About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + sofa-bed -air conditioning available, Sleeps 4-6

Air Conditioning available-Two Bedrooms with CalKing in master and Queen in 2nd bedroom plus Queen sofabed in livingroom to accommodate 4 to 6 guests. Bed's are very comfortable expensive Ortho posturepedic foam and are guaranteed no bedbugs.

This unique location offers beautiful turquoise surf breaking views from every room of the house. The 'Old Hawaii' atmosphere of Koa wood and vaulted ceilings create an open and spacious feeling of aloha and royalty. There is plenty of space with private relaxing places to escape and relax.

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.

Within 1 mile of the property you'll find a supermarket, a drugstore, good restaurants, "luxury" shopping, health/facial/nail spas, movie theaters, tennis courts, and hotels providing delicious Sunday morning buffets and live local entertainment . Another mile away are world class golf courses, genuine "tourist" luaus, a dive shop, snorkel and dive excursion boats, big game fishing boats, kayaks, canoes, and paddle-board rentals.

Come see why Hawaiian royalty and their families lived along this magical oasis shoreline . Melt away your stress and pressures as you rest and listen to the waves break below your Lanai.

Full service property managers are always available for any questions or emergencies.

We also can introduce you to some of the best massage therapists on the Island. Yes the internet wifi connection is fast and reliable and our hi-definition T.V.'s in all the rooms use Time Warner Cable.

Richard Applebaum purchased this house in 1987

Why Richard Applebaum chose Kona Coast

It's like Heaven! The water and wildlife at the home will create a unique vacation that you will never forget.

The house is clean and bug-free. The beds are expensive Ortho high-density foam mattresses guaranteed bed-bug free!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location with extensive ocean frontage...not overlooked, plenty of space and comfortable. Close to Kona restaurants and amenities yet you feel you are in your own world.



Very functional, well equipped. The outdoor shower (as mentioned in other reviews), is a big hit. There's plenty of space and we saw other rentals which were more expensive but nowhere near as nice.

Ocean front oasis even better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Huge expanse of ocean front property including a lawn, patios, outdoor furniture, and secluded outdoor shower after snorkeling at Kahaluu Beach Park. Just 10 minute walk to best snorkeling we've ever seen anywhere in the world!

Convenient location where the sound of the surf covers any street noise. Being January, two high surf warnings kept us from going in the water from the house, but watching the surfers was equally fun. The house is equipped to entertain. Very well stocked kitchen and lots of seating inside and out. But for the two of us, it was the most relaxing week we've ever enjoyed. Property manager Carl was available for help and any issues were dealt with quickly.

We Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, spacious, well appointed home in a stellar location. Ocean view was terrific and the large lot afforded privacy and comfort. Excellent attention to detail in getting us to the property and oriented to the home by a representative of the gracious owner. We have stayed in 5 other homes along Alii Drive and this was the best.

Oceanfront Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Last month was our 4th stay at Apple Oasis and it definatly won’t be our last. We love the ocean view, the sound of the waves, watching the surfers, the excellent Wi-Fi, the security and how convenient the exceptionally well-stocked house is to everything. Richard is the perfect host and goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need. He also keeps things updated. Between our stay last Feb. & Sept., he replaced the refrigerator (ss with an icemaker), the microwave, the kitchen faucet, the fans in the kitchen & living room, the table & chairs on the lanai plus new matching chaise lounges. A new dishwasher & a new washer & dryer were also scheduled for delivery. And we thought the house was perfect before!!

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect and Richard is a wonderful host! My husband and I enjoyed 5 glorious days at Apple Oasis. The home is spacious, clean , comfortable and well stocked. The location is magical!!! We enjoyed breakfast out on the lanai each morning watching the surfers, dolphins and the waves crash along the shore. Loved the proximity to town and beaches. Our time here was too short and we look forward to a return trip to Apple Oasis!
