Overview

About the property

Beautiful 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom Oceantfront Property

Welcome to Koni Kai, Hawaiian translation: Passionate Sea. Koni Kai is a beautifully designed, very comfortable oceanfront home. Considerable time and effort has been spent to ensure Koni Kai is equipped with everything one might want/need while on vacation.

Koni Kai is perched on an ancient lava flow on the South Kona coast in Milolii, the oldest fishing village in Hawaii. If you are looking for nightlife (other than some of the best constellation viewing on the planet), then this is probably not the place for you. If, however, you are seeking a luxurious personal refuge that promotes relaxation and rejuvenation, then you have found your perfect vacation destination at Koni Kai. Located 30 miles south of Kailua-Kona and just an hour’s drive from Volcano National Park, Koni Kai provides the perfect home base to lounge all day on the 1000 square foot sundeck, explore nearby black and green sand beaches, experience the dramatically different eco-systems in the rainforests near Hilo, or hike the volcano to search for petroglyphs and watch active red lava flow into the ocean. Regardless of how you choose to spend your days, you will be welcomed back to Koni Kai with some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, the perfect backdrop for the dramatically rugged landscape.

In the winter months (approximately November thru March), you will be able to sit on the sundeck and watch Humpback whales migrate, spinner dolphins perform and the occasional green sea turtle swim up to say hello. Some of the best snorkeling, diving and fishing can be found directly in front of the house due to a coral reef that spans the north side of the bay.

While we would hope the majority of your vacation is spent “un-plugged” from the chaos of the rest of the world, we understand there will be occasions when you need to check-in, so complimentary Wi-Fi internet and high-definition satellite television are provided. A brand-new, state of the art water filtration system, to include UV light, has been installed. The kitchen includes a Wolf gas range, Kenmore oven and microwave, Bosch dishwasher and every small appliance we could think of. There is also a laundry area with a brand new Whirlpool Duet hi-efficiency washer and dryer.

Koni Kai welcomes you with much Aloha, now and for all your future Hawaii visits. Please contact us with any questions you may have – we look forward to making your stay as pleasant and memorable as possible.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 10 nights at this property and I t was exactly as advertised! Very secluded & quiet. We were treated to a few fantastic whale shows & the starry nights were wonderful! The house is very well equipped with everything you would want (well stocked kitchen & even a gas BBQ!). Sarah and Preston were quick to answer the few questions we had. We highly recommend this VRBO!

An amazing home in a phenomenal location.

Perfect place to unwind!

  • 5 of 5

We will stay at Koni Kai anytime we come to the big island!! The view is unbeatable. The house is perfect beds are clean and comfy. All you hear at night is the ocean waves. Best sleep we have ever gotten on vacation. This house is perfect to unwind and relax without a care in the world. The locals we did meet were friendly and gave good tips. The snorkeling right by the house was amazing. Anyone looking for the perfect house on the big island needs to look no further. We will tell everyone to stay at Koni Kai!!!!
