Aloha, My name is Sandra and I have lived in Kona since 1970. I came from California in search of cleaner beaches to ponder my future. As it turned out, I stayed - and have loved living here ever since. I have traveled the world and must say 'there is no place like home'. When my children grew and moved out I discovered that this home was too big for me, so I turned downstairs portion into a vacation retreat, which includes the pool, yard and downstairs kitchen and I'm so very happy to share this precious, peaceful place with visitors and share my knowledge of the Island as requested. I look forward to meeting you.
Sandra purchased this House in 1990
Why Sandra chose Kalaoa
This particular area of Kona is perfect as far as climate and location. I have lived in many different areas of the Island, and this location is, by far, the BEST. At 900 ft. elevation, the great views are expansive and the climate, temperate. Coastal living can be very hot in Hawaii, while we are enjoying soft trade winds to keep the temperatures perfect. I also love this location because there are approximately 12 world class golf courses within a short drive, and the harbor is just 3 miles away, a launching place for many water activities. We are on one full acre , a beautiful park with no neighbors below us, which gives us all the privacy you could ask for.
What makes this House unique
If you choose to stay home one day and forego the many close, exciting, fun activities that the Big Island has to offer, this is what a typical day may look like. . . Wake up to the sweet sounds of song birds, lounge around your private pool and soak up the warming rays of the sun while awaiting your turn for an incredible, nurturing, relaxing massage by one of Kona's most experienced and well trained medical Massage Therapists (me : )). Leisurely prepare some breakfast in the outdoor kitchen while enjoying melodious Hawaiian music piped out to the pool area as the palms gently sway and the wind chimes sing to entertain you. IF you feel like going for a little walk, take hold of the fruit pickers and roam around the acre; in season you may find avocados, mangos, papaya, banana, zapote, pineapple and much more / help yourself.

Was a fantastic stay
Our family loved staying here, truly felt like a paradise. The accommodations were great, we really liked that the kitchen and dining area were outdoors, not common to us coming from SD. Our 3 kids all play soccer so they had plenty of room to kick the ball around and play frisbee in the huge yard. Picking fresh fruit from the property was awesome too. The kids ate a ton of fresh starfruit while we were there. We received a botanical tour from the yard care guys that came by to mow and clean the property and then one of them invited our kids to join the local youth soccer club at their next pick-up game time which they did (another highlight for them). The pool and hot tub were used a lot, we got some really awesome silhouetted pictures of our kids doing poses on the diving board at sunset. The view is breathtaking but even more so at sunset. We also enjoyed the badminton. Always felt like there was something for everyone to stay occupied with. Sandra was very accommodating and always responsive if we had a question. Although this was our first VRBO experience, I’m not sure there’s a better property out there.😉
We were there last week, and it is an amazing place. The pool and spa along with the gardens were great!!! It was also very convenient.
Thank you for your kind words; please come again. I hear from so many people that this place is even better than the pictures, but I'm not a photographer and it's difficult to capture "comfort" and "exquisite" in pictures.
I'm happy your family had a good Kona experience and I was able to accommodate you.
Much Aloha and Mahalo
Magical time on a beautiful island. Sandra’s garden is just amazing and made our stay extra special
The garden and outdoor space are exceptional and a wonderful place to hang out complete with volley ball net, pool, hot tub, outdoor kitchen and fruit trees galore. And you have it all to yourself with a killer view of the ocean and cooling trade winds. The main room is spacious with plenty of room to spread out in. You are away from the noisy commercial center of Kona and a super short drive from it if you want to get to town. A perfect place to make your base and easily explore the island from. Sandra has lots of top tips to share and creates a warm friendly retreat for her guests. Mahalo!
A great location lush property kitchen-pool-jacuz
Everything was great except that our chef had problems with no oven in the kitchen. I would have liked maybe one sofa bed in the main room. But we had 11 people in our group. Nice with kitchen, bar & pool & jacuzzi all close together. Great views at this altitude & good for sleeping. I slept under the stars. Lush gardens & yard area. I would stay here again.
Beautiful private location
This was a wonderful home for us to base a week of island exploration. The view was panoramic, surrounding gardens and bird life made it relaxing, and the hosts were extremely kind and helpful. I would highly recommend this for couples or for families with young children.
Perfect for our family
Our recent stay here was so enjoyable. The entire yard, pools, and outside kitchen were awesome. You could get whatever balance you wanted between the heat of the sun and a break in the vast shaded areas. The yard is huge, secluded, and beautiful with amazing views of the coast below. The elevation is high enough that it cools off nicely at night for comfortable sleeping without any need for air conditioning. Our kids had plenty of things to do in the yard and we all loved it so much that we stayed and enjoyed it more than leaving to do some of the other tourist things on our list. We have already started talking about when we can return to this wonderful property. Thanks so much, Sandra - Mark N
Thank you for taking the time to write up a review. We look forward to your return.
Public tennis courts, many world class golf courses, great shopping and lots of different ocean sports are available within minutes from the house. Kona is known for its world-class marlin fishing. We are almost directly above Honokohau Harbor which has a fun restaurant for lunch and is also where the fishing charters and many other ocean activities (sunset sails, manta ray snorkeling and diving cruises, zodiak tours, whale watching etc.) are based. There are some wonderful white sand beaches and tide pool areas within a 10 or 15 minute drive. Costco is our closest market and is a great place to stock up for your vacation. It is also the most economical place to buy gas.
