About the property

High End Kona Oasis! 4 bedroom / 4 Bath/ Pool/Private/Modern/Ocean View/Beaches!


Why stay 30 to 45 minutes from Kailua-Kona town when you can stay in Central Kailua-Kona and have the convenience of Shopping, Restaurants and all of the outdoor Activities Kailua-Kona has to offer?

Most of the coast line in Kailua-Kona is lava rock which is beautiful to look at but not experience. There are only a few useable beaches in the Kailua Kona area and Kona Lani Hale is a few minutes drive away to these beaches. Other vacation rentals may be near the water but not necessarily near a beach.

The closest usable beach for Hoene is the world famous Kamakahonu "Eye of the Turtle" Beach. It is only 2.4 miles from the house...basically a short 5 to 10 minute drive down the hill. This beach has snorkeling, swimming, and stand up paddle board activities and is located in Central Kailua-Kona. It is also famous because it is the start of Ali'i Drive and the finishing line for the "Iron Man World Championship". It can be seen on T.V. around the world when the Iron Man competition occurs in October of each year.

Kona Lani Hale is a Large Private Executive Style Home built in 2005 located a short 5 minute drive from the heart of the famous Ali’i Drive in Downtown Kona. Guests will have access to restaurants, retail, shopping, urgent care, and other neighborhood amenities such as Safeway, Walmart, Target, Starbucks, Longs Drugs, Bubba Gump's, Outback Steakhouse, the Post Office, Library, Parks, and other Kailua-Kona outdoor activities. Beach access along with activity centers (i.e. Island tours, Scuba Diving, Fishing etc.) are a few minutes drive away (off of Ali’i drive) allowing guests to stay off the “crowded hotel areas” but still provide them with direct access to the pristine Hawaiian beaches and other island amenities. We are perfect for the guests who want privacy AND convenience!

Property Overview

In the Hawaiian culture, the word 'Lani' means 'Royal' and 'Hale' (Haw-Lay) means 'Home', which is exactly what you are getting with the Kona Lani Hale. A luxurious, high quality royal vacation home with over 3500 square feet of private living space, small swimming pool (non-heated), and beautiful ocean, bay, and sunset views. The home is at an elevation of approximately 700 feet above sea level. The home is located in a more temperate zone of the island since it is at a higher elevation. Because of the high cost for electricity on the island of Hawaii, very few homes have air conditioning. Our home is Hawaiian style and uses a large open air floor plan to keep the house cool and comfortable. We do offer a low season rate of $395 per night for guests staying during the warmer months of August and September. Kona Lani Hale is perfect for families, couples, or a group of friends wanting to experience the Hawaiian lifestyle together while having the option for maintaining individual privacy. The home consists of a main 2,500 square foot (which includes the covered lanai) dwelling with two (2) large bedrooms and two (2) luxurious bathrooms. Each bedroom has a King Size Bed and a cot therefore sleeping up to 3 people per room. A large expansive living room looks out past a covered lanai area with views of the ocean. In addition, there are two large studio units attached to the garage which can sleep up to 3 people each. Next to the lanai there is a small swimming pool (non-heated) enclosed by a private fence and gate. The master bedroom in the main home features a brand new King Size Serta Perfect sleeper bed, tub, walk-in shower, and private lanai area. The 2nd bedroom also has a brand new King Size Serta Perfect sleeper bed. The 2nd bathroom has a “spa-like” feel with solid granite counters and a large walk-in shower.

Exterior Grounds

The property is nicely landscaped with native Hawaiian trees and plants providing that “tropical feeling” and sense of place. There are no neighbors behind the property (it is preservation land) and a vacant lot on one side providing the ultimate privacy or peace of mind knowing fun loving family gatherings or friendly get-togethers won’t be dealt with by complaining neighbors. The home is situated above street level so the home cannot be seen from the road giving guests a sense of privacy. The front of the property is filled with matured trees, plants, and shrubbery on top of a solid and extensive Hawaiian rock wall. There is a large open driveway capable of fitting up to 4 cars.


The home was built for an executive-type lifestyle with top of the line improvements and appliances, such as:

• Wolf Gas Range

• Sub Zero Refrigerator

• Walk-in Pantry

• Granite counter tops

• Large tile floors

• Custom solid wood doors

• Sofited ceilings with rope lighting

• Tub in Master Bedroom

• Courtyard with water-pond

• Beautiful 6 inch patina copper fascia gutters

• Brand New Serta Perfect Sleeper King Size Beds (Main House - Master Bedroom and 2nd Bedroom)

• Large living room with pocket doors that stay open for the fabulous tropical Hawaiian breezes (large fans for cooling in all rooms)

• Large covered lanai with several sitting areas perfect for entertaining or for large family gatherings

At Kona Lani Hale you'll get to experience the uniqueness of Hawaii without sacrificing the luxuries of living. And when you leave this beautiful island, you'll know why the people of Hawaii say, 'Lucky we live in Hawaii'.

This home by far, has been the best vacation rental we have ever used in the Kailua-Kona area. The gourmet kitchen, swimming pool, and two adjoining private suites, met all of our needs for a wonderful stay!

Beautiful property. We enjoyed our stay. Would absolutely stay here again

  • 5 of 5

We came with our three adult children, spouses and grandchildren. Plenty of room for everyone. The two studio apartments allowed families privacy and the main house and lanai offered space for the whole group. Thank for allowing us to make your beautiful home ours for the week!

Awesome property, great location, and amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

More than we could have asked for! We plan to rent the house annually if available. We did not want to leave. The owner, Kelly, and property manager, Sandy, were incredibly communicative and hospitable. Definitely recommend to anyone!

Beautiful Home.

  • 4 of 5

The house and view is absolutely gorgeous. The only draw back was that we happened to travel when there was a heat wave. There is no air conditioner on premises.

The pool is small but very refreshing.

Would stay there again.

Would recommend to others.

Beautiful house with lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay. The kids loved having their own studio. The sunset views were amazing. We loved sitting on the lanai after our daily adventures and relaxing. Kelly & Sandy were quick to respond to our questions.

This is the perfect house rental for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect family vacation home. Each couple/family had their own privacy with complete bath in their unit. Our mainland guests loved it/requested the info for their next trip back with their own family. The lily waterfall pond was admired by everyone. We got nightly pictures of perfect sunsets. Ali'i Drive, Walmart, Safeway stores are 10 minutes away. My daughter got married this past weekend and we had time to relax with some excursions and activities with the in-laws in Waikoloa prior to the wedding. On Friday we were in and out back and forth to the reception hall on Alii Drive to decorate and to the hotel to check her in where the wedding was held and if anything was forgotten - it was no problem because home was just 10 minutes away. Everyone was happy that the wedding went well and could relax with a night swim in the pool and everyone enjoyed themselves -this house has a lot to do with it because we would retire to our own quarters at the end of the night and meet for breakfast the next morning. We had a wonderful week here in Kona at this home away from home.
