About Stuart Hess

I am a licensed Real estate broker in California and Hawaii. I enjoy four wheeling, quad riding, hiking and other out door activities. While in Hawaii it's all about relaxing on those out of the way beaches, hicking the Volcano and exploring the unlimited sites. It has become the only place that I can get away from it all and truly relax.

Stuart Hess purchased this house in 2002

Why Stuart Hess chose Kailua-Kona

Hawaii, Kona, beaches, sunsets and the perfect temperature. What else is there?

What makes this house unique

Peace, tranquility, the ease of coming and going when I please and of course I never tire of those wonderful sunsets.

A great time at Kona Sunset House

  • 4 of 5

This was our 4th trip to the Big Island, my husband and I normally stay in Captain Cook, but this trip included our grown children and grandkids so we wanted to stay someplace that was more central to activities and shopping. The Kona Sunset house fit the bill, and the pool was a big plus with the little kids.

The house is close to shopping (grocery and other shopping), restaurants and countless beaches. We had a new place to visit every day, also a few favorites we visited multiple times. There are also several parks and play fields near buy so we got to take the little kids out and just run them around. The walking path that is in front of the house is great. The little boys liked walking on it, we took books and tried to identify birds and plants, it was great fun. The neighbors are great and gave us great info on where to find turtles, off the beaten path and also info on places to eat. They also helped us identify plants that we couldn’t figure out.

The house is very nice. The kitchen had everything I needed to prepare meals for 7 people for 12 days. There is a crock pot (which was very handy), rice cooker, toaster over, blender, plenty of pots and pans. We made brownies several times. We used the grill several times. And my favorite--- the knifes were sharp. There is a closet with beach items, some chairs, coolers, noodles, and a few “toys”. There are some games and puzzles which we enjoyed also some crayons and paper for drawing. The TV’s worked just fine (we did take and amazon stick for additional movies and shows for down time). The internet was fine. I had to log into work one day and we used it to arrange for day trips. We had no problems with it.

The pool is down some pretty steep stairs, but we had no problems navigating them. Just be careful after sunset. It was great having a pool, the beach is great but being able to just relax and float was a real bonus. It was nice having some room to separate from the group, the readers often went down to the pool, or escaped from the pool when the kids were jumping in. The lanai made the house, so large and comfortable with plenty of seating. Loved sitting on it watching the birds in the morning. We set up a spotting scope and everyone enjoyed looking at the birds. No whales on this trip, but maybe next time. If you have the chance I highly recommend sleeping on the lanai one night. The futon is very comfy and looking at the night sky was just amazing

Views, location, the pool - everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 2 weeks for my parents' wedding anniversary and things couldn't have been better! Parking was easy as there was room for both our cars, the house was tidy and well equipped for cooking and entertaining. The back yard was wonderful - palm trees around the pool and a good sized grassy area. We even had a couple chickens visit from next door! The lanai is enormous with a seating area for 2 on one end, then a couch, then a large outdoor eating area. The photos don't do the views justice - you can see all the way to Kailua, about 4 miles away. I was able to get in a round of golf at the nearby Kona Country Club only 10 minutes away and there is a great shopping center even closer with grocery, Hawaiian BBQ, and even a movie theater! I can't wait to return!

Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

This house had it all: the view, the location, the pool, the lanai... the list goes on.

Our first impression of the residence was that it was kept meticulously clean, which gives the visitor a nice feeling of "home" from the beginning. Next, we immediately noticed the view off of the expansive lanai; the sunset is so close you feel as if you could touch it. We were impressed from the first moment.

The pool was wonderful; private, secluded, and peaceful. The accommodations were great as well: a spacious master bedroom with a nice shower, a full kitchen, and a cozy living room all complemented by a large, relaxing lanai.

We loved staying here, and hope to do so again. Cheers!

Kona Sunset House - Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed in this property. It is an excellent and very clean property with all that you need to make an memorable vacation. The surrounding area is very peaceful. Unwind on the lanai and experience near paradise. I highly recommend it the location and the property. The children? (20 and 26) enjoyed the time there immensely, my wife an over worked and over stressed school teacher embraced the experience and made a remarkable recover from a traumatic school year. Only have memories now but they are excellent ones to have.

Communication with Stuart was straight forward and easy.

Now saving the pennies for a return trip something in the next few years.

Book and enjoy!
