Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Hale Wailele (Waterfall House) is a beautiful, spacious home with floor to ceiling windows in the great room looking out onto fountains in the pool with an incredible ocean view beyond the palm trees and torches. The architecture of the home makes it unique and inviting with artistic touches such as arches and cathedral ceilings throughout.

The master bedroom is furnished with a king bed, flat-screen TV, garden tub with separate shower, Toto bidet commode, and infra-red sauna.

Bedroom two has a king and a queen bed, TV in an armoire,, and full guest bath.

Bedroom three has a king bed, flat-screen TV and sitting area.

The den has a flat-screen TV, recliner, and a pullout sofa. It opens to a fenced side yard perfect for game of croquet or bocce. The den and bedroom three share a full guest bath.

The loft looks over the great room, has a computer desk, foosball table, 2 queen futons and 1 double futon.

The 4th bathroom is a tropical outdoor bathroom complete with a basalt tub, rain shower, two vanities, and a separate commode (with an ocean view=)!

The gourmet kitchen features stainless appliances and two adjoining dining areas. There are also two bar areas.

If you prefer to cook and dine on the lanai, we have a large stainless gas grill, and an Evo grill. There is seating for 10 at two lanai tables.

There is also a separate o'hana (guest studio 18X18 ft. with two single beds) available for an extra charge, please contact us for rates and details.

Tropical gardens surround the home on the spacious one acre lot. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the orchid garden, herb garden and extensive assortment of flowers and fruit trees including, papaya, lemon, lime apple-banana, fig, and mango.

Our home is in a quiet residential area, and therefore we do not offer it for weddings, meetings or parties. The enjoyment of the house, pool etc. is limited to the individuals listed on the rental agreement.

Also a quick note about our animal friends :)

Geckos: Because of the tropical climate and vegetation in Hawaii you are likely to see our friends the geckos. They are a beautiful bright green with a few magenta spots. They have no teeth, are harmless, and considered good luck on the islands because they eat harmful insects. They are most easily spotted outside by lights waiting for dinner, but can fit through the smallest openings and are sometimes seen inside as well. If you see one inside and prefer not to have its company, please just toss a hand towel over it and release it into the gardens.

Birds: There are many birds around the house and throughout the neighborhood including Brazilian cardinals, finches, doves, exotic pheasants, chickens, and others. While they are fabulous to watch and a favorite part of the tropics, they can also be noisy for light sleepers. We recommend adding a sleep app to any smart phone or bringing earplugs if you think you might be bothered.

About Alanya Berthiaume

Our family lives in Texas and we love to travel and experience new things. The Big Island of Hawaii is one of our favorite destinations because it has so much to offer. We have been coming to Kona for decades and we discover something new every time. The picture above was taken in 2010 right next to the flowing lava! What an incredible experience!

Alanya Berthiaume purchased this house in 2002

Why Alanya Berthiaume chose Kailua-Kona

I started coming to Kona in 1976 when my mom and dad decided it was the perfect vacation destination. I have come back with my family almost every year since. We chose Hale Wailele in Kona Heavens because of its ideal location on the Big Island. The house is a short drive to the airport, harbor, beaches and shopping. It is conveniently located between Kailua to the South, and the famous Kohala resorts to the North. Kona is on the drier side of the island so the coast is almost always sunny and warm, while the house is located at 1000 feet elevation with slightly cooler, incredibly comfortable temperatures. It is on a landscaped acre of land with palms, fruit trees and flowers, at the end of a cul-de-sac, so there is very little traffic.

What makes this house unique

We have a caretaker on site who can address any issues that may arise during your stay. If you'd like for me to email you a letter that lists some of my favorite restaurants, beaches, activities etc. just let me know. Aloha, Alanya

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful and comfortable for our family of 10! The pool, spa, cabana, bbq and view (inspite of the vog) was the best! We were close to shopping and the airport but high enough to get the breezes. Alanya and Kent (the caretaker) were responsive to us in every way. We would love to come back.

Perfect Big Island Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We thought the descriptions and photos of this home might be too good to be true, but it really lived up to all of the other reviews that are posted here. We rented it for the entire month of March along with three other couples and everyone was extremely pleased with all of the comforts and features.

