This unique location offers beautiful turquoise surf breaking views from every room of the house. The 'Old Hawaii' atmosphere of Koa wood and vaulted ceilings create an open and spacious feeling of aloha and royalty. There is plenty of space with private relaxing places to escape and relax.
The 'Apple Oasis' is unique with a peaceful and serene private lawn along the shoreline. Can you smell the marsh- mellows roasting on your fire by the ocean? It's like heaven!
On the waters edge, you overlook some of the most pristine coral reefs and surf breaks in all the islands. If you're lucky, during their regular seasonal visits, you'll see Humpback Whales, pods of Dolphins, Mata Rays and Green Sea Turtles at your Lanai steps.
The house location on the island is a perfect starting point for nearby activities and day trips. The house is located in an ideal spot just a block away from the best snorkeling beach on the island, Kahaluu Beach Park. There is a great view of the parks' popular surf break from the lanai where you can watch the local surfers all day long.
You will love lounging in the shady peacefulness of your private seaside palm grove looking out over the Kahaluu Bay surf break. The tranquil privacy and natural beauty is rhythmically enhanced by the constant sounds of the breaking waves on your very own private oceanfront shoreline.
Afternoons are a great time to stretch out and relax in the comfort of your soothing Kona hammocks. Sleep inside with a view of the waves from your bed or sleep outside under the stars while being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the sea and the moon setting over the Pacific.
Without leaving the property, you can barbeque and enjoy snorkeling, swimming, diving, shore fishing, sunbathing, hammock laying, sunset watching, paddle-boarding and kayaking. It will be your own private vacation home for a romantic getaway, family vacations, reunions, spiritual retreats, and weddings. Wheelchairs can easily navigate this disability- friendly property.
Within 1 mile of the property you'll find a supermarket, a drugstore, good restaurants, "luxury" shopping, health/facial/nail spas, movie theaters, tennis courts, and hotels providing delicious Sunday morning buffets and live local entertainment . Another mile away are world class golf courses, genuine "tourist" luaus, a dive shop, snorkel and dive excursion boats, big game fishing boats, kayaks, canoes, and paddle-board rentals.
Come see why Hawaiian royalty and their families lived along this magical oasis shoreline . Melt away your stress and pressures as you rest and listen to the waves break below your Lanai.

Richard and Gloria have "owned" the Apple Oasis for almost 30 years. Your business is appreciated as they have two kids in college and six grand-kids. Living nearby in Kona Town overlooking the pier and harbor, they stay at the Apple Oasis when it is not rented.

It's like Heaven! The water and wildlife at the home will create a unique vacation that you will never forget.
Beautiful environment on the ocean, spacious and comfortable. The art, decorations and furniture make you feel at home. It is equipped with everything you need to entertain your guests. The house is clean and bug-free. The beds are expensive Ortho high-density foam mattresses guaranteed bed-bug free!
Great location with extensive ocean frontage...not overlooked, plenty of space and comfortable. Close to Kona restaurants and amenities yet you feel you are in your own world.
Very functional, well equipped. The outdoor shower (as mentioned in other reviews), is a big hit. There's plenty of space and we saw other rentals which were more expensive but nowhere near as nice.
Richard & Gloria, Thank you so much for sharing your oasis. We loved staying there--the view is just spectacular, very clean, comfy beds, everything worked! My sister & her husband joined us & there was plenty of room for all to have their own privacy yet be together. Kitchen was so well equipped but would like more light for cooking at night. Saw the turtles right out off the huge lanai. Appreciated the tour when we arrived. Have already booked for next year!
We've been to the Big Island a couple of times now. We've stayed all over the Island and this has been one of my favorite properties. The house was in great condition when we arrived and Richard met us there and showed us around. The property was larger than expected and the access down to the ocean was easy. Smaller children may have some difficulty getting out, but if that's the case the beach is just a short walk away. We enjoyed jumping in at the house and letting the current carry us down to the beach and then simply walking home (or vice versa, depending on the tide). My wife and I stayed there with another couple and there was plenty of room to accommodate dinner gatherings and movie watching, as well as to find our own little nooks for some quite time during the day. I wouldn't have any reservations about staying here again the next time we're in Kona.
My husband and I recently spent 2 weeks at this amazing property. Very impressed, ocean right at your door step, spacious double lot complete with every amenity imaginable. Snorkel gear, beach chairs and umbrellas, and a surf board? Ridiculous! Perfect location near to stores, markets and even an Urgent Care should you need it. We have stayed on the Big Island in this area many many times, but this property far exceeded our expectations. Richard is the perfect host, he will take care of you. Highly recommend this piece of Paradise! The house itself is truly fully stocked, every detail provided. Lull yourself to sleep with the sound of the waves, it just doesn't get any better, Hawaii at its best! Susan and Bill
The house and the location were even more terrific than pictured on the VRBO website and photos. The house is lovely. The location is amazing, quiet, and peaceful but close to anything you want. The kitchen was well equipped and, with a stop at Costco on the way in from the airport, made the week absolutely perfect. Richard is gracious and a terrific host. I can't rave highly enough about the house.
Wonderful location and very comfortable home - we were 2 couples so the house was the perfect size; provided privacy but was not too big. Fantastic views from the lanai - great for whale watching! It was hard to sleep when we got back home because we got so used to the sound of the waves at night! Would definitely stay here again.
When we arrived Richard one of the owners met us and went through the entire property showing us the highlights and how to get the most out of our stay. They had a fully stocked home with a good selection of basic food stuffs and spices. There were also abundant supplies of water and beach equipment as well as coolers and such. Ourselves and adult family fully enjoyed the home and yard which had an amazing ocean view from several rooms, the extensive decks and hammocks. Upon Richard's suggestion we even had a small fire out on the rocks by the beach which was a definite highlight. This property had every thing you could ask for in a vacation rental and I would recommend it to anyone.
