Honaunau house description

Hele Mai! Come and get away to our cozy country home with an amazing 180 degree coastline sunset view. Nestled in the mountains this home has unobstructed coastline views. It is very private and on a 5-acre lot with a large yard, in Honaunau overlooking the coastline from the City of Refuge to Kealakekua Bay. The lanai with awesome views is a great place to watch the sunset, and sip your morning coffee.

Our 3-bedroom home sleeps 5-6, and is furnished with touches of the tropics. The landscaping is very tropical with many varieties of native Hawaiian and other plants including, Palms, Hibiscus, Orchids, Mango, Oranges, Avocados, Papaya and much more (you are welcome to pick the fruit in season when it ripens). Coffee and macadamia nut trees abound. Wild turkeys roam the property. The house is situated on a hill to offer you a spectacular view of Kealakekua Bay; with cool breezes throughout the day and night (it is especially cool at night). Listen to the sounds of country living in this peaceful setting that is a great place to relax. The kitchen is fully equipped so you will feel at home. A washer and dryer is situated outside for your convenience.

The City of Refuge and Honaunau Beach are located approximately 4 miles away. Local stores, restaurants and shops are nearby.

            The house is in a beautiful location with amazing views of the ocean. It worked perfectly for our large family vacation. The house is safe for young kids and includes toys and a yard for running around. It was a great jumping off point for exploring the Kona side of the island. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return sometime in the future.

            2/16/2013 - We cannot thank you enough for sharing this beautiful tranquil place with us. We had the most AMAZING time there. This home just speaks the "mana" of the surrounding area. We felt so comfortable there that it was hard to leave on the final day. The beautiful grounds surrounding the home just called us to come out and explore at every opportunity and the sunsets at the end of each day were spectacular, to say the least. If you want a getaway to just spend quality time with loved ones without the hustle/bustle of resorts then this is the place!! We found our little slice of heaven here and will definitely be returning someday soon! Our heartfelt Mahalos for a memorable time!!!

            This was our fifth visit to the Big Island and our first time staying in Honaunau. Love the location, so close to my 2 favorite places on the island- Kealakekua Bay and the Place of Refuge. The views from the lanai were incredible and the home was very comfortable and quiet. My sons loved running around the property and also playing with Zeus the dog! I really recommend this home especially if you want to stay away from the touristy areas and have a feel of Hawaiian country life. So peaceful and relaxing! Thank you for sharing your family home. Mahalo!

            This was our 2nd stay at this property - both times in December with kids ages 7 and 9. The house is very clean on a great piece of land on the slopes above the ocean. The large lanai offers a 180 degree view from City of Refuge on the left to Kealakekua Bay on the right. Mornings are beautiful and the sunsets are amazing. The property description is very accurate. Our kids enjoyed exploring the large property with its local plants. Diane, the owner, is very good to work with and even put up a Christmas tree for the kids. Our favorite activities were snorkeling at Kahaluu Beach Park and barbecuing at night at the park on the south side of City of Refuge. We hope to visit again.

            We had a great family gathering in Honaunau. The location was terrific for us as it was close to family we came to see but also to newly restored Manini Beach, Kealakekua Bay, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau, Painted Church, and several other favorite spots on the Big Island. We were able to travel north or south with ease and found much relaxation on the big lanai and yard. We definitely enjoyed the fruit trees, as well as all the flora and fauna the property had to offer. We loved having turkeys over for breakfast and coqui as guests in the evenings. Shopping and restaurants were handy yet the rural atmosphere was far enough from the bustle of Kona Town but not so far to keep us from enjoying some of what town had to offer. We'd come back in a heartbeat to enjoy it all over again.

            We enjoyed our stay at this home, and found it to be clean, well-maintained and very comfortable for our family (83 year old grandmother, 11 year old son, my husband and I). The view from the lanai was much better than even described! To wake up to the view of the mountain each morning from our bedroom window and to be able to enjoy our coffee and breakfast on the lanai each morning was such a treat! The space of the yard was great for our 11 year old son to run around and explore. We appreciated being away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist area and found the location to be very convenient. The owners answered our questions very quickly and were very friendly. They recommended places to visit on the island, and as this was our first trip to the Big Island, we were happy for the recommendations! The Place of Refuge was very close and certainly one of our favourite places to visit along with the volcanoe! Our entire family enjoyed this home and its location and we highly recommend to others looking for a quiet, peaceful, family holiday!

            Thank you so much for the use of your home. Our family enjoyed our stay here. The sunsets are beautiful from your veranda, and the nightly serenades took getting used to, but eventually grows on one's senses. Our family enjoyed Honaunau Beach; swimming with the green sea turtles was awesome. We look forward to future visits to Kona and having the opportunity to stay in your home again would truly be a blessing for it is a "home away from home."

            Your home is very comfortable and relaxing. We love the large lanai. This is what a vacation should be. We enjoyed the country setting complete with turkeys, pheasant, sheep on the hill, chickens and the wild pigs caught in the trap twice while we were here. We go a free boar rodeo! We learned about coffee at Greenwell and the co-op-chocolate-vanilla and macadamia nuts. We were star gazing on our last night at Maunaka Kea and hiked a bit with great views. We would love to come back!

          About the owner: Honaunau is one of our favorite places on earth. Experiencing the hidden beauty of Kona is something we wanted to share with others.

          Why the Owner Chose Honaunau:
          This is a historic family property. In addition to the scenic beauty and tranquility of South Kona, visitors will get a chance to experience Kona from a 'local' point of view.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          It is like heaven on earth. Very peaceful and serene with a spectacular view of Kealakekua Bay. It is on 5 acres of agricultural land and is lush with fruit trees (oranges, mango, papaya, avocado) and lush tropical foliage. I love watching the wild turkeys strutting through the yard followed by the chickens. We get away to recharge our batteries after the hubbub of the city. I also love to take the scenic drive to Volcano through the southern most part of the island (which begins when you take a left turn out of the driveway and drive around the island). It has some of the most breathtaking views of the Big Island I have ever experienced. Side trips to Milolii, Hookena, South Point and Naalehu are must do's.
