About the property

Private Estate, 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 13-22)

Hale Lani (Heavenly Home) is one of the Big Island's nicest luxury vacation rentals. Boasting complete privacy, the ideal elevation, and spectacular views, the property is perfect for larger groups. The 5,400SF home, with living room, gourmet kitchen, dining room, family room, 5 bedrooms plus bedroom/study, 2 master suites, and 6 baths, can accommodate up to 22 guests in comfort and style. Also discounts are available for smaller groups.

The home is completly furnished with all the extras and amenities needed for truly comfortable living. All the sleeping areas have TV/DVD's and the family/media/game room has a full size pool table, a game table and a really big flat screen TV/DVD and 1000 classic DVD collection. There is cable, internet and wi-fi throughout.

Lush landscaping abounds and the large yard features a resort style pool, with swim up palapa wet bar and attached sandy bottom wading pool. An adjacent spa can easily accomodate up to 8.

This property is close to everything including the airport, downtown Kailua Kona, Honokohau Harbor, shopping (Costco is 3 minutes away), several beaches, golf courses and all the Big Island activities you can imagine.

We like to think of Hale Lani as 'A little bit of Heaven without the long term commitment.'

Please note that this is a multi-story home and while family friendly, is not child proof or handicapped accessible.

A fabulous spring break vacation with 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights with 4 adults and 6 children. This home is large enough and designed in a manner that allowed the adults and kids to have good separation to make for a great vacation. The kitchen is large and very well equipped with everything needed to prepare every meal. We spent most days at a beach and the house has plenty of towels and beach toys to bring along. There are enough boogie boards for every kid we had. It is a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood, with the exception of the roosters that were very noisy around the area every morning pre-dawn. Anytime we had a question or little issue, Richard was extremely available and helpful. Whenever we return to Kona, we will try to rent this home again.

Great house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family gathering and the house was a perfect fit. We loved the outdoor pool/hot tub and the balcony with beautiful views. The house had everything we needed to cook, eat, drink, dine, etc. Great place!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a family vacation with my children and a few grandchildren for a total of 14 ages from 14 to 66 this house was perfect for all,from the gourmet kitchen with every thing you needed to cook for large groups, that we utilized for almost all meals to the pool which was hard to get anyone away from.The pictures and description do not do it justice,location was awesome close to everything, and you could not ask for anyone more accommodating than Richard,very easy to work with from reserving it to departure.Thank you Richard for helping me to make this an awesome family vacation. By the way the screens are hard to see at various times of the day and if you are not use to them you may find yourself running into them a few times.

Our Family Reunion, 10 people from all over, SUPER Fun, great home, GREAT elevation.

  • 5 of 5

I live here in Kailua Kona. Richard is well known, for his hospitality, reputation as a property manager extraordinaire. We were able to view this property earlier in the year, and choose it for our family reunion in late September this year. The second time when entering the property with the family, to our "home away from home" with the fam., was fantastic, to say the least. I was so happy we chose this home to rent for 9 adults, and one "teenager." This home is huge and clean. The kitchen was fantastic. Just take care that you do not over stuff the fridge, it is such a struggle to keep things cold in Hawaii. Yes, you will have to make ice runs if you are like our family, and like ice cold drinks, the Costco, or the convenience store is minutes away, seriously, super close. Great location, safe. This home is super quiet, private, and has so much to offer, besides the resort type pool, with swim up bar, half fridge, really? oh yeah!!. The outside lighting, the fruiting trees, the beautiful lawn. Pool, movies, surround sound, fans, pool table, the lani's, . Beautiful sunsets!! Torches, recessed lighting, fire pit, nice dining room, beautiful bedrooms, pull out beds, laundry, pool toys, hot tub, wow, etc,,,,, Nice value. I would love to rent this house again. I would recommend this to everyone!! At this elevation, mosquitoes are not an issue. The geckos are the usual for this area, as well as ants, they are not an issue, nor are other bugs. It is hot during the end of Sept., can get to the upper 90's. Very decent at night to sleep with the fans, and nice during the day, being hot. No air cond. at this time was not a problem for us. Highly recommended property.

Amazing Family Reunion Trip to Hale Lani

  • 5 of 5

Our families rented this house for a week long family reunion with siblings/ families. We had 10 guests from 12 years to 65 years old plus my sister and DH who lived a few minutes away visited often. The house and location was perfect. Very easy to find and close to everything with a few minutes drive via car. The house has two levels - sort of an inverted house. The drive and top entrance comes into the living room or the kitchen door. With the master and another King size bedroom on either side of this level plus a futon room perfect for one adult or child. The lower level had a 3 single bedroom, A large pull out sleeper sofa and a separate queen sized bed type apartment with another kitchen. The second refrigerator came in very handy for our food storage.

We cooked several meals at the house and grilled on the gas grill on the lani by the kitchen. The pool was bigger than I thought it would be and even the sandy area was nicer than I expected. Everyone loved the large round hot tub too! We all fit in the pool and had a ball tossing around balls and playing with the included pool toys. The Tiki hut at the pool had a small fridge. To get to the pool you go one flight of stairs down to the grassy yard. Lots of room and very quiet!.

But hands down the best feature of the house is the balconies, namely the top balcony with a wonderful view of the ocean. Nice breeze and cooler temps than the coast. With two large tables and seating for 12 plus the bar area and 4 padded chairs it was great to gather here to eat, and visit each day. Plus the stars at night and the moon were outstanding! Could not have been better! I was worried it would be too hot to sleep- but even with days in the upper 80's the nights were perfect with the ceiling fans in the bedrooms.

Everything was clean- this is the tropics so there was the odd bug or two- but sitting on the balcony at night with the lights on under the eaves we did not have issues with mosquitos etc. Loved watching the geckos ( walking upsidedown) gather around the lights above us waiting for their bug meals. So cute! Hawaiian cardinals came to the balcony looking for some bread hand outs each day. A flock of birds roosted next to the house each evening. Loved the sound of the birds each morning too. A Rooster and his girls was often sighted around the property.

This house was so economical for a large group- better than a resort! Thanks Richard for all your help! We loved this house!!

A True Hawaiian family reunion before a loved one passed

  • 5 of 5

NO. No one died here. This was a place of reunion and solitude for immediate family members for ONE LAST MEMORY..... AND So... Everything was beautiful, practical and more than accommodating - from check in to check out. Richard, my contact and I believe may be the owner, is a humanitarian with an honest business sense that in this day and age, is quite hard to find. Our stay was very sweet, and Hale Lani will FOREVER be in our hearts for the memories made. This is a place that is NOT to be ignored. This needs to be at the TOP of every vacation rental list when pondering places to stay in the magnificent island of Hawai'i, home of the active volcanoes and every other magic that the other Hawaiian Islands provide. Thank you, Richard, and those who helped us find comfort and solace in our stay. From the bottom of our hearts, Me Ke Aloha Pumehana, ame Malama Pono!!! Sweet Aloha from the nine of Us Kahumoku(s): Mervin, Jr., Emmajean Umauma, Kahealani, Keikimakamae, Ali'ilaniloa, Ekolu, Lahela, Keli'i, and Puanani Kahumoku.
