Homes Over Kona:  Property Description

Enjoy resort living on hillside slopes at a perfect elevation. Aromatic tropical breezes, spring-like temperatures, and birds singing in this sub-climate are to be sure to tickle your senses. Not too hot, not too cold, Homes Over Kona are located centrally in the historic, quaint, artsy coffee town above Kona called Holualoa. Only 10 min. away, Kona’s shoreline beaches, downtown, and neighboring Captain Cook Town are all very conveniently located.

Homes Over Kona is a complex of four private homes of different sizes and this particular listing is for the Tree House Hale (2A). Description of this unit is listed in detail below. To rent the whole property exclusively please visit vrbo #482045 or homeaway #482045vb.
This complex is newly built (2013) and furnished modern-tropical, with an Asian-Hawaiian flair. The 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa is communal. Exclusive use of the Private Infinity Edge Pool with Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River is reserved for the main Grandview Hale.

The pools are all solar heated and designed to feel as if you are sitting in natural Hawaiian waters. Both the private Main pool and Waterfall Lagoon pool boast deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and giant lava beds to lay and relax on. The Waterfall Lagoon has a 15 foot waterfall drop that trickles and streams down creating an ambiance that only the sounds of water can offer.

The gardens are abundant with walking paths full of fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Yes, you can even pick and make your own lei. Majestic Monkey Pod trees canopy over the property and provide perfect shade for reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock. Fruit trees are everywhere and you are welcome to pick what you can eat. Fruits on the property include plum, serinam cherries, guava, lychee, mangosteen, rambutan, mango, papaya, star fruit, pomegranate, avocados, coffee, many kinds of citris, and our secret miracle berry. Guests will also receive a bag of our local Kona coffee that is grown, picked and roasted right here in Holualoa.

Homes Over Kona is a unique property designed to keep you in tune with the aloha spirit of Hawaii. We want to share our air, our fauna, our wildlife. We want to welcome you to our homes.

TREE HOUSE HALE: Unit Description

Situated high up amongst the trees, we call this the Tree House Hale.  Second to the main Grandview Hale, this is our largest home. It has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably, but can accommodate 8 (additional fee).

After reading a book or just relaxing on our screened-in lanai, step into your huge, open-plan living and dining area. The dining table comfortably seats 6 and there is a bar counter for an additional 3 seats. The living room is furnished with ultra-comfortable leather couches, and a large flat screen HDTV offering Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, etc. It’s perfect for unwinding after a busy day on the boat or at the golf course. Expansive 10’ sliding glass doors on both sides of the living room offer tropical breezes, country views, and a feeling of openness connecting you to the beauties of Hawaii.

The kitchen boasts mahogany custom cabinets with granite countertops and a bar top for a casual snack or chat. Inside the cupboards you'll find a complete set of cookware, dishes, and utensils, to complement the host of time-saving appliances: microwave, blender, coffeemaker, rice maker and dishwasher (to name a few). Even if you love our kitchen, we also provide a BBQ in the garden so you can watch our fabulous sunsets turn to dusk.

This home has a Master Bedroom (king bed) with connecting bathroom and Jacuzzi jet tub. The sink is separate to the bathing and restroom area so that each individual can have their privacy. The second bedroom has a queen bed and third bedroom has a pair of twin beds. Each bedroom is suited with well designed bedding. This house can accommodate an additional 2 persons with portable futons or beds to be set up in the living areas or on the screen enclosed lanai (deck). The second bathroom also offers the sink separate to the bathing and restroom area for maximum efficiency.

Other amenities include a large laundry washer and dryer along with beach towels and extra pillows and linens. You can enjoy complimentary high speed wireless internet for all of your electronics as well as access to a complimentary Netflix account where you will find a vast array of movies for both children and adults. Cable TV is not offered in this unit, however internet TV is installed for movies, youtube, news, sports, etc. A sports gym only 10 minutes away offers day or short stay passes which give you full access to their facility at a minimal charge.
This particular unit shares the use of the 15' Waterfall Lagoon Pool and Sports Massager Hot Spa. (The Private Infinity Edge Pool, Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River are reserved for the main Grandview Hale). All pools are solar heated boasting deep blue waters to match the Hawaiian oceans and designed with giant lava beds to lay and relax on. Waterfalls trickle down the sides and above your heads offering the true ambiance of vacationing in Hawaii.

This 2 acre property has over 2000 feet of walking paths and country roads to explore. If you look carefully, you may also find a mini lava tube. Gardens are full of Hawaiian fragrance, proud of our native fauna, colorful local plants and sweet smelling lei flowers. Available are lei making tools, suggestions and instruction guides to show you how. Yes, you can pick and make your own sweet smelling leis to wear to dinner. Fruit trees are everywhere and when ripe, you are welcome to pick what you can eat. Coffee plants abound offer you the true feel of a coffee farm. Reading a book or taking a nap in a hammock is made perfect under the Majestic Monkey Pod trees which canopy the property and provide perfect shade. The 1000 foot elevation sub climate introduces comfortable breezes and temperatures specifically experienced in this Holualoa area and nothing like the sticky hot found along the shoreline or the cold found at the much higher elevations. 1000 feet is the perfect elevation. You found the Best.

The only active volcano and endless number of glorious hiking trails await you including the famed Waipio Valley and even a quickie hike just a short drive away. During certain times of the year, you may even experience snow on the caps of Mauna Kea as you capture unforgettable sunsets and stargaze the most glorious night skies imaginable.

Lucky you, our property is right in the middle of it all.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: designed by the owners who fell in love with the land and built the homes to represent Hawaii with minimal disturbance to the 2 acres it sits on. The owners careers are in the art, design and event fields and these attributes are made evident in the homes offered. The colors, themes, and landscaping to the homes compliment the nature which abounds us. Black and red for lava. Green and browns for nature and deep blues represent our oceans. Genuine stone and woods are used to finish and furnish these homes. The entertainment areas are just that. The owners specifically designed each area to entertain your senses. TV's are large and lay flat against the walls. Spaces are open to enhance family communication and scenic viewing pleasure. The owners also have a love for cooking and this is evident in the design of the kitchens (especially with focus on the Grandview Hale). All kitchens are fitted with genuine granite countertops, real wood cabinets, and a true focus on making cooking a convenient experience. Adventure is what brought these owners to the Big Island and perfection is what made them settle in the town above Kona, Holualoa. The Big Island has the best of everything. Almost every climate is attainable here ranging from snow capped mountain tops to tropical rain forests and hot sandy beaches. The owners love diving, and it doesn't get better than this anywhere else in the islands of Hawaii. Hiking too, is a favorite, and these owners have explored many. They have left a suggestion book with details so that you can find children friendly beaches and trails as well as some of the more challenging ones.
