Please note, the nightly rate varies with the number of people staying this lovely home. Hale Wailani is an elegant home built with handcrafted quality and style, brilliantly designed for maximum outdoor living and gorgeous views of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, the Kohala Mountains and Waialea Bay from nearly everywhere in the house. With 3,700-square-feet over two stories (plus an additional 2,000-square-feet of covered lanai), this spacious house has four bedrooms, three baths, and two living rooms, making it ideal for larger gatherings of families or friends.
Situated at the top of a small, very private enclave, Hale Wailani is just a two-minute walk down a nearby foot path to a small, sandy beach decorated by nature with bleached driftwood sculpture against black lava outcroppings. It’s a stunning spot, perfect for snorkeling, sunbathing or enjoying shade and views of Maui and the Kohala Mountains. For the adventurous, you’ll also be just steps from the Ala Kahakai Trail, the pathway of the ali’i (royalty), and now part of the National Park Service Trail System.
Wailani at Waialea Bay is a masterpiece of site planning and house design, providing seamless open-air lifestyle, maximum privacy and spectacular views mauka (mountain) to makai (sea). Upstairs and down, there are breathtaking views of Waialea Bay, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and the Kohala Mountains.
On both levels of this two-story home, covered lanai run the full length of the house with multiple sliding doors providing indoor/outdoor living throughout. A graceful pool echoes the shape of the house, while rock walls shelter the grassy yard and the personal gardens of the master bedroom suite and first-floor guest bedroom.
Hale Wailani is just south of Hapuna State Beach, rated one of the best beaches in the world, and just north of the delightful beach community of Puako. Enjoy the peace and privacy of Wailani, along with proximity to world-class golf, dining and resorts.
At the front entrance of the home, you are greeted by Birds of Paradise, cobalt Blue Ginger and colorful Croton plantings, while songbirds lend a musical note to the tropical landscape. Inside, the elegant black-and-white kitchen has granite countertops, Samoan hardwood floors, a large pantry and breakfast table and chairs. Sliding glass doors bring the outdoors in, and inlaid-rock lanai matches the flooring of the full bath/powder room just off the kitchen.
A very spacious living/dining room provides views of the Pacific and the Kohala Mountains. Here, too, sliders open to the lanai, yard and pool, which are sheltered by a rock wall and tall gate. Choose to dine casually outdoors (a grill stands ready nearby) at the patio dining table or more elegantly indoors at the glass dining table. Wicker furniture with glass tops and island-style upholstery are attractive yet comfortable. A television and CD player and CDs provide entertainment. A mirror-backed credenza reflects the outdoors back into the room for an even more spacious feel. Décor includes artwork of Hawaiian culture and flora and fauna, such as the magnificent manta rays and delightful honu (sea turtles). Full-corner windows offer unobstructed views, especially great for wintertime spotting of visiting whales.
The first-floor master bedroom suite, with king-size bed and sumptuous upholstered chaise lounge, is decorated in soothing colors and Asian artwork and offers ocean and mountain views. There is a large walk-in closet. The master bath, privately situated next to a cozy lanai with torch ginger plantings, has high ceilings, a black-tile counter with companion sinks, and a toilet set apart by a pocket door. A huge walk-in shower/tub room is fully tiled with two showerheads—one for the taller person!
The downstairs guest bedroom also has a sliding glass door to a similarly private lanai, cleverly connected to--though separate from--the master lanai. Along with a king-size bed, the room offers rattan furniture and a large closet with a safe.
The second-story suite offers sweeping views of the ocean and mountains and beautiful sunsets. Another covered lanai runs the full length of the house, with sliding glass doors expanding the living areas throughout. Relax outside in lounge chairs or at the dining table for evening cards and board games. Or watch television in the living room, with plenty of seating in the large sectional sofa or on one of the tall queen-sized day beds which double as extra sleeping spots. Bookshelves provide a range of reading, including guidebooks and local culture. A charming secretary desk sits in the book corner for an inspiring spot to write letters and postcards back home. A convenient sink and mini-fridge make this a perfect, convenient suite for your teenage children, young-adult family or other traveling companions.
One of the two upstairs bedrooms has a queen-size bed plus two twin beds and a double closet. The other bedroom has a king-size bed, privacy from the living area, double closets and ocean and Mauna Kea views. These bedrooms share a bathroom with two sinks, shower/tub and toilet.
