Watch the sunset each evening from the comfort of your lounge chair, mai-tai in hand, on the lanai. If you get lucky, you may see the famous green flash.

About Dana

Since this picture, we are much much older, we have a 5 yr old and 7 yr old now! Both made in Hawaii. We had been coming to Hawaii for 7 years before moving here full time with our family a few years ago.

Dana purchased this house in 2007

Why Dana chose Kona Coast

We love being close to the beach. The area is very kid friendly. We can walk to the beach in 5 minutes and when the kids get tired, be back home quickly. Magic Sands beach is a good family beach.

What makes this house unique

The house is very open and airy. It has a great Hawaiian feel.

Great house for our family of all ages

  • 5 of 5

My family of 14 people ranging from 4 yrs old to 67 were so sad to leave Hawaii this trip. We had a great time at this perfectly located and equipped beach house. It is comfortably furnished, but we didn't have to worry so much about our 4 children ruining anything, because the furniture and fabrics are all heavy duty and kid proof. The pool was much fun when we got tired of spending our day at the beach. The beach is only a short distance from the house. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment. The beds were comfortable. Joe even supplied us with a pak and play for our 1 yr old. The house doesn't have glass windows. It is a beach house with screens and louvers, which let us smell the ocean and hear the waves. There was no way we could afford a beach front home, but this home is so close to the ocean-it satisfied our need for "ocean" while being affordable for us all. There is plenty of parking and the huge screened in lanai was perfect for evenings meals and get together.

One of our toddlers tried to flush a wash cloth down a toilet, but Joe (owner) came right over to get the toilet unplugged. Thanks Joe! Dana gave us many suggestions as to what to do and where to go with a family our size of varying ages. Thanks Dana! We really loved the kids beach near Kukio.

I highly recommend this home to you and your family! You will love it too.

Amazing rental, clean, comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic visit. The home was clean and had a great island feel. The beds are comfortable, and there was lots of space for our large group. We enjoyed hanging out by the pool and gathering in the indoor lanai together. The beaches were close, as was town. The home had a nice cross breeze due to the screened windows, so we were comfortable even in the hot August weather. There were no bugs in the house. Sure, they are outside, as this is the tropics, but we were careful to keep the kitchen clean and food sealed, and we had no issues. Joe and Dana were wonderful with suggestions and were always available to answer any questions. We will return and stay in this home next time we visit. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

We did not realize that the house we are renting had no airconditiong.

  • 3 of 5

I wish that we had investigated a little more about this house. This house has no air conditioning and some of the rooms are simply unlivable in hot summer days and nights. The POOL was full of dead mosquitos and other bugs so we could not use it either. We also saw some heavy duty roaches in the house in addition to other bugs. Many of our family members moved out to other places. We were very frustrated with our choice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, as we take all reviews very seriously and strive to make your experience at our property the best that it can possibly be! We are very sorry that our home was not up to your expectations. If these issues were reported during your stay, there are measures we could have taken to help make your vacation a more positive experience. The past few summers have had some hurricane or tropical storm remnants that have played havoc with our usually reliable trade winds. This does take the natural AC away (cooling trade winds) and makes it hotter than usual. Most homes in Hawaii are not air conditioned. There are ceiling fans in every room, plus additional floor fans are available. The best part of the tropical islands is the weather and the ability to live with open lanai/patio doors most of the year. As people like to come and go through those open doors, so do the pests. Hawaii is the tropics with its share of bugs that fly mostly around in the rainy season (which is mostly mid-June/July/Aug. Along with the scheduled pest control visits, the pest control company visited immediately, and they have sprayed and baited for all pests. We inform renters not to leave any food out. We also have a professional pool service come out every Wednesday. There is also a pool skimmer with a pole hanging on the fence if needed. We apologize for not meeting your expectations. Just to help you in the future, you may find it beneficial to spend more time reading the property description before selecting your next vacation rental, as all of our photos that you saw are accurate and up-to-date, so we are unclear why you chose our tropical home if you do not find the decor, fixtures, no AC and general layout appealing. We let you know in our welcome email with helpful info and directions and with signs at the house that if any problems should arise, the guest can contact us no matter what time of day or how small the issue is. We live on Island only 10 minutes away. We delight in making sure our guests achieve a 5-star experience, and it pains us that this didn’t happen with your stay. Mahalo, Joe

Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a good time on the big island. This house is located near two beaches; size is big enough for our group of 15 people – 8 adults and 7 kids ranging in age from 1 to 15 years old.

It is great that each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The dining room table was not big enough for our group. However, the outside dining table on the screened porch was big enough for us. The pack and plays, high chair and children's lifejackets were wonderful to have. Having two sets of laundry equipment was helpful for our large group.

The furnishings at this property are outdated. This property needs some updating, a deep cleaning, some pest control and some repairs. Dining room and living room furniture is old and heavy. Carpet and upholstery needs some good cleaning. We found some cockroaches in bedrooms and ants in the kitchen. Some of the fan speeds cannot be adjusted and some ceiling lights are not working.

This house is not air-conditioned. We relied on outside breeze and ceiling fans to cool off the rooms. Some days are humid and hot in the rooms even with all fans running. The back bedrooms can get really hot all day even with all fans running.

Kids loved the above ground pool because it is small and shallow. It is only good for the adults as a dip pool. The kayak in the garage has a leak. Our adult children took it out to the beach and it flipped three times. They found it filled it water when they brought it ashore. Understand this kayak is not part of the rental but the owner should either put a warning sign on it or dispose of it altogether.

Our flight was at 8PM and we requested for 5PM checkout. Owner granted a 1PM checkout without additional charge. However, there was a $300 charge for a 5PM check out. We paid the $300 so our grandkids could take a nap before the flight.

Hawaii is the tropics with its share of bugs that fly mostly around in the “rainy season" (which is mostly mid-June/July/Aug). We have been using the same professional cleaners for 3 years now with no issues. They just shampooed the carpets and replaced the dining room rug. The fan with the issue was repaired. Our 24 foot high ceilings and wrap-around lanais (porches) are unique and typical of the tropical lifestyle Homes is Hawaii are built in a way that use the trade winds for cooling homes. Most homes in Hawaii are not air conditioned. There are ceiling fans in every room, plus additional floor fans are available. If you would have informed us in advance regarding late check out instead of the night before, we would have accommodated, but the cleaners had it scheduled for that morning and have a fee for rescheduling.

Phenomenal!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing stay. The house is really close to a sandy beach. The baby gear was very helpful - especially the two strollers. Kitchen is well equipped and we ate almost all of our meals here. Good for a big family get-togethers. Hosts were very helpful and responsive to a any questions we had.

Family vaca on The Big Island

  • 3 of 5

VRBO initial survey question is not fair or satisfactory. Now onto the review. We'll try to be balanced in our comments. Good location, with easy access to shopping plus beaches. Also good access to highways for tours or excursions. Unique home plan with for us. We were a group of 8 with 2 kids 4 and under. Room to keep everyone happy. Tons of beach toys were made available for use by the guests. The hosts Dana and Joe were super helpful. We had a challenge with hot water and one text message had Joe promptly fixing the issue. They provided an info package that was very helpful. The ONLY thing that held us back from giving a higher rating was in our opinion, the property could a bit of a freshening up as well as a deep cleaning. To be fair this was our 1st trip to the big island so we may be ignorant to what one must pay to get "fresh and clean or like new". The place was not dirty but a good carpet and upholstery clean would be an assett in our groups' opinion. Thanks for your hospitality.
