About this listing

The location of the house is my choice for the best of island life, after living here for 26 years. The Kona side of the island has the best sandy beaches, where the Hilo and Puna side are rocky. I'm in the best location for beaches north and south.

The space

Enjoy this beautiful, spacious ocean view bedroom with its own master bath, large deep tub, and separate walk in shower. Less than 10 minutes from the airport, 3 mi. up the mountain, it is perfectly situated between the best beaches to the north and south of the gold coast of Kona. The elevation is perfect for escaping the heat of downtown and cooling off after a day at the beach. There is plenty of light, and breezes flow through from large sliding glass doors that open out to an expansive ocean view lanai, with garden view and your private table and chairs for that morning cup of Kona coffee. You can relax or meditate with the sun setting over the ocean. You can also enjoy dining on the shared portion of the lanai, also with a sweeping ocean view. There's a porch swing and a view of the tropical garden as well. You will share your space with me, the owner. I have my own private master bedroom and bath on the opposite side of the house, separated by a big living room, double door entry, and a large, convenient kitchen with all that you might need to prepare meals. There is a gas stove and oven, large double door refrigerator with ice maker and water dispenser in the door. The double sink has a 4 stage reverse osmosis water filter. If you're eco conscious, you can join in the household composting process, helping to make soil for the garden, and cook with the herbs grown there.
I have lived on the island for 24 years and have chosen the location because of the views, and the elevation which is perfect for gardening and my one coffee tree. There are limes almost year round, and delicious tangelos and oranges in season. It is also perfectly located mid way between the best beaches and attractions. My favorite beach is just 10 minutes away. Kailua-Kona is just 15 minutes from the house and shopping and our Costco (cheapest gas) even closer. I will be your personal informational guide throughout your stay, helping you to feel the Heart of Hawaii throughout your adventures.

Guest access

The ocean view is amazing and the rooms are spacious and light, with ocean breezes. It is a quiet and peaceful area for relaxing and a good night's sleep in the comfortable queen size bed. There is snorkel and beach gear available, and I can help with island information.

Interaction with guests

I am on property with you and I make myself available for your island plans and questions you might have. I like sharing with my guests but I will also respect your privacy. I want you to feel at home away from home!

If you're looking for a place near Kailua-Kona, look no further. About 10 min drive from town. Me and my husband absolutely loved our stay with Star and Jojo. Made breakfast in the morning from eggs, milk, coffee, fruit that she provided for us. The lanai is huge and is so nice to hang out in the evening to watch the sunset. The room is just perfect, so clean and cozy. Big shower and 2 sink bath in bathroom. Star gave us our privacy when we wanted it. Enjoyed our conversations on the lanai :) Birds and rooster starts signing around 4:30 so bring earplugs. Star gave us many recommendations on were to go based on what we wanted to do. She provided snorkelling gear, chairs, aloe vera when we needed it, bottle water... Really didn't want to leave! I highly recommend this place! Thanks again!

Star's home is conveniently located, extremely clean and quiet. The bedroom has an incredible ocean view and patio access, is equipped with full bath, and is very private. Star is a warm and generous host, and made us feel very at home during our stay in Kona. The home is conveniently located minutes to the airport and is a close drive to restaurants and ocean activities. A great value and highly recommended.

I am a retired preschool teacher, still working and living an incredible life of 25 years in Kailua-Kona. I have a wonderful dog named JoJo who is companion to my adventures. I love the beaches, snorkeling, and hiking. Just about anything outdoors makes me happy. I love sharing what I love about the island with my guests. I can help you tailor your vacation to be the memory of a great adventure!
