Our beautiful home is located on the original grounds of the famed Mauna Kea Resort, directly above the 8th fairway of Mauna Kea's Robert Trent Jones, Sr. golf course. Constructed in the style of the world class Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, the house is graciously elegant and quiet, private and secluded. Hale Maluhia is located on the ocean (makai) side of the highway and has beautiful ocean and sunset views from all rooms. There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, including two master suites. Each master suite has a king bed and its own private entrance. The third bedroom has a queen bed, a private garden, and an attached bath. The fourth bedroom has twin beds and a view of the pool and gardens. All rooms are accessed from exterior, covered lanais, which provides a sense of personal space and allows guests to fully experience and appreciate island lifestyle at its best.
Being a guest in our home entitles you to full use of the facilities at both the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and the Hapuna Prince Hotel for a usage fee.
If you are unfamiliar with the Mauna Kea Resort, please visit the web site. Originally built as a Rock Resort, the property has two world renown golf courses, many fine shops and restaurants, two state of the art fitness centers, spa facilities, two pools, and thirteen tennis courts. The beach, considered to be the best on the Big Island and routinely appearing on lists of the world's most beautiful beaches, is located on picturesque Kauna'oa Bay. Swim and snorkel with turtles, or just enjoy the sunshine. At night, view the cosmos from our hottub.
Our family has enjoyed this house for decades. While it is more of a home than a traditional rental, we enjoy sharing this incredible and classic Mauna Kea home with those who appreciate the Mauna Kea and its Hawaiian elegance. All four of our children learned to swim in the pool and one day will teach theirs to swim there as well. We spend as much time here as possible and learn something new about the island on each visit. We hope you choose to experience old Hawaii at our home. Tim and Susan. Piedmont, California
All of the Big Island is open to you when you stay at our home. Just a few of the activities enjoyed by our guests include: watching the sunset with a Fredrico drink in one hand and your partner's hand in the other; competing in the October Ironman Triathlon; watching hot lava flow into the sea, skiing in January on a 14,000 foot volcano, hiking in the Kohala canyons and on the beaches, shooting par on the Mauna Kea Course... and the list goes on. Something new every visit.
