drive to all the shopping and restaurants. The pool was a decent size and my littles were able to walk around part of the pool which is great. The beach across the way is very rocky so bring water shoes you don’t want to be barefoot but incredible snorkeling we even say sea turtles! The condo is decent sized, great views, we were able to cook and prep most of our meals. Everything was perfect for an easy stay with family. Also the lanai view is incredible, we ate most of our meals watching the waves and sunsets it was so nice. Absolutely recommend this place for a wonderful stay in Kona!

We really enjoyed our stay. The Eddy's were very sweet, approachable and helpful. The condo is accessible if you have use a wheelchair/crutches. The entire condo was an easy layout. The beach is right below the condo and was great snorkling and even has a covered pavilion to sit out if you dont want to get in the water. The condo was as pictured. We loced the Big Island and hope to come back again.

If you like to snorkel and surf, you can not beat this location. Gail’s place was so convenient and well stocked with everything you will need. The beautiful sunsets were an added bonus each evening. We would definitely stay here again.

Very clean, great location! Our trip was for 9 nights and loved it! Several of the days we just hung out on the lanai or by the pool when we weren’t across the street snorkeling or surfing.

It's been fantastic staying at this home for our week of Ironman. Very clean, in a good position, the best price we could find, compared to all the highest requests I've ever seen for a homestay for just a week ...

We had a great time at Gail's place! It was wonderful waking up to the ocean out your windows and taking in breakfast on the lanai. The place was comfortable and they had everything we could have ever needed from pots/pans to spices. The on-site property manager Britt was easy to get in touch with (not because anything was wrong but because we left something!) Great Snorkeling beach right across the street! Gail's recommendations and the location being close to everything made this an awesome stay! Thanks for hosting us!

We appreciated Gail's condo during our weeklong stay in Hawaii. It was easy to get all around the island from its location, and it was very easy to stop at Costco in between arriving at the airport and checking in to the condo! What was a huge help were the condo's amenities, especially coffee filters, a cooler bag, beach towels, and beach chairs. There were also plenty of condiments/spices, so we didn't need to buy those. The beds were very comfortable, probably the most comfortable of those at any rental I've stayed in. We appreciated having A/C, but we were also able to leave the doors open and the ceiling fans on in the evening. It was really nice to sit on the lanai and eat breakfast and dinner with a view of the ocean. We did snorkel at Kahalu’u Beach Park, down the street, but it's being loved to death by people and the coral is suffering greatly. We had much better snorkeling at Kona Dog Beach and Honokohau Beach (which also had turtles). The only issue we had involved the deadbolt lock on the door. We were not given a key for it, and we felt uncomfortable not being able to deadbolt the door when we left for the day (the deadbolt is usable from the inside when you're home). Perhaps this is a big-city fear, and I emphasize that we did not have any security issues. I spoke with the property manager our first day about getting a key, but she was not able to provide one. Two thumbs up/five stars!

We loved this condo and its location. It was easy to get around the island and being right across the street from snorkeling was so fun. Everything was clean and condo had everything we needed. Highly recommend it.

Who could ask for more? This property was beautifully kept and just steps away from amazing snorkeling. We loved watching the sunsets from the patio eating area. The owners put so much love and thought into every aspect of this property. We had an amazing time here and would definitely come again.

We rent alot on VRBO and I have to say this is one of our favorites. The place was clean very well stocked. The couch let out into a hide a bed that was perfect for the younger grandkids. The beach was right across the street great for snorkeling, restaurants and grocery stores right around the corner. There were sand toys for the kids,boogie boards and lawn chairs too. We had forgot our sunscreen but there was some there so when we bought some we left it for the next guest. Diffantly would come back and stay here.

We loved our stay. The property was better than the pictures! It was clean and comfortable with all the things we needed available for our days at the beach. The 2 minute walk across the road had the best snorkeling! Well worth the stay.

Perfect location for snorkeling. Beautiful views and even better sunsets. We took our two older children - 16 & 20 year olds on our first trip to Hawaii. Gail was great to work with and everything is as described and seen in the photos. Highly recommend. Gail had a great list of restaurants and activities.

