property was exactly as described and perfect for our family of 7. Children loved the pool, coconut trees and tidal pools. We lived on the lanai overlooking the beautiful view.
Very close to everything.

Clean and well kept. Secure gated neighborhood. Direct access to beach by walking over the lava. Nice location close to the kailua. Nice pool. Nice shaded lanai. Well stocked kitchen. Lots of pool toys. Combination of shade and sun in the afternoon. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend it.

We rented with another family. In total 4 adults and 3 children 9-11 (2 boys, one girl). the kids shared a large room in the center of the house, and each couple had a bedroom and ensuite. Worked perfectly for this size and age.The inside of the home is well maintained but older. But, we lived outside! Great lanai and deck area.Lots of pool and beach toys already there as well. Fabulous sunsets! An initial issue with access was solved with a call, (very late at night too). Otherwise pleased with managers. So convenient to Kona town. Would definitely stay again. thx,

Manager's Response

Mahalo for your review, Mark! We're so happy to hear that your family and friends enjoyed staying at Hale Pahukoa--it's the epitome of Hawaiian style family living! We would love to welcome you back, and hope to hear from you again soon.

This was a good location, and worked out well for our family. The checkin process went well. The blender didn't work, and the company delivered a new one the next evening, nice. It was hot in the house so we purchased a couple large fans which made the temperature more comfortable. The pool cleaner broke a couple times, but we'll assume that they were waiting for a part to replace the coral holding two pieces together when we were there. Overall, nice place!

We had a great time at the Pahukoa! The location is awesome, and we loved the pool the short distance to down town Kailua-Kona and the view was amazing! We also enjoyed the small beach 1 minute walk from the house, both for swiming and wathing the sunset. The huge porch was one of our favorite things at the house, and was used all the time, for meals, hanging out, tanning etc. Loved it! We had som issues getting through the gate the first day, but that worked out quick, and the guard at the gate was very helpful. We felt very safe! There were some insects at the house, but not more than expected in this climate. we also appreciated the beach gear at the house which gave us a lot of fun. Thank you for having us, we would stay here again!

I don't know where to start, I loved so much about this property. The pool, we were right on the bay. Every time we went to Alii Drive we would locate the lighthouse on the beach next to the property. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed to cook a good meal, the BBQ pit was also used during our stay. The location was awesome. Some of the things we did: the submarine ride, the manta ray dive/snorkel and took a fishing trip, were all a short drive away. Although my husband and boys all said the best snorkeling was right off the rocks behind the house. I guess that is why we saw the glass bottom boat there often and the submarine ride was right there in the bay as well. And the view from the lanai was priceless, always something to see. I hope to come back again one day. Even though we were there for 8 days there just wasn't enough time to do everything we wanted to do.

Also, be sure everyone knows how to use the safe or you will get locked out. We had to contact the agent which in turn had the owner contact us so that we could get our belongings out. Both the owner and the agent were quick to the rescue and very polite.

Clean, homey, great Lanai with dining table and comfortable lounging chairs, and the best view! Pool was a great temp with pool toys available. Gated, secure location within walking distance to downtown and the old airport park. Good fans throughout the house, no AC. Lots of extras like sunscreen, bug spray, shampoo, small kitchen appliances, teas, spices etc. a couple minor issues, some pool tiles had come off and would get stuck in the pool vacuum, the full size bed was uncomfortable but the other three were good.

This house was everything we wanted: quiet, private, unpretentious and located within walking distance of Kona town. We loved the no air conditioning and hope the owners never change that. There is plenty of deck space outside and the breezes off the ocean are so refreshing. This older home and property is perfect for a family or group who want a simple get away that honours the old Hawaii.

Great location, older house but very clean and family friendly. Calibrated my nephews 8 year old birthday,he had a blast with his cousins and we literally couldn't get him out of the pool. The house location is great as all of our off property venues were close,and easy to get to.Although we spent most of our time at the residence with family n friends. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

Other than the noises from the increased traffic, garbage collection twice a week, speeding cars, it was fine. Just changes from our stays here previously. I know we can never go back to what it used to be, but it is still wonderful--out in the back!! Wish pool had been clean the last 3 days of our stay. The rain and wind storm really dirtied up the pool. My husband and I were not in any shape to clean it our ourselves and the pool sweep wasn't working properly. I understand that John,the pool maintenance man was overly busy with other pools. Understandable. But sad we couldn't spend those last days cooling off. We will be back again. It feels like our home away from home.

