Kailua-Kona House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The newly remodeled 400 sq ft suite in my 'Little Surf Shack' has a great 180 degree view of Kona's coastline...

Check out the shoreline breaks to see which beaches are pounding and choose your surf spot... Those of you who don't surf, the harbor, town and many other water activities are just minutes away... sailing, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving.. A fun trip on Fairwind's Cruise for those who like water, but want to have the a kicked back experience, visiting historical sites while enjoying a freshly grill burger in between water slides and tubing... is surely one way to go...

Once you return from a day at the shore..enjoy cool breezes, cocktails and pupus on your private lanai taking in the sunset views...or check up on the Nation's news (really?) with the wall mounted Flat screen TV/DVD in your suite...

The 400 sq ft private suite houses 1 bedroom off the lanai, adjoining bathroom, and a fully equipped wet bar (refrigerator, microwave, kettle, French press) and everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Private chef services and cooking classes can be reserved, as well a farm tours to the area orchid, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, organic and aqua-ponic farms.

About Amy Ferguson

I came to the Big Island of Hawaii in 1985 as a Food and Beverage Director for a small Hawaiian Resort. I fell in love, got married, had a son, opened a restaurant (12 yr and closed in 2008). Now, find myself a single empty nester in a house too big for just me... I think I have been watching too much HGTV as a Realtor and DIY enthusiast I decided to remodel my son's room and bath into a vacation rental..

What fun! Travertine tile bathroom floor, slick new vessel galore... wet bar and private lanai... all in 2 weeks!

You'll love the lotus pond and gardens..

If you are looking for a place to buy while you are here, please let me know..I will be happy to pull up listing you can peruse during your stay...

BTW I have 2 cats Kit Kat and Goldie, 18 Hens laying ( no roosters to wake you)...

Amy Ferguson purchased this house in 1986

Why Amy Ferguson chose Kona Coast

I have the best of both worlds.. Cool elevation and 180 degree coastal sunset views...I haven't found anywhere I would rather live here in Hawaii... great location, great views, close to any activity... serene...

What makes this house unique

If you are a food enthusiast, then you are in luck. I offer private chef and catering services...any meal and cooking classes as well as farm tours at an additional charge...You'll enjoy the harvest of the organic gardens, my hens fresh daily eggs and if you would like breakdown of restaurants in the area...

Great place to stay for one or two people.

  • 5 of 5

My husband found the listing for the Little Surf Shack and all the reviews had five stars. So we booked for two weeks. Easy to find with our GPS, located high up and back from the Kona Airport. No plane noise, an expansive view, the house has lovely gardens, enough storage for our items, a small refrigerator, coffee maker and other items you want. We prepared our breakfasts using the hot plate and pans, and there is a grill on the lanai that we did not use, the lanai provides additional space to walk out on or relax at the table. Plenty of towels are provided. There was a beach umbrella, two beach chairs, and two boogie boards which we used nearly daily. The neighborhood is residential and we enjoyed our stay always looking forward to returning to the the Little Surf Shack to relax until the next day of adventure on this our now favorite Hawaiian island the Big Island. Thanks again Amy for providing wonderful accommodations and your Aloha spirit.

Amy is a very caring and considered person . Always making sure all our needs were met. The view was breathtaking and the room was very clean. We are looking forward to going back to Hawaii and staying at Amy's residents. We would recommend our friends and family to stay there.

Great Views Great Location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Amy's place for 4 nights and it was exactly as advertised. The views from the deck were perfect as we watched the sun set each night. We used the deck to have dinner and also cooked meals on the grill. The place is basically a one room efficiency with a mini fridge and a sink however we cooked all kinds of meals using the grill and hot plate. Amy had the place fully stocked with Micro wave, coffee pot, plates and utensils etc so it worked for us. The bed was extremely comfortable as well. We loved shower/tub which had strong water pressure and very hot water.

When we were looking for places to stay we wanted a place that was convenient to the airport as we had traveled close to 24 hours to get to Hawaii and didn't want to go on a long drive when we arrived. Amy's place is about 5-8 minutes away which worked.

Amy was a great host and when we go back we will definitely want to stay at her place again.

A Wonderful Place to Stay on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time on the Big Island. We lived on Oahu for five years and when we visit the islands we look for places to stay that provide a quiet and peaceful setting away for the rest of the crowds. Amy’s is a wonderful host and her rental was just what we wanted.

Thank you Amy,

v/r, Bill & Wendy

Everything that it shows, it's quite and the view from the lani is great

  • 5 of 5

The property has a good location,.The lani is great for cooking,there's a grill which makes a nice setting over looking the water and with table and chairs for the romantic scene for having dinner with a sunset. Amy is great, she doesn't bother you,but their when needed,my 12 days were very relaxing. I highly recommend this place to anybody who wants to a good vacation,she also has plenty of brochures to go and do just about everything the island has to offer.

I would like to take the time to thank Amy for a wonderful time

Sincerely Jeff Salter
