Holualoa House Rental Photos and Description
Garden Hale: Nestled among tropical flowers, palms and fluffy Japanese grasses

Enjoy resort living on hillside slopes at a perfect elevation. Aromatic tropical breezes, spring-like temperatures, and birds singing in this sub-climate are to be sure to tickle your senses. Not too hot, not too cold, Homes Over Kona are located centrally in the historic, quaint, artsy coffee town above Kona called Holualoa. Only 10 min. away, Kona’s shoreline beaches, downtown, and neighboring Captain Cook Town are all very conveniently located.

Homes Over Kona is a complex of four private homes of different sizes and this particular listing is for the Garden Hale (2B). Description of this unit is listed in detail below. To rent the whole property exclusively please visit vrbo #482045 or homeaway #482045vb.

This complex is newly built (2013) and furnished modern-tropical, with an Asian-Hawaiian flair. The 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa is communal. Exclusive use of the Private Infinity Edge Pool with Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River is reserved for the main Grandview Hale.

The pools are all solar heated and designed to feel as if you are sitting in natural Hawaiian waters. Both the private Main pool and Waterfall Lagoon pool boast deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and giant lava beds to lay and relax on. The Waterfall Lagoon has a 15 foot waterfall drop that trickles and streams down creating an ambiance that only the sounds of water can offer.

The gardens are abundant with walking paths full of fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Yes, you can even pick and make your own lei. Majestic Monkey Pod trees canopy over the property and provide perfect shade for reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock. Fruit trees are everywhere and you are welcome to pick what you can eat. Don’t be surprised to find a bunch of bananas, basket of passion fruit or a fresh pineapple waiting on your lanai when you visit us. Other fruits on the property include plum, serinam cherries, guava, lychee, mangosteen, rambutan, mango, papaya, star fruit, pomegranate, avocados, coffee, many kinds of citris, and our secret miracle berry. Guests will also receive a bag of our local Kona coffee that is grown, picked and roasted right here in Holualoa.

Homes Over Kona is a unique property designed to keep you in tune with the aloha spirit of Hawaii. We want to share our air, our fauna, our wildlife. We want to welcome you to our homes.

GARDEN HALE: Unit Description

As mentioned in earlier descriptions, Homes Over Kona offers several private homes to choose from. This particular unit shares the use of the 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa. (The Private Infinity Edge Pool, Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River are reserved for the main Grandview Hale). All pools are solar heated boasting deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and designed with giant lava beds to lay and relax on. Waterfalls trickle down the sides and above your heads offering the true ambience of vacationing in Hawaii.

Gardens are full of Hawaiian fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful local plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Available are lei making tools, suggestions and instruction guides to show you how. Yes, you can pick and make your own sweet smelling leis to wear to dinner. Fruit trees are everywhere and when ripe, you are welcome to pick what you can eat. Coffee plants abound offer you the true feel of a coffee farm. Reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock is made perfect under the Majestic Monkey Pod trees which canopy the property and provide perfect shade. The 1000 foot elevation sub climate introduces comfortable breezes and temperatures specifically experienced in this Holualoa area and nothing like the sticky hot found along the shoreline or the cold found at the much higher elevations. 1000 feet is the perfect elevation. You found the best.

Homes Over Kona was designed by the owners who fell in love with the land and built the homes to represent Hawaii with minimal disturbance to the 2 acres it sits on. The owners careers are in the art, design and event businesses and these attributes are made evident in the homes offered.

The colors, themes, and landscaping to the homes compliment the nature which abounds us. Black and red for lava. Green and browns for nature and deep blues represent our oceans. Genuine stone and woods are used to finish and furnish these homes.

The entertainment areas are just that. The owners specifically designed each area to entertain your senses. TV's are large and lay flat against the walls. Spaces are open to enhance family communication and scenic viewing pleasure.

The owners also have a love for cooking and this is evident in the design of the kitchens. All kitchens are fitted with genuine granite countertops, real wood cabinets, and a true focus on making cooking a convenient experience.

Adventure is what brought these owners to the Big Island and perfection is what made them settle in the town above Kona, Holualoa. The Big Island has the best of everything. Almost every climate is attainable here ranging from snow capped mountain tops to tropical rain forests and hot sandy beaches. The owners love diving, and it doesn't get better than this anywhere else in the islands of Hawaii. Hiking too, is a favorite, and these owners have explored many. They have left a suggestion book with details so that you can find children friendly beaches and trails as well as some of the more challenging ones.

