Enjoy a perfect vacation in this private Hawaiian home.

Imagine arriving in Hawaii and pulling up to your own private home with ocean views from every bedroom! This spacious home is located in a beautiful upscale neighborhood and has a private, heated pool, and a huge lanai with one of the best sunset views in Kona.

This home easily accommodates 3-4 couples or 1-2 families and much more affordable and convenient than a nice hotel. It is also baby-friendly, with 2 play-pens, sliding door locks and staircase gate.

Because of its location and elevation (615 ft), you not only get the amazing panoramic ocean views, but also island breezes flowing through the home ensuring fresh air and comfortable temperatures. Conveniently located, you are a short drive (5-10 minutes) from all of the action in downtown Kona, Alii drive and beaches, whale watching adventures and golf resorts, and only 15-20 minutes from the airport.

The main floor of the home offers a large kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry room and 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom with a California King size bed, large bathroom, walk-in closet, and opens onto the outdoor lanai. A second bedroom upstairs has a Queen bed and large bathroom across the hall, and also opens up to the lanai.

The lower level includes two bedrooms that access the pool deck. One has 2 Queen beds and the other has a California King and family room with couch and recliner and TV. There's also an additional full bathroom downstairs, conveniently located between the bedrooms.

Elegant furnishings and decorated Hawaiian style (upgraded since our last photos), this spacious home has an open floor plan with high ceilings, large rooms, and two living/family room areas. The kitchen has a counter height table set for 4, center island, stainless steel appliances and is large enough for sharing quality time while the group chef whips up a meal! Extra details are included, such as Reverse Osmosis filtered drinking water, Air Fryer.

Outside, enjoy the incredible manicured landscaping with beautiful tropical plants and flowers (several Plumerias for Hawaiian leis).

The heated pool is an amazing mild saline pool (read more about it on our website, linked below). The large pool deck offers both seating and table arrangements for sunbathing or sitting in the shade under covered areas and lounging, watching the kids swim, or reading a book. It is the perfect place to have fun with your friends and family and also relax, or fire up the BBQ.

According to guests, the lanai is definitely one of the best features of the house. It has 4 different seating arrangements, is covered, and has comfortable temperatures 24 hours a day ~ never too hot or cold. Wake up with your morning coffee while reclining in the lounger and bird watching. We even have a bird book so you can identify the countless varieties. Enjoy your lunch at the bistro table, or create a cozy, romantic dinner at the table for two while watching the sunset.

Sunsets are absolutely amazing with the 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean! We include binoculars for whale watching from the lanai. You can also see surfers at the Big Island's most popular surfing spot!

We need to mention that the house is in a residential neighborhood and our neighbors are very concerned about noise levels at the house. They also have the ability to get our permit to rent revoked. The two main issues we have had were noisy kids in the pool and outdoor conversations after dark. It may be unnatural for children to play in a pool at moderate volumes, but we have to require it. There are other neighborhoods designated resort neighborhoods which would be a better choice for noisier groups. Thanks for your consideration!

We have two security cameras on premises. The doorbell, and one looking at the driveway.

We have a STVR (short term vacation rental) permit issued by the County of Hawaii.

We've visited the Big Island many times over the years and this has to be one of our favorite vacation rentals we've enjoyed. The house was a perfect layout for our family of four + grandparents and brother-in-law. We all had our separate spaces, but could easily gather in the main living/dining area and spend time on the amazing deck with the stunning views of Kona and the ocean. My kids loved the heated pool - and the owners supplied so many great pool toys and floats for them to enjoy. The kitchen is one of the most fully stocked rental kitchens I've ever used - so many dishes and options for cooking. We made many of our meals and felt at home here. The location is ideal - quiet and private, but very close to town. We were within easy reach of our favorite beaches and snorkel locations. Our hosts were communicative and helpful and we absolutely plan to come back someday!

The house was incredible! Our group of 5 of us spent 5 nights here as we were playing in a golf tournament in Kona. The house was exactly as described in the description and there is nothing at all that wasn't perfect. The kitchen was incredibly stocked with all of the supplies you could need to cook. Tons of spices and dressings left in the fridge. The ice make was full and we had everything we needed. The hosts had all kinds of beach toys, towels, and a book by the front door with instructions for everything. Can not recommend this house highly enough!

The hosts for this fabulous Kona area home were Fantastic- super accommodating and accessible; very helpful in getting our stay off to a great start. The home is very well appointed - the kitchen lacks nothing; bedrooms and bathrooms are very well put together. The view from the upper lanai is outstanding & the pool area is comfortable & well equipped. Many thanks for a wonderful vacation with our grown children & their spouses and my parents.

