Kailua Kona Villa Rental Photos and Description

2BR Suites/2.5BA, Private Sleeping Porch w/Murphy Bed, Sleeps 6

Sunset Villa is a luxury, private ocean-view retreat in Kona's most prestigious gated community of Keauhou Estates. Situated on the most private lot within the development, this home enjoys dramatic ocean views from Keauhou Bay to Kona Bay. The home and setting feature extensive rock wall and landscaping work; designer interior and exterior finishes; bamboo flooring; sliding glass doors/screens on all four sides of the house to catch cooling breezes; artistic lighting; outdoor living room furniture; bar stools, premium mattresses, bedding and towels; plasma high definition TV/home theater and custom made teak cabinetry (including a queen size Murphy bed in the Private sleeping porch/media room); private gardens (including an outdoor shower); Bose stereo sound system and more. A major remodel was completed in June 2014, which includes: new granite counter tops, mirrors, sinks, and lighting in all bathrooms; new shower, tub, tile, and exterior door to outdoor shower in master bathroom; new hardwood flooring throughout; new Persian luxury rugs; new granite counter top, cabinet doors, sink/faucet, refrigerator, and micro-wave in the kitchen; new outdoor landscape lighting; and more.

Features of this home include two very private bedroom suites, at opposite ends of the home, and a private sleeping porch/media room (with a queen size Murphy bed in a custom made teak cabinet) with a half-bath just outside its french doors. You'll enjoy panoramic ocean views throughout the home, with unsurpassed privacy and quiet. There is a large covered lanai with outdoor living room furniture, a barbecue area, outdoor wet bar with small refrigerator, media room with plasma HDTV and home theater system, laundry room with washer and dryer, den off the master bedroom suite with a desk and wireless broadband Internet access, and private enclosed garden/lanai with outdoor shower just off the master bathroom. The guest bedroom suite features a meditation garden, small lanai, and ocean views.

This architecturally designed and professionally decorated home boasts luxury details including high beam wood ceilings; quality new and antique furniture; an extensive art collection; hardwood floors with luxury area rugs throughout; tile floors in the bathrooms and laundry room; fully equipped gourmet kitchen, including high performance appliances; dramatic indoor and outdoor lighting; and well-equipped multimedia options. The high quality of the home's custom built furniture, antiques and original art create an aesthetically pleasing environment rarely found in vacation rentals! The private swimming pool has been resurfaced with a dark passive solar color, with designer glass tile around its edge. A salt-filter system eliminates the need for chlorine and feels smooth and silky to the swimmer.

This home's ideal location at the 500 foot elevation and screens on all fours sides ensures cooling breezes even during Kona's hottest days. In addition to Kona village just five miles to the north, Keauhou Shopping Center is a beautiful open air center just a few minutes drive from this home. This shopping center offers great shopping, dining, entertainment, and a multiplex movie theater. A variety of local beaches are just a few minutes from the house, including the island's most famous snorkeling beach - Kahaluu Beach Park. In addition, the rest of the Big Island, with its world-class resorts, signature golf courses, and dramatic coast lines, are within easy reach from our convenient location. Volcanoes National Park, a two hour drive from Kona, is a fascinating day trip destination.

About Bob Arcand

I am a former CPA and business owner who sold my company to PNC Bank and retired in 1998. Sunset Villa was purchased to provide my own sanctuary and residence. I have lived in the home full time in the past and have decorated, furnished, and equipped the home to create a perfect retreat for myself, family, friends, and guests.

Bob Arcand purchased this villa in 1999

Why Bob Arcand chose Kailua Kona

This property simply offers unsurpassed quality of design/decoration/furnishing and is equipped to provide all needs. Because this was my full time home for a number of years, the home is designed and furnished beyond virtually any vacation rental on the market. Couple this with the safety of a gated, 24/7 guarded community and unique privacy and tranquility for the perfect relaxing vacation. The house is situated on a small hill at the end of a cul-de-sac, so most neighbors are about 20' below the level of the house. The only house on the same level as Sunset Villa is behind my 8' rock wall.

What makes this villa unique

Very unique and private setting. Furnished and equipped beyond virtually any vacation rental in the market.

The second I walked into this house and experienced the view and privacy, I made the decision to purchase.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing visit at your house! The website doesn't do it justice. The pool was amazing, as was the indoor and outdoor showers. We came for our yearly vacation from SF and it was the perfect getaway. See you again soon.

Amazing stay on the Big Island at Sunset Villa

  • 5 of 5
We had a great visit on the Big Island, in no small part to our stay at Sunset Villa. Wow! We were there with our teenage boys, and we all loved it. The spacious, open-concept was very inviting and comfortable. Immaculately decorated. The kitchen was extremely well-equipped, and we loved that everything we needed was there. The location is both beautiful and convenient - we took more sunset pictures than on any other holiday, and our favourite snorkeling beach was Kahalu'u, only 10 minutes down the road. We really appreciated the boogie boards and snorkeling gear. The pool was great for midnight swims. We are already planning our next visit, and can't imagine why we'd want to stay anywhere else!

