SAVE AN ADDITIONAL 5-10%: ASK US HOW

Our stunning Hawaiian Paradise home is located just a few blocks from the waterfront village of Kona, Hawaii in a private gated community of luxury homes. With a nearly constant year around temperature in the 80s, and a cool ocean breeze, this custom Hawaiian home is as tropical as you can get. Overlooking the crashing waves on the lava and sandy beach coast, the home features a designer infinity pool with two waterfalls, a sandy bottom wading pool, huge lanais, and two courtyard ponds with their own waterfalls in a 'Jurassic' garden setting. There is even a private 'island' dining patio next to the waterfall overlooking the dramatic Kona surf. The house comes fully furnished with a designer dream kitchen, open air oceanfront dining room, kitchen bar, living room, entertainment room, an unbelievable Master Suite with panoramic ocean views, a pampered oceanview study, two Tropical Guest Suites, each with their own separate entrance and opening onto the lush courtyard and waterfalls, and a separate Ohana Cottage Suite with its own kitchen, kitchen bar, sitting area and lanai. The master suite comes with its own private whale watching tower! The house sleeps eight, two in each suite plus futons for children.

'HALE KONA A'EKAI' is a unique oceanfront private custom home meaning 'the home by the wash of the sea'. It was intricately designed to capture the essence of waterfront Hawaiian living. Thatched ceilings, open walls, louvered teak windows, ten foot teak doors, endless lanais, and tropical landscaping, all help to capture the spirit of the islands. The house is exquisitely detailed with imported teak, bamboo, marble, granite, and quartzite throughout. The home has been featured in several magazines. The grounds are equally impressive with rare tropical flowers and palms, four waterfalls and a stunningly impressive bathing pool with an infinity edge. A stairway bridge takes you across to the island pedestal where you can lavish in a dinner surrounded by water with simultaneous views of the sunset, waterfalls and the crash of the waves! Enchanting, magical and romantic--there is so much more to describe---but you must see it for yourself! Unsurpassed luxury. Come stay with us and experience the mystique and beauty of the Big Island!

MAIN HOUSE LIVING AREA: Large open oceanfront living area includes: KITCHEN: Teakwood and solid granite dream kitchen with all the appliances including separate ice maker, warming drawer, vegetable sink, double ovens, triple stove. LIVING ROOM: Bamboo furniture adds to the tropical feel of the high ceiling open living area which extends out onto the Lanai. There is an area to sit and enjoy the ocean views and the infinity pool, a more private area to engage in conversation, and an entertainment area to enjoy the surround sounds of TV, a movie, or relaxing music. DINING: Enjoy the sunset while sipping Mai Tais on the whale watch tower. Don't forget to look for the 'green flash!' Dine at the six seat bamboo dining table that borders the lanai with open air ocean views, sit for pupus (appetizers) at the granite bar, or take dinner out to one of the ocean side teak tables to enjoy the sound of the dramatic nearby surf while dining under the bright Kona stars. The experience is mystical!

SUITES OF THE HOUSE:

OCEANFRONT MASTER SUITE:(sleeps 2+ in sheer luxury!)

Stunning oceanfront views from all rooms includes: Master Suite: Entire spacious second floor with private outside entry, wrap around lanais, private sitting area overlooking pool and surf, private sitting area overlooking lush gardens, private whale watch tower.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your fantastic home. After years of studying architecture, it was wonderful

to finally see a home that the great architects said how a home should be built but never quite accomplished it.

Form follows function, living within the surrounding environment was finally accomplished. I understand

your husband designed and built this home and I’d like to give him praise. It’s no wonder everybody LOVES

this home, it’s at the core of the human soul. I’d love to see his other designs some day but I don’t think

any one could out match this one. I am so thankful there was an opening for us to see this work of art.

God granted me a “bucket list” blessing. Thank you,

Family Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my family vacationed in Sheree's home. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the OPEN house! It's perfect for multiple families to stay together, and offers plenty of space if you want some privacy. The location is ideal for walking into town. Some of us even snorkeled to Kona.

Everyone loved the pool and there is a keiki beach a few houses away which was perfect for my 2yr old grandson.

It's in a quiet beautiful gated community.

We enjoyed the 4th of July Parade up the street and watching the fireworks from the oceanside of the house.

