This is your own Kona Paradise, 180 degree Ocean View, 2150 square feet of beautiful living space. Located in Kona Paradise, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city and a perfect location for exploring the entire island. Three bedrooms, each with a queen bed, two full master suites with full en suite baths. The upstairs lanai is large, great for sunning or watching the sunset the downstairs lanai is covered and great for entertaining or that quiet dinner overlooking the ocean. There is a beautiful garden with fruit trees and flowers for you to enjoy. Pebble Beach is a short walk down but a long walk back, but just a 2 min drive. You will enjoy our beach locker stocked with Boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkeling gear, ice chest. This is not your usual vacation rental this is our home for you to enjoy!

Hale Hanaunau ha a beautiful warm sun drenched hill side location in Kona Paradise overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean and a black lava field. The Black Pebble Beach (or Kona Paradise Beach) is a snorkel or divers delight (our party of 6 adults did both) and just a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive from Hale Hanaunau.
Hale Hanaunau is a 5 star home delight. Two Lanai's offer ocean views and a third private Lanai had its own banana tree with fruit on it for picking. The gecko's are enchanting. The hardwood floors and staircase are extraordinarily beautiful, and insisted we honor the Hawaiian custom of removing our shoes at the door. The amenities were excellent as adverstised, great kitchen, barbeque/grill and family room. Wonderful bedrooms with baths and comfortable TV living room.
Oh I would be remiss if I didn't mention the lovely landscaping with beautiful plants and shrubs.
This house was perfect for my family. It was spotless when we arrived. It had everything we needed. The house was beautiful. We didn't want to leave. The only thing we didn't like about this house was the driveway. I HIGHLY recommend to rent a jeep or SUV if you rent this house. The driveway is very steep and you will scrape the muffler of the car. I would highly recommend this house to all my family and friends. We will definitely be back to this house in the future.
We’ve been renting houses all over the US when we vacation for the past 10 years, and this house was the most impressive house we've ever stayed at. We love this house! My husband, brother and sister-in-law all agree that it was spotless, had a fantastic view, was beautifully decorated and full of ‘extras’ like the welcome package of soap/lotion, the snorkeling fins and masks in the garage, the DVD library, the very nice linens, the giant shower and huge bath tub and ample pots, pans and dishes. Everything looked new and spotless. No detail was overlooked. The neighborhood was quiet and the beach/cove below the track was great. It was a great location for visiting Kona and great nearby snorkeling spots. The drive to the house is a little steep/intimidating, but once you get used to it, it's no big deal, even with a 4 cylinder car. I can’t wait to come back and stay again next fall!
We spent the weekend here and were so pleased with the home. We have two young daughters and it was perfect for kids - there were even some Disney movies and toys left over from previous renters. The home was very clean and very nicely decorated as well. Although it was about 30 minutes south of Kona, we loved the location. It was close to Ho'okena beach (a beautiful black sand beach) and staying there made visiting the south point sights much more doable. Both the owner and property caretaker were friendly and quick to respond. We live on the island on the east side and will definitely be coming back to this spot. Mahalo!
This was a beautiful home that my family enjoyed immensely. We had five wonderful nights at this home and it's exactly as described in the listing. It was beautifully maintained and had everything we needed for heading to the beach and snorkeling. The kitchen was great for making breakfasts or dinners and had everything you needed. There is a wonderful fruitstand on the main road to Kona and Patz Pies had amazing pizza. Also Donkey Balls had really yummy treats! Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
The minute we walked into this home, our whole family was extremely impressed (and we have stayed at many VRBO's). This was by far our best. The pictures do not do the home justice. The master bedroom is huge with a private lanai and a walk-in shower. The kitchen is beautiful with granite counter tops and new appliances. The whole home is roomy and very comfortable. The location was perfect for us to explore the entire island (we could travel the northern route to Hilo and the southern route to Volcanoes National Park). Tina (the owner) was very, VERY, helpful and gave us a lot of great tips and was always prompt in returning our e-mails (Thank you Tina and sorry if I was a pest). There are some great beaches close to the home and all of the beach equipment in the garage (boogie boards, cooler, snorkeling equipment, beach towels and chairs) were all an added bonus. It was great to just load up the van and head to the beach. One regret is that we did not buy an underwater camera (the snorkeling was beautiful). I would highly recommend Kona paradise to anyone who is touring the Big Island. You will not be able to find a place this nice for the price.
My review will echo what others have said: this is a great home for a week's vacation on the Big Island, especially if you are a family. You have all the comforts of home, and then some, and easy access to beautiful beaches and wonderful activities around the island. We went to a different beach every day, and went on day-trips to Hilo, Volanoes National Park, and the Kona area. Don't miss Punalu'u, Hookena, and Honaunau. We were a couple, our 30-something son and daughter in law and their two little boys, ages 5 and 3.
The house has a fully equipped kitchen, including a spices. Also, people tend to leave things like cooking oil, salad dressing, jam and mayo for the next occupants, so check before you buy items like that. We had to go to the Safeway in Kona for groceries, as the nearby grocery has closed. Hopefully it will be under new management soon. Safeway is a 40 minute drive so we stocked up. You can eat in the dining area off the kitchen, or out on the lower lanai and watch the sun set. You can have a glass of wine on the upper lanai by the light of the moon over the ocean after the kids are in bed.
Buy some Kona coffee beans to grind and brew for breakfast. Or head over to The Coffee Shack in Captain Cook for a great cup of coffee, breakfast or lunch, and a great open-air view of the ocean. There is a Farmer's Market in Captain Cook on Fridays and Sundays.
The two upstairs bedrooms each have their own full bath, and there is a laundry room upstairs too. Downstairs there is one more bedroom with a half bath near it. The living room has a sleeper sofa. Each bedroom upstairs has a large walk in closet and a TV and clock radio. There are plenty of towels and also a set of nice beach towels (six) to take along to the various beaches in the area.
They have an internet-based phone for free long distance within the U.S. and Canada, making it easy to keep in touch with people back at home. The main TV has a DVD player and an HDMI input: bring a cable and you can plug in your camera and show pictures you took that day on the big screen.
