PRIVATE OHANA(GUESTHOUSE): WALK TO MAGIC SANDS OR KAHALUU BEACH

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom with fully equipped kitchen

This private guest house (downstairs unit) is a one bedroom one bath with a private back yard and grill. It is a quick walk to Magic Sands Beach or '4 mile' (a well known scuba diving spot). It is less than a mile from Kahaluu beach, which offers easy access to the undersea population of green sea turtles and colorful tropical fish of every description. You will be amazed.

The home is very comfortable, tropical, spacious, yet cozy. It comes with a fully furnished kitchen, Wi-Fi internet and desk (if you do need to get a bit of work done while you are gone), and an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand and salt from the day. You will have a private covered parking spot and enjoy access to a plethora of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs that are grown here on the property. It is a place to come and quiet your mind, move your body and treat your spirit to a healthy lifestyle. Find a good book and relax after a long day of ocean time or golfing. You will be mesmerized by the singing tropical birds and the lull of the ocean at night.

Use your private Washer/Dryer as needed and check in with us to explore use of Boogie Boards and Snorkel Gear. It is all here for you to enjoy a vacation with ease. We also know many local massage therapists and adventure guides, so don’t hesitate to ask for guidance and referrals, just send an email or text message or call the property managers.

Nearby Keauhou Shopping center (2 miles away), has dining, shops, grocery story, theaters, live entertainment and a spectacular Saturday Farmers Market with local coffees, organic produce etc. Also local restaurants Sam Choy’s and Anthony’s By The Sea might suit your fancy.

Absolutely overwhelming!

This absolutely lovely apartment was by far the nicest place we rented on our honeymoon. Maraya and her husband Michael made us feel welcome and comfortable in such a wonderful way, even though we only stayed for three days it truly felt like home. It is no exaggeration to call this place "magic" - once you're there you know what we mean. And should you ponder the idea of visiting the Big Island of Hawai'i, think of Maraya's and Michael's place as a very good reason to win you over. You're in for a wonderful experience!

It was a perfect stay

We spent last week of August this year at this spacious and clean appartment. It was a perfect stay. The hosts were great. They really spoilt us every day with fresh fruits, eggs, herbs and flowers of their garden. The place has an excellent location with just a few minutes walk or drive to the great snorkeling bay Kahalu'u and a bit away from the touristic crowds of Kona. It is an extremely quiet place, you only hear birds. Having breakfast at the lanai in the middle of the garden was a perfect start every morning. The hosts gave us lots of helpful information about what to do and where to go. They are a gorgeous family with their little sweet son. Should we have the chance again to go to Big Island we will definitely want to stay with them again. We can highly recommend the place.

Perfect Getaway

My family just returned from a special trip over to Kona. We were met with the warm friendly smiles of the property owners and felt welcome as soon as we arrived. The ohana was very clean and comfortable. We had a spacious bedroom and amble room in the living space for the kids to relax and enjoy our meals. The kitchen had everything we needed and the kids loved picking fresh greens from the garden and collecting eggs from the chickens. The location was perfect to stroll to the beach and make our way to Kona town with ease. We will certainly be back to stay for an extended trip next time. We certainly recommend this beautiful and peaceful Ohana to all.

Owner's Response: Aloha Meg and family,
Glad you and your family got to use the grill as well. Good idea to bring the sleeping pads in for the kids rather than using the sofa couch. We'll keep that in mind for future guests.
Look forward to seeing you on your next Kona family trip.
Aloha,
Maraya

Relaxing home away from home

I loved my stay! I was looking for a retreat filled with solitude, beaches and delicious food... and that is exactly what I got! What a relaxing, quiet, private place this was, surrounded by beauty, and just a quick walk away from the beach. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet get-a-way, in a great location, with easy access to everything you could want!

Owner's Response: Thanks Becca. We look forward to your next visit to Big Island and hope you will have a retreat that is just as rejuvenating and eye opening.
Aloha,
Michael, Maraya and Kaimana

Great deal close to the beaches

I really enjoyed my stay here, we walk to the beach almost every night for sunset. This guest house was cozy and felt like home to me. Perfect location to a little bit of everything on the big island and although we feel a car is a must for anything longer then a weekend trip.We will defiantly be staying here again.

Owner's Response: You and your family are always welcome! I do agree that a car is a must while visiting Big Island. Thank you for the sound advice to future tenants.
