mark purchased this house in 2013

Why mark chose Kailua-Kona

We fell in love with Kona Hale Kai Alii Pool Spa immediately. We found this home and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with friends and family. Capt Mark Trivisonno

What makes this house unique

Private swimming pool and spa and 180 degree views from most rooms, spectacular sunsets, 2 minute walk to Honls Beach for surfing and snorkeling or a picnic lunch and a short walk to Historic downtown Kailua-Kona. This home is right in front of the Ironman turn-around buoy where spinner dolphins often congregate. You will see whales in season and many other ocean species. Comfortable Hawaiian living at it's best! All 3 upstairs bedrooms have 180 degree Views with Private Lanais. Tradewinds flow through this house beautifully.

Ideal Kona Beach House and location !

  • 5 of 5

How to summarize an amazing 10 day stay ? Well to begin with, Capt. Mark was very helpful assisting us and assuring us of our dates and details . But wow when you walk through the front door of this lovely Kona beach home , you instantly feel the aloha and your jaw drops for that 'Ahhhhh' feeling we all seek on a beach house vacation. There simply can't be a better on-the-water experience in a beach home vacation rental. The sound of the ocean is so relaxing and it's all right there ! Literally right there, you are on the water. The home has every comfort and amenity one could want. We were a large family group of grandparents , kids and grandkids (teens). We saw dolphins from the deck and patio nearly every morning along with whales and sunsets to die for. The layout of the home is great for a family or group and the many decks were very enjoyable and relaxing. Kitchen has everything you could want and is very updated and new. Plenty of seating all around and did I mention the hot tub and pool?!! While you watch the waves come in you are enjoying the hot tub and pool. I think the biggest compliment to the house is, as we planned activities and day trips we made sure there was going to be ample time to just 'be at home' because the house is such that you simply do not want to leave it. Also great proximity to town, easily walkable and we did walk many times. Look forward to returning soon Capt Mark! Thanks for everything ! Mahalo

Unbelievable home in a stunning location! Photos only provide a glimpse of what this home offers.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 spent 9 amazing days in Mark’s Kona home, which was definitely not long enough. The moment we walked through the front doors to the stunning sight of the ocean waves splashing into the gorgeous pool, we knew we were in the best home in Kona! The living room, dining room and kitchen flow onto the lanai and pool areas and reflect an island vibe...from the rattan furnishings to the soothing choice of wall colors and playful art, it makes you feel welcome.

We hadn’t planned to dine in for all our dinners, but the kitchen was well stocked with cookware and staples (plus our son and wife are amazing cooks) so we enjoyed dinners at home, eating at the large outdoor table and thoroughly enjoying the warm evenings and beautiful setting.

We had busy days filled with snorkeling, parasailing, beach combing and exploring in our 4 wheel drive vehicles but made a point of being home each day by 5:30 ish so we could take pictures of the gorgeous sunsets and help with meal prep.

After dinner we grabbed flashlights to check on the resident eels! Prehistoric looking creatures who have an appetite for bits of leftover poke.

We had the pleasure of seeing whales, dolphins, turtles, black crabs, sea urchins, sea slugs and many of the same fish that we saw while snorkeling-all from the back patios.

I could go on and on even more, but then Mark’s house will always be booked and I might have to wait too long for a return adventure!

Perfect Oceanfront Holiday

  • 5 of 5

House was amazing, lots of room for the whole family! We stayed for a week, and even as a family of 8 everyone had their own space. All the rooms were nicely decorated and beds were extremely comfortable. Kids loved watching the fish, dolphins and eels from the pool deck everyday, and loved when the water would splash into the pool. Having the pool and hot tub were great after a day of exploring. House was a great home base for travelling the big island. We did a full island circle tour and loved visiting the volcano and all the nearby beaches. The kitchen is set-up well and we enjoyed many family dinners on the patio, where we would have nightly sunset photo competitions. House is close enough to downtown, that you can walk to shops and restaurants as well. We loved our stay and hope to return one day! Mahalo

A small slice of paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the front door, when our jaws hit the floor at the incredible view, until we grudgingly packed up to leave, we were in paradise! The house is just as pictured and I cannot say enough about the view. Going to sleep at night with the doors wide open, to the sound of the waves and the smell of the sea was just what the doctor ordered. My kids, 5 & 7, never wanted to leave the house. The days were spent in the pool and hot tub and just enjoying each other. The location is excellent! We walked to the Royal Kona Resort and attended a great luau and could easily have walked to town. Parking is bonus - an actual driveway that fits two+ vehicles and direct easy access to Alii Drive. We've been to the Big Island 3 times in the past 2 years and we would DEFINITELY return to this house due to the set up, the view , the kitchen, the parking and the great host Cap't Mark.. Cant say enough - worth every dollar and cant wait to return!

What a great place! Great location, great amenities, a very special house that felt like home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group, which included our grown children and spouses, as well as my mother and Aunt (who stayed just across the street), concluded that this was the best vacation ever! A huge part of that was this property. Large and comfy, it was a natural gathering spot, with an incredible oceanside setting. We spent every available moment on the huge Lanai, watching and listening to the waves lapping up next to the beautiful pool, with a cool ocean breeze in our face! In addition to the porpoises swimming out in the bay, a favorite activity every day was checking out the tidal pools, which could be safely observed from the deck of the swimming pool! Many colorful reef fish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, small to medium sized eels, lots of little crabs, etc., all observed by taking a careful look into the water. I'm sure none of the nearby properties can match this oceanside setting! The location is close to downtown (easily walkable), but far enough away to avoid the occasional crowds. To celebrate a birthday, we had a local chef, Timothy James, and a local musician, Kalima, come to the house for a very special evening! Fine dining, drinks, great music and dancing, all on the best oceanside setting!

We had originally thought about doing more of an island hopping vacation, but are so glad we chose to stay here for all 10 days. There is so much to see and do, for all three generations of our group, on the big island, that we wish we had another couple weeks to stay! Our thanks to Capt. Mark, a most attentive and concerned owner, who did everything to make sure we were happy! I could go on and on, but I'll close by saying that I can't imagine staying anywhere else on our return trip to Kona!!
