Overview

About the property

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 518 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.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this gorgeous home celebrating my 60th birthday with our family. There were 5 adults and 2 small children. It was absolutely perfect! While the house looks pretty amazing in these photos, it is even more spectacular in person! The house was immaculate and the furnishing beautiful! The outside area is great. We ate all of our dinners outside, watching the amazing sunset over the ocean. Plenty of staples were provided which was so appreciated. When I contacted Katie before our trip to see if there was a pack 'n play for our one year old grandson, she said that there was not and then bought one to leave for us to use. The owners are very easy to work with. If you are looking for the perfect Kona home to spend your vacation in, this is it!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 40th anniversary vacation at this spectacular home. The view is simply to die for. We loved counting the boats in the ocean each morning and enjoying the spectacular sunsets each evening.

The home is lovely and was spotless when we arrived. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. We enjoyed the house so much we actually spent more time there than we usually do when we vacation. The neighborhood is equally beautiful and very quiet. The location is excellent to see anything on the big island you like. It was a pleasure to return home each evening after touring the area.

One highlight of our trip was a sunset helicopter tour around the island. The whole flight was spectacular but seeing the lava flowing down to the sea was incredible. The later day time made the red lava easier to see. I highly recommend a helicopter tour if you are in the area.

The owners of the house are wonderful. Katie is a joy to work with and really cares about their guests. A stay at their amazing home is a real treat. I highly recommend this property.

Our 2nd stay at Hale Keani was even better!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited The Big Island last year and stayed in this wonderful home. We enjoyed it so much, we returned again! Last year we thought Hale Keani was just absolutely the most comfortable home our Family has rented during our trips to Hawaii, but this year it was even better. The owners, who are a delight to work with and are meticulous about all details of how their home is presented to guests, bought some beautiful outdoor furniture for the lanai. What was also added was an outdoor shower garden off the master bedroom. If you have never showered outdoors in Hawaii, trust me, this was special! From the spectacular weather, the sunsets from the lanai every night with a glass of wine in hand (saw my 1st green flash), and spotting humpback whales spouting and breaching almost every day......life is grand. Kudos to the property owners for sharing Hale Keani with our Family again. We will return!

Gorgeous!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week in this lovely home. Everything was perfect and the owners were wonderful to work with. The house was fully equipped to "move in", including beach gear and towels, ice chests, boogie boards, umbrellas etc. Although beautiful, the travertine floors and large staircase were challenging with a one-year-old in the house. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a wonderful experience on the Big Island.

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!
