The scuttlebutt at the morning coffee group in Kona is the Aloha Vista Bar and Grill changed management last year, which is why we are seeing a lot more advertising for it, I suppose. Greg, who used to be a former police officer, tends to show up at coffee on Wednesdays because his wife gets a massage nearby, and he mentions the place. (In fact, her massage therapist is fabulous as I can now witness first hand.) Greg says he and his wife often have breakfast at Aloha Vista Bar and Grill because it's a nice way to start the day.I had been meaning to drop by and have lunch. A few days ago, I got my chance. If you've never had Loco Moco, I have included a photo in my story and a description of it. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Lunch at the Aloha Vista Bar and Gr...

 When my friend Linda first told me about this place she's been going since I left the islands last November, I did not really understand what the deal was. Then, when we drove there Sunday night, after the Kona Choir Society free holiday performance out on Old Airport, I wondered if I would ever find it again.It's not an easy place to find. In part because one needs to navigate through a condo complex. I always struggle with condo listings because I can drive those vast parking, driveways and private streets for a long time in circles, searching for that building. Even when I know approximately where it is, I still have a hard time finding stuff in condo complexes. But once we found the resort that has opened its doors to Kona locals last Sunday, I can see whywe'll be back. I had a spi...

78-7070 ALII DR #E107 KEAUHOU, HI 96740 - $384,9002 Bedroom | 2 Bathroom | 1197 sqft.Listing No. SEE THE VIRTUAL TOUR!Visit www.tfv.co/1562755 to see additional photos and information about this property. DESCRIPTIONOPEN HOUSE : Thursday 6/2 9:30-12:00 We often see remarks like "updated kitchen or remodeled kitchen" but the difference here is the owners have taken the extra step and "reconfigured" the kitchen to actually put things where you would expect to find them in 2016! Another overused description is "great location." What does that actually mean? Well you decide. This unit is tucked away at the southern end of the complex - away from the street, parking lot and headlights shining in your bedroom. A quick walk to the pool but far enough away to avoid the associated noise. Close ...

Real Estate News, Kanaloa at Kona Foreclosures and short sales 2016. Just when we thought it was over, here comes one out of the closet. I'm not going to use all the "Realtor" terms... "wont last" "must see" ...... But I am going to say if you always wanted to get into Kanaloa, but just weren't ready to spend $700,000, $800,000, then this is worth looking at. Over the past 10 years we have seen several people get into these "gateway" units and see if Kanaloa is a "fit" for them,  many will upgrade to the ocean front, or bay front units after a few years, and some will sell off and go onto other complexes. In my opinion Kanaloa at Kona is the PREMIER RESORT, Ocean Front, Complex in the Kona area. And what better way to get in.. Priced at $349,000 with the main view being Kona Country Clu...

 News for Kona Country Club re-opening dates As rumors have it, the Kona Country Club is reopening its Ocean Course on February 1, 2016! I looked up tee times and the cost is posted at $165.00 each, and the first Tee time available is at 7:04 am.  Its been a long time in the making and it almost didn’t happen.I even had it on very reliable sources that the Mauka (mountain) course was actually slated to become pasture land for a local rancher – could you imagine cattle running through the front yards of the Million dollar homes at Keauhou Estates? The plan was scratched in the 11th hour, only because the rancher found a more suitable parcel to graze his cattle on.  Sad though, the Mauka course is still abandoned and looks terrible.Back to the good news, the Makai (Ocean) Course looks awe...

Explore Keauhou Bay - Kailua-Kona, HI One of my favorite places in Kailua-Kona is Keauhou Bay. This picturesque little bay is always both peaceful and yet bustling with activity. Every morning Keauhou Bay awakens to fishermen and scuba divers launching their boats for the days adventure, kayakers gathering for their morning tour and walkers pacing past.  The Fairwind catamaran snorkel tour departs from Keauhou Bay twice a day taking snorkelers to the Capt. Cook monument in historic Kealakekua Bay where the reef is a national underwater preserve. Keauhou Bay is also home to the Keauhou outrigger Canoe Club, which competes in races throughout the Hawaiian Islands and Pacific. The Manta Ray night dive also takes place in the bay where these gentle and graceful giants feed on plankton as sn...

Keauhou Kona shoreline on the Big Island of Hawaii We are over on the Big Island of Hawaii for a few days of relaxation, staying in the Keauhou Kona area along the south coast. It's quite warm here with daytime temperatures in the 80's, and no real breeze to speak of. Though it's beautiful and calm we kind of miss our Haiku Maui home with the cooling trade winds and gentle rain showers. Sure, real estate prices are lower here, but you get what you pay for. We saw some of those super-low priced lots in Mountain View on the Hilo side... No thanks! Vog, bog and frogs! While it's nice to get away, it's even better to come home, especially if your home is on Maui. Maui No Ka Oi. Keauhou Kona, I heart you! search for oceanfront Maui properties right here.

I took my client to an open house today, and was just taken away by the view. the waves, the sound - it was just awesome. This Ocean front 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit is the only ADA unit I know of at Kanaloa. Very tastefully done, you would hardly ever know it was ada - if I didnt tell you. Anyway - price at $795,000, gated community, 2 pools, Resort living on 16 acres of Oceanfront property.
