About Noe' Anna Bonas
I bought and cleared the land, designed the home for my large extended family to enjoy vacations. The house was completed in 2002 and I have enjoyed this part of Hawaii ever since. Like me, many visitors have not wanted to miss out on this rejuvenating village, away from the crowded streets of town, to discover where the locals come to eat, drink and relax here at Kealakekua Bay with family and friends. It does not take long for vacationers to soon treasure this place best known to the locals…. for its feeling of being “home”. There is no place like it… On the first floor there is a separate care-takers apt.
Noe' Anna Bonas purchased this House in 2000

We had the perfect week at this beautiful home. The location is stunning. It feels like a sancutary sitting on the lanai looking out at the treetops and the many colourful birds that surround. The home itself was well stocked, we had everything we needed and more. The rooms are bright and cozy. The beds were comfy and there was ample space for the six of us who stayed there and our families when they visited. The energey in thenhome is beautiful, creative, and light. The perfect place tomreturn tomafter a day of exploring. By the end of the week it felt like home. The bay is gorgeous and and only steps away. Just down the road, manini beach park, is a truely special place.
I cannot say enough good things about this space and the lovely hosts. They were so graciois and helpful on every account, as well as just beautiful, interesting people. Thank you so much for what was a one of a kind, magical stay.
Mahalo and we hope to see you again someday!
Mahalo nui loa, thank you very much for your presence here and the touching songs you sang. We hope all of you carry the aloha, magic and fun that you experienced here throughout all of your journeys. We look forward to your return.
Lovely peaceful and clean and just as it was described
The property is beautiful and close to lovely swimming. We loved manini I beach,two step and Hookena. We love the Kona coffee company. The snorkeling was great everywhere. You don’t need to go north of Kona where the traffic can be s pain
What a great location for our trip to Hawaii and holiday. Thank you so much for your hospitality and treats. All eleven of us are looking forward to returning soon and staying longer. Even the children. Even though we come all the way from Germany. You have a lovely home which was perfect for all of us to be together. We loved kayaking and snorkeling in the bay. That was wonderful. A memory I have is that at "2 step" we were snorkeling and just as we were coming out the dolphins came so close, we swam and watched for another hour.The baby dolphins swimming and jumping were very special for us all. Sharing meals and conversations together at your home created lots of good memories....and desires for more. You have a perfect home in all ways.We miss the birds in the morning, the quietness in the neighborhood, visiting with Sandy at Minini Beach, and being together on the lanai eating meals. We send you much love Rega
Warm Aloha Rega,
It was wonderful meeting you and your family. I am happy that you and your sisters and their husbands and children enjoyed your stay here, and exciting that you were able to swim with dolphins, and snorkel seeing the colorful underwater landscape.
It is always delightful when families of many generations like yours come together to vacation here on the Big Island, having fun and creating memories at our home at Kealakekua Bay.
Thanks again, and we hope to see you again.
Malama pono; take care
Overall the house was nice. We were a total of 9 adults and 3 children. The bedrooms downstairs were too small to accommodate more than 2 adults, so we had 3 adults and 3 young childre in the loft upstairs, which was not ideal as it is open to the main level and if we sat in kitchen the noise and light travels up. We were not allowed to use lanai after 10 PM so it was not comfortable. No real comfortable seating in living room and that space was very small.We were told several times to go inside. The owner lives in the lower apartment with 2 other ladies, which we were unaware of when we booked the place . We thought we were renting the entire house!. Too expensive for what we got!
I am very sorry that you were not pleased with our very spacious 4 bedroom home, with a 25’x25’ 4th bedroom to accommodate larger groups . It is always my intention to please and accommodate our guests as much as possible.
There is a caretaker’s apartment on the ground floor. Generally, there is only one caretaker, however at times I am there when not traveling. I did have a wonderful friend staying with me from Europe.
