About the property

Vacation Ready Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

All you'll need is a bathing suit and a Toothbrush as I've thought of everything. Beach Towels, Beach Chairs, Coolers with Ice Packs, Umbrellas, Boogie Boards, Snorkel Gear, Sand Toys, Fishing poles and Tackle, Tennis Racquets and fresh tennis balls, Football, Basketball, Frisbee, 2 Binoculars, Wireless Speakers, Books, Movies, Hand Held Steamer for that wrinkled Sun Dress, Laundry Soap, Weber Grill, First Aid Kits, Baby Accessories including high Chair and pack-n-play. Our Home is Vacation Ready!

You'll talk to the Whales from our Private Lanai tucked away in the corner of Hali'i Kai right on the waters edge. Only a hand full of homes here offer true Waterfront seats so be careful or you could wind up sipping breakfast coffee while staring at a wall, the main access road or even dodging golf balls. Nothing here but crashing waves, Chirping birds and Breaching whales. Take a moment and read the many reviews.

Your vacation neighbors are Charles Schwab, Tom Lehman, Paul Allen (Microsoft) - His Yacht is usually cruising the Kona coast. Also Pricilla Presley, Jeff Kissinger (Me), Bob Parsons (Go Daddy), and Neil Young come here to escape the mainland in their vacation island homes here on the Big Island. Those private Jets on the end of the Tarmac belong to the many Celebs in hiding. Just Don't tell TMZ who your neighbors are !

The kitchen is complete for Thanksgiving dinner and if you must do the Laundry (illegal in some families while vacationing) the Tide is plentiful !! The King Bed, Lanai Table, Towels, Sheets and bed spreads are all Luxurious and new in 2016! We've just added large Beautiful Samsung Washer and Dryers in April 2016

This Oasis know as Hali'i Kai is located on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii's Big Island just 18 miles from the Keahole Kona International Airport. Birthplace of the great King Kamehameha I, tales of the favored status of this stretch of the island are legend. Blessed with a scant ten inches of rainfall annually, most days here are sun drenched and cooled by the breezes of Anaehoomalu Bay.

Experience the private amenities that Hali'i Kai has to offer. Whether it is relaxing on an aqua lounger in the pool, a golf game with friends on a Robert Trent Jones-designed course, or a romantic evening at an award-winning Ocean Grill restaurant, the amenities at Hali'i Kai will fulfill your needs and desires.

Our villa welcomes you with the serenity of a luxury retreat. An open kitchen features black-on-stainless steel appliances. The great room relaxes you with gentle earth tones. The generous private lanai is yours for alfresco dining, 365 sunsets a year !

Total square footage is 1204 square feet.

About Jeff Kissinger

I am King Jeff Kalamabellytoobig and this is my rags to riches to rags story....

Jeff Kissinger purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Jeff Kissinger chose Kohala Coast

I drank the Kool-aid and bought at the peak now I'm hoping you will rent it and help me pay the mortgage ! The good news is I have a partner. The bad news for him is he has a wife that doesnt remember approving of this transaction.

What makes this townhome unique

I don't feel so stupid when I'm there. It is paradise and I hope to retire here. When I'm 93 this place will be paid for. I check our (scratch that) your home often to make sure the home is up to my stringent specifications. On my recent visit I replaced the Grill, bought new beach chairs & beach towels, books, Movies, Boogie boards, and rugs. I purchased Binoculars, a High Chair, and a Pack in Play for your families many needs.

As is usually the case I did not want to leave when I'm here! If you can find the Patron or promise to write a nice review it's yours !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jeff,

Pictures cannot prepare one for the reaction we got when we opened the

front door. Your place has got to be the nicest place on the whole island

-- just amazing! We already have memories of a lifetime just sitting on the

lanai staring at the ocean, spending time with each other and drinking

coffee (and beer). I meant to drop you a quick note earlier, but we've

been so busy having the time of our lives.

Having been to Kauai so many times, I wasn't sure what to make of all the

lava on the way up! But we went to Hapuna, visited Kailua Kona and Hilo,

and are really loving this island.

Whenever we come back "home" to 15B, it never fails to amaze me to walk

through those doors and see that view. My expectations were high to begin

with, but it's no exaggeration to say we're blown away. Mahalo, Mahalo!

14B, Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a very memorable 7 days over spring break at Hali'i Kai, Unit 14B. The property and grounds are very beautiful and well maintained, and unit 14B is the best, but it was the people who we dealt with that made our experience exceptional! For example, we arrived in Kona at 10:30 am but the unit we were staying in was rented until 11 am check out and it still needed to be cleaned. Keep in mind the rental agreement clearly states check in is at 3 pm. The owner, Jeff, personally worked with management to get us access to the pool area and dining so we could relax with a mai tai and some pupus before check in. Kathy and Mary Gayle at the pool bar were the nicest people and were genuinely interested in our wellbeing. Meanwhile the housecleaner was texting me with updates when the room would be ready! I have never felt so spoiled and welcome before. We absolutely loved the place and the people and can't wait to come back!

Beautiful Location and Condo Was Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at 15B in late March and found it to be perfect for what we wanted to do. The condo had everything we needed (just need to buy your food) and the oceanfront view from the lanai is amazing (we watched the whales every morning at breakfast and the sunset in the evening). The condo/lanai are so quiet we hardly knew we had neighbors.

We spent time at several different beaches so the toys, towels, chairs and, most importantly, the beach umbrella provided by Jeff came in very handy. We also got some use out of the tennis rackets and basketball. The kids loved the swimming pool, which is <2 minutes by foot from 15B.

It was a ~12 minute walk to the Hilton so we spent time at the lagoon beach and the kids got to swim with the dolphins at Dolphin Quest.

When we've rented other places, we tried to think of anything that would help the owners make things better for the next renters but we really have nothing to add on this one. Jeff has thought of everything and made the whole process painless. He even checked in with us a couple times to make sure everything was OK. We highly recommend this owner and condo. Mahalo Jeff! From Doug H and family.

Very nice property next to the pool and overlooking the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The condo is extremely well stocked. We really did not need to get a lot of condiments and basics. We like to go to multiple beaches. The unit had snorkeling, boogie boards, beach chairs, an umbrella and everything we needed to do that. Also tennis racquets, a basketball, and multiple other such sports oriented pieces of equipment. We had a couple of minor issue. The owner, Jeff got on them immediately and got them solved. We loved watching the whales off the deck. Ovreally a very nice unit.

A week in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week in paradise! Our home away from home was just that. Clean, quiet and the condo had everything we wanted and needed to relax and enjoy the incredible weather. Jeff had anything we needed to help with activities on the property. The poolside was fun and relaxing at the same time. Excellent wait staff and the perfect drinks. It's a short walk to the pool. The oceanview at Hali'i Kai 15B was very cool. Watching the dolphins and whales jumping was something to see. I would highly recommend this condo and will be forwarding the info to friends and family.

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Hali'i Kai is a great place to stay on the Big Island and Jeff's condo makes your stay even better. The condo is equipped with everything you could need for a vacation whether you want to hang out and relax or be "on the go". The views are amazing and tranquil. The condo itself is cozy and comfortable - great sheets and towels, including beach towels. I can't think of one thing that's missing from this unit. Jeff is a gracious and responsive host.
