Kona Sunset is located on the gentle slopes of Kona at the perfect elevation. Minutes to town, but away from the crowds, traffic, and the HEAT of downtown at sea level! The Home is in an Upscale neighborhood and on a quiet street, with beautiful gardens, and a covered carport entry (Keeps your car shaded and cool). Beautiful yard of just over an acre of gardens and mature tropical foliage.
The home has an open living area layout with vaulted ceilings in the Great Room, Kitchen, and Dining Room, as well as in the Master and 1 of the other bedrooms. Most all rooms open out to Lanai and Pool area.
The large west facing covered lanai has an additional 650 sq feet of living space. It is like having 4 more rooms, and features the large Hot Tub, a seating area, another dining area, and even a small vintage Tiki bar and reading area as well. The lanai faces the large and very private pool/sun deck with a 35 X 18ft pool, plenty of sun furniture and BBQ area. The pool deck is perfect for tanning and relaxing. We provide pool floats, inflatables, and of course - pool toys for the youngsters.
The Home, Lanai, and Pool are all on the same level. This is NOT a "bare bones" rental, it is well equipped, well decorated and well furnished. It has MANY extras. It will feel like your own place! Kitchen is large and VERY well equipped and has an additional bar/counter that seats 4, inside and outside dining areas each seat 6. Many extras provided with this home, beach equipment, assorted quality snorkel gear, and boogie boards too! Also a nice assortment of family or childrens games and DVD's.
The Master Suite has double sink, shower tub, private lanai, flat screen TV, and walk out to main lanai & hot tub. The 2nd full bath has a shower tub as well. This home comfortably sleeps up to 8 adults, with 3 King, 1 Full, and 1 twin. 2 -3 additional floor futons available (for younger children) upon request.
This is a nice residential neighborhood with 1 acre lots of well kept homes. Many guests do morning walks, since the streets are mostly level and there is little traffic.
Most consider our elevation to be perfect. At about 800ft, it is pleasantly a few degrees cooler than down in town at sea level. It is usually sunny with nice tradewinds, and has a nice ocean view. Most of all, the SUNSET views are spectacular.
Please note the map which this site provides is only an "area map". Our home is located in a nicer residential area, unlike most Kona neighborhoods, which can have homes stacked back to back. Please see our site for a very accurate map of our location. Mahalo!

Best Rental house EVER!
December 8, 2011
We have stayed in many rental homes over the years and this is by FAR the best house we have stayed in! The owners are right on the property and make every effort to make you feel right at home! The pool and the hot tub were amazing and used every day! The house is very close to the airport and at a high enough elevation to stay cool all day. I would highly recommend this house if you are planning a trip to Kona! We will definitely be coming back here!
Heaven On Earth
April 18, 2011
Our Spring Vacation was truly "Heaven On Earth". It was a perfect and relaxing experience in every way for our very busy family of five. The minute we stepped foot in our "home away from home", we felt like we were visiting family. Every detail of our vacation needs was anticipated and met. The home is beautifully decorated, stocked, comfortable, and absolutely lovely. From the pool and hot tub, the spacious lanai, quiet neighborhood, beautifully landscaped yard to the great location and post card perfect sunsets, Kona Heaven Sunset is a Hawaiian treasure. Every room is spacious and so comfortable. Close to Kona, beaches, shopping, the airport, it truly has it all! Glenn and Ray were totally accommodating and available, but gave us complete privacy. There is nothing we would have changed about our trip except the length of time we spent at Kona Sunset Heaven. Another couple of weeks would have been great! The family memories we created on our vacation are priceless! We will return to this lovely home and this beautiful paradise! Mahalo, for everything, Glenn and Ray! The Watson Family

A peaceful place with great surprises.
August 2, 2010
Kona Sunset Heaven was MORE THAN and BETTER than we had expected. For anyone that wants to go away, and yet still enjoy the "comforts" of home, this is the PLACE! The owners of this wonderful vacation home, are excellent "hosts"! Even prior to going there, they were so helpful in sending emails and providing us with information about the area. After the first ten minutes, we felt as though we were visiting friends. The refrigerator was filled with beverages, condiments, etc. On the counter was a basket filled with fruit, goodies, and coffee. The home was much bigger than we expected, and immaculate. The Lanai was our favorite place! Everything one could need in the way of beach, pool, games, & kitchen things are provided. The pots, pans, utensils, etc. are better than the normal person has in their kitchen. There were so many unexpected additions, like a rice cooker, a stocked pantry, extra bedding, and even a massage cushion! I cannot say enough about the entire experience. The 5 people in my group are referring anyone that we know to this lovely vacation heaven. It is easy to refer my friends, and others to Kona Sunset Heaven. You have added so many special touches to the home, the property is peaceful & beautiful, and the owners are terrific! We have traveled a great deal, and without a doubt,we have never experienced the complete feeling of being at home as we did when we were in this lovely home. We are already booked for next year. See you again soon!