We were very comfortable in this large home that had a gorgeous view. You can tell the owners use it regularly because it is well stocked with all the things you may need. We had some complications with our travel and timeline and they were very kind and supportive. The view is really incredible, and my son loved being in the pool everyday. Two of the rooms have mini splits which made nights cooler, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The quantity of snorkeling and beach gear was impressive! You really don’t need to bring much of that. We enjoyed daily walks in the neighborhood including a local walking trail where we met a lot of the neighbors. Our age ranges were 6-74 and everyone enjoyed it. We did pay a nominal fee to heat the pool even warmer than it already was because we’re wimps. Well worth it! Basically it’s a great house and you’ll be happy here!

Beautiful, comfortable home with everything you need. We had mixed ages and the size and condition of property is excellent. Comfy beds and amazing lanai with breathtaking views! Took a sunset photo each evening and each one was different and amazing! Decor is "tropical" and attractive. We grilled in 2 nights, ate out a few nights and ordered Door dash too. Pool is awesome and plenty of towels/toys as well as a selection of beach supplies too. We found the 2 porta cribs useful though no high chair (as was in the amenities listed) but we brought a camp chair for the 8 mo old which worked great. The breeze and ceiling fans helped keep everyone cooled. Lots of bananagrams at the large dining table. :) Would definitely stay here again (convenient location too) if we are blessed enough to be able to! Mahalo !

The home is spacious and well equipped. The pool area comfortable with plenty of seating. A bonus having chairs to take to the beach for those needing a seat. The kitchen was well appointed for cooking with an array of appliances plus a BBQ. We had 7 people and never felt crowded. It was nice to be in a neighborhood and close to beaches.

Jon & Jackie were absolutely amazing hosts! Communication was very timely, and Jackie went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was the best it could possibly be. The house couldn’t have been any more perfect to celebrate our 25th anniversary with our grown children and their spouses/so’s. There was plenty of room for the 8 of us to enjoy meals, games and pool time together, but we also had room to wind down privately when necessary. I could go on and on about how wonderful this home is, but you should check it out for yourself! Thank you, Jon & Jackie, for sharing your slice of paradise with us…we will definitely stay here on our next trip to the Big Island! Mahalo:)

We had 3 separate family’s , and the house fit all of our needs. Really appreciated having access to the snorkel and beach gear. Kitchen so organized and we were able to make full meals each night. Highly recommend Sea Paradise company for a night time snorkel. It is 4.4 miles from the house and the crew was amazing. Jon and Jackie were so available before and during our stay, probably appreciate that the most. Highly recommend renting this beautiful location,

We are so happy we found this home! I looked for 8 months to find a vacation home in Kona, Hawaii and this home was perfect. Close to everything! Beautiful home, fantastic view! My daughter did Instacart from Costco and Safeway! Everything was perfect! Also the Manta Rays were quite the experience! You must go and see them yourselves! Many thanks to Jon and Jackie! They were the perfect hosts.

We didn’t want to leave! It was everything we wanted and needed. The view from the lanai is breath taking. The house was clean and well-kept. The only complaint we had was that our trip was too short. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Hopefully we will be back soon.

This house was impeccably clean, extremely organized, and well stocked. It had everything we needed. Jon and Jackie were great and very easy to contact with any questions we had. The house is beautiful! Wonderful outdoor spaces and such a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. It’s in a perfect location to get to all the highlights on the Kona side of the island. This was a family vacation with 8 of us staying in the house, plenty of space for everyone and great common areas for all of us to get together for meals. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in this area of Hawaii.

The house was perfect! It had everything we needed. Very well-stocked and well maintained. View was spectacular. Location could not have been better - 10 min from most of our activities: snorkeling, surfing, ATV riding, beaches. Luau. Jon and Jackie were great hosts-very responsive every time we had a question and went out of their way with helpful suggestions about things to do. We stayed with our adult children and their SOs (all in their early 20s) and it was the perfect place to hang out together but also retreat to their own rooms when they wanted. Everyone had an excellent time. Highly recommend!!

June 2023
Beautiful well stocked house, beautiful view, and the best hosts you could wish for all contributed to an absolutely wonderful stay in Kona. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed reserving this property for their stay in paradise. One last mahalo to Jon and Jackie!

