Overview

Keauhou Estate Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom 6 1/2 Bath Private Hawaiian Resort

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 Kona Coast

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

A Once in a Lifetime Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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.

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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

Gorgeous house. Fantastic view. Superb hospitality on the part of the owners and the caretakers.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Happy 65th

  • 5 of 5

I have rented homes through vrbo for years but this home, by far, exceeded all my expectations! Your entry through beautiful Asian inspired double doors leads past koi pods and out to a breathtaking view, pool and hot tub. Steve and Heather (managers) met our families and shared all the info on the home. The photos, other reviews say it all but what I can add is that it was my best birthday ever with my children and grandchildren. The owners have shared amenities beautiful art work, a pantry full of food and everything you could possibly need for an amazing vacation.

Life is not a dress rehearsal so book this house and prepare to be amazed! Thank you Karen and Paul!

Notes:
Hale Wailele is home to a number of little green Geckos very similar to the “Geico Insurance Gecko” seen in TV commercials. These Hawaiian Geckos, harmless to humans, are very good at hunting and controlling insects and do a lot less talking than their “Gieco” counter-parts with the British accent. A little known fact is that this Hawaiian Gecko was the alternate pick for Hawaii State mascot for 3 consecutive years. Lots of guests, especially kids, find these little guys really cute with their little suction cups for toes on their feet. Hale Wailele uses a nationally well known professional pest control service that specifically treats for Mosquitoes, on regular basis, which are so common in the tropics. Additionally Hale Wailele provides some personal insect repellent for an added layer of protection if guests so desire, as it is very difficult to control these “Mozzies” (as we call them), 100%. Some guests have a personal preference of insect repellent that they may choose to use.
