This is a' PRIVATE HOME' - not a condo or apartment.
We are surrounded by multi million dollar homes, well kept vacation rentals.
The home is has a perfect layout. Its has a covered carport in the rear, and the back door is right there. No steps, to the kitchen. Great for unloading your grocery.
The two bedrooms are separated by the kitchen making it very private. Both have their own separate remodeled full bathrooms. The dining and living room have no dividing wall so it has an open feeling.There are ceiling fans throughout the entire house, and two AC's in each bedroom.
Most of your time will be spent on our 700 sq ft covered lanai. Its so pleasant you'll want to eat and sleep there mostly all of the day, and night.
The birds are always around, hanging out in our grassy yard. We have banana trees, palms trees, hawaiian noni, pikaki flowers, hibiscus, limes, heliconia, bird of paradise and more.
The property is approx. 10,000 sq. ft. and it sits at the very top of the lot, so it has a direct OCEAN breeze.
The view is awesome, palm trees, and blue ocean. The morning sunrise with some Kona Coffee makes it a special way to wake up. In the evening, having a cocktail and watching the sunset is most memorable. Its all about gratitude, and appreciate the good life.
If you're into sports or just exercise, its so convenient just to get some running or walking shoes and head out right in front. Across the street one house away is a public right away to the ocean. You can often see the turtles hanging out on the lava rocks. Also, Dolphins and sometimes Whales can be seen just playing here.
Only 8 homes away is walking distance to Kahalu'u beach. Its everyones favorite beach to snorkle. The reef is protected in this half mile wide bay. It became a park in in 1953. Every colorful fish is there as well as Turtles. Reef teach, a non profit group, often sets up at the park pavilion to encourage responsible snorkeling, to protect our living coral.
There are two lifeguard towers, numerous pavilions, restrooms, and open BBQ. If you want to try surfing, there is a surf school right across the beach. If you already know how to surf, no problem, we own a surf shop in Kailua Kona in town, and we have surfboards. We've been in business since 1978, so, we also can recommend whatever you desire from massages, hair salons, chiropractors, minister for weddings, catering, and so on.
The home is kid friendly since the lanai is all enclosed. We have lots of videos for their entertainment. Its also elderly friendly, with no stairs needed to enter, and the showers have a low entry. We supply you with bottled Osmosis water for drinking. We have a library of books of Hawaii and health. So, if you want to feel like you're relaxed in a comfortable home you'll love this one!
The location is in Keauhou Kona 4 miles south of Kailua Kona. The historical is rich dating back to the 1800's of Kamehameha I. One quarter mile south are notable Heiau's-and fish ponds. At the beach is a dollhouse St. Peters Church, which sits atop the sacred site of the pagan Kuemanu Heiau. This is where the ancients prayed for waves for surfing.
Just south of Kahalu'u Beach is the Kona Lagoon, 4,000 foot semicircle of boulders known as the Menehune Breakwater. Created by fishpond builders that predated the Polynesian voyagers, this man-made feature has been greatly altered by the pounding of waves.
Within a mile is the Keauhou Shopping Center, which has an open farmers market every Saturday morning. Here you can get local Kona coffee, homemade jams, fresh produce and flowers. It has a bank, gas station, grocery market, pharmacy, post office, lots of restaurants, theater,and 'Sam Choy's'. Occasionally, there is live musical entertainment, usually free, or two cans of food donated to the food bank.
Get ready to have fun and relax the Hawaiian Way.
Keywords: PRIVATE HOME, very comfortable. Huge lanai overlooking the ocean. Enjoy the many
orange sunsets, sipping your tropical Mai Tai's. Enjoy the oceanbreeze, home sits on a slight hill, 15 yds.. from the road. Unobstructed view of the blue ocean, lined with swaying palmtrees.

Take a morning dip, and another one in the evening. You'll love the set up, its like a home away from home! Got a large group, family gathering, no problem, book our home next door. You'll be able to sleep up to 18 people. VRBO #400030

Great location and relaxing place to stay
Great location and relaxing place to stay
We had a wonderful week-long stay at Hale O Makai with our two year old. The owner, Simmy, was very helpful, always responsive to our inquiries, and loaned us plenty of beach and baby gear. The location is great -- walking distance to Kahaluu Beach where there's amazing snorkeling; a 3 min drive to a shopping center with a supermarket, drugstore, restaurants, and weekly farmers market; and 10-15 min drive to Kona where there are plenty of restaurants and activities. The house isn't fancy but is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. We found pretty much everything we needed and looked for (a blender, toaster, broom and dust pan, Scrabble, even a toilet plunger!). We spent most of our time on the lanai, which is large, comfortable, and has a great view of the sunset each evening. Thank you Simmy!

