    Welcome to Koni Kai, Hawaiian translation: Passionate Sea. Koni Kai is a beautifully designed, very comfortable oceanfront home. Considerable time and effort has been spent to ensure Koni Kai is equipped with everything one might want/need while on vacation.

    Koni Kai is perched on an ancient lava flow on the South Kona coast in Milolii, the oldest fishing village in Hawaii. If you are looking for nightlife (other than some of the best constellation viewing on the planet), then this is probably not the place for you. If, however, you are seeking a luxurious personal refuge that promotes relaxation and rejuvenation, then you have found your perfect vacation destination at Koni Kai. Located 30 miles south of Kailua-Kona and just an hour’s drive from Volcano National Park, Koni Kai provides the perfect home base to lounge all day on the 1000 square foot sundeck, explore nearby black and green sand beaches, experience the dramatically different eco-systems in the rainforests near Hilo, or hike the volcano to search for petroglyphs and watch active red lava flow into the ocean. Regardless of how you choose to spend your days, you will be welcomed back to Koni Kai with some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, the perfect backdrop for the dramatically rugged landscape.

    In the winter months (approximately November thru March), you will be able to sit on the sundeck and watch Humpback whales migrate, spinner dolphins perform and the occasional green sea turtle swim up to say hello. Some of the best snorkeling, diving and fishing can be found directly in front of the house due to a coral reef that spans the north side of the bay.

    While we would hope the majority of your vacation is spent “un-plugged” from the chaos of the rest of the world, we understand there will be occasions when you need to check-in, so complimentary Wi-Fi internet and high-definition satellite television are provided. A brand-new, state of the art water filtration system, to include UV light, has been installed. The kitchen includes a Wolf gas range, Kenmore oven and microwave, Bosch dishwasher and every small appliance we could think of. There is also a laundry area with a brand new Whirlpool Duet hi-efficiency washer and dryer.

    Koni Kai welcomes you with much Aloha, now and for all your future Hawaii visits. Please contact us with any questions you may have – we look forward to making your stay as pleasant and memorable as ...

    Drive to house from Rte. 11 is an adventure, should be explained. Sliding doors to Master Bedroom screech loudly, need silicone, dining room chair (moved to corner) has a wobbly seat, needs tightening. Overall, extremely enjoyable stay.

    This is the second time my sister and I stayed at this property. It is very peaceful at this location and if we were any closer to the ocean we would be in it. The home is clean with excellent kitchen and bathroom amenities. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. I highly recommend the property and will always stay here when visiting the big island!

    We spent lots of hours on the dock fishing, lots of fun. The views are amazing. Couldn’t have been more satisfied. Thank you.

    Very nice place. Well maintained. I love just listening to the ocean every night and gazing at all the stars. It is a rather harrowing drive down the mountain road so once here, we weren’t inclined to go anywhere. Luckily we went to the grocery store first and brought all the food we needed.
