4 bathroom Sleeps
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 ...

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!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Pagoda House. The location was perfect for snorkeling and the ocean sports we were interested in. The pool was a big hit with all of us and we used it multiple times a day. Sunsets, morning walks, jumping in to the ocean from the loading dock happened daily. And being able to cook our own food not only saved us money but provided quality time for chatting and hanging out.
Mary was very responsive during our stay as well as prior to and after. We hope to return in the future!
