This stunning home is beautifully appointed with comfortable furniture and upscale finishes such as koa wood, slate and granite. The home design merges indoors with outdoors; the living and dining area open to a large comfortably furnished "oceanfront lanai". You won't want to leave the lanai!

The main floor is an open design with high ceilings and flows through a well-equipped gourmet kitchen with wet bar, formal dining area, & living/media area that opens on three sides to a large covered lanai for relaxing or entertaining. The kitchen is well stocked to meet the needs of the most discriminate chef, featuring both a convection oven and conventional oven and cooktop. The wet bar is a convenient stop on the way to the formal dining area or outdoor lanai dining and grill. The large master bedroom, highlighted with a king bed and luxury bathroom & walk-in closet, opens to the lanai. The laundry room and half bath complete the main floor.

We traveled to Kona and rented this home for 8 days Dec 2020. We had a group of 8 family members and the house had plenty of rooms for all. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need , so great. The view of the ocean and proximity to Keiki beach was perfect. We will definitely stay here again.

Stunning views

Great house with stunning views. Wonderful aesthetics. Enjoyed the hot tub and snorkeling in the cove. Can't get around the fact that there are folks on all sides enjoying the proximity to the water and location but does not compromise the excellent property

Amazing spot

Exceeded expectations for our six-day stay August 19-25 with our group of eight at Kona Bay Estates 23! Upon arrival we were so pleased with the beauty and spaciousness of the home and the layout, furnishings, proximity to the beach, view of the ocean, well-stocked kitchen, etc. In addition to the beach items we brought, we also found beach toys for the kids in the storage bin on the side of the beautiful lanai, and headed to the sandy beach via the little stone wall that borders the property. For indoors, there is a supply of games to play and books to read, should you need them. Property is close to restaurants and excursion launch sites - could even walk to some if we wanted to. We saw amazing sunset views! Beds were comfortable and bedrooms had separate thermostats so each couple could adjust to their preference. On our last day there, we took some time to just sit on the lanai, gaze and listen to the ocean, staying until the very last minute because we didn't want to leave. We have a couple of suggestions if the owners are looking to improve on almost perfection - a ceiling fan on the lanai would be great for those toasty days, and a step at the wall would help older, less agile people like me:) So happy we picked your place!

Gorgeous Beach House!

Close to town but private enough to be peaceful! And the little beach was 50 feet from our back door! We also got to know the very nice neighborhood security guard (Judy) who showed us around, gave us tips on things to see nearby and always had a smile for us! Great option all around!

Completely awesome house on so many levels!

This property is absolutely fantastic! It was so great with our 20 and 22 yr old as well and they enjoyed it. We even had extra room for another family if we wanted. The layout was great and the VIEWS are spectacular! This is a must for families or couples visiting Kona! Thank you for such a great time and place!

This home did not disappoint, it was the perfect way to end our last week in Hawaii. It was SO very clean and well-organized. The cabinets are full of cooking gadgets, bowls, tupperware, etc. I also really liked that there was a beverage fridge so all the sparkling water and juices did not take up the actual fridge. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and hanging out on the spacious lanai. The hot tub was amazing as well! The beds were super comfortable. Getting in and out of the private community was very easy. It's location is also great - we were close to the things that mattered to us. We would stay here again 100%!

Our family enjoyed this beautiful home so much! Every thing about it was perfect, we enjoyed coffee every morning on the Lanai to dinner in the evenings, listening to the ocean and watching the gorgeous sunsets. Thank you for a vacation that we will all never forget.

Thanks for being a great host.

We will be staying here again in the future without a doubt.

What's not to love about this property! You get what you pay for, and what you get with this home is the best of Kona locations. Keiki Ponds is the protected family beach 100 steps from the lanai, and we felt we didn't need to go anywhere else with our family to enjoy Kona's shores. The house has a plethora of beach towels, two large beach umbrellas, chairs and toys to spend the whole day enjoying the sandy beach. The crashing ocean on the other side of the lava rocks was amazing, and the mornings drinking coffee outside were wonderful. The house is even larger than shown in the photos, if possible, and was well-stocked. The description of the house was accurate, except there are also trundle beds under the two bunk beds and there's a brand new pack n play portable crib in the upstairs closet. The house is located in a great, safe, gated community that was a 12 minute drive to the downtown Kona area. Large private driveway for parking, easy to find location, good list of recommended vendors (we snorkeled with manta rays and dolphins with Jack's Diving Locker, which was on their list and fabulous). Kona Coast Vacations reached out several times before our trip to offer assistance and their concierge services, which we didn't use but appreciated. We will be staying here again in the future without a doubt.

Our vacation was awesome. We had not been to the Big Island in many years and were surprised in the changes we found especially around the Kona area. Not a little "burg" anymore. The Kona Bay Estates 23 home was beautiful and so perfect for our family. We were NOT ready to leave. We explored beaches, the Volcano, green sand beach, black sand beach, Wiamia, Keck Observatory, Captain Cook's momument - we walked, hiked, kayaked, snorkeled and in general enjoyed our time at the house and nearby beach. We loved it! Thank you so much. Date of Stay: 12/13/17 to 12/20/17

This house and its location just by keiki beach with its calm water pool which is perfect for young kids, was perfect for us. We spent a week there with 7 people, including a 3 year old and a 4 year old.
If we go to the west side of the Big Island again, I'm sure we would book this same place again.

Perfect location!

This house is so beautiful and open!! Every morning we sat out watching the waves from the lanai while drinking our coffee. We had more than enough room for everyone. The house is just a short walk from town and the keiki pools are right out back. I need to figure out how to get back to this house more often!!

Amazing home and location (4.8/5.0)

We stayed this past week in this home with my husband and my three teenage sons. It was a beautiful well equipped home. The lanai and view were incredible. We played games most nights on the lanai listening to the waves crashing behind us and also enjoyed coffee in the mornings in the same incredible setting. It was very warm when we were there and the home did have AC which was an unexpected bonus for us. We loved the closeness to the airport and the town. There was shopping for groceries very close by (3 teenage boys) and we utilized the gas grill on the lanai as well. Another wonderful I loved was the master was on the main floor and additional bedrooms in the back of the home one flight up. All of the living space was beach side making for a very quiet place for the early risers as well as those sleeping later. We hope to stay there again some day.

Just what was needed

The property was as stated. No better words can I use to describe it. Truly spectacular. The only reason we didn't spend all of our time on the lanai is we had to eat. The kitchen had everything tool needed to make any dish we desired. With three markets to choose from just 3 minutes away any meal was a possibility. With the marina fifteen minutes north and Kona three minutes south all we wanted was near. We did receive what we paid for. Mahalo!
