About The Owner

Local born and raised in Hawaii. Owner of the First Surf Shop in Kona, called ' Pacific Vibrations Surf Shop'. Opened in 1978 when Kona had no traffic lights!, or any major shopping centers. We are located right in the heart of Kailua Kona Town. We can offer our guest a 10% discount of our Surf wear for Surfing, lots of Bikini's and Sunglasses. We have Surfboards, Boogie boards, swim fins and Standups Surf boards. We also are the official retailer for the amazing GoPro underwater Cameras too! Check it out, we have the best selection in Kona. Also involved with the Ironman Triathlon World Championship since 1983. We are the official Water Patrol, making sure the swimmers are safe. October is super intense, our location becomes a training spot for all the runners getting ready for the biggest event in Kona. Its also steps away from the turn around spot for the run portion of the race.

Why The Owner chose Kahaluu

You will love the location for one. Our price $$$ per night is the least expensive home in our neighborhood. We are surrounded only by private vacation rental homes, and not condo's or apartment. So for the most is quiet and peaceful, you can't help but love the feeling of a Hawaiian Home.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location !!!..its why King Kamehameha I and III decided it was their playground and residence.

Perfect place for my family's kona vacation

Perfect place for my family's kona vacation
  • 5 of 5
This house has many great features. Our favorite parts were the location, the lanai and the kitchen.
There is great snorkeling and surf lessons just a 4 minute walk away, and the white sand beach is under a mile in the other direction which is a great spot for body surfing, body boarding, beach volleyball and swimming. Downtown kona is a short drive away with a fantastic market on Wednesday and Saturdays. The lanai is huge with a full size dining table that comfortably fit all 7 of my family. There are many seats and a bar with a clear view of the ocean. The lanai has both a covered and not covered section so you can either escape the heat or get some sun depending on your mood. We had a great time in the well equipped kitchen with plenty of room for many hands to help out. Another nice feature is that each room has it's own bathroom.Overall we highly recommend this wonderful property.

Great Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful place for our family vacation. We had large group and the house was great as it had a lot of spots for people to hang out. The lanai was our favorite gathering place to watch the sunset every evening as well as a perfect place to enjoy our Thanksgiving dinner. The house had everything we needed and it was nice to have beach gear like boogie boards and towels. The little kid wading pool was a hit with our kids as well (who knew after spending all day at the beach they would want more water time). Simmy was very accommodating and helped us to find the best activities with each of my inquiries. The location was great as we could walk down to the beach where we saw turtles within a minute after getting into the water. The beach there was great for snorkeling, paddle-boarding and surfing. This truly was a great place to stay!

Perfect ocean view!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful stay at both houses - what a beautiful view of the ocean!. The beach is only a short walk away, and the snorkeling there is FANTASTIC! We saw numerous kinds of fish, as well as many sea turtles. What a thrill! We spent most of our time at Melekai, and the house is beautiful. It was very spacious for our family of 7, and it was great to have some toys available for the toddler in the group. He enjoyed splashing in the little pool - just his size! The location is great - close to stores and restaurants. The owner met us there and showed us around. Being a long-time resident, she knows where to go for anything you might want! We consider ourselves lucky to have found this beautiful location - mahalo!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This place is just as described and better. First off, owner Simmy is so personable and helpful with our questions. We are from Oahu and hadn't been in Kona for many years so having the owner living in the area is great. There is a ton of space at this house with easy access to the great covered lanai. Loved lounging there reading or relaxing. Close to a lot of places yet not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of cars and beach goers. I highly recommend this house and will definitely go back again. There are more than enough towels for bath and beach too. I wish we had a longer stay. Thank you Simmy!!

Owner's Response: Ah! Its so NICE to hear a POSITIVE response from my guest! Thank you for taking the time to do this! I know there are so many vacation rentals to choose from in Kona. I realize its a big decision and by well it should be. There are lots of rates that differs, from Condos, and farther away location for a lesser price. . I know when you try to compare, its trying. Once you arrive I know from your reaction, its worth it! ( love the comment from your son upon arriving and setting his backpack on the bed "I'm in Heaven Now!") So, hopefully these wonderful comments from my guest themselves helps convince future guest to stay here..... P.S. Much MAHALO Beth! And it was wonderful to meet your family too! So glad your nice teenagers got to come to my store "Pacific Vibrations Surf Shop" ,I had the opportunity to let them know a little history of us being the first surf shop in Kona since 1978. And, they were impressed with the photos of our team riders who became now so famous, Mike Stewart world class Body Boarder, and Shane Dorian, world class Surfer, who started up with us in the early days of the 1980's.. I hope they enjoyed the beaches right near our Home... Much Aloha and Mahalo! Simmy
