Welcome to the Hale Ke'oke'o - White House by the Sea!

Situated on the makai (ocean) side of the highway at Mauna Kea Beach Resort in Fairways North.....

Say 'Aloha' to your personal paradise at Mauna Kea, Hale Ke'oke'o - White House - By The Sea. This beautiful, modern home on the sunny Kohala Coast of the Big Island boasts a private lap pool and pool/guesthouse. Located behind the gates of the prestigious Mauna Kea Beach Resort, overlooking the North Fairways of the Mauna Kea Golf Course, our home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and showcases stunning Pacific Ocean, Maui, Kohala Mountain and Mauna Kea Golf Course views from nearly every room.

Multiple outdoor spaces are available for your enjoyment as well as a gourmet kitchen, interior open air courtyard, marble outdoor shower, dry sauna and private pool. Every one of the four bedrooms has it's own flat screen TV; three bedrooms have an adjoining bath and the fourth adjoins to the peaceful courtyard - that's three Master Suites! Three bedrooms are in the main house and the fourth is in the pool/guesthouse. The guest house is located on the private pool deck and is the perfect spot for in-laws, nannies, older teenagers, young adult children or the fourth couple in the group. The guesthouse has a queen bed and sofa bed, so can sleep up to 4 people. A floor plan is available for your review - please ask!

Spread out within this open concept island home as there is lots of space for everyone to enjoy, with a living room, dining room, kitchen/bar, family room and large deck for sharing time together. There is also a private lanai off the living room, an inner courtyard with chaise loungers and an outdoor home gym area with yoga equipment, weights and a fan bike.

Located within the exclusive Mauna Kea Beach Resort, this gated community offers access to the best beaches on the Big Island - Mauna Kea (or Kauna'oa) Beach and Hapuna Beach, as well as two world class golf courses, the Robert Trent Jones Sr designed Mauna Kea Golf Course and the Hapuna Prince Golf Course through The Club at Mauna Kea privileges. Seaside tennis courts, pool and beach service, incredible snorkelling and boogie boarding, a 2500 square foot fitness center and multiple restaurants are only a minutes walk away. Endless ocean sports and activities are available for your enjoyment.

The crescent shaped, natural sands of the Mauna Kea Beach is consistently ranked one of the best on the island and in the world. Public access to the beach is limited to 30 cars and the spots fill up by 8 AM daily! While you relax in our White House by the Sea, access to this incredible beach is all yours, any time of the day or night.

The Kohala Coast enjoys some of the best weather in the world with average temperature in the 80's and less than 8 inches of rainfall annually. All only 30 minutes north of the Kona Airport.

Why be stuck in a hotel room for hundreds of dollars a night when you can enjoy all the pleasures of your own Hawaiian home? The money you will save on food alone will astound you! Let the expansive interior and outdoor spaces of our home offer you an unforgettable Hawaiian vacation experience. Stay a week, stay a month, our Hale Ke'oke'o at Mauna Kea will be a dream come true for you as it was for us....

About Shannon Low

We are a family of five from Calgary, Alberta, Canada that has vacationed in the Hawaiian Islands for many years. It is our dream come true to own a small piece of paradise and a privilege to share it with others. The property was built in 1993, the year we were married and vacationed on the Big Island. We are thrilled that fate has allowed us to acquire this amazing property as we celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2013.

Shannon Low purchased this house in 2013

Why Shannon Low chose Mauna Kea

Mr. Rockefeller, who developed the area in the 1960's, said it best: 'A great beach deserves a great hotel'. The Mauna Kea Resort and Beach are hands down the best on the Big Island. Perfect sand, ocean views and manicured tropical landscaping make this location absolutely stunning. You will never want to leave!

What makes this house unique

Access to the exclusive Mauna Kea Beach, which is limited to the public, and the enjoyment of the many amenities of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel make our home the perfect pairing of private retreat and resort living. The home boasts an excellent balance of modern sophistication and Balinese living to perfectly capture the spirit of the islands. Beautiful wood and marble flooring with custom-cove wood ceilings adding to the luxurious furnishings. The multiple outdoor spaces and expansive views of ocean, Maui, mountain and golf course make this property truly spectacular. Secluded a notable distance from the highway, the property is quiet and peaceful. Driving into your expansive port-cochere and entering the formal yet inviting entryway, you will be welcomed by the warm island breezes and soothed by the always sunny Kohala weather. Sublime.

Below is a short list of the many awards given to the Resort:

Great stay, wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in several vacation rentals through VRBO/HomeAway and its competitors across the Hawaiian Islands, and Shannon's property at the Mauna Kea is one of the finest I've stayed at. It's just as it looks in the pictures, and is a wonderful location on the Island. I recommend getting the club package for access to the Mauna Kea hotel's amenities, and if you're staying on one of the nights they offer it, the Luau at the Mauna Kea is terrific.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for a great review! Mauna Kea is such a fabulous backdrop on the Big Island and I'm thrilled that you found the property exceeded your expectations! I hope to host you again one day!

Fantastic stay!

