Private Homes, Kona Heavens house description

Hale Wailele (Waterfall House) is a beautiful, spacious home with floor to ceiling windows in the great room looking out onto fountains in the pool with an incredible ocean view beyond the palm trees and torches. The architecture of the home makes it unique and inviting with artistic touches such as arches and cathedral ceilings throughout.

The master bedroom is furnished with a king bed, flat-screen TV, garden tub with separate shower, Toto bidet commode, and infra-red sauna.

Bedroom two has a king and a queen bed, TV in an armoire, recliner, and full guest bath.

Bedroom three has a king bed, TV and sitting area.

The den has a flat-screen TV, recliner, and a pullout sofa. It opens to a fenced side yard perfect for game of croquet or bocce. The den and bedroom three share a full guest bath.

The loft looks over the great room, has a computer desk, foosball table, 2 queen futons and 1 double futon.

The 4th bathroom is a tropical outdoor bathroom complete with a basalt tub, rain shower, two vanities, and a separate commode (with an ocean view=)!

The gourmet kitchen features stainless appliances and two adjoining dining areas. There are also two bar areas.

If you prefer to cook and dine on the lanai, we have a large stainless gas grill, an Evo grill, and a high intensity gas burner for the big lobster pots. There is seating for 10 at two lanai tables.

There is also a separate o'hana (guest studio 18X18 ft.) available for an extra charge, please contact us for rates and details.

Our home is in a quiet residential area, and therefore we do not offer it for weddings, meetings or parties. The enjoyment of the house, pool etc. is limited to the individuals listed on the rental agreement.

Also a quick note about our four-legged friends :)

Cat: There is a black and white cat who has adopted Hale Wailele. His name is Piccolo and we feed him up by the garage. He lives outdoors but may stop by to meow hello :)

Geckos: Because of the tropical climate and vegetation in Hawaii you are likely to see our friends the geckos. They are a beautiful bright green with a few magenta spots. They have no teeth, are harmless, and considered good luck on the islands because they eat harmful insects. They are most easily spotted outside by lights waiting for dinner, but can fit through the smallest openings and are sometimes seen inside as well. If you see one inside and prefer not to have its company, please just toss a hand towel over it and release it into the gardens.

                  Location

                  Kona is known for its world-class marlin fishing. We are almost directly above Honokohau Harbor which has a fun restaurant for lunch and is also where the fishing charters and many other ocean activities (sunset sails, manta ray snorkleing and diving cruises, zodiak tours, whale watching etc.) are based. There are some wonderful white sand beaches and tide pool areas within a 10 or 15 minute drive. Costco is also just about a 5 minute drive and is a great place to stock up for your vacation and it is usually the most economical place to buy gas.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: Our family lives in Texas and we love to travel and experience new things. The Big Island of Hawaii is one of our favorite destinations because it has so much to offer. We have been coming to Kona for decades and we discover something new every time. The picture above was taken in 2010 right next to the flowing lava! What an incredible experience!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Kona Heavens:
                  I started coming to Kona in 1976 when my mom and dad decided it was the perfect vacation destination. I have come back with my family almost every year since. We chose Hale Wailele in Kona Heavens because of its ideal location on the Big Island. The house is a short drive to the airport, harbor, beaches and shopping. It is conveniently located between Kailua to the South, and the famous Kohala resorts to the North. Kona is on the drier side of the island so the coast is almost always sunny and warm, while the house is located at 1000 feet elevation with slightly cooler, incredibly comfortable temperatures. It is on a landscaped acre of land with palms, fruit trees and flowers, at the end of a cul-de-sac, so there is very little traffic.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have a caretaker on site who can address any issues that may arise during your stay. If you'd like for me to email you a letter that lists some of my favorite restaurants, beaches, activities etc. just let me know. Aloha, Alanya
