Kona Palisades 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.

Lovely Property and Sunset

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely, clean and comfortable it had everything that we needed.

The view from the lanai is nice and it is the perfect place to sit and watch the sun set.

Kelly is a very good host and responded promptly to our emails.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at this property to anyone wanting to visit Hawaii.

Simply beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this property! The sunsets were the highlight of the evenings and the view could not have been any better! Having a cold drink on the lanai while watching the sunset in the quiet neighborhood was perfect. The house itself is very well kept and comfortable. Centrally located and far enough removed from town. Quick drive to the airport and to town.

The birds chirping in the morning were so relaxing! Palm trees swaying - it was the perfect Hawaii house!

We felt safe, welcomed and at home! Cannot wait to return and stay again! We could honestly live there year around! Thank you so much!

Another Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer vacation here and we once again had a great time! As before, Kelly and James were fantastic hosts. The house is cute and well maintained, is in a nice, quiet neighborhood; and we truly feel at home here. The location is fantastic; 10 minutes from the airport, 15 to both pristine beaches and downtown Kona, and 40 to Waimea. We enjoy having breakfasts and dinners on the lanai every day. In mid summer, the house can get a bit warm during the middle of the day, but mornings, evenings, and nighttime are perfect. We can't wait for our next vacation here. Mahalo!

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.
