About Liz

We take excellent care of this beach house. We own a few other vacation rentals in Santa Cruz CA and Port Aransas TX that are also ocean front.

Liz purchased this house in 1992

Why Liz chose Kona Coast

My family was able to purchase this beach lot on the early 80's. We were fortunate enough to build a house on it in the early 90's. We decided to make it a vacation rental as it is zoned hotel.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy going outrigger Canoeing at Keauhou Canoe Club. Visitors are welcome. Snorkeling or taking a surf lesson across the street at Kahaluu beach is enjoyable. Golfing on a beautiful affordable Kona Country Club 1 mile south is enjoyable.

A small charming house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house and found the host very accommodating. If like us you are stuck with a evening flight, a small flashlight is useful as it was very dark outside when we first arrived (the solar powered porch lights worked the rest of the week, maybe a gecko slept on the solar panel that first day). The host recommends coming during the day and I see why, the drive way is hidden when coming from the north and gps does not understand the address. But the host gave good directions. it is in a great location for snorkelling and watching people learning to surf. It's a good house for a couple.

Clean, well accessorized, good location

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, well appointed, top of the line appliances, many kitchen accessories, spices, pots, pans,etc. If you can stand the heat at night, you can cook just about anything.

Ceiling fan, main floor; 3 fans for bedroom. If you are used to air conditioning and as stated, there is no air conditioning, you will need those fans. Very little breeze in the evening. Large shower, no bathtub.

Top floor is the flat roof of the house with a large canopy, great view.

Unit has 2 folding beach chairs and a beach umbrella. Very handy when visiting other beaches.

Quiet neighbourhood, loudest noise is the birds as the dawn breaks.

Across the road from one of the better snorkeling spots, wide variety of fish but difficult to enter and leave the water due to the rocky shoreline. Bring your water slippers.

Large shopping plaza within a few miles; big supermarket, restaurants, etc, even a cinema.

You will need a rental car just to get around the island and to see all the different attractions.

If it had air conditioning, it would be a 5 star.

We (2) were there May 3 to May 17, 2017.

Owner's Response: If I had air conditioning the rent would be doubled as Hawaii has one of the highest electrical rates

Nice place near the beach

  • 4 of 5

A nice sized house for two people near a nice snorkeling beach. The house was very clean and everything worked well. Even tho there was no air conditioning, the house was comfortably cool with the ocean breeze and fans. Nice sound system for listening to Hawaiian music. Nice view across the street to enjoy Kona sunsets!

Owner's Response: House is not advertised as having A.C. and the rental agreement states that the house does not have A.C. just to be clear.

Perfect location, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean house located across the street from wonderful snorkeling and convenient to many other lovely beaches and sightseeing. The kitchen has new appliances, there are plenty of dishes and towels and other amenities, there's a washer and dryer, and there are nice outdoor spaces for sitting and eating and watching the ocean. The house is just enough off the main street to be relatively quiet. Great base of operations for a visit to the Kona side of Hawaii.

A few considerations:

– There is no air conditioning and it does get warm, but you can keep the space cool by using the windows, window shades and the many fans available in the house.

– This is probably not the best option for people with physical challenges; each room is on its own floor and you do have to climb stairs.

– There are two parking spots, but they're not the easiest to get into if you're not used to parallel parking. Consider renting a small to medium sized car instead of a behemoth SUV.

Owner's Response: Regarding the house's parking, my rental agreement for my guests mentions cars no larger than mini vans will fit in my parking spaces. The parking is free and is explained to my guests how and where to park at this rental house.
