After traveling around the world while working and living abroad for many years, we have found no place on Earth that can match the combination of the year round perfect weather and Aloha spirit of Hawaii. We finished our search and purchased a wonderful spot just above Magic-White Sands. So we decided to build and open this Beach Villa to others seeking a wonderful vacation experience. By sharing our Beach Villa with others, it also helps us cover the high cost of property taxes, management and home improvements that are required to maintain the many amenities this property offers as a luxury-style villa home. We welcome you to experience the Spirit of Aloha, and hope that you will continue to return and stay with us over the coming years.
Why MGM chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
Hawaii is a magical place. A place and a spirit that words can not describe. One must experience this feeling, called Aloha, to understand. Most people say they just 'feel' better, healthier, and more alive here in Paradise. After vacationing in Kaanapali, on Maui many times, our family found the uncrowded beaches and quiet sanctuary of Kona more of a relaxing family-style vacation to soak up the true Aloha and get away from the crowds and commercialism of Lahaina. While the other Hawaiian islands all have their unique charms and attractions, The Big Island with it's uncrowded beaches, extra sunshine, active Volcano, and is yet in close proximity to Oahu & Maui and that made it the best choice for us.
What makes this Villa unique
Beach Location Counts! Being located 2 minutes away from Magic Sands beach is close enough to hear the awesome sounds of the Surf or even Whale singing in the evenings. At the same time enjoy our cooler elevation, while muting the on-going Traffic noise from Alii Drive. At our villa, you may leave the front door open, inviting natural Tropical breezes in. The large, front and back Lanai’s provide an expansive indoor - outdoor living Tropical ambiance and still enjoy your private comfort and spectacular views. Additionally, you will enjoy being up and away from the street level with parking in front of the villa, for easily moving supplies, luggage, and passengers. Parking is also plentiful on both sides of our wide cul-de-sac street, if you happen to have any extra-large vehicles. The property sits right next to the famous and historical significant 'Kuakini Wall', also known as the King's Highway. Another benefit of this Villa is that we offer free and plentiful storage of any personal large gear, whether it’s golfing clubs or your IronMan bikes. If you desire a truly relaxing Family or Retreat vacation experience, that will leave you feeling well rested after you return home, this is your Family's perfect choice.

Perfect house - perfect location
We wanted to take our two daughters and their families to Hawaii to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. I chose Falling Waters Villa and couldn't have been happier. The four kids spent hours everyday in the pool. We easily walked to Magic Sands Beach to snorkel and play in the water. On our last day some of us even saw spinner dolphins up close while swimming at the beach. The house had an abundant supply of beach towels, snorkel equipment, boggie boards, water shoes, etc. We went to Costco to stock up on food and cooked our breakfasts and dinners at the villa. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, silverware, spices, and misc items left from other renters. We loved the new Weber barbecue and used it evenings for dinner. We ate our meals on the patio in the backyard under the umbrellas and surrounded by little lights. The sleeping arrangements were abundant and we had plenty of room. Diane and Dave were very responsive and took care of our every need - reminding us of the farmer's market and when to put the garbage cans out on the curb. We had an amazing trip and hope to do it again someday. If so, we will definitely stay at Falling Waters Villa again.
ALOHA! We are completely delighted to have Hosted and met, Peggy, Dennis, and the other 8 members of their family, in July.
Their 45th Anniversary, was spent exploring and enjoying many of our world-class island activities, culinary treats and locations;
as well as making Falling Waters Kona, our Beach Villa ... their "Home Away From Home" .
They are no doubt, one of the Best American families that we have hosted over the past 2 year's.
As a family group of 10, they were so excited and happy to be here in Kona, friendly, courteous and affable.
As a family unit, they are/were a Perfect Fit for Falling Waters Kona, being low-key / maintenance-free, thoughtful and respectful of our Hawaiian Palace ... even their children left some cool hand-written cards with drawn figures ... upon departure. How many guest families do that? Even when there was a small boo-boo by one of the children, they immediately sent us a photo of it ... No one else has done that in 4 years. -
All we can say is that our Canadian friends from the North ... now some American competition!
Peggy ... Dennis ... You are most welcomed here ... anytime!

Great House, Great location
Loved our family stay over Christmas. House was large enough for 11 of us, with plenty of room for some quiet time if desired. Diane was a great host, and the house was in perfect condition when we arrived. Location is close to a couple of beaches, but they are packed (might have been because of Christmas) so best to drive a bit to get to larger beaches with more room. House has everything you need. We would stay there again
Love Falling Waters!
