This beautifully restored oceanfront home has all the charm of yesteryear with the added conveniences and sustainability of today. Offered as a vacation rental for the first time in 2013, the view and location are spectacular. In 2014, The Guardian newspaper listed it as one of the Top Beach Houses in the World. Completely renovated, this updated home has hardwood floors, granite countertops, koa cabinets, stainless steel appliances, air conditioning, iHome docking stations, Bose outdoor speakers with Bluetooth receiver (to pair your own devices and play music) with connections for Android and Apple products, iTouch pre-loaded with various Hawaiian music, wireless internet, full size washer/dryer, brand new California king bedroom set, luxurious bedding, hdtv plasma in great room and bedroom, gas bbq, Tiki Hut for afternoon drinks, teak lounges, etc etc. All lights are on dimmers so you can create your own environment and mood. There's even an indoor switch to light up the water at night to create your own private manta ray and eel show!
Ideally located overlooking Kahaluu Beach, you are within feet of the best snorkeling and surfing on the island. (If you do surf or stand up paddleboard, you can paddle straight out and be in the break in less than 5 minutes.) Dolphin sightings are quite common. During winter months, whales can be seen daily as they swim by.
Uniquely situated on a 9000 sq ft oceanfront lot, this home is a one-of-a-kind. You will experience complete privacy with expansive views up and down the coast. (We also own the property next door where you are free to pick papayas, bananas, etc. or just sit and watch the sunset.) While there is so much to do on the Big Island, you will have a difficult time pulling yourself away from your home and the incredible views and sounds of the ocean. You will find this special place to be relaxing, rejuvenating and inspiring.
Upon arrival you will be provided with tropical flower arrangements, kona coffee, fresh fruit, homemade banana bread, etc. For bookings exceeding 14 days, a 'freshen up' cleaning will be arranged midway through your stay at no additional charge.
Married over 20 years, we share the passion for travel and exploration. We own a business in California and Australia, and try to spend as much time as possible at this special home in Hawaii.

We have been blessed to have traveled to many parts of the world and have not found a property or location as special as this one. Extensive renovation has been done to make this home both luxurious and sustainable. Expansive panoramic views and the gentle sounds of the ocean create a very unique setting unmatched by anything we have seen.
You will not find a home as close to the water as this one! The sights and sounds of the ocean are mesmerizing. From the large lanai and deck you can watch surfers, paddle boarders and boogie boarders or jump in the water and experience some of the best snorkeling on the globe. Lighting up the water at night makes for a spectacular view.
We just left Kona Moana Hale yesterday. We had a great time in this beautiful and tastefully decorated home. We will surely miss the amazing sunsets, the sound of the waves and the cool ocean breeze. The home had everything we needed and more!
The fruits and goodies basket was a welcome treat. Everything you'll need for the beach (except sun screen!) has been provided - towels, chairs, snorkel sets and icebox.
It was also in the perfect location for everything we wanted to do - exploring the white, black and green sand beaches, snorkeling with the manta rays, visiting the volcanoes and eating out (but we enjoyed breakfast and dinner at the deck the most!). Even if the home was along a busy road, you can't hear any traffic noise because of the sounds of the crashing waves!
We also had a very pleasant experience dealing with Ron, the owner, when we were booking their home. He was very responsive over email, providing suggestions about the island and even calling us when we checked-in, to make sure we had everything we needed.
The Big Island is now our favorite of the Hawaiian islands and Kona Moana Hale was one of the reasons for that!
This property was a perfect fit for Barb and I. Being from Tucson, the ocean sounds were relaxing day and night. We cooked breakfast every morning, and either cooked on the grill or had pupus each night, being gone exploring the isle all day. People, look at this place if you are looking for a special time. Coffee on the lanai in the morning, and a glass of wine or a local beer in the evening, Good Times! Marc and Barb, Tucson
In a word – FANTASTIC! A beautiful romantic cottage right on the ocean (there is oceanfront and then there is this cottage almost on the ocean) – sitting in the living area looking out the window feels like you’re on a cruise ship. The cottage is tastefully decorated with high end appliances, with the comforts of home and ALL the amenities you can think of! And that LANAI – we spent mornings afternoons and evenings here. Oh, did I mention this cottage is IMMACULATE – I am an extremely fussy person and I was impressed!!
And, Ron (the owner), is so nice and easy to work with – thank you, thank you, thank you for a heavenly vacation!!
This was a return visit to this wonderful house for us which I believe says it all. It just doesn't get any better and Ron was awesome to deal with!
Perfect couple's retreat. We enjoyed it completely. The owners thought of every detail and comfort. Hope to return soon!
Beautiful house, perfect location. My husband and celebrated our 25th anniversary in Hawai'i. This was the best place to stay. We enjoyed the close proximity to restaurants and shopping, and the easy access for surfing and snorkeling. Hearing the waves crash the shore in the evening was our favorite. The home was clean, beautiful and well furnished. We lacked for nothing in our stay here.
Although located along a busy thoroughfare, once inside it is private and secluded with the bedroom and living areas open to the ocean. The home is nicely decorated and surprisingly well supplied with amenities to help you enjoy your stay. Clearly, the owners have put a lot of thought and planning into this vacation rental offering and it resulted in a 5-Star experience for us.
Ideally located overlooking Kahaluu Beach - the best surfing and snorkeling beach on the Big Island. Central to restaurants, shopping, golf, farmers markets, volcano, etc.
