This place is truly Hawaii at it's best. You will enjoy the lush. luxurious landscape in this peaceful paradise, away from the crowds, yet close to many pristine beaches. This one acre estate is located in one of Kona's most desirable neighborhoods, four miles north of Kona village, at 900 ft elevation where the days are 10 degrees cooler than the coast and the humidity is far more comfortable. You can open your windows all year long and enjoy the breezes. You'll love the spaciousness of the 1 acre lot with no neighbors in sight.
It seems like you're far removed from everything, but everything is close by at your fingertips, just a short drive away when you want anything. Staying here is the best of both worlds!
Your accommodations are in our Ohana (guest suite) which is attached to the main house but is self-contained with its own private entrance, kitchen and parking space. Reasonably priced and in a GREAT location! Just 4 miles from the hustle of town and yet close to beautiful beaches and the local Harbor from where you can take off on many fun water activities like deep sea fishing, snorkeling cruises or manta ray diving.
High speed Wi-fi internet is included, and the flat screen television is equipped with Roku for on-demand viewing using Netflix, and Amazon Instant Video. We also have basic cable. Here are some of the other things that will delight you staying at The Great Kona Escape.
Loads of Tropical birds singing sweetly all around you.
The botanical gardens just out your door.
A temperature that is comfortable all year.
Close proximity to a dozen world class golf courses.
The beauty and wonder of living in a floral paradise.
The ability to pick from the large variety of organic fruit trees
and make your own salads from the organic vegetable garden.
We are located 3 miles up from a quiet sandy cove beach where sea turtles are often seen sunning themselves on the shore and 15 minutes to the most pristine golf course you can imagine, where the wild Peacocks and Nene birds are free to roam.
You couldn’t ask for a better location or a more tranquil environment to go along with this uber comfortable, tropical spacious, yet cozy, ohana. This truly is a piece of paradise.
This is a home you will want to return to year after year. Come and enjoy the lush, rich, peacefulness of The Great Kona Escape. You will be glad you did.
Aloha Pumehana, (warm welcome)
Our names are Sandra and Ken. We are both originally from California, i, Sandra, came to visit Kona in 1970 and liked it so much I made this my home and didn't look back. Living on different parts of this Island, Maui and Kauai, I can truly say that The Great Kona Escape is in the BEST location on the Islands for kicking back and enjoying the perfect climate or visiting the many activities Kona has to offer. Now that I am semi-retired, I have more time to devote to making sure that your stay in Kona is all you dreamed it would be. I'm a medically trained Massage Therapist and can help you relax into Island mode - give you directions to just about anywhere - good advice for dining and activities, and assure your comfort and privacy at all times. You'll love it here.
Sandra purchased this house in 1990
The Great Kona Escape is at 900 foot elevation where the trade winds offer a gentle breeze to keep the warm days at a perfect temperature. The song birds are plentiful, the rainbows are seen often and the location is central to many beaches, golf courses, water activities, hiking, dining and shopping. We are on one acre of beautiful flowers, herbs, a vegetable garden and fruit trees, all this and great ocean views as well.
At The Great Kona Escape you can help yourself to the fruit on the trees, the organic vegetables and herbs in the garden, roam the property delighting in the many beautiful orchids and other tropical treats; while waiting your turn for an amazing Massage therapy session. There is WiFi and cable TV for your entertainment. The beaches and shops are just 4 miles down the road and your comfort is my highest priority.
We spent 2 weeks at Christmas and we couldn't of stayed at a nicer place. The privacy of having your own pool and grounds was the best part. The view was spectacular! Sandra and Ken couldn't have been nicer. They were there if you needed them, and tolerated our noisy grandchildren. They keep the grounds in excellent condition with fruit and avocado at your finger tips. This property is perfect for a large family or group since there is an additional rental unit on site. Location is pretty central to Kona and beaches. I highly recommend staying here.
excellent location beautiful setting wonderful help from Sandra. outside of kona to the north so minimal of traffic delays. open air housing with just enough elevation to avoid heat or air conditioning. excellent view from bedroom. only downside is cooking with a double burner hot plate and refer has too small of a freezer space for ice cream. Sandra gladly kept it for us until we needed it in a downstairs freezer which worked out fine. good food pantry for accessories. reasonably priced.
A wonderful home away from other tourist attractions, Easy to access from the airport, which you are never aware of during the stay.
Very private but our hosts Sandra and Ken were most welcoming and share great insights for info on the island when asked .
Very comfortable bed and a great kitchen for evenings in, when not dining out at a great choice of restaurants.
Loved the garden and an easy stroll down the road to enjoy the exotic Flora .
Really appreciated the boogie boards as we were on the beach most days.
Sandra's place was perfect for us. The apartment was nice, clean and had alot of space.
Thank you Sandra and Ken for being so welcoming and for making your space an affordable option. The quiet setting of your home was wonderful to return to after our busy days of traveling the island. The secluded grounds are visually delightful ~ what a treat to bring in various fruits and flowers from the yards. Much Aloha!
The rooms were perfectly kept, the views and the sunsets are beautiful. I found the location great, shopping, dinning and the beach easy to get to. Ken and Sandra were helpful with all things Big Island.I plan on returning in the near future. Ruth Shiro
