Ocean View 5,000 sq ft plantation estate. You know you have arrived... as you navigate the long private drive and park beneath the high, open Porte Cochere. Enter through the magnificent crystal cut glass front doors. You are greeted by an expansive view of the blue Pacific Ocean, framed by an open 40 foot sliding glass wall of the great room with it's own indoor atrium reaching 25 feet to the sky light.
Stepping out onto the huge tiled Lanai, the only sounds you hear are tropical bird songs and rustling palms.
To your right is the gourmet kitchen where your meals can be prepared for you*, or you can be your own chef. Formal dining room, or lunch on the Lanai, or just party around the pool and practice snorkeling for your ocean dive. (*Gourmet Chef optional *scuba lessons available).
Every night watch the golden sunset, and later in the evening curl up in the library room with a south seas novel, or enjoy your favorite Video or DVD on the library room television.
Like to listen to your own music? Just put a CD into the 'Great Room' stereo.
Stargazing is a nightly event against a black sky among a beautiful backdrop created by nature.
Everything you would expect from a luxury plantation home is provided.
The plantation grounds were designed in a way to allow each living area privacy yet access to the garden and pool areas. In all cases we can customize all accommodations for every guest and cater your needs.

Exceeded expectations! Everything we needed was there
Snorkel gear, boogie boards, golf clubs, beach chairs, everything we thought of was there. Great experience!
There were "attention to details" things that could have been better in the house. The reviews about the roster were spot on but left out the pack of howling dogs. Property was great and set up nicely for the larger group. The question I got most from my pictures of the property was "why is there caution tape?" It was a wonderful experience and my group was happy with the accommodations.
Awesome Place in Kona
We had a family reunion with my 7 kids and their spouses and 8 grandchildren. The place was perfect for a large family and the kids loved the pool. The accommodations were great and the management was very responsive to our requests and needs.
I highly recommend this place for a family get together on the big island.
I wish we could have stayed longer!
Great Villa for groups!
It was the 4. time i came back to this house with a Group from Switzerland, we love it!
It has a graet oceanview, super Pool, nice big garden, big kitchen, barbeque, great livingroom, and a really big lanay! We will come back again, thank you Joey and Dana, you are always helpful when we need something.
The bedrooms are very different, some are not very private, because there are only sliding doors, you hear every moov from the other rooms!
What a wonderful time we had at this property. We traveled with 13 family members to this beautiful home. We all took a 2 week vacation and for the first 6 days we stayed at this home. The second part of the trip we all had our own condo on a different island. We all figured it would be a great idea if well all spent the first week together and the second part in "our own space." I can honestly say we were all sad that we were not "together." There is so much room for everyone. First, Dana was great at getting back to many questions we all had. We all appreciated her promptness at getting back to us. The home had plenty of room for all of us without a doubt! The only problems we had which were minor were there is no air conditioning and to me it was fine. I was more afraid of the men complaining, but there are fans in all rooms. Second the bugs...nothing you can do about that its Hawaii but we all got bit, so don't forget the bug repellent. Lastly, the roosters are a bit annoying, but again it is Hawaii and we are use to it having traveled there MANY MANY times. When I travel I usually bring my spices and little odds and ends we may need since we either stay in a condo or our timeshare, but this house had it all, thanks to the other guests leaving their supplies behind. The kids had a great time in the pool while the adults gathered around the many places from the large patio in the back, the kitchen or the living room. The views are beautiful as you can see the ocean. I have fond memories of this vacation and Dana thank you, your home is definitely a Spectacular Kona Oceanview Plantation!!!
Beautiful home in Kona
Our family of 18 people (11 adults and 7 kids) stayed at this home from February 15 - 22. The grounds are beautiful with a wonderful view. There are 6 separate bedrooms with their own bathroom. That worked perfectly for the 6 individual families staying at this location.
- Beautiful grounds. Large, nicely landscaped yard.
- Plenty of outside lawn chairs.
- Two dining room tables that each seat 12+ people. One is outside and one is inside.
- Nice pool. A little cool, but the kids didn't seem to mind.
- Each bedroom is large and has its own bathroom.
- A long private road leading to the house gives you nice privacy.
- Owners were very responsive and lived just around the corner.
- The portable basketball hoop was a very nice addition for our grandkids.
- There were a lot of videos for the kids to enjoy.
- Gets a bit warm at night. They provide a number of fans which helps.
- Lots of roosters in the area, which make a lot of noise from about 3:00 AM on.
- Kitchen is a bit small for as many people as we had.
- Would have been nice to have more towels. We had to do wash a few times a day.
We would highly recommend this beautiful house for a large group.