Perfect Place in Kona
July 25, 2010
We (7 adults 1 18mos) rented the "penthouse". Plenty of room. Well supplied with household necessities. And most importantly many thanks to Tommy for being available to provide logistic support and act as information central for everything from what beach or which road to where to get fresh fish. Location was a perfect place to start regardless of which direction the sightseeing was headed. White sands beach didn't vanish during our stay which was a blessing because of all the beaches we visited, it was the favorite for my kids due to only summertime "break" for boogie boarding. Also great snorkeling both there and just up the road. Overall great experience. Mahalo nui loa
I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at [the Sunset Home]. Everything was awesome. The beds were very comfortable and all of them had extra pillows. Two of our teenage boys were too big to share a bed so in the closet was a fold-a-bed for him to use with additional pillows and blankets.
The pool and hot tub were great. We were asked to cover the pool up every night to keep the heat in and it worked great. The cover is on a pull string and two of us were able to do that every night in less than 30 seconds. There was also an abundance of beach towels for us to use. We would not have had to bring any.
The kitchen was well stocked. The best part about your house were all the little things that we didn't realize came with it. Boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach mats, beach towels, coolers. Everything was wonderful! We had six teenagers with us who approved of everything so you can be assured it really was great!! Thanks Again!! Sally Hoffmaster - Secretary, Baker Elementary -- Hopkins MI, Apr 08
The little touches you provided create a full package for this beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped home. When we first pulled under the carport, our first thoughts were "WOW!". Our only problem was that it makes it hard to leave! -- Bill, Cathy, and Melissa M., Calgary Canada Apr. 08
Your home was something very special for us! Its an incredible place in a wonderful location to explore the island from, and a place from everyday life to escape to. We won't say goodbye, but "Auf Wiedersehen", which, like "Aloha", means we hope we will meet again soon! -- Martin and Gabi K., Saxony, Germany Aug. 08
What a lovely place to stay ! My family was able to relax and enjoy !- even the little ones ! -- Charles and Mollie G., Victoria, BC, Canada
[The Sunset Home] was relaxing, comfortable, and we simply dont want to go home! A Hotel could never ever come up to this. Your gardens are simply breathtaking, and the pictures we took will help us remember - your warm tropical paradise - when the snow is blowing this winter ! -- Charles and Leslie C., Cerre Gordo, IL
With our late night arrival, we could hardly wait for morning to get the full effect. It was breathtaking ! Mahalo many times over ! -- Norma, Tracy, and Jean N. , Sas Diego
We were very impressed with Sunset Pool Home. As you know from our previous emails, we brought four guests from Germany with us. This was their first visit to Hawaii and we wanted everything to be perfect. And, it was! Sunset Pool Home is roomy, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is more than adequately stocked with dishwear, cookwear, cleaning supplies etc. The four bedrooms and two bathrooms are equally well supplied with towels and linens. We used the wonderful pool and hot tub every day. There are plenty of beach towels, chairs, ice chests, swim gear and beach toys in the closet for guests to use. In short, we couldn't of asked for anything more.
-- Mahalo, Barbara & Darrell H., Roseville CA,
We came in late Sunday night after a long flight. From the very moment we saw the place, we knew it was going to be wonderful! Only we didn't know how much you two were going to add to that! Every effort you made for my family was greatly appreciated & that is such an understatement. The Palmisano Family, Victoria and CA.
The house and grounds are wonderful- our own little paradise!! You went above and beyond the call of duty with all the Christmas decorations for the little ones, (the big ones loved it too!) Your expertise about where to go and what to see made us feel so special. We had a great time! Bowman Family, Kobe, Japan & The Brusdas, Indiana
You have captured the epoch of hospitality, joy, and heartfelt spirit of Aloha. We leave relaxed and nurtured, and are planning our return next year. I hope all that visit this Ohana appreciate the true meaning of the word. The home and the ability to stay here is a rare treasure! Quinn and Donais group, Portland, OR.
