It's back! After almost 2 years of being a private residence, Hale Kakahi is available again for your enjoyment!
HALE KAKAHI IS YOUR VISION of the ultimate Hawaiian retreat. In Hawaiian, it means "unique, outstanding, one-of-a-kind house," a perfect name for this oceanfront estate. The owners have given thought to every aspect of your vacation enjoyment from free internet to a billiards room, read on!
ENTERING THE HALE KAKAHI GROUNDS, you travel down a long drive surrounded by plumeria, monkeypod, banana, and palm trees until you reach the elegant two-story home. The front door opens to the foyer and Great Room, where you are overwhelmed by the spectacular ocean view through floor-to-ceiling windows and across a broad lanai that extends across the entire front of the house. The interior is a wood-lover's dream with floors, walls, ceilings, counters and cabinets built from nine exotic woods, including koa, mango, Spanish cedar and purple heart.
BESIDES THE GREAT VIEW, the Great Room offers a comfortable place to visit and relax, with good reading lights and a TV/DVD for evening entertainment. For meals, you'll find a gourmet kitchen with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and other premium appliances, including two convection ovens. The cooktop/breakfast bar countertop is made from a single, gorgeous piece of monkeypod wood. You'll eat many meals on the lanai, and for indoor dining the travertine marble table in the dining area seats six.
A SMALL OFFICE OFF THE GREAT ROOM leads to the master bedroom. With a room like this, you won't want to get out of bed! The bed is a California King with a high-quality pillow-top mattress, and the room also has its own TV and DVD player. The bedroom has an en suite bath with a walk-in shower, Jacuzzi bathtub/spa, and double vanity. The entire house has ceiling fans and lots of floor-to-ceiling windows to keep you comfortable in our temperate climate (no air-conditioning!). An estate wouldn't be complete without a pool and the 30-foot lap pool is just outside the master bedroom.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! That was just the upper level! Two oceanfront suites on the lower level provide accommodations for up to four more guests (accessed by an external staircase). The Akahi Suite consists of a main bedroom, adjacent bedroom/sitting room, and private bath. The bedroom has a firm king bed. The adjacent sitting room is equipped with conveniences including a Queen bed (great for young children to be close to parents!) TV, DVD player, radio/CD and telephone. Both rooms have ocean views and the full bath has a tub shower. The smaller Elua Suite has the same great ocean view as the Akahi Suite, with a queen bed and a full bath with stall shower. Guests in the Akahi and Elua suites can enjoy their morning coffee on the private lower-level lanai. In the separate Garage building there is also a Billiard's Room for guests to use, so bring your best aim!
THE NEARLY 3-ACRE HALE KAKAHI ESTATE includes a diverse mix of lush vegetation, manicured lawns, exotic fruit trees, waterfall, ponds, fountains, palm trees, magnificent lava oceanfront -- even a 50-yard golf tee and green! In season, whales pass by and play in the surf just offshore. The estate is in the quiet residential area of Hawaiian Beaches, which is great for walking. The town of Pahoa, with several restaurants and interesting shops, is less than 15 minutes by car. Hilo is about a 30-minute drive, and Volcanoes National Park is less than an hour away!
