Overview

About the property

Private, Amazing Ocean Views, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Heated Pool

Luxury Home with the Best Views on the Kona Coast (Big Island of Hawaii).

  

You'll love our large, heated pool! (This is not very common in Hawaii, but it is nice!) Travertine decking around the pool for the ultimate luxury.

Picture yourself lounging around the pool with the huge blue ocean always in sight, napping on the hammock, or reading on the tropical lanai sofas. Imagine one gorgeous sunset after another, framed by the palm lined coastline and the lights of Kona. Enjoy them with a glass of wine, Hawaiian music playing, surrounded by your family and friends. This is what you will find yourself doing at Kona View House.

We purchased and began renting our home a few years ago and from the beginning received excellent reviews and repeat customers. Since then we have spent over $300,000 on additional improvements including new kitchens and baths and floor to ceiling doors!! Our rents are priced much lower than comparable homes. Given the size and quality of the house, yard and views, most homes are charging hundreds more per night. We are charging less because we live here half the year and often don't want to take bookings far in advance. We rent it just to pay for the constant upgrades we are always making.

Our home contains Tommy Bahama-style tropical furnishings and tropical art on almost every wall. Lots of teak and bamboo. Gorgeous lanais. Solar-Heated pool. hammock. 4 flat screen smart TV's including a 65' Big Screen. X-Box with games. DVD Library.

All new mahogany and granite kitchen Dec 2016! Cooks dream with 36" induction cook top, two ovens and two sinks.

Sleeps up to 9 comfortably, 10 possible depending on the situation.. We welcome kids, and they love to play in the extra large pool! (But should be supervised for safety)

Your stay at Kona View House is also environmentally friendly, since we have 33 grid-tied solar panels which produce all the power we use!

Our 50+ 5 star reviews assure you that you will have the vacation of your lives! Guests return to Kona View House year after year, and even have come back to get married!

The house is on 2 floors. Upstairs is the kitchen, living room with big TV, dining room, main lanai, bedroom with king bed and ensuite bath, private den/bedroom with pull out memory foam queen bed, and powder room. Downstairs are two bedrooms with 1 full bathroom in the hallway between them. Both bedrooms downstairs walk out to the lower travertine lanais, and the pool. One is a wonderful room with queen bed. The other has a queen and a twin bed, and an armoire with x-box.

We are centrally located, just a 5-10 minute drive from downtown Kailua-Kona. Everything from Wal-mart and Safeway to the cute downtown shops and restaurants of Kailua-Kona can be reached in just a few minutes. You can even be snorkeling at one of the local beaches in just a few minutes. The airport is 15 minutes north, the mega resorts and beaches are 30 minutes north, and the Volcano is 2.5 hours south.

In terms of weather, because we are on the side of a mountain, you can choose your weather by elevation. Down toward the water it is very hot with little breeze. You would often want air conditioning at that elevation. Up at 1200-1500 feet it's quite cool; homes have fireplaces and residents wear long pants. Most people believe 600-800 feet elevation is ideal, and our home is at 650 feet. It's warm enough to feel that you are in Hawaii, but almost never gets too warm. In the evening, cool air comes down the mountain, and you can control the temperature in the house by opening and closing the front door to allow this air in or not. (Note that up north where the resorts are, it is often quite windy, but here we only get light breezes.) We do have 7 ceiling fans and large windows for warm days.

Pool solar heat is free, but guests can add additional, electric, heat for a nominal fee. This ensures you can have a great time at the pool even if it's especially cool or the sun is not shining.

Many of our guests report that they had all kinds of plans to visit places around the island, but they actually spent a lot of their time at the house, floating in the pool, hanging out on the lanai and watching the sunset, not wanting to leave. This is the experience we try to provide.

Certainly there are many vacation rentals you can choose from, but we hope you will choose ours so we can share this magical place with you. There are places that are less expensive, but we have yet to see something comparable to ours in terms of views, amentities, luxury, and style, for less. Don't forget all the ways we will save you $ on your vacation! You can cook your meals at home, and save money on rental costs for beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards, and coolers.

Note: We do not allow parties; only guests staying at the home, and others as pre-authorized.

About Cindi Anderson

We are an artist and an engineer, recently retired. We love brew pubs and happy hours with friends (our profile photo shows us at Humpy's Alehouse ) We started coming to Hawaii in 1990 and kept returning to the Big Island for it's raw beauty and Aloha spirit. We now are lucky enough to spend several months a year here, and the remainder skiing and biking at our home in Idaho.

