About the property

Large Beach House In Quiet Private Cul-De-Sac. Sleeps 12 Comfortably.

People call it the Blue Lagoon home. The official Hawaiian name for the home is "Hale 'Olu Olu", "The home of relax and comfort" which was recently given the name by Kahu Danny Akaka after a traditional Hawaiian house blessing was done for the home. The home is considered a great Hawaii beach house with nice Hawaiian decor. Park the car and walk to the beach. It’s a 5 minute walk to White Sands Beach (aka, Magic Sands Beach) and a 10 minute walk to Kahalu’u Beach Park, one of Kona’s premier snorkeling spots.

The Hale 'Olu Olu is a private home nestled in the quiet community of White Sands Estates. The home is built to feel as if you’re sleeping in the open tropical air and trees with detailed Hawaiian features throughout the home. The location is great for both the active person or just to sit and relax. After a day at the beach enjoy the sunset view from the Lanai and the living room or wash off the sand and jump in the private blue lagoon like salt water pool.

This family friendly Hawaiian beach house is a great hub for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, wedding get together and don't forget the annual Ironman world championship.

The property is dotted with palms, fruit and plumeria trees. The home sits in a friendly and normally quiet cul-de-sac in a friendly Kona neighborhood.

The Hale 'Olu Olu is a large two story home. All bedrooms have its own private bath and entryway along with a private lanai. All the downstairs rooms have an upgraded feature of a wet bar for added convenience. The home has a separate stand-alone unit for additional privacy. Hale 'Olu Olu is great for birthdays, anniversaries and wedding get together's.

*Upstairs: Master bedroom with a queen and second family room set up to be used as a bedroom room with a futon full bed, Hawaiian armoire and office nook.

Downstairs has a bedroom with a queen, wet bar and private bath and lanai. A second and third bedrooms consist of two twins (covert-able to kings) each with its own bath, private lanai and wet bar. The separate unit consists of a queen, private bath and kitchenette. All bedrooms have a TV and wet bar. The beach home also comes with a full laundry facility, wireless and patio table for eight and an extra BBQ in the patio area.

We also have two Pak-n-Plays, high chair and three fold-aways for extra sleeping accommodations.

Other amenities include beach equipment, boogie boards, snorkel gear and three strand cruisers (bikes).

Amenities near by are White Sand Beach (aka, Magic Sands, aka La'aloa Beach) 2-3 minute walk, Khalu'u Bay a 10 minute walk for snorkeling, Kona Village 20 minute bike ride or 10 minute car ride, KTA Shopping center a 4-5 minute drive and the birth place of King Kamehameha III and all the associated historical reference just to name a few.

Water sports is extremely big on the Big Island. Banyans, a world famous surf spot is on a 2-3 minute drive located at the 2 mile marker along Ali'i drive, Snorkeling can be done just about anywhere along the coast when its calm, usually in the morning hours. There are many luanch points for paddle boarding and kayaking. Surf lessons can be conveniently taken at Kahalu'u Bay through Kahalu'u Bay Surf and Sea which is just a short distance from the Hale.

About Mike & Laura (Owners)

Owners and operators Mike & Laura, married for 33 years and semi retired love to travel to the Big Island. Its our favorite island of all the islands because of its laid feel and the friendliness of the local people. Mike grew up in New Mexico and Laura in Southern California. We currently live in Southern California and look to living in Kona in the future.

Mike & Laura (Owners) purchased this house in 2014

Why Mike & Laura (Owners) chose Kona Coast

We love this property because of its location, close to the beach, close to snorkeling and surfing and it's quiet location. The home also fits our family well when we come out to stay. We especially love waking up in the mornings to the sounds of birds and the ocean. Our favorite thing to do is to walk down and watch the sunset every evening and come back and BBQ and site around, eat and talk on the upstairs lanai.

What makes this house unique

The feel of the home is Hawaiian in and out. Our daily routine is, early morning run or walk on Al'i Dr. walk to either Magic Sands Beach Park or Kahalu'u Beach Park to snorkel. Come home wash of the sand at the outside shower and jump into the pool, then BBQ on the Lanai and watch sunset. Get an occasional golf game in or just simply just sit and relax.

