Na Hale O Keauhou is a beautiful gated condominum complex surrounded by tropical Hawaiian landscape in the heart of Keauhou Resort and conveniently located below the Keauhou Shopping Center. This well designed complex offers resort style living at its best. The pavilion by the pool is great for entertaining, social gatherings, a cool dip in the pool, or relaxing in the whirlpool spa, or you can work out in the fitness facility.
The tropical landscape of the entry courtyard leading to the home gives you a feeling of privacy. Upon entering through the front door, you will be greeted by a well-lit open great room, dining area and kitchen. The large covered lanai adjacent to the great room invites al fresco dining. A powder room is located right next to the attached one-car garage (with plenty of storage space).
Italian cabinetry by Snaidero and granite counters are featured in the spacious kitchen and master/guest bathrooms which also boast Porcelanosa tiled flooring.
The spacious master bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms on the second level open onto a large covered lanai from where you can enjoy the ocean and Hawaiian sunsets. The master bathroom offers dual vanities, a soaking tub, and a separate shower. The two guest bedrooms share a separate bathroom. If you prefer a cooler environment, the home is equipped with central A/C and double-hung, tinted Anderson windows.

Described by Lily Dudoit, Director of Culture at The Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay, as “a place where time and space meet, generating a new current, and a new beginning,” Keauhou was once a thriving fishing village and home to Hawaii’s royalty.
Located just a few miles south of Kailua Village, the Keauhou resort community is unique among the Kona-Kohala resort areas in that it seamlessly blends with surrounding neighborhoods and commercial areas rather than being separated by expanses of lava fields or undeveloped land. Proximity to shopping, entertainment venues and widely varied dining options infuses Keauhou with an energetic, urban feel, while the raw beauty of the Kona coastline, mana of protected archaeological sites and accessibility to the agricultural abundance of Holualoa and South Kona allows modern day development to exist in balance with the rugged natural character of the area.
For water enthusiasts, nearby Kahalu'u Bay, Keauhou Bay, White Sands Beach and other surf and bodyboarding spots along Ali’i Drive offer a myriad of options for swimming, snorkeling or paddling out for a session at your favorite break. Keauhou is also one of the world’s top destinations for big game sportfishing.
Golfers can schedule a tee time at nearby Makalei Golf Course, Big Island Country Club, or venture further up the Kohala Coast to courses at Waikoloa, Mauna Lani or Mauna Kea. Cyclists, hikers, runners or those looking for a short stroll through a coffee farm will also find many options for a day on a trail or on the road.
Today in Keauhou and Kahalu'u, even as residential development continues, many cultural sites, including heiau (temples) and fishponds, are also being restored to preserve the area’s rich heritage. “As the times change, so do the people. As the land changes, so do the people. As people change, so do the stories. This reminds us of the importance of passing down the history to our families so the stories can live on for generations,” says Dudoit.
If you are considering a move to the west side of the Big Island or investment in a vacation home in Hawaii, this is a place where you and your family can create your own stories, interwoven with the story of Keauhou, to share for generations to come.
