Homes Over Kona:  Property Description

***Don't forget to view our "video" and get a bird's eye view of beautiful Homes Over Kona! Scroll to the end of the overview photos.***

Enjoy resort living on hillside slopes at a perfect elevation. Each family in their OWN home! Aromatic tropical breezes, spring-like temperatures, and birds singing in this sub-climate are to be sure to tickle your senses. Not too hot, not too cold, Homes Over Kona are located centrally in the historic, quaint, artsy coffee town above Kona called Holualoa. Only 10-15 min. away, Kona’s shoreline beaches, downtown, and neighboring Captain Cook Town are all very conveniently located.

Homes Over Kona happily fits three generations on the same property without the dramas of being under one roof. Perfect for a close family vacation without being too close! This listing is for all 4 homes and 2 acres of private serenity. Sleeps 22 people in 12 beds, and accommodates 10 more in futons or sofa beds ($30 per person extra per night).

Each building is newly built (2013) and furnished modern-tropical, with an Asian-Hawaiian flair. Infinity Edge Pool with Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River & 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa. All water play in the upper pool is viewed conveniently from both lanais as well as the playroom which is furnished with a large flat HDTV with internet and a restroom for convenience. With the perfect Hawaiian breeze no air conditioning needed -- extra fans provided just in case.

The pools are all solar heated and designed to feel as if you are sitting in natural Hawaiian waters. Both pools boast deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and giant lava beds to lay and relax on. The Waterfall Lagoon has a 15 foot waterfall drop that trickles and streams down.

The gardens are abundant with walking paths full of fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Yes, you can even pick and make your own lei. Majestic Monkey Pod trees canopy over the property and provide perfect shade for reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock. Fruit trees are everywhere and you are welcome to pick what you can eat (season allowing). Fruits on the property include plum, serinam cherries, guava, lychee, mangosteen, rambutan, mango, papaya, star fruit, pomegranate, avocados, coffee, citris, and our secret miracle berry. Guests will also receive a bag of our local Kona coffee that is grown, picked and roasted right here in Holualoa.

Our property is the perfect intimate wedding destination. Low event fees and deposits. 7 night stay required unless sandwiched between other reservations or last minute. Inquire!

Homes Over Kona is a unique property designed to keep you in tune with the aloha spirit of Hawaii. We want to share our air, our fauna, our wildlife and welcome you to Homes Over Kona.


The largest of the units is the Grandview Hale.  4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 comfortably, however up to 4 futons could be set up in the living area (additional fee).

The Grandview is designed with exquisite taste with a focus on Japanese design with local elements of Hawaii. You enter through the 'genkan', a beautifully designed Japanese entry used for the removal of shoes and quiet space prior to entering the main areas. Take a few steps up to the living room or in the opposite direction, step down into the kitchen. From the kitchen you then take a few steps back up into the living room to complete the full circle. This design was inspired by a famous Japanese architect, Tomoe Sugiura.

The living room is grand with a showy 22' media wall and gigantic 70' flat screen HDTV for theater style viewing. TV offers 800 Cable channels including high definition and sports package as well as internet service introducing Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, etc. Complimentary Netflix allows a generous variety of movies. Eucalyptus solid hardwood flooring, ultra-comfortable leather sofas, and high ceilings add to the grandiose living space. A genuine wood koa table centers the formal dining area. Seating up to 8, this dining area is located to the rear of the living room with tall view windows. Large windows found on every wall of this main room. Expansive 8’ sliding glass doors on both sides offer tropical breezes, country views, and a feeling of openness connecting you to the beauties of Hawaii.

The kitchen is without a doubt the center of attention to this home. Curvy custom granite tops represent the flowing hot red magma, walls are tiled with true lava pavers, and floors show true hawaiian river pebbles to the mix of visual delight. Frameless, modern cabinetry design is sleek with automatic features that open the upper doors with a touch of a button. Stainless steel appliances include a double oven, 4 door refrigerator/freezer, built-in microwave, and dishwasher. Top pro 36' Thermador induction cooktop with a telescopic downdraft vent allowing for the most efficient and clean cooking available. The 45' pro sink makes prepping a breeze. A second bar sink placed perfectly for prepping offers a perfect position for the assistance chef. Those who love to cook will appreciate all of these fantastic features. The island granite top is literally a full slab of exotic genuine red granite and sits 5 on the lower portion and another on the higher deck. A separate 42' high bar counter seats an additional 4 persons and has an internet connected HDTV for watching television or 'You Tubing' your favorite recipe. You'll find a complete set of cookware, dishes, and utensils, to complement the host of time-saving appliances: blender, coffeemaker, juicer, rice maker, electric grill, and ice cream maker (to name a few). Even if you love our kitchen, we also provide a BBQ on the patio so you can watch our fabulous sunsets turn to dusk.

The Master Bedroom (king) opens on to the upper lanai via a sliding door offering a grand view over the pool and much of the property offering a quiet place to relax. Also a flat screen TV is available in the master. The connecting master bathroom boasts an open air shower and deep Jacuzzi jet tub sunken floor level like a Japanese Ofuro. The bathing and shower area have large windows to compliment Ofuro in nature, however privacy is enabled with bamboo blinds. Floating cabinets, his & her sinks, private restroom with sliding door, real wood countertops, and pebble laid floors are all components of the fabulous Japanese design.

