Gated, Guarded Private Community in Kailua-Kona.
Welcome to Hale Hina - The Home of the Hawaiian Goddess of Sunrises, Sunsets, Coral Reefs, and the Moon! Featuring panoramic coastline views, an infinity pool, hot tub and a gourmet kitchen, this private residence, located in the gated and guarded Keauhou Estates community, in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, is the epitome of ALOHA living.
Relax into the embrace of the Hawaiian Goddess, Hina, when you step into the grand entryway through etched glass doors depicting gorgeous heliconia flowers and towering banana trees. This custom 2661 square foot, three bedroom, three bath hale has everything you need for a peaceful, reenergizing, private tropical island vacation.
Upon entering the expansive great room, the cathedral ceilings create a vast sense of space. Curl up on the cushy crescent moon couch and watch your favorite Blu Ray movie on the 60” flat screen with surround sound, or listen to tunes through the integrated sound system. Let the captivating view lure you through the two giant pocket doors onto the covered lanai, as Hale Hina seamlessly connects the indoors to the outdoors.
Grill some freshly caught fish, local grass-fed beef, or your favorite veggies (picked up at the Keauhou Farmers Market) at the convenient outdoor kitchen. The lanai features ample covered dining space for six people and an outdoor seating area for cocktails and conversation. Afternoons melt away in this peaceful setting where you can unwind in the hot tub or the infinity pool and your privacy is protected by the tropical landscaping and lava rock terracing.
The gourmet indoor kitchen is a chef’s dream with granite counters, cherry cabinets and all the tools you need to make a simple meal or an epicurean delight.
The spacious master suite features a king size bed, walk-in closet and large pocket doors that open to the lanai --revealing the soothing ocean views. Slide between the soft cool sheets after an evening soak in the hot tub, located just outside the bedroom. Unlike hotels and condos, Hale Hina’s pool and hot tub don’t have a closing time! The master bath includes a walk through marble shower concealed behind a glass etched ocean scene, Jacuzzi bathtub, a long granite counter with two sinks and a separate toilet room.
The second master suite includes a king bed, its own spacious bathroom with double sinks, a walk in shower, and outside access through a sliding glass door with a path to the pool area.
The third bedroom offers a queen bed and a convertible over-sized chair that cleverly disguises a regular twin mattress. A rainforest marble shower and travertine floors complete the guest bath located just down the hall.
Let the ocean breezes carry away your stress while you watch the whales and surfers frolic off the coast during the day. Marvel in the beauty of a perfect sunset as the stars begin to ignite the sky and you watch Hina weave her moonlight magic.
Welcome home to Hale Hina.

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.
Sallie Haws purchased this House in 2012
Why Sallie Haws chose Honalo
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 for the last 10 years. 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.

Hale Hina is the most beautiful home! We had everything plus more than we needed for our family vacation! The lanai was perfect for morning coffee and relaxing! The view was gorgeous! Ute (property manager) was very helpful! Sallie and family thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us and making our family vacation the best ever! Mahalo!!! ;)
You are very welcome, Debbie! We are so pleased that you didn't let the media's sensationalistic and dire coverage of Pele's latest power display on the lower far east side of the island stop you from having the best family vacation ever! Come back anytime! Aloha!
A lovely home!
Everything about Hale Hina is relaxed, open and enjoyable. We had a wonderful stay with our friends. The home is incredibly well appointed with thoughtful touches in each space. It is also in a spectacular location. We are already looking forward to our next stay! Mahalo!!!
Wonderful Family Spring Break
We stayed over Spring break. We had 8 of us 4 adults and 4 kids. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep and the 2 suites were a bonus. The kitchen and living area were large and decorated beautifully. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we might need. All of the bedrooms were spacious and the house was very clean.
We spent a ton of time in the pool and outdoor space. The VIEW, THE VIEW oh my gosh it's amazing. To sit on the patio or in the pool and look at the water made for wonderful days. The sunsets were beyond magical. Each day we couldn't believe our eyes to be in such a beautiful place. We really cannot wait to go back to paradise. The neighborhood was really nice with lots of well manicured plants and bushes.
The house is located in a great location to go south, north or across the island.
The property owner and manager were very easy to work with and always available if needed.
Stayed here in march 2018. Amazing place! Absolutely perfect! Jaw dropping views, beautiful home, Having the little shopping center less than a 2 minute drive was a delight as well. My only complaint was I couldn't keep my kids out of the pool :)
I love this home!
We have literally stayed in vrbo homes throughout the world ( homeschooled while living a year abroad 256 days and 19 countries). This is by far the best home and we could easily move in tomorrow and never leave. Thank you for making our Big Island experience so much better by having a beautiful and well laid out home for my crew of 7 to enjoy.
The Kraus family
Home away from home.
Based on your description and pictures of your home we had very high expectations . The property and amenities went well beyond our expectations. It is beautifully decorated and we loved the property manual (what we called the "bible") with instructions and helpful hints for everything. The kitchen and kitchenware was more than I have at home. The open wall to the lanai was great and allowed us to enjoy the weather; the pool and hot tub was great.
The lava is flowing into the ocean once again, and it is a once in a lifetime experience that shouldn't be missed. Plan a helicopter ride or a day excursion over to Hilo to catch a ride aboard the the Lava One from Lava Ocean Tours for an up close and personal view of the magnificence of Pele.
