Keauhou House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bdr/4.5 Bath--Enough Room for 4 Couples or 2 Families + Outdoor Shower!

Imagine relaxing in your very own pool, listening to the quiet hum of the distant surf, watching the perfect sunset. All that and more can be enjoyed in HALE KEANI ('House of Gentle Breezes')--a gorgeous home in a private, gated community.

Welcome to Keahou Estates, a private gated subdivision at an elevation 360 feet above the beautiful south Kona coastline, where the surf’s whisper greets you upon wakening and lullabies you to sleep at night. We are just around the corner from several restaurants, a grocery and a drug store, plus a movie theater; the snorkel beach is only 2 miles down the road; and downtown Kona is a short seven- to ten-minute drive. Our home is nestled well away from the main roads and near the end of a cul-de-sac. You'll find lush landscaping on either side for maximum privacy—you won’t even know you have neighbors! We sit well above the houses below, so much so that we can easily boast the best (and dare we say the most romantic) sunset view in the entire neighborhood.

Our home is in like-new condition and professionally decorated. You are going to love the modern furnishings as well as the travertine flooring throughout. Each of the four bedrooms has its own marble-tiled, full bathroom, as well as its own flat screen television, and private lanai. The master bedroom has even more: a whirlpool tub--and our brand-new outdoor shower garden! Guarantee that after using our new outdoor tropical shower garden, you will find it hard to ever shower indoors again! Granite countertops and custom cabinets line the open kitchen, which would make any chef happy with its Jenn-Air gas range and Dacor double oven and microwave. For casual dining, four wicker bar stools pull up to the over-sized kitchen island. The distressed teakwood dining table (one of a kind from Indonesia) seats eight. As for the living room, relax in comfort as you enjoy the entertainment of the High Definition TV with DVD and surround-sound speakers. Or sit back and listen to the concerto of your choice as it is played for you on the baby grand player piano. Finally, don’t miss the vaulted ceilings that span the entire living space! Open the sliding screen doors and let the outside in: ours is truly a floor plan that takes advantage of the island breezes.

Because let’s not forget that you’re in Hawaii; you’re going to want to spend most of your time outdoors. Feel free to laze away your days in both the infinity pool and the heated spa. We’ve got lounge chairs for tanning, cushioned chairs for reading and/or conversation, and Adirondacks for whale-watching--or just daydreaming (coffee, anyone?)! Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying all your meals in our Bali-inspired, covered outdoor dining area--fully equipped with a Weber gas grill, stainless steel sink, Frigidaire refrigerator, Vizio flat screen TV, and cocktail bar. Gather ‘round the antique wagon wheel table from Bali for pupus every night at 6pm sharp: once you’ve experienced our gorgeous sunset, you’ll never want to leave this private island getaway.

About Kathleen

We met 35 years ago at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Each of us grew up in suburban Chicago--we both come from families of seven kids! We have three children of our own whom we are very proud of. Together, we enjoy golfing, hiking, fishing, red wine, and watching the sunsets. We don't think we will ever get tired of spotting a whale breaching.

Kathleen purchased this house in 2015

Why Kathleen chose Kona Coast

Our first visit to Hawaii was on our honeymoon in 1985. We returned for our 10th, and then again for our 15th anniversary, and we have been coming back to the Big Island to enjoy mini-honeymoons every year since. We've enjoyed Spring Break here with our children many times as well. We just love the Big Island for its beautiful weather and casual vibe.

What makes this house unique

Over the years, we have visited many homes on the Big Island. The first time we walked into this home, we knew it was the perfect one for us. Ocean views, and especially sunsets, are very important to us. Of all the houses we had seen, this was the only one that truly offered an unobstructed view of the ocean. Not a single rooftop blocks the view!

The house is the perfect size for our family: a master bedroom suite for us, and 3 other bedrooms, one for each of our grown children. And since each bedroom has its own beautiful bathroom, everybody gets their privacy! We know that as our family inevitably expands, there will be plenty of room for spouses and grandchildren.

Simply Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Really hard to put in words just how outstanding this home is, and how much it contributed to our Big Island experience. It exceeded every expectation we had prior to arriving. The photos on the VRBO website, while impressive, do not compare to actually spending time there. You can sense the owners take pride in the presentation of their home. It is clean, modern, and extremely comfortable. Lounging on the lanai by the pool drinking a cup of coffee at sunrise, or a glass of wine enjoying the spectacular view of a Kona sunset, all I can say is life is good, and the experience sublime. We will return!

