Everything about our stay at Kona Moana Hale was perfect. From the moment my wife and I walked into the house, we were blown away by the comfort, attention to detail, and ambience created by the incredibly kind and helpful hosts. Ron and Pam do a great job of making you feel welcome in their lovely home and equip you with everything you can possibly think of during your stay. They definitely go the extra mile! They were more than helpful in accommodating requests and answering questions on how things worked in the house. A binder of restaurants and activities personally curated by the hosts was used often when planning our days. However, our favorite moments were relaxing, reading books, and listening to music on the lanai--hands down! The breathtaking panoramic views and the calming sounds of ocean waves always made it difficult for us to leave the house.
My wife and I left KMH feeling rejuvenated and inspired. This experience was truly unforgettable and surpassed all of our expectations. When we come back to the Big Island in the future, we will definitely hope this place is available for us to stay!
Fabulous in ever aspect. Sunsets, views and relaxation. Best part of the trip to the Big Island. Great location for access to key activities.
This was probably one of the best (if not the best weeks) of mine and my husband’s lives. Kona Moana Hale is absolutely incredible. The view is insane - waking up every morning to the ocean and the sound of the waves hitting the rocks below the lanai was a dream. The house itself is so comfortable and had everything we needed.. Ron and Pam really know how to make their guests feel at home! We arrived to a beautiful fruit basket (filled with one the best mangos and pineapples we have EVER had) and the sound of classic Hawaiian music. Throughout the week, we found that the house has everything we could need for a perfect Kona vacation: beach chairs and an umbrella, snorkeling gear, towels, BBQ utensils (and a grill), and so much more. This home is truly a beautiful gift and we couldn’t recommend it more! It is situatated close to some great restaurants (Holuakoa Garden and Cafe, Basik Cafe, and Daylight Minds Coffee being a few of our favorites), and within walking distance to a beautiful beach with great snorkeling. We wish we could stay here forever! Thanks Ron + Palm for giving us a week we’ll never forget!
Kona Moana Hale was amazing! It is located mere feet from the ocean, with private access to the water, and is only a 1/4 mile from one of the top-rated snorkeling beaches on the Big Island. The house itself is convenient, extremely clean, and well-appointed with everything you need for your stay, including new appliances and furniture, and indoor/outdoor speakers with bluetooth capability. It's a short drive to downtown Kailua-Kona, which boasts restaurants, shops, and art galleries, and about 30 minutes to the airport. Get ready to see someone of the best sunsets in the world!
Kona Moana Hale (translated means leeward side southwest-facing ocean house) is truly a place to experience on The Big Island. There is a real magic about this place. Once you arrive you know there is something different and special—a place which captures the island spirit, attitude, and the majestic beauty of Hawaii. Located in south Kailua-Kona, there is great access to everything in Kona within 10 minutes. However, there is a sense of a “home” feel and privacy right on the water at this place. Spending time overlooking the crashing waves, watching surfers &
whales, and a 180-degree view of the ocean and setting sun, one will find themself losing all sense of time here (enjoying a long sunset fading into the ocean should be on anyone’s Hawaii bucket list). This scenery was so amazing, that my wife and I decided to spend most—if not all—our evenings and dinners on the patio/deck. The residence is fully loaded and excellent quality with everything right where you need or expect it. Ron and Pam are awesome and did an amazing job of creating such a special place for a great Hawaiian vacation experience. Thank you!!! …Highly recommend you take an opportunity to experience some time at KMH. Your vacationing soul will not be disappointed!
