Tree House Hale: Situated High Amongst The Trees

Homes Over Kona:  Property Description

Enjoy resort living on hillside slopes at a perfect elevation. Aromatic tropical breezes, spring-like temperatures, and birds singing in this sub-climate are to be sure to tickle your senses. Not too hot, not too cold, Homes Over Kona are located centrally in the historic, quaint, artsy coffee town above Kona called Holualoa. Only 10 min. away, Kona’s shoreline beaches, downtown, and neighboring Captain Cook Town are all very conveniently located.

Homes Over Kona is a complex of four private homes of different sizes and this particular listing is for the Tree House Hale (2A). Description of this unit is listed in detail below. To rent the whole property exclusively please visit vrbo #482045 or homeaway #482045vb.

This complex is newly built (2013) and furnished modern-tropical, with an Asian-Hawaiian flair. The 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa is communal. Exclusive use of the Private Infinity Edge Pool with Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River is reserved for the main Grandview Hale.

The pools are all solar heated and designed to feel as if you are sitting in natural Hawaiian waters. Both the private Main pool and Waterfall Lagoon pool boast deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and giant lava beds to lay and relax on. The Waterfall Lagoon has a 15 foot waterfall drop that trickles and streams down creating an ambiance that only the sounds of water can offer.

The gardens are abundant with walking paths full of fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Yes, you can even pick and make your own lei. Majestic Monkey Pod trees canopy over the property and provide perfect shade for reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock. Fruit trees are everywhere and you are welcome to pick what you can eat. Fruits on the property include plum, serinam cherries, guava, lychee, mangosteen, rambutan, mango, papaya, star fruit, pomegranate, avocados, coffee, many kinds of citris, and our secret miracle berry. Guests will also receive a bag of our local Kona coffee that is grown, picked and roasted right here in Holualoa.

Homes Over Kona is a unique property designed to keep you in tune with the aloha spirit of Hawaii. We want to share our air, our fauna, our wildlife. We want to welcome you to our homes.

TREE HOUSE HALE: Unit Description

Situated high up amongst the trees, we call this the Tree House Hale.  Second to the main Grandview Hale, this is our largest home. It has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably, but can accommodate 8 (additional fee).

After reading a book or just relaxing on our screened-in lanai, step into your huge, open-plan living and dining area. The dining table comfortably seats 6 and there is a bar counter for an additional 3 seats. The living room is furnished with ultra-comfortable leather couches, and a large flat screen HDTV offering Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, etc. It’s perfect for unwinding after a busy day on the boat or at the golf course. Expansive 10’ sliding glass doors on both sides of the living room offer tropical breezes, country views, and a feeling of openness connecting you to the beauties of Hawaii.

The kitchen boasts mahogany custom cabinets with granite countertops and a bar top for a casual snack or chat. Inside the cupboards you'll find a complete set of cookware, dishes, and utensils, to complement the host of time-saving appliances: microwave, blender, coffeemaker, rice maker and dishwasher (to name a few). Even if you love our kitchen, we also provide a BBQ in the garden so you can watch our fabulous sunsets turn to dusk.

This home has a Master Bedroom (king bed) with connecting bathroom and Jacuzzi jet tub. The sink is separate to the bathing and restroom area so that each individual can have their privacy. The second bedroom has a queen bed and third bedroom has a pair of twin beds. Each bedroom is suited with well designed bedding. This house can accommodate an additional 2 persons with portable futons or beds to be set up in the living areas or on the screen enclosed lanai (deck). The second bathroom also offers the sink separate to the bathing and restroom area for maximum efficiency.

Other amenities include a large laundry washer and dryer along with beach towels and extra pillows and linens. You can enjoy complimentary high speed wireless internet for all of your electronics as well as access to a complimentary Netflix account where you will find a vast array of movies for both children and adults. Cable TV is not offered in this unit, however internet TV is installed for movies, youtube, news, sports, etc. A sports gym only 10 minutes away offers day or short stay passes which give you full access to their facility at a minimal charge.

This particular unit shares the use of the 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa. (The Private Infinity Edge Pool, Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River are reserved for the main Grandview Hale). All pools are solar heated boasting deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and designed with giant lava beds to lay and relax on. Waterfalls trickle down the sides and above your heads offering the true ambiance of vacationing in Hawaii.

This 2 acre property has over 2000 feet of walking paths and country roads to explore. If you look carefully, you may also find a mini lava tube. Gardens are full of Hawaiian fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful local plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Available are lei making tools, suggestions and instruction guides to show you how. Yes, you can pick and make your own sweet smelling leis to wear to dinner. Fruit trees are everywhere and when ripe, you are welcome to pick what you can eat. Coffee plants abound offer you the true feel of a coffee farm. Reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock is made perfect under the Majestic Monkey Pod trees which canopy the property and provide perfect shade. The 1000 foot elevation sub climate introduces comfortable breezes and temperatures specifically experienced in this Holualoa area and nothing like the sticky hot found along the shoreline or the cold found at the much higher elevations. 1000 feet is the perfect elevation. You found the Best.

About Emily Hill

designed by the owners who fell in love with the land and built the homes to represent Hawaii with minimal disturbance to the 2 acres it sits on.

The owners careers are in the art, design and event fields and these attributes are made evident in the homes offered.

The colors, themes, and landscaping to the homes compliment the nature which abounds us. Black and red for lava. Green and browns for nature and deep blues represent our oceans. Genuine stone and woods are used to finish and furnish these homes.

