Kona Ocean View is a deluxe, romantic vacation apartment. It is located in Sunset hills with a sweeping 180 degree view of the ocean from the terrace by the large heated salt pool.
The villa is very private and quiet, yet only five minutes from the all the activities, restaurants and shopping of Kailua village and five minutes from Kahalu'u snorkeling beach where green turtles and tropical fish abound.
Each room has a view, even from the shower. You will see the curvature of the earth, and a splendid sunset every night while you dine on the terrace. The cruise ships slide into the bay where they anchor for the day, and steam off at sunset. Superb quality, spectacular design and stunning decor best describe this elegant hideaway, perfectly suited for two couples or a family of six who want privacy.
Hawaii is a very large island and there are many activities, so plan your vacation for as long as you can, there is so much to see.

I am a former teacher/children's librarian and now am enjoying sharing this lovely location with many enjoyable people from around the world. Kona Ocean View has the most beautiful view and yet is five minutes to quaint Kailua village and the Kahaluu snorkel beach which is a tropical fish and Green turtle sanctuary. I volunteer as a Reef Teacher there and am a volunteer for the Whale Sanctuary, as well as enjoy many water activities. Come join me!

If you are interested in snorkeling and diving. My Fair Wind membership will allow you a 10 to 20% discount. I recommend it highly. I sail often to the Capt. Cook monument to snorkel and have also had the very rare opportunity to swim with Manta Ray's at night. This is one of the only places in the world that offer swimming with these amazing creatures. Many golf courses are in the vicinity, with ocean views, rare birds and wild goats.
Day trips to the Volcano, Waipio Valley, Zip lines, and many more famous beaches along the west coast are available to people who stay here. We have free covered parking, and free wireless internet and many amenities to make your stay comfortable and amazing.
We really enjoyed our escape from the cold Canadian north. My family, Charles,
Amber, and Ava were so impressed by my finding this place. It suited us
perfectly especially with the baby - mum never felt left out when we went
touring without her - in fact - we could hardly wait to get back! Our family get
together was a great success and we all hope to come back. Mahalo,
Our family of six, including my retired parents, stayed one week with Barbara. This was our second time using vrbo, so we don't have much to compare with. However, we have to agree with all the positive reviews. Truly exceeded our expectations. My nine year old asked if we can come back again next year!
We just finished our second stay at Barb's aan found it to be as perfect and deserving of 5-stars as our first visit in 2015 when we described it as "paradise found." Barb is an excellent host, immediately there if you need her but otherwise you wouldn't know she was just upstairs. The unit is very clean, well appointed, bright and airy. The deck is large and private and can't be beat for enjoying a peaceful morning coffee, afternoon lounging or supper from the BBQ while watching yet another amazing sunset. The infinity pool is clean and great for a swim or just floating along the edge watching all the sights in and around Kailua Bay and along the coast. During our visit we watched five cruise ship sail aways and although the whales had already left for this year they were clearly visible to enjoy during our Jan/Feb 2015 visit.
Having stayed at rentals along noisy, congested Ali'i Drive and further up the mountain where it can be cool/showery and the sights on the water too distant to enjoy, we found Barb's location to be ideal for us. About the only thing that breaks the tranquility are the birds in the trees. For anyone who likes too walk and enjoy nice views and the colours of Hawaii the Old Walua Road Trail is two blocks from Barb's. Try it once for a peaceful, shady morning walk and you will never go back to the noise and car fumes of Ali'i Drive.
We are already planning our dates for our next visit to Barb's and hoping to entice friends to join us and take advantage of the second unit that offers its own privacy and all the amenities.
Thanks Barb for for being such a gracious host! We loved our stay and will see you again
Hostess is delightful: helpful when needed otherwise invisible. Exceeded our expectations: quiet, private, clean, all amenties included, spotless, easy access to shopping, restaurants, huge pool for laps or lounging, amazing view
down to the harbor. Perfect for sunsets. Apartment was spacious with tropical setting. Private bedroom with kitchenette and bath a real plus for couples.
We totally enjoyed our stay during the Christmas holiday. We found Barbara's property to be very clean and convenient to everything. It was a great place to go back to after our travels each day....very comfortable and relaxing with awesome sunsets each evening. We look forward to returning in the future as it felt very homely. Thanks Barbara for waiting up so late for our arrival.
My husband and I along with our adult daughter and her partner stayed in this beautiful home with a gorgeous ocean view for a week in paradise. The location is great and the host is helpful and kind. Views from both bedrooms, the kitchen and the living room. High above the kona coast, nestled into a lush area, with a beautiful swimming pool leading out to the horizon, we were thrilled to return from our adventures every day. Dinners and breakfasts were made in the well stocked kitchen and enjoyed in the lanai poolside. Highly recommended, especially for two couples traveling together. Privacy and yet lovely shared space. A great find!
My family stayed 9 days at this property during our most recent trip to Kailua-Kona. This was far and away the nicest place at which we stayed on multiple visits to the Big Island. The unit is clean, spacious, well-equipped and has such a lovely view. We could watch whales while having morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. We enjoyed the property both inside and outside including the great pool. Not only is the property great but we had several chances to speak with Barbara and her husband who are lovely people. It is conveniently located to access the main tourist attractions of the Big Island and also offers excellent privacy. It is close to several excellent restaurants. There is a gas grill and we used it to grill fresh fish from the fish market. I would definitely come back to this property and would especially recommend it to friends and family.
Winter whale watching, Fish and turtle sanctuary at Kahaluu Beach , 5 min. away, a visit to Volcano National Park, Waipio Valley, New zip lines, Top of Mauna Kea, or the Place of Refuge, & a new Planitarium are all waiting for you
