About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths

Relax, feel at home the minute you walk in our spacious comfortable traditional Hawaiian Style home. You will be on your own private acre of tropical landscaped beauty with many varieties of seasonal fruits and exotic flowers.

The house is tastefully furnished inside and out. With a huge covered lanai complete with outdoor dining and a gas BBQ you will enjoy searing Ahi and cooking steaks. You can relax in the evening on the deck serenaded by mauka breezes through the palms. Drink your morning Kona coffee with the beautiful yellow Finches, bright red Cardinals and neon Geckos so close you could almost touch them. In the yard you will find avocados, citrus (lemons, Tahitian limes, tangerines, oranges, grapefruit), mango, papaya and bananas, just to name a few. Fill your basket with these and more for a great breakfast. You can even make your own fresh squeezed orange juice while they're in season and pick all the bouquets you want.

The large great room upstairs is wrapped with windows. The kitchen, dining and living room are open and light. Our master bedroom has a comfy king size bed and TV with its own door to the back lanai that leads to the hot tub. The other bedrooms all have one full size bed. The downstairs has two bedrooms and one bath with an additional entrance to the yard.

You will be conveniently located 1/2 mile below the main road that will take you around the entire Big Island. South Kona's finest beaches are so close you will be at the waters edge of Kealakekua Bay, the Historic City of Refuge, Manini, Keei beach, snorkeling, swimming, exploring tide pools all in minutes of leaving your driveway. Our location is so great without going very far you can be at the grocery store, great restaurants, a fresh fish market, excellent bakeries, local coffee shops, mac-nut farms with gift shops and tours daily.

The place has some toys for your stay; boogie boards, some snorkeling gear, beach towels, beach chairs, multiple sized ice chests, DVDs, games, cards, and small library to list a few.

After your day of adventure on the Big Island is sinking-in and your relaxing in your home away from home, you'll be glad your staying at your own 'oasis' in beautiful Hawaii.

If you're like us, you will already be figuring out when you can come back or at least a way to stay a little longer!

Great place! Great value! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cool plantation style Hawaiian home. Huge wrap around deck, great views, big yard full of citrus and avocados.

Four bedrooms, with inside and outside dining areas. Very good price for everything this place provides. We will be back. Thank you for sharing. The house was in an easy location to get to other places around the island, and we loved having some laid back days at the house as well as fun adventures around the island. -Gracia, Alyssa, Kailey, and Kleya

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! All 3 generations of my part loved every inch of this property. We had fresh squeezed orange juice every day, fresh, delicious guacamole, and a little bit of every other fruit we could find. The wrap-around lanai and the clothesline added so much to our experience. We had great Kona coffee outside every morning. The location has an amazing view and it's close enough to everything, but far away enough that it's nice and quiet. My experience with the owner has been fantastic from start to finish, and the caretaker left fresh fruit and fresh flowers for our arrival. The house was incredibly spacious, not at all cluttered, and very comfortable. We will definitely be back to this property.

An excellent holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very pleasant house on a lovely and particularly peaceful part of the island. It's worth the stay just for the fresh fruit throughout the property and the lovely lanai. The owner is friendly and professional and the caretaker is cheerful and helpful. Three generations of my family (ages 3 - 74) stayed here for ten nights over the New Year. There was lots of room and many cool things to do right in the vicinity, such as the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park and Kealakekua Bay. A car is a must. I would recommend this property to my friends.

Relaxing in the Hawaiian Countryside

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to the island of Hawaii was made truly enjoyable by our week long stay at the Oasis in Kona. The house provided lots of space for our family which consisted of four adults, a toddler and a month old infant. The house’s two stories and huge wrap around lanai allow for both privacy and gathering together as a group in a variety of settings with plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Many little extras that you won’t find in a hotel or timeshare have been provided with the house to assist in making your stay a delight.

The location is ideal in that it offers a glimpse of Hawaiian countryside living yet within easy driving distance of Kona all that it has to offer. The property which is covered with a huge variety of plants including numerous fruit trees provides for a very private setting. The house is somewhat dated but is clean and comfortable and very quickly makes you feel at home letting you focus on exploring the island and all it has to offer. The location is particularly suited to exploring the area south of Kona (Two Step, coffee plantations, etc.).

The hospitality and assistance provided by Kerwin, the caretaker was fantastic. He was there if you needed him but was very respectful of your privacy. Becky, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful making the rental process easy and painless.

Lovely Hawaiian vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house and location are amazing, and it's a great base for day trips to other areas of the island. As long as you have a car, you'll love this place. Becky and Kerwin were very helpful and made the whole booking and arrival process very easy. The fruit in the garden was an added bonus, as were the geckos and other native wildlife and fauna. The guidebooks had warned us about the coqui, but we didn't have any problem sleeping through the nightly coqui chirping and early morning rooster calls. We also enjoyed making use of the extras provided, like the beach towels and bodyboard. It was definitely one of my favourite vacations and we hope to return.

Great place with a great Hawaiian feel

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. The rent was fair. The home was clean, everything worked fine and the arrangements suited us well.

We took advantage of the avocado trees, the kitchen, basketball hoop and especially the great hot tub. Thanks to Kerwin for his help and for providing Fuji, our vacation pet dog who always welcomed us home with his little tail wagging. The birds were a pleasure as well.

We knew the home was a drive from town and the beach so that was expected.

Thanks again
