    The Pagoda House is a beautiful, almost ocean-front traditional Hawai'ian screen home with a private pool and lush tropical garden overlooking Kealakekua Bay Marine Sanctuary - widely considered some of the best snorkeling in all of Hawai'i. The home's open-air design (there are no glass windows on the front of the home or on the sides— just screens) makes it feel like an oceanside treehouse. We are just across a one-lane road from the water. The home is filled with the sound of waves and birdsong and has stunning views of the Bay, the surrounding tropical gardens, and the adjacent soaring cliffs.

    Pagoda House's layout makes it especially perfect for extended family (or two families) traveling together -- it has two ocean-facing master bedrooms each with their own ensuite bathroom, and two additional garden-view guest bedrooms that share a bathroom. The upstairs master bedroom, bath and private sitting area cover the entire top floor of the home and has ocean and cliff views. The upstairs master shower overlooks a giant monkeypod tree. The home is surrounded by a large and beautifully-manicured tropical garden, which makes it feel like you and your group are on vacation at your own beach resort.

    The main living area is large and open-plan with high ceilings, and a gourmet kitchen perfect for cooking and socializing with family and friends. Even though the home is open-air, it is designed to stay cool whatever the weather -- the offshore breezes come through and there are ceiling fans throughout the home. Air conditioning is unnecessary (but we have one anyway in the fourth bedroom only — that bedroom does have windows that close).

    We are one of the few homes in the area with a swimming pool -- it is surrounded by palm trees, plumeria, orchids, hibiscus and other tropical flowers and vines. The pool and outside dining area have tiki torches for fire-lit evening BBQs and swims. There is also an outdoor shower in our large and private back yard for rinsing off after trips to the beach or ocean paddles. Depending on the season, fresh starfruit, mango, passionfruit or bananas hang from the vines and trees.

    One of my favorite things about the house is that it has plenty of places to gather with family and friends (the spacious and high ceiling'ed open-plan living / kitchen / dining area, or the pool and patio area/ the garden) but there are plenty of places to retreat for some alone-time too.

    We are located directly ...

    The house was as described. Walking distance to great snorkling. The pool was great to relax in the afternoons. Friendly geckos greeted us in the house. The open air kitchen was fantastic. We greatly enjoyed our trip.

    We had a great time at pagoda house. The kids loved the pool and fruit trees- the resident duck was a hit! The beach is a short walk across the street- view was gorgeous! There were a few more lizards than we anticipated and they popped up and made us jump a few times- but not disturbing. Parking was easy and the house had beach chairs plenty of towels and basic items (oil, vinegar, seasonings, all dishes….) beautiful home for an amazing trip!

    Perfect place for two families who now live on opposite sides of the US to meet, relax and reconnect. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful peaceful space.

    Our group of 8 had a wonderfully relaxing stay at the Pagoda House. The pool (which was better than in pictures) was a bonus and one could walk to beautiful vistas. The gardens were lovely. It was in a more secluded area but we were able to explore different parts of the island by car. Lots of space and overall the Hawaiian style house was a different but a cool experience.

    We spent an epic 8 days here on the Big Island and this property was beyond our expectations. The house is incredible. Your family will have to arm wrestle over who gets the upstairs “Pagota Suite”. Our daughter had to work remotely part of the trip, so she won. Lol! The kitchen/family area on main level is amazing if you like to cook…two huge islands…one with a cook top and one for serving. Plus tons of space for dining or just to hang out. There is a tv area. We never used it or turned on the tv. Decompression and island getaway at its best. Oh, and they had a nice book selection on Hawaii. Loved the bird feeder. Having a cup of coffee while watching multiple colored birds swarm the feeder was a great way to start the day. Wow! (And if you are lucky you may meet Mr. Quackers-the guard duck. Lol! He hung out by the bird feeder sometimes hoping to get a handful of bird food. He was very cute. The pool are was very beautiful! Water was perfect and refreshing. Grilling by pool is a nice option. The garden areas were incredible with beautiful flowers including orchids. Easy 20-30 minute drive to Kona with lots of restaurants and night life. And a couple hidden gems in Captain Cook area. Black Rock Pizza for an easy no cook dinner. And Keei Cafe, which is a must. Best ribeye steak on the islands, and daily fresh fish. You get a true Hawaii experience staying here. Your own private oasis with wonderful local beaches right there.

    What a wonderful place! It’s so close to several beaches and the view from the house is just enough. Thank you Mary for sharing your home with us!

    The first night we were all surprised by the sound of the insects and frogs chirping outside, and wondered how we would sleep, but by the second the whole family really loved the background sounds and the open concept of this house. After getting home last night, we are trying to keep used to the deafening silence ! I rented a place with a pool for the kids during the days we were not at the beach or in Kailua and it was by far the best decision. We all loved spending time in there. Just be aware, this house is around a 35 minute drive to the town of Kailua. Lovely house, would definitely return.

    The property is amazingly relaxing and beautiful. It has a bit of seclusion and a feel of what it would be like to live in Hawaii. The listing was accurate and we did not encounter any surprises. Yes, there are gecko’s but they do not bother you. There is a bird feeder right outside the window so if you’re a bird enthusiast you will love watching the many birds that feed. The ocean is close and an easy walk. There are many snorkeling areas within a 15 minute drive. If you like to just relax and stay at the rental you will find it quite relaxing. There are awesome views and if you get warm the pool is beautiful. If I visit the island again a had a large crowd I would definitely stay again! It was so relaxing!!
