Kailua Kona House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to Hale Hina - The Home of the Hawaiian Goddess of Sunrises, Sunsets, Coral Reefs, and the Moon! Featuring panoramic coastline views, an infinity pool, hot tub and a gourmet kitchen, this private residence, located in the gated and guarded Keauhou Estates community, in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, is the epitome of ALOHA living.

Relax into the embrace of the Hawaiian Goddess, Hina, when you step into the grand entryway through etched glass doors depicting gorgeous heliconia flowers and towering banana trees. This custom 2661 square foot, three bedroom, three bath hale has everything you need for a peaceful, reenergizing, private tropical island vacation.

Upon entering the expansive great room, the cathedral ceilings create a vast sense of space. Curl up on the cushy crescent moon couch and watch your favorite Blu Ray movie on the 60” flat screen with surround sound, or listen to tunes through the integrated sound system. Let the captivating view lure you through the two giant pocket doors onto the covered lanai, as Hale Hina seamlessly connects the indoors to the outdoors.

Grill some freshly caught fish, local grass-fed beef, or your favorite veggies (picked up at the Keauhou Farmers Market) at the convenient outdoor kitchen. The lanai features ample covered dining space for six people and an outdoor seating area for cocktails and conversation. Afternoons melt away in this peaceful setting where you can unwind in the hot tub or the infinity pool and your privacy is protected by the tropical landscaping and lava rock terracing.

The gourmet indoor kitchen is a chef’s dream with granite counters, cherry cabinets and all the tools you need to make a simple meal or an epicurean delight.

The spacious master suite features a king size bed, walk-in closet and large pocket doors that open to the lanai --revealing the soothing ocean views. Slide between the soft cool sheets after an evening soak in the hot tub, located just outside the bedroom. Unlike hotels and condos, Hale Hina’s pool and hot tub don’t have a closing time! The master bath includes a walk through marble shower concealed behind a glass etched ocean scene, Jacuzzi bathtub for two, a long granite counter with two sinks and a separate toilet room.

The second master suite includes a king bed, its own spacious bathroom with double sinks, a walk in shower, and outside access through a sliding glass door with a path to the pool area.

The third bedroom offers a queen bed and a convertible over-sized chair that cleverly disguises a regular twin mattress. A rainforest marble shower and travertine floors complete the guest bath located just down the hall.

Let the ocean breezes carry away your stress while you watch the whales and surfers frolic off the coast during the day. Marvel in the beauty of a perfect sunset as the stars begin to ignite the sky and you watch Hina weave her moonlight magic.

Welcome home to Hale Hina.

About Sallie Haws

Hale Hina is owned by two sisters, Sallie Haws and Amy Haws Peck who grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. Sallie worked for 26 years at the family company, Haws Corporation, a drinking fountain and emergency equipment manufacturer that was sold to the cousins in 2011. Sallie now manages the Haws Family Office. Sallie, her husband Jim Bowers, and her two children Marquise and Terry Van Tassel live in Reno, Nevada. Amy and her husband Dennis Peck live in Escondido, CA. Amy owns an operates The Goddess Studio that helps empower women through dance and ceremony.

Sallie Haws purchased this house in 2012

Why Sallie Haws chose Kailua Kona

The Haws Family has loved the Big Island for many years. Our parents spent 2-4 weeks a year at the Kona Village Resort for over 30 years until it was closed due to the 2011 Tsunami. Amy and Dennis spent their honeymoon at Kona Village as well. Sallie and Jim traveled to Kona every other year with the kids for the last 10 years.

We picked Hale Hina for its single story, 3 bedroom layout, it's amazing view and the fact that it had air conditioning and a hot tub. We realized that we didn't need to be on the ocean, we just wanted to SEE the ocean. The house was owned and built by a couple who lived there as their primary residence and therefore put great energy and many special touches into their dream home.

