Historic downtown Kailua-Kona is a 10 minute walk away for shopping, dinning and nightlife. Make your Hawaiian memories here.

Why mark chose Kona Coast

We fell in love with Kona immediately. We found this home and knew it would be a wonderful place to share with friends and family.

What makes this house unique

Private swimming pool and spa and 180 degree views, spectacular sunsets, 2 minute walk to Honls Beach for surfing and snorkeling or a picnic lunch and a short walk to Historic downtown Kailua-Kona. This home is right in front of the Ironman turn-around buoy where spinner dolphins often congregate. You will see whales in season and many other ocean species. Comfortable Hawaiian living at it's best! All 3 upstairs bedrooms have a lanai with great views. The tradewinds flow through this house beautifully.

Very convenient to the rest of the island

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 fit comfortably.

The house does still need detail work done. The essentials were comfortable.

Owner's Response: Karon OKeefe failed to pay the cleaning fee upon arrival despite having almost a year notice and a friendly reminder. I had to deduct it from her deposit. Additionally they broke a few things and didn't notify us. I certainly wouldn't rent to them again!

A slice of heaven in Hawaii - AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

From inquiry to booking to deposit return, Mark was extremely responsive and friendly. All coordination went smoothly. This house is VERY special. Being able to fall asleep to the sound of the Pacific Ocean is such a luxury. The ocean breezes keep the house cool - NO need for air conditioning. The newly remodeled kitchen was well stocked and perfect for preparing family meals on the patio. A short walk or drive to anything that you need in Kona. Minutes north of the one of the best snorkeling beaches on Hawaii. My favorite parts about the house were the amazing sliding doors that allowed the wind and waves to be enjoyed as much inside as outside and of course the pool located directly on the ocean. Our family hopes to return next year!

Good for the heart and soul!

  • 5 of 5

Where to Begin? This holiday was a journey for our family... We had originally planed a vacation with our best friends who not able to join us due to health reasons... Mark became a friend with a kind ear and heart who made it possible for us to continue on with our holiday plans... We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home and on the Big Island... Every day we would walk through the front doors and gasp at the stunning view! Those doors that open up and bring the outside in are the best! The kitchen is stocked with everything you need and more...My 4 year old lived in the pool and became a great little swimmer on this holiday! My 16 year old loved playing on the lava rock and checking out the crab and the local eel... We made it to a different beach every day, each one was unique and had something different to offer! We hope to be back in future... Thanks again Mark, Mahalo

This house made it hard to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time...first visit to Hawaii, we will be back again! Every single time we came back from town, we would walk through the front door and gasp...the view and the ocean breezes are just incredible. Sitting in the pool/hot-tub and watching the waves is by far our favorite memory. We walked to the Kona Hotel Luau one night, that was fun...ate at Splasher's twice (once breakfast, once dinner, both yummy). Drove across the island to Hilo and explored the 'jungle side' one day, that was worth the trek!

The house was spotless, and the updated kitchen was beautiful, fully stocked. The upstairs bedrooms/bathrooms are a bit dated, but it felt kind of retro, and very 'vacation-y'! Sherry met us at the house the night we arrived, and was very kind & accommodating...the 1st night we were there the hot-tub wasn't warming up, and she had her husband out to fix it right away, and it worked perfectly after that!

Can't say enough good things about this house, thanks Mark for letting us stay!

Perfect! Dolphins every morning!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! You walk in the front door and are treated to a panoramic of ocean, with a glorious breeze and the sound of gently crashing waves. Dolphins right there in front of the house! You pinch yourself, because it feels like a dream. After a few minutes of disbelief...this place does exist, you will tear yourself away to explore the accomodations! We traveled with two families, and this house was very comfortable for eleven people. The owner has thought of so many things to ensure the comforts of home. The kitchen was well appointed for large family meals. The bathrooms are super comfortable, with tall shower heads and spacious easy entry showers. The place feels like a beach house, with worn wooden stairs that creak just enough to remind you of traditions made here. The windows open everywhere, there are places to find privacy and great places to gather. The pool and spa are lovely. The outdoor furniture was plentiful. There were great beach chairs and ice chests for outings. We made great memories here. We can't wait to go back!
