About the property

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Full Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2-8)

Nestled in a sought after "gated community" you will find our charming Villa By The Sea overlooking Kailua Bay of Kona. This property is considered to be in the 'favored zone' due to the perfect elevation, climate and proximity to town & local attractions.

The ocean view from the living room, kitchen and lanai is simply mesmerizing, with front row seats to watch sea side activities of Kona town and cruise ships gliding by. The sun pours in through skylights and vaulted ceilings with high-reaching windows offering a sense of openness. Wood floors throughout show off the quality furnishings, including a large antique leather top desk located where you can quietly organize your time.

The spacious kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining. The bedrooms will wow you with their openness to beauty. Two “full” bathrooms allows for stress-free mornings. A queen hide a bed is available for additional guests.

You will love the space in the master bedroom which has a “King Size” bed with a walk in closet , flat screen TV and gracious bathroom. It's private lanai opens to tropical flowers and view of the water feature from your bedside. Each of the bedroom suites are enhanced with furnishings and decor to captivate a mood of relaxation, tranquility and comfort. Central A/C is available for a reasonable fee. A barbecue is provided should you choose a more casual atmosphere.

Minutes from downtown Kailua-Kona, close to all amenities, public pool and beaches, the villa is tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac high in the Malulani development to take advantage of air flow from cool cross breezes. The perfect place for weekly or monthly stays with family or friends, or a romantic get away for a couple.

For the beach goers, we are stocked with snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach blankets, tennis supplies, coolers and picnic equipment.

The Malulani area has paved walkways and underground services (no wires to disturb your views). Entry gate has motorized gate opener.

Truly a vacation “destination” you will long remember. We want your vacation to be a memorable experience; one that will have you falling in love with Hawaii, with Kona, and with our Villa By The Sea!

We provide our personal list of activities and restaurants.

Lovely ocean view and the luxury of privacy and space. High speed internet, and free long distance calling anywhere in North America is included. We also provide our personal updated list for our favourite activities and restaurants. Central A/C is available for a fee of $17.00 per night

Beautiful well situated home in a gated community

  • 5 of 5

The home is remarkably well equipped. The furnishings are very nice and the decorations made us feel a part of the island. The Kitchen has everything needed and more.The front porch has great seating with a wonderful view of the ocean. The rear patio is comfortable and is furnished for barbecuing and outside dining. The back area of the home is a veritable Hawaiian garden great for relaxing and visiting with family.

We enjoyed the home and the warmest Aloha feelings extended by the owners.

Restful Garden Villa with View

  • 5 of 5

We spent over three weeks in the villa and enjoyed every moment. The house is lovely with all amenities, an elevated view of Kailua Kona and has a nice breeze and cool garden to enjoy at any time of day. The kitchen is very well provided and we had Christmas dinner at the house. Why go out? There is a closet full of towels and linens and everything for the beach in the garage. Couldn't have asked for more. Shannon is very responsive and caring and we appreciated her friendly emails during our stay. Mahalo nui!

Private location in gated community.

  • 5 of 5

What more could we ask for?Just lovely well decorated and well cared for home, very comfortable, beautiful views, colourful landscaping and private back yard off the kitchen. We loved waking to the birds singing every morning, just adds to the lovely ambiance. Well equipped kitchen allowed for us to create wonderful romantic meals which we enjoyed eating while watching sunset from the lanai. Great selection of snorkelling gear, bodyboards and beach going things, and if you’re in shape there are 2 bikes to do hill workouts on ;)

We didn't want to leave the lovely atmosphere at Villa By the Sea.  We were taken by the ocean views. We appreciated that the home was so clean and well maintained.  Everything was wonderful.

"Villa by the Sea" priceless vacation find.

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed w/the photos & description of this property when we view it on VBRO. We were doubly impressed when we rented and finally saw this excellent home. The pictures didn't do justice to the actual ambiance and comfort of the "villa". We've sublet condos before but Shannon has made her rental a true home away from home. " Villa by the Sea"is very tastefully furnished, boasting a closet filled w/clean quality linens, and a fully equipped kitchen that is a joy to cook in.

Both bedrooms are spacious and the accompanying baths are clean and roomy as well. Note, double sink & walk-in shower in the master bath. The twin lanais offer peaceful places to read, dine meditate, or just plain chill. The garage had bikes we could use plus a good supply of beach paraphernalia.

Finally, like the perfect hosts away from home Shannon has supplied her guest w/inciteful information on dining out, favorite beaches and fun places to visit on the island.The fact that she was available by text or phone gave us an added sence of security. We can't praise this property enough, we were so comfortable there. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others looking for a lovely rental

whilst in Kona. Incidentally, the place was spotless.

Conveniently located, excellent view and private too

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had the most enjoyable week in this home. We travel to Kona once or twice a year. This home is located on the hill right above Kona Town and it was so convenient to all of the attractions and shopping. My main requirement was met: I could see the ocean from the kitchen and living room. I thought the bed in the Master Bedroom was positioned on the wrong wall, until I woke up the next morning and saw the sun glinting off the beautiful tropical garden in the back yard. Pinch me, we're in Hawaii!

The house is very well stocked with appliances, beach toys and towels, as others reported. While we used only the master bedroom, this house does offer great privacy if you wanted to have another couple in the second bedroom. The size of the home was similar to a condo, but while the surrounding yard was not large, it gave you the perfect buffer of privacy.

The only thing lacking was a clubhouse with pool and spa. I never found one if it did exist. However, this home was such a short drive to the ocean, we just drove to our favorite snorkel and kayaking spots instead.
