Hawaii House Rental Photos and Description

Cute Little House: 2 Bedroom; 1 Bath; 15 Minutes From Town Beaches And Airport

This family-owned rental is a true home away from home where you can relax in peace while enjoying a spectacular ocean view. This family-friendly property was previously owned by famed television pioneer Deanna Barkley and is located on a dead end street in a residential neighborhood. The house sits at roughly 850 feet elevation making for cool nights following warm Hawaiian days.

Surrounded by bougainvillea, gardenia and coconut palms, this little home has a grassy front yard and a large lanai built for enjoying barbeque dinners and picturesque sunsets.

The upstairs rental area of the house has 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, updated kitchen and living space, a large lanai and a laundry/wash room downstairs. Enjoy sunbathing, a family BBQ dinner or passing around a Frisbee in the front yard. Or, take a short drive down to beautiful Wawaloli Beach and enjoy the sand and ocean.

This non-smoking vacation rental is managed by a family-owned cleaning company who charge no cleaning fees yet provide all the professional details! The home is stocked with all the items and every day amenities needed for your convenience and comfort.

The property managers live in the adjacent home so any emergent concerns can be addressed expeditiously.

About Kelly

Originally from the East Coast, I came to Hawaii in 2006 and never left. Now, I own my own cleaning company and am married with 3 children. I fell in love with the island the minute I stepped off the airplane and continue to be amazed by its beauty every day.

Kelly purchased this house in 2013

Why Kelly chose Hawaii

The opportunity to purchase this beautiful property in Kona arose upon the passing of famed TV executive Deanne Barkley - the previous owner. It only made sense for us to vacation rent and for me to take care of the home and its guests while my parents plan their future retirement to this property. The property reminds us of our quiet neighborhood on the East Coast where my parents still live.

What makes this house unique

This house is located at the end of a dead end street, which means no busy traffic and peaceful location. There are many coconut trees and tropical foliage around the property. We love the sounds of the birds and bees, making for a true Hawaiian experience. Lounge on the lanai during sunset for a relaxing picturesque moment. The property is less than 5 miles from the Kona Airport and from beautiful Wawaloli Beach.

Beautiful place, good location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kelly's place was fabulous. The location was excellent , the house spacious and well kept, the deck fantastic for dinner and sunset watching .

The place had everything right down to the small detail that one could need. Kelly provided breakfast food for us on the first day which was very appreciated .

The house would be very suitable for families with small children as at is on a dead end street.

Perfect for us!

  • 4 of 5

When we entered the home there was a lovely gift basket full of Hawaiian goodies, fresh fruit and coffee. We loved the large deck in the cool of the mornings with coffee, and in the evenings watching the sunset with a glass of wine. The beds were very comfortable, the home was clean, and obviously well cared for. We were geographically located close to all the activities we wanted to participate in, yet were able to feel as we were coming back home at the end of each days activities to our own peaceful, quiet sanctuary.

Spacious and bright house in a very natural setting and beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4 and the house was very spacious and well equipped for us to feel at home and have everything we needed for our stay (even had lots of books about Hawaii so you could pick up a few interesting facts while there). The best feature is the lanai, very beautiful outdoor space ideal to lounge, relax and take in the ocean view as well as have meals outside. We had an issue with the lock and were uncomfortable leaving the house unlocked but Kelly assured us that the neighbourhood was safe and it was ok until resolved. It is very safe, quiet and residential (so be prepared to drive a bit for any groceries, restaurants and really anywhere). We suggest having a GPS if you plan to come back home after dark in the evenings as the area gets dark. We normally vacation on Oahu in somewhat more city like setting where air-conditioning is sometimes welcome but there was definitely no need for it here, the house has lots of windows and is very airy and comfortable.

Thank you Kelly for sharing your beautiful house with us. We definitely recommend it.

Wonderful stay and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

It was pleasant stay at this ocean and sunset view house. Welcome gift of hawaiian snacks, fruits and juice made us happy after long flight. Everything looks clean and enjoyable even at home with DVD player, TV and Wifi. At the end of the trip, 2 hours before our flight back, we had car engine problem. Owner rescued us and droped us at airport. We really appreciate for their hospitality and kindness. We will definetely come back at this place again.

True Aloha Spirit

  • 5 of 5

Before we start, please let us say "thank you!!!" to Kelly and James! We really had another great anniversary vacation at their property! We stayed here last July and we had no doubt that we would have another blast here again and we surely did! Kelly and James were very as helpful (as they were last year) by providing us all the necessary information prior to our arrival including the new pictures from their lanai. The house was well maintained with some upgrades from last year such as two new beds in the second bed room, a good clothes hanging rod, a parasol for the lanai table, a fence along the entrance staircase, etc.. The front yard was prettier with more flowers, young fruit trees, and a pineapple plant. James even gave us their first pineapple, which was sweet and delicious! The location is unbeatable; 10 minutes from the airporort, 15 to both pristine beaches and downtown Kona, and 40 to Waimea. The gorgeous sunset from the lanai was totally unforgettable. We did have a minor inconvenience of the Internet failure, but they got a technician to work on it during the weekend to get it straight. Both Kelly and James treated us like Ohana and made sure that we were content and happy. This is a true aloha spirit. We will surely celebrate our anniversary here next July. Mahalo!

Their description of the property turned out to be spot on. Every thing was clean and comfortable. Well stocked with beach towels, linens etc. We didn't cook much but the kitchen had everything you would need. The view of the sunsets from the deck were stunning. The owners who are nearby were very helpful.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review of Moana Hoku! We're so happy you found the place comfortable and stocked well. We agree that the view from the lanai is awesome! Especially since our neighbor removed some trees. :) You were wonderful guests and we hope to have you back again!
