Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

This resort-like ocean view 5 Bedroom 3 bath home with swimming pool, waterfalls, stream and outdoor gas firepit is ideally located on a quiet cul-de-sac in Kailua-Kona just minutes from the beach, Kailua-Kona and Keauhou. It is Eco-Friendly with full solar electricity and water heating.

From the moment you walk through the sculptured gate, into the private, tropically landscaped pool and hot tub area, the sound of the stream and waterfalls floods your senses. Stepping through the double front doors, the indoor/outdoor floor plan says “rest and relaxation”. Immediately you are drawn through the opened bi-fold doors onto the large covered lanai, and the ocean view captures your attention.

This home is perfect for family vacations with its six living and entertaining areas:

In addition to the pool and Jacuzzi in the gated front yard, on the main level you will find the living room and sitting room area, and a fully equipped kitchen with all the cooking, serving and tableware that you could ever want, along with the appliances you would expect, and some that just make life a little more fun – home made ice cream anyone? A great feature of the home is the very large, covered lanai with its living and dining areas where you can watch the famous Kona sunsets, breaching whales in the winter, and para-sailers all year long. The house is close enough to the water that you can hear large surf in the early morning (along with the delighted surfers' yells), and will lull you to sleep at night. Also on the main level is the romantic and spacious Master Bedroom with hand-carved Indonesian furnishings including a four post Queen size bed, flat screen TV, with Blu-Ray DVD player, skylight, two closets (one is walk-in) and a newly remodeled en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and another skylight. As well, there are two additional bedrooms (one with a Queen size bed, the other with two Twin beds and a lofted twin bed futon sleeping area) and second newly remodeled bathroom with bathtub/shower.

Downstairs is a fourth bedroom with Queen bed. The fifth air-conditioned bedroom doubles as a large game and family room with flat screen TV, high-top game table and pull out Queen size hide-a-bed (the mattress is a very comfortable 10” thick – combination coil mattress and inflatable mattress – inflates in just 30 seconds!). This family room also has a sliding glass door with access to the back yard lawn area. The lower level also has the third newly remodeled bath and a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

Ceiling fans in every bedroom and living area help carry the already cooling breezes from the ocean. To provide additional cooling when needed, each bedroom comes equipped with an oscillating raised fan. A wall-mounted air conditioning unit is in the downstairs family room.

About Kona Coast Vacations - SL

Aloha and welcome to the Big Island. We are thankful to Hawaii and its peoples for allowing us to work and play on this great island.

Kona Coast Vacations manages over 170 condos, homes and estates along the leeward (dry and sunny) side of the Big Island ( this island is named Hawaii, same name as the State). We are located right in Kailua Kona which is about 10 minutes south of the KOA (Kona) international airport. Most people include Kailua Kona, Keauhou, Kahaluu, and Holualoa, under the umbrella of the name Kona. We also have team members living near the resort area ( about 25 minutes north of the airport) which include Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, Hali'i Kai, Waikoloa Beach Resort (near the coast), Waikoloa Village (up mountain, about 15 minutes from the coast), etc.

Our team of inspectors check the property before your arrival, after you depart, and we inspect the cleaners. If something is amiss, please let us know immediately on arrival and we will address your concerns ASAP. We are open seven days a week to assist guests and owners. We offer a concierge service, we have maps and recommendations on our web site and are here to answer your questions.

We were voted the "Best Vacation Rental Agency" for 2015 and 2016- Best of Hawai'i - Lei Niho Palaoa Awards. We credit these great ratings to our reservations, maintenance and inspection team. Whether you stay with us or with another host, we hope you enjoy the Big Island of Hawaii and experience the Aloha Spirit.

Aloha and Mahalo

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This house is an absolute dream vacation home. After walking into the front gate I heard the trickling of the water fall and a sense of calm came over me. The kitchen and living room are very open and extend into the large outdoor patio with an incredible view of the ocean. During one of my stays I even saw a whale out in the distance. Mornings in the home are wonderful because after waking up to the lovely signing of the birds I enjoyed my cup of coffee in the hot tub or in the hammock out on the lanai. The location was great and we were very close to the highway as well as just a short drive down to Alii drive. We would recommend this place to our friends vacationing on the island. "

Reviewer Comments:

We held a family get together with our adult children and friends. This house was a great place to have as home base, especially for family meals and just hanging out. I had wanted to be right on the beach, but came to appreciate the easy access to the highway, plus 10 minute drive to KTA. The large lanai were very nice for morning Pilates, watching the sunset, and watching the fireworks across Kona on New Years Eve. As a Hawaiian style home most of the rooms were naturally cooled and we were entertained by the geckos that wander thru. We really valued that the home had pretty much every thing we wished for (coolers, snorkeling and beach gear, plenty of beach towels, binoculars, books and games, etc). Heck, it even had a massage chair which was great after getting off the long flight from the mainland. The pool was nice for relaxing when we didn't quite feel like going to the beach just yet. We had the opportunity to meet the owners (Kathy and Bob) and they are very nice people. David was our Kona Coast Vacations concierge and hooked us up for snorkeling at Captain Cook, swimming with the dolphins, a luau, and pulled off some magic when we decided at the last minute to go night snorkeling with the manta rays.

Reviewer Comments:

I have rented vacation rentals for many years on all islands in Hawaii and around the world. This, by far, was the most relaxing , well equipped, easily accessible and spacious home we've ever stayed in. There were 7 of us including 2 children (2 & 6) Not once did we feel like there wasn't enough room. Everything needed for a great vacation was provided. The view from the lanai was exceptional. It was a great spot for the kids to run around on. The pool was perfect. The spa was small but adequate. Although the kitchen was small (can't have too many cooks in the kitchen anyway) it was stocked w/ everything needed. The only thing I would change would be a different coffee maker(there was no heating element under the stainless carafe). I'd also include an additional thermos type coffee carafe. After all, who can drink just one cup of that delicious Kona Coffee? All the toys needed for the pool and beach were provided as well as beach towels. What else can I say. This house was fabulous. If I didn't already have a second home, this would be the one I'd want.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was large enough for our party of 6 (3 kids, 3 adults)--plenty of room and the kids enjoyed the pool. Kitchen was small and in need of some updated utensils and sink/cabinets/walls could use some TLC. Bedrooms were all comfortable. Management was excellent to work with. No easy way to get to and from the house if someone has limited mobility--rock feature over water makes that challenging. Would have been nice to know about that ahead of time.

Reviewer Comments:

My mother, four boys, and my husband and myself decided to go to Kona for a vacation. Hotels would have been cramped, so we decided to rent a house. We were so happy we did! The experience was a truly authentic way of island life! Close to the beaches and main highway on the island made it convenient! The pool in the front yard is the perfect size to cool off in the heat or a night swim. The open Lanai was perfect for meals with a beautiful view of the ocean. We loved the colorful wild birds in the yard and welcoming geckos! The bedrooms are beautiful with comfortable beds and extra fans to help move the ocean breeze throughout the room! Highly recommend Kona Coast Vacations to help with your vacation! They were friendly, helped book excursions (Manta ray snorkel is a must) and made the experience that much better. Mahalo to David, Michelle and Amy for all your help!
