Kona Bay Oceanfront Romance

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

75-5442 Kona Bay Drive Kailua Kona, HI 96740 United States

Escape to your own romantic, vintage Hawaiian style beach house located within walking distance to Kailua-Kona in a private, gated enclave of fabulous homes. This Kona Bay Estates oceanfront home offers comfort and a warm welcome in a spectacular setting.

With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, a 50 foot solar heated lap pool and 3 separate lanais, it is the perfect place for a gathering of family and friends with spaces to come together to enjoy each other and other spaces to relax in private. A small 5th sleeping area with one twin bed located off the kitchen is perfect for one person and expands the maximum number of adult guests to 9. A pack and play crib is also available along with a twin airbed to expand options for children.

Open up the doors to take advantage of cooling ocean breezes and that indoor-outdoor lifestyle that is synonymous with Hawaiian living. Redwood, cedar, and lava rock walls seem to magically grow out of the surroundings in an interesting counterpoint to the clear aquamarine ocean and frothy white of the waves.

The sun sparkles on the water and then provides a breathtaking kaleidoscope of color with every unique sunset. But don't go in yet! The stars and planets are coming out to provide their own inspiring dance across the heavens. Better pick up some groceries on the way in because you may never want to venture away from your private escape to see what else Kona offers!

This home is listed for sale and showings may be requested with 24 hour notice during your stay.

    I almost don't want to write a review because I want to keep this wonderful house a secret. The home, the view, and even more so working with Carole on the reservation was perfection. I am so grateful I got to spend my days around Ultraman at the house.

    a guest from Winnipeg (Fort Garry NE / Univer, MB recommends this vacation rental

    We are back in snowy, cold Winnipeg...and already missing the beauty of Kona and the house! My family and I spend Christmas in this oceanfront is exactly as depicted in the photos. What a magnificent view from the lanai out over the Pacific! With the many walls of louvered windows, this truly opens the whole house to the outside. The master bedroom has similar sliding windows onto a private lanai...what a view to wake up to!

    Excellent location and just a few minutes drive into Kailua-Kona. Located in a gated community, it's secure and quiet. Beds were very comfortable; lots of hot water and good water pressure. We appreciated the well stocked items of toilet paper, paper towels and general pantry items. Washer and dryer worked just fine. There was an ample supply of kitchen linens, bath and beach towels.

    4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, huge living room and terrace...plenty of space for everyone. While not every bedroom has A/C, it was not needed. With the terrific outside space, we didn't use the living room. Kitchen is well-laid out with all the mod cons. We even had a pair of red-headed brazilian birds pop into the kitchen/dining room looking for treats :). The gas grill on the lanai was put to excellent use.

    Watching the amazing sunsets from the lanai was an extra special part of each day. One small suggestion? As the lanai faces SW, an umbrella or awning would be a terrific addition for those who cannot sit out in the direct, hot afternoon sun.

    While we did not have the pleasure of meeting Carole or Chelsea, communication was very prompt and efficient.

    Overall, this house more than met our expectations and would highly recommend.

    We stayed at the Kona Bay Oceanfront Romance property for a week. We had eight adults and an infant in our party and the house was a perfect fit for us. Having the pool was a big hit with us, allowing for some nice relaxing time between excursions. The only drawback was there was no a/c in the master suite on the second floor, but that was offset by the floor to ceiling window panels opening completely, allowing the breeze in. We had a great time during our stay and this property was perfect for us.

    Brittney B from Clovis, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Everything was great, minus the weather being hot and the house not having A/C in the living room area, the downstairs bedroom by the laundry room and master bedroom. The bedrooms that did have A/C felt fine, but the ones that did not were uncomfortable to be in.

    The only minor problem we ran into was the pool being a little dirty, but the manager got on it quickly which I appreciated!

    The house came with a lot of water activity gear in the garage (boogie boards, kayak, water shoes, life vests, umbrellas) which was very useful.

