About Jeff & Nikki Caufield

We are an active family of four that enjoys traveling and outdoor activities. We love visiting Kona and partaking of all it has to offer. We really like the small town feel of Kona and easy going pace that Hawaii is famous for. Lots of volleyball for us as well as outrigger paddling, fishing, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, soccer...etc.

Jeff & Nikki Caufield purchased this house in 2009

Why Jeff & Nikki Caufield chose Kona Coast

We love the feel and pace of Kona. Not as urban as Oahu or Maui, so perfect for relaxing and still enjoying the best of Hawaii.

What makes this house unique

We are close to Keauhou Bay where snorkeling, outrigger paddling and volleyball can be found. Within 2 miles of downtown with lots of shopping and restaurants. Close to the airport. Perfect jumping off grounds for traveling around the Big Island.

Perfect home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as beautiful as the pictures in VRBO. We got really lucky when we stumbled on this great find while searching for a place to rent in Kailua-Kona. The owners weren't kidding when they said the house was centrally located-- Costco, Walmart, K-Mart, Target and Safeway all within miles of each other. The house itself was warm feeling. Felt like "home."

They provided bath towels, beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs, ice chests, boogie boards and snorkeling equipment. The list goes on!!!!!

Did I mention anything about the beds? Omigosh!! Every single family member had nothing but good things to say about the beds they slept on--even myself! I normally have back issues after a night's rest-- but not at Kona Calm! Each night was just as restful (if not more) than the previous night. That alone is enough reason for me to come back!

The landscape on the property was beautiful. Some evenings were spent at home just watching the sunsets in the back yard. Simply beautiful!

The check-in instructions were precise and thorough. Nikki didn't miss a beat---everything I thought of asking was already answered in the email that was sent--EVERYTHING!

Out stay here in Kona Calm put this year's vacation to the Big Island at the top!!

Thank you for the memorable time and for your hospitality!! Mahalo!!!!!

Everything about the house interior, exterior, location and proximity to everything can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend for your next Kailua-Kona trip. The house is located in an awesome community. The exterior of the house and landscaping is beautiful. The interior extremely clean makes you feel at home, has everything you could possibly need… Bath towels beach towels… Etc. Just show up with a change of clothes, there's a full size washer and dryer so no need to over pack. The garage has all the water toys you could need surfboards, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, umbrellas, kids toys.... even an OC1. Split level home…Upstairs has two bedrooms two bathrooms kitchen dining room and a small living /sitting area, downstairs has two bedrooms a bathroom and a family room....perfect house for multi family vacations. The back patio has a perfect View of Kailua Bay....perfect for evening sunsets, barbecues and just pure relaxing.

Beautiful home! Terrific ammenities!

  • 5 of 5

We visited the big island while bringing daughters over for school, go UH Vulcans! We were all very comfortable. House is very well equipped, use of the recreation equipment is huge benefit! Looking forward to several more stays since we will be "forced" to visit the kids I suppose!

Relaxing and beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to have the most peaceful vacation, Kona Calm is the place. The view of the Pacific from the patio was my favorite perk. The house was clean and stocked with all the bedding and towels you might need. The kitchen had all the necessary tools. The 7 of us were felt right at home. Perched on a hillside and at the end of a street with open space next to it, I understood why it is called Kona Calm. Costco, Safeway, Walmart, and Target were all just minutes away. The owners were helpful and cooperative, and genuinely nice . When I come back to the "Big Island" , I will not hesitate to stay here again. Two thumbs up!!

Great Kona Location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Kona Calm for a two week stay for 6 people at a busy time in Kona. This location gave us the convenience of a close location to town with a bit of distance to allow a chance to enjoy paradise while quietly watching the sunset over the ocean. The house was used as home base for many explorations. The owner's book of local spots they enjoy was particularly helpful. The neighbourhood was quiet and safe. The use of the coolers and chairs for the beach was great. The house was big enough so if anyone wanted some "alone time", this was easily achievable. The closeness to the Queen K highway made getting to town quick and reasonably easy. We would definitely recommend KONA CALM to anyone we know heading to The Big Island and would also stay again if we ever find our way back. Mahalo Jeff & Nikki!
