Kohala Coast Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Vacation Ready Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

All you'll need is a bathing suit and a Toothbrush as I've thought of everything. Beach Towels, Beach Chairs, Coolers with Ice Packs, Umbrellas, Boogie Boards, Snorkel Gear, Sand Toys, Fishing poles and Tackle, Tennis Racquets and fresh tennis balls, Football, Basketball, Frisbee, 2 Binoculars, Wireless Speakers, Books, Movies, Hand Held Steamer for that wrinkled Sun Dress, Laundry Soap, Weber Grill, First Aid Kits, Baby Accessories including high Chair and pack-n-play. Our Home is Vacation Ready!

You'll talk to the Whales from our Private Lanai tucked away in the corner of Hali'i Kai right on the waters edge. Only a hand full of homes here offer true Waterfront seats so be careful or you could wind up sipping breakfast coffee while staring at a wall, the main access road or even dodging golf balls. Nothing here but crashing waves, Chirping birds and Breaching whales. Take a moment and read the many reviews.

Your vacation neighbors are Charles Schwab, Tom Lehman, Paul Allen (Microsoft) - His Yacht is usually cruising the Kona coast. Also Pricilla Presley, Jeff Kissinger (Me), Bob Parsons (Go Daddy), and Neil Young come here to escape the mainland in their vacation island homes here on the Big Island. Those private Jets on the end of the Tarmac belong to the many Celebs in hiding. Just Don't tell TMZ who your neighbors are !

The kitchen is complete for Thanksgiving dinner and if you must do the Laundry (illegal in some families while vacationing) the Tide is plentiful !! The King Bed, Lanai Table, Towels, Sheets and bed spreads are all Luxurious and new in 2016! We've just added large Beautiful Samsung Washer and Dryers in April 2016

This Oasis know as Hali'i Kai is located on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii's Big Island just 18 miles from the Keahole Kona International Airport. Birthplace of the great King Kamehameha I, tales of the favored status of this stretch of the island are legend. Blessed with a scant ten inches of rainfall annually, most days here are sun drenched and cooled by the breezes of Anaehoomalu Bay.

Experience the private amenities that Hali'i Kai has to offer. Whether it is relaxing on an aqua lounger in the pool, a golf game with friends on a Robert Trent Jones-designed course, or a romantic evening at an award-winning Ocean Grill restaurant, the amenities at Hali'i Kai will fulfill your needs and desires.

Our villa welcomes you with the serenity of a luxury retreat. An open kitchen features black-on-stainless steel appliances. The great room relaxes you with gentle earth tones. The generous private lanai is yours for alfresco dining, 365 sunsets a year !

Total square footage is 1204 square feet.

About Jeff Kissinger

I am King Jeff Kalamabellytoobig and this is my rags to riches to rags story....

Jeff Kissinger purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Jeff Kissinger chose Kohala Coast

I drank the Kool-aid and bought at the peak now I'm hoping you will rent it and help me pay the mortgage ! The good news is I have a partner. The bad news for him is he has a wife that doesnt remember approving of this transaction.

What makes this townhome unique

I don't feel so stupid when I'm there. It is paradise and I hope to retire here. When I'm 93 this place will be paid for. I check our (scratch that) your home often to make sure the home is up to my stringent specifications. On my recent visit I replaced the Grill, bought new beach chairs & beach towels, books, Movies, Boogie boards, and rugs. I purchased Binoculars, a High Chair, and a Pack in Play for your families many needs.

As is usually the case I did not want to leave when I'm here! If you can find the Patron or promise to write a nice review it's yours !

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Jeff,

Pictures cannot prepare one for the reaction we got when we opened the

front door. Your place has got to be the nicest place on the whole island

-- just amazing! We already have memories of a lifetime just sitting on the

lanai staring at the ocean, spending time with each other and drinking

coffee (and beer). I meant to drop you a quick note earlier, but we've

been so busy having the time of our lives.

