Opihihale 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 loved it and can't wait to go back !!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for giving us the chance to rent your amazing house , not only is the location beautiful with the views of the ocean , but the beautiful black pebble beach at the bottom of the hill was great for snorkeling and seeing all kinds of beautiful fish . Habing all

The snorkels and masks and bogie boards at the house made it even more enjoyable because we didn't have to go out and buy them so thank you for having it well stocked :) 2 of our favorite things were the huge patio looking over the ocean with the gazebo and bbq and the convenience of all 3 bedrooms upstairs having their own private showers and bathrooms. Again thank you so much for this well prepared big beautiful house in a great location , we will Definitely be going back !

Gorgeous House on a hill

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at this house for half of our trip to Kona. This house is absolutely beautiful. The view of the sea is incredible We would sit on the deck and just look out at the view. The kitchen had any pot or utensil that you could possibly need. The house is very comfortable - from the plush couch to the bedrooms. We loved it.

The only caveat with the house is the OHana Room. I thought it would be a large comfortable rooms that looked a lot like the other bedrooms. But it was really a laundry room with a bed and futon in it. So that's why I took off one star.

But all in all I would do it again but with less people.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Sorry it wasn't a 5 star, but i understand. Unfortunately we created the ohana room to accommodate those large families with children. Large space with plenty of room for kiddos. Mahalo and safe travels!

Myself and family had wonderful time in very well equipped and spacious house! The landscape was so great with nice wonds from the sea.

It is quiet nice neighborhood but a litte far from supermarket...well it is part of real vacation.

We enjoyed snokeling across the honaunau which is one of best spot in Big Island!!

I will definite come back to the area fot my next vacation :)

Great Choice for Big Group

  • 4 of 5

This home is very comfortable and perfect for a large group. I very much appreciated having the 3 ensuite bedrooms and the well-stocked kitchen which helped save us much $$ in food expenses. The views are beautiful from the deck and the geckos are really cute. The location is ideal for the southern island activities which we enjoyed such as the hike to the Green Sand Beach and the Kilauea volcano. We also loved the proximity to the Coffee Shack diner, the Lillikoi cheesecake is dreamy!

A couple things to keep in mind are 1) no A/C which was a big issue for our group as we did not get the breeze at this time of year which we had expected from our other stays on different islands. This was due to the elevation and time of year we were told by the locals. And being from the Seattle area, we were not acclimatized to the heat we experienced. 2) The property is also not conducive to folks with ANY mobility issues as the hill it's located on is approximately a 25% grade and the entry access to the home is stairs up and down. Some of the mature members of our group would have preferred a neighborhood of more easy strolling-type walking opportunities. 3) The beach mentioned is beautiful but very powerful tides and, again, the pebbles are not conducive for folks with weak knees. 4) The city of Kona is a 40+ minute drive away so you spend a lot of time in a car.

This is our second time renting with VRBO and each time we've had a family group and this home is an excellent choice if you have multiple couples. The extra 4th room was also great for the kids to have their own space which in our case were 2 teenagers and 2 under 12. The snorkeling gear and beach chairs provided were much appreciated and we added to the snorkeling gear for future parties. This was also the case with the pantry/fridge which was graciously stocked with sugar, spices, condiments, etc. We also enjoyed the DVD collection and multiple TVs in the home.
