Overview

Kona Coast House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

ALOHA AND WELCOME TO OUR PIECE OF PARADISE!

Hale Luana (House to relax and idle away the hours) is located 3 miles above Kailua Kona and overlooks Kailua Bay and Kailua town. Maka Nui Tui ('Tui' as we like to refer to it) is our 3+ acre property ideally located 1100 feet above sea level containing Hale Luana along with the owners main residence. Tui is private, quiet, convenient, and most relaxing. Surrounded by tropical plants, flowers, and fruit. The fruit is yours for the picking when available. You enter through iron gates and drive up the palm tree lined driveway passing the main house to find Hale Luana.

Hale Luana will be a perfect retreat from the daily sightseeing, beaching, shopping, and numerous other activities available on our wonderful island of Hawaii. Tropical breezes maintain a perfect temperature day and night. No need for air conditioning, but ceiling fans are in all rooms if you feel the need.

Now that you've completed your long trip to the islands, you can relax in your most comfortable, hawaiian decor Hale Luana. Sip on a glass of wine or tropical drink as you watch the sunset from your private lanai and also from the infinity pool. Marvel at the spectacular view of Kailua Bay and as the sun sets, delight in the stars above and twinkling lights of quaint Kailua town below.

Awake in the morning to the sounds of the local birds and rustling tropical leaves. Enjoy your first cup of Kona coffee on your lanai before embarking on the adventures before you. Whether it be sightseeing, swimming, snorkeling, shopping, golfing, or any of the many activities available, or just hanging at the pool. Hale Luana is so very convenient to everything to see or do on the big island. Most are within a 10 to 20 minute drive.

We've tried to prepare Hale Luana for you're pleasure and comfort. We are positive, your vacation here will be one of the most memorable you've experienced. Please contact us by email if you have any questions. We look forward to your visit.

Mahalo and Aloha,

Ray and Barb

About Barb Poston

Ray and I met in 1960 on Oahu, where he was a Marine stationed at Kaneohe MCAS and I was attending Kailua HS, as my father was also a Marine. We eventually married and moved to Virginia, where Ray is from originally. We always wanted to return to Hawaii and did, in 1985, and fell in love with Kona. Well, we bought a home, sold it in 2005 and built on Maka Nui Tui(loosely translated ('WAY TOO MUCH view'). Shortly after building our main house we completed Hale Luana. We wanted to share our happiness with as many folks as possible. What a wonderful place to live and sooo convenient to everything. We hope you can visit with us and realize the true feeling of living in paradise. Mahalo, Ray & Barb

Gorgeous, quiet, relaxing, private paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property and we'd return in a heartbeat. The unit has two bedrooms with big showers, a nice living room / dining area, outdoor table, and grill. Infinity pool is amazing and views are stunning. Very close to Kona, so you get seclusion and incredible vantage point, and yet can be down in town (by car) in 7 or 8 minutes.

Impressive 180 degree ocean views, privacy, and security

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable visit and did not want to leave. This second story caseta has everything needed for a great vacation. It is secluded, yet close to shopping and restaurants in Kona. We're already planning our next visit.

Most relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The property and infinity pool was stunning! The accommodations were clean, comfortable and everything we needed in a "home away from home". Comfy beds, beautiful walk in showers, and a full kitchen complete with all we needed. The property was amazingly quiet which allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment. We enjoyed every meal outside! No complaints whatsoever!!

Too short a stay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more gracious and personable hosts than Barb and Ray, and they were very accommodating and informative. Their rental was impeccably clean,very well furnished and had a beautiful ocean view from the deck. We lacked for nothing. Though somewhat close in proximity to their lovely home, the rental felt very private and peaceful. It's location was perfect; close (a few minutes by car) to the downtown hub, yet far enough away that you felt removed and relaxed from the downtown "hubbub." Unfortunately, we had a family emergency which prevented us from staying the full week, and Barb and Ray were very gracious re our abrupt change of plans. We know we would have totally enjoyed our week-long stay.

Nalani ( The Heavens )

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely amazing with extreme privacy yet still close to downtown. Barb and Ray were incredibly friendly and made us feel at ease the entire stay. They are the best hosts we've ever experienced. The views were unbelievable and the climate at night was perfect. The rental was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The fresh fruit from their garden was better than imagined. The complete family enjoyed the resident turkeys and other abundant wildlife. A big mahalo goes out to Barb and Ray for a wonderful experience. We will be back!!

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in mid February for one week. The description of the property was very accurate. The suite was very nice and comfortable. It was also very clean (and well built with nice finishing!). We stayed with our two kids (young adults) and found the suite very spacious. The location was serene and quiet, and yet a short drive to town (a car is a must). We prepared the majority of our meals at the condo and found the kitchen well equipped. We enjoyed our relaxing dinners on the lanai with a view of the ocean. We enjoyed the island and went swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, hiking, shopping, and sightseeing. The owners were very accommodating and ensured we had everything we needed. We appreciated the coffee, fruit, bread, etc. available to us the first morning. We would definitely considering staying at this property again.

Notes:
The pool will be yours to use exclusively because the owners rarely use it and would rather you be free to enjoy at your leisure from 9 am to 6 pm. Also, the owners are only on Island a portion of the year so you'll have complete privacy of this almost 4 acre estate. Limited beach equipment for your use as well as a cooler. Enjoy your first morning cup of Kona coffee along with toast, tropical jam, and fruit from the property, when available.
