Top 4 Vacation Rentals For Large Groups in Kailua Kona


Are you looking for lodging for a large group of people in Kailua Kona and don’t want to be on top of each other in one large home? THE VILLA COLLECTION, in the exclusive gated community of Kona Plantation Estates, offers three homes within walking distance of one another for your group.

Each luxury residence offers grand size rooms, numerous bedrooms and baths, big screen TV’s, gourmet kitchens with state of the art appliances, and lots of extras. Need dining for a dozen? Each home has the ability to host everyone on the lanai!  Large private pools, bubbling spas, and spacious verandas are just the beginning. Tennis anyone? This small gated community has its own tennis court.  The private neighborhood is just 10 minutes from the airport, sandy beaches and the heart of town.

A 365Kona personal recommendation for my friends who own two of these homes and manage two others, this group of homes is a fantastic way to host reunions, weddings, etc where you need to be in close proximity of one another, but desire your privacy, as well. All of these homes offer luxury accommodations and the property manager is top notch and greets you at the property.

Enter the Shangri-la arch gate, stroll over the water on hand-crafted wooden bridge, and enter the high arched-glass-cut front doors.  Immediately your view is directed through the great room, across the marble floor and out onto the sprawling veranda, to witness a vast and magnificent vista of greener-than-green jungle mountains and an endless azure blue sea. As you take in the peace and tranquility, the only sounds you hear are the soft cries of exotic Hawaiian birds and the rustle of  swaying palm trees. All this magnificence frames a grand size “infinity” pool and your own private, waterfall spa. There is even a natural lava fresh water shower close by and a Mai Tai bar, just off pool.