This was the perfect vacation house for what we wanted.
Close enough to walk to town centre (15mins) but in a very quiet gated community with loads of space to chill, stunning views of the ocean and gorgeous pool.
Room fans meant no night was too hot to sleep despite 90degrees and sunshine most days.
BBQ grill was fantastic and the house is well equiped.
We were 3 couples sharing for Ironman week, we all had plenty enough space but wouldn't want to fit 2 more adults in. I could see how the configuration could work for 8 but only if at least 2 (ideally 4) kids involved.
Management company were also very responsive, we had a small leak from the water cooler in the fridge which was repaired within an hour of contacting them.
We'd definitely rebook this property again, so much to like about it and only the slightly dated decor and lack of aircon (which actually was positive to us for Ironman acclimatisation but might be a negative for others) on the downside.

Pohukoa house was perfect. Like going back to 1970s in all its simplicity & soul. Grear books, gracious home, comfortable beds, AWESOME pool, though not pretentious in all the ways of its neighboring mcmansions. What matters is all there. Whoever owns this place, I like them from the bottom of my heart. Thank you

The location is great, right on the shore and near a small beach where you can lounge ans swim safely. There are tide pools right at your back door step. The gated community is a plus. We loved the pool, and out two younger kids were in it all the time. It does not have a shallow end, so if you have have small non-swimmers, I would be very careful about staying here. The beds were nice and the kitchen is large and well stocked with essentials. There were two boogie boards and some miscellaneous snorkle gear that we were able to use. Beach towels were great. We loved all the geckos in and out of the house. Most of the bugs were outside. We realize that this is a tropical location, so there will be bugs! There is no air conditioning, but coming from Idaho in November, we loved the warmth! There are nice ceiling fans in every room to keep the air moving.

Wonderful. Pool + Oceanside = Happy Family. Close to Kona activity (we came for the Ironman), but not in the middle, so you can get away. Outdoor porch was large, we spent most of our time outside (no air conditioning, so prepare for that, but plenty of ceiling fans). House had lots of little extras (dishes, condiments, pool stuff, bikes)

We had a couple of bumps during our stay. First of all, after 2 days there we discovered the side door was unlocked! Then there was backfiring noises coming from Paul Allen's property next door. That happened day and night. Really scared us. Lastly, the marijuana smoke and bad language from the house on the other side was very annoying. Don't know what can be done about that. Lastly, the kitchen light and fan went out an wasn't ever fixed. Otherwise, place was clean, is being updated slowly, and is located in a very nice place. Always enjoy seeing the cruise ships out it front!!

Property location was terrific! House was well outfitted in and outside the home. We spent most of our time in the pool or on the lanai. Sunsets were amazing! Great service and response from the management team, even when I had some basic questions. Not only DID i recommend this property to friends, I already re-booked it myself!

This home, though older than the neighboring megamansions is a great place for a very relaxing vacation. Very clean and equipped for any and all to enjoy. Best bargain in Kona Bay Estates and the location on the water can't be beat. The pool is large and very private. Easy walking distance to most anything in Kona Town.

We came for the Ironman competition, and this was the perfect location for all the activities. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go, and not fight the traffic. The house is in a beautiful location, and has a view that is great. There is lots of room to enjoy the beauty, and a kiddies beach only 4 doors down. The house is well equipped, clean, and nicely furnished. The geckos were everywhere, and fun to watch. The house was everything that we were told it would be, and perfect for 3 couples and two small children, with 3 large bedrooms & bathrooms, large lanai, kitchen, and living space. We will definitely come back to this property on our next visit the the Kailua-Kona area.

This was our 3rd stay at this Hale. Always return because of the location, amenities, and helpfulness of management team. All requests were promptly addressed. Became friends with the geckos, but not so happy with those biting ants! Pool maintenance man, John, was a wealth of information. We picked his brain for local restaurants to try--not the tourist traps. We brought our daughter and her girls, 13 and 6, with us. Wonderful having the private pool for them to enjoy. The gate keepers at the entrance were also very helpful and extremenly friendly. I had asked for a few small changes from the previous visit and they were all handled. Also the remodeling job was very nicely done. That was a surprise to us! Always sad to return to our real home!!

The property fit our needs well. It is a little worn in some rooms (cracked bathtubs, scuffed paint, etc.), it does appear that improvements are being made as the kitchen looked recently redone. The pool needs a bit of maintenance. The pool lights don't work which is good since one is so broken/flooded that I would have been concerned about being electrocuted. Made friends with geicos inside the house and only had one cockroach each morning in the sink (though watch your drinks on the lanai at night!). The view can't be beat and the location is perfect! The gated community adds a level of safety and security. No AC in the house, which I think is only a problem in the middle of the summer. We were a bit warm, even at night. Plenty of towels and linens were provided and the beach umbrellas that were provided was definitely a bonus! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and if we ever return, we would consider staying again.

