  • Such a wonderful guest experience at Jerry and Alice's Kona Magic Sands place...we did not want our stay to end! Everything you need for a wonderful vacation is included - from a comfortable bed, all kitchen utensils and appliances, very nice linens and towels and anything you would need for a day at the beach. It is hard to describe the views and sounds of the ocean...there were days we just opened the lanai and spent most of the day enjoying the scenery (and serenity). And after a day of touring, it was so nice to come back and just enjoy the ocean, pool and making dinner in their well-equipped kitchen. We would actually look forward to returning each afternoon/evening to enjoy their place and the atmosphere. Jerry and Alice are such sincere and caring hosts... they truly want guests to enjoy their experience. There were tropical fresh flowers waiting for us as well as bananas from their own tree! We were sad when our stay ended and hope to be guests again! A wonderful, fabulous experience! Mahalo Jerry and Alice for sharing your paradise with us!

    Shannon2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing views and place. We saw whales, dolphins, fish, and turtles all from our condo! Jerry and Alice were some of the nicest people Ive ever met, very accomodating and definitely went above and beyond. We are definitely hoping to come back and stay here again.

    Kelsey2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was very relaxing to hear the constant splashing of the waves, which sent us to sleep immediately! The Magic Sands restaurant was excellent, convenient and fun. Great to have an allocated parking space.

    Sharon2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Jerry & Alice are the kind of hosts that you remember for years, their kindness and warm communication, they feel like friends rather than hosts. We will never forget the roar of the waves, the breath taking sunsets and the whales and dolphins daily transiting out front. 🐳🌊 🌅

    Darrell2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Jerry and Alice's condo. The views were magnificent - a perfect place to take in an ocean sunset. Was nice to be able to lie in bed and hear the sound of the waves. The location was great too, right next to a nice beach and an easy drive to any other Kona destination. Jerry and Alice were great hosts and provided all the info we needed for our trip along with plenty of suggestions for places to eat and things to do. We would love to stay at their place again.

    David2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jerry and Alice are wonderful hosts and their condo is amazing. I would definitely come back here.

    Vinit2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Right next to Magic Sands Beach. Perfect location. We loved hearing the waves lap up on the shore each night. Perfect sea breeze blows into the apartment each day. Jerry and Alice were kind and easy to interact with. Highly recommend!

    Kailua-Kona, HI, United States

    We are a nicely appointed condo in the heart of Old Kona Town. We are across from the Hulie'e Palace and only a couple of hundred feet from the ocean. There are restaurants, galleries, Kona coffee houses and exotic shopping right out our doors. Tax #: W70176163-01 Price includes state taxes.
    This beautiful condo was just fully and expertly remodeled and furnished. It is new inside with sophisticated Polynesian accents. We are in the heart of downtown Kona on the island of Hawaii or "The Big Island". We overlook the oldest church in Hawaii, Mokuaikaua Church, and the Hulihee Royal Palace in downtown Kona. We are steps away from the pier, restaurants and special activities. This is the heart of the old village of Kona, literally in the back yard of the Hulihee Palace. We have one bedroom one bath with large lanai and a new kitchen, fully stocked with all the necessary dishes. Although we are in the core and center of the town, we are quiet because of the church as our closest neighbor. We are on the quiet side of our building orientated toward the church grounds. We have covered and secured parking in a garage and elevators from the parking area. Cable, high-speed internet and a new washer/dryer is included. This is truly a wonderful property unique because of its setting. Our building includes a wonderful pool and barbecue decks which overlook the busy Ali'i Drive and the Pacific Ocean. Step out of the parking garage and you are in the middle of our restaurant and shopping area. Prices include Hawaii tax of 13.42%! This is important when comparing prices because many people add it onto the posted price. WE ARE NON-SMOKING!
    I just love living in downtown Kona. We are on the quiet end of the "strip" here along the oceanfront at Kailua Bay. It is quiet in our neighborhood soon after dark. Just a few blocks down along the waterfront are our nightclubs and late-night restaurants with daily live music. It really is a special place, very calm with many shopping, dining and night club options.
  • This unit has everything. Clean and well looked after. It’s in the heart of downtown Kona. Easy to walk the street for local shopping and restaurants. Ed went out of his way to get us special beach chairs that we asked for. We would come back to this unit.

    Caroline2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The access was simple, Edward always responded to texts and questions fast, and the area is right by the beach and a bunch of shops! Such a cool area with lots to do, right on the ocean. Will definitely be coming back!

    Gabrielle2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This unit is great...an ideal price in an ideal location. It was convenient to get to places, a wonderful unit layout, and an important aspect of our two weeks on the Big Island.

    Jill2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Edward was such a great host for us! We only stayed with him one night. Our flight got in late, but he was still responsive when we messaged him. He was even willing to work with us on our check out time so we could enjoy our day in Kona without having to lug our bags around with us. The place was stylishly decorated, comfortable, impeccably clean and easy to access. Thank you Edward for a wonderful stay!

    Diana2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This clean unit is in a quiet location that it very close to the waterfront as well as many shops and stores. It was comfortably furnished inside as well as on the lanai. Edward has stocked his place with many thoughtful items and was quick to respond to our questions. The underground garage parking was very convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Sharon2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and great host. After I realized that I had booked the wrong night he set me up with another of his properties at a discounted rate.

    John2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a great location right next to great restaurants and shopping yet quiet.

    Stephanie2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Located very close to everything downtown. Clean, well furnished and comfortable. You can't go wrong staying here while in Kona.

    Aloha and Mahalo for visiting my listing. "Pl.note that I don't have included the Transient /Ge tax ( 14.50%) in my price since it would reflect in the fee you pay to airbnb. I will collect it upon arrival." This place is nesteld on the slope of Hualalei mountain inmidst of coffee farms, from this cooler elevation (1200ft.) it is only 15 min./7 miles to Kailua -Kona, the nearest Beaches and Supermarket.
    This downstair apartment is fully private with private entrance, bedroom has a queen bed, bathroom with bathtub/shower, walk-in closet. Lanai ( Porch) with view. Kitchenette has a fridge, microwave, toaster oven, electric skillet and electric pot, toaster, coffee maker, electric water kettle, rice cocker and a blender. Linen, towels and beach towels are provided. Free wireless internet, use of BBQ, car port. At 1200 elevation it is nice to come home from a day of activities at the beach to a cooler climate and quiet neighborhood to relax and watch the sunset from the lanai with view.
    It is located in the midst of the famous Kona Coffee region, just 1 min. north from old charming Holualoa town with many Art Gallerys, a grocerie store, post office, coffee shop, and a wonderful outdoor restaurante (slow food). In just 12 min. ( or 7miles) you are in Kailua Kona town or at the nearest beaches.
  • The apartment is perfect! It is very well equipped, clean and offers a very nice view to watch sunsets. We enjoyed the stay very much and can just recommend it!

    Melina2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet space a little away from Holualoa Town, a large site with lots of fruit trees and trees. There is a two-story house in that space. The second floor is the host house and the first floor is the guest house. There are many similar homes around the property, in a quiet, relaxed and lovely area away from the hustle and bustle. Located at the foot of Mount Faralai and away from the sea, it is not too hot and cool. It's a bit cool in the morning and evening, so it's a good idea to have long sleeves. Rooms are clean and well cleaned. Cooking utensils are available, and there are rice cookers, microwave ovens, ovens, electric pots, hot plates, toasters, coffee makers, etc., so you can cook yourself without any problems. Since there is also a coffee mill, you can grind the purchased Kona coffee beans and drink it immediately. There is also a cartridge type water purifier, so there is no need to buy water. In addition, there are a lot of beach gear, and beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler boxes, snorkels, cool bottles, etc. were handy. The view from Lanai is a lot of trees underneath, the town of Kailua-Kona and the vast sea far away. Every day I spent watching beautiful sunsets. The lanai is large, so you can eat at the table or relax on the sofa. Rent-a-car is essential, but it is about 15 to 20 minutes drive to Kailua Kona, Keauhou shopping center and beach. Every day I went to KTA, Safeway, Target, Walmart and Kahaluu Beach. Check-in and check-out were easy, and the host lived on the second floor, so there was no need to receive or hand over the keys, just putting the keys on the table. The host woman is very kind and will answer me politely if I have anything, and I'm on the second floor so I can go to listen immediately. It keeps your private well, so you will rarely meet and help you only when you need it. I think it is the best location to spend your time on the Big Island slowly and comfortably, but I think it is a good distance for those who are actively moving to Hilo, Volcano, Mauna Kea, North Kona and many beaches, I went many times during my stay. Especially in the middle of the Kona coffee cultivation area, you can easily go around the coffee plantation everywhere. I stayed for about 3 weeks, but anyway, I found the location, environment, room and host to be satisfactory.

    Hiroshi2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Karoline and her dog Hano are lovely hosts and her place was just perfect for our stay on the big island! Karoline has a beautiful house and guest apartment. Everything was sparkling clean and decorated in a cozy hawaiian style. We cooked a lot and were genuinely surprised by how good the kitchen devices (mixer, pans etc.) are! The whole apartment is very well thought through and Karoline goes above and beyond to ensure that her guests enjoy their stay. She even provided us with fresh fruits from her own garden! She also makes her own soapes and pays special attention to the environment and holding a sustainable houshold. Hano is the cutest, a very friendly, goofy and even a little shy doggo that one cannot help but love. We also loved the view from the apartment. One can see the ocean and watch the most amazing sunsets whilest sipping on a cold Big Wave or Longboard. So, if you get the chance stay here and enjoy this beautiful island from the very best airbnb.

    Rahel2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was wonderful place She had everything what we need . We wish we want back to there for month to stay . Thank you

    Jennie2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacularly natural, lush surroundings.. beautiful garden, flowers fruit and coffee. A delightful place to stay where everything is thoughtfully provided for you.

    Mark2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Karoline’s place was warm and cozy as described. It has a neat view of the ocean, and the property itself is surrounded by lush trees. The house was stocked with amazing coffee beans, which my husband really enjoyed having. Karoline’s dog, Hano, was a cool hang out in the mornings. The place is conveniently located to Kona and other beaches (about 15-20mins drive). Highly recommend it.

    Rasika2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Karolines house is very charming and well kept in every detail, and with a beautiful view over the garden and to the ocean. Peaceful area and close to a nice little village.

    Grete2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you are going to the big island, want a spectacular view, comfortable stay, and a wonderful host than we recommend this cozy magnificent spot overlooking Kona. We will never forget our trip and appreciated every second of our time here. Thank you Karoline 🌺

  • Had a great time at Marc and Penny's place. They even invited me for a drink and it was nice to share stories!

