Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

NEW! Luxurious and spacious oceanfront property with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths on 6.5 acres -- including sheep! Relax by the pool and enjoy both sides of the Big Island at this great location on the Hamakua Coast!

Kailani Villa is the epitome of privacy, comfort and style. On six and a half acres, the estate is private, fenced and away from the fray of normal life. Retreat to the immense back lanai to unwind on custom teak and upholstered lounges. Marvel in the 180 degree oceanfront views of the deep blue Pacific Ocean and watch whales frolic in winter season. Cook your meals in the well-stocked open kitchen with LOTS of counter space.

Kailani Villa is located in Ninole on The Big Island, about 20 miles north of Hilo on the glorious Hamakua Coast. Located in convenient driving proximity to both Hilo and Waimea, it is a great jumping off point for all of your Big Island adventures, including Volcanoes National Park, Parker Ranch, botanical gardens, zip line tours, lava boat tours and whale watching. When you're not driving around this unique and varied BIG island, Kailani gives you the best of the island in expansive views to enjoy from the tiled pool or the vast grounds! The resident sheep will also make you feel a world away from the urban rush of mainland life!

The 3-bedroom, 3-bath home is large and spread out for your comfort. Two of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and a King or Queen sized bed. The third bedroom has a Double bed. The third bathroom is off the hall for everyone to use. The floors are beautiful, deep hardwoods and the ceilings are vaulted in the living areas. There is even a very user friendly office area, and there is a fully equipped laundry room for longer stays. Satellite TV and DVD players are available on two TVs: one in the Living room and the other in Master Suite Two. Limited high speed internet is available via wired connection in the Kitchen for booking area activities or checking email.

Off the beaten path, but easliy accesible, Kailani is on a private water catchment system that is filtered for drinkability. The acreage is shared by some playful sheep - the older ones tend to stay away, while the younger ones are bold and may venture up toward the house to greet you! A caretaker may stop by the propery to check on them occasionally. There is a swimming pool that is fenced for the safety of young children and the resident sheep.

Your Hawaii Holiday wouldn't be complete without enjoying the abundant tropical flowers, ocean breezes and warm sun of the 50th State. The six and a half acre property at Kailani is your private botanical garden with white and rainbow Plumeria, Tahitian Gardenia, Hibiscus and Bouganvilla flowering plants, just to name a few. Pick a new bouquet every day! Lay out on the terra cotta tile patio around the pool and sleep with windows open all year round. This is your Hawaiian Big Island retreat!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips. The view was spectacular. And built in entertainment with your friendly sheep. They each have a special personality. They made us laugh every day!! We will miss them, along with the roster and the invisible donkey.

What a peaceful place. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise.

Remote, peaceful, location

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by our lovely hostess, even though we arrived late in the evening.She showed us around to make certain all of our questions were answered, so we could enjoy every benefit the home had to offer. The home is remote but very comfortable. The property is filled with every kind of flower you could imagine! Gorgeous. The pool was an added bonus. We enjoyed relaxing around it...wonderful vacation! Thank you, elizabeth

Lovely location with beautiful views and great potential

  • 3 of 5

The property management was responsive and very professional. The house site was beautiful with panoramic views of the ocean, and it was quiet and peaceful. The house itself is well set up for small groups; lots of space and room for gathering as well as privacy.

Unfortunately, the house is beginning to feel worn-out, and a number of maintenance issues need addressing. In addition, the kitchen is not well stocked for cooking even basic meals, and a deeper cleaning needs to be done.

I happily recommend the site, but be prepared to deal with some minor frustrations in the kitchen usability, some "critters" sharing the space, and a property starting to show some wear and tear.

Dont waste your money!

  • 1 of 5

The photos look great, however the house is in pretty bad shape. I hoped that the previous negative reviews would have prompted the owners to make changed however a few items:

1. The kitchen is VERY poorly stocked with necessities to prepare a meal.

2. The pool is FILTHY!!

3. The plumbing is in very poor condition. The master shower is inoperable and so is the toilet.

Overall the land is beautiful, the view is amazing.. However the home is very poorly kept, very very dirty compared the to the other rentals we've had on the island.

I would steer clear of this rental property.

Had a Wonderful time but property needs alot of TLC

  • 3 of 5

We live on the Big Island but wanted a place that we could all get together to celebrate my father's Birthday and this spot was perfect. The pictures were beautiful and it was private. However, on the day of check in we were told that our check in time was pushed back due to a housekeeping issue which we understood but when asked if we could extend our stay the same length as our check in got pushed back we were told that they were busy this time of year and could not accommodate us, ok, but when we pulled up to the house we noticed dead plants in the window pots and mildew on the pathways. Once inside the house it was as beautiful as the pictures were, which was great. We continued on to the pool area and realized the pool was much smaller then the pictures made it out to look which was ok until we noticed the mildew on the stairs and the surrounding area of the pool which made it a bit dangerous for us walking to and from, and around the pool especially for the kids. I felt that this could have been avoided by a little power washing. The small lawn between the house and the pool could have also used some cutting, the grass was long enough to where you could barely see the stone path that lead you to the pool. I understand it rains alot there but knowing someone was renting they could have given a little extra care to the property. The inside of the house was great, minor flaws like a broken window that could not open, peeling wall paper, and a leak down the wall, but still a Beautiful house. My overall impression of the property and house was that it was a while since they rented it out and really didn't put too much time and effort into fixing it up to be ready to rent out. Again, we did have a wonderful weekend with the family and created memories that will last forever, but when asked if it was worth the price we paid..... probably not. It's is amazing what a little bit of upkeep can do to a place. On a side note the sheep and rooster were the favorites of the kids! With all that aside we still felt this was a Beautiful place and Loved every minute of the time we spent there! Thank you for allowing us to make memories for our family!

Amazings views and charming house but requires some tender loving care

  • 3 of 5

The house has amazing water views and was nice and spacious for our party of six. The house is well furnished and newly renovated. It has such great potential but it is such a shame that it is lacking some much needed tender loving care - the pool was green when we arrived and whilst it was serviced the following day the water was still murky with overgrown shrubs growing in the water so we were not comfortable using one of the main selling points of this place. The grass was also too long to walk around and explore the property (although I appreciate the difficulty in maintaining a property this size). When it rained it leaked inside the house in a number of places, explaining the damp, musty smell throughout the house. We would have enjoyed our stay more had it been that little bit cleaner, but otherwise a nice place.