My family of four and my mother stayed in the home for a few weeks. Great stay and our children ages 3 and 6 really enjoyed it. House is incredibly well outfitted for cooking, both in the kitchen and a nice grill outside on the deck. House was very clean and the owner and rental representative were very helpful. Mauna Kea and it's property is a special place and has arguably one of the best beaches in the world. We would highly recommend this home to anyone as the majority of it is on a single level, it's very well outfitted and a great open floor plan.

Dream Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our 10 daystar at Hale Ke'oke'o by the sea was a truly memorable vacation! We traveled with our children and their families to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. There were 9 of us -3 families-, and we had plenty of room and privacy.

The owners were easy to work with and very responsive during the rental process. We were warmly welcomed by the property manager upon our arrival, and everything about the home was explained. She also gave us info regarding activities and events taking place on the island, and she was available if we needed her throughout our stay.

The home is a bit of paradise in paradise. The owners have thought of everything and their home is spectacular - yes, even better than the pictures. The house is well maintained and spotlessly clean. Everything is provided - from beach gear to exercise equipment, etc.

Being able to cook our meals for 9 in the huge gourmet kitchen or barbecue on the lovely deck after a "busy" day was perfect! We were all able to eat together comfortably. The kids loved the pool and the large screen TV. One day they even opted to stay home just to play together there. Having the ability to use the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince hotels and their awesome beaches and facilities was well worth the small extra cost.

Some highlights were the spectacular fireworks on Mauna Kea beach - so uncrowded we almost felt they were just for us. We attended Turtle Release Day celebrations at the Mauna Lani just down the road, and we loved exploring the tide pools in Puako where we saw 5 sea turtles up close! We especially enjoyed the views from the decks at the house- imagine watching the beautiful Hawaiian sunset and then swiveling your chair around to see the moon rise over the mountains. It doesn't get much better!

We highly recommend this property! This was the perfect family get-a-way. Our dream would be to return someday...

Owner's Response: Mahalo my wonderful guests! My intention is always to impress you with the home, it's amenities and the resort, and leave with you the potential for an unforgettable memory from the Big Island. It sounds like your family had an amazing time - I appreciated learning about both the fireworks and turtle release from you! - and I'm glad you found the house fit your large size so well. Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo!!!

Dream Escape

  • 5 of 5

Pictures shown on VRBO website are exactly what the White House on the Sea is – amazing! The location was just right; offering both proximity to many nice beaches, restaurants, and shopping centers all while being retreated enough for some peace and quiet. The house was stocked with almost everything you'd need and had high-end appliances, including the BBQ. My husband, being a professional chef, just loved cooking in the beautiful kitchen. Picking up your own groceries was just a short drive away at nearby grocery stores. Very clean, comfy, and gorgeous home. Wonderful having our very own pool to cool off in and lie in the sun with complete privacy. Both patios were perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets. Loved the big glass dining table where we could all eat together. Nice having the ability to use the Mauna Kea resort beach and facilities, as well. CAN’T WAIT TO GO BACK!!!

Wonderful Stay at Mauna Kea, Hale Ke'oke'o - White House - By The Sea.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 9 days in Nov/Dec 2013. We stayed there with some friends and 5 kids between the two couples. We had an amazing time. The place was beautiful and in immaculate condition. It is actually nicer in person than on the pictures, which is hard to believe! Although, the place only had 3 bedrooms in the main house, there was plenty of room for all of us and lots of room for the kids to run around. The gourmet kitchen was great and so spacious for all of us. The lanai off the dining area was perfect and we ate every meal outside. It was so nice to sit out there and listen to the birds singing and just enjoy the peacefulness of the area. The location was also really good and allowed us to explore both the central and northern part of the island. It was also close to so many different beaches which we went to everyday. The Mauna Lea beach was definitely one of the nicest and to be able to make use of the resort services came in really handy. The Concierge service was great and Lisette was so helpful. She helped us make numerous reservations (ziplining and swimming with dolphins) and made sure that we had everything that we needed. This house was so well equipped and had everything we needed to make our Big Island visit memorable. The owners of the place were fantastic at corresponding with us prior to and after our visit and provided a really good visitors guide/binder upon arrival. I would highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking for an amazing property, in a beautiful setting (right on the golf course and really close to the ocean).

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the glowing review of our White House by the Sea!

Everything you can possibly hope for and MORE!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Whitehouse for 8 days in January with 2 other couples. We were met by the agent who walked us through the house & gave us information about everything we needed to know. We were immediately impressed! She was lovely and the house was even more spectacular than it's photos! The house is completely stocked, there truly is nothing missing.....even soap, Kleenex, shampoo, conditioner, sunblock, skin moisturizer!! The kitchen is equipped with every necessity plus more! Condiments and spices made cooking easy as did the top shelf appliances. We were so fortunate to have been able to spend time at this lovely property and to have dealt with such responsive and kind owners and ,of course, being able to use the facilities at the world famous Mauna Kea Beach Hotel added to our fantastic stay. Five stars don't seem enough!
