About jennifer moore
Ken and Jennifer Moore are Canadians who love Hawaii and spend six months of the year on the Big Island. They have been married for 30 years and have two children in their twenties. After purchasing their dream home, also a vacation rental vrbo #322776, they realized the demand for quality ocean view rental property and purchased Kona Onenalo. With their connections from living on the island both properties are well managed and exceptional vacation rentals that offer all the comforts of home.
jennifer moore purchased this House in 2012
Why jennifer moore chose Kahaluu Bay
The old adage: location, location, location is never more appropriate than here at Kona Onenalo. Each house has a direct ocean view and the breaking waves are only feet away. An ocean gate opens directly onto La'Aloa Bay, one of the premier snorkeling and scuba diving venues on the Kona coast. White Sands beach is 300 yards from our front door. The ocean front pool and spa offer panoramic vistas and sunsets. The property itself is meticulously maintained with lush tropical landscaping. And all of this is set in the middle of the greater Kailua-Kona area, a community filled with restaurants, shopping and many other resort amenities.
What makes this House unique
Kona Onenalo is a walled and gated community. All of the owners are mainland based and it is rare for more than 3 or 4 homes to be occupied at any given time. One of the things that we treasure about our place is that it is always peaceful, quiet and private. Alii Drive itself has a unique character. As it winds along the shoreline from the town of Kailua-Kona to the Keahou Resort 6 miles to the south, it passes several wonderful little sandy beaches as well as four favorite local surfing locations. Residents walk, jog and bike this 6 mile stretch of road at all times of the day. Kona Onenalo is the perfect combination of a private retreat set amid the hustle and bustle of a larger community.

Friends and fam spring break
Such a good time!!! Plan on being back in February. Totally recommend!!!
Thanks Craig. We look forward to welcoming you back!
Great family week
All three generations of our family had a fantastic time with turtles, mantas and snorkeling. It was warm but the portable a/c helped with that. The home was a perfect launching pad for fun.
Everything we needed in the perfect location
This property was exactly as advertised and a great value for the five adult people in my family. We were especially happy that the house included the "little extras" like beach chairs, towels, kitchen appliances and lovely furniture and bed linens. The location allowed us 3-minute access to a boogie board beach, steps to snorkeling and a lovely pool/hot tub to watch sunsets at the end of the day.
Every type of kitchen utensil, several types of beverage glasses and all the standard appliances (2 coffee makers) were available in the kitchen. Internet access was great; we had trouble figuring out the various TV boxes but in the end, decided we didn't want TV after all.
The property was perfectly situated for us to get to tours, Old Kailua Town and to the highways to take us to northern beaches and to Volcanoes National Park.
The worst part was knowing that we were only borrowing this piece of paradise. We would come back in a heartbeat (and are scheming to do just that). Kudos to the owners for their responsiveness and support. Mahalo.
Thank you Mindy! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the house and your time in Hawaii. We look forward to welcoming you back!
Review of our stay
Aloha, The view was awesome from this property and a very nice home. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub when wanting a break from the beach. Great location to the beach and shopping. Would definitely rent this place again.
Thank you Bob. So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay!
A nice stay in a nice area in a nice setting
We enjoyed our stay very much and enjoyed the easy access to many sites. The only negative was that the BBQ grill was not working properly (I believe the gas jets were clogged) so we had to cook our food another way. Some light bulbs need to be replaced, but all in all these were minor negatives.
So glad your enjoyed your stay. Our apologies about the BBQ. We thank you for your patience.
Kona Onenalo is exactly 4 miles south of the town of Kailua Kona on the coast road called Alii Drive. It is immediately south of and adjacent to White Sands Beach on La Aloa Bay, one of the premier body surfing and snorkeling sites on the Island. Kahalu'u State Beach Park is one mile south. Its huge natural saltwater lagoon may be the best ''beginner'' snorkeling in the Hawaiin Islands. Kona Country Club, a 36 hole public golf course is 2 miles away. Kailua Kona has all of the usual shopping amenities including many restaurants, local stores, Wallmart, Safeway,Costco, etc. The Keahou shopping center is two miles south and has restaurants, a Cinema, Longs Drugs, and KTA, a local supermarket. There are many beaches, historic sites and tourist attractions in and around this area and the Volcanos National Park is a scenic 100 mile drive away.
