About the property

This AMAZING tropical estate is truly a Hawaiian Oasis!

Looking for a place that has it all? Beauty and Serenity. Gormet Kitchen. Private Pool, Spa and Tennis Court. Full time caretaker. Peacefulness. Close to town, beaches and airport. Experienced owners with great review ~ the Hawaiian Oasis is a treasure waiting for you!

Uniquely located near town, and easy to get north or south of Kona to explore the big island bypassing traffic, this location can't be beat. On two private landscaped acres in a quiet neighborhood, this is the ideal setting for your group, family gathering, personal/professional retreat, or celebration. This tropical estate is also offered as a B&B (except during holidays), and was noted as 'the best place to stay in Kona' according to the author of the 'Lonely Planet' Travel Guide. The lush and exotic grounds boast 50 varieties of palm trees, tropical flowers, fruit and fresh herbs to complete the meals prepared in your own gourmet kitchen.

The expanses of lawn, outdoor living areas, tiki bar, pool house and outdoor kitchen offer ideal gathering space, whether you're hosting a family reunion or a private gathering! Your privacy and personal space is never compromised, however, with many intimate indoor and outdoor spaces, including private lanais for each bedroom suite. The Hawaian Oasis Estate was designed with the Hawaiian 'Ohana' (family) and indoor-outdoor lifestyle in mind ~ spacious enough for everyone to have private quiet solitude, while facilitating people being together for meals, games, conversation and fun.

Decorated with elegant tropical furnishings, antiques and fine art, this light-filled contemporary Hawaiian home offers the best of island living. Massive Ohia wood poles support the two-story home, giving the covered outdoor living areas a sense of Old Hawaii.

Enter the home through etched glass front doors to a soaring atrium filled with tropical plants, slate floors, and stained glass windows. Ascend to the main living area, master suite, gourmet kitchen, dining area and outdoor living area. The sunset view from the lanai will take your breath away. Ahh, the end of another day in paradise!

Through the atrium downstairs you'll find the Music Room, a quiet lounging area with antique and playable Hawaiian instruments, vintage sheet music and instructional materials for those who have always wanted to learn to play the ukulele! The covered garden-level lanai is just outside, where you can curl up on the comfortable bamboo and rattan loungers with a book from the library, or snuggle up on the antique Balinese daybed with a MaiTai and someone special.

The three large downstairs bedroom suites (one in the adjacent building) are uniquely furnished with fine linens, Hawaiian quilts, and down pillows. Private living space in each suite allows personal time when traveling with a group. With the serenity of the gardens just outside and tropical birdsong in the air, it's the perfect excuse for an afternoon nap. If you're feeling more active, how about some laps in the waterfall-fed pool, a rousing game of tennis, or a stroll through our quiet neighborhood? It's all here at the Hawaiian Oasis, 'Your Place in Paradise'!

(Note: The suites in this home are also available individually at the 'Hawaiian Oasis B&B'- see the website for details.)

About Peter and Darla

This is us, Peter and Darla, enjoying another day in paradise. We have owned the Hawaiian Oasis Estate and Bed and Breakfast since 2005. We first visited Kona in 2002, and the Big Island definitely hooked us,(after several trips to the other islands!) We bought our first oceanfront property on that first trip, a townhouse just south of Kona village. We have been blessed to now offer four homes in Kona, including the Hawaiian Oasis Estate which we purchased in 2005. Over the last few years we have been remodeling the Oasis suite by suite. After several years of serving our guests as Innkeepers, we now have Tom and Maye Johnson as our on-site caretakers and innkeepers. We have 3 grown children...a fine arts painter, a photographer/film maker, and a fashion designer. Our large extended family includes a growing number of pugs!

Peter and Darla purchased this estate in 2005

Why Peter and Darla chose Kailua-Kona

We fell in love with the property instantly upon entering the estate from the driveway (the Oasis has a way of doing that to people!) This is one of the most serene and peaceful places that we have ever closed our eyes and let the cares of the 'other' world disappear. As the morning sun rises over the Hualalai summit, the air around the Oasis is filled with birdsong, and one can't help but awaken with a smile and sense of awe. After many years of ownership, it is still as magical as the first day we found this gem.