Our group of 5 adults and 3 kids (5 and under) stayed for almost 2 weeks at Falling Waters. Diane (owner ) is a lovely lady who obviously takes immense pride in providing a great vacation home with all of the amenities needed for a long stay. The master suite is amazing, spacious with a huge bath area, we woke up everyday to a wonderful chorus of birds! The other 2 upper rooms worked great for the adults with the 3 young kids and a jack & jill bathroom. The kitchen has all of the items needed to cook at the house. The back lanai was utilized almost every night with a new grill and white lights twinkling above. The pool and the story behind the mosaic sea life represented is magical, the kids were in it everyday! I loved sitting out every morning listening to the ocean waves. Magic Sands beach is a very short walk away (great local beach). The house has beach chairs, beach toys, flippers, etc provided. A brand new hot tub was used a few nights as well. For our size group it was perfect, no one was on top of each other and with 3 full bathrooms, no lines! You could probably squeeze a few more kids in but it was ideal for us at 8. Mahalo to Diane for providing such a lovely vacation home created with such obvious joy in each element and thank you to Dave for all of your help.
The Perfect Family Retreat
We brought our family with us - ten in total including 4 grandchildren ages 18 months through 10 years. The bedrooms, eating areas inside and out, the pool and last but not least the location on the island were super!! Dave and Diane were both very helpful and answered many questions before we even arrived and provided us with lots of useful tips. We all had a great adventure!!
ALOHA! Peter & Marilyn brought their family of 10 from Edmonton, Canada, to Kona for their 12-day holiday ... and we could not have been more pleased to have hosted this classy and delightful family.
Our overall guest experience with our Friends from the North (Canada), has always being positive on multiple levels ... and they are most welcomed here ... anytime!
Nous adressons nos sincères remerciements et MOST accueilli ici, vous revoilà! Aloha!
Great house for families/groups in great location
Great property, highly recommended for families.
Call it 4 and a half rather than 5 bedrooms, one bedroom is a small room within the master suite. But for a family with a small child that can be a really good thing, having a little one close to parents for those nighttime wakeups but still with the all-important door in between. Kitchen is well stocked, and they keep around the various condiments (salt, pepper, cooking oil, no-stick spray) that people buy so you don't end up buying a huge container of something you hardly use. Pool is perfect, not heated but that's really unnecessary in the climate as the water warms up in the sun and was pretty much always ideal temperature for a cool dip. Also there is a bench/shelf running the length of the pool that is ideal for smaller children to walk and play in the water without being totally submerged, then the rest of the pool is deep enough for jumping in. There's a hot tub that we never used because it was just too warm out to want to be in the hot tub. Lots of snorkel supplies, and kids stuff including flotation devices for pool/beach and sand play items for the beach. Also a couple of older strollers that work perfectly well. No air conditioning in the house, but for the most part with the windows open and the fans on the bedrooms are fine at night. The downstairs bedroom gets afternoon sun and is probably the only room in the house that really suffers from a lack of air conditioning. Back yard a little buggy at night, but loads of bug spray provided and with the bugs you get tons of geckos and chameleons that the kids loved.
Good location near Magic Sands beach. 15 min drive from central Kailua-Kona town. There was actually some extremely high surf when we were there, resulting in closures of some local beaches, and we did get to see the true "Magic Sands" phenomenon with all the sand washed off the beach a couple of days. But in even moderately high surf there is a protected area of beach at Magic Sands that is good for little ones. When the extreme surf was up we went to Keiki Ponds beach tucked away near downtown, highly recommend. KTA supermarket was a short drive away, had everything we needed, did not even go to Costco this trip which is a rarity for us. Favorite restaurants we recommend a short drive away: Annie's Island Fresh Burgers, Ray's on the Bay at the Sheraton, Sam Choy's (mainly for the view, especially sunset), Da Poke House for lunch (assuming you like poke).
Amazing family get away
We recently traveled to the Big Island and stayed at Falling Water in Kona. We have rented different houses on three of the islands the past 5 years, I can truthfully say this was the nicest house by far. It is spacious and incredibly decorated. Most places feel like the owners put in the minimum so the renters can just get by. Not Falling Water. We felt like we were staying in a good friends home. The master suite is amazing! It takes up half of the second floor and has a separate tub and shower. There is even a small bedroom in the master bedroom that our 5 year old grand daughter loved. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need to cook a gourmet meal.
It is situated off a quiet street with quiet neighbors. There is beautiful pool and hot tub just out the front door. There is a generous supply of beach equipment including snorkels, masks, fins, sand toys, umbrellas and beach chairs. It is within easy walking distance of a white sand beach and a short drive to another very nice surfing beach.
When we return to the Big Island we will certainly make it a priority to book Falling Waters again.
ALOHA and Thank You JM Family for taking the time to write this outstanding review, that get's to the main highlights regarding our Hawaiian Palace, Falling Waters Kona. It was a pleasure to Host the JM O'hana!
As seasoned travelers ourselves, we do appreciate when other experienced guests are genuinely impressed by our Villa, Amenities, Beach access, and just as important our Centralized Location, as a Gateway to everything else in Kona. - - -
