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 Kona Coast

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.

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.)

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(30 traveler reviews)

Beautiful pool and outdoor area with full kitchen.
average rating of 4.8 based on 30 reviews

Spacious, lovely accommodations, perfect for our 2 families.

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who needs a larger space. There are 2 suites in addition to the main house, and even an outdoor kitchen in the breezeway. The pool was a big hit with our kids. We especially enjoyed the lovely lanai for breakfasts. There are beach items to borrow as well well, including chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and sand toys.

Great vacation rental, especially for large groups

  • 4 of 5

This property is the perfect place if you are looking for privacy. Our family of 10 spent 12 glorious days here and loved everything it had to offer. Great location, very quiet and close to a few beaches including a short drive to the best snorkling on the island! Lots of fruit trees including Noni trees. The juice from the Noni cleared up my daughters eczema in two days and was great on sunburns! The two suites were perfect to separate the families and offer privacy. The large suite had a queen bed, pullout couch, twin bed and crib! Lots of room for everyone. The pool really is the focus of this location and we spent many hours enjoying it. Kitchen was well stocked but could use more knives and a few more plastic glasses. There were lots of towels and beach toys and coolers. Even had beach shoes for the rocky beach! The bathtub in the large suite is in rough shape but functions. Overall a great place and Peter answered all our question promptly! Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Well stocked family home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travel each January to the big island to avoid the PNW winters weather for a few weeks. Off the course of numerous trips we have stayed at all sorts of vacation homes.

We were very satisfied with this home.

Pros: Great outdoor kitchen area, near the pool. We ate and hung out in this area most of the time if we were home.

Plenty of space. With 3 large bedrooms and 4.5 baths there was plenty of room for our group of 10.

Well stocked. Beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach toys for the kids. We didn't need to buy a thing for the beach. Huge plus for us.

Kitchen was also stocked. Lots of spices, hot sauce, cooking basics.

HD TV with lots of channels. No one admits that they want to watch a little tv with the weather so nice but we were able to catch a few NBA games and some movies.

Lastly Peter the owner is "Johnny on the spot". If we had a question or a need he was available within a few minutes in the phone and came by to help when needed. Great to have him as an asset.

Cons: Be prepared that the 4th bedroom is not private, but on a plus

side the bed is comfortable.

Overall very nice unit. We would rent here again.

Amazing home / great time in Kona!

  • 5 of 5

A+ stay! This home is perfectly located away from traffic and still close enough to walk to the Magic Sands beach. We will stay again. Peter was very responsive and accommodating. We rented a boat and explored Captain Cook's bay with snorkeling and dolphin watching. We also spent 2 days at the most beautiful beach in Kona (I forget the name, but 2 exits past the airport) and did the night Manta Ray dive / snorkel. We don't have great recommendations for dinners because we mostly ate at the home on the deck overlooking the ocean. We had 6 adults and 3 kids and it was perfect for us. Stay here!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there over Christmas and New Years with 6 adults and 3 small children. First time on the island and the house suited us well. Great location - a short drive south of Kona and other markets, a 5-10 minute walk to White Sands beach. The house is off a private, gated drive which adds to privacy, peace and quiet. Surrounded by green views, all we heard was birds. Slight view of the ocean from the lanai.

Living room and kitchen area were large and comfortable. Master suite was also incredible with large bathroom. We spent most of the time around the pool, with a nice outdoor eating area and outdoor kitchen were we stored drinks and food for grilling. Great pool and trees/landscaping all around. There is also a bathroom in adjacent to that outdoor area with a nice shower.

Also supplied were pool and beach toys, apple TV which saved the day for some netflix for the kids, wifi, air conditioning units, a 'pack n play' and a crib, top notch appliances, fold out sofas, plenty of linens and towels, etc.

Some downsides. The spare room in the main house, that we converted to a 4th bedroom with a queen, isn't as desirable. It's directly across from the front entrance and has a curtain for a door. The wifi is housed here and our guest complained a bit about a loud buzzing noise. The guest suites, which are on the other side of the house, are great for small families, but they are on the second floor with a tile, outdoor staircase, something to keep in mind if you have little ones (one of the toddlers in our group had a nasty spill). Also the bathrooms in those suites aren't as nice, particularly the tubs, with ratty shower curtains, plastic bath tubs, and only one stopper that we had to share between the two. Also, signage advised not to use the refrigerators in those suites to save energy as a group, which I can understand, but takes away the appeal a bit as a stand-alone suite to escape with kids. The pool was a bit chilly, colder than the ocean, as it's in the shade all day and isn't heated. And maybe we are city-slickers, but there were a fair amount of dead cockroaches about, and we saw some rodents running about. I guess that's part of being in what felt like the countryside.

Despite those gripes I still gave it 5 stars and definitely recommend it. Probably the best rental house I've stayed in. The owner was attentive, quick on email, eager to help. And, again, great house in a great location.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. The location was great, a short walk to the beach or a short drive into town. We had 8 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of room for all of us. We loved being as we said ( in the jungle) very private and surrounded by nature. The pool was a hit with the kids. Peter was great with what ever questions we had Peter answered them right away and was always helpful. We were sorry to leave. Thank you again Peter for your hospitality. Aloha

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.
