Private Homes house description
We offer our home with pleasant mountain breezes, panoramic ocean views and gorgeous sunsets.
Our vacation home offers three bedrooms, two baths, a fully equipped kitchen with dining area, an indoor living room with TV, wireless internet service, and laundry facilities. Relax and enjoy the peaceful ocean views while you have your breakfast or coffee on the huge lanai in the morning or with a glass of wine in the evening absorbing the beautiful Kona sunsets.
If it's ocean side and a swimming pool you want, then this is not the place for you. The sea level locations require air conditioning and you will find yourself locked up instead of enjoying Hawaii's beautiful climate at just a little higher elevation like our home is.
Enjoy pleasant breezes Hawaiian style supplemented with ceiling fans in each room which allow you to awaken to the birds singing.
Bring your swim suit, beach towel, and flip flops and your good to go. Tina will prepare for your arrival and assist with any questions during your stay.

- Our newer home, built in 2003, is located at a pleasant elevation yet close to Kailua Kona Bay. A 3.2 mile drive will take you to bay side restaurants and shops. Some of the best snorkel, sand, and surf beaches are just down the mountain to Alii Drive. The Kona coast offers beautiful views, coral snorkeling, dolphins, and whales. Explore coffee and macadamia nut farms. Our affordable prices give you the option to pay for a hotel or bed and breakfast when you make the trip east to see the volcano, hot ponds, and beauty of the Hamakua coast. You will want to explore the Island but it is called the Big Island for a good reason. Base out of our home and spend a night when it's low tide on the other side of the Island. The tide pools of Kapoho and the Hot Ponds are better at low tide. Tina manages things for us on the Island and will make sure everything is ready for you....moreless

Morning Coffee and Sunsets from the Lanai Were Awesome!
Morning Coffee and Sunsets from the Lanai Were Awesome!
We used this as a landing place for our move to the Big Island. It sure beat the hotel we were staying at. The kitchen was well equipped an the home was well maintained and clean. We were awaken by birds singing and had or breakfast out on the lanai. Our days were filled exploring the Kona area and looking for permanent housing. This place has an ideal location. Jennifer and Mark we live in the lower level helped us find the good snorkeling spots. We made sure we were back before sunset so we could watch it from the lanai.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are Clyde and Dianne Sebastian, originally from Minnesota but met while we were both teaching school in Australia. We have four adult children and three granddaughters. We have been Texans since 1984. We discovered the Big Island when we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in 1999. We fell in love with Hawaii and eventually purchased our home in 2007. At this time we still spend most of our time on the mainland and thus our fully furnished home is available to you for vacation rental. Dianne has a rewarding career working with students who have dyslexia and Clyde has recently returned to coaching high school wrestling. This keeps us on the mainland for now.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We purchased this home because the lanai across the front of the home gave us a true Hawaiian feeling. Being built in 2003 it is clean and fresh. You enter our home on the second level and as you enter you will already see the ocean through the patio doors out to the lanai. The ceramic tile floors eliminate any worn out carpet. The master has a king bed with a private full bath. The second bedroom also has a king bed which makes for private sleeping for two couples. The third bedroom has a single bed and a desk which provides a place for your laptop. The queen sofa is a hide-abed if needed. You will find you spend most of your time out on the lanai where we have three tables and nine chairs. Our pricing allows you to save money for a longer stay or to do the Manta night dive. You will be pleased with the climate, fresh air, and comfort of our home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have stayed at the Waikaloa Hilton for a few nights. The Hilton is fabulous with the canal, monorail, dolphins and private bay. However, at over $300 a night and no place to prepare a quick light meal, we find our home offers much better value. You can still visit the Hilton any day to just watch their dolphins - something we still enjoy doing occasionally. By staying at our home you will not be cooped-up in a hotel room or have to use air conditioning. In fact there is none. However, the mountain breezes flow through the home and with the ceiling fans you will find you can relax comfortably during the day and may still need to pull the covers up at night. We are just a little over three miles from the main part of Kona and close to good snorkeling, swimming, and surfing. Couples, friends, and families choose to take advantage of our location and pricing, and find that our home gives them the space and beds they need while providing the opportunity to prepare a few meals to enjoy on the lanai rather than eating at restaurants all the time. Our home gives you a good perspective of what it would be like to actually live in Hawaii. Try it, and you will not be disappointed.
