Aloha and welcome to Kona View Estate, a 3 Acre Luxury Vacation Rental Property comfortably nestled on the slopes of Hualalai overlooking Kailua-Kona.
The entire estate has been completely remodeled and updated with top-of-the-line appliances. In October of 2011 we completed our huge solar project: We replaced our roof to allow us to install a (11.25 Kw) Photovoltaic (PV) system as well as solar hot water. We also added a 1,200 sq ft Exercise/Wellness Facility that features a top of the line Life Fitness treadmill and elliptical trainer. There is ample room for stretching. Balance balls, mats and light weights are also included. Wall to wall windows and jalousies keep the facility cool and highlight the incredible view. There is a hot tub in a private location that offers the same stunning views as the rest of the estate. In 2013 we refitted the infinity edge swimming pool with a saltwater style chlorine generator which allows a much more comfortable swimming experience.
In May of 2014 we built a roasting shack to house our state-of-the-art coffee roaster. We are a working coffee farm and we look forward to sharing this wonderful experience with you.
We are located comfortably 'up country' in the midst of the Kona Coffee belt on a working coffee estate. It is usually 5-8 degrees cooler up here with the gentle breeze that comes off the mountain day or night providing an ideal temperature.
The Vista Suite is located on the South side of the villa and has its own separate entrance. All rooms overlook the Pacific Ocean through the lanai, deck and infinity pool. The master bedroom has a King size bed – when you awake you can see 30 miles of the Kona coastline and ocean from your bed. It has an attached private master bath with a large soaking tub as well as a walk-in shower. The second bedroom features two twin-sized beds that can be made into a King-sized bed upon your request. It has its own bath down the hall. The enormous gourmet Kitchen/Living Room/Dining Room has every amenity a chef could want. It also has a couch with a sleeper bed.
Because we live here we can offer services that usually are not available with a vacation rental. Do you need your refrigerator stocked with essentials prior to your arrival? We will gladly offer this concierge service for free. If any problems arise we are here 24/7 to help, make recommendations, give directions etc, but we tend to keep a low profile.
We are looking forward to sharing the powerful energy of this mountain retreat balanced by the outstanding views of the Pacific Ocean. You can often see the curvature of the earth as you awake and gaze over this lovely estate. This is a place of rejuvenation, relaxation, power and growth and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Why Owner chose Kailua-Kona
We fell in love with the house and property the moment we saw it 7 years ago. Yes, the view of Kona and the coastline is the best that we saw in our two years of house hunting. But what struck us was the sense of serenity and calm this property and location afforded us. We immediately felt that we were 'home'. Part of the appeal to us also was the location right in the midst of the Kona Coffee Belt and the fact that the property had been a working coffee estate.
What makes this Estate unique
All of the pieces by themselves are incredible: the incredible view from every window, the infinity edge solar heated salt water pool, the hot tub, the holistic fitness center, a completely green solar electric powered house, the two acres in award winning coffee, the sights and sounds of the country, the fresh air. Put them all together and you have a true luxury estate to relax in - when you are not too busy exploring all that the Big Island has to offer! Our location right in the midst of the Kona Coffee Belt and the fact that the property is a working coffee farm sets us apart from many other vacation rentals. We have just added a roasting shack and now can roast coffee in-house in a custom made artisanal drum coffee roaster. We can offer to our guests our own private label 100% Kona Estate Certified Coffee grown and roasted right here on the property. We supply the finest coffee making equipment in the unit to compliment our award winning coffee.

Fantastic vacation spot!
Loved this vacation rental! We plan to share our experience with others. The owners were sweet and very helpful. The house was stocked with plenty of basic kitchen needs, household items, and beach items. The view from the deck was amazing. Can't wait to come back! The coffee was a bonus!
Loved our time here
Our stay at Kona View Estate was absolutely amazing. The view is spectacular, especially from the pool or hot tub. The house is spacious, clean and well equipped. It is also conveniently located: 10-15 minutes to get to Kailua and all of the action, close to multiple swimming and snorkeling beaches and right in the heart of Kona coffee country.
In addition, Randy and Atsumi were amazing hosts. They made sure we had some of the basics to eat in the fridge since we were arriving late. Randy took the time to show us around the coffee operations and Atsumi led us through some fitness exercises. They made sure we were well taken care of for our entire stay.
Thank you for a great visit! We look forward to returning next year.
Best place we have stayed on the big island.
Made to feel welcome from the first meeting. Place is amazing and very comfortable, just the two of use and so much room. Pool was great as was the view from the pool looking out over the Kona coast. Coffee was so good, amazed we slept at night.
Randy and Atsumi were great and helped us with finding good restaurants and beaches. Place was kept clean and well maintained with no complaints on our side. Lots of towels and bed linen. Pantry and cupboards well stocked with essentials and stores close at hand. lots of fresh fruit and veggie stands along side roads and a lot cheaper than the big stores.
Final review:- great place to stay for a vacation on the big island, two thumbs up.

