Kehena Beach Estates House Rental Photos and Description

Absolute Oceanfront Romantic Beach House ..with Spa like Pool and Roof Top Deck!

Aloha from Kehena Beach House!

Precariously perched high on a lush tropical sea cliff amid a mature coconut forest at the ocean's absolute edge stands this extremely private and totally remodeled electrically gated, secure romantic escape for two which was designed with purely indulgent luxury in mind in every gorgeous detail.

The unobstructed panoramic views of Kehena Black sand beach and bay that one can enjoy from the living room, bedroom, kitchen, and both of the covered and uncovered open air oceanfront lanais (decks) coupled with the Tommy Bahama style high end designer furnishings and the 100% Turkish travertine tiled floors that extends to the dramatic upper level lanai with glass railing is guaranteed to leave you in awe.

The privileged guests of Kehena Beach House will be treated to the only private residence in this quaint coastal beach community that has no immediate neighbor on either side and has the only in ground oceanfront pool.

The beach house overlooks the beach to the left and it overlooks the coconut forest and the agricultural half acre parcel that adjoins the beach house to the right. The agricultural parcel is maintained by the developer to grow pineapple, sweet Hawaiian apple bananas, citrus, fragrant flowers and various species of native plants. It is not occupied or accessible, but it incorporates the 6 foot high lava rock walls that encircle the entire compound of which you are the only guests.

Upon your arrival , you will notice that the oceanfront block is secured with 6 foot lava rock walls adorned with a series of elaborate artistic copper gates and matching light fixtures. All were custom designed by famed Honolulu based french sculptor Frederic Zimmer. The entry pillars of the series of gates will be automatically illuminated throughout each evening for your convenience and security. Meticulously maintained professionally landscaped yard with a sprawling lawn that greets you with a large variety of colorful and flowering pleasantly scented tropical fauna as well as a cozy hammock that hangs beneath a pair of coconut trees. A spectacular young banyan tree, for which the island is well known, is a central fixture to the front yard. A private garden of exotic fruit trees and over twenty different varieties of flowering heliconia is situated across the street, caticornered to the beach house. Many of the cut flowers found inside of the beach house are, in fact, grown on site.

There is a large open air deck at the front door where you can enjoy the view of both the magnificent gardens and the rocky blue pacific ocean from the comfortable Thomasville crafted glass top outdoor table with cushioned seating for up to four.

The one thousand square foot beach house features a tropical themed bedroom with a California king bed and a den that views both the pool and the ocean on the lower level. Both rooms access the covered oceanfront lower level lanai through sliding glass doors and directly view the ever-changing seascape of the blue pacific ocean. The bathroom is wrapped in Turkish travertine tile with a glass block shower with a massage feature. The toilet seat is heated and has a built in wash let with both washer and dryer apparatus. A washer and dryer is located adjacent to the bedroom.

Upstairs you will encounter a great room concept with a fully equipped kitchen with all modern stainless steel appliances (refrigerator with ice maker, oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher, disposal), solid granite counter tops. An over sized bistro table capable of seating up to four abuts the kitchen. The living room has 2 large sofas with an ottoman and a large flat screen wall mounted TV with DVD player that can also be viewed from the dining area. Dish network provides access to over 250 channels. WiFi is provided at no extra charge. A private phone line with free unlimited calls to anywhere in the 50 united states is provided. The upper level has designer ceiling fans and a series of sliding glass doors that permit the cooling trade winds to offer excellent cross ventilation.

The two oceanfront decks provide dramatic direct viewing of the roaring pacific ocean which is literally crashing below your feet against the 50 foot rocky sea cliffs. It is also an excellent place to sunbathe in the buff. There is no disturbance of noisy neighbors or traffic on this cul de sac which is Kehena beach estate's most exclusive enclave of private gated absolute oceanfront residences.

The custom in ground oceanfront pool that abuts the beach house can either be accessed directly from the covered oceanfront lower level deck, or from the lava rock style stepping stones that one encounters in the front yard gardens that lead to a gated 6 foot lava rock wall. The lava rock style concrete pool is a work of art unto itself. It is situated within an exotic tropical garden where a variety of fragrant flowering tropical plants such as gardenia, Queen Emma's lily, Tonga taboo and the ever popular Hawaiian Puakenekene flourish. The pool has a keyed entry via an electrically operated canvas cover that promotes the efficiency of the solar powered heated water to the pool when it is not in use. The pool features a Fastlane device by endless pools which provides one with the option to swim in place at one's desired pace at the touch of a button. Additionally, there is an underwater light for night time use of the pool and a poolside switch to turn on the soothing jets. The pool is so private that one can skinny dip in complete privacy and concurrently enjoy the view at the ocean's edge.

It is hoped by the developer of Kehena Beach House that you have been provided with a helpful and accurate portrayal of what precisely you might encounter if you elect to visit here at this splendid one of a kind honeymooner's delight. We look forward to assisting you in enjoying a most memorable , relaxing, yet adventurous visit to one of the world's most intriguing and scenic land and sea scapes and are confident of your return patronage and referral to your friends, family, acquaintances and colleagues.

Mahalo nui loa (many thanks)

About Iliahi

We manage this beautiful cliff house for our good friend and neighbor of many years. We love Hosting Guest from all over the world. Aloha and E Komo Mai!

Why Iliahi chose Pahoa

The owner wanted to offer this amazing home right on the cliff. The House captures the amazing views from almost every room and it even overlooking Kehena Black Sand Beach home to spinner dolphins and humpback whales in winter months! The East side of Hawaii captures amazing sunrises and constant trade winds.

