About Jennifer Moore

Ken and Jennifer Moore, Canadians with two children and married 25 years,bought the Kona Sunset Beach House in 2010. After extensive renovations to make it their dream home, they are excited to share it with others.

As Canadians they can only be in Hawaii for six months and hate to see the house vacant. As well, the extra rental revenue will help them keep the home in tip top shape.

Ken has a medical engineering company and Jennifer is a Dentist. They love the big island and all that it has to offer.

Jennifer Moore purchased this house in 2010

Why Jennifer Moore chose Kona Coast

Kona Bay Estates is a very special area. Exclusive, with security, there is no better location on the big island. You are within walking distance to Kona's main tourist strip, yet on the edge of town for easy access to the freeway and beaches to the north. If you don't want to go anywhere there are plenty of activities, from tennis to beach, right in the community.

Photos can't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Honestly. They can't, because they don't let you feel the breeze or smell the ocean and fresh air. You can't tell that you can see the night sky from your bed as you hear the waves crashing. Staying here was one of our best vacations. We were welcomed the first morning by a whale showing off for us about 200 yards from where we were having breakfast! From nearly every room, you get a different vantage of the ocean. And the kitchen/family room windows slide back to open fully. The house is well stocked with games, pantry essentials, beach chairs and towels - all the things you need but don't want to buy. So lovely! We hope to go back!!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with this house was absolute perfection. The reservation process was a breeze. The house was exactly as promised. I've never rented a house that was stocked as well as this place was. It's location in respect to dining, shopping and activities couldn't be better. I would highly recommend staying here.

Luxury Oceanfront Home with Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not fully represent how beautiful this home is. The view and location is outstanding! We came to the Big Island to celebrate our 25th anniversary and this home was definitely one of the highlights. The gourmet kitchen was wonderful to prepare meals in, fully stocked, ocean view. The ceiling to floor sliding doors on the main floor that completely open to the outside, and the sound of the waves crashing in on the lava rock, is unforgettable. The two master bedrooms with en suites and private lanai's facing the Pacific ocean are fabulous. The crows nest for views, sunsets, and a game of pool...incredible! There were " extras" in the garage available for our use, snorkel equipment, coolers, boogie boards. Easy walk to Ali'i Drive from this location and convenient shopping close by with Super Target/Costco for groceries. Kona Honu Divers for a great Manta Ray experience is only a 10 minute drive. You will truly be missing out on one of the most spectacular rentals in the Kona area if you look elsewhere. We hope to return!

What can I say, what a beautiful house and beautiful location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay but unfortunately we only stayed for 5 days. We will defiantly be returning to Hawaii.

We shared this house with my wife's brother and his family which made 8 of us. Even though there is only 3 bedrooms there is plenty of room for 8. We were amazed to find the amount of extras left in the house which made our stay even more comfortable.

On another note, i would personally like to thank Cliff for helping my wife out after we had left the property. Once we had arrived in Honolulu we realized that my wife's medication was left behind in the fridge. I contact Cliff and he arrange for the postage of the meds to our hotel in Honolulu. THANK YOU!!!!

Once again thank you and we can't wait to return.

Happy Travelers

Fantastic House in a Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house celebrating our 30th anniversary and could not ask for a better time. This is a great home located close to a great town yet in a private gated community. The home was well appointed with all the amenities you could want and the views are astounding. We will certainly be back to the Big Island and will definitely look to stay here again.

Car: recommended

perfectly located with a 10 min walk to the main tourist strip of Kona. More shopping is even closer with Target and Ross Dress For Less only five minutes away. Also, you can easily be on the highway heading North to beautiful beaches minutes after leaving the house.

Our upscale house offers prime oceanfront living and with our backyard private pool and airport beach minutes away you may never leave the community.

For you pleasure we have golf clubs, bikes, tennis racquets, boogie boards, surf boards and beach coolers for your use

To help with where to go and what to see we have a local tour guide we would love to share with you. Come and enjoy
