My husband and I love the ocean. We are both artists and have taken our home and turned it into an artistic getaway! We enjoy being in Hawaii and the Big Island, as it stills has the feeling of 'olde Hawaii,' and country. You will love the location and the smell of plumerias outside the bedroom windows. The blue warm ocean is perfect for swimming with much of the time sunny. We really love providing a wonderful vacation experience for our guests.

Michele Croci purchased this house in 2007

We bought this home as our retreat from the big city. We wanted a space where we could create and Ron, as a professional artist, could paint. So now Ron has created so many beautiful paintings that decorate this beautiful home. It makes it even more special for us.

You will enjoy the quiet and the privacy of the tropical gardens. The ocean and coastline view is 180 degree and you can see all the way down the coast on clear days!

Great House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 16, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
The first thing we said after leaving this house was "Let's stay here next year, but for 2 weeks instead of 1."

The property is nicely situated south of Captain Cook, close enough to groceries etc, but out of town enough to be quiet and relaxing. The house is 1 mile distance from the black pebble beach, and 1000 feet up slope. This walk was a good cardio start to our day, and the views from the deck in morning and evening were great. The house is nicely appointed and very comfortable. We were able to get to Volcanoe park and up to Kona and an organic coffee plantation for day trips, along with lots of beach and hiking times. A charming place to stay.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your gracious comments! We would LOVE to have you come back next year for more time. We are so happy that you found the home comfortable and that you found the location convenient to alot of sites. The deck around the house is definitely a great feature of the house. We also have enjoyed many breakfasts and dinners on the lanai reflecting on the sunsets and incredible ocean views. It is really beautiful. So glad you found the home charming--what a great compliment. All the best to you and the family---you may want to reserve now for next year....we are already filling dates for spring of next year! Warm regards and mahalo! Michele and Ron

Amazing views, beautiful house!!

  • Submitted: Jul 14, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
My family and I recently enjoyed an amazing 5 day vacation in this beautiful house. The house is spacious and stocked with almost everything that you might need. It is apparent that the owners thought of the samllest details to enusre their guests' comfort. Michele had even provided a list of groceries that we might need when we arrived at the house, along with information about where to shop, where to eat and local attractions. Our favorite spot in the house was, of course, the lanai. We enjoyed some beautiful sunrise and sunsets there. The location is very convenient - not too far from any of the main attractions such as Kailua Kona, Volcano National Park, all the different beaches. We loved driving through the beautiful countryside and exploring some of the coffee plantations, restaurants, fruit stands, curio shops along the way. Thank you for one of the best vacations we have had in a long time!
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely comments! We are so very happy that you and your family had a pleasant time in our home and Kona. The views from our lanai are breathtaking; we have often enjoyed just sitting on the lanai---looking at the ocean and dreaming of faraway lands. We sometimes forget, that we sitting on an island 2500 miles from other mainlands!
I am so glad that you enjoyed all the amenities and the kitchen as well. If there is anything I may add to the home, to make it more complete, homey and pleasant for our guests, please let me know.
Please come back soon and share with your friends, we would love to provide you with a referral gift when your friends (or family) reserve with us at Kona Leilani! Blessings to you and your family and let's stay in touch, Michele and Ron.

Kona Paradise Home

WOW. Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home! Michelle and Ron were very responsive and accomodating - and the house itself was very cool in many ways - full of lush botanical gardens, great artwork (!) and tasteful decor. Kayaking from the community beach was nothing special, although there were several wonderful day trips we took from this centrally located home. If you are looking to experience the real Hawaii and embark on some great adventures, we would definitely recommend staying here. Very relaxing and private, and with the downstairs apartment, our teenagers had some of their own space, which they enjoyed!

Perfect group setup with magical garden

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 17, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
Excellent setup for groups in this two-level house. Separate entrances for each floor create the perfect arrangement for inlaws, families with teens, or just friends wanting separate acommodations while still enjoying together time. Owners have thought of everything: beach toys, fluffy towels, two kitchens, on-site laundry room with soap, dryer sheets. There are two huge decks with breathtaking views and patio furniture, dining tables/chairs, a total of three bathrooms, three bedrooms, PLUS an outdoor shower. The spectacular garden is a hidden gem (you won't find anything on the island like it for twice the price). Helpful hint for the steep, circukar driveway: BACK IN instead of driving in front-first. You'll have a much easier time of getting out. Unfortunately, we only thought of it our last day. If you want something a bit off the beaten path, very quiet, fabulously equipped, with easy access to everything, this is it! Bonus: super friendly, helpful and kind owners.

We all enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful view. We have great dinners on the balcony. Quite central to a lot of activities (Volcano, beaches, snorkeling, bicyling). The weather was very good--sometimes hot in the afternoon but by 5 pm, with a drink, it was perfect!
