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 Kona Coast

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).

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!

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

Perfect for Our University Student Group Spending a Week on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

Our university group stayed at the Lako house to accommodate our group of 21 while we were studying geography on the Big Island. The location was great -- not too far from the local shopping where we bought groceries, etc. Our students loved the house -- it gave them a chance to bond while the professors stayed in the ohana suite. We are already working on our reservation for next year. Great staff, beautiful home, and a few minutes from the ocean.

Lako House a place to stay with large families!

  • 5 of 5

It took us about a year of planning with a large family, we rented three home and Lako management Bill was able to accommodate us all. Lako Main, Ohana and House Next Door (HND) for the dates. Bill was very at attentive to my needs and our families safety. He was there in every step. Bill helped us make wonderful memories at Kona. I would highly recommend this place for large family!
