At long last our dream of living on the Big Island of Hawaii has come true. Lynn is a retired CPA. Kathy is a retired nurse attorney. We explore and photograph our gorgeous island paradise from our home base in Waimea.

Kathy Harrison purchased this house in 2013

Over many years we've traveled the world and experienced a wide range of vacation rentals. We bought this property for the express purpose of converting it to a vacation rental that will include the good points and none of the bad. It's centrally located, secure, and large. We've put in new plumbing, new electrical, new solar power, new comfortable beds and comfortable furniture. The pool is clean and newly re-plastered. We view the property from your eyes and make every effort to have this be the perfect venue for your vacation on our Big Island of Hawaii. The grounds are a tropical oasis. We've poured close to a million dollars into Hale Hoku'ao, and it shows. We hope you agree.

Your personal, gated enclave retreat awaits you. Private and visually secluded by lava rock walls and tropical plantings, yet located in a quiet family neighborhood. 300 ft from the Pacific Ocean, 30 feet from the 11th Fairway of Kona Country Club's ocean course. Centrally located for exploring the Big Island. Close to grocery, gas, drugstore, etc.

Fantastic Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week-long stay during the hurricane scare. Kathy was great! Although she didn’t want to alarm us, she did advise us to be prepared. She kept in contact with us prior to the storm as well as after. She and Lynn were so thoughtful to come and move the outside furniture for us. They refused to let us help them! Kathy was very accommodating if we had to evacuate or if our flight were to become delayed or canceled. All of this turned out to be unnecessary; but it didn’t hurt to be extra cautious.

Having ceiling and floor fans in each room helped immensely to cool off the house. We were told by locals that it was unusually humid, even for this time of year.

The house was perfect for all 10 of us. The multiple tvs were nice to have since we had so many people staying there. Having so many bedrooms, each with their own tvs, provided some quiet time for some, when needed. It was spacious enough where we didn't get in each other's way and on each other's nerves! My niece couldn’t have said it any better: “It was a nice place to relax during the storm! The pool was fun to play in. The lounge chairs made the pool area better so those not swimming could relax while watching the people swimming.” We had a wonderful vacation and can’t wait to return.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Hale Hoku'ao despite Hurricane Iselle. Thankfully, there was no damage in Kona. Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa protect the Kona side and give us sunny days! It was a real pleasure to meet your sweet family. Please come and stay with us again! With warm aloha, Kat

So sad to have to leave!!!

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from a week long stay at Hale Hoku'Ao with my family - 6 adults and 3 children. It was the ideal place for our visit to Hawaii. The 5 bedrooms and bathrooms were the perfect accommodation for us. And the large gathering areas were great! The outdoor areas are wonderful as well. We used the grill almost every night for dinner and spent hours in and around the pool. Having the golf course just across the backyard was great, too! We were able to walk down to the ocean through the course each evening and enjoy the sunset. As a family of runners, we enjoyed running each morning on the golf course.
I can't say enough about Kat's willingness to be available for any help that we needed and for her recommendations for good child-friendly beaches and restaurants. Also I was impressed with the fact that the pool is fenced and locked and that there were life vests available for all the children in our group.
We all had such a wonderful time at this home that we were sad to have to leave and hope to return someday. I would highly recommend this vacation rental!!!

We were a group of 8 (5 adults and 3 children)& we found that Hale Hoku'Ao had more than enough room for everyone. The house and yard were beautiful and well maintained. Our children loved the pool!! The house truly felt like a home and was stocked with everything we needed. We throughly enjoyed our time at Hale Hoku'Ao, but what really made the experience was Kathy, the home owner. She was a real pleasure to deal with, right from the very first email response to my inquiry. She went above and beyond to ensure we would have the necessities for a comfortable stay. The communication was great, and prompt. I would recommend this property to families and large groups. This was our second stay in Hawaii, but our first VRBO experience.We were a little nervous at first, just the level of trust required, but Kathy set my mind at ease and the house was just described. We would stay here again if we return to Hawaii, especially if travelling with a group, or multiple families. In addition, if you've never been to Hawaii, and are considering this property for your next vacation, my advice??? BOOK IT!! Hawaii is heaven on Earth, and the big island has a lot to explore and experience!!

LOVELY family home

  • 5 of 5
We are sadly home from our Big Island vacation. The highlight of our trip was definitely this beautiful home. There was plenty of space for our family get together of 10 ranging in age from 1 to 74. The main floor bedroom was perfect for our parents and the car bed and pack n play was very much appreciated by the youngest of our party. There is room to be together and lots of room for everyone to be apart too. Linens are high quality, there are many extra's including life jackets for the kids, pool toys, coffee grinder, blender, lots of seating indoors and out. The location is quiet but central with a grocery within easy walking distance. Highlights included walking thru the golf course in the evening to go watch the sun set and walking down to the nearby beach to rent paddle boards and kayaks. Kat was very easy to work with and very accommodating.

Loved this house!

  • 4 of 5
We were lucky enough to spend two weeks in this lovely house and enjoyed every minute. The house is huge allowing for guests to spread out and relax or come together for meals and game playing or TV watching. The owner was a delight to work with. You can tell that she truly cares that her guests are having a wonderful time. Having a personal pool to play in was a big plus, and the front lanai was the perfect place for morning coffee or an evening meal. We would absolutely rent here again.

WHAT A GREAT HOUSE!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I am reluctant to write this review.... because everything we were looking for was here and when we pick our dates to return for another two weeks next year other people will want to spend their vacation there too. This house has first class appliances, nice dishes and utensils, the beds were comfortable and the linens were lovely. The pool was very nice and clean and was certainly well used by our whole family also Kat and Lynn provided us with very large and thick beach towels. A pool man came and tested the pool every week and also the grounds were well maintained by a yardman and his family. We found the owners just so easy to work with and will surely be in touch with them again real soon to tell them when we want to come again next year. If you decide to visit Kona, you should definitely consider this property, particularly if you are traveling with family. By the way, our 2 year old great grandson learned to swim in this pool and never wanted to get out, was unbelievable.

You are well located at Hale Hoku'ao to explore the fathomless grandeur of the Big Island of Hawaii. The island is immense and best explored in quadrants. You can see and do as much or as little as you please and come away from this Paradise a changed person. Walk along an orchid and fern lined path to humbling waterfalls or drive up to the visitor center at Mauna Kea and look out above the clouds in all directions. Learn to surf or paddle board on the bluest water you will ever see. Photography is our passion and a big reason why we chose to retire here. The best way to improve your photography is to stand in front of better stuff. You can do that here. Golf on world class courses. See creation in progress at Kilauea. Superlatives are inadequate to describe the Big Island of Hawaii.
