Huelani has a full kitchen with Kitchen Aide appliances, 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 covered 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.

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!