What makes this house unique

Some of the most unique attributes of Hale Hina have already been mentioned. Additional benefits include an on-island property manager/concierge who is available to help make your vacation exceed your expectations. In addition to personalized check-ins, arrival groceries, housekeeping needs, chef or catering services are some of the luxuries she offers for an additional charge. German and Japanese language translation can also be accommodated.

The house was everything we expected it to be, based on the VRBO info and the reviews. Absolutely beautiful! My wife and I are 50+ and travelled here with our two adult children, 24 and 28, spending 10 nights at Hale Hina. Location was great, giving easy access to shopping and Alii Drive, where you can cruise down along the water to downtown Kailua. Our kids rented mini choppers and had a blast going down to the beaches, meeting a lot of the locals. Sallie, the owner, was always very responsive whenever I made a request via email, prior to arrival. Ute, property manager, made certain we knew she was there to help us out, should we need her. Great experience overall. We absolutely loved hanging out by the pool and made good use of the hot tub, always enjoying the incredible view. My wife and I are already discussing which friends we would return to Hale Hina with for a vacation.

We stayed at the Hale Hina from 1/6 - 1/13/2015 and it was everything we expected and more. My husband and I took our son, daughter-in-laws and our two granddaughters (18 months) and this home was perfect! The pictures do not do it justice! It is a beautiful home, safe neighborhood, absolutely stunning view, quiet, wonderful breezes and sunsets and has everything you could possibly want. Our grown children told us that they would be perfectly happy just staying at the house - obviously we did not do that! It is close to great restaurants, beaches and amazing snorkeling! We had a wonderful time and definitely recommend this home. Ute - the property manager was so kind - even returning Nikon camera equipment that we left behind. Thank you Ute! The only problem we had was leaving! I plan to return and stay 2 weeks next time - one week is not long enough! Thank you Sallie for sharing your home with us!

It was wonderful to see that Hale Hina was exactly as advertised and more!!! This is a beautiful house--excellent floor plan for our family of eight, plus amazing attention to detail. We cooked 90% of our meals in the well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed Vitamix smoothies for breakfast with various Crock-Pot, barbequed or oven (nice large oven) meals for dinner. We really appreciated the great directions and labels in the use of everything. The beds were comfey and I particularily appreciated the 1st Master Bed; that mattress was amazing for my damaged back! Another detail that was so helpful were all the night lights. It was also an unexpected surprise to be able to make long distance phone calls on Christmas day or any day on the house phone free of charge, thank you! The pool, hot tub and lanai made the days so fun, yet relaxing, that it was hard to leave the house to explore the island. The music, plus having shade or sun on the lanai was ideal.

Beautiful Kona-Style Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been returning to Kona for over 30-years and any time we travel with friends and family we will rent a home somewhere between downtown Kona to Keauhou that is fully equipped with a pool, spa and ocean view. Hale Hina is a beautiful home as shown on the website and well appointed and comfortable. Sallie and Ute are wonderful to work with and do their best to make your stay memorable. It is easy to settle into the island spirit at Hale Hina and we had absolutely no issues with the home or association. The Big Island is a favorite go-to destination of ours when we want to get away and Hale Hina provides the perfect location to stay. A great value for any occasion. There is a reason this home rates so well with so many, you can't go wrong. We'll will certainly be back.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days at this lovely home while my husband competed in the Ironman. It is very spacious, in a super quiet neighborhood, and the views are extraordinary. The pool/patio area is particularly lovely. The house manager was attentive and accommodating, the beds were very comfortable, and the house was very well-stocked, from kitchen utensils to towels to books for poolside reading. Our only small quibble was that we like a very cool house at night and due to the configuration of the windows and the AC, we couldn't make it as cool as we would've liked but otherwise, perfection!

Hale Hina truly is a great vacation rental in Kona. The house is spacious and the kitchen has everything you need to make a gourmet dinner. The pool and the jacuzzi is a great place to relax and enjoy the incredible view. The sunsets on the lanai were breathtaking every night!

I would highly recommend this place if you are planning a trip to the Big Island.