    Great location and house, walking distance to downtown Kona. I would recommend this house depending on weather.

    We took our adult children, 6 of us in all, and had a wonderful time. Enjoyed family cooking in the kitchen and with the easy-to-use propane BBQ. The master BR opens to breezes and ocean views and sounds, and the others have A/C. The house is (rocky) beachfront, with tide pools. Sandy beach is a few hundred yards' walk. Adequately long lap pool was wide enough for 2. We loved this house and would gladly return.

    Jennifer C from Edmonton, AB recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful stay at this house. It's in a great location close to central Kona, yet removed enough to be quiet. It's within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in town, although we cooked most of our meals in the house and ate them watching the sunset. The house couldn't be better equipped in terms of pool and water supplies. It had absolutely everything, from kayaks and paddles right down to pool toys for little children. It was amazing to be able to watch the kids playing in the pool and stare at the ocean just beyond. There is a bit of sand on the other side of the pool wall that the kids played on for hours - building sand castles and saving crabs.

    The Keiki beach is about a five minute walk along the lava wall and is perfect for small children; in fact it is about the only beach we found (and we looked all up and down the coast) that was suitable for our kids to play in without worry. There is no real tide and they can splash around without you having to literally have a hand on them at all times. We even saw a turtle there while snorkelling.

    If I had any feedback, it would be that the plumbing fixtures are in poor shape - they are old and loose and not in good working order and that the kitchen was not particularly clean. The cupboards were covered in a layer of grime and the pots and pans (which are plentiful) had to be rewashed. The stove is old and the burners don't heat up properly and it too was grimy. I have communicated this to the property manager, who was, in all respects, very responsive and easy to deal with, and I expect the cleanliness issue will have been taken care of. I would recommend a stay in this residence.

    Kristin H from Geneva, IL recommends this vacation rental

    The location of the house was exceptional and the view breathtaking. It was a quick walk into town, which is nice because parking is sometimes difficult to find in town. The house was well maintained, but a bit warm and uncomfortable for sleeping. I understand that I was going to a tropical island, but was hoping for more of a breeze and cooling winds being right on the water. The house opened up beautifully, which allowed for several visitors, multiple legged ones, but that became kind of charming after awhile. Two of the bedrooms had window units for cooling, but the beautiful master bedroom was quite warm. We found fans, and that helped. The pool was a welcome relief and the view couldn't be beat. The security in the neighborhood was exceptional. Overall I would recommend this house to someone who doesn't mind sharing it with an occasional lizard, mongoose or cat. Not to mention every type of bug. But it really is a great house. Well stocked house with much to offer. Loved it!

    Our family of 3 generations stayed here over Christmas. It was the perfect spot for our large family, lots of beds, bathrooms, privacy and the outdoor living space was beyond amazing! The doors open right up so the "inside becomes one with the outside" The pool was great, altho i would not suggest this pool for young children as it is all deep, no shallow. The view was constantly changing, we saw whales a couple of times, the waves crashed all day & night. The master suite was a dream come true , everynight we went to sleep to the sound of the waves & each morning woke up with the sea in our view. Lots of TV's if you needed them, we never turned ours on. Gated community with security patrols so we felt very safe. Within walking distance to town too! THis house is $$$ but if you can do it, go for it! I would stay here again. Lots of towels, hangers, dishes etc. Regular garbage pick up, pool toys, snorkel gear...yep, this house had it all!

    We were celebrating birthdays with whole family and found the place to be a great venue. Only problems not resolved by management related to air conditioning in bedrooms, which really was not adequate. They did bring some fans, but sleeping in all but master on top floor was not really comfortable. There were new AC units in garage awaiting installation, so perhaps the situation will improve for future guests.

    My only caution would be to anyone travelling with older people. The pool has
    very deep step to get in and could be difficult for some people.

