About Peter Buehlow

I'm a semi-retired Canadian farmer and have been coming to the Big Island regularly since 2005. My family and I enjoy the break from winter and all the great activities so nearby.

My main hobby here is training and competing in triathlons but also enjoy the sightseeing activities, hiking, dining ,watersports,etc.

Peter Buehlow purchased this house in 2013

Why Peter Buehlow chose Kailua-Kona

We chose this property because it has the feel of living in the country (again, I'm a farmer) - the large lots, mango farm next door, no street lights, so quiet - yet is so close to all the city life - shopping, dining, beaches, movie theatre.

The homes along the ocean are nice (Alii Dr.) but the road is very busy all day, and quite loud.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique for it's country feel in an urban setting.

It also has the feel of a resort with the pool surrounded by the main house on one side and 2 guest suites on the other - perfect for 3-5 couples or extended families (keep the kids or in-laws in the guest suites to keep everyone happy.)

Lots of colourful, exotic plants and birds make it seem like a garden paradise.

Great house, great owner

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic peaceful retreat, perfect for our family of 8. The saltwater heated pool is lovely. Peter is very responsive. The house was also conveniently located. Tons of birdwatching from the deck.

The fourth bathroom is essentially a pool bath and shouldn’t be depended on for the fourth bedroom’s bath (it’s outside and across the lanai). Master bath has a lovely jetted tub and a walk-in shower.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Tons of fun - the kids loved the pool and pool toys, the view was beautiful, and the AC was a perk. Close to town and restaurants... definitely recommend!

Great location, peaceful but close to in town actvities!

  • 4 of 5

Peter's home was perfect for our family trip. There was plenty of room so that we were not on top of each other. The location was beautiful and quiet. We enjoyed the pool both day and night. However we were very close to town, beaches restaurants and shopping when needed. We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening sunsets on the lanai. I would suggest some place to hang your clothes for those who are staying in the den/bedroom. Also some of the furniture in the main house living room need attention. There are stains on the couch and small rips on the leather chairs. Also outside chair cushions need to be replaced. This did not affect our stay but would make this beautiful home even more welcoming.

Mahalo, Peter

Amazing house for a large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 3 weeks at this property. The private pool was a luxury because we were able to jump in at any time. Each room had it's own AC unit with remote, and as someone who is a wimp when it comes to heat, this was perfect for us. Some family members were able to turn off AC and open windows in their rooms, while I enjoyed the AC in the main house. This house provided lots of privacy with the two suites, but also a wonderful space for gathering together (poolside, lanai, living room). Lots of parking, gated community, extremely responsive home owner, and a beautiful view from the lanai. Hope we can come back again soon!!

Home is located only 500 yards (450 metres) from Alii dr. in a quiet gated community. Although located centrally in Kona, it feels like you're in the country - very private. Homes and resorts on Alii which is where most are located, have a lot noise from traffic 24/7. Close to beaches, shopping, golf, deep sea fishing and a must is the volcanoes.