The entertainment areas are just that. The owners specifically designed each area to entertain your senses. TV's are large and lay flat against the walls. Spaces are open to enhance family communication and scenic viewing pleasure.

The owners also have a love for cooking and this is evident in the design of the kitchens (especially with focus on the Grandview Hale). All kitchens are fitted with genuine granite countertops, real wood cabinets, and a true focus on making cooking a convenient experience.

Adventure is what brought these owners to the Big Island and perfection is what made them settle in the town above Kona, Holualoa. The Big Island has the best of everything. Almost every climate is attainable here ranging from snow capped mountain tops to tropical rain forests and hot sandy beaches. The owners love diving, and it doesn't get better than this anywhere else in the islands of Hawaii. Hiking too, is a favorite, and these owners have explored many. They have left a suggestion book with details so that you can find children friendly beaches and trails as well as some of the more challenging ones.

Emily Hill purchased this house in 2005

Lovely!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Homes Over Kona. The Tree house was perfect for our family of 7. It was very spacious and everything was provided for. The pool was a big hit for our children and my daughters loved making leis. The only reason a 5 star wasn't given was there wasn't any air conditioning, however we placed fans in the windows at night and it did cool down very quickly by 9 o'clock. Overall we had a pleasant stay.

Very nice stay, great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented to units for multiple families with very young children. This worked great for us, with plenty of room for kids to be kids and some seperstion when needed. We were so busy we did not really get to use pool, but enjoyed the grounds with all the flowers and different trees. The location worked well for us who drove to explore all of the island. We had a great vacation, thank you!

Greatest vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The houses at Homes Over Kona are by far the best vacation homes I've ever stayed in. They're well-appointed, with a great variety of linens, kitchen items, and other amenities. The property itself is beautiful with a number of fantastic views of the shoreline. Both pools and hot tubs are great relaxing spots after a long day driving the island or snorkeling at the reefs within 15 or 20 minutes' drive. I highly recommend this vacation property.

The one downside is the highly inaccessible nature of all the houses. Every house is off a steep driveway (largely unpaved) and must be accessed by stairs. It would be problematic for visitors with vision or mobility disabilities.

Owner's Response: We too lived in that particular home with a toddler. Our homes are simply furnished and have perfect areas for the little guys to play in. The screened-in outdoor lanai is also a great place to enjoy the outdoors without the worry of the little guy "getting away". Thank you for choosing our home and we hope you come to visit us again!

Absolutely the Best!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 17 people (ages 4, teenagers, young adults, parents and grandparents) spent a glorious week in this amazing place. We rented all four houses and had complete privacy - we ate all our meals together in the big house, and spent all our free time there congregating, playing games, etc. Each house is more than adequately stocked with everything you need- lots of towels (kitchen, bath, beach), kitchen supplies, utensils, etc., linens, etc- plus games, some snorkeling/ beach equipment, coolers, etc. The main house is magnificent and a dream come true for large families or groups who like to "hang out" together- there are several areas to eat, lounge, and watch TV (both inside and outside)- the kitchen could accommodate all of us for food meal prep and serving- there is a huge island with stools, lots of counter space, and just about every single thing you would ever need or want . There is nothing missing - and if you need or want anything, (we had to rearrange the sleeping arrangements and wanted some futons), the owners are accessible, available , gracious, and accommodating- both before and during our stay. The property is up the hill away from the beach - not a problem for us, as we had cars and liked the quiet, private, residential feel and had fun exploring the nearby towns; the property is beautifully landscaped with flowers, fruit trees- some of us chose just to stay put, read and rest, and enjoy the beautiful weather while the others did their beach thing. We would suggest arriving during the day if you can- it is quite dark at night and we had difficulty finding the actual property the first time (a call to the owners immediately set us straight!). Also, little toddlers and folks with mobility issues might find the multiple levels, steps, and terrain something to consider- we were able to navigate fine. We have experienced many, many rentals for family vacations over the years - this is the one we can recommend without a moment's hesitation !

Owner's Response: Thank you from the heart for your review!! Hosting a family like yours is what we look forward to! We could tell when we met with you upon check out , they you all had the greatest time!! The medium and smaller sized units like this one are perfect for housing each extended family unit of 4 to 8 persons. Then having the larger unit for group dinners and days at the pool,...sleep overs for the grandkids!! I am so happy you chose Homes Over Kona as your Hawaiian home! We look forward to your next trip!!

Enjoy resort living on hillside slopes at a perfect elevation. Aromatic tropical breezes, spring-like temperatures, and birds singing in this sub-climate are to be sure to tickle your senses. Not too hot, not too cold, Homes Over Kona are located centrally in the historic, quaint, artsy coffee town above Kona called Holualoa. Perfect for a quiet cup of coffee and morning stroll. Only 10 min. away, you will enjoy Kona’s shoreline beaches with every water sport imaginable, downtown shopping or pier fishing, neighboring Captain Cook Town, or kayaking with the Dolphins at Kealakekua Bay. You can enjoy every direction very conveniently within a matter of minutes.

This particular island is famed for the ocean diving and snorkeling along with all the ocean activities you can imagine. White, black, or even green sand beaches can be found here. The only active volcano and endless number of glorious hiking trails await you including the famed Waipio Valley and even a quickie hike just a short drive away. During certain times of the year, you may even experience snow on the caps of Mauna Kea as you capture unforgettable sunsets and stargaze the most glorious night skies imaginable. These are the skies we share with some of the famed observatories available for tours. Only this island can offer such variety in such a compact way. Lucky you, our property is right in the middle of it all.