What makes this estate unique

The location of the Hawaiian Oasis makes it the perfect place to come home to while visiting the Big Island. It's a great launching spot no matter which way you're headed. We are 5 minutes from all Kona activities, but the serenity of the place feels like you are miles from anywhere. We love the bossy squawking of the wild parrots that have recently been hanging out in a big tree on the property, and the wild turkeys that innocently parade around like they own the place. Our neighbor grows some of the biggest mangoes we've ever seen, and occasionally one of those delectable beauties appears on the fruit platter for our B&B guests. It's pretty easy to forget that there are places to see and things to do once you get settled in here...maybe tommorrow...

Guestbook comments from the owner

from our Tripadvisor guest comments- 5 stars

"No place like this place..."

My wife and I returned from Kona last week (8/9/09) and we stayed at the Hawaiian Oasis B&B. I’ll start by just saying it was great! The Oasis has all the very lush, tropical foliage that one would expect (and more) from Hawaii and is just beautiful. If Hawaii has a feel, I think we found it here at the Oasis and I’m not bs-ing you. We stayed in the Aloha room for 7 nights and it is off the hook great! We looked at the other rooms and they are all very nice as well. The whole place is just very well taken care of and has a very nice feel when wandering around the lushness of the place. When we came back after a hard day of snorkeling and just goofing around the island...we gorged ourselves on the views of all the surrounding tropical foliage and of the ocean from the rooms lanai. The Oasis is an easy 5 minute or so drive into old Kona with all its restaurants and shops. Its also in what we considered an excellent location for getting everywhere, especially all the fantastic and un-crowded beaches. The beaches on this side of the island are just over the top beautiful and great for swimming , snorkeling and just plain kicking back. Getting back to the Oasis, the whole place is just straight-up nice and, well, so Hawaiian vacation like...usually up very early in the mornings...sip our Kona coffee on the lanai, grab some fruit and...we were out, off to enjoy the rest of the island, only to look forward to returning to the Oasis in late afternoon or evening...One of our favorite routines while there: After a day of snorkeling, swimming, 4WDing to get to some outrageous beaches...we’d stop off at the Harbor House (Honokohau Harbor) before retuning to the Oasis which is about 10 minutes away. Once there, we’d tip a couple of ice cold thick glass 18 oz. goblets of beer (only $3.) The food there is pretty good too. Cheers to the good life! I’m sure you could tell we’re pretty jazzed up about this place and Kona in general, we really enjoyed it. This was our third trip to Kona and hopefully we’ll be able to venture there again next year.

Great property, Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

Extremely comfortable and very beautiful property. The owners were wonderful... very friendly and accommodating. Nice separate living quarters for groups that don't want to be around each other all day every day, but with great outdoor sitting areas (covered and uncovered) for large groups to be able to socialize.

Wonderful base for the Kona Ironman!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a wonderful base for our family group of 10, who were in Kailua-Kona to support one crazy man doing the Ironman race! Everything was super clean. The various bedrooms were just perfect for our family. The kitchen was excellently equipped, which meant we cooked pretty much every night, including 2 BBQs. We also enjoyed the pool and tennis court. Steve and Irene were very friendly and helpful innkeepers, giving us tips about where to go on the island and Peter and Darla responded very quickly to a couple of questions we had prior to our arrival. We can highly recommend this place!

Fantastic property for Ragnar Hawaii racing team

  • 5 of 5

This property was great for our Ragnar Hawaii race getaway. The large kitchen, numerous bathrooms, and spacious rooms comfortably accommodated our diverse group of 14 adult friends and a baby. The rooms and amenities were as advertised. Some people had to sleep in the less private living room and downstairs open suite areas but this was not a big deal in the scheme of things. We all enjoyed the pool and spa area, finding it relaxing and nicely secluded from the rest of the property. The house had many beach toys (e.g., snorkels, fins, chairs, umbrellas) that made our beach trip even more enjoyable. Steve and Irene were very helpful and responsive innkeepers. The owners Peter and Darla were also very responsive and professional. I would recommend the property for similar groups without hesitation.

Truly beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

15 people in extended family stayed together here, the kitchen was large enough and the size if the house and all the lanais and nooks made it easy to find a calm spot to read a book and relax even in a large party as ours.

House was very well equipped, everything you need is there.

Grounds and pool area also beautiful and lovely to spend time in. Innkeepers Steve and Irene always helpful and nice. My warmest recommendations.
