Overview

Holualoa House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, ocean front property

Please note: We do not maintain the calendar on this page. To access availability information please visit konabeachhouse.com.

The four bedroom home is built in the classic Hawaiian mauka - makai (mountain - ocean) fashion. It is one room wide with 10 foot high ceilings designed to capture the sea breeze during the day and the mountain air at night. The shady indoor and outdoor lanais provide an extraordinary view of the ocean and the Kona Coast. With modern amenities, the atmosphere of the beach house is little changed from the 1940's and 50s.

Two bedrooms have king beds, one has a queen and one has 2 twins. There is a roomy, comfortable living room with large flat-screen TV, a large dining room and comfortable lanai where we spend most of our time. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and service for 20. The large lawn has room for your wedding reception or a good game of croquet, touch football or volleyball. Free wi-fi and telephone to US and Canada.

When rental is combined with the Seaside Zen Cottage (446243) the property is ideal for weddings, family reunions or gathering of good friends.

About Valerie Ossipoff

Ian was born on Hawaii Island and this home was built by his parents in the 1940's. Now living in California, this is their place for rejuvenation. Barbara likes to play golf on one of the many magnificent courses on the Island. Dylan and Ian snorkel and scuba dive. We take amazing hikes down the Waipio and Waimanu Valleys. Ian's fisherman friends fly fish for aku, ahi, and au (marlin). In the morning, one can join the runners on Alii Drive and run the four miles to Keauhou, the finish line for the Ironman Triathlon. The less ambitious float in the lagoon just before sunset and then at the cocktail hour watch for the green flash from the open lanai. In the evenings, we often arrange for Tina (our on-site caretaker) to cater a gourmet meal - something lean and healthy with organic greens, veggies and grilled fresh-caught deep water ocean fish served al fresco on picnic tables on the lawn.

Valerie Ossipoff purchased this house in 1946

Why Valerie Ossipoff chose Holualoa

When Robbie and Marjorie were married in 1938, Majorie gave up her job, her professorship and her profession to move from Honolulu to Paauilo and become a plantation manger's wife. She had absolutely no regrets. Her principal concern was her husband. Robbie was never in good health, his war wounds and the stress of running the plantation, while pursuing his agenda of social reform and industrial innovation took a toll.

Marjorie insisted that they find a place to go to get away from the Plantation. At first they took weekends off. They would drive four hours to Kona and stay at the Kona Inn. In 1946, they decided to buy a lot on the ocean. It was a magical place. There were three sandy beaches and a little lagoon where their children could learn to swim and snorkel. The promontory in front of the lot offered views up and down the Kona Coast. They would build a house. The place would come to be known as the Plantation Manager's Beach Home.

What makes this house unique

From our lanai you can watch the humpback whales in the winter, the porpoises coming to feed every morning and the spectacular sunsets every night. It is the place we love to bring our friends (if too many we spill over to the Seaside Zen Cottage, our property next door). We can't imagine a nicer spot.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a spectacular time! We enjoyed a vacation of a lifetime with our two married daughters and their husbands. We were celebrating 3 of them graduating with their masters degrees. Everything went just as planned. The house is stunning and we just had such a good time hanging out there and exploring the island. I think we covered all four corners. We did a all day hike at Volcano National park and then one day we did horseback riding. I really can’t think of anything we would change.

My husband and I booked this property for our wedding in February. The photos do not do the houses or the property justice. We booked both the plantation house and the beach cottage for 7 nights. Both houses are exceptional! There is so much character in each and it truly feels like being at home. The kitchen were well stocked, the beds were very comfortable, and the houses were so clean. We enjoyed making breakfast everyday and enjoying it out on the lanai as well as cocktails at sunset. There is nothing better than falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean right outside your window. Plus, the little lagoon on the property was excellent for snorkeling and visiting with the resident sea turtles!

The property manager Valerie is excellent with email contact and the on-site manager, Tina, is absolutely wonderful. We had a little trouble with the automatic gates, but Tina was very quick to assist with the problems. It probably had a lot to do with several vendors and guests coming and going on the day of the wedding.

The property is walking distance into town and there are several amazing restaurants in the area.

I can honestly say that we will book this property for EVERY stay in Kona and would not hesitate to recommend it to everyone traveling to the Kona area on the Big Island.

We have not come down from the cloud yet, despite being back into our daily routine at home.
We truly had a memorable family holiday, enjoying the lovely house and grounds, and the perfect weather and surrounds.
Tina was marvellous and made us very welcome and we felt secure with her and the 2 ‘guard dogs’!

Many of our guests come armed with a list of things to do - and the choices are endless - but end up having a hard time tearing themselves away from the peace and beauty of resting by the ocean in a hammock with a cool drink and a good book! Our website has many suggestions for water sports, volcano visits, fern forest hikes, horseback riding....you get the idea!
