"The outdoor shower is fabulous!"

"Comfortable furniture, quiet, wave sounds, spectacular sunsets on the ocean…..this place has real soul."

"The gentle rhythmic sounds of the rolling surf are calming to me as I sit on the large lanai, feeling the trade winds carry the scent of the plumeria blossoms over the well manicured lawn bathing me in the aloha spirit of the Hawaiian Islands."

4th of July awesomeness!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six very much enjoyed our stay at the property! We’ve been to Kona many times and the location is perfect.

The sliding panel doors were a bit heavy, but absolutely worth the reward to have an open view. We didn’t have any problems with the water and enjoyed the outdoor shower everyday. The beach chairs, towels, yard games, and fast internet were all very helpful to make us feel right at home.

The view is spectacular and we had the best view all of Kona for the fireworks over the bay. Beware that island bugs and critters do make appearances, but it is all a part of island life. We appreciated the well stocked home with detergent, toiletries, and paper products. The beds were comfortable and the place was very clean.

Only 2 issues we had were pretty solvable on our own. First issue was we had to turn off the motion light, which went on every few seconds with the gentle breeze that was blowing - it shined right into the master. Second was figuring how to lock the sliding doors from the inside. We managed but a helpful hint would have been great!

We will definitely base our next stay on the availability of this property!

Great View and Location

  • 4 of 5

My family of six, ranging in ages from 3 y/o to 70, all enjoyed our five-days at Honl's Beach Hale. I’m posting a 4-star review, as a balance between 5-stars for location and view, and 3-stars for amenities.


-The location, and oceanfront view, just cannot be beat. Most in our group could walk to downtown Kona in 15 minutes, and Honl’s beach is three houses down.

-The view from the dining table on the lanai was better than any of the waterfront restaurants, so we took advantage of many take-out meals, and sandwiches/salads from the grocery store.

-The outdoor shower was great … we never used the indoor showers.


-Six people generate a lot of dishes, even when no meals were cooked. We missed having a dishwasher!

-The hot water was set on a timer, which we didn’t notice till we came home at 9:00 pm (wet and cold, from the manta ray dive) and there was no hot water. The rental agent responded in a timely manner, but I wish we’d known about this, in advance.

-Opening and closing the sliding "walls" to the house took considerable effort. I could not get in or out, by myself. .. and, I'm certainly not frail!

A fun and beautiful place to stay in Kona!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the House. The views are incredible!! The house was spacious enough to accomdate our family of 5 plus 2 visitors we brought with us. We enjoyed it so much that we were sad to turn in the keys when we left and wished we were back in the house when we got into our hotel in Hilo. It was nice to be able to walk a few blocks down to get dinner or ice cream. From the house we could see dolphins, people parasailing, paddle canoes, and gorgeous sunsets. Wish we were still there! ❤️

The perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8 nights with our two kids (12 and 13) and this was the perfect base. The house is right on the ocean and all the shared space - kitchen, dining room, living room, outdoor shower, lawn and patio are right on the ocean. While it's not a beach (it's rock/lava), there is a beach two doors down. The waves and the ocean breeze are right in front of you every minute you're not out touring the island. Forget making reservations at expensive restaurants with an ocean view. There is no nicer sunset view than the one from the dining room table of this house. Make dinner or eat take out in your outdoor dining room with a view of the sunset and surfers any night you want! The kitchen has everything you'll need. There's a gas grill as well.

There are beach towels for your use, binoculars, and a cooler for your day trips. There's reliable, fast WIFI if you need it and two large, flat screen tvs (though why watch TV when you can watch the ocean?)

There isn't any air conditioning, but we found we didn't miss it unless we were in the house mid-day, but we weren't often home then - out doing activities mostly. At night the breeze and the fans cooled the place off plenty to sleep comfortably.

We all enjoyed the outdoor shower. I don't think we showered inside the house once.

There's a washer and dryer, so don't bother overpacking.

I would stay here again and highly recommend it as a perfect place to use as a base to explore the whole island, knowing that when you get back to the place you're sleeping, it's just as great as al the places and things you may have seen while you were out. Loved it!

Oceanfront bungalow close to town

  • 4 of 5

Small house with everything we could need, close to white sand beach and Kona village.

Bbq'd and cooked every day made this the perfect hang out close to local beach. Then a walk downtown for drinks, music and dancing in the evening.
