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 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 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.

A perefrct winter get-away for couples

  • 5 of 5

We planned this trip with our dear friends over a year ago and it was worth the wait! The highlights and things we enjoyed most about this house were -

-The view is incredible and private. You could spend all your days on the patio or in the pool & hot tub looking at the view and listening to the birds.

-The house is close to everything - the airport, shops, restaurants, movies, coffee/tea, gas station, and of course the beaches, sea excursions, and beautiful drive along the coast.

- The house is equipped with everything you need and properly labeled with plenty of information.

- The bed rooms (all with king beds which is hard to find) are situated in opposite sides of the house which is great for adult couples.

- It is in a private, secure and beautifully manicured development. We loved that it was away from the crowds but close to everything.

Don’t pass up the opportunity to rent this gem located in a perfect spot on the big island!

Second time - just amazing

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time staying at Hale Hina and it was just as fantastic as the first. We could not recommend staying here enough. From the location and neighborhood, to the cleanliness and comfort of the home itself, we loved it. We are already booked for next year; it was that great.

Our group of 6 just just spent a week in this house and loved it. The pool, hot tub and outdoor space was incredible. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and made cooking enjoyable!! We did hire J & K Catering to cook dinner for us one night and it was amazing!! If you rent this house, you will not be disappointed!!!

Heavenly Hale Hina

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? How about at Aloha! This house is perfect for spending quality time with loved ones. The layout is so conducive to togetherness and sunset for us, became an evening family event. The home is exquisitely furnished and so comfortable. The truth is, we spent most of our time in the kitchen and lanai. The kitchen is a cook's dream and even if you're cooking or cleaning-up after a meal (best served on the lanai, watching the sunset), you are not removed from the everyone else. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and if it weren't for hopping out of bed everyday to spend time drinking coffee and enjoying the breezes and the sunrise, I easily could have stayed in the quiet comfort of our bed. The pool is beautiful and our kids spent hours playing together - it was a miracle. The view is unparalleled and possibly the best on the entire island. The house is very organized and labeled, which took away the stress of trying to remember where everything goes. There are three binders which provide instructions for appliance use, local information and house information. The property manager is super attentive, gracious, responsive and communicates very well. The house is conveniently located with a shopping center at the bottom of the hill. Grocery store, pizza place, shave ice/bubble tea and Ali'i drive and beaches just a short drive away. The community is gated with a manned security gatehouse and while I'm not sure I would have felt unsafe without it, not being local and really not knowing, it was an added bonus. Nobody is allowed in the neighborhood who is not supposed to be there. The house is stunning and really, the quality time we had as a family was priceless. I can't say enough about Hale Hina, except that my whole family hopes that we'll spend time there again soon. Mahalo, Hale Hina, we miss you.

Stunning home that will exceed expectations

  • 5 of 5

This home, while impressive in the listing photos, is even more impressive in person. I'm a huge Tommy Bahama fan and I'm pretty sure Tommy was somehow involved with the interior decoration. The place is beautiful!

We have stayed at several VRBO properties over the years and what impressed me most with this property is the attention to detail. If you are a foodie, the cookware is excellent. The property owners have clearly paid attention to what you might want or need when staying here and have accommodated nicely. The property manager checked in on us two or three times during our week's stay and, while we couldn't think of anything we would need, was more than gracious to make sure our experience was beyond expectation.

I strongly encourage you to stay at Hale Hina. Great home and great service!

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.