We had a wonderful time as usual in Kona! Everything was PERFECT, due in large part to your wonderful home- definitely the best place we've ever stayed in! Thanks so much for your incredible warmth and hospitality. Repeta Family
We had a fantastic week here in Kona and especially at this house! You are GREAT hosts : ) All the extras were great and rare in a rental. Thanks, Mahalo, and Aloha! Sauermilch and Ellsworth group, March, '09
From the moment we stepped into the house, we immediately felt a great sense of relaxation and comfort. The kitchen was well stocked. The bathrooms were clean. The beds were comfortable. The pool and hot tub were inviting. But our favorite feature of the house got to be the lanai, where we had our "little luau" every evening, while watching the spectacular sunset. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We really appreciate your hospitality, attentiveness, and kindness. You have thought of everything (and more) to make our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. We felt pampered. The Nguyen family and Huynh family, Oakland, CA.
We stayed here last January and had a great time. We're planning another vacation to Kona, and are definitly staying there again too! The lanai was the best, it is shaded and faces the pool and the views, and it is real large. We spent alot of time there, and never even ate at the inside dining table once! (Though, it was beautiful!)We always wanted to be outside on the lanai or by the pool. There were 5 of us, and the bedrooms and beds were all great too. The bedrooms looked like a magazine cover when we arrived, beautiful! We liked where it was located too. Everything was just a few minute drive, and we were away from the downtown area so it was a good neighborhood. The house was THE BEST supplied home we have ever stayed at! We sure hope it is available when we come back!
From the moment we started communicating, to our arrival at your beautiful home, this has been an incredible experience for our family. You have added so much to our memories of Kona. Your kind thoughtful touches, and special treats to all of us are greatly appreciated. Our real reflection of "The Aloha Spirit" will be from our interactions with you. We will return! The Willis Family, Washington
The gardens, the pool, the accommodations, and of course, your hospitality, were all top notch. The pool toys, snorkel gear, coolers, boogie boards, we used them all! Oh, and lets not forget the tempurpedic bed! I have had the best sleep these last 6 days, and I am getting one when I get home! The Arndt Family, Kodiak, AK.
From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like we were home. Truly, home away from home, and even better because it was so easy to settle in. Just make a drink, and jump in the pool! We appreciated all your suggestions and guidance of the area. Every detail made this THE vacation to remember! Morrissey Family, CO, IL, AZ.
Wow, What else can we say? This place is fabulous. We had everything we needed for our first visit to The Big Island. It was nice to not have to worry about all the little purchases, spices, coffee filters, snacks, even fresh fruit. Thanks for your careful consideration of all the details! Muenk Family, OH,
As I sit by the pool in the cool blue morning, with the sounds of the doves, it is the perfect time to reflect on our beautiful family week in Kona. This is truly a "Sunset Heaven" home, and we so appreciate the multitude of thoughtful amenities. The home is warm and inviting, comfortable, spacious, well maintained and appointed. We could hardly make ourselves leave to go sightseeing! Dooley Family, AK.
We feel very blessed to have met you, a new addition to our families. You two are the best. We had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. It has been our best Hawaii vacation so far. We can't wait for next year and were brainstorming all the way home Next year, we are going with one suitcase between us and very minimal. I should have listened to you, but who knew you would be soooo stocked and prepared. We have never stayed anywhere where people were so accommodating, fun, friendly, and informative. Your home truly was HEAVEN for us.. Mary Ann & Ralph D., DE, May '11
House is really comfortable and loads of supplies are on hand. Owners are really helpful and go out of their way to make your stay the best holiday you'll ever have. You will see the true aloha spirit here at KonaSunsetHeaven.
Rosemary & Bruce from Vancouver, BC

5 stars of 5
What a great 2 weeks
Having been to Kona many times, this trip was truly made special by this beautiful home. Everything listed on the site was factual. The house is beautiful, spacious, comfortable and had everything in it that we needed. Glenn and Ray were terrific, there if we needed them. The entire family could not think of a single thing we were missing and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Having a 21 and 17 year old who were so happy says a lot.
Thanks guys for the most wonderful time. Kinnear Family, Colorado. Sept 2011
