Kailani Villa is a spacious single-story home designed with style and comfort in mind. With 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, there's room for up to six guests. The main living space is an open-design living room, kitchen and dining area, each showcasing the breathtaking ocean view. The floors are beautiful, deep hardwoods and the vaulted ceilings feature open beams and woven lahala insets. The living room has ample seating, large a TV with satellite service, and a DVD player with a library of movies.
The home cooks in your group will delight in the large, open chef's kitchen. There are fine custom countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher and a 6 burner gas range. All the small appliances you'll need are provided, as are cabinets full of prep, cooking, and serving ware. Once dinner is ready, you can choose your dining space: inside or out? The formal dining area comfortably seats six and, like every room along this side of the house, has a panoramic ocean view. Outside on the lanai is another dining table with six tropical grass-weave chairs to enjoy your morning coffee or meal.
Back inside are three luxurious bedrooms. Just off the living room is the master suite with a king bed and full ensuite bathroom. At the far end of the house is the second suite, this one with a queen bed, ocean view and French doors that open to the lanai. The third bedroom has a full/double bed. There is plenty of closet space to store your sandals, shorts and t-shirts.
If you have to work, there's a large office area with not just one, but two desks. High speed internet with wifi is provided. There's a landline telephone for incoming and local outgoing phone calls. A fully equipped laundry room with washer and dryer is available as well.
A spacious terra cotta tiled lanai runs the complete length of the house and offers plenty of lounge chairs to greet the morning sunrise, relax with a book, gaze out over the ocean in search of whales (November – March), keep a watchful eye over your children as they enjoy the in-ground swimming pool or enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine. And the rustic dining table is always there for meal time, snack time or board game time while you take a break from the sun.
The most unexpected feature at Kailani Villa are the resident sheep! The fenced pasture area at the south end of the property is home to the small herd. They are quite playful, especially the baby lambs who might venture over to the fence and greet you! They are contained for your safety and theirs and a caretaker does stop in occasionally to feed and check on them.
Your holiday wouldn't be complete without enjoying the abundant tropical flowers and trees, ocean breezes and warm sunshine. The six-and-one-half acres is your private botanical garden with fragrant flowers like Plumeria and Tahitian Gardenia, colorful flowers such as Hibiscus and Bougainvillea, various Palm trees and fruit trees too!
Kailani Villa is located near the small village of Ninole on the east side of the Big Island of Hawai'i, about 20 miles north of Hilo along the glorious Hamakua Coast. Situated in convenient driving proximity to both Hilo and Waimea, it is a great jumping-off point for all of your Big Island adventures including downtown Hilo, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, and Parker Ranch, to name a few. The white sand beaches of the Kohala Coast and the lush jungles of lower Puna are an hour's drive.
