Kohala Estates House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

We invite you to escape to this beautiful, very private traditional Ocean Front Hawaiian home, just minutes from downtown Kona and a wide variety of other attractions.

This 2850 square foot home is perfect for family gatherings with a large master bedroom, a queen-bed bedroom, a 'bonus room' with bunk beds, and two and half baths. There is an additional studio-style 'ohana' (apartment) that is attached to the main house that has a queen bed, private bath, kitchen, washer/dryer and private entrance. The home is furnished in a comfortable, casual Hawaiian theme...some of the furniture is hand-made by Hawaiian artists. There are ceiling fans throughout the house. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything necessary to cook and then some, such as a blender, rice cooker, etc.

Open the French doors that stretch across the front of the home to allow in the Trade Winds, a wonderful respite from A/C. During the day, take a trip to the volcano, go whale-watching, visit the restaurants and shops of downtown Kona, or go deep-sea fishing. There are fascinating tide pools in the lava rocks right behind the house that are home to sea turtles, crustaceans, and an abundance of small fish. This house is a short walk from the sandy beaches of Magic Sands, or a half mile drive to the protected lagoon known for snorkeling. Be prepared to see gorgeous fish and gentle sea turtles!

Make sure to be home in the early evening, around 6pm, to relax in the hammock or on the lounge furniture and catch the famous Hawaiian sunset while drinking a Mai Tai! (see recipe below). During the winter months, watch carefully for the migrating humpback whales that swim. and sometimes breach, right in front of the house.

At night, each bedroom is filled with the sounds of waves crashing onto the lava rocks. This property is gated and walled which lets you relax and think of nothing but being part of a tropical paradise.

My family and I stayed spent a week at this gorgeous, ocean-front home. I cannot emphasize OCEAN FRONT enough!!! Every room has an unobstructed view of the Pacific. All of us fell asleep listening to the waves crash on the lava rock just 40 feet away. The house was spotless and the property itself was very well maintained. The house is decorated very nicely and is also very comfortable; it makes you feel like you are at "home".There is a private driveway with a gate for added privacy and a lava rock wall that blocks out "the real world", making you feel like you are part of a magical oasis. The French doors that stretch across the kitchen and living room allow the trade winds to fill the house with a tropical breeze. Also, the house faces to the west which allows BREATHTAKING sunsets. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the yard with our Mai Tais watching the sun set and waiting for the rare "green flash" which is special to Hawaii sunsets. Unfortunately we did not get to see a green flash, but it just makes for a good reason to go back! We were minutes away from downtown Kailua-Kona shopping and restaurants, and some very good restaurants are within walking distance. There is also a sand beach that is easily walkable (Magic Sands).
My husband and I and our 4 children, along with my in-laws, were thrilled to find that the house has an attached "Ohana" (attached mother-in-law suite) that my in-laws stayed in, giving everyone tons of room and privacy. We vacationed in June 2011 and cannot wait to return!!!!

A unique home in Kona; Smack-dab on the Pacific!

We have stayed many times at this house. It is hard to it leave to tour the rest of the island, because sitting on the lanai/patio right in front of the Pacific is so wonderful. We have seen turtles, dolphins and whales, at close range, along with a daily parade of fishing boats, swimmers, kayakers and yolo boarders.
This is a true Hawaiian home that has been updated with new fixtures and appliances. The bathrooms have been re-done with new tile. The rooms are spacious and the furniture and beds are all comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped. Everything is clean and tidy.
This house is conveniently located between downtown Kona and Keahou, so many restaurants and attractions are close by. The home is quiet and private, surrounded by a lava rock wall and tropical plantings. When we visit the resorts, or when I look at other condos and homes available for lease, I feel very fortunate to experience this beautiful and comfortable home on the ocean. After almost a dozen trips to the Big Island, I have seen no place else I would rather stay.
