Kailua-Kona House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7


LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! 11.5 Miles South of Kona Airport. 2 miles to Magic Sands Beach, 3.5 Miles to Kailua Kona Village. In quiet Sea View Circle neighborhood.

Bright and welcoming. Mountain Breezes and Ocean Views! This place is designed for people who want to hear the birds sing and feel the soft trade winds breathe on their sun-kissed skin. For those who want to smell the sweetness of the plumeria's and delight in the exotic palms almost an arms reach from your lanai.

From serene sunsets to exciting live volcanic eruptions, the Big Island has it all and Kona Seaviews is ideally situated for all of your fun Kona adventures. Just 300 feet in elevation up from the best snorkel beach in Kona (Kahaluu) where sea turtles are often seen sunning themselves on the shore and 20 minutes to the most pristine golf course you can imagine, where the wild Peacocks and Nene birds are free to roam.

The Kona Seaviews are the best part of a newer Hawaiian home (built in 2003) situated in one of Kona's most authentic Hawaiian neighborhoods. Your ohana has it's own entrance and the only thing you share is the laundry room, with Dianne and I and only when we are able to leave the mainland and enjoy our piece of paradise.

Pick from the lime tree or a plumeria, and enjoy the GREAT weather; beautiful flowers; singing birds and all the peaceful views of the Pacific from the lanai.

This is a home you will want to return to year after year. Come and enjoy the lush, rich, peacefullness of Kona Seaviews. You will be glad you did.

Our vacation ohana offers three bedrooms, two baths, a fully equipped kitchen with dining area, an indoor living room with TV, wireless internet service, and laundry facilities. Relax and enjoy the peaceful ocean views while you have your breakfast or coffee on the huge lanai in the morning or with a glass of wine in the evening absorbing the beautiful Kona sunsets. Ceiling fans in each room allow for open windows and for you to awaken to the sound of singing birds.

Bring your swim suit and flip flops and your good to go. We have installed an outdoor shower to help you wash off the sand from your trips to the beach.

About Clyde Sebastian

We are Clyde and Dianne Sebastian, originally from Minnesota but met while we were both teaching school in Australia. We have four adult children and four granddaughters. We have been Texans since 1984. We discovered the Big Island when we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in 1999. We fell in love with Hawaii and eventually purchased our home in 2007. At this time we still spend most of our time on the mainland and thus our fully furnished home is available to you for vacation rental. Dianne has a rewarding career working with students who have dyslexia and Clyde has recently returned to coaching high school wrestling. This keeps us on the mainland for now.

Clyde Sebastian purchased this house in 2007

Why Clyde Sebastian chose Kona Coast

We purchased this home because the lanai across the front of the home gave us a true Hawaiian feeling. Being built in 2003 it is clean and fresh. You enter our home on the second level and as you enter you will already see the ocean through the patio doors out to the lanai. The ceramic tile floors eliminate any worn out carpet. The master has a king bed with a private full bath. The second bedroom also has a king bed which makes for private sleeping for two couples. The third bedroom has a single bed and a desk which provides a place for your laptop. The queen sofa is a hide-abed if needed. You will find you spend most of your time out on the lanai where we have three tables and nine chairs. Our pricing allows you to save money for a longer stay or to do the Manta night dive. You will be pleased with the climate, fresh air, and comfort of our home.

What makes this house unique

Affordability with a great location. Our pricing for a single couple is a great value and our location is perfect for exploring all the Big Island has to offer. We have additional beds for more guests for families and small groups and our pricing for the additional guests is reasonable. (Note: We may lock off the second bedroom if you are only a couple to reduce our cleaning costs.) Our home gives you a good perspective of what it would be like to actually live in Hawaii. We have a diverse neighborhood from snow birds to local Hawaiians. You may hear the hula classes down the street and drive by our neighbors who have two pet pigs. Watch for children when schools out and keep them safe. This is a neighbor hood where you hear kids play just like it use to be on the mainland. There is one neighbor who has an occasional outburst but if you’re out enjoying the Island you will likely never hear him. It becomes quite here after sunset as you will experience when you come and visit the authentic Hawaii experience here on Sea View Circle. Try it, and you will not be disappointed!

