Absolutely breathtaking! Such a beautiful home and view of the ocean! Our party of seven felt right at home. We would definitely stay at Kona Bay Estates again.
My entire family had a wonderful time the gated community is beautiful .Everyone had their own bathroom and privacy. Only small items are some tears in bar stool fabric and pool lights are not all functioning. This is not to detract from our great experience we will be returning again in the future.
Had a great time.
We had an amazing week! The home is gorgeous in an amazing location and was well stocked (kitchen, bathroom, beach supplies, etc). We had a small issue (dropped necklace down a drain!) and they sent someone right over to help fix (and get the necklace back!). Would love to go back and stay here again and would recommend to others!
Loved our stay!
The property had everything we needed for our group of 9 (6 adults and 3 kids ages 7,10,12). Plenty of room for everyone. Property location is perfect, awesome view and lot's to do near by. The pool is great and we used it everyday. We'd rent this property again for a large group.
Other observations; at some point the property needs to undergo a deep clean. We pulled out the trundle bed under the bunk beds for one of the kids to sleep on and it was disgustingly dirty under the bunks and didn't use it. The BBQ is gas and will not automatically light; we had to use a lighter and it would light but was inconsistent. The BBQ needs a deep clean as well. Having the accordion doors open was awesome. Letting the air flow in was nice, however some of the doors stick and and grind when you open them and a few pins to lock the doors at the base would not go in securely or at all. When it rained hard the upstairs bedroom had a leak coming down through the ceiling fan. We called about it and they sent maintenance our right away to take care of it, but it rained hard again later in the week and it still leaked.
This ocean front property can’t be beat! Not only is this home beautiful and spacious enough to accommodate our group of nine but it’s location and views right on the water were amazing. It has a very large pool that we used every day and we used the kitchen and barbecue to cook daily as well. It was very well stocked And the property is very meticulously kept. Well worth every penny and we can’t wait to return soon.

Incredible private location with incredible pool and only steps away from the ocean.
The response time from management was fast and any issues were handled extremely quick. We will come back again - guaranteed!
I can’t say enough good things about this property and the host. House was perfect and had everything you needed. It was gorgeous and comfertabel and the view you can’t beat. I ran into town (Kona) each day and was such a nice run. Was great being that close too. Will come back 💯! Thank you for being so wonderful.
The best views, very convenient location and the house felt like home. The kids enjoyed the pool so much. The house was great for everyone to have their own space. Would highly recommend (maybe one little suggestion would be outdoor furniture that is a bit more cozy?)
Spectacular sunsets! The house accommodated a range of ages beautifully… a 4 and 6 year old to great grandma, who is 92 years young 🤗. Loved the well-appointed kitchen overlooking the gorgeous ocean view. Professional and friendly service all around. Lovely memories made here to last a lifetime.
We had an amazing time at this property, it was very clean with comfortable beds. We loved spending time in the pool! It is located right on the ocean and just a short walk along the lava rocks leads to a sandy beach. It is also close to many restaurants and bars on Ali’i Drive.
Everybody enjoyed this beautiful property. The open seaside living area provided a place to relax and enjoy the ocean sounds any time of the day or night. The kids loved the deep and long pool. Communication was prompt and clear. No issues of note during our stay.
Great property. No propane for the grill. Loved the view and location
This location is phenomenal. Lots of good reviews so I'll do a parent perspective.
While the property is not necessarily kid focused, there is currently a cot and high chair in the garage, pool floaties, and a few odds and ends. I wouldn't call it decked out for kids but I came with a 1, 3, and 5 year old and survived just fine. The hardest part is these gorgeous doors that open to the pool and make your heart skip a few beats in terror wondering if you can keep a good enough eye on the littlest one. We had a system going at the end but there were still a couple escapes. Our 1 year old learn how to turn handles on this trip...
There are tons of kids plates and silverware in pink and blue so fighting doesn't have to happen. The dishwasher works perfectly.
The house is close to keiki beach, and the older kids walked there with tolerable whining. It's great for first snorkling or just floating.
Target is 3 mins away. Literally. Sold amirite?
There are tubs for baby baths, with these beautiful zen rocks below that the kids love to eat, hide, stash, pocket, etc. So our baby learned how to shower finally. There are enough towels. This is amazing.
The pool is perfect for kids. The rocks are safe enough for 3 and up to scramble and there are tidepools for all ages.
There is a washing machine that works well and while the convection stove was my least favorite thing in the world (Miele! Why did you do this to the world?!?) it easily tolerated a load of crayons spilled on it.
There are bunk beds in the bottom room that our girls loved. It has a pullout and an unfold couch so you could stuff 4 kids in there easily.
It's also 6 mins to "downtown" Kona and the farmers market where your kids can easily spend $10 on filling your return suitcase with chotchkis that they will immediately forget about when they get home. There is also Dole whip, OK popciscles and excellent shave ice in walking distance from an actual parking lot that is easyish to park in (IMO parking in Kona feels bonkers). Oh, and it's 15 minutes from the airport. Boomsies.
There is a concierge but he was kinda not useful, especially for big family bookings. Not that I really needed that anyways.
Wonderful vacation for me and my whole fam.
Our multigenerational family visited Kona and loved our stay at Lucky 42. The house is spacious and comfortable, has all the amenities needed, and has excellent views. Kids loved the pool and it was wonderful to open the doors and enjoy the breezes. We had a great time and can't wait to come back.
We enjoyed our stay at this great home in an excellent location
This is an enchanting piece of paradise! Well appointed and stylish. We had a wonderful stay, the staff was super responsive and you will find everything you need here for a relaxing stay with spectacular ocean views. The owners obviously care about their property. Great location near town and attentive concierge service!
You won’t be disappointed, you will leave with many happy memories of beautiful sunsets in this serene setting!
This was the best house for two families. The view was amazing, the house was spotless and the location was fantastic. It was altogether a fantastic place to spend a week in paradise.
Really magnificent location; really lovely home. My family of seven adults (three couples and one single) booked this house MONTHS in advance and had a good number of choices. We were really happy with this selection. The four main bedrooms are well laid out and well situated; each couple felt like they had great privacy and good bathroom access. The master is gorgeous; but defnintely bright starting early, so bring a sleep mask if you are light sensitive. The shared space was generous and once you open the glass doors to the yard, the entire ocean feels like it's part of the family room. We enjoyed watching the sea life (we saw dolphins almost daily). The kitchen was well stocked. The garage had a great supply of pool floats, sand chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear. There's a small beach located inside the gated community that is wonderful for young kids and timid swimmers and a larger public beach just half a dozen houses away walk along the sea wall for more beach time. The walk to downtown Kona and all it has to offer is easy; the longest part is the walk to get out of the gated community. Communication with the management company was great; they answered questions and helped with any needs. The private pool was a huge plus and we definitely took advantage. Couple considerations for future enhancements; we would have enjoyed a coffee table for drinks/games in the family room area and a couple bikes in the garage to ride into town or along the beach road. This is a wonderful, comfortable, well cared for property with a spectacular view. Deserves nothing less than 5 stars!