A second bedroom also opens up to the upper lanai with the same grand view. It has a queen bed with 2 additional windows over looking the center lanai and kitchen area. The third bedroom, also with a queen bed, is fashioned in hot pink and zebra pattern,…perfect for girls or anyone with such a fashionable flair. The fourth bedroom painted in blue has twin bunk beds (converted to queen - summer 2017) and reserved for kids,…or at least the young at heart. Each bedroom sleeps 2 persons comfortably.

The hallway bathroom has double sinks located on separate walls opposite each other and divided from the bathing and restroom area so that bathing individuals can have their privacy as others are getting ready for the day. Let your days drift away in the luxurious jacuzzi jetted deep bath with granite surround and lava tiles.

Upon return from a day at the beach, there is direct access through the main gate that leads to an outdoor hot shower for rinsing off. Over a few step stones and you will find yourself on a large deck and playroom furnished with sofas, chairs and loungers to relax as others enjoy these gorgeous waters.

Other amenities include a large laundry washer and dryer, beach towels, extra pillows and linens. You can enjoy complimentary high speed wireless internet for all of your electronics. Cable TV is offered in 4 separate rooms. The Sports Package is available from the Media Wall in the Living Room, however internet TV is also installed on each for movies, youtube, news, sports, etc. A sports gym only 10 minutes away offers day or short stay passes with full access to their facility. However, there is also a single bench with weights for the quick workout right here on the upper lanai deck.

About Cindy Morrow

These homes were designed by the owners who fell in love with the land and built the homes to represent Hawaii with minimal disturbance to the 2 acres it sits on. The owners careers are in the art, design and event businesses and these attributes are made evident in the homes offered.

The colors, themes, and landscaping to the homes compliment the nature which abounds us. Black and red for lava. Green and browns for nature and deep blues represent our oceans. Genuine stone and woods are used to finish and furnish these homes.

The entertainment areas are just that. The owners specifically designed each area to entertain your senses. TV's are large and lay flat against the walls. Spaces are open to enhance family communication and scenic viewing pleasure.

The owners also have a love for cooking and this is evident in the design of the kitchens (especially with focus on the Grandview Hale). All kitchens are fitted with genuine granite countertops, real wood cabinets, and a true focus on making cooking a convenient experience.

Adventure is what brought these owners to the Big Island and perfection is what made them settle in the town above Kona, Holualoa. The Big Island has the best of everything. Almost every climate is attainable here ranging from snow capped mountain tops to tropical rain forests and hot sandy beaches. The owners love diving, and it doesn't get better than this anywhere else in the islands of Hawaii. Hiking too, is a favorite, and these owners have explored many. They have left a suggestion book with details so that you can find children friendly beaches and trails as well as some of the more challenging ones.

Cindy Morrow purchased this house in 2005

Luxury all the way!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best stay ever! Very affordable accommodations for large groups! My family said "I ruined future vacations for them"! The houses, the gardens and the pools are beautiful and made us feel like we were at a Resort! Everything we need was there and then some! The only downfall is that you don't want to leave the property and you don't need to, this property is Paradise!!!

Perfect place for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire property for our family of 18 (and 2 small children). We gathered at the main house for meals and enjoyed the pool every day. Kitchen was well stocked with the necessary supplies. The property is conveniently located within 15-20 minutes to all the local attractions in Kona.

Great property and great location

  • 5 of 5

A large family group (13 of us) stayed on the property over Christmas 2017. Each family had their own place yet the big house was perfect for everyone to get together. The pool area was great for kids of all ages and the kitchen was outstanding.

There was no AC in the units but this was generally not an issue as things cooled off at nights. There were a couple of days where it was hot for the afternoon naps but by in large the lack of AC was not a problem.

The location was close to both Kona and the south island. A great location to explore the island.

Enjoy resort living on hillside slopes at a perfect elevation. Aromatic tropical breezes, spring-like temperatures, and birds singing in this sub-climate are to be sure to tickle your senses. Not too hot, not too cold, Homes Over Kona are located centrally in the historic, quaint, artsy coffee town above Kona called Holualoa. Perfect for a quiet cup of coffee and morning stroll. Only 10 min. away, you will enjoy Kona’s shoreline beaches with every water sport imaginable, downtown shopping or pier fishing, neighboring Captain Cook Town, or kayaking with the Dolphins at Kealakekua Bay. You can enjoy every direction very conveniently within a matter of minutes.

This particular island is famed for the ocean diving and snorkeling along with all the ocean activities you can imagine. White, black, or even green sand beaches can be found here. The only active volcano and endless number of glorious hiking trails await you including the famed Waipio Valley and even a quickie hike just a short drive away. During certain times of the year, you may even experience snow on the caps of Mauna Kea as you capture unforgettable sunsets and stargaze the most glorious night skies imaginable. These are the skies we share with some of the famed observatories available for tours. Only this island can offer such variety in such a compact way. Lucky you, our property is right in the middle of it all.
