Ili Ili Beach House is a truly unique location right on Pebble Beach. The smooth pebbles (known as ili ili in Hawaiian) create a soothing sound as the waves roll in and out. From the lanai or the garden you can watch the sunset and possibly see whales breech or dolphins play. Walk 50' and go swimming or snorkeling. Take off on a hike to an ancient cindercone or black sand beaches. Kayak to lava caves. Scuba divers love to beach dive off this beach.
Pebble Beach is not easy to find in the guide books. It is off the beaten track and therefore almost private. You will be located right in the middle of your own beach!
You will need lots of will-power to leave this house in its magical setting, but if so inclined this is a great location for exploring the Big Island. Visit the Place of Refuge, snorkel in Kealakekua Bay, surf Kahalu'u beach, do a night dive or snorkel with manta rays, drive 70 miles to the Volcanoes National Park or shop in Kailua only 25 miles away. So wake up, go for a swim and then hit the road.
High Speed Wireless access and Bluetooth sound system!! Bring your work and all your tunes and stay an extra week.

The place seduced us! We were staying with friends in the neighborhood and noticed that this house was on the market. We were not in the market for a rental, but we could not resist owning a house right on the beach.
We find this place very relaxing. It truly is hard to leave and we find ourselves only slowly getting out to explore the rest of the island.
Every time we come back it feels so good to slip into the comfort and magic of this place.
We arrived to the house late at night when it was dark and we couldn't see a lot of a surroundings. I knew that the house is close to the beach and we could hear waves. But when I woke up next morning and stepped out to the living room, I was absolutely stunned. The house has a huge windows overlooking lanai and backyard, almost glass wall. I just stood there and couldn't believe my eyes. You practically have ocean in your backyard!
The beach is almost private. There were more people there during weekend (and by more I mean 4-5 families), but during the week there were days when we were only people on the beach.
Other reviewers mentioned that the house is bigger then it appears on the photos and it's absolutely true. The living room is spacious, has a big dining table and enough sitting options for the whole family if you want to relax inside. The lanai is big and has couple of dining tables and outdoor chairs to enjoy outdoor meals and glass of wine at sunsets (which, BTW, are absolutely amazing there).
Kitchen is equipped with everything you might need. There is outdoor grill. There is snorkeling equipment and kayaks in the house. I highly recommend kayaking. The view from the sea is stunning too.
The house is very clean and well kept. Owners, Chris and Tess, are always available , very accommodating and try really hard to solve any probleNadya M.m that might arise.
We had a great time at the house and I'd love to come back and stay there again.
Clean, well-appointed home right on a secluded beach. What more can you ask for?
Pros--location, property condition, excellent communication with owner, gorgeous pebble beach, hiking trail, nice BBQ, lots of beach/sporting equipment, good snorkeling, fantastic view of sunsets!
Cons--mosquitos were bad when we were there (use the bug spray the owner has provided!)
other information--the drive through the subdivision is a very strep hill that takes some getting used to. We had no problems with it, but it was a little intimidating at first.
This was perfect for my family, the extras the home comes with are amazing, kayaking was fantastic and the snorkeling was some of the best on the island, we will rent this home again.
This property exceeded everything we wanted. The location, the house, and everything that the owners could possibly control or provide was well thought out.
We have stayed in many places and have always left a thought or two on ideas for improvements. Not this time!
Loved our 5 days at Ili Ili. Although it turned out to be a completely different experience than we had expected. Being right on the beach we were ready for snorkeling, boogie boarding, kayaking and fly fishing, instead we were treated to some of the highest surf in years. What a show was put on by the ocean during our stay.
The house was very comfortable, had a great sand backyard (which was a nice break from the surrounding lava) and all the toys you would ever want when the ocean cooperates. Love the location, close to Captain Cook, just far enough away from Kona and that much close to the Volcanoes.
Waiting for warm water to arrive to wash dishes was a bit of a drag particularly with the drought conditions but other than that we will be back someday.
The rental could not have been better! Of course the views and beach access were heavenly. We especially appreciated the fully stocked kitchen (made smoothies every morning), the loaner beach equipment available, and the pack-and-play the owners so kindly loaned us. We cannot wait to return!
