Kohala Coast House Rental Photos and Description

Private 5 Bedroom Oceanfront Luxury Home

The only vacation rental home in Kolea with a totally unobstructed direct view of the beach and ocean! Designed and named Hale Nanea (House of Tranquility) by the home’s architect, this extraordinary oceanfront luxury home in the small gated community of Kolea at Waikoloa offers a tranquil tropical haven where guests can have it all.

Situated on Anaeho’omalu Bay (“A-Bay”), a scarce white sand beach with calm waters, this prime oceanfront location beckons one to shed their stress, relax, and enjoy tropical breezes, sights and sounds!

With irrefutably the best ocean frontage in Kolea, the home is surrounded by a gated entrance, tall lava rock walls and mature landscaping - providing complete privacy for over 4,500 sq. ft. of indoor living area, lanai and mature outdoor gardens.

The beautiful island-themed home opens to a large lanai and spectacular unobstructed views of the beach and ocean. Its spacious indoor area features Italian quarry tile floors (but all bedrooms are carpeted), relaxing living area with vaulted ceiling, separate dining area with a large dining table seating 10. Five well-appointed bedrooms sleep 10 - including 2 huge master suites flowing onto the lanai - and a private bathroom with each bedroom. Each bedroom has bedside tables, dressers, closet and flat screen TV. The additional half-bath allows use by all in a convenient location.

The oceanfront sliding glass walls throughout the home open to a large lanai with a cozy day-bed, cushioned teak lounge furniture, a shaded lounge area, BBQ gazebo center, and private infinity pool and spa.

The large gazebo BBQ center has an Italian quarry-tiled service counter, built-in gas grill, refrigerator, and large teak table with seating for 10. A lockable gate from the lanai leads directly to a private path to the beach. The home includes a 2-car garage with an overflow refrigerator) and assorted pool and beach equipment.

Just steps away, the Kolea Beach Club has a large community pool and spa, children’s sand-bottom pool with waterfall, and a fitness room. Less than a 5-minute walk outside the Kolea gate takes you to the Kings’ Shops and Queens’ Marketplace at Waikoloa Beach Resort – featuring gourmet restaurants, markets, shops (including Starbuck’s!) golf, nightlife – and even a luau. Stroll the nearby “Path of Kings” along the historical ponds in front of the home and learn their rich history from the petroglyphs and posted descriptions.

About Elizabeth

Wine country family-owned home, with another vrbo rental in wine country - contact us for more information on that one.

Elizabeth purchased this house in 2006

Why Elizabeth chose Kohala Coast

After 30 years of Kona vacationing it was finally time to take the plunge and have our own place, and recently decided to share it with vrbo renters. Oceanfront homes with a long white sand beach and easy ocean access are very rare!

What makes this house unique

Incredible, jaw-dropping views of the beach, ocean, swaying palms, tropical breezes - what more do you need?

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We are still coming down from the high of our beautiful Hawaiian vacation at the "House of Tranquility". We all had the best time and absolutely loved the house. It was so beautiful with the view of the lagoon and ocean from the pool and jacuzzi. The house was laid out so well too with such generous sized bedrooms.”

You will love staying in this house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 adults (four in our 50s, six in their 20s) stayed for one week in early December 2015. The house and its location are fabulous. Waikoloa Resort is a fairly congested area and we were not planning on staying there for that reason. However, we saw the pictures of House of Tranquility and its location on Google Earth and decided to give it a try. The house is a private enclave dropped into a vibrant vacation community. Whether we were in the house, outside on the lanai or in the pool, it was very private. The house has an unobstructed view of the beach and ocean (great sunsets), with no pathways in front of the house. It's a short walk to the beach. Although it's next door to the shared beach club (for the other homes and townhomes) we did not hear any noise. Lava walls and landscaping work well for privacy. The home is within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and the Las Vegas-like Hilton Hotel, for which you receive pool passes. Although the main pool with slides, etc. was under construction while we were there, we enjoyed seeing the dolphins and riding the monorail trolley and boats. The home is very comfortable, with plenty of space in the living areas and dining areas (indoor and out). The kitchen is well-equipped with a variety of spices, oils, condiments, etc. left by prior guests and all the pots and pans, dishes, glassware, etc. you need. The on-site property manager who welcomed us to the home was friendly and responsive to our needs during the week. My only suggestion would be to have the home stocked with more paper towels and toilet tissue, rather than having to call to request these items when needed. The two master suites are huge, with plenty of closet space, large bathroom and outdoor shower. The other three bedrooms are smaller, but adequate in size for two adults. The air conditioning works well (not always the case in other houses we've rented). We recommend the lovely House of Tranquility and hope to return.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review, and we couldn’t agree with you more! While its Waikoloa location does suggest a lot of activity, it simply allows for the ease of a lovely short walk to 5 restaurants (including Roy’s) and nightlife options without having to drive – plus a gourmet market, shops, and even a Starbuck’s, all while enjoying complete quiet and privacy while on the property. Oh, and a myriad of beach and ocean-activity options are available right in A-Bay where the house sits!

