About mark

Free A/C electricity in master for thanksgiving and New Years if booked before 9/12/2017

mark purchased this house in 2013

Why mark chose Kona Coast

We fell in love with Kona Hale Kai Alii Pool Spa immediately. We found this home and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with friends and family.

What makes this house unique

Private swimming pool and spa and 180 degree views, spectacular sunsets, 2 minute walk to Honls Beach for surfing and snorkeling or a picnic lunch and a short walk to Historic downtown Kailua-Kona. This home is right in front of the Ironman turn-around buoy where spinner dolphins often congregate. You will see whales in season and many other ocean species. Comfortable Hawaiian living at it's best! All 3 upstairs bedrooms have a lanai with great views. The tradewinds flow through this house beautifully.

Great Summer Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Kona, spent 8 nights at the house!! Mark was great to work with and the location of the house worked great for our family! Between going to the beaches in the mornings, afternoons at the pool with grandkids, and having Ponchoman, a local musician entertain us for an evening at the pool while we bbq'd steaks, the week was perfect! Sunsets every evening while enjoying a glass of wine or a mai tai capped off every evening! Would definitely recommend for families looking to spend time on the Big Island!!

Mark is awesome.

By the time we got to Kona we kind of expected Mark to be there, felt like part of the family =) Through all of our communications with Mark we got to know him , super helpful and easy to deal with. MAHALO MARK!

Best family vacation - the house lacks nothing! It is a beach house and oh so comfortable, and that pool - best thing ever!

We will be back!

On a side note -Jeff ( he met is there on arrival) and Sherri are very helpful and delightful =)

Miss it already but have awesome memories to cherish =)........until next time ALOHA

Amazing Home on an amazing island!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the beginning Mark was an awesome host - kept in contact before stay letting us know of good times to come. Very professional and poitive. He was even there to open up house and show us around.

As soon as he opened doors all mouths of our party of 8 dropped - the views/pool/hot tub are straight out of a magazine. Loved watching sunsets and feeding the eels - very special for all of us. Home is stocked with all kinds of little extras (boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, cooler, flashlights, set of binoculars, ...) that helped to make trip smooth.

With doors/windows open very airy and breezy - no problem sleeping even with temps hot in June. Always hot Gramma slept in the room with AC and would just turn on at night and shut doors to get down to her normal sleeping temp of frigid but no one ever complained of being too hot.

Big Island is great - volcano park was awesome. Used the info large paperback book at the home (there are two of them) to help us tour around - brought us to some awesome beaches/waterfalls. Did night manta ray snorkel which was a once in lifetime experience - saw about 15-20 huge rays.

We are leaving with some awesome memories many of which have to do with Mark's amazing home and hospitality. Thanks much.

Our family of 10 fit comfortably.

The house does still need detail work done. The essentials were comfortable.

A slice of heaven in Hawaii - AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

From inquiry to booking to deposit return, Mark was extremely responsive and friendly. All coordination went smoothly. This house is VERY special. Being able to fall asleep to the sound of the Pacific Ocean is such a luxury. The ocean breezes keep the house cool - NO need for air conditioning. The newly remodeled kitchen was well stocked and perfect for preparing family meals on the patio. A short walk or drive to anything that you need in Kona. Minutes north of the one of the best snorkeling beaches on Hawaii. My favorite parts about the house were the amazing sliding doors that allowed the wind and waves to be enjoyed as much inside as outside and of course the pool located directly on the ocean. Our family hopes to return next year!

Good for the heart and soul!

  • 5 of 5

Where to Begin? This holiday was a journey for our family... We had originally planed a vacation with our best friends who not able to join us due to health reasons... Mark became a friend with a kind ear and heart who made it possible for us to continue on with our holiday plans... We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home and on the Big Island... Every day we would walk through the front doors and gasp at the stunning view! Those doors that open up and bring the outside in are the best! The kitchen is stocked with everything you need and more...My 4 year old lived in the pool and became a great little swimmer on this holiday! My 16 year old loved playing on the lava rock and checking out the crab and the local eel... We made it to a different beach every day, each one was unique and had something different to offer! We hope to be back in future... Thanks again Mark, Mahalo
