Overview

Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The name Huelani means “Opening up to heaven”. Huelani is located in the hills above Kailua-Kona in a quiet and private gated community. The elevation of this estate provides stunning panoramic views from every room.

This beautifully appointed (6400sqft) home features 4 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths. There are full bathrooms for each bedroom. There is also a half bath near the living room and an outdoor shower.

The moment you drive down the driveway, you are welcomed by the Marlin fountain bubbling. Enter the double glass doors and you will be greeted by 24 foot cathedral ceilings, French doors lining the living room and picture windows help keep the view of the Kona coastline unobstructed. The living room features 2 full sized couches and 4 swivel chairs to entertain or just to lounge your day away with a good book. You will find wonderful pieces of artwork throughout the house and be able to find many comfortable rooms in this home.

Huelani is situated at an elevation of 1,200 feet, allowing for near perfect temperatures year round with no need for air conditioning or heating. Windows of the home can be left open year round to enjoy the breezes of Hawaii.

Huelani has a full kitchen with sub zero refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher, full sized pantry and everything you need to make gourmet meals at home. There is a dining table in the kitchen, a formal dining room off the living room, a small eating table on the enclosed lanai and two glass tables by the pool. When you arrive at Huelani, you may find the pantry already stocked with groceries. We can shop and provide other services at a nominal charge. Just let us know what services you would like before your arrival. We also can refer you to a chef for cooking services.

Two of the bedrooms have king beds and the other two bedrooms have queen beds. Each bedroom suite has a full bath providing privacy for each guest, especially with large parties.

The office provides a sanctuary if you need to bring work with you or just catch up on emails. There is full sized desk with an oversized chair. Wireless internet is included along with a phone line and fax.

The enclosed lanai has comfortable seating, a flat screen TV with cable, a small dining table and a wet bar with a wine cooler and small bar fridge, all with a view of the pool all for your relaxation.

Outside there is gas grill so you can enjoy cooking and eating outside. There is a table and chairs to enjoy meals. Light the tiki torches early in the evening and have the perfect setting for sunset every night of the year.

The lap pool is beautiful and large enough for everyone to enjoy along with loungers for everyone to relax. Down the path near the pool is our Jacuzzi, tucked away in a tropical setting with a little pond, lush vegetation and a lava tube hidden in the foliage. It is the perfect spot to hide away, relax and appreciate where you are.

When in season there are avocado, mango, papaya, orange, guava and lime/lemon trees on the property. Exploring this professionally landscaped one acre lot can lead you to any one of these trees on property.

There are plenty of linens, bath and beach towels for everyone. We have a full sized washer and dryer for your use.

This home is perfect for all visiting situations; a girls getaway, family reunion, a romantic getaway, group of friends/couples or just visiting Hawaii with the family. Huelani will be the heart of your trip. Don’t miss out on the perfect setting to your Hawaiian vacation.

About Vicki Vaughan

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

Why Vicki Vaughan chose Kailua Kona

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!

What makes this house unique

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

Incredible experience created incredible memories

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Truly Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic home in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect spot for an extended vacation

  • 5 of 5

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!

Unbelievable home! I couldn't have imagined paradise this fantastic without staying here!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

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!
