Kailua-Kona House Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront Private home Onsite access to Lyman's Bay, Located @ White Sand beach

Welcome to Lymans Hale. This beautiful OCEANFRONT 4 bedroom, 4 bath, 2900 SF home can accommodate up to 14. Every bedroom has an ocean view. The lanai offers stunning views of Holualoa Bay, Kamoa Point, Keolonahihi State Park, miles of coastline, and the world famous Lyman's and Banyan's surfing areas. Watch surfers, whales, spinner dolphins, and inspiring Hawaii sunsets from the lanai, or from the private poolside patio.

Lymans Hale is two connected units, one upstairs and one downstairs, and has two fully equipped kitchens and two separate laundry rooms. All four bedrooms have air conditioning, and ceiling fans. The two master bedrooms have the king sized beds, and the other two bedrooms have queen sized beds. There is also a queen sized bonus bed on the lanai, and two sofa beds. The house has high ceilings, large flat screen TV, premium cable, DVD, high speed wireless Internet, and free long distance phone service to the US mainland and Canada. There is a two car garage, with automatic openers. The house has a private pool and a hot tub. You will enjoy the beautiful ocean view while you are in the hot tub or playing in the pool.

Kahaluu Beach Park, a fantastic place for snorkeling, is close by. White Sand Beach Park, the best sandy beach in Kona, is 500 meters away. Every Wednesday morning, you can see the cruise ship anchored in Kailua Bay, near downtown Kona, about two miles away. It's a perfect location, within minutes of shopping, beaches, beach parks, historic sites, resorts, and all that Kona has to offer.

Lymans Hale is close to the Keauhou Shopping center where you will find grocery, drug stores, movies, and dining. It is also close to downtown Kona, where even more shopping and dining is available. As a cruise ship destination, Kona offers every type of tour and activity, from surfing lessons, to horse back riding, and even helicopter tours of the volcanoes.

Lymans Hale is directly adjacent to Keolonahihi State Park. The 12-acre park, named after the high-ranking priestess Ke-olona-hihi, is mostly forested, but also contains ancient Hawaiian sites of heiaus, platforms and enclosures.

If you surf, this is the best location Kona has to offer. Lyman's is immediately in front of the lanai, and Banyan's, another world famous surfing area, is only 200 meters across the bay.

In October, the Ironman World Championship route passes directly in front of the house.

For party is over 8 people, there will be $25 per night per person charge.

About Emmy Chen

Aloha! This is Emmy and Bob. We are the owners of these lovely vacation rentals in Kona. Emmy’s dream has always been to live in Hawaii - paradise on earth. When we first truly memorable experience in Hawaii was the family vacation on the cruise ship that visited each of the Hawaiian islands. One of Emmy’s lifelong interests has been real estate. Every destination I visit, I love exploring the properties in the area. Combining my love for Hawaii and homes, we bought these houses in Kona. Since we plan to eventually retire here, we put a lot of personal attention into these houses. We are responsible and responsive to your inquiries. The homes are well cared for and is done in Hawaiian style. Please feel free to call or email us. kona.home@yahoo.com 1-408-657-0516 Mahalo, Emmy and Bob.

Emmy Chen purchased this house in 2014

Why Emmy Chen chose Kona Coast

I've always felt at home with the tropics and the ocean. The landscape and scenery of the Big Island is unparalleled with anything else. From volcanoes to waterfalls, my family's favorite part of Kailua-Kona is the snorkeling that gives you a peek into the vast and amazing ocean life. Kona, the town itself also has a great, laid-back vibe and easy access to beaches, stores, farmer's market, and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Not many properties are on Lyman's Bay the best surf spot in Hawaii Island! This place is the surfer's dream! Located at Keolonahihi on Kamoa Point (Lyman's point), one of Hawaii's most sacred and spiritual places, this home has spectacular ocean views from bedrooms and the lanai (patio). Magic Sands Beach, great for boogie boarding, swimming, and building sand castles, is just a 10 minute walk away. The two kitchens and large living rooms are perfect for big groups. This is our most popular vacation rental and we are delighted to share our home with you. We hope you make yourself at home and enjoy your stay.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house right on the ocean. From the living room to the surf was maybe 20 feet. It has fantastic ocean views and some of the best sunsets I've ever seen. There were surfers right in front of the house nearly every day and we even saw a turtle and some dolphins a few times. The shore is rocky but when the ocean was calm enough we found some really great snorkeling right in front of the house.

