Fruit Orchard Hale: Tons Of Edible Fruits Straight From The Orchard

Homes Over Kona: Property Description

Enjoy resort living on hillside slopes at a perfect elevation. Aromatic tropical breezes, spring-like temperatures, and birds singing in this sub-climate are to be sure to tickle your senses. Not too hot, not too cold, Homes Over Kona are located centrally in the historic, quaint, artsy coffee town above Kona called Holualoa. Only 10 min. away, Kona’s shoreline beaches, downtown, and neighboring Captain Cook Town are all very conveniently located.

Homes Over Kona is a complex of four private homes of different sizes and this particular listing is for the Fruit Orchard Hale (1B). Description of this unit is listed in detail below. To rent the whole property exclusively please visit vrbo #482045 or homeaway #482045vb.

This complex is newly built (2013) and furnished modern-tropical, with an Asian-Hawaiian flair. The 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa is communal. Exclusive use of the Private Infinity Edge Pool with Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River is reserved for the main Grandview Hale.

The pools are all solar heated and designed to feel as if you are sitting in natural Hawaiian waters. Both the private Main pool and Waterfall Lagoon pool boast deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and giant lava beds to lay and relax on. The Waterfall Lagoon has a 15 foot waterfall drop that trickles and streams down creating an ambiance that only the sounds of water can offer.

The gardens are abundant with walking paths full of fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Yes, you can even pick and make your own lei. Majestic Monkey Pod trees canopy over the property and provide perfect shade for reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock. Fruit trees are everywhere and you are welcome to pick what you can eat. Don’t be surprised to find a bunch of bananas, basket of passion fruit or a fresh pineapple waiting on your lanai when you visit us. Other fruits on the property include plum, serinam cherries, guava, lychee, mangosteen, rambutan, mango, papaya, star fruit, pomegranate, avocados, coffee, many kinds of citris, and our secret miracle berry. Guests will also receive a bag of our local Kona coffee that is grown, picked and roasted right here in Holualoa.

Homes Over Kona is a unique property designed to keep you in tune with the aloha spirit of Hawaii. We want to share our air, our fauna, our wildlife. We want to welcome you to our homes.

Fruit Orchard Hale: Unit Description

Surrounded by numerous fruit trees, pineapples, and coffee, this unit is uniquely named the Fruit Orchard Hale. Some of the specimens include avocado, mango, banana, guava, passion fruit, and pineapple. Walking paths right through the orchard make you feel as if you are in the garden of eden as you pick fruit and continue on your walks. There is always something in season and ready for your consumption.

Although this unit only has 2 bedrooms, it feels spacious due to it's large lanai that looks over a mini coffee orchard and the horizon in the distance. Relax in your living room in front of a large flat screen HDTV or read a book on the adjacent lanai, furnished with asian inspired teak carved furniture. The expansive 8' slider leads from the living room to the outside lanai connecting your spaces and introducing tropical breezes, country side viewsk, and a feeling of openness for you to share the beauties of Hawaii. The TV is set up to the internet and offers Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, etc. Complimentary Netflix allows you to watch a generous variety of movies for the whole family. This unit is perfect for unwinding after a busy ocean day snorkeling and diving or mountain hiking and biking.

The lanai also has an enclosed screened in portion for cooking in a bug free environment while enjoying the fresh feeling of Holualoa. The outdoor covered cooking facilities include an oven, range, and microwave with a door leading directly into the kitchen area where there is the refrigerator, bar sink, dishwasher, and counter space for preparations. The table is also counter height to allow for additional preparation space as well as additional dining space for 4.

The compact kitchen boasts mahogany custom cabinets with granite countertops and a bar top for a casual snack or chat. Inside the cupboards you'll find a complete set of cookware, dishes, and utensils, to complement the host of time-saving appliances: microwave, blender, coffeemaker, rice maker and dishwasher (to name a few). Even if you love our kitchen, we also provide an outdoor BBQ so you can watch our fabulous sunsets turn to dusk.

There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a full bed suited with well designed beddings. The bathroom shows off Japanese design using porcelain tiles and pebbles to decorate the floor. An 18' deep soaking tub allows for relaxation in luxury after your hard hike or beach day. This house can accommodate 4 persons in beds, however a pull out sofabed can be arranged to accommodate an additional 2 persons (for an extra fee).

Other amenities include a large laundry washer and dryer (outdoors) along with beach towels and extra pillows and linens. You can enjoy complimentary high speed wireless internet for all of your electronics as well as access to a complimentary Netflix account where you will find a vast array of movies for the whole family. Cable TV is not offered in this unit, however internet TV is installed for movies, youtube, news, sports, etc. A sports gym only 10 minutes away offers day or short stay passes which give you full access to their facility at a minimal charge.

