KAI EA 'BREATH OF THE SEA

Dates awaiting your visit with special summer rates: July 26 to Aug 1

August 1 to 16

Welcome to a place where the vastness of sea and sky seemingly meet in endless horizon. It is ideal for couples and honeymooners wanting total privacy. Get away from it all at KAI EA. Kai meaning sea joined with Ea (a ah) meaning breath. This awesome home is upstaged only by it's extraordinary ocean views.....and the 'breath' of the sea below. Situated on five gated acres for total privacy.

A tasteful Asian theme defines this contemporary cliffside home on five private and gated acres. The upscale home celebrates, and was designed to capture, the breathtaking views of the wide open Pacific Ocean, miles of coastline and white water all the way to Maui, magnificent sunsets and moon rises filling the sky and reflected on the glistening sea, backdrop of clouds hanging on the mountain with stars and distant houses lit up at night. The ruins of an ancient Hawaiian village is seen on the coastal plain below. The home has multiple levels, with a handful of steps, to capture the view in every direction. There are many sunny or shady lanais to decompress and meditate and take in this vista. There are no other rentals or occupants on the property for your complete privacy.

A recent local magazine (At Home) featured this amazing home and praised: 'A view so high, so spectacular, so sweeping, making it an apt lair for native owls and hawks'. The panoramic view, yet closeness to the sea and nature's displays, make KAI EA the perfect place to forget the hassles of everyday life. The incredeible vistas have a calming and grounding effect.

Situated for the perfect climate at 800' with warm sunny breezy days and comfortable nights. The home is perched above unique Pebble Beach (black polished pebbles) and in winter it is a birthing and mating cove for migrating whales. It is common for the call of whales and flapping flukes to break the silence and treat the eye. Crashing waves up and down the coast reverberate when the surf is high. Be sure and bring your binoculars!

The newer fully appointed home is large, open and spacious. It is accentuated with high ceilings, superior craftmanship and furnished with many Asian antiques and artwork. Lending to the ambiance are oversized Italian tile and Brazilian cherry wood floors, roomy well equipped gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. There are many ceiling fans, huge soaking tub and a private tiled and enclosed outdoor shower for after the beach. A totally separate bedroom available also (please ask about extra guests) with choice of plush top queen bed or slightly more firm Serta Spinal Logic queen bed. Master has it's own private sitting area and walls of glass.

With all this, you are in the peaceful country yet close to a variety of great beaches for excellent snorkeling and kayaking and just the right distance from nightlife in Kailua-Kona. A variety of restaurants and shopping dot the way.

An excellent grocery store and small mall is about 20 minutes away with smaller convenience stores closer. South Kona is our local 'breadbasket' for fresh produce, fruit, Kona coffee and macademia nuts. There are abundant coffee plantation

Why The Owner chose Captain Cook

The most awe inspiring view of coast, sea and ocean is hard to duplicate.

What makes this estate unique

Many native birds soaring overhead, feral goats on the distant hills and sounds of the sea and whale sounds and sightings. As well as the full display of weather changes, clouds and stars!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dennis,

We absolutely "hated" that we had to leave today! What a beautiful home and beautiful view!! I feel like my family and I got to experience the "real" Hawaii!! I am so happy with this trip and we so enjoyed the house!! There are no words to describe waking up to this view, enjoying the peace, enjoying the silence, watching the breathtaking sunsets and remembering how important it is to feed your sole with beauty as often as possible!! We loved every minute of it!! Thank you for allowing us to have this experience! We will never forget it!!

Beautiful home and surroundings

  • 5 of 5
Kai Ea exceeded our expectations! We stayed for a week and this was our "home base" for adventuring to different parts of the island each day. The kitchen was very well appointed, the master bedroom and bathroom were both large and very comfortable. As I think all other reviewers have noted, the views are AMAZING! Dennis is extremely easy to work with on the rental arrangements and made sure we had everything we needed from directions to recommendations to amenities. We hope to return!

Zen in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a serene well-appointed home with a million dollar view, then this is the place for you. We enjoyed sitting on the infinity lanai waking up with our morning coffee listening to the waves crash while savoring our beautiful surroundings before heading out for a day of exploring the many treasures this island holds. It was an oasis upon our return where we again returned to the lanai with a cold drink to wind down and reflect under a canopy of stars. The home is inviting and comfortable. The master bedroom has an expansive ocean view and access to the outdoor shower. The shower is a treat after a long day of hiking or first thing in the morning as it has both hot and cold water and a beautiful view. The kitchen has all you will need including a coffee grinder for those Kona coffee beans you can purchase all over the island. The grocery store is just a click away and if you do not feel like cooking, Keoki's Roadside Cafe had some amazing ono. Very restorative vacation.
Dennis is wonderful to work with and is a great resource. His excellent communication and attention to details as evidenced through the welcome folder and guidebooks were greatly appreciated. With so many choices, we are thankful that we chose "Breath of the Sea." As another reviewer lamented, "we felt like millionaires" it was hard to leave and we look forward to returning.

Paradise Found..Again!

  • 5 of 5
Our second time at Kai Ea and once again surpassed our expectations. Most relaxing vacation we've ever been on. Between the fantastic house oriented for the ocean views (and oriental motif), the privacy, proximity to local Farmers Markets, beaches and historic sights, it has the perfect atmosphere for a great island experience. Wild goats, wild turkey, pheasant and a variety of birds frequent the property. The rental process was smooth both stays and Dennis is very responsive and personable with the rental process. Not for night life junkies or young children.

Definitely "As Advertised"!

Definitely "As Advertised"!
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were fortunate to stay for one month in this breathtaking home. The photos are accurate but can't convey the "feel" of the place adequately. After two weeks it was as though this was our new home, and we almost forgot the snow that was falling on our actual home. In spite of the many wonderful beaches and other Island attractions some days we preferred to just stay home. We ate almost all meals at home and some days just sat on the lanai and read or napped. It was a very restful vacation in a spectacular setting.
We recommend this rental for anyone who wants comfort and seclusion as well as convenience. We hope to return next year.

Serene Big Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our week was wonderful--very relaxing. The Asian decor is lovely, and the patio and view are outstanding. We were amused by the wild goats and occasional wild turkey. The landscaping is beautiful. Quite close to the Painted Church, the City of Refuge, and coffee plantations. We spent one night at the Volcano House--highly recommended while the current activity in Halemaumau glows in the dark.

Breath of the Sea

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Breath of the sea 2 weeks. What a wonderful escape! It was more than we expected in amenities, peace and quiet.
We stayed 1 week prior in Kona. We had a condo right on the ocean. It was loud, crowded and traffic was a constant.
Kai-Ea was wonderfully quiet and private. We could easily access everything we wished but it did take some driving. Then we could come back to a private sanctuary with beautiful views and perfect solitude.
Dennis was great to work with. He asked several times if we needed anything or had any issues.
Whether you do any ocean activities or not, I highly recommend the outdoor shower. Standing in the sunshine, looking out at the ocean and occasionally glimpsing a dolphin or whale isn't a bad thing.
As I am sure others have said, there are a lot of steps! If you have an issue with stairs I would not recommend it.