    Marc-André2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Marc's place was awesome! Simple, clean, decorated with style. Within walking distance to restaurants and bar. Will definitely stay here again next time.

    Tan2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Kona Oasis is amazing! Cute space with 1 bed and a bathroom, outdoor kitchen and dining space surrounded by adorable geckos. You will spend the whole trip outside, or inside with your windows open. Walking distance from everything in Kailua Kona - including beaches, restaurants, shopping. Marc is a awesome, hospitable, and super nice. He has tons of local knowledge and made great recommendations.

    Jordan2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Marc’s place has great values for it’s price. The room is clean and comfortable with all necessities equipped. What satisfies me most is its private bathroom. It’s super convenient you don’t share bathroom with others. Moreover, you can walk to the supermarket and restaurant. Anyway, I recommend Marc’s place if you’re looking for the budget accommodation in Kona.

    RongRong2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • A great clean spot with full bathroom and an outdoor kitchen nook within easy walking distance to town and the water. Super friendly hosts will make you feel very welcome and yet give you total privacy

  • This airbnb is absolutely the best airbnb in the Big Island, The over view of the whole Kona and beach from this house will over your imagination. The host has given me many useful informations which helped me spend a better vacation on Big Island.

    Zheng2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the fantastic view and the "outdoor living" at Steve's place! So much that it made it hard to leave there to do our planned vacation activities. The unit was very clean, comfortable and had plenty of storage. Communication with Steve was quick and easy. Highly recommend this Airbnb!

    Betty2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • The location of this home is amazing! It is off the main road, and it is so quiet and peaceful up here. The hosts have some stuff available to use (snorkel, beach chairs, etc), which we were very thankful for. Unit is super clean, and I loved the giant shower. The view is the best- it was wonderful to wake up to it in the mornings. I loved it!

    Lisa2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Steve was a wonderful host and we enjoyed our stay very much. Very peaceful setting and gorgeous views.

    Julie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot rave enough about this place. It’s amazing and the views are unbelievable. You’re gonna want to stop to the grocery store on your way up, because once you’re here you won’t want to leave. Sleeping with a fan and the screen door open was just unbelievable. Perfect temperature. And breathtaking views.

    Chelsea2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Positively beautiful. A really unique find. Watching the sunset by the pool felt like it added years to my life.

    Corey2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was a fun place to stay. Typically Hawaiian with an outdoor kitchen and total access to the outside. The shower was huge and there were two sinks and plenty of room. There was a walk-in closet with ample shelves and hanger space. The panoramic view was spectacular up about 1500 ft elevation. You can see the old airport on the right to the Sheraton hotel on the left and the entire Pacific Ocean looking west. The infinity pool is a nice touch. Sunset and dinner on the Lanai were something to look forward to each day. The only criticism we would have was a lack of hot water in the kitchen area to wash dishes. Everything else was great.

Location a "10" just steps to ocean, eats, pubs, stores, markets. FREE parking. Use this link to get $55 off https://www.airbnb.com/c/nday2?currency=USD
    Aloha! We are NOT affected by the recent Volcano activity, we are 98 miles from the Volcano on the opposite side of the island with blue skies, ocean breezes, and beaches to explore. If you are looking for a clean contemporary 400 sq ft studio condo in the heart of downtown Kona where a single person can be alone but feel welcome or a couple may want to enjoy each other's company then this AirBnB Slice of Aloha is for you! Our location is a "10" and our price per night is lower than many of the local condos and hotels including the Marriott Courtyard, Sharaton, or Holiday Inn and in an even better prime location. The small condo is a very clean unit with a lot of aloha! The location in the heart of historic downtown Kailua-Kona & you can walk to everything! We are Non- smoking, pet-free, & CLEAN 400 sq ft studio condo. My condo sits off of Alii Drive between Lava Java and Bubba Gumps- again you can WALK TO EVERYTHING in downtown Kona. The property has a pool, jacuzzi, BBQ and beautiful grounds that represent the best of Hawaii with a small sunset beach across the street. Unit has a small kitchenette that includes a full sized new refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, blender, rice maker and microwave and very basic eating utensils- plates, bowls, glasses, mugs, cutlery. 1 Queen bed sleeps 2. Flat screen HD TV and Air Conditioning too! The small lanai that overlooks the pool and jacuzzi and is a lovely place for some Kona coffee or island drinks. Quiet unit on top 3rd floor/walk up. Internet available in the unit. On-site FREE parking available although space may be limited after 6 PM so grab your spot early- there is overflow parking available too for $5 a day. Public coin operated washer dryer on site $3 for a wash and dry. Restaurants, bars, and small sunset beach just within minutes from your doorstep along with the weekly Farmer's Market. No smoking condo complex is a unique property that really has "old Hawaii" flavor and it is in downtown Kona on Alii Drive. You are right in the downtown area and steps from beautiful water views, sunsets, and nightlife, but my unit is quiet and secluded from any noise. There are 100 individually owned units in the complex in (6) 3-story buildings. Guests, part & full time residents easily mingle in the common areas and many friendships are made. The best part of the property is its grounds- boasting of dozens of native plants and soon to be a very very small botanical garden. My unit is kept clean and updated. All furnishings are Hawaiian contemporary and have much aloha. I live onsite about 4 months a year and I have rented out my condo since 2004 and have enjoyed sharing Kona with many like minded travelers. My friend and fellow owner Ellen cleans and manages my unit when I am offsite and the front desk staff will check you in, get you a key card, and a parking pass. You are in very good hands. At the start of your stay you will be provided with paper towels, a small dish soap, a cleaning sponge and dish towel, 2 rolls of toilet paper, shower soap, clean linens and towels. These amenities are NOT replenished during your stay and the guest will need to buy products beyond the supplied inventory. If 1-2 people staying 2-3 nights, the supply should be adequate. Condo is cleaned ONLY at departure. I bought the studio in 2004 when I was an Ironman athlete and trained 3 months out of the year on the Big Island; I raced several Ironman World Championships in Kona. I later became a USA team cyclist and today I ride for fun. Kona is my home away from home and is a pretty special place for me and it is fantastic to share a part of Hawaii with so many travelers. We provide a nice clean travel option to budget minded travelers. I hope to meet you through Airbnb if you choose my place but either way enjoy Kona and the Big I and its beaches, surf, (URL HIDDEN) is a spectacular island! With much Aloha, Nev
    Walking to everything in downtown Kona including coffee, markets, pubs, restaurants, shopping, day spas etc. The Islander has it's own small beach across the street but it is not a great swim beach at all, but you can view sunset and turtles with a keen eye. Best swim beach in walking distance (5 minutes) is at Kona Pier in front of the King Kam (Courtyard) hotel. Paddle board and water sports equipment rentals available there. I go there daily when on island for a refreshing dip. You can also swim the Ironman course from the Kona Pier and many like minded swimmers going out between 6AM and 8 AM. The neighborhood is VERY safe for Hawaii and everybody walks around and feels the aloha spirit in downtown Kona.
  • Staying at Nev's place really put us right into vacation mode. We really enjoyed her beautiful space!

    Katelyn2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay! The location is amazing!! Just off the beach, and a short walk to restaurants and shops!! The decor is very quaint, and the space was very clean. Nev is a super hospitable host and offered an early check. The pool is small but refreshing. Loved our stay. Thank you! Lee and Kristi

    Kristi2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and place to stay in Kona, wish I had booked it longer

    Melissa2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Nev's place is a very good choice! Very clean and the aircon inside the room helps so much after being outside the whole day, Shops, bars and restaurants are all walking distance from the condo which is really nice. And every time I have to ask something, Nev always replies back and communicate to us instantly, she really know where good places to go! I'm glad I chooses her place for my boyfriend and I vacation in Hawaii!

    Jaztine2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The room is lovely, decorated in Hawaiian style and the grounds are a lush Paradise right in downtown Kona. A gem!

    Kathy Lee2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A fabulous older style apartment in the historic centre of Kona. Ideally located... close to the waterfront, shops, bars and cafes. Had everything we needed for our 3night stay. Nev was really easy to communicate with. Any questions we had were very quickly responded to. Prior to checkin we were given very clear and detailed directions on location, parking and check in, which were extremely helpful given that the location is in a busy part of town. The checkin process itself was extremely easy. The lady on the front desk was absolutely delightful and made everything very simple. Would definitely recommend. Thankyou Nev for a wonderful stay.

    Tracey2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nev’s place was truly wonderful! Location was excellent and we loved to be able to relax on the lanai to have our coffee in the morning while we planned our day and of course to end our evening! Also all of the staff were wonderful and the grounds around the condos were beautiful!

    Linda2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot for a couple visiting Kona. Pool and jacuzzi on-site, walkable to the main stretch of shops and restaurants in town. Check-in was smooth and easy, and we had everything we needed in the unit.

    Just a few blocks from the ocean and beach parks. Separate apartment on the lower level of our personal home. Discounts for stays of longer than 6 nights, and monthly discounts. The price shown in the reservation request should reflect the discount when applicable. New reservations made after 12/22/19 for 2020- Hawaii tax included in the final Airbnb charge.

