Take one step into Pilialoha ("beloved") Kona ocean condo and experience casual Hawaiian luxury at its best. This spectacular oceanfront condo provides a completely unobstructed view of Crystal Clear Blue Ocean. Open the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, step onto the wrap-around lanai and experience the warm, gentle breeze wafting towards you as you gaze upon rippling ocean waves. Listen to the calming sound of palm tree fronds quivering in the wind. In the morning, enjoy a cup of coffee on the lanai while listening to the echo of exotic birds chirping as you discover the faint scent of flowering ginger plants amongst the lush, tropical foliage that surrounds you. Don't be surprised if you see a pod of dolphins frolicking in the distance or whales breaching the surface during the winter months. In the evening, sip a glass of wine while watching the orange glow of the sun as it makes its slow descent into the ocean. Take a deep breath, close your eyes, feel the warm breeze upon your skin, and know that you are in Hawaii.
We welcome you to experience Pilialoha, our 1,200 square foot, 2 bedroom, 2 bath Kona ocean condo, which has been completely renovated, from head to toe, with high-end natural materials, exacting details, and custom finishes created by local craftsmen. Feast your eyes on the natural beauty of custom-crafted Sapele Mahogany wooden doors and colorful tropical artwork throughout the condo and experience a feeling of luxurious Hawaiiana at every turn.
When you're not relaxing in the condo, take a two minute walk north to Kahalu'u Beach park to enjoy a good book, snorkel, or keep an eye out for green sea turtles frolicking in the water or sunning themselves. Afterwards, take a 10-minute walk or short drive to Keauhou Shopping Center for your pick of gourmet Chinese, Thai, Japanese, casual Mexican or Italian cuisine. Not feeling like eating out? Pick up some groceries at KTA, a fully-stocked grocery store, to prepare your own meal in our fully-equipped, tropical gourmet kitchen finished with cherry louver cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
After dinner, relax on the living room sofa with your feet propped up on the oversized ottoman. Read to the sounds of breaking waves, check email or surf the Web on our free, high-speed WiFi, listen to music on your iPod, or watch a DVD movie on our 46" Samsung 3D HD Smart TV. Enjoy a refreshing shower in the master or guest spa bathrooms with natural white quartzite stone floors and floor-to-ceiling showers, granite counter tops and cherry vanity cabinets. At the end of the day, retreat to the master or guest bedroom to recline on a king sleigh bed made of warm mango wood adorned by a custom bedspread made in luxurious designer fabric on top of a firm Serta iSeries mattress. Relax in bed while watching TV, enjoying your favorite show on a 32" Samsung HD Smart TV (master) or a 46" Samsung 3D HD Smart TV in the guest bedroom.