Having been to Kauai so many times, I wasn't sure what to make of all the

lava on the way up! But we went to Hapuna, visited Kailua Kona and Hilo,

and are really loving this island.

Whenever we come back "home" to 15B, it never fails to amaze me to walk

through those doors and see that view. My expectations were high to begin

with, but it's no exaggeration to say we're blown away. Mahalo, Mahalo!

Incredible Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us! It was one of the most comfortable vacation homes we've ever stayed (and we have trawled the world). The beds might be more comfortable than what we have at home. You provided everything we could have imagined and more - we used the beach chairs, beach towels and coolers for our outings. The view of the ocean is amazing and all the staff are incredibly friendly. We would definitely recommend your home to anyone - really loved our stay and already miss our home away from home! Many thanks from Texas!!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

From the start Jeff was great, he got back to me right away. The house was wonderful, loved the master bedroom that looked out to the ocean - it was a great way to wake up in the morning. It was well stocked with toys - boogie boards, ice chest, tennis rackets, we didn't use them but it was nice to know we had the option! Little touches were nice - chocolate, Kuerig coffee pods for us to use. The pool, bar and restaurant were great - Kathy and Donna were so sweet and helpful. Our experience was fantastic and we can't wait to visit again! Mahalo

Amazing property, fantastic location, gracious dos

  • 5 of 5

You cannot find a more gracious and inviting host on VRBO and the fact that this property is truly amazing makes it even better! The location of the unit within the complex is perfect- being right on the lava "beach" makes all of the difference. We watched the sun set every night we were there and caught sight of dolphins in the morning. The unit is well appointed with everything you could possibly need in Hawai'i, and if you do want to run to the store, there are several very close by. The property is a perfect starting point for anywhere you want to visit on the island, which is a bonus if you want to hit all of the highlights. If you want to just chill for the day at "home," you can kick back at the pool or go to some of the best beaches on the island less than 20 minutes away!

The beds are comfortable, there are lots of sheets-pillows-towels, everything is very clean, the amenities are plentiful within the unit and on the property (pool, bar, grill, fitness facility, tennis, basketball) and it's so quiet! Don't walk, run to book this rental! You will be very happy that you did!

Mahalo Jeff!

Hawaii Relaxed

  • 5 of 5

Hali'i Kai is a quiet and relaxed resort. The condo is set up like a family guest house not a rental property. It has everything you need for a great vacation, really everything. All you will need to bring is your clothes and a relaxed attitude. I loved the new washer and dryer.

The Best things about the condo: Location, Sunsets, Quiet nights, Dolphins swimming by in the early morning, Cooking out on the lanai, Amenities, ABay is a few minutes away--6am morning walks to see the sleeping turtles--walk left on the beach, And the owner Jeff. Jeff has made a great effort to make you feel at home. We really felt welcomed.

Mahalo Jeff for spreading the Aloha.

Beautiful views, relaxing and trip of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the place so much. It seriously couldn't be any closer to the ocean, there's great tide pooling literally right in front in the lava rock. The pool and hot tub on the property is beautiful and clean, and the bar with the fruity drinks is definitely a fantastic plus! The condo itself was spectacular and well kept up, and literally had everything you could possibly think of and more! Thank you for the wonderful stay!! We wanna come back already!!

Great place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the last few nights of a week and a half on the Big Island. New, clean condo with a great open layout. Well stocked closet with boogie boards, coolers, snorkel gear, etc. that come in handy for a trip to one of the nearby beaches (Hapuna beach is a favorite a few miles up the road). The condo is very close to the pool and clubhouse. We spent most of our last day there enjoying the relaxing salt water pool and frozen cocktails made by the friendly staff. The owner (Jeff) checks in to make sure your stay is a great one. He's very responsive and even helped us out of a bit of a scheduling glitch. You can watch the sunset from the porch - you can even see Maui. A great end to a great trip.
