Kailua-Kona House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6, Oceanfront and Gorgeous!

Your recently remodeled and updated Kona Beach House sits on the point of a bay with lush tropical landscaping, flowers and palm-trees surrounding a swimming pool and jacuzzi/spa. The serenity is not marred by street-noise or house-parties. Situated at Kona Onenalo: a gated 12-home complex four miles south of Kailua-Kona town and one mile north of Keauhou (a golfers' haven).

Your two-story Kona Beach House is about 15-yards (meters) from the surf; and the crashing waves on the lava and beach are best experienced from our two large lanais. You can watch the surfers, the sunsets, or just look at the turquoise blue Pacific Ocean where spinning dolphins and whales swim. With a nearly constant temperature in the 80s, and a cool ocean breeze, your oceanfront Kona Beach House is a tropical dream.

It is ideal for multi-generation family vacations.

The oceanfront, two-story, 2000 square-foot house has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people. The main level includes a bedroom/study with two twin beds, full bathroom, kitchen, dining area, and spacious living room that opens to the main lanai with its dramatic Pacific Ocean view. We spend most of our time at home on this gorgeous lanai!

The top level has two lovely bedroom suites. The large master bedroom has a king bed and its own private lanai overlooking the ocean, with a lotus pond – an incredible view and perfect for an early morning stretch or yoga. The second bedroom has two extra-long twin-beds (that can be made into a second king-bed, if desired). Each bedroom has its own private bathroom.

As this is a tropical home with open-air louvered windows and strategically placed ceiling fans, there is no need for air conditioning - the nearly constant ocean trade winds fan a breeze from the ocean during the day and from the mountains at night. There is however an air conditioner in the upstairs guest bedroom for your added comfort.

The architect designed Kona Onenalo with a focus on maximum privacy. With this in mind there are minimal window coverings to take full advantage of both air flow and views.

Your gated Kona Beach House is RIGHT ON THE OCEAN! Just steps away is a “private” ocean swimming and snorkeling cove with live coral, undersea caves, and magnificent fish & turtles. There is a locked gate that takes you to this cove.

(Note: we recommend only experienced ocean swimmers enter this cove as sometimes the surf and surge can be harmful to beginners.)

Additionally, there are two great beaches on Ali'i Drive. The first, Magic Sands/White Sands Beach, is a five minute stroll from the house, and is good for swimming and boogie boarding or board & body surfing. The second, Kahalu'u Beach, a ten minute walk, usually calm & safe, is great for snorkeling (and shore-entry scuba), and has green sea turtles that can be found feeding and sunning themselves.

More information, maps, and pictures and video are shown below.

About Dorene Petersen

YourKonaBeachHouse is our second home! We offer it as a vacation rental when we're not using it and you will love the location, tropical-surroundings, house, and decor as your second home -- in Hawaii. When not in Kona, we live in Portland, OR.

Why Dorene Petersen chose Kona Coast

Our house is one of 12 free-standing, 2000 sq-ft houses on a point of land protruding into the Pacific Ocean. It is truly unique -- it could not be built today because the house is too close to the ocean by present codes. The 12-houses are in a gated community with good parking, and our house is far from Ali'i Drive so that there is no street-noise. Since all of the owners are also using the houses as second homes, and only a few provide them as vacation rentals as we do, the community typically has only 2-4 of the homes occupied at any one time -- so tranquility is assured,

What makes this house unique

While enjoying the beauty of the surroundings, my guests and I have difficult choices to make each day: Putting on snorkel-gear and walking through our private gate into the water of our '4-mile cove', full of coral, fish, and turtles -- so appealing that the dive and snorkel boats often bring their customers. Or, strolling 100-yards to the popular White Sands (or Magic Sands) beach for swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, or just sunning. Often we do both of these, and finish the day in our pool and jacuzzi -- and enjoy drinks and a barbeque dinner on our lanai at sunset.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of the condo in relation to downtown Kailua. The property was clean and spacious and perfect for our family of 5. The pool was perfect for our one year old daughter and we all enjoyed swimming in it on a daily basis. White Sands beach is just a couple mins walk from the property and we frequently this every day. We would absolutely love to stay here again on our next visit to the big island. Dorene, the owner of the property, was so accommodating with all of our questions leading up to our stay and during our stay. I cannot say enough about our positive experience and the memories we will cherish with our family while on vacation here. It was hard to leave, especially when we viewed a pod of dolphins swimming just outside the kitchen window upon our departure. What a special place to stay! Mahalo!