We just love this homefront place!

This year was our second stay at this house. The oceanview, pool, charming house with enough space for the two families makes this place perfect! The neighbourhood is good and the distance to the centre of Kona is short. It's only a few minutes to walk. We recommend Knutson & Associates and this place very much. The only negative thing to comment is that the house (exterior) need some upgrade, but that doesn't affect us to much. Beautiful place!

Our group of 5 loved the house and the location. Beautiful fish, sunsets and ocean views were right outside. Petroglyphs are right up the street across from the Keiki Pond!

Darn near perfect! Couple injuries w/ sea urchins and lava rock...but with the property it was great. We spent so much time in or around pool. Couple kids turned into fish. Kitchen was nicely stocked w/ pots and pans (Costco tools:)
Furniture was what u would expect for traditional Hawaii. Location couldn't b much better. We watched whales and dolphins morning noon and night. Mahalo!

The property is old (as we knew from the description) but in very good condition. We would suggest to add a water boiler since the antique stove is slow and inconvenient. But this is a minor issue, altogether the property is very nice, spacious, in good condition, we would definitely use it again and recommend it to others.
Particularly the pool is just great - large and deep, made for diving.

This house was perfect for both my family of 3 and my sisters family of 5. It sleeps 8 people and has 3 bathrooms. We never felt like we were tripping over each other. Its a good central location with which to explore the island. I was not expecting it to be a gated community, which was nice, as there was reduced traffic on the road in front of the house.

Loved this house! Very cute and comfortable. If I could just suggest for future guests: master shower doesn't drain and you could use a new can opener. I never got the original dishwasher to work, but the property mgmt responded and replaced it immediately. Great overall stay for our family!

After spending 4 days in Volcano, this was a very relaxing break for 2 kids (7 & 11), two parents and two grandparents.

Location is perfect-- easy to get to beaches, restaurants, shops, etc.

Pool was large and warm. Kids wanted to swim at night and lights were broken. That was the only pool complaint.

Kitchen is large and well supplied. Easy for 4 adults to work simultaneously. As other reviewers noted, the house is a little tired. But location and price are in line with condition.

Beach towels were missing and Nick at Knutson was very responsive.

My new husband and I used Hale Pahukoa as the location for both our wedding and our reception, and it couldn't have been more wonderful! The weather was beautiful, the scenery was amazing, and the house had the perfect setup for everything we needed! Several people commented on how much they enjoyed the house and location, and how they would like to rent it for themselves sometime. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a good vacation rental (especially for a family)!!

This was the third time in 5 years that we have rented Hale Pahukoa, we LOVE this traditional Hawaiian home ! We slept peacefully with ocean surf, and trade wind breezes filtering through the whole house thanks to the jalousie windows. It is a great get-away for just chillin' at the pool, plenty of shade on the porch, outdoor dining, and searching for the green flash at sunset. Will be back soon !

We loved renting this property. We have been to Hawaii a lot, between my husband and I, we have stayed at the several different condos, the Hapuna Prince, even owned a time share at the Bay Club - NOTHING compares to the comfort and ease of this place. We loved having our own pool and being able to walk out on the beach and explore the tidepools with the kids! This place is so well equipped that it even had life jackets that fit my 5 and 2 year old. Our 21 and 20 year old liked being able to walk into Kona. Knutsen Properties was also great to work with and very friendly! I only hope this place is available every time we go to Hawaii!!!

This house is in an amazing location! It's within walking distance to the shopping and restaurants of Kona but is in a beautiful, safe, gated neighborhood. It is also a good location for exploring both the Kohala coast as well as the southern Kona coast.

We LOVED Keiki Beach!! It was absolutely perfect for my toddler as well as my 7 year old. The pool was convenient but be aware that it is very deep and doesn't really have a shallow area other than on the steps.

I gave it only 4 stars for general condition for 2 reasons: 1) While we were there, the dishwasher broke. The management company handled it well though. 2) The house comfortably sleeps 6 but the living room only has seating for 5 and the lanai only has comfortable seating for 4.

The house was great - the beds were wonderful. Spent a lot of time relaxing on the patio watching the waves come in. Pool was too cold to use unfortunately but keiki pond was fantastic.

Upon arrival Kona was a cooler than expected but eventually warmed up. The location,lanai,pool,beach,ocean,and views were magnificent. For some reason at night when lights were turned on lots of tiny flying black insects came for the lights. Just a little annoying. Otherwise had a great stay.

Had a great time, would rent the house again.
