4 bedroom, 4 bath, with pool, ocean views, and two lanais
About Rachel Donnell
We purchased this beautiful home so we can come together with all our families and enjoy quality time together. And of course, the kids love the pool!
Rachel Donnell purchased this House in 2013
Why Rachel Donnell chose Kailua-Kona
This house is in a great neighborhood on a corner lot. So close to town, yet has such a private feeling that you can't get with a condominium. A perfect combination!
What makes this House unique
Whether it is sitting by the pool watching the kids play or relaxing on the lanais with the beautiful ocean views, there is a true feeling of Hawaii.
We ask that you please do not smoke in the house.

An amazing stay at an Incredible Home!
Everything you read and see in the listing is true and doesn't do it justice. The home is lovely, well appointed and fully stocked for your needs. We cooked in most of the time, and the kitchen was great. Beds were comfortable and the views were fantastic, especially sunsets! We highly recommend!
Thanks Terry! Glad the kitchen worked for your cooking needs. Appreciate the recommendation :)
Great house in a great location
This is a really nice family home, well looked after and with all the amenities you could wish for to make a family stay comfortable and enjoyable. Lots of thoughtful touches, loads of pool/beach toys etc - it’s a really easy place for a family or friend group to stay. The location is also great, just a mile or so from Kailua-Kona town and with easy access to main highways, but in a quiet residential area.
What’s more, when the A/C developed a fault, Rachel could not have been more helpful in getting it speedily diagnosed and fixed, which was greatly appreciated in the summer heat!
Both the house and owner are heartily recommended.
Thanks Iain! Glad you had a good trip. I apologize again for the AC breaking while you were there. August is hot! Thanks for your patience while we got it repaired :)
We had a great time at this house even though we had some issues with the AC. Rachel called us back and even had a local number to contact if we couldn't reach her. The issue was fixed within a day. The kitchen is fully stocked, and I highly recommend going to Kona Cold Lobster for Dungeness crabs and steaming your own crabs at the house. This was the best meal we had in Kona. The only down side is that all of the tables are glass top so we had to crack our crabs very carefully. The wicker furniture is not the most comfortable but the patio furniture by the pool is, and you'll want to spend your time there anyway. This is a beautiful, spacious house that has the things that you need while on vacation and more! The welcome basket was also a great touch, and there were also some cold drinks in the frig to get us started. The grilled pineapple from the basket was delicious! Try it with cinnamon from the well stocked spice cabinet. The extra frig in the garage was great for storage and loading a cooler.
Thanks Teresa! Glad you had a good stay. Yes, great advice on going to Kona Cold Lobster. They have an amazing amount of seafood for sale! I never thought about that and the glass topped tables. I appreciate your thoughtfulness :) Hope to host you and your family again.
Beautiful home and great location
We really enjoyed our stay. The Big Island is the place to go if you want to relax and be treated like family. The house exceeded our expectations. The pictures, I feel do not due it justice. The view is incredible. The floor plan was spacious and very accommodating. The kitchen was well equipped and laid out. You would think you were at home. There were supplies, spices and condiments to use. The fridge had some drinks and alcohol (That we assumed was provided by the previous vacationers (as we did for the next guests). The garage had all kinds of beach toys to use (chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, mask & fins, etc.)
In the kitchen they have a book of does and don'ts. There is a lot of great information in there. Spend some time looking though it to help complete your true Hawaiian vacation.
The Drake Family
Thank you Scott and the Drake family! So happy you had a good vacation. We do try and provide some starter juice and beer in the garage fridge. Sometimes the flights get in late and it is nice to have waiting for you. Please come see us again!
Amazing Hawaiian getaway
Had an incredible stay at a little piece of paradise. This home has an amazing location and beautifully decorated. The home is well stocked with everything you can think of. It has so many rooms inside and out for private space but also many rooms to gather many and enjoy. Rachel is fantastic and made sure our stay was perfect. The welcoming basket of treats was so amazing after a long flight. We LOVED our stay and can’t wait to be back!!
Thank you Melanie! So glad you had a nice stay. I appreciate the great review! We would love to see you again :)
As advertised - well stocked, very comfortable.
Lots of room, nice backyard, 2 lanai’s offering sunset views. Many extras including beach chairs, umbrellas etc, along with a well supplied kitchen. Owner (Rachel) responded quickly to any questions we had. 5 minute drive to beachfront area (20 minute walk - 30 minutes uphill to get back). Overall a great experience.
Thanks Les! Glad you had a good stay. Yes, the walk up from town is not too pedestrian friendly :) Thanks for the nice review!
