About the neighborhood
The condo sits right across the street from Kahaluu Beach, which is arguably the best snorkeling beach in all of Hawaii. There is no closer lodging available to Kahaluu. The complex is also closeby (~0.5mile) to Keauhou Shopping Center for easy access to food, groceries, restaurants, and a weekend farmer's market. The condo is also nicely situated to many points of interest. Kona town is only a 10-minute drive's away by car to the North while landmark monuments like Captain Cook and the Palace of Refuge is ~30min to the South by car.
