Kainaliu house description

Red Gate is in the ahu’upua’a of lehu’ula, meaning the red of Hawaii and her people. It was probably part of the gardens of Lono, and with its rich, deep soil, wild taro and planted breadfruit and bananas--it is easy to imagine the Hawaiian farmers and Kona field system of the old days.

We are at an ideal elevation for these traditional foods and citrus, lychee, avocadoes and many other fruits and of course Kona coffee, all growing profusely in the gardens. There is a large mango tree that produces an abundance of mangoes in the spring and summer and everyday a few mangoes drop on to the soft lawn and mulch, even in the “off” season.

The flower grotto on the front porch is filled with flowering orchids and the lanai is the perfect
place to enjoy the gardens and sunset ocean view. The gardening tradition at Red Gate is organic and biodynamic, and the gardens are profuse with flowers and fruit trees bearing year round. Fruit is for your consumption. There are paths and trails that are fun to walk and that are full of surprises and seasonal perennials. This is an organic oasis for birds with birdbaths provided for their enjoyment and bird watching from the front lanai.

The house is spacious and light with classic wood floors and built in koa wood accents. A traditional window bed in the living room provides sleeping space for a child or a relaxing place to read or rest with a view of the gardens. the ambiance of the house reflects old Hawaii with the comfort of modern conveniences.

The front porch with French doors leads to the high ceiling living room and then to the hall and the formal dining room, two bedrooms, two baths and a second porch kitchen, which comes in handy when picking fruit from the garden or hosting an event.

The grounds at Red Gate make a beautiful tropical environment for a wedding or family gathering. Nature surrounds and embraces the house with magical views everywhere. It is peaceful, beautiful, and harmonious—an organic oasis that is an easy walk to Kainaliu Village with stores, galleries, restaurants, a coffee shop, historical Lanakila Church and the Aloha Theater.

There are two bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a King size bed. Bedroom 2 has a queen size bed and a futon bed. We provide additional futon mattress .

There are two full bathrooms with shower stalls and one tub. Linens and towels are included with the unit. Cable and Wifi are also provided.

Dining Room seats 6-8 guests. The kitchen is stocked with cookware, dishes and utensils. A cleaning service is available every two weeks.

There is parking space for 3-4 cars on site. Property is available for private events.

                  We are at 1200 ft on Hualalai mountain. The most beautiful place to swim is a short 15min drive from our house, Kealakekua Bay, with a resident pod of dolphins and humpback whales in the winter months. After a day sightseeing and beaching, return to our cool gardens and the quaint amenities of island village life.
