Kohala Coast Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Call us direct for better rates than listed here! (808) 936-0395.

This unique property is situated above beautiful Wailea Bay on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, one of the few white sand beaches on the island of Hawaii. This designer home is perfect for family and friends. It features newly hand-painted and hand-designed tiles that bring the tropics of the outdoors to the inside. The ocean view kitchen boasts hand-painted tiles and sea life. For your dining pleasure, there is an outdoor patio/lanai under the trees, just off the kitchen. This is a four bedroom home with four garden showers. One of the bedrooms is located in a private gazebo upstairs, and is open air screened gazebo above a private, artful courtyard. Very separate from rest of house.

Designed for outdoor living and relaxation. Each bedroom has it`s own sense of privacy and separate bath. Two hammocks swing between the palm trees to enjoy the views of the bay and water activities from complete serene privacy. The home itself is a piece of art work. Custom designed hand painted tiles create Hawaiian scenes from sandy beaches to tropical flowers. The tropical gardens offer beautiful settings for reading, relaxing and sun bathing. Fairly easy access into sandy bottom for swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, surfing and other ocean activities. We can recommend local vendors to rent your ocean toys!

The Bay is peaceful and is a great place to swim, snorkel and paddle board. We can offer you contacts to rent equipment and have it delivered to your home.

From one of our recent guests...

"Thanks so much, Pattie. We had the best time ever!! I definitely hope to come back again soon. Thank you so much for accommodating us on such short notice, too. It was a great house, and I cannot tell you how easy it was to find everything with the labeled drawers. We had one of the light bulbs burn out on the lanai, and I looked in the kitchen, found the drawer marked “light bulbs” and we were back in business. That was awesome!

I will definitely be in touch,"

About Pattie Freeman

Pattie Freeman, Real Estate Broker has been managing and renting this home since the Owner's purchased it. We have all since become close friends and enjoy the home when the family is at this villa. The families children have been coming there on a regular basis since they were 3 and 5 years old. They have a family tradition of spending days in the bay swimming and playing in the sand on the beautiful beach. Their family time is spent relaxing and at the home and cooking their own meals with the open air kitchen facing the bay. They find it a time to reconnect and get back to nature!

Pattie Freeman purchased this villa in 1995

Why Pattie Freeman chose Kohala Coast

The owner of this home chose it because of the superb location on Waialea Bay also known as Beach 69 in the small community of Puako between the Mauna Lani and Mauna Kea Resorts. The location is extremely private and has the feeling of remoteness with resorts near by. It is easy to get swim in this beautiful protected bay.

What makes this villa unique

This home was designed for outdoor living with two outdoor dining patios facing the bay. Private garden showers add to the tropical experience of this home under the multitude of coconut palm trees and stars at night. Enjoy the glow of the moon and stars on the bay from your private setting and during the day watch snorkelers go by or join them to see the abundant sea life including Hawaiian Sea Turtles. The original tiled art work throughout the home is 3 dimensional and each bathroom and kitchen has it's own tropical theme. Very nice linens and good quality beds make for great sleep with the sound of the palm trees and lapping of the waves against the sandy beach! Two oceanside hammocks are part of the relaxing experience.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I rented this beautiful Ohana for a Week. We wanted a place that our family could gather for a week to celebrate our 40th Anniversary, my 63rd Birthday and have a shower for a future daughter in la who lives and works here. Aina Malia was the perfect spot. My twin boys had both recently gotten engaged and our daughter married last summer so this was an opportunity for all 8 of us to get to know each other better and forge some new family memories. Having separate entrances and bathrooms for each couple worked great and everyone loved the outside showers and most comfortable beds. The home was so well organized and everything was well labeled so searching was kept to a minimum and they had EVERYTHING we might have needed. Having the pass through from the outdoor dining table to the kitchen allowed for whoever was cooking that night to still feel a part of the action. Each couple had a night to prepare a meal for everyone and on our anniversary we had a friend come up from Kona to make dinner for us all. Having the double fridges allowed us to bring much of the food up with us. And big BONUS was the Bar fridge for sparkling water and beer! The Eagle Ray sitings in the calm morning clear water were the perfect compliment to our coffee and later snorkeling or paddle boarding. The yard made for some exciting Bocce Ball games in the early evening as well. Having the beautiful new washer and dryer made keeping towels dry so easy. While we did not have much down time (by choice we are an active group!), the movie selection was extremely tempting! The beautiful glass and wood bowls as well as the original art truly made us feel that a special place was being shared with us. Someone was always finding new details in the tile and ceramic work, or with the asian wood components incorporated into the home. Sleep always came easy by 10 PM with the fans cooling us when the natural breezes stopped.The sounds of the birds got us moving again by 6AM! Healthy schedule! Having the hiking trail that follows the coast was a bonus for the runners in the group and my morning swim to the rock island and back was perfect.

