About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our Hawaii home is called Kailani, in Hawaiian Kai Means Ocean and Lani means heavenly. We named our home because of the fabulous sweeping views of the ocean from most of the rooms and the 1200 square feet lanai facing the ocean. We are lucky to have breathtaking sunsets all year round, it rarely rains on the gold coast and with grounds of over an acre the house is both private and quiet. The 1.2 acres of land on which the house sits gives you real privacy and an experience of living in Hawaii that cannot be experienced in the resort rentals.

Our home is a spacious four bedroom house with a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, laundry room, two en suite master a large third guest bathroom with a large shower. The house layout also is perfect for three couples, with the master suites being at either end of the house or for a family needing four bedrooms . The house is conveniently located in Kohala Estates three miles north of the small harbor town of Kawaihae and less than 35 miles north of Kona airport on the west coast of Big Island, a very easy drive north. The house is situated around 800 feet above sea level and benefits from onshore and offshore breezes that keep the house at perfect temperature range all year round; on average the sun shines 320 days a year. The breezes naturally cool the house but there are ceiling fans in bedrooms and living areas to ensure your comfort.
There are two master bedroom suites, both rooms have their own bathrooms, slider patio windows and private patio access and when you open your eyes each morning from your bed you have a wonderful view of the ocean and palm trees. The larger master bedroom has a King size bed with padded mattress, a master bathroom with a spa bath, a large separate shower and a large walk-in closet. There is also a flat screen TV and DVD. The 2nd master suite has a padded top Queen bed, a bathroom with a large shower with an ocean view. The third bedroom has a partial ocean view, palm trees and open countryside looking towards the tip of Haleakela on Maui. The third large bedroom is next door to the large family bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The 3rd bedroom has a Queen bed and a Twin bed, so the room works well for either a couple or for children. We also have a fourth study bedroom with a twin bed, so the home sleeps 8 very comfortably. Just like a hotel all the bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers.

This area is rightly called the gold coast, just a few minutes drive south are some of Big Island’s prestige hotels with beautiful beaches and facilities; all beaches in Hawaii are accessible to the public. We are approximately 10 minutes north of Hapuna Beach, one of Hawaii’s finest beaches. This area is a perfect base for your holiday with beautiful tropical beaches, water skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling, diving and kayaking all within an easy drive. There are a number of world class golf courses close by and this area is prime Humpback Whale watching territory between December and April. From the grounds you can see observatories on nearby Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano. Mauna Kea is the highest point in the Pacific Basin, and the highest island-mountain in the world; the lower slopes of Mauna Kea are popular for hunting, hiking, sightseeing and bird watching.

Kailani has been extensively refurbished and upgraded over the last year. The house is decorated in colors of the ocean and we hope you will enjoy the contemporary beach house style. The living room, separate dining area and kitchen all have direct wide ocean views, there is a full size well equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, the open plan kitchen has a breakfast bar that will easily accommodate four people. The living area has a flat screen TV if you can take your eyes off the ocean view; there is also cable TV and a library of DVDs and Wi-Fi. There are a number of Big Island guidebooks and cookery books if you need inspiration to try out some of the superb local food-or just put some fresh caught fish on the propane grill. A large 1200 square foot lanai runs along the back of the house facing the ocean so there is plenty of space for eating, entertaining, relaxing and stargazing.

There is a well equipped separate laundry room with a new Samsung front loading washing machine and dryer. Hawaii has the highest cost of electricity in the US and high water costs so if you visit our home you will see we have made every effort to keep our energy and water usage as efficient as possible.

We hope you will consider this your home -you are very welcome to use cooler chests, picnic backpacks, cooler bags, beach towels, beach chairs, beach mats etc stored in the entrance cupboard.

The house is non smoking, in common with most Hawaiian homes this is a shoe free zone so bring your flip flops, or slippers as they are called In Hawaii! We hope you find our home a clean and relaxing environment and that you will love Hawaii as much as we do. We are happy to share our local knowledge if you need help finding things, we are happy to recommend where to shop, eat, find farmer’s markets, where to sail or dance under the stars………or just stay at your Hawaiian home and enjoy another spectacular sunset.

Mahalo (thanks) for taking the time to read this description, a hui hou (see you soon)

WHALE WATCHING: From December to early May the humpback whales call Hawaii home. Whale-watching tours let you see Hawaii’s humpbacks for yourself. The road north to Hawi (Kamuela Highway) is also a great place to pull over and watch the whales. Roughly 6,000 to 8,000 humpback whales visit Hawaii each year and current studies may increase those estimates- there may never have been a better time to come and whale watch in Hawaii.
