About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6, Oceanfront and Gorgeous!

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.

More information, maps, and pictures and video are shown below.


Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property.

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 Kailua-Kona

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.

Beautiful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here in August and we had a wonderful time! The home was very comfortable for three couples and was well supplied with anything we needed. We loved sitting on the deck in the morning drinking our coffee and ending the day on the deck watching the sunset. The view is just amazing and the gardens surrounding all the homes in this development are well kept and lovely. We enjoyed the pool almost every day. We ate some meals in, and enjoyed eating out at some of the local restaurants, which were within a 15 minute drive from the place. Magic Sands beach is just a five minute walk and a really nice beach for snorkeling. We went to Volcanoes National Park one day, went to the Place of Refuge another, and went Flumin' in Hawi another day. All great adventures. We loved Kona Brewing, Da Poke Shack, Super J's for lunch, Kayas, Evolution and 808 Grindz for breakfast. We found a convenient grocery store just five minutes south called KTA.

We have so many wonderful memories of being with our family in this beautiful home and we feel fortunate to have found this Hawaii treasure!

Perfect three generation vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time staying in this beautiful home. Amazing view of ocean, the pool right in front. And plenty of close beaches and restaurants. Our grandsons, ages 7 and 10 had the best time swimming in the pool, learning to snorkel and boogie boarding. Everything we needed was right there in the home. For anyone wanting a family vacation, I highly recommend this place. Hopefully, we can come back again and make more memories!!

Perfect Location. Family Friendly.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo worked out so well for our family. Grandparents, parents, a 7 y/o and a 3 y/o ... everyone was happy and comfortable. The location is excellent, the condo is immaculate, the view is stunning, and the pool is lovely. Doreen, the owner, and her team are very responsive, and easy to work with. I'd book this condo, again, in a heartbeat.

A fabulous place for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fabulous location, well equipped, clean

  • 5 of 5

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.