My family and I recently stayed at Jon and Jackie's amazing Hawaiian vacation house and it was everything we could have asked for and more! The house was spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for our family of seven. The location was perfect - nestled in a quiet neighborhood just a short drive from some of the island's best beaches and attractions. We loved being able to explore everything the Big Island had to offer, then come back to the peaceful oasis of our vacation house. One of the highlights of our stay was the breathtaking view from the house. We woke up every day to the sight of the ocean and ended each day with a gorgeous sunset. It was truly a sight to behold and made our vacation all the more memorable. The house itself was beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a full kitchen and plenty of linens and towels. We especially loved the outdoor living area and pool, where we could relax and enjoy the gorgeous Hawaiian weather. One of the best parts of our stay was our dealings with Jon and Jackie, the property owners, who went above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful time. They were always available to answer any questions we had and provided us with great recommendations for local activities and restaurants. Overall, we had an incredible vacation at this Kona vacation house and would highly recommend it to any family looking for a comfortable and convenient home base with a stunning view for their Hawaii adventure.

This was a terrific trip for our family. We travelled with our 9 month old son and my brother and his wife with their 3 year old daughter. The house had everything we needed. Great set up for the family and fantastic views as advertised. Pool was also an excellent asset to have. No complaints at all on our end. Jon and Jackie were excellent hosts and made the travel experience that much better. Would certainly look at this place again if returning to the island. Thanks!

The property is beautiful and it is well stocked for fun at the beach. The owners are very easy to communicate with and make sure there are no issues with check in. The view is gorgeous and we had our coffee on the balcony every morning. The location of perfect. Everything is under 12” away. The worst part was leaving for home

We came for a 50th birthday celebration with friends and family. The house was great! We had everything we needed and had an amazing time. Jackie and Jon are wonderful hosts and I hope to come back soon!

November 2022
Overall the stay was good. The house was clean and user friendly. There is only AC and it is in the mater bedroom. Because of the breeze it is bearable. As everyone else has noted the views are excellent. Not far from restaurants and shopping. One of the area neighbors was a bit on the rude side. I was standing out front waiting on my family and was stared down. Did not bother me just kept moving on. If you need ADA access look elsewhere it would be a challenge for getting in and out of the house from the drive way. Several personal vehicles parked at the house as well. Again, overall great house, great stay and good hospitality. My family was quite pleased with the house.

My Family and I booked a trip with the grandparents and couldn’t be more pleased with the house, amnesties and location near Kona. The house was comfortable with a stunning view and the hosts were lovely to deal with. The few maintenance items were dealt with swiftly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to come back!

The views from the house were absolutely spectacular! The house was a wonderful base camp for all our excursions and it was close to everything we needed. The uniquely styled rooms, balcony & swimming pool accommodated our family (old and young) very well. Jon and Jackie were incredibly gracious hosts that communicated well before, during and after the trip. They made sure we had all we needed and were very helpful with activity & dining suggestions. This is a 6 star home!! We hope to stay here again when we return!

We had an amazing time at this house. The views of the sunset are incredible, so much so that we tried to be at home every evening to see it. House was very spacious and in a quiet neighborhood and in a good location for day excursions. The house has great locations to hang out with friends inside and outside on upper and lower decks. House was very clean, and kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The owners were very helpful and responsive. We were so sad to leave!

This was the second house we stayed at on the island. The other house was a bit newer but this one was just as nice. We really loved the pool, views and location of this house. Neighbors here were a lot better than the neighbors at our first house too. You will never get over the views from the back of the house. Watched the sunset while in the pool on the last day was the best thing ever! Hosts were very helpful and willing to make sure we were always having a great time!

Carla K.

Lovely relaxing house with plenty of room to spread out. Great kitchen, we cooked almost every night so as not to miss the amazing sunset view from the lanai! The pool was great to come back to after adventures. Owners have thought of almost everything: coolers, beach chairs, binoculars, guide books etc and are very responsive if you run into any issues. A wonderful experience from start to finish!

This home was absolutely perfect for our family group of eight, ranging in age from 5 to 69. The property is well maintained, beautifully furnished and every need anticipated for a fun Hawaii vacation. Jackie & Jon are great communicators promptly replying to our requests. We hope to stay at this property again in future Kona visits.

Great house to experience the Big Island. We had three generations of family from three different states come together. There was lots of room to enjoy each other's company. The location was excellent with a beautiful sunset each evening. We found the location to be very convenient. We would definitely recommend it to others.

Kathy K.

The home was a beautiful place to stay and well appointed. We spent many mornings and evenings on the balcony overlooking the panoramic view. We preferred the quiet neighborhood to rentals offered in the large resorts. The property was a perfect home base and close to all the sights we visited.

Marcy B.