    This conveniently located, clean, peaceful self-catering apartment is on the lower level of our house. It is just a few blocks from world class snorkeling, swimming, surfing and boogie boarding in the heart of the White Sands Beach area off of Ali`i Drive. The ground floor separate apartment with private entrance and designated off-street parking consists of a bedroom with comfortable queen sized bed, living area with full and twin size (child size) futon, full eat in kitchen, spacious bathroom (shower but no tub) tropical decor and an outdoor deck for relaxing. There are ceiling fans in each room, but no AC. We find it comfortable most of the year, but you may not be use to tropical temperatures and humidity. Please consider this when selecting a place to stay. We are located on a quiet cul-de-sac, but there is some road noise from Alii Dr and the sound of the waves during high surf. We live upstairs and are usually up around 6am. We do our best to minimize any noise, but you may hear plumbing sounds, footsteps and normal household activities. If you are a late or light sleeper, our home may not be the best fit for you. We love the Big Island and look forward to sharing our knowledge with you. Amenities provided include: • Free high speed internet via wi-fi • Basic Cable TV • Keyless Lock • Full Kitchen – Fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, rice cooker • Pots & Pans • Cooking utensils • Dishes and cutlery • All linens provided • Gas BBQ Grill • Beach Chairs for 2 • Boogie Boards for 2 • Snorkel Gear for 2. Shared Washer/Dryer on request. If you have a 5th in your party, ask about our extra person fee. No Smoking Please- $200 Security/Cleaning deposit. This will be refunded if you leave the apartment clean and as you found it. For bookings made before 12/22/19 there is an additional charge of 14.962% for Hawaii Transient Accommodation Tax/GE (as noted in the listing at the time you booked) collected at arrival via cash or check USD or we can arrange payment prior to your arrival via the resolution center. For new bookings made after 12/22/19, the Hawaii GET and TAT tax are included in the final invoice.
    Located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood with easy access to local beaches and sightseeing. Walking distance to several beach parks and snorkel areas. 1.5 miles to Keauhou Shopping Center with a grocery store, drug store, restaurants, movie theater and shopping. Planning your trip- We recommend 7 to 10 days to experience most of the highlights of the Big Island. The Kona side has much to offer in the way of beaches, water sports, golfing and dining. It is about a 2-3 hour drive to the volcano area or Hilo and 1 hour drive up to the northern part of the island. While you can see all the areas from one location, we think splitting your stay between the east and west sides offers the best arrangement.
  • We felt very comfortable, the apartment was bigger than we expected and you could easily stay with two more persons. It’s nice and quiet, everything was very clean. A little damage was fixed right away by the owner. We didn’t want to leave and looking forward to come back some time :) Liz and Robert are great hosts. Mahalo :)

  • Our stay here was completely wonderful. The location is perfection and the suggestions of what to do were spot on! We enjoyed every second and are so happy we got to stay here. Way beyond our expectations.... thank you so much.

    Lorraine2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great quiet home one block up from Alii drive, the main strip in Kona. Walking distance to the beach or pack up and drive. Seems to be an active spot for joggers. Beautiful clear water. We especially loved two restaurants near by (a good walk but doable) The Rock and Hugo's. It's the same owners, restaurants side by side but different menus and price. Super super great location for a sun set and our favorite MaiTai. You need reservations for the Rock. You can feel the influx of travellers when a cruise ship shows up but being there for a couple of days you can avoid the main strip. For some great snorkelling visit Two Step park.

    Lucio2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place in a great location to explore the Kona side of the island. It is in a quiet neighborhood where the only noises are that of nature. Beautiful flowers and back gardens. Bed and futon were comfortable. Lots of amenities to enjoy your day at the beach and close to restaurants or excursions. Thanks Liz and Robert for everything!

    Melissa2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent outdoor space at property. Worth noting that swimming on the nearby coast could require foot ware because of rocks. Availability of snorkel equipment etc and body boards was welcome and overall our stay was a very relaxing experience.

    Richard2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great location close to beaches, local shopping center and downtown restaurant row. Quiet location, bird songs await you in the morning. Host were available when needed but provided privacy. Definitely would stay here again!

    Ric2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • It is beautiful, quiet, spacious, and comfortable. We had a really good time. Highly recommended!

    Xu2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great location-loved being able to walk to a great snorkeling beach and avoid the traffic of downtown Kona,and still be able to get there easily to enjoy the restaurants and other amenities. The outside lanai and gardens were very nice, with a good spot to wash off beach sand. Would stay there again for sure!

    Stay in this modern room in a shared guest wing of a stunning, open air house that is just 10 minutes to the beach and downtown. You will enter this unique home by a stone bridge over the koi pond before enjoying a beautiful pool, ocean views from the lanai, and laid back Hawaii living. A few things to note: -The room has 3 fans, but like most Hawaiian homes, no A/C. Summers, especially, are hot. Please keep this in mind when booking. -This is a room in a shared space, with 2 other guest rooms nearby. Living room and kitchen are shared. -Young kids live in the main part of the home.
    The Koi House is a home that echos relaxed way of life. It is an open air space with plants, a koi fish pond, natural and upcycled materials, and serene forest & ocean views. * The vibe is casual, communal and friendly. * I've worked hard to cultivate an eco-minded authentic space full of vintage textiles, natural accents, contemporary decor and a welcoming atmosphere that I enjoy sharing with guests and friends from all over the world.
    The neighborhood is quiet and suburban in style, while the house's setting at the edge of a nature reserve delivers rural privacy. Both the town and the beach are only 10 minutes away, and there are many fine snorkeling locations down south. A car is a necessity on the island and in this neighborhood.

    The neighborhood is very central to Kona town, but quiet and suburban in style. Our house sits at the edge of a nature reserve, so it feels rural and private. The location is really convenient- close to the highway that takes right into town within 10 min, close to Alii Dr. right along the ocean (by Magic Sands and Kahaluu Beach park), close to many snorkeling locations down south.

    Watch a spectacular sunset over the ocean from the comfort of this top-level apartment. This recently remodeled home features an incredible ocean view from the balcony (with dining area), private entry, eclectic furnishings and decor, bright pops of turquoise, and a backyard garden. Park in your own covered parking spot and the friendly host greets you and provides a top-rated level of service and amenities. During cleanings, we use clorox disinfectant which is certified to kill coronaviruses and our cleaners are very thorough.
    The Space: Tranquil Ohana in the Kona Sunset neighborhood in Kailua-Kona. Fantastic ocean views, quiet and peaceful, yet less than 10 minutes from the center of town and the beach, and 20 minutes to the Kona airport (KOA). "Ohana" means family in the Hawaiian language. Because so many families share homes in Hawaii, it has also come to mean private cottage or apartment attached to or near the main residence. Our Ohana suite is a secure, private, attached studio apartment sharing one wall, with full bath, kitchenette with fridge and everything needed for food preparation , and covered lanai (balcony) with uninterrupted ocean views. It has a private entrance, with a shared yard featuring a fairy garden, playhouse, and swings. The unit has a queen size bed, indoor sitting area, 2 outdoor sitting areas, and a full private bath with tub, shower and double sinks. Shampoo, soap, and a hairdryer are also provided. The kitchenette is equipped with a sink, mini fridge, microwave, toaster oven, induction stove (for heating the included pots and pans), basic cooking utensils, Keurig coffee maker (5 coffee pods provided), electric kettle, blender, drying rack, and table settings for 4. A shared propane BBQ grill is also available in the yard. You can let the trade winds and ceiling fan cool you off, or use the Air Conditioning. Our house is pet-free and allergy friendly with vinyl plank flooring and linens dried with hot air. We also provide beach gear including a beach blanket, snorkels, fins, picnic cooler, and a boogie board. A 46" Sony HDTV is available with an Apple TV (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Youtube) and Chromecast for access to all your photos or video content. Super-fast wifi and solar hot water as well! A queen air-bed and adult-sized cot are available in the unit. A child's high chair and pack-and-play portable crib are also available on request for no additional charge.
    The property is in a mature neighborhood of beautiful and architecturally interesting homes. The property is located on the Walua walking trail which is excellent for a morning or afternoon stroll, jog, or bike ride (2 bikes available upon request). Just a 10-minute drive from downtown or the beach, this elevation experiences pleasant temperatures all year long. Wake up to the chorus of the birds and a stunning ocean view.
  • What a great place! My husband and I stayed for 5 nights during our vacation and we couldn’t have been happier. The location in the Kona area was convenient, and the amenities within the apartment were perfect. It’s super cute, and they’ve thoughtfully made sure it includes everything you need, even things like beach towels, a small portable cooler for day trips, umbrellas, etc. The front deck has such a lovely view and the backyard was a nice surprise. We didn’t get to meet them but communication was great over Airbnb messages. I was a hit worried about the driveway and it is pretty steep, but our SUV rental handled it just fine if we drove carefully.

    Stephanie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This airbnb is very cute, sparkling clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, yet quiet and off the beaten path. We appreciated the use of beach gear, including towels, snorkeling gear, chairs, boogie boards, an umbrella and even a cooler with an ice pack. Chris was very attentive to any questions and usually got back to us within 10 minutes of posing a question.

    Elaine2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Sally2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was perfect! Chris made sure we had the pack n play and high chair for our 20 month old. The play area in the back was perfect for him! He napped and slept great with the black out curtains (so did we). All the extras were great too: the towels for the beach, the snorkel gear, & beach gear. I really enjoyed sitting out on the patio watching the ocean. We have already recommended this place to our friends!

    Whitney2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view. Great communication from host. Excellent stay.

    Brian2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Yunae2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay. Me and my aunt hung out over night because our main stay was in Hilo. We booked on Airbnb and checked in 45 minutes later. The view is spectacular day and night. I really enjoyed watching the moon hang over the ocean at night! The room is perfect! Literally!!!

    Watch Rain Fall Inside Your Home Into The Central Water Feature. Amazing Entry Across An Indoor Pond. Private Pool. Expansive Direct Ocean Views.
    Beautiful high-end home with views directly to the ocean below. Have your own private retreat within a secure, gated community in an expansive open home. Stay in perhaps one of the most unique homes in Hawaii where it rains into the house, filling the entry waterway. Walk under the copper rainfall screen, across the pond with seemingly floating carved rock steps. This home is all about celebrating the Hawaiian outdoors/indoors lifestyle. The living room and master bedrooms feature huge sliders opening up to the pool and hot tub area and astounding views of the ocean. Water features surround the home with waterfalls cascading into multiple coy ponds. Water is the reason you come to Hawaii, and the main reason to rent this home. You'll be surrounded by water from the moment you enter the home, from the entry pond, to the indoor rainfall feature, to the coy ponds, to pool and hot tub. The sounds of water envelop the home: the rain falls into the entry water feature, the waterfalls by the dining room aerate the multiple coy ponds, and the lava rock hot tub pours into the pool directly below it. Like many Hawaiian homes, this unit does not have air conditioning (with the exception of the Ohana). Most every window in the home is screened and opens up to let in the fresh breezes. All rooms have fans, and you can cool off in the pool any time. This home is about being outdoors when you are indoors. Open up the windows, turn on the water features, and enjoy the sounds and feel of nature while gazing across the pool to the ocean. You'll probably spend more time on the expansive covered lanai than anywhere else. Brand new high-end patio furniture, a stainless steel grill, an outdoor section couch, misters, and the pool and hot, make this the place to be. The study is detached from the main home, and provides a nice secluded area for members of your party that want more privacy. Attached to the garage, the studyis a great place to go cool off under the air conditioning, read a book, or watch some TV. Offering 2 twin beds, it's a great location for members of your group that are on a different schedule as they can come and go without disturbing the group in the main house. There is no bathroom in the study, so guests will need to use one of the 3.5 bathrooms in the main house. While we love children, this home's unique water features aren't conducive to small kids. There are multiple water features, some indoors, that are not childproof. There are doors that open directly to waterfalls and coy ponds without railings. And the pool and hot tub are accessed directly from the living room. Finally, there is a drop off from the back of the swimming pool adding to the beautiful melding of the pool and the ocean directly below. A waiver will be required, and we recommend children be at least 12 or older. Because the home is mostly open to the outside at all times, we are unable to accommodate smokers. No smoking is allowed in the home, on the patios or lanais, in or around the garage or on the lot itself. Smokers must be at least 250 ft from the home, completely off the property, and in the common area of the complex. This includes e-cigarettes and any product that produces smoke or vapor. There will be a $500 fine if the home smells of smoke or vapor on departure and if any cigarette butts or smoking paraphernalia are found on departure. Cancellation Policy: A cancellation more than 30 days prior to arrival will result in a cancellation fee equal to our credit card processing fee of 3%. Any cancellation less than 30 days prior to arrival will result in a 100% penalty.
    Moab is your gateway to adventure. Our famous national parks, Arches and Canyonlands, are just a short drive away. Hiking, Biking, Rafting, and Off-roading are all accessible from Moab.
  • This house is absolutely stunning with a priceless view! You will wake up to the waves washing over the lava rock in the distance as you look out over the ocean. The pool and spa is your private oasis to relax and be a step removed from the hustle and bustle of the resorts. The house is in a fully guarded, gated community making you feel as safe as can be and it is located in the perfect area within 10 minutes of everything you could want to do! Dustin is an amazing host - very responsive to all inquiries and will make sure your stay exceeds your expectations. I highly recommend this home and we will absolutely be back in the future.

