This house is something so wonderful that it has to be experienced for yourself. We went for a vacation and were completely overwhelmed at how beautiful and peaceful this home is. Whether you are watching the sunset or drinking coffee in the morning while you listen to the waves, the lanai is the perfect place to soak in the beauty of the island. On a practical note, they have everything you could need in this house: plenty of kitchen gadgets, a grill outside, amazing appliances so that you can cook while you are there, tons of seating, an amazing bed (crazy comfortable), all the little details (lots of toiletries provided as well as all kinds of water gear), tons of towels, washer and dryer, etc. They think of everything. The location can not be beaten as you are pretty central to everything. Walking distance from a fantastic beach, and lots of beautiful beaches along the way into town when you need groceries or want to go out for a drive or restaurant. This home is a must if you are staying on the big island. There's a little bit of magic in the air there :) Mahalo!
We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Kona Moana Hale (again) and were thrilled to find that it continues to be such a magical place. Everything shown on the photos is exactly true to the property. What prospective guests cannot grasp from the description is the entire experience the property provides. The owners continue to take great attention to detail. From the arrival fruit basket to the fresh flower arrangements to the spotless interior along with the provided beach amenities, every need is met. Thank you Ron and Pam for sharing your incredible home with us. Our time here was well spent and exactly what our spirits needed. We look forward to returning in the future - in the interim we extend our best wishes to both of you.
Our stay at Kona Moana Kale was so beautiful and relaxing! The home itself was lovely and inviting. There was fresh tropical fruit on the counter and beautiful floral arrangements throughout the home upon arrival. We woke up each morning and enjoyed banana bread and Kona coffee on the lanai while watching surfers, paddle boarders, and dolphins swimming nearby! The kitchen is fully stocked with every appliance and utensil you will need and we enjoyed cooking breakfast while listening to Hawaiian music each morning. We went snorkeling several times in the bay- just a short jot down the road with the scuba gear provided! The rental shop is just down the street for paddle board and surf board rentals. There are several grocery stores and farmer's markets close by, as well as lots of great restaurants! Even though Hawaii provides so many fun things to see and do, we always made sure we were back on the lanai to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets each evening! We truly never wanted to return home! We had an unforgettable time and felt so thankful for such a wonderful place to find rest, peace and relaxation. It was paradise!! Mahalo!
Awesome view from the lanai. The house is immaculate and the location is ideal for snorkeling and exploring the island. The attention to detail is obvious and the air conditioned bedroom was a plus.
This house is truly magical, we had an amazing time staying here. You feel like you are a part of the ocean. It's on such a quiet and tranquil bay. Every morning we took a short walk and went snorkeling, we saw tons of gorgeous fish, urchins, coral and Sea Turtles!!! A swell was in so there was lots of surfing fun to be had and everyone in the water was so friendly. The house is impeccably clean and the owners have thought of absolutely everything you could need. We explored all over the island but were always so happy to come back to our beautiful spot on the lanai. It's the perfect spot to watch the sunset. It's so private, you feel like you're getting your own personal sunset show every night! Also, I've never slept so well. The bed is so comfortable and the sounds of the waves lull you to sleep. I can't recommend this place enough!
We arrived at the house and were taken in immediately by the incredible views of the bay and the ocean from the living room and porch. The presentation of the house was really well done, very clean and well taken care of, and the modest size of the place never felt small because you are surrounded by windows showing those views of the pacific. Great kitchen, bbq, plenty of areas to sit and eat as a family, or sit by your self with a book and a glass of wine and take it all in. I surfed the whole week we were at the house and the fun point break of Kahalu'u is feet from the porch. Great surf shop a few doors down to rent boards. Minutes from a grocery store, farmers market, restaurants and other fun places but when you're on the porch you are in your own world, on a quiet island within the island. I can't recommend this house enough and we will definately be back.
We have just returned from an amazing holiday. The oceanfront cottage is stunning with everything you need. So lucky that we got to spend 11 nights there! Spent plenty of time on the lanai watching waves, sunsets, and surfers. It's within walking distance of a great snorkelling spot and not far from town. Thank you Ron & Pam. Better than anything we could have imagined.