My family of 4 just returned this evening from Hawaii after spending a week in Gail and Eddy's beautiful condo! I will try to keep this review brief, though I have many wonderful things to say. First of all, the location is great! We loved that it was right across the street from Kahalu'u Beach, where we snorkeled and saw so many different types of fish and even a large turtle once. The ocean view from the kitchen, lanai, and master bedroom was incredible -- gorgeous sunsets! The condo itself was clean, well decorated, and well stocked with everything that you might need -- water bottles, boogie boards, beach towels, coffee maker, pots and pans, spices, etc. Also, we loved spending time at the pool and hot tub -- both were well maintained, and we loved the view of the beach from the swimming pool. The communication with Gail prior the trip was great! She was always very helpful and responsive. Upon our arrival, we had a couple quick questions for Britt, the property manager, and she was also very pleasant and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return sometime in the future!

Excellent setup for our whole family. Beach toys, beds, pool access, kitchen, parking, etc. We had a bit of a hard start getting the details to check in (be sure to coordinate at least a day or more before arrival to get the lockbox code and number for the local property manager), but Gail was amazing to work with and we loved our stay. I highly recommend this location.

This is a great property for a family of 4 or maybe a couple of more. Everything here was ideal for the way we like to travel. Location is close to a great snorkel area yet is in a quiet nighttime area. Condo was well stocked and plenty roomy.

This is a clean, attractive and comfortable apartment. There is an ocean view from the balcony, a well-appointed kitchen/living room, and the uncluttered bedrooms are restful. It is situated across the street from a fine snorkeling cove. The owner is clear, communicative and attentive. It was a pleasure to stay here.

We enjoyed our stay at Beach Villas. It was nice to be located slightly out of the downtown area, yet close to the harbor for snorkeling and boat tours. The condo is directly across the street from the beach. There had been a tropical storm right before we arrived, so the water was murky. By the end of the stay the water was beautiful. The condo was updated and well equipped. Some new towels would be nice.

Property was very nice. Host and site manager are great. The location was near a beach that was great for snorkeling; seeing fish, turtles and surfing. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Kids took surf lessons at a location less than a block away. I would highly recommend this place.

We (parents and kids 14 and 16) stayed in Gail's condo mid-June and we absolutely loved it. It was the perfect size and had everything we needed. The porch (lani) was great for watching the amazing sunsets and snorkeling right across the street was incredible! We saw about 25 different kinds of tropical fish and snorkeled with sea turtles. They also like to feed at high tide by the surf shop just down the street and my husband and daughter took a great surfing lesson there while my son and I watched the turtles. Magic Sands beach was great to boogie board and get an Acai bowl with delicious pineapple toasted macademia nuts or dinner right on the water that was excellent. Great location close to the town of Kailua-Kona and we took day excursions to Volcanos Nation Park and Hilo for the waterfalls. Would stay again for sure!! Jennifer, Rick, Lila and Luke

Thank you Gail for renting your condo to us. We enjoyed the tidy space, great location, and excellent communication you provided. The condo is well stocked with beach items too. You take good care of your guests and it shows. Mahalo for sharing it with us. 🌺

We have stayed here two times and absolutely love it! This condo is beautifully furnished and in an ideal location across the street from Kahalu'u Bay where there is good snorkeling, swimming and surfing. The view from the Lanai is one of my favorite parts of this condo as you can watch the sunset and palm trees while drinking Pina Coladas.

October 2015
This condo is just spectacular! I can't speak highly enough about it. I have been three times now and just love it. From the moment you walk in the door and look across the condo, out the lanai at the Kona Coast you just feel relaxed and happy! Everything is neat, clean, relatively new, and decorated so nicely. The two bedrooms are great and comfortable, the kitchen is so nice with everything you need to make meals, and the lanai is our favorite spot to eat on the island! The pool is great with an excellent view of the Kona coast. Everything is so relaxed and quite too. Right across from a great snorkeling beach filled with fish and sea turtles, and there are so many things to do on the island, we just have to go back soon. The owner is also great at suggesting things to do. I'm already thinking of when to get back. I'd recommend this condo to anyone!