  • A very spacious house in a quiet location, with 3 great sized bedrooms in the main house plus a useful 2 singles in the annex. The key feature is the outdoor living area and pool, which is beautifully designed and the sunset / sea views are absolutely unmatched. We spent all of our time using this area.

    David2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I stayed in this stunning Waterfall House. It was breathtaking. We loved every aspect of it and had such a wonderful stay and time! We cooked out and had such a amazing and comfortable stay that we’ll remember forever! We’ll be back! :D

  • It was great place and experience. All the ppl were very nice and helpful at the house. We had little Hot Water problem for the shower and bath since we have 8 ppl and couldn't have enough Hot water sometime, but other than that we had a lot of fun and really enjoyed it! I would love to come back there. Thank You!

    Bumpei2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is fantastic and walking in the front door to the open living space is so incredible; jaw-dropping! The location could not have been better, such a good view and only a 10 min drive to Kona. Plan on having a fun pool day! The pool was much larger than previous reviews had led me to believe but we were unfortunately unable to use the hot tub as it never got warm:( This property is beautiful and well worth the price.

    Jen2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful, peaceful sanctuary! We absolutely loved our time here. The views were spectacular, the pool and water features so serene, and the flow of the space very open. The overall decor was a bit dated, but for the value and overall experience and amenities, it was wonderful. Lots of extra thoughtful touches too! Highly recommend this home for a family or several couples traveling together.

  • I had a wonderful time staying at Kate & Will's place. It's very cozy, beautifully designed and had everything I needed. Just a short drive away from downtown Kona and beautiful beaches. Will was very nice, he met me in person and showed me around. Overall it was a great experience, can totally recommend staying at Kate & Will's when you're visiting Kona!

    Egor2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Will and Kate’s place was a true delight. The bed was comfortable and the spa bathtub was delightful. They are located a super short drive from excellent snorkeling and have provided everything you could think of for a day at the beach (chairs, umbrella, snorkels and fins, and boogie boards). I only wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend!!

  • This place is very sweet. It's a bit of old Hawaiian with updated and thoughtful touches. Their location is lovely: great garden, peaceful, and the lodging is ample. And Will, who greeted me, is very nice; clearly a bright and talented artist. I didn't get to meet Kate, but I did meet the two dogs, who were so sweet. It feels like "real Hawaii" here. If you want to be in this area, which is in close proximity to many offerings, this a great choice!

    Robyn2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Katie and Will’s place was the perfect space to unwind after a day of activities. The location could not be beat and they had everything you could want to relax.

    Katie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Kate and Will exemplify hospitality and genuinely care about you. The apartment is spacious, with a kitchenette, TV lounge area, and a sitting room flowing into the bedroom area. The bathroom has a spa which was welcome after a day of trekking and snorkelling. Lovely views to the ocean and from the other side, picturesque gardens. There are three outdoor seating options with the added bonus of having the Pups, Teddy and Daisy to greet you if you so wish. I found it easy to find the apartment, easy to cook and so central to access all the area has to offer.

    Sandra2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great airbnb with a real old Hawaii feel. We always enjoy staying here.

    Greg2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Will and Kate’s - very kind people, friendly dogs, fantastic amenities and a wonderful location. We hope to return someday.

    David2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • The suite is well-located in relation to Kona - not right in town (so quieter and more peaceful) but still not a long drive to points north and south, including all the neat sights and places to dine along Mamalahoa Highway. The home is also easy to find and not a long trek from the highway like a lot of homes like this. The suite itself is upstairs with a gorgeous view of sunsets, and is spacious and nicely decorated. The small kitchenette comes stocked with fresh coffee (very thoughtful). The hosts are kind and friendly, directions were very thorough, and the price was very reasonable. I was very pleased with the whole experience and would certainly stay again!

    There are many ocean view condos in Kona but only a few beach front. This is a rare find. This area was home to the king and there are many ancient ruins on the grounds. Enjoy the turtles on the beach and whales, dolphins and manta rays. Bedroom window is like being in an aquarium! My place is close to restaurants and dining, the beach, family-friendly activities, public transport, and nightlife. You’ll love my place because of the views, the people, the ambiance, and the location. No Pet's
    Our "Hale Honu" (turtle house) is a rare find in Kona. There are many ocean view condos in Kona but very few beach front properties. You can walk out the back door to your own semi-private beach and drop yourself in the sand. Watch the whales, dolphins and manta rays. Turtles find this beach a quiet and peaceful resting place so enjoy them from a distance as they sleep on the sand. A few minutes down the beach you will see native Hawaiian Petroglyphs and Heiau's. You will not have to leave the property to enjoy all the amazing culture. This is a two bedroom 2 bath home right on the water. Spare bedroom can be split into two twin beds. Look out over the grassy lawn from your lanai that previews the tropical shrubbery where your own path to the beach (with orange hibiscus flowers on each side) is only a few steps away. The beach is an oasis to put on reef walker shoes and explore the home of Hawaiian sea turtles or to spread out beach chairs or mats and share some first-class beach time with those you love. All sorts of tropical birds are attracted to the lush tropical growth in our location and will often wait for a treat just off the lanai. Enjoy your oceanfront location with seating for four at a large dining table with glass top in the shade of your covered lanai with overhead ceiling fan. Stretch out on the lounge if you are trying to add to that summer tan. Have a morning cup of Kona coffee with your breakfast that can be handed via a pass through window from the kitchen or in the evening; have a BBQ or your own prepared gourmet dinner with an incredible sunset for your backdrop. There is no better location in any restaurant in Kona. Located on world-famous Ali'i Drive the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club is a 4-star Oceanfront Resort located 4.5 miles south of Kailua-Kona town. This gated complex is just 1/8 mile away from the Keauhou Shopping Center, which has a grocery store, restaurants, shops, a bank, a post office and a cinema. Even better ,we are a 1/2 mile from one of the most popular snorkeling beaches in Hawaii - Kahalu'u State Park (also known as Turtle Beach). Your home away from home is a two story, two bed, two bath island home close to both the pool and ocean in your backyard. This home has been beautifully decorated with an elegant but homey quaint romantic cottage feel. It was recently remodeled to include: AC throughout, new appliances and everything you would need to call home and have a great vacation. Watch the sunset from the beach or your Lanai and enjoy the sunrise in your bed looking out over the water and waves. Enjoy all the attention to details for your full enjoyment to include high speed WiFi, iPhone speakers, Netflix and more.This is the perfect place for you to get away and enjoy all of what Kona has to offer. Make yourself at home. If you would be more comfortable with AC, it is available in all rooms for fee per day (recommended for May-October).
    This is a VERY quiet complex. You will love the new pool, tennis courts and access to the beaches. We love our neighbors and this feels like a home not a complex. You have one private parking spot next to the unit and direct beach front access.
  • Chris & Nancy's place was great, you really can't beat the location and views!!! The private community was user friendly and the tennis courts and pool area are well kept! The place is not large, but worked very well for two couples! We'll be back on our next visit to the Big Island! Highly recommend...

    Mark2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, really just right on the ocean. Also very comfy, clean and cozy space. Great space for relaxing after a long day of being out on the water!

    Kathy2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful ocean views and stylish townhome.

    Sheila2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ STARS all the way around! Can’t recommend this amazing true OCEANFRONT townhouse. From the lanai with a very comfortable place to eat your meals you are 25 feet from the ocean, with a beautiful sand beach a very short walk to the north. The place also has two beautiful brand new tennis courts (very high quality), that are lighted at night. As well, it has a newly redone very luxurious swimming pool suitable for small children as well as adults, in that it has a very shallow into the pool. One of the things I really liked about this unit is that the two bedrooms are upstairs and directly adjacent to each other (although buffered by a large closet allowing privacy) so if you have kids it would be very easy to watch them in this unit. Additionally another big plus for this unit is it there is a shower downstairs as well as one upstairs: the bathroom downstairs is not a half bath rather it is three-quarter bath with a newly remodeled shower. This unit appears to have been newly remodeled and has a brand new full-size washer dryer that worked very well. In addition the host has thought of just about everything you could want including ping pong balls and paddles for the ping-pong table adjacent to the swimming pool. They have also provided very high-quality beachtowels, Beach chairs, VIC Matt, a portable cooler, sufficient to go just about anywhere you want as well as boogie board snorkeling equipment etc. The parking spot is right next to the unit and the area has a security gate that was nice. This is the best location I’ve found, with terrific hosts.

    Ann2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nice House! Everthind is great!

    Jj2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved this place! It was in a quiet, gated community outside of busy Kona and was a great getaway from the hustle and bustle. The house itself is beautiful and you cannot beat the view from the upstairs bedroom.

    Amanda2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a great spot with many amenities. My group didn't get an opportunity to take advantage of all the amenities due to our scheduling, but had a great stay! The beds are one queen and two singles pushed together. Everything was clean and comfortable. It's also close to nearby restaurants and the grocery store.

    Sarah2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • The turtle house was perfect for our trip to the "big island". Amenities, location, view, everything was just great.

