I am the founder and CEO of a media advertising company. I bought my Kona home as a second home to escape from the mainland's hustle and bustle.
Vicki Vaughan purchased this house in 2007
I looked at other homes before I bought this one, but I didn't care for the heat and humidity of the beach areas. Being at a high elevation, you can open your windows year-round and enjoy the fresh Hawaiian breezes. I also loved the spaciousness of this home and the large one-acre lot!
With so much open space surrounding my home and few neighbors, there is a tranquility here and a 'Four Seasons resort' feeling up on the hill above everything. It seems like you're far removed from everything, but everything is close by at your fingertips, just a short drive away when you want anything. Staying here is the best of both worlds! ~Hal
My family and I had a truly amazing experience at Huelani. The house is lovely, the grounds are breathtaking, and the care and consideration we received from Vicki were beyond all expectations. It was our home for a month and gave us the opportunity to experience life on the Big Island in a way that no resort could provide.
I hope to return again sometime soon!!
I spent my childhood in Kona. our family could not have experienced a better home on the island. The home speaks for itself, the pleasant surprise was in how fabulous the home manager was. From preparations for our visit throughout the entire stay she was extremely helpful and responsive.
Truly exceeded our expectations!
This home has exceeded all of our expectations! We have completely enjoyed everything about it. From the kitchen, mammoth living room to the world class hot tub location, we loved everything about it. Whoever did the landscaping here did an awesome job. It is so private, there are many times when you would think you were on the island all by yourselves.
Vicki is also the perfect housekeeper. She responded perfectly to any and all questions and was most helpful in everything we needed. She is like family now.
We will definitely be back.
This is a wonderful house in a lovely spot, on a beautiful island! We stayed for more than a month and plan to go back next year. It made a great base for exploring all the hikes, beaches, art galleries, volcanoes, and coffee farms. It was great to have a real kitchen, with decent cookware to prepare the fresh fish and Hawaiian vegetables at the end of each gorgeous day. The beds are comfortable, the manager is very helpful, and a large family can spread out or enjoy a meal together. Everyone loved the hot tub. Our kids were brave enough for the refreshing pool temperature. I am only reviewing the place for others to see because we already have our next dates reserved!
I do not know of a better home to stay in than "Huelani"... anywhere in the world. I am blessed to have traveled all over this beautiful planet but this home takes them all, and it's not even close.
Each room was immaculate as my wife and I arrived. The view was breathtaking from the moment we pulled into the driveway. We immediately walked to the backyard and we're stunned with the most exquisite view either of us have seen.
We spent many hours in the home because of the spacious areas, the incredible view, and the utmost comfortable setting. It was a dream to have stayed there and I highly encourage anyone looking for a peaceful home to relax yet still have quick drive to see the rest of Kona, there is no better place.
What an exceptional property to escape to with family and friends. Everyday we enjoyed beautiful views and breathtaking sunsets! The home has everything one needs to feel right at home, from kitchen supplies to comfortable furnishings. If heading into town there is a book of suggested activities, restaurants and taxi companies. This assisted in easy planning with our group of six. Our vacation exceeded all expectations! We look forward to planning our next trip back and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else!
Beautiful gated community, just minutes away from Kona town, airport, restaurants and shopping.
