Overview

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Step off the spacious oceanfront lanai, grab your surfboard, fishing pole, paddle board, fins and mask, boogie board or camera and walk our short hidden path to enter the ocean at Keolonahihi Cove! Or.... just sit back and be captivated by spinner dolphin, surfers, Humpback Whale action, canoe paddlers, para-sailors, swimmers, divers, inspiring tropical sunsets, romantic moonlight dancing on the water, exotic birds, and more.......

This place is a surfer's dream location!! It is also suitable for families, couples, romantic getaways, ocean sports enthusiasts, seniors, handicapped*, retreats, weddings, receptions, luaus, and business trips.

Our 2/2 vintage Hawaiian-style beach house overlooks Holualoa Bay and two of Kona’s premiere surfing breaks. Kamoa Point (Lyman's), a favorite surfing place of the Alii since the 1300's when the famous Chiefess Keolonahihi first rode her surfboard on the crests of the renowned 'left' surf break then known as, ' Kakala O Kamoa'. The cove named in her honor is accessed directly in front of our house in the same place where surfers have entered the ocean for hundreds of years. The Great King Kamehameha I learned to surf here while spectators viewed the surfing from a shoreline grandstand constructed of lava rocks along the north side of Kamoa Point in front of our house. You can enjoy this same awesome view and shoreline access the ancient Hawaiians enjoyed. If you surf, this is the best Kona has to offer. From the lanai, you can see the side view, or 'barrel' of the waves breaking at Banyans. Banyans, a great right break that is a short paddle across the bay, is another famous surfing spot. When the surf is big it can break clear across Holualoa Bay presenting a long wave that nearly connects Lymans and Banyans! This is an awesome spectacle to behold!

We enjoy incredible close interaction with the ocean from every room of our home and the newly expanded lanai. The panoramic view sweeps from Kamoa Point North to the Old Airport and beyond. Cruise ships are seen at the pier when in port. The ever changing ocean activity viewed from the lanai is an endless form of entertainment all hours of the day and night.

Comfortably furnished with big bamboo and Indonesian antique style furniture, stainless steel appliances, garbage disposal, microwave, dishwasher, washer, dryer, luxury bedding, towels and fully equipped kitchen. One bedroom has a king size carved four poster bed and the other bedroom has a Queen carved four poster. Each bedroom has bedside tables and lamps, a fan, dresser, and closet. There is one 7ft. big bamboo futon couch, another bamboo couch with two chairs and an ottoman and two leather recliners. A teak cabinet houses the hi-def LCD television/cable/wireless Internet, DVR and DVD player. We dine on the covered lanai, which has a teak dining table and six chairs, as well as a second glass/bamboo dining table. There is a King Size platform bed with a net canopy on the covered lanai as well as a big hammock for oceanside naps. The barbeque is always ready for your fresh catch!

This private retreat is hidden at the end of a short lane on the ocean side of Alii Drive just 3 miles from the Kona Pier. It's perfect location is within minutes to shopping, beaches, churches, beach parks, resorts and all that Kona has to offer.

We thoroughly clean all sinks, toilets, shower, floors, windows, screens, fans, appliances, vacuum mattresses, launder all bedding and towels, clean all outside areas, maintain yard and pond, and recycle/ remove all garbage after each guest. Weekly trash removal and recycling is provided. Fresh tropical flowers greet you with special Aloha!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Cathleen,

I meant to write in your guest book before we left but we ran out of time Thursday morning. Our week in Kona was paradise! We could not have chosen a better place to stay. Sitting on the lanai, drinking a cup of coffee and watching the surfers was the perfect way to start the day. Our two boys slept on the big bed each night (except for the last night when we had a huge storm). We hated to be away at night and miss the sunset from your place. The T.V. and WIFI were nice to have but our kids were happy to be unplugged. It was a family time that we will never forget.

Thank you for sending the list of restaurants. It was great to refer to them when we were out and about. We had a fantastic dinner at Jackie Rays. They were so family friendly and the food was incredible. We did the morning Fair Winds trip which was fun and great snorkeling, especially for beginners like us. We spent a few days at Hapuna Beach which was perfect for boogie boarding. The most incredible thing we did was the night manta ray snorkel. We ended up booking with Sea Hawaii Rafting. I left a card with the contact number. Chris and Super Dave could not have provided us with a better experience. Their knowledge and respect for the mantas was unparalleled. We were the only people on the boat and we were so well cared for. They made us feel so safe and taught us so much. We had a 14 foot manta(named Chloe) swim inches from us for our own personal show. It was an unbelievable experience.

Thank you for the use of your home. We hope to be back soon.

Honeymoon in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place!! The location was stunning! It was right on the water where we were able to watch whales jumping out of the ocean and surfers riding the waves. It was quiet, peaceful and tranquil. The lanai was amazing. It was private, huge and relaxing. The property owner was simply fantastic. She was warm and inviting and took great steps to ensure everything was just perfect for our honeymoon. The house was open and roomy, very well appointed with all the amenities and you just felt at home. The location was convenient to everything Kona has to offer! I highly recommend it as a great place to stay and an extremely good value for the price!!

Absolutely Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a wonderful and relaxing stay here. The home is quaint, comfortable, well stocked and full of Hawaiiana love. It is removed enough from town to give a respite from the hectic but close enough for convenient shopping and dining. The lanai is absolutely breathtaking and gave us hours of entertainment watching surfers and whales.

We were lucky enough to meet Cathleen upon our arrival. She is as full of aloha as the home is. We will return!

Owner's Response: Mahalo ~ ~ We are so glad you had a pleasant and relaxing time at our beach house. I agree it is "breathtaking" when the surf is up, the whales are spouting, and the dolphins are spinning! It sure is nice that you enjoyed our Hawai'ian style home where you can escape the crowds and still be close to shopping and dining. It was such a pleasure meeting you and we hope to see you again, soon! Much Aloha!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideal for our 2 adults 2 teens. As everyone has said, the verandah is fantastic!! We slept outside every night and loved watching surfers, whales & sunsets. 5 min drive from Kona, comfortable & very very relaxing. We all preferred this to hotel accomodation. Cathleen......thank you. It was very smooth transaction, and a pleasure to deal with you.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from 01/12/14 - 01/19/14. It would be hard to find a better location in the Kona area. We spent the vast majority of our time out on the lanai - it's huge. We saw many breaching whales right from the lanai and during our stay the surf was up for a couple of days so we enjoyed watching the surfers right out front too. The house is located towards the end of Alii Drive so you are close to great restaurants and entertainment. The house itself was very comfortable and had the needed kitchen/household items. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay.

Great location, very quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. The location is great if you want some privacy and aren't looking to be in the middle of everything. There is easy access to town and shopping and several close beaches. We had a great time exploring the park right next to the house. Sleeping out on the Lanai was amazing.

The property was clean and well maintained.

This house rocks!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property! Great location - right on the water! Cathleen did everything to make our stay fabulous. We were staying in the house to watch the Ironman race and we asked if they had any bikes. Cathleen went and found us some bikes we could ride to the start of the race!

The best thing about this house was definitely the lanai and the view to the water. Can't say enough about how awesome it was.