  • Great little spot to spend some time on the island. Loved sleeping with the doors cracked to listen to the waves all night and keep the place cool. Would stay again👍🏻

    Alex2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING view - it's the best to be able to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the ocean outside. The bed is comfortable and I liked the tropical chic decor. Perfect vacation rental!

    Natalie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and a good place for a couple to stay. I wouldn't have more than two people however, but it was perfect for us.

    Paul2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The location was just perfect! Slept like a baby with the sound of the waves. Had a lovely dinner at the restaurant next door. It was great and we would definitely get this unit back if we are in the Kona area again.

    Genevieve2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn't have chosen a better spot! We loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean right outside our door. The unit was centrally located to shops, restaurants and beaches. Everything was clean and tidy and we especially appreciated the snorkeling equipment and boogie boards provided. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Darla2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful spot! Right on the water watching and listening to the waves crash. Everything we needed was there! Loved the beach and pool supplies! Awesome restaurant next Magic Sands Grill and the Beach Shack! Kind and wonderful hosts! Thank you Mira!!!

    Krista2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Mira's place is a great home base for exploring Kona. We didn't end up spending much time in the unit itself - as you can imagine we had plenty of amazing beaches to explore! The highlight for us was definitely falling sleep to the sound of crashing waves. We had everything we needed and felt Mira's home was a great value.

    Alex2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location. Great oceanfront view. You can hear the waves & it’s so relaxing! Recommend

    The condo is five-star quality following a complete renovation. It has 3 bedrooms, all with A/C units, and 3 bathrooms. Kitchen and bath cabinets are cappuccino maple with elegant granite counters. Tile flooring completes downstairs rooms, lanai, and living area. The loft has the highest quality vinyl flooring. The condo has vaulted ceilings with panoramic ocean and golf course views. The complex has 3 pools, hot tubs, and two private tennis courts surrounded by lush tropical landscape.
    After a full remodel, our place is one of the highest quality units in all of Kona! The entire condo is light, bright, and spectacular inside with views from the lanai that are second to none. Both master bedrooms feature extremely comfortable full king beds with en-suite bathrooms that include showers and the third bedroom features two twin beds that are perfect for children or friends who would like to share a room. Dinner on the lanai is a special experience; overlooking tropical trees and native flowers, lava rock formations, a manicured golf course, and a stunning view of the majestic blue Pacific ocean! Turn on the ceiling fans, open the sliding glass doors with the screens closed, open the front door with the privacy screen closed, and let the soft and gentle ocean breezes flow through the home - you'll want to relax there all day. Finally, don't forget to head out to the lanai to watch the sunset on the ocean, if you're lucky you may even catch a green flash!
    Our neighborhood is in the Keauhou area of Kailua Kona. The Big Island is vast and Keauhou is an ideal base to explore it from. Guests looking to stay local often enjoy beach hopping along the Kona Coast. Two nearby favorites are Kahalu'u Beach, which offers some of Hawai'i Islands best snorkeling, and Magic Sands, which is loved for sunbathing, boogie boarding and surfing. Both are accessible on foot, but can be reached by car in 3-5 minutes. The Keauhou Shopping Center is kitty corner to our condo and a 5 minute walk. There are restaurants, shops, a movie theater, drug store, bank with ATM, and a grocery store all within the shopping center. Right above the shopping center on Kamehameha III Road is Sam Choy's at Kai Lanai, a fantastic open air restaurant with stunning views! Go down Kamehameha III Road towards the ocean and you'll end up at Fair Wind cruises, where you can book a catamaran trip and fantastic sailing adventures starting from Keauhou Bay along the Kona coastline. There is also the Kona Sportfishing charters in Keauhou Bay. Finally, the condo is on Ali'i Drive where the annual Ironman race is held. Drive north on Ali'i when you leave the condo and head 5 1/2 miles into the center of Kailua-Kona with all sorts of restaurants, shops, and scenery to take in - drive slow as you'll want to enjoy the phenomenal ocean views on this scenic trip into the center of town!
  • What we liked: Great place to stay near the Kona side of the island. Good shops in walking distance. Amazing pool and hot tub right near the condo. Beautiful views from the balcony. Michael is great at responding quickly with any needs. Great space for large families or multiple couples. Downstairs master bed was comfortable. Things to note: There is no central AC, just window units in each room. Therefore, the condo gets quite warm during the day. Only one assigned parking spot, and is located in the entrance area that does not have a sign (so a bit hard to find in the dark).

    Nicolle2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Michael’s condo was very beautiful. It had a very nice lanai that was perfect for eating meals on. The pool and hot tub were wonderful to come back to after a long day adventuring the big island.

    Becky2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing property so easy to get to from the airport with a shopping mall a few minutes away with everything you need for your stay. The views are unbelievable and the daily entertainment of the golfers was great. The condo is beautiful, the rooms/beds are very comfortable; so much so our family didn’t want to leave. Anyone would be really happy with this property.

    Pamela2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The unit is exactly as described in the listing, and is much less expensive than staying at a resort to comfortably accommodate 4-6 people. We really appreciated having the space of 3 separate bedrooms and bathrooms. If the Kailua area is your preferred home base for exploring the island and you envision going someplace different every day, then this this property is excellent value. Another plus is that there is a very good supermarket within a 5 minute walk. We often bought fresh raw fish and sushi rolls daily for an early lunch before heading out for the day.

    Jonathan2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was our third time to the island in three years. This was by far the best place we have stayed and well worth the price! Breathtaking views and the accommodations are 5 star! The home was clean and had everything needed as a home should. Michael was very good to work with and communicated promptly and accurately! We couldn't be happier and won't hesitate to book again on our return trip!

    Brett2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. The amenity was excellent. The sunset was amazing. The location is phenomenal - it was short drive to downtown Kona and south for Kona coffee tasting. I like the short walk to the grocery store and the farmer’s market on Saturday at Keauhou Shopping Center. The parking was easy and it was close by. I highly recommend it.

    Tony2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The condo is in a great location, away from the hustle of the pier in Kona, but a short drive down Allii to get to the markets and shopping. There is a plaza across from the complex which has a grocery store, pharmacy and some restaurants. The property has 3 pools on site, which have great views of the ocean and are fun to relax at after a day exploring the Island. Micheal is a great host and responds quickly. Condo is well cared for and has everything that you may need. Would certainly return.

    Leanne2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with stunning views. Updated decor and lovely bbq on lanai. Free dedicated parking spot was a plus and walking distance if needed to grocery, restaurants, urgent care and cinemas. Pool on site was well maintained and never busy. Some road noise noticeable in the morning with doors open but very quiet at night. Would recommend without hesitation.

    This gem is literally a few steps from the Ocean. It faces West, which allows you to see amazing sunsets every evening. Relax watching tropical fish, turtles, dolphins and whales (depending on season) and fall asleep with the soothing sound of the waves! Right next door from Magic Sands Beach, one of the few white sand beaches on the island. ~~NEW, on-site Restaurant w/ bar & beach shack and an incredible panoramic Ocean view now open for your convenience! Enjoy a Sunset cocktail & meal~~
    This studio has just been remodeled in Oct 2018 and it still has the nice, new smell inside. This condo is fully equipped to make you feel right at home. It features a brand new full kitchen with dishwasher for your convenience and full size (5 burner) stove in case you want to cook some good food. All the appliances are stainless steel and brand new. Bedroom, dining area and living area also feature new furniture. This condo does not have AC installed, but it features 2 large ceiling fans and a large tower fan. If you open the sliding glass doors by the ocean and the screened in front door it keeps the place cooler. Both the Queen size bed and the Queen size sofa bed have very comfortable and brand new memory foam mattresses. The headboard in bedroom features USB ports on both sides so you can easily recharge your electronic devices. The 43" flat screen TV comes with Spectrum Cable service featuring a bunch of HD channels and also a Chromecast device that will allow you to cast anything from your phone or computer (Netflix, Hulu, SlingTV, etc...) Lightning fast wifi internet connection at 200 Mbps All new beach gear for your use include: boogie boards, snorkel gear with fins, beach chairs and towels, umbrella and beach cooler with ice packs. It is conveniently located on the ground floor for easy access which is great since the building does not have an elevator. Amenities include an oceanfront swimming pool, 2 BBQ grills and a patio dining area also in front of the ocean. A free private parking spot is available just a few steps from the front door and a coin-op laundry room..
    This is one of the best neighborhoods you can stay at in Kona. It's one of the few places with a white sandy beach at walking distance. It is a great central location far enough from town to not feel crowded but close enough to shops and restaurants. A great place for snorkeling is a little more than 1 mile away at Kahalu'u Beach Park. Also just 2 miles away you can find Keauhou Shopping Center with its grocery store and restaurants.
  • Clean, crisp, fresh, convenient and comfortable, this spacious studio was our retreat for 16 glorious days. "Tropical Beauty" is well appointed with an uncluttered beachy feel ... exactly as pictured. All previous reviews are spot on ... 5-star! Check in was a snap (even at 1:30 am) and communication with Luc and Johanna was frequent and attentive. We especially enjoyed the coffee station, USB ports in the headboard, large night tables with good reading lamps, abundant hot water with solid water pressure, quality towels and linens and the very handy drying rack. Fans and ocean breezes kept us cool and comfortable each day. Everything was provided to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. Mahalo, Luc and Johanna for your care and attention. We truly hope to return next year. Debbie & Ken Vancouver Island, BC

    Ken2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay! Nice touch having the beach equipment. Tucked in between a beach and a park. Nice to have a restaurant on site. Will be back!

    Chris2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend staying here. It’s an amazing location. Beautiful beach. Great view. Parking is super easy. Restaurant on site. Clean, really nice apartment. Fall asleep listening to the waves. Everything as advertised.

    Dawn2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • I love this place! Great location, and has everything you will need. It was a ole sent surprise to have boogie boards available to us. Would stay here again!

    Azure2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Luca and Johanna's place is exactly as they present it. It was sparkling clean, up-to-date and stylish and has everything you need for a great stay. The view is fantastic. Even better is the sound of the waves through the night, the were very dramatic and a highlight. Communication with Luca and Johanna was perfect. They were responsive to every query and need during our stay, along with great follow-up. They are the model hosts.

    Bruce2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent choice for a couple! We looked at many beautiful condos but many were huge, multi-room offerings. This was the perfect size at a reasonable price. The place was beautiful, with a large window that opened up to the ocean. Magic sands beach is right next door - but you do need to rent a car. We weren't impressed with the on-site restaurant. But we enjoyed the swimming pool and the on-site management was very friendly. The room had everything you would need in way of kitchen and beach accessories. There was even a Lonely Planet guide book! We hope to visit again next year and this would be our first choice!

