Waimea Estate Rental Photos and Description

AUGUST 2016 SPECIAL! 15% OFF! $3500 per night

HALE SURFS UP – An amazing OCEAN FRONT LUXURY ESTATE where your vacation begins on the water's edge. This very large and open contemporary home is as close to the water as you can get on the Big Island, ON THE BEACH and under the PALM TREES.

This 4 bedroom, 4.5 baths estate on 1.34 acres, enjoys 300 feet of OCEAN FRONTAGE and sleeps 8-10 comfortably. The estate is an ideal location for family reunions, wedding parties, anniversaries, special birthdays and other celebrations. Ask us about “special events.” This estate is literally 50 feet from the ocean and from the home you enjoy 180-degree views of the ocean and Kohala Mountains. In winter months watch and admire whales and dolphins swimming nearby.

Hale Surf's Up is completely furnished for a modern contemporary lifestyle, with comfortable seating throughout. Every room has a number of original work of art. This house is designed for easy carefree living with vanishing mahogany doors, opening to magnificent ocean views and sounds to thoroughly enjoy your Hawaii vacation. The 12' mahogany doors slide away creating an oasis of indoor and outdoor living. The estate is a smart house, with Lutron lighting system, 7 large flat screen TV's in every room, along with indoor-outdoor surround sound music system.

The Gourmet Kitchen is a chef’s delight! Imagine prepping and cooking your meals on a MIELE gas cooktop with views of the ocean and pool and every thing you need readily available. The kitchen was designed to take advantage of the views so you won’t miss out on anything! There is also a butler’s kitchen with plenty of pantry storage. Kitchen includes two full Subzero refrigerators with dual freezers in kitchen, and dual drawer refrigerated vegetable crisper. Dual MIELE dishwashers for fast dinner cleanup.

Hear the ocean waves wash ashore while relaxing in the huge 56’ infinity pool with nearby heated lava spa with warm sand entry. At night, light up the two large fire-bowls and four tiki torches to enjoy the tropical Hawaiian nights.

Mix a tropical drink at the circular wet bar, which includes ice maker, refrigerator, dishwasher, and TV on the ocean side lanai. Enjoy the additional Sunset Paradise Beach bar on the private sand point with fire pit while making S’mores and listening to music.

Hale Surf’s Up guests have full access to Pauoa Beach Private Beach Club amenities as well the hotels' beautiful white-sand beaches, restaurants, spas, shops, golf, tennis.

Secluded beach coves are just outside your private beach gate where you can swim, snorkel with the turtles, boogie board, stand up paddle boards, or walk along the shore line under the palm trees. Enjoy the warm outdoor beach shower upon your return from your ocean adventure.

Hale Surf's Up is also a quick walk to 3 surf points; Peaks, Suicides, and Old Man Ritz Right.

Our staff will welcome you upon your arrival as well as assist you upon your departure. Extra services such as private chefs, housekeeping, baby-sitting and recommendations for restaurants, shopping and island activities are readily available.

Your stay includes twice a week linen change and light housekeeping. Daily house cleaning and linen change is available for an extra charge.

Pauoa Beach is an oceanfront community located between two luxurious hotels, the Fairmont Orchid and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. The warn climate on the Kohala Coast is one of the best in the island chain...Warm and sunny with clear skies almost all days of the year.

Pauoa beach is one of the most exclusive gated enclaves in the state and offers the highest levels of amenities, along with ocean front location. Facilities at the “Pauoa Beach Club” include a large, stunning negative edge pool, lounges, umbrellas, locker rooms, massage rooms, baby pool, sauna and fitness center. Pauoa Bay, with its white sand beach and palm trees, is one of the most picturesque in Hawaii where sea life abounds. In the winter months, you may see dolphins and whales playing in the warm waters off shore.

