This Million Dollar Oceanfront Condo has just had a $100,000 dollar remodel completed in 2008. Everything is brand new and "Top of the Line." It has all the latest decorating features, a gorgeous Great Room and a beautiful new fully equipped kitchen. With the roar of the ocean just a few yards away, you will not want to leave the Lanai after relaxing on the new Tropitone furniture.
A beautiful little sandy beach is right in front of your Lanai. This is rare on the Big Island. There are also plenty of "World Famous Beaches" just a few miles away. The Best Snorkeling in the world is on the Kona Coast.
This is a spectacular property designed by award winning architect VLADIMIR OSSIPOFF. It incorporates many features that are his trademark, such as screened full-length louvers throughout to provide flow-through ventilation, a large open lanai, and sliding glass doors and screens that completely hide in a pocket leaving the entire kitchen and great room open to the Lanai. This is a very private complex with only six units. It is about a 2 mile walk to the center of Kailua-Kona Village. The Big Island is huge, in fact all the other islands together could fit on it. There is so much to do. You are about 1/4 mile from the open-air Ali'i Gardens Marketplace,where you can browse for local produce, coffee, macnuts,and souvenirs.
This unit is fresh and new with beautiful furniture. All your linens are top quality and all provided for your comfort. We just purchased this condo in April for our second home and immediately set out to remodel and redecorate. It was completely renovated. Walls were removed for unobstructed ocean views and the bathrooms, floors, bedrooms and the kitchen were completely remodeled. We hired the best contractors and interior designers from Kona to put the final touches to our plan. We wanted our guests to feel the beauty of a million dollar location in total comfort and luxury. the bathrooms all sparkle with designer showers and modern high new Cherry Wood Cabinets. Brand new Mattresses and Box Springs insure a wonderful nights sleep.
Floor to ceiling louver windows allow lots of light and plenty of ocean breezes. We know You will have a wonderful vacation here. On behalf of our family we are proud to welcome you to our paradise.
If you are looking for Beautiful, this is it. Reserve this unit now.
I wish we could have stayed longer. Our family had such a fun and relaxing vacation at this property. Everything was as we expected and hoped for. You walk into the condo and you could tell it is very clean and well maintained. Everything is very modern and new, the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, furniture, fixtures...everything. The bed and linens are of good quality and very comfortable. The kitchen is complete with nice utensils and supplies. Practically everything is provided to make you feel like you are home. A very nice beachfront property home. There are only six units in this condominium and it has a private feel. I did not see the occupants of the other units except for once when I was sitting at the lanai. It is really quiet except for the constant sound of the waves crashing against the beach and the chirping birds. There is a small sandy cove in front of the property and another a bit to the right of it. Guests at some resorts that have rocky beachfronts need to walk all the way to this one to enjoy the beach. The water has a bed that is more rocky than sandy so this is good for snorkeling as you will get to see a lot of fish even at shallow parts. Downtown Kailua-Kona is close enough to walk if you like walking. I don't so we always drove. It has that genuine island atmosphere, not the theme park feel of Waikiki. A lot of good places to eat here. One of my favorite parts was just sitting at the lanai, relaxing and enjoying the view of the ocean. I spent so much time losing myself in the scenery, watching the water and the sky and the trees swaying to the breeze. It was easy to leave the rest of the world and all my worries behind and appreciate just being there. This was also a great bonding experience for our family. We were all tired and stressed out from work and school and everything else that we have going on, that we really need this break. Hale Pohaku, this condo that we stayed in for our vacation was the perfect location for us. I wish we had more time to spend here. Next time, I'll make sure to stay longer. This is a wonderful property in a great location. I am very happy that we stayed here. I have very good memories of our vacation.
Our family of 2 adults and 2 children ages 9 and 11 stayed here for a week. The property is immaculate, comprehensively outfitted, and very well located for exploring the Kona Coast. We would definitely stay here again.
We are leaving tomorrow from a week in Kona and Hale Pohaku. As I am writing this I am watching the Sun Set over the Pacific Ocean and listening to the tide come in. This is an Amazing Place. We have spent the last week here with our 3.5 year old and she has loved every minute of it. You are short distances from almost anywhere. The food in Kailu is great and less then 2 miles away. The condo is everything that is described and then some. CAn not say enough good things. Mahalo!
I never knew Kona can be my best vacation ever! People would usually choose Maui or Oahu but Kona has its own charm. And contrary to what others say, there are a lot of things to do there. It can be jampacked with outdoor activities - swimming with the dolphins one day, hiking to a live lava next then playing with the turtles. You may also choose to take it slow and easy like strolling in the marketplace, lounging in the pool or just waiting for the sunset from your lanai or have dinner at any of the kohala hotels.
All these we were able to do because we decided on staying on Hale Pohaku. It is the best decision we ever made for this trip! By staying in the unit, we had both the oceanview and a solar-heated pool (which i know is rare in Kona) at a very reasonable price. The unit was tastefully decorated with more than the expected amenities. It was immaculately clean and had a positive vibe. We knew when we stepped in that it would be the start of a great and unforgettable vacation.
Since the property houses only six units, we didn't bumped into a lot of people. The place is well-maintained. Inside our unit, all the furniture were strategically placed to make the atmosphere airy and light. All the other stuff (utensils, pool toys, etc) were easy to locate. The place is exactly what you would like should you want to live there for good. ( : In fact, the place is definitely better than the photos here.
Our only problem then was deciding each day if we should go out or not. Once you get to lounge on one of the sofas or the lanai, feel the breeze on your face and hear the waves crashing, you wouldn't want to get up. This in itself makes the trip worthwhile... We definitely are going back and stay here again...
Btw, if you suddenly decide to stay the day in the lanai, the kids can always go down to the beachfront. There are crabs & turtles lazing there. There are fishes in small tide pools. There is a small cove on the right side where they can swim too. Love Kona. Love Hale Pohaku.
Our family of four has visited different places in Hawaii, but our stay in Hale Pohaku has been the best so far. We had such an amazing time! We stayed for more than two weeks and could have stayed longer. Whether you are looking to relax or to have an adventure, Hale Pohaku gives you the best of both worlds. There are so many fun things to do that are close by or driving distance – exploring the tide pools with the sea turtles on the beach outside the condo, kayaking to see the dolphins in the wild at Kealakekua Bay, braving the waves at Magic Sands, watching the volcano’s red glow at Kilauea and stargazing at Onizuka in Mauna Kea. After an active day, it was refreshing to come home to the condo and relax at the lanai, looking into the ocean and feeling the breeze. It was even better than staying in a hotel because we were able to really assimilate into the Hawaiian culture, and to live like the locals do. It was also more cost-efficient as we enjoyed going to the nearby farmer’s markets and cooking at the condo.
We have two young kids and they can’t wait to go back. I would highly recommend for young families.
Thank you to Janet and Cecille for your hospitality and for the wonderful memories. You are truly gracious hosts, making sure that we are comfortable and maximizing our stay.
Just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful stay on our anniversary trip to Hawaii. It was our first time to the Big Island and your home made us feel like celebrities. Not only was it newly remodeled and clean but we had all the amenities of a hotel and then some. After a long day of exploring the island, we really enjoyed coming back to what we pretended was our "summer home" instead of a hotel room. We plan to come back for another vacation and definitely will be contacting you for our next visit.
Thank you again for creating such a special memory for my husband and I!
