OPEN April 10 on at Spacious Retreat in Paradise

$125/night or $850/wk. + FREE Kona Coffee!

Come home to this spacious and comfortable ohana (in-law unit) with garden views and its own entrance. A NON-smoking property. Lounge in the large bedroom-sitting room, fully furnished with pillow-top king bed, glass-top table and chairs, recliner, TV with expanded cable, and free wireless internet access. Large bathroom has slate shower, shelving, and lots of fluffy towels. Full kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to create fabulous meals when you don't feel like dining out, and its conveniently stocked with basic foods, spices, & condiments.

Awake to the sounds of tropical birds. Sip Kona coffee in comfy chairs at your glass-topped table on the patio outside, surrounded by palms. Pick tropical fruits from the garden in season.

A comfortable elevation at 900', great for relaxing after trips to the beach or town. A short trip to everything, yet a world apart in a quiet neighborhood setting. Off-street parking, washer dryer available for your use.

Affordable, with Breakfast in Your Time Zone: Our ohana is a fantastic value. Why settle for a cramped hotel room or studio or a 'Continental breakfast' when you can enjoy a great, affordable ohana (in-law unit) with tropical fruit and Kona coffee. Since you may be coming from the Mainland, and might be hungry long before we awake, we fill your ohana with plenty of goodies, available when you're ready to eat, like papaya, banana, star fruit, cereal, oatmeal, and soy milk. You are welcome to pick fruits from our trees in season, including lemons, oranges, papaya, mango, and star fruit. Use the washer/dryer.

We fell in love with Hawaii because of the Aloha spirit. We want others to enjoy the spirit of Aloha, too. Many of our guests have toured the island and returned to us before leaving Kona. All have raved about our comfortable, clean, affordable ohana, our home and hospitality. They say this was their favorite place to stay in Hawaii, and a better value than other places they stayed. They vow to return and to send friends.

All the Comforts of Home - Well-equiped Ohana: You'll find everything you need in our well-equipped kitchen to prepare fabulous meals when you don't feel like going out or want to save money for adventures. Our full kitchen includes full sized refrigerator-freezer, 4 burner gas stove and oven, and all major appliances: Grind and brew fresh coffee to sip on the patio or lanai. Use our great collection of pots and pan, salad spinner, rice cooker, and cooking utensils to cook at home, including toaster oven, toaster, microwave, blender, rice cooker, coffee mill and pot, extensive glassware, wine glasses, pitchers, and utensils.

Prepare snacks and meals for day trips and take along goodies in baggies and totes. Use cold packs in the cooler. No need to buy all of the things you need only a little bit of. We stock the fridge with condiments, salad dressings, soy sauce, jams and syrup, peanut butter, mayo, soy sauce, oils and vinegars. We stock cupboards with coffee, teas, sweeteners, spices, herbs, rice, pastas, cereal and soy milk.

Going to the beach? Boogie boards, fins, chairs, umbrellas, cooler, beach towels are all available.

Nowhere Else on Earth - Hawaii's Unique Offerings: The Big Island, the most exciting island in Hawaii, has 11 of the world's 13 ecosystems, from snow-capped mountains in winter, towering 14,000' above the ocean, to tropical rain forests. All this on an island almost 200 miles around. Kilauea Volcano adds land to the island daily, as lava flows into the ocean. See Thurston Lava Tubes in Volcano National Park, a short walk through a primordial forest of towering ferns. Star-gaze at Mauna Kea Observatory. Visit ancient heiau (temple) where King Kamehameha united the Hawaiian islands. Watch migrating whales and spinner dolphins at Kua Bay. Paddle out to Captain Cook's monument in Kealakekua Bay where the first known Europeans met Hawaiians. Meet Hawaiians, a truly diverse culture. Hula. Go to a real luau. Enjoy the sport of Alii (royalty), surf the waves. Swim with gazillions of colorful fish and sea turtles at Kealakekua Bay. Lie on a black sand at Punalu'u. Go coffee tasting at Kona farms. Discover your own secret treasures. Live aloha.

Wonderful Stay !!

This was our first visit to Hawaii and our hostess and host made it very memorable! We absolutely enjoyed our stay and their hospitality, friendliness, and recommendations for places to visit during our week there. Caryl and John were easy to communicate with and very approachable; we felt truly welcomed. Whenever we travel back to Kona we will stay with them. Being 1000 feet above sea level made it 10 degrees cooler, we watched the birds, and listened to them singing in the morning. Many thanks!

Best ohana in Kona

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
We had been staying in Mountain View in a yurt. It was cold at 3000 ft with lots of vog. Caryl and John had a cancellation and we left for sunny, warm Kona. They were wonderful hosts. Provided us with fresh local fruits, coffee, kitchen supplies and condiments. They were so warm and welcoming. We were away from the tourist crowds downtown but only minutes from anything we needed or wanted. Very short drive to the best beaches on the island. We were supplied with snorkel gear, boogie boards, towels, coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas. They gave us tips and directions to out of the way beaches and great restaurants. The ohana is beautiful...king sized bed, beautifully appointed and supplied bath. We sat on our private lanai each morning with kona coffee and listened to tropical sounds in a quiet residential neighborhood. They even invited us to their deck to watch the sunset.

Definitely check out A Bay at Waikoloa and Beach 69. Thank you Caryl and John!!! We we definitely return.

Wonderful Stay in Kailua Kona

From the minute we arrived, Caryl was extremely welcoming, generous, and full of information. We had absolutely everything we needed. Because of the full kitchen, we were able to cook dinner a few nights with all of the pots/pans provided to help save a little money. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and we were able to sleep with the doors and windows open every night. There are plenty of stores and restaurants within driving distance (we had to stop at Target a couple of times for some necessities). Caryl had home-grown papaya waiting for us in the fridge. I would absolutely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

Lovely vacation spot!

The apartment rental was clean and provided all the services and amenities described in the listing and more. The owners are very informed about the island and gave us great tips of things to see and do. It was a bit far from the beaches, so be sure to rent a car, but the place made up for that by being far enough up the slope to be at an elevation where sleeping was very comfortable. We had a perfect vacation in large part due to the comfort and convenience of this rental.