Best thing about homes location is closeness to beaches and the village of Kona. The home is very close to the popular Kahalu'u Bay known as a pristine snorkeling spot on the islands and just steps away from Magic Sands beach. The home "DOES NOT" have air conditioning. The home is built in the theme of the old Hawaiian style of the open air concept with fans in every room.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful. House was spotless so much room and each bedroom has its own bath!

Ohana was perfect for my daughters little family...the pool was perfect, and the lanai off the kitchen's view of sunset was gorgeous. Walked to magic sands to swim each day veey convenient for young and old alike. The house decor was extremely tasteful and the house held everything we needed.

Highly recommend for families with children of all ages...or for couples wanting to get away.

Owner's Response: Aloha Lisa, Mahalo for the great review! We too feel that the home is great for families and couples alike and made a effort to set it up that way both with convenience and the decor. It's nice to see the feedback confirms our teams efforts. We're glad you enjoyed the Ohana and pool and the sunsets too. Mahalo...Mike & Laura

Great house for a large crowd.

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 people in our group and the house fit us nicely. The house is a nice distance from snorkeling and the town of Kona. We bought food at the markets and made most meals at the house together. There isn't a great place to sit the whole group, so we just pulled some chairs into the living room and all sat around and are together using the couches and chairs. Overall, we all had a great experience and would come back again in a heartbeat.

Stunning! Spacious! Clean! Easy to Rent! Close to everything! Every amenity plus more! Speechless!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we knew we had arrived to Paradise. Not only because we were on the Big Island but because the house was perfect in every way. The house is so well kept, the house manager is so helpful and responsive, everything you can think of possibly needed was already in the house. We forgot to buy a few things at Costco on our way in and to our surprise the house was already stocked with anything we possibly needed. The vibe in the community is amazing! You can feel the love around you. Our family won't be staying anywhere else when we head back to Kona. The day we arrived back home to LA we immediately had people asking us how to book the house because of all the beautiful photos we had posted. Kona's sunset is gorgeous but not as gorgeous as watching it from the comfort of your vacation rental. One morning I woke up and looked out our window and there was a cruise ship in the distant water. The sites and sounds from the home are unbelievable. I wouldn't honestly recommend staying anywhere else. It was so convenient to get up, make up breakfast, pack lunch for the day and head out to our excursions for the day. And then coming back home to make dinner, have a few cocktails and not worry about driving or ubering anywhere. In fact we had a few friends that were staying on the island over for dinner and they all said they wished they would have rented the home before us. One morning I woke up and went for a light jog along the coast just one block from the house. I ran along the coast for about three miles and then returned back to the house and enjoyed a nice breakfast in the outdoor family room overlooking the ocean and community around me. We stayed at the house with four other couples and it was great how everyone had their own shower, their own entrance, their own mini fridge, and coffee pot. The most famous snorkeling spot in Kona is just half a mile away from the house. And Magic Sands beach which has the best sunset view is also only a block away. Downtown Kona is about a 5 minute drive away as well. The Luau we went to which was also amazing was only a five minute drive. Green Sand Beach one of only four of its kind in the world is an hour drive from the house with stunning views of the coast the whole way. I can't say enough of how amazing this house is. And how easy the process of renting it is. The owners are amazing! And the house management team are exceptional as well! You'd be a fool to stay anywhere else!!!

A Great spot for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

12 of us 4 kids and 8 adults had a spectacular week, the pool was in constant use with the kids while the adults enjoyed the upper lanai with BBQ and a well outfitted kitchen to provide many memorable family meals just after sundown. All in all it was a perfect spot to explore the big island and come home to a spacious and welcoming Hawaiian home. Mike and Laura were very responsive and accommodating to our many quires, as we arranged the reservation more than a year before our arrival.

Shielded from winds by Maunaloa, south Kona’s calm and clear waters are perfect for snorkeling, diving and spotting dolphins and honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles). One of Kona’s most memorable experiences is going on a manta ray boat tour to scuba or snorkel with these gentle, graceful sea creatures. Kona is also famous for its deep-sea fishing, hosting the International Billfish Tournament (August) every year. And on land, don’t forget to travel to the cooler upland slopes of towns like Holualoa, where you can sample the distinctive flavors of 100% Kona coffee. On the versatile Kona coast, you’ll find the adventures are as big as the island itself.
