Overview

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

Private portion of a Luxury Home, 1 Bedroom w/ a Very comfy King bed.

Wow! This one is VERY reasonably priced and in a GREAT location!

Exotic and refined. Breezy and sophisticated. This place is designed for people who want to hear the birds sing and feel the soft trade winds breathe on their sun-kissed skin. For those who want to smell the sweetness of the plumeria's and delight in the exotic colors of the Orchids.

From serene sunsets to exciting live volcanic eruptions, the Big Island has it all and the Great Kona Escape is ideally situated for all of your fun Kona adventures. Just 900 feet elevation up from a quiet sandy cove beach where sea turtles are often seen sunning themselves on the shore and 15 minutes to the most pristine golf course you can imagine, where the wild Peacocks and Nene birds are free to roam.

You couldn’t ask for a better location or a more tranquil environment to go along with this uber comfortable, tropical spacious, yet cozy, ohana. This truly is a piece of paradise.

The Great Kona Escape is part of a beautiful luxury home situated in one of Kona's most desirable neighborhoods. Your ohana has it's own entrance and the only thing you share is the porte cochiére, with Ken and me, a quiet, Medical Massage Therapist, available (by appointment) to help restore your peace of mind.

Pick from the herb and vegetable garden, the fruit orchard, and enjoy the GREAT weather; beautiful flowers; singing birds and all the tranquility your heart desires.

This is a home you will want to return to year after year. Come and enjoy the lush, rich, peacefullness of The Great Kona Escape. You will be glad you did.

About Sandra

Aloha Pumehana, (warm welcome)

Our names are Sandra and Ken. We are both originally from California, I came to visit Kona in 1970 and liked it so much I made this my home and didn't look back. Living on different parts of this Island, Maui and Kauai, I can truly say that The Great Kona Escape is in the BEST location on the Islands for kicking back and enjoying the perfect climate or visiting the many activities Kona has to offer. Now that I am semi-retired, I have more time to devote to making sure that your stay in Kona is all you dreamed it would be. I'm a medically trained Massage Therapist and can help you relax into Island mode - give you directions to just about anywhere - good advice for dining and activities, and assure your comfort and privacy at all times. You'll love it here.

Sandra purchased this house in 1989

Why Sandra chose Kailua Kona

The Great Kona Escape is at 900 foot elevation where the trade winds offer a gentle breeze to keep the warm days at a perfect temperature. The song birds are plentiful, the rainbows are seen often and the location is central to many beaches, golf courses, water activities, hiking, dining and shopping. We are on one acre of beautiful flowers, herbs, a vegetable garden and fruit trees, all this and great ocean views as well.

What makes this house unique

At The Great Kona Escape you can help yourself to the fruit on the trees, the organic vegetables and herbs in the garden, roam the property delighting in the many beautiful orchids and other tropical treats; while waiting your turn for an amazing Massage therapy session. There is WiFi and cable TV for your entertainment. The beaches and shops are just 4 miles down the road and your comfort is my highest priority.

Vacation Rentals Property 152193 --- Check it out - you won't be sorry!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to stay in a home (quiet residential neighborhood) versus a hotel, this is the place for you! The location is great along w/ the ocean view and the grounds (landscape/garden)! And the owners are superb...they want to ensure your stay/vacation is outstanding and then some! They are most helpful! It's definitely worth checking out the recommendations they provide for sights, food, etc.! Given a choice we would definitely stay at Sandra and Ken's place again! Should you decide the same, we hope you enjoy their place/stay as much as we did! Thank you Sandra and Ken!!!

A Scenic, Tranquil, and Cozy,Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four weeks at this lovely cottage on the hillside over looking the ocean. We found the site tranquil and inviting. The gardens were lush and colorful. It's

nearness to the beaches, shopping, and dining was a major attraction. The nearness to waterfalls,volcanoes,and aquatic sports made this an exciting place to stay. Artwork

in each room was a treat. We felt very much at home and the owners welcoming. Suggestions for places to visit helped to make this a great place to vacation.

A Peaceful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a week's stay in this beautiful hillside suite conveniently located near the Kona airport and city. Simply yet tastefully decorated with the owner's stunning art creations, it was a delightful place to return to after a day of amazing island explorations. We appreciated the warm welcome from the owners, who assisted us with every need, including a professional massage before departure. Maloha!

A family paradise.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect fit for our family - spacious,comfortable and attractive upstairs for us, filled with original artwork, while our family occupied the downstairs section, with pool and beautiful garden of tropical fruit trees, with fruit ripe for the picking.

Set in the hills with views and privacy, it was an idyllic retreat.We would love to return one day!

Get away for the week

  • 5 of 5

House was off the beaten path but close enough to the town to be convenient. The kitchen had exactly what we needed and the bed was so comfortable! Beautiful view