    We also appreciated greatly the pool toys, beach chairs and snorkels. We hope to return sometime soon!

    a guest from Park Hills, KY recommends this vacation rental

    Great location, ideal for multi-generational group except for the pool. Nearly impossible for the older folks to get out of it. There is no ladder, the pool is all the same depth so walk-in is not possible, and the built in "step" is not useful at all. In comparison to pools at the other homes in Kona Bay Estates, this one is definitely low on the functional scale. Fortunately, we had many activities planned so the pool was not a focus of our stay. Carole Kwiat was awesome as our rental agent! The wide open kitchen, dining, and family room were perfect for our group of 9. All furniture ,including beds, was very comfortable, and the house was very well stocked with most necessary household items. The outside of the house could use some sprucing up but it didn't affect our enjoyment of the rental. Despite the openness of the house, we felt very secure in this gated community. Best part was the wide open lanai facing the ocean. We all did a lot of reading/relaxing/dining there. What a view at all hours of the day. Overall it was a great choice for our family gathering. Even walking into Kona village was easy and the village is delightful. We would happily stay in that area again.

    We had 8 people at this house and it had plenty of room. The pool was very warm for a solar pool we all enjoyed it very much. The location was beautiful and restful. The 2 small issues we had were tended to happily and quickly and very professionally. The house was well supplied all we needed was food. As far as points to improve maybe an electric knife sharpener as the blades were pretty dull and the refer had some issues with the ice chute getting clogged. Those are definitely minor issues that did nothing to take away from the beauty and enjoyment of the house. We all had a great time and are very grateful for the experience. We would go back tomorrow if we could.

    We arrived after dark so were not able to fully appreciate the lovely location until the next morning. Truly beautiful to sit and look out at the ocean with the waves crashing the shore. Loved being able to completely open the accordian windows/doors in the back. You felt like you were sitting outside.

    The house accommodated our family perfectly-6 adults and 3 children. The variety of items for the beach was terrific-masks, snorkels, fins, noodles, floats, body boards, etc was super. Plus the bicycles, tennis rackets-just everything you could want. And an ample supply of beach towels.

    We were unhappy to lose the WiFi for the last 4 days. Son and son-in-law were unable to interface with their companies as they had anticipated.

    It was not quite as luxurious as other homes we have rented but certainly met our needs. We have recommended it to others already.

    This was one of the most amazing houses that we have rented for a vacation! The house had plenty of space for our family of 8. The kids loved swimming in the pool each day while the adults enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. One of the best aspects of the house is the ability to open up the whole living room/dining room to the outdoors. This was the first thing that we did each morning. We did have some issues with the internet but did finally get it going. There are plenty of beach supplies such as chairs, towels, toys. boogie boards, etc in the garage. Our last night in the house, the most incredible thing happened...we were sitting and watching the sunset when we heard a splash. At first, we thought that it was a dolphin but then we saw a huge tale come up over and over again for about 15 mins. It was a momma whale and her baby. She must have been stunning fish for the baby to eat...what a sight and the perfect send-off. I do not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone. Enjoy!

    The home was great for our extended family. Plenty of room for everyone. Generally clean. Lots of beach towels. Nice walk to the tide pools for the kids. Wonderful view of the ocean. Loved how close it was to town yet not in the heart of town. The only drawback was it is located directly across from a public park and I was kept up for many hours Friday night by the loud noise and music and baseball games. I called the security guard to complain but was told he could do nothing as it was public property. I had to sleep on a couch in another room for most of the night because of the noise. Otherwise great house.