Usually we eat out a lot when we are in the Kona area; however, we ate in more often on this trip simply because the facilities and setting for Happy Hour and dinner are tough to beat. While the ocean view is distant we had a few sunsets that were spectacular (in fact the owners have now included some of our photos on this site). Several meals included preparing fresh local fish (available daily at Costco just down the road) on the EVO Grill. Macadamia nut pancakes were also a hit on the EVO.

The Bose stereo system in the bar is pre-tuned to five perfect island music channels which we enjoyed often. During our stay they installed a new half-circle sitting area with a gas fire pit which made our evenings even more comfortable. The gazebo cover was only partially completed before we left but it should provide needed shade and rain protection when finished. Because this property is located a little over 1,000 feet above sea level it tends to be cooler and wetter, but we found that to be just fine after spending most days in the sun at one of our many favorite beaches up north (Beach 69, Hapuna, Kukio, 'A' Bay, Mauna Kea, etc.). The excellent hot tub was also put to good use on many evenings.

We tend to watch a lot of TV at home so I was a little concerned that their isn't a TV in the main living area. That turned out to be a good thing as we probably had a much better time visiting with our other guests in this amazing setting while listening to nice music, eating pupus, and sipping tropical drinks (there are TVs in the den and bedrooms but they were rarely used).

The on-property caretaker, Kent, was very helpful and kept us supplied with all of the beach-going necessities including a wheeled cooler, beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, etc. The house has an amazing display of artwork and statuary that must have stories to tell (I've suggested to Alanya that she include some history and information about these pieces along with some family history since their photos are lovingly displayed).

This is a perfect vacation home for a group of 6-8 people, or more with children. You won't be disappointed unless you need to be right on the beach!

Beautiful house and view with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The house is spacious and well stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay from the kitchen to beach. Pictures don’t do the view justice. It is stunning, unobstructed ocean looking west. The house and grounds are very clean. We had small children and would recommend this house as long as parents are vigilant, which we should be wherever we are anyways! Kids loved the pool, hammock, yard, etc. The on-site caretaker was responsive and helpful.

Beautiful home with spectacular views and everything you could need.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. The views and island breezes were great. We loved star gazing from the hot tub at night.

We also really appreciated all the amenities, supplies, snorkles, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. The house is close to spectacular beaches and dive sights. We saw seals, turtles and manta rays!

Beautiful home with an amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here as a surprise for my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary. It was an amazing house that each family had their own bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was large enough that 5 people could be working away and we weren't in each other's way. We absolutely loved the pool and hot tub and were in them every day. The caretakers were very nice helping with the automatic gate (it is a bit touchy). They were wonderful and I have already recommended this place to several other families.

Thank you.

Beautiful, Spacious and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything represented - and more. We felt as though we were the only ones on the island due to the privacy of the property, yet it's so conveniently located. It was much more room than our party of 6 needed, but that provided plenty of options for gathering and quiet spaces for reading or reflecting on the day's adventures. I had never heard of an EVO grill, but now we all want one! It was wonderful to cook up a couple of breakfasts for everyone at the same time and made fajitas a snap.

The most unique quality of renting this home was the personal attention; we felt like part of the family, not renters. Alanya was responsive and welcoming from my first contact, and I have never rented a home with an on-site caretaker! It was like having a personal concierge. He was amazing - welcoming us, responding to questions within minutes, and providing us with beach chairs and an umbrella, which made our visits to Two Steps for snorkeling (a local told us about it; amazing!) and Green Sand Beach much more comfortable.

I'm still dreaming of our stay . . .

Car: necessary

Kona is known for its world-class marlin fishing. We are almost directly above Honokohau Harbor which has a fun restaurant for lunch and is also where the fishing charters and many other ocean activities (sunset sails, manta ray snorkleing and diving cruises, zodiak tours, whale watching etc.) are based. There are some wonderful white sand beaches and tide pool areas within a 10 or 15 minute drive. Costco is also just about a 5 minute drive and is a great place to stock up for your vacation and it is usually the most economical place to buy gas.
