If you’ve ever dreamed of a panoramic view of the beautiful Kona Coast, then you want a vacation rental in the Kona Palisades Subdivision.

Kona Rentals Condo: North Kona Convenience
Palisades Kona is a great spot to be close to everything in Kona, but away from the traffic. Just minutes from the airport, you’re also close to Costco, Target, Ross, Wal-Mart, and all the shopping you need. You’re also just a few minutes from Aliʻi Drive, so spend an afternoon browsing the shops for that perfect souvenir, followed by a sunset cocktail or romantic dinner cruise. Take advantage of your time to learn about some of the storied history of the region; kings and queens used to live here, and you can visit one of their dwelling places, the beautiful Huliheʻe Palace.
It’s about a 20-minute drive up the coast to the Waikoloa Beach Resort, home of world-famous golf courses, fine dining, and luxurious resort spas. There’s also a great beach there, ʻAnaehoʻomalu (A-Bay), which is an excellent place to try out new water sports such as stand-up paddling or hydro-bikes. Hop on a glass-bottom boat or whale watching cruise here as well!
Adventures Up and Down the Coast
Your central Kona rentals condo location will make it easy to explore either north or south along the Kona Coast. If you head north, stop for a swim at Hāpuna Beach, the longest stretch of white sand on the island, on your way to see the breathtaking view at Pololū lookout. Stroll the many art galleries of North Kohala’s small towns, and visit the original Kamehameha statue that was once lost at sea, and later recovered.
If you head south instead, you’ll pass through the fragrant coffee fields of Kona’s uplands. Stop at roadside stands to sample some exotic island fruits, or take a tour of a coffee farm. Spend a day at Kealakekua Bay, where you can see an amazing abundance of colorful reef fish. You can also take a kayak tour of the bay, which is a great way to visit the British monument that marks the final resting place of Captain Cook.
No matter what adventures you choose, you’ll be glad to come home at the end of the day to Kona Palisades!
