Description

Located on a quiet oceanfront property just south of commercial Kona, this two-bedroom two-bath vintage cottage boasts a large covered lanai, classic Hawaiiana furnishings and a grassy yard with parking. With one queen bed and three twins, it’s ideal for a small to medium family or a couple wanting some well earned space. The kitchen, which offers both a bar and a dining table for four, has ocean views to the north and south, where whales splashing about offshore can be seen regularly from November-March. Two surf spots are located just out front to either side — one for all levels and one for experts only — and a short walk down the road leads to a small convenience store and a surf shop where most all water sports needs can be fulfilled, including rentals of both surfboards and dive gear. Having been owned by the same family for three generations, this charming cottage has the upside of mixing time with labor of love.

Once we got inside and opened the house up we made ourselves at home for a week and it was great. Nice and cozy home with a central location between shopping, restaurants, and beaches.

The cons seem like nitpicking but you should be aware of them. Traffic on Ali’i can be distracting if you wake easily, and since the neighbor seems to have a used car lot at his house getting out of the property can be difficult and could really be helped with some mirrors. The management company says they have a concierge but we never got a response with three attempts after the initial contact.

Wth all that being said, I would definitely stay at this house again.

Beautiful traditional Hawaiian beach house with a few rough edges

Beautiful and modestly sized house right on the water. Not sandy beach babe t we were not looking for beachfront. Relaxing lanai and terrific location for watching surfers and sunsets. Overall, comfortable but pricey.

For the cost, the beds are rock hard and can leave one stiff. Driveway needs mirrors in order to safely pull out onto road. Neighbors park vehicles on shoulder eliminating view to oncoming traffic.

Great place for an unplugged stay that does not suffocate as resorts can do. I would recommend with eyes wide open on bed comfort.

A private house right on the water with space and fabulous waterfront views and access.
This is an authentic older house with great summer cabin feel- open shutters and doors for breezes and ocean sound. We loved our spot for enjoying full day access and viewing of the ocean and lava rocks (with turtles) right out front. The generous linai, the well stocked kitchen, the comfy living room were all as pictured and wonderful. Easy access to town and anything Kona right off Alii Dr.
The one slight issue was noise in in the bedrooms from Alii, but the road calms down a lot at night and doesn't impact the living spaces at all. If you are looking for an authentic cabin on the water from which to explore both the water and Kona- this place can't be beat!

We arrived on Christmas Day, Monday Dec. 25 and left on Monday, Jan. 1,New Years Day. The only problem with arriving on a Monday that is a Holiday, no trash pick up. So the entire time we were there we had no trash service. I tried texting the number I was given if there was a problem and the reply from the text was, I had the wrong number. Mind you it was the number listed at the rental on the information page for tenants. If it wasn't for the trash issue I would give all 5 stars for the rental. The location is perfect, saw sea turtles everyday right down in from of the house on the water, Sunsets beautiful. I feel it's best for a family or couple. It would have been difficult if it was 2 couples, one bedroom had 3 twin beds the other a queen. There are 2 full bathrooms and the kitchen sink overlooks the ocean which made doing dishes wonderful. I would recommend this property. Snorkeling, paddle boarding, bogey boarding, hiking you name it it's all there. We had a wonderful time.

turtle-watching from the lanai!

Such a wonderful, relaxing place to stay. Located a little too far to walk to downtown Kona, but very convenient on Alii Dr. We enjoyed snorkeling off the rocks behind the house and sleeping on the Lanai at night. Saw dolphins jumping in the wake of a boat off the lanai as well. Pretty ideal spot for a typical Hawaii vacation!