    Jennifer2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • I am grateful and pleased to stay in such relaxing accommodations. Everything was there for me. Even beach equipment; chairs, cooler, umbrella towels 😊

    Scott2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location - right next to a white sand beach. And they have a closet with everything that you need to chillax: beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie boards, etc. We had a great time!

    This is one of the few original beach Homes along the coast. With ocean access right at the property. We are just two miles from resort amenities along the same route as the Ironman Triathlon . Our Home has old hawaii charm and sits on a raised projection. You will share the home with long time residents and have use of kayaks, snorkel masks and other water sports gear and even some bicycles.
    Home has almost continuous entertainment from the fishing, surfers and the seasonal whales and spinner dolphins which make almost daily visits to the bay. Full use of the limited kitchen, living room and the large lanai are always open for sharing . Easy access, off street parking and incredible oceanfront living.
    there are four homes along this stretch of Alii Drive so there really is no neighborhood to speak of just random homes built along the shoreline.
  • Absolute gem of a spot. Pictures don’t do it justice. Todd is such an interesting man and his house is truly Hawaiian gem. After reading a couple pages of the book Hawaii by James Michener; which I grabbed off his book rack,I had to buy a copy myself. Wish I was still there. Enjoy the ocean view on his back porch and stay longer than a day.

    Brian2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely! Great views!

    Carson2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a beach house vibe with excellent hospitality, you’ve come to the right place! Todd’s house is amazing! The views are incredible and you can’t put a price on falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks. Don’t even get me started on the indescribable sunsets you’ll see from his gallery. If you want to make new friends, just go snorkeling in front of his house. You’ll be greeted by sea turtles and fish every day. If you’re lucky like us, you can even kayak with the dolphins. Todd let us do all of this free of charge! He is an amazing host and was always a delight to chat with. He gave us good suggestions on where to eat and what to do. The bed in the room is huge and really comfortable. The stars painted on the ceiling are a nice touch and having our own private bathroom was pretty perfect too. All in all, our stay was great and we’d go back anytime!

    Clémence2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Todd’s place was wonderful! He made us feel so welcome and the view from the back deck was AMAZING! It quickly became our favorite spot to enjoy and we were always a bit disappointed when we didn’t make it back for the phenomenal sunsets! We were also able to see lots of whales from the back deck which made my trip! Parking was a bit difficult as some others said, but Todd helped us get situated on our spot and even helped us park the car. This is not a resort type stay, but is comfortable, and again the view is spectacular! I can’t say how much I appreciated staying here, and will definitely look into staying here again if I’m able to come back!

    Lynn2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Todd was very friendly, welcoming, and responsive. The ocean was right outside our bedroom window; it was awesome to be lulled to sleep by it! The house is quiet, rustic and Close to town and activities.

    Lynne2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome stay! Thanks for the hospitality Todd...what an incredible view and ambiance to fall asleep and wake to, thanks for sharing with us!

    Karly2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Bedroom is spacious with a super comfortable King size bed. The Lanai is my favorite, just sitting there, looking at the busy ocean, searching for dolphins, watching the surfers, listen to the "noise of the waves", watching the sunset, falling asleep with this beautiful "noise" is fantastic. When we visit the Island again (4th time), we will stay with Todd at the "Ocean Delight" it's close to everything. Mahalo Todd.

    Renate2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Decent, rustic Old Hawai’i style. Great location, on Ali’i Drive, right on the ocean, you’ll hear the ocean all night. Parking is limited but adequate, quite dark outside the house at night—bring a flashlight. We stayed one night, our last night on the Big Island. Convenient to Kona airport. Not fancy, but meets the need. We slept well.

In the evening we do not use our area of the house that directly above your unit's bedroom/living room. - Your unit does not share any walls with our living area - As the unit is on the lower level it stays much cooler than outside temperatures and has no direct sunlight thus keeping it cooler. - For TV we have a Roku which has access to some local news.

There are some other vacation rentals on our street so there are other holiday makers often seen walking to the beach. **All legal short term vacation rentals must be registered with the state and given a transient accommodation license and numbers. This number must be posted in all advertisement including Airbnb.

  • This is an awesome place to stay! The location is perfect! The hosts were awesome! The unit was very clean and super comfortable! We will definitely be back. I highly recommend Brent and Sylvie's place!

    Thomas2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Clean space with a comfortable bed. Well stocked with everything you need to enjoy a day at the beach! Brent and Sylvie were great hosts :)

    Ava2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you want location, a clean, cute, and functional space, and a perfect spot to rest while exploring Kona, then look no further. Brent and Sylvie’s communication before we got to the Big Island made me feel even more confident we made the right choice. They even recommended Turo for a rental and places to eat and drink, and awesome sites (snorkeling, swimming). So warm and welcoming without being intrusive. Book this place!

    Amanda2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Brent and Sylvie were great hosts -- so friendly and welcoming! The studio was so comfy and clean and in such a great location. We had a lot of fun and can't wait to visit again.

    Michelle2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Brent and Sylvie’s place is in the perfect location, they provide use of snorkels and boogie boards along with any other beach equipment you can wish for. The accommodations are as described and very comfortable.

    Clarissa2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place near the beach. The studio had everything we needed. We didn’t miss not having a stove since we ate most of our meals out. The studio had everything else you might need. It’s a short drive to shops and restaurants. Only a few places to eat within walking distance though. It’s a very quiet residential street...perfect for a couple looking for a relaxing stay. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I thought it was a great value and very comfortable.

    Emily2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Ocean Lovers was a great place to base our West Hawaii excursions from. The place was roomy, bed was comfy and the neighborhood was quiet. It was a rocks throw from Magic Sands beach and several bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed being able to walk 3 minutes to the beach to watch the daily sunset. We would definitely stay there again. Sylvie and Brent are both experienced divers and can tell you where to go for the best diving and snorkeling adventures. You will not be disappointed.

    Bill2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place was very clean and as described. Sylvie was extremely helpful and available. Location to the beach was an awesome short walk! We loved it and would definitely recommend it!

    Live like a local in style on Ali'i Drive in Kailua Kona! Private room with queen sized bed in 2 bedroom condo. Shared living room, kitchen and bathroom plus off street reserved parking for 1 vehicle. Perfect location for 1 or 2 people in queen bed; single, couple, or parent and child age 10+ to enjoy surfing, fishing, swimming, jogging, walking, snorkeling, paddleboarding, or just chill! No pets, sorry! I would like to touch base on the volcano situation. We live 100 miles away from the Kilauea active volcano. The news is blowing this way out of proportion for us on this side of the Big Island. We would not even know that there was an eruption if it wasn't for the local news. The effects that we see from the volcano on this side of the island is Vog. It will get very overcast at times from the volcano. The Vog is very consistent with smog in Los Angeles. Hiking, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins and turtles, ziplining helicopter rides having a nice dinner and watching the sunset or hitting a happy hour and having a couple of cocktails is still going on here.
    Our condo is a hundred yards from the ocean. When we set on our Lanai you can hear the Roar of the waves, great way to start your day with a cup of 100% Kona coffee. If you head out our door and go south 1 mile Magic Sands Beach, that's what I'm talking about. If you continue another mile Kahalu'u Bay..... Lots of turtles.... Yeah baby. There is a store 50 yards from your front door if you need any type of beverage, chips, soda whatever, easy access. If you head out your front door and go to the right a hundred yards away is a trolly that will take you downtown for $2 each time you get on it...2-3 miles.... Schedule will be provided. I'm an avid paddle boarder and paddle 75 yards from my front door and swim with turtles often and dolphins... So that's how we roll here in Kailua Kona... Look forward to meeting you... Aloha
  • The hosts were very nice and helpful. The place was clean and they even had many things for us we could use (Snorkel gear, noodles, portable cooler etc.). They also recommended a lot of places worth seeing that weren't mentioned on the internet. Thank you for having us!

    Petr2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Expect the most awesome Airbnb experience ever. Mark and Pla are both wonderful and made sure that I felt welcomed and comfortable. They were very gracious hosts and I can't wait to be able to stay at their place again.

    Mayra2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Mark and Pla are great hosts. They are both friendly and welcoming. Mark has the best suggestions for eating and drinking out - I highly recommend listening to him. Everything from check-in to directions to useful tips were all great!

    Laura2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Mark and Pla were the most hospitable hosts and welcomed my sister and me into their home with open arms! They are so generous and kind. Most importantly, they are totally down-to-earth. Thank you for making our trip special, Mark and Pla!

    Yasmine2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Mark and Pla are incredible hosts! I spent 5 nights there and Mark gave me lots of adresses to enjoy my stay. He introduced me to paddle boarding and we have swim with the dolphins and the turtles. They are more than kind with their guests . I spent two entire days with Mark :) I strongly recommend to go there !!! It was a wonderful stay ! Thank you for everything :)

    Sidney2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, quiet and super comfortable. Mark and Pla are lovely and so is their place. Best deal in Kona!

    Allison2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Such a comfortable home for our family reunion. Have enough space for family of 8.

  • Amazing house for a group stay in Hawaii! Included thoughtful/useful amenities, like aloe vera, snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach coolers, and even seasonings/condiments in the kitchen. Easy communication with the local contact Lynn. She even left us a welcome gift of home-made chocolate chip banana bread when we arrived! We would highly recommend this place to others.

    Leigha2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our group of six spent five days at this great house at a great location. The kitchen has all you can need, including an assortment of spices and condiments. The beds are comfortable, and we spent each morning and sunsets on the lanai. We snorkeled with loads of colorful fish at nearby nearby Kahalu'u beach park and hiked to more snorkeling at the Captain Cook memorial in Kealakekua Bay. Amy had plenty of snorkel gear for us.

