(Please Note Update May 11th 2018: This wonderful home is located on the west side of the island and about is 97 miles and 2.5 hours driving away from any volcanic activity. Air quality is not affected because of the immediate proximity to the sea air and breezes and there is no lava or volcanic ash on this side of the island.)
Your Kona Beach House sits on the point of a bay with lush tropical landscaping, flowers and palm-trees surrounding an oceanfront swimming pool and jacuzzi/spa. Our three bedroom, three bath, luxury oceanfront two-story home is in a gated 12-home oceanfront resort of only 12 free standing residences. One of the closest homes to the ocean the serenity is not marred by street-noise or house-parties. Situated at Kona Onenalo: the complex is four miles south of Kailua-Kona town and one mile north of Keauhou (a golfers' haven). The main level has new travertine floors throughout, one bedroom with two twin beds that can be made up as king, one bath with a shower, a bar area with a wine cooler, a well-appointed gourmet kitchen with another wine cooler, rich Koa wood cabinets, and with a huge picture window looking directly out to the unobstructed turquoise blue Pacific Ocean where spinning dolphins and whales swim and gorgeous sunsets sink into the ocean. The dining area also has a large picture window with unobstructed ocean views, and the spacious living room opens to the oceanfront pool and the main lanai where we spend most of our time relaxing. The top level has two spacious bedroom suites. The large master bedroom has a comfortable king bed, looks out to the ocean and has its own separate lanai with a lotus pond with an incredible view and perfect for an early morning stretch or yoga. The second bedroom has two extra-long twin-beds (that can be made into a second king-bed, if desired). Each bedroom has its own private bathroom. The master bathroom has a huge shower with twin shower heads.
Your two-story Kona Beach House is about 15-yards (meters) from the surf; and the crashing waves on the lava and beach are best experienced from our two large lanais. You can watch the surfers, the sunsets, or just sit and look at the gorgeous Pacific Ocean. With a nearly constant temperature in the 80s, and a cool ocean breeze, your oceanfront Kona Beach House is a tropical dream.
This tropical home can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people and there are two portable baby cribs. It is ideal for multi-generation family vacations. The entire complex is no smoking. There is high speed Internet and a smart TV with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime etc.
As this is a tropical home with open-air louvered windows and strategically placed ceiling fans, there is no need for air conditioning - the nearly constant ocean trade winds fan a breeze from the ocean during the day and from the mountains at night. There is however an air conditioner in the upstairs guest bedroom for your added comfort.
The architect designed Kona Onenalo with a focus on maximum privacy. With this in mind there are minimal window coverings to take full advantage of both air flow and views.
Your gated Kona Beach House is RIGHT ON THE OCEAN! Just steps away is a “private” ocean swimming and snorkeling cove with live coral, undersea caves, and magnificent fish & turtles. There is a locked gate that takes you to this cove.
(Note: we recommend only experienced ocean swimmers enter this cove as sometimes the surf and surge can be harmful to beginners.)
Additionally, there are two great beaches on Ali'i Drive. The first, Magic Sands Beach, is a five minute stroll from the house, and is good for swimming and boogie boarding or board & body surfing. The second, Kahalu'u Beach, a ten minute walk, usually calm & safe, is great for snorkeling (and shore-entry scuba), and has green sea turtles that can be found feeding and sunning themselves.

About Dorene Petersen
YourKonaBeachHouse is our second home! We offer it as a vacation rental when we're not using it and you will love the location, tropical-surroundings, house, and decor as your second home -- in Hawaii. When not in Kona, we live in Portland, OR.
Why Dorene Petersen chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
Our house is one of 12 free-standing, 2000 sq-ft houses on a point of land protruding into the Pacific Ocean. It is truly unique -- it could not be built today because the house is too close to the ocean by present codes. The 12-houses are in a gated community with good parking, and our house is far from Ali'i Drive so that there is no street-noise. Since all of the owners are also using the houses as second homes, and only a few provide them as vacation rentals as we do, the community typically has only 2-4 of the homes occupied at any one time -- so tranquility is assured.
What makes this House unique
While enjoying the beauty of the surroundings, my guests and I have difficult choices to make each day: Putting on snorkel-gear and walking through our private gate into the water of our '4-mile cove', full of coral, fish, and turtles -- so appealing that the dive and snorkel boats often bring their customers. Or, strolling 100-yards to the popular White Sands (or Magic Sands) beach for swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, or just sunning. Often we do both of these, and finish the day in our pool and jacuzzi -- and enjoy drinks and a barbeque dinner on our lanai at sunset.

