This beautifully restored oceanfront home has all the charm of yesteryear with the added conveniences and sustainability of today. Offered as a vacation rental for the first time in 2013, the view and location are spectacular. In 2014, The Guardian newspaper listed Kona Moana Hale as one of the Top Beach Houses in the World. Completely renovated, this updated home has hardwood floors, granite countertops, koa cabinets, stainless steel appliances, air conditioning, iHome docking stations, Bose outdoor speakers with Bluetooth receiver (to pair your own devices and play music) with connections for Android and Apple products, iTouch pre-loaded with various Hawaiian music, wireless internet, full size washer/dryer, brand new California king bedroom set, luxurious bedding, hdtv plasma in great room and bedroom, gas bbq, Tiki Hut for afternoon drinks, teak lounges, etc etc. All lights are on dimmers so you can create your own environment and mood. There's even an indoor switch to light up the water at night to create a spectacular view!
Ideally located overlooking Kahaluu Beach, you are within feet of the best snorkeling and surfing on the island. (If you do surf or stand up paddleboard, you can paddle straight out and be in the break in less than 5 minutes.) Dolphin sightings are quite common. During winter months, whales can be seen daily as they swim by.
Uniquely situated on a 9000 sq ft oceanfront lot, this home is a one-of-a-kind. You will experience complete privacy with expansive views up and down the coast. (We also own the property next door where you are free to pick papayas, bananas, etc. or just sit and watch the sunset.) While there is so much to do on the Big Island, you will have a difficult time pulling yourself away from your home and the incredible views and sounds of the ocean. You will find this special place to be relaxing, rejuvenating and inspiring.
Upon arrival you will be provided with tropical flower arrangements, kona coffee, fresh fruit, homemade banana bread, etc. For bookings exceeding 14 days, a 'freshen up' cleaning will be arranged midway through your stay at no additional charge.
Married over 20 years, we share the passion for travel and exploration. We own a business in California and Australia, and try to spend as much time as possible at this special home in Hawaii.

We have been blessed to have traveled to many parts of the world and have not found a property or location as special as this one. Extensive renovation has been done to make this home both luxurious and sustainable. Expansive panoramic views and the gentle sounds of the ocean create a very unique setting unmatched by anything we have seen.
You will not find a home as close to the water as this one! The sights and sounds of the ocean are mesmerizing. From the large lanai and deck you can watch surfers, paddle boarders and boogie boarders or jump in the water and experience some of the best snorkeling on the globe. Lighting up the water at night makes for a spectacular view.
We just left Kona Moana Hale yesterday. We had a great time in this beautiful and tastefully decorated home. We will surely miss the amazing sunsets, the sound of the waves and the cool ocean breeze. The home had everything we needed and more!
The fruits and goodies basket was a welcome treat. Everything you'll need for the beach (except sun screen!) has been provided - towels, chairs, snorkel sets and icebox.
It was also in the perfect location for everything we wanted to do - exploring the white, black and green sand beaches, snorkeling with the manta rays, visiting the volcanoes and eating out (but we enjoyed breakfast and dinner at the deck the most!). Even if the home was along a busy road, you can't hear any traffic noise because of the sounds of the crashing waves!
We also had a very pleasant experience dealing with Ron, the owner, when we were booking their home. He was very responsive over email, providing suggestions about the island and even calling us when we checked-in, to make sure we had everything we needed.
The Big Island is now our favorite of the Hawaiian islands and Kona Moana Hale was one of the reasons for that!
Where do I begin!
We had such an incredible time in Kona and mainly because of the oasis that is this oceanfront cottage. From the moment we walked in, we were in love. They have thought of EVERYTHING and haven't missed a single detail. Bed is super comfortable, bathrooms are great...but the lanai...this is where to BE. Our nightly ritual was to make some fresh guacamole from the wide variety of avocados on the island, open a bottle of wine and just take in all the beauty around us on the lanai.
Our favorite experience was horseback riding around Waipio Ridge and hiking through the forest reserve areas on the north side of the island. The hosts have a book with an incredible list of recommendations that we used every day we were there. Based off of their recommendations, we would find the most amazing food at the various farmers markets around the area and had the PERFECT kitchen to cook and prepare it all with the most incredible view you will ever have!
Stayed one month.......too long. I think a shorter time would leave a better feeling about this cottage. The owners were more than accommodating, but the negatives outweighed the beauty of the ocean.
Absolutely stunning. We spent most of our time on the deck, part of which is covered with dining table and comfy couch. Great care taken by the owners who have thought of everything. Comfy bed and great bathrooms. Highly recommend. Our favorite restaurants nearby were kenichi's and Huggos on the rocks. But numerous other options. Actually we preferred to cook simple dinners and enjoy the great sunsets.
We loved our stay. The house is perfect, everything you need is at hand and in pristine condition. The view and surf sounds are beautiful, soothing, and relaxing. The owner is welcoming and very accessible and helpful. Using the suggestions in the handy book of activities and restaurants at the house we found some restaurants we really enjoyed. We hope to go again very soon.
This property is located the closest to the ocean of any place we have ever rented! Our two weeks spent here were wonderful! We enjoyed watching local surfers every morning, and quite often, they used the ocean current to paddle right past the lanai to reach the waves. A pod of at least 5 dolphins swam by one day, and most days we observed yellow tang fish right below us feeding near the rocks.
The sound of ocean waves lulled us to sleep every night, which we loved.
Henry and Jason are outstanding caretakers of the home, as it is by far the most immaculate home we have ever rented! Henry was very responsive and attended to every need we had. We hope to return to this special place.

We have just returned from an amazing holiday. The oceanfront cottage is stunning with everything you need. So lucky that we got to spend 11 nights there! Spent plenty of time on the lanai watching waves, sunsets, and surfers. It's within walking distance of a great snorkelling spot and not far from town. Thank you Ron & Pam. Better than anything we could have imagined.
Ideally located overlooking Kahaluu Beach - the best surfing and snorkeling beach on the Big Island. Central to restaurants, shopping, golf, farmers markets, volcano, etc.
