Hali'i Kai 13E Ocean Front Privacy-Compare us to any other property!

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 6 nights


About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

There’s golf and Hilton view, ocean view and then there’s oceanfront and a world of difference in between. In reality there is only a very small number of rent-able properties that can claim oceanfront on the entire Kohala Coast. The moment you walk into our professionally designed, Hawaiian adorned Villa, you will unexpectedly look past the inviting furnishings and gaze upon the ocean. Irresistibly, you walk to the lanai, open the door, hear the waves crashing, smell the sea spray, perhaps glimpse a breaching whale and know you have chosen wisely. The lanai and grassed area adjoining it, is the most private of the oceanfront properties in Hali’i Kai. It is also the most convenient to the Ocean Club. How can that be? You have to see it to believe it, but our website and Youtube video can help. See website below.

We offer three beautifully adorned bedrooms with the master looking directly to the ocean. Open the window and sleep to the magic of rhythmic waves washing the shoreline. A large kitchen, with professional grade appliances and relaxing living area offers plenty of comfort for large families or friends, although the lanai and grass lawn is where you’ll probably spend most of your time. However, if you want even more space, walk next door to the clubhouse & restaurant..

What view are you looking for? Golf course and neighboring buildings or Maui and the ocean. From our lanai you gaze upon the ocean from the living area and be immersed in it from the Lanai and you won't have anyone sitting across from your lanai looking at you or you at them. You will marvel at the feeling that you have it all to yourself because it is a rare private setting. During the winter the whales are up close and entertaining. If you're looking for the best oceanfront Villa at one of the most recognized resorts in Hawaii, you've found it.

Blessed with a scant ten inches of rainfall annually, most days in Waikoloa are sun drenched and cooled by the ocean breezes. The activities are endless, but you may just want to lay in the shade and do absolutely nothing.

Our vacation home offers a California king-size bed, queen-size bed and two twin beds. Our home is a wonderful place to make lifelong memories with family or friends. Our home is restricted from pets and smoking. Welcome to paradise!

About Bill Murphy

We own three real estate offices in North Dakota. Owned two real estate offices in Colorado before moving up to North Dakota.

Bill Murphy purchased this villa in 2007

Why Bill Murphy chose Waikoloa

Being in the real estate business we chose our special place due to it's exclusive privacy and ocean front views. In real estate it's Location, Location, Location. That's is also true in capturing the true Hawaiian experience. There are 1000 times more golf course views one could select. Ocean front, especially on The Big Island is very limited.

What makes this villa unique

Private setting, with breath taking views. We especially love watching the whales in the winter.

Our Hawaii Home

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family celebrated my Mom's retirement at Hali'i Kai 13E and it was perfect! Bill and his team were so easy to connect with, the renting process was seamless and if we had any questions they responded immediately. The beautifully kept unit had lots of space for everyone, the fridge and freezer were perfect for our huge costco run and the view from the lanai was incredible. So many memories were made playing on the grass watching the sun set into the ocean right in front of us. Being so close to the pool made it super easy with our little ones and after a day at the beach one of them said, "let's go back to our Hawaii home" and that's exactly what it was for the week we visited and we can't wait to go back to our Hawaii home again soon!

Beautiful Condo! One of the best places I have stayed!

  • 5 of 5

We originally were going to stay in Kapoho by Hilo, but the lava decided it wanted to stay there. So we relocated here. Best decision we could have made. The location is great for avoiding the volcanic vog (not dangerous, just hazy). We had mostly clear days. You would never know about the volcano on the other side iof the island. The pool was great. Walking distance to several beaches. Short drive to Weilea farmer’s market. Overall great location. The condo itself is amazing. High ceilings, Sub zero fridge and Wolf stove all add to how nice the apartment was decorated and equipped. Would love to go back tomorrow.

This is the one!!

  • 5 of 5

Expectations.. Exceeded!! Super clean, very well kept, comfortable, would definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again. The pool is right next door along with a bar and kitchen, the coconut smoothie was my favorite! The owners will make you feel very welcomed here and are very professional when it comes to customer service and satisfaction. If you are looking for a nice place to relax, re-energize, and enjoy your time in Kona, stay here!

The perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had an incredible stay at this property. We are experienced travelers who use VRBO and other rental services. This location, the quality of the unit and communication with the owner puts it at the top of our list. Water front, plenty of space, a poolside restaurant (which is quite good!!) and many activities nearby make this a must stay and return vacation spot for us. Would give it more stars if I could.