This was our family's first time using vrbo (2 parents, 2 teenagers) but we couldn't have been more pleased. The house is so comfortable, clean, just like the photos and has a very home-like feel too it. We had been staying in hotels for most of our travels across Canada before flying to Hawaii and this vrbo was just what we need - a home away from home to relax and feel at ease in. We could hear the surf at night and that was very special, wonderful feeling. The kids loved to lounge on the lanai and the house is very close to snorkelling, surfing, and magic sands beach. With a rental car, we drove into town (again, not far at all) to buy food etc. for our stay. The Big Island is fascinating and we are glad we visited. Simmy was a wonderful hostess and always available if we had any questions. We'd definitely recommend this house and we hope we can visit again!

Summer vacation 2012
Summer vacation 2012
Our family of 4 including 2 young-adult children recently spent a week here. It was FABULOUS. The ocean-view is spectacular and the home is walking distance to the beach which had great snorkeling and surfing for those that are so inclined. Simmy was a wonderful resource for any questions. The house had plenty of space and was fully equipped inside and out; the kitchen had plenty of appliances and there were beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards, surf boards, noodles, towels, umbrella etc for the beach. I just wish it weren't such a long trip from the east coast making it difficult to go on a regular basis.

Spring Brake 2012
Spring Brake 2012
We enjoyed the best spring brake with my family in this house ever. We got everything we expected and more. The location of this place is perfect. It let us enjoy everything the island provides. Few minutes South from the house there is a snorkel beach, farmers market, and surf school. Few minutes North there is the Magic Sand Beach with endless waves. We saw dolphins and a whale from the deck, the whale was surprisingly close, the dolphins were swimming from North to South. We loved the lanai where we were eating, watching the birds, the banana and papaya trees. I felt rejuvenated, my kids never been more alive, my wife and mother in-law were nice to me also. Simmy answered every question we asked, the two conversations with Michael gave me something new, I did not get it from anywhere else. I can recommend Sam Choy-s restaurant just above the shopping center. Since we got home to Northern BC, I cannot stop thinking about how to get back to the Island. It is still a daily conversation topic the place. Sometimes I think every day is lost I spend with my regular work, not living off the sea, not enjoying playing in the sea. Any questions you might have please address it to Simmy, she has my email address.

One block away from the best Snorkeling Beach on the Island. Famous for half mile wide bay, filled with every colorful fish in Hawaii. Became a park in 1953. The little blue church "St. Peter's" is a historical landmark. Sits atop a sacred site of the pagan Kuemanu Heiau, where the ancients prayed for GOOD SURFING!...MoreCollapse

About the owner: Owner of 'Pacific Vibrations Surf shop' since 1978.. Voted #1 Surf Shop for West Hawaii Today reader choice 2010 !. We were very first surf shop to open in Kona, when there were no Traffic lights! Our whole family surfs, and involved in the Ironman Triathlon World Championship. Since the early 80's we were directors for the swimmers. We love the ocean and spend at least 5 days a week just Surfing. We used to do a lot of triathlons, running, and weights. Our spare times are with our Grand chlidren, and our love for animals (pony, ducks, parrots, dogs, cats, chickens, turtles, and geese). Also, we're into planting Hawaiian Native trees, and organic gardening.
Why the Owner Chose Kahaluu Beach:
Growing up in Honolulu Hawaii, and knowing how fast the buildings went up there, I knew ahead of time what would happen to Kona. I remembered as a child riding horses in Kapiolani Park on Sundays! Alii Drive is the next Kalakaua Ave/ Kahala of Honolulu. So, since 1978 I made a sticker and T-Shirt 'Keep Kona Country'!!! and till today its my best seller for the locals as well as the tourist. Now I do know why this property, it was where the chiefs of Hawaii were born and resided in Hawaii, King Kamehameha I and King Kamehameha III.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I never could explain it before, but, now there is a whole deal about negative ions. I've heard that if you get close to the ocean, because of the ocean waves, you get the negative irons. Its just a certain feeling of just being relaxed in a simple way, freeing your mind, and relaxing your body and soul. When the surf is up, the sounds of the ocean is so beautiful. Our busiest times is the winter months, and that when the surf is the biggest. We are across the street of the ocean, I was often afraid of being directly on the ocean. I witnessed oceanfront homes completely sweeped into the ocean, so, personally prefer where I'm at. The sea level is rising and the shoreline is changing. I believe in allowing the ocean its natural flow.
