Other Kailua-Kona Properties house description

We love Koihale, like she’s part of our family. In her we feel the spirit of aloha & we hope that you will too!

Koihale or Koi House, was built in 1961 by the Big Island’s most famous architect, Lucky Bennett, and was so named by its first owner, to celebrate the carefree spirit of the Koi whom he loved. Koihale showcases Lucky’s luxurious Hawaiian ‘Island style living’ at the beach park at Kahalu’u. This small beach community of Kahalu’u Beach lots, is just a short stroll to the surf, and a few minutes drive to the center of Kailua-Kona. It’s a dreamy lifestyle for beachcombers, golfers, surfers or artists. This area is steeped in Hawaiian history and this area is presently seeing a revival in culture, dance, and music!

Stunning as all Lucky Bennett designs are, at this location, he captures seaside Kona style and utilizes the mild climate & famous Kona Trade Winds, allowing you to open the many sliding wooden doors and windows exposing the natural beauty of Hawaii and more importantly utilizing the cooling tropical airflow. Outside this beauty is everywhere - in each angle and in all directions.

The lava-rock pool greets you at the entryway, complete with palms & plumeria; the incredibly generous use of Koa & Mango wood throughout; cupolas; cool tile floors; the upstairs sunset lanai; the sliding glass walls and doors, and open, indoor-outdoor layout — are all signature Bennett. Koi pond and water fall gardens create a peaceful ambiance that casts the charm.

We love waking every day to the gentle sound of Koi pond’s water falls – doves & myriad colored finches splashing about at the waters edge. The ponds - framed by lava rock walls, surrounded by tropical palms & fragrant plumeria - cradle the Koi that swim playfully through the water. Beyond them lay Kahalu’u Bay, teaming with Honus, Parrot Fish, Black & Yellow Tang, & brilliantly colored coral reef.

Whether you’ve come to Koihale as a retreat from “an extremely hectic life” or just to enjoy the natural beauty of the Big Island, we know that you will find the Spirit of Aloha here within our beautiful Koihale. We hope that you enjoy her as much as she enjoys giving to you.

This is a non-smoking, no pets unit with a 5 night minimum stay/10 during Ironman & Christmas season. Hawaii Tax ID: W00278100-01
