Yet close to Kona in a beautiful and quiet area with the old Hawaiian feeling. Just minutes away from beaches, snorkeling, restaurants, supermarket, cafes, banks, hospital and more. It is situated in a very nice and quite neighborhood.
The airport is 6 miles north of Kailua-Kona. Our house is perfectly located 14 miles south of Kailua-Kona. As a reference, Kona Paradise which may save you a few dollars is another 12 miles or 25 minute drive south of our house further away from Kailua-Kona.

Our brand new, beautiful 4600 sq. ft. (427 sq. m.) LUXURY house has two identical separate floors (2300 sq. ft. on each floor). It’s super comfortable with everything you can possibly need including a hot tub on the top floor lanai and breath taking 180-degree view of the mountains and the ocean on both floors.
Half of the 2300 sq. ft. area on each floor consists of a covered lanai, great for enjoying your morning espresso while watching the sun climbing over the mountain top, or watch the sun set over the ocean while enjoying our 8 people dining table on the lanai when the chef is cooking on the outdoor grill. At night you will be amazed by our spacious 6-person hot tub on the top floor lanai while gazing the stars. With a fantastic 180-degree view of the mountain and the ocean, from Kealakekua Bay to Honaunau Bay, you can sit for hours just relaxing in our luxury patio chaise loungers.
The top floor has a beautiful kitchen and living room all in one while the ground floor has the same layout, but the ground floor kitchen is without an oven and a regular cook top. Instead it has a dual hot plate. Both floors have micro wave ovens, large Weber outdoor grills on the lanais and beautiful quartz stone counter tops.
You can cook in the kitchen and watch the 65-inch 4K TV in the living room at the same time, or have a drink and a snack at the kitchen island that seats 4, while you are watching the chef preparing your food. Enjoy your dinner on one of the two lanais at our big dinner tables which seats up to 8. Both floors look the same and are set up the same, but the top floor has 15 ft. ceilings.
Each floor has 2 bedrooms with attached bathrooms and walk in closets. Each floor sleeps 4 people (1 King and 2 Twin beds which can be put together) and there is a possibility to put in two extra folding beds with memory foam mattresses (perfect for children). The living rooms on each floor have 65 inch TVs and luxury sofas.
When you wake up in your bed in the mornings, open your eyes, look out through the big sliders and be swept away by the amazing ocean view. At 1100 ft. the temperature is just perfect, 80 degrees during the day and 70 degrees at night. You sleep great at this elevation without an air conditioning.
Our house is perfectly located in a beautiful neighborhood with an easy driveway and plenty of parking. Just minutes away from shopping and the best breakfast place on the island, The Coffee Shack.
Your first day, you are most likely heading down to Kealakekua Bay, to snorkel, watch wild spinner dolphins in the morning or kayaking. Either way it’s a convenient 12-minute drive. Your second day, you may want to go south for 20 minutes and visit the sandy and most private beach of Hookena, one of the gems when it comes to beaches in the area, with great swimming and sometimes plenty of wild dolphins. The third day another gem is Honaunau National Historical Park (10 minutes drive). One of the evenings, you can drive 10 minutes north for fine dining at Keei Café, or just have great food at Annie's Burger, or continue another 10 minutes north for all the choices Kailua-Kona has to offer.
Our house is a great base for exploring the Island. We love to go around the Island for a long day, or if you haven’t done it before, stay a night in Hilo to have some more time exploring the area. Driving around the Island in one day, starting at 6 AM, will allow time for a visit to the Volcano, lunch in Hilo, driving the amazing 4-Mile Scenic Drive through the rain forest, experiencing Akaka Falls just before sunset and then coming back through Waimea and Kona around 8 PM. Adding another day will make time for a visit to Hilo Zoo, it’s a blast for the children, and watch the lava flow at night.
We always love to come back to the peace and calmness of our neighborhood and the house after a long day on the road. Going north of Kona to the resorts is an easy 45-minute drive, and will be fun for a day. Hilton Waikoloa is well worth a visit just to get the feeling of how nice it is to be back at the house! There are several great beaches up north as well. The largest sandy beach on the island is Hapuna Beach Park (50 minute drive up north).
