Every Wednesday morning, you can see the cruise ship anchored in Kailua Bay, near downtown Kona, about two miles away. It's a perfect location, within minutes of shopping, beaches, beach parks, historic sites, resorts, and all that Kona has to offer.
Lymans Hale is close to the Keauhou Shopping center where you will find grocery, drug stores, movies, and dining. It is also close to downtown Kona, where even more shopping and dining is available.

Lymans Hale is directly adjacent to Keolonahihi State Park. The 12-acre park, named after the high-ranking priestess Ke-olona-hihi, is mostly forested, but also contains ancient Hawaiian sites of heiaus, platforms and enclosures.
If you surf, this is the best location Kona has to offer. Lyman's is immediately in front of the lanai, and Banyan's, another world famous surfing area, is only 200 meters across the bay.

My wife, our 8 years old son and 12 years old daughter, and my parents all stayed in this wonderful house while in Kona for two weeks. The house is close to all the shops, beaches, and restaurants. The pool was perfect for our kids. The house is immaculate with beautiful views of the coast. We even saw a whale from the lanai! We kept the windows in downstairs open at night and with the provided fans we were very comfortable at night. The layout of the house was great with two kitchens and two laundry rooms. We would recommend this house for anyone and will definitely rent again when we go back to Kona!
Our family stayed for one week in this amazing house. Our only complaint was it just wasn't long enough! We love Hawaii and this is our 2nd time in Hawaii. This time we decided to rent a vacation rental instead of staying at the hotel. As soon as I walked into the house, I knew I made right decision. The house is huge with beautiful ocean view, nice pool and spa. The home has a magical way of bringing everyone close together yet it was so spacious and open, that everyone had room to stretch out and feel at home . We never got tired of the amazing evening sunsets. We had great dinners BBQ’ing fresh seafood and steak right outside deck by the ocean. I would highly recommend this house to anyone in Hawaii . Emmy has been a fabulous host ! She was always available when we call or email for any questions or concerns we had before, during and after our stay. :)
The location was outstanding and the views spectacular! The house was very close to being "home". My wife and I have visited the Big Island several times as well as other tropical locations. We know what to expect with these venues in the way of various pests. The controls seemed to work fairly well, but all of the dead (and sometimes not so dead) roaches were still disturbing. On the last day, a mouse got stuck on the roach paper. The pest control may have to be stepped up a little. The house advertises "air-conditioned" which is only partially true. The main area of the downstairs is not and got very hot during the day. All of this being said, we still enjoyed the house, it would be almost impossible to beat the location and all the amenities. If we have another large family gathering in Hawaii (9 adults and 2 children) , we would probably chose a different location. If its just 4 or 5 of us, this place would be ideal.
Our family of five spent an amazing two weeks in this perfect large home .this home has everything you need and some. The ocean is right outside , the views are amazing, and sunsets are gorgeous . We had two little children. , they loved the pool , it was hard to get them out as I loved the hottub over looking the ocean . This house is well appointed and there is snorkel gear and fishing rods . Which we did use. You don't have to bring your whole wardrobe as there is two washers/dryers. . This is a huge place and you will love it . We were lucky enough to meet the owner Emmy whom was as wonderful to meet as she was to talk to on the phone . Emmy is a terrific host who responds right away to any questions or concerns . I highly recommend this house and wouldn't hesitate to rent again . Thanks Emmy your wonderful.
Shirley: Thanks you so much for the review. I am glad that we had chance to meet each other. You and your husband are such lovely couple. It was nice to have you as our guests. Thanks for cleaning the house, I really appreciate everything you did for our house. Hope you will come back to us in the future. Emmy
The instructions that Emmy and Bob provided for getting to the house as well as all the information about the house was perfect and helped us in getting settled. Checking in was super easy thanks to the key lockbox which allowed us to check in late without bothering anyone. The house was huge and very comfortable with kitchens upstairs as well as downstairs and both had more than enough cookware and utensils. The privacy of having an entire house to yourselves while on vacation is so nice. Emmy and Bob were very quick to reply to all emails and we even got to meet Emmy on the last day of our visit which was nice. :) Would definitely book this place again!
