“Hale Makamaka” or “House of Good Friends” is a modern amenities updated 5 bedroom, 3 bath home situated minutes above an established portion of the vibrant community of Kailua-Kona. Beautiful Kailua-Kona sunsets and sunrises can be viewed from the expansive wrap around lanai. This home offers a great base for exploring the diversity of Hawaii’s Big Island. Makamaka is 1.5 miles or 4-6 minutes from downtown Kona and Kailua Bay, 4.5 or 11 minutes from White Sands Beach (aka Magic Sands), 6.4 or 12 minutes from Kahalu’u Beach Park, one of Kona’s premier snorkeling spots and a 15-20 minute drive from Honua’ula Forest Reserve which features hiking and biking trails.


Upstairs features a master bedroom with a king bed and private bath, two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a full bed, separate full bathroom, a beautifully updated open tiled kitchen, open dining and living area. The dining and living space has full sliding glass windows that open onto the wrap around wooden lania for overlooking historic Kailua and Oneo Bays. The living and dining area feature beautiful hardwood floors. The lanai features patio furniture with dining tables for morning and evening meals, coffee or wine time while watching the sunrise from the eastern Mauka (Inland, Mountain) side or the sunset from the western Makai (Ocean) side of the lanai


The downstairs Ohan’a has a master bedroom with a queen bed and private bath, a den with a twin bed and armoire, full kitchen, a living room along with a private entry. A sliding glass door opens to a ground floor lanai with a peek a boo view of Kailua Bay with patio dining furniture for two. This ground floor Ohan’a is optimal for anyone who may have difficulty with stairs.

Don't need 5 bedrooms and 2 kitchens? Contact us for Main House (3 bedroom / 2 full bath) or Ohan'a (2 bedroom, 1 full bath) separate rental availability and pricing.

A full garage features a convenient keypad garage door opener, washer, dryer and locked storage for guest beach gear, bicycle’s and other sports gear. A workbench and work area are ideal for bicycle cleaning and maintenance. An outside shower just outside the rear garage door provides a place to wash off and cool off after a long day at the beach, run, walk or bicycle ride. A second outside shower is located near the Spa / Hot Tub on the upper rear lanai. 

The Mauka (mountain/ upland side) home also comes with cable TV, wireless internet and a BBQ on both lanais. Portable child gates are provided to block the stairway for child security.

This Hale has NO air conditioning and relies on it's position on the slope above Kailua Kona for the ocean and mountain breezes. The home has a large open living / dining / kitchen area with sliding windows and screens that open onto the wrap around lania to capture the natural cooling breezes.

If your party does not need to use the full 5 bedrooms, the home is set up to rent out the upper 3 bedroom, 2 bath, full kitchen / living space separately from the downstairs 2 bedroom, 1 bath, full kitchen / living space. Please contact owner to inquire about one of these options.

Excellent base!

We loved using this home as our base for exploring the big island. All of the amenities were wonderful, down to the smallest touches like having tupperware for leftovers and beach chairs.

This is an outstanding property. The upstairs presents like a model home, the downstairs is simpler and more basic décor. Both are well supplied with most anything you need for a comfortable visit. The house was well supplied with towels, dishes etc. for 9 of us for a week. While we did not meet the owners or have reason to contact them during our stay (that's a good sign) response from them prior to our visit was very fast.

Perfect Ironman stay

Perfect place to relax with family and friends! The home was spacious, clean, well-stocked, and the views from the lanai were unbelievable! Great location close to beaches and town! Merci and Tony- thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We enjoyed everything about it..the beautiful views, spacious areas , and location. It was the perfect venue for us to be able to relax while supporting our Ironman in his event. Thank you for your communication during the week as well. Mahalo!

Our stay honestly couldn't have been better! The house is conveniently located 10-15 minutes away from shopping, dining, and beaches. Everything was immaculate when we arrived and tastefully furnished. I was surprised at how above and beyond the home was equipped- we never wanted for anything! The kitchen is outfitted with everything from pots and pans (cast iron too!), paper towels, and tupperware. There are cleaning supplies if you need to do a quick tidy, laundry detergent so you don't need to pack a ton of clothes, and even beach chairs for when you holoholo to the beach! Electronically we had everything too, from wifi to cable, and TV loaded with your favorite apps (amazon prime, netflix, etc.). Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to enjoy the hot tub or grill because our schedules were too hectic, but I so wish we did! This home is super family friendly and they had even ordered baby gates for our stay to secure the upper lanai/stairs. How thoughtful is that?! They didn't arrive in time for our stay but we were fine and it's the thoughtfulness that counts. I highly recommend this home!

Amazing experince in an amazing home!

Wish I could give 10 stars. What can I say? I had a great experience during my short stay in this beautiful home. The best part was the morning coffee and sunrise views over the mountains on the lanai and the evening sunset views along the Kona Coast overlooking the the town of Kona. This was a daily event and one that I looked forward too during my stay. I literally planned around it. The home has many new features making this a comfortable home for any size or group type. The upstairs has a neat wrap around lanai with another larger lanai in the rear and a hot tub. The downstairs has its own little place to stay, with 2 bedrooms and a full service kitchen with easy access. The town and beaches are all within minutes from the house making shopping and beach time fun. I would recommend to anyone staying here to pack very little since it has its own washer and dryer. And if you forget anything at the store the home is only a couple minutes away from the supermarkets so not to worry. Thanks again Tony & Merci for allowing me to stay at your beautiful hale. It has plenty of aloha, Mahalo! Mike. CA
