The 'Apple Oasis' is unique with a peaceful and serene private lawn along the shoreline. Can you smell the marsh- mellows roasting on your fire by the ocean? It's like heaven!
On the waters edge, you overlook some of the most pristine coral reefs and surf breaks in all the islands. If you're lucky, during their regular seasonal visits, you'll see Humpback Whales, pods of Dolphins, Mata Rays and Green Sea Turtles at your Lanai steps.
The house location on the island is a perfect starting point for nearby activities and day trips. The house is located in an ideal spot just a block away from the best snorkeling beach on the island, Kahaluu Beach Park. There is a great view of the parks' popular surf break from the lanai where you can watch the local surfers all day long.
You will love lounging in the shady peacefulness of your private seaside palm grove looking out over the Kahaluu Bay surf break. The tranquil privacy and natural beauty is rhythmically enhanced by the constant sounds of the breaking waves on your very own private oceanfront shoreline.
Afternoons are a great time to stretch out and relax in the comfort of your soothing Kona hammocks. Sleep inside with a view of the waves from your bed or sleep outside under the stars while being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the sea and the moon setting over the Pacific.
Without leaving the property, you can barbeque and enjoy snorkeling, swimming, diving, shore fishing, sunbathing, hammock laying, sunset watching, paddle-boarding and kayaking. It will be your own private vacation home for a romantic getaway, family vacations, reunions, spiritual retreats, and weddings. Wheelchairs can easily navigate this disability- friendly property.

Thanks for allowing us to once again stay at this magical property! It is such a beautiful spot. We have so much fun climbing the lava out front and watching the sea turtles. Watching the waves roll in is mesmerizing! It will hold a special spot for my son and his girlfriend, as they got engaged during our stay. We look forward to making more family memories there in the future. It is so nice having such a spacious home with all the amenities you need right there. We grilled out several times, and were able to save money by fixing our own meals. Thank you Richard and family for sharing your home. Special thanks to Carl for his thoughtfulness during our stay!
"Love is in the air". Thanks for returning to the Apple Oasis and congratulations on your engagement! Aloha Richard
My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at the Apple Oasis. I can't say enough good things. We enjoyed the beautiful deck, the turtles in the tide pools in front of the house, the hammocks, the outdoor shower, the yard, the beach toys, the barbecue, and the amazing sense of calm and happiness at the house. The house, decks, and yard are so thoughtfully decorated; you can see it's been a labor of love for many years. Thank you for sharing your oasis with us. We hope to come back soon.
Spring Break in Hawaii
The house accommodated us well. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen, the many towels, all the beach and snorkeling gear. The views are spectacular. No safe/easy access to the water right at the house (rocky). Location is about 15 minutes south of town. Great patios for lounging outside, hammocks are a nice touch.
My family stayed at the Apple Oasis for 10 days for the Ironman triathlon and wished we were able to stay much longer. The views are amazing from the vast back yard of the property. We were greeted as soon as we arrived and all of the amenities were explained to us. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing and active vacation including snorkeling gear, hammocks, an outdoor pool/ping pong table, lush towels, a fully equipped kitchen and air conditioned bedrooms. The owner provided us with lists of suggested restaurants and things to do on the island and he was very responsive to questions and requests. The property was well maintained and very accessible to most attractions. I highly recommend this property for your next vacation.
Ocean front gem
Our week long stay at the "Apple Oasis" was spectacular. The home is at an ideal location steps from the ocean. The views, lanai, and private beach are the highlights. The kitchen is well stocked and the house is very comfortable and shows pride of ownership.
Wonderful Stay in Feb 2017
We were 2 couples that stayed for 2 weeks and it was thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable!
Things we liked:
- excellent host help from Richard
- views were outstanding
- spacious living areas, including outside
- really well stocked kitchen supplies
- fantastic outdoor shower with Ocean views
- short walk to good snorkeling at Kahaluu Beach Park
- short & easy drive to Kona and Keauhou Shopping Center
Things to know:
- the Master Bedroom is Ocean Front with great views and the Master Bath has a shower with a view! King Bed. In room air-conditioner which helped on humid days/nights.
- the 2nd Bedroom has a slider onto the side of lanai facing the building next door with views of the ocean if you are standing right there but not from the bed. Another window is high above the bed and faces the Ali'i Drive. In room air-conditioner which helped with humid days/nights and street noise. Queen Bed.
- the Master Bedroom door can be closed so that others can access that bathroom and laundry which is handy
- the "main" bathroom is across an entrance hallway from the 2nd bedroom and also accesible from the living room
- because the front door is not used, we found the space in that entrance hallway perfect for storing all of our luggage
- there were not 4 low beach chairs when we were there and we wish there were the back-pack kind to make it easier to carry to Kahaluu Beach Park as the walk there is a little treacherous with cars whizzing closely in some stretches with little shoulder space and at times felt long in the heat trying to carry all of our things (we are in our 60s)
- the grill wasn't working when we were there and we had to contact the maintenance guy several times to see about getting it fixed (it ended up not being a big deal as we found so many fun restaurants nearby to eat at!)
- it is difficult to pull into and out of the driveway with our large SUV but we eventually mastered some ways to do it
- it is an older home so not in perfect, updated contdition which did not matter at all to our group but might to some
- we were disappointed to not be able to snorkel right off the rocks in front of the house due to high surf the week we were there but at the end of the week we did get to see honus in the tide pools
We would highly recommend and stay there again!
