This is the most unique little beach house in Kona! You have it all.... the ocean, the palm trees, gorgeous sunsets, private gated estate--- relax, rejuvenate and let your cares be gone!

Our friends and I love the outdoor cooking, BBQ and jumping into the water at all times of the day.

Amazing Oceanfront Home - BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my eighth time in Kona during Ironman week and my second stay at Little Piece of Heaven. This is hands down the nicest place I have stayed or seen in Kona. The views are simply breathtaking and the outdoor kitchen /dining area / patio is perfect for small gatherings of friends. The daily visits by the sea turtles were a huge bonus too. But the best part of this house is how well appointed and how much detail was given to the aesthetics. It's just a gorgeous place all around and worth every penny! I will always try to stay here on future visits and would recommend it to anyone (except during Ironman week - I want it then!).

Couldn’t have been better!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! This property is exactly as billed on the VRBO site! Right on the water, and despite being on a busy street the world feels a million miles away once you sit down in the outdoor living room and have a cocktail with sea turtles napping at your feet!

I could go on and on, but if you want to be right on the ocean in a beautifully appointed place, you need look no further. When we come back to the big island, we will DEFINITELY stay here again.

We are picky travelers and have NEVER been so pleased with a spot before.

You will NOT be disappointed!

Spectacular! We were enchanted by all the details of the property:the ocean, turtles, dolphins, beautiful sunsets, the aroma of myriad flowers, cooking and dining outside and of course the comfortable elegant indoor accommodations. Eagerly await the opportunity to visit again. Many thanks to hosts for making our stay memorable!

Gorgeous spot, great patio, sea turtles

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased that the place looks better even then the photos. So sweet and private and frequented by sea turtles. Need bug (gnats) candles at night, but the kitchen being outside makes for a really fun evening experience on the patio. Peaceful and beautiful and the owner's art and decor are very classy. A second bedroom and bath can make it family friendly, but it was just our couples getaway. The realtor was a little snippy with us, and we're very low maintenance so boo back at ya', This place is a real find.
