About The Owner

We've traveled around the world quite a lot and find that Hawaii is a natural mid-point between the USA and Asia (another frequent destination of ours).

Lako House has groups coming from North America, Europe and Asia.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2000

Why The Owner chose Kailua-Kona

The Big Island has it all ! It has the most diversity of the Hawaiian island climates, the most diversity of people and food (!) and, the most amazing range of possible activities !!

Of all the Hawaiian islands (Big Island included), Kona has the best weather, least rainfall, and also offers a quieter, less populated and more relaxed atmosphere.

What makes this estate unique

Lako House is a very spacious place even for very large groups just staying or hosting events, parties and wedding receptions, etc. In addition, Kona has very little rain and Lako House's location (300ft elevation) much less heat & humidity (and traffic!) than right at the beach (but we're still just 5 minutes away).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing Sunset and Quiet Village. IT'S LAKO HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Hawaii for the our wedding ceremony at Mokuaikaua church, the oldest in Hawaii.

It was the second time that we came to Hawaii Island.

Since my best friends came to this trip to Hawaii this time,

I found LAKO HOUSE, where all of us can stay.

LAKO HOUSE, which we stayed for a total of 9 people,

is very large and quiet village.

And there was a very big pool and a hot water jacuzzi.

We entered the pool every morning and entered the jacuzzi every evening and enjoyed there with everyone.

The best thing was to see the ocean from the room.

KONA SUNSET I watched every day is amazing!

For dinner for about a week's stay, we cooked using ISLAND KICHEN.

we ate dinner with Koner beer is memorable.

There are too many memories,

I can not write it, but one word at the end.

What we were able to stay at LAKO HOUSE was the best.

The owner's BILL was very kind and care at any time.

I appreciate it very much.

Lako House is a great place to stay for large families

  • 5 of 5

Located close to Kona town, spacious rooms, lots of amenities, inviting pool & jacuzzi, and staff that responds very quickly. If you do your homework (like we did), and compare houses that cater to large groups, you'll find Lako House is great place to stay for large groups / families.

Owner's Response: Steven / Nikki ... You folks were great !! As you know ... Early on, we were quite concerned / nervous about the event your 'Ohana' was planning. But our concern was unfounded ... Not only did you folks leave the place quite clean upon departure, but the neighbors had absolutely NO issues with your gathering. Thank you again for staying at Lako House and please do come back again someday. Aloha, bill

Perfect Aloha Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 15 (plus a baby) had an incredible stay on the Big Island. The home is set up perfect for groups of families with three bedrooms (with adequate space for a whole family to stay in), a large family living room, beautiful dining room and perfectly stocked kitchen.

We rented the Ohana studio also for our family with the baby and it was great for them to have their own space for the baby, but still be within 'shouting' distance if needed.

The pool and hot tub were the perfect size for our group. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need (coffee maker, rice cooker, coolers, glasses for everybody, pots/pans/utensils...there was nothing missing from the supply). All the bathrooms were not only convenient but needed for the number of people we had.

There is not one negative thing I can think of to say about this property. It is beautiful, large, provides everything you need and has an unbeatable view. We watched the whales breaching out of the water while sipping coffee and planning our days, were surrounded by fire works from all sides on New Years Eve, and enjoyed the breeze coming the screened windows and doors each evening. Beautiful. Wishing I was there now!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Kiri ... WoW ! We are so very happy to hear that you folks loved Lako House. And, that's a common theme when it comes to large groups / families at Lako ... It's a great place to 'chill', cook, dine, play with baby, bath, swim, relax, view, sip, drink, eat, live and enjoy life ! Thank you for sharing your time at Lako House with all of us !! Aloha, bill

Great place for a group

  • 5 of 5

We had five families on this stay and this house was great for us. We had plenty of space. Most of our at-home time was spent out on the patio. Having access to a pool/hot tub is a must -- keeps the kids entertained. The view from the pool area is amazing! Very short drive to town, restaurants, coffee, store, etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marcy for your group's stay at Lako House and kind review. We of course love the opportunity of hosting groups such as yours because it clearly showcases and leverages Lako House's BIG group capabilities and why it's not just a place to 'stay' but also to 'live and relax'. Please do come back again someday. Aloha, bill