We hosted a shower with a small group of my future daughter in laws friends from here on the island. They loved being able to walk down the rock path and step into the sandy bottom of the bay. So memories of Aina Malia will have to hold me for a few years! Mahalo for making it so easy to be in someone else's home and feel so at home!

Cute Property But Too Many Problems

  • 2 of 5

This is a very cute 4 bdrm house of approx 2,000 sf. The water views are somewhat sporadic since the house is set back from the cliff with the view obscured by a lot of trees & a high thorny bush with branches that were 5-6 ft high. The master has no view at all. Also important to know that the gazebo has no bathroom. There is a public path that runs along the cliff edge within a few feet of the dining area, which was quite busy when we were there and which was somewhat intrusive. Access to the ocean can be treacherous except on the calmest of days because it is a very large bay with lots of waves most of the time.

Unfortunately, the property wasn't in very good condition when we rented it. The housecleaning was spotty, which should have been immaculate considering the cleaning charge for such a small house. There was also a lot of deferred maintenance - lights not working indoors & out, loose sink faucets & toilet sets, broken blinds, broken dishwasher door that injured our foot, loose knobs, greasy appliances, entertainment center problems with image & sound. We also had mice scurrying around the master bedroom late at night, which one of us stepped on, and another that got into the food pantry, eating through a bag of chips - which was a first for us in decades of Hawaii rentals. We think most people would agree that renters shouldn't have to deal with problems like this for a property with such a highly nightly rate.

However, we were willing to move past it all after the owner's friend showed up next to our last day there, assuring us that the owner Dale would contact us and provide compensation for the problems. But we never heard from Dale at all nor received any compensation. Only because we contacted the friend about a month or so later to find out what had happened did we receive a vague reference to an unspecified discount on a future rental with a retraction of all previous representations. It was clear to us that Dale didn't share his friend's good intentions, which is the reason we can't recommend this rental. You can't always prevent things from going wrong but you can always make things right - if you care enough about the experiences of your customers and want them to return.

Owner's Response: From time to time we receive comments from guests whose motivation seems more to punish us than enlighten other possible renters about one of our vacation homes. In this case, we are disappointed that this guest was not happy with his stay, but he is very much the exception that proves the rule: Aina Malia is one of our most beautiful homes on the most beautiful bay on the Big Island. Anyone who knows Wailea Bay knows that it is one of the most serene bays on the Big Island with easy swimming and excellent snorkeling among its best features. The comment "There is a public path that runs along the cliff edge within a few feet of the dining area... was quite busy when we were there…" is pure fiction because there is no such path and anyone who has ever stayed at Aina Malia will tell you that it is is one of the most private homes one could stay at with virtually no outsiders ever seeing into the yard. Aina Malia is a very popular home and many, if not most, of the bookings are with people who vacation there every year, some for a month at a time. We would be pleased to refer any prospective guests to speak with prior guests who can attest to the beauty of this home and location. The Owner Aloha from the Big Island! I personally had many dealings with this very nice guest prior to arrival and during his visit. This home sits right above the bay, with views across one of the most coveted beaches on Big Island. The view is exactly as shown on the listing photos. There is low landscaping across the front between yard and ocean which is purposely planted to keep privacy. It has never been 5-6 feet tall by the nature of the plant. There are two dining areas outside and one is very close to the ocean, which most folks find quite enjoyable. In the winter season there are random, short periods of time when there could be large waves, preventing guests and beach visitors from entering near the steps to the normally shallow water. This location is quite rare and unique, as it is the only location a person can walk down some cement stairs and stand up on a sandy bottom. We have staff on call that can address issues like entertainment center or sound issues.There is also a guest book in the home with helpful information. This home is designed for indoor/outdoor living so be prepared to have a little more of the island, tropical feel with dust and sea spray which can occur since so close the water. I deeply apologize to this guest. Aloha, Pattie~Hawaii Vacation Rentals

