  • Fantastic Place

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The only thing about the whole stay (three weeks) was the pool was not maintained up to par. The pool person that came three times during our stay did not get the pool and its features corrected until the last day we were there, even though I sent e mails to the maintenance personnel."

  • Great find in the hills on the north side of Kailua-Kona

    "The location was great, really nice for getting a feel for the local community. Also an excellent choice if you're budget-conscious. Not only are you effectively getting 3 bedrooms for the price of two, but being on the north side of Kailua is great for affordable shopping at Target (most food) and Coscto ($4.99 roast chicken and cheap gas), as well as lots of free beach access. The place has plenty of lovely outdoor areas: we spent mornings by the koi pond watching the birds, fish, and geckos, and evenings on the lanai watching the sunsets and the local fauna passing thru. It has a spacious feel and seems to have been designed with a lot of consideration for natural light and air flow, and the decor is homey without feeling cluttered. The facilities include wi-fi, board games, and guide books, along with water sports equipment downstairs. Very nice master suite, and a roomy downstairs area suitable for a group of four. Superior kitchen and dining facilities. The owner is personable and responsive, and there is even a very nice neighbor who delivers her own locally made desserts. Does it get better?"

  • Location, location, location!

    "My husband and I have stayed in various other homes on Kona but this is by far the best. The view from the lanai is absolutely spectacular. We were here for three weeks and at times had to drag ourselves away from the lanai. We saw tropical fish in the waves, a large turtle, and many humpback whales while having our morning coffee. The house is extremely well equipped, the beds are comfortable, and the owner is a very pleasant, helpful guy. Rent this house! You will not be disappointed."

  • It IS Heavenly!

    "We've stayed at many VRBO properties world-wide and this was one of our absolute favorites! The house and grounds are beautiful and tranquil. The panoramic view of the ocean in the distance is mesmerizing. The well-stocked gourmet kitchen was another plus. A shopping center is nearby with a nice grocery store and a Long's Drugs in case you run out of "essentials". The property is on a private road, but our party of four never felt isolated, since many of the Kona-side sights are a short to medium drive away. Owner Cindy was incredibly friendly and helpful and dropped by the night before our departure to give us a bag of coffee from her family's coffee plantation. We highly recommend this lovely home!

Private Homes Travel Tips

Find Your Beachfront Paradise at Kailua-Kona Vacation Rentals

Kailua-Kona vacation rentals provide access to one of the few white sand beaches on the Kona Coast. Located on the Big Island, many of the beaches feature black sand created when hot lava flows into the cool Pacific ocean. If you like to surf or kayak, you can find local vendors renting equipment right on the beach. Dolphins and sea turtles swim in the surrounding waters. Grab you wet suit or your bathing suit and hit the waves for a day of fun before heading back to your vacation rental for a quiet evening.

Kailua-Kona Resort Rentals Provide Affordable Luxury

From condos to luxury estates, you can find the perfect vacation property along the coast. With Kailua-Kona resort rentals, you get the amenities you enjoy at home and the advantage of onsite perks. Depending on the property, these can include a private pool with chaise lounges for sunbathing or a gated community. Inside your rental, you'll find everything you need to relax, from a fully furnished living room to multiple bedrooms. Step outside and enjoy grounds surrounded by lush vegetation and exotic flowers.

Relax at Kona Coast Beach Homes

You'll find plenty of things to do in Hawaii, like taking a manta ray boat tour or exploring lava tunnels. In between adventures, your home-away-from-home lets you rest and unwind. In the mornings, enjoy a hot cup of Kona coffee as you wait for the sun to rise. The fully equipped kitchen makes it easy to prepare your favorite meals, and you can store local produce like fresh tropical fruit and organic veggies in the fridge. If you like fishing, consider a deep-sea expedition. When you get back to land, prepare the catch just the way you like it.
