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.

Truly Home Away Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay with Kelly and James. Who won't choose this cozy cute place to celebrate the special 25th anniversary? A great ocean and airport view, a romantic rosy sunset view, a comfortably short distance to famous white sand beaches, a convenient location both to the airport and downtown, and a great family hosting us! This is the place you want to come back to year after year! If you want to experience a true aloha lifestyle, this is the house where you should be!

spectacular sunset

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week here! It was exactly what were hoping for and was the perfect place to finish our Hawaii-trip.

The house was lovely and we enjoyed spending time relaxing on the lanai, very private and peaceful.

Beautiful Place to be ...

  • 5 of 5

We only stood for 4 nights at this beautiful property in Kona but we really loved it.

The view from the lanai in the evening was indescribably nice. And we found new friends in all the small and cute gecko´s :-) It was perfectly equipped and with so much love for details.

Unfortunately we didn´t met Kelly personally but if we come back to Big Island anytime we definately try to stay at this house. Please keep it the way it is - PERFEKT.

we stayed for 5 nights and found it a great location. off the plane, got the rental car, 1st light up the hill to the house. easy to get into kona or the harbor. go to the north and you are at waikola and kohala quickly. Kelly met us at the house and gave us some info, also left pineapple,bananas, coffee and chips for us to enjoy. very thoughtful. the house has a full kitchen, lots of pans, also things like salad dressing,mustard in frig. living room and large lanai very confortable. definatley would return. jim and marsha ventura ca
