Weddings and Special Events
The Kona beach houses are adjacent beach homes on Alii Drive in Kona, Hawai’i. The Historic Plantation Manager’s Beach Home is a four bedroom, four bathroom home with a living room and indoor and outdoor covered lanais. The Seaside Zen Cottage next door is a three bedroom, three bathroom home with a living dining room and an outdoor covered lanai. (More detailed descriptions of the homes can be found in the sections specifically devoted to each house)
The houses are sited on more than an acre of grounds landscaped with native and endemic Hawaiian plants. In front of the homes is a picturesque point with a striking view of the Kona Coast as well as our three beaches and the lagoon. The site is ideal for weddings of 100 people or fewer. Dylan and Katie were married here. They invited 100 guests who were seated on the point for the ceremony. Cocktails were at the Seaside Zen Cottage next door, and dinner and dancing was in the front yard of the Plantation Manager’s Beach House. They ordered a tent to make sure that it didn’t rain (it didn’t) and a dance floor. Dylan and Katie booked the brand new Body Glove boat for the rehearsal dinner and were rewarded with an entourage of dolphins and whales who accompanied the sunset cruise. Friends came from all over the United States. They all said, “It was the best wedding ever!”
Our family has owned the Plantation Manager’s Beach House and the Seaside Zen Cottage for more than 60 years. These homes are a sanctuary for our family and friends. It is a place for contemplation, rejuvenation and often celebration.
We are delighted to share our sanctuary with people who will appreciate its unique qualities. Most of our guests respect our property and treat our homes as they would treat their own. On very few occasions, we have had to remind guests of the guidelines for use of our home, particularly during celebrations. Weddings in particular can sometimes involve loud music, with festivities lasting into small hours of the morning, large groups of friends coming over all of the time, and lots of traffic. If you or your guests are looking forward to this kind of celebration, please do not attempt to stay at our homes.
