Ocean View House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Dedicated to Pele with representations of her throughout the house, Lava House is halfway between Kailua-Kona and the volcano. This home can be a writer's secluded paradise or a spacious family vacation spot. Though on its own unique lava landscape, Ocean View is surrounded by beaches, bays and tropical vegetation.

Huge gourmet kitchen, 2,900 square foot lanai, and nearby farmers' markets ensure dining island style. Nights are cool and comfortable. Coffee comes with morning sun on the lanai, brightening the ocean view.

Guaranteed to be your most diversified tropical vacation ever!

Why joanne icovino chose Ka'u District

Lava House has a great ocean view, marvelous dawns and great sunsets. At 3000 feet the temperature is always comfortable. We are centrally located for travelling all over the island.

Wonderful, Warm, and Hawaiian

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful stay! The house is immaculate and just as advertised.

The lanai is the perfect place to grill, chill, and enjoy your meals of local fish after a busy day at Southpoint or other areas of this wondrous island.

Linda checked with us at Check-in and at mid-week to make sure everything is OK and was great!

There were plenty of cooking utensils and pantry basics for the kitchen. The rooms have comfortable furniture and beds and we will likely be back.

Short but memorable stay! Everything from start to finish with booking this vacation rental went so smooth. We only wish we could have enjoyed staying there longer. The house was a perfect size for all our needs. I recommend using the fireplace, it gets pretty cold at night. This will definitely be our first choice for our next visit to Hawai'i Island.

Very beautiful, peaceful, specious, clean, decorated house.

  • 4 of 5

It would have been perfect with availability of 100% kona coffee for brewing upon arrival.

We enjoyed staying at Lava house. Everything was in place for cooking our own food as needed. I would stay again if I visit big island in future.

Spacious and Great Views and Close to Great Sites

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect in every way and so convenient to visit our relatives in Oceanview. If you are not visiting relatives in Oceanview like we were, It is definitely a great place to visit so many "Top spots" on the Big Island. We visited South Point, Green Sands, Volcanoes National Park, Black Sands, Whittington Park, little known Kawa Beach, Milolii, Hookena Beach (now open), great eats at Hana Hou and Pulaluu Bakery in Naalehu. So many great sites to see within a short drive and Kau Coffee everywhere. If you really want the city life, there is Kona and Hilo an hour/hour 1/2 away.

The house with three bedrooms and 2 baths was perfect for our group and could really accomodate a larger family with the 3 queen beds and a queen sofa/bed. The kitchen/great room is huge and the wrap-around deck/lanai is amazing.

The owner is fantastic to work with and Linda, the caretaker, was there if you needed something or had any questions. Everything made for a very comfortable vacation and visit to the Big Island.

You have several people, in Oceanview and Illinois that will spread the word about this great rental on the Big Island.

Beautiful home with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Be prepared for brisk mornings that will quickly warm up as the sun rises. Mornings on the deck outside, with our coffee, were especially nice as the sun always seems to shine in the mornings. The evening sunsets were gorgeous. We enjoyed being half way between the Kona and Hilo sides of the island for exploring, enjoyed meeting the locals in the area, and the colorful little towns that also intrigued Mark Twain. Linda keeps the house well cared for--fabulous big kitchen if you are traveling with friends or family and can you beat that price? It was a different experience and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Mahalo Joanne and Linda! The Lamourias.

Ocean view is midway between Kona and Hilo and 35 miles from Volcano National Park and 10 miles from the sacred area of Southpoint. The black sand beach and the green sand beach are within 15 miles. There are farmer's markets 12 miles away in the charming town of Naalehu and a buddist temple in enchanting Wood Valley. We are only 2 miles away from Kuhuku Region of Volcano National Park where Saturdays are frequently the time of hikes thru the region. The children especially love the Junior Ranger Hikes. See volcano Nat park website.
