Tropical Vacation at an Affortable Price

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

Come to the Big Island, unpack your bags in The Kona House au nd begin the perfect tropical get away!

The Kona House is in an ideal location: one hundred feet from Magic Sands Beach, a mile and a half to Keauhou Shopping Center and three miles from the heart of old Kona Town. You'll have access to shopping, movies, great restaurants, shave ice, galleries, golfing, snorkeling and diving tours, live entertainment, parks, beaches and harbors . If you are an explorer this is a great starting point for traveling south to the Volcano or north to the majestic Kahala coast and mountainous Waimea town.

The Kona House is a child friendly destination and serves as relaxing family retreat. Warm sunny days keep our pool warm enough for evening dips while you BBQ on the huge, roof top lanai. Or, put your feet up listen to the chirping birds in the old banyan tree and the rhythmic sound of the waves hitting the shore at Magic Sand Beach and order in. If you are really motivated walk the hundred steps to the beach and applaud the sunset. It's a good show and guaranteed daily.

The Kona House is a generous, 3500 square foot double story house. The space is designed to allow privacy and quiet on wrap around decks while providing a large group area for watching TV and playing games. There is also an office with hi speed wireless internet access for those who need to stay in touch with friends or work.

The Kona House has a hidden secret. A one bedroom, completely equipped apartment with a private entrance that is separated from the main house by a hallway. It is the perfect getaway for a couple.

The Kona house has been beautifully landscaped with local plants and is especially proud of it's old Banyan Tree.

hated to leave

  • 4 of 5

Living room fan did not work. The doors did not lock. Despite that,we had a wonderful time. The house was most roomy and comfortable. The pool was very nice. There was lots of beach toys and towels. So much to see and do, we ran out of time too quickly.

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect for our family of 11 and you managed to do it within our budget. It was in a perfect location on the island and provided all the amenities and space we all needed to spread out.

large, multi-level home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our three families (a group of 11). It provided plenty of space for all of us and the "mother-in-law" unit was great for the family with small children. We all enjoyed the pool and the proximity to the beach even though the high surf made it hard to enjoy the water. The kitchen was large and made group cooking easy; however, the microwave did not work. We also enjoyed having dinner on the deck each night and loved having a table and enough chairs for the whole family to eat together as a family group.

Fabulous spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Great location and spacious house, with plenty of room for 4 adults and 5 teenagers who loved the close proximity to the beach, beach toys, pool and separate games room/kitchen !

The parents greatly appreciated the upstairs kitchen, comfortable lounge and large deck for drinks, dinners and sunsets. The 2 small issues that were a problem when we first arrived were quickly seen to and fixed, thankyou. Mahalo. xx

Affordable vacation accommodation for a large family group.

  • 4 of 5

For a family of nine adults and one four year old, this accommodation met all of our needs for meals, sleeping, and relaxation. The kitchen and eating area was well laid out and the large harvest table was big enough to accommodate all of us for a sit down meal. The upper deck was relaxing in the early morning and late in the evening. The pool became the centre of activity after a busy day of site seeing and shopping. It worked in the early morning as well. The cathedral ceilings on the second level as well as the overall decor gave the house a "Hawaiian" feel. Most of the bedrooms were large enough to meet everyone's needs. There was a sufficient number of beach equipment available to satisfy everyone.
