|Minimum Stay||5 - 10 nights|
Transcend paradise with our absolute oceanfront 3 story home located only blocks to Kailua-Kona town and within a guarded gated community of luxury estates. Your private oceanfront setting overlooks rich lava, white sands, crashing waves and Hawaii's famous romantic sunsets.
Ke’ala Ho’omaika’i (The Blessed Path) was artisan designed to offer you 180 degrees of ocean front shoreline, while relaxing in 7,000+ square feet of elegant living space. When you arrive and open your mahogany entry gates you will walk into a tropical meditation garden. A gentile cascading waterfall draws you along the meandering path and over the pond to the grand entrance. Even before entering your home the stunning view of the Pacific Ocean beyond the disappearing walls takes your breath away. Throughout your stay the beautiful Pacific Ocean will be the backdrop for all of your memories.
As you walk through the home you will be surrounded by commissioned art work done by several local artists. The entryway inlayed Monstera Leaves are by artist Alex Gupta and will lead you to the open great room / gathering area and beyond to the covered lanai, infinity pool and ocean. The gathering area offers a baby grand piano and comfortable seating for all.
Adjacent to the great room is your chef designed kitchen with a generous bar sink island for dining or serving. Included is a Wolf six burner stove/plus griddle and two ovens; the kitchen also offers a built in drawer microwave, two dishwashers, two full size sub-zero degrees refrigerator and freezer with ice-maker. Hand carved from granite and travertine tile is an original tropical floral design on the wall above the range. A more extensive list of amenities is listed below.
The main home is comprised of 3 master bedrooms and four baths. In addition there is an attached Ohana Suite (Hawaiian for Family Suite) we have named Hale Honu (Turtle House) on the ground level; to the left of the entry.
Your main three bedrooms are accessed by the grand spiral staircase. The second floor hosts two bedroom en suites:
Aloha Suite is oceanfront with a private furnished covered lanai and a full size hot tub overlooking the ocean. The King Size Tempurpedic bed faces the azure blue waves. Aloha Suite has another Gupta work of art: inlayed glass etched leaves under the bathtub and 'growing' up the shower walls. An impressive piece of art that has been displayed in both national and international publications.
From the stair case there is a covered outdoor pathway with magnificent views of Mount Hualalai leading to Dolphin Suite.
Dolphin Suite has a king size bed in a private tropical retreat setting. Your lounging lanai has a shoreline view looking north for what seems like forever. Ensuite shower. It also includes a flat screen TV with DVD player, iPod dock, ceiling fan, desk and office supplies.
On the third floor we proudly present:
Lanihau (Heavenly Hibiscus) offering an authentic 1800s converted to a king size Chinese Wedding Bed (originally owned by Bart Ward of Batman and Robin fame) looking out to the ocean on three sides, you are literally surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Pacific Ocean! The suite has two lanais: The oceanfront lanai has a full size backgammon table with breathtaking views up and down the coast as if perched in a crows nest. The mauka (mountain) view lanai is the ideal location to enjoy that first sip of Kona coffee while sharing in the view of the sun rising above the mountains each morning. There is also a twin size day bed for lounging, flat screen TV, exercise bike, desk, printer, office supplies, ceiling fan, small refrigerator, sink and library. This suite is an open air suite with no solid door for entry off of the stair case... similar to a loft but more private (people can not see in from below).
Hale Honu (Turtle House) which is located off of the entry way and to the right of the great room, a very private suite with it's own second entrance from the meditation garden. This Oceanfront Suite has a private covered lani and tropical garden, complete with large bamboo swing to while away the hours. Your king size bed faces directly to the ocean. There is a granite petite kitchenette with a small refrigerator and microwave. This suite has an artfully designed wheel chair accessible shower, flat screen TV, ipod dock, walk in closet and ceiling fan.
Sit on any one of the four ocean front lanais and be entertained by the spinner dolphins, whales and turtles. These are just some of the many visitors that on any given day may find their way to the ocean just steps away from your vacation paradise.
The grand lanai off of the great room has a large covered area gently leading to the open sunning area and ocean front infinity swimming pool. The ocean is just steps beyond. The area is large enough for an event with the intimacy of a family gathering.
Ke’ala Ho’omaika’i is the most northern home in this gated community offering the only completely unobstructed northern coastline view. All coastline in Hawaii is given respect as sacred ground, but the area directly in front of your home is considered to be the most revered. Ka'ma'aina (local community) honor their ancestors at this location. Christenings, Proposals, and Wedding Ceremonies take place on the shoreline adjacent to your home. This spot is also considered one of the best shore diving locations in the world.
Just a few steps away is the community park that offers Olympic size pool, indoor sports center, tennis courts, pickle ball, horseshoes, soccer and baseball fields, a community garden walking track and an outdoor roller rink.
You are just a short stroll to a sandy waveless beach.
Just a two minute drive is the International Market Place and the Kona Brewery. The International Market Place offers local gifts, artwork and cuisine. Kona Brewery is the home of the world renown island brews.
The village of Kailua-Kona is a half mile away where the Pier is the center of the towns activities. The cruise ships, snorkeling and dinner cruises, the historic home of King Kamehameha, and the Queen's Palace are all in this locale.

Absolutely stunning vacation home. We awoke every morning to the sunrise over the beautiful scenic horizon that could be seen in a panoramic view from EVERY bedroom in the house. Beautifully kept and maintained. We constantly felt safe with the security guard on rounds every couple of hours and felt our own sort of peaceful seclusion even though we were in a neighborhood. It was the most serene piece of the island with our own little cove that you could swim around in and snorkel for a small little view of some of the colorful fish. The water was CRYSTAL clear and a little tide pool stayed protected near the house that was perfect for a small dip if you don't want to climb over the lava rocks. All of the rooms had bathrooms and laundry areas and the spa showers were PHENOMENAL for rinsing off after a long day at the beach. I absolutely can't wait to return!
