Overview

About the property

Heated Private Pool! 2 miles from town! Sunsets! Designer Decorated!

This luxury home has direct ocean views from the living room, the dining room, the kitchen and the master bedroom! You can hear the surf from your bed at night! Air Conditioning!

This is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath private luxury home with a panoramic (sunset) view of the Ocean. This is not an 'ohana' (or in-law suite) associated with another house as some of them are. This is a separate house on its own separate lot. This house has a private solar-heated pool…a hot tub with an ocean view…a printer, WiFi, and is a 5 minute drive to the main shopping and restaurant district in town and also to the closest beaches. The house has an extensive video collection of 'favorite' DVD movies (including children's movies), and has some toys, a high chair and Graco Pac n Play for children, and an extra cot if needed (please ask us for this before your stay). It has most appliances you could want. The back of this house overlooks the ocean and is very private. The front overlooks the mountains. Air Conditioning is in all the bedrooms and will be provided in the main living area beginning July of 2017.

We call this house the 'Crystal House' because of the crystals found in the foyer and scattered around the yard.

The house is in Kailua-Kona about 2 miles south of the main part of town with many restaurants and shops. Kailua-Kona is the main tourist spot on The Big Island. It is on the sunny side of the island (as opposed to Hilo which is on the rainy side). It is 80-85 degrees and sunny almost every day of the year in Kona. Kailua-Kona is on the coastline of the island. The Big Island is a magical place to visit. It's easier to understand this magic once you come, since a lot of this has to do with the 'feeling' many people get while on the island.

Luxury! Magnificent! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home is awesome! The ocean views are spectacular! My family of 5 - including me and my husband, our 2 young adult sons (ages 24 and 21) and our teenage daughter (age 15), totally enjoyed our stay at the Crystal House. It was perfect for having great family time! There was enough room for us to spread out and have alone time - with a deck off the Master Bedroom when I wanted to read alone, and a deck off the garden bedrooms when the young adults wanted privacy for phone calls. We had such great family moments - playing family games of basketball in the pool; games of scrabble on the lanai; and having conversations in the hot tub. The kitchen has everything that you need! Most importantly, the house is so convenient for activities in Kona - just a short drive to the airport, to dining, for jet skiing and water activities. We had an awesome time!!!

Also, the owners provide so much information before you arrive which is very useful for planning your visit to Kona.

Highly Recommended!!!! Thanks, Laurie and Jacob, for sharing your home in paradise!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, it's much cooler up here than being close to the beach and they have air conditioning which is also nice . It's also great to go swimming whenever you want day or night. The views and sunsets are beautiful . We had a couple of hiccups but Laurie and Jacob were very attentive and right there when we needed anything . I would rent this place again for sure . It's very quiet and relaxing . Thank you Jacob and Laurie for all your help and for making this vacation a paradise for our family .

Crystal House highly recommended for families

  • 5 of 5

This was the third stay at the Crystal House for my kids and me. Our stay was just perfect for us so we will be back! The kids enjoyed the pool and the pool toys every day while I enjoyed watching them and the view from the deck. The hot tub was always a nice way to end the day.

The information packet was very helpful and appreciated. The Crystal House is very well taken care of and even includes movies and board games if the kids ever get tired of the pool.

Sleeping in the master bedroom was just perfect for this Mom. The bed is very comfortable and faces the ocean. My day always started with a cup of coffee on the bedroom lanai admiring the stunning view of the ocean.

We highly recommend the Crystal House!

Wonderful place to stay. All of us - grandparents, parents and children had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was even better than the photos. The owner's information packet was very helpful. We spent most of our time when we were at the house and not sleeping on the deck enjoying the quiet, the breezes and the view. The pool was a big hit with all. Very nice to come back to after our snorkeling and sightseeing. The house is very well taken care of. It had everything we needed. We all highly recommend a stay at the Crystal House!

Stunning home with all the amenities we needed to enjoy the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our time at the Crystal House - even though the Big Island has so much to explore and we spent our days attempting to see as much as possible, it was wonderful to have a refuge like the Crystal House to return to each night as opposed to a hotel room. We absolutely would stay again. Our family includes an 18-month old and a 5-year old and it was so great to have all the equipment needed to deal with them at our fingertips (pack and play, high chair, tons of toys, a whole play area set up in the garage, etc.). The deck/pool/hot tub/grounds are stunning and we very much enjoyed taking a refreshing dip every night after long days of adventures across the island. The location is great for convenience to airport, downtown Kailua-Kona, grocery stores and just about everything else on the Kona side of the island. The house itself is beautifully decorated and inviting in every way...it feels like home after just a short time. The master suite is top-notch and the extra bedrooms are perfect if you have a bigger crew. Our only complaint is that our 5 days went way too fast.

Getting around the Big Island is very simple since there is (pretty much) one highway going around the whole island. Check out the map of the island included in our photos. It's an excellent idea to get the book 'Hawaii The Big Island Revealed' before your visit.

SIMPLE BIG ISLAND VACATION PLAN OF MUST DO's: (see more details below)

1. Have Breakfast and coffee at Lava Java downtown 75-5799 Alii Drive- 327-2161 You may want to start every morning this way... Our # 1 'MUST DO'.

2. Lunch at The Coffee Shack. The view is 'wow'. (11 miles south on highway 11. (808) 328-9555)

3. Go to Huggo's for a fantastic dinner and view of the ocean followed by Huggo's on the Rocks (next door). downtown Kailua-Kona. . 808 329-1493. Needs reservation for Huggo's. Alii Drive, right of Royal Kona Resort.

4. Have Drinks at The Kona Inn- downtown on the water- Go for the view and the Mai Tai's. 75-5744 Alii Dr, 329-4010

5. Go to Hawi and eat at the Bamboo Restaurant for a very Hawaiian experience. Shop Hawi then go to Polulu Point (see more below).

6. Go Zip-Lining near Hawi!

7. Do the Sea Quest snorkeling and Cave trip boat tour with Captain Liam (2 miles from the house).

8. Drive to Volcano National Park (dont miss the Chain of Craters Road) and have lunch at Cafe Ono.

9. Drive to Hilo and see the Botanical Gardens, see Akaka Falls and eat at the 50's restaurant on the way.

14. Consider para-sailing and Jet-skiing in close by downtown Kailua-Kona.

See below for much much more!

BEST BOOK TO GET: 'Hawaii The Big Island Revealed' (the blue book)- hands down.

The house offers a solar heated pool, an outdoor hot tub plus a jacuzzi in the master bath, an extensive video collection, and some toys.

We have boogie boards, surf boards, towels, beach chairs, coolers etc etc. Feel free to use anything.

A fantastic WALKING PATH is just up the street- (the Walua trail is 3 blocks up the hill to the right). This is a historic trail where donkeys used to deliver goods to this town. It is a fairly flat trail (hard to find in a hilly town like Kailua-Kona) and if you look you'll see mile markers, so you will know how long you've walked.

The house is close to one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island (Kahalu'u Beach Park), one of the best surfing spots (Lyman's Beach which you can see from the master bedroom), 'Magic' Sands Beach (the beach is there... then it's 'not' there!) and Keauhou Bay (that offers many water activities- we love Sea Quest fast boat snorkeling and cave tours 329-7238 and dolphin excurions (see below for much more). In downtown Kona / Alii Drive you can sign up for parasailing, kayaking and jet-skiing.

.....Ask Lauri for the complete list of activities and restaurants- also included in our guest book in the house!
