Ocean View 5,000 sq ft plantation estate. You know you have arrived... as you navigate the long private drive and park beneath the high, open Porte Cochere. Enter through the magnificent crystal cut glass front doors. You are greeted by an expansive view of the blue Pacific Ocean, framed by an open 40 foot sliding glass wall of the great room with it's own indoor atrium reaching 25 feet to the sky light.
Stepping out onto the huge tiled Lanai, the only sounds you hear are tropical bird songs and rustling palms.
To your right is the gourmet kitchen where your meals can be prepared for you*, or you can be your own chef. Formal dining room, or lunch on the Lanai, or just party around the pool and practice snorkeling for your ocean dive. (*Gourmet Chef optional *scuba lessons available).
Every night watch the golden sunset, and later in the evening curl up in the library room with a south seas novel, or enjoy your favorite Video or DVD on the library room television.
Like to listen to your own music? Just put a CD into the 'Great Room' stereo.
Stargazing is a nightly event against a black sky among a beautiful backdrop created by nature.
Everything you would expect from a luxury plantation home is provided.
The plantation grounds were designed in a way to allow each living area privacy yet access to the garden and pool areas. In all cases we can customize all accommodations for every guest and cater your needs.

Joe and Dana Kern own the property and live nearby. We are here to make sure your vacation goes smoothly and to make sure you have nothing to worry about.
Dana purchased this estate in 2012
This Home was absolutely ravishing, private, very accommodating for comfort and the beds were amazingly comfortable! Very Spacious!!
The property is very well maintained and the pool nice and clean as well. All the sheets were clean and fresh too.
The Owners, Joe & Dana provided us with an abundance of Island knowhow & ideas for fun & food.
The kitchen was great to cook in and lots of space too.
The hiking around the beautiful neighborhoods was a treat too.
I would highly recommend this to everyone who has a large group or family or friends.
We were serenaded every night with all the wonderful birds, such a peaceful sound to sleep by.
We stayed for 6 nights and did everything we could.
The Luau at the Royal Kona Hotel was the Absolute best of Food and Entertainment. The Volcano hiking was great and the Volcano Restaurant was Excellent.
The Snorkeling was the absolute superb at all the beaches. All the restaurants were amazing.
You have to stay at this place to experience the best ever!
We stayed in the Villa with 2 different Groups of each 13 - 14 Adults, for each 10 nights in April and May 2014.
The loving Villa was for us perfect in any ways, we all loved!
Mahalo to the owner, they are very helpful!
We`ll come back in September 2015, jupiii.................
We stayed here for 7 days and it was awesome. The house is gorgeous, has an excellent kitchen and was perfect for our group of 12 adults. The rooms were great and we loved the pool. Joe was exceptionally nice and very friendly. We had everything we needed, and more. Towels, beach chairs and mats, pool toys, everything! We would absolutely go back!
This house is over the top, out of a magazine gorgeous, & you get to live there! It was just perfect for our 3 generation group of 10. Plenty of room to sleep couples & kids in the big house, quiet retreats for grandparents in the pool cabana & garden apartment, each with private TV & kitchenette. A large entertainment center in the big house is stocked with dvds & games, wifi (that was at times spotty.) Great sound system. Lots of space for group interaction & comfortable places for quiet moments to recharge & plan the next outing or drive around the island. Every kitchen gadget you'll need to cook meals, party & feel at home. Some basic ingredients in the cupboard, so check before you go shopping. The house was spotless when we got there & we found it easy to clean & maintain during our stay. 2 washers & dryers, so everyone can pack lightly & wash clothes as needed. Lovely view of the ocean, welcome cooling breezes on this hillside location above the muggier downtown beach area. The pool is fantastic fun for the kids & a refreshing dip after returning from an outing. Plenty of pool toys plus boogie boards, beach towels, toy buckets & ice chests for the beach. Kaloko-Honokohau Natl. Historical Park & Kahalu'u Snorkel Beach were our local favorites, get there early for limited parking. Favorite food finds: Kona Brewing Co. (get reservations), Kanaka Kava in Coconut Grove Marketplace off Ali''i Dr. (pulled pork!) & Bite Me at the Honokohau Harbor. If the nighttime birds bother your sleep, close some of the windows & let the fans muffle the sound. Don't be surprised if you hear an evening choir rehearsal from a nearby church. We used the sliding screen doors along the open wall of the great room for added toddler pool safety as well as keeping insects out. There is a storage closet with collapsible cribs, highchair & much more. Ask the owners, if you think you'll need something. They are wonderful & live right next door. We had such a marvelous time & will cherish this adventure always.
Our family of 12 (6 couples) stayed at this house for a week long vacation on the Big Island. This house worked out perfectly for our group. Each couple had their own room and bathroom and we really enjoyed the open living area and beautiful lanai/pool area. The way the screens fully open onto the lanai is wonderful. We were able to see some great sunsets and breakfast by the pool with views of the Ocean was very peaceful. Everyone really enjoyed taking a dip in the pool when we were at the house. The house has two washer and dryer sets which really comes in handy too. The owners of this property are very nice and helpful. The house is close to town but at a higher elevation so not as hot as the coast. You will need a car to get around but it was very easy and centrall to everything we wanted to do. While we were there we did a dolphin swim with Sunlight on Water that we really enjoyed, the Royal Kona resort Luau and a tour with Hawaii Forest and Trail to Volcano National Part and the Summit of Mauna Kea for sunset and stargazing. We recommend all of them!
We recently had our wedding at Hale Kiwi and the house lived up to more than my expectations. The house itself was very clean. The caretaker was friendly and helpful. The setting for the wedding was spectacular!! It was a small wedding and the size of the yard and the covered veranda was perfect for our table of 27. One thing I note from above, the blinds in the master still need to be repaired.. f or a young couple staying in the suite, it was awkward to have your family walking around past our bedroom with the windows open.That being said, the location is great! A short car ride from the town, beautiful view. the house is fully equipped and we needed absolutely nothing. there were even lights and tiki torches and vases for our use. The pool is gorgeous and the pool and guest houses were perfect for the couples that stayed with us to give them some private time. I would absolutely stay here again! The moment I walked into the front door and saw the big open living room tand looked out towards the ocean, I was in love! ps. our caterer was katherine louie with outrageous gourmet!! I highly recommend her she is amazing!!!
