Perfect for large families or friend groups, this Big Island luxury vacation rental is broken up into three separate units, providing the maximum amount of privacy while also allowing all of you to come together in the fantastic outdoor space. All three levels of the home offer colossal glass windows and sliding glass doors that reveal the breathtaking views beyond.

Take the outdoor staircase all the way to the top level where a cozy lanai and large sliding glass door welcome you to the open concept living area of the Penthouse Suite. Windows occupy an entire wall of the room, the top third of which slide open, bringing you closer to the ocean and coastline views that lay beyond and as well as the salty sea breezes. The dining room table and elegant living room furniture are all positioned optimally so the seascape is always within your sightline. The fully-equipped kitchen contains stainless steel appliances, an electric cooktop, sand-colored countertops, and cabinets full of everything you need for food preparation. This suite accommodates up to six people, with two sizable bedrooms boasting a King-size and Queen-size bed respectively, as well as a Queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Each bedroom also contains its own pristine En-suite bathroom, as well as split air conditioning units for maximum comfort all year round.

Down one level, the Orchid Suite is ready to impress with a layout almost identical to that of the suite above and similarly astounding views. While this suite, with its two bedrooms, two bathrooms and sleeper sofa, also sleeps six, the massive eight-seat dining room table and full-size kitchen make this the perfect accommodation for the largest party in your group.

Finally, we make our way to the cozy studio on the ground level, containing a King-size bed, Twin daybed, and En-suite bathroom. From the studio, you have access to the outdoor living space via sliding glass doors, and a view of the crystal blue pool beyond. All lower level bedrooms possess split air conditioning units and ceiling fans, and there is broadband internet access throughout the entire home.

As great as the views are from the inside of the home, you’ll want to spend nearly all of your time outside. Soak in the solar heated pool, relax in the hot tub, or read a book on one of the lounge chairs as palm trees sway nearby. Make use of the convenient outdoor shower next to the pool to rinse off before heading back inside to prepare dinner. Watch the sky explode into reds and oranges as the sun dips below the horizon, and listen to the waves crashing along the shoreline while dining al fresco at the two large outdoor dining sets.

While Kona’s Shangri La truly is a utopia, Kailua-Kona does have a lot to offer–so you should definitely venture out to explore the town. Within walking distance of the home, along famous Ali’i Drive, you’ll run into white-sand beaches like Magic Sands Beach, farmers markets, and cultural treasures like Hulihe’e Palace, a historic vacation home built for Hawai’i’s royalty. If you’re interested in Hawaiian history and are willing to drive a little further out, Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park is a must-do. Since you’ll already be in the area, stop at Two Step right next door for some world-class snorkeling.

Come and experience the utmost in luxury and relaxation, along with some of the best views you’ll find along the Kona Coast. Come home to Shangri La, where family vacation dreams come true.