Beautiful, sparkling clean and comfortable oasis with everything you need for a visit to the big island. We especially appreciated the beach chairs, boogie birds, and snorkel gear. Nice, quiet neighborhood (great for walking) overlooking the ocean. Perfect for our family. Best of all are the unbelievable sunsets from the Lanai or any room in the house. Thank you for providing a magical stay in Kona!

This reunion trip of friends was successful in part to this beautiful home! With space for everyone and a gorgeous kitchen we never felt crowded or in need of anything. We prepared many memorable meals and enjoyed the views of the ocean. The neighborhood was lovely and we were central to all the activities we had planned. Communication from owners was stellar and we felt well taken care of. I hope we can return again for another reunion!

April 2022
The house was exactly as listed. Everything was immaculate and the house was fully stocked with all the conveniences of home. Jackie and Jon were very welcoming and accommodating.

Great views and an excellent home base for our active vacation. Staying in Kailua Kona was perfect for visiting the North coast as well as getting to Volcanoes as well as the cloud forest. The home had everything we needed from spices to beach chairs. Can't go wrong here.

This property worked out perfectly for our family of 2 parents and 3 20's year olds. We appreciated the kitchen stocked with every cooking item we needed and the space to spread out on both floors. Every morning we would have coffee and breakfast on the lanai looking out over the ocean and we'd watch the sunset there every night. Having so many bathrooms was helpful for our group and the beds were comfortable. The house has lots of regular towels, beach towels, beach toys, chairs, etc. Very nice!

Truly exceptional! Everything we could possibly need while on our thrice-postponed large family vacation in paradise (linens, towels, beach and ocean equipment, kitchen-wear, coolers, etc). Rented this home and one next door for our large group of 14. Adjoining gate in pool areas made mingling easy. Sweeping ocean views, comfortable accommodations all around set us up for a great stay. Located in a quiet neighborhood, respecting noise levels is expected - hope the Marco Polo games weren't too annoying!

November 2021
This is a beautiful property located in a very central location in Kona. Close to beaches, shopping, food, etc. Very spacious and amazing views. Great place to sit and view the sunset if the sky is clear. Pool is clean and big. Kitchen is great and they have a lot of items to borrow for a day at the beach. all four rooms are big and comfortable. This is located in Kona so it's about 90-120 minute drive to get to other locations in the Island so plan your day accordingly.

This place is amazing.... The view from the Lana is breathtaking both morning and evening! We even caught a complete double rainbow....all within our line of sight from the deck. The pool and pool deck were an absolute blast, providing entertainment and enjoyment for those days we decided not to go out at all. The spacious kitchen and grill provided us an awesome way to eat from home when we wanted. We grilled steak and fish 3 nights and ate take-out on the Lanai 3 nights and also hit a couple great restaurants...Umeke's and Fish Hopper. But what made this place worth 10 stars are the owners! Jackie and Jon were so responsive and attentive to our needs before and during the stay. My family literally want to rent this place for a month in the next few years! In short, this place has ruined us for going anywhere else....nothing can compare to the luxury, location, view, convenience, value, and service that this place offers!

Property was very clean and the layout was perfect. Exactly as pictured in listing. Pool was lovely added bonus! Family room in basement is in bedroom, but worked fine for our group. 3 bathrooms was nice when everyone was getting ready in the morning. Had a code for ease at check-in/check-out. Lots of communication from owners. Friendly, helpful, thoughtful. Lanai was our favorite part of the house...large and great views of the sea. Highly recommend. Would definitely stay again on a future trip!

We have rented from numerous houses and this by far is one of the best!!! From prior to check in to the time we checked out everything was perfect - the house was clean and had all amenities as advertised - the hosts thought of everything! A true vacation experience !!!

Wonderful vacation rental right in the heart of the Kailua-Kona area. Our family explored the Big island with so many beaches so close to visit. Great snorkeling beach was just minutes away; it was convenient to have beach chairs and snorkel gear to borrow. We enjoyed quality time on the lanai and amazing sunsets nightly. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make ourselves at home. Jackie, the owner was an attentive host, ensuring we had directions and making sure we had everything we needed during our stay.

Kari W.

This home was everything. Immaculate, well furnished, and it had everything needed for the comforts of home. We have been to the Big Island multiple times, so this time was more about relaxing than trying to see everything. The view, pool, sunrises, sunsets, and quiet neighborhood made it seem like we never needed to even leave. It was a holiday weekend, so very busy downtown Kona and at the beaches. We found it more enjoyable to just relax at the pool, cook our own meals, and enjoy the peace, quiet, and privacy of the neighborhood. Perfection!

