It is near good beaches and shopping and only 15 minutes to Kona town and has a panoramic view of Kona, sunsets, and the ocean.

The home features 2 custom swimming pools, one for children and a large kidney shaped pool surrounded by lava rocks and separated by 3 lav rock waterfalls falling into the big pool.
There is a large koi pond and waterfalls at the front entrance to the home with covered parking under the Portico.
Relax in the hot tub at night and you can clearly see the stars while an intoxicating fragrance of Angel Trumpet trees floats gently on the night breeze.
There are 3 bedrooms on the upper level - a large master bedroom with a king size 4-poster bed (pillow top mattress and down pillows). An oval jetted tub in the master bath and private deck with 180-ocean view for relaxation and privacy. Two other bedrooms upstairs have queen 4 poster beds with pillow top mattresses & down pillows--one has a private deck and they share a full bath. (All bedrooms have TV/cable).
On the main level there are 3 bedrooms, one with a king size rattan Tommy Bahama poster bed--also pillow top & down, and a bedroom with queen bed with pillow top mattress. In addtion there is an office/bedroom with 2 sofa/beds that make into full beds, with spring mattresses and a single bed. These bedrooms share one full bath. There is no air conditioning as it is always about 75-80 degrees and breezy with ceiling fans.
There is also a separate cottage for a 7th bedroom attached to the home available for rent. It is a studio with 3/4 bath, king bed, kitchen, living room, tv, covered lanai and ocean view). Perfect for that couple that wants a little more privacy. The cottage is additional fee of $100/night
In the living room you'll find an HDTV with comfortable tropical sea grass furniture, formal dining room with seating for 10-12. For evening entertainment, you can enjoy the pool table situated in front of a gas floor to ceiling fireplace made with true Lapohepohe lava stones.
Entertaining is a breeze in the huge kitchen, fully equipped for all your needs. It has icemaker, toaster oven, microwave, gas cook top, oven, coffee grinder, blender, mixer, and all the cooking utensils and dishware for service for 12. The kitchen and living room open onto a large tiled (full length of the house) lanai, where you most likely will spend your time watching the sunset or surf and the cruise ships coming into Kona Harbor or listening to the birds and watching the horses graze peacefully on the remaining four acre of our estate surrounding the home.
The 5 acres is situated in the well know "Kona coffee belt" and has banana, grapefruit, lemon, avocado, and papaya trees. The grounds are planted with Hawaiiana flora (hibiscus, poinsettia, anthodium, orchids, tree ferns, ginger, night blooming jasmine, coconut trees, gardenia and money trees. The pasture has a miniature cow, sheep and goats to feed - what fun!
The property is only 15 min drive to town (Safeway, Wallmart) and 15 to Costco and 16 to Airport (KOA) because it's centrally located dead center where you can see the cruise ship come into Kona harbor. There is a wonderful kids beach called Kukio (in a gated community, but public beach) onhly 15-20 min away from the house)

This house was perfect for our family of nine.We spent a week there. The location was perfect. It is close to shopping and the beach. Each of the 6 bedrooms has a large attached bathroom. We took turns cooking in the spacious kitchen every night. The pool was just right for the 7 and 10 year old boys and the adults. It is located in a nice, convenient, and safe neighborhood. I would love to go there next year.
"This was a great rental for our large family group."

We had 9 people in our party including our two grandchildren under the age of 2, our son and daughter and their spouses, my mom and my wife and I. We all had plenty of room to have our privacy when we wanted it but a nicely equipped kitchen and large dining area to have full family get togethers. The rental was convenient to all of the sites in and around Kona and the pool, although small, was a welcome amenity. The only negative was the abundance of signs warning against various abuses like too much noise or protecting the wood floors but with a place this nice, the owners obviously wanted to keep it that way. If we visit Kona again, we will definitely go back to this rental.