This house and the surrounding property were an absolute dream come true. The house was beautifully decorated and furnished, and the view was unbelievable. The maintenance staff was courteous and considerate of our schedule. The place was spotless. After less than a week visiting, I was ready to move in. If you are looking for the perfect spot for an unforgettable dream vacation. This is definitely it. Even the locals visiting the nearby beach were friendly. Two showed us a nearby underwater cave that I swam through. Amazing experience. Amazing property. Don't miss your opportunity to stay here.
The condition of the estate was even better than we could have imagined. The pantry and refrigerators had condiments, etc., even though we did our own grocery shopping, it was nice to have those extra necessities there if needed (which they were…who buys steak sauce on vacation?).
Every room had fresh linens and extra towels folded for use. All the bathrooms and each of the washer & dryer units were convenient and worked perfectly. This was nice because we found ourselves washing a lot of laundry between trips from the pool or the ocean, which was just a few steps away from the house.
We grilled dinner 3 times during our 7-day stay using the propane grill on the back patio, which was large enough to cook steaks, burgers, bratwursts & chicken for 6 people – all in one session! I fired the grill up with ease – I’m no expert, but it was pretty simple to start a propane grill. I felt like Gordon Ramsay!
The exquisite furniture, granite counter tops, lovely floors, ceiling fans and table tops were polished and immaculate. There were two high-powered dishwashers, so it was extremely convenient to run alternating cycles…we never ran out of glasses or silverware!
The air-conditioning worked and was there if needed, but even though we stayed during the hottest time of the year (the last week in August), we did not need it once. It was warm outside, but the house is designed in such a way that there is a constant ocean breeze blowing through – all of the downstairs walls are like screened-in windows, so there was ongoing air flow. Additionally, there are strong fans in every room to keep you cool. I seriously wandered to bed every single night and fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. It felt like the most comfortable bed on Earth.
Our week was perfect at this absolutely GORGEOUS Oceanfront Estate. It was honestly the most magical and memorable experience we have had on a vacation. This place had everything we needed and more. We have traveled all around the globe and this estate is absolutely one of my TOP 10 Most Elegant Vacation Rentals in the World! If we could come here every year we would. I think we just might!
We were a group of 3 couples looking for an unforgettable experience…and we found it here! This estate is awe-inspiring from the moment you walk through front gate. The pictures for this estate are absolutely breath-taking, but honestly, they cannot even capture the beauty of this home. Trying to do so would be like trying to take a picture of the stars with a 5mp camera phone. If you are looking for the most romantic & accommodating estate in Hawaii, then you are looking at the right one!
During our stay, we managed plenty of sight-seeing, but often times we found it difficult to actually leave the estate because we would just get lost for a few hours relaxing in the amazing pool with an ocean-front view. This “infinity” pool is magnificent and provides a nearly surreal image during sunset – the sunlight retreating beneath the horizon dances perfectly across the ocean and atop the pool!
Every room in the house is a designer masterpiece. While we spent most of our time in the kitchen, or on the back patio, it was frequent too that we found ourselves just hanging out late into the night playing card games indoors or on a balcony. The bedrooms themselves are like small houses, each with their own niche lounge area, whether it be an upstairs balcony, a hot tub overlooking the ocean, or a private garden patio with quick access to the ocean.
The residence is at the very end of a gated, private community and the security team is well-mannered and respectful; and with their regular patrols, we always felt secure, even on the nights we stayed up until sunrise. We'll definitely stay here again!
Great location, very nice house, very clean, and Adeline was great to work with. Very responsive (and quick) with the one question I had during the week. Would highly recommend!
My wife and I and another couple rented the home over Labor Day week. The very sweet lady who owns the home greeted us upon arrival and gave us a full tour of the home, where things were and how everything worked.
The home was in tip top condition and everything was cleaned to perfection. Even though it was a bit warm that week even by Hawaiian standards, with the windows open the tradewinds kept the house cool and comfortable.
The amenities were great! The pool was heated and quite comfortable. We used the outdoor grill almost nightly and enjoyed outside dinners watching the sun set over the ocean. Lots of pool and ocean toys and gear. By law, Hawaiians are allowed access to all beachfront so there is a walkway between the home and the beach. However, we saw maybe 5 people all week.
Security at the complex was quite comforting. Not only was there a guard gate, the guards came by continually, day and night foot patrolling the area. The house is amazingly appointed, all the furnishings are top of the line and the artwork and antiques made you feel you were among royalty. I was surprised somebody said the house was "tired". That could not be further from the truth. The home and everything about it was immaculate. All the bedrooms were amazing, even the ones on the back of the home had stunning views of the ocean. Rainfall showers with views out to the ocean, a jacuzzi on the second floor patio, workout equipment, the list goes on and on.
The front three bedrooms all have floor to ceiling glass doors facing out to the most amazing view of the ocean I've ever seen this side of Bora Bora. My wife fell in love with the side lanai with the wooden porch swing. She stayed out there for hours reading, dozing and just enjoying the tranquility of this amazing home.
It was a very short hop to town. We have always enjoyed visiting Kona but quite frankly, every time we went to town we wanted to hurry back to our new "home". There were two grocery stores a couple minutes away which made staying in and enjoying leisurely meals at the home a breeze.
I would recommend this incredible home to anybody. Celebrities frequently rent this home and evidently are multiple time renters. I can understand why. This home is the most relaxing vacation getaway I've ever had the privilege to enjoy, and my wife and I have traveled the world. We absolutely hated to leave this amazing little piece of paradise. Best holiday we've ever had!