The rental in Kona was exactly what my family had been looking for and the house Emmy and Bob provided couldn't have been more suited to our needs. We were eight folks staying in the house and had ample room and perfectly served as both our base of vacationing as well as a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the ocean. The Lanai (patio) has a wonderful view of the ocean. The claim that the point near the house is one of the most popular with surfers is an understatement. Rarely was there a daylight hour where you didn't see one or more surfers out there and during peak times it go up to 20+. The kitchen allowed us to cook most of our meals in, and again the Lanai had a dinner table we always enjoyed eating at (waves crashing in the background). All in all it was a great stay and if you are looking to do a big group trip to Kona, I couldn't recommend this house more.
Bryan: Thanks for the review! I am so glad to hear that you like our home and had a great time there. I am looking forward you coming back to us in the future. We are constantly improve our home. Our home will be better when you are back next time. :)
We had an absolutely wonderful time at this house. It could not have suited our needs any better. We had 4 couples staying here, and this home was more than roomy enough. If the ocean was any closer it would be in the house. The weather was beautiful every day and there were surfers to watch from sunrise to sunset. There were many good restaurants close by, and all kinds of things to do within minutes. Between the spacious home, the lower deck, and the lanai, even with 8 adults, you could find a place to relax by yourself if you wanted. The house is well equipped, and the owners were very helpful and gave lots of suggestions prior to our arrival. Once we arrived, the house worked out so perfectly that we never had the need to contact the owners. A dinner down on the deck by the grill at sunset followed by a relaxing soak in the hot tub could really change your outlook. We were able to do so much in a week from this base that we were really satisfied. This included, snorkeling sail to Capt. Cook, night snorkel with manta rays, offshore fishing charter, exploring lava tubes and waterfalls, horseback riding, body surfing, a tour of the botanical garden and a helicopter tour over the active volcano, and a visit to the house of refuge. And, somehow between all that we found time to relax and recharge. Thank you Emmy for providing the perfect spot for our vacation, one we will never forget. We would recommend this house to anyone. The only negative is the ocean right behind the house is more suited to surfing than beach swimming. Not a problem since there were good swimming beaches close by, but don't expect easy access for a quick swim right from the house because of the rocks. Our recommendation for the best activity for us was a day on the catamaran Kona Style with a morning snorkel trip to Capt. Cook and back onboard for the night snorkel. The crew was great and fun and the captain was a native that would teach you about the history of the area as you took in the natural beauty. It made for a great day. The Big Island was great, and this home was the perfect place to stay.
We stayed 18 days and live in Kona! Our family had a stay-cation! Our kids never wanted to leave the house and haven't stopped talking about it. They surfed in front of the house and played for hours in the pool and jacuzzi. As a family we enjoyed watching beautiful sunsets and barbecuing. You truly can't get any closer to the ocean without falling into it! We lucked out one day and got to see huge surf off the lanai. We had an awesome trip and Emmy was so easy to deal with and always available! Thanks for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.
Emmy and Bob were in constant communication with me from planning to the end. It was easy to find the house and the key lock box made checking in hassle free. The house was far more beautiful than expected. It had what can be considered as 2 separate living quarters with 1 bedroom downstairs and 3 upstairs. The first floor was complete with its own kitchen and living area. Sliding doors gave easy access to the pool, hot tub and the Pacific ocean. The upstairs was well appointed and airy with lots of room for a family of 8. Our Project Superintendent's 2 girls slept on the very comfy outside bed on the lanai. The pool and the hot tub were big hits for the kids, it was difficult getting them out of the house to tour the rest of the Big Island. We extended our stay 2 weeks and we will not hesitate to book this house again. Thank you Emmy and Bob for all your assistance and for letting us stay at your amazing house.
Great place to stay, have friends over, relax and feel away from it all. The house is large and the adidtional kitchen/living rooms work out well. Its nice when you have a few people staying at the home to be able to 'have their own space'. The sun sets right off of the lanai and is fantastic to watch. The driveway is a bit 'hidden/setback', so mind your vehicles pulling in and out. We didnt have too much trouble with it since we come from a larger city, but may make other people uncomfortable. The pool/hot tub was an amazing addition and was great for relaxing/cooling off during the really hot days. Emmy is incredibly responsive and helpful. When we had to add additional days (twice), she was awesome in helping us out. Highly recommend. This place is heaven. Thanks Emmy
We had our business trip to Kona and we decided to rent a vacation house this time. This is a great decision we made. The house is incredible. We had great time at the patio with the pool, the hot tub and palm trees. We saw whales and turtles everyday. Nice location, walk to white sand beach, 5 minutes to down town. You will not regret to choose this home.
