The space
Are you looking for a vacation where you pull into a small residential neighborhood, see how life is lived here at 900 ft elevation just outside of the Kona Village?
Then you will love the Harbor View Hale that is nestled in a very tight knit community! It is a private 500 sq ft, 1 Bedroom apartment located in the lower part of our house only shared walls with a laundry room and a mostly unused guest bedroom to our part of the house and its private entrance.

We have renovated this one Bedroom with all our love and our utmost priority was to provide you a seamless, worry free vacation with all the luxuries we could fit in. When we picked out materials, appliances, linens and furniture... the priority was always quality, cohesiveness as supposed to what was the cheapest. We are looking for guests who appreciate quality.

From the Harbor View Hale it is only a 7 minute ride by CAR to Kona town center where you will be able to get groceries, dining, beach activities (SUP, Kayak, Parasail, glass bottom boat, snorkeling, swimming, etc), banks, gas stations, happy hours, pharmacy, parks, tours etc.
The closest beach is in town ( Magic Sands, Kona Pier, Old Airport), however our favorite beach "KUA BAY" is just 15 minutes down the "Queen K" highway up north. However the west side of the Big Island is lined with spectacular beaches from 10 minutes away, to all the way up north where you will drive 50 minutes to an hour.
The closest and very nice coffee farm is just 5 minutes up on Mamalahoa Hwy. "Hula Daddy" or "UCC Coffee"
There is a great beginners snorkel spot in town called Kahalu'u. You can get your first snorkel experience here... if you are more advanced, you can go down south to 2 Step beach, where also in the early morning you may see some dolphins playing in the water.
The Airport is 15 minutes away, just far enough that we don't hear or see it. :-)
The Kona Marina, you can see from your lanai and is about 5-7 minutes down the hill. This is where many of the dolphin, manta ray, snorkel, deep see fishing trips depart from. To the right of the marina is an old Hawaiian holy ground, where you will often encounter sea turtles.
The neighborhood is called Kealakehe or "Harbor View". There is an elementary school about 2 streets away, many families live in this area. We live our daily life here in this house as well, so daily common activities happen. :-)

Saima and I followed our dream and moved to the Big Island of Hawaii in 2015. It has always been our vision to own and operate a vacation rental the way that we feel it should be done. We have done most of our past years of traveling through vacation rentals. Once you talk to me (Jaan) you will quickly tell that I do have an accent. My roots take me back to Germany, where I was born and raised, I speak German fluently and would always love to welcome travelers from my previous home as well! Saima and I both love animals like our dogs, our cat and all wild creatures here on this lush island. We enjoy water sports, hiking, we love gardening and we do many crafts and hobbies ...
