Aloha, e komo mai (welcome)!! Come experience our luxurious villa at the prestigious Hali’i Kai oceanfront gated community conveniently located on the sunny Kohala Coast on the Big Island’s Waikoloa Resort where we average 7” of rain a year (the driest in the state). Boasting 2 18-hole championship world-class golf courses and shopping, our hale (home) offers an opportunity to experience a true unmatched island retreat. Note:…you may quickly feel the affects or our ‘Polynesian paralysis’ before long.
AMENITIES: One of Hali'i Kai’s famous features is it's private ocean front club with a magnificent multi level free form pool with aqua loungers, waterfalls, sand bottom lava spa hot tub and attached Keiki pool. Adjacent is a café restaurant and fitness area with unobstructed views overlooking the blue Pacific. Adorned with balmy island breezes at oceans edge, our oceanfront club features spectacular views, BBQS available to enjoy with family and friends, an outdoor garden covered lounge area, luxurious bathroom facility, poolside cabanas, with a relaxing atmosphere. All year round, glorious sunsets are the norm and during our winter months, take pleasure in lots of whale watching and view of the incredible surf.
VILLA: Conveniently situated in the center of Hali’I Kai, less than 400 yards from the ocean, our villa is luxuriously furnished and decorated reflecting the understated Hawaiian elegance found amongst top notched world-class resorts and hotels. As original kama`aina (local) owners, we are fortunate to have this fabulous Villa that Centex (the developer) built with such style and elegance. Our lanai is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or perhaps an ocean view sunset dinner while grilling on our new Weber grill complete with cooking utensils. Sunbathing or simply watching golfers on the adjacent lawn area on this ground floor unit without stairs makes for easy access. The Villa is primarily decorated and appointed with distinctive designer furnishings featuring Hawaiian elegance with a hint of an Asian flair. The Master bedroom has a Cal king bed (from which an ocean view may be enjoyed:), large private master bath with granite counter tops with dual sinks, large walk in shower with bench and a separate deep soaking tub. The guest bedroom has 2 xl twins (which can be converted to a full Cal King at your request), and the other guestroom features a queen size bed, detailed accents with views of the gorgeous Mauna Kea and Kohala Mountains with beautiful morning sunrises. The guest bathroom is complete with tub/shower, granite counter tops and sink. The attention to detail won’t be missed. The relaxing living area has a couch, chairs and ottoman, wall mounted LCD panel, blueray player, premium cable with HBO. Adjacent is an elegant dining area with seating for 6+ with a chandelier. The upgraded kitchen is complete and fully stocked with everything from an espresso maker with enough cooking utensils and gadgets to make a full scrumptious Thanksgiving meal. Equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops & bar stools, you’ll want for nothing. Our hale has a laundry room with washer/dryer and laundry supplies. We have complimentary High-speed wireless Internet, telephone for complimentary long distant calls to all Hawaiian Island, Canada, Mexico and all of USA. We have 2 bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, basketball, tennis racquets (courts are across the street).
RESORT: The Waikoloa Beach Resort has upscale shopping, gorgeous black, green & white sand beaches (ask us we'll tell you some well kept secrets), petroglyph sites (rock etchings used as the ancient form of Hawaiian communication), 2 golf courses. Our favorite restaurant is located in the Queens shops right on the resort, Sansei’s…..and not just because our son Justin works there. We'll include a complimentary certificate to ROY'S for their unmatched scrumptious Chocolate Soufflé. You haven't lived until you've experienced this!!! As our guest on the resort, you are entitled to special green fees at the Beach golf course and the Kings golf course.

About Laurie Jo
OWNERS: I was born and raised in Hawaii (3rd generation), met my husband Paul in '78 and have been residing together on the Big Island since while working in luxury hotels, destination management and hospitality industry. We are committed to providing excellence. This means being creative, detailed, informed, and in synch with your objectives as a visitor and guest of our Hale. We are also focused on extending and sharing our cultural and spirit of aloha. This means ensuring you are treated to the warmth, generosity, diversity, and heritage of the island and it's people.
Laurie Jo purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Laurie Jo chose Puako
Location, location, location!! Because we are established here on island and in the luxury hospitality industry, it didn't take long to realize how special this complex and unit really are. There's a sense of warmth and Aloha spirit every time we step foot in our Hale. We know the area very well and had lots to choose from, but something magical about this place sets it apart from all others. This is our second HK property and our dream villa. We hand't planned on buying another but this was the only other unit we would have ever wanted and it became available when our good friends put it on the market.
What makes this Villa unique
There is such a peaceful, serene and tranquil feeling within the Hale and complex yet one can be moments from action, restaurants, shopping, cultural activities, golf and much much more. Although we live on island, we love our mini vacations at the beach!!

Perfect. Everything we needed was there.
We could not have expected a nicer home. Not one element was missing.
Loved having you stay at our Ohana. We're grateful to be a part of your get away and special family time. Enjoyed meeting you and feeling especially blessed to have a new yoga sister!! Mahalo for choosing to stay with us.
Well kept ground floor is exactly what we were looking for.
2 1/2 year old granddaughter was able to run thru the grass in her bare feet. The pool was perfect for lounging and small children. The bikes were convienent. Thanks for wonderful visit.
Central location with Excellent amenities
After spending half our visit to the big island in Hilo, 7H served as our home base to relax for the remainder of our trip. With an excellent location and phenomenal views we were so happy to have stayed here and Laurie Jo was so prompt and helpful with her replies to all of our questions. Initially we debated on whether a villa suited our needs versus the typical amenities you have in resort hotels. However the privacy of a gated community, a full chef's kitchen, garage full of bikes, sports and beach equipment, access to the resort clubhouse and a perfect view of the sunset over the ocean, were all advantages 7H had and we immediately recognized we had made the right decision. Highly recommended 5 Stars all around. Mahalo.
Another vacation with Laurie Jo and Paul and everything was perfect, just like usual. When you enter the unit you are taken with the cleanliness, the golf course view (perfect for watching whales jump), the large flexible flatscreen TV and the comfortable inviting big sofa. The kitchen has all the necessary toys. The master bedroom king sized bed is the best. And the second suite is nicely designed for privacy. No need to turn on the air conditioning. The unit is on a slight hill so the breezes are wonderful. What can we say? We love 7H and Laurie Jo’s and Paul’s hospitality. That’s why we’ve booked for 2019 already!
Excellent location. Very clean and well kept within a very high end gated and private complex. Owner was very responsive to all questions.
Mahalo. Come back soon.
Forget the Rest, This One is the Best!
We've stayed at five other Halii Kai units, this one easily tops them. It's got it all, location (view, pool close, courts close, quiet), totally equipped kitchen, first class entertainment equipment, art work, super comfy furniture(beds), all sports stuff, very good beach furniture and toys, and our favourite four excellent bikes. But the thing that makes this one so good is the property owner/manager. Laurie Jo sincerely wants you to have the best vacation ever, by giving kind immediate service. Mahalo and can't wait until next time. The Adams
Wow, you are so kind. Mahalo for your wonderful support and Kokua. Can't wait to welcome you back!! Have a wonderful 2018!!
