Overview

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

Great location and comfortable home like accommodations forup 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 a single traveler, one or two couples or a family. The rental includes 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, farmers' 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. There is a large bathroom with a shower/tub upstairs. 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 breakfast and delicious Kona coffee, as well as an afternoon refreshing beverage with the ocean view and trades cooling you off. There's also a screened-in lanai off the master bedroom. This is sort of a sitting room for the master bedroom and has space 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 premium channels), 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).

Great comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the garden house. We were 6 adults and there was plenty of space for all of us. The hammock and grounds are beautiful and calming. Even though the house is smack dab in the middle of a residential area, aside from some dog or motorcycle noises, it was very peaceful. David and Ethan were easy to work with and we really enjoyed our stay. The lack of air conditioning was okay as long as we used the fan and gathered on the breezy lanai in the afternoon. I recommend this house!

Comfortable & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. This rental property is perfectly located; close enough to town to walk to shops/restaurants, but tucked up in the hills behind Alii drive, making it a quiet Kona get-away.

David, the owner, was very accommodating, making sure everything was perfect for my stay. The house is well outfitted for meal preparation if you choose to eat in. Laundry on the property was a nice bonus!

I'd recommend this property for it's proximity, but also it's tranquility, slightly away from the hubbub of Alii Drive.

excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a really great house. We were a group of 6 and stayed for 8 nights and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious and comfortable and the yard is very nice and quite private. We really enjoyed sitting out on the lanai as well. We cooked dinner at the house about half of the nights and it had everything we needed (especially enjoyed grilling fresh fish out back). The shops and restaurants of Kailua are all just a few blocks away and easy to walk to - a little bit of a hill to get back though. All in all we enjoyed our stay immensely - definitely recommended!

great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed being within walking distance of the Kona Village and the steep hills back to the house was great for working off the Scandinavian shaved ice... The house and studio were well equipped and we really enjoyed eating dinner on the lanai each night. The yard is very well maintained but make sure you put on a bit of bug repellent as those dang ankle biters are hungry. Dave made sure we had everything we needed and gave us a great recommendations for a delicious Thai restaurant just down the street. We would defiantly recommend this home.

wonderful family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in Kona. With 6 people in our family we had lots of room. David the owner made us feel right at home. The house has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. We especially enjoyed the lanai, all our meals outside looking into a well kept garden and a distant view of the water. The walk to town is about 3 blocks with a bit of a hill. We found the walk to be no problem. I would Recommend this property and will go back.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property. We were a family of 5 that stayed here for 13 days. It was a destination wedding for our son. He stayed at a nearby resort with their friends. We had everyone over for a BBQ the first night they arrived and a pizza party on their last night. This place has all the conveniences of home. There's a large and well landscaped backyard. And, a roomy lanai and living room for an indoor gathering. There's also a washer and dryer for you laundry. And, there's an ice chest, beach chairs & beach towels for the beach. There's enough room in the driveway for 3 cars (actually 4 cars but the owner has his car parked there). Every morning we would have our breakfast out on the lanai. The view of the vegetation was nice and colorful. And, the sites and sounds of the birds were soothing. There was also a mongoose that we often saw running about the yard. The only regret that I have is that we were not there during mango season as there is a large mango tree in the back yard. The tree was in full bloom, so I suspect it bears a lot of fruit. The owner and property manager provided excellent customer service. This site is well worth the very reasonable price. It's also a great location with lots of places within walking distance.
