About the Property
Nestled in a quiet, cool 1800ft elevation with a great view on Hualalai
Welcome to our home, Papaholua at Kaloko, a spacious oasis nestled 1,800 feet above Kailua-Kona on Mount Hualalai. Our home features outstanding 180-degree coastal views with over 3,000 square feet on a split-level floor plan. Upstairs you will find two master suites with en suite bathrooms, an additional full bathroom, dining room, living room, and partially stocked kitchen, and downstairs features a full living area, including a sitting area, two full bathrooms and a partially stocked kitchenette. Each master suite has a full dresser plus a walk-in closet, so there is plenty of space for your travel wear plus suitcases. And for the best in indoor-outdoor living, we feature two furnished lanais that you will enjoy watching the spectacular Kaloko sunsets while sipping a tropical punch.
This is our second home, so we have furnished it with care so it truly feels like an elegant home away from home. We feature high-end furniture, such as incredibly comfortable bedding, and personal collection of Hawaiian artwork and paintings by a local artist. Because this is our home away from home, we also have high-speed internet and a printer/scanner/fax to service your occasional business needs. Not only are we sharing our lovely, relaxing home, we are also a working coffee farm, with nearly 3 acres of coffee in production and also some treats, like papaya, avocado, and a small garden for fresh vegetables.
At Papaholua at Kaloko, you will be close enough to town to access everything quickly and easily, but far enough to feel like you’re on your own private country estate. Great beaches, shopping, restaurants, grocery, gas stations, airport, resorts, and Honokohau Harbor are all within 15 minutes driving distance. And because we are in a rural area, you may get to know some of our friends, the chickens, turkeys, pheasants, parrots, and geckos. We are at elevation, so, despite it being Hawaii, the climate can be cool in the mornings and we get occasional rain showers, so include cozy clothes in your suitcase. But after a hot day at the beach, our breezes will soothe you with perfect temperatures until bedtime.
Although this house could comfortably fit more than 8 people, we recommend a party not larger than that, to preserve the relaxing influence that our home has on our guests. Please ask us about our couple’s rates.
Finally, a bit about our name - a papaholua is the sled used in the ancient Hawaiian tradition of He'e Holua. It was a sport of sledding down lava hill from the top of the mountains. The sport was part of the Makahiki (celebration of life festival). All the Hawaiians would come together in peace to celebrate. Warriors would test their bravery sliding down the long, dangerous mountain slide. We wanted to celebrate of life's with you by sharing this fabulous culture. Please check out our replicate in our home.
Kaloko means fish ponds in the Hawaiian language. At the bottom of our mountain (Hualalai), which you can see from our scope, are the ancient Hawaiian's fish ponds. They used these little estuaries to capture fish more easily. It also represents the area where we live.
Come celebrate life, relaxation, and lifestyle at our house. Town and Country living close to everything but, also a beautiful oasis to get away from it all.
Aloha from our family to yours
