YOUR PLACE OF REFUGE - PEACEFUL, BEAUTIFULLY FURNISHED HOME 150 YDS FROM BEACH

Honaunau House Rental Photos and Description

Complete use of House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Our home is your peaceful place of refuge and the answer to a relaxing visit on the Big Island of Hawaii. You will have exclusive use of a 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, 2 car garage house with laundry facilities in the Kona Paradise Subdivision, 25 miles south of Kona. The home is located at the bottom of Kaohe Road, 150 yards from Pebble Beach. It is an easy, non-exerting walk (both directions) to your own private, community beach.

You can hear the whales calling and the waves cascading onto the pebble shore. We have splendid views of the ocean and the mountains.

Our expansive wrap-around lanai is the perfect place to enjoy the cool ocean breeze, sip a delicious cup of 100% Kona or Kau coffee, check your email or eat a delicious papaya after awaking to the birds chirping and the beautiful hillside beckoning a morning hike. This is paradise!

Our 2-story home is clean and spacious with an open floor plan. It is three bedrooms, two baths with the living room, dining room, lanai, and kitchen on the upper floor and the garage and laundry below. The spacious master bedroom has its own sliding door onto the lanai, a plush pillowtop king size bed, walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom, and full wall of windows facing the southern view and lanai. The house has been professionally furnished from the Stanley Costal Living Resort Collection, Pottery Barn & Pottery Barn Kids. The sunlit guest bedroom features a pillowtop queen bed and shares a full bathroom with the third bedroom, containing two twin beds. All bedrooms, the living room and lanai have ceiling fans. The house is not air-conditioned; however, all windows are screened, there are two sliding doors onto the lanai, and plenty of ocean and mountain breezes. The expansive covered lanai (15' x 30') is easily accessed off of the living room and the master suite. You will find fantastic views and an enjoyable patio dining table and chairs to enjoy quiet mornings or sunset dinners.

The kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, table linens, cooking utensils, blender, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, hot water kettle, rice cooker, waffle maker and baking pans.

We are located 25 miles south of Kona and 32 miles south of the airport, off of Highway 11. It is a beautiful, lush and scenic drive past quaint towns and coffee farms. Pebble Beach is a tiny walk from our door. It is a private community, small black pebble beach that offers hiking trail access, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and diving access. We are also close to Ho'okeena Beach, Pu-uhonua o Honaunau (aka Place of Refuge) and fantastic Two Steps (Snorkeling), The Painted Church, and Kealakekua Bay (Capt Cook Monument). Volcano National Park is 70 miles to the south with great hiking and views.

You will love it here. Come enjoy the paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to send a quick thanks on our groups behalf for sharing your home with us this last week. The house was wonderful, the views were amazing and the beach was perfect (my personal favorite that we visited since you don't end up with sand covering everything!). We really appreciated all that the house had to offer and would certainly recommend your home to anyone visiting the island. Thanks again!

We have always enjoyed Hawaii and fell in love with the Big Island. We especially enjoy the Kona Paradise neighborhood because it is safe, quiet and friendly and one of very few residential areas that has easy access to the beach and coastline. It is located in a beautiful, lush (but not rainy) area of the island near many coffee farms. Our home has excellent proximity to the ocean. You can hear the whales at night and in the morning the birds chirp and your eyes are met with beautiful mountain and ocean views. It is so peaceful.

We love the quiet tropical location of Kona Paradise. It is close enough to a number of great attractions but away from the tourista of downtown Kona. We know you will love the tranquility of our beautiful home and the incredible ocean sounds and views.

GREAT HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our many thanks to Sharyl! This is a very comfortable home in an idealic location. We enjoyed our walks to the black sand beach. Pebble Beach, as mentioned before, can be tricky. Had a great time swimming there one day, Next day was too rough. 3rd time down, it looked good, but beware. The surf was pretty low, but the beach, rock, conditions made it so the shore break was actually about 10 yards out. This caused a pretty strong rip in places and an unbelievable undertow. Glad I had my fins on! If you are unsure of the conditions, it would be a good idea to take the body board along with you for your first dip of the day. At any rate, our favorite southern beach, Hookena, is just up the road. You can actually see Kona Paradise from the beach. We had a great time and would suggest this home to our friends.

A GREAT AND SECLUDED PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
The home was furnished wonderfully and was a great place to stay while visiting the big island. The beach, although it was a pebble beach, had great snokeling - we saw lots of different fish. I would recommend this home to anyone.

AWESOME VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation rental was fabulous. The pictures did not do it justice. Having the beach just a stones throw away worked well for us since my son was ill the first week of our vacation which limited our visiting the island. Being able to see the beautiful sunsets and the ocean from our lanai was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this property to my family and friends.

THREE GENERATION VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The house was just right for 3 of us (3 generations included 7 yr old) Quiet neighborhood, sound of waves to go to sleep by, wonderful view, close to beach. Everything we needed for the week, including lots of helpful info, suggestions for shopping, touristing, and an up-to-date island guidebook. Helpful to have washer/dryer. Quick response by owner when we had a question - great hospitality. Plenty to see and do in the area, but we were happy just hanging out at the house, sitting on the lanai and enjoying the view, birds, breezes, and flowers. Would have loved to spend another week or two there...

AWESOME HOME!

  • 5 of 5
The house is on a steep hill which is great because almost every home has sweeping views of the ocean. Yhis home has grand views from the living, master bedroom and open kitchen. The other great part of this location is that it is virtually on of the last home on the steep hill, so you dont have a long walk down to the virtually private pebble beach. It also doesnt get much traffic at all because of the seclusion, making it very peaceful.

The house itself is a newer construction. The owners are obviously very clean and very organized. Theyve chosen furnishings tastefully. It has a tropical feel.

They have a master bedroom with king bed, a guest or second bedroom with a queen bed and a childs room with two twin beds. Our two year old LOVED, the childs room as it was decorated with sharks, mermaids, whales. In fact the whole house was very child friendly.

The locationi is on the south side of the island. There are some awesome beaches within 30 minutes drive of the house. You are about an hour drive south of the airport. 2 hour drive from the valcano park.

We would definitely stay and recommend this place again!

ALASKANS VISITING THE BIG ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
We took out 13 months old on her first visit to Hawaii. The house was absolutely perfect, we enjoyed the large lanai, the view was fantastic. There were 4 of us total, three adults and one child and the house was set up perfect. The listing was very accurate, the photos were also very accurate, very clean, the owner was super helpful-she gave us ideas of where to go with our child, thoughts about travel times, ideas etc. I have already recommended the house to our friends. After reading the other review, we enjoyed the hill for a morning workout hike. We will try to rent this house when we go back to the Big Island.
