Overview

Kailua Kona Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom Ohana with Kitchenette, Pool and Ocean View

Enjoy your lush tropical vacation away from the crowds and traffic in our guest suite. Our 2 acres are located about six miles north of Kona Town at 1100 ft elevation where the sunsets are spectacular, the stargazing is magical and the relaxation is complete.

Your accommodations are in our Ohana (guest suite) which is attached to our home but is self-contained with its own private entrance. Bedroom #1 is a studio with king bed that can convert to two twins, a queen size wall bed, a kitchenette and a sliding door leading out to the lanai and pool. The spa style bathroom connects the studio to the second bedroom which features a king bed. We have a barbecue, loungers and a dining table on the lanai for your use.

High speed Wi-fi internet is included, and the flat screen television is equipped with Roku for on-demand viewing using Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video. We have a large selection of DVD movies as well. We do not have broadcast or cable television channels.

We strive to provide a resort experience for our guests. If your goal is to relax, this is the perfect place for you. If you are celebrating a special occasion, we would be happy to arrange extra in-room amenities.

We have factsheets that provide recommendations for best nearby beaches, day trips, and restaurants. We also can offer advice on best sources for many other tourist and leisure activities on the island, such as helicopter tours, botanical gardens, and ocean adventures.

Lastly, it is never fun having to stop at the grocery store after a long trip. If you contact us a minimum of 1 week in advance of your stay, we can stock your refrigerator with milk, fish, fruit and other basic grocery items; we do not charge extra for this service, you pay only for the actual cost of the items we purchase on your behalf. As our guests, you will have access to our pantry, which stocks sugar, flour, basic canned goods, cooking oil, rice, and other bulk items that you might need.

About Michelle Keyser

Hello we are Michelle and Paul. We moved to Hawaii in 2013 after vacationing on the big island for years. Between the two of us we have lived in or visited much of the world (living most of the time in the Pacific Northwest) - but now we call Kailua Kona home. Michelle is a social worker and Paul is computer consultant.

Michelle Keyser purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Michelle Keyser chose Kailua Kona

We looked for a place away from the busy and touristy center of Kona. We bought 2 acres about six miles outside of town with a great ocean view at a comfortable elevation of 1100 feet. We are now engaged in the exciting process of building ourselves a coffee farm and planting gardens to grow much of our fruit and vegetables.

What makes this apartment unique

Heated Swimming Pool

Access to full size front load washer and dryer

Well appointed kitchenette

Basic pantry items such as flour, sugar and cooking oil.

Beach gear (cooler, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach mats and towels)

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Michelle were the perfect hosts, more like good friends The accommodations were clean, large, bright, airy, exactly what you want when you are away from home. Can't say enough good things about this place or our hosts. Absolutely stunning view from the deck and pool. Paul was a great fount of local info like where to find the dolphins to swim with at Two Step and where the best farmers markets were.

We were 4 seniors staying 4 nights and we all wished we could stay longer.

Felt like you were at home

  • 5 of 5

Awesome! My wife and 3 kids (11, 10 and 7YO) spent 7 wonderful nights here. Michelle and Paul are very gracious hosts. The hospitality was excellent. So much so that they went out of their way to buy our 7 year old son snorkeling gear when they didn't have any in his size. Michelle made my daughter's 10th birthday celebration very memorable by making her a delicious cake. Having the beach gear available for use throughout our stay was a big help and money saver for us. The trip advice was priceless. Listen to Paul and do the star gazing at the Mauna Kea Observatory! More feedback my kids wanted to share - "It felt like you were at home", "The Beds are really comfortable" and "Great Pool". You'd be crazy not to stay here. Mahalo!

A gem of a location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a very short three nights here. What a gorgeous location. HUGE space, comfortable beds and everything one could want/need. All beach stuff that one might want was provided - beach chairs, snorkel gear, coolers, umbrellas, etc. - FABULOUS! Michelle and Paul were outstanding hosts. I would stay here again and have recommended it to friends.

Modern Favorite Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The guest suite was clean, spacious and quiet. The ceiling fans are great to have and with the sliding doors open, there is a lovely ocean breeze. You are located at a higher elevation that provides a nice comfortable environment. We were very close to downtown, markets, shopping, restaurants and so many ocean activities. The owners were so helpful and provide some great local travel tips, including dining recommendations. We had just enough privacy and the assurance that they were close by if we needed any help. The owners provide such personal attention and care to their rental. It's a big plus to have laundry available and the owners even share some basic cooking staples from their pantry. This was my favorite lodging on the island. Next time I will stay here for my entire trip, and take day trips to Hilo instead of splitting my stay between Kona & Hilo.

Wonderful hosts

  • 4 of 5

Our hosts were very friendly and very accommodating when we needed some extra help. The ohana is clean and roomy and the location up the hill keeps you far from the tourist craziness yet close to everything interesting. For star gazers it is a very easy drive to Mauna Kea from here so plan to come when there is not much moon.

Lovely place, Highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

We were only in big island for two days, the owner couple were so nice and helpful. The rooms are very well organized, clean and modern decorated. Everything you needed is there for you from kitchen to bath, entertaining to relaxing. The view from the pool is so beautiful, we wish we planned a longer trip. We will come back in the future and definitely will recommend this place to our friends. Thanks
