Waipio House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10) NO MORE THAN THAT

Keywords: High on a bluff 600 ft above Waipio Bay, on property once owned by King Kamehameha IV, sits Hale 'Io. Magical sunsets and sunrises without the glare or heat, Maui on the horizon, gentle nightime rains to lull you to sleep (and make the rainbows) and a quiet and peacefulness so hard to find - this is the magic of Hale 'Io. Lush surroundings, sexy pool with concealed rock slide and waterfall and views that never quit, never. Watch whales from the lanai or ocean deck, awaken to the birds, listen to the wind - it really speaks to you here.

Owner-built, architect designed, custom home for laid back family living. Lush grounds, organic fruit orchard, ample parking, sexy beach-entry pool, magnificent kitchen - 2 dishwashers, 2 microwaves, 2 ovens, warming drawer - fit for the accomplished cook. Color abounds to reflect the natural hues of Hawaii. The house is the color of the ocean, both deep and shallow water and inside is a rainbow cacophony that no photos can do justice. Simply stunning for the non color-phobes! Many exotic woods and finishes, but truly designed for in and out living and a laid back lifestyle. You can sleep a lot more than 10 here, but need

to believe that the comfy sofa, futons and pune' on the lanai are OK for overnights (they are not). Don't worry, you'll believe, as that is where you'll nap! Bring the kids, but they have to sign the contract about the cliff, the pool, the sliding hill and the fort ;-) - which means they must be at least the age of reason and capable of understanding the danger. Pool is completely fenced, cliff is not.

Five bedrooms, 3 with ensuite bathrooms, one with 'across the hall' bathroom and one without. Two lush outdoor showers. Secret room.....if you can find it, you can sleep there.

**Pronounced Hah-Lay EE Oh

THIS IS A RESIDENTIAL RENTAL ONLY. NO FUNCTIONS OF ANY SORT ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY.

Eileen Levin purchased this house in 2007

This was our home. If you could build a luxury home in Yosemite, you would, right? This property is simply magical. The ocean views are stunning.

Nature abounds in many forms and that is what we have enjoyed the most. Hard to beat watching whales from the lanai.

UPON ARRIVAL, WE THOUGHT WE DIED AND LANDED IN HEAVEN...!!!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in Kona late evening and drove to the house. We heard this Hawaiian music as we approached the entry door. I slowly opened the door, all the lights were on. I stood there laughing, it was incredible. As my friends came into the place I watched their eyes grow bigger and their smiles become bigger than their faces. We gathered and strolled thru the grand entry area towards the Lani and it was just incredible. The furniture, the decorations, the warmth and beauty of each and every aspect of this home was beyond anything I have had the opportunity to have previously enjoyed.

That evening we did not know what to expect for the views as it was already after 10pm, and when we all awoke in the morning there we bigger smiles than there were when we arrived. The views are stupendous, beyond anything imaginable. The photos are nice and all but to stand in the yard and look out is beyond words, we went out to the deck and it just got better, this home is a must for any vacationer on the big island.

Then I found out that the land was previously owned by King Kamaha IV...so I would always answer the phone "King Kamaha Junior" and Eileen (our host who was the only one that called) would just laugh.

We also went on the ATV tour that Eileen runs just down the road. I never rode one of them things before, but was blown away at how much fun that was up in the mountains. Here workers did safety talks and individual instructions to assist our group and we all had one adventure of a lifetime up in the woods on the side of Waipio Valley. This adventure is a MUST for anyone in the area as well.

BEST RENTAL EVER AND ONE OF THE BEST VIEWS ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5
I can only say ditto to everything the other reviewers have said. There were 8 in our party and we all loved the house. Eileen was a great hostess. We enjoyed the close access to the Waipio Valley and the views from down there were also incredible, plus wild horses! The views from the veranda are indescribable. We did everything on Eileen's list of activities and had a wonderful vacation. Her recommendations are perfect and I would advise you to follow them.

MAGNIFICANT AND MAGICAL

  • 5 of 5
I have lived on the Big Island for 20 years and visited Waipio Vally, with friends and family, but only to the lookout... or the "hike" down to the beach. I have never had the opportunity to stay in such an amazing and magical home as this one! I fell in love with every aspect of the home. From the moment you walk in, you will be in awe. The pictures are all excellent and accurate, but the essence of the magic of the home can be felt- the minute you walk through the front gates!!! You have views that you could not see from anywhere else, Maui in the distance, waterfalls down the side of the mountain and if you are out on the landing deck you feel as if you are on the edge of the world looking out over the amazing ocean. I did not want to leave. Every room was beautifully decorated with thoughtfulness to every aspect of your comforts. Loved the private outdoor shower off of our bathroom. Take the time too look around at all of the beautiful artwork, sit in comfy alcoves, bask in the sun by the pool, or just read a book on the comfortable couch overlooking the valley. If you want an extremely fun tour, try the Ride The Rim ATV adventure. The guides were so helpful and we had a blast, at first we were kind of nervous because we had never ridden one, but they were extremely patient in teaching us all how to operate and safely ride, we did a test course first, so we all felt comfortable before going out on the 4 mile trail-which ends up at an amazing waterfall where we swam and cooled off. We stopped for breathtaking views along the way and again I was so blessed as to see parts of the valley I never have, even as an islander...
If you are looking for the memory of a life time, I highly recommend this as it! Eileen was so wonderful, funny and helpful, you will really enjoy meeting her, she is truly the spirit of aloha! Thanks so much for everything, huge hugs! Karen

This property was stunning~I have lived on the Big Island for 34 years and this was the most spectacular place i have visited. Invited by a friend to spend the day, I didn't want to leave. Description of property is accurate. Stunning views, our beautiful Pacific ocean with Maui in the distance, tropical breeze, not to hot but sunny, beautiful clouds that provide the perfect daydream atmosphere. hope to return~Mahalo Nui

WORLD CLASS HOME

  • 5 of 5
The pictures are accurate, but only in so far as any camera cannot possibly capture the beauty of this place. This was hands down the best property I have ever rented. All surprises were good ones, like the rice maker and coffee grinder. All the little things you would have at home are not missing here. The pool is just spectacular and the fruit trees around the property abundant. Eileen was a wonderful owner and was always a quick phone call away, but never invasive. I will definitely rent again and highly recommend to anyone who wants a Hawaiian vacation to remember for a lifetime.

ESSENTIAL. AND WHERE IS THE SIXTH STAR?

  • 5 of 5
When you come to the Big Island, you MUST stay here.
YOU
MUST
STAY
HERE
Got that?
Prince, pauper, billionaire, fool..........I don't care who you are. If you miss this experience......and it IS an experience......you will have missed a transcendent week.
You should stay at least a week. At least.
A true story.... When I was fourteen, I had a paper route in Waikiki Beach. My last delivery was to a little bungalow right at the water's edge in the old Halekulani Hotel. An elderly couple came several years previously and stayed there. They came back the next year, got the same unit, and just STAYED. Told the management that they weren't leaving and to just give them the bill. They had been there for a couple of years when I started delivering to them. I left the paper in the crook of the hau tree next to the bungalow so it wouldn't get wet.
If I made a lot more money, I would do the same thing here....."Hey Eileen! I'm not leaving! Send me the bill!"
I'm not kidding.
