We are a family of five from Calgary, Alberta, Canada that has vacationed in the Hawaiian Islands for many years. It is our dream come true to own a small piece of paradise and a privilege to share it with others. The property was built in 1993, the year we were married and vacationed on the Big Island. We are thrilled that fate allowed us to acquire this amazing property as we celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2013.
Shannon Low purchased this house in 2013
Mr. Rockefeller, who developed the area in the 1960's, said it best: 'A great beach deserves a great hotel'. The Mauna Kea Resort and Beach are hands down the best on the Big Island. Perfect sand, ocean views and manicured tropical landscaping make this location absolutely stunning. You will never want to leave! Renovations to the Resort during 2017 will see Mauna Kea continue it's 50 year legacy of being the best on the Big Island!
The property is a perfect mix of spaces to both gather together as a group and to find individual peace and sanctuary. Cool off in your own pool if you don't want to leave! The many outdoor areas (upper deck, lanai, fitness deck and pool deck) provide an array of activities and spaces to customize your Big Island vacation. All of this complemented by impeccable landscaping and fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms! You will dream of returning!
Access to the exclusive Mauna Kea Beach, which is limited to the public, and the enjoyment of the many amenities of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel make our home the perfect pairing of private retreat and resort living. The home boasts an excellent balance of modern sophistication and Balinese living to perfectly capture the spirit of the islands. Beautiful wood and marble flooring with custom-cove wood ceilings adding to the luxurious furnishings. The multiple outdoor spaces and expansive views of ocean, Maui, mountain and golf course make this property truly spectacular. Secluded a notable distance from the highway, the property is quiet and peaceful. Driving into your expansive port-cochere and entering the formal yet inviting entryway, you will be welcomed by the warm island breezes and soothed by the always sunny Kohala weather. Sublime.

Our family loved that we could stay all together in a beautiful home, but run down to the beach and restaurants whenever we wanted. Mauna Kea Beach is one of the best beaches on the island, and to have unlimited access is amazing. We had a couple of dinners at Manta, and cooked a couple of dinners at home. The kitchen is big and fully stocked, and we enjoyed spending time cooking together as a family. We ate outside under the stars, and the evening weather was wonderful. We played games late into the night, and the location was so private that we didn't feel like we were bothering the neighbors.
When we weren't at the beach, the pool was wonderful. It was warm and we never had to use the pool cover.
The floor plan offered privacy, with the master being separate from the secondary bedrooms. The master bedroom had a memory foam bed that was really comfortable, and views that were incredible.
The detached guest room by the pool was a perfect area for the young adults who wanted to stay up later and enjoy the pool, but not bother others who wanted to sleep.
This was a great house for our family, and I can't wait to stay there again.
House is beautiful . Great location . Enjoyed our stay .
Recent 10 day stay at the Low house turned me into a raving fan. Rather than write a flowery narrative, here are bullet points that may be helpful to anyone trying to choose a place online, sight unseen:
• Everything worked! The place was very well furnished, top to bottom, no detail overlooked. When I say tasteful, I mean that all of the beds, blankets, linens, furniture, grills, appliances, cookware, table service, artwork, electronics, etc. were top notch and in great working condition. Also , items were setup for the baby prior to our arrival to include gate to keep her upstairs. Every request was addressed prior to our arrival.
• The view was just right (Still etched in my mind). The ocean in plain and close enough view buffered only by one of the spectacular Mauna Kea Golf holes.
• The entire property was that just right blend of multiple gathering places for group socializing and more than enough privacy in the bedroom and balcony layout when that was desirable.
• Location…well, it’s in Mauna Kea, which speaks for itself, but within the gated development it is perfectly situated a short (beautiful) stroll from the main resort and hotel complex – Beach Club and Golf and Tennis, etc.
• We were a group of 6 adults , all seasoned travelers and not strangers to world class accommodation….our opinions were unanimous…the place was spectacular.
Our family of 8 had a lovely stay.
They lay out of the well maintained home gave everyone privacy and rooms large enough for everyone to gather.
The decks and BBQ were a big hit.
We rented Shannon's home for 4 wonderful nights. The house and grounds were open and beautiful, just a 1/2 mile from the Mauna Kea beach. What a treat to be so close to a wonderful beach (best on the island) and resort, yet have all the amenities of home. Lisette, the property manager, met our family of 5 on site and thoroughly answered any questions we had. The rooms were very well appointed, and the kitchen stocked better than any other home we have rented. There is a ping pong table and a garage full of beach and pool toys for use. We felt safe and pampered during our stay.
Shannon responds quickly to her messages and has been a delight to work with. We are extremely picky when it comes to vacation lodging, and the White House By the Sea exceeded all our expectations. While on the island I highly recommend Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tours (8am flight) and taking a snorkeling excursion with Kona Island Adventures. Maybe dinner at the Four Seasons Ulu restaurant as well?
Thank you Shannon and family for the use of your lovely home. Mahalo!
We really enjoyed our stay at Hale Ke'oke'o - White House - by the Sea. Our party of three generations found the house to be perfect. Plenty of space to allow different interests to be pursued simultaneously.. ping-pong, pool-time and reading. Days were spent sight seeing – volcanoes, hiking and golf. We also spent time at the beautiful beaches at the resort. The kitchen is modern, impeccably clean and well stocked.
I can highly recommend Shannon’s home in Mauna Kea.
Located on the always sunny Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, our home is nestled within the Mauna Kea Beach Resort with access to the exclusive Mauna Kea Beach. Scenic drives to Hawi to the north, Kamuela to the east or Kona to the south offer unlimited opportunities for exploring. Near many beautiful beaches, Big Island upcountry, the Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historic Site, Mauna Kea Observatory, Lapakahi State Park, the Kawaihae Harbor, shopping and dining at Waikoloa and helicopter tours at Blue Hawaii, our home is the perfect base for your vacation on the Big Island. Whale watching can be done from our deck or a private catamaran from December to May. Don't miss Sunday Brunch at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, stargazing from the deck, the Farmer's Markets in Kamuela or snorkeling at Mauna Kea Beach!

Why waste hundreds of dollars a night on a small hotel room when you can bask in the luxury of our spacious Hawaiian sanctuary?
