Beautiful Sunsets Great Elevation Tropical Getaway Hawaiian Home

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Hawaiian Style Nice Custom 2 bd/1ba on the World Famous Kona Coffee Belt. Beautiful Tropical surroundings with coffee, avo, papaya, banana etc trees and flowers. Wonderful Lanai to watch the Awesome Sunsets over the Ocean. Kealakekua is in the Kona District on the Big Island. It is just South of Kailua-Kona (Ironman start and finish area) and North of Kealakekua Bay (One of the best snorkeling spots in the World!!!) This Home is away from all the tourist traps yet only 8-10 miles away from the heart of Kailua-Kona with all it's shops and activity booths. There is a local Hawaiian town a few blocks away. The homes sits at a little cooler elevation which is very desirable.:) Pictures are all on property and will give you a good idea of what to expect but please feel free to ask me questions and tell me what you are looking for. I did not post pictures of nearby beaches and other Big Island areas that are not on this property. Home comes with plenty of beach towels, beach umbrella, chair, coolers and even a couple kayaks under the house you are welcome to dust off and use at no extra cost. This has been my family home for many years looking for travelers that will enjoy it and treat it with Aloha :) It's a Fantastic property! Know you will love it!!! Rates are low I wanted to make it affordable for couples and based on a two person occupancy there will be a $20 a day charge per additional guest. 808 937-7439 If you look at My first review (last one down)they describe it perfectly and gives more info so check that out if you want more info :) This is NOT a party house at times owner or friend of owner could be staying in downstairs Ohana. There is NOT a communal kitchen or anything like that. You have your own private 2bd home upstairs with lanai and entrance and yard. Your privacy is always respected :) but I can be reached easily by phone or will have a local contact person when I am off island. There are frogs on property that you will probably never see but Will hear at night :) There are wild chickens that cruise through the property from time to time and have had roosters on occasion. This home is known as a very peaceful place to stay I just like to try to tell you anything someone may consider as a negative so there are no surprises and you have an Awesome stay:) There is a Queen size bed in the master bedroom and a double in the smaller bedroom. NON smoking on Entire Property. Think this covers it please just ask if you have any questions and I will be happy to answer them :) Mahalo

ps Yes there is wifi

About Carole Ward

Not the best on computers not sure how to get the red out on photo ....I raised my children in this home. Have lived on the Big Island for over 25 + years. Love it here feel free to ask questions. Happy to give you some local tips.

Why Carole Ward chose Kealakekua

Awesome property! it's why I have called it home for so long :)

It's tropical you know you are in Hawaii it's cooler than town and away from all the traffic noise but close enough that its not a mission to go to town and back. Kealakekua is considered a very desirable area to live on the Big Island it is hard to find a place to buy because people move here and don't leave. The high school is filled with children who have parents that went there as children. To me it was the perfect place to raise my children and a place they want to return to when they are ready to settle down and start their own families:)

A Great place to stay in Kealakekua

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a small house away from Kailua Kona town and found this home delightful. It is the owner's personal home and comes very well stocked with everything you could ever need. The VRBO descriptive is quite accurate and there were zero negative surprises. The owner, Carole, is delightful and an excellent communicator. There are local restaurants in Kealakekua and shopping fairly near. We did go into town twice during our three week stay but were quite content spending our time locally finding the beach parks, walks, etc. to be just fine and most importantly not at all crowded. I should add that the views / sunsets from the house are totally beautiful and that we'd recommend this house to anyone who wants to see the Big Island in the best possible way.

This the most amazing place to stay in all of Kona, Hi.

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house was ours to share for 8 amazing days in Kealakekua, we were so busy seeing the sites and meeting new family but always came HOME to this, the view, chickens, mongooses and frogs to listen to as we relaxed at the end of the day. We will be back, Carol is wonderful, she made our trip extra special. The house is filled with all of the things we needed, and I am sure the TV was great but we saw no need to even turn it on, just sitting on the lanai was all of the entertainment we needed. Thank You Carol for the wonderful memories!!

The photos didn't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

The property was incredibly beautiful, from the tropical flowers and trees surrounding the house to the great views from the large wraparound porch. The photos do not do it justice! This house felt private and tucked away from the street, and absolutely everything was provided for use. Also, the entire house was exquisitely clean.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful haven!

Simple and easy and stress free booking.

LOTS of privacy. Well equipped with ammenities. Beautiful and clean rooms and kitchen. Enjoyed the porch and hammock and chairs outside as well as the airy and open livin room with views outside all around.

Good quiet neighbourhood and close to activities and groceries.

Host was accessible by text and returned questions promptly without compromising privacy or feeling like we were being checked in on.

Tropical Get-away

  • 5 of 5

From the first moment we saw our home for next 2 weeks, we were delighted. So private with surrounding palms, fruit trees and Poincianas. Our very welcoming host, provided guidelines to make our stay so comfortable and pleasant, including a basket of fruit and treats left besides our house key. Brand new gas range and new washing machine were also available if needed. Loved our pair of Gecko friends, whose skills at catching tiny insects a delight to watch. Watching birds while enjoying leisurely breakfasts was a treat, even the free-loading Myna birds attacking the ripening papayas. The little 'invasive colqui' frogs were pleasant reminders of nights in the tropics.

The location was excellent. We're hoping there will be an opportunity to stay here again.

Mahalo Carole,

David & Pam
