About the Property

Grandview Hale: Situated On Top of Property

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 Grandview Hale (1A). 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 this 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 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 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.

GRANDVIEW HALE: Unit Description

The largest of the units is the Grandview Hale.  4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 comfortably, however 4 more persons w futons could be set up in the living area (additional fee).

Every inch of this home is designed with exquisite taste with a focus on Japanese design with local elements of Hawaii. You enter through the 'genkan', a beautifully designed Japanese entry used for the removal of shoes and quiet space prior to entering the main areas. Take a few steps up to the living room or in the opposite direction, step down into the kitchen. From the kitchen you then take a few steps back up into the living room to complete the full circle. This design was inspired by a famous Japanese architect, Tomoe Sugiura.

The living room is grand with a showy 22' media wall and gigantic 70' flat screen HDTV for theater style viewing. TV offers 800 Cable channels including high definition package and sports package as well as an internet connection introducing Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, etc. Complimentary Netflix allows for a generous variety of movies. Eucalyptus solid hardwood flooring, ultra-comfortable leather sofas, and high ceilings add to the grandiose living space. A genuine wood koa table centers the formal dining area. Seating up to 8, this dining area is located to the rear of the living room with tall view windows. Large windows found on every wall of this main room, including expansive 8’ sliding glass doors on both sides, offer tropical breezes, country views, and a feeling of openness connecting you to the beauties of Hawaii.

The kitchen is without a doubt the center of attention to this home. Curvy custom granite tops represent the flowing hot red magma, walls are tiled with true lava pavers, and floors introduce true hawaiian river pebbles to the mix of visual delight. Frameless, modern cabinetry design is sleek with automatic features that open the upper doors with a touch of a button. Stainless steel appliances include a double oven, 4 door refrigerator/freezer, built-in microwave, and dishwasher. Top-of-the-line 36' Thermador induction cooktop with a telescopic downdraft vent allowing for the most efficient and clean cooking available. The 45' professional sink makes prepping a breeze. A second bar sink placed perfectly for prepping offers a perfect position for the assistance chef. Those who love to cook will appreciate all of these fantastic features. The island granite top is literally a full slab of exotic genuine red granite and sits 5 on the lower portion and another on the higher deck. A separate 42' high bar counter seats an additional 4 persons and has an internet connected HDTV for watching television or 'You Tubing' your favorite recipe. You'll find a complete set of cookware, dishes, and utensils, to complement the host of time-saving appliances: blender, coffeemaker, juicer, rice maker, electric grill, and ice cream maker (to name a few). Even if you love our kitchen, we also provide a BBQ on the patio so you can watch our fabulous sunsets turn to dusk.

The Master Bedroom (king) opens on to the upper lanai via a sliding door offering a grand view over the pool and much of the property offering a quiet place to relax. Also a flat screen TV is available in the master. The connecting master bathroom boasts an open air shower and deep Jacuzzi jet tub sunken floor level like a Japanese Ofuro. The bathing and shower area have large windows to compliment Ofuro in nature, however privacy is enabled with bamboo blinds. Floating cabinets, his & her sinks, private restroom with sliding door, real wood countertops, and pebble laid floors are all components of the fabulous Japanese design.

A second bedroom also opens up to the upper lanai with the same grand view. It has a queen bed with 2 additional windows over looking the center lanai and kitchen area. The third bedroom, also with a queen bed, is fashioned in hot pink and zebra pattern,…perfect for girls or anyone with such a fashionable flair. The fourth bedroom painted in blue has twin bunk beds and reserved for kids,…or at least the young at heart. Each bedroom sleeps 2 persons comfortably.

The hallway bathroom is also designed artistically with mosaics made by sea glass and custom hand blown glass in the shapes of jellyfish. The his and hers vessel sinks and granite countertops are located on separate walls opposite each other and divided from the bathing and restroom area so that bathing individuals can have their privacy as others are getting ready for the day. Let your days drift away in the luxurious jacuzzi jetted deep bath with granite surround and lava tiles.
The Infinity Edge Pool with Massager Jetted Hot Spa and Pebble River are for your private usage (the Grandview Hale guests). Upon return from a day at the beach, there is direct access through the main gate that leads to an outdoor hot shower for rinsing off. Over a few step stones and you will find yourself on a large deck and playroom furnished with sofas, chairs and loungers to relax as others enjoy these gorgeous waters. The pool represents Hawaii with it's deep blue oceans, free flowing lava formations, lava beds to lie on, shallow pebble river for young kids to splash in, and best of all, the very large Massager Jetted Hot Spa designed with a custom lounger seat, benches and beds to relax on, and variety of jets, one of which will be perfectly suited for you. All water play is viewed conveniently from both lanais as well as the playroom which is furnished with a large flat HDTV with internet and a restroom for convenience. This private area, reserved only for the Grandview Hale guests is laid out with dotted lines on the pictorial map. Although private, we urge guests to respect the hours of 'open pool' for the sake of the other vacationing guests and neighbors.

Other amenities include a large laundry washer and dryer, beach towels, extra pillows and linens. You can enjoy complimentary high speed wireless internet for all of your electronics. Cable TV is offered in 4 separate rooms. The Sports Package is available from the Media Wall in the Living Room, however internet TV is also installed on each for movies, youtube, news, sports, etc. A sports gym is only 10 minutes away and offers day or short stay passes which give you full access to their facility at a minimal charge. However, there is also a single bench with weights for the quick workout right here on the upper lanai deck.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: These homes were 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 businesses 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.
