Having visited the Big Island over fifty times, my wife and I like to think of ourselves
as experienced in what to do and where to stay. We’ve stayed at all the major resorts up and down the Kona Coast, as well as many vacation rentals throughout the island.
This house has many amazing features, but he best one is probably the location. We would venture to stay that this may be the best overall location on the entire island - close enough to walk into the hub of Kailua-Kona, yet peaceful, quiet, and secluded beyond words. It’s located in Kona Bay Estates, a gated community with 24-hour patrolled security. Check it out on Google Earth.
Sitting on the pool-deck with a glass of wine is escapism like no other - close enough to the ocean to feel the spray of waves crashing against the lava, daily pods of dolphins traversing the coastline, in-season humpback whales that sometimes breach so close that the sound is deafening. You even have your own personal lava “blowhole” next to the pool, putting on a show when the surf is up. Plus, the enjoyment of your own pool and spa makes one wonder why you’d ever want to leave the property.
Upon entering the home, you immediately know you’re somewhere unique, with a courtyard that is a tropical paradise of lush greenery, a lava waterfall and a walkway over koi ponds with fish to greet you on every arrival. Talk about good “chi”.
Moving on into the house you’ll find two huge master suites (one overlooking the Pacific), a homey koa-wood kitchen, large living and dining rooms. Most walls of the home fully retract, leaving one with the feeling of open-air living. Tradewinds off the ocean flow throughout the entire home.
The kitchen is fully equipped - we like to take a couple of hours to prepare a gourmet dinner, usually fresh fish on the barbecue, or prepare breakfast (with mimosas!) to enjoy before some suntanning and chilling out around the pool.
In a word, this place is special.
This beautiful home exceeds expectations and was a lovely place to stay in Kona. The pool and spa are well maintained and a real bonus. The opportunity to open the house to the ocean view and breezes really connected you to the feeling of Hawaii. We enjoyed time with both family and friends over the length of our stay and the house worked equally well for both types of groups. The location of the house was both near to Kona and secluded enough to believe the town was far away. On our last morning, a mother and baby Humpback entertained us during our last breakfast on the patio. A truly magical place!!
This home transports you to Paradise! We were here to celebrate our 50th anniversary, accompanied by our son and his wife. Our first impression was that we never wanted to leave this house! It is a home that you will never forget. The ocean views and the pool area are breathtaking. The open air design of the house and the furnishings are perfect. The proximity to town is a plus. Please take time to see the volcano and other special places. Also, there is a great many historical places to visit. The only problem is that you have to leave the house!
This home truly was a majestic home. It's a beautiful home located right on the Kona coast. It's in a private neighborhood yet conveniently located in proximity to tourist attractions, snorkeling, shopping, kayaking and many other activities to meet anyone's needs. If you walk out the back to the left about 10 houses, there is a small beach that's perfect for small children to play in. As you open the door you are greeted by a koi pond full of colorful happy fish. The house is full of open air as all the doors can be opened to create breezes throughout the home. The pool and jacuzzi overlook the beautiful ocean. The home in and of itself creates true serenity. I highly recommend this both to couples and families. It is really wonderful location.
We came to celebrate our 20th Anniversary with another couple, also celebrating their 20th Anniversary. We chose to eat in almost every night, because it was so relaxing to be at this home. It is in a great location, easy access, peaceful and relaxing and close to the town of Kona. I don't know if I will ever be fortunate to own a home as lovely as this. I would like to Thank the owners of this home for sharing their Beautiful home to us. It made our 20th Anniversary memorable and very special! I recommend this home to anyone considering a stay in Kona.
We absolutely loved our stay at Hawaiian Grass Shack and I've missed it every day since we had to leave. The best part is the back yard and pool overlooking the crashing waves. We spent most of our time outside enjoying the views and swimming in the warm pool. Indoors is pretty spectacular too. All of the doors and windows open up so being inside is almost like being outside. There's a great TV and sound system, a well-stocked kitchen, and a lovely dining room. There are two bedrooms, so the house would work well for two couples. The upstairs bedroom gets a great breeze all night and you can fall asleep listening to the ocean. The bed is pretty comfortable too. And the bathroom is luxurious with a tub and a huge shower. The location is great - very close to town but far enough that it feels private. We hope to return soon!
