About the Unit

Our stunning Hawaiian Paradise home is located just a few blocks from the waterfront village of Kona, Hawaii in a private gated community of luxury homes. With a nearly constant year around temperature in the 80s, and a cool ocean breeze, this custom Hawaiian home is as tropical as you can get. Overlooking the crashing waves on the lava and sandy beach coast, the home features a designer infinity pool with two waterfalls, a sandy bottom wading pool, huge lanais, and two courtyard ponds with their own waterfalls in a 'Jurassic' garden setting. There is even a private 'island' dining patio next to the waterfall overlooking the dramatic Kona surf. The house comes fully furnished with a designer dream kitchen, open air oceanfront dining room, kitchen bar, living room, entertainment room, an unbelievable Master Suite with panoramic ocean views, a pampered ocean view study, two Tropical Guest Suites, each with their own separate entrance and opening onto the lush courtyard and waterfalls, and a separate Ohana Cottage Suite with its own kitchen, kitchen bar, sitting area and lanai. The master suite comes with its own private whale watching tower! The house sleeps eight, two in each suite plus futons for children.

'HALE KONA A'EKAI' is a unique oceanfront private custom home meaning 'the home by the wash of the sea'. It was intricately designed to capture the essence of waterfront Hawaiian living. Thatched ceilings, open walls, louvered teak windows, ten foot teak doors, endless lanais, and tropical landscaping, all help to capture the spirit of the islands. The house is exquisitely detailed with imported teak, bamboo, marble, granite, and quartzite throughout. The home has been featured in several magazines. The grounds are equally impressive with rare tropical flowers and palms, four waterfalls and a stunningly impressive bathing pool with an infinity edge. A stairway bridge takes you across to the island pedestal where you can lavish in a dinner surrounded by water with simultaneous views of the sunset, waterfalls and the crash of the waves! Enchanting, magical and romantic--there is so much more to describe---but you must see it for yourself! Unsurpassed luxury. Come stay with us and experience the mystique and beauty of the Big Island!

LIVING ROOM: Bamboo furniture adds to the tropical feel of the high ceiling open living area which extends out onto the Lanai. There is an area to sit and enjoy the ocean views and the infinity pool, a more private area to engage in conversation, and an entertainment area to enjoy the surround sounds of TV, a movie, or relaxing music. DINING: Enjoy the sunset while sipping Mai Tais on the whale watch tower. Don't forget to look for the 'green flash!' Dine at the six seat bamboo dining table that borders the lanai with open air ocean views, sit for pupus (appetizers) at the granite bar, or take dinner out to one of the ocean side teak tables to enjoy the sound of the dramatic nearby surf while dining under the bright Kona stars. The experience is mystical!

This was the perfect vacation home for our recent trip to the Big Island; almost a touch of Bali in Hawaii. Hotels are always a challenging/expensive option when traveling with 20-something kids and their significant others, so we were delighted to find this home. However, when we walked through the private gate into the secluded courtyard and saw the spectacular views and luxurious spaces in the home, everybody looked at each other and said "we may not have to leave all week." The spaces work perfectly for four couples and the kitchen was well equipped (my only complaint is that the outside grill does not work very well, even after the propane tank was replaced) even for a gourmet cook. The landlord is strict but very reliable and responsive. I have already recommended this house to good friends and would happily stay again in the future.

I think I can sum up our experience in one word 'fabulous'. It met and exceeded our expectations. Thank you.

My husband, our two sons ages 7 and 8, and my parents all stayed in this wonderful house while in Kona for the week. This is the second house we have stayed in that is located in the Kona Bay Estates and we love itit is private, safe, secluded, yet so close to Ali drive and all the shops, beaches, and restaurants that we could walk or ride our bikes. The pool was perfect for our sons and the tide pools are so close that they would take multiple walks throughout the day back and forth to the pools with their grandfather. The house is immaculate with beautiful views of the coast and one day I even saw a whale outside my bedroom window while lounging in my bed! We kept the windows upstairs open at night and with the provided fans we were very comfortable at night. The layout of the house was great because my parents felt like they were in their own house since they were staying in the guest house located in the front of the main house. We would recommend this house for anyone and will definitely rent again when we go back to Kona!
