About: You might think this is just another vacation home, but there's actually a story behind it...starting with our grandfather "Pop's" love of the ocean. Although he lived simply as a commercial fisherman, he and his brother saved enough money along the way for us to invest in a family home in their memory. We chose Kona Heavens because of the ocean's proximity and all of its offerings. Our family has gathered here many times since. In the spirit of Pop's generosity, we wanted to share this oasis with others; so, we decided to make it available as a rental property! We hope you create as many wonderful memories during your stay as we have. This is truly a special place that Pop would have loved. We think of him every time we visit.
Why Private Homes, Kona Heavens: Our family had visited the islands of Hawaii a few times prior to the purchase of this home, and we all agreed that the Big Island had some very unique characteristics we just couldn't ignore...and Kona was the perfect spot to blend them all together. We loved being in a quiet, secluded neighborhood away from the hubbub of the tourists, while being just minutes from attractions and shops to supply all of our needs. We have enjoyed many evenings out on the lanai barbecuing fresh fish from the nearby harbor. We love going to local beaches to swim, snorkel, and scuba dive...with so many gorgeous options for all of these activities. Downtown Kona is just minutes away, and a lovely spot to stroll, window shop and dine out. The local flavor of upper mountain towns and tropical Hilo also offer a unique cultural experience.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We had compared prices to hotels in Kona...and this was a great deal for its spaciousness and flexibility. You can stock the fridge with all of your favorite foods, have a large living space to watch DVD's or play boardgames with your family, swim 24/7 in a private, heated pool and enjoy tropical edibles right from the garden! Because we work closely with a local management company, your needs are conveniently and immediately met during your stay. The home will be spotless when you arrive and thoroughly cleaned when you depart. It's the perfect blend of quiet oasis and fun vacation spot for you and your family to enjoy. This place truly has it all!