Within the resort, about a 10 min walk from this estate, The Shops at Mauna Lani offer a gourmet grocery market, Tommy Bahamas, Ruth Chris Steak House, Monstera Sushi and numerous coffee and smoothie cafes. Check out free cultural events at the Shops at Mauna Lani. For extra fun and convenience, consider renting an electric GEM car to get around Mauna Lani. Just do a google search for Hawaii resort carts, to find a company that will deliver a 4 or 6 seat electric GEM car to Hale Surf's Up.

About Greg Gilliom

In the Owner's Words: Hale Surf's Up is one of our primary homes. We live here many months of the year. We welcome guests who will enjoy the beautiful ocean views and original artwork that make our home a special Hawaiian getaway.

Greg Gilliom purchased this estate in 2002

Why Greg Gilliom chose Kohala Coast

We purchased this property because it is very unique, on the point at the ocean's edge. We have 17 palm trees on the point, which gently sway in the trade winds. It is the only property with a private sandy area within the Naupaka hedge, providing much needed privacy from the public walking along the beach.

What makes this estate unique

The Sounds!! The back lanai of Hale Surf's Up is 50' from the ocean. Many homes say they are oceanfront, but they may be 1000' or more from the ocean. The soothing sounds of gentle ocean waves at Hale Surf's Up will be music to your ears. When the whales smack their tales in the winter, you hear them like they are right next door.

Amazing House & Property

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property in a fantastic location. We had 2 families with 4 kids for a week. Lots of entertainment for the kids and plenty of relaxing spots for the adults. The Kona beer on tap is pretty nice as well. We would definitely recommend and hope to come back ourselves! Mahalo!

Awesome Beachfront Home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, over the top home, with all the amenities. Never wanted to leave. Landscaping and pool are simply stunning. Evening sunsets were spectacular. Owner & property manager are the best we've experienced. On their recommendation, we had a catered dinner at Hale Surf's Up, which was phenomenal. Norio's at the Orchid was an excellent dining experience as well. We thoroughly enjoyed the adjacent beach at the Fairmont Orchid (within 50 yards), the beach walkways, the Owner's Beach, the Fitness Center, the Black Sand Beach and the tide pools at the Mauna Lani. Totally relaxing venue. Too spoiled now to go back to a hotel/resort.

Fantastic location, on the beach by the Orchid hotel

  • 5 of 5

This is the most amazing house I ever rented in Hawaii. The location is stellar and so close to the best amenities at Mauna Lani Resort. I have to say, when you walk into this house, you may never leave. The interiors are beautiful and very comfortable. The exterior is lush and completely private. Everything you need is just steps away – the beach, the sound of the waves, your own pool, spa, pool table, Media Room, there is even an outdoor bar! We ate in several nights using the BBQ by the pool, which was totally relaxing and fun for our family. We can't wait to get back next year.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your wonderful review. We are glad you and your family enjoyed the beach bar area on the beach and your request to hang the hammocks there too. We have left them there permanently now for future renters.

Perfect beachfront home for families with kids

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several high-end Mauna Lani properties, but this home is now at the top of our list! The house is outfitted with a very complete kitchen as well as outdoor grill. We cooked in far more than expected because of the amenities were so convenient and the indoor/outdoor living space was so spacious and relaxing! Hearing and seeing the ocean and watching the sunsets is incredible! The kids were at the beach, in the pool all day! Our children (ages 12- 16) loved having their own space and the layout of the home is fantastic and provides space for everyone 'under one roof'. We would recommend and hope to come back ourselves! Mahalo

Best house ever for our Hawaii family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This year we rented this beautiful home for a 2-week stay. It is in perfect condition (actually more beautiful than the photos) and we opted for daily housekeeping by a reliable, efficient and friendly staffer. The owner is extraordinarily helpful and accommodating, which made the relationship (and arranging our vacation logistics) extremely satisfying. The home is located right on the beach. The estate and grounds are very large and you cannot get any close to the beach! Our family of 6 has been coming to the Kohala Coast for nearly 30 years and this was another great trip, and we will stay again at this luxury estate. Bear in mind this is an expensive proposition and while there are clearly less-costly ways to experience the coast at least for this family, this estate, the service and the attention of ownership and staff exceeded our highest expectations.