Exotic, Functional, Private...Perfect

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 7 (three youngsters, 4 adults), we couldn't have asked for a more perfect piece of paradise. The accommodations are thoughtfully appointed for leisure and fun, steps from easy entrance into Waialea Bay...snorkeling, surfing, boogie boarding and sunning heaven. The outdoor spaces are beautifully shaded by mature trees, perfect for al fresco dining and watching the cardinals, Brazilian cardinals, and saffron finches. Each of the three suites has its own artful outdoor shower. The tower bedroom is perfect for naps and teenage get-aways. The living spaces were immaculately clean and fresh, the linens crisp and luxurious. The AC, though rarely needed during our stay, quickly cools those spaces that might heat up when the house is closed while you're away on an adventure. The "steps away" State Beach is one of the best and most picturesque in all of Hawaii. Stunning tropical fish and turtles abound in the bay. The owner has taken great care to create a uniquely private and special destination with manicured but approachable grounds...perfect for kids, and the interiors are populated with artful tropical tile work and beautiful Hawaiian themed decoration. The property manager is responsive and has seemed to anticipate all discerning travelers needs. Good grocery shopping and wonderful restaurants are within a 10 minute drive from the gated property. Whether you intend to arrive and plant yourself in this very private estate, or use it as a base to explore this gloriously diverse island, this is definitely a rental worth considering.

Wonderful Property - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Easter weekend here, and it was perfect! The home is oceanfront, but offers privacy from beach-goers at Beach 69. A short path from the home leads you into the shallow ocean with a white sandy bottom. We brought our kayak, and were able to get it in and out of the water with ease. Our family also snorkeled and fished - all right in front of the home. We swam with dolphins, manta rays and turtles. And all without worrying about stepping on rocks and wana. It was amazing!

The layout of the home also offered privacy from other guests. The main part of the home includes the master bedroom, but the other three guestrooms all have their own exterior entrances. This was great, as we were traveling with other adult couples. The dining tables outside were great for our morning coffee and evening BBQ's.

The grounds of the home are so relaxing - with green lawns and coconut trees. The hammocks were comfortable and we all took turns taking naps in them.

Another one of my favorite things was that every cabinet and drawer were labeled. This saved me from searching through the kitchen and bathroom trying to find things. I wish every property manager did this - it was much appreciated! Also, the fridge and spice cabinet were stocked with condiments and spices. This was a blessing, because it's hard to remember every little thing.

This home was great for our family, and I can't wait to go back. I only hope I get to stay longer next time!

Amazing Tranquility and Peace

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with our family offered us so many options to enjoy the ocean, snorkel, relax in the hammocks, find a quiet space or gather for lunch and dinner around the big outdoor table! We cooked and BBQ'd together and had tons of fun! One of the best family vacations we have ever experienced and this was a very special time for us to be together to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary! Our two grandchildren had plenty of places to play in the grassy, shaded yard which faces the ocean. The sound of the soft waves relaxed us into a very sweet sleep every night. We will be back! Pattie arranged for a private chef for the celebration of our anniversary and next time we might have the chef every night!

We also treated ourselves to massages by professionals who came to our home and even a private yoga class! Aina Malia is one of the best kept secrets on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island!
