Overview

About the property

4 Bdrm 6 1/2 Bath Private Hawaiian Resort 7th night free** Weddings allowed

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. Hale Wailele and Kona are over 100 miles from Kilauea Volcano and very safe. All tourist activities are available for your experience. 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 Keauhou

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

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.

Literally, heaven on earth...

  • 5 of 5

While this review is a bit tardy, the impression we were left with of our time here still remains with us. We arrived just prior to the holidays and we were immediately enveloped into a spacious, elegant and extremely comfortable oasis. From the moment we entered, it was like stepping into a picture postcard, everything and I mean everything, was perfect and taken care of. It had been a difficult year for us due to the loss of several family members, and this vacation gave us time to relax, regenerate and begin to recover. There is something about the tranquility here, the privacy, the feeling of being whisked away from all the crowds and noise, and yet being able to easily join in whenever one wished by simply walking out the door.

Statistically Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular views of Hawaii and ocean? Check. Pristine landscaping? Check. Immaculate setting for relaxation with enough luxury to feel like a resort every day? Check. Fully stocked home to feel like home? Check. Enough space to hold the best wedding ever? Check (I might be a little biased since it was my wedding).

This place had everything, and I mean EVERYthing you could ask for in a dream home much less a vacation rental. The property managers and homeowners are super nice, worldly, interesting, and responsive to our needs. We could not have asked for a better experience bringing our families all over the nation together to stay at this beautiful oasis. If you are second guessing whether you should stay here, just do it. 95% chance you will not regret it.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five adults and two teenagers loved this house. Lots of room to do our own thing and lots of spaces in which we could be comfortably together. It is pure luxury, and whether in sunshine or rainy weather we were always happy to be there.

The koi pond offered a unique pleasure of feeding the fish and relaxing while watching them swim. The infinity pool was wonderful. The house is both architecturally beautiful and beautifully decorated, with lots of comfortable furnishings and attractive art pieces.

We cooked most of our own meals, part of a family bonding process, and this house made it easy. It has all the appliances, dishes, supplies and spices one could possibly ask for in a vacation rental or any home.

The property managers live on the five acre property and were always available, friendly and helpful whenever we needed them.

This week-long stay was in celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. Being able to do this with our family in such a spectacular setting was all we could possibly have hoped for.

Outstanding family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at this spectacular property. As beautiful as the pictures on the website are, the reality is even more lovely. The property is well maintained and has every thing you could possibly need for your vacation. They even provide snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and pool floats. The hospitality shown by the property manager Steve and the owner Karen was very much appreciated.

Big Beautiful House, Wonderful ocean view. Very nice pools.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The house is beautiful, spacious, and so welcoming. It make us not wanting to leave the place, even though Kona has plenty of things to do. We were a party of 9 and stayed for 7 nights. Steve and Heather are great hosts. Well worth it, highly recommended. Thank you

Incredible in every way

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house was incredible in every way. The house is even better than the pictures. The location of the house is spectacular, with gorgeous views and conveniently located. The layout, ambience and furnishings of the house are perfect, with the right mixture of luxury, warmth and privacy. The house has a beautiful infinity pool, hot tub, patio and outdoor study and bar overlooking the ocean. The caretakers, Heather and Steve, were so helpful, informative and friendly. We walked into the house after our long flights and just instantly relaxed. We have stayed at luxury resorts on the Big Island before, and those were definitely lovely, but this was so much better. I could have stayed a month. I highly recommend this accommodation!
