Huge Custom Beach Home, Incredible Views, Handicap Friendly! Sleeps 6. Beautiful
For all of you who are “on-the-fence” about where to stay in Hawaii, we would like to share some important things to consider.
When it comes to airfare, renting a car, food, gas and misc. expenses, everyone who ventures out to Hawaii will pretty much pay the same price. The real difference is the lodging. A lot of people overlook this important decision and often find themselves having a sub par vacation based on where they ended up staying. 'We get it! ' You thought that you would save a few bucks, however, the few bucks that were saved on paper did
nothing to ultimately enhance your trip.
That's where Living Aloha makes a difference.
For the value, we offer a clean, comfortable and elegant accommodation that will absolutely enhance your stay in Hawaii.
We invite you to view our photos and video to see the difference.
We are offering the Penthouse level of our 5,000 sq. ft recently finished Beach home starting at $160.00. You get the top floor, 2 bedroom, 2 full bathroom, huge penthouse suite that sleeps 5. All of our amenities are clean, custom and brand new! The rest of the house is officially closed, which means no other people will stay in this Huge Home or on the property while you are there. Lastly, this Hawaiian Palace is only a 5 min. walk to the beach! What more can we say? it is a fantastic deal. Please compare our photos and videos with others on the site. Our aim is to get it right, and make sure our guests are happy.
If this makes sense to you please read on and get more details. Aloha! Simple Pleasures.
Our official Property Description
From the start, the concept behind this truly majestic build was very clear, tastefully work with the land, capture its essence, and “Live Aloha.”
The Hawaiian Islands are simply one of the world’s most desirable locations, truly a tropical paradise beyond compare. A perfect fit for a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a once in a lifetime dream. With that said, we warmly offer our personal contribution to the islands by launching our most beautiful creation to date, “Living Aloha”.
Situated approximately 45 minutes south of Kailua- Kona, Living Aloha is close enough to partake in all of Kona’s nightlife, yet far enough away to marinate in a real feeling of authentic Hawaiian lifestyle. Once you set foot on the property, it will be obvious that your new Hawaiian home was the right choice. This freshly finished custom home is easily on par with the highest of high-end resorts, but at nearly half the cost.
Our “ Plumeria Lined Paradise”, a five minute walk to the beach, not only offers some of the most magnificent ocean views, but our guests will appreciate the natural breezes from the Hawaiian trade winds lufting through our 16ft ceilings. Luxurious stone floors were thoughtfully placed in all common areas to ensure our guests keep cool. The full size custom bathrooms, made of both stone and marble, enjoy upgraded touches such as custom cabinets, vessel sinks and bidets to enhance your experience. For the utmost comfort, each bedroom has been outfitted with luxury hotel grade queen size pillow-top mattresses, finished off with mahogany sleigh bed frames. Additionally, the bedrooms include mahogany hardwood floors, your own private bath, wireless internet, and safe deposit boxes. Our tastefully executed kitchen, designed to be a “social kitchen”, places the cook in a position that faces the entire living room, lanai and all guests while preparing meals whether dining indoors or using the formal dining table outdoors on the lanai. Last but not least, the crown jewel of Living Aloha is our 1,000-sq.ft ocean facing lanai. You can easily see 40 miles of spectacular coastline views in each direction! It really equates to being the ultimate outdoor living room on the property. This is where all the sunsets, whale watching and outdoor socializing happens. Whether it is a glass of wine, reading a book, or stretching out on the 8ft. daybed, this spot is all Hawaii. From our vantage point, the mixture of fresh floral air mixed with the tranquil ocean breeze cannot be put into words. This is truly a space to be experienced. With this much space, we also created an outdoor “dining room”. This was brilliant! With million dollar views, this is the perfect spot for our guest to gather and have breakfast before a day of site seeing, lunch after snorkeling at the beach or a beautiful backdrop for a romantic dinner at sunset. It doesn’t get any better.
Living Aloha to us means, “seamless harmony”. Understanding that your Hawaii vacation means everything to you and trips like this don’t happen everyday, our focus was to anticipate your needs and exceed your expectations.
We thank you for considering us and wish you nothing but Aloha, and remember,

Sports & Adventure Activities
Simple and peaceful stay
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is very comfortable and clean. We loved the beds and high quality sheets, they are very comfortable. Looking out the master bed rooom is a sloped hill and the vast Hawai’i coast, with no neighbors. It was very quite and peaceful. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us.
Great home, great views
This is my second stay. It was equally as wonderful as the first. The view is the most enjoyable experience. You could sit and do absolutely nothing but watch and listen to the ocean if so desired. We have always kept busy with swimming, sunning, and snorkeling nearby. The provided beach amenities are just a small indication of the care the owners, Mik'a and Lisa have given to their guests. They are very responsive and helpful at any time. Mahalo for our wonderful visit.
5 stars plus!
We loved our stay and did not want to leave. Thank you Mik’a and Lisa for opening up your simple pleasures home for us to enjoy. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful home base to hang out at and come back to after our daily excursions in paradise. We highly recommend and would definitely come back.
With warm and grateful regards,
The Morgan Family
The perfect get away. Unreal amazing view.
My only complaint would be I could live here and unfortunately had to leave. We based out of here for Daddy at the volcanoes national park and touring around the south island and kona stress
This house was excellent! Amazing view, nicely designed interior and deck space, great amenities; we would love to stay here again next year!
Nice place with great view!
Our stay was in early October and everything was great. We own a lot in the area and have stayed at several rentals in KP.- This one is arguably the best!!
Enjoy swimming, diving, snorkeling and kayaking from Kaohe Bay just a short 5 minute walk from the house.
Walk the historic Kings Trail to other secluded beaches and an ancient cinder cone.
Visit a working coffee farm and explore the ancient City of Refuge (Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park) located approximately 20 minutes from the house.
Visit Volcano National Park - an easy 1.5 hr. drive from the house.
