This was our second multi generational vacation at this property and we are excited about planning for the next one! Location is perfect. House is perfect - the new doors that open to the pool and ocean create a superb ambiance and constant access to the beautiful air. Owners are super responsive and thoughtful. Thank you!

Premier Oceanfront Owner and Amazing Superhost with A Plus Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Kona several times, always staying in a hotel so we were not quite sure what to expect when we rented this house. From the very beginning, Mark, was an absolute delight to work with. He was always available to answer questions, and he had suggestions for places to go in Kona that we had not heard about. Mark has thought of everything a visitor would need in the house except the groceries! The kitchen is stocked with coffee, seasonings, and all cookware one would need. Nice, heavy beach towels are provided for the swimming pool. The washer and dryer came in handy since we were there for over a week. The beds were comfortable and bedrooms spacious. The house was clean and

beautifully decorated with a tranquil beach/Hawaiian theme.

The moment we walked into the home, our hearts fluttered! The views from every room were incredible, indescribable – the ocean is in front of you at every window. We watched whales do complete breaches out of the water and dolphins playing in large pods every day. Mark has even provided binoculars that we used every day! We enjoyed the pool and had many laughs playing in the water. We were wanting a relaxing vacation and Captain Mark provided it for us. We laughed every day until we cried. We left there with incredible, wonderful memories.

Mahalo Captain Mark for providing such an incredible place to vacation and ensuring that we we had everything we needed to feel at home.

Ideal Kona Beach House and location !

  • 5 of 5

How to summarize an amazing 10 day stay ? Well to begin with, Capt. Mark was very helpful assisting us and assuring us of our dates and details . But wow when you walk through the front door of this lovely Kona beach home , you instantly feel the aloha and your jaw drops for that 'Ahhhhh' feeling we all seek on a beach house vacation. There simply can't be a better on-the-water experience in a beach home vacation rental. The sound of the ocean is so relaxing and it's all right there ! Literally right there, you are on the water. The home has every comfort and amenity one could want. We were a large family group of grandparents , kids and grandkids (teens). We saw dolphins from the deck and patio nearly every morning along with whales and sunsets to die for. The layout of the home is great for a family or group and the many decks were very enjoyable and relaxing. Kitchen has everything you could want and is very updated and new. Plenty of seating all around and did I mention the hot tub and pool?!! While you watch the waves come in you are enjoying the hot tub and pool. I think the biggest compliment to the house is, as we planned activities and day trips we made sure there was going to be ample time to just 'be at home' because the house is such that you simply do not want to leave it. Also great proximity to town, easily walkable and we did walk many times. Look forward to returning soon Capt Mark! Thanks for everything ! Mahalo

Unbelievable home in a stunning location! Photos only provide a glimpse of what this home offers.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 spent 9 amazing days in Mark’s Kona home, which was definitely not long enough. The moment we walked through the front doors to the stunning sight of the ocean waves splashing into the gorgeous pool, we knew we were in the best home in Kona! The living room, dining room and kitchen flow onto the lanai and pool areas and reflect an island vibe...from the rattan furnishings to the soothing choice of wall colors and playful art, it makes you feel welcome.

We hadn’t planned to dine in for all our dinners, but the kitchen was well stocked with cookware and staples (plus our son and wife are amazing cooks) so we enjoyed dinners at home, eating at the large outdoor table and thoroughly enjoying the warm evenings and beautiful setting.

We had busy days filled with snorkeling, parasailing, beach combing and exploring in our 4 wheel drive vehicles but made a point of being home each day by 5:30 ish so we could take pictures of the gorgeous sunsets and help with meal prep.

After dinner we grabbed flashlights to check on the resident eels! Prehistoric looking creatures who have an appetite for bits of leftover poke.

We had the pleasure of seeing whales, dolphins, turtles, black crabs, sea urchins, sea slugs and many of the same fish that we saw while snorkeling-all from the back patios.

I could go on and on even more, but then Mark’s house will always be booked and I might have to wait too long for a return adventure!

Perfect Oceanfront Holiday

  • 5 of 5

House was amazing, lots of room for the whole family! We stayed for a week, and even as a family of 8 everyone had their own space. All the rooms were nicely decorated and beds were extremely comfortable. Kids loved watching the fish, dolphins and eels from the pool deck everyday, and loved when the water would splash into the pool. Having the pool and hot tub were great after a day of exploring. House was a great home base for travelling the big island. We did a full island circle tour and loved visiting the volcano and all the nearby beaches. The kitchen is set-up well and we enjoyed many family dinners on the patio, where we would have nightly sunset photo competitions. House is close enough to downtown, that you can walk to shops and restaurants as well. We loved our stay and hope to return one day! Mahalo