My wife and I have stayed in this condo with friends twice now and it has been superb both times. It has plenty of space for two couples and it's great to have a full kitchen to avoid going out to eat for every meal. In fact, cooking our own meals and enjoying the fantastic view of Kahalu'u Beach is our favorite part. We stayed on Kauai for three days without A/C before coming here and having the A/C was a life saver. Considering that Kahalu'u is one of the best snorkeling spots on the island for the variety of fish and the sea turtles (we've seen at least one every time we've gone snorkeling here), I don't know what else I could ask for in a Big Island condo. I'm already a repeat customer and I would do it again in a heart beat. There's so much to do on the Big Island and this location is a great home base.

Exceptional rental! We have rented several times in Hawai'i, mostly Maui, and this is by far the best we've come across. It hits on all dimensions; good value, great location and view; and very nice interiors. One of the best snorkeling beaches is right across the (quiet) street. There is good shopping about a half mile away, and the quaint town (Kailua) is not far (couple of miles). We loved this place.

Jen P.
October 2015
We had such a wonderful time staying in the condo! It is a great location to be based for exploring, or to step right across the street onto the beach for amazing snorkeling. Gail is so helpful in making arrangements and recommendations too. She made it work for us with last minute notice, and all of her recommendations were perfect! The kitchen has everything you could need, and the condo is beautiful and comfortable. We loved it so much we didn't want to leave. The property managers are right downstairs and very helpful and fun. Nice to know someone is right there if needed. I feel so lucky we got to stay will too!

We love the location of this property! As avid snorkelers, the direct access to Kahalu'u Beach was very convenient. And the view of evening sunsets from the lanai was also very special -- we actually saw the famous 'green flash' once at sunset. We also like the proximity to the Keouhou Shopping Center which has a large grocery store and several good restaurants featuring a variety of ethnic as well as American dining choices -- we especially like the crepes at Peaberry & Gallette. The condo itself is nicely decorated and equipped quite well with all one needs for a very short stay or a very long one. Our bed in the master bedroom was especially comfortable. It was also quiet and very private. My spouse has a passion for his work as well as Hawaii and the internet connection worked perfectly -- he was quite productive even on 'vacation'! Upon arrival at the condo there was a wonderful fruit basket from the owner wishing us happy stay as guests --and access to the owner as well as onsite manager is only a phone call away if you need anything special or even advice on fun places to visit and eat. We loved our stay and would happily stay there again in the future.

Our first time using VBRO and not knowing what to expect our experience was great. Our expections were exceeded - the condo is in a great location, across the street from a great snorkeling beach and easy access to shopping and adventures. We like to do our own cooking so we really appreciated the well equipped kitchen, the BBQ by the pool and the very private lanai with the great ocean views to eat our meals. We definitely recommend this condo for anyone visiting the Kona area and will come back ourselves some day soon for another visit.

The condo was very clean, nicely decorated, very comfortable and in great location . Would rent again.

The condo was very clean and had all the necessities we needed. They even had boogie boards, a cooler and pool noodles. We loved the location as it is practically on the beach. My husband and I slept so well on the king size bed. The mattress was very comfortable. Gail was very easy to work with and was always available to answer any questions we had. The convenience to the grocery store was awesome as we used the barbecue at the bool quite a bit. The salt water pool was fantastic for my husband who has chlorine allergies.

I don't have enough room to write all the good things about staying in Gail's condo. But let's start with Gail- we've never met, but I feel like I KNOW her. She doesn't just rent out a condo, she acts as advisor and travel guide as well. She'll send listings of things to do, and sends her own list of fave things to do. Gail goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. We arrived to find a basket of goodies (pineapple, cookies, papaya etc) plus a new sponge and starter supplies. These things make a big difference after a long flight. And if you need something, she takes care of it right away! Now, the condo. It's located right across the street from the best snorkel beach in all of Hawaii. The view from the lanai up the coast is gorgeous...I could never tire of it. The condo is modern and bright and airy, and well kept. We loved listening to the ocean while we slept. The location is at the south end of Ali'i Drive, so it's quieter than being right in Kailua-Kona, yet only a few minutes drive into town. Or you can take the trolley on the corner if you don't want to drive. This was our 4th time staying at this unit, and this time we stayed for three weeks. Not long enough! We'll be back!

