Kona Dreams is a private retreat in Captain Cook, 35 miles south of Kona Airport. An easy drive on highways 19 & 11 along the dramatic coastline takes you past Kailua-Kona, to history rich Keauhou, Kealakekua, Captain Cook, and Honaunau, through the Big Island’s fertile agricultural region, where coffee grows alongside macadamia, cacao, vanilla beans, avocado, and an endless feast of tree ripened fruit.
A clearly marked turn takes you from an elevation of 1,500 ft into the quiet Kona Paradise community, right down to sea level and the ocean. Park your car and take less than 60 seconds to walk to the ocean. Look for turtles or even a monk seal resting on the beautiful black lava pebble beach.
The home was designed to capture every breeze. The interior is decorated with artwork the owners collected during their travels around the Pacific Rim. A spacious living area is equipped with a new flat screen TV, media player, games, guidebooks, and leisure reading. Comfortable furniture invites you to relax under the cathedral ceiling supported by solid ohia logs.

Wifi, high-speed broadband, and free telephone calls to the mainland US, Canada, and Guam keep you wired and connected. A separate living area with a full bath that sleeps up to 3 more guests is occasionally available.

The Waikoloa Beach is superb. You can do snorkeling. We can see turtles. We are also well located for when we went to the other beaches to the north and also Kona.

Hale Pua (“House of Flowers”) features five king bedrooms plus one bunkroom with four twin beds. This special home is maybe the only 6 bedroom/6 full bath luxury oceanfront home for vacation rental on the Kona Coast. Hale Pua is a coastal oasis with high-end comforts and details throughout. While this privately-owned home works wonderfully for large gatherings, it is just as warm & welcoming for several couples or a smaller family group.
The home boasts full baths for every bedroom, and a sprawling sea-facing great room with easy access to the kitchen and wetbar. Multiple wall-to-wall glass sliding doors on the oceanside allow trade winds to gently flow while enjoying the stunning water and sunset views. You can SEE or HEAR the ocean from nearly every room!
The spacious lanai with waterfall pool and spa extends the full length of the house along the oceanfront. A lush stretch of yard is the only separation between the rolling surf against the lava rock wall and the home’s lanai.
Just a 50 foot walk from the lanai along a wide rock wall is a small sandy beach with gentle entry to abundant tide pools and out to the ocean for snorkeling, surfing or kayaking.
Your ocean view is unobstructed and stunning; no walking path between you and the sea which is the case in many local beachfront neighborhoods.
After a day of sun & fun, kids (or adults!) can chill out watching their favorite movie or enjoying a video game in the media room featuring leather home theater recliners, 70” Smart Samsung flat screen 3D TV, 3D viewing glasses, surround sound & Sony PlayStation/Blu-ray player. Many recent movies along with popular Play Station games are provided for your enjoyment.
The executive open-design dream kitchen features ocean view granite counter and dining room seating for 16 indoors, 8 outdoors. This chef-worthy kitchen is equipped with 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, 1 wine cooler, Subzero & Dacor appliances along with flatware & dishes to serve over 20 people.
Hale Pua is a special home that has been recently renovated with custom paint, window treatments, wall art and designer Restoration Hardware furniture. Each bedroom bears a fitting title in a brass doorplate, such as “Surf’s Up”, “Kona Coffee”, “Pua Suite” and so on. The Hawaiian bedroom décor showcases new linens, pillows and tropical touches that will make you smile. All bedrooms have flat screen TVs with cable.
The 2nd floor Master Suite, with panoramic ocean views, provides optimum whale and dolphin watching opportunities. Another guest suite is “Ohana” designed, also ocean view offering upstairs sleeping and separate downstairs living/sleeping with wall-to-wall sliders opening onto the lanai.
The baths are all full-size, three with double-sink vanities. Four of the six baths have very large tiled walk-in showers; the other two have shower tubs, one of those featuring a Jacuzzi. Vaulted beamed ceilings throughout the home, with finish work done in native Koa wood. The large laundry is centrally located in the home, featuring two new Whirlpool Duet full-size washers & two dryers.
Hale Pua is perfectly located; close enough for adults and kids to walk to Old Kona Town and the pier. Set back 130 feet from prestigious Alii Drive, behind a private remote-controlled gate, the setting is peaceful and private.
Part of Hale Pua's charm is its traditional Hawaiian coastal open-air design. The home has louvered and screened windows throughout and features large wall-to-wall sliding doors on the ocean side of the house - the prevailing trade winds from the west over the ocean and the mountain breezes from the east keep this home comfortable with ceiling fans and Vornado floor fans throughout.

