I have lived in Hawaii since 2005. I love Kona because of the weather (sunny), beaches (sandy), and the amenities (music, movies, shopping).
Robin Stark purchased this house in 2005
After visiting the other islands, we fell in love with the Big Island. The core of Hawaiian life and culture can still be found here. The beach and sun are such a part of Kona! White Sands attracts both locals and tourists because of its beauty and the mana of the ocean, earth, and sky that combine in this magical place!
We find the serene and peaceful quality of this neighborhood the perfect complement to the vibrancy of Alii Drive which is just a block away. We appreciate the lack of traffic, noise, and activity when seeking a respite from the day's activities.
We had a wonderful time! The house was so well equipped and beautiful. Thank you! - The Crowstons, Syracuse, NY
The house is two units--a main floor upper house with the 2nd unit at lower grade, pool level. It was the perfect set up for us as we were multi-family. The location was alooking great. The house was close to several attractions and close main roads for everything else. The kitchen was stocked with all the equipment we could need. We had lots of towels and toys for the beach and pool and we definitely took advantage of the laundry. We stayed for a full week and enjoyed breakfasts on the lanai and grilling on the deck.
Super easy to book and was really perfect for our party!
We had a great time at Tradewinds! We were in Kona for my brother's wedding (which was a short drive away at the Sheraton) and were traveling with a large group. We had 2 families staying at Tradewinds, which worked out great with the 2 separate living quarters. Each family had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and their own kitchen. The kids were able to play in the pool together all day and then we all had plenty of room to spread out and get a good night's sleep every night. I called the housekeeper with a couple of questions and she was extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this property!
Just got back from a wonderful vacation in Kona. We had 13 people, three generations, 18mo to 65 and the house worked well for all of us. It was a hot week and we all loved afternoons in the beautiful pool. Loved that there were many beach towels and beach toys for our use. The 18mo and 2 year old enjoyed the large areas in the house to run and play. The house now comes with a pack-n-play. The location is perfect, close to beaches, shopping and many restaurants. It made a great central location as we explored the big island. Thank you John and Robin
The best part of Tradewinds is the incredible pool. We had very hot weather during our stay and the pool was a respite for all ages (18 months to 65 years). Ample pool toys/floats/fins were provided (if you don't have your own in tow).
The two levels allowed for privacy when needed.
The location, within walking distance of two beautiful ocean beaches, is great.
Also, Kona Country Club is within 5-8 minutes driving time. It is beautiful with 6 ocean front holes. Very playable with generous fairways and excellent customer service. If you're a golfer I recommend you check it out.
The only improvement I would recommend is a lower temperature for the upstairs refrigerator. I don't know if we couldn't adjust it properly or if it needs repair.
We were allowed to arrive early and stay late at the property due to different group's arrival and departure times; this flexibility was greatly appreciated.
We had a terrific time.
Loved this house, I rented it for myself an two of my kids with there families and we all loved it there, 14 of us in total for 8 days, the place is beautiful we immediately felt at home, location is perfect, yet still has some privacy, open an roomy w/ a porch that circle's the hole house 2 full kitchens on each floor most important excellent washer w/2 dryers definitely going to be renting it again. Thanks Tradewind
We were delighted to experience this beautiful, extensive home - two large floors with two kitchens, ensuite bathrooms for almost every room, multiple sitting rooms, dining rooms and two large lanais - in addition to a large pool, a hot tub, barbecue and washer and dryer made this ideal for indoor/outdoor living, privacy between family members or friends and space to spread out and enjoy! The location is perfect -- steps from beach, town, and highway to access all parts of the Big Island. The owner was on top of everything to ensure we had a great experience!
From Guestbook: ... Our week at Tradewinds was fantastic and filled with memories that will last a lifetime. ... Swam with the sea turtles at the beach 2 blocks away, hiked Volcanic National Park at sunset, Kayaked off Cook Inlet and snorkeled with the dolphins and other wondrous creatures. Great margaritas at Lou Lous, terrific food at Jamison's and Huggo's. Great band plays Huggo's Wed - Sat. Pahui'a at the Four Seasons was amazing.
