This property was just turned into a Vacation Rental in Aug. 2012. Unit is just over 1000 sq. feet with all floors in Travertine for a cool easy to maintain lifestyle. The kitchen cabinets, counters and refrigerator are brand new and the place was just painted and furnished from top to bottom.

About Jeff

We purchased this home in late 2011 as we fell in Love with The Big Island of Hawaii. After visiting all the Islands several times we decided it was finally time to add the home of our dreams on the Big Island. We just love Hawaii and look forward to spending as much time as possible in Kona. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Jeff purchased this house in 2011

Why Jeff chose Kailua-Kona

This property is a Gem. We looked at over 100 homes via online and in person. Our objective was to find a property that had amazing Ocean Views and looked like a BEACH HOUSE. This is hard to find. Most homes look pretty basic and don't have the Beachy Feel. I hope you know what I mean by this. Out of every property we looked at this was the only one that we made an offer on. Once we finally got it and made the changes to the property we realized that we found something special. Anytime we mention this house and start to describe it to the local people they stop me after about one sentence and say that they know this property and how lucky we are to have it:)

Now we are able to share this with our potential guests which is a great feeling.

What makes this house unique

There are not too many places in the World where you can sit out in front and watch bikers, runners have 2 Beaches less than 6 blocks in either direction. These Beaches are also amazing....Magic Sands is one of the best boogie boarding beach with it's beautiful waves and local flare and Kahaluu is know for it's reef and snorkel. In addition, the neighbors are amazing and offer some great Hospitality if you get to know them. There is never a dull moment at the Kona Blue Hale property!

The property is lovely.

  • 4 of 5

The 2 large bedrooms housed comfortable beds with attractive bedding. Regrettably the cleaning was not satisfactory. The dust under the beds indicated neglect for several weeks. We enjoyed the back garden and suggest a birfeeder with appropriate seed for cardinal and canaries. A small rust proof table and chairs could be stored under the overhang and brought out as needed. Overall we enjoyed our stay as we slept well in the quiet rooms. The sofa was a plus.

Amazing place to de-stress

  • 4 of 5

Roomy apartment with comfortable beds and lots of living space. Nice outdoor table and seating to eat meals outside. All basic accommodations provided, and quiet at night. Great location near nice beaches and far enough away from Kailua to be quiet and uncongested. Would love to stay there again. (next week, maybe??!!)

Great location - easy access to Kailua-Kona and excellent snorkelling beaches.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing 11 days at Kona Blue Hale. Easy walking to both Kahalu'u Beach Park and Magic Sands for terrific snorkeling and watching the surfers. Sunset viewing was best from one of the close Shoreline access points rather than the ground floor unit. Accommodation was certainly adequate and comfortable - with a little TLC, it would rate 5 stars. It was great to have beach chairs, boogie boards and towels available for use.

Just So You Know

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is really spacious and quite nice. But just so you know, there is no AC! (This is NOT mentioned in the About the Property section.) While this may not be an issue for some, the reality is that it was stuffy at night even with the provided fans running and windows open. We were surprised by this and had some uncomfortable nights.

The wifi was finicky--once taking 15 minutes to accept a connection, and you could not even sit on the front lanai and be connected while we were there. The owner had replied to one other email question but did not reply to an email about this issue.

Finally, just to be fair, to say this apartment has an "ocean view" is generous. When you are sitting on the lanai, or even standing for that matter, you have a pretty small slice of water visible through a break in the trees across the street.

There are many nice points about this property but knowing these things will avoid what someone once described as "anticipointment."

Very relaxing holiday!

  • 4 of 5

The four of us very much enjoyed the Kona Blue Hale and its proximity to two good beaches and the town. The apartment is very spacious, airy and clean. Thanks to Jeff for the great recommendations of beaches, restaurants and bike routes. Our last day was particularly special as the dolphins came to swim with us at 2-Steps Beach and we may not have returned there (after a failed first attempt), without the late checkout that Jeff allowed us, and Jeff's recommendation. Would definitely rent here again! - Cheryl (BC, Canada)

Owners were very friendly and helpful, house was very spacious and the location was great! Very close to great beach and just a few miles outside of the congestion of town which we enjoyed. Would book this property again!
