GREAT LOCATION-Large Private Home!~Right In Town

Nothing about this home will remind you of a "Condo" experience!
PLEASE Compare our location! Most all other large homes are either miles from town, or in less disireable areas near White Sands.
See more pictures, and request the address to our site.
Managed by a family on island, so we're always just a phone call away if needed!
Our home is extremely well equipped, and we are glad to help with any questions or recommendations regarding activities, beaches, restaurants, or shopping.
We're even glad to do pre-arrival grocery shopping for you, so you can just relax as soon as you arrive!
We've been doing another Kona vacation rental for several years now, so we know how to make sure you enjoy the home.
No "bare bones" rental here, you will feel like you are staying at a friends house.
You get the ENTIRE HOME! Great for groups, extended families, and a few couples traveling together!
Uniquely designed, each floor is a Home in itself! The 1st floor features an open floor plan with a large Great Room with a 47" HD LED TV and Bluera, vaulted ceiling and a sliding door to the huge covered lanai. There is a Full Kitchen with everything...including a dishwasher! Large Dining Room (adjoining Great Room), and 2 Full Baths (Master and Hallway) and 2 main floor Bedrooms (Master has King and basic TV, Hall bedroom has Queen), each with a sliding door to the lanai). Plus there is a full laundry area, complete with folding counter in the 1 car Garage...Yes, there is even a Garage!
A pull out couch (or floor futons if desired) can add up to 2 more additional young children!
Second floor is very tastefully designed, with slate tile, Koa trim, and Vaulted ceilings too. The Great Room is quite large with a 32" LED TV, and has 3 large windows for great breezes. Add to that, the genuine Koa Breakfast Bar, the dining area, the nicely appointed Kitchen, and a large covered Lanai, and you have a great area for entertaining or having great conversations! Master bedroom (King) has full bath, walk in closet, basic TV, and sliding door to private Lanai view. 2nd bedroom (Full) has large closet and sliding door to main Lanai area. There is even a Laundry with a full sized washer & dryer behind louvered doors too.
Our private road has just 11 homes on it, and we're just the 5th house from the ocean. At the end of the street is a great ocean access area that is perfect for having your favorite beverage and viewing a stunning Kona sunset. This is not a sandy beach, as those are quite spread out on the Big Island, it is an area with huge lava boulders and beautiful pieces of coral. Many times you will see dolphins, manta rays, and perhaps whales...though farther out.
Perfect residential neighborhood for people that want to be close to town! Close enough to walk to most anything if you choose. Bus pick up right across Alii, 1/2 block away!
When comparing locations, consider the neighborhood and distance from the downtown area. Kona is quite spread out, and many rentals are miles from the downtown area. There are also some older neighborhoods located more south, in the White Sands beach area. These areas are fine, if you don't mind the street noise and traffic, but are generally less desireable.
Truthfully, the only 2 beaches in town (Kahalu'u and White Sands) are very small, and very crowded...most visitors will likely only go once! So, Why stay in that neighborhood?
Our home is centrally located, and a perfect base location for your Big Island visit!

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Kailua-Kona, Big Island, Hawaii
Look no further...Book this!

What a vacation house! This house has it all! We had a great family vacation at this home. It was stocked with so many items - even the bathroom cabinets were stocked. The free Internet made it possible to stay in touch with the Mainland (darn it)! Great parking and oh the beds! So comfortable and great linens also. The BBQ area made eating outside so easy. The outside furniture is perfect for reading a relaxing book. Walk to the end of the short paved road and you might see tide pools complete with big turtles! Alright there was only one - but it was huge. Don't over think or overlook this home...just book it!
Thank you for the review Gerry, and for noticing some of the smaller things we do too! We try to make our house feel like your visiting friends, and we appreciate when guests are pleasantly surprised by the extras we provide. We're glad the house worked great for your late Christmas celebration, and we hope you can all return for another visit soon. ~ Aloha!

I couldn't wait to leave this review. Glenn and Ray have really made their vacation home a true home way from home. When you arrive it feels like they actually live there and just left for you. The house is completely stocked with everything you need whether it be kitchen cooking supplies, beach equipment and plenty of bedding for everyone. We were really impressed with the attention to detail and notes that were left all over the house. Most importantly Glenn and Ray were quick to respond to questions and were always wiling to give advice on things to do. They live in town which makes getting a hold of them very easy. This is a great house that easily accommodated our group of ten and probably one of the most affordable places for what you get. The house is one block from a rocky beach, where there are gorgeous sunsets nightly. Truly a vacation we won't forget and will definitely be back soon.
Thank you for the great review. It was a pleasure having your family as guests during the Holidays and I enjoyed getting to meet you. Yes, that rocky beach at the end of our street is one of my favorite places to sit and watch sunset too. I've even seen dolphins close to shore, and whales in the distance. Have a great New Year and we hope you will come back for another Big Island visit soon. Mahalo, Glenn

when arriving to this home it was the most exciting experience for my family this home is very beautiful and accommodating i didn't realize with the extra directions we were able to go around to hilo side and made many different stops to take pictures. Glenn and Ray is very helpful and understanding. I would suggest this place for anyone, and on my next trip i would re-rent home while being on our temple trip. thank you again Yolanda jetnil

