Overview

Holualoa House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

Wow! VERY reasonably priced and in a GREAT location! THE CALENDAR IS UP TO DATE CHECK FOR AVAILABILITY THERE!

Bright and welcoming. Mountain Breezes and Ocean Views! This place is designed for people who want to hear the birds sing and feel the soft trade winds breathe on their sun-kissed skin. For those who want to smell the sweetness of the plumeria's and delight in the exotic palms almost an arms reach from your lanai.

From serene sunsets to exciting live volcanic eruptions, the Big Island has it all and Kona Seaviews is ideally situated for all of your fun Kona adventures. Just 300 feet in elevation up from the best snorkel beach in Kona (Kahaluu) where sea turtles are often seen sunning themselves on the shore and 20 minutes to the most pristine golf course you can imagine, where the wild Peacocks and Nene birds are free to roam.

Kona Seaviews is the best part of a newer Hawaiian home (built in 2003) situated in one of Kona's most authentic Hawaiian neighborhoods. Your ohana has it's own entrance and the only thing you share is the laundry room, with Dianne and I and only when we are able to leave the mainland and enjoy our piece of paradise.

Pick from the lime tree or a plumeria, and enjoy the GREAT weather; beautiful flowers; singing birds and all the peaceful views of the Pacific from the lanai.

This is a home you will want to return to year after year. Come and enjoy the lush, rich, peacefullness of Kona Seaviews. You will be glad you did.

Our vacation ohana offers three bedrooms, two baths, a fully equipped kitchen with dining area, an indoor living room with TV, wireless internet service, and laundry facilities. Relax and enjoy the peaceful ocean views while you have your breakfast or coffee on the huge lanai in the morning or with a glass of wine in the evening absorbing the beautiful Kona sunsets. Ceiling fans in each room allow for open windows and for you to awaken to the sound of singing birds.

Bring your swim suit and flip flops and your good to go. We have installed an outdoor shower to help you wash off the sand from your trips to the beach.

About Clyde Sebastian

We are Clyde and Dianne Sebastian, originally from Minnesota but met while we were both teaching school in Australia. We have four adult children and three granddaughters. We have been Texans since 1984. We discovered the Big Island when we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in 1999. We fell in love with Hawaii and eventually purchased our home in 2007. At this time we still spend most of our time on the mainland and thus our fully furnished home is available to you for vacation rental. Dianne has a rewarding career working with students who have dyslexia and Clyde has recently returned to coaching high school wrestling. This keeps us on the mainland for now.

Clyde Sebastian purchased this house in 2007

Why Clyde Sebastian chose Holualoa

We purchased this home because the lanai across the front of the home gave us a true Hawaiian feeling. Being built in 2003 it is clean and fresh. You enter our home on the second level and as you enter you will already see the ocean through the patio doors out to the lanai. The ceramic tile floors eliminate any worn out carpet. The master has a king bed with a private full bath. The second bedroom also has a king bed which makes for private sleeping for two couples. The third bedroom has a single bed and a desk which provides a place for your laptop. The queen sofa is a hide-abed if needed. You will find you spend most of your time out on the lanai where we have three tables and nine chairs. Our pricing allows you to save money for a longer stay or to do the Manta night dive. You will be pleased with the climate, fresh air, and comfort of our home.

What makes this house unique

Affordability with a great location. Our pricing for a single couple is a great value and our location is perfect for exploring all the Big Island has to offer. We have additional beds for more guests for families and small groups and our pricing for the additional guests is reasonable. Our home gives you a good perspective of what it would be like to actually live in Hawaii. We have a diverse neighborhood from snow birds to local Hawaiians. You may hear the hula classes down the street and drive by our neighbors who have two pet pigs. Watch for children when schools out and keep them safe. This is a neighbor hood where you hear kids play just like it use to be on the mainland. There is one neighbor who has an occasional outburst but if you’re out enjoying the Island you will likely never hear him. It becomes quite here after sunset as you will experience when you come and visit the authentic Hawaii experience here on Sea View Circle. Try it, and you will not be disappointed!

Great Place at a Great Price

  • 5 of 5

This place turned out to be an awesome place for us to stay. We had 4 Adults, 2 children and a baby. Clyde was very thoughtful and set out a baby crib for us. Clyde was very friendly, and we enjoyed a talking with him. I thought the place would be small from the pictures, but was surprised to see that it felt much bigger than I had expected. The lanai is great!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to provide sleeping accommodation for the little one. For future renters. We have a high chair, pack-n-play for a little one to sleep in, and a large stroller for neighborhood walks.

