Description of the Kailua-Kona vacation home rental
Luxury Home with the Best Views on the Kona Coast (Big Island of Hawaii).

You'll love our heated pool! (This is not very common in Hawaii, but it is nice!) Brand new travertine decking around the pool for the ultimate luxury. You won't want to leave!

Picture yourself lounging around the pool with the huge blue ocean always in sight, napping on the hammock, or reading on the tropical lanai sofas. Imagine one gorgeous sunset after another, framed by the palm lined coastline and the lights of Kona. Enjoy them with a glass of wine, Hawaiian music playing, surrounded by your family and friends. This is what you will find yourself doing at Kona View House.

Unlike many under $500/night vacation rentals, ours is decorated with high end furnishings and constantly maintained and upgraded to provide the perfect vacation experience. We purchased and began renting our home a few years ago and from the beginning received excellent reviews and repeat customers. Since then we have spent over $180,000 on additional improvements!

Our home contains Tommy Bahama-style tropical furnishings and tropical art on almost every wall. Lots of teak and bamboo. Gorgeous lanais. Solar-Heated Pool. Hammock. 4 smart TV's including a Big Screen. X-Box with games. DVD Library..

3 bedroom + den with sleeper sofa, 2.5 bath. Large kitchen with Cuisinart appliances and cookware. High thread count sheets, thick and thirsty towels. Sleeps up to 9 comfortably.

This is a great home for 2-4 couples, or 1-2 families.
Even single couples are comfortable here, and for much less than a nice hotel room.

Dozens more photos available! We have stayed at many vacation rentals ourselves, and have included every amenity we could think of, so you can the vacation of your dreams.

* Coolers, boogie boards, beach chairs and pool floats
* Storage containers to protect your food.
* High end linens and towels.
* Clock radios with CD players in the bedrooms
* Hawaiian CD's to get you in the aloha mood!
* High speed wireless internet.
* Large gas grill.
* Fully equipped, spacious and modern kitchen, full size washer and dryer, refrigerator with ice and water in door; Cuisinart cookware and appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster), rice cooker, lots of the cooking gadgets, ironing board and iron, hair dryers.
* 4 HD smart TV's so you can play your Netflix, Hulu or Amazon accounts. DVD/CD Sony Audio/Home Theater system. 65" TV also has Tivo, downstairs TV has Xbox
* DVD library (a selection of movies for adults and kids)
* Book library
* Games

The house is on 2 floors. Upstairs is the kitchen, living room with big TV, dining room, main lanai, bedroom with king bed and ensuite bath, den with pull out queen bed (comfortable memory foam mattress), and powder room. Downstairs are two bedrooms with 1 full bathroom in the hallway between them. Both bedrooms downstairs walk out to the lower, travertine lanais, and the pool. One has queen bed, lounging chair, and vanity. The other has 1 queen and 1 twin, and an armoire with x-box.

In addition to the home, weather and location play and important role in your VR choice. We are a 5-10 minute drive from downtown Kailua-Kona. Everything from Wal-mart and Safeway to the cute downtown shops and restaurants of Kailua-Kona can be reached in just a few minutes. You can even be snorkeling at one of the local beaches in just a few minutes. The airport is 15 minutes north, the mega resorts and beaches are 30 minutes north, and the Volcano is 2.5 hours south.

In terms of weather, because we are on the side of a mountain, you can choose your weather by elevation. Down toward the water it is very hot with little breeze. You would often want air conditioning at that elevation. Up at 1200-1500 feet it's quite cool; homes have fireplaces and residents wear long pants. Most people believe 600-800 feet elevation is ideal, and our home is at 650 feet. It warm enough to feel that you are in Hawaii, but almost never gets too warm. We do have 7 ceiling fans, one in each room. In the evening, cool air comes down the mountain, and you can control the temperature in the house by opening and closing the front door to allow this air in or not. (Note that up north where the resorts are, it is often quite windy, but here we only get light breezes.)