Best Hosts Ever
April 19, 2012
I should have written this review months ago. Shame on me. We travel around the world and stay in all sorts of properties. We can honestly say that this was one of the best ever. Great location, beautiful house, wonderful coquis, and without doubt the best hosts ever. We will always try to stay here when we visit. Glenn and Ray, thank you for everything. The coffee lady at Costco sold us some of the best coffee we ever had. It will be a sad day when we run out. And thank you again for the turtle you got for Isabela. She still loves it. I am confident that you will enjoy your stay at this property!!.
Felt like home, only better
April 10, 2012
We were welcomed by the owners like we were honored guests. Seven of us stayed five days and the kids loved searching for all the edible goodies our hosts stocked for us. And then the wine and other yummies for the adults. We rented the whole house and had tons of room. The upstairs bedroom and living room were great, but on the warm side so we had to use the aircdonditioner at night. The short walk to the shore from the house was lovely -- just the thing for a sunset stroll. Walking into downtown Kona was about a mile and a half. I loved the decor: kitch old Hawaii, yet tasteful and cozy. Owners were on the spot to answer any touristy questions. Just like having your own concierge. All emails and money dealings handled promptly and personably. Having owners nearby is so much better than an agency or absentee owner. Don't hesitate!
Amazing! Ready to go back!

Thank you Ray and Glenn! Your property exceeded all our expectations ! Your advertisement that it is well stocked is an understatement. Not only was there enough food in the cupboards to last through any emergency we also had medical supplies to treat any minor mishap. Decorating for Chrstmas was a special touch and being greeted by the lit tree a heartwarming site. The beds were so comfortable and linens colorful. I really appreciated your well organized garage full of boogie boards, coolers, snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels and laundry facilities. The decks with barbecues, comfortable furniture and tiki torches made our meals a treat. Thanks for your advice on things to see and do while visiting the Big Island. Our whole family enjoyed it so much and we'd love to come back. We will definitely try to rent your home again.

Best House in Kona
August 2, 2011
We have stayed at many rental homes in the kona area and this is by far the best. Everything you could want is there. Model home clean, quality home furnishings, bug free, comfortable, quiet. The house is close to town, but in a nice residential neighborhood. The perfect upscale, family home. Peaceful, with amazing views from the upstairs deck. Downstairs, you can pick fruit in the yard and enjoy the lovely flowers and tropical trees. We rented both units for seven of us. My husband and I brought our adult daughter and her boyfriend, and our three teenagers. Everyone was happy with the house. Teenagers were happy, almost a miracle. The house had wi-fi, board games, scuba gear, boogie boards, tv's in all the rooms. Mom appreciated the dishwasher, washer, dryer and the overall cleanliness of the whole house. The bedding was soft, new, with comfortable mattresses. We did not need to use the air conditioner, because the fans were so effective. Most houses have fans, but they are usually cheap, wobbly, and noisy. These fans are silent and are operated by a remote. Top of the line in both design and function. The decor is so much nicer than you normally see in rental homes. This is tasteful, not tacky. They have a lock box, so you don't have to worry about locking yourself out. They also have off street parking. The driveway can fit severall cars. The garage also offers a recycle center, so no feeling guilty tossing cans. The owners were so nice and welcoming. They went out of their way to make this an amazing trip. Tourist informaton, snacks, lots of helpful notes. Our only concern is how popular this house is going to be. We want to stay there again on our next Hawaii vacation.

Ten Star Vacation Home!
July 14, 2011
If I could give this beautiful Kona home 10 stars I would. It was perfect for the 5 of us. Very well stocked and beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable and lots of space in the living areas to move around and not be on top of each other. And having 4 bathrooms was wonderful. The owners were so kind and sweet and provided us with everything they said they would and more. I highly recommend this home for your next stay in Hawaii. You won't be sorry. The location is great, near town but off the main drag so it's very quiet. Short walk to a beach and short drive to another one. And the home is clean, clean, clean!! And very reasonable rates. You can't ask for more.
Best Vacation House in Kona!
June 10, 2011
All The other reviews are very accurate. These are outstanding people. For example: Rich had heard that I was having trouble with my back , so he immediately came over with a tube of "biofreeze" to help eliminate the pain. He wouldn't take any money...he was just concerned for my well being. Kelly Not only is the house beautiful & furnished with anything you might ever want or need---they also checked on us several times to make sure we were doing well & had everything we needed. Our daughter who is not well, was with us also & even on the days she wasn't up to getting out, she had a wonderful time relaxing in that beautiful setting & listening to the birds off the lanai. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Kona. Barbara

The home was accommodated with every little thing one could need on vacation, and the home owners were very thoughtful, and kind to all of us. Amazing home, amazing owners!!

Perfect Holiday Accommodations
March 28, 2011
Spacious and beautiful, a wonderful getaway home. Could not ask for more. Everything you need and more. Short walk to the water, close to the center of town. Beautifully landscaped, view of the ocean from top floor. Very special home for holiday or any time

Everything you need!!

Fabulous! Has everything you could need. Perfect vacation home. Was everything as advertised and more. Felt like home. Could have only brought clothes and would have had all we needed. Owner was so much more than accommodating. Spotless home. Arrived to find snacks and drinks ready after our flight. I would recommend this home to family and friends. Wonderful home!!
