About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

This exquisitely appointed, almost beachfront home is perfectly maintained with cozy comfort in every room. Spectacular ocean views from the home and the special vista viewing tower makes this 4BD/3BA the perfect Hawaiian getaway.

The 1/4 acre lot is completely fenced in for privacy and relaxation from the outside world. The main house has 2 upstairs bedrooms, one queen and one double. The den (which is ground level) doubles as a bedroom and even has sliding doors to close it off for privacy. The largest bedroom and bath has its own entry and is private from the main living area. The room boasts a king size bed and a 50' plasma TV including cable. All bedrooms are equipped with air-conditioning units. All mattresses are tempurpedic. The fully equipped kitchen has marble counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The dining area has a large rectangular table that has two benches and two chairs, easily accommodating at least 6 people. Both the upstairs and the downstairs have comfortable sitting areas, the upstairs boasting an ocean view plus a 50' plasma TV with cable. There are ceiling fans in all the bedrooms and living areas. There is a full indoor laundry room separate from the house.

Outside you will discover a large deck perfect for cooking a meal or relaxing in the hot tub. There is a Weber Genesis propane grill and an outdoor dining area for 6. There are two additional chairs, an umbrella for the table, and seat cushions as well if needed. The hot tub is covered under the deck so that you can enjoy its splendor rain or shine. The two chaise lounges on the lawn are perfect for reading a book while catching some rays. The house provides 2 boogie boards and snorkel gear to help enhance your ocean adventures

The property features a special viewing tower that is accessible from both the upstairs living room and the downstairs deck. The observation tower has a table and fours chairs. Spend the morning up here with a cup of coffee or the evening with a glass of wine, either way, the coastline views and ocean breezes are bound to make you never want to leave.

Due to the home's location on a private road, the area is quiet and peaceful. Perfect for watching sunsets and breaching whales. The excitement does pick up though a few times a year during the world famous Iron Man event. During this time, you have front row private viewing to both the swimming and running events. Just 1.5 miles down the road is the famous Mokuaikaua Church in downtown Kona. Water access is just a few steps from the front gate.

Reviewer Comments:

Unbelievable.. The house, neighborhood, location was perfect. Exactly 2.0 miles from the famous ironman swim start.. It was the right choice for us competing in Ultraman 2016. The views were great, house worked well for our group of 6 and we really enjoyed the jacuzzi sunsets.

Fabulous Kona Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Kona for a family wedding. I wanted to thank Hawaii Life and the owners of Kai Vista for a great stay. We are a family of five and the house was perfect for our kids (ages 9-14). The kitchen was very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the property was quiet. The owners recently added air conditioning, which was appreciated in the upstairs of the main house. The boogie boards, cooler, chairs, and umbrella were great to have for the beach. There was also snorkeling equipment available. The house was spotless and ready for us when we arrived. One thing to note, the master bedroom is separate from the main house and has it's own entrance. This may be an issue for people with small children. Hawaii Life was great to work with and the agent was very responsive to my questions. I would highly recommend this property and we hope to be able to return soon.

Reviewer Comments:

We were a little bit disappointed with the location and the description of beach access. The water was accessible however there was no sand beach within walking distance of the house - the water was accessible by climbing rocks which was not ideal for our group. There were appliances and lights that did not work and windows that we could not lock. We made the most of our stay by taking in the beautiful sunsets off the great viewing deck but I believe the property was very overpriced for what it was. I would recommend to stay at the property if the nightly rate was lower.

We were looking for a place to call home on Kona -- and we found it at Kai Vista! The house was large and comfortable, the location was ideal, and the management company was incredibly responsive. The concierge service helped us setup some tours -- the Mauna Kea Star Gazing isn't to be missed. Thankfully the house had air conditioning for us to use as some days were really hot. We enjoyed the lookout that is pictured online. We only wish they had a pool -- but we made it work. We hope to return.

Reviewer Comments:

For my parents' 60th birthdays, I set up a trip to Hawaii for them, myself, and my grandmother (87). I found Kai Vista on VRBO and fell in love with the view, the semi-seclusion, and the offering of individual bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone. The house is located an easy ~20 minute drive from Kona International Airport. It is a few miles from "downtown"...close enough for convenience and far enough to get away from it all. The home is located on a private drive just off of one of the main roads, which adds to the feeling of "secluded convenience" Upon arrival, we had a small problem with a missing house key, but Heidi and the caretaker quickly helped us resolve the problem. They were courteous, professional, and very quick. The property itself was immaculately clean and extremely well-stocked with towels, kitchen basics, and nicely appointed furnishings. We had some trepidation about the lack of central air. Not only were we comfortable at night, we actually got cold from the trade winds as I listened to the waves crash on the nearby beach and let the surf lull me back to sleep. We were all as comfortable as if we had been home. We spent generous time on the tower, watching canoe races, paragliders, and we saw dolphins and some whale spray. The tower has a gentle breeze and a table and chairs. We also used the whirlpool, which was super comfortable, and we grilled Cheeseburgers in Paradise! The kitchen was a hit with the cooks, with everything we needed to prepare several meals in a convenient way. We were grateful for the thoughtful way that the kitchen was put together.
