Nestled in an exclusive gated community you will find this private villa overlooking the charming village of Kona. Panoramic ocean views span the horizon for as far as your eyes will take you. This property is considered to be in a favored zone due to the perfect elevation, climate and proximity to town and local attractions. Includes free long distance anywhere in North America and High speed Internet.
Though minutes from downtown Kona (bicycles provided), close to amenities like starbucks, large swimming pool, safeway, beaches and public pool; the home is tucked away on a secluded cul-de-sac high in the exclusive Malulani development to take advantage of ocean views and air flow from cool cross breezes.
Embrace a sense of peace the minute you walk through the door. The sun pours in through sky lights with high reaching windows offering a sense of openness to the surrounding gardens. The ocean view is simply mesmerising, with front row seats to watch the sea-side activities and cruise ships gliding by.
Villa By The Sea is both elegant and spacious, perfect for weekly or monthly stays with family, friends or couples seeking tranquility. A gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining. Our dining room has a table that extends to seat eight. The two bedrooms (plus queen hide-a-bed and King aerobed) will wow you with their openness to beauty.
You will love the space in the master bedroom which has a King-size bed, separate sitting area with desk, walk-in closet, flat screen TV and full bathroom with walk-in shower. It also leads to a private lanai, so you can view our tropical gardens from your bed. Each of the bedroom suites are enhanced with custom furnishings, quality linens and décor to create a mood of relaxation, tranquility and comfort. Best yet, the two full bathrooms (one has two sinks) lends to stress free mornings. Your senses will awaken to tropical flowers, bananas, papayas, lemons and mangoes right in your yard, and you will experience the flora and fauna of the big Island from the privacy of your lanais.
The living room is designed for relaxation with a large flat screen TV/sound system and quality furnishings. Movies, guides and cultural information are provided.
For beachgoers, we are stocked with snorkel gear, beach blankets, and coolers. We even have tennis and golf supplies, and bicycles for those who wish to cycle through town.

Best vacation home we encountered in our travels.The owners, Shannon and Neil have taken great pride and meticulous attention in providing the best and most delightful and memorable "Aloha" experience. The Villa is very comfortable, exceptionally clean and extremely well provisioned. It is located in a quiet, pleasant and secure environment. The interiors are tastefully and beautifully furnished. In addition, we were provided with very detailed and updated information/ recommendations regarding many interesting activities/places/eateries, which was extremely useful to first time visitors to Big Island, like ourselves. Shannon was always ready to answer any queries cheerfully and with alacrity. We liked it so much that we extended our stay. We would absolutely highly recommend this outstanding rental home and the exceptional owners, Shannon and Neil.

My family of 5 stayed at Villa by the Sea from Dec.22-29th 2012 and we all absolutely loved it. From the beginning of the rental process in February Shannon made everything so easy for us. She sent out information emails about the area and mailed us a postcard with all the pertinent information covering access etc. months in advance. The home itself is beautiful. It was spotless and there was everything we needed and more. In past rentals we've needed to run out for dish detergent or paper towels but at Shannon's everything was there with duplicates stacked in the garage if we ran out. The kitchen was stocked with everything from a crock pot and rice cooker to an assortment of spices and tupperware to pack things in the cooler (supplied of course) for a day at the beach. We used the bogie boards and beach towels (also provided)every day. There is a full size washer and dryer as well. We had coffee on the front lanai every morning which has a beautiful view of the ocean and the front garden that is home to 8 or 9 gecko's that came out to sun themselves as we relaxed. We wanted to get out for a bike ride on the two bikes provided but ran out of time.
I can honestly say that this was the best rental experience we've had.
Mahalo Mahalo for your kind words. We certainly hope you return.

We spent 2 weeks at the Villa by the Sea, and it was perfect! The house had everything we needed. Close to town, beaches, stores. The house was so nice it was hard to go home. We will be back soon and hope Villa by the Sea is our home when we are on the Big Island. Mahalo Shannon and Neil for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

We just returned this week from 5 days at the Kona Villa by the Sea home. It was wonderful! The house is in a beautiful, quiet and peaceful community. The house itself is immaculate, beautifully decorated and comfortable for our family of 6. The Cormmie's have thought of some very special perks that made a big difference for us. The providing of boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and bikes allowed us to travel lightly, but enjoy many things to a higher degree in Kona. Their list of things to do and restaurants and shops to access were also very helpful. Lastly, the price for the home was far cheaper than other comparables in Kona. In short the house provided the perfect get away place for our larger family to have an incredible time of rest and relaxation. We would be very inclined to stay their again. Thank you Shannon and Neil for making your home a place of rest and restoration for our family. A. Michel

We enjoyed a wonderful time in the Kona area thanks in part to the clean, nice, and well supported house we rented. The house had two comfy bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, and even toys for the beach. The patio and gardens in back are nice, but we loved the front porch where we watched the beautiful sunsets. This house is about a mile from town which worked well for us. With such a great house we were able to focus on our trips around the island to enjoy. Everything on offer. We would highly recommend staying here.