Many of our guests report that they had all kinds of plans to visit places around the island, but they actually spent a lot of their time at the house, floating in the pool, hanging out on the lanai and watching the sunset, not wanting to leave. This is the experience we try to provide.

Certainly there are many vacation rentals you can choose from, but we hope you will choose ours so we can share this magical place with you. There are places that are less expensive, but we have yet to see something comparable to ours in terms of views, amentities, luxury, and style, for less.

Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to book a stay. Mahalo and A Hui Hou

Now with photovoltaic solar power, you can enjoy a green vacation in more ways than one!

The Best of Everything!
Fantastic views, warm pool, wonderful decks, gorgeous furnishings, great neighborhood, beach chairs, boogie boards, quality linens, fluffy towels, gourmet kitchen, perfect location, cute geckos, and wild turkeys to brighten our morning walks. After one glorious month in your awesome home we felt as if it were our own! Annie, our 9 year old grandaughter regularly asks, "Do you think someone is in our Kona house now?"
Kona is delightful, near and far beaches beautiful, snorkel and body surfing close, and so much to see and do on the big island. We will definitely be back! We had a fantastic vacation and thank you so much for everything. It was truly "The Best"!!

Great EVERYTHING....We will be back for sure!!
This is the 5th year we've rented a home on Kona for Spring Break, and this home was by far the best we've rented. Everything is in good shape...pool is warm...view is fantastic from the entire home! Just wish there was a time machine on site, so we could stay longer. Had an issue with the coffee maker on the first day...sent email to owner and she replied within a few hours and allowed me to buy a brand new one...no questions asked.

Amazing!
This home was everything we had hoped for. Beautiful inside and out. The kitchen was fully stocked, the backyard and pool are perfect with an amazing view. The house had snorkel gear and boogie boards that we used almost everyday. Close to shopping and not far from wonderful beaches. This home is perfect! We loved it and will stay again soon.

Perfect perfect perfect
I knew when I booked this house by the photos it was going to be lovely. Stepping through the front door did not disappoint.The house is beautifully furnished and decorated. I wanted to take home all the paintings and carved lights, bedheads and mirrors. So much room for our family of four. Our 2 teenage daughters had their own separate rooms, so no fighting,Yay. Loved sitting on the Lanai watching whales through the binoculars and ending the day with a gorgeous sunset. Our youngest loved the pool and swam almost daily. We loved the garden filled with tropical plants and geckos. Even had a friendly neighbourhood cat drop by.The kitchen was great to use, the laundry very useful. Shops and beaches about a 15 minute drive away. Your house made this little Aussie family very very happy. I cried when we had to leave, 9 days was not long enough. We hope to be back one day. Thankyou so much.

Alison M 5 Stars!

Wonderful, relaxing home for large family!
We recently stayed in Kona for the IM, and found the location of this home fantastic as if was not too far to drive into town, but far enough away for a peaceful, relaxing stay!

Our family of 8 (with our 2 older children often visiting for meals) had plenty of space when we were home, many options for quiet spaces or meals, and of course we loved the pool, and watching sunset every night was just beautiful.

The house is exactly as offered from the pictures, and the master bedroom (with renovated bathroom) is fantastic. We cooked many meals in the kitchen, and grilled downstairs often during our 10 day stay, and appreciated that many of the basic kitchen condiments were kept in the pantry!

There was also a day home where the younger kids found the games and jigsaw cupboard, and had a great time, and the pool toys were available (to which we added a few more before we left!!)

I would love to stay there again, especially during a quieter time in Kona, and would have no hesitation in recommending the property.