Very Comfortable Oasis From Home

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, spacious & clean. Big beautiful Lanai with gorgeous ocean view & sunsets! Home is as described. It really felt like home away from home. Clyde & Diane were quick to respond & easy to work with. Manta Ray Snorkel was fantastic! Overall a really great home base for exploring this Big Island!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed here for two weeks, and it was great! Lots of space, very clean and well supplied. We cooked most of our meals here and had everything we needed. Location worked out better than we expected....quick access to the highway so we could get everywhere more quickly than if we were right on Ali'i Drive. We had an ocean view, but were a few hundred feet up from the ocean, which made it much cooler.

This house is in a neighborhood, so there was neighborhood activity and noise, but we preferred that to the resort feel. Nice neighbors (and we even saw a neighbor's party complete with ukulele music and hula dancing!) There was some road/utility work going on during our stay, which was a little noisy, but the owner made sure we were aware of any potential inconveniences and we had no problems.

The owner, Clyde, was great and answered all our questions via email very promptly and had helpful advice for our trip. Would highly recommend this home and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I hear from our neighbors that the utility construction is almost complete which means future guests won't have to hear the construction noise.

Made my 50th Birthday celebration extra special!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! Clyde mentioned that the neighbors did a haunted house for Halloween and we got to experience it, what a treat. We even got to experience an impromptu Hawaiian music jam session that was a few houses away. What a great neighborhood!

The house had everything we needed. Coolers for packing a picnic at the beach, beach towels, beach mats, and a spare sun hat for our friend that forgot hers. The kitchen was well equipped and when I had friends come over for dinner I was able to entertain in style! When the week was drawing to a close and we saw the house was still available for a few more days, we were able to contact Clyde. He processed our request to book the extra time and pay for it fast and easily. Having the Wi-Fi at the house was very convenient. The beds were comfortable and perfect for when we had my brother and sister-in-law join us for part of our stay. The location was perfect for doing several day trips around the island. And the sunsets were a plus! The only thing I would add is a living room/lounge furniture area on the lanai over on the end by the big bedroom, so as to relax with coffee in the morning or wine in the evenings. What a great house and great accommodations. Thanks Clyde! We hope to return one day and would love to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Liz, glad you enjoyed your stay. We keep the lanai furniture towards the living room end so no one accidentally gets too close to the bbq when it is in use! We'd love to have you stay again. Clyde

Perfect place away from Ironman action

  • 5 of 5

We came from Germany to Kona for the Ironman with our 3 teenagers. This condo was the best, we could find! Lots of well-equipped rooms, instructions for everything, quiet neighborhood and the best lanai, we´ve ever seen! The evening breezes were brilliant, so we slept very well! It was far enough from all the Ironman action, so we could get a little recovery. We took a lot of pictures of the amazing view. Thank you very much for the possibility for the stay in this Condo! It was a pleasure!

An all-around easy and comfortable home, just like home!

  • 5 of 5

We came as two moms for a girls vacation with our combined four daughters aged 7 to 16. It was so easy to get used to the house! Plenty of room, a well-equipped kitchen, very clear instructions on everything, in a comfy neighborhood with nice fragrant evening breezes.

Our newer home, built in 2003, is located at a pleasant elevation yet close to Kailua Kona Bay. A 3.2 mile drive will take you to bay side restaurants and shops. Some of the best snorkel, sand, and surf beaches are just down the mountain to Alii Drive. The Kona coast offers beautiful views, coral snorkeling, dolphins, and whales. Explore coffee and macadamia nut farms. Our affordable prices give you the option to pay for a hotel or bed and breakfast when you make the trip east to see the volcano, hot ponds, and beauty of the Hamakua coast. You will want to explore the Island but it is called the Big Island for a good reason. Base out of our home and spend a night when it's low tide on the other side of the Island. The tide pools of Kapoho and the Hot Ponds are better at low tide. Tina manages things for us on the Island and will make sure everything is ready for you.

Our guests love the open air and views from our Lanai. We have had inquiries about the need for air conditioning. No one has air conditioning at our elevation. The temperatures are pleasant and you will sleep comfortably at night. Additionally, every room has a ceiling fan which is helpful during the warmer part of the day. There is no need to enclose yourself inside and run an air conditioner. We need that back in Texas but you will be very comfortable and enjoy the open air while staying at our home in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