Great Kona Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Kona Beach House!!! The property was clean and very spacious. The grounds around the property were also very well kept with beautiful flowers everywhere! The location was great with access to wonderful beaches near by and plenty of shops and restaurants within a few minutes drive. We would definitely stay here again and the communication with the owner was very good. The house itself had everything you would need for a great Hawaii beach vacation....from a fully equipped kitchen beach toys, sun chairs and boogie boards for beach excursions! The views and sunsets from the house were breathtaking and beautiful. We loved hearing the sound of the crashing waves! It did get a little warm at times and the fans that were provided were much appreciated! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home!!!

Amazing condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect selection for our family. The house is spacious and the rooms are comfortable. Do not worry about the lack of air conditioning, once you open the windows the ocean breeze cools the interior to a perfect temperature. The location of the condo is great for accessing the town of Kona, local beaches, snorkeling/diving and other attractions into the mountain areas. The pool and hot tub are excellent and the neighbors are friendly. The best part about this condo though is the ocean views. If you think the pictures are nice just wait until you see them for yourself. The manager Dorene is wonderful too. She responds quickly and is always very helpful with any questions or concerns that you may have. We highly recommend this condo and would stay there again without hesitation.

Superb Accommodation in Heavenly Setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with his sister recently spent a week in Kona with their brother and his wife to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. It was an amazing holiday. Kona and surrounding areas are lovely but a large part of what made our vacation so special was because we stayed at this superb location. The house is beautifully appointed and very well maintained. The owners are very gracious hosts who were very attentive to our needs. The fact that the house is located right next to the ocean was a big draw for us. We spent all of our spare time out on the lanai enjoying the view and sounds of the Pacific. The property is also very well maintained and the fact that the house was situated in a gated community gave us an added sense of security. The complex was also very quiet and peaceful. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to temporarily escape to a lovely piece of heaven.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at YourKonaBeachHouse. It sure sounds like the quiet, private townhouse community and short walk to White Sands Beach were just what your family needed to rest and recharge:) We welcome you back anytime! Best wishes, Dorene

Perfect On Every Front

  • 5 of 5

My family has been blessed to have traveled to the islands several times and we have stayed at every type of property from resort to Bed and Breakfast guest homes in the mountains. Nothing can compare to this amazing home away from home here in Kona. It starts with location and setting. First let me say that having been to four of the islands now and stayed on both the Hilo and now Kona sides of HI I will never stay anywhere else but in Kona. This house is literally surrounded on two sides by nothing but lava coast and breaking waves! A short 10 min. drive (just far enough to stay outside the tourist crowds) to restaurants, stores, nightlife and most anything you could need. You can literally walk to one of the nicest public beaches on the island but not to worry the gated nature of the property and natural lava coast separates you form the crowds for privacy. Now about the home itself. Having stayed at many rental homes on three US oceans I have come to appreciate what a harsh environment the salt air, wind driven sand and moisture are on anything man made. The maintenance staff on the grounds of this gated community must never sleep. Very well maintained given the challenges mentioned above. The interior was very clean and equally well maintained including all the amenities you might need to feel as though you were in your own home. What amazing hosts these owners are. Please be mindful of this and respect the property when enjoying your stay as it takes very special and trusting people to open their home to their guests and we as renting travelers are so fortunate that great owners like this are out there. Amazing value, amazing accommodations, amazing time had by all!

You cannot do better in my experience of vacation rentals.

Thank You Our Hosts

Owner's Response: Thank you, Ohio guests, for your thoughtful comments. We must say we were very happy to read them! We are also blessed by having guests who treat our home as they treat their own home. We are also blessed to have helpful and welcoming neighbors, and a highly competent Board of Directors. We also have excellent, caring, maintenance people for the landscaping, hardscape, and pool/Jacuzzi. We are blessed to have superb housecleaners and less-obvious specialists such as pest-control. It is amazingly difficult and expensive to maintain our small 12-home community to a high standard in this difficult oceanfront environment – as our reviewer appreciated. And, we are doubly blessed by being located in a unique and special Kona paradise. Again, thank you for your review! Gunnel & Mike

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Kona as my wife and I had never stayed on the Big Island before. We were there with my in laws and our 9 month old baby and a wonderful time! Their house opened right next to the pool and an amazing view of the Ocean. Every morning and night we ate out on the patio listening to the waves. Everywhere you went in the house you had a view of the ocean! Being right next to the pool allowed us easy access to take our baby in and out of the pool with ease as needed! We were also only a 5 minute walk from a sandy beach! 15 minutes from town worked great to go out and eat the 2 nights we decided too! We are definitely planning on staying here again, next time we visit the Big Island!
