Gather in this large home on the Hamakua Coast, just north of Hilo. With 5 acres, sweeping ocean views and a beautifully appointed house with your own Tiki bar, you will feel the Aloha Spirit of Hawaii! For larger groups, also rent the Ola Kai Cottage.

OLA KAI VIEWS is the perfect gathering place for family and friends travelling to East Hawaii. Located just North of Hilo on the stunning Hamakua Coast in the tiny village of Wailea, you will embrace the rural privacy while being in a great location for exploring both the east and west sides of the island. Within an hour's drive in either direction there are surf and swimming spots, botanical gardens, zip line adventures, the power of flowing lava at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, magical driving tours, Hilo farmer's market and so much more! Hike to close by Kolekole park and dip in the water, or for less adventourouse guests, it is about a 5 minute drive.

WITH OVER 2,000 SQUARE FEET INSIDE AND ANOTHER 1,000 SQUARE FEET OF LANAIS, you and your guests will have lots of room to spread out, both inside and out. The property entrance is framed with a cacao plantation for your pleasure and beauty. Almost every room in the house has expansive views. There are two private, master suites each with a Cal-King bed and ensuite bathroom. The Orchid suite bathroom has an extra large walk-in shower and walk-in closet. The bright Plumeria room set privately off the Tiki Bar lanai. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a fresh, turquoise ocean decor.

THE TIKI BAR is a fun representation of the surfing culture of Hawaii. Enjoy your evening Mai Tais on this open air lanai outfitted with a bar, gas grill, lounge area and surf and tiki decor. All of this and sweeping ocean views too! The lawns at OLA Kai also offer a great place for playing frisbee, soccer, croquet, bocce ball and other games. The owners have provided these fun games for you!

a gem

  • 5 of 5

We spent our last 5 days at Ola Kai Views, and what a perfect ending. The house has a beautiful tropical decor, was wonderfully clean and the location was so inviting and relaxing. The property is spacious and the game room was a big hit , we loved the Tiki bar and the fruit trees . We felt so comfortable, just like home. About the only thing that could perfect this place more is a swimming pool. Both Maiko and John were so helpful, with any questions we had, they both went above and beyond to make us feel at home once there and during our planning the trip. We thank you very much for such a beautiful vacation ending! It was truly a trip of a lifetime for us! We hope to visit you again someday.

We stayed there for 5 days. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every room of this house.

We loved the tiki bar area to relax and watching sun rise. Thank you for Ms. Megumi. She was such a great host and very helpful.

We will defiantly stay this place again.

Fruits trees are amazing!!

Wonderful home, great view & amenities.

Grown kids enjoyed spa, pool, ping pong, etc. Kitchen had all the basics needed.

A little difficult to find, especially at night, but worth it once you arrive!

The Gracious Ladies

  • 5 of 5

Myself along with 6 other ladies spent 4 nights at this beautiful vacation home! Very clean and lots of space to spread out. Some of us even had our own sleeping area. We used every room in the house except the studio with the rec room and hot tub. Our last dinner was eaten in the Tiki Bar (part of the house) which was very cool. We hope to be staying at this beautiful home again next year during Merrie Monarch. Oh and we were fortunate to meet the manager Maiko who introduced us to one of the owners who were both very sweet. One of our ladies received a text from Maiko saying she left a desert in fridge, so sweet. Again, this vacation home definitely has that "WOW!" factor. We hope to be staying here again in 2016.

As soon as we approached the gated driveway we were awestruck by the beauty of Ola Kai Views. We were greeted by Maiko and Kazemaru and they had so much aloha!

The house is excellent and so peaceful. This property is the perfect place to unwind. We used the studio/game room/gym to practice our dancing. Awesome is the only word I can think of to describe our expeience at Ola Kai Views. We are definetly going there again.
