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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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.
