Three Palms

Waterfront vacation home with kitchenette and patio
Situated at 600 feet elevation on the side of Hualalai Volcano, Three Palms is a private, two-room (plus a bath) suite in a private residence in a quiet neighborhood overlooking Kailua Kona and the Pacific. The location is ideal...only a few hundred yards up the mountain from the Hawaii Belt Road (State Highway 11, Queen Ka`ahumanu Highway), one mile south of Kailua Kona town proper, and a little more than nine miles south of Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport (KOA)(approximately 20 minutes to/from the airport).

Although the house is occupied, you need never see or interact with the owner (unless you need assistance!), as you have your own private entrance and a lanai and deck for your exclusive use.

The three rooms include one king bedroom with a garden view, a connecting bath, and a lounge that can be used as a bedroom, with a queen-size sleeper sofa and ocean views. The suite is intended for a couple, a couple with small children, or two couples (the maximum occupancy is four people), but the ideal use is by a couple who are looking for a quiet, relaxing environment.

The king bedroom has two small desks with power connections if two of you want to use your laptops at the same time (the house has 500 Mbps service, and the modem/router is just outside the room).

For those rare times you will want to stay in, the suite includes a kitchenette with a microwave oven, toaster, and refrigerator, as well as a deluxe Keurig (coffee, tea, and hot chocolate provided), and a dish-washing area is provided on the side lanai. A small-capacity washing machine is also provided, with a drying rack (and a retractable clothesline in the shower).

For your stay-at-home entertainment, there's a 75-inch Samsung Smart TV with Netflix and other movie channels.

You'll have beautiful ocean and 'jungle' views from the deck, which is yours to use exclusively. There's a table and four chairs protected by an huge umbrella, useful day and night (includes soft, warm lighting), an L-shaped lounge, and two separate chairs with small table, all for contemplating the gorgeous sunsets while enjoying your wine.

So, come to Kona and enjoy your stay at Three Palms!

Awful experience. I promise you this strange man will write a long response. I will warn you of a few things: He will freely enter your private space when you aren't there. We left a light (single bulb lamp) on and the air conditioner set to keep the room at a comfortable level [68 degrees]. Steve decided this was an absolute violation: he entered and unplugged the ac, turned off the light and disabled the walkway motion lights. You should not feel secure here. Everything about this place is extremely underwhelming except the deck. The main bed is...whatever. The pullout in the living room is absolute garbage. The "Kitchenette" is literally a small closet with a shite fridge, toaster and microwave. When asked if we had anything to actually cook with he provided a grill...then promptly tried to charge us for "greasing up" his deck. We cooked 4 burgers and 4 cobs of corn. It's honestly bonkers. The place is also absolutely infested by tiny blue centipedes. Everyone in our group of four received multiple bites and the official decided "kill count" was 27. Roaches, thankfully, showed up less. But be prepared for insect battle. We ended up finding a way better place, not a home split into rental slums, and had a much better experience. Avoid this place.

Soooooo PEACEFUL! Great location!
Since we were Island hopping with our son and his fiancée, we didn’t need accommodations for an entire week. We chose this location due to activities we wanted to do in Kilauea-Kona. Super convenient to airport too. 4 adults: Mom & Dad (50’s) had bedroom, son & fiancé (20’s) had fold out couch ~ extremely comfortable and private. Birds chirping, island breezes ~ if the breeze isn’t cool enough for you, simply turn on your AC! LOVED the outdoor table. Beautiful view! Safe neighborhood. The kitchenette was more than adequate for our stay. Microwave, keurig, small fridge/freezer. We were on the go, and mainly slept here, and enjoyed the patio for morning coffee & evening cocktails. Mr. Herrington is a wonderful host. He has a binder with detailed restaurant recommendations. He provided beach chairs, cooler, & beach towels too! There is a small washing machine & wifi available too. Without question we loved our stay and plan to return! Mahalo!!!

Paradise in paradise!
Steve is the most accommodating, very mindful of his guests’ needs and his place reflects that. Everything you need right down to beach chairs, beach umbrella, sunscreen, fans and a huge tv. The photos are an excellent representation of this lovely home. Downtown and all the stores are 5 minutes away. Best of all, it is so very quiet and the view breathtaking. We will continue to book here when we return.