It is our policy to respect all of our guest’s privacy and not to disturb them, and to be available only for guests needs. e.g. change a propane tank of gas, explain how the timer on a digital oven/stove works, or show where the light to the laundry room is located...
Because there are other vacation rentals in the neighborhood as well as local people who have to get up early to go to work. We are supportive of our neighbors, we do ask for lively conversations between 10 pm and 8 am to carry-on inside the house. This respects the needs of our guests as well as others who like to get up early to kayak or snorkel and swim in the bay with dolphins. Or go off to play a round of golf, or fishing, or take off exploring for the day.
I am only aware of your guests being asked to take their conversation inside Once, when it was after midnight. One explained, "that they did not want their conversation to wake or disturb the little 3 or 4 year old girl", as she mostly screamed at the top of her lungs while awake. The neighbors did report that they couldn’t understand why she seemed so out of control, and wondered why the adults didn’t ask her to quiet down. As a parent I do understand not wanting to wake her up. One of your guests called her outbursts “screaming exuberance”. That was a very kind comment.
Many guests Bar-B-Q and dine on the lanai in the evening with conversations extending into the night by those who enjoy each other’s company and our quiet nights, and understand respecting others in a way that is not an issue.
I know it was a busy time with the wedding, one of your other wedding guests who came to our house said, “Wow this house is better than where we are staying.” I'm glad he liked it
I am happy that many of your multi-family members were able to use the kayaks, taking dads, moms and kids to share and explore the bay, swimming and snorkeling with the spinner dolphins, using the kayak permits which I provide for bay use.
We were pleased you enjoyed the garden and sharing the papayas and coconuts which it provides.
Fantastic big house!
The house is big and fantastic! The house lords are living on the first floor, and tenants live on the second and third floor. Staircases are available to the second floor directly without going through first floor, which gives tenants lots of privacy. Two bathrooms and three bedrooms are on the second floor. A gigantic bedroom is on the third floor, which could fit ~10 people! Kitchenware is complete so you don't need to bring any. The house is close to a big supermarket ChoiceMart, and a nice Chinese restaurant Hongkong Choi Suey (we are Chinese). Yard is big, so parking is no problem.
The house is very close to Captain Cook (walking distance) and the Two Step Beach (10-min drive), both of which are heavens for snorkeling. Dolphins can be observed at Captain Cook in the morning.
The house lords were quite hospitable. They baked some yummy banana bread and shared with us.
Tip: it might be a bit tough to find the house at midnight because not much road light is available, so it's recommended to arrive there before sunset. If you do arrive late, use Google Map to navigate to the termination, and you will find a crossing. Choose the way that goes farther from the beach and climb uphill and you will see the house on the right hand side.
It was wonderful meeting you all.
Many blessings for you and your wonderful family.
Thank you for staying here and enjoying the area.
Yes we do request that guests tell us if they are arriving late so we can leave the light on or be available to assist them in their arrival
Beautiful home minutes from bay
Eight of my family members and I were here for 9 days, and we really enjoyed the house. Mornings and evenings on the lanai were lovely, and several of us walked to Manini Beach multiple times a day. Anna was a gracious host who went above and beyond to try to resolve an issue arising from an error in the listing. There were two aspects of the house layout that didn't work for us: there is only one full bath accessible from the hallway, so we had two people using one bath and seven using the other; and the great room (where I was sleeping) doesn't have a door, so I woke up as soon as the earliest riser did anything in the kitchen. Overall though it's a great house; I highly recommend it.
Mahalo nui loa, thank you for your stay. You have a lovely family. I am so glad that you had a wonderful time here.
Yes, 2 full baths one in the hall and the other connected with a master bedroom, and 1 outdoor shower is shared by all guests. The high ceilings and spacious great room upstairs, is surrounded by windows is used as a dorm room and class room by many guests. I hope that your journey home was easy and you carry aloha in your heart.. a hoi hou… until next time… Noe’ Anna
