About Ralph

Hi. My name is Ralph. I'm the owner/builder/manager/gardener/decorator & cleaner of this home. By now, over 2,000 people... all sharing a common love for this Big Island, have enjoyed their Stayinkona under this roof . What a privilege to have made friends with so many of you. From Ironmen to an 'Ultrawoman', Ausie paddlers, 'Guamish' divers, Apple Event staggers, extended families, numerous regulars, wedding couples, and so much more. One of the treats of traveling is meeting new people. For me there's been a happy reverse to this in meeting you, the honored travelers & guests to this beautiful place.

A long story tells how this place came to be. Not many know it but I live thankful for the story ... and thankful to you who decide to make your stay with us.

Why Ralph chose Kailua Kona

In a word - 'perfect location'. So quiet and comfortable. Awesome view of town and close to town without the noise and heat. Just the right spot to all points north, south, east, or west. Like a recent guest said, 'perfect for kids - without the resort pull on them ... made getting out and about to see the rest of the Island easy'.

'Couldn't have been better'.

What makes this house unique

While this home gives everyone their space (and does so afford-ably), it tends to a sharing of the whole space. Be it extended family or other group, it is the increase in numbers that results in such a good time. Stayinkona is a 'THE MORE THE MERRIER' (and affordable) PLACE. Let us know ahead of time and we'll set up a tent for even larger groups :-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us share in the beauty of your home, it was truly awesome.

Great house for family reunion and a wedding ceremony!

  • 5 of 5
There is no doubt that we had a GREAT one week at Ralph's house! We had NO complaints about anything - the location, size of the house and yard, equipment of the house, and the owner, etc.... everything was just so perfect. This is not exaggeration at all. Even though I emailed him a lot to ask some small questions, he wrote me back within a day or two. Even before we checked in the house we were pretty sure he would be a really nice owner, and actually he is!

We had a small wedding ceremony in the lawn and reception on lanai. Everything worked perfectly. Photographers and videographer we hired really enjoyed shooting our footage in his beautiful yard. To get beautiful shoots with sunset, this property would be great.

Our family really really enjoyed staying at this house. All of them (except for us)never stayed at vacation rental before, and they all really liked the idea of "staying at a vacation rental" because their first experience was amazing. We are already talking about the next "family reunion" and probably we will stay not in the hotel but a vacation rental.

To make great memories, choosing the best place to stay is one of the important things.We are sure you would never regret staying at this house!

Dream Home with all the fixings

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 6 days at this beautiful home. We had 10 total adults and it was so nice to have all the open space, 2 kitchens, and the beautiful back yard. We spent 2 nights in and BBQ'd. The rental included condiments and everything we needed to cook a meal. It was so fun to sit outside and visit. There were plenty of towels to use and washer and dryer. They even had laundry detergent available for us to use. It was just so nice to have all those little things. It was the small details that made this stay great including: a great selection of movies, games, Hawaii tour books, cards, and a cooler for our beach day. The location is about 1 mile from the city of Kona - so it was easy to walk or drive down to town. The home is just beautiful and would be a dream to stay for an extended period of time. Ralph was so sweet and was more than accommodating for us.

Gorgeous home - just as described

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 11 scuba divers and this was the perfect set-up for us. The two fridges and lots of sinks and counter space made it ideal for preparing breakfasts, packing along lunches and storing cold drinks. We even tested and thoroughly enjoyed the huge new BBQ that the owner just installed prior to our arrival. The house is BEAUTIFUL and in a very lovely neighborhood. Great location, close to stores and restaurants, just off the main highway, but ULTRA-QUIET and very peaceful and serene. The landscaping is stunning! The interior finish of the ground level suite feels like a luxury home with beautiful wood doors and casings, stainless steel appliances, and marble countertops, etc. Ralph, the owner, was very accomodating and fulfilled our every request. We'd definitely return and it is perfect for a large family or a big group who don't mind sharing the two bathrooms. Enjoyed the ping pong table, outdoor as well as indoor seating was plentiful too, and even got to meet the friendly wild bore who roams the area. Excellent experience, start to finish! Would LOVE to return, or move to this gorgeous island home permanently, if I could :-)

Hawaii wedding & Family reunion

Hawaii wedding & Family reunion
  • 4 of 5
When my daughter told us that she wanted to have her wedding in Hawaii I had the thought of a large house where we could all come together and spend our precious
time. Then my husband found this lovely home and I knew right away this was the place. When we arrived and saw it with all the lovely Hawaii gardens we were so pleased. As we stayed for the week we could see in each room and every cupboard they went the extra mile to meet our every need. Thank you to our host for giving to us this wonderful opportunity to stay together as a family!
Blessing to you & your family!

Memorable Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We can not say enough wonderful things about our stay here. We had the space, privacy, amenitities etc. needed for our stay. This home was spacious, beautiful, and quiet. It is located near the main part of town and made for easy access to everything. Kid friendly, which was huge for us, a big beautiful, manicured back yard. The owner was outstanding, accomadating, and helpful with any questions we had. We would stay here again in a heart beat. Thanks for helping us make the most wonderful memories we will cherish for a lifetime.

Awesome place to stay!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is such a beautiful house we stayed for around 2 weeks! It has big backyard, comfortable beds, large kitchen, and many other good things! We recommend this house for large groups, or families. Ralph provide a play yard for our children, so they can play and sleep there. They also have high chair, and toys for the ocean. My kids were really happy to play in such a wonderful backyard, and hear birds singing)) It was always quiet there, no worries so, people can really enjoy their vacation))) Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!

Kaiilua Kona is a quaint Hawaiian town on the sunny side of The Big Island. Visitors and locals enjoy perfect weather, water, and beaches. Relax or body surf on green, white, and black sand beaches. Star gaze or play in the snow on 14,000 foot Mauna Kea. Kayak to Captain Cook Monument for incredible snorkeling. Experience turtles, exotic fish, dolphins, and whale watching (Dec-Feb).

There's Manta ray dives, scuba lessons/diving in crystal clear blue water, and
