About Beth Kirwan

Beth and Dennis Kirwan, owners. Dennis and I grew up on the Mendocino Coast. I lived in Hawaii in the third grade. We currently live in Mendocino, CA. My father lives in Hawaii and is a coffee and mango farmer on the Big Island.

We have two boys, Casey (21) who is a professional bull rider and lives in Texas and Blake (18), is a senior at Fort Bragg High School living with us.

We also have two dogs, Daisy and Colton and a horse named Rooster!

Beth Kirwan purchased this house in 2002

Why Beth Kirwan chose Kona Coast

When we bought the property, it was all over grown with a rusty old car in the middle of the lot. We designed and built the Aloha House specifically as a vacation rental. We wanted to create a home to share that is comfortable for families to use as if it was their own.

What makes this house unique

The house is situated in a great little neighborhood. It is about a two minute walk to the Pacific Ocean (west of the house) and to Kealakekua Bay (North of the house). The location is a perfect home-base for exploring around the island.

The house is beautiful, with its huge mahogany and glass doors that open up to the large lanai. Yet it is very comfortable. We built and furnished it for durability, so no one has to worry about anything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are still talking about the great time we had.



The house worked well for our group of 7 adults, 2 kids and a baby. 3 master suites and walking distance to the beach were the selling points. The big table on the lanai was perfect for family meals, as we only ate out once. The kitchen had everything we needed too.



With kids, it was great to have the beach just a couple blocks down. We could go swim & play & get back for lunch without loading up the car. We enjoyed the quiet residential setting as well, and all the little extras the house had topped it all off for a great stay.

Very spacious.

  • 5 of 5

The close proximity to the monument and Two Step made this perfect for my snorkeling-centric vacation. The rental was very spacious and clean.

Highly recommended.

Aloha House is perfect

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo to you guys for the perfect home for our family! We slept 9 very comfortably and everything we needed was right there. Wonderful quiet neighborhood steps away from the Keaulakoua Bay. Working with the owners we were able to secure the home next door as well so the rest of our group was right next door. The home doesn't have a/c but there are fans in each room and also box fans are also available and we did just fine but for some it might be an issue. Honestly I could go on and on about all the great things offered here. We will be back !

Very nice house in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this comfortable House, which was perfekt for 2 families with 2 children each. The house is situated in a beautiful bay where we swam whit several spinner dolphins in the morning. Further down the road you find "two step" with excellent snorkling and lots of turtles. The amazing Volcanoes national park is a 2 hours drive from the house. We had some issues with the internet connection at the beginning of our stay, but it was fixed quickly and efficiently with the kind kind assistance from the caretaker of the house. We can't wait to return again to this very nice house in a perfect spot of the Big Island.

Very nice house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the week that we stayed in the Aloha house. There were nine of us and we spent 7 nights. Everyone had a bed, Every night we went to sleep to the sound of the ocean. Like many Hawaiian homes, there is breeze blowing through the house to keep you cool. This also means that sound travels well. My 90-year old mother, seem to negotiate the stairs fairly well, there are quite a few of them. As the years roll on, we will have to give stairs more consideration. Three of us slept downstairs in an apartment off the garage, while the other 6 were up stairs. The house and huge lanai is really designed for interaction and socializing. The outside shower was terrific when we came back from the beach, which is about a 2 minute walk in either direction. There is good snorkeling right there, even better about 4 miles down the road at the Place of Refuge, or at Capitan Cooks Monument, which is about 1 mile across the bay. We walked down to Capitan Cook's from the top of the hill, and found it to be a little over-used. We found many better places to snorkel during our stay. We highly recommend this place. We loved being out of the hustle of Kona, but close enough that we could enjoy the conveniences if we wanted them. It is quiet, peaceful and private. Mahalo for a great stay.
