About Randy Warren

I am a builder of 30 years now retired. I built my first home on the Island above the airport. It wasn't long before I realized that I had made a big mistake. The pool was to cold to use ,the neighborhood was noisy and access to shopping , beaches etc was not at all what I wanted. I sold and found my present location. We are located just 4 miles south of downtown Kailua pier. Its perfect and I would not change the location for any other place on the Island . We have it all just minutes from the home.

Why Randy Warren chose Kona Coast

King Kamehameha made is home just 1 mile from where our house is located. My thought was what better place to build my home . The king had his choice of all the islands .

What makes this house unique

Open air shuttle to shopping , farmers markets full of organic island fruits and vegetables , fine dinning and easy beach access. The home is at the end of a culdesac offering a very quite private experience . Sunset views of the ocean from the Lani and private sun bathing by the pool in the buff if you so desire.

Fabulous home base for our team!

  • 5 of 5

Our Ragnar relay team stayed at Maluhia Hale for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The house was perfect for a large group, some who had never met! The spaces was open and inviting, kitchen,dining and living room had plenty of space for everyone to be together, yet the bedrooms offered privacy, as did the Ohana suite below. The house was kept well, clean and had all the utensils/kitchen equipment we needed. The private pool is beautiful, and as i mentioned, we all wished we could have spent more time enjoying. The location of the house was great....close to everything in the Kona area.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 2 weeks in this wonderful vacation home. It was the perfect size for our group of 4 adults and 5 teenagers and the house is well maintained and the kitchen had all we needed. After a day at a nearby beach or exploring the island, we swam in the pool and watched the sunsets over the ocean from the deck as we BBQ'd. This house is very conveniently located and really added to the enjoyment of our vacation.Thank you Randy for renting us your house, for your prompt responses and for all your tips on things to see and do!

Owner's Response: Iam so glad you enjoyed our home as much as we do and your right location , location , location is everything . With large groups it's key to making sure everyone gets to do what they want every day. Some may choose the beach ,others shopping in Kona , while others in your party may elect to go see the volcano and hot lava . At our location all is possible with one rental car. At the end of the day dinner on the deck and a view of the sunsetting on the ocean makes a perfect vacation for all.

Amazing piece of paradise....

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, Maluhia Hale, couldn't have been any better. We were there for 10 days with 6 adults and three children. We had plenty of space and enjoyed the privacy. The pool was amazing and a big hit with everyone. We were able to be at the beaches in 5 minutes and back on the deck to enjoy a barbecue. This was the perfect spot for us, would highly recommend and definitely use this vrbo again. The owner was great to work with. Mahalo.

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 10 day stay at Maluhia Hale. We loved this home. It was clean and comfortable and just lovely. The quiet and privacy was perfect. The views were great to enjoy each day. I wish the neighbor across the street would cut his avocado tree as it totally blocks the actual ball of sun, this time of year, of the sunset. The sky is magnificent at any view but his tree doesn’t allow the full sunset “flash”. However, the egret living in the avocado tree is fun to watch leave and come home each day. You wake up each morning to a symphony of bird song. The pool and waterfall are beautiful and we enjoyed it very much. We even loved it in the rain. The tile is gorgeous and the workmanship is beautiful. The home was perfect for the needs of 3 adults. We had our own space and yet were able to enjoy being together for meals and pool time and movies. We had a rental car that allowed us to explore the island but it certainly isn't a must if you just want to enjoy the nearby beach and Ali'i Drive and downtown area. The younger adults totally enjoyed the proximity of both nearby beaches. This was our first foray into VRBO and it has sold us completely. We won't be going back to hotels or resorts if we can avoid it. This experience was the best!

Lake Tahoe, ca


  • 5 of 5

Staying here was such an amazing experience with the tranquil pool and the beach only a block away you don't need much else. If you're in the mood to go out it's a short 10 minute ride on the trolley to downtown. However the house is so nice we never wanted to leave. We watched every sunset go over the oceans horizon from the lanai while barbecuing. We have been to Maui and multiple other resorts and have never had the experience like we did staying here.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Hawaii with his daughter and friend and my son and his family including his wife and children (10 months and almost 4). This house was great for this combination of ages and interests. My son and his family loved the pool. It kept my very active grandson (wearing a float) busy most mornings and afternoons. By the end of his week+ stay, he was jumping in and swimming with no float as long as there was an adult in the pool with him. His younger brother enjoyed toe dipping in the warm afternoon shadows. My grandson also played in the backyard regularly with one of the available adults. He loved the floats available for pool and beach. We all took advantage of the pool/beach equipment as we spent almost every day at one of the several beaches available around Kona. My husband's daughter and her friend (45+'s) spent about half their time on the beaches with us and the rest of the time traveling around the island. They had no trouble taking day trips to various recommended locations since Kona is centrally located on the western coast of the island. My husband and daughter love photography and documented our adventure. The sunsets from our deck or the nearby beach were favorite subjects of photos. I loved getting up before everyone else (barely for the babies) to experience the birds welcoming the breaking day while sitting on the deck watching for whales. What fun to look up from whatever on the deck or living room to see a whale The house was lovely and very functional. We cooked almost all of our meals at home. The washing and drying machines were essential. Randy was great! We had a wonderful time and are grateful for this "perfect" place for our family vacation!

Owner's Response: We are really appreciative of the designer/architect that gave us such a great home. When we first built we were the only home in the subdivision. Wes Wright no relation to Frank Loyd Wright managed to insure our views by studying the building envelopes of any future structures. Wes had lived on Island for 30 yrs when we meet. He was a wealth of knowledge and understood the importance of the ocean and mountain breezes. I being a builder of 40 yrs would have missed that had I designed the home myself. He made sure when placing our lanai (decks) windows , views and breezes that any future structures would not impact us. As you experienced he did an amazing job. Now that the subdivision is built out we still have all the privacy one could want and almost never miss a sunset with an evening cocktail. Hope to have you back.
