Perfectly located getaway close to Kona in a beautiful and quiet area with the old Hawaiian feeling just above historical Kealakekua Bay (ranked as #11 by CNN as the world's best snorkeling destinations and #1 among the Hawaii islands). Close to beaches, snorkeling, restaurants, supermarket, cafes, bank, hospital and more.
The house is perfectly situated, close to both Kona and Kealakekua Bay. If you are trying to save some dollars and renting further south, beware that the road gets windy and what looks like a short distance on the map may be an extra 20-30 minute drive.
Our brand new and beautiful 4600 sq. ft. (427 sq. meter) LUXURY house has two identical separate floors (2300 sq. ft. on each floor). The house is super comfortable with everything you can possibly need and a breath taking 180-degree view of the mountains and the ocean.

The house is a perfectly located getaway close to Kona in a beautiful area with the old Hawaiian feeling just above historical Kealakekua Bay (ranked as #11 by CNN as world's best snorkeling destinations and #1 among the Hawaii islands). It is located in a very nice and quite neighborhood.
The covered lanai is great for enjoying your morning coffee while watching the sun climbing over the mountain top, or watch the sun set over the ocean while enjoying our dinner table that seats 8 people when the chef is cooking on the outdoor grill. At night you will be amazed by the beautiful night sky with all the stars. With a fantastic 180-degree view of the mountain and the ocean, from Kealakekua Bay to Honaunau, you can sit for hours just relaxing in our luxury patio chaise loungers or the big outdoor coach.
The ground floor has a beautiful kitchen and living room all in one but the kitchen is without an oven and a regular cook top (instead it has a dual hot plate, a microwave oven and a large outdoor grill with a gas burner). The kitchen has beautiful quartz stone counter tops and a big kitchen island. It has a brand new dishwasher, a big refrigerator and freezer. You can cook in the kitchen and watch the 65-inch TV in the living room at the same time, or have a drink and a snack at the kitchen island that seats 4 while you are watching the chef preparing your food. Enjoy your dinner on the lanai at our big dinner table which seats up to 8 or at the kitchen island that seats 4 people.
The ground floor has 2 bedrooms with attached bathrooms with shower and toilets and walk in closets. The ground floor sleeps 4 people (1 King and 2 Twin beds) and there is a possibility to put in one extra folding bed with memory foam (perfect for children). The living room has a 65 inch TV and a luxury sofa.
When you wake up in your bed i the morning, open your eyes, look through the big sliders and be swept away by the amazing ocean view. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms with two private bathrooms and walk in closets. At 1100 ft. the temperature is just perfect, 80 degrees during the day and 70 degrees at night. You sleep great at this elevation without an air conditioning. Please note that the lanai of the ground floor is 12 ft. from the ground if you have small children. We have railings which are up to building code, but small children should always be supervised by an adult on the lanai.
Our house is perfectly located in a beautiful green and quite neighborhood with an easy driveway and plenty of parking. Just minutes away from shopping and the best breakfast place on the island, The Coffee Shack.
Your first day, you are most likely heading down to Kealakekua Bay, to snorkel, watch wild spinner dolphins in the morning or kayaking. Either way it’s a convenient 12-minute drive. Your second day, you may want to go south for 20 minutes and visit the sandy and most private beach of Hookena, one of the gems when it comes to beaches in the area, with great swimming and sometimes plenty of wild dolphins. One of the evenings, you will drive 10 minutes north for fine dining at Keei Café, or just have great food at Annie's Burger, or continue another 10 minutes north for all the choices Kailua-Kona has to offer.
Our house is a great base for exploring the Island. We love to go around the Island for a long day, or if you haven’t done it before, stay a night in Hilo to have some more time exploring the area. Driving around the Island in one day, starting at 6 AM, will allow time for a visit to the Volcano, lunch in Hilo, driving the amazing 4-Mile Scenic Drive through the rain forest, experiencing Akaka Falls just before sunset and then coming back through Waimea and Kona around 8 PM. Adding another day will make time for a visit to Hilo Zoo, it’s a blast for the children, and watch the lava flow at night.
We always love to come back to the peace and calmness of our neighborhood and the house after a long day on the road. Going north of Kona to the resorts is an easy 45-minute drive, and will be fun for a day. Hilton Waikoloa is well worth a visit just to get the feeling of how nice it is to be back at the house! There are several great beaches up north as well. The largest sandy beach on the island is Hapuna Beach Park (50 minutes drive).