We enjoyed the beautiful ocean views and the cool breeze at this home. We were traveling with our adult son and my parents in their mid 70s. It was nice that my parents had the whole bottom level to theirselves! We were allowed to check in early which was really nice. We did a lot of snorkeling. Captain Cook monument is not to be missed! We did have an issue with the VRBO next door that was quite noisy a few nights. We reached out to the owners and they were quiet after that. The pool was awesome. The one recommendation I would have for the kitchen is to provide a French press for coffee.

From the moment we parked our rental car, we were excited and amazed at our good fortune in finding this house! It is beautiful, inside and out, and has everything one needs for a fabulous vacation! The pictures are very accurate, but they still don't capture the beauty of the property and surroundings. The lanai was my favorite place..whether drinking coffee, planning the day, eating dinner, napping, or watching the sunset. It was easy to get to the water, shops and highway. We used their beach towels, snorkels and water shoes. We also cooked breakfast a couple of times, finding everything we needed. It was very clean and in good taste. The owners take much care in ensuring a great stay. We did not want for anything. Well, except more time to enjoy this wonderful place. Thank you so much for a great place to relax and enjoy our vacation!

This is our second stay at Jon's house and it gets more wonderful every time (we booked for next year before we even left)! The house has everything you could possibly need on your stay, the furnishings are tasteful and modern and the view and pool are amazing. Our kids love to see the geckos in their familiar spots every day:-) We've stayed with our entire family of 9 and our immediate family of 5 and the house works perfectly in either scenario. Jon is a pleasure to deal with and always super attentive and helpful with any questions we have. Highly, highly recommended as a perfect base if you are visiting the Big Island:-)

We spent 10 days in the house with our adult children and 2 granddaughters. It worked out perfect! The pool was definitely a big bonus for the kids and gave the adults someplace to hang out as well. The house is exactly as shown in the photos and had everything we needed. The owners were super to work with and we really appreciated their consideration. Hope we can come back some day so.

January 2014
Read everyone's 5 star reviews and multiply them by 10. We spent Christmas week at this house and it was perfect. My wife and I, our two adult kids and her dad - all totally enjoyed staying here. The only problem we had was that it was so comfortable and the views so great that we didn't want to go anywhere else. We had to kind of force ourselves to go out and be tourists. And the pool is just a super bonus. Owners = very concerned you have a great time. It's just all great.

I have seen pictures and read the reviews, when searching for a house. The pictures are accurate but the house is so much more in person!! The Ocean view from the Lanai, or really any spot in the house, is absolutely AMAZING!!! When I come back( because I definitely plan on coming back) I will definitely be staying here again. My family and I, travel a lot. We have rented our fair share of houses. Jon by far is the best landlord that I have ever rented from. He answers emails punctually and efficiently. He went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you Jon, for the use of your beautiful house.

A perfect vacation! We rented this home last week and can't stop talking about it. The views are just stunning and the house had everything you could possibly need. They had all the beach supplies like boogie boards, snorkel equipment, beach towles, and beach chairs. The house was immaculate and in a great neighborhood. It was fantastic to wake up every morning and sit out on the lanai with a cup of coffee and look out over the ocean and feel the breeze. Paradise. I would highly recommend this home to anyone.

The house is even better than the pictures! Lots of space, amenities, and perfect location. The large deck offers amazing views of the city & ocean. Despite the fact that it is in a neighborhood, the peaceful silence at night would make you believe you're in the middle of nowhere. Would definitely stay here again!

We had an amazing time at this house! It's absolutely gorgeous and had everything we needed and more! Most importantly it was soooo great working with Jon! He was extremely responsive and very easy to work with. Next time we are in the islands, we'll be staying here again!!

This beautiful house was a real find! Our family of 7, including 3 generations, spent a wonderful week here. The house itself is lovely, and the view amazing! The house is just a few minutes drive to the town of Kona, and far enough away to be out of the evacuation zone—which we were very grateful for during the 2012 tsunami. Although Kona was undamaged, evacuation was called. Because we had chosen this house, we were completely undisturbed. The house and grounds are beautifully maintained, the furniture inside and out comfortable and very attractive. The house was so spacious that our family had plenty of opportunity to have quiet times, as well as the space to gather on the lanais (upstairs and down) and in the living and dining rooms. It was a pleasure to sit on the lanai with our morning coffee, savor the gorgeous view and enjoy family time. The pool area is furnished with many chaises and chairs—more than we ever used. The quantity and variety of pool and ocean toys/equipment provided my family with so many good times. The kitchen contained all the dishes/glasses/pans/equipment for our family to enjoy meals together—even water bottles for our excursions. Jon, the owner, was extremely helpful and courteous, and a pleasure to work with. We would absolutely return with our family—and maybe even just the two of us!
