About the property

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, 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.

Sallie Haws purchased this house in 2012

Why Sallie Haws chose Kona Coast

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 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.

What makes this house unique

Some of the most unique attributes of Hale Hina have already been mentioned. Additional benefits include an on-island property manager/concierge who is available to help make your vacation exceed your expectations. In addition to personalized check-ins, arrival groceries, housekeeping needs, chef or catering services are some of the luxuries she offers for an additional charge. German and Japanese language translation can also be accommodated.

This is definitely our favorite vacation property, completely as advertised with attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

It was a privilege to return to this beautiful property. We continue to appreciate the owner as well as local on-site management help given to us under unexpected circumstances. We appreciated new updates within the property and the standard with which the property is held to. The property is second to none and we can only hope to be able to some day return again for another holiday.

We could not have been more impressed with our stay at Hale Hina. The property is beautiful, relaxing, and extremely comfortable. With four adults and an infant, we could not have asked for a better place to stay while in Hawaii for 10 days. The location was perfect for us and it was very easy to navigate to different parts of the island without being far from Kailua. We loved it so much we have already booked ourselves a return trip next year. If that doesn't speak volumes then I don't know what else would. It was perfect.

Perfect! Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We certainly made the right decision when we chose Hale Hina. From the beginning Sallie was very responsive and accommodating. Her priority is that guest enjoy the experience of Hale Hina. The house is beautiful with lots of interesting art work and artifacts. It's inviting. It's comfortable. It's homey. We felt at home as soon as we walked in. The outdoor living area was relaxing and therapeutic with lots of beautiful native plants. The pool was the perfect temperature. The only negative was the day came when we had to leave. But, we will be back.

Just like home, except with a view of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We've rented homes across the US, Hale Hina was easily the best experience we've had. It began with the immediate and frequent communication from the owner, and property managers. Upon arrival at the property Ute and Steve Jones, the property managers greeted us, and provided a brief but thorough orientation of the home. The home has everything you'll need to prepare great meals and be comfortable. We went to Costco and target both 20 minutes away to stock up for out stay. The Haws also label each of the many lights switches and also the places where every item should be stored. Directions for the coffee maker, and other appliances are either in the orientation binder or taped on the cabinets. Great idea that others should do. I was especially happy with the sharpness of the knives. This was among the many example of attention to detail they deliver. The views were outstanding, culminating with nightly sunsets right out of a post card. We'll be back.

Beautiful, house and location

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, going back again in 2017. Trying to plan a family reunion at the house in 2018. Close to all the activities we did and we only ate out once at the Kona Hotel, it was average. The food we cooked (The boys) was incredible, we bought fresh fish and steaks at the Local Costco. Happy hour everyday at the pool. We had a great time. We traveled in March 2014 but it won't let me put that date in.

Hale Hina is the best!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at beautiful Hale Hina! We spent much of our time enjoying the lanai and pool area (especially the fantastic sunsets), but also enjoyed our time inside with the doors wide open with the screen doors closed to keep the bugs out. The home is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could want. Hale Hina is just as wonderful as the photos show, the house was spotlessly clean, and house manager Ute was very accommodating. We'll recommend this home to anyone considering a stay on the Big Island. Our favorites on the island: Kona Inn for dinner, Volcanoes National Park, star gazing at the Mauna Kea Observatory, and Hapuna for a spectacular day at the beach.
