KUAKINI GARDEN HOUSE, A VACATION HOME WALKING DISTANCE TO KONA VILLAGE

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

Great location and comfortable accommodations for four to six guests

The Kuakini Garden House is a great place for the cost-conscious vacationer. The house has a beautiful spacious upstairs unit perfect for one couple or family. There is also a studio bedroom downstairs with two twin beds, a bathroom (shower), and a small kitchen. The two-story house is surrounded by tropical gardens and a nearly perfect segment of the historic (circa 1850) Great Wall of Kuakini. The house is conveniently located less than a mile from the quaint Kailua Kona village with its restaurants, shops, nightlife, farmer’s markets, Alii Drive, historical landmarks such as the Hulihee Palace, the Kailua pier (where the Ironman race begins), and beaches.

There are two bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and the second bedroom a queen bed and a bathroom. The downstairs studio has two twin beds. There is a covered lanai off the upstairs living room with a view of the ocean. This is a great place for enjoying your coffee while reading the local newspaper (If you wish, a daily newspaper is included in the rental). There's also a screened-in lanai off the master bedroom perfect for storing bikes, and exercising. You'll find a full kitchen complete with granite counter tops, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, a full range, 18 cubic foot refrigerator, coffee maker, blender, huge pantry, and all the dishes and utensils needed for in-home dining. Maximum occupancy upstairs is four people and two in the downstairs studio.

The units are not air-conditioned, however, there are ceiling fans throughout the house.

There's a 42-inch flat screen TV in the living room featuring Direct TV with SHOWTIME and HBO, and a BluRay Player. The studio has a 22 inch flat screen with Direct TV.

The garden backyard has a barbecue gas grill and for your laundry needs you'll find a large capacity front-loading washer and dryer in the backyard laundry cabinet.

Beach chairs, beach towels, and coolers will help you enjoy our beautiful nearby beaches.

Only the upstairs and the studio bedroom of the Kuakini Garden House are available for guests.

The owner and his family might be in the downstairs unit when they are on-island keeping the property maintained and the house beautiful.

Sorry, no pets are allowed and thank you in advance for not smoking in the house and on the premises. Six is the maximum number of guests and there's off-street parking for guest vehicles (owner's green truck is there too).

I live part time in Eugene, Oregon now, but I spent most of my life in California (UCLA 1964). I come to Kona whenever I can.

David Winett purchased this house in 2011

I've been coming to the Big Island to visit friends for the past 30 years - now I'm happy to have a home here and to be able to share it with others.

Walk to town, bike to beaches, who needs a car!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION....AND PLEASANT!

  • 5 of 5
We were pleasantly surprised at the spacious accomodations and enjoyed the neighborhood in which it is located. We rented the entire house for our group of seven and had room to spare. Each floor is a self-contained unit. Six of us could have stayed on the upper floor. Each room had an overhead fan along with one exhaust fan for the unit We were able to cook some meals, and enjoyed sitting out on the 'balcony/porch". It is in a neighborhood and not "downtown", but within walking distance of central Kona. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to friend/family. The owner and manager were extremely responsive to questions and needs. Thanks for a lovely stay.

GREAT HOUSE WITH GREAT LOCATION TO EXPLORE THE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
Six friends stayed at this house and it was wonderful for each of us to have our own bed and yet room enough to all hang out in the living room. We enjoyed the lanai on the upper/main level and the quiet location in a housing area felt like we were locals. It was great staying in the house to have all the amenities of home. The kitchen was well stocked with all the dishes and cookware we needed and it was so nice having access to an ice chest and beach chairs. We traveled extensively around the island and the house felt like it was in the center all of it, easy to access the northern, southern, and eastern areas yet close to grocery stores and the main cute shopping strip and restaurants.

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Great place to stay! Has everything you need to feel at home. Enough space for two, even three families with kids. The house is so conveniently located, close to everything-downtown Kona, the airport, Costco, Target, etc. The front and back yards of the house are exceptional and the morning sounds coming from the trees are unforgettable!!!

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
Our family gathered from four states to spend Christmas together in Kona. We found this home and had the most wonderful time ever. It is beautifully maintained and the owner is very easy to work with. The three separate apartments allowed us to share a home for meals but folks had their own space when they wanted it. There were beautiful decks, we could walk into town, and we will absolutely rent this home again!