What makes this house unique

Located on the Puna Coast with its lush beauty and closeness to the ocean. Roof Top Deck, Heated & Jetted Pool. This property is gated and very Private!

Guestbook comments from the manager

An unbelievable view and a very luxurious house where we could relax and unwind. The grounds and tropical gardens are beautiful. My wife and I absolutely love this place. Sitting on the deck and looking out at the ocean, seeing Spinner dolphins playing in the bay, was an amazing experience. The nearby lava fields and flows were spectacular. Love the black sand beach. We were very well taken care of, and everything about our stay was delightful. Can't wait to come back.

Absolute waterfront

  • 5 of 5

Back home in Baltimore it is already hard to believe that this place is real. perched right at the edge of the lava cliffs it has great panaramic views from the bedroom, the great room, and all four lanais. Kehena beach is also part of the view and is also just a five minute walk. Although there are other homes in the area, it is also extremely private while still being very close to Red Road. A really nice stay.

Amazing Location

  • 3 of 5

This was the best place to choose from. The views were amazing and the house very nice. There were a few problems, we didn't know it was off the grid and my husband was unable to make long distance calls from his cell which he needs for his business. It also smelled strongly of mildew. We know this is the nature of living in the tropics but it affected our stay. Not having air conditioning was tough, it was extremely hot. It's hard giving a review, because it's amazing beautiful. 360 degree views. I guess from the other raving reviews thougj, we were expecting a better all around experience. There are no signs saying Kehena anywhere on the road. Just want to warm others of these things....

Owner's Response: I don't really know what to say other than... Did you really stay here? This property is NOT "Off-Grid" and there is not any ANY cell signal (unless Wifi calling is done). Strong mildew smell??? You really didn't stay here as any smell would be from the ocean spray or "Salt Air" from the crashing waves. This property has DishTV, Wifi, In-ground Pool, Electric BBQ grill & Free Long Distance to ALL neighboring Islands and the Mainland US! Unless you used your cell providers WiFi Calling feature, your cell phone would not have worked here! The property is right on the ocean cliff and get's constant trade winds. You must have either had ALL the windows closed or you didn't stay at this property. We have not had ANY guests contact us regarding the concerns you expressed, as we live next door it would have been easy to contact us. That is why I think you have our property confused with a different property. Mahalo

  • 5 of 5

What a place. The landscaping is immaculate. And thoughtful. Besides aesthetics, this place would pass privacy standards for the likes of Sean Penn as well.

Be prepared for three worlds all wrapped into one. At least, over six nights, that was our experience. It was exhilarating. First, the sunshine. From 10am-4pm you get all the UV your body can stand (I wore UV protective clothes, in fact). Then, one or two days may be a refreshingly rainy world, occasionally torrentially. And the third world is the night and the crescendo of sounds and distant sights of stars and ships that emerge almost out of nowhere.

With these three worlds, this is not the Four Seasons. Unless you arrange for daily housekeeping, things fog up, and you become aware of both trade winds and Kona winds in a way no air conditioned person would have reason to know. In that way, it is more connecting than Four Seasons.

We got basic things, like milk and eggs and smoothie ingredients and a few comfort foods at the onset and heeded Tim’s advice on where to eat locally (40 minutes away) so maintaining our nutrition worked out, more or less.

How things work may also depend on your approach to your stay at the beach house. In our case, we used our stay as a launch pad and not a sole destination. Every day of stay we had an excursion of a few hours or more that would also include eating a meal somewhere. Approaching the beach house solely as a destination would require a bit more thought about menu planning in advance than we had done.

We had two very minor service issues during our stay and in both cases, Tim and Iliahi handled them quickly and unobtrusively.

In summary, about as luxuriously landscaped an experience and all-encompassing views you can have in Hawaii, at the price, while still maintaining a direct connection with the enviable Hawaiian climate. This is not a hermetically sealed Four Seasons experience (or Four Seasons furniture for that matter), but rather an incredibly intimate and secluded and lushly opulent view of pristine island beauty. With a heated freshwater pool-sized Jacuzzi with motorized swim lane adjacent to the house or a clothing optional public black sand beach 350 yards away or remarkable non-boat snorkeling a short drive away, or a couple of mile hike to see a live lava flow, it’s a difficult combination to beat.

We look forward to returning next year.

Hawaii on my Mind

  • 5 of 5

Kehena Beach House was amazing! My husband and I enjoyed the house completely. We sat out and enjoyed the ocean views at all four balconies/lanais, cooked breakfast every morning with no problems, swam in the pool everyday, laid out on the hammock, and slept like babies listening to the ocean in the master bedroom. Two days we were there, we are able to spot some dolphins from the balcony! Kehena Beach was a 5 minute walk and it was convenient - water was deep, but cool and it was our first time being in a black sand, clothing optional beach. Although we hit some tourist spots and had planned for more, we didn't do much because we loved spending time at the beach house. No regrets! We'll do more sightseeing at a later trip. After coming back home, we think about the Big Island and the beach house constantly and can't wait to return. The champagne, chocolates, and the shell necklaces were a nice touch, Tim and Ilahi.

I am sitting here trying to come up with words to describe our time at the beach house and all I keep thinking is WOW! My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this property for 12 nights and what an experience it was. Everything was perfect and we still have a feeling of ZEN!

If you are considering another property, don't! You will never regret booking this vacation...

Tim and Iliahi were great hosts who are there to ensure your stay is everything you hoped for.

We are already planning our return for 2018!
