About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
This four-bedroom, three-bath home is located right on the water's edge and offers the dual delight of Puako sunsets (which you’ll share with the Honu—sea turtles—who sunbathe on the lava rocks) coupled with views of the summit of Mauna Kea. A well-loved home, where the owners raised their family, Hale Lihikai offers three options for a range of visitors: the Kona Side, the Kohala Side or the entire house, depending on your numbers and needs. Whichever you choose, you will enjoy your time spent amid unique surfing and Hawaiian décor, mature and lush landscaping lovingly planted over the years, and the shoreline of Puako Bay. If you need an additional bedroom for 5 rooms total there is a studio rental above the garage called Hale Lihikai in the Trees VRBO#624088 that can also be rented.
Enter this charming, private place via an arbor by a small pond festooned with water plants, including cabbage and heliotrope. Walk along a coral-lined path beside thick lau’ae ferns, tall bamboo, graceful palms, colorful crotons, huge bird-of-paradise plants and a giant flowering monkeypod tree. The tree is so large that the entire house is cooled by its majestic canopy, and the sea breezes and ceiling fans keep you comfortable whenever you choose to visit. The front porch offers a restful bench under trellises for viewing the plentiful gardens. This is the home’s main entrance, with a beautiful etched-glass door created by Gary Wagner.
The house is set well back from the street, with ample parking reached by passing through a porte-cochere of a separate structure that creates additional privacy from the road.
Hale Lihikai is the perfect vacation home for two families or a multi-generation extended family…with two kitchens (both with ocean views) and accommodations for eight. Rattan furniture throughout is designed for easy living and family life. This home provides quiet contemplation in the gardens, grassy yard, cozy spots for private breakfasts, sunny sand and shore, shaded hammocks, picnic tables on your personal beach …even a “lounging pool” (or wading pool for children) created by lava rocks in the shallows of the ocean!
You will be most likely to spend your time outside it! Hale Lihikai’s sandy “personal beach” is surrounded with Naupaka shrubs, on the other side of which lies the ocean with its lava-rock outcroppings—a favorite spot for Honu to sun themselves. You’ll be tempted to do the same in the natural ocean pool rimmed by rocks—with or without the kids. Your beach has a hammock and lounge chairs under tall, shady palms, picnic tables and a gas grill.