A fabulous place for our family vacation
This condo was perfect for our family of 5. It's in a great location - beautiful quiet grounds, walking distance to Magic Sands beach, and easy access to points north and south. The condo is comfortable and beautifully appointed - the kitchen is fully equipped and the lanai overlooking the pool and the waves is a lovely spot day and night.
Mahalo for taking the time to share your wonderful experience at my condo. I am very happy that your family had such a great vacation. Super to hear that you enjoyed Magic Sands beach - I can't get enough of the sunsets!
I welcome you back in the future :)
Fabulous location, well equipped, clean
We were three generations enjoying a family vacation. Dorene and Heather were easy to work with and accommodating with requests. The house was fabulous with the best lanai for reading, eating, and socializing. It was well equipped with everything we needed. The pool and grounds were immaculate and beautiful. There were a grocery and shopping center and two beaches nearby. We will be back.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and stay at my condo. I am so glad that you had a wonderful visit and enjoyed the accommodations. We welcome you back in the future. Mahalo!
Outstanding! Great place for a relaxing Kailua-Kona Vacation!
I can't recommend this place enough for those looking for a relaxing stay in Kailua-Kona! This is a very nice, well maintained condo, in a beautiful, small complex, with lush surroundings. It's practically right on the ocean, with great views from many windows, as well as the giant sliders in the master bedroom and great room. We left the great room sliders wide open most of the time, making the lanai our favorite living space during the day. While conveniently located on Ali'i drive, we never heard traffic noise.
A very nice pool is 20 steps off the lanai, and the gate to the ocean (lava coast) is less than a minute walk. Magic Sands beach, which is a 5 minute walk, was best for body/boogie board surfacing during our February visit. My understanding is that it is a better swimming beach in the summer. There's good snorkeling nearby. Kailua Village, with all its historic interest, nice (casual) restaurants, and shops, is about a 10 minute drive north. Less than 10 minutes south is a large shopping center that has a grocery store and several good restaurants. Check out Hawaii Revealed for details on the many nearby sites and activities. Unless you absolutely need to be walking distance to the Village, this location is about perfect.
I am so happy you enjoyed your stay at Your Kona Beach House - it is a magical spot! Thanks for the kind review full of tips for other future guests. I will also be cehcking out the site you recommended - there is so much to learn and do there I am still discovering!
Welcome back any time.
Beautiful setting and great location.
We had a wonderful stay at Dorene’s condo. Beautiful views from every room and the sound of the waves crashing over the lava rocks was fantastic! We slept so well! Dorene also had little things to make our trip helpful. Lots of extras in the kitchen, beach chairs, and snorkeling equipment. We had a great time and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this lovely condo.
Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am so happy to hear that you had a relaxing and refreshing stay in my condo. I appreciate your kind feedback. You are welcome back to Kona Onenalo anytime. :) Mahalo.
Perfect in every way
We have used Home away and VRBO for most of our recent vacations and this experience was a highlight. You are literally right on the ocean. Tons of privacy but communal pool brings other neighbors and renters together. The house was lovely —.perfect in its layout and comfort. Bright and open, you really do feel spoiled in this setting. The owner and her local staff were extremely gracious, attentive and efficient. Located in the perfect part of Kona just minutes from the shops — convenient but secluded. It was heaven. Highly recommend. Worth every penny and then some!

Dorene (the owner) was very prompt with all communications and we had nothing to worry about the entire time... a short walk to magic sands beach, great snorkeling, or just stay at the house and enjoy the amazing view from the deck and the pool... even the view from the kitchen is amazing!!
