|Minimum Stay||5 - 10 nights|
Transcend paradise with our absolute oceanfront 3 story home located only blocks to Kailua-Kona town and within a guarded gated community of luxury estates. Your private oceanfront setting overlooks rich lava, white sands, crashing waves and Hawaii's famous romantic sunsets.
Ke’ala Ho’omaika’i (The Blessed Path) was artisan designed to offer you 180 degrees of ocean front shoreline, while relaxing in 7,000+ square feet of elegant living space. When you arrive and open your mahogany entry gates you will walk into a tropical meditation garden. A gentile cascading waterfall draws you along the meandering path and over the pond to the grand entrance. Even before entering your home the stunning view of the Pacific Ocean beyond the disappearing walls takes your breath away. Throughout your stay the beautiful Pacific Ocean will be the backdrop for all of your memories.
As you walk through the home you will be surrounded by commissioned art work done by several local artists. The entryway inlayed Monstera Leaves are by artist Alex Gupta and will lead you to the open great room / gathering area and beyond to the covered lanai, infinity pool and ocean. The gathering area offers a baby grand piano and comfortable seating for all.
Adjacent to the great room is your chef designed kitchen with a generous bar sink island for dining or serving. Included is a Wolf six burner stove/plus griddle and two ovens; the kitchen also offers a built in drawer microwave, two dishwashers, two full size sub-zero degrees refrigerator and freezer with ice-maker. Hand carved from granite and travertine tile is an original tropical floral design on the wall above the range. A more extensive list of amenities is listed below.
The main home is comprised of 3 master bedrooms and four baths. In addition there is an attached Ohana Suite (Hawaiian for Family Suite) we have named Hale Honu (Turtle House) on the ground level; to the left of the entry.
Your main three bedrooms are accessed by the grand spiral staircase. The second floor hosts two bedroom en suites:
Aloha Suite is oceanfront with a private furnished covered lanai and a full size hot tub overlooking the ocean. The King Size Tempurpedic bed faces the azure blue waves. Aloha Suite has another Gupta work of art: inlayed glass etched leaves under the bathtub and 'growing' up the shower walls. An impressive piece of art that has been displayed in both national and international publications.
From the stair case there is a covered outdoor pathway with magnificent views of Mount Hualalai leading to Dolphin Suite.
Dolphin Suite has a king size bed in a private tropical retreat setting. Your lounging lanai has a shoreline view looking north for what seems like forever. Ensuite shower. It also includes a flat screen TV with DVD player, iPod dock, ceiling fan, desk and office supplies.
On the third floor we proudly present:
Lanihau (Heavenly Hibiscus) offering an authentic 1800s converted to a king size Chinese Wedding Bed (originally owned by Bart Ward of Batman and Robin fame) looking out to the ocean on three sides, you are literally surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Pacific Ocean! The suite has two lanais: The oceanfront lanai has a full size backgammon table with breathtaking views up and down the coast as if perched in a crows nest. The mauka (mountain) view lanai is the ideal location to enjoy that first sip of Kona coffee while sharing in the view of the sun rising above the mountains each morning. There is also a twin size day bed for lounging, flat screen TV, exercise bike, desk, printer, office supplies, ceiling fan, small refrigerator, sink and library. This suite is an open air suite with no solid door for entry off of the stair case... similar to a loft but more private (people can not see in from below).
Hale Honu (Turtle House) which is located off of the entry way and to the right of the great room, a very private suite with it's own second entrance from the meditation garden. This Oceanfront Suite has a private covered lani and tropical garden, complete with large bamboo swing to while away the hours. Your king size bed faces directly to the ocean. There is a granite petite kitchenette with a small refrigerator and microwave. This suite has an artfully designed wheel chair accessible shower, flat screen TV, ipod dock, walk in closet and ceiling fan.
Sit on any one of the four ocean front lanais and be entertained by the spinner dolphins, whales and turtles. These are just some of the many visitors that on any given day may find their way to the ocean just steps away from your vacation paradise.
The grand lanai off of the great room has a large covered area gently leading to the open sunning area and ocean front infinity swimming pool. The ocean is just steps beyond. Your pool is divided into two pools to offer both heated and non-heated accommodations. The area is large enough for an event with the intimacy of a family gathering.
