|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
This property is in an ideal location for enjoying The Big Island. Close to the Ocean, beaches, shopping, the Saturday farmers market, golfing, fine dining, casual restaurants, and many water activities. The Ocean Breeze Kona Home is located in a well established small community of homes built along the Keauhou Bay. This is a great spot, safe neighborhood and just a few miles from downtown Kailua Kona.
I am a long time resident of Hawaii, a Pediatrician, with a love for the tropics, Paddling and all that Hawaii has to offer. I moved to Connecticut so my girls could go to better schools and I hope to retire in Kona some day in my empty nest years.
Sandra purchased this house in 1988
This property is ideally suited for living a Tropical Lifestyle as well as being close to medical facilities, fine restaurants, shopping and lots of water activities. From here you can take long beautiful walks by the water, walk to a Farmers Market, to the movies or to go Golfing.
As soon as you walk through the front door you will see why I fell in love with this house. The ocean breeze, the warm balmy nights, the proximity to fun, food and frolicking all caught my fancy and I had to buy it. This was 25 years ago .... you might say, it's a keeper.
The property was just beautiful and comfortable.
All you need was there, like dishes, cooking item and beach&pool items.
The up stairs bathroom was so gorgeous.
It was just few minutes to sea and the neighborhood was beautiful too.
The property manager was very kind and helpful.
I really wanted to stay more longer.
Our stay definitely exceeded our expectations. The house is great and well equipped for larger groups. For example, there are 2 dishwashers and 2 sinks in the kitchen. I ditto everything that people have already written: great views, great pool, easy "beach" access, etc. I hope to add some of the little details that I wish I would have known and that I think most people would appreciate. The first is that the beach right by the house, is not a traditional beach as you might think. It's all rock and we didn't get in the water once from the water access close to the house. Not a big deal, but just so you're aware that you'll have to go somewhere else to get in the ocean. There's lots of nearby beaches so not to worry. On that note, the sidewalk to the beach access literally runs right past the property. Once, when sitting by the pool, a surfer asked to use the hose to rinse off as it's 6 inches from the sidewalk. We didn't care, but did have a bit of concern when we would obviously be away from the home (i.e. no vehicle in the driveway, all lights off, etc.) that the house may not be very secure while we were gone. Again, no worries and we didn't feel unsafe at any time, but just something to be aware of and that people will be walking down the sidewalk quite close to the home. We have rented many, many beach houses in the past and were so appreciative of the small amenities of the house. I'm not sure if these are always there, but I will say it was SO NICE to have toilet paper stocked, tissues, ziploc baggies, dish soap, and even laundry detergent there! There were also a decent variety of spices and oil in the house as well. Again, it was such a treat to have these little things provided for you, as you know full well you'd never be able to use all of those things up in a week or two if you had to buy them yourself. There are also multiple pool noodles, beach ball, boogie boards, 2 coolers on wheels, 2 beach chairs, and a beach umbrella at the house. Again, so grateful not to have to buy these things! There are two grills: one gas and one charcoal. So why 4 stars instead of 5? Just some smaller things that I wish would have either not been an issue at all or would have been fixed promptly: one of the dishwashers did not work, the stove top repeatedly stopped working throughout the week, and the gas grill didn't seem to be functioning properly as it could not retain heat. So cooking was a challenge nearly every day. Overall, would definitely stay again!
The whole experience from arrival until we had to go home was top notch.
Thank you so much for sharing your home
Our group of eight had an incredible stay in Hawaii, and the house could not have been more perfect. It is right next to the harbor, so boating and snorkeling excursions were easy and a lot of fun. It was always a pleasure to come back to the beautiful, clean and open spaces at the house. The lay out made it easy for everyone to gather in the same place for meals and family time. The main balcony not only has an incredible view of the ocean, but you can hear the waves crashing from inside. We went horseback riding, beaching, and hiking, but just watching sunsets from the house was a highlight! The beds are incredibly comfortable, the kitchen is easy to navigate and fully equipped, the location is prime, and the pool is refreshing. It truly felt like home.
Unbelievable view of ocean and spacious as could be, this home was a dream!
This house had everything we needed. Lots of space,great pool,awesome ocean view, and located in a nice neighborhood. We felt right at home and would love to come again.
