This is your perfect family vacation destination to experience all that Hawaii has to offer. Please address your inquiry personal to " Mark". Enjoy this private two story oceanfront pool home on Alii Drive with its stunning views from living room, dining room and upstairs bedrooms. Swim or float in the large sparkling pool, work on your tan, read or just relax. Unwind in the jacuzzi after a fun day of island adventures. The Main living area of this 2400 square foot home opens up to a large lanai overlooking the pool, spa and of course, the ocean. Enjoy your meals outdoors, if you like, on the downstairs lanai where spinner dolphins congregate at the Ironman turn-around buoy straight out front. Sea turtles and several fish species reside in the area.Whale watching in the winter season is a sight to behold. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs, including an ensuite bathroom in the master bedroom, with a large lanai to experience expansive ocean views and breathtaking Hawaiian sunsets. Honl's Beach is very nearby, where you can swim, boogie board, take surf lessons or just enjoy the day with a picnic lunch. Historic downtown Kailua-Kona is a 10 minute walk away for shopping, dinning and nightlife. Make your Hawaiian memories here.
We fell in love with Kona immediately. We found this home and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with friends and family.
Private swimming pool and spa and 180 degree views, spectacular sunsets, 2 minute walk to Honls Beach for surfing and snorkeling or a picnic lunch and a short walk to Historic downtown Kailua-Kona. This home is right in front of the Ironman turn-around buoy where spinner dolphins often congregate. You will see whales in season and many other ocean species. Comfortable Hawaiian living at it's best! All 3 upstairs bedrooms have a lanai with great views. The tradewinds flow through this house beautifully.
AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING.....that's all I have to say. Ocean front....the sound of the waves crashing below makes you sleep like a baby! Awesome house that I can NOT wait to come back to! Don't hesitate....just book it!
Spent 13 days at Mark's beautiful house. Brought the whole family! Grand kids, sister-in-law, and niece. Ten total. The house was perfect. Loved having the pool right outside for everyone to enjoy. Views are nothing short of spectacular. Mark has the house equipped with anything you might need. He also checks to make sure you are well taken care of often. The toughest part of the vacation was leaving! Thank you so much Mark for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful place! Mahalo!
We had a group of nine, including a 1 1/2-year-old, who traveled from all over the country to this house in Kona. The view from the house is truly amazing and the sunsets are so incredibly beautiful. The owner, Mark, and the manager, Chris, are very helpful if you need anything, and are available by a quick text or call.
The house is stocked: flashlights, bluetooth speakers, plenty of dishes & bbq gear, snorkel gear, water shoes, bicycles, beach toys and pool floaties galore, beach chairs & umbrellas & sand mats, an ice chest, movies, games, boogie boards, binoculars, shampoo & conditioner, first-aid kits, and more. It's true—only the master bedroom has AC, but no one complained a bit. We didn't even use the AC in the master. Every room has a ceiling fan, plus many other floor fans and if you open the windows at night, you get a lovely breeze and the temperature is perfect. There are only 2 showers, which worked fine if everyone doesn't mind sharing.
You can walk or take the bikes a short 10-15 minutes into town for food, drinks, or the market. The Green Flash, a wonderful coffee shop/breakfast spot with amazing smoothies and sandwiches, is just a 5 minute (less than a half mile) walk south of the house—highly recommend it.
The pool and the lanai make this house. The saltwater pool is basically built in the ocean—it's so close the waves splash up and into the pool sometimes! I can say our toddler daughter learned to swim by herself in the pool, and had SO much fun in there! We had a little trouble with the hot tub the first couple days, but Mark sent someone over as soon as he could and helped us figure it out. It gets nice and hot and feels so nice to sit in while watching the sunsets! You could look out and see little crabs on the rocks. You could see spinner dolphins right out in front of the house almost daily. And at night you could see and feed eels in the waters below the hot tub!
It rained a lot during our stay, which I think is kind of unusual for Kona, but it definitely didn't ruin our trip! We would all be sitting outside at the table under the cover, and it would start raining hard and sometimes we hardly even noticed—the good times continued on. The house was the perfect location to meet up with our relatives—we would all come back in a heartbeat!
If you are searching for a truly amazing property on the Big Island, choose this one. This a beautiful ocean front home. The concierge style service the owner provides prior to and during your stay is above and beyond expectations. Peaceful coffee on the master suite lanai in the morning and a beautiful sunset in the evening with time to swim, hot tub and grill in between. Easy walking distance to town makes dining, shopping and sight seeing a breeze even if you decide not to rent a vehicle during your stay. The property manager was also very kind and helpful. With the island breeze, sound of the ocean waves and a comfortable bed, we slept like babies.
We have used VRBO several times in the past and this vacation was by far our most exceptional! 5 stars all the way!
We had an exceptional stay at Mark's lovely house - we were 5 adults and 5 children and all had a great time. Mark was a fantastic host through the entire booking process to the checking out to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The photos are a real reflection of how beautiful the location is and every day we all enjoyed the pool and views and made good use of the outdoor dining area. Really could not have asked for a better stay or host - so Mahalo!
The first picture of the pool and ocean sum up an amazing experience on the Big Island. If you are looking for nature and amenities coming together, this is the property for you. You are so close to the water that the ocean waves splash up into the pool. We spent almost all our non-sleeping time by the pool or on the huge covered lanai when we weren't exploring the island. We fed eels in the water below the hot tub. How cool is that? The house is big with plenty of space and was very well stocked. # bedrooms with kings and one with two singles. One caution, this is a beach house and not the Ritz Carlton. Only 1 of the 4 bedrooms have air conditioning as of this review and Mark is working on updating the kitchen this summer. There are tons of fans, including ceiling fans. Everything worked fine, but just be aware. Plenty of beach chairs and gear to take to a beach too. Mark texted and called me multiple times to make sure everything was going fine. That was very comforting as it was our first time to the island. The Royal Kona luau was 1/2 mile up the road and great. Definitely go to the volcano at night to see the lava glow. That was very cool. I recommend Captain Dan McSweeney for whale watching. He has been doing it for 40 years and really new his stuff. Overall, a great experience for 6 adults and two teenagers. Thanks Mark!
This a photographers paradise! Access to several activities, including paddleboarding and outrigger rentals, surf lessons and snorkeling are nearby.
