Property description

•._.• Best location in Kona! •._.•
Please compare our location to others!
Large 4 bedroom home Perfect location Lots of extras Beautiful and uniquely designed 2 story home with 2 separate entrances, perfect for 2 families, a few couples, or a large family traveling together.

Nothing about this home will remind you of a 'Condo' experience!


Most all other large homes are either miles from town, or in less disireable areas near White Sands. Truthfully, the only 2 beaches in town (Kahalu'u and White Sands) are very small, and very crowded...most visitors may likely only go to these 2 beaches a few times. So, Why stay in that neighborhood? (We strongly recommend Hapuna Beach for a full day at the beach - please look it up, and you'll see why!)
Our home is centrally located, and a perfect base location for your Big Island visit!

¤ Managed by a family on island, so we're always just a phone call away if needed!
•._.•
Our home is EXTREMELY well equipped, and we are glad to help with any questions or recommendations regarding activities, beaches, restaurants, or shopping.

We're even glad to do pre-arrival grocery shopping for you, so you can just relax as soon as you arrive!

You get the entire home! Great for groups, extended or multi generational families, or couples / friends traveling together!

Uniquely designed, each floor is a Home in itself! The 1st floor features an open floor plan with a large Great Room (47' LED TV and Blueray) with vaulted ceiling and a sliding door to the huge covered lanai. There is a Full Kitchen with everything...including a dishwasher! Large Dining Room (adjoining Great Room), and 2 Full Baths (Master and Hallway) and 2 main floor Bedrooms (King & Queen), each with a sliding door to the lanai). Plus there is a full laundry area, complete with folding counter in the 1 car Garage.
A pull out couch on the 2nd floor can add up to 2 more children.

Second floor is very tastefully designed, with slate tile, Koa trim, and Vaulted ceilings too. The Great Room is large, open, and has 3 large windows for great breezes. There is a 32' LCD TV and DVD player in this Great Room. Add to that, the genuine Koa wood Breakfast Bar, the dining area, the nicely appointed Kitchen, and a large covered Lanai, and you have a great area for entertaining or having great conversations! Upstairs Master bedroom (King) has full bath, walk in closet, and sliding door to private Lanai view. 2nd bedroom (Full) has large closet and sliding door to main Lanai area. There is even a 2nd Laundry with a full sized washer & dryer behind louvered doors too.

Kahalu'u ('Snorkel Beach') Right down Alii Drive

Car: Recommended

Just 1 mile south of downtown shopping & restaurants, you have all the conveniences, just not the noise, traffic, & crowds. Our private road has just 11 homes on it, and we're just the 5th house from the ocean. At the end of the road is a rocky ocean access area that is perfect for having your favorite drink and viewing a stunning Kona sunset. It is an area with huge lava boulders and beautiful pieces of coral. Many times you'll see dolphins, manta rays, and whales (Winter months).

Honestly, the perfect place for people that want to be close to town! Close enough to walk to most anything if you choose. Our home is 1 house away from Alii Drive, which is the main route thru Kona Town. Bus pick up right across Alii, less than 1/2 block away.

When comparing location, consider the neighborhood & distance from the downtown area. Kona is quite spread out, & many rentals are miles from the downtown area. Some older local neighborhoods more south (the White Sands Beach area) are fine if you don't mind the street noise and traffic, but are generally less desireable, especially at night. White Sands and Kahalu'u Beaches are about 2 and 2.5 miles away, right on Alii Drive. Quiet neighborhood, both neighboring houses are owned as 2nd house, and owners are rarely there, and the home is backed by a large open field.

The Big Island is quite spread out, as you will see when you do a little research! Our location is a great base for all your travel plans, as well as being a very short distance from shopping and restaurants. There is a fun Farmers Market we recommend that sells local fresh fruit, tropical flowers, and has numerous booths of souveniers and tourist goods too.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We've been operating another Kona vacation rental for several years now, so we know how to make sure you enjoy the home. No 'bare bones' rental here, you will feel like you are staying at a friends house. We are fortunate enough to have several groups return for 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th visits so far, and many more have become great friends as well. (We do use other sites, and have numerous reviews posted, but we are new to this site!) I'm originally from the Chicago suburbs, and relocated to Kona after visiting here - - and knowing that this was the place for me!

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We felt our home's location was the best, and it's design was very unique. It is basically an upscale 'up / down' Duplex type home, and you get the entire home. We spent many vacations at Vacation Rentals, and we feel that (by far) your expectations will be exceeded with what we provide, and our honest presentation of our homes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
After a day of activities, you can come back to a well appointed home, in a a peaceful setting with a large and private outdoor area to enjoy. Many guests have commented that the 'comfort level' far exceeded their highest hopes, and that the many extras we provide made it feel like home. We live in Kona as well, and are glad to meet to give advice or suggestions.