    Continue to help spread the word about this Fantastic Upscale opportunity near Magic Sands Beach and Ali'i Drive - E Como Mai!
    Welcome to La'Aloa Hale! The perfect location for individuals or couples in search of a Tranquil and Upscale environment. Close enough to be lulled to sleep when the surf is up yet tucked away from the bustle of Alli'i Drive. This apartment is located in a quiet area just a short 5 minute walk to Magic Sands Beach on renowned Ali'i drive. This exceptionally clean and nicely appointed upscale apartment is located on the ground floor. You will enjoy the separate entrance and backyard space with outdoor seating. Unlike many of the other spaces for rent on Airbnb, this is not a downstairs ohana with people living above you. It is quiet and private! La'Aloa Hale boasts a spacious 650 square feet of open living space with Air Conditioning. It is tastefully furnished including luxury linens on a new comfy queen bed, large walk-in closet, comfortable love seat, tropical dining area and kitchenette. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator and microwave for cooking. There is no oven/stove. The bathroom boasts a deep tub with shower and double sinks. You will be a Short Walk from the ever popular Magic Sands Beach - also known as White Sands Beach and by the traditional Hawaiian name of La'Aloa which means “Very Sacred”. The Kanaka Maoli (ancient Hawaiians) were very much in touch with the natural energy of the earth and were well aware of the special nature of this area. Perhaps the dolphins and whales who still spend time playing in the waters just off the shore of Magic Sands Beach shared secrets with them. Regardless, it is the area where the Ali'i (Hawaiian Royalty) chose to make their homes, hence the name Ali'i Drive. We are particularly lucky to have the remains of an ancient rock path running through our backyard. It was a well used way to travel from the ocean to the fertile farmlands up mauka (up the mountain). If you are lucky you might even see a Night Marcher! (ghost of an ancient Hawaiian warrior)
    The apartment is located off Ali'i Drive on La'Aloa Avenue in a peaceful residential neighborhood known as White Sands Estates. It is a wonderful resting spot for individuals or couples looking for a quiet retreat after a fun day of play. After experimenting with living in different areas and at different elevations on the Kona side of the island this is my favorite place! Warm, dry and nearly always sunny! Conveniently located near four popular beaches. It is a 5 minute walk to White Sands / Magic Sands Beach and 4 Mile. Magic Sands Beach features beautiful white sand (in the summer months), crystalline, turquoise water, and super fun boogie boarding. 4 Mile is a well-known snorkel and scuba diving spot. World class surfing is 1 mile away at Lyman's Bay to the North and Kahalu'u beach to the South. Kahalu'u also offers easy access to honu (green sea turtles), spectacular snorkeling and beginning surf lessons. Nearby Keauhou shopping center (2 miles away), has dining, shops, a grocery store, theater, live entertainment and a wonderful Saturday Farmers Market with local coffees, organic produce etc. Kailua Village, the main tourist area, and the town of Kailua-Kona are 4 miles to the north.
  • Great place, great location, great value. Paul’s place was located perfectly to walk to Magic sands beach or a very short drive into town to get food and see the town. The place was beautiful and just what we needed to use as a base since we were out and about during the day. Paul was super nice, easy to communicate with, and gave great recs on local food and stuff to do. Check in process was easy with the door code. Would come back and stay there again in a heartbeat. Thanks Paul!

    Matthew2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great host and wonderful stay

    Timbre2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here. The place is basic, but has everything you need. It was nice to have some essentials supplied like shampoo and beach gear. Good spot to use as a home base if you plan on spending most of your time off exploring the island. Paul was a friendly and hospitable host.

    Bree2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • If Paul's middle name isn't ATTENTION TO DETAIL it should be. He is so far ahead of the power curve on all things related to guest service it is simply amazing. I have stayed in Airbnbs all over the world and Paul and his places should be the benchmark by which all other lodging and hosts are judged against. Great place, great location, outstanding ammenities, close to tons of fun places and great restaurants :)

    John2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place next to the Ocean! Centrally located for all of Kona.

    Don2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location near the beach. Beautiful, big and very clean condo! Highly recommended!!

    Alexander2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We were only able to stay at Paul’s for one night but we enjoyed our stay very much! It was such a great location, we walked easily over to Magic Sands beach and watched the sunrise. Even the drive to his place was beautiful! He also gave great recommendations that we used and loved, that really helped us to get the most out of our trip. If we ever get to return to the big island, we look forward to staying with Paul!

  • A beautifully decorated Airbnb. The view is amazing. Joy has very nice ‘touches’ to making one feel welcomed. The kitchen set up is sparse and could easily be improved with a few additional items. Overall...we really enjoyed it. Joy was quick to respond and we enjoyed chatting with her and Greg.

    Karen2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Precisely as advertised. Even more beautiful than the photos. Great location. Very very clean. Many touches of home and perfect communication from host. Absolutely recommend. We will return.

    Josh2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely, but all too brief visit to Joy’s home. The location was ideal for exploring the Kona coast. The pool area was amazing with great views. While we never went swimming, we did relax poolside, and enjoyed the breathtaking stars from the lounge chairs. We only saw Joy once at the beginning of our stay, but she was very warm, welcoming and hospitable.

    Adam2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay. Highly recommend. Very clean and felt like an oasis away from home. Nice and quiet with a beautiful view. It was great to come back after a long day of exploring and relax by the pool!

    Krystal2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and comfortable bungalow. Access to the beautiful swimming pool is a plus! Perfect for watching the sunset at the end of the day. We liked the location a little behind the city. We appreciated the beach equipment at our disposal. Very nice welcome from Joy on our arrival. She gave us several tips on restaurants, activities, etc. Excellent communication upon booking. The only downside is the kitchenette, which has very minimal equipment, offering few options for preparing evening meals. The one-round hot plate did not work very well.

    Lili2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had so much fun at Joy’s Airbnb! She kindly greeted us and showed us around when we arrived and assured us she would be there if we needed her. The view was fantastic - breathtaking. We loved how close we were to all the sights and restaurants but still in a quiet area and we enjoyed the nightly bird and cricket sounds. The snorkel and beach gear was a great asset for us and we used it every day. The pool was wonderful to cool down in after being out most of the day in the sun and the rough and salty ocean. While the kitchen gear was minimal, it was still enough for us to make egg avocado toast breakfasts every morning, helping us save some food costs. I couldn’t have asked for a better stay in Kona! Thank you Joy.

    Anne2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful space, great location and helpful local tips! In addition, Joy responds very quickly and is very helpful. This was a great location for downtown Kona. Hiking and exploration was anywhere from 1-2 hours away. Rent a car, and you will be set for some great adventure!

    Veronica2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • You will love Joy's lovely bungalow. Great views, relaxing atmosphere plus a swimming pool. The views are outstanding as well.

    Oceanside luxury and elegance await you at our beautiful Kona Paradise home.

With two master suites and an over-sized chef’s kitchen, our home has the ideal layout for one or two couples or adult families and friends. This is the perfect home for honeymoons, romantic getaways, adventure vacations, anniversaries, beach holidays, and engagements! (In fact, this is where we fell in love and got engaged!) This home is a rare gem, and we look forward to welcoming you. Our favorite features of our home include: * The ocean (with public beach access) is right across the street! * Large master suite in main house with luxurious lava rock shower * Separate guest suite with private entrance and large bathroom * Gourmet chef’s kitchen with ample space for relaxing and entertaining * Private pool * Large patio (lanai) for sunbathing or entertaining * Carport and plenty of parking space * Internet-connected TV in living room * Two twin-size fold-out mattresses for extra guests * High-end finishes and travertine flooring for an ambiance of luxury Regarding our sleeping arrangements, we have one master suite with a King bed and one master suite with a Queen bed. Four people sleep very comfortably in these two rooms. We also have 2 twin-size, fold-out floor mattresses made of memory foam that can be placed in the living room or in the Queen master suite. These are ideal for teenagers or youth, but are not ideal for adults--unless you're comfortable sleeping on the floor. We also have a couch that can be used as a bed. When booking your dates, please note that many flights leave Kona late in the evening or at night.  Some guests like to book an extra night so you can stay in the house until your late flight home.   Due to the high number of guests and limited availability, we can't extend your stay past 11am on the day you check out during our busy season.   We hope that Kona Paradise will become your home away from home. We are happy to welcome guests 8 years of age and older.  Younger children require special approval so send us a message if interested!  The pool is just off the patio, and we want to make sure small children and toddlers are safe.  We are excited to share this exquisite vacation home with you!
    Kona Paradise is located right on Ali’i Drive just steps from some of the best snorkeling and beaches on the Big Island! Kona is world famous for its gin-clear, deep-blue waters. Kona means "lee" in Hawaiian and the region enjoys a dry, sunny climate with limited run off creating rich reefs and amazing visibility. Our home enjoys proximity to surf beaches, downtown Kona, shopping, farmer's markets and much more.
  • Had a great visit. Beautiful house and good location

    John2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great for four People. Nice privat Pool, very big kitchen

    Hen2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully located with a gorgeous view of the ocean, this is a stylish retreat that's a real gem. Well-outfitted kitchen and rooms. Pool with ocean amenities. I'll remember the sunsets we watched from the patio for a long time.

    Paul2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful home in paradise! 5 min walk from some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii. House was really special and a great value!

    Steven2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place was in a great location. There are two master suites (one is the guest house), which was perfect for our group of two couples. The pool is an awesome addition to have. Ample parking for our rental cars. Communication was great and instructions were thorough. Would definitely recommend!

    Emily2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Oh, the pool! The only private place on the main drive that has a pool and it was wonderful. And then the location, the sunset beach down the path across the street was the best followed by the snorkeling beach just a walk down the street. Staying in this house just added another level to the Big Island.

    Erin2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful and stylish home in a great location. An easy 10 minute drive north to Kona and a short walk to Kahalu’u Bay, the best and easiest snorkeling we have ever done. A lifeguarded beach with equipment rentals and lessons available. Great pool and a large carport behind the home for easy loading and unloading of luggage and groceries. Less than a mile south to a great shopping district with restaurants and an all complete super market. A great supply of beach towels and pool toys. All good. A great stay.

    We just remodeled this lovely house summer 2016 with new kitchen appliances and new bathrooms. This fantastic 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is just steps away from White Sands Magic Beach. Wake up to a view of the ocean and if you're into racing, we are located right on the Ironman Marathon. Watch the race as you BBQ on our front lawn or walk 50 yards into the water and snorkel, surf, or boogie board at one of the best beaches in Hawaii.
    Located next to Magic Sands Beach Park, one of the best beaches in Hawaii.
    This location is perfect for families. The White Sands Magic Beach features lifeguards who are on duty everyday, soft white sand and teal blue water perfect for boogie boarding and snorkeling.
  • The newly remodeled beach house was clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable. The location was great for getting to the beach, and Susan provided thoughtful touches like great books and even jigsaw puzzles for down time. Susan is a great host and was attentive to anything we asked for. We would love to stay again!

    Marcia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is just across the street from a good beach with body-surfing and snorkeling potential. Although the beach is called "Magic Sands," the sand comes and goes with the season and the weather. It was minimal when we were there. Do try out the Magic Sands Grill that's a short walk away -- how delightful to sit outside and watch the ocean waves as you are served wonderful food. The apartment itself is fully stocked and beautifully appointed. It was clean and airy. The air conditioning is a bit under-powered, but if you came to enjoy warm temperatures, you won't be put off.