This is your one-stop-shop! Great view with cool breeze on the patio, brand new/modern built home with great appliances, peaceful, quiet, and yes your OWN fruit garden! Right in front of this home is a large avocado tree and LOTS of avocados. This home has everything that we needed; towels, beach gears, gas BBQ. We love how the stove is built just outside the sliding doors (enclosed inside mesh windows), we really enjoy breakfast and the breeze. We had a lot of fun walking around the fruit garden and picked A LOT of fruits! Just minutes to many beaches. Make sure you take a road trip up to the summit of Mauna Kea @ 13, 500 ft (yes, you can drive all the way up there)...to watch the sunset and star gazing! On the bookcase is an excellent book called (something) Revealed. Tells all secret and incredible places to visit!
Thank you, Emily for sharing your property! We will definitely be back and will tell our families and friends about the home!

This house is very clean, has great outdoor area, guava and avocados grows right outside, there is plenty of room, has everything you need to cook and sleeps 2 couples in the 2 rooms easy. It says it sleeps up to 6. I can see one person on the coach for 5 but no sure how it could sleep 6 adults maybe children though. Emily who I spoke to with homes over Kona was very nice. There was snacks and kona Coffee made just up the road provided for us which was awesome. There was also beach and snorkel gear provided which was sweet. Only issue is we could not get a late checkout on our last day but that's understandable. The crying baby next door was tough to sleep through but otherwise it was a nice stay. I could not be more happy with this house for me and my groomsman before I got married.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you chose Hawaii as your location for wedding ceremony. The Big Island has so much excitement to offer! Sorry about the unavailability for late check out. If able, we always accommodate our guests and try and schedule cleaners to start later,...but unfortunately we had a Full Complex group coming in and we had a crew of anxious cleaners. Thanks for leaving your place so tidy. The unit does sleep 4 in beds,...and the additional 2 persons would be utilizing the futons provided. These with extra bedding are stored away in the closets. Although, usually reserved for the children,...but of course anyone is allowed to use them (if they don't mind a futon). We want to be able to accommodate the groups that are larger than 4 persons without having to upgrade to the 3 bedroom unit. This saves the guests lots of $ and most of the time it is to sleep a child (Like my family of 5,....a lot more challenging than traveling with 4!) :-) I am glad you had a great time and hope you choose Hawaii for your 1st Wedding Anniversary.

Spent 5 peaceful nights at the Garden Hale. We loved being away from the tourist area of Kona, yet close enough to pop down for groceries or dinner. The cottage has everything one might need for a very pleasant vacation. We spent hours on the porch and by the beautiful pool relishing the wonderful aroma of coffee roasting at nearby farms. It was also a good launching spot for day trips to national parks, beaches and Kona area attractions. We walked to a neighboring coffee farm and took the tour; also went to several very nice galleries at Holuahoa village. Best part of the week was probably the wonderful avocado trees that were laden with fruit. Wonderful week.

I love,love this home, I wish i could have folded it up and put in my suitcase and brought it home with me. Very modern but not overwhelming. The owner had everything in the home to make my vacation a memorable stay. The surrounding trees provide the privacy needed for peaceful return from hectic day of exploring the island. I love this place would definitely rent again on next visit to The big island and highly recommend this to anyone considering, don't hesitate.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. Our Garden Hale is just as you wrote. It is tucked away under the trees and surrounded by grassy areas and flowers. We are so pleased you found our home as a retreat. We look forward to your return!

Aloha from the Kilohana Outrigger Canoe Club based in Redwood City & Fremont CA. We were participating in the largest Canoe Race on the Big Island, the 42nd Queen Liliu'Okalani Canoe Race. Our club rented all four houses on your property.

We enjoyed out little hale with it's beautiful view and all necessary amenities. We ate good ono, went to Hapuna beach and Waimea on our off days. Many Mahalos!

Aloha from Chapel Hill, NC (USA). We loved our Big Island adventures, and enjoyed staying @ Homes Over Kona. Our family also uses and endorses the Revealed Books. We have the Maui, Kawai, and BI copies.
Our favorite beaches on this trip were Hapuna, Mauna Kea, 69 Beach, and Kahalu'u. We loved the FairWinds2 snorkel cruise too! We enjoyed lots of good food, Sushi & desserts! Too hard to pick a fav.

Thanks to Emily and family for such a gorgeous property here in Holualoa! Can't wait to come back and see how Homes Over Kona has progressed. Our aloha!
