Aloha, My name is Sandra and I have lived in Kona since 1970. I came from California in search of cleaner beaches to ponder my future. As it turned out, I stayed - and have loved living here ever since. I have traveled the world and must say 'there is no place like home'. When my children grew and moved out I discovered that this home was too big for me, so I turned downstairs portion into a vacation retreat, which includes the pool, yard and downstairs kitchen and I'm so very happy to share this precious, peaceful place with visitors and share my knowledge of the Island as requested. I look forward to meeting you.
Sandra purchased this House in 1990
Why Sandra chose Kalaoa
This particular area of Kona is perfect as far as climate and location. I have lived in many different areas of the Island, and this location is, by far, the BEST. At 900 ft. elevation, the great views are expansive and the climate, temperate. Coastal living can be very hot in Hawaii, while we are enjoying soft trade winds to keep the temperatures perfect. I also love this location because there are approximately 12 world class golf courses within a short drive, and the harbor is just 3 miles away, a launching place for many water activities. We are on one full acre , a beautiful park with no neighbors below us, which gives us all the privacy you could ask for.
What makes this House unique
Wake up to the sweet sounds of songbirds, lounge around your private pool and soak up the warming rays of the sun. Leisurely prepare some breakfast in the outdoor kitchen while enjoying the peacefulness and beauty all around you. IF you feel like going for a little walk, this is one of Kona's most beautiful neighborhoods with safe, quiet roads and little hills or steep ones if you would like a challenge.

Relaxation at it’s best!
The property is absolutely gorgeous! We enjoyed the indoor/outdoor living. We have been to the big island before, so we didn’t do a lot of “touristy” things. We were there to relax and enjoy time together. This rental is perfect for that!
This home is great. Upscale neighbourhood. The beautiful yard, pool area and outdoor kitchen were highlights. Sandra was an awesome host. Thanks so much!
We had a wonderful stay here..location was easy to get to and a simply gorgeous view! The grounds are gorgeous and Sandra left us papayas, avocados and star fruit which were delicious! The hot tub at night was a welcomed treat after sightseeing during the day. Everything we needed was provided! We especially loved the outdoor kitchen! Would definitely stay here again:)
Beautiful property in the heart of it all
Our family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights. Sandra greeted us and showed us the property right away. It really is a gem - pick ripe fruit and eat it from her trees, hang out in the pool/hot tub after a long day of island adventures.
It’s great; you won’t be disappointed.
Eleven days in Paradise
My wife and I loved our eleven days we spent at this home.
The views from the home are outstanding.
Each morning eating our breakfast from the outside kitchen and listening to the birds and watching the clouds drift over the ocean are priceless memories.
The neighborhood and overall location of this home are excellent.
We will be back again to the Big Island and staying at this home.
Thank you for leaving a review. Some people don't understand the advantage of being at 1000 foot elevation but I'm happy you enjoyed the vantage point with the expansive views and the richness of the birdlife and beautiful vegetation. I look forward to your return.
Public tennis courts, many world class golf courses, great shopping and lots of different ocean sports are available within minutes from the house.
Kona is known for its world-class marlin fishing. We are almost directly above Honokohau Harbor which has a fun restaurant for lunch and is also where the fishing charters and many other ocean activities (sunset sails, manta ray snorkeling and diving cruises, zodiak tours, whale watching etc.) are based. There are some wonderful white sand beaches and tide pool areas within a 10 or 15 minute drive. Costco is our closest market and is a great place to stock up for your vacation. It is also the most economical place to buy gas.
