About Ralph

Hi. My name is Ralph. I'm the owner/builder/manager/gardener/decorator & cleaner of this home. By now, over 2,000 people... all sharing a common love for this Big Island, have enjoyed their Stayinkona under this roof . What a privilege to have made friends with so many of you. From Ironmen to an 'Ultrawoman', Ausie paddlers, 'Guamish' divers, Apple Event staggers, extended families, numerous regulars, wedding couples, and so much more. One of the treats of traveling is meeting new people. For me there's been a happy reverse to this in meeting you, the honored travelers & guests to this beautiful place.

A long story tells how this place came to be. Not many know it but I live thankful for the story ... and thankful to you who decide to make your stay with us.

Why Ralph chose Kona Coast

In a word - 'perfect location'. So quiet and comfortable. Awesome view of town and close to town without the noise and heat. Just the right spot to all points north, south, east, or west. Like a recent guest said, 'perfect for kids - without the resort pull on them ... made getting out and about to see the rest of the Island easy'.

'Couldn't have been better'.

What makes this house unique

While this home gives everyone their space (and does so afford-ably), it tends to a sharing of the whole space. Be it extended family or other group, it is the increase in numbers that results in such a good time. Stayinkona is a 'THE MORE THE MERRIER' (and affordable) PLACE. Let us know ahead of time and we'll set up a tent for even larger groups :-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us share in the beauty of your home, it was truly awesome.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I often host groups in Kona and am almost hesitant to write this for fear of it being booked solid

when I need to rent it again.

We were a group of 8, had everything we needed and then some. Quiet, comfortable, spacious.

and elegant. Everything was clean and modern. Ping Pong table was a big hit.

Aloha!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Ralph's house. The island was spectacular and the location of the house was perfect. Proximity to downtown Kona is great, beaches, everything on the west side of the island. Ralph was very kind and helpful in knowing what to check out. We spent most of our time checking out different beaches because that's what we like. House was very well equipped with beach gear (towels, sand toys, cooler) and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes and appliances. Plenty of sleeping space. The yard is lovely--really we loved every minute of our time there. I've rented numerous properties off of vrbo and this was by far the best equipped house. We will definitely stay again if we ever get the chance to return to the Big Island.

Clean, beautiful, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This home has beautiful grounds and is perfect for small or large parties. It is located close to shops, the beach, and tourist attractions. The view in front of home is awesome and the backyard is spacious great for a wedding or kids playing around. Ralph is a very nice and accomadating owner. He has done a great job with the property and his puppy named Bear, is fun to watch and say hello to on some mornings. It was a great stay.

Excellent property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We brought a group of 8 Veterans for a therapy get away and helped them to get off the couch and find a new mission again. This home was so perfect and the owners were so very helpful with directions, places to eat and so on. The even brought us into their own home one evening to show us some videos they shot of the volcano as we were interested in going and seeing that! We would defiantly stay here again if we make it back!!! Awesome place and AWESOME PEOPLE!!!

Map

Car: recommended

Kaiilua Kona is a quaint Hawaiian town on the sunny side of The Big Island. Visitors and locals enjoy perfect weather, water, and beaches. Relax or body surf on green, white, and black sand beaches. Star gaze or play in the snow on 14,000 foot Mauna Kea. Kayak to Captain Cook Monument for incredible snorkeling. Experience turtles, exotic fish, dolphins, and whale watching (Dec-Feb).

There's Manta ray dives, scuba lessons/diving in crystal clear blue water, and

surfing lessons with helpful /experienced instructors at easy beginner locations. Charter a boat to go deep sea fishing for Ono, Ahi, Marlin and more. Visit Island wonders such as Waipio & Pololu Valley, Green Sands beach, Volcano National Park, Akaka Falls, and botanical gardens. Take a day trip to Hilo. Back in Kona ... shop and dine along Alii Drive. Bet you'll want to stay for another week.
