We invite you to escape to this beautiful, very private traditional Ocean Front Hawaiian home, just minutes from downtown Kona and a wide variety of other attractions.
This 2850 square foot home is perfect for family gatherings with a large master bedroom, a queen-bed bedroom, a 'bonus room' with bunk beds, and two and half baths. There is an additional studio-style 'ohana' (apartment) that is attached to the main house that has a queen bed, private bath, kitchen, washer/dryer and private entrance. The home is furnished in a comfortable, casual Hawaiian theme...some of the furniture is hand-made by Hawaiian artists. There are ceiling fans throughout the house. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything necessary to cook and then some, such as a blender, rice cooker, etc.
Open the French doors that stretch across the front of the home to allow in the Trade Winds, a wonderful respite from A/C. During the day, take a trip to the volcano, go whale-watching, visit the restaurants and shops of downtown Kona, or go deep-sea fishing. There are fascinating tide pools in the lava rocks right behind the house that are home to sea turtles, crustaceans, and an abundance of small fish. This house is a short walk from the sandy beaches of Magic Sands, or a half mile drive to the protected lagoon known for snorkeling. Be prepared to see gorgeous fish and gentle sea turtles!
Make sure to be home in the early evening, around 6pm, to relax in the hammock or on the lounge furniture and catch the famous Hawaiian sunset while drinking a Mai Tai! (see recipe below). During the winter months, watch carefully for the migrating humpback whales that swim. and sometimes breach, right in front of the house.
At night, each bedroom is filled with the sounds of waves crashing onto the lava rocks. This property is gated and walled which lets you relax and think of nothing but being part of a tropical paradise.

I wanted to thank you for the fantastic accommodations during our recent stay in Kona. They exceeded our expectations, and we did not miss a single sunset…and the sea turtles even showed up a few times!
I will definitely be in touch if my travels take me to the Big Island again!
My favorite time was enjoying my coffee from the lanai. The view at sunset is absolutely perfect, and we actually got to see the "green flash." We were greeted by Turtles, and dolphins daily, and got to see a whale pod. The location is close to downtown and just a stroll to the beach. We would definitely book here again.
Great older home that has been very well maintained. The location couldn't have been any better and the fact that the house is right on the ocean with fantastic lava tidal pools allowed us to watch and admire many sea turtles during our stay. Kathy was fantastic during the booking and providing us with easy to understand instructions regarding the gate code, key box, etc. The only minor issue is a lack of central air conditioning. During our visit, the Kona temperature was HOT and the lack of central air was a mild inconvenience. The Master Bedroom did have a window unit that was a savior. Usual summer temperatures are rarely this hot, so there usually is no need for air conditioning. I'd recommend Kathy's lovely home to anyone wanting to stay near Kona (about a 5 minute drive from the home).
I had the pleasure of staying here. It was more than I expected! Waking every morning to the beautiful ocean and the sea turtles!!! The house is fully equipped with everything for cooking and barbecuing!
The sunsets are amazing. It's close enough to everything you need! I will defiantly rent this home again and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kona!
I loved every second of being in this house!
Good place, nice house with beautifoul see view . Thank You for good time in this property. Petras
We had a big group of 3 couples and an auntie on the island together from various places on the mainland and this place was PERFECT. Being so close to the ocean is so incredible. It’s a good layout for a group since the home is long and spread out- but really you spend most of the time on the lanai so the rooms are just for sleeping. I've stayed in tons of rentals in Kona and this place is really special. We were dodging a hurricane so the waves were huge and dramatic and beautiful. And to finish a long day of exploring the island under the stars on the rock wall was so glorious. It was truly an experience, especially coming from NYC and LA we don’t see skies like that!— One night we also saw a huge comet-like UFO looking thing that turned out to be a satellite reentering the atmosphere (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jocj1q2mkSs it looked 10x as big!) but to those of us on that lanai over the ocean, it was just supernatural and magical. Most mornings a pod of dolphins would swim by and jump and play in the water! The kitchen is good- for foodies it could use a few more amenities, and the coffee maker was quirky, but it all worked for us and we were able to make big family meals with ease! I still fell in love with this home, as did our whole group, so we think of it fondly and I highly recommended to those coming to visit Kona!
The property is very nice. It is right on the ocean with great sunset views, sea turtles swimming just below sea wall, dolphins jumping, and whales breaching a few hundred yards offshore.The setting is beautiful and there is a sand beach within an easy five minute walk from the house. The house is well maintained with plenty of beach and snorkeling equipment provided. The owner is very responsive. The one minor electrical problem we encountered was corrected the same day we reported it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
Tide pools with fish and sea turtles right off back wall. Walk to Magic Sands beach, 3 minutes away. We are very close, less than half mile away, to a beautiful public beach with protected lagoon for swimming and snorkeling.