Wonderful rental!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here for nearly a week during our vacation on the Big Island. The home was very comfortable and spacious. The beautiful lanai alone is worth the 5 stars! The house was very well stocked with everything we could need - we especially appreciated the washer & dryer, cooler, and food storage containers. The home was easy to find and located within a short driving distance to shopping and beaches (but without being in the thick of traffic and tourists). We also enjoyed fruit from the papaya tree in the backyard. I would definitely stay here again!

Awesome stay!

  • of 5

Our stay at this rental was absolutely fantastic. We were a group of 6, 4 adults, a toddler and an infant. They had a perfect bedroom for our toddler and a pack-and-play for the baby. The view was perfect. We woke up every morning having our breakfast on the lanai and whale watching. We spent our evenings doing the same thing at dinner time. The sunset was amazing. It was easy to find and close to many markets, stores and shops. It was also close to some really great beaches as well. We would love to go back as it was a great stay!

Owner's Response: We are looking forward to the whale watching ourselves as most of our time on the Island has been in the summers!

Breath-taking View!

  • 5 of 5

We would absolutely stay at this home again!! The location was great as a jumping point to many different destinations on the island. We spent our mornings enjoying our coffee and watching whales from the lanai, daytimes scuba diving, snorkelling and touring along the coast and then enjoyed family dinners back on the lanai watching the sunset. As a family with three adult children along with us, this home provided ample space for all of us to enjoy. We really appreciated the gas BBQ, laundry facilities and all the extras provided such as the cooler, beach mats/chairs, flashlights, boogie board, etc. for our daily adventures. The owner was especially helpful and accommodating to our needs. Mahalo for the use of your home! This was a perfect family vacation!

Live like a Local!

  • 4 of 5

This is a very well kept spacious home in a typical residential neighborhood. Just the lani had more square footage than some hotel rooms we have stayed at. The lani also had a nice view of the sunset over the ocean several blocks away. It was a pleasant spot for dinner and I enjoyed having my morning coffee there and listening to all the birds going through their morning routine. The home is a short drive to Kona and a good base for exploring that area on the Big Island, which is too big to explore from just one location. If you want a house that can easily accommodate five adults in three beds and don't need all the fancy resort amenities, this is a great choice. No extra charge for parking, Wi-Fi and all the other fees the resorts pile on either!

Owner's Response: Favorable response. I would add that our address IS Kailua Kona and is close to Kahaluu Beach one of the friendliest and best snorkel spots on the Island. We are not in the shopping area of Kona and do not have to contend with the late night entertainment but close enough to get there if you want to enjoy a night out. Perhaps the 4 of 5 stars was because we are not a resort but then that is why people stay with us!

Great value!!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent place - much better and bigger than what you see from the pics.

Love the big balcony and BBQ. Kitchen and living space is big and very functional.

It's not the best location in Kona, but if your alternative is not in downtown either it will easily do, and you don't have the fuss of traffic on Alii Dr.

Owner's Response: I see the words "Excellent" and "much better and bigger" than what you see in the pics. That sounds pretty good to me and with those words I would have expected 5 stars. I'm not sure what the location comment is about. We are not on the ocean, but we are at a pleasant elevation in an authentic Hawaiian neighborhood convenient to the treasures of Kona. Our guests did ask to extend their stay so they must have been pleased enough with the value we had to offer. We were able to accommodate their extended stay. If your looking for resort amenities we do not offer that. If you want a newer clean and affordable spacious home to base your Hawaiian adventure from we are that "Excellent place"!

Our newer home, built in 2003, is located at a pleasant elevation yet close to Kailua Kona Bay. A 3.2 mile drive will take you to bay side restaurants and shops. Some of the best snorkel, sand, and surf beaches are just down the mountain to Alii Drive. The Kona coast offers beautiful views, coral snorkeling, dolphins, and whales. Explore coffee and macadamia nut farms. Our affordable prices give you the option to pay for a hotel or bed and breakfast when you make the trip east to see the volcano, hot ponds, and beauty of the Hamakua coast. You will want to explore the Island but it is called the Big Island for a good reason. Base out of our home and spend a night when it's low tide on the other side of the Island. The tide pools of Kapoho and the Hot Ponds are better at low tide. Tina manages things for us on the Island and will make sure everything is ready for you.

Notes:
Our guests love the open air and views from our Lanai. We have had inquiries about the need for air conditioning. No one has air conditioning at our elevation. The temperatures are pleasant and you will sleep comfortably at night. Additionally, every room has a ceiling fan which is helpful during the warmer part of the day. There is no need to enclose yourself inside and run an air conditioner. We need that back in Texas but you will be very comfortable and enjoy the open air while staying at our home in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
