Palauna Hale is a five bedroom five and one half bath custom home centrally located in the quaint town of Kailua-Kona. The house sits on six acres of agricultural land in the private expansive subdivision of Ho'omalu Estates (the subdivision is gated as well as the property).
The 4200 square foot home features sweeping views of the mountain, ocean, and lush tropical gardens. Relax and grill on the open lanais or take a swim in the 75 foot saline swimming pool while watching a beautiful Hawaiian sunset over the ocean.
The Palauna Hale is the perfect home for gathering and entertaining. A large family or group of friends will appreciate the space and privacy our home has to offer. Directly located off of the pool lanai are two beautiful master suites with Jacuzzi tubs, walk-in closets and sunset views. Additionally, there are three spacious bedrooms suites located on the mountain side of the house, each with private entrances off of the interior courtyard.
Located minutes from the best snorkeling beach on the island, a 36-hole world-class golf course, Hawaii's historic Kealakekua Bay and Keauhou Shopping Center where you can find gourmet coffee shops, fine dining and casual restaurants, a supermarket, movie theater and more.
Our party of 9 (7 adults 2 children) spent 2016 Xmas vacation here. We found the property had all the amenities we required. We would recommend this property to anyone or group looking for a special place to celebrate or get-a-way.
The orientation of the house and pool make the afternoon viewing of sunsets nothing short of awesome. This house is well laid out for family or group gatherings & celebrations The common areas (kitchen, dinning area , living room, and lanai) are big enough to accommodate all and yet the house design allows guests to have their own space as well. For those who enjoy the ocean one of the best beaches around with a lifeguard is only 10 minute walk away. For those who enjoy a pool, this property has an outstanding pool and deck suited for all ages.
For shopping, sight seeing, and trips into Kona a car is a must.
We had a wonderful week at the Palauna Hale. Perfect location! We loved being within walking distance to two beaches and close to town. We stayed here with another family and we both had plenty of space and privacy. We loved having the pool as well, it was perfect for the kids and the sunset views from the pool deck were stunning. All in all we had an amazing time and can't wait to come back!
Our family spent Thanksgiving week at the house. We thoroughly enjoyed it! It is the perfect property for a family vacation. The swimming pool is beyond outstanding and the view is amazing. We enjoyed both the nearby beaches, the night swim with the Manta-rays was unbelievable, also loved the Fair-winds snorkel cruise which was great for kids and adults, went to the local Luau, and the ATV ride on the north end of the island and the zip-line on the Hilo side. We prepared most meals at the house including a magnificent Thanksgiving Day feast. There is abundant room for everyone to relax and play. The only problem was that we didn't want to leave! We definitely would recommend it to friends and family and hope we can come back some day.
We had a wonderful family vacation in this home. We had 10 adults, each room has a private bathroom and closet! Each room has it's own AC for temp control plus fans. The pool, yard, views, and sunsets are all spectacular. The home is well appointed, with lovely decor throughout! Beds are comfortable with plenty of bath towels and beach towels. Everything was clean... No problem with bugs - normal occasional cockroach or spider but that is expected in Hawaii! We are a cooking family with a chef-daughter. The kitchen is fairly well stocked but not really for a chef so we may bring a few items if we come back! The bbq's did not work properly and the ice maker is broken. The owner is extremely responsive, friendly and helpful - in all fairness, we didn't ask for help with the bbq but alerted him to the fact that it needs replacing. We purchased big bags of ice at Costco which was not a problem. Everyone loved the location of this home! It's very private- you really can't even see another home from the yard... Just lush landscape and the ocean!
This is by far our best VRBO experience ever!
A bonus - a few beach items in garage... Mats, umbrella, rafts etc! Zac brought us a rice cooker upon request which was very appreciated! Also, we just love that there are two master suites!!!
Thanks Zac for a great stay!

This home is conveniently located to the main highway, beaches, and town of Kona. There are ocean views, tropical landscaping, and the space feels secluded from neighbors even though the house is within a subdivision off the main road. The home itself is clean, well-stocked and spacious. There is plenty of parking in the driveway. As indicated in the property description, 3 of the 5 rooms are separated by a courtyard from the main house and allows for people to easily have separate space. Each room has its own bath + temperature control and there is a washer/dryer. The house accommodated all ages in our group- from toddler to teens to adults. The owner was very responsive to our questions and answered emails quickly. The infinity pool is huge and perfect for kids and their play with 3 different shallow ends. Those with very small children/toddlers should be aware that the pool is fully open to the patio and backyard without a gate. There are 2 family-friendly beaches within walking distance and lots of restaurants and shopping located within a short drive. We will definitely return and highly recommend this for others seeking a beautiful home base for their Hawaiian vacation.
Our stay was a small family gathering of adults and adult children, 5 couples in total. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. Very nice layout with very private rooms/suites, each with it's own bathroom. Nice large gathering spaces (kitchen, family/living room, lanai, pool) and the house itself was located so that it is very private.
The home was very clean and as advertised. The twin beds indicated are very large for twins. It was close to White Sands beach and a short drive back into town - really very convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. I highly recommend it for a gathering of couples.
FYI - you will want to take bar soap, shampoo and laundry detergent as it was not provided - the quality of the house and its location more than offset this inconvenience.
