About Emmy and Bob
Aloha and Welcome to Kona Vacation Rentals. This is Emmy and Bob. We are the owners of these lovely vacation rentals in Kona. We lived in Silicon Valley California for over 25 years and worked as software engineers and entrepreneurs. We built several successful start up companies and pursued our entrepreneur dreams there. We loved living in the California Bay Area and still consider it our "Home on the Mainland". Emmy's lifelong dream has always been to live by the ocean. When we first truly memorable experience in Hawaii was the family vacation on the cruise ship that visited each of the Hawaiian islands. We fall in love with Kona, Big Island the best. There is so much to do here, with crystal clear water for snorkeling, rainforests, waterfalls, and volcanoes to explore, and mountains that almost reach the stars. We bought our first dream house in 2013, and three years later, just after our daughter graduated from high school in California in 2016. Then we moved to Kona. Besides high tech, one of Emmy’s lifelong interests has been real estate. Every destination Emmy visit, she love exploring the properties in the area. Combining our love for Hawaii and homes, now we own and manage 8 beautiful vacation rental houses. We have put much effort into every house to make them as comfortable and welcoming as your home. We use the latest technologies on the rental houses, with smart lock, amazon Alexa, comprehension customized online welcome book for each guest and much more. We are responsible and responsive to your inquiries. We live close to all of our rental houses, we are always available for our guests. We do our best to provide the best services to our guests.

Emmy and Bob purchased this House in 2015
Why Emmy and Bob chose Hōlualoa
I've always felt at home with the tropics and the ocean. The landscape and scenery of the Big Island is unparalleled with anything else. From volcanoes to waterfalls, my family's favorite part of Kailua-Kona is the snorkeling that gives you a peek into the vast and amazing ocean life. Kona, the town itself also has a great, laid-back vibe and easy access to beaches, stores, farmer's market, and restaurants.
What makes this House unique
This home is spacious and has an amazing few of the sunset from the pool and BBQ area! It's no wonder we call this home "Sunset Paradise". Not to mention, the location is perfect, just a short distance to downtown Kona as well as Magic Sands and Kahaluu Beach. We are delighted to share our home with you and we hope you make yourself at home. Enjoy your stay!

Great house for our big family reunion.
Emmy and Bob are great hosts and were very flexible, responsive and supportive throughout our vacation experience. Sunset paradise is a great house for our family reunion. We rented the house for our extended family of grand parents, parents and grand kids. The house is very clean. The large living/kitchen and pool deck overlooking the pacific was where we spent most of our time. The outdoor area was great spot to watch the sunset and lookout for the green flash!
Emmy and Bob offered a wonderful assortment of beach toys, chairs, umbrella's that we used daily to spend time at the beaches which is only 5 minutes drive to. They also offer the pack and play and the high chars for our little one.
It was a great stay at Sunset paradies and we would definitely recommend it or stay again if our travels take us back to the Big Island and Kona.
Sunset Paradise was the perfect accommodation for our family reunion. There were 10 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of room for all of us. The pool and hot tub were a definite hit with everyone and the views were spectacular. The house is very well decorated. We love the pool area. Kids had a great time there. We cannot wait to come back.
Don't sweat the small stuff
Overall this property was great! We had plenty of space for the 3 generations and 11 people that stayed. The layout is interesting but leaves ample places for people to get away or be together. The outdoor pool area is beautiful and we had some wonderful dinners out there. Bob and Emmy were great hosts as well as their partner and super responsive!
