Property Details

Updated: May 26, 2015
Private, Amazing Ocean Views, 4 Bedrooms (Sleeps 8) 2.5 Baths, Heated Pool

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!) 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 $150,000 on additional improvements, including our brand new spa bath!

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 TV's including a 65' Big Screen. X-Box with games. DVD Library.

New! For 8 years our guests have loved our heated pool. But the temperature does vary based on the weather conditions. Now we have an additional option to use our heat pump, to guarantee you warm water regardless of the weather. Please ask us about this option if you are interested!

Large kitchen with Cuisinart appliances and cookware. High thread count sheets, thick and thirsty towels. Sleeps up to 8 comfortably.

Your stay at Kona View House is also environmentally friendly, since we have 33 grid-tied solar panels which produce all the power we use!

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.

Our 24+ 5 star reviews assure you that you will have the vacation of your lives! Guests return to Kona View House year after year, and even have come back to get married!

Please click onto our website where we have dozens more photos! 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.

* 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; new double oven, Cuisinart cookware and appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster), rice cooker, lots of the cooking gadgets, ironing board and iron, hair dryers.

* 4 TV's with cable tv (including HD on the 2 largest); Sony Audio/Home Theater system.

* 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, private den/bedroom with pull out queen bed, 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 is a wonderful room with queen bed. The other has two twin beds which can be made into a king, and an armoire with x-box.

In addition to the home, weather and location play an important role in your vacation rental 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's warm enough to feel that you are in Hawaii, but almost never gets too warm. 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.) We do have 6 ceiling fans for warm days.

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.

Don't forget all the ways we will save you $ on your vacation! You can cook your meals at home, and you will have no rental costs for beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards, coolers and snorkel gear.

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

Note: We do not allow parties; only guests staying at the home, and others as pre-authorized.

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.

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.

This is the 5 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 questions asked.
