Overview

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom/2 Bathroom - 1400 sq ft of oceanfront living space

This beautifully restored oceanfront home has all the charm of yesteryear with the added conveniences and sustainability of today. Offered as a vacation rental for the first time in 2013, the view and location are spectacular. In 2014, The Guardian newspaper listed it as one of the Top Beach Houses in the World. Completely renovated, this updated home has hardwood floors, granite countertops, koa cabinets, stainless steel appliances, iHome docking stations, Bose outdoor speakers with Bluetooth receiver (to pair your own devices and play music) with connections for Android and Apple products (including iPhone 5 & 6), iTouch pre-loaded with various Hawaiian music, wireless internet, full size washer/dryer, brand new California king bedroom set, luxurious bedding, hdtv plasma in great room and bedroom, gas bbq, Tiki Hut for afternoon drinks, teak lounges, etc etc. All lights are on dimmers so you can create your own environment and mood. There's even an indoor switch to light up the water at night to create your own private manta ray and eel show!

Ideally located overlooking Kahaluu Beach, you are within feet of the best snorkeling and surfing on the island. (If you do surf or stand up paddleboard, you can paddle straight out and be in the break in less than 5 minutes.) Dolphin sightings are quite common. During winter months, whales can be seen daily as they swim by.

Uniquely situated on a 9000 sq ft oceanfront lot, this home is a one-of-a-kind. You will experience complete privacy with expansive views up and down the coast. (We also own the property next door where you are free to pick papayas, bananas, etc. or just sit and watch the sunset.) While there is so much to do on the Big Island, you will have a difficult time pulling yourself away from your home and the incredible views and sounds of the ocean. You will find this special place to be relaxing, rejuvenating and inspiring.

Upon arrival you will be provided with tropical flower arrangements, kona coffee, fresh fruit, homemade banana bread, etc. For bookings exceeding 14 days, a 'freshen up' cleaning will be arranged midway through your stay at no additional charge.

About Ronald P. Herrema

Married nearly 20 years, we share the passion for travel and exploration. We own a business in California and Australia, so Hawaii is a natural fit as a stopping off location in between.

Ronald P. Herrema purchased this house in 2013

Why Ronald P. Herrema chose Kailua Kona

We have been blessed to have traveled to many parts of the world and have not found a property or location as special as this one. Extensive renovation has been done to make this home both luxurious and sustainable. Expansive panoramic views and the gentle sounds of the ocean create a very unique setting unmatched by anything we have seen.

What makes this house unique

You will not find a home as close to the water as this one! The sights and sounds of the ocean are mesmerizing. From the large lanai and deck you can watch surfers, paddle boarders and boogie boarders or jump in the water and experience some of the best snorkeling on the globe. Lighting up the water at night makes for a spectacular view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just left Kona Moana Hale yesterday. We had a great time in this beautiful and tastefully decorated home. We will surely miss the amazing sunsets, the sound of the waves and the cool ocean breeze. The home had everything we needed and more!



The fruits and goodies basket was a welcome treat. Everything you'll need for the beach (except sun screen!) has been provided - towels, chairs, snorkel sets and icebox.



It was also in the perfect location for everything we wanted to do - exploring the white, black and green sand beaches, snorkeling with the manta rays, visiting the volcanoes and eating out (but we enjoyed breakfast and dinner at the deck the most!). Even if the home was along a busy road, you can't hear any traffic noise because of the sounds of the crashing waves!



We also had a very pleasant experience dealing with Ron, the owner, when we were booking their home. He was very responsive over email, providing suggestions about the island and even calling us when we checked-in, to make sure we had everything we needed.



The Big Island is now our favorite of the Hawaiian islands and Kona Moana Hale was one of the reasons for that!

Greatest vacation ever.....

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was absolutely fantastic. Even better than the pictures. As soon as I walked in I felt at home. Immediately felt the incomparable relaxation that goes with an ocean front home. The home was completely ready right down to the "nth" detail. There was some bad weather on the way and Ron saw to it that just in case there were plenty of provisions and the place was ready. Beyond that, there is NO better place along that shore to see a spectacular sunset than that lanai. Enjoyed that every single evening. A couple of days that I was there I just stayed right there and enjoyed the environment. Spectacular choice, and I am very thankful that I found this place and had the opportunity to stay there.

We didn't want to leave! Greeted by fresh fruit, banana bread, flowers and Kona coffee set the tone for a wonderful 60th birthday vacation. Grilling on a great BBQ with the sun setting, while listening to Ron's Hawaiian music on the outdoor speakers, was a nightly highlight. We love snorkeling and being able to access the water with a very short walk to the beach was perfect and was the best snorkeling we had on the island. We saw several turtles and lots of fish.
Thank you Ron and Pam for providing such a clean, well-appointed home. It was spotless, beautiful and you can't get closer to the water. Our stay at Kona Moana Hale is filled with great memories.

My boyfriend and I just wrapped up our 7 day stay at Kona Moana Hale and it exceeded expectations. We were seeking a comfortable, clean, one bedroom ocean front house (not part of a condo) that provided privacy and the flexibility to explore Kona. We did our diligence and this is the only place you will find that offers the amenities we were looking for and then some. Frankly it was a bit of a splurge for us young professionals, but from all of the comments we read at booking we knew it would be an unforgettable week. I echo all of the other reviewers' positive comments. The one thing I will add is how well located it is not only in terms of the ocean (right off the lenai), but to public beaches, restaurants, grocery, shopping, etc. It seemed like a max 15 min drive from everywhere we wanted to go. Thanks Ron for sharing your home with us and for being so hospitable!

Amazing Experience - even BETTER the second time around!

  • 5 of 5
As a returning renter this little slice of heaven is perfection. After a full day of travel we couldn't wait to arrive back at the beautiful "Kona Moana Hale". We arrived well into the night and were greeted with soft lighting, hawaiian music, a fresh fruit basket, homemade banana bread and several floral arrangements. Combined with the spectacular view, we were once again mesmerized. Throughout our stay we enjoyed several home cooked meals in the fully equipped kitchen. The equipment closet is well thought out and contains snorkeling gear, beach chairs, a cooler, walking sticks, etc. (The walking sticks are great to have while exploring the island and the many hiking trails.) An added highlight was a dancing dolphin show right out in front while we enjoyed our morning coffee. Thank you for arranging that! This incredible oceanfront cottage is still my absolute favorite vacation location. It was nice to hear from Ron the morning after we arrived to see if we had any questions. His is extremely thoughtful in making sure we had the best experience possible. Mission accomplished!

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a blissful week at Kona Moana Hale in celebration of our wedding anniversary.

The home was meticulously clean and the attention to detail is truly impressive. It is such a comfortable space to lounge, read, prepare and enjoy meals, and of course just relax. All with the constant and soothing sound of the ocean.

We snorkeled at the nearby beach, swam with turtles, and enjoyed the surfing/paddleboard display every day.

Ron was a pleasure to deal with, and was extremely accommodating to requests for an early check-in and late check out.

All in all, a fantastic experience!
