About Sallie Haws
Hale Hina is owned by two sisters, Sallie Haws and Amy Haws Peck, who grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. Sallie worked for 26 years at the family company, Haws Corporation, a drinking fountain and emergency equipment manufacturer that was sold to the cousins in 2011. Sallie now manages the Haws Family Office. Sallie, her husband Jim Bowers (Hale Hina's official photographer), and her two children Marquise and Terry Van Tassel live in Las Vegas, Nevada. Amy and her husband Dennis Peck live in Escondido, CA. Amy owns and operates The Goddess Studio that helps empower women through dance and ceremony; Amy is also the artist of two original flower paintings on display inside Hale Hina.

Why Sallie Haws chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
The Haws Family has loved the Big Island for many years. Our parents spent 2-4 weeks a year at the Kona Village Resort for over 30 years until it was closed due to the February 2011 tsunami. Amy and Dennis spent their honeymoon at Kona Village as well. Sallie and Jim traveled to Kona every other year with the kids during the first decade of the new millennium. We picked Hale Hina for its single story, 3 bedroom layout, it's amazing view and the fact that it had air conditioning and a hot tub. We realized that we didn't need to be on the ocean, we just wanted to SEE the ocean. The house was owned and built by a couple who lived there as their primary residence and therefore put great energy and many special touches into their dream home.

Best experience ever! My whole family enjoyed the house and of course the island. Exceeded all expectations!
Fantastic Vacation Rental!!
We were two families who stayed in this home over the Christmas break. It was fantastic! A beautiful home that was well cared for and decorated so that you definitely felt like you were in Hawaii. Communication with the owner was great, and leading up to and during the rental we heard regularly from the property manager checking to see if we had any questions or needs. We have rented many vacation homes with our family and we all thought that this was the most organized one we have ever been in with respect to information provided about the property itself. Such simple but helpful info like having fan and light switches labelled, kitchen labels so that dishes etc, were put in the proper places, and thorough orientation binders on the property itself, the island, and the neighbourhood. Neighborhood was peaceful and quiet, and the ocean view over the infinity pool was a favourite late afternoon activity watching the sunset. Hale Hina was heaven :)
It's hard to imagine how this vacation rental could be any better. The incredible view of the ocean from the lanai was breathtaking. The home was beautifully furnished and the kitchen very well stocked. The home is spacious making it perfect for family gatherings, and we could hardly tear ourselves away from the lanai, pool, and hot tub. This is the perfect tranquil setting to experience all that the island of Hawaii has to offer.
The house is beautiful. Ute was awesome. We hope to be back soon. The feral cats hanging around was nice as I miss my own cat when I travel.
We just left the house today and boy were we sad to go! The house was very clean with everything you would need for a beach stay (cooler, chairs, abundance of towels, beach toys) and we donated three new boogie boards for the next family. Kitchen was well stocked for those that cook...we didn’t. Pool and lanai are the best part of the home and where we spent the majority of our time. The sunsets are jaw-dropping and we made sure to never miss one! Had a small glitch with the air conditioning but Ute, Steve and the owner, Jim, were all over it. They had it back up and running the next day. We loved the kitties who came to visit (always outdoors and they never attempted to go inside the house). Bonus was the super comfortable master bed and soft bedding. Towels were new, white and very fluffy. The reviews don’t lie on this one folks, don’t hesitate to book it! Thank you to Ute, Steve, Jim and Sallie for keeping the home impeccable and for sharing it with us!