I'm sure we'll be booking this house again! We viewed Sheree's other homes, and they are just as amazing. Hoping to get to Lake Powell for 4th of July one year!!!

Awesome Hawaiian Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderful spot in Kona for my family. And we have already booked our third trip for next year! This home is perfect for our family of two children and two grandparents in addition to my husband and myself. It has enough room for all of us and has separate areas to allow for time alone if needed! There is plenty of space and we love the master suite that you can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. The pool is perfect for my two sons and is so close to the tide pools and beach that they are able to experience both. The location is safe and quiet, except for the music on Friday and Saturday nights that you can hear from the adjacent fields. It is close enough to the town and the Kona pier that you could walk if you wanted or take a 5 minute drive. Staying on this side of the pier has way less traffic than the other side of the pier which we prefer. The house is absolutely perfect and we just love it!

80TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! TIMES A MILLION DOESN'T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THIS FABULOUS HOME. MY HUSBAND AND I DECIDED TO TAKE OUR CHILDREN AND SPOUSES TO THE BIG ISLAND FOR HIS 80TH BIRTHDAY. THIS HOME IS BEYOND FABULOUS. WE WANTED ALL OF US UNDER ONE ROOF BUT WITH INDIVIDUAL PRIVACY AS WELL. THE SUITE OVER THE GARAGE, THE JACK AND JILL BEDROOMS AND THE MASTER BEDROOM OVER THE MAIN HOUSE WAS PERFECT. WE WERE ALL TOGETHER BUT NOT ON TOP OF ONE ANOTHER. THE HOUSE IS TO DIE FOR. ONE COULD NOT WANT FOR ANYTHING MORE. THE MAIN HOUSE IS OPEN TO THE OCEAN AND POOL AREA. OH THE POOL, MARVELOUS TO SAY THE LEAST. THE KITCHEN IS WELL EQUIPPED AND WONDERFUL TO COOK IN. I ONLY COOKED ONE BREAKFAST, AS THE KIDS DID ALL THE COOKING AND BBQ. WE ALL HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME IN THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED THAT IS FOR SURE. SHEREE' AND HER STAFF WERE WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH AND KEPT IN TOUCH ALONG THE WAY AND DURING OUR STAY. DID I MENTION THE MASTER QUARTERS (YES QUARTERS AS IT HAS AN OFFICE, BEDROOM AND BATHROOM AND BALCONY) ALSO HAD AN OUTSIDE SHOWER. DAD AND I LOVED THAT FEATURE. YEP HAVING A SHOWER WHILE YOU LOOK OUT AT THE BEAUTIFUL OCEAN. THE OWNERS TRULY DESIGNED THIS HOME FOR PRIVACY AND TOGETHERNESS WITH STYLE, COMFORT AND SUCH A GORGEOUS VIEW. I LOVED THE POOL AS I'M ONLY 4'11" AND THE 4' POOL WAS GREAT FOR ME. WE ALL ENJOYED ALL ASPECTS OF THE HOME AND WISH WE COULD HAVE STAYED LONGER. AS A CLOSE JUST ADD ALL THE GREAT REVIEWS FROM EVERYONE ELSE AND YOU HAVE WHAT A FANTASTIC HOME THIS IS. THANKS SHEREE' AND STAFF FOR BIRTHDAY WE ALL WILL REMEMBER. DON'T MISS OUT ON STAYING AT THIS FABULOUS HOME. YES, HOME, IT IS MORE THAN A RENTAL HOUSE.

Golden Wedding Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had an unforgettable two weeks with family and friends. The house is so well designed and is cooled with fans and balmy breezes and large opening doors to the infinity pool and wonderful areas for evening drinks watching the sunsets. The house is in a secure gated compound. Chef Paul created a wonderful dinner for our friends and relations from around the world. All generations enjoyed the pool. Some days we relaxed by the pool and we also went sightseeing and to downtown Kona.

50th B-Day Trip

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic stay we had for my 50th B-Day. Sheree was so helpful getting the arrangements made before hand, and Lorena was such a terrific welcoming hostess. This place is beyond amazing. We ended up dumping most of our activity plans so we could bask in the luxury of the house and its gardens, pool, ocean views and cool breezes. Oh, and the incredible sunsets topped off each day. Totally relaxed me and made some great memories for the whole family.
