4 Bedroom 6 1/2 Bath Private Hawaiian Resort 7th night free**
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.

Karen Hill purchased this Estate in 2010
Why Karen Hill chose Honalo
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!)
What makes this Estate unique
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 Amazing Sunsets 18' vaulted ceilings Indoor- outdoor flow- we rarely close the doors

The pictures don’t give the property justice. It is incredible.
The house has everything that you can imagine. Once you arrive you won’t want or need to leave. It is truly a home away from home. The property managers, Heather and Steve, are so down to earth and extremely accommodating. We will be back again.
Amazing! It was EVERYTHING we wanted for our wedding
This was our first stay at Hale Wailele and I would highly recommend choosing this location for your stay at Kona. We hosted our wedding here and everything turned out more beautiful than we could have imagined. Both the property managers Steven & Karen are very helpful and are very open to contact should you have any questions about the property as there is so much within the property. The property is quite big, so definitely recommend going in a group to make the house feel more full. Great location to host events and a laid back BBQ.
Incredible and comfortable home
This was a really incredible home and a great place for a large family group to get together. We loved the indoor-outdoor style, the pools, and the view. It's well stocked with everything you need for relaxing, cooking, and hanging out, plus the property managers throw in plenty of extras like snacks for kids, etc. I hope we can come back and stay again sometime!
Unforgettable Wedding & Family Vacation
We had an amazing time at Hale Wailele! Once you pass through the front doors this house is absolutely breathtaking. We got married a few days into our stay and even though it rained a little everything went absolutely perfectly! Sam at The Fish Hopper was our caterer an he was outstanding to work with. The rest of our week was spent outside on the lanai no matter what the weather. The pool and hot tub was definitely a highlight for everyone. Each room is beautiful and its own escape if you need some time away from your group. Heather and Steve were extremely hospitable, and we loved visiting with them. They provided a warm welcome and some Hawaiian goodies for our enjoyment. We're already talking about our next visit!
Stunning and Relaxing
I was expecting beautiful with spectacular views given the reviews. What we got was stunningly beautiful, spectacular views, and a comfortable welcoming environment. It felt like it could be “ home” away from home. Eight of us stayed here for 5 days. We couldn’t explore the island as much as planned because of inclimate weather, however, we were able to enjoy a reunion of friends along with celebrations of birthdays at Hale Wailele. We will stay here again!
( the only issue we had was that the Wi_Fi and/or internet wasn’t consistent. Hopefully that will be an easy fix for Karen).
Perfect wedding week
My family recently stayed at Hale Wailele for my wedding, and I can't imagine a more perfect venue for the wedding or a better place to stay for the week! The photos do not do it justice, it is an incredible property. The owner & caretakers are amazing, they answer questions quickly while you are making your arrangements and once you arrive go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful week. I would absolutely recommend Hale Wailele to anyone and everyone, and we definitely plan on going back!
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.
