We have just returned from nine days in Kona Hi staying at Kona Moana Hale. We had a wonderful time due in a large part to the house that we stayed in. Ron has created a great cottage on the water that is well maintained and appointed, clean and extremely comfortable. Every need is met and the location is absolutely perfect. To be closer to the water you would need flippers. We spent our mornings drinking coffee and watching the surfers and our afternoons reading and relaxing and watching the spinner dolphins jump and play. In the evening after a dinner out at one of the local restaurants we returned to "our deck" and watched the stars over the water. As an added bonus the Ironman competition was held the week we were in Kona and they ran right through the front yard as part of their race. Ron was very helpful and responsive when making the reservations and worked with us to secure dates and rearrange times. He even called the first morning to see if we had any questions and make sure everything was running smoothly. I cannot recommend this house and experience enough. We hope to return soon.

“Oceanfront Paradise”

My wife and I were truly blessed to have spent a week at this beautiful and spacious oceanfront cottage. The first thing we noticed when we walked in was the stunning view of the pacific ocean. You have to see it to believe it. As we settled in we could not help to notice our hosts impressive attention to detail in creating a warm and hospitable environment. They truly went to great lengths to provide their guests with all the comforts of home. From a fully equipped kitchen (including a pizza cutter) to wifi, iPods, Bluetooth speakers, and washer and dryer; we lacked none of the comforts of home. We were also pleased to find an outdoor closet with beach chairs, snorkel mask and fins, and a body board. Our favorite part was enjoying our meals on the spacious lanai (equipped with a BBQ) and watching the surfers every morning and the sun set every evening. One of the best places to snorkel on the island is just about 200 yards south of the cottage and in view from the lanai. My wife and I have created some great memories here and will surely miss it when we return home. We would gladly return and recommend this very special place to our friends and family.

“Unwind in Paradise”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife and I spent 9 days in at this beautiful house. It was our first time on the big island of Hawaii and there was lots to explore: beaches, volcanoes, snorkeling, and more. But our favorite thing was hanging out on the beautiful deck (called a Lanai) and watching the surfers, the sunset, and the breaking waves. The view is paradise and I missed it the very first day we returned home!

Ron and Pam are amazing hosts, gifted in hospitality. Every detail was attended to. We were impressed with all the Kitchen Aid appliances and made fresh smoothies with local fruit every day. We loved that they provided snorkels and fins, a yoga mat to use on the outdoor patio overlooking the waves, beach towels and a beach chair, and a 5-minute walk from your front door is seriously one of the best beaches on the island for snorkeling and surfing. I even rented a surfboard for $20 and paddled out for some waves.

We also really loved that this house was close to anywhere we wanted to go, but away from the resort scene. All you hear at night is the sound of the crashing waves, which I have to admit was louder than I expected, but I instantly missed it when I came home. This bungalow is an ideal place to unwind from the stresses of life, rest, and be refreshed!!!

“Best way to experience The Big Island!”
Reviewed 15 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The rating and reviews for this absolutely immaculate property speak for themselves. My wife and I spent seven wonderful and relaxing days at Kona Moana Hale for our anniversary. Upon arrival from a long travel day, we were greeted with a meticulously clean home, beautiful ocean views, a gentle ocean breeze, and soft Hawaiian music. Walking out onto the deck, which overlooks the ocean and a small nearby beach, almost instantly puts you into an island state of bliss. This home has everything you need if you don't want to leave during your stay (you will not have a better view of the ocean from any restaurant on the island). It also has all of the tools you will need for an enjoyable beach day. We felt that we were completely at home during our stay.

It is obvious that the owner, Ron, takes great pride in providing a great experience for vacationers. He made himself available for any inquiries and responded to emails or phone calls very quickly, going out of his way to ensure our experience was awesome!

I would recommend this home to anyone looking for an ocean front Hawaiian experience!

“Doesn’t get better than this!”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

In a word – FANTASTIC! A beautiful romantic cottage right on the ocean (there is oceanfront and then there is this cottage almost on the ocean) – sitting in the living area looking out the window feels like you’re on a cruise ship. The cottage is tastefully decorated with high end appliances, with the comforts of home and ALL the amenities you can think of! And that LANAI – we spent mornings afternoons and evenings here. Oh, did I mention this cottage is IMMACULATE – I am an extremely fussy person and I was impressed!!
And, Ron (the owner) is so nice and easy to work with – thank you, thank you, thank you for a heavenly vacation!!

“Better than I could ever imagine!”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My girlfriend and I did a girls vacation here and we died walking in and seeing the view with the Hawaiian music playing as we entered! It was gorgeous, and looks exactly like the photos. I honestly don't think you can beat the price considering the location. It is walking distance to one of the best snorkeling spots on the island, as well as a surfing and paddle board rental shack, which is the best priced on the West Side of the island. We didn't need to find a place to watch the sunset because we could do it drinking wine from the porch, and at night we listened to the waves crashing ON the house! Not to worry, there are safety features in case of big waves so you never feel in danger. We had huge waves and pouring rain, and slept like newborn babes.

Bonus: the kitchen has EVERYTHING you need! Even two kinds of coffee brewing methods and a dishwasher, and every utensil you can think of.

“5-Star Stay”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is the vacation rental equivalent of a 5-Star resort. Convenient location, wonderful view from the deck, very comfortable, private with loads of thoughtful amenities, supplies and touches.
