From its envious position at a cool elevation of 1000 feet on the slopes of Mount Hualalai, to its 270 degree panoramic views of Keauhou Bay and miles of the Kona coastline, this secluded luxury estate on 5 fenced and gated acres is surrounded by lush, tropical foliage. It has been said that this architecturally significant residence boasts the most amazing views available on the Big Island. The residence was also featured on the cover of Island Home magazine. Privacy and security are assured from the moment you enter the gate and proceed down the sweeping, palm tree lined drive to the main residence.
Upon entry to Hale Wailele you are greeted by magnificent koi ponds and the sound of waterfalls in your private courtyard.
MAIN HOUSE LIVING AREA: The Great Room features 18 foot vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan that encompasses a gourmet kitchen and dining/living areas. The interiors have been professionally designed and offer a luxurious yet comfortable respite. Floor to ceiling pocket doors open onto the lanais to bring the outdoors in. The gourmet kitchen will be the envy of any chef and is equipped to host parties large or small. The kitchen features a large island and a handy breakfast bar where guests can gather and chat with the chef of the party. Adjacent to the kitchen is an intimate media room and an open air tropical bar perfect for pre-dinner cocktails.
OUTDOOR LIVING AREA: Over 2000 square feet of Honed Beaumaniere French Limestone floors (imported from France by the original owners) flow seamlessly around the home. Both covered and open air patios feature plush chaise lounges and resort style furnishings surrounding the custom infinity edge pool and spa. This area is perfect for enjoying the beautiful Kona sunsets while sipping a tropical cocktail. The fun does not end after the sun sets as the area magically comes to life with the lighting of the tiki torches. Arrange your own private Luau complete with Hula lessons and fire dancers. Ideal location for intimate weddings.
SUITES OF THE HOUSE: The house is comprised of 3 separate pavilions which are connected via Honed Beaumaniere French Limestone walkways. The King Master Suite with his and her bathrooms is housed independently in pavilion 1. Pavilion 2 houses the main living area as well as two additional King bedded suites. Pavilion 3 houses the 4th King bedded suite (aka Ohana).
All of the suites are equipped with private bathrooms, televisions as well as their own outdoor lounge areas. It is rare to find a vacation rental where up to 4 couples can retreat to their own private spaces.
There is no need for air conditioning in this home as the near constant trade winds fan a delightful gentle breeze over the property. If you are looking for absolute luxury in a breathtaking setting than this Hawaiian vacation rental has it all. You will never tire of gazing at the magnificent views and swaying palm trees while enjoying the cool tropical breeze.
If you can tear yourself away from this property the Kona coastline is waiting to be explored.

The architect who designed this house is known as the "frank Lloyd Wright" of Hawaii. His designs all fit seamlessly into the landscape as does Hale Wailele and its beautiful separation of areas allowing for privacy and yet community when desired. The dramatic entrance, sweeping views, and a his and her bathroom in the master sealed the deal (as did the Realtor's Mai Tai's!)
On 5 acres so it feels secluded yet so close to everything
4 bedrooms all with separate outside areas for privacy and seclusion
Incredible sweeping views of the Kona Coastline
18' vaulted ceilings
Indoor- outdoor flow- we rarely close the doors
What an amazing property, with the most beautiful view overlooking the ocean and bay. Very well appointed, with anything you could possibly need. We were greeted by Heather and Steve, the wonderful caretakers that live next door and they were very helpful and responsive when we had questions. The house was beyond our expectations, beautifully decorated and elegant but completely comfortable with lots of room to spread out. We loved the open air concept of the home, we never felt cooped up and could enjoy the lovely Hawaiian weather. Sitting outside overlooking the bay at sunset was one of our favorite times of day. There was so much to see on the Big Island, but this incredible home made it hard to leave!
I am so happy I stumbled upon Hale Wailele. I was looking for a place to host my wedding and reception and this place was absolutely perfect! We rented the house for 7 nights total and had our wedding and reception here as well. During our stay, we had all our family and friends over who had traveled to the island the celebrate with us and it was nice being able to invite them over to a house rather than trying to plan a place to meet with everyone elsewhere if we had stayed at a hotel. All the amenities we had at the estate were amazing too, there's tons of spices and foods left over from previous guests as well as any kitchen appliance and supply you can think of. For our wedding, it was an incredible day. Everything looked so amazing and our guests were raving about the house the entire week! We were able to fit about 80 guests here and they fit perfectly. Once again, this is an amazing place to stay and I would highly, highly recommend this for a wedding or even just as a place to stay with your family and friends for the week!
Our family vacation at the Hale Wailele was one of the most memorable times in our lives. Memories were made forever! Hale Wailele will take your breath away as you arrive through the special gates. The home is spectacular. For a family of ten people, it was perfect. The rooms are gorgeous and very private, too. The open concept welcomes you into the very essence of a Hawaiian experience. The view over Kona is awe inspiring. The patio, Tiki bar, and all of the special furnishings provide a wonderful, relaxing feeling at all times of the day--from the morning sunrise to the evening sunset--so dreamy! We cannot thank Steve and Heather for their wonderful hospitality. It was such a pleasure to meet them. Upon arrival to the Hale Wailele, we were treated to wine and cheese and champagne, too, as well as gifts for our grandchildren. Above and beyond a very special gesture it was. The Johnson Family will forever remember the Hale Wailele! Our grandsons will never forget the Koi fish and having the opportunity to feed them each day. Thank you for sharing this home with us.

12 of us went to Hale Wailele for my fathers 75 birthday. It was truly amazing! An absolute gem!!! This beautiful property was very luxurious with all the amenities and more then you could need. We all had plenty of space to enjoy our family and plenty of quiet areas when need. The area we found was ideal. so many incredible adventures near by. In fact we will have to return again to see other areas of the island. We found so much to keep us busy near the house we didn't stray too far. Our kids 6 and 8 had the time of their lives. Fun boogie boarding, snorkeling, the infinity pool and the GECKOS! They loved the nature there. What was great for me is I could relax. I felt comfortable letting them roam, knowing they were safe. The property managers were wonderful. They live up the hill. They made sure we had everything we needed, fresh fruit from the trees, plenty of great ideas on what to do and more. The house itself was absolutely beautiful. It sits at 1000 ft. on the hill and was built with a large open floor plan. Large glass doors open up the entire house to the view of the infinity pool and ocean so you can take advantage of the trade winds and never need air conditioning. Yet we were never cold. We were all very comfortable.
I really can not say enough about this beautiful and peaceful place! I couldn't of asked for a greater vacation with my family. Krista Squibb
Wow! What a beautiful unique home in paradise! Indoor outdoor living at its finest! The koi ponds were beautiful and intertaining for the kids! They loved being able to feed the koi fish everyday. The pool and hot tub were our families favorite place to relax and swim!! The view from the infinity pool was to die for!!! I couldn't stop taking pictures the entire trip.. We diffently will return to this one of a kind property. Thank you to Steve and Heather for all their wonderful suggestions and for the extra special touches that made our stay so memorable!!!! Thank you again!! Joan and Jess
This house is like a palace. Each bedroom is its own self-contained master with beautiful decor. The kitchen is huge and superbly equipped. But we spent all our time out on the decks in the comfy chairs, entranced by the view over the Kona coast. I wish we could have spent more days at Hale Wailele. We were sad to leave.
Quiet and secluded on 5 acres and yet conveniently located above Kailua Kona town, 5 minutes to Keauhou shopping center and Kona Country Club. Charming villages of Captain Cook and Kealekekua are within an easy 15 minute drive. See video under Owner info tab.
