Aloha and welcome to our home!
We call our Hawaiian home "Pua Kai Lani", which means "Heavenly Ocean Flower" in the Hawaiian language, an apropos name for our garden location (Flower = Pua), it's proximity to the Sea (Kai), and the comfort and luxury of our Heavenly (Lani) villa. E Komo Mai, Pua Kai Lani!
Kolea 16A is in a quiet corner of Kolea which is convenient to everything - the Beach Club, the beach, the Kings and Queens shops, and everything Waikoloa has to offer. Kolea is an exclusive gated community and our villa has been transformed into a luxury Hawaiian retreat with amenities superior to most five star hotels and better appointed than most vacation rentals in the area. Whether it be the well furnished rooms, the unique artwork, the comfortable beds, the gourmet kitchen, the walk out lanai, our concern for your health, and more, we try to leave no grain of sand unturned.
Our quiet, garden-level 3BR/2BA home is a luxurious, private, exotic 1554 sq. ft. living space. 16A is end unit, which means lots of windows and light, unlike many of the interior 2BR units. The villa is surrounded by lush vegetation and the large lanai spills out onto a grassy lawn which is perfect for playing kids or morning yoga with the mongoose! Perfect for couples traveling together or families with kids of all ages, our villa offers lots of space and flexibility!
We pride ourselves in offering superior customer service, including the small but important details for you, our guest:
Upon your arrival, we will have a fruit bowl and welcome gift basket waiting. We've sourced some of our favorite Hawaiian made snacks and beverages so that you can sample some of the best the islands have to offer! Plus we've left a list of some of our favorite island activities if you choose to get out and explore - the Big Island has a lot to offer!
The fully equipped gourmet kitchen has a SubZero fridge and freezer with ice maker and filtered water, a super quiet dishwasher (you'll have to check to see if it's even running!), a five burner ceramic cook top, oven, microwave, and all the accessories you will ever need. We provide local Kona coffee beans, a grinder, and coffee maker, as well as many spices, cooking oils, and more for a basic starting setup. Seating options abound for meals in - dine at the 3 person high counter bar, 6 person dining room table, or spend your time on the lanai, with lot's of comfortable seating, a table, a small fridge, and a Viking Grill so you can BBQ Hawaiian style!!!
The living area has a large wicker sectional couch (island made of course), a 60 inch smart HDTV to watch that big game with a huge selection of channels, as well as an Apple TV, a DVD player, and a bluetooth MP3 player - all with surround sound. Or learn to play one of the two ukuleles (tuner and "Ukulele for Dummies" book included!) The ceiling fan will keep the air moving as you open the glass pocket wall doors, bringing the outside in as the living room becomes part of the lanai for everyone to enjoy the fresh Hawaiian air.
The over sized Master Suite I has a King Bed with a brand new plush mattress (as of SEP 2015), a 48 inch smart HDTV, a ceiling fan, and its own spa-like private bath with two sinks, two shower heads, and a separate large soaking tub. Free wifi is available throughout the villa, and the smart HDTV's all offer Netflix and other streaming options.
Master Suite II has a King Bed, 42 inch smart HDTV, a ceiling fan, and an adjoining bathroom with a tub and spa shower with all the same bath amenities as in Master Suite I.
Guest Suite III has 2 Twin Beds and a shared bathroom, an HDTV, and a DVD player. Perfect for kids or adults. If desired, the twin beds can be made into a comfortable king bed to sleep a third couple.
We care about the health of our guests and the health of our planet, so we provide a bath amenity kit with locally made shampoos, conditioners, shower gel, soaps, and lotions - all natural without any harsh chemicals, which your skin and hair will love. We also provide earth-friendly detergents and soaps in our kitchen and laundry which are non-toxic to humans an the local marine environment.
Whenever we visit the island (several times a year), we're always making little changes to improve our guest's experience. We're thrilled that you're considering sharing our home, and we really do go the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful holiday! As of August 2015, we have taken over the management of our Villa for vacation rentals so we can provide you with that extra level of customer service and personal touch you have come to expect!
Mahalo for visiting our VRBO site and we hope you'll visit our home away from home soon! Please contact us via phone or email if you have any questions or would like to make a booking. We look forward to your visiting and sharing our home!
