About this listing
Located in South Kona, this Kona Paradise home is a wonderful place to come relax, cook a nice meal and watch the sunset on our enclosed covered lanai. Enjoy our very peaceful 2 bd/2ba home. Pebble Beach is just a short drive down the hill where one can swim and snorkel as well as hike the King's Trail along the coast. Hookena Beach is just 5 miles north and is often the location where the dolphins come to play. We are about a 45 minute drive through beautiful coffee farm lands to the town of Kailua-Kona. Volcanoes National Park and Green Sands Beach is about an 1 hr to 1.5 hours south.
The house has a large flat screen TV with a netflix account for movie watching. Private Bathroom and King size bed in Master bedroom with views of the ocean from the lanai. Kitchen comes equipped with the Ninja blender ( great for making smoothies or mango margaritas!!)
What else can I say except that this house is truly a wonderful place to relax.
You will have access to the entire house for yourself. House is located at dead end street with no other houses to the right or in front. Very quiet and peaceful location.
Interaction with Guests
We try our best to welcome guests from the beginning in order to show details regarding the house. Depending on length of stay, we also make an effort to furfill the drinking water bottles.
Kona Paradise is a very safe and clean neighborhood. Access to Pebble beach at bottom of hill is one of my favorite beaches. Sometimes it is a bit rough and the current is to strong to swim in but one can always stay at the shore and let the waves roll you around on the pebbles. Very special and fun! Also some nice hiking along the coast line to the left. You are guaranteed to see some wild goats.
Unfortunately, the Big Island does not have very public transit. It is a must to have a car for getting around.
Other Things to Note
The closest grocery store is about 20 minutes north in the heart of Captain Cook called Choicemart. Wonderful selection of local fresh food. Every Sunday morning till 2pm, is a wonderful farmers market located just one block north of Choicemart. Also, located about one mile south on the main highway from the top of Kona paradise subdivision is a nice fruit stand situated on left side of road. Nice selection with good prices.
Number one house rule is to relax and enjoy!
Do not drink tap water- okay for taking showers or brushing teeth. We are on water catchment. We provide drinking water in bottles in kitchen. Since we are dependent on the rain for water, we ask guests to be mindful of water use. Also, electricity comes at a very high price so we also ask guests to be mindful of this too. We have a clothes line under house for hang drying clothes.
Prefer for furniture to not be moved as well as no large parties.
Delphine and her father were absolutely amazing hosts. we had to reschedule due and Delphine was helpful through the entire process.
Their house is amazing, the view is just breathtaking. We came in one of the hottest summers in Hawaii and even though there is no air conditioning it was very comfortable in their home due to their great window circulation. It was also great that they had so many snorkeling and body board equipments. This made our trip to the beaches even better.
Pebble beach was great, amazing place to snorkel! We also went diving with the mantas which is very recommendable.
Listing Description is accurate.
Although big island has so much fun to do, you even want to spend half day just in the house and relax.
We arrived to a clean house with a beautiful view of the Pacific overlooking about eight blocks of tropical colored roof tops descending steeply to the shore.
Water was provided for the plumbing from a cistern which was fine. Ten gallons of drinking water were provided in the form of two five-gallon bottles and a dispenser, an ample supply that we barely used a gallon of in our 3 night stay.
The beach at the bottom of the neighborhood was composed of smoothly rounded black sea pebbles made from volcanic rock that felt very good to bare feet. They made a beautiful sound as they rolled up and down with the shore break. Sunsets are very romantic and spectacular!
Be sure to inquire about the beautiful snorkeling beach up the coast between the house and Captain Cook. It's right next to the fort and has very beautiful coral and diverse sea life. I swam with a leather-back turtle! All manner of beach going and snorkeling gear are provided. There were even several different sizes of booties to choose from so I didn't even chafe my feet!
We had a beautiful drive around to Volcano. Would definitely recommend this beautiful house to anyone looking for some peace and quiet with a beautiful view!
Agreable sejour, avec une superbe vue sur la mer permettant de profiter du coucher du soleil.
Belle maison situee dans un endroit tres calme, paisible.
La mise a disposition d'objets de plages tels que glaciere, chaise, bodyboard, PMT ... est un plus.
Tres bonne connexion internet.
Guy le proprietaire est tres sympatique.
Le 1er supermarche est a 20min de voiture, donc un peu loin.
Le frigo etait sale a notre arrivee.
La salle de bain a rafraichir.
Merci pour tout.
Super Wegbeschreibung und beste Einführung von Guy (Delphine's Vater). Im Haus ist alles vorhanden - auch für an den Strand! Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und die Aussicht und Ruhe ist so erholsam... Ideal für alle Unternehmungen - Distanzen nicht unterschätzen - vor allem für Schweizer Verhältnisse :-)) Big Island is big. Sehr empfehlenswert. Mahalo für alles.
Guy is an outstanding host and the house is truly a Hawaiian paradise. I will definitely return!
Fantastic little house with beautiful surroundings and a sea view. Guy was a very helpful host and made our stay very pleasant. Good location for visiting the volcano and still within reach of Kona and Mauna Kea. Thanks!
About the Host, Delphine
I'm originally from Paris, France but grew up in Washington State where I learned to appreciate the beautiful outdoors. Now I live on the Big Island of Hawaii which is an amazing place to enjoy what nature has to offer. I love to hike, swim, cook, dance, yoga and just simply relax with a glass of rose wine in my hand and watch the sunsets!
