About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-18)

Ocean View 5,000 sq ft plantation estate. You know you have arrived... as you navigate the long private drive and park beneath the high, open Porte Cochere. Enter through the magnificent crystal cut glass front doors. You are greeted by an expansive view of the blue Pacific Ocean, framed by an open 40 foot sliding glass wall of the great room with it's own indoor atrium reaching 25 feet to the sky light.

Stepping out onto the huge tiled Lanai, the only sounds you hear are tropical bird songs and rustling palms.

To your right is the gourmet kitchen where your meals can be prepared for you*, or you can be your own chef. Formal dining room, or lunch on the Lanai, or just party around the pool and practice snorkeling for your ocean dive. (*Gourmet Chef optional *scuba lessons available).

Every night watch the golden sunset, and later in the evening curl up in the library room with a south seas novel, or enjoy your favorite Video or DVD on the library room television.

Like to listen to your own music? Just put a CD into the 'Great Room' stereo.

Stargazing is a nightly event against a black sky among a beautiful backdrop created by nature.

Everything you would expect from a luxury plantation home is provided.

The plantation grounds were designed in a way to allow each living area privacy yet access to the garden and pool areas. In all cases we can customize all accommodations for every guest and cater your needs.

Parking: under cover of the Porte Cochere of the main Plantation House. You have your own private spot for two cars. Guest parking is also available.

Check-in 4 PM. Check-out 10 AM

We offer discounts on scuba lessons/certifications/refresher courses and intro courses if you are staying at our home. Please set up lessons in advance of your stay to ensure availability.

Beautiful home in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 18 people (11 adults and 7 kids) stayed at this home from February 15 - 22. The grounds are beautiful with a wonderful view. There are 6 separate bedrooms with their own bathroom. That worked perfectly for the 6 individual families staying at this location.


- Beautiful grounds. Large, nicely landscaped yard.

- Plenty of outside lawn chairs.

- Two dining room tables that each seat 12+ people. One is outside and one is inside.

- Nice pool. A little cool, but the kids didn't seem to mind.

- Each bedroom is large and has its own bathroom.

- A long private road leading to the house gives you nice privacy.

- Owners were very responsive and lived just around the corner.

- The portable basketball hoop was a very nice addition for our grandkids.

- There were a lot of videos for the kids to enjoy.


- Gets a bit warm at night. They provide a number of fans which helps.

- Lots of roosters in the area, which make a lot of noise from about 3:00 AM on.

- Kitchen is a bit small for as many people as we had.

- Would have been nice to have more towels. We had to do wash a few times a day.

We would highly recommend this beautiful house for a large group.

Awesome vacation home for large family.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 adults and 4 kids under 3 yrs. We have stayed at several vacation rental homes on the Hawaiian Islands and this was probably the best laid out house so far. It is huge. Everybody pretty much had their own suite. There were so many places to gather or you could find a quite place to yourself. We spent most of our time enjoying the pool. We made almost every breakfast and dinner at the house. The kitchen was well equipped. The house has tons of pool toys, boogey boards, umbrellas, squirt guns, beach towels, coolers etc. Air conditioning was not an issue, as the elevation of the house and opening windows and doors everywhere kept the place cool enough at night. It will take a few days to get used to the many wild chickens crowing VERY early in the morning. Apparently they are not sure when exactly dawn is.

We very much enjoyed our stay here and have already recommended it to some friends who are planning to visit the Big Island.

Beautiful Home with plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with plenty of room for my large family of 17! Joe, the owner, met us at the door and gave us the personal tour and made sure that all the beds needed were made with fresh clean bedding. The house was complete with kitchen and pool/recreation essentials. Plenty of parking as every family had a car. The only thing was that there was a quiet time after 9/10pm, and any little noise travels down to the neighbors. With 17 family members having a good time, it was a little to stay a little quiet as much as we tried! Other than that, it was an amazing vacation at the Plantation!

Best Vacation ever

We travel to a new destination every Christmas and this vacation truly was one of the best experiences of my life, Thank you Joe and Dana for your hospitality. The house had everything we needed. plenty of space for everyone and our beds were very very comfortable and clean. the pool was super clean the sound system was great, the location was close to everything. I can't think of anything to complain about.

Excellent facility in great location, clean and well maintained, help next door

  • 4 of 5

We were 17 members of a family. The sleeping accommodations were good to excellent. The kitchen and furnishings were adequate. The pool, living areas and other facilities were great. Everyone had a good time enjoying the house and the wonderful environment offered by Kona and the Big Island.

Fantastic family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time together at the Kona Plantation Estate. We loved the house, it was really perfect for the 14 of us staying there. Dana and Joe were very responsive to our needs and made our stay there very comfortable. We loved the pool, although cool it was really refreshing. It was lovely to come home and be able to watch the beautiful sunsets from our lanai, cook our dinner in the very well stocked kitchen and then enjoy our dinners together. Good layout of the house, some really nice decor, most of us were very comfortable although some of the beds could use a bit of an update. Overall our stay was wonderful and if coming back to the Big Island with family would look into renting this house again. Thank you Joe and Dana for helping to make this a very memorable family vacation.
