Kailua-Kona Estate Rental Photos and Description

Luxury home with over 200' of oceanfront and incredible views

Spectacular oceanfront estate at Keauhou Bay. This fabulous home with soaring vaulted ceilings throughout the living room and into the Grand Master Suite, opens to the wonderfully landscaped yard fronting Keauhou Bay. The grand living room offers various seating and couches to relax and either watch television, read a book, play the piano, gaze out to the gardens and ocean or to sleep in the Balinese double day bed. The well appointed kitchen is a chefs dream with a cooking island looking out to the large dining room boasting open access to the lanais and grand views of the gardens, the pool and the ocean. In addition to the sub-zero refrigerator and freezer; the walk in pantry offers a walk in refrigerator, perfect for storage of all your food and beverage needs. This home offers 6 bedrooms with sleeping arrangements for 14 people. The Grand Master Suite has a king size bed and completely opens up to view the bamboo patch, the ocean and Keauhou Bay. The Grand Master Suite offers a walk in closet for him as well as one for her with access to each of their own private bathrooms by way of their own walk in closets. Originally designed as children rooms and Nanny quarters; the home offers 3 additional bedrooms off of the main living room and off of Her walk in closet and bathroom. First room, Guest Bedroom 1, accessed from the living room offers a bunk bed with a pull out bed to sleep three people in three twin size beds. This room has a door into Her Master walk in closet and bathroom. A second middle bedroom, Guest Bedroom 2 is accessed from the bunk bed room or through a private outside door off of the main garden entrance and front Grand Balinese entrance. This bedroom offers a Balinese queen size four posted pier bed and a small window mounted air conditioner. Guest Bedroom 2 opens to Her Master walk in closet with access to use that bathroom; or another door to access another shared bathroom. From en suite bathroom with the rock feature, there is access to a third bedroom, Guest Bedroom 3. Guest Bedroom 3 offers a queen size bed and has a private outside entry from the main garden entrance as well as a small window mounted air conditioner. Off of the main garden entrance is access to two more private Guest Suites located in another wing of the Bayhouse. Guest Suite 1 and Guest Suite 2 offer king size beds with private en suite bathrooms for each. These Guest Suites are designed like the Grand Master Suite in that they completely open up to the outside boasting wonderful views of the gardens, and up to the mountains from Guest Suite 2; and the gardens, the pool and out through the amazing array of palm trees to view the ocean from Guest Suite 1. This wing of the house offers a laundry/housekeeping room as well as an office/massage room. Situated on a large 39,000 square foot lot; the 70ft long outdoor pool, hot tub and zero entry kid pool is designed as a tropical paradise. The home is equipped with an array of water sports toys including kayaks, stand up paddle boards, long boards, body boards, life jackets, fins, masks and snorkels. The shoreline in front of the Bayhouse allows for ocean access in the unique local Big Island way. . . descending and traversing lava rocks. A few areas offer smooth pahoehoe lava rocks that formed natural steps to assist in climbing in and out of Keauhou Bay. A natural lava rock island sits just a few steps out from the property and is the perfect place to enjoy your moment of choice. From the island, stepping back on the lava rocks towards the house, feet now in the sand, looking back up at the Hokukano Bayhouse; you feel as if you are on stage as the custom stamped concrete stairs invite stadium seating view of where you stand. A great location for your special ritual or celebration; and a great home for your family vacation or intimate retreat getaway.

Perfect Wedding Idyll

  • 5 of 5

The house and property provided a perfect setting for our family wedding. The main bedrooms and bathrooms were enormous and well appointed. The lack of air conditioning was only a problem when humidity was high. The pool and grounds were lovely, and there was an abundance of kayaks and paddleboards available. Pua was a wonderful hostess, always available to answer questions and fix any minor problems quickly. Overall the house provided a magical place for wedding memories never to be forgotten.

Kailua-Kona, HI


  • 5 of 5

After touring the Hokukano House in 2014, my husband and I decided to have our wedding here in June of 2016. We could not have made a better decision. Hokukano Bay Estate is simply GORGEOUS and our 100 guests fit perfectly. I am so thankful for the three day minimum because trust me, you'll not want to leave. Upon arrival, we all felt like we had entered into a private island oasis. The home, the staff (Rosi & Pua!), the gentle sunsets, the inviting waters, the tropical setting were all so special. We'll keep this visit in our hearts forever! Thank You Hokukano!

Beautiful, but some drawbacks

  • 2 of 5

We rented this property for 4 days, for our daughter's wedding. It is so beautiful that we did not notice that there is only ONE bathroom in the main house, for use during a party. This became a real problem when it stopped working the morning of the wedding. The bathroom in the master bedroom was not working either. Roto-Rooter arrived just in time, but this is not an ideal setup for a large party.

Beautiful Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time with our one year old. We were greeted when we arrived and though there was always someone if we needed them, we were never bothered or interrupted, it was a very private stay. We did plenty of swimming and resting. The whole back of the house opens to the outside--with screens--so it was like living indoor outdoor. Any request we made--massage, boat, etc--was immediately responded to with kindness and perfect recommendations. The owner and his son and their staff are kind and accommodating, professional and welcoming. Whether it's a wedding and the ones you love or just an intimate vacation this is a special stay on the Big Island.

Amazing Estate!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about our stay at Hokukano Bayhouse. The estate is absolutely picturesque and beautiful. It is immaculately kept by the staff (Cookie and Rosi) who are just the sweetest and most helpful people you could ever meet. We had our wedding reception at Hokukano Bayhouse and it was beyond our wildest dreams! We used the lawn to set up outdoor seating for dinner beneath the stars. There was plenty of space for guests as well as for us the get ready for the big day. Honestly, if you can manage it, stay at won't be disappointed. Again, we have to thank Cookie, who was there to first show us the residence and then Rosi who was there when we finally checked in. They were beyond helpful and available for any questions we had during our stay. We can't wait to stay at Hokukano again soon (we hope!)!!!!

Joy abounds from this amazing venue, great staff!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have imagined a more beautiful place to gather to celebrate life, family, friendship and the marriage of our daughter. Joy and peace seem to emanate from the magnificent wood that speaks from the spirit of old Hawaii mixed with a Balinese feel. We used all of the amenities: pool, sauna, spa, snorkel and paddle-board and saw mantas and whales around the bay.

Beautifully stocked kitchen with walk-in fridge was a dream for us to cook and serve our 50 guests. The first-aid drawer for pets as well as their care-givers is just a glimpse of the extraordinary care given to details. The maintenance and care provided by Cookie and Rosie was superb and they worked overtime to clean up after the storm for us. Easy overflow parking is available at the Sheraton across the street.

The property has a fascinating history, with interesting furnishings. This is a highly recommended, very special experience. Photos simply cannot due justice to his magnificent venue which exceeded all of our expectations in every way. Lifetime memories were made and we already yearn to return. Thank you.
