Aloha and welcome to the Big Island. We are thankful to Hawaii and its peoples for allowing us to work and play on this great island.

Kona Coast Vacations manages over 200 condos, homes and estates along the leeward (dry and sunny) side of the Big Island ( this island is named Hawaii, same name as the State). We are located right in Kailua Kona which is about 10 minutes south of the KOA (Kona) international airport. Most people include Kailua Kona, Keauhou, Kahaluu, and Holualoa, under the umbrella of the name Kona. We also have team members living near the resort area ( about 25 minutes north of the airport) which include Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, Hali'i Kai, Waikoloa Beach Resort (near the coast), Waikoloa Village (up mountain, about 15 minutes from the coast), etc.

Our team of inspectors check the property before your arrival, after you depart, and we inspect the cleaners. If something is amiss, please let us know immediately on arrival and we will address your concerns ASAP. We are open seven days a week to assist guests and owners. We offer a concierge service, we have maps and recommendations on our web site and are here to answer your questions.

Kona Coast Vacations has been rated excellent by Trip Advisor in 2013 and 2014, and it appears Trip Advisor only offers ratings now, and we are sitting at 4.5/5.0 based on all the reviews since 2009. We were voted the "Best Vacation Rental Agency" for 2015 and 2016- Best of Hawai'i - Lei Niho Palaoa Awards. We credit these great ratings to our reservations, maintenance and inspection team. Whether you stay with us or with another host, we hope you enjoy the Big Island of Hawaii and experience the Aloha Spirit.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family rented Puuawai Alii Place for a week in January and it was the perfect place to stay. The house is clean, spacious, and very well appointed. Everything you need, from plates to grill tools to toilet paper, is provided. They have both a gas and a charcoal grill which we made liberal use of. There's no AC, but we didn't need it. The house stays nice and cool at night. For those used to traveling in the Caribbean, there are no bugs/mites/mosquitos to worry about. The beds are all large and extremely comfortable. The bathrooms are nice and clean and enormous as well. The pool is gorgeous. It isn't heated, which is common in Hawaii, but even in January the water was in the low 80 degrees. If you make good use of the solar pool cover to trap in heat at night it stays nice and warm. The sunset views from the house are incredible. We enjoyed them every night of our stay. The neighborhood around the house is nice and quiet. Everything you need can be gotten at the grocery stores in Kona, just over 10 minutes away. Overall this was a stellar place to stay. I daresay we'll be back--it was that good.

Reviewer Comments:

A beautiful home with a magnificent view. Very spacious for our family reunion of seven people. Wonderful salt-water pool, private, and in a quiet neighborhood. Best stocked kitchen we have ever used. Loved every aspect of it except the openness of the home allows sound to carry to all parts of the house making it harder for our 18 month old to sleep and nap.

Reviewer Comments:

This house was a perfect size for my husband and I, our 3 children and my mother-n-law. We liked that the house was on a private street and neighbors were somewhat far away. Our kids loved the pool! All the amenities the house came with were fantastic and we really felt like we were at home. Although overall the property was clean and maintained, I do believe the bathrooms and showers could use a deep, deep cleaning and scrubbing. Besides the pool, the lanai on the 2nd floor was our favorite part of the house. We had most of our meals outside and took advantage of the view and watching the sunset. We had a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for the comments. The cleaning companies usually do a great job. However, we will review this with the cleaning company immediately. We do provide the cleaning company's number in all of our properties so our guests can contact them directly if something is amiss on arrival, and we do follow up with a phone call the day after arrival to ensure everyone is happy. We are thrilled you enjoyed the other parts of the home and had a wonderful time.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 days in this house. It was the perfect size for our family of 4 and a welcome retreat after several days on Waikiki. The house is gorgeous, on a quiet street, and has an amazing view of the ocean and sunset. We loved sitting on the lanai! The pool was very nice and we appreciated all the amenities in the house (extra towels, soap, laundry detergent). The house is a good location on the Kona side. You definitely need a car, preferably 4-wheel drive, to get around the island. We really did not want to leave! One thing, the house is not air conditioned, which was fine because we opened all the windows and there was a nice breeze every day. My sons were quite taken with the geckos! Thank you for an amazing vacation! We can't wait to come back!

Reviewer Comments:

Almost perfect stay.The living room ceiling fan did not work nor did the bathtub plugs work. The rental co.called the next day to check and see if everything was okay. We did let them know about the problems and by the time we returned home from our activities the fan had a new switch and the tub had a new plug. It was a little too small but we made it work. We were sad to leave at the end of the week.The only downside side was the weather was just a little to cool to enjoy the pool.A hot tub would have been nice. Close to the Kapalua beach (9 min)with excellent snorkeling. Plenty of extra beach towels,chairs , umbrella, boogie boards,& snorkling equipment. Would definitely love to return to this home. Would recommend 4 wheel drive vehicle to be able to visit the secluded hard to get to beaches. P.S the beds are very comfortable.
