Beautiful professionally decorated home that is perfect for a family or large group. At 2,000 square feet with a separate family room and living room plus a large back ocean-view patio, there is plenty of space to spread out. We are also about 1 block away from a large grassy park and kids playground area. Close to shopping, airport, water activities. Well maintained and loved, our home away from from home! Perfect for triathletes participating in annual Ironman competition. Situated perfectly in a quiet residential neighborhood, with unobstructed ocean views from every bedroom.

Sleeps 10-12 very comfortably with Cal King bed in Master BR, 2 twins in BR #2, one Queen in BR #3, 2 Queens in BR #4, plus a Queen size sleeper sofa.

We are an active family of four that enjoys traveling and outdoor activities. We love visiting Kona and partaking of all it has to offer. We really like the small town feel of Kona and easy going pace that Hawaii is famous for. Lots of volleyball for us as well as outrigger paddling, fishing, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, soccer...etc.
Jeff & Nikki Caufield purchased this house in 2009
We love the feel and pace of Kona. Not as urban as Oahu or Maui, so perfect for relaxing and still enjoying the best of Hawaii.
We are close to Keauhou Bay where snorkeling, outrigger paddling and volleyball can be found. Within 2 miles of downtown with lots of shopping and restaurants. Close to the airport. Perfect jumping off grounds for traveling around the Big Island.
If you want to have the most peaceful vacation, Kona Calm is the place. The view of the Pacific from the patio was my favorite perk. The house was clean and stocked with all the bedding and towels you might need. The kitchen had all the necessary tools. The 7 of us were felt right at home. Perched on a hillside and at the end of a street with open space next to it, I understood why it is called Kona Calm. Costco, Safeway, Walmart, and Target were all just minutes away. The owners were helpful and cooperative, and genuinely nice . When I come back to the "Big Island" , I will not hesitate to stay here again. Two thumbs up!!
We rented Kona Calm for a two week stay for 6 people at a busy time in Kona. This location gave us the convenience of a close location to town with a bit of distance to allow a chance to enjoy paradise while quietly watching the sunset over the ocean. The house was used as home base for many explorations. The owner's book of local spots they enjoy was particularly helpful. The neighbourhood was quiet and safe. The use of the coolers and chairs for the beach was great. The house was big enough so if anyone wanted some "alone time", this was easily achievable. The closeness to the Queen K highway made getting to town quick and reasonably easy. We would definitely recommend KONA CALM to anyone we know heading to The Big Island and would also stay again if we ever find our way back. Mahalo Jeff & Nikki!
We recently booked Kona Calm for a small mini family vacation (3 generations) and the house was absolutely perfect! To start, it has breathtaking views of the ocean from the back patio and 3 out of 4 of the bedrooms. It included all of the amenities of home but in Hawaii. You name it, it's got it. The owners even allowed us to rent their truck for a small fee for the entire week. It is the perfect vehicle for the island. We have vacationed a number of times on the Big Island and this is by far the most convenient and nicest place to stay for the price. If you are looking to explore Hawaii, make this area a "must visit" including this property. The owners were super nice and very easy to work with for booking and other information as needed. Mahalo!
We stayed at Kona Calm in February to escape the cold of the Canadian Prairies. We were delighted with our experience and would whole-heartedly recommend it to others.
Kona Calm is the perfect base for an active vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. If your group enjoys exploring and outings, and needs a comfortable and spacious home to which to return, this should be your choice. Located in a quiet neighborhood it is just a very short drive away from the Kona beaches, restaurants, supermarkets and airport. Indeed, being just a few blocks away from the main highway makes getting on the road to more distant destinations just that little bit easier.
With three teenagers we wanted a property with a little space; Kona Calm gave us the luxury of four separate bedrooms. However, 10 people could be accommodated comfortably in beds, 4 on the upper floor (master bedroom, and 2 twins) and 6 on the lower floor (2 queens in one room, 1 queen in the other). With a communal area on each of the floors, this might work well for two families staying together allowing each some extra privacy. The kitchen on the upper level is well-appointed, and the wireless internet worked seamlessly, even during intensive use by our teenagers.
There is a small, very basic patio at the back of the house, with table and chairs available stored in the garage. Families with young children should note that there is a drop-off with no barrier at the edge of the patio which would pose a hazard. Due to the slope of the land towards the ocean, the patio (and the bedroom windows at the back of the house) give beautiful views of the ocean. We watched the sunset, a cruise ship anchored in the harbor, and a whale frolicking just off shore. We were woken by birdcalls in the morning and spotted numerous birds including a flock of feral parrots. Our daughter loved the geckos, both green and pale pink versions, who come out to hunt insects at night.
The owners provide their own recommendation of places to go and we tried several of them, all excellent. We did lots of snorkeling, and every time spotted and even swam with sea turtles. As our first visit to the Island, and with only a week to spend, we feel we have only just started to discover this beautiful place and we hope to be back before long. Meanwhile, we agree that we have found both our new favorite hawaiian island and our new favorite place to stay.
We spent a week there and enjoyed both the island and the house that is nicely decorated, clean, spacious and filled with practically everything. The only item I could not find there was a meat thermometer :-) The listing info is accurate. Internet connection was good and easy to use.
You can see the ocean and mountains (and neighbor's bananas growing) sitting on the deck and listening birds. The place is quiet but we heard the Rt. 11 noise through the open window (not too loud).
It's possible to walk to downtown but you need a car to get to parks, beaches, shopping.
The owners are friendly. You can easy reach them by phone or email, and any reasonable issues or questions are resolved very fast. Also they've prepared a book with advices some of which we followed.
For coffee lovers we'd recommend to visit a coffee farm nearby (www.mountainthunder.com for details).
We truly enjoyed the quite neighborhood atmosphere of this property. It had fantastic accommodations and it is very close to the Kailua-Kona waterfront where we enjoyed most evenings strolling by the bay, taking in the sights, and relaxing in some of the local restaurants. The house is clean, comfortable, and has tons of amenities which saved us money and makes it much more convenient than having to eat out every meal or rent equipment at the beaches. This was our first time in Kona and I really enjoyed staying in this rental. I don't think I would do it any other way. I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends.