--There are some things that even with very minimal cost could be upgraded to provide a 5 star home. A new dishwasher, the soap dispenser would not open and we messed with this multiple times. It needs a new spring. Not all fans worked in the front room and back rooms. Actually we had kids staying in the bunk room and the fan did not work and Emmy and Bob replaced the entire fan the next day. However there are still fans in the front room not working. New sheets on the beds. The sheets seem to be extra large sheets for very small mattresses. Our whole family thought the beds were comfy but they are super small and after the first night the sheets are all bunched up everywhere. The carpet is pretty worn. It could stand a good cleaning or to be replaced. A new hot tub cover. The hot tub was super cloudy the entire week. Bob and Emmy came out and drained some water and put fresh water in there. They blamed it on the chlorine however by the end of the week we noticed the hot tub cover is falling apart underneath into the water. My sister found pieces of it in her suit after getting out. Super easy fix. A new grill. After working on the grill for 20 minutes and messing with the cords we finally got the grill lit. There wasn't a lighter in the house to light it manually but Emmy and Bob came over within 20 minutes to provide a lighter. But we had this same problem the next night. There were 2 grills outside and neither worked well.
--Just to note a few items: the driveway is steep, like many driveways in Kona. I might have had nightmares of roads like Kona but they are doable. The home has lots of stairs. Stairs to every room. There was some cool rope lighting in the front room that looked very nice however that stopped working on the last days of our trip and wouldn't come on even after resetting the breaker. The hot water was fickle. We couldn't figure out when it would be hot and when it wasn't. The clock on the wall in the nook kept "Hawaii Time" :) Even after replacing the battery, it slowly lost time.
--Truly a nice place though, just very small items. Enjoyed!!!!
Fantastic family vacation rental
We stayed at this amazing home and were more than impressed with what we found here! First of all, the views go ON and ON and ON! The great view in the pool area (and the living room/kitchen that faces the pool/ocean views). We cooked every night and morning, and the kitchen was set up perfectly for our large group needs. The extra large table outside was FANTASTIC for group meals. The living room was so comfy for hanging out in the mornings with lots of seating options. Plenty of parking for our two cars. Our kids LOVED the pool! Simply put..we loved the house so much we hardly wanted to leave! Great trip! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!
This place was divine!
This place was divine! The house was perfect --- view, beds, pool, deck, kitchen, washer/dryer, grill. We loved it. Emmy was a gem--on the first day I accidental broke the screen door and she had it repaired within 24 hours. Best host ever! We were a group of 12 adults that had gone to school vacation together. Perfect for a reunion although easily could accommodate families too. Easy access to town, north and south beaches, shopping. even though 10 min from beach-- the ocean view and stunning sunsets made us feel ocean ecstatic! Would rent again in a heartbeat!
Wow Amazing view
Our first night, the smoke alarm beeped all night and Bob came over within an hour with batteries to fix it, even though we were willing to go get batteries and do it ourselves. The inset grill did not work but they had one there to the side to use. The outside space was amazing. Truly as great as the photos! Loved the palm trees! The home was big and the house has everything we needed. The laundry room was a plus and the amount of shower and beach towels was great.
A few down falls were that there were no comforters on the beds, only sheets. The only room with comforters was the room with the two twin beds. We found some blankets around but we were still cold in the middle of the night. The floors were pretty sticky when we came. We did not know if it was spilled drinks from the last people but after time it went away and I think it was just the floor cleaning solution. Both upstairs toilets would stay running unless you remembered to push the handles up. I think the upstairs showers run on the solar panels, in the mornings the showers were very cold and would not warm up. We showered in the large downstairs bathroom which got hard waiting in line for your turn. The beds are very cheap and squeak very bad. They are like pull out couch beds. Comfortable enough to sleep for most, but don't move around on them. The house was fairly clean but the carpet was nasty. Especially the stairs. The driveway is very steep! We had big cars and they would not fit in the garage. There is a tiny parking space up top that the cars kind of fit on. Going up and down the driveway, very slow, the cars would always bottom out! Even walking down the driveway was hard.
All in all: we loved our trip but if a few minor things were fixed / communicated, it would have made the house five stars for sure.
Sunset Paradise is about 2 miles 5 minutes drive from Magic Sands beach and Kahaluu State park beach.
Sunset Paradise is about 2 miles from downtown Kona, where there are many restaurants, and shops, including big department stores. Kona is a cruise ship destination, with a large cruise ship arriving every Wednesday. You can arrange any kind of activity there, including surfing lessons, horse back riding, and even a helicopter tour of the volcanoes.