I had a business trip planned for my supervisors of my construction company and this place worked out great. Big and comfortable house. The media room was great! The view and sunsets were spectacular. We even did some snorkeling and there was plenty to see. You could sit on the lanai and watch the dolphins jumping. The house was a little hot. No AC and Kona can get pretty warm. A few more portable fans would be good. But overall a great place in a very convineant location.Kailua Kona 8.8 miles

We recently stayed at this house and could not have found a more perfect rental for the price. We were a group of 17 (9 Adults/8 kids) There was room for everyone and the house is so large that we had our own space. I will agree my biggest disappointment was that the pool was too cold and the hot tub had specific hours of which it could be used (electricity is very high on the island but you can purchase I believe through the agency an all day run rate). However the kids didn't mind at all but the adults hardly used it. Instead we sat on the deck for hours and stared at the amazing sunsets. It is very close to everything and Kona airport (don't worry you won't hear planes). The house sits far on a hill and it's only one of 3 in the Ooma Plantation that we could see. Your neighbors are very far so it's very private. The furnishings are high end and the beds, linens wonderful. I searched for for over 6 months for the right property at the right price and this place delivered. Additional notes: There is a high cleaning fee but for the size of the house it can be expected. The only upstairs room could use a bigger bed instead of the daybed, seems like it could be a master instead of an afterthought.Kailua Kona 15.45 miles

I wrote a complete review of my experience and added a link to your site because we really enjoyed this stay in Hawaii. The link is: Feel free to quote my article or link to it. Most rental agents hand you the key and disappear. This agency went out of their way to assure our stay was perfect. The condo needed some updates; mostly the bathroom showers, but overall, it was lovely, fairly well stocked and very comfy. We would, and probably will, rent it again soon.Kailua Kona 9.16 miles

Very happy with this rental. A quaint, 12 unit building approximately 2 miles from downtown Kona. Awesome ocean view from the unit as well as the pool. Just far away enough from downtown to avoid the hustle and bustle. Not so may impersonal units as if we had stayed in a resort. We were on the third floor so we had excellent views of the ocean. When we come back to Hawaii (the Big Island) we are definitely going to attempt to stay at this location again. A +++++Kailua Kona 8.48 miles

The view from the patio is absolutely lovely with crashing waves and wonderful sunsets. The house is designed for the master bedroom which was the only comfortable bedroom in the house. There is a small bedroom off the entrance which had A/C once we obtained the controls. There is an upstairs bedroom with no A/C and it was very hot even with the doors wide open and fans on and there is no bathroom upstairs. There is a den area with a pull out sleeper sofa, but there were numerous dead lizards and centipedes under it so we elected not to use it. The guest house is quite nice but very noisy from street traffic and you have to use A/C to sleep at night. No one told us that A/C doesn't come with the rental. You have to pay extra to get the remote controls for the A/C units. They were delivered but the A/C in guesthouse didn't work. Two nights with highway noise and lack of sleep made me a little cranky. The service technician did arrive the next day to fix it and I actually slept well with the windows shutting out the highway noise and the A/C on with the fans. The kitchen was well supplied and the outside grille worked nicely. I personally would like to be able to watch TV in the evenings and see the ocean but the layout of the house doesn't make that possible. We put a beach towel down on the floor to cover up the white carpet in the dining area to keep it from getting dirty. Not sure what they were thinking with upholstered dining room chairs. Coming in from the sun with sunscreen on and then sitting on the chairs didn't seem right, so we covered them with a towel also. The pool water was very cool and the hot tub was comfortable but only one jet worked. We had a lot of trouble with the security system which kept going off at numerous times each day. After working with the security company we were given instructions to reset it. In all fairness we did receive a $400 refund for our troubles.Kailua Kona 6.88 miles

The bad: no air conditioning or elevator. Billed as a three bedroom was actually only two with fold out. A toilet was leaking a little as well as bath room faucet- no big deal really.
The good- absolute priceless ocean view with great privacy and superb lanai. Very nice furnishings, art work and flat screen. Private gated condos with excellent landscaping. The unit was also very large for the money. Would we stay here again? - absolutely!Kailua Kona 6.01 miles
