The Hale Pua (“House of Flowers”) is maybe the only 6 bedroom/6 full bath luxury oceanfront home for vacation rental on the Kona Coast. This distinctive property was highlighted and pictured in a May 26, 2013 Wall Street Journal Hawaii-focus article.
Hale Pau is an oceanfront oasis with high-end comforts and details throughout. While this privately-owned home works wonderfully for large gatherings, it is just as warm & welcoming for four couples or a smaller family group.
The home boasts full baths for every bedroom, and a sprawling oceanfront great room with easy access to the kitchen and wetbar. Multiple wall-to-wall glass sliding doors on the oceanside allow steady trade winds to gently flow while enjoying the stunning water and sunset views. You can SEE or HEAR the ocean from nearly every room!
The spacious lanai with waterfall pool and spa extends the full length of the house along the oceanfront. A lush stretch of yard is the only separation between the rolling surf against the lava rock wall and the home’s lanai.
Just a 50 foot walk from the lanai along a wide rock wall is a small sandy beach with comfortable entry to abundant tide pools and out to the ocean for snorkeling, surfing or kayaking.
Your ocean view is unobstructed and stunning; no walking path between you and the sea which is the case in many local beachfront neighborhoods.
After a full day of sun & fun, kids (or adults!) can chill out watching their favorite movie or enjoying a video game in the media room featuring leather media recliners, 70” Smart Samsung flat screen 3D TV, 3D viewing glasses, surround sound & Sony PlayStation/Blu-ray player. Several 3D movies like Avatar, Life of Pi and more along with popular Play Station games have been provided for your enjoyment.
Cards and board games are available in the equally large game room adjacent to the media room.
The executive open-design dream kitchen features ocean view granite counter and dining room seating for 16. This chef-worthy kitchen is equipped with 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, 1 wine cooler, Subzero & Dacor appliances along with flatware & dishes to serve over 20 people.
Hale Pua is a special home that has been recently renovated with custom paint, window treatments, wall art and designer Restoration Hardware furniture. Each bedroom bears a fitting title in a brass doorplate, such as “Surf’s Up”, “Kona Coffee”, “Pua Suite” and so on. The Hawaiian bedroom décor showcases new duvets, pillows and tropical touches that will make you smile. All bedrooms have flat screen TVs with cable.
Each bedroom suite is described in detail below, but for starters, the gorgeous 2nd floor Master Suite, with panoramic ocean views, provides optimum whale and dolphin watching opportunities from the balcony. One guest suite is “Ohana” designed, also ocean view offering upstairs sleeping and separate downstairs living with wall-to-wall sliders opening onto the lanai.
The attractively updated, neutrally tiled baths are all full-size, three with double-sink vanities. Four of the six baths have very large tiled walk-in showers; the other two have deep shower tubs, one of those featuring a Jacuzzi. Vaulted beamed ceilings abound throughout the home, with finish work done in native Koa wood.
The large laundry is centrally located in the home, accessible from two entries, featuring two new Whirlpool Duet full-size washers & two dryers.
Hale Pua is perfectly located; close enough for adults and kids to walk to Old Kona Town and the pier. Set back 130 foot from prestigious Alii Drive, behind a private remote-controlled gate, the setting is peaceful and private.
The home has highspeed wireless internet access.

This is the second home we’ve owned in the Kona area, the first being up in the Kona Coffee belt of Holualoa. Having retired in 2009, we can now focus more on one of our favorite vacation spots – the Big Island! Only two previous owners (those who built Hale Pau and one other couple) meticulously cared for this estate. We plan to live up to their legacy for many years to come, maintaining and investing in Hale Pua as generously as did they.
We have three children, two grown and one in high school, three grandkids and a large extended family. We’ve struggled to find a home to rent with enough bedrooms and baths so kids weren’t in sleeping bags and stepping all over each other. When our family & friends join us on the Big Island, they all yearn for an oceanfront property with both pool and spa; the adults and younger ones alike want easy access to snorkel, kayak and boogie board in the ocean; the kids are thrilled if there’s a theater room for movies & video games; and everyone hopes to be near enough to walk to Kona town. We finally found the perfect venue with Hale Pua!
Stunning views & breezes, easy ocean access, plenty of spacious bedrooms & baths. Please come and enjoy.