As mentioned in earlier descriptions, Homes Over Kona offers several private homes to choose from. This particular unit shares the use of the 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa. (The Private Infinity Edge Pool, Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River are reserved for the main Grandview Hale). All pools are solar heated boasting deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and designed with giant lava beds to lay and relax on. Waterfalls trickle down the sides and above your heads offering the true ambience of vacationing in Hawaii.

This 2 acre property has over 2000 feet of walking paths and country roads to explore. If you look carefully, you may also find a mini lava tube. Gardens are full of Hawaiian fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful local plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Available are lei making tools, suggestions and instruction guides to show you how. Yes, you can pick and make your own sweet smelling leis to wear to dinner. Fruit trees are everywhere and when ripe, you are welcome to pick what you can eat. Coffee plants abound offer you the true feel of a coffee farm. Reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock is made perfect under the Majestic Monkey Pod trees which canopy the property and provide perfect shade. The 1000 foot elevation sub climate introduces comfortable breezes and temperatures specifically experienced in this Holualoa area and nothing like the sticky hot found along the shoreline or the cold found at the much higher elevations. 1000 feet is the perfect elevation. You found the best.

About Emily Hill

These homes were designed by the owners who fell in love with the land and built the homes to represent Hawaii with minimal disturbance to the 2 acres it sits on. The owners careers are in the art, design and event businesses and these attributes are made evident in the homes offered.

The colors, themes, and landscaping to the homes compliment the nature which abounds us. Black and red for lava. Green and browns for nature and deep blues represent our oceans. Genuine stone and woods are used to finish and furnish these homes.

The entertainment areas are just that. The owners specifically designed each area to entertain your senses. TV's are large and lay flat against the walls. Spaces are open to enhance family communication and scenic viewing pleasure.

The owners also have a love for cooking and this is evident in the design of the kitchens (especially with focus on the Grandview Hale). All kitchens are fitted with genuine granite countertops, real wood cabinets, and a true focus on making cooking a convenient experience.

Adventure is what brought these owners to the Big Island and perfection is what made them settle in the town above Kona, Holualoa. The Big Island has the best of everything. Almost every climate is attainable here ranging from snow capped mountain tops to tropical rain forests and hot sandy beaches. The owners love diving, and it doesn't get better than this anywhere else in the islands of Hawaii. Hiking too, is a favorite, and these owners have explored many. They have left a suggestion book with details so that you can find children friendly beaches and trails as well as some of the more challenging ones.

Emily Hill purchased this house in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Emily & Chris,

Thank you so much for such a peaceful retreat. Your villa is so quiet and peaceful we did not have any problem relaxing. We loved coffee and tea on the deck in the morning, listening to the birds. Everything we needed was here and worked great. The pool is spotless and so relaxing with the waterfall. All we needed to cook with was already in the kitchen and this villa is a great place for a toddler. Thank you for meeting all of our requests and for being great neighbors. We had a wonderful time.

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Overall are stay was wonderful. We had 3 family's in the house and there was plenty of room. The property was beautiful. The kitchen was amazing although we did have some trouble w/ the appliances (could have been user error). We had small children with us so just hanging at the house and enjoying the pool & hot tub was great. Wonderful outdoor space!
Not too far of a drive down to the beaches (15-20 min), definitely worth it to be up on the hillside w/ beautiful views!
We had a few crawlers and 1 new walker and some of the stairs were a little hard to maneuver w/ those kiddos (but nothing we couldn't deal with) Only real complaint would be that the bedrooms (other then the master) are pretty small and the beds in those rooms were uncomfortable.
The owners were very helpful on a few occasions that we needed them.

Not too hot, not too cold, Homes Over Kona are located centrally in the historic, quaint, artsy coffee town above Kona called Holualoa. Perfect for a quiet cup of coffee and morning stroll. Only 10 min. away, you will enjoy Kona’s shoreline beaches with every water sport imaginable, downtown shopping or pier fishing, neighboring Captain Cook Town, or kayaking with the Dolphins at Kealakekua Bay. You can enjoy every direction very conveniently within a matter of minutes.

This particular island is famed for the ocean diving and snorkeling along with all the ocean activities you can imagine. White, black, or even green sand beaches can be found here. The only active volcano and endless number of glorious hiking trails await you including the famed Waipio Valley and even a quickie hike just a short drive away. During certain times of the year, you may even experience snow on the caps of Mauna Kea as you capture unforgettable sunsets and stargaze the most glorious night skies imaginable. These are the skies we share with some of the famed observatories available for tours. Only this island can offer such variety in such a compact way. Lucky you, our property is right in the middle of it all.