*Exceeded Expectations*

  • 5 of 5

We picked this home based on the other reviews and the beautiful pictures, but when we arrived we were still blown away. The layout, décor and location couldn't be more perfect. Very quiet and secluded yet close enough to everything. Even the Costco is only 15 mins away. The kitchen had every appliance, cookware and utensil we needed, and the island was our gathering place for breakfast just as I had envisioned when seeing it on this site. Each of the four bedrooms is very private with its own full bathroom and plenty of towels. Great wifi coverage throughout the home, too! We paid to have the AC and glad we did. While the home has plenty of windows and a nice breeze, it was pretty humid while we were on the island and needed it at night. Oh - and the beach gear (8 chairs, 8 towels, 2 umbrellas, 4 boogie boards, cooler) were great quality! There was snorkel gear, too, but we had rented our own before we knew it was all in the garage. Speaking of snorkeling, when you visit the island check out the manta ray and/or dolphin excursions with Ocean Eco Tours. Our party was ages 10 to 55 and everyone enjoyed those very much. We also visited a local coffee farm, and the volcano and waterfalls on the east side of the island. The cliff jump at the "End of the World" (only our 20/22 yr olds jumped) is literally down the road from the house. We loved our Big Island adventure and this home was a big part of it!

My favorite part was waking up early each morning, brewing a cup of the vanilla mac nut Kona coffee I purchased, and sitting out on the patio listening to and watching the pretty birds that visited. Or maybe my favorite part was watching the gorgeous sunset each night with a glass of wine and geckos. Either way - you will be thoroughly pleased with Katie's hospitality and genuine interest that you enjoy your time at Hale Keani!

Let me start out by saying I am a very picky person.

This house did not disappoint at all. Most important is how clean it was, and I look in every nook and cranny.

The house is very well appointed. I am an Interior Designer and I liked everything about the house. We were there to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with our grown children and everyone had their own room and bath which was very important. We cooked breakfasts and some dinners, and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The outdoor space was so beautiful, private and relaxing we did not want to leave the property. The outdoor shower was fabulous, we used it rather than the indoor one. The view could not be better, it is imprinted in my mind forever! The location is perfect, close to grocery and drugstores.

I could go on. I personally rely heavily on reviews, do not hesitate to rent this property.

Thank you Lopez family for taking such good care of your amazing property for others to enjoy.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, relaxing place to call home away from home. We truly enjoyed our stay at Hale Keani, starting with the house, the location and the peaceful subdivision. Gorgeous views of the Pacific along with a very private back yard. We have stayed in several other homes in the Estates and this is our favorite! Looking forward to coming back! Thank you for keeping your home clean, updated and welcoming!

We rented this home with two other couples as a "childhood friends" getaway. What an incredible venue to bring they joy of old friends back together after many years apart. This home takes your breath away as you walk through the door and enter down the grand staircase into the main living area. We all commented we felt like Scarlett O'Hara making her grand entrance! :) The home itself is not only spacious, well appointed, and tastefully decorated but the view from the back lanai is to die for. Nothing but miles and miles of the Pacific Ocean as far as the eye can see. The sunsets were spectacular and we all applauded as the orange orb slipped into the ocean every evening. The kitchen was well equipped and we made many a meal in the house whether it be a big breakfast, simple lunch or BBQ'ing steaks on the grill. We all felt truly at home with every amenity at our beck and call. The bedrooms were spacious with king & queen beds with great sized bathrooms boasting large walk in showers and a jetted tub. Every room had it's own bath so privacy was not an issue.

We truly cannot say enough good about this property and the owners are "top drawer". Response time was immediate and Katie makes you feel like a dear friend when she speaks with you. You can tell that the Lopez's care enough to want your vacation to be everything you've dreamed of in their home.

None of us will forget this vacation for so many reasons but this home brought it all together in a wonderful, heart warming way. Thank you again, Lopez family, for allowing us to rent your gorgeous abode. We are counting the days until our return ....

Aloha & Mahalo!

Well what can I say that hasn't been said all ready in the other posts. This home and location is second to no none . We stayed here for 10 days and it was heaven . Katie will answer any question you have within hours (if not minutes). She hooked us up with a private chef to come to the home and it was the best meal we had on the island (thanks to Zack for a great meal and conversation). There is nothing about this house, location, or the island that you will not love. One thing to keep in mind when driving around the island is that road ( I think its highway 11 ) gets very busy at times and can take a long time to get where your going its better to take Allii drive at most times. Stay here and you will never want to stay any other place again!!!!
