                      Car: Recommended

                      Our beautiful ocean-view home is located at the 300 foot elevation in a quiet neighborhood in Kailua-Kona. It is convenient to everything. By various routes, it's 5 minutes to beaches, downtown, the farmer's market, or grocery stores.

                      Partial day or day trips can be made to Kealakekua Bay, The City of Refuge, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, or Rainbow Falls.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: Aloha! My name is Kathy Doran. I am the owner of this beautiful Hawaiian vacation home. I actually bought it as my retirement home, then my daughter had children and I could not live away from my grand-babies. So, lucky you, my house is available!

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      This home has a beautiful ocean view. It is perfect for family reunions and large groups. 12 people can sleep in beds and we have futons and port-a-cribs for additional sleeping. I have a wonderful property manager. Her name is Char Noble and her phone number is 808-44three-1seven3one. Please do not call her to book this unit. She will help any of our guests though and her number is provided at the house. She is a local person, so she has many connections on the island and can help with your needs, such as a chef to cook that special meal. I don't book my property until I have shown the prospective guest the house on my website, so that you know the layout and if the house can accommodate your group. The house is located in a quiet family neighborhood. I operate a legal unit and conscientiously pay my taxes on this rental. My tax ID number is Wthree0onefive4threetwo6-zerotwo.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Some of our guest's favorite things about this house are: Enjoying the gentle way the warm tropical breezes blow through the palms. Watching the way exotic Hawaiian birds and island geckos dart about. Visiting the orchids, ginger and heliconia, misty in the morning as you stroll through the lush garden. Swimming in the clear, aquamarine solar heated pool, day or night. Having such a spacious layout that provides many opportunities for entertaining, or just for solitude. Best of all, watching for the green flash as sunset unfolds after a perfect idyllic tropical day in paradise.
