Welcome to our beautiful executive home on the sunny Kona Coast! The views are spectacular from any of the 5 lanais! This home was the personal residence of the architect who designed and built it. The house is spacious with over 2000SF laid out with large comfortable open rooms. There are too many features to cover them all, but you will love every minute of your stay here. The setting is quiet, private, and peaceful - perfect for your romantic stay in Paradise.
The house sits on a 1/2 acre that is a tropical garden of flowering trees and shrubs. Fruit trees include papaya, grapefruit, orange, avocado, lychee, and lots of macadamia nut trees. There are skylights throughout the home that, along with the vaulted ceilings, make this house sunny and open. Enjoy your morning Kona coffee out on the dining room lanai next to our beautiful rock waterfall and koi pond. The unobstructed ocean and coastline views from the covered living room and master bedroom lanais are spectacular!
The master bedroom wing is a sanctuary. Windows all around make the space light and airy. It has its own lanai facing the ocean and is perfect for reading, listening to music, or taking a nap. You won't believe the bathroom suite. It has a large tiled walk in shower stall with glass walls and door, plus a separate jetted soaking tub, and vanity. There are 2 private toilet rooms - one with its own vanity, and the other has a skylight and laundry chute. There is also a roomy walk-in closet.
Downstairs is the second bedroom with its own sunny lanai. There is a spacious full bathroom, and a large laundry room. The family sitting room has a sleeper sofa and a love seat to visit, nap, or watch TV. Sliding glass doors open to a lanai and out to the large tropical yard.
We don't want you to miss out on any of the many great restaurants in Kona, but dining at the house will be a treat. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for making a snack or feeding a family gathering. There is a radiant cooktop, convection microwave and wallovens, side-by-side refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, and all of the countertop appliances. Dine at the beautiful teak dining room table or out on any of the lanais.
Compare the cost and qualify of a stay in even the nicest hotel rooms to the beauty, space,and tranquility of your private vacation home.

ReviewsWrite a review
Perfect place for four in a quiet neighborhood away from the din of downtown! We couldn't have been happier. You do get what you see in the photos--a great house! Kathy, the care taker, does a great job with the place, bringing fresh fruit off the trees out back when it's ready and mac nuts are everywhere, ready for cracking, offering help with anything asked. Cole was wonderfully helpful, too, before we arrived, as well as during and after. We had great food everywhere we ate, esp. the catch of the day. We loved Ray's on the Bay at the Sheraton Hotel (reservations highly recommended)--get a table at the railing for the best viewing of the manta rays feeding at night--if you don't want to swim with them! We like funky--and 'Bite Me' at the boat harbor is a fun place to start. Jackie Rey's is great, too. And people everywhere were so friendly and helpful. There's a street fair on Ali'i Drive twice a month which is wonderful--music, food, crafts, hula exhibitions--GREAT fun! Do try apple bananas--they're wonderful, and by all means, go get some donkey balls!

Absolutely terrific home in terrific neighborhood, it made our family's (wife and 3 kids) first visit to Hawaii a wonderful memory. The description understates the location .. Very luxurious, clean, modern, well-equipped with terrific kitchen, nice bedrooms and beautiful master bathroom. We really felt like we had never even left home. Beautiful garden landscape. Fast wi-fi made planning easy on lap-top. Kathy who lived on-site was very helpful and kind. Peaceful, serene, yet near Target or Costco in Kailua-Kona (15 min drive) and KOA airport (10 min) so no time wasted driving all over. Beautiful beach about 5 miles north on highway at Mamalahoa turnoff (Kua Bay) was idyllic. Five minutes from home on Hawaii Belt Rd is Matsuyama Market with fantastic Hawaiian deli .. Kalua Pork was delicious .. only $5 .. Up the hill on Kaloko Drive is incredible scenic view as you ascend into the clouds to Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation tour .. This is west side of island more calm and sunny, while east side is wetter and tropical.. the difference is remarkable. Went to see the volcano .. allot an entire day for that, it's a 2 hour drive one way .. call for lava flowing updates first.. nps.gov/havo .. so you know what to expect. Enjoy a fantastic, elegant dinner at Sam Choy down in Kailua .. thank you Kathy for the recommendation. Bring your iPhone and you'll never get lost. I would stay at least a week, wish we had stayed two... it's heavenly. Thank you Cole and Kathy!! We'll be back again..

My wife and I were vacationing with my sister and her husband. We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in your beautiful home. The location was ideal, close to shopping, dining, and BEAUTIFUL beaches. We had fun exploring the island during the day and really looked forward to the quiet, peaceful afternoon and evening at home. We have all visited Hawaii a number of times and agree that this was the BEST.

Pretty Property with Multiple Lanais
Pretty Property with Multiple Lanais
We really enjoyed our visit to Kona, including the time we spent at the house. The listing description is accurate, and the property is clean and well-maintained. Kathy, the on-site property caretaker, was available to assist, though we really didn't need anything. The grounds of the property are beautiful, and we spent a lot of time outdoors relaxing on the lanais. We enjoyed snorkeling near the Captain Cook monument, which we reached by sea kayaks. I would recommend this property to small parties that don't have disabled people.

Owner response: Thank you so much for your great review. I am very happy it all worked out for you, and that your stay was a pleasant one. You are always welcome back with us again in the future, as are any family or friends coming to Kona. Thanks again.
We had a fantastic stay at this house, beautiful surroundings, well-stocked kitchen, gorgeous lanai overlooking the ocean where we spent most of our breakfasts and dinners. The location is very quiet and private, but is still close enough to town to be convenient. It also makes day trips to the Kohala coast and Waipio valley shorter than a trip from town as you're close to the main highways. Would absolutely recommend this house to anyone looking for a beautiful, luxurious and quiet home base on the Kona coast! Thank you for sharing your home!

A Private Paradise!Guest comment entered by owner
A Private Paradise!
What an absolutely gorgeous house! Congratulations on your purchase of such a beautiful place. We truly enjoyed our stay over the holidays. We had invited our family from the area for Christmas day, and everyone oohed and ahhed over the home. The view is unbelievable without a house, power line, or telephone pole to take away from it. It was so peaceful and quiet all of the time. My favorite was to sit out on the lanai next to the dining room in the morning, drink my coffee, and listen to the waterfall. My husband loved sitting out on the master bedroom lanai reading a book and watching the airplanes down at the airport. Thank you for having everything we needed in the house, even stuff for going to the beach. We can't wait to come back again and are already telling all of our friends about your vacation rental.

Also known as Makalawena Beach, this is an out in plain sight best kept secret on the Big Island. You have to earn the use of this spectacular series of 3 beaches separated by rocky areas by a 20 minute hike in. This beach park is only 10 minutes from the house only 2.5 miles north of the airport just past milepost 89 and is easy to miss the dirt road access. You will pass through a gate and at the end of the road you start your hike in. There are no facilities at all, so pack in what you need. Sound like too much work? Believe me, if you want a piece of paradise and hardly another person around, make the effort....MoreCollapse

About the owner: We are long time Alaskans looking forward to retiring and an end to the long cold winters. We have traveled extensively throughout the world and believe there is no better place than the Big Island of Hawaii.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We have been visiting the islands for almost 40 years, often for many months at a time. Of them all, the Big Island offers the most space and diversity. The Kona Coast is the best place with perfect weather year round and lots to do. We look forward to our future retirement when we can be in Kona all of the time.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is nothing better than walking out of the house in the morning and picking a ripe papaya or grapefruit for breakfast. Then sitting out on the lanai next to the bubbling waterfall and having my coffee while watching the fish in the pond is true bliss.
