About the property

Two bedroom home with ocean view

Come to Kona to enjoy this darling 'home-away-from-home' surrounded by the beauty of the Kona Coast. Kona Breeze was completely renovated from floor to celing in 2013. It is downstairs from a private residence. You have complete privacy with your own entrance and parking. The home is located on a semi-private driveway elevated above the street. Alii Dr. is the main street that runs through the town of Kailua-Kona. We are approximately 4 miles south of town.

The location is just perfect being across the street from the ocean-front lots. The well-known Kahalu'u Snorkel Beach is a short distance to the south. A short walk north takes you to White Sands Beach, famous for its 'disappearing sand'. It is perfect for boogie boarding or just watching the clear blue waves rolling in. Also located close by are several surfing spots. The lanai in front has a comfortable sitting area where you can see the ocean and all the activity passing by on Alii Dr. The back yard features a large lawn area with beautiful plants of all kinds. There is a large covered patio with a BBQ and next to that there is an additional sitting area with a swing for relaxing after a busy Kona day.

The interior features a nice comfortable living room with large screen TV and views of the ocean. There is a full kitchen with dining area and door to the patios and yard. The master bedroom features a queen size bed. The second bedroom has two twin size beds. There is a large walk-in shower in the bathroom.

In the laundry room you will find beach chairs, boogie boards, a cooler and beach umbrellas. WiFi coverage is present for laptops and ipads.

Come and enjoy the Kona Coast and the Big Island of Hawaii and all they have to offer.

About Bill & Dennise North

Dennise's parents fell in love with Hawaii in the late 1950's. They visited Kona and decided it was their place to lay down roots. In 1979 they built what is now our part time home. Three generations of our family have been able to enjoy wonderful, lasting memories of good times and the beauty of Hawaii.

Bill & Dennise North purchased this house in 1979

Why Bill & Dennise North chose Kailua-Kona

Bill & Dennise completely remodeled the downstairs Ohana and converted it to a vacation rental

What makes this house unique

The location on Alii Drive is within walking distance or a short drive to Kahaluu or 'Snorkle Beach' and Magic or White Sands Beach. The ocean is just across the street so you can hear the waves at night. You can sit on the front lanai and watch the ocean and the action going by on Alii Drive or sit in the back patio and relax and enjoy the beauty of the large back yard. We are less than three miles in either direction for shopping and restaurants. We have filled Kona Breeze with pretty local art, comfy furniture and everything you might need to enjoy your stay on the Big Island of Hawaii

Best ever!

  • 5 of 5

While I hate to write a glowing review because too many people will go and it may be harder to get back, but I TOTALLY loved our time in the Kona Breeze. Bill and Dennise have provided the best home away from home experience in Kona. Close to everything and clean and charming. We had bird seed to put out for the amazing array of birds that would visit each day and a neighbor kitty who came to visit which kept us from missing out own cats. The beds were comfortable and the sheets and towels were of high quality. Their local caretaker, Kevin, was helpful and responsive with a couple of issues that popped up but nothing hindered our lovely time there. Can hardly wait to go back!

Everything was close and a lovely long day around the island took us to the Botanical gardens, the volcano winery, the glowing volcano in about 13 hours. We were sorry we did not realize that that was the night of the lunar eclipse! Downtown Kona is close, only a few minute drive and lots of lovely shops and the old historic church which had a wonderful and vibrant worship service on Sunday morning.

Mahalo again Bill and Dennise!!

Cute little place, perfect for catching sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

Cute little bit place! It’s right across from the water, and easy to catch sunsets! Fully furnished, off street parking, close to the airport and grocery stores/restraunts. We used it as a launchpad for adventures across the island!!!

Great location with a lovely backyard!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Kona Breeze. On our first day we took a 1min car ride to Kahalu'u Beach to unload our snorkel gear in the convenient parking lot and saw a sea turtle within 10 mins! Our kids also had a great surf lesson there and were up on a wave in 30 mins. We loved the great backyard and spent most of our time at the house outside on the back patio. The second bedroom was a small, but still worked fine for two teenage boys. We appreciated the convenient central location as it made for a great starting point to any part of the island (you definitely want to have a car).
