About Emmy and Bob

Aloha and Welcome to Kona Vacation Rentals. This is Emmy and Bob. We are the owners of these lovely vacation rentals in Kona. We lived in Silicon Valley California for over 25 years and worked as software engineers and entrepreneurs. We built several successful start up companies and pursued our entrepreneur dreams there. We loved living in the California Bay Area and still consider it our "Home on the Mainland".

Emmy's lifelong dream has always been to live by the ocean. When we first truly memorable experience in Hawaii was the family vacation on the cruise ship that visited each of the Hawaiian islands. We fall in love with Kona, Big Island the best. There is so much to do here, with crystal clear water for snorkeling, rainforests, waterfalls, and volcanoes to explore, and mountains that almost reach the stars.

We bought our first dream house in 2013, and three years later, just after our daughter graduated from high school in California in 2016. Then we moved to Kona. Besides high tech, one of Emmy’s lifelong interests has been real estate. Every destination Emmy visit, she love exploring the properties in the area. Combining our love for Hawaii and homes, now we own and manage 8 beautiful vacation rental houses.

We have put much effort into every house to make them as comfortable and welcoming as your home. We use the latest technologies on the rental houses, with smart lock, amazon Alexa, comprehension customized online welcome book for each guest and much more.

We are responsible and responsive to your inquiries. We live close to all of our rental houses, we are always available for our guests. We do our best to provide the best services to our guests.

Why Emmy and Bob chose Kailua-Kona

I've always felt at home with the tropics and the ocean. The landscape and scenery of the Big Island is unparalleled with anything else. From volcanoes to waterfalls, my family's favorite part of Kailua-Kona is the snorkeling that gives you a peek into the vast and amazing ocean life. Kona, the town itself also has a great, laid-back vibe and easy access to beaches, stores, farmer's market, and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Not many properties are on Lyman's Bay the best surf spot in Hawaii Island! This place is the surfer's dream! Located at Keolonahihi on Kamoa Point (Lyman's point), one of Hawaii's most sacred and spiritual places, this home has spectacular ocean views from bedrooms and the lanai (patio). Magic Sands Beach, great for boogie boarding, swimming, and building sand castles, is just a 10 minute walk away. The two kitchens and large living rooms are perfect for big groups. This is our most popular vacation rental and we are delighted to share our home with you. We hope you make yourself at home and enjoy your stay.

Loved this houses!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. This was our first visit to Hawaii, and this house was a perfect choice for us. We have a big family and there was plenty of room and privacy for everyone. The second floor deck is incredible with great views of the bay and coastline. We spent hours and hours relaxing there while watching the waves and surfers, and even saw a whale with her baby. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, and had several BBQs by the poolside. The deck around the pool is huge. Emmy, the owner, was really friendly and easy to communicate with. We loved this house and hope to come back again in a few years.

Beautiful view amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the house with its beautiful view and location. The entire family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. The house is very clean and with everything we needed and more, from beach towels, beach chairs, a lot of pool toys. The kids especially had a great time. They didn’t want to leave the house to go to out to explore the island, since they were having so much fun at the pool and playing in the house. Almost each day we eat dinner on the Lanai and enjoy the beautiful sunset.

For the adults, the house had great privacy and several outdoor sitting and eating areas. We cooked and barbecued a lot and the fully equipped kitchen had everything we needed. The house is very close to Magic sand beach. Older kids like to go there for boogie boarding. Also the 5 min drive to get to Kona restaurants, farmers market, made our stay very convenient.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was a very good week for our large group. The jacuzzi and pool and the views were great. A few minor issues, but thought we shouldn’t have had for the $’s we’re paying . . . Had a fully stuffed dryer still going when we arrived at 4:20pm, ran out of toilet paper on our 3rd day, also had to buy hand soap and dish washing liquid. The outdoor grill burners needs to be looked at, lots of hot spots and dead spots. Otherwise we had a great time. Thank you.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family gathering. There is lots of space and possibilities for sleeping arrangements. The lanai is lovely. Two of our guests slept on the outdoor bed every night. The waterfront location is great; though none of us dared climb into the water right out front, we spent a lot of time exploring in the rocks. The park next door is difficult to traverse, but has a fascinating history. The house is located right on Ali’i drive. You can hear some traffic from the pool area when it’s busy, but it is competing with the sounds of the waves. When pulling out of the driveway, we always had a second person look out for traffic. The house is well equipped; we were only missing one thing, which the owners delivered within hours of our phone call. Wonderful!
