About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 8

This incredible home is secluded in a 24 hour guard gated oceanfront community, yet is close to all that Kona has to offer. It is located just a short walk from the classic old Hawaiian town of Kailua and the start/finish of the Ironman. Please note that there is a home in the final stages of being built in the lot next door.

In all of Kona, there are only around half a dozen homes that enjoy a setting on a sandy beach (all the rest have rocky shoreline). Kona Bay Bliss is one of these few special homes. Kona Bay Bliss recently went through an extensive remodel and upgrade. The home has four bedrooms including an incredible master suite with a private lanai and stunning ocean views, double slipper clawfoot tub, steam shower for two, office and workout room.

Enjoy a relaxing morning on our sandy beachfront lounge chairs (no need to pack up and go to the beach - you are already there), take a dip in the ocean, wash the salt off with our heated outdoor shower, fix a refreshing lunch in our covered outdoor BBQ kitchen and serve it to your friends at the swim up pool bar. For dinner, imagine cooking in our gourmet kitchen with Bosch appliances. No expense has been spared outfitting this kitchen for the gourmet chef in your party. Prepare your food on our granite counter tops, wash your dishes using our state of the art double drawer Fisher and Paykel dishwasher after rinsing them in the double bowl solid copper farmhouse sink.

All four bedrooms are furnished with quality furnishings and have their own private attached bathrooms with showers. Pick out a movie from our library of Blu-ray videos and watch it with your friends in our home theater on an 80 inch screen. Or if you prefer, record one of your favorite shows and watch it later using either on of the two TiVos you will find in the home. Can't find a movie in our extensive library of DVDs? No problem, just press the Netflix button on the smart remote and choose something from their vast library. Don't want to watch TV? No problem, pick out a book from our well stocked library and reading room. End your day with a color light show and soothing dip in our 8 person spa. No expense has been spared in preparing this home for you. This is truly one of the finest vacation rental homes in all of Hawaii.

This is a non-smoking no pets property. There are no exemptions to the 8 person maximum occupancy. There is a 5 night minimum/10 on Ironman and Christmas season. Hawaii Tax ID: 148-699-5456-01

Why Kona Coast Vacations - SL chose Kona Coast

We were attracted to the Big Island because of its diverse scenery and climates. We know of no other setting in all of Hawaii comparable to the lagoon setting we have here in Kona Bay Estates.

What makes this house unique

You just can't beat the sandy beachfront setting of Kona Bay Bliss!

Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

After a very long trip to get to this home, we were delighted when we arrived and discovered it met our expectations plus! Steps from the ocean with the soothing sound of waves and the scent of the sea rolling in, everyone wanted to change and rush out to the water! Our delight continued with the discovery of the immaculate pool, hot tub and outdoor shower. We settled in quickly, enjoying all the amenities this four bedroom home had to offer. The immense master suite on the third floor was enjoyed by the family with children in our party (the rest of us made good use of the ensuite laundry facilities) and other rooms with king and queen beds and private baths were occupied as well. Great privacy options! The kitchen was very well equipped and easy to use with an incredible

Ocean view as was the dining/living area. Even without air conditioning the house was always comfortable with the exception of some bugs that got in to bite as there are no screens.

Access to the beach is mere steps and the water is fabulous. The provision of chairs, towels, toys for the kids and even a cooler was amazing. We spent many happy hours snorkelling, swimming, checking out many tide pools and climbing the rocks. The beach was quiet and not overly busy at all times. The owners of the property were

Most accommodating in letting us stay a little longer as we had a late flight out - the only downside of this vacation was that we had to leave at all!

A wonderful reprieve from a long Canadian Winter

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely amazing. It was everything you see in the pictures and more! As soon as you open the main door from the garage you can SMELL the ocean, because you are actually THAT close.

The beach is just outside of the backyard and is ideal for young children. The tide pools are full of ocean creatures and its a lot of fun to explore the pools without going very far. You can actually snorkel right there and when the aid comes in especially, lots of new fish and creatures get brought into the tide pool. We were lucky enough to swim and snorkel with a sea turtle on one of our last nights there!

The property itself is amazing. There is a nice, cool pool and a warm hot tub on the main level and an outdoor shower with hot water. Perfect for washing off the sand and salt form the beach.

The kitchen and dining area has gorgeous views of the ocean. A favourite past time of ours was watching the waves come in at night and of course, a beautiful sunset.

The house had great amenities and was very well stocked with the basics, plus some extras. Although we brought our own, there were dish and laundry pods etc. There were tons of beach towels, towels and extra linens. The kitchen had great appliances, everything you can think of in terms of utensils and cookware and spices!

Important things to consider: The house is very spacious and can easily accommodate 8 people. We were a family of 5, with kids aged 2, 4 and a newborn. We also had a friend and our in laws with us. The layout of the house worked well for our party, but I can see how it would be an issue if you were a group of friends. The whole 3rd floor is the master suite, with exceptional ocean views and a massive bathroom. The other bedrooms are comfortable and have their own bathrooms, but no view of the ocean.

The other thing is that the property does not have AC. Not a problem since there are so MANY windows. However, the windows don't have any screens, so its a problem to always have them all open as bug do get in!

Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed this property and look forward to returning again. The rental company the managed it was very responsive and available. Everyone was extremely accommodating and helpful including the owner of the property, who allowed us to have a later check in as we had an evening flight.

The house is in a gated community, very safe. Close to costco, target, walmart and a shopping centre.

Absolute Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is everything you see in the pictures, and then some. We walked in wide-eyed and amazed at just how beautiful the home is..every aspect is amazing; the location, design, furnishings, views...everything is just fabulous. Location - minutes from Kona nightlife and daytime tourism activities yet tucked away in a secure community that made us feel so comfortable. Literally on the beach..walk out and swim / snorkel / play in a beautiful tidal area protected from the surf or sit on the porch and take in the views. One of our favorite features were the sliding glass wall panels in the main living / dining room as well as the master bedroom that opened the whole home up to the beach views and sounds. Laying in the master suite while being soothed with the ocean breeze and sound of the waves made it hard to get out and do anything else. But there is so much to do...Kona is the perfect Hawaii vacation spot. The only problem we ran into was that our kids immediately became enamored with this place and didn't want to go anywhere else! I can't wait to go back!!!

Reviewer Comments:

Disappointed that the construction and its noise beginning at 7 am was still going on for more than a year. Kitchen wasn't as well equipped as last time (sleeps 10 but cups for 4??) Had to spend $60 for supplies to make the printer work.

Reviewer Comments:

Our vacation to the Big Island was a great experience. The house is located in a prime location to downtown Kona (walking distance). The beach and natural pool right out the back door are GREAT. The Big Island doesn't have many great beaches so having one right outside your door is fantastic. We had a few minor problems in the house but maintenance was out right away and got them fixed. We VRBO often and this house was the best provisioned of ANY house we ever rented...coolers, cooking equipment, Tupperware, wine fridge, spices, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. Yes, there is construction going on next door, but the workers are very respectful and it will be done soon. I would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed and wonderful ten day stay with our children and grandchildren. The home was perfect - lots of space, clean and very well equipped and supplied. The beach and tide pools was perfect for the little ones. The property manager was very responsive to questions we had about a few small details. The dishwasher needs some updating and the mosquitos were a problem in the bedroom by the pool.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Thank you for staying at Kona Bay Bliss! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We just replaced the dishwasher in February of 2016 and are also working on installing a screen in the downstairs bedroom by the pool. Mahalo, Kona Coast Vacations
