Kailua-Kona House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Home With Amazing Ocean Views. Could House 2 Families

Ohana (Family) Haven (a Refuge) is a perfect home base for exploring the beautiful island of Hawaii. This house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one is a master bath with double sinks.) The house is 1250 square feet with a large 225 square foot lanai. The kitchen/living room area is large and relaxing. The home is only 1 block from the LDS temple and very close to the bay where the Iron man competition is held. You will be close enough to walk to many restaurants. Costco, and Walmart are less than 5 minutes away by car. There is a small yard in the back of the house and plenty of peace and privacy. The house is on an upper level and so the ocean views are amazing. You can sit out on the Lanai and enjoy the sunset over the ocean.

The house is equipped with towels, linens and a fully stocked kitchen. There are beach towels, beach mats, and snorkel equipment for your enjoyment. There is also an onsite laundry downstairs. We provide free parking and free WIFI. We hope your time at Ohana Haven is relaxing and a perfect experience.

About David and Christy Hinkson

We are a couple with 10 children and 7 grandchildren. We love to travel as a family but have often found it difficult to find lodging that can accommodate our large family. We also enjoy having a full kitchen so that we can cook our own meals and make our travel more affordable. Ohana Haven is a dream come true for a family like ours (or even 2 regular sized families to share.) We love every one of the Hawaiian islands but find that the Big Island has so much to explore and enjoy, that we look forward to returning again and again.

Why David and Christy Hinkson chose Kona Coast

One of the reasons that we fell in love with this house is that it is only 1 block from the beautiful Kona Temple. It has a gorgeous view of the Bay where the Iron Man swim is held and the cruise ships anchor. The sun is always shining in Kona (it rarely rains) and this house is central to so many adventures. You can snow ski in the mountains, you can see beautiful beaches of many different colors and you can zipline, snorkel, paddleboard with dolphins and walk on hot volcano crust. You can see waterfalls and views that take your breath away. You can watch waves, chat with the locals, shop until you drop and enjoy an evening of dining out or a home cooked meal on the Lanai. There are so many exciting possibilities. Ohana Haven is a perfect place to get away from it all and to see and enjoy it all.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location. Close to everything and yet private and relaxing. We won't bug you but you can call us anytime with any questions or needs. We have made this little home away from home as accommodating as we can possibly imagine and we would like to open up our home to you and yours. Some unique features we supply are: Free parking, free WIFI, Snorkeling equipment, boogie board, cooler, laundry facilities, beach towels and mats, games, and even a few Hawaiian clothes hanging in a closet for your use or for family photos.

Perfect place to have a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay in Kona was great because of Ohana Haven. We were within walking distance of Kailua Bay and all the shops and restaurants on Alii Drive. Our group could run, bike, and swim and not have to drive everywhere. Ohana Haven was clean, comfortable, and had a beautiful view of sunsets and the ocean. We had a well-equipped kitchen to cook our group dinners.

Family Friendly, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. The house was clean and well stocked. We loved being so close to the farmers market, grocery stores, restaurants, walmart, movie theater and many other places. We had family and friends staying in other timeshares and hotels and this house was a great gathering place for our group before heading out for our daily activities. We would definitely love to stay here again. Others in our group mentioned they would also love to rent the place for their own families. We highly recommend this home for large families.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time during our stay. The set-up of the house was exactly what we needed and worked out perfectly for our group of 10, including a 10-month old. The extra baby items were a plus - a Pack'n'Play and baby seat.

Location was close to many items of interest as well as restaurant possibilities. Washer and dryer came in very handy!

Thank you so much for a great place to stay during our visit to The Big Island!!

Wonderful place for a family reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had our first visit to Hawaii!! We came from Alaska, and the others came in from Oregon, to total 10. Ages ranged from 45-1. All found accommodations at this house, and all were comfortable. We could easily walk just down the hill and be on the strip and beach in 7 minutes! You could snorkel, swim, see a sea turtle, eat, shop, and/or have a cocktail all within walking distance of the rental. All the beach toys, picnic accessories were all provided. The kids especially loved the geckos in the yard to play with! The sunsets were fabulous from the deck. Any questions that I had, I was able to get answered from the family renting the home within a timely manner. We would totally recommend this house for a care free, comfortable vacation to Kona!!! Aloha and Mahalo!!

Perfect for our large group

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay, clean, roomy, and very comfortable. It is well stock with towels and dishes. The stroller and playpen was real plus for our grand daughter. From the deck we watched the happenings going on out on the water such as whales breaching and people parasailing. There are apartments down stairs with wonderful tenants that at times help us find great places to go snorkeling. Very enjoyable.
