What are the sounds you hear as you dream of that fantastic vacation over and over again? The sound of the sea lapping at your board as you paddle out to catch a wave; or the whoosh of your golf club as you pull back to tee off at a breathtakingly beautiful golf course, like Makalei or Mauna Lani. Or is it the whine of the fishline as a blue marlin is on the run. Or the sound of hoofs as you ride horseback through lush pastures and take in the spectacular panoramic views of the mountains and coastline. It might be the sound of the doorbell announcing the arrival of your private masseuse who will ease your tired and stressed muscles with a therapeutic massage. Or….. it sounds like nothing, just the rustle of leaves and whispers of soft trades.
What better place to bring it all together than at your own private Kona Coffee Estate, a retreat nestled in a gated community on the slopes of Hualalai…..Hale Ho’omaha, House of Rest.
Every room extends an invitation. An invitation to relax, read, take a nap or enjoy a bubble bath. It’s a place where balance between traditional Indian décor blends within a natural mixture of colors and textures of Hawaiiana.
Walking through the custom teak entry doors with etched leaded glass, you view a stylish foyer with wood carved pineapple pedestal table and dolphins sculptured in koa wood reaching up to cathedral ceilings above and direct ocean views ahead. One is immediately embraced by the promise of calmness and relaxation. Your feet feel the smooth, coolness of gleaming marble floors and two delightful seating areas beckon as you enter. You are finally HERE!
The spacious and elegant master bedroom ensures your privacy in the north wing of the home. In the en-suite master bath you will delight in the large jetted Whirlpool bathtub for two, the lustrous marble walls surrounding you in the bath and shower, his and hers granite counter top vanity area; solid cherrywood doors and cabinets plus a large walk in closet.
The king sized bed looks straight out to the blue sea. In the corner there’s a comfy seating area to put your feet up and read or write; a flat screen tv mounted perfectly to watch from the heavenly bed and just steps away on the lanai is the large spa from which to watch the sunset at the golden hour and observe the delightful phenomena of a “green flash” sunset.
The beautiful carved wood dining table seats six. The gourmet kitchen with custom natural solid cherrywood cabinetry looks elegant against the black granite countertops and marble floors. Top of the line stainless steel appliances and a center island assure an organized environment. Counter stools afford additional seating in the kitchen at the ample peninsula.
In the living room the leather couches lend themselves to comfort and luxury with views to the garden and ocean. A large flat screen HD TV offering a variety of channels, a blue ray DVD and wireless internet throughout the home contribute to the entertainment possibilities of this estate villa.
In the south wing of the home are two additional bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms, his and hers vanity sinks and walk in showers, again using the marble and granite for appointments. The rooms are elegant, casual and stylish with sweeping views of the ocean. Each bedroom has a door opening to the lanai to access the pool and spa.
Hale Ho’Omaha is your own wonderful private sanctuary. Bask in the oversize whirlpool bath, sink into the luxurious beds or kick back and watch your favorite shows on TV, jump into the hot tub or take a dip in the shimmering pool. Grill a steak on the outdoor barbeque, prepare a meal with fresh local fruits, vegetables, fish and locally raised beef, or call in your own private chef for a special treat. Sunsets are viewed year round from every room and night skies bring on some of the best star gazing on the planet. Sit poolside and watch the twinkle of the lights of Kona and don’t forget…. the moon casts its heavenly glow on the water as it sinks into the ocean.
The large capacity washer and dryer make laundry a snap and the separate laundry room is spacious and utilitarian. There are ceiling fans in every room, a three car garage, barbeque and outdoor bar area, outdoor shower and plenty of lounging areas poolside.
Call to book your romantic retreat or family get together, this home will sleep from a single person to 10 people.
