About the property

3 Bedroom Suite, 3 Bath, Hawaiian Beach House; or a single master suite rental

Kona Hale Pili is a craftsman's masterpiece and a modern adaptation of the traditional Hawaiian pili grass covered house. Originally constructed in 1972, Kona Hale Pili has been totally renovated and appointed with elegant wood and stone accents accommodating modern amenities and a environmentally conscious low voltage lighting system and point source hot water. Kona Hale Pili is comprised of three separate buildings with soaring vaulted ceilings that are centrally connected by an open air covered lanai. A open air uncovered lanai and lush tropical landscaping adjoin the central lanai. Located direct oceanfront at the north end of Kahaluu Bay, unobstructed views are offered from Kahaluu Beach to Kaiwi Point at the end of Kailua Bay. Enjoy watching the surfers at the Kahaluu surf break, reef fish and turtles, spinner dolphins and breaching whales, in season, and spectacular green flash sunsets. Kahaluu Bay is accessible adjacent to Kona Hale Pili for experienced water persons, or by an easy five minute walk to Kahaluu Beach. Kahaluu Bay is renowned for its plentiful tropical fish and green sea turtles. Kona Hale Pili is now available as a vacation rental. Take the virtual tour to fully experience the property.

Why Stephen and Joy Connor chose Kona Coast

We have been vacationers and part time residents of Hawaii for over thirty years. Our travels have taken us to many beautiful tropical places, but Kona captivated us. We found Kona Hale Pili in need of some TLC and embarked on what has become a stewardship to return the property to a condition suitable for its unique location. We enjoyed the six year renovation journey creating a craftsman's dream. You will appreciate it when you see it.

What makes this house unique

Quite simply, the oceanfront location could not be created today due to building setbacks and zoning constraints.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I love the layout and openness of the house to the ocean. You did a great job building it out, fantastic!

Big island vacation

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home and ocean front property. Master br is wonderful but some street noise is evident in both back bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Usually the ocean sounds mitigate Alli Drive background noise. Being on the ocean means being adjacent to Alii Drive. The ocean sounds are normally very melodic.

Beautiful house, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. The house is every bit as beautiful as it looks in the photos. And even though we were unable to snorkel in front of the house due to big ocean swells the week we were there, we did get in some excellent snorkeling at the beach, just a five-minute walk from the house. Highly recommended - we will be back!

Beautiful setting and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two sons, parents, and I went and stayed here for my 40th birthday. It was a wonderful stay. The house is clean, beautifully done, the kitchen is well-stocked with cooking supplies, the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms big and beautiful, and the view cannot be beat. The owners are very kind and responsive to questions. It was a terrific experience.

This home more than met our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was very accurate and this property was very clean and well-maintained. The décor was up to date and had the feel of a very upscale house. The owner and people locally responsible provided excellent customer service. They answered all my questions in a timely manner. The owner provided a list of restaurants and things to do which were all very helpful. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and relatives. The view from this house was unbelievable!

Thank you for an outstanding holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fantastic week at Stephen and Joy's Beach House. Our family of 6, including 4 adult children, came together in this beautiful home to celebrate Christmas and discover the island.

The house is even more beautiful than the pictures show. It is exceptionally designed and outfitted, and likely one of the most beautiful and welcoming homes we have ever rented. The space is very clean and comfortable, open to the blue skies and the ocean, and extremely relaxing. Memories of sitting on the steps watching the waves and the clear starry skies will stay with us. The beds are dreamy and the open kitchen is ideal for family cooking. There is nothing we would have changed or asked for.

Joy and Stephen were wonderful hosts. The communication was seamless and they promptly answered all our questions. The house is ideally located just outside of Kona, and a perfect starting point for adventures east and west. We hope to return some day, and sincerely thank Stephen and Joy for making our holiday a memorable and special time for our family.

Indoor/Outdoor Living at it's Best

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully unique architecture in this home. Such a great feeling of being outdoors - just open up the walls and you are part of the wonderful outside. You are about 5 steps from just jumping into the ocean and able to snorkel right from your backyard! Amazing sunsets, spinner dolphins, whales and turtles are right in front of you. We would absolutely come again. Probably the only down side is the traffic on Ali'i Dr. Small price to pay for the location and beauty.

Kona Hale Pili is a modern adaptation of the traditional Hawaiian house. Hawaiian open air living at its best with louvered windows. Air conditioning is not needed as the diurnal breeze from the ocean during the day and the mountains in the evening provide natural air circulation. Ceiling fans throughout provide gentle air circulation in the bedroom suites.

Spend a relaxing day with an unobstructed view of the ocean for exceptional dolphin and whale watching. You will also have the prime location for watching the surfers at the surf break.

Dining, groceries and shopping are all conveniently located nearby.

For experienced water persons only, the ocean is accessible from the adjacent lava point. Easy ocean access is available at Kahaluu Beach.

We look forward to having you as our guests!