Ke’ala Ho’omaika’i is the most northern home in this gated community offering the only completely unobstructed northern coastline view. All coastline in Hawaii is given respect as sacred ground, but the area directly in front of your home is considered to be the most revered. Ka'ma'aina (local community) honor their ancestors at this location. Christenings, Proposals, and Wedding Ceremonies take place on the shoreline adjacent to your home. This spot is also considered one of the best shore diving locations in the world.
Just a few steps away is the community park that offers Olympic size pool, indoor sports center, tennis courts, pickle ball, horseshoes, soccer and baseball fields, a community garden walking track and an outdoor roller rink.
You are just a short stroll to a sandy waveless beach.
Just a two minute drive is the International Market Place and the Kona Brewery. The International Market Place offers local gifts, artwork and cuisine. Kona Brewery is the home of the world renown island brews.

This home was exactly as pictures advertised. No surprises! Great location and view. Excellent kitchen for big dinners and lovely outdoor seating area!
Wonderful, beautiful and amazing! We have stayed in many different homes on several islands and this was by far the nicest home that we have ever been in! We were lucky enough to stay for 2 weeks. When you first walk in, you see the beautiful full ocean view from almost everywhere in the home. You have the beach park to your right and empty lots to your left and only ocean in front of you. It feels like absolute privacy while still being in a completely safe and secure setting. We woke up to whales breaching, dolphins frolicking and there was even a family of turtles that lived in the small cove right in front of the home where myself and the kids could swim and snorkel with them every day.
From first booking the property with Adeline to having some great talks with the owner Sissie, it was an absolute pleasure to deal with them. They gave great tips for the island and our stay in general. It is also worth noting that the proceeds of this rental go to The Children of Hawaii! What a kind and generous owner, it makes staying in this breathtaking home feel even better! I am a physician that also works with children and it is heartwarming to see this level of altruism. And she paid such close attention to us and our stay that it is very clear how much they all truly care. Sissie succeeded in making us feel like her home was our home!
The house itself was in immaculate condition. Very clean, spacious and well equipped. It was lacking nothing. It was more than large enough for our extended family. The rooms and views are spectacular. All the furnishings, appliances and artwork were extremely high end. The pictures are accurate but actually do not do justice to how nice the home truly is. We spend numerous hours on the lanai watching the sunsets and having the kids laugh and splash around in the amazing horizon pool.
Even though it is a very private setting it is also conveniently close to the airport, COSTCO, amazing beaches and the shops and stores of Kona town.
We would be honored if Sissie allowed us to come and stay and we would not hesitate at all in returning again and again and again!!!
Thank you so much Sissie and Adeline!
our group had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The lanai provided the most amazing views of ocean life - whales breaching right in front of us! We cooked all our meals in the fabulous kitchen and ate out on the lanai every night, each of us taking turns toasting on how grateful we were to be in such a beautiful part of the world. Thank you to the owner for making our stay comfortable and welcome. You truly have a gem of a place. Mahalo - hope to be back again some day
Just back from a fabulous week in Kona! Many times when one's expectations are set high and they collide with reality the results are disappointing.....not so with this beautiful home. The setting is magnificent; both private and yet conveniently located to town. We sat on the lanai watching whales and dolphins sipping a pina colada, made wonderful meals in the well equipped kitchen and used the central location to head south to the best snorkeling on the island then north to some startlingly beautiful beaches. We had six adults in our group and the house provided both the privacy we, at times, desired as well as space for us to all be together at the pool and for meals. Our thanks to the owner and the property manager for making our vacation so memorable!
We absolutely loved the place. Would love to stay there again maybe with our family or friends. It was quiet , relaxing and beautiful. Loved just relaxing by the pool and watching the whales and cooking in the amazing kitchen.
With the visits by the owner, landscaping, pool person, etc it is obvious that she cares a lot about the upkeep of her place. We would definitely go back.
When we opened the front entrance gate we immediately knew that it was going to be a wonderful week! The home was as described and very comfortable for every couple. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were extremely comfortable and beautifully equipped. Access to the ocean was great as well. The kitchen was a great entertaining and gathering spot as was the grill and pool area. This home is perfect for a large group that wants to be together yet with plenty of personal space as well. Every lanai is very comfortably furnished.
Great location close to shopping and restaurants but far enough away to feel that you are in your own private heaven!
This home is an absolute 5 star experience (minus the wait staff)!
