STUNNING OCEANFRONT COTTAGE

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 connections for Android and Apple products (including iPhone 5), iTouch pre-loaded with Hawaiian music, wireless internet, full size washer/dryer, brand new cal king bedroom set, luxurious linens, 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!

Located overlooking Kahaluu Beach, you are within feet of the best snorkeling on the island and will enjoy watching excellent surf action from your expansive lanai and deck. (If you do surf or stand up paddleboard, you can paddle straight out from the property and be in the break in less than 5 minutes.) During winter months, whales can be seen daily as they swim by.

Uniquely situated on a 9000 sq ft oceanfront lot, this property is a one-of-a-kind. You will experience complete privacy with expansive views up and down the coast. 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.

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 spot in between.

Ronald P. Herrema purchased this house in 2013

We have been blessed to have traveled to many parts of the world and have not found a 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 in our travels.

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.

Incredible Property and Location

My wife and I really enjoyed our weeklong stay at Kona Moana Hale. The beautiful location on the northern portion of Kahaluu Bay can't be beat. The house is immaculate and very well maintained. The biggest "difficulty" of our stay was trying to pry ourselves from the large oceanfront lanai. Any closer to the water and you would be in it.

Review of Kona Moana Hale

  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Our time at Kona Moana Hale came at a perfect time. This was our last stop on a 2 month trip away from home as we toured New Zealand and several Hawaiian islands. We stayed at nearly 30 different accommodations during our trip and this home was by far the most peaceful, charming and comfortable. The attention to detail, cleanliness of the property and personal touches made our time here very special and memorable. Watching dolphins and whales on the lanai as we enjoyed our morning coffee or a glass of wine was a particular highlight. The property was immaculate and the listing photos/description accurately reflected all of the features and amenities. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return someday

I thought the setting and accommodation was superb! The listing photos were accurate, the property was newly renovated and immaculate. The owner, Ron, provided ample suggestions and advice regarding activities, restaurants etc. I would highly recommend this property to any couple! A vehicle is a must.

Perfection!

We loved every minute of the ten days we stayed at Kona Moana Hale! We were greeted with soft music, fresh flowers, fruits and banana bread....the furnishings and finishes were top-notch...the views sublime. The cottage is in a great location for exploring the island, but our best days were spent just chillin' on the lanai!

Highly recommend!

Exceeding the Highest Expectations!!

Having allowed two weeks to pass before writing this recommendation, we remain as enthusiastic about this property now as we were when we arrived for our 10 day stay. Kona Moana Hale was the cornerstone of our vacation. After a long day of travel, our late evening arrival into this beautiful, softly lit cottage with quiet music in the background was one of the most welcoming moments we have experienced in years of travel. That attention to detail by the owner/host demonstrated his obvious pride in and love of the cottage and was reflected throughout our stay in the quality of the design, decor and amenities available. From fresh flowers and candles to a well equipped kitchen and activities closet, the pleasure and needs of his guests were well anticipated! For us, the very large and private lanai was heavenly. Beginning each day watching the surfers paddle out at first light and ending each watching the sun set into the ocean was pure joy. And between those two bookends on the day, the location of Kona Moana Hale was perfect for accessing the entire west side of the island and its numerous hiking trails, beaches, golf courses, and other activities, not to mention the snorkeling right in front of the property and paddle boarding/surfing a quarter mile walk away. Many fine restaurants were nearby, but we chose the local farmers’ markets with fresh fish grilled on the lanai and a guaranteed sea side table for our dinners! The pictures on the web site and the accolades of other guests are an accurate reflection of this most unique property (recently featured in the Manchester Guardian Travel Section). Ron (the owner) is a great ambassador for and Kona Moana Hale is a great reflection of all that should be a Hawaiian vacation....Thank you, Ron!