The house provides beach umbrellas, chairs, towels and some extra snorkel gear which came in really handy. Emmy and Bob were fantastic to work with and even bought a box fan for us to use while we were there.

The house does not have AC in the upstairs living-room/kitchen and it got a little warm/muggy, but it was quite bearable with the sliding doors opened up you could usually catch a nice breeze.

Getting in and out of the driveway was a little tricky at times because visibility was very limited. We just eased out very slow and listened closely for traffic. A convex mirror mounted somewhere along the road might make things simpler.

We all really enjoyed our time there and would definitely go back.

Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a much-deserved vacation for my friends and I. Our annual retreat was held at Kona this year. We were looking for a calming trip without distractions and limiting technology use. Every morning at sunrise, we'd do group meditation and cook up a delicious breakfast in the kitchen. Then we'd hit the beach with our snorkels or kayak. There were fabulous restaurants downtown, just a short 5, 10 minutes drive away. The sunset was beautiful to watch over a glass of wine and fruit. This home has so many great memories for us. From sightseeing waterfalls to seeing sea turtles and dolphins, this trip was truly exhilarating. Thank you Emmy for preparing everything for us and being attentive to our needs. This vacation is one for the books. I'm ready to return home with a clear mind and refreshed body.

I can't wait to return.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This home completely lives up to the property description and photos featured. The view is amazing!!! The location is perfect to watch the locals surfing throughout the day. It is also perfect for snorkeling. We loved sitting on the lanai, watching the sunsets and even saw dolphins. It is close enough to the shops, local market and restaurants to be convenient but also far enough away so you can enjoy the peace and tranquility. It is a perfect choice for families with children because the home is very comfortable. There are plenty of beach towels and snorkeling equipment to use. We had two families so it was nice to have the two separate living areas. The home was clean and Emmy is extremely pleasant and responsive!

nice house but hot

  • 3 of 5

This is a very nice house. Plenty of room for a family of 9. This includes parents, grandparents and children. Location is wonderful.

But it is hot. The air conditioners are only in the bedrooms which is fine, but the problem is they are on 2 hour timers and it warms up rather quickly, so you get up and reset the timers every 2 hours. Never did meet the owners but had no need to. Other than the air conditioners the house is very nice with a very good location.

Family Vacation - April 2016

  • 4 of 5

Our family spend 10 nights in Emmy's house; it was the perfect location. Every evening was spent on the lanai playing cards and watching those incredible sunsets. Everyone enjoyed having their own bedroom/bathroom. Emmy recommended restaurants and a luau, both were lovely.

Just a couple things we weren't aware of before we came. Three of the four bedrooms had air-conditioning on a two hour timer. There wasn't a lot of airflow through the house so someone had to get up a couple times in the night to reset. The master bedroom doesn't have this problem. The large sliding doors/screens are in desperate need of some fixing.

The driveway has an awful blind spot; you can't see what's coming until you're on the road. Placing a large mirror on the light post on the opposite side of the road right in front of the driveway would help a lot.

All in all the house was beautiful. Our family vacation will be one we will all remember.......thank you Emmy.

Relaxing Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

How do I begin to describe? I had the most amazing time in Kona. I came here with my yoga group for a bi-annual retreat. For some of us it was our first time in Kona, Hawaii, but nonetheless we all had an amazing time. We liked that there were 2 kitchens (one upstairs, one downstairs) just so everyone had space. Each room had its own bathroom which was great. I can't say how long awaited this vacation was. It's good to take a breather once in a while. The house itself was very tidy and created a clean, welcoming atmosphere. The windows and door to the lanai were always open and the ocean breeze was always blowing about in our home. We liked that there was a local farmer's market nearby since we did spend quite a bit of cooking together. I loved that there are so many activities to do in Kona, whether you're a local or a tourist. Our yoga group is very active so we tried surfing, kayaking, and snorkeling. I have to say, it was pretty darn cool seeing real, live sea turtles and dolphins. Thanks Emmy for being attentive and very friendly. I will definitely be returning when I get the chance to.