The home of our dreams

  • 5 of 5
We had decided to run the Kona marathon and were looking for a nice home to house ourselves, our 2 kids and a family friend. Upon reading the fantastic reviews of Bob's home, we sent an e-mail to inquire about availability. From the very first contact, Bob was kind and accommodating. This was our first VRBO experience and Bob went above and beyond to ensure that we understood every step of the rental process.
Our flight arrived late at night and because Bob gave us very precise directions, we found the home quickly. We took a brief tour of the house which was nicely laid out with beautiful artwork, a gorgeous den, amazing lanai and open and spacious feeling concept. In the morning, we walked out into the beautifully landscaped yard to what can only be described as jaw dropping. The view! Wow. Pictures simply cannot properly describe what we saw. It was love at first sight. I am still having dreams of it.
Bob has thought of everything for a vacationing family. From coffee grinder (for the amazing Kona coffee...check out the farmers market at the shopping centre very close by), the beach gear (boogie boards were so much fun), the water feature off the master bedroom (let the sounds of a trickling waterfall lull you to sleep), to the tiki torches (for the authentic Hawaiian experience), Sunset Villa is absolute perfection. I will never forget the sunsets from the beautiful patio, the zen garden, the indoor and outdoor shower, and the early morning swims just a few steps from the master bedroom.
Although the aesthetics of this home were amazing, the location convenient, and the view utterly breathtaking, our favourite aspect of this property was Bob. He made every part of arranging our trip easy and was so kind in the process. He truly went above and beyond.
We are excited to return to Kona. The date will depend on the availability of this home. If you are trying to choose a home to rent for your next Kona vacation, you will not be disappointed with this exclusive, gated community home. This was our best vacation ever. Mahalo, Bob!

SIMPLY AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
This was voted as my family's favorite vacation of all time, and while we could attribute that to the wonders of the Big Island, I believe it was in large part because of the comforts of Bob's beautiful home. We truly felt a part of the house the moment we pulled into the driveway. It is honestly a perfect home with all the necessities you can ask for - a full kitchen, beach gear, towels, beautiful patio and grill, pool (too name a few). Please save yourself the trouble and don't look elsewhere. My family can't wait to come back. Bob is as professional and generous as they come!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to the property earlier than expected but were still well received. The house is exactly like the photos portrayed - beautiful landscaping, open airy kitchen and great room - and nice and quiet neighborhood. Even though the pool was nice - we rarely used it because we were always on the go - moonight manta snorkel, dolphin morning snorkel, Kona zip line, National Volcano Park. The kitchen was fully stocked and we enjoyed dinners with amazing sunset views. And despite not having AC - the house is high enough that by nightfall the house is cool enough to sleep well with the ceiling fans. Highly recommended.

Perfect Location for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from 11 wonderful days in Hawaii, with Sunset Villa providing a beautiful home base from which to explore the Big Island.

To begin with, the location is great - close to Kona, and centrally located for adventures to the Volcano, Hilo, South Point, and Kohala areas. The shopping complex that's about 1/2 mile away was handy for those quick visits to a grocery store as well. The quiet gated community helped provide that little extra peace-of-mind that's always nice to have when one is vacationing far from home.

The views from the lanai of the sunsets were incredible, and reading a book while relaxing on the comfortable outdoor furniture, with lit tiki torches providing a warming glow in the early evening hours, made for the perfect ending to each day.

The interior of the home provided much to explore as well - pictures, paintings, sculptures and carvings of various styles are on display in every room of the home. While there are 3 flatscreen tv's in the home (if I remember right), I am happy to say that, except for 1 or 2 hours of watching a particular Olympic event, our family chose the pool or lanai over the television as the activities of choice during our visit.

The house has a large well-appointed master bathroom, and a side office/den off the master bedroom was a great location to setup a laptop. WIFI was also available, and the only 'complaint' my son (13 years old) had was that the WIFI signal was a bit weak in the guest bedroom side of the home, but as we told him... you're on vacation, WIFI is secondary (smile).

The pool itself is not too big and not too small - perhaps 3 or 4 feet deep on the shallow to maybe 6 feet on the deep end, and there were inner tubes, balls, and other pool items provided. Additionally, for days at the beach a selection of sturdy beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, and a supply of high quality beach towels meant that we didn't have to rent these items for our trips to the beach.

Bob really has provided nearly everything a guest would need on their vacation. I would not hesitate to stay at Sunset Villa again on our next trip to the Big Island!

Mahalo,

J.J., Lisa, & Tanner
