Update for the Volcano: I took some recent photo of our Kona Ocean and Blue Skies. The media seems to be scary, but we are located over 90 miles away from the active Volcano. My home is at the Ocean so the strong Breezes helps to keep our air clear. At times when there is absolutely no breeze we will all get the Vog ( like smog, but, from the Volcano). For us, this is all Normal, since the Volcano has been erupting since the 1980's! So, please do not hesitate to book a stay. We are at a perfect location!!
Added a few photos of May 17, 2018 at Kahalu'u Beach, as the Kilauea Volcano huge erupted, visitors enjoyed a wonderful morning at low tide.
Hawaiian- Oriental Beach House at Kahalu'u National Historical District . Hawaiian Kings and Chiefs lived here because of the location!. They loved to Surf, fish, and grow amazing gardens. Kahalu'u Beach is only a 4 minute walk , and has the only Surfing Hei'au in the State of Hawaii, where the Hawaiians prayed to the God "Akua" for Surf. 2 minute drive to "Magic Sands Beach", best body surfing beach in Kona.
Splash Pool addition, see photo!

Behind the house is an open field with large monkey pod trees with lots of singing birds. Some of the endangered birds live here, the Hawaiian Hoary Bats, and Hawaiian I'O hawk. Pheasants are often seen hanging out in the trees.
Often times you will see the full moon, and well as the amazing Sunsets at the same time.
We own the home next door! Great for large families, re unions, check out Hale O Makai, VRBO #49376 sleeps additional 10, total combined 20 people! The home combined is quite huge. .
Alii Drive is Kona's Ocean Scenic Route. You will love the location! The supermarket, and shopping center is only one mile from the house. Every Saturday there is a farmers market, where local produces, and home made products are sold. Cut flowers, baked goods, honey, jam, and crafts. . Its great to support our local businesses, and the supermarket KTA is also a local business of 100 years. Live entertainment happens once a month.
Guest love going to the beach at least twice a day. You don't have to worry about getting a parking space. As this beach is the most popular Snorkeling beach on the entire Island, in my opinion, the State. The ocean park is absolutely a playground in Paradise, fishes galore! Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen, and get your cameras ready for some amazing life time memories.

Owner of Pacific Vibrations Surf Shop. Kona's first Surf Shop since 1978. Located across the Kailua Kona Pier, where the start and finish of the Ironman. Directors of the Official Ironman Triathlon World Championship WaterPatrol, since 1982. Our shop retails top quality brands of Surfboards, GoPro Camera's, Surf wear and more. Our store is not only a place to shop, but, a place where friends often come by just to say Hello, and spread the joy of " Aloha"!! Kanaka Maoli, Born in the Territory of Hawaii.
Why Owner chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
All about the Location, Love Kahalu'u Beach. My Keiki's ( children) playground in the 1970's, we gathered on the beach 5 days a week with friends. They learned to Swim and Surf here, the weather is perfect. Fishes, turtles, and monk seals live here. We loved it so much we purchased two home side by side for our Ohana ( family) We now enjoy sharing our homes with visitors and hope they will enjoy and appreciate this wonderful place on earth. We hope our guest take back with them, wonderful memories of their vacation.
What makes this House unique
The Ocean and Open Space, connection to the Aina (land) is amazing. Being Kanaka's we cherish the old style of single family dwelling, we love trees and open ocean. With 42 acres of Trees behind our homes, hundreds of birds, it is peaceful. ' There is now a movement to Protect Kahalu'u. Makai was once destroyed by development and hotels, now they are being bulldozed. The Keauhou Beach hotel is now being demolished by Kamehameha School. Restoring open space is wonderful !! Kahalu'u will be a Cultural learning center for the Keiki and Kupuana, located directly next to Kahalu'u Beach. This is such a special place, the" National and State Historic Kahalu'u District." We support and strive to protect our Cultural and Natural Resources for the Now and Future Generation. To be connected is a Blessing.

