Are you traveling to Hawaii Island and looking for a great place to stay? I have friends with vacation condos and homes that would love to connect with you directly to save AirBnB and VRBO fees and pass those savings on to you! If you found this page through my work on "365 Things to Do in Kona" on Facebook, these owners are fellow Big Island devotees and I can attest to their love of this island, Aloha Spirit and hospitality in their homes.

Instead of getting lost looking for a place to stay on the "big sites", support the 365Kona hui of vacation property owners and check out these properties based on where you would like to stay on the island! Mahalo!

Oceanfront Home Overlooking Kahala'u Bay

Hale Lula O' Nai'a at Kahala'u Bay

Average price per night: $500

Have you ever wanted the quintessential ocean front vacation experience complete with swinging under a palm tree while waves crash nearby? We had a chance to stay in this gorgeous home for four days and I did not want to leave!

Waking up to the sun coming over the waves and watching the sunset in the evening on the lanai while sipping a glass of chardonnay was heaven. Take a look at the video and you can check availability at

Private Cottage in Palisades

My friend Ania Noll, owns a cottage (urban tree house if you will) that she and her husband renovated into a luxury hideaway behind her main house in Kona Palisades. Ania is a great hostess and offers lots of inside tips on enjoying your stay in Kona.

The cottage is a charming studio and is centrally located - 15 min away by car from the Kailua Kona Village ( the heart of the town). Less than 10 min away from Kona Airport, 15 min away from Kua Bay beach! Enjoy your stay in this high end fully furnished studio with queen-sized bed, twin sofa sleeper and twin ottoman. Here is the listing for more photos and calendar. 

$105 a night for the stand alone pool cottage and Ania also has a small studio under her home for rent (photo on the right is from that studio) for only $85 a night. Contact Ania for availability. [email protected]
