About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

We love Koihale, like she's part of our Ohana. In her we feel the spirit of aloha that is the embodiment of Hawaii.

Koihale or Koi House, was built in 1961 by the Big Island's most famous architect, Lucky Bennett, and was named by its first owner, to celebrate the carefree spirit of the Koi whom he loved.

Koihale is an exquisite 4 bedroom 3.5 bath gated home, found in the small beach community of Kahalu'u beach, in Kona. She embodies the iconic and livable Lucky Bennett design. Large flowing Koi ponds sets the ambiance as you walk by the natural stone decked swimming pool nestled in the folds of this home making it a mini resort of its own.

Koihale showcases Lucky's luxurious Hawaiian 'Island style living' at the beach park at Kahalu'u. This small beach community of Kahalu'u Beach lots, is just a short stroll to the surf, and a few minutes drive to the center of Kailua-Kona. It's a dreamy lifestyle for beachcombers, golfers, surfers or artists. This area is steeped in Hawaiian history and is presently seeing a revival in culture, dance, and music!

Koihale captures seaside Kona style and utilizes the mild climate & famous Kona Trade Winds. The timeless design allows you to open the many sliding wooden doors and windows exposing the natural beauty of Hawaii and more importantly utilizes the cooling tropical airflow. Outside this beauty is everywhere - in each angle and in all directions.

Complete with palms & Plumeria; the incredibly generous use of Koa & Mango wood throughout; various cupolas; cool tile floors; the upstairs sunset lanai; the sliding glass walls and doors, and open, indoor-outdoor layout; Koi pond and waterfall gardens - all create a peaceful ambiance that casts the charm.

We love waking every day to the gentle sound of Koi pond's waterfalls – doves & myriad colored finches splashing about at the waters edge. The ponds - framed by lava rock walls, surrounded by tropical palms & fragrant Plumeria - cradle the Koi that swim playfully through the water. Beyond them lay Kahalu'u Bay, teaming with Honus, Parrot Fish, Black & Yellow Tang, & brilliantly colored coral reef.

Whether you've come to Koihale as a retreat from “an extremely hectic life” or just to enjoy the natural beauty of the Big Island, we know that you will find the Spirit of Aloha here within our beautiful Koihale.

We hope that you come and enjoy her as much as she enjoys giving to you.

E komo mai, Nou ka hale - Welcome, our house is yours.

This is a non-smoking, no pets property. There is a 5 night minimum stay/10 during Ironman & Christmas season. Hawaii Tax ID: 064-608-4608-01

Kona Coast Vacations

About: Aloha and welcome to the Big Island. We are thankful to Hawaii and its peoples for allowing us to work and play on this great island. Kona Coast Vacations manages over 170 condos, homes and estates along the leeward (dry and sunny) side of the Big Island ( this island is named Hawaii, same name as the State). We are located right in Kailua Kona which is about 10 minutes south of the KOA (Kona) international airport. Most people include Kailua Kona, Keauhou, Kahaluu, and Holualoa, under the umbrella of the name Kona. We also have team members living near the resort area ( about 25 minutes north of the airport) which include Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, Hali'i Kai, Waikoloa Beach Resort (near the coast), Waikoloa Village (up mountain, about 15 minutes from the coast), etc. Our team of inspectors check the property before your arrival, after you depart, and we inspect the cleaners. If something is amiss, please let us know immediately on arrival and we will address your concerns ASAP. We are open seven days a week to assist guests and owners. We offer a concierge service, we have maps and recommendations on our web site and are here to answer your questions. Kona Coast Vacations has been rated excellent by Trip Advisor in 2013 and 2014, and it appears Trip Advisor only offers ratings now, and we are sitting at 4.5/5.0 based on all the reviews since 2009. We were voted the "Best Vacation Rental Agency" for 2015 and 2016- Best of Hawai'i - Lei Niho Palaoa Awards. We credit these great ratings to our reservations, maintenance and inspection team. Whether you stay with us or with another host, we hope you enjoy the Big Island of Hawaii and experience the Aloha Spirit. Please feel free to utilize our website, links and to engage Kona Concierge for booking any of your activities. Aloha and Mahalo The team at Kona Coast Vacations