Cindi Anderson purchased this house in 2006

Why Cindi Anderson chose Kailua-Kona

Gorgeous unobstructed views, high-end quiet neighborhood. While our home was already nice when we bought it, improving it has been a labor of love. These improvements have included decorating, opening walls, remodeling all the bathrooms, adding 1500sf of travertine around the pool, building a 1000 sf deck, new flooring, adding solar power, solar pool heat and an electric heat pump, replacing doors, windows, trim, flooring, and of course the constant maintenance that a tropical environment requires. But when you see it, and see our views, you will understand why it is worth it!

What makes this house unique

Our home is one of the original Kona vacation rental homes (when we started in 2006 everyone told us we were crazy renting out a high end house with great furniture!) But we know what people want and need when they are on vacation and have tried to provide those things. This is not an investment to us, we live here part of the year. We have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on furnishing and remodeling. This home is very personal and important to us and we treat our guests as if they are family. The house is in a great, safe neighborhood, with amazing views, but it is close and convenient to everything. The backyard is the best! You will love it! It's so peaceful, with all the tropical plants, the views, the pool, all to yourself. Whether you stay home all day, or return after a long day at the beach or the volcano, it's a wonderful place to relax. You can lounge and watch the kids play and swim (there are lots of floaties and pool toys), someone can get the BBQ going on the gas grill, or just relax on the hammock or lounge chairs, or on one of the many lanais. It really is a special place. It's one of those places you'll think about when you are told to go to your happy place. You'll be back in my yard in your mind, marveling at the shades of blue and turquoise in the Pacific Ocean ;-)

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed a week in this beautiful, well-maintained home. The view from all of the rooms is spectacular. From the comfort of the deck, we saw whales putting on a splash-fest. As for the home itself, this house is completely stocked with everything you need. There are plenty of towels, linens, beach towels, and a fully-stocked kitchen. You can tell the owners take a lot of pride in this home as care was put into all the details in this house. The pool was awesome and there were lots of toys to keep the kids busy every afternoon. The owners responded immediately the few days we asked to have the heater turned on. We hope to stay here again for future visits.

The location is also perfect. It’s a quick 10 minute drive into the tourist downtown of Kona and also a 10-30 minute drive to some awesome snorkeling spots. The location up on the hillside made for quiet nights and we were still able to hear the ocean. We enjoyed a wonderful family vacation (5 adults and 2 kids) here and would highly recommend this house for your future vacation!

Beautiful location, very clean house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our two families of 4 to stay in. We even had one extra with us, making us 9 people. The house is fully equipped with anything you could need. We took full advantage of everything in the kitchen and cleaned every night. Then we also worked our way through the large collection of beach and sand toys. We really did not need to buy anything extra!! The only thing to note is that if you want to pool a certain temperature, and warmer than the solar provides (which was around 80 when we were there) then you do have to pay for the extra pool heating.

Overall a great experience and great communication with Cindi, the owner. If we came back to Kona, we would definitely stay here again!

Amazing Location, Amazing Owners, Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights at this home - 2 families of 4 (4 kids and 4 adults). It was the perfect fit. Enough room for everyone - which is a big deal when you are trying to please that many people. The owners are amazing to work with and they were literally able to take care of any issues that arose immediately. They were responsive, kind, and super helpful. They have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable from making lists in the kitchen of where everything is, to a helpful binder with information on the house and the area. They had everything you could ever need for the beach - which is a huge plus when you have 4 kids who want to spend all day at the beach or the pool. It is an awesome location as well - a quiet friendly neighborhood super close to everything on the Kona side of the island - including Costco which is a huge benefit. I also have to say that for someone who loves to cook - and we cooked a lot during the week with 8 of us - this house had the best assortment of quality pots, pans, utensils and kitchenware. The owners have absolutely thought of everything that you could ever need during your stay. We will absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone I know who is headed to the Big Island. This home is a rare treasure for VRBO!!!

Great home with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days at this house for the holidays, Christmas and New Years. My parents were so excited to have the whole family together in one house (we are 6 adults and 4 kids). The house offers everything you need and more. We could make meals, pack lunches to take to the beach, or a quick drive to great restaurants, it was perfect. They also have beach towels, boogie boards, and coolers available to use which was wonderful.

The nights were a cooler, so the pool was a bit chilly. The great thing is we simply called to owners to request the pool heater turned on and once the water warmed a bit we definitely enjoyed the pool.

The sunset from the house is perfect! Many evenings we would stay to watch the sunset before we went out to dinner.

The view from the house at midnight on New Years Eve was absolutely amazing. We could see fireworks everywhere!
