About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


Hale Luana (House to relax and idle away the hours) is located 3 miles above Kailua Kona and overlooks Kailua Bay and Kailua town. Maka Nui Tui ('Tui' as we like to refer to it) is our 3+ acre property ideally located 1100 feet above sea level containing Hale Luana along with the owners main residence. Tui is private, quiet, convenient, and most relaxing. Surrounded by tropical plants, flowers, and fruit. The fruit is yours for the picking when available. You enter through iron gates and drive up the palm tree lined driveway passing the main house to find Hale Luana.

Hale Luana will be a perfect retreat from the daily sightseeing, beaching, shopping, and numerous other activities available on our wonderful island of Hawaii. Tropical breezes maintain a perfect temperature day and night. No need for air conditioning, but ceiling fans are in all rooms if you feel the need.

Now that you've completed your long trip to the islands, you can relax in your most comfortable, hawaiian decor Hale Luana. Sip on a glass of wine or tropical drink as you watch the sunset from your private lanai and also from the infinity pool. Marvel at the spectacular view of Kailua Bay and as the sun sets, delight in the stars above and twinkling lights of quaint Kailua town below.

Awake in the morning to the sounds of the local birds and rustling tropical leaves. Enjoy your first cup of Kona coffee on your lanai before embarking on the adventures before you. Whether it be sightseeing, swimming, snorkeling, shopping, golfing, or any of the many activities available, or just hanging at the pool. Hale Luana is so very convenient to everything to see or do on the big island. Most are within a 10 to 20 minute drive.

We've tried to prepare Hale Luana for you're pleasure and comfort. We are positive, your vacation here will be one of the most memorable you've experienced. Please contact us by email if you have any questions. We look forward to your visit.

Mahalo and Aloha,

Ray and Barb

About Barb Poston

Ray and I met in 1960 on Oahu, where he was a Marine stationed at Kaneohe MCAS and I was attending Kailua HS, as my father was also a Marine. We eventually married and moved to Virginia, where Ray is from originally. We always wanted to return to Hawaii and did, in 1985, and fell in love with Kona. Well, we bought a home, sold it in 2005 and built on Maka Nui Tui(loosely translated ('WAY TOO MUCH view'). Shortly after building our main house we completed Hale Luana. We wanted to share our happiness with as many folks as possible. What a wonderful place to live and sooo convenient to everything. We hope you can visit with us and realize the true feeling of living in paradise. Mahalo, Ray & Barb

The pool will be yours to use exclusively because the owners rarely use it and would rather you be free to enjoy at your leisure from 9 am to 6 pm. Also, the owners are only on Island a portion of the year so you'll have complete privacy of this almost 4 acre estate. Limited beach equipment for your use as well as a cooler. Enjoy your first morning cup of Kona coffee along with toast, tropical jam, and fruit from the property, when available.

Lovely home...perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at lovely Hale Luana in June.

The home is perfectly set up for 2 couples. Clean and well-maintained. We loved the location, view, privacy, and use of the pool! Yes, you can hear the birds in the morning and the coqui frogs some nights...but we didn't find it bothersome at all! You are close enough to zip into Kona...but it is so much nicer to be "up and away" from the crowds in town. Would love to return again! Barb is helpful, efficient, and responds quickly.

But don't take my word for a stay at Hale Luana and see for yourself!

Great place, location and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Would stay there again. View to die for, the Kona coast, beautiful large 2 bedroom guesthouse above the town. Pool which we didn't use, lani where we ate breakfast every morning and quiet sleeping. Grounds are native and beautifully kept up. Better than a resort!!!! We loved it.

Tremendous !!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet, home away from home on the Big Island-this is the place for you! The property is spacious and well-appointed. The views are never-ending especially from the pool and lanai. If you love fruit-there is an endless supply. Barb and Ray could not have been more gracious and hospitable during our stay. We look forward to our next visit. MAHALO!