Peace and Quiet in Holoalua
We stayed 9 nights at Kona View Estates and had a truly enjoyable experience. The setting is peaceful with a spectacular view of the coastline. We enjoyed being in the quiet of Holoalua away from the resort area where we previously stayed. The location is quite central making our day trips much shorter than last year. Our hosts (Randy and Atsumi) were very responsive to our every need but also very respectful of our privacy. We felt very spoiled. Given our late arrival, Randy offered to pick up a few groceries for us which smoothed out that first morning transition. Waking up to fresh squeezed orange juice and custom roasted coffee was a highlight of our trip. The unit is very large and easily accommodated our group of 5. It is clean and well laid out. The kitchen had all necessary appliances and well stocked cupboards. We learned a lot about how coffee is grown and roasted and visited a local coffee bar that sells Randy and Atsumi's excellent beans. Our boys enjoyed playing in the lovely pool and we enjoyed the hot tub at the end of our busy days. We even got some work outs in the studio. In all, our stay was idyllic and we would definitely stay here again.

Perfect: Clean and Spacious + POOL!
My family and I were in town for my cousin's wedding in Kona. At first, we debated about staying up in Holualoa, but we definitely made the best decision by doing so. It's only a ~15min drive down to Kona and the peace and quiet along with the pool and hot tub were the perfect getaway from some of the craziness in Kona. Also, the hosts are amazingly accommodating. My nephews came up and we had a blast in the pool. I give this property, and the hosts, my highest recommendation.
A Labor of Love from the Slopes of a Volcano
When we booked the VRBO on the Big Island of Hawaii back in the summer, I didn’t realize I was signing up for an eco-tourism experience.
Kona View Estate offers a 2 bedroom, 2 bath Vista Suite with a well-appointed kitchen, comfortable sitting area and tremendous views of Kailua Kona down 1,500 feet below. They also have a 1 bedroom cottage adjacent to the suite for rent as well. The owners live in the semi-connected home next door. Rather than finding their presence to be intrusive, it had its benefits!
We were surrounded by a two-acre Kona coffee farm, the random rooster crowing in the distance, colorful small birds and butterflies speckled our views of the Pacific coastline down below, and mountain breezes gently swept the deck cooling us from the warm island sun. Every night, the sunsets were broad and expansive, filling the sky with a fiery spectrum as the sun sank beneath the Pacific’s edge. Nighttime brought the sweet chirping of the coqui tree frogs, and the twinkling gemlike lights of Kailua Kona below.
Their concierge service provided us with a stocked refrigerator and pantry per our emailed grocery list upon arrival. Randy greeted us when we arrived, showed us the place and concluded by saying he would have a freshly-brewed carafe of their own Kona View Coffee, ready and waiting for us outside our door promptly at 7:15 am.
Randy met us one morning and gave us a tour of his two-acre farm. We also saw a roasting of the beans. The honey-colored beans went into the bright red, large Dutch roaster. After several minutes, you could hear the “first crack” of the beans, which sounded faintly like popping popcorn. Atsumi opened the door and dark brown beans poured out. She extended her palm to us containing two freshly-roasted beans for us to taste. The warm bean tasted like coffee, of course, but also like chocolate, and chiles and oranges.
Brad and I have stayed at about a dozen VRBOs over the years, but I think this was my favorite. It’s not only the gourmet kitchen and the spaciousness, the views of the coast from the infinity pool, the hot tub at sunrise every morning and at night under the stars, the sound of the little tree frogs carried by the mountain breezes. But I think a place that can inspire, and make you dream a bit, and wonder about life and reflect on love and family, all the while encompassing you in a Kona coffee embrace. Well... I think that beats an ocean front hotel room any day.
Our property has two acres in coffee and we are in the heart of the Kona Coffee Belt just 2 1/2 miles from the artistic community of Holualoa.
