Kona Coast House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, OHana Room that sleeps an additional 5 people

Ocean view, 2300 square feet of beautiful living space, located in Kona Paradise, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city and a great location for exploring the entire island. We no longer have a hot tub.

Three beautiful bedrooms, each with a queen bed and a full en suite bathroom attached. Two of the bedrooms have their own private lanais each with a bistro table and chairs, overlooking the brilliant blue Pacific Ocean.

There is also a huge lanai off the main living area where you can relax and enjoy the sunsets and the sound of the ocean!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in houses from Madrid and Brussels to Florida and Colorado and have never stayed in a better equipped home. There was not one thing we needed that wasn't there. We loved the location, far enough out to be away from everything but just a short beautiful drive in for groceries and Restaurants. The almost private black pebble beach at the bottom of the hill was our favorite hangout to watch the amazing sunsets. We had breakfast every morning out on the very large deck overlooking the ocean. Also enjoyed being able to grill a couple of times out on the deck.

We were more than pleased with our entire stay and will definitely return some day.

Rest and Relaxation Hawaiian style

  • 5 of 5

The beauty and serenity of our vacation stay was amazing. The house was tastefully decorated and very large to accommodate our family size. The beds were perfect, soft and our bedroom overlooked the ocean. Each bedroom upstairs offered it's own bathroom, which was very convenient! Downstairs also featured a half bathroom off the large kitchen. We loved hanging out on the lanai at sunset and watching the geckos chase their meals. The quietness of the neighborhood was great! As a family, we were not looking for the hustle and bustle of an island resort for a reason. This gorgeous house had all the amenities to fit our family members (sunscreen, beach towels, bug spray, pots, pans, snorkel gear and even boogie name it :)) . We were able to cook our meals at the house, which also included a gas grill for barbecuing (YUM!). Since there were eight of us, this saved us lots of $$. We loved every aspect of this house and wished we could have stayed longer! During our stay, we visited Volcano national park, an hour up the road and on the way stopped at Punalu'u bakery. We snorkeled at Kahalu'u beach park 30 minutes north and took a boat to snorkel off Captain Cook monument with Sea Quest. The people of the island were extremely friendly and greeted us Hawaiian style. We enjoyed every minute of family adventure and are grateful for the opportunity to share in such a magnificent home. We recommend this property to anyone looking for a fantastic view, comfortable house and a relaxing vacation! You will not be disappointed, I know we weren't!!

Fabulous Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent two glorious weeks at Hale Kumu Kai for the third year in a row, and already placed our reservation for the fall of 2016. There are too many positives to list, starting with the landscaping at the front of the property and fruit trees in the rear. The house easily accommodated our party of 7 adults along with our two young granddaughters. We had plenty of room to congregate without being overcrowded, and yet could find a quiet place if we needed some downtime. The granddaughters loved watching the geckos on the lanai each morning and in the evenings. The well stocked kitchen made meal preparation a breeze, and kudos to Tina for quickly replacing missing / broken cooking utensils. We love the location, making for easy day trips to Hilo, Volcano National Park, Kona and of course the beaches. One piece of advice for future renters, remember you are renting a private residence, if you break something please let the owner know so they can arrange for repairs or replacement. We were somewhat surprised to discover some of the cooking utensils were missing, and fortunately Tina had them immediately replaced.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Tina for allowing my family to stay in your beautiful home. Everything was perfect from day one. Your customer service first of all is out of this world. Anytime we had a question before our stay, you answered every time and were very helpful with info. As for the house, what can i say but WOW!!! Clean, modern, great view of ocean, completely stocked with everything from kitchen to cleaning supplies and beach gear stuff. The deck and bbq area is out of this world. Attention to detail is amazing. Had a chance to meet cleaning lady who is very friendly and curtious too. I had a big family there, and nobody felt cramped or bored. As for The Big Island, not one minute were we bored. Kona, Volcanoes National Park, Lava Hike, Marlin Fishing, Waipio Valley, Hilo, Rainbow and Akaka Falls, South Point, Green Sand Beach, Black Sand Beach, White Sands Beach, its all here.... I even swam alongside two turtles and was face to face with live flowing lava. The PERFECT house for a family. We will DEFINITELY stay here again in future. Once again, thank you so much Tina, you were 5 star from start to finish. Best house we've ever stayed in!!!! Mahalo, Tino.....

Happy visitors from Washington, Alaska, and California

  • 5 of 5

We were surprised and slightly disappointed to find out that the hot tub was removed upon our arrival, but even with this factor, the house exceeded our expectations. We vacation in Hawaii on a yearly basis, and 2 of our amateur chefs loved that the kitchen was stocked with everything we could have needed. We purchased so much that we did not use, but I assumed that we just added to the collection of what had been leftover by previous guests. We considered this our donations to the home. I have stayed in many houses before when everything was cleared out. We are so happy that Tina allowed other unused items to be left in the home, otherwise, good products just went to waste. We had 6 adults and a baby on our trip and it was comfortable for all. We never felt that we were on top on one another. The view from the deck was beautiful. The baby loved the geckos. He called them his new friend. Although it was an hour drive into Kona several days a week, we were always happy to return to such a comfortable home environment. This was one of the best house rental experiences I have ever had, and I am a frequent user of VRBO and HomeAway. Tina and her contact person were very responsive since the date of booking to the very last days of our vacation. All in our party loved this house and this will be our chosen home upon our return to the Big Island. Thank you again, Tina, for such a great experience.
