Read on to learn more about our Kahaluʻu Bay villas!
Comfort According to Your Needs
Whether you’re looking for a one, two, or three-bedroom unit, Kahaluʻu Beach Villas has the accommodation your family needs for a great vacation. Couples, families, and groups alike will be very comfortable here. Each unit has its own lanai for outdoor dining and enjoying the scenery. The complex also has a pool with a barbeque area. And of course, you’re only moments away from great snorkeling in our Kahaluʻu Bay villas, a beautiful black sand beach. Keauhou has groceries, restaurants, movie theatres, and golfing available nearby, and the super-convenient Kona-Keauhou Trolley stops right out front, and will take you up and down Aliʻi Drive as needed.
Keauhou Bay is also close and one of the best places to learn a new ocean sport. Would you like to try canoe paddling, stand-up paddleboarding, or surfing? Then this is your place! Keauhou Pier is also the very best spot to hop aboard a snorkel trip to the world-famous Kealakekua Bay. Snorkel boats will take you directly to the best spots for viewing fish and beautiful corals, and it’s so much easier than trying to swim all the way across the bay on your own! Do practice snorkeling in shallow water before you go, and please make sure to use a reef-safe sunscreen to protect our ocean environment.
Kailua-Kona is just six beautiful miles away, with tons of things for you to explore. For starters, there’s all the little beach coves and swim spots along those six miles. Tidepools, snorkeling, boogie boarding, and quick dips in the ocean await you! Then, once you get to the downtown pier area, you’ll want to spend an afternoon strolling the souvenir shops, enjoying ice cream cones on the seawall, and watching the outrigger canoes paddle out for late-afternoon practice. You might want to hop in for a swim at the starting point of the world-famous Ironman Triathlon! Kailua Pier is also an awesome spot to get on a romantic dinner cruise or parasailing adventure boat.
The beach villas at Kahalu’u is also home to some of the island’s most significant historic sites, including the grounds of the King Kamehameha Kona Beach Hotel. This was once the home of the king, and the history of the area is well-told through Herb Kane’s famous paintings that adorn the lobby today. You’ll also find Huliheʻe Palace, once a summer home of royalty, and Mokuʻaikaua Church, the oldest Christian church in Hawaiʻi.
Stay in Luxury with Kahaluʻu Bay Villas
With all these nearby adventures, you might not feel like renting a car at all. But if you do, you’ll have a great time exploring all that the Kona Coast has to offer. Cruise south into Kona’s coffee belt and visit a few of the fragrant farms to taste their freshest brews. If you go all the way south, you’ll end up at Ka Lae, also known as South Point, which is the southernmost tip of the island (and of the United States). This fascinating windswept landscape was the first landing site of the ancient Polynesian voyagers who became the Hawaiian people, and you can still see some of their canoe moorings here today. You’ll be amazed by the steep cliffs dropping off into the deep blue ocean, as well as by the antics of local boys who dive off the cliff. Please don’t be tempted to try it yourself, as currents here are very strong (and there are some very big fish down there!).
If you head north instead, you’ll pass by many great beach areas, including Kua Bay, and, further north, the gorgeous Hāpuna Beach, the longest stretch of white sand on this young island. Golf lovers will want to play a round at one of the many world-class courses to be found along the Kohala Coast, including at the Waikoloa Beach Resort and Mauna Lani. Continuing all the way to the north tip of the island, visit the incredible lookout at Pololū, and see the rugged beauty of this remote area. You’ll find some great art galleries and restaurants in the cute towns here, and plenty of whale-watching in season along the coast. The best part is, you’ll know that at the end of your long day of exploring, your luxurious rental home is waiting for you to relax in comfort.
