Large beautiful house right on the ocean. Etched glass entry doors were beautiful and rolled open for front to back ventilation. The Koa wood floors are lovely. We spent a lot of time on the Lanai, breakfast, relaxing and barbecuing each evening. The formal dinning area was perfect the one evening we had guests and also doubled as an impromptu office.
There were 5 of us, but plenty of space and privacy. Air conditioning worked very well, nice that each room had it's own, so we could open up the main area during the day, but keep the bedrooms cool. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms quiet.
Kahaluu Bay and White Sands beach were easy walking distance. The cooler really came in handy, but we didn't find any beach chairs.
Our deposit was promptly returned.
Altogether the perfect beach house.
Amazing location, Koa Hale is the beautifully accented home, very well takin care of. 6 of us stayed and we had plenty of room. like other reviews the Lani is where we spent out time, hot tub, BBQ with a lot of room. SUNSETS!
Three generation, family of 6 stayed at the amazingly beautiful Koa Hale! It had everything we needed and more! Our favorite part of the house was the lanai, where we spent the majority of the time we were at the house. We saved a great deal if money by cooking most of our meals at the house. We even saw sea turtles and a pod of dolphins swimming by! If we ever go back, you can bet this is where we will be staying again!
House was fabulous and had everything you needed. Loved star gazing on the lanai st night and the million dollar view during the day
Paid extra for the air conditioning in September which worked out great. Location was perfect for traveling to all areas if the island. We would go hiking during the day, stop at a beach on the way home, and come back to a relaxing house with a hot tub. They even had a cooler we could use to take on our day trips.
We loved the Big Island. Our first stop after leaving the airport was Kona Brewing. Great place to start the trip.

The location right on the water cannot be beat. Gorgeous views, sunsets, turtles etc. The house is extremely comfortable, especially the beds. Plenty of towels, including beach towels, chairs, coolers, reusable grocery bags etc. The kitchen is well equipped although pretty cleaned out of staples such olive oil, spices etc. Cooking is a joy with the view of the ocean from several windows. Coffee on the lanai each morning was perfect. The retractable awnings and screens were also very appreciated. It is easy walking distance to White Sands beach and Kahaluu Bay, as well as the grocery store. Snorkeling behind the house is some of the best on the island. The property managers were very easy to deal with and accommodating our request of an early check in. The only area needing attention in our opinion was the snorkel gear is pretty worn. We had our own and only needed to use a couple of their items, but I would not count on it for 6 people. There is a place to rent snorkel gear, standup boards, surf boards right down the street as well. We could not have had a better experience, will definitely stay here again next time we are on the big island.
