Overview

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

About Kona Coast Vacations - SL

Aloha and welcome to the Big Island. We are thankful to Hawaii and its peoples for allowing us to work and play on this great island.

Kona Coast Vacations manages over 170 condos, homes and estates along the leeward (dry and sunny) side of the Big Island ( this island is named Hawaii, same name as the State). We are located right in Kailua Kona which is about 10 minutes south of the KOA (Kona) international airport. Most people include Kailua Kona, Keauhou, Kahaluu, and Holualoa, under the umbrella of the name Kona. We also have team members living near the resort area ( about 25 minutes north of the airport) which include Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, Hali'i Kai, Waikoloa Beach Resort (near the coast), Waikoloa Village (up mountain, about 15 minutes from the coast), etc.

Our team of inspectors check the property before your arrival, after you depart, and we inspect the cleaners. If something is amiss, please let us know immediately on arrival and we will address your concerns ASAP. We are open seven days a week to assist guests and owners. We offer a concierge service, we have maps and recommendations on our web site and are here to answer your questions.

Kona Coast Vacations has been rated excellent by Trip Advisor in 2013 and 2014, and it appears Trip Advisor only offers ratings now, and we are sitting at 4.5/5.0 based on all the reviews since 2009. We were voted the "Best Vacation Rental Agency" for 2015 and 2016- Best of Hawai'i - Lei Niho Palaoa Awards. We credit these great ratings to our reservations, maintenance and inspection team. Whether you stay with us or with another host, we hope you enjoy the Big Island of Hawaii and experience the Aloha Spirit. Please feel free to utilize our website, links and to engage Kona Concierge for booking any of your activities.

Aloha and Mahalo

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!

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.

It was absolutely fantastic. . .the house was better than the pictures and the kid pond out front with the waves breaking was stunning. . .as soon as we are empty nesters the Kona Bay rentals will be one of our annual pilgrimage destinations. . .the house location to all the "local' eateries was just an added bonus.

Reviewer Comments:

The house desperately needs A/C, bug screens, exterminator, deep cleaning and TLC. Pros: on the beach, lots of space inside. Cons: noise (construction next door, public beach in front, sports field behind), "gated community" with public beach access, hot (no A/C), full of bugs (vicious mosquitoes, roaches, silver fish, etc.), very dusty (sniff), failing appliances. The owners did not provide mosquito nets, not sure why they claim that.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your comments. We are very sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations. All of the appliances are high-end and were installed just a few years ago but in an ocean front property the ocean mist can reek havoc on the electronics at times. We take pride in having everything working and will of course have whatever the problem was repaired immediately. Re. the construction, We have been told that project will be completed in December and we are sorry you were bothered by it. Regarding the bugs, there is no avoiding mosquitos in Hawaii in any house with walls open to the ocean like ours. But we do for sure provide a net in the master around the bed - you can see it in the photos. We will look into why the nets were missing from the other rooms. The roaches you refer to do not live in the house and fly in from the palms where they live looking for food. The best way to keep them out is to not leave out food. We will alert our extermination company about the silverfish issue you reported. You came during the hottest month in Kona and unfortunately A/C will not work in a house with walls that open to the sea. Usually the trade winds blowing through are sufficient for most people. Sorry they were not cool enough for you. We will also review the cleaning procedures and your cleaning concerns with the cleaner. We are open 7 days a week and have a maintenance team dedicated to addressing any guest issues and would have been happy to have sent someone to address your concerns during your stay.Thanks again, and Aloha.
