Overview

Holualoa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

LOOK NO FURTHER! The Kona Retreat is luxury and location on your budget. This spacious two story private island style home is located between Kailua Village and Keauhou in a peaceful upscale neighborhood at 300’elevation, just minutes from all the activities that the Gold Coast is famous for.

The main living areas are on the upper level of the home and include an immense kitchen and living room which open to a large covered lanai - all of which have dramatic vaulted ceilings with ocean and/or mountain views. The main sleeping areas include a stunning master suite with jetted tub and separate shower and a second spacious bedroom and a full bath,- both of which have cal-king beds.

A heart-shaped custom pool – which is surrounded by an array of tropical vegetation - including mango papaya, oranges, bananas, limes and lemons – and ginger of all colors – all of this providing privacy and serenity.

Back inside and downstairs, the lower level has a den – with a queen bed and a futon sofa - for additional sleeping accommodations. Add the lower lanai – where the washer and dryer are located - AND – an outside shower to rinse the sand out of all of those places you didn’t think sand could go – and rinse the beach gear too! This is the base package – 3 sleeping areas / 2 king beds / 1 Queen Bed / 1 Full Futon / 2 baths.

But – There is More!

There are also an additional en suite bedroom which opens to the pool deck that can be added for larger family groups. It has two queen beds, a private bath and kitchenette. Please email us for more info and pricing on these if your group needs more space.

This contemporary and green island style home was designed to take advantage of the naturally occurring ocean and mountain breezes that can change like clockwork during the island day. The upper level has large jalousie window openings, 8' lanai doors, a huge copula opening in the roof, and ceiling fans to assist the natural mountain and ocean breezes.

The Kona Retreat became carbon neutral in 2011. A PV solar array was added that generates the electricity the retreat consumes. In addition, hot water is generated by a passive solar system as well.

High-Speed Wireless Internet access is standard.

The living room includes a unique oversized bamboo sofa and loveseat - a great place to relax and watch the flat screen TV with satellite Dish and DVD.

Hosts are available to help with any of your needs from suggesting restaurants and activities – or to fill the refrigerator prior to your arrival - just ask when you book your stay. We are dedicated to making sure you have the best experience possible. Great care is taken to insure that everything is fresh, clean and inviting, well-maintained and updated. Only quality towels and linens make it to the bathrooms and bedrooms.

This flexible rental is designed to accommodate 1-6 (up to 8 on special request) people with our base rental configuration - 2 king beds, and 2 baths, 1 queen bed and 1 full futon.

[contact us about our options and pricing for larger groups]

We do not charge a ‘cleaning fee’ that most other vacation rentals charge.

Well behaved children who are quiet in the morning and respectful in the evening are welcome at the retreat. We offer a full size crib, booster seats, stroller and baby gates to complying children.

Beautiful home with an okay view

  • 4 of 5
The house is beautiful and very clean. It is so much nicer than the pictures show. The only bad thing is that there is quiet time from 8 pm-8 am. Just sitting on the lanai having our coffee at 6:30 am our first morning got us a note on the front door about neighbor complaints! We are in our mid 50's and are not loud people. Imagine being in Hawaii and feeling like you have to be confined to the inside of the house during those quiet hours, or be very careful to be at a near whisper. There is no way children or teenagers would do well at this home, no matter how well behaved they are. Otherwise, the house was great. If quiet is very important to you, then this is the house for you.

Owner's Response: This is a VERY quiet neighborhood - with many retired people in their 80's and 90's. This is made very clear in both the terms and conditions, and on notes and letters in the rental. This group was not up "just having coffee at 6:00AM in the morning" - THEY WERE LOUD people in their 50's! This is not the 6 Motel or La Quinta with cars starting up and stereos cranked up - and folks yelling where to put the suitcases. If you respect the neighbors, you don't have a shouting match in the morning on the lanai. Having TWO neighbors complain withing 10 minutes of each other indicates that they were VERY disrespectful of a very special place where people enjoy peace and quite that is rare on this planet. Imagine owning a house in a very special quiet neighborhood only to have a group of VERY loud people come in, scare off the morning doves, and disrespect the morning silence. Too bad if they feel offended by being asked to keep their noise levels THE SAME OR LIKE THE SURROUNDING PROPERTIES. If they did, they just might notice some of the small and wonderful things in Hawaii - like the sound of the surf, or the sounds of morning birds like the cardinals. NO, they scared them all away, and there is no way they could hear the surf. By their LOUD behavior, they offended far more people than what was in their group. They did not 'listen' and hear the morning. They do not understand aloha and respect for others. Blather on. Enuf said.

Home away from home!

We were so pleased with our stay at the Kona Retreat! The property is beautiful and easy to access. Plenty of parking (you will need a car if you stay here). The accommodations were lovely, everything we could possibly need was at hand. We arrived to a stocked fridge and beautiful views of the sunsets! Jeff & Janet were so friendly and helpful in helping us decide what to see and where to visit on the island. We want to return with our children and this is where we will stay if we do!

This is where you want to be

  • 5 of 5
I cannot stop raving to my friends, family and coworkers about this place. We were traveling with 3 other couples to attend a wedding in Kona. This made the perfect getaway from all the hectic wedding activities.
Convenient location right smack dab in the middle of the places we needed to be. Super super clean, very nice linens and bed things.
Loved the outdoor deck where we could rince the beach off and the ability to do a little laundry so we could pack light.
Didn't realize there were hosts nearby until our last night, you wont know either unless you need them.
A thank you Jeff and Janet for stocking the refrigerator and making our stay to pleasant. If ever we have the chance to come back to Kona, we will be staying with you! Aloha!

Amazing stay for my wedding!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house! It was clean, beautiful pool, back patio, deck, landscaping, plenty of parking, such a nice neighborhood and a very short drive to the beach! Well worth the money!!!! There were 8 adults and we all fit comfortably. My fiance and I stayed in the master suite, plenty of room for all our clothes and wedding attire.
Another couple upstairs with a detached full bath. Downstairs,
two groomsmen in a room with two full sized beds a little fridge sink and private bathroom (everything a hotel would have) and a straight shot sliding glass door to the pool. The room next to that has all the same except its a king.
It has a beautiful spacious kitchen and full sized fridge upstairs perfect for our two week stay. One trip to costco and walmart and you'd have plenty of room to store and cook it! Me not being much of an ocean swimmer, I loved the pool. I spent more time in it than the ocean! And had an ocean view!

We did not want to leave - and we are DEFINITELY coming back!

  • 5 of 5
My best friend and I wanted to show our husbands that we could plan a vacation as well as the 'boys' do, and BOY, did we ever show them! Yes, they wanted to go golfing, and yes, they wanted to go fishing but they totally enjoyed the beautful pool, the BBQ and how close the property was to all the things that they wanted to do. We loved the huge bedrooms, the totally clean linens and towels, and a kitchen anyone could cook and entertain in - as we did almost every night instead of going to the restaurants (they have a great selection of fresh seafood at COSTCO!). We will come stay at our new hawaiian 'hale' very soon.

The pictures do not do this property justice. Everything is just as stated - no surprises. The Kona Retreat was immaculate and ready for our arrival.
