About mark

Yacht Captian at Capt Mark Trivisonno yacht charters & Delievers

mark purchased this house in 2013

Why mark chose Kailua-Kona

We fell in love with Kona Hale Kai Alii Pool Spa immediately. We found this home and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with friends and family.

What makes this house unique

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.

What a great place! Great location, great amenities, a very special house that felt like home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group, which included our grown children and spouses, as well as my mother and Aunt (who stayed just across the street), concluded that this was the best vacation ever! A huge part of that was this property. Large and comfy, it was a natural gathering spot, with an incredible oceanside setting. We spent every available moment on the huge Lanai, watching and listening to the waves lapping up next to the beautiful pool, with a cool ocean breeze in our face! In addition to the porpoises swimming out in the bay, a favorite activity every day was checking out the tidal pools, which could be safely observed from the deck of the swimming pool! Many colorful reef fish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, small to medium sized eels, lots of little crabs, etc., all observed by taking a careful look into the water. I'm sure none of the nearby properties can match this oceanside setting! The location is close to downtown (easily walkable), but far enough away to avoid the occasional crowds. To celebrate a birthday, we had a local chef, Timothy James, and a local musician, Kalima, come to the house for a very special evening! Fine dining, drinks, great music and dancing, all on the best oceanside setting!

We had originally thought about doing more of an island hopping vacation, but are so glad we chose to stay here for all 10 days. There is so much to see and do, for all three generations of our group, on the big island, that we wish we had another couple weeks to stay! Our thanks to Capt. Mark, a most attentive and concerned owner, who did everything to make sure we were happy! I could go on and on, but I'll close by saying that I can't imagine staying anywhere else on our return trip to Kona!!

Great Summer Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Kona, spent 8 nights at the house!! Mark was great to work with and the location of the house worked great for our family! Between going to the beaches in the mornings, afternoons at the pool with grandkids, and having Ponchoman, a local musician entertain us for an evening at the pool while we bbq'd steaks, the week was perfect! Sunsets every evening while enjoying a glass of wine or a mai tai capped off every evening! Would definitely recommend for families looking to spend time on the Big Island!!

Mark is awesome.

By the time we got to Kona we kind of expected Mark to be there, felt like part of the family =) Through all of our communications with Mark we got to know him , super helpful and easy to deal with. MAHALO MARK!

Best family vacation - the house lacks nothing! It is a beach house and oh so comfortable, and that pool - best thing ever!

We will be back!

On a side note -Jeff ( he met is there on arrival) and Sherri are very helpful and delightful =)

Miss it already but have awesome memories to cherish =)........until next time ALOHA

Amazing Home on an amazing island!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the beginning Mark was an awesome host - kept in contact before stay letting us know of good times to come. Very professional and poitive. He was even there to open up house and show us around.

As soon as he opened doors all mouths of our party of 8 dropped - the views/pool/hot tub are straight out of a magazine. Loved watching sunsets and feeding the eels - very special for all of us. Home is stocked with all kinds of little extras (boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, cooler, flashlights, set of binoculars, ...) that helped to make trip smooth.

With doors/windows open very airy and breezy - no problem sleeping even with temps hot in June. Always hot Gramma slept in the room with AC and would just turn on at night and shut doors to get down to her normal sleeping temp of frigid but no one ever complained of being too hot.

Big Island is great - volcano park was awesome. Used the info large paperback book at the home (there are two of them) to help us tour around - brought us to some awesome beaches/waterfalls. Did night manta ray snorkel which was a once in lifetime experience - saw about 15-20 huge rays.

We are leaving with some awesome memories many of which have to do with Mark's amazing home and hospitality. Thanks much.

Our family of 10 fit comfortably.

The house does still need detail work done. The essentials were comfortable.

A slice of heaven in Hawaii - AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

From inquiry to booking to deposit return, Mark was extremely responsive and friendly. All coordination went smoothly. This house is VERY special. Being able to fall asleep to the sound of the Pacific Ocean is such a luxury. The ocean breezes keep the house cool - NO need for air conditioning. The newly remodeled kitchen was well stocked and perfect for preparing family meals on the patio. A short walk or drive to anything that you need in Kona. Minutes north of the one of the best snorkeling beaches on Hawaii. My favorite parts about the house were the amazing sliding doors that allowed the wind and waves to be enjoyed as much inside as outside and of course the pool located directly on the ocean. Our family hopes to return next year!
