About the Property

3 Bedroom Suite, 3 Bath, Hawaiian Beach House; or a single master suite rental

Kona Hale Pili is a craftsman's masterpiece and a modern adaptation of the traditional Hawaiian pili grass covered house. Originally constructed in 1972, Kona Hale Pili has been totally renovated and appointed with elegant wood and stone accents accommodating modern amenities and a environmentally conscious low voltage lighting system and point source hot water. Kona Hale Pili is comprised of three separate buildings with soaring vaulted ceilings that are centrally connected by an open air covered lanai. A open air uncovered lanai and lush tropical landscaping adjoin the central lanai. Located direct oceanfront at the north end of Kahaluu Bay, unobstructed views are offered from Kahaluu Beach to Kaiwi Point at the end of Kailua Bay. Enjoy watching the surfers at the Kahaluu surf break, reef fish and turtles, spinner dolphins and breaching whales, in season, and spectacular green flash sunsets. Kahaluu Bay is accessible adjacent to Kona Hale Pili for experienced water persons, or by an easy five minute walk to Kahaluu Beach. Kahaluu Bay is renowned for its plentiful tropical fish and green sea turtles. Kona Hale Pili is now available as a vacation rental. Take the virtual tour to fully experience the property.

Kona Hale Pili is a modern adaptation of the traditional Hawaiian house. Hawaiian open air living at its best with louvered windows. Air conditioning is not needed as the diurnal breeze from the ocean during the day and the mountains in the evening provide natural air circulation. Ceiling fans throughout provide gentle air circulation in the bedroom suites.

Spend a relaxing day with an unobstructed view of the ocean for exceptional dolphin and whale watching. You will also have the prime location for watching the surfers at the surf break.

Dining, groceries and shopping are all conveniently located nearby.

For experienced water persons only, the ocean is accessible from the adjacent lava point. Easy ocean access is available at Kahaluu Beach.

We look forward to having you as our guests!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

Why the Owner Chose Keauhou, Kahaluu-Keauhou, HI, USA:
We have been vacationers and part time residents of Hawaii for over thirty years. Our travels have taken us to many beautiful tropical places, but Kona captivated us. We found Kona Hale Pili in need of some TLC and embarked on what has become a stewardship to return the property to a condition suitable for its unique location. We enjoyed the six year renovation journey creating a craftsman's dream. You will appreciate it when you see it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quite simply, the oceanfront location could not be created today due to building setbacks and zoning constraints.
