|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
From the lanai of this newly decorated OCEANFRONT home, see breaching humpback whales and spinner dolphins frolic by day, spectacular sunsets at twilight and watch the universe unfold into a star drenched velvet sky by night. And if you’re still awake, catch shooting stars or an orange marmalade moon sinking into the sea. Sip your favorite beverage and relax from the daily grind of snorkeling, fishing and sunning on the beautiful Gold Coast of Kona, Hawaii. Your sweet romantic island cottage comforts you as island trades rustle the palms and gentle surf lulls you to sleep. The things dreams are made of………………
French doors open onto the deck above the water’s edge. With the home's vintage tropical island motif in cool shades of greens, kick off your shoes and pad around the smooth parquet floor as you prepare breakfast and enjoy the dining nook awash with gentle light. Catch the latest on the 42 inch flat screen tv, or pick up emails from the high speed internet. Or not.
Open beam ceilings, a furo (Japanese soaking tub), two+ bathrooms, new appliances, washer and dryer, ample parking and a king size bed and queen sofa sleeper complete the package. If there are more than four in your party, there is a studio with its own kitchenette plus bath available to accommodate two with a double bed, small refrigerator, small flat screen TV and oceanfront views! We always rent the entire private home with studio to only one party. Remember there is no 'air conditioning' but from the ocean front breezes during the day and mauka (mountain) breezes during the evening!
'ON THE ROCKS' is a five minute walk from the popular White Sands Beach, noted for its excellent body surfing waves…,or a two minute drive to the renowned marine life park, Kahulu’u Beach to snorkel in the clear waters. Another minute or two and you’re at the Keauhou Shopping Center which offers a large grocery store, Bank of Hawaii, post office, restaurants and theater.
Contact us now to reserve your vacation on the Kona Gold Coast and soon you will be watching the sunsets from your lanai, and listening to the waves splashing on the lava rocks!

What a wonderful location for a vacation home! It's so close to snorkeling and family beaches as well as the shopping centers down the street! If you need groceries, there's a few places close by as well as farmer's markets and souvenir shops! This location is close to the highways as well! You'll have all the amenities you need and you don't even have to pack a lot since there are laundry machines on site! We felt so comfortable and secluded from the hustle and bustle of the tourist locations but we were also close enough to visit any attraction! The backyard and patio views are Majestic and we were so relaxed at every meal!
The daytime views and sunsets from this house were absolutely stunning - breaching whales and spinner dolphins right off the deck! The house has a pair of binoculars but you might want to bring and extra pair if possible..there is so much to watch. We loved this house and the location couldn't be better. Being situated down off Ali'i Drive did cut the traffic noise and the surf added the "white noise" that made sleeping easy. The house is well equipped and nicely furnished. We loved the deep Japanese soaking tub in the master bath. Having a enclosed garage with indoor stairway access into the kitchen was a another bonus - made loading/unloading of the car very easy and out of the inclement weather when it did rain briefly. We will definitely book this home again. If it ever comes up for sale, please let us know!
This house is perfectly situated on the water with a gorgeous view and excellent sun deck. However, for the price you pay I expected it to be in a bit better shape. The house is older and could use some basic repair/maintenance - appliances were broken and taped off to avoid use (refrigerator ice/water, coffee grinder), the deck has broken and loose boards, and the outside light fixtures worked spotily at best, so bring a flashlight or headlamp with you. The house does not have air conditioning and the week we were there we had a bit of trouble getting a good ocean breeze - it was warmer than most open air houses we've rented in Hawaii. We enjoyed cooking our own meals (would have been better if the kitchen was better equipped with quality pans) and eating on the deck with the fabulous view. Basically, you're paying for the view/location and you don't get a whole lot more than that. When we arrived, the house had not been cleaned, but the property manager responded quickly to remedy the situation and we only spent one night in an uncleaned house. For the price, there are better options out there.
Great deck right on the rocks. Very warm bedroom (west sun) with no a/c. Comfortable sofa (pull-out bed) in LR and big screen TV. Off Alii road (set back) from traffic.
This is a very well placed home smack dab on the water which we enjoyed immensely. We could fall asleep listening to the surf crash just outside. TV reception was a problem which even the caretaker couldn't seem to fix. Well, we had books to read out on the deck and watch the sunset and who needs TV in paradise anyway. The traffic noise on Ali'i was a bit of an annoyance late at night if you are a light sleeper, but i suspect that anywhere along that road would have the same situation.
What a great location for convenience to all amenities. Walk to one of the best snorkel beaches on the island. Shopping and dining minutes away. Whales, dolphins and sunsets off the lanai are second to none. Would definitely stay here again.
Walk to Keauhou Shopping Center with bank, grocery, drugstore, restaurants, theaters, post office, gas station, clothes and gift shopping. Golf courses, snorkeling, swimming, surfing, paddle boarding all very close by.
