OCEANFRONT FAMILY GEM

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our home is on the ocean, protected by a lava wall and tide pools with an incredible 270-degree view looking north to Kailua-Kona and south to Kahalu'u Park on Keauhou Bay. Views of the ocean and gorgeous sunsets can be seen from every room in the house. The porch is a family-favorite for breakfast, lunch, reading, napping, and sunset dining. Excursion boats, deep sea fishing and snorkel boats and spinner dolphins pass directly in front of our home. During the winter months, migrating and breaching humpback whales are seen from the porch.

The upstairs has an open, full kitchen with granite counter tops and bamboo flooring which opens to a dining room and living room. Cooks in the kitchen can view the ocean and mountains while cooking. Upstairs has a master bedroom with queen bed and bath. Two bedrooms - one with king bed and the other with two double beds - are downstairs. The downstairs bedrooms share a large tiled bathroom with a huge shower with double heads. Both bedrooms open out through sliders into the garden and ocean. All three bedrooms have ocean views while lying in bed.

The most-popular picnic and snorkel beach of Kahalu'u Park is 1/2 mile south. Body surfing and surfer activities are found at White or Magic Sands Beach, 1/2 mile north. Off the front lava rocks, one can drop into the water to scuba, snorkel or kayak. Masks and snorkels, towels, boogie boards, fishing equipment, beach chairs, hammocks, portable BBQ, coolers are provided.

We have cable TV upstairs and down, as well as internet.

Our home is on a double lot on the ocean so you'll have a bit more privacy and, if you have kids, they have a grass yard to play around on.

VINTAGE HAWAII

  • 4 of 5
We loved this comfortable classic Hawaiian style home with an unbeatable oceanfront location. The very large lot affords exceptional privacy. The only negative feature is that the 2 bedrooms downstairs can be accessed only by an outside staircase and they do have a bit of a "basement" feel although they are both attractive and well appointed. The house is incredibly well stocked with beach equipment and the kitchen is fully equipped for serious cooking. Very comfortable and very "homey" place to enjoy Kona.

DA SLIPPAH LADIES RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This beach house was perfect for us ladies to relax and adventure at the ocean's side. We enjoyed the sounds of the ocean as well as what it had to offer, like fishing, night divers, honu, sting rays swimming by, spectacular sunsets etc. The house was very comfortable, keep in mind it's a beach house, an awesome beach house with everything you need. I would recommend it to everyone. If you have young children, make sure you are with them at the ocean. Fun, fun, fun! Thank-you very much!
P.S. the housekeeper was there in a jiffy when we had a problem that we caused

GREAT FUN!

  • 5 of 5
Our experience started with exceptional communication and service from the owner. Everything about the yellow house was perfect for our family...enough bedrooms for privacy as well as great spaces for everyone to gather. The porch was our favorite! Such a special place for lasting memories:-)

OOPS! THIS IS THE REVIEW I MEANT TO SEND

  • 2 of 5
Hate to rain on other reviews, not sure we even stayed in the same house that they did, but other than the grand view from the lanai and the house being well stocked and clean, it was otherwise a disappointment.

1) Their ad does not state that 2 of the 3 bdrm's are downstairs and you have to go outside, open a padlock to gain entrance. Once downstairs, you are unable to sleep with sliding doors open for a breeze as the screens do not lock. It was 86-87 every day for the 2 weeks we were there. I called the owner and he told me to go to Target, buy a fan and he would reimburse. No $ yet.
2) Be careful using the shower downstairs. It’s a great shower, but it has slick ceramic file and it slopes toward the drain. I wrenched my knee in this shower and spent 1 day using ice.
3) The slider upstairs is old and doesn’t have a lock. There are holes drilled through
both doors with a pin to insert to keep it locked. Upon our arrival, the pin was
broken and we used a small screwdriver to stick through the hole to lock
. house while gone
4) Ceiling fan in living room is so old, the finish has come off it it, the fan blades.
are bowed doward from humidity, and is not useful
5) The ad says you can see the mountains and ocean from inside the house. This is
partially true. To see mountain, look past the guardrail, highway, and peek above . the treeline
6).The bdrm upstairs is noisy for sleeping esp. weekends, because of traffic.
Owner told me otherwise when I asked about noise.
7) The window frames in living room are rotting away due to “humidity” as well.
as is the underneath part of the sill on the outside of this window
( 8 Paint is peeling from the ceiling in upstairs bathroom. The upstairs toilet
had no wax seal and moves freely on the floor. If you don’t put it in exact spot,
There is slight sewage smell.

I could show/tell more, but this is more than enough. I would only advise you that sometimes things aren’t as they appear to be. P.S. One of the boards on the lanai is loose, so be careful.

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This house was fantastic... the view was amazing, there was a rockpool at the end of the garden for our four-year old to play in--it worked for everyone in our family. And the beds are comfy too! The owners went the extra mile, providing detailed instructions on where to find everything, and guidebooks in the house helped us work out what to do in the area. Would recommend it to anyone travelling to Kona. A perfect holiday.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
This charming home has tons of personality and history. It was very clean and extremely well organized with tons of books, notes, and brochures documenting everything you would want to know about the local area (activities, shopping, sightseeing etc) and the island as a whole. It is completely stocked with everything you may need to enjoy your stay on the island. The only thing you need to bring is your clothes. They have bikes, snorkeling gear, kayak, beach toys and bags not to mention all amenities if you just want to stay home and enjoy the oceanside sounds and views of the whales and dolphins that we saw on our first night upon arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was warm and welcoming and felt very private despite being conveniently located on Ali'i drive. We would highly recommend it to anyone.