Great trip. Great house and awesome location. House was well stocked with everything you would need, just need groceries. House was just a few minute walk to Kahalu'u Beach, great snorkeling! Great having my morning coffee every morning on the lanai!
I'm Happy everything was Great! We try our best, so, its nice to know.
Mahalo Nui Loa!
Great location and amazing lanai
Loved the house. The location was perfect. We could have sat on the lanai for hours at a time. The back house had quite a bit of ants and bugs, but that is to be expected on the big island. Would definitely stay again!
Aloha Amy, I asked why was the ants and one roach issue not brought up at the time of your stay, and you said "I forgot". I asked if the problem started the first night of your stay, and you replied "I could not remember".
I was only alerted on your public comment. I asked why, and you said you remembered when you reached home killing ants.
You said they came out only at night by the toilet, you counted 1 to 10. So, I set an ant trap and found one ant. Otherwise, if it was a huge problem I would have called a professional to take care of it.
Guest who stayed before and after you had no complaints, and plan to come back to stay.
Sorry for any insects at the time of your stay. Just wish I would have known at the time, I would have helped. I try hard to make everyone's stay pleasant and enjoyable. Staying Positive and taking care of any negative matters. Mahalo, Simmy
Charming house near great beach!
Quiet and charming house away from the bustle of Kona. Plenty of space and lots of beds for a family group. Lovely decor and great deck with view. Walk to Kahalu'u Beach--snorkel and beach gear provided. Big kitchen and gas grill. Would come again!
Mahalo for taking the time to write this review. I'm happy my home worked out for your family. Yes, please come again, you are always welcome!
Stayed here 9 days (fam of 5 with an 11, 9 & 7 yrs old) and had a wonderful time. The house is at walking distance of perfect snorkeling beach and a somewhat longer walk (took the car) of Magic sands beach (white sandy "brochure beach"). spotted turtles, nemo's and numerous other beautiful fish, oh, and a Monta Ray!! A short drive (5 minutes) and you're at the spot with restaurants, bars etc of Kona. We used the house as a base for all the stuff we did all over the island (the 7 wonders of the Big island) and it was a perfect place to come back to.
I don't think it says it in the description but Simmy, the owner, thought of everything. there are body boards (4), a surfboard, snorkel gear (6), riff shoes, buckets & spades etc. Everything you need!!
We will certainly come back, already looking for x-mass :-)
This was a favorite with our family!
We all loved staying at Simmy's place! The view from the patio is beautiful and quiet. The location is perfect for both beaches (surfing and snorkling at one beach, boogie boarding at the other beach). We were able to enjoy many half-day excursions form the home and come back to a comfortable, homey retreat with wifi, full kitchen, all the beach toys, and plenty of room to spread out. Great for kids of all ages (crib to independent teens). We really liked the short drive to the shopping center (1 mile) that had everything: fresh and big selection of food, huge drug store, cinema, restaurants, urgent care, etc... Simmy was very kind and helpful getting us settled in. We recommend surf lessons with Wes at Kona Town Surf Adventures, a 5 minute walk from the house, good with adults and kids and nice to talk with between catching waves :0) So many parks and things to see/do from this house, next time we will stay longer here here and just drive a little farther to other excursions north and east instead of packing up and moving to those locations. Everything worked great here too, big clean fridge, lots of fans, great breeze, dishwasher and washer/dryer too!
perfect place to enjoy a family vacation
The house was beautiful, and the location is great. We had 6 people of 3 generations there, and we enjoyed the large lanai with a beautiful, unobstructed view of the ocean. Watched the sunset almost every evening. The interior is lovely wood floors and an "old Hawaiian" feel. The house is less than half a mile from the Kahalu'u Beach, which has great snorkling and good beginner surfing. Other beaches are nearby. The house has beach chairs, umbrellas, boogy boards, etc for use on the beach. It gets cool breezes so that you never need AC. It's about 4 miles from the main town--just far enough to avoid the most touristy sections except when you want to be there. I'd recommend it wholeheartedly.
Kahalu'u is a Historical Preservation District. Hawaiian High Chiefs and Kings were born in Kahalu'u. They lived here for all its beauty and because it was close one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii, Kahalu'u. There was plenty of fishes and still does. And also Surf in our protected bay. Kahalu'u beach park is 4.2 acre opened in 1953. It has fishponds, bathing ponds, and popular is the shallow, calm water, which teems with tame, colorful reef fish, coral head, and turtles. The Kohala Center sponsors the Reef Teach program, in which volunteers educate visitors about the marine life and water quality in order to minimize damage to the natural resources . There is still standing the ancient Surf Heiau, where they often prayed for waves. Its a very special place, and you will be amazed. We are located on the race courses of the 'Ironman Triathlon World Championship', and the Lavaman races. Our location is key, numerous beach parks are all within 10 miles, including White Sands, Pahoehoe County park, Honokohau Harbor, Old Airport has an Olympic swimming pool. gymnasium, football and soccer fields, a skateboard facility, ball fields, and community center.