Exceeded our Expectations
We stayed at this lovely residence for two weeks in March this year. The location was excellent - so convenient and easy to find all the necessities. There were 8 of us together as a family (6 adults, 2 kids), and the size and layout was perfect...enough room for everyone to have their own space, yet remain close. The house and yard are very well maintained, and the owners were extremely helpful if anything was needed. The pool was wonderful! Having a heated pool when travelling with smaller kids is such a bonus. We made friends with the family that rented the place next door and their kids preferred our warmer pool. :)
The view of the ocean from the lanais and pool deck were amazing! We spent most of our time at the house in the yard or in the pool. The kitchen is a great size, well equipped, and it was easy to cook for a group and all eat together.
I would highly recommend this lovely home to anyone travelling to Kona and would stay there again in a heartbeat. It exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful house with plenty of gorgeous views!
We stayed 6 weeks in this beautiful home. It was a very relaxing stay. I love the heated pool. I was in it every day. The house has everything you would need. It is beautifully furnished and decorated. It has gorgeous ocean views. It was so nice to have our own space to spread out in. It felt so much like home that my family and I didn't want to leave.

There is not really much to add to the other reviews, so I will just say that this house was absolutely terrific in terms of location, amenities, condition, decor and price! There were seven of us and everyone was so comfortable. In case you need a 4th bedroom, I can tell you that the den worked really well as a bedroom for our teenager---nice and private--it really was the perfect floorplan for our group. Am recommending this house to anyone who wants to go to Kona!

Well, we (family of seven including 3 grandparents) reluctantly packed up and headed for home on Friday after a truly magical time at your beautiful abode! The house exceeded our expectations in every way possible (and I am a bit of neat freak and quite particular!). The kitchen was very well-equipped and the views were unbeatable - breathtaking! The kids, age 2 and 4, enjoyed the heated pool and neighbourhood walks, especially the turkeys!! As always, the geckos were a huge hit! Kona itself is such a special place and once again we found ourselves remarking on the perfect days in paradise. The house is so central yet pleasantly removed from the noise and busy atmosphere of downtown! Thank you so much for renting your home to us, you were most helpful - we would recommend it, without any hesitation!

May 6, 2012 An amazing home for an amazing trip!!! 5*
We just want to start off by saying that the pictures of your home do not do it justice!!! This is so beautiful and amazing that we still can't believe we are here!! Thank you again for sharing this with others. Anyone that is lucky enough to come and see this place will instantly feel the magic of Hawaii. Thank you for making our first trip to Hawaii an unforgettable one!!!!

Mar 6, 2012 A relaxing retreat 5*
Our stay was wonderful. The house is in a convenient location in Kona just a quick drive to shops and the coastline. The pictures were exactly what we expected and hoped for. Having balconies to watch the sunset on was great. The patio/deck was our favorite place to hang out. The house was well equipped and didn't leave us needing anything. It was also very clean and tidy.

Aug 13, 2011 A fabulous home and a fantastic week of vacation! 5*
I've rented quite a number of homes and condos through *** over the years with travel all over the Western US and Canada. This home stands alone in being the nicest I've had the pleasure of visiting so far. The location relative to everything in the Kona area is superb - just far enough away to enjoy the quiet but so close a trip to the store is no big deal. The views are incredible. I found my way to the lanai every morning to enjoy watching the sun make it's way up the hill and every night to enjoy the skyline along the coast. The home is beautifully decorated with very tasteful art and comfortable furnishings. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and actually ate a couple of meals in despite some of the best dining around being within minutes. Recommendations in the guest book were spot on. We particularly enjoyed Holuakoa Gardens just up the road - what an incredible place! We were on the island for my daughter's wedding and had several guests stop by during our visit. Everyone of them was simply gasping with delight at the place and I have forwarded the location to many of them who have indicated this is where they will stay on their next visit. I give this home 6 stars! Thank you Cindi and Glen!

Jun 15, 2011 Fabulous home and view!! 5*
Beautifully furnished, incredible view, wonderful pool!! A very relaxing experience and the Geckos were a wonderful highlight...hiding behind pictures and window coverings, running across walls...they were so cute and brought a smile to our faces daily:) We will definitely return!!

