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!

A beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The only way to describe both the home and the vacation is amazing! We planned a very busy 2 weeks on the Big Island and Hale Kumu Kai was the perfect place to return to each night to relax and rest up for the next day's adventures. The house was fully appointed with anything and everything we needed (some of which we didn't realize we needed until we were there). The kitchen was fully stocked, even with a crock pot so meals could be prepared while we were out exploring the island and ready when we returned with little fuss or time required. In addition, all of the gear we needed for enjoying island activities were also there - boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, Frisbees, etc. - it was all there. We did not have to purchase anything.

The house was very well decorated (did I mention it's beautiful) and SPOTLESS. The pictures don't do it justice. I'm not sure how they keep a house at the beach this clean but it was not like any "beach rental" property we've ever stayed in. I felt like I was walking into my own home each night. The neighborhood was very quiet and the neighbors friendly. They came out the day we arrived, introduced themselves, asked if we needed anything or had questions about the island, and offered restaurant suggestions and told us to let them know if we needed anything.

The location is perfect for accessing both Hilo or Kona - south to Hilo, north to Kona and in a residential area so it's not touristy and there is no traffic. It was a perfect home base for us to explore the entire island - north, south, east and west and we explored it all. From here we were able to visit Volcano National Park, the Green Sand Beach, the Black Sand beach, the Kona beaches, snorkel at 2 Step (HIGHLY recommend), explore HIlo and the Botanical Gardens, zoo, and waterfalls, check out the stargazing activities at Mauna Kea, and visit some of the coffee farms in the area. We even made bread at the historical society (they do this on Thursday mornings - check it out - it was a very fun activity for us and our kids).

Tina offered very quick responses to our questions & even accommodated us in another of their homes when I messed up our travel dates & discovered we were arriving before we were scheduled for this home (THANK YOU!!! - that would have been quite embarrassing). We would definitely request this home first if we go back to the Big Island & have already recommended it to a bunch of our friends. Thank you!!

Relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

My stay at this home was amazing! It had a excellent view from the balcony looking out towards the ocean. The amenities where especially nice. It was great to have a washer and dryer available at no extra cost. The location was very spacious and well kept. During my stay the family enjoyed snorkeling, visiting volcano's and a few national parks. I would certainly stay here again and recommend this property to my friends and family. The customer service was amazing.

Beautiful home wonderful views

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay there although the neighbors were rude we didn't let that ruin our trip. Overall way better than staying in a hotel. Though we probably won't stay there again because of the neighbors. The house was clean and welcoming. We enjoyed ourselves.

Absolutely perfect. It was nice after long days at the beach to come "home". We loved pebble beach and the tide pools there. We found really cool creatures. The house had everything we could ever need. We left a few things for the lucky people who stay next. We loved all the geckos! Thanks to the coffee shack we learned a little treat to bring more of them around. We will be back to your gorgeous home!

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!!
