Our stunning Hawaiian Paradise home is located just a few blocks from the waterfront village of Kona, Hawaii in a private gated community of luxury homes. With a nearly constant year around temperature in the 80s, and a cool ocean breeze, this custom Hawaiian home is as tropical as you can get. Overlooking the crashing waves on the lava and sandy beach coast, the home features a designer infinity pool with two waterfalls, a sandy bottom wading pool, huge lanais, and two courtyard ponds with their own waterfalls in a 'Jurassic' garden setting. There is even a private 'island' dining patio next to the waterfall overlooking the dramatic Kona surf. The house comes fully furnished with a designer dream kitchen, open air oceanfront dining room, kitchen bar, living room, entertainment room, an unbelievable Master Suite with panoramic ocean views, a pampered oceanview study, two Tropical Guest Suites, each with their own separate entrance and opening onto the lush courtyard and waterfalls, and a separate Ohana Cottage Suite with its own kitchen, kitchen bar, sitting area and lanai. The master suite comes with its own private whale watching tower! The house sleeps eight, two in each suite plus futons for children.
'HALE KONA A'EKAI' is a unique oceanfront private custom home meaning 'the home by the wash of the sea'. It was intricately designed to capture the essence of waterfront Hawaiian living. Thatched ceilings, open walls, louvered teak windows, ten foot teak doors, endless lanais, and tropical landscaping, all help to capture the spirit of the islands. The house is exquisitely detailed with imported teak, bamboo, marble, granite, and quartzite throughout. The home has been featured in several magazines. The grounds are equally impressive with rare tropical flowers and palms, four waterfalls and a stunningly impressive bathing pool with an infinity edge. A stairway bridge takes you across to the island pedestal where you can lavish in a dinner surrounded by water with simultaneous views of the sunset, waterfalls and the crash of the waves! Enchanting, magical and romantic--there is so much more to describe---but you must see it for yourself! Unsurpassed luxury. Come stay with us and experience the mystique and beauty of the Big Island!

Thank you for sharing your fantastic home. After years of studying architecture, it was wonderful
to finally see a home that the great architects said how a home should be built but never quite accomplished it.
Form follows function, living within the surrounding environment was finally accomplished. I understand
your husband designed and built this home and I’d like to give him praise. It’s no wonder everybody LOVES
this home, it’s at the core of the human soul. I’d love to see his other designs some day but I don’t think
any one could out match this one. I am so thankful there was an opening for us to see this work of art.
God granted me a “bucket list” blessing. Thank you,
We had an unforgettable two weeks with family and friends. The house is so well designed and is cooled with fans and balmy breezes and large opening doors to the infinity pool and wonderful areas for evening drinks watching the sunsets. The house is in a secure gated compound. Chef Paul created a wonderful dinner for our friends and relations from around the world. All generations enjoyed the pool. Some days we relaxed by the pool and we also went sightseeing and to downtown Kona.
What a fantastic stay we had for my 50th B-Day. Sheree was so helpful getting the arrangements made before hand, and Lorena was such a terrific welcoming hostess. This place is beyond amazing. We ended up dumping most of our activity plans so we could bask in the luxury of the house and its gardens, pool, ocean views and cool breezes. Oh, and the incredible sunsets topped off each day. Totally relaxed me and made some great memories for the whole family.
We had an AMAZING time, thank you :)
Our stay was a complete dream. The house is exquisite (and exquisitely situated). The only downside was the apparent lack of cloth napkins and paltry number of dish towels/paper towels. Otherwise we felt as if our every need had been anticipated. Truly a perfect holiday!
That's what we said when we came through the door. Although we had seen the photos of the house, they really can't do justice to the experience. We said "wow" more than a few times.
We had 5 adults in our group, and the bedroom accommodations worked perfectly for us. When we left, my wife told me that this was the best vacation we had ever taken, and we didn't do much more than hang out at the house.
A few suggestions for the traveler. Bring your favorite Hawaiian slack-key guitar music on your IPhone or MP3 player, because you can plug it into the audio system throughout the house.
Also, check-in time is 4 pm sharp. If your plane arrives at 11:30 am, what do you do? In our case, we drove up the coastline for a sitdown lunch at a beachfront restaurant, and then went shopping at the bigbox and healthfood stores on the way back, and before we knew it, it was almost 4 pm.
The rest of it will remain a surprise. We're coming back.
This was the perfect vacation home for our recent trip to the Big Island; almost a touch of Bali in Hawaii. Hotels are always a challenging/expensive option when traveling with 20-something kids and their significant others, so we were delighted to find this home. However, when we walked through the private gate into the secluded courtyard and saw the spectacular views and luxurious spaces in the home, everybody looked at each other and said "we may not have to leave all week." The spaces work perfectly for four couples and the kitchen was well equipped (my only complaint is that the outside grill does not work very well, even after the propane tank was replaced) even for a gourmet cook.
The landlord is strict but very reliable and responsive. I have already recommended this house to good friends and would happily stay again in the future.
World Class Golfing, Deep Sea Fishing, Awesome Snorkeling/Scuba, Volcano Viewing, Waterfalls & Tropical Gardens, Award winning White, Black and Green Sand Beaches, Submarine Rides, Dinner Cruises, Hawaiian Luaus, Kona Coffee Farms, An Olympic size public swimming and lap pool is free and open daily just 1/2 block outside our gated community!, So just relax in the luxurious surroundings, enjoy the adjacent white sand beach and lagoon, explore the village of Kona or venture out to one of the endless Big Island adventures, Eleven of the fourteen world climates are found only on this very unique island! The largest of the Hawaiian Islands has it all!
