Reminiscent of old Hawaii, a lovely immaculate Hawaiian style plantation home awaits you and your family. Bask in the magnificent views of the ocean from your shaded sweeping lanai or stroll through the serene gardens of tropical flora and fauna that awaits. The birds sing, the trees dance in the breeze, the sound of not so distant surf lulls you. Perched amidst the historical Great Kuakini Wall, this home offers you a connection to the past with the comforts of modern island living. This home can be yours; divided by an upstairs living area and a fully self contained downstairs living area. Perfect for extended families and friends. The upstairs is a cool serene escape with a wrap around lanai that invites you to spectacular sunsets while enjoying your cocktails. At night, dining is truly an enchanting experience as you overlook your own private tropical oasis. There are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, full bathroom and flat screen TV. When you awake each morning, your own private sitting area on the lanai invites you to the first day's coffee. There are two other bedrooms each with twin beds (that can be converted to king beds), and a second full bathroom. On warmer nights, ceiling fans throughout the home provide a cool environment as do the many windows that invite in the trade winds. The kitchen is superbly stocked with all your dining and cooking needs. Enjoy a spacious living room for entertainment or relaxing. The downstairs living area is perfect for your extended family. A lovely living room invites your eyes out to your garden retreat and patio and a full kitchen provides all you need to cook and dine in. Spend quiet evenings on your garden patio. There is one bedroom with a queen bed and a full bathroom.
Enjoy your island catch or Kawaihae steak grilling to perfection on a traditional lava rock barbecue. The entire home is WiFi enabled and readily can keep you in touch with the rest of the world while on vacation. A washer and dryer helps you keep up with your laundry needs. All the comforts of home await you!
We have finally been able to keep 'one foot in the sand' after many years of living abroad and on the Mainland.
It is our hope that very soon we can get all feet back in the sand and retire here permanently. In the meantime, we invite you into our home. Find the true Hawaii here...in Laaloa Plantation Beach House... and the 'mana' that surrounds it.

We have been coming back to Kona for years to reconnect with family, our culture and cultural sites, and to enjoy the diverse landscape of the island. While we love the forests of Panaewa on the Hilo side, the picturesque waterfalls of the Hamakua Coast, sleepy Waimea Town, the cliffs of Waipio Valley, historical Hawi, restful and new Waikoloa, all roads have lead back to Kona. In many ways it has changed a lot...and then in other ways...not at all.
This home is great for family get togethers...because of the surroundings and proximity to so many attractions, there is a lot to do with many choices that will appease everyone.
Excellent location, views of the ocean, beautiful home with all the amenities needed right there on site. We enjoyed our stay and expect to be back again next year. Especially like the split level that offered additional privacy when needed and the garage was a big bonus.
Eight of us (six adults, 2 children (ages 11 and 10)) stayed for five nights and were very pleased with the house. The wrap-around lanai was great for lounging around and the breeze was very pleasant. The rooms were comfortable. We cooked all meals at the house and the kitchen was well equipped. The property was very clean. The property description was accurate and owners were very responsive to emails/text. A kid-friendly beach was less than a 10 minute walk and Ali'i Drive was a nice route for an early morning run. We were concerned with no air conditioning but the ceiling fans and ocean breeze kept everything reasonably cool. We had a fabulous stay and indeed found the property ideal for a family gathering. Highly recommend. For activities, we went to the beach every day. We also did a snorkel trip, a luau at the Royal Kona Resort, a manta ray night snorkel, and just walking around the various shore access points.
What a wonderful time we had. And this home just accentuated the experience. Spacious, Clean, and Comfortable what more could you ask! If offers several social settings by providing both s huge lanai as well as s screened in gazebo. It's prociminith to the grocery stores makes it easy to dine in when you wish.
But the best part: you are just a two minute walk to the beach!
The house looked perfect for a group of six - three generations, with two adults in their 70s, two in their 50s, and two teens. We weren't disappointed - it was perfect! We rented just the upstairs, and it was plenty spacious for six. The home is on a quiet street, just a short walk from White Sands Beach, and a slightly longer walk to Kahalu'u Bay. The house had everything we had hoped to find; excellent kitchen, comfortable couches and beds, large lanai, freshly refurbished gazebo. We spent a lot of time on the lanai and in the gazebo, eating meals, relaxing with drinks, and even sleeping outside (wonderful, with the sounds of the local birds!). The Kona area was warmer than normal during our stay (days in the 90s), so everyone enjoyed the proximity to the water. We spent a lot of time cooling off at White Sands and snorkeling at Kahalu'u. It was a convenient distance to shopping at Keauhou and Kailua, and great snorkeling locations like Kealakekua Bay and Pu'uhonua o Honaunau. The home owners were very considerate and prompt, and all of their transactions were conducted with a warm, courteous, "Island-style" vibe. Our sole regret is that we didn't stay here twice as long... we'll fix that during our next visit!
We so enjoyed your beautiful home during our family vacation at Christmas time. It was perfect for all three generations and more than met all our needs in spending family time together in a spacious, comfortable setting (especially relaxing and enjoying evening meals on the lanai). The gorgeous Christmas tree you provided was especially welcoming. Thank you for your flexibility in accommodating our young ones. We loved the proximity to beaches and had fun on many day trips. We would definitely recommend your home to both family and friends in the future!
We had a ten people family reunion right after Christmas and found this home to be perfect for us. This home accommodated all of us very well: grandparents, children, and grandchildren. It was well stocked with everything we needed and the extras--BBQ and hot tub added to our stay there. Our evening ritual was watching the sunset over the ocean and then enjoying dinner on the spacious wrap-around deck!
La'aloa Plantation House is located right off of Ali'i Drive and a short six minute walk to famous White Sands Beach Park. A twenty minute walk or 3 minute drive south is Kahalu'u Beach Park notable for superb surfing and snorkeling. Excellent for families. leisure activities/tours, dining, and shopping all within a five minute drive. The home is a mecca unto itself with lush Hawaiian flora and fauna.
