Both of us grew up in mountain towns but now live in Seattle, WA. We split our free time between San Juan Island and Kona and enjoy scuba, running and pretty much all outdoor activities.
Jim Purdy purchased this house in 2008
We looked at over 60 homes and when we found this we knew immediately we had found the perfect spot. It is very private as it backs up to undeveloped real estate and you wake up to amazing song birds and views as far as you can see. What we love most is you are only minutes from town yet enjoy total privacy in a setting that feels like a resort.
16 foot sliding door creates that indoor/outdoor feeling and the perfect elevation of 450 feet means you almost always have a warm kona breeze flowing through the house. You can enjoy the amazing sunset every night by the pool with a Mai Tai and appetizers on the lanai. We almost always have fresh fish on the barbecue for dinner.
We have rented hotel rooms, condos, and private homes in Kona over the years and so far love this one the best. Clean, comfortable, & well-maintained, very convenient location (beach is right down the hill, town is a short drive away) in a safe & quiet neighborhood, this was a great home base from which to roam around the island. Very private, nicely landscaped, with panoramic, unobstructed ocean & coastline views and wonderful breezes-one of the reasons we come to Hawaii every year. The owner & property manager were very helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. The only improvement we would have liked is at least 1 extra TV in one of the bedrooms (who comes to Hawaii & watches TV? we do-it gets dark here early!) We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to any of our friends!
The home is very well equipped with everything you would need for a great vacation. We especially enjoyed the pool and lanai where we had our morning coffee. The home is located in a very quiet area and we really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and the ocean view. Jim was very helpful in confirming our reservation and Connie kept in touch with us to make sure we had a pleasant stay. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends.
I took my mom, and two 21 year old's. Drinking coffee on the lanai in the morning was the best. This house truly has the best view on the island. We listened to soft music, floated in the pool, and watched the days go by. I am staying for 2 weeks next time. The owners have thought of every thing. Perfection is in the details, and these people attend to every detail. One week is not enough!! By the way, I have never left a review in my life, but I want the owners to know how much I appreciated everything!

This house is wonderful. There was plenty of room, the view of the sunsets & sunrises were amazing. Wonderful to sip your coffee on the lanai while watching the sunrise, and it's close to everything you need to have a fantastic time.
Shopping, beaches, watching the cruise ships come in and leave, enjoying Kona and it's surroundings.
We made the complete loop around Kona except 25 miles. The pictures you see online are exactly how the house is. Very clean and homey feeling as soon as you walk through the door. The swimming pool is just the right size to enjoy :)
Connie the property manager is wonderful :) If you're looking for a place to stay with family or friends, this is definitely it.
We will definately stay here again if we get the opportunity to go back to Hawaii.
Traveled to kona with another couple and a family member and had the most wonderful time at this beautiful home!!
-The View!: panoramic ocean views and spectacular sunsets.
-The kitchen: BEST stocked kitchen we have ever had in a vacation rental! It made cooking and entertaining so much fun!! Knives were sharp, a great selection of serveware for fun meal presentation, TONS of kitchen towels and cutting boards, and a bunch of Tupperware and plastic/foil wrap!! Sigh... I was in heaven! BIG thank you to the owners of doing such an amazing job stocking up your spacious kitchen!
-The outdoor space: we loved playing in the pool(we left a 9foot unicorn pool float for the next vacationers to enjoy!) :) , the dining space was a great size and we enjoyed very meal outside, the grass area for bocce ball and lawn games, and the AMAZING fruit trees! We enjoyed two perfectly ripe mangos off the tree and several limes that were a great addition to some homemade salsa and guacamole we whipped up.
-THE AIRCONDITIONER: we only used it at night but it was a LIFESAVER!!! I've spent many nights on the island baking in my sleep, so it was a wonderful and luxurious change to get some incredible sleep in our cool room.
-the sound system: the generous and thoughtful owners left their iPad for us to easily use the Sonos System! It was wonderful to not have to fumble around trying to sync our phones with the system! Loved listening to jack Johnson and bob Marley while floating around the pool drinking Pog Mimosas! :)
-the guest bathroom: we shared the guest bathroom with 1other family member who stayed in the twin bedroom, and it was spacious enough that we never felt crowed with 3 people sharing the bathroom. I was a little nervous sharing a bathroom, but the large counter space and separate toilet area made it a non-issue, The owners supplied us with tons of towels and water pressure was fab.
The only "negative" (and this was only a very small issue) was that our room (the yellow room with the queen sized bed) was a little on the small size so there wasn't a dresser for us to unpack into. There was a larger sized nightstand which helped, but it would have been nice to have a dresser. That being said, this was a TINY thing that probably only bothered me. :) we would DEFINITELY stay again!! BEAUTIFUL house and so well stocked that it felt like home!
Can't wait to come back to this oasis next year!
Thank you for sharing your home!!
Located in a lovely neighborhood on a beautiful Hawaiian hillside this home is a little piece of heaven. Well maintained grounds landscaped with palm trees, multicolored hibiscus, bougainvillea, bird of paradise, and lime trees surround this tropical escape. A shaded lanai and pool provide stunning views of the Kona coast all in a very private setting. An outdoor sound system makes pool time even more relaxing. The light filled living area offers views of passing cruise ships, sailboats, and parasailing through a long wall of sliding glass doors. Food is easily passed from the kitchen to the outdoor eating area through a sliding window in the large well equipped kitchen. A spacious master bed and bath allow early morning views of bright tropical birds in the garden area. All the comforts of home are found in this little piece of paradise. Sunset is stunning as the sea is turned to shimmering liquid gold. The energy of the property is soul rejuvenating. It is our favorite place to relax, unwind and leave the world behind.
As for particulars the property description was accurate and the property was very clean and well maintained. Customer service was top notch and I absolutely would recommend the property to others and have done so. Restaurants, shopping, and beaches are all within 10 minutes. Don't miss Holy Donuts! They are to die for. We look forward to returning soon.
Waypoint Properties presents Lani Kai at Alii Heights which sits just above Kailua-Kona and offers 180 degree view of the bluest ocean you will ever see. Enjoy your view from a very private lanai which includes a salt water pool with both shaded and sun drenched lanai areas. Friends have named it the 'little resort' they don't want to leave.
