Oceanfront Private Home on Kahalu'u Bay with Pool (studio also available)

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath House, sleeps up to 4 persons; separate studio available

Private comfortable home and studio where your backyard is the ocean. Beautiful oceanfront setting where the waves splash against your deck. The beds in the master bedroom of the house and studio are less than 35 feet from the ocean. The main house has a gourmet kitchen, fans, large private covered lanai, sun area, and swimming pool (solar heated) next to the ocean. The studio located on the other side of the garden, approximately 35 feet from the main house also has a gourmet kitchen, fan, private covered lanai, separate entrance & private parking area.

It is said we have the best location on the entire stretch of Alii Drive... we're located near the end of Alii Drive overlooking Kahalu'u Bay. The south side of our property is bordered by an ancient Hawaiian temple called the Ku'emanu Heiau that is dedicated to the sport of surfing. Adjacent to the temple is the historical St. Peter's Little Blue Church & Kahalu'u Beach Park, one of the best snorkeling spots on the entire island and only a two minute walk.

Both house and studio have spectacular ocean views for sunsets and whale, dolphin, and surfer watching. If you don't need quite so much room, please see our studio VRBO site # 201215. Although close to shops, restaurants, and downtown Kailua-Kona, privacy is well assured. Swimming, snorkeling, diving, boating, fishing, surfing, sailing, kayaking, golfing, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, and volcano watching are just some of the exciting things to do on the Big Island of Hawaii. Come and enjoy . . . LIVE ALOHA!

Fantastic location in lovely Kona

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, so I guess that says it all. Julie's cozy Hawaiian house has all we need for our family of four. If you add the studio there's room for two more. The interior is very nicely done and clearly more personal with a distinct Hawaiian theme that you do not find in most other condos or houses that are up for rent in Kona. But most of all, the locaction is fantastic. While in Kona, you should make sure to travel around a bit a see all the musts on the Big Island, such as Mauna Kea, the volcano park etc. But if you feel like just relaxing and taking it easy, staying here will allow you to do just that. The only reason to leave the property will be do buy supplies at the nearby KTA. For the rest, you can enjoy Hawaii sunsets, turtles, palm trees, surf and corals right here. Simply perfect.

Old but still can have fun !

  • 5 of 5

My college buddy, Greg from Del Mar Calif. rented the studio for the second time this last December. I live in North Kona above the airport about 30 minutes away from Kahalu'u . Since I wanted to spend most of the week with Greg I decided to rent the house. Greg and I have been on many trips together and we always seem rushed! This trip was what we both agreed, the best yet. We surfed, snorkeled, walked, and generally relaxed. My sister in law and her husband came by almost everyday ! I live here and I would much rather stay in this very private house with it's own pool (love moonlight swims) and own bar b que than rent a crowded hotel room for MORE MONEY. I am going to rent the house for my son, daughter in law, grandson, and granddaughter next summer while I rent the studio for me !!! Love this place ! P.S. The owners and the caretaker are great people. ALOHA ! Jon

Perfekt quiet home to relax

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I are often returning guests to this property. We live in Germany and every time we visit the Hawaiian islands we visit Big Island first. Every time we enter the house we fell at home.

The setting is extraordinary, very close to the ocean. You can open the door from the Master bedroom at night and hear the ocean. During daytime you can swim in your private pool and watch the surfers just steps away. And of course you can watch beautiful sunsets. After snorkeling in the bay next to the house (you do not need a car to go for snorkeling, it is very near) you can take the outdoor shower and relax afterward on the shady lanai.

The house is equipped very well for cooking and stocked with essentials such us oils,pepper, salt, herbs etc. And the washer and dryer are located outside befor the house in a small separate building, no noises are disturbing you in the house.

My husband and I are always visting different islands while our vacation to Hawaii (minimum 3 weeks, it is a long way from Germany) and most islands we decide for different private accommodations each vacation. On Big Island we always decide for this property, because for us it is a perfect property to stay. We feel like coming home.
