About Jeff & Nikki Caufield

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

Why Jeff & Nikki Caufield chose Kona Coast

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this beautiful house for a week. The location was great, safe neighborhood, the house was big, very clean and the owners couldn't have been better. Amazing communication while booking and we had an absolutely stress free arrival and weekly stay... it was a wonderful vacation.

I absolutely recommend this house A++

Kona Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful home in Kona! The house was perfect for the 6 of us that stayed there. The house had everything we needed and then some - thank you to Nikki and Jeff for sharing your beach accessories with us. We loved that the house was so centrally located on the West side of the island. We traveled up and down the Kona coastline, and loved coming back for lunch and/or a nap between activities! I loved that the house felt very private and quiet because it was at the end of the road. The yard and back patio were lovely and well cared for. I would highly recommend this home to family and friends who go to Kona. Thank you again for sharing your home with us!

Quiet, Clean, Central A/C, Stocked Kitchen, Great View!

  • 5 of 5

We rented three different houses during our 2-week stay on the Big Island and this was the perfect house for the first week of our visit! The central air conditioning and beautiful sunset views in the quiet suburban neighborhood were exactly what we needed! You're only 5 minutes from the major stores and downtown Kailua-Kona (which is noisy all hours of the night) so staying up here on the hill of the mountain is the best place to stay. We loved it! I would happily rent this place again and refer it to close friends. The kitchen was surprisingly well-stocked and very modern, the furniture is all very comfortable, the grill worked great every night. We really enjoyed watching the sunset over the ocean while grilling dinner and eating on the porch. Sunrise hit the breakfast table in the mornings. The beds are good. There are a family of finches living in the roof over the master bedroom, so they'll wake you up chirping in the morning. The view from the master bedroom is also lovely! We have fond memories of this house. Thank you!

Perfect home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as beautiful as the pictures in VRBO. We got really lucky when we stumbled on this great find while searching for a place to rent in Kailua-Kona. The owners weren't kidding when they said the house was centrally located-- Costco, Walmart, K-Mart, Target and Safeway all within miles of each other. The house itself was warm feeling. Felt like "home."

They provided bath towels, beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs, ice chests, boogie boards and snorkeling equipment. The list goes on!!!!!

Did I mention anything about the beds? Omigosh!! Every single family member had nothing but good things to say about the beds they slept on--even myself! I normally have back issues after a night's rest-- but not at Kona Calm! Each night was just as restful (if not more) than the previous night. That alone is enough reason for me to come back!

The landscape on the property was beautiful. Some evenings were spent at home just watching the sunsets in the back yard. Simply beautiful!

The check-in instructions were precise and thorough. Nikki didn't miss a beat---everything I thought of asking was already answered in the email that was sent--EVERYTHING!

Out stay here in Kona Calm put this year's vacation to the Big Island at the top!!

Thank you for the memorable time and for your hospitality!! Mahalo!!!!!

Everything about the house interior, exterior, location and proximity to everything can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend for your next Kailua-Kona trip. The house is located in an awesome community. The exterior of the house and landscaping is beautiful. The interior extremely clean makes you feel at home, has everything you could possibly need… Bath towels beach towels… Etc. Just show up with a change of clothes, there's a full size washer and dryer so no need to over pack. The garage has all the water toys you could need surfboards, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, umbrellas, kids toys.... even an OC1. Split level home…Upstairs has two bedrooms two bathrooms kitchen dining room and a small living /sitting area, downstairs has two bedrooms a bathroom and a family room....perfect house for multi family vacations. The back patio has a perfect View of Kailua Bay....perfect for evening sunsets, barbecues and just pure relaxing.