February 2012
condo was perfect for a family with 2 teenagers, having separate bedrooms and a kitchen was a must and they could walk across the street to the beach when they wanted. we used the condo as a base for sightseeing and spent as much time on the road as at the condo. we did the hilo volcano helicopter ride, the mauna kea space observatory ( boy was it cold even with the parkas), snorkeling at captain cook, but my kids favorite thing was the zipline at the north end with ecotours,

This is the condo we'd love to return to again and again. It's spacious and beautifully decorated, yet comfortable. A gourmet chef would love the kitchen and extensive granite counter space. The kitchen, as well as the master suite, opens to the covered lanai with gorgeous views, an inviting table and oh-so-comfortable chairs that will draw you out there from coffee to cocktails. The location is great with the best snorkeling beach across the street and it's a short ride into town for restaurants, shops, music, bars and the farmer's markets. There's so much to see and do on this island from exploring volcanoes, seeing the place of refuge, sea turtles, golf, beaching, watching sunsets... Gail offers great suggestions for activities and dining or whatever questions you might have. We had a great vacation with lots of things to see and do and a great home to return to every evening. Thank you Gail and Phil for sharing your home with us!

While we were not able to stay in this beautiful unit due to scheduling, the owners were overly gracious to assist us with finding another unit at the same location. These owners are exceptional to work with and provide a very customer centric attitude to assist anyone interested in their complex. Plus, the owners provide a WONDERFUL FUN list to do while in Hawaii. They couldn't have been more helpful since this location is a gorgeous place to stay in Hawaii.

Gail, We really enjoyed staying at your condo. It had everything that we could want. We took your advise and kayaked the Captain Cook area and had an amazing time. I hope to return again in the Spring with my family. I highly recommend this condo. Thanks for everything.

We spent 10 wonderful days. Across from the beach, beautiful mornings on the lanai, lovely pool, quiet. Shopping and restaurants close. Condo is well appointed, clean, and tastefully decorated. We will return. Thanks for a great experience.

The location of the condo is ideal. The sunsets viewable from the lanai are incredible. There is a wonderful snorkel beach across the street that provides hours of entertainment. The condo has a very nice layout with the bedrooms at opposite ends providing privacy for the adults. There are 3 TVs that allows everyone their own view pleasure after a long day at the beach. The Kids enjoyed the sparkling pool and the turtle deck in the water. It was a perfect home away from home.

Very pleased with the location, size & amenities of this Kahalu'U beach condo. Our family of 5 managed quite well. Gail was very helpful in providing information and tips to help make our vacation as enjoyable as possible. She even helped bail us out when we locked ourselves out of the condo. Truly made us her welcomed guests. Location was excellent for the excursions we took, both North & South. Might recommend some board games to enjoy on the lanai. We'd happily recommend this property to others.

This is absolutely a must-do place to stay while in Kona! I grew up on the Big Island, and wanted to stay near Kahalu'u Beach, the best beach in the Kailua-Kona area. I couldn't be more pleased with this choice. The condo is in a picture perfect location, and absolutely beautiful inside. There is not one negative thing to say about it. I will recommend this to everyone I know who makes a trip to Kona!

This condo is beautiful. We booked it for our 8 night stay (and first time) in Kona. We were so happy that we choose this island, this area, and this condo. We brought our own snorkle gear and snorkled nearly everyday. The sea turtles will swim right up to you. We Kayaked out to Captain Cook Monument and snorkled there-it was gorgeous. We also took surf lessons right down the street. We took a day and drove to the East side of the island. We went to Volcano National Park, saw many beautiful waterfalls and rainforests. The condo had everything we could have possilby needed. I ate breakfast and drank my Kona coffee on the lanai every morning. Everything is so clean and well kept. Hopefully we will get to come back to Kona and we will surely stay here again.
