About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Hale Wailele (Waterfall House) is a beautiful, spacious home with floor to ceiling windows in the great room looking out onto fountains in the pool with an incredible ocean view beyond the palm trees and torches. The architecture of the home makes it unique and inviting with artistic touches such as arches and cathedral ceilings throughout.

The master bedroom is furnished with a king bed, flat-screen TV, garden tub with separate shower, Toto bidet commode, and infra-red sauna.

Bedroom two has a king and a queen bed, TV in an armoire, recliner, and full guest bath.

Bedroom three has a king bed, TV and sitting area.

The den has a flat-screen TV, recliner, and a pullout sofa. It opens to a fenced side yard perfect for game of croquet or bocce. The den and bedroom three share a full guest bath.

The loft looks over the great room, has a computer desk, foosball table, 2 queen futons and 1 double futon.

The 4th bathroom is a tropical outdoor bathroom complete with a basalt tub, rain shower, two vanities, and a separate commode (with an ocean view=)!

The gourmet kitchen features stainless appliances and two adjoining dining areas. There are also two bar areas.

If you prefer to cook and dine on the lanai, we have a large stainless gas grill, an Evo grill, and a high intensity gas burner for the big lobster pots. There is seating for 10 at two lanai tables.

There is also a separate o'hana (guest studio 18X18 ft.) available for an extra charge, please contact us for rates and details.

Our home is in a quiet residential area, and therefore we do not offer it for weddings, meetings or parties. The enjoyment of the house, pool etc. is limited to the individuals listed on the rental agreement.

Also a quick note about our animal friends :)

Geckos: Because of the tropical climate and vegetation in Hawaii you are likely to see our friends the geckos. They are a beautiful bright green with a few magenta spots. They have no teeth, are harmless, and considered good luck on the islands because they eat harmful insects. They are most easily spotted outside by lights waiting for dinner, but can fit through the smallest openings and are sometimes seen inside as well. If you see one inside and prefer not to have its company, please just toss a hand towel over it and release it into the gardens.

Birds: There are many birds around the house and throughout the neighborhood including Brazilian cardinals, finches, doves, exotic pheasants, chickens, and others. While they are fabulous to watch and a favorite part of the tropics, they can also be noisy for light sleepers. We recommend adding a sleep app to any smart phone or bringing earplugs if you think you might be bothered.

About Alanya Berthiaume

Our family lives in Texas and we love to travel and experience new things. The Big Island of Hawaii is one of our favorite destinations because it has so much to offer. We have been coming to Kona for decades and we discover something new every time. The picture above was taken in 2010 right next to the flowing lava! What an incredible experience!

Alanya Berthiaume purchased this house in 2002

Why Alanya Berthiaume chose Kona Coast

I started coming to Kona in 1976 when my mom and dad decided it was the perfect vacation destination. I have come back with my family almost every year since. We chose Hale Wailele in Kona Heavens because of its ideal location on the Big Island. The house is a short drive to the airport, harbor, beaches and shopping. It is conveniently located between Kailua to the South, and the famous Kohala resorts to the North. Kona is on the drier side of the island so the coast is almost always sunny and warm, while the house is located at 1000 feet elevation with slightly cooler, incredibly comfortable temperatures. It is on a landscaped acre of land with palms, fruit trees and flowers, at the end of a cul-de-sac, so there is very little traffic.

What makes this house unique

We have a caretaker on site who can address any issues that may arise during your stay. If you'd like for me to email you a letter that lists some of my favorite restaurants, beaches, activities etc. just let me know. Aloha, Alanya

Beautiful, Spacious and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything represented - and more. We felt as though we were the only ones on the island due to the privacy of the property, yet it's so conveniently located. It was much more room than our party of 6 needed, but that provided plenty of options for gathering and quiet spaces for reading or reflecting on the day's adventures. I had never heard of an EVO grill, but now we all want one! It was wonderful to cook up a couple of breakfasts for everyone at the same time and made fajitas a snap.

The most unique quality of renting this home was the personal attention; we felt like part of the family, not renters. Alanya was responsive and welcoming from my first contact, and I have never rented a home with an on-site caretaker! It was like having a personal concierge. He was amazing - welcoming us, responding to questions within minutes, and providing us with beach chairs and an umbrella, which made our visits to Two Steps for snorkeling (a local told us about it; amazing!) and Green Sand Beach much more comfortable.

I'm still dreaming of our stay . . .

