“I’d never stay anywhere else on the Kona Coast after staying here”.
“We never had to leave except to get food.”
'This was the vacation of a lifetime'.
It's a given that a Vacation Rental must be great - and this one is. But along with this beautiful home comes a feeling and lifestyle that just can't be duplicated.
Located on 2 acres at 1100 feet, just off the upper highway on a private road lined with coffee trees. This retreat is a cool alternative to the heat, humidity and traffic of town, yet it’s only 10 minutes from the Alii Drive beaches, the Keauhou resorts, golf, shopping and the restaurants in Kailua-Kona town. The airport is only 20 minutes away.
Upstairs is open beam with 20’ ceilings. It has a kitchen that’s gourmet all the way; ready to use – just add food. The great room has a dining and entertainment area with a large flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo; also a hideaway bed. It empties out onto a very large lanai with a 180 degree view of the Pacific. Also upstairs is a huge master suite, another flat screen TV, with access to the same lanai; and has views of the ocean from the king size bed. The master bath has a large soaking tub with separate shower and dual vanity.
Downstairs are 2 queen bedrooms that empty onto the lower lanai – same view as upstairs, and each has a TV. The 4th bedroom is setup for kids with 2 twin beds and a TV / DVD player. Also downstairs are 2 bathrooms and a large game room with a wet bar, pool table, flat screen TV and stereo. For added convenience, there’s a fully equipped laundry room.
The lower lanai has a gas barbeque, and down a few steps from the lanai is the pool and spa – more stunning views while you soak, swim or have a few drinks – the wet bar is only seconds away.
Finally, the yard has a large sweeping lawn. Avocado, lemon and mango trees abound; you’ll have had your fill of guacamole by the time you leave.
Wireless internet access and local phone service are available. Bring work with you and do it from the lanai – many have extended their stay just because of that.
Like your own beautiful home - you'll never want to leave.

Quiet, perfect views, perfect temperatures. Convenient to beaches, resorts, golf, town shopping & restaurants, and the airport. Away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists crowds.
All the benefits of the Kona Coast without the heat and traffic; and only 20 minutes from the airport. Located at 1100 feet, this property stays 5-10 degrees cooler than the beach area. Wake up to cool mornings and go to sleep with warm sunsets. Hit a wedge from the driveway and your golf ball will still be on the property. Pick avocados and make fresh guacamole each day. View the cruise ships in Kailua Bay while sitting in the spa.
Ok, I must say first that we are from Northern PA and after almost 24 hours on an airplane or in an airport, we were relieved to find your beautiful home without a single wrong turn! I don't think I can find anything wrong with this property except that it doesn't belong to me! Haha! If/when we return we will certainly be returning here -- it was our home away from home and are saddened to leave. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Hale Kawika was the perfect home for us on our week's stay on the big island. We had a family of 8 - including grandparents, aunt, uncle, and our 6 month old baby. The property is amazing and we found ourselves sitting on the lanai all day and enjoying the sunrises and sunsets, all the while sipping fresh squeezed lemonade from the juiciest lemon trees found on the grounds. The photos posted are nice, but they don't do this place justice as it's simply an amazing place! We arrived a bit early, and also needed a late checkout due to our flight and the managers were more than accommodating - thank you so much!
- Gorgeous views every day. Huge Lanai to enjoy it.
- Peaceful and quiet.
- Very clean and everything's in great/new condition.
- Huge kitchen that's well stocked.
- Master and en suite are huge and amazing.
- All the amenities you could need: they had a crib, booster seat, and toys for our baby. Also have pool toys and extra beach gear (umbrella, snorkle gear, etc.)
- Fresh fruits around the property - we had fresh Avocados, Passion Fruit, and Lemons everyday. Also found some Papaya and breadfruit!
- Heat pool and hot tub (we used it every day!)
- Wonderful staff, Lisa and Herb were super responsive.
- Short drive to town, not too far away from all the action and shopping.
- Great Coffee roasters just down the road.
Cons (not that there really any!):
- A bit difficult to find the first time, especially at night! (Make sure you have a GPS!)
- Rooster doesn't understand the concept of a sleeping baby
We will definitely be coming back for our second vacation!!!
I just wanted you to know how perfect Hale Kawika was. It was everything and more! We DID make guacamole every day. It was hard to leave the house but we managed to go snorkeling and kayaking as well as attend my daughter's wedding. We definitely didn't want it to end and we will be back. We dream of staying at Hale Kawika again in the future. Thanks for everything.
PS: Herb, Lisa and Jennifer were wonderful too!
I couldn't find anything to complain about. Nice house, property, owner and staff. Absolutely the only negative at all was a neighbor's rooster who crowed all day and night. A small price to pay in paradise! I will definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you David, we had a great time!
We concur with all of the reviews below. The photos don't do this property justice. It's simply gorgeous. It was peaceful, the view was great, plenty of room for all of us, very comfortable and well appointed. Cose to shopping, restaurants and beaches. The saltwater pool and hot tub were a huge hit with the kids and adults. Managers were very responsive. I plan to recommend this property to at least two co-workers who plan on a trip to the Big Island next winter.
Perfect place for our entire family, owners very accommodating and friendly.
Lovely log home tucked away in the foothills. Would absolutely recommend for most any traveller. Well maintained and welcoming. The owners and caretakers deserve kudos for a job well done!!
