Retired couple enjoying the Big Island.

Paul & Amy Blessington purchased this house in 2009

Finding the perfect location in Kona is not so easy. You want to have great ocean views in a quite neighborhood away from the highway, while still being minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shopping.

Less than 10 minutes away is Kahalu’u beach. Kahalu’u is widely regarded as one of the top snorkeling spots in all of Hawaii. The variety and quantity of tropical fish at Kahalu’u is fantastic. For those first getting used to snorkeling, the private pool is a safe and easy way to get used to wearing a mask and snorkel. The location is also close to many other beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops. Choose among a wide variety of ocean and outdoor activities or simply just relax on the patio enjoying an intense ocean sunset.

SUPERB CONDITION, AMAZING VIEW, GREAT LOCATION, VERY FRIENDLY & HELPFUL LANDLORD

Superb condition, amazing view, great location, very friendly & helpful landlord
  • 5 of 5
We traveled across four different Hawaii Islands and rented private accommodation in all cases. Some where OK and some were not. However, this condo at Kailua-Kona was the BEST of all.

1. Landlord: The landlord is a very nice and friendly couple. From the first e-mail they were very quick to respond, always helpful and polite and always addressing our questions and concerns. After we booked, they even sent us a list of places to eat, best beaches and other fun activities. In addition, once we had arrived their great service continued and we were in touch asking some questions and they always responded ASAP. We communicated via e-mail and had always our privacy!

2. Condo: The condo is in a superb condition. It was so clean and neat. We thought it is brand new or recently refurbished. (Other places were depreciated, but not this one!). It has everything you need. Including kitchen appliances, washer, dryer, clean towels. You just buy groceries, move in and enjoy! The view from the lanai is so amazing. We had breakfast every morning and you can see all the way to the sea and coast. Very romantic. The garden of the place was well kept and full of beautiful Hawaii flowers.

3. Location: The location is really, really great. It is in a calm and quite residential area up the hill. So you really have your own privacy and there is no noise at night. However, if you drive down the hill in about 5 minutes, you end up at Kailua-Kona. In fact, from the condo to several restaurants Google Map's navigation showed 8 minutes drive, which was correct. So you can quickly get to areas with dozens of restaurants and shopping. We sometimes ate out at night, and sometimes went to pick up food and enjoy sunset at the lanai for dinner.
The location is 15-30 minutes drive to various beaches (depending on which one you'd like to go).
As for shopping groceries, we went to Walmart which was about 10 minutes drive.

We would give this condo 7 stars if we could. Everything was really smooth and perfect. We had such a great time and will return next time we visit Big Island!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

  • 5 of 5
If I could give 10 stars I would. This place has everything you need from the bathroom to the bedroom, kitchen and even things for your trip to the many beautiful beaches that are very close by. The home seats on the side of the hillside and has a amazing view of Kona bay. Close to great restaurants, beaches, and activates. It was great to sit out on the lani each morning and night and watch birds and butterfly's landing here and there. Can't wait to go back.

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying in a vacation rental and we will never go back to a hotel. Paul and Amy were so helpful. They respected our privacy, but were there when we needed them. And the room and property was beautiful with an amazing view. It made the stay so nice, it felt like going home every night. And all of the beach things that they provided were extremely useful. Awesome beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, nice snorkel gear, body boards... it made it so easy to go and spend a day or just a few hours at any beach we choose. The landscaping is beautiful and it was in a nice and safe neighborhood away from everyone, but very close to all of the wonderful things that Kailua Kona has to offer. And a great central location for anything that you want to do on the Island.
We loved it and can't say Mahalo enough for the wonderful place to stay!! As one other reviewer said, the only bad thing about this place was having to leave!!

GREAT PROPERTY ON THE BIG ISLAND!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to stay in the Kona area. Quiet, private, and very comfortable. The unit was exceptionally clean, and so much better than staying in a condo or a hotel. Pool that looks out over the ocean, nice bbq grill on the lanai, and plenty of extras like beach equipment and towels for guests to use. Thanks Amy and Paul for great hospitality.

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS - 5 STARS

  • 5 of 5
It didn't take long for us to realize why this rental is booked virtually 100% of the time. It's located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood, great view, very clean, modern and well appointed. The snorkel gear was in great condition, as were the kayaks (may be a challenge to load them on a car roof without a rack but they fit fine in the back of our Jeep Liberty - gate open, they stuck out 3-4 feet). Beach chairs were nice and comfy too.
The owners made it clear that they were there to help if we needed anything and at the same time, were mindful of our privacy.
Places worth checking out are Waimea town (farmers market was great), Pololu lookout, south point, Volcano NP (of course), Kona Joe's coffee, Coffee Shack (nice breakfast and view), Sam Choy's restaurant (looks like a lively happy hour there too-great atmosphere).
AC was not necessary in the unit as there were breezes and 3 ceiling fans. Bed was very comfortable with a memory foam topper. We liked that staples like soap, napkins, tp etc. were provided and the bag of ice in the freezer was a nice touch. Suggestions: plastic tumblers for cocktails, metal grilling utensils and a light in the bedroom closet. Complaints: none.

COMFORTABLE, CLEAN, CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from our stay on the Big Island. We stayed the entire 10 days at this property. I am incredibly picky about cleanliness and this unit far surpassed every other VRBO property I've ever stayed at. In fact, it was cleaner than most high-end hotels I've stayed at! I was very impressed. I also have pretty severe allergies to scents/perfumed laundry products and thankfully the owners don't use any harsh cleaners or smelly laundry products. This is a HUGE bonus for me!

The pictures on the VRBO website definitely portray the apartment as it is - great views, conveniences, and comfort. If I have to point out anything slightly negative, the only thing I can think of is that the lack of a dishwasher is a bummer, but it was a very minor inconvenience - just something I'm not used to. The kitchen had all of the other little conveniences and it was very comfortable for me to cook in it. Overall, the unit was extremely cozy (and I don't mean small when I say cozy!).

We also found the location to be quite convenient and central. It is set on the hillside but it takes less than 10 minutes on non-busy streets to get down to Kailua-Kona. It is also extremely quiet, which translates to relaxing and no problems sleeping! :)

The owners were unobtrusive and extremely helpful. Paul helped us plan a few hikes and extremely accurate information on other activities, including tipping us off to the new "Saddle Road" that took about 30 minutes off our trek to Hilo. The use of the beach bag, extra beach towels, lunch coolers, and kayaks was also incredibly fun and helpful.

This unit was far above any other VRBO property we've ever rented and we will definitely stay here again when we return to the Big Island.
