Holualoa house description
Please note: We do not maintain the calendar on this page. To access availability information please visit konabeachhouse.com.
The four bedroom home is built in the classic Hawaiian mauka - makai (mountain - ocean) fashion. It is one room wide with 10 foot high ceilings designed to capture the sea breeze during the day and the mountain air at night. The shady indoor and outdoor lanais provide an extraordinary view of the ocean and the Kona Coast. With modern amenities, the atmosphere of the beach house is little changed from the 1940's and 50s.
Two bedrooms have king beds, one has a queen and one has 2 twins. There is a roomy, comfortable living room with large flat-screen TV, a large dining room and comfortable lanai where we spend most of our time. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and service for 20. The large lawn has room for your wedding reception or a good game of croquet, touch football or volleyball. Free wi-fi and telephone to US and Canada.
When rental is combined with the Seaside Zen Cottage (446243) the property is ideal for weddings, family reunions or gathering of good friends.

Our website has many suggestions for water sports, volcano visits, fern forest hikes, horseback riding....you get the idea!...moreless

About: Ian was born on Hawaii Island and this home was built by his parents in the 1940's. Now living in California, this is their place for rejuvenation. Barbara likes to play golf on one of the many magnificent courses on the Island. Dylan and Ian snorkel and scuba dive. We take amazing hikes down the Waipio and Waimanu Valleys. Ian's fisherman friends fly fish for aku, ahi, and au (marlin). In the morning, one can join the runners on Alii Drive and run the four miles to Keauhou, the finish line for the Ironman Triathlon. The less ambitious float in the lagoon just before sunset and then at the cocktail hour watch for the green flash from the open lanai. In the evenings, we often arrange for Tina (our on-site caretaker) to cater a gourmet meal - something lean and healthy with organic greens, veggies and grilled fresh-caught deep water ocean fish served al fresco on picnic tables on the lawn.
When Robbie and Marjorie were married in 1938, Majorie gave up her job, her professorship and her profession to move from Honolulu to Paauilo and become a plantation manger's wife. She had absolutely no regrets. Her principal concern was her husband. Robbie was never in good health, his war wounds and the stress of running the plantation, while pursuing his agenda of social reform and industrial innovation took a toll. Marjorie insisted that they find a place to go to get away from the Plantation. At first they took weekends off. They would drive four hours to Kona and stay at the Kona Inn. In 1946, they decided to buy a lot on the ocean. It was a magical place. There were three sandy beaches and a little lagoon where their children could learn to swim and snorkel. The promontory in front of the lot offered views up and down the Kona Coast. They would build a house. The place would come to be known as the Plantation Manager's Beach Home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
From our lanai you can watch the humpback whales in the winter, the porpoises coming to feed every morning and the spectacular sunsets every night. It is the place we love to bring our friends (if too many we spill over to the Seaside Zen Cottage, our property next door). We can't imagine a nicer spot.
