Built high on a hill and surrounded by coffee plantations and forest land, this 6,400 sq.ft. estate home is called Huelani which means 'Opening Up to Heaven.' Cathedral ceilings, full picture windows and French doors thoughout the home allow for dramatic, panoramic views of Kailuna-Kona's magnificent coastline and its legendary sunsets. Designed for privacy and luxurious comfort, this elegantly appointed home is decorated with traditional Hawaiian artwork. For its unique design, Huelani was featured in a Hawaiian architectural magazine.
Huelani is situated at an elevation of 1,300 feet, allowing for near perfect temperatures year round with no need for air conditioning or heating. Windows of the home can be left open year round to enjoy the fresh ocean breezes of Hawaii.
Professionally landscaped with lush tropical foliage on a spacious one-acre lot, Huelani's back yard features a large lap pool with a stunning dolphin waterfall. There is also a beautiful pond, which adjoins a private Jacuzzi spa surrounded by lush tropical foliage, giving the feeling you're in a rainforest. You may pick fresh fruit from the home's orchard for your breakfast. There are avocados, mangos, limes, lemons, oranges, kumquats, and banana trees.
Located in a gated community, Huelani is in a very quiet and private neighborhood. For nature-lovers, there are hiking trails nearby, about a 3-4 minute drive from the house up on Koloko drive.
From the front entrance of the home, you enter the spacious living room which features 24-foot high ceilings, native Koa wood floors, swivel bucket chairs and comfortable sofas for entertaining or simply napping!
This lovely home features one bedroom downstairs with a queen bed and three upstairs (all king beds). One of the bedrooms upstairs is quite large and is like an apartment with a private entrance. It also has a large couch for an extra person to sleep. There are three couches downstairs for guests to sleep on as well. We also have a air mattress available. The linens and the beds are very comfortable and can be considered high quality.
There are many dining areas of the home. Besides the formal dining area, there is an informal eating area near the kitchen. There is a large dining table by the pool. The lanai (which is totally screened in) also features a dining table.
Though far above the humidity of the beach areas and the noise of cars and tourists, the home is a short drive to the town of Kona where there are great restaurants and many things to do. The home is also close to the beach and the airport.
This lovely estate home would be perfect for a honeymoon, family reunion or couples retreat. Huelani would also be suitable for a family vacation or a couple taking an extended vacation.
When you arrive at Huelani, you may find the pantry already stocked with groceries. Our caretaker will shop and provide other services at a nominal charge. Just let her know what services you would like when you contact her before your arrival. (You can work out the charges with her.)
We also can refer you to a chef for cooking services too. Just let us know when you book.
For the rate charged, Huelani is a beautiful value. You will enjoy its spaciousness, privacy, and the unique ambiance of this special estate home.

I am the founder and CEO of a media advertising company. I bought my Kona home as a second home to escape from the mainland's hustle and bustle.
I looked at other homes before I bought this one, but I didn't care for the heat and humidity of the beach areas. Being at a high elevation, you can open your windows year-round and enjoy the fresh Hawaiian breezes. I also loved the spaciousness of this home and the large one-acre lot!
With so much open space surrounding my home and few neighbors, there is a tranquility here and a 'Four Seasons resort' feeling up on the hill above everything. It seems like you're far removed from everything, but everything is close by at your fingertips, just a short drive away when you want anything. Staying here is the best of both worlds!
