Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Kona Coast - Kona Mountain Home

Have an action packed day in the sun, then come home to cool & quiet Kaloko

Kona Mountain Home is a unique plantation style estate located on 3 acres on the slopes of Hualalai above Kailua-Kona. It is in Hawaii's serene cloud forest and is walking distance from hike/bike/horseback riding trails through the Honuaula Forest Reserve. Upstairs the home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, an open kitchen/dining/living area, fireplace, a private lanai off a guest bedroom, and an expansive lanai with access from kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. Downstairs is a large open deck with a Hot Spot hot tub, a BBQ grill, and workout/game room. A separate detached bedroom adds a Second Master Bedroom to the home. There 2 more beds (King & Queen Sofa Bed), a sitting room, outdoor/indoor shower, and lanai.

Kona Mountain Home allows for full days between guests - this gives our staff a chance to make sure the home is in perfect condition for your arrival, and it gives you a later check out/earlier check in than most properties. Check Out is now 12 pm and Check In is 2 pm.

Our family's dream came true and we hope to share this piece of paradise with you.

Some of our onsite adventure amenities are: Kayaks, Paddle Boards, Beginner Surf Board, Body Boards, Beach towels, Snorkel Gear, Coolers, Water Coolers, Chairs, & Shade Canopies. Through out KMH you will enjoy unique touches that make our home special, and you will feel the comfort that only quality details can give.

About Laura Weaver

My family and business reside in Austin, TX... but our hearts are always in Kona, HI. We have loved the island and the waters that surround it for decades. When we visit our 'piece of paradise' we love to snorkel, paddle board, hike, cliff jump, and catch up with our good friends living on the rock.

Laura Weaver purchased this house in 2011

Why Laura Weaver chose Kona Coast

Kona Mountain Home and Cottage is very special... central to Kailua-Kona, easy access to all North and South Beaches, yet so remote the birds are louder than any vehicle traffic. KMH is nestled in the eco-minded development of Kaloko and the forest reserves on the slopes of Hualalai.

What makes this house unique

More than your run of the mill vacation rental... explore the island like a local. Kayaks and 6 person Hot Tub, Paddle and Surf Boards, Beach chairs and Shade canopies, Coolers and Snorkel gear... all for your use and enjoyment. Play, Explore, Relax @ Kona Mountain Home.

Fantastic, spacious home in the heart of Kona mountain

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay (several adults, 1 toddler and 1 infant) at the Kona Mountain Home. The main home and cottage were incredibly spacious and full of creature comforts (see extensive list of amenities which, as it turns out, is not everything!). The property is also beautifully and thoughtfully maintained. The home is a short 10 minute drive from Target, Walmart, Costco so we stocked up a bunch of groceries and enjoyed cooking at home several days.

Laura was incredibly responsive before, during, and after our stay. We did not have to call the property manager for any assistance during upon our arrival he contacted us to assure us that he was available (thank you!). If we return to Kona with a similarly sized clan (of 10), we'd definitely stay here again.

PS. Make sure to leave a note from your stay in the shared guest journal--such a charming remnant of the many memories shared in the beautiful home!

Amazing stay in a gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this property for 12 days this February. Our party consisted of myself, two teens and my parents. The separate cottage was a big plus for my parents to have their own space, and the main house was spectacular. Beautiful furnishings and an amazing layout... with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The kitchen was well stocked with all utensils, dishes, gadgets etc. and the garage below had everything we needed to get out and enjoy the island. Laura and Gudrun the property manager were very accomodating and helpful. The location of the property was gorgeous with amazing views and was very refreshing to return to the slightly cooler temperatures after our days on the beach. We had easy access to shopping, Kona and lots of beaches, but felt like we had the island to ourselves when we arrived home each evening. The grounds were well kept and our kids enjoyed meeting Woody the sheep, along with a Chameleon, some Geckos and a stick bug to name a few critters we found outside. The convection setting on the oven did not work but the oven itself worked fine... other than that everything was great! All in all I cannot say enough about how amazing this place was... we will be back for sure!!

Even better in person!

  • 5 of 5

This breathtaking property is immaculately kept, has multiple spectacular views, and every kitchen amenity you can imagine. From the lanai, you can view the expansive grounds, listen to birds, watch the sunset, and even see the ocean. Walking the well maintained grounds is like walking in a tropical paradise. The home offers ample space and storage for a large family or group with enough privacy and comfort for all. Although we felt very far away from it all, the town, airport, and shopping were very convenient. In addition, the mountain location made it much cooler than the town below, and we hiked a beautiful trail nearby. We appreciated the hot tub, barbecue, beach equipment and even the children's toys. The owner and property manager were extremely helpful with the accomodations and local information, and professional beyond all expectations.

Beautiful Property & Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. It had everything a vacationer could ask for. We cooked, baked and barbecued. The view was fantastic and the property was obviously well cared for, not to mention the selection of equipment that was available to us for use. We loved the fact that the mornings were so beautiful at the house and then we head to the beaches where it was much hotter returning to the house at the end of the day to much cooler temps. It was a joy. The owners were a dream to work with and were very helpful in all respects. We would love to come back for a repeat visit should the opportunity present itself. It was a truly fantastic visit made much easier by renting this house. I have already mentioned to friends and family when they asked about our vacation. Thanks Laura you were a delight to work with.

KMH, May 2015

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our stay at KMH. The house was spacious, comfortable, and beautiful. We enjoyed the lanai off of the kitchen/living room immensely, spending much of our time, when at the house, on the lanai. Many in our family enjoyed the jacuzzi both in the morning and the evening. The beds were comfortable, and having 2 sets of washers/dryers really helped as we had a total of 9 people staying at the house and cottage. It was so wonderful to spend the day at the beach in 90 degree temps, and then head up to the house where the temp was usually 20 degrees cooler. We fixed most of our meals at the house, and everything we needed was there, including a stand mixer that we used for making pizza dough. We will definitely stay at the KMH the next time we go to the Big Island-highly recommended!
