Private Home With Panoramic Sunset Ocean View In Kailua Kona, Hawaii

This home has direct ocean views from the living room, the dining room, the kitchen and the master bedroom! You can hear the surf from your bed at night!

This is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath private luxury home with a panoramic (sunset) view of the Ocean. This is not an 'ohana' (or in-law suite) associated with another house as some of them are. This is a separate house on it's own separate lot. This house has a private solar-heated pool…a hot tub with an ocean view...and is a 5 minute drive to the main shopping and restaurant district in town and also to the closest beach. The house has an extensive video collection of 'favorite' movies (including children's movies), with wireless in the entire house. The back of this house overlooks the ocean and is very private. The front overlooks the mountains.

We call this house the 'Crystal House' because of the crystals found in the foyer and scattered around the yard.

The house is in Kailua-Kona about 2 miles south of the main part of town with many restaurants and shops. Kailua-Kona is the main tourist spot on The Big Island. It is on the sunny side of the island (as opposed to Hilo which is on the rainy side). It is 80-85 degrees and sunny almost every day of the year in Kona. Kailua-Kona is on the coastline of the island. The Big Island is a magical place to visit. It's easier to understand this magic once you come, since a lot of this has to do with the 'feeling' many people get while on the island.

~Oasis at the Crystal House~

  • 5 of 5
We have a family of 6 (our oldest girl is special needs) so to have a place where we aren't falling on top of each other is a must. The Crystal House didn't disappoint! We think the pictures online are nice but don't do justice to how truly beautiful The Crystal House is. From the moment we stepped inside the door we were blown away by the beauty of the decor. Laurie and Jacob have made the home elegant but not pretentious. There were so many beautiful pieces of artwork (it did make my husband and I a bit nervous with the kids) but they were placed well (out of the way). The feng shui in the home gave off good vibes. It was a regal home but it always felt cozy and inviting. There's a binder that Laurie and Jacob have created about great locations:beaches, restaurants, hiking, sightseeing, shopping- you name it and it was in there. We also had almost the same info in an email that they sent us but it was nice having it to read through at the house. My husband and I stayed in the master bedroom and "whoa" what an amazing area- the huge bathroom (tub and shower separated), private toilet and bidet, 2 sinks on opposite sides from each other and the bed was so comfy. I haven't slept that good in a bed other than mine in awhile. Our private lanai was amazing as well. We had a direct view of the pool but even better the view of the ocean. The 2 rooms downstairs were very nice as well. And the bathroom. Everything was beautifully decorated. The kitchen had any utensil you could want. There were a variety of spices and oils for cooking, as well as beautiful dishes and goblets. There was plenty of dishwasher soap and also laundry detergent and dryer sheets. Everything was easy and accessible to operate. The lanai on the main (pool) level had a wonderful outdoor table that seated 7. We were in the pool and hot tub every night. The kids had a hay day with picking the star fruit - which they gobbled right up! My husband bbq'd almost every night. All of our kids (ages 9-17) loved the home. This was the best vacation we have ever been on. I would highly recommend this to family and friends. We loved The Crystal House and can't wait to come back!
Lastly, although we didn't get to meet Laurie and Jacob they were always available to answer any questions we might have had. And on our last day I had forgotten my new speaker cord. Jacob reached my husband right away and is sending it back to me. Mahalo!!!!!
We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing, beautiful vacation.

Two Month Stay-wonderful Experience

  • 4 of 5
This property was great. Well decorated and very roomy. We arrived at night and were excited as to how nice the house was. When we woke the next morning and saw the gorgeous ocean view we were pleasantly pleased. The owners provided everything you need, from music and snorkeling gear to cooking supplies and spices. The landscaping was beautiful and provided a very private setting. They are neighbors on both sides, but you'd never know it because of the landscaping. We watched the sunset nightly from the pool deck and used the pool and hot tub daily. The location is perfect. We'd go back in a minute.

Amazing two month stay- Would recommend to everyone 4+ rating

  • 4 of 5
The house was more than we had hoped. We arrived at night and was pleasantly surprised by how nice the house was. When we woke up the next morning and saw the gorgeous view, we were trilled. Everything we needed was provided from good music and snorkeling gear to cooking supplies and spices. The landscaping is not only beautiful, it makes the house very private. There are neighbors on both sides, but you would never know it. We watched the sun set every evening from the pool deck. Would go back in a minute!!!!

Our family of 5 had the time of our lives. The house matched the pictures perfectly. We spent as much time enjoying the peaceful lani and we did sightseeing. We would consider this home again.

Exceptionally Beautifuk

  • 5 of 5
It is our departure day, sad yet happy in that we spent the last few days at such a beautiful home. Everything you could possibly want or need is waiting for you. I couldn't have been more pleased. Laurie and Jacob: although we didn't meet, we kept writing each other. We were invited to join a lovely Drum Circle meeting and absolutly enjoyed the evening. Thank you again for your generious use of your home and all the amenities. Oh, and I must not forget this special treat. Laurie knew how much we wanted the hot tub, as the one they had was unrepairable. Prior to our arrival they were able to install a new one!! What a wonderful surprise!!! Thanks again for everything!!

Beautiful pool and view

  • 5 of 5
We have had the best Hawaiian vacation of our lives. Three generations - grandparents, parents and teenagers - cannot be better accommodated than in the Crystal House. We found it to be an excellent home base for our exploration of the Big Island. We have wanted for nothing the entire time we've been here. Yesterday the pool water seemed as warm as the air! The blue guide book and suggestions provided by the owner were informative and we've done most of the top rated activities. BBQing fresh Island raised beef for friends who were staying in a hotel, snorkeling with sea turtles and seeing a rare Hawaiian monk seal were our highlights but walking through the lava tubes and visiting Kileaua Caldera were also great experiences. Our host could not have been more accommodating and we arrived to find the kitchen stocked with many staples. Shop at KTA and you will find a post office conveniently across the way. Expect to find everything you need to keep the entire family entertained - books, pool toys, coolers, playroom for small children, TV with DVR, an entire cupboard of games, playing cards, poker chips, meditation garden and sauna. Enjoy your stay! Our only surprise was that there was no computer.

See below for much much more!

BEST BOOK TO GET: 'Hawaii The Big Island Revealed' (the blue book)- hands down.

The house offers a solar heated pool, an infra red sauna, an extensive video collection, and some toys.

We have boogie boards, surf boards, towels, beach chairs, coolers etc etc. Feel free to use anything.

A fantastic WALKING PATH is just up the street- (the Walua trail is 3 blocks up the hill to the right). This is a historic trail where donkeys used to deliver goods to this town. It is a fairly flat trail (hard to find in a hilly town like Kailua-Kona) and if you look you'll see mile markers, so you will know how long you've walked.

The house is close to one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island (Kahalu'u Beach Park), one of the best surfing spots (Lyman's Beach which you can see from the bedroom), 'Magic' Sands Beach (the beach is there... then it's 'not' there!) and Keauhou Bay (that offers many water activities- we love Sea Quest fast boat snorkeling and cave tours 329-7238 and dolphin excurions (see below for much more). In downtown Kona / Alii Drive you can sign up for parasailing, kayaking and jet-skiing.

.....Ask Laurie for the complete list of activities and restaurants- also included in our guest book in the house!