Lots of equipment in the garage .. bicycles, kayaks, ladders, tools, water toys, etc. The folding walls in the living and dining rooms gave us total access to the ocean view and breezes off the water. That extended the patio from the pool to the inside of the house, which was just heavenly. Plenty of space for everybody to do their own thing, comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms well supplied with lots of towels, also beach towels in abundance. Couldn't have asked for more, and would visit this house again in a heartbeat; hated to leave.

    a guest from Morro Bay, CA recommends this vacation rental

    I spoke with Carole during our stay with a couple of questions and to tell her about some of the issues of this house. The layout/set up for our family was perfect. The house is beautifully designed, very comfortable, well supplied in the kitchen and with equipment for going to the beach, etc., but it shows much wear and tear, especially outside, mostly caused by its proximity to the ocean. Some of these things should not be delayed any longer, or sooner, rather then later, it will be impossible to open some of the windows/doors. The pool is wonderful, but getting out for a 75 year old required help, as the step into the pool is very small. Our experience with Carole was very positive, and we were allowed to stay longer on the day of our departure as our flights left in the afternoon. All in all we had a great time, and the location of the house was perfect, although one night there was an all night event in the park behind us, complete with loud speakers, but otherwise, fortunately, that happened only one time during our stay. I would definitely recommend this house to friends, noting the mentioned problems.

    We had our two sons and their wives, plus four grandchildren, three and under, for a week. With little ones we didn't do as much as we normally would, but we enjoyed the tennis at the park right behind the property, the little children's beach, and the wonderful view. The property manager, Carol, was great, and got us two pak'n'plays, which simplified our lives. The one thing we noted at the end of the trip was the kayaks hanging in the garage. If they can be used by renters, that would be nice to know, because I certainly would have done so.

    Lillian S from Toronto, Ontario recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at Escape to Extraordinary for 6 days in January 2012. The property was the most beautiful property that we have ever experienced and we have stayed at quite a few places. The house itself was large and beautifully maintained. The lanai at the back was wonderful and perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. My children loved swimming in the pool. The house was perfectly maintained and everything worked well. The house came very well stocked with supplies; an extremely welcome addition and it really facilitated cooking. The owners even left a welcome basket with chocolates, coffee and nuts. Carole was very friendly and helpful. We will certainly return to this house if we travel to Kona again.

    Nice location, house could use some updates and maintenance. Did not like the fridge in the laundry room. Nice view and close to town, good security, lots of recreational items for use...exp. tennis rackets, bikes, snorkel gear, chairs, coolers, boogie boards.

    the house was awesome, the location was awesome, the view was awesome, the security people were very helpful and friendly, Carole was very helpful and easily accessible. any difficulties were quickly remedied. the house was very comfortable, nicely equipped. the total front side of the house opened up - and was a beautiful addition to the accommodations.

    thank you

  • It would have been nice to have screens on some of the bedroom windows, particularly with rooms with no air conditioning. I would also like to have had curtins on the bathroom windows. There should also be a ladder for the pool for elderly.

    Marcia W from Santa Cruz, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The house is lovely but needs some TLC. Simple things mostly like the sliding doors sticking and very hard to move. One of the toilets very slow to flush, obvious wear - fans flaking, floor flaking. None effected our stay, but it's the kind of neglect that will only get worse on such a well done home.

    Nathan S from Etna, NH recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed for 8 wonderful days in this house with a total of 6 adults and 2 children. We couldn't have been more pleased with the house, amenities, location. The house opened up to the coast so that we were constantly listening to the waves breaking against the shoreline. The house has all the "extras" that one could want (outside showerhead, pool, boogie boards, wine cooler, etc.). It is within walking distance of the Old Airport Beach and Ali'i Drive.
    Carole was extremely helpful in working with us to make an absolutely perfect vacation!!! We want to get back as soon as possible!

    a guest from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We loved opening the walls of the main floor and living a true indoor/outdoor life--with only dramatic lava between us and the crashing surf and the view of many whales. The only thing missing was towel bars and hooks. We had no desire to do laundry every day, but it seems that was expected. There was not a single place to hang a towel to dry inside the house--a baffling oversight for the seven of us, who ended up draping our bath towels over the lovely furniture so that they would dry. But, really, perfect in every other way for us.