    Jo2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great place to stay with kids, the available ocean toys like boogie boards and life jackets made it even easier. Nice and clean, spacious, thank you Susan.

    Paula2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious separate house in a group of three separate buildings. You get sneak peaks of the ocean view, but honestly walking across the street to watch the beautiful sunsets cannot be beat! Susan was a responsive host and the house had great amenities such as washer/dryer, large deck to lay out on, and BBQ. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here!

    Sona2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Best location and great value for what you get!

    Scott2020-01-11T00:00:00Z

    Bill2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great house and location. The house was much bigger than excepted. Nice and quiet neighborhood. The ocean is only 1 minute away. The beach is great for bodyboarding.

    Daniel2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • This location is amazing right across the street from magic beach. The host has everything you need snorkel, boogie board, dnadmin toys, chairs etc.... we will be back !

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Cathy’s studio. Our only ‘criticism’ is that the photos don’t do the place justice - it really is awesome; a new super clean bathroom; a great seaview from the balcony and a near-to fully equipped kitchenette. All the beach gear provided is a BIG plus too! It’s definitely a 5-star place! *****

    Andi & Lionel2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The location is amazing. So close to everything. Beautiful view from the deck of the ocean.

    Machele2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • The room was spacious, clean with a great ocean view. The location was perfect close to town , golf, beaches and great snorkeling. Cathy was a delight very accommodating and quite knowledgeable about the island. I had a perfect stay and would rate 5 stars.

    Thomas2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, spacious and private for two. Cathy has available everything you would need to go to the beach to swim or snorkel. She had beach chairs and towels, mask, fins, snorkels, boogie boards, water shoes, beach umbrellas and even a little cooler. The location was walking distance to a great beach for swimming. I would definitely stay here again!

    Carol2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay! I will definitely book again

    Tammy2019-10-02T00:00:00Z

    Kailua-Kona, HI, United States

    This is the original caretakers cottage of a larger oceanfront estate. Just 2 miles from resort activities of Kailua Kona on the route that the Ironman runs along the ocean. Cottage has a private oceanfront setting with ocean access, you will hear the ocean continuously. Cottage itself is approx. 60 years old with age spots and all. Safe and secure and dry! As you drive into the carport the entry is obvious with a lock box for access. Kitchen living room view with bedrooms/bath to the left.
    This cottage is oceanfront and has a lot of privacy even with easy access into the ocean
    Cottage is located within a corridor that allows for biking and running to resort amenities or of course you can drive to shopping or restaurants within minutes
  • It was a great place and I would definitely stay again, just a bit pricey for the condition. Could use a bit of fixing up. That said though, it was very clean and exactly as advertised, a surfer cottage! Todd was an awesome host, the location & view were beyond great, we saw turtles, puffer fish (many different fish) standing right on the rocks, check-in and out were super easy and simple. Shower had amazing pressure, never ran out of hot water. We had everything we needed for cooking, bed was super comfortable, fell asleep to the sound of the surf. There is a big TV with plenty to watch. We had a great time!

    Mathieu2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place! Great host!

    Matt 2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot beat this location - amazing ocean view and very close to downtown Kona and local beaches.

    Abigail2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • You cant expect an AMAZING view! Sunset is perfect from the lani an the lava rocks as the waves wash over them! There was a turtle in the cove steps from the lani, you can swim right there from the rocks and there are a couple local sandy beaches in walking distance. The guest cottage its self is aged and it is for the traveler that is in it for the experience not for the pampering. The owner lives next door and is very knowledgable about the island. stayed two nights ... two sunsets perfect for two has the basics.

    Christine2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • I almost would rather not leave a review because that means Todd’s place might be booked up even more next time we want to come and stay! You cannot beat this location. I don’t think there’s anyway to get closer to the ocean. The accommodations themselves are modest but clean and adequate (maybe could just use an outlet in the bathroom) and there’s not much reason to stay inside. Todd was extremely responsive. He let us use his kayak and other things. We weren’t sure how to turn on the TV and he showed up within about five minutes from the time I texted him. Very nice. He even invited us out on a fishing trip. This was a great experience. We actually spent a lot more time hanging out at the place then planned, because it was such a great location. Private but so close to everything. It was perfect for a couple.

    Debra2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect oceanfront location with amazing views, with the sound of waves in the bedroom. Very close to Kona. Stand alone cottage. As close to the water as it gets. Private outdoor patio. Very private and comfortable. Can’t beat the price! Definitely recommend!

    Lisa2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for an amazing sunset view and love listening to the waves crashing on the lava rocks, then you have found your ideal location. The pictures are exactly house the house is. It is a small beach house. If you want the feel of a hotel, this is not your place.

    Scott2019-11-11T00:00:00Z

    Great ocean views. Warm and inviting home. Walking distance to some of the best snorkeling on the island. Surf break Kahaluu is walking distance.

No smoking or pets allowed in our home or on our property.
    The neighborhood is a private gated community in the quiet Keauhou part of Kailua-Kona.
  • This was the fifth time we stayed in this house and we love each experience we have had here. We cannot recommend it enough! The location is perfect -- wonderful snorkeling within walking distance, shops and restaurants easily accessible, a great pool, and all of the Big Island to explore. The house is wonderful; each bedroom has its own bath, the kitchen is well equipped, and the art is amazing and fun. Andrea has always been a resonsive and helpful host. We will continue to return!

    Alice2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, wonderful island comfortable house Just lovely 😊

    Robert2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful home in a wonderful location. Beautiful views from the lanai, and all of the amenities you could ask for.

    Sean2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • The location of this home is perfect; close to activities and amenities, yet quiet and gorgeous in a gated community. The house is very comfy and has just about everything you need for an enjoyable stay on the Big Island. You know it's perfect when you just don't want to leave!

    Dion2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great space and plenty of room for all of us. The air conditioning is a little anemic for the big room, so the hosts ask you to keep the temperature up at 78, but that's plenty comfortable in the bedrooms, the compressor just can't keep up with the high ceiling in the main area. Quiet, clean and a great little pool for the toddler on days when we didn't want to haul her to the beach.

    June2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying in this home as it was both stylish and very comfortable. There were five of us staying at the home at one point, and everyone had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the home and scenery. Walking distance for us to beaches and stores. The artwork in the home was a treat and stirred many conversations among our group. We planned trips up and down the coast and liked the central location. We found the temperature of the home comfortable, using the fans and opening windows. Most of our meals at the home were on the large table on the back porch with the ocean view. Very well equipped kitchen, and many other amenities found in the bathrooms. We even had a competitive game of Squabble one night, found in a game drawer. Andrea had great recommendations on the site about where to eat and things to do. We highly recommend this home for a relaxing and comfortable stay.

    Mona2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea was quick to respond. The house was beautiful. We loved that each couple got their own bathroom. Good location! Cozy house!

  • Main Client (birthday girl): By far the best Airbnb I have ever stayed in. This house was a treat to myself for my 30th Birthday celebrating with 9 other people and it did not disappoint! I stayed in the master suite behind the pool and let me tell you, pictures do not do it justice, it is huge! The room is adjoining the master bathroom which has a jacuzzi tub, double sinks, a long walk in closet, and then the shower which has a rainfall shower head as well as a fixed one, and a handheld one. You can get a great view of the Kona coast right from the shower or just walk out to the pool deck and you will be blown away. The house was very accommodating in itself. They supplied us with plenty of towels, beach towels, sheets, hand soap, shampoo/conditioners, the laundry room already had detergent, the kitchen had plenty of tea, seasonings, a cooler and the list goes on and on and on! We had a slight issue with the grill and the blender and mid stay we asked if the hot tub could get cleaned out again (it was 10 of us) and Emmy as well as all her staff got back to us right away. Emmy’s husband came by to drop off a brand new blender, he also got us some long lighters for the grill, and the jacuzzi was cleaned out again. The neighborhood is very peaceful, we felt very safe. We were at the very top of the hill on a dead end street. There was plenty of shops nearby for groceries, we mainly went to KTA supermarket but there is a Walmart close by as well. The closest beach is Magic Sands beach and it was so chill. Rent a car like we did and just go and explore-guarantee you it will be the best time on the island ever! Birthday Guest #1 This home was beautiful from the inside out! The views were breathtaking and the home itself was extremely spacious. There was a group of 10 ladies so having access to 5 bathrooms was great! The homeowners were only a phone call away and fixed any issues that we had. They were very responsive and never gave us a hassle. My only recommendation would be to please have a broom in the home so that we can do an even better job of keeping your home clean. Thank you for everything! We would definitely rent again!

  • This a great property and it was prefect for a large group. Everyone really enjoyed the pool and the view. Everyone had their own space. Any problems were taken care of promptly. Only real complaint was window covering are very private(see through them easily. We all had a great time. We had 10 adults and 3 kids 5 and under.

    Robert2019-09-28T00:00:00Z

  • A beautiful home, perfect for large groups. The view was beyond amazing and communication with home management was great to have. Location was very central and easy to drive to all the fun areas of the island. Would love to stay here again.

    Peg2019-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Alii Makai is an outstanding house in a beautiful location. There were 12 of us in our family, and we had the time of our lives. The pool was wonderful, and the covered eating area overlooking the pool was ideal for eating and socializing. We had privacy and amenities to take care of our needs. I can't say enough good things about our experience. We loved it.

    Eugenia2018-12-29T00:00:00Z

    Dale2018-11-16T00:00:00Z

The location was ideal for access to great beaches, the downtown shopping & farmers market, food, and quick access to the main roads. The house is tucked into a quiet neighborhood with lots of sidewalks, perfect for walks and very safe for the keiki’s. The parking was spacious, the pool was large, and the house was very clean! Emmy was quick to help us with any questions and was very friendly. We had a great time on the big island and really appreciate the comfortable atmosphere provided us during our stay!

  • Sarah's place is in a great location, between Kona main area and the best snorkelling on the Kona coast (2 steps). Quaint little studio with all the cooking facilities you may need in a quiet residential area on top of the hill and looking down toward the coast. Lovely little lush tropical garden provides a lot of privacy from the neighbours. Noodle was a great little companion as well 😊

  • Our stay here was perfect. The space was perfect for the two of us and the bed was extremely comfortable. We were gone during the day but enjoyed starting our mornings there with the sunrise and ending our days lounging around as we prepared for bed. We were a comfortable distance from downtown and any store we needed. We would absolutely stay here again!

  • We had a fantastic time at this spot! Great location and we loved the pedestrian only path down the road for morning runs. Super comfortable and a nice place to come back to at the end of a day of exploring. Thank you!
