Kahaluu House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
We invite you to escape to this beautiful, very private traditional Ocean Front Hawaiian home, just minutes from downtown Kona and a wide variety of other attractions.
This 2850 square foot home is perfect for family gatherings with a large master bedroom, a queen-bed bedroom, a 'bonus room' with bunk beds, and two and half baths. There is an additional studio-style 'ohana' (apartment) that is attached to the main house that has a queen bed, private bath, kitchen, washer/dryer and private entrance. The home is furnished in a comfortable, casual Hawaiian theme...some of the furniture is hand-made by Hawaiian artists. There are ceiling fans throughout the house. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything necessary to cook and then some, such as a blender, rice cooker, etc.
Open the French doors that stretch across the front of the home to allow in the Trade Winds, a wonderful respite from A/C. During the day, take a trip to the volcano, go whale-watching, visit the restaurants and shops of downtown Kona, or go deep-sea fishing. There are fascinating tide pools in the lava rocks right behind the house that are home to sea turtles, crustaceans, and an abundance of small fish. This house is a short walk from the sandy beaches of Magic Sands, or a half mile drive to the protected lagoon known for snorkeling. Be prepared to see gorgeous fish and gentle sea turtles!
Make sure to be home in the early evening, around 6pm, to relax in the hammock or on the lounge furniture and catch the famous Hawaiian sunset while drinking a Mai Tai! (see recipe below). During the winter months, watch carefully for the migrating humpback whales that swim. and sometimes breach, right in front of the house. If you're not in the mood to make your own Mai Tai, walk two doors down to Jameson's restaurant, which has a five star ocean view and wonderful food.
At night, each bedroom is filled with the sounds of waves crashing onto the lava rocks. This property is gated and walled which lets you relax and think of nothing but being part of a tropical paradise.

About Kathy Johns
We love to travel and of course, stay in nice places. Over the years, we've taken our 2 children many places they'll never forget. We hope our Kona beach home will become one of those unforgettable memories in your travels as well.

Why Kathy Johns chose Kahaluu
We came to Kona and fell in love with it, now we would like to share that with you.
What makes this house unique
It could not be more ocean-front than this, watching sea turtles, tropical birds, dolphins and whales while eating breakfast, remaining in the United States but feeling like you are a world away.
Guestbook comments from the manager
I wanted to thank you for the fantastic accommodations during our recent stay in Kona. They exceeded our expectations, and we did not miss a single sunset…and the sea turtles even showed up a few times!
I will definitely be in touch if my travels take me to the Big Island again!