    Great House, Great Location, house is very well equiped in the Kitchen (Pots, pans, spices, BBQ, etc..) and outdoor equipment (snorkel gear, beach chairs, boogie boards..etc). Carole Kwiat is a great property manager to work with. Only negetive I would say is that there is no classic wave break, or bay with beach in front of house, so access into water is challenging for most swimmers. Waves crash right onto sharp lava rock. Otherwise, this house will exceed expectations.

    a guest from Cortlandt Manor, NY recommends this vacation rental

    We have rented lovely homes in Kona for 6 years during the Ironman Race. This home was the best in all categories. We loved that owners included sports equipment, that supplies were plentiful, and home was meticulously clean. The master bedroom is wonderful with sounds of crashing waves and ocean breezes. The other bedrooms are fairly ordinary but functional. I thought from pictures that house looked dark because of stone walls, but house is so open that I was not bothered by walls. The living room furniture is also more comfortable than it looks in pictures. The pool was not merely decorative; one could actually swim and exercise in it. We have already booked a return visit.

    My family had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. It was well stocked with all the necessary cooking supplies in addition to other amenities that were available(regrettable we didn't get a chance to utilize the bikes and kayaks). The location was spectacular close to shops and the view was mesmerizing. The 24hr guarded gate was comforting to have and the guards were exceptionally helpful and friendly. On the weekend the neighboring sports complex gets noisy but it did not disturb us. Besides an ant problem and the need for the water filter change in the fridge we all had a memorable time and Carole was very welcoming and accomodating.

    We very much enjoyed this property. Kona Bay Estates is a wonderful, upscale community. The view from the house is amazing. We loved how the pocket doors open on all sides of the back of the house for that outdoor/indoor feel. The lap pool was an added bonus. The house was very well equipped. We would recommend this property.

    a guest from Pasadena, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The home is a wonderful retreat and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The views are spectacular. A few cautions: The home is located in a very nice development, but you have to drive through a very industrial area to get to it. Also all the homes there back up to community athletic fields and they are used everyday and evening until 10/10:30. You'll have very bright lights around the house and very loud announcers/music for hours daily. This was a major disappointment and made our dinners not so great. Also there is some type of biting insect that we never saw, but all of us suffered bites in the home, usually when sleeping. Our kids in particular suffered several each.

    This is a great property. We had a family get-together c/w 3 generations including 2 infants.

    Highly recommend!

    A wonderful home! Beautifully appointed with everything one would need in the kitchen. Loved that all the incidentals were there, i.e. paper towels, TP, seasonings, soap, laundry soap. It makes a big difference not to have to bring or buy all
    those things. Perhaps two more chez lounges would have really completed a very well furnished outdoor area.
    It was a lovely home and we enjoyed it immensely.

    We had a great stay at #42 in Kona Bay Estates. The whole extended family, including 7 adults and 4 children fit comfortably in the home. We were there celebrating my parents' 70th birthdays, and it was nice to have large family dinners with views of the sunset and sounds of the ocean.

    The kids loved the pool and the keiki beach just down the road.

    It was in a very convenient location - close to the airport and shops, as well as white sand beaches and pick up points for deep sea fishing, snorkeling, and the Mauna Kea summit tour.

    Carole was a great help and provided us with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend the property to friends and family, and hope we have the opportunity to come back again soon!

    My whole family had a great time at this house, and commended me on all of my hard work lining it up (it was actually really easy, but I took the kudos!). The property manager was awesome, our kiddos still wear the little shirts you gave us, and the house was amazing. We loved the open feel of the whole downstairs, with doors that completely opened to look out on the pool and beach. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone heading to Kona!

    We love Kona Bay Estates - particularly the homes facing the ocean. The most wonderful memory for me was enjoying my morning coffee on the lanai watching the sun rise over the ocean and the boats (including 2 large cruise ships) sail by. We also enjoyed watching the sunsets in the evenings - unbeatable view! The house itself could use some love & care - upgrade/clean up rusty doors and faded outdoor furniture. This could be a real gem if taken better care of. 'Loved the decor. Caroline is a great property agent and I'd recommend this agency to anyone!