Mar 13, 2011 Paradise Found 5*
This house was wonderful! The view, the location, the spaciousness, the geckos :)...It was just as described. We loved the coolers, beach chairs, and boogie boards that were provided. Hard to haul those items on a plane and nice not to spend vacation $ on them. The kitchen was well stocked and the full size washer/dryer came in handy. The owners were easy to work with and also provided many good guidebooks and great recommendations. Did I mention the view? We named the cozy little deck off the dining room the "Clubhouse" and it was my favorite spot. I'd sit on one of the bar stools every night with a tropical beverage watching the sunset. The only "complaint" I have...I didn't think the pool was warm enough since it was advertised as heated. I would stay in this house again with no hesitation. I highly recommend it!

We had a wonderful stay at your home. Everything was as described! We spent most of the time we were there on the lanai amazed at the views and astounding sunsets! House has everything you need to enjoy your stay; coolers, beach towels, kitchen gadgets. Thank you, Glen and Cindi for letting us stay in your home! (Oh and we loved the geckos!)

Nov 1, 2010 Cozy Living! 5*
Glen and Cindi, thanks for letting us stay at your beautiful home. We truly enjoyed our stay. The kids never grew tired of swimming in the pool, and my wife and I enjoyed just hanging out poolside on your beautiful deck. The panoramic views of Kona and beyond from your home were amazing. Your home was warm and inviting, beautifully decorated, and always a pleasure to come back to after a day's worth of activities. I enjoyed taking strolls around the pleasant, hillside neighborhood in the early mornings of the day. The kids enjoyed chasing geckos around the house, while wife enjoyed relaxing, reading, and taking in the coziness of being at home. All in all, we enjoyed every bit of our stay here and hope to come back and visit you, again, soon.

We stayed at the Kilohana house for 3 weeks in February/March. The pictures are completely accurate and unstaged. Beautifully decorated and furnished, the house is equipped with all the necessities and so much more. Watching the Winter Olympics on the 62" television was almost like being there, and the view from the lanai (and every room) was mesmerising. Great location for doing everything but far enough away to be safe and serene. When you venture out, everything you need for daytrips and the beach is there for you. It's like having a holiday home of your own. We wouldn't stay anywhere else on the Big Island. Thank you Cindi and Glen.

We just returned from five glorious days at the Kilohana House. It was everything we could want for a perfect vacation. Every detail is thought of from the kitchen accessories to the pool toys to movies, games and books. After a day exploring the coast or shopping in town, watching the sunset from the pool was ending to a perfect Hawaiian day. This was our most relaxing vacation ever and choosing this home was the smartest decision we made. You will not be disappointed!

Jan 24, 2010 5*
The house and furnishings were wonderful - just like the pictures. The sunsets were amazing from the lan'ai! The house was a comfortable fit for the 7 of us - thanks!

The "Kona View House" is an exceptional home with extraordinary, breathtaking views. One minute on the lanai or by the pool and you simply feel your worries melt away. We have stayed at this home multiple times and there is a reason! It is the perfect place to relax, reconnect and it's convenient to everything you need. The recent improvement and upgrades have made this home even more remarkable. We count ourselves fortunate that we have the opportunity to stay at such a lovely home. I highly recommend it for those who want a great value, peace and quiet, with all the modern conveniences. It's romantic for those who want to be alone or perfect for those with a family who want a little something for everyone. We love the Big Island - its Hawaiian charm and personality. If you want to experience how to live "aloha" this is your place. It's truly a dream home and the reason why our vacation was so memorable. We had the time of our lives!

Wow!!! What a GREAT house!!! So tastefully decorated and comfortable. THe pool is fantastic. True Kama'aina living. Makes ya just want to hang by the pool and drink Mai Tais from the tiki bar all day. And the privacy is fantastic. Beets the heck out of staying at a resort!