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is a wonderful place to reconnect and unwind. We planned a 50th anniversary celebration for my in-laws at the House of Tranquility and everything we experienced exceeded our expectations. Once our party of ten got to the house our cares melted away. The staff greeting was exceptional and made us feel like ohana - both valued and included - immediately. We have 12 and 8 year old girls who toured the house, selected their bedroom, donned their swimsuits, and were in the wonderful infinity pool in less than seven minutes (they looked like prunes by the end of the week as they seldom left the water) while the rest of us were guided throughout the spacious and beautiful home and informed of its extensive amenities. The staff is wonderfully thoughtful, helpful, and checked up on us regularly, answering several questions and requests promptly and with grace.

We enjoyed the house so much we rarely left Kolea. We passed the time by walking the beautiful beach (no picture does it justice), playing in the water, and exploring the shopping at nearby King's and Queen's Markets. My only complaint is that there is not a decent shave ice to be had in the area...but why did I spend that much time at the rental counter if I didn't mind a short trip to "Original Big Island Shave Ice Co." in Kawaihae (maybe not so short...but worth the trip, really!)

Back to the house: The kitchen is exceptionally well appointed. But we never used the indoor dining table, choosing instead to eat around the huge round table under the gazebo on the lanai/patio. It was so relaxing it was hard to get back up to walk the five steps to get back into the pool. The bedrooms are all very well appointed and comfortable, and the family room is especially comfortable after dark. No matter the time of day, or the agenda, the ten of us were comfortable and never felt crowded. The house is amazing.

Most pleasant discoveries: A stack of high quality, plush beach towels as tall as my 8 year old and an always-shaded-daybed on the lanai (great for napping in ocean breezes)

The House of Tranquility is one of the best vacation locations we have ever experienced and will be the standard by which all future experiences will be judged.

Spectacular vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better place for a tropical vacation. The location is perfect, just enough back from the beach to get some great palms in the foregrounds for sunset pictures. I've never been anywhere that has such gorgeous sunsets every night. The house is fantastic. Beautifully furnished with lots of indoor and outdoor spaces, and the indoor spaces all open up to the outdoors. We had eight people in our group and the house swallowed us up - we never felt crowded. The kids loved the pool and the adults loved star gazing in the hot tub at night. The location is great for easy access to shops and restaurants (although we did all our cooking at the house). All of this made for the best family vacation we've ever had!

Paradise Found!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house in the perfect location! We were so fortunate to stay at the House of Tranquility for a week for our 10 year anniversary. We had a group of 5 couples and the house worked great for us. The views are amazing! We spent much of our time on the lanai. The pool, hot tub and outdoor kitchen were so great. Everyone that we worked with was so responsive, especially Caroline! She was awesome! We enjoyed walking over to Lava, Lava Beach Club for dinner and also to the Hilton. Another highlight for us was getting malasadas from Tex's drive inn. We loved them so much we went back 2 more times! So good! What an amazing piece of paradise this house is. We hope to come back! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Vacation at its BEST!!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding place!! Enjoyed every day we were there during this week and into 4th of July!! The views/sunsets/location/atmosphere was unmatched by anything we have done in vacationing so far. Close to all shopping and the Marriott Luau night on Wednesday night. Added bonus was watching July 4th fireworks display outside at the Lanai!! Super way to end our first week in the islands at this location.

Amenities are top notch and outdoor kitchen and eating area was used so frequently.

Best place ever!! We will be back!!

House of Tranquility!!! Is the BEST.

Lovely, lovely home. Our Big happy family enjoyed this home of all the homes we have stayed in, Kolea and Mana Lani. This was by far our favorite. The views from the pool are lovely. The house felt like home and was very comfortable. Every amenity was found.

Thank you for sharing your home. We hope to return.
