About Dena

Wil and Dena are the owners of this magnificent property

Dena purchased this house in 2012

Why Dena chose Kona Coast

Its known that the very best climate found on the west side of the Big Island is found in Kona Heavens and we have always had excellent snorkeling on this island.

What makes this house unique

We had been searching for our special hawaiian home for quite some time. When this home became available, we were impressed with the gorgeous view, the layout of the house, the attached garage, the huge lanai and the stunning landscaping. It also had 21 excellent reviews on VRBO.

Wonderful Xmas Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults, 2 kids - 5 & 10) rented this house for 11 days. It is a beautiful home & property! The lanai was a great place to hang out with the kids or on our own. The house is well set up - just add groceries. The home stays cool and comfortable. The location was great to get into town, Costco or out to the highway to the beach or an adventure. It is in a beautiful neighbourhood and quiet.

The Kailua-Kona area is fantastic and highly recommend visiting this area. We would love to return - more to see and do!

The owner, Dena was also great to work with!

(We have a son with Cerebral Palsy & vision impairment (he is mobile) and was able to move around well in this home.)

Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed for the Christmas week and had a fantastic time. This was our 4th visit to Kona and staying at the Orchid house was by far the most relaxing. The views of the ocean from the patio make you want to just sit back and watch the sun setting over the ocean. The house itself is beautiful and fully equipped. The location as other reviewers commented is ideal since it is ~1200ft above sea level making it much less humid & hot during the day. No need for air conditioning and it was even cool at night (66F), so sleeping was great. It's only a few miles from the airport and downtown Kailua-Kona, but so peaceful & quiet. Dena was fantastic to work with & I hope we can visit again soon!

Perfect spot for extended stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well appointed for an extended stay on the Big Island. The layout is perfect for a family or several couples, with an open living dining kitchen and bedrooms tucked away from the publics areas. Additionally, the yard area is fantastic & beautiful, with a expansive Lanai facing west to watch the sunsets and the morning surf break. Their are tropical fruit trees to enjoy, as well as beautiful orchids and tropical plants that are well maintained. The lower west yard is a largely empty that was perfect for a little running around or ball play.

The best attribute of this rental is its location. It's up in the foothills enough to stay out of the heat and mugginess of the Kona Coast, but accessible to adventures to all parts of the Big Island. If you really want to explore, but have a comfortable home base, we couldn't find a better rental on the Island.

Relaxing & Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here to race the Ironman world champs. Given all the stress the event entails, this place was so perfect. Fairly close to the 'events' (~10 min drive) but FAR AWAY from all the hectic stuff. The views were beautiful, the house in great condition, and it definitely stayed cooler at night despite visiting at a very warm time of the year. We had 6 in the house very comfortably. We definitely have NO complaints about Kona Orchid House and we'd come back here in a heartbeat! Also friendly owners who worked with us when/as needed. Definitely a perfect review on this one. :)

Wonderful Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family of five enjoyed our first visit to the Orchid House in early March for 8 days. We had a wonderful time and particularly enjoyed spending time on the huge lanai and in the yard. The trees, shrubs and plants are beautiful, and the large lawn is perfect for Frisbee. The panoramic view of the Harbor is tremendous. No pictures can do it justice. Due to the high elevation, nights are cooler than in the City of Kona. The setting is private, peaceful and relaxing, yet the house is conveniently located near shopping and the airport. Thanks, Dena, for making our visit so carefree, and we hope to do this again next year. Aloha!