Beautiful and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We took our adult children and grandchild and we had such a great time. With everyone able to have their separate areas was the best. When one wanted time alone they could retreat t their private area. The hot tub and the pool were enjoyed by all at the start of the day and then after a day of sightseeing.

The house was just beautiful. Enjoyed returning at night and having a relaxing drink on the patio. House was nicely located to many things we did. Just a relaxing place. Could not have asked for better. Would definitely come back again.

Much more than ever expected .

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning, the owners contacted us and made us feel like we were part of their "home". The home, Itself, was one of the most lovely places we've ever stayed. It had provisions for almost everything you could want to use on a vacation, and so much more. We had candlelight dinners as the sun set , and visited with friends as we sat in the hot tub to soothe our aching bodies from all the days' adventures. We were truly blessed by the owners" home and this beautiful place called Hawaii. Mahola.

My Dream House

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week's stay on the Big Island at this beautiful home. Let me just say, pictures don't do this place justice. We were a party of 5 though we were supposed to be a party of 7.....3 beds were never used. This house is truly spacious and we never felt claustrophobic. There are windows everywhere and wonderful views! The home is at the end of a dead end street so the only thing you hear are sprinklers and the morning wakeup songs of the birds at 6 a.m. (which only last about 15 minutes). So if your plan is to sleep in, you can still get a few more zzz's after the serenade. :-)

Here are a few things I loved about the house:

- comfy beds

- big bathrooms

- big kitchen

- lots of places to eat (inside and outside)

- nice size swimming pool

- large hot tub (we had 4 grown ups in it....could have easily seated 2 more)

- sauna (though we never used)

- washer & dryer (I know....rather odd to are on vacation right? Let me say that I hate this weekly chore.....then why did I wash multiple times? Maybe it was the wonderful view, rising early to have my coffee and listen to the birds while everyone else slept, or maybe because that domestic chore made me feel like this was really My Home....and folding clothes seemed kind of fun. Crazy, huh?)

- games to play, books to read, movie drawer, fuzball table

- AWESOME grill (it's an EVO) Had no idea what an EVO was, but I will say that I must have one now. :-) We were able to cook pancakes, bacon, eggs, and french toast on 15 minutes! No joke. (with 2 people working it of course!) We also cooked chicken, shrimp, hamburgers and vegetables on it too.

- Chest full of swimming pool toys

- Lots of beach towels

- Access to beach chairs, ice chests, and boogie boards

- Friendly caretakers on site to answer any questions

- Close to town

- Easy & quick access to airport (about 15 minutes away)

- AWESOME SUNSET VIEWS OVER THE OCEAN (don't forget your camera....though my iphone 6 took some amazing sunset pics)

I'm sure there are things I am leaving out, but the best thing I could say is, if you have a large family or you are traveling with a group of people, you will not regret staying here. Or if money is no object and you are a party of only 2 or 3, grab it......and sleep in a different bed every night! Enjoy your vacation to the Big Island!

Fantastic stay on the Big Island Kona, beyond our wildest dreams!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome experience we had staying at Alanya's home. The home is a mansion, unlike anything you've ever seen. There are so many architectural features and quality details that you would think you are in a cathedral. Huge, spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and plenty of closets. Pool, jacuzzi, fussball table, hammock, tiki torches, all add up to provide you with lifetime memories. Wet bar with drinks provided, and welcome package were other features that made us feel like home.

Location is perfect too since it is only about 10 minutes from the Kailua-Kona airport, and about 5 minutes to Costco. If you want the cheapest gas, that's where you should go. We found Costco gas to be $1 less per gallon than any other station around.

Home is on a hill with an awesome view of the ocean with enough of a breeze and trade winds to keep it cool, even during the "hot" month of July we vacationed.

Alanya was the perfect host as well as her housekeeper couple who made us feel like long lost relatives. I would need a few more hours to describe all the great memories we have of this home but unfortunately I am out of time.

If this home is available don't even waste your time with other properties on the island.

Nearest Airport
7.5 Miles
Kona International Airport at Keahole
Nearest Beach
5 Miles
Car: necessary

Kona is known for its world-class marlin fishing. We are almost directly above Honokohau Harbor which has a fun restaurant for lunch and is also where the fishing charters and many other ocean activities (sunset sails, manta ray snorkleing and diving cruises, zodiak tours, whale watching etc.) are based. There are some wonderful white sand beaches and tide pool areas within a 10 or 15 minute drive. Costco is also just about a 5 minute drive and is a great place to stock up for your vacation and it is usually the most economical place to buy gas.
