Kona Bay Estates Hale Kai Olu

Home away from home. Peace. Tranquility. Beauty. Photos won't do this home justice.

This home is everything you look for during your Hawaii vacation. Four bedrooms in the main house, one down and three on the second floor. The master bedroom has a California king bed, two bedrooms have queen beds and the downstairs bedroom is a double bed. A built-in daybed in the family room can sleep someone as well. A separate ohana unit over the garage with a California king bed, including all the amenities, completes a home that will embrace you, your family and friends with the peace and tranquility that comes from living on the ocean. Sleep at night with the harmony of the waves caressing the shore and wake in the morning to the cheerful sounds of myna birds and the cooing of doves. Enjoy breakfast on the gazebo lanai and watch for dolphins while you sip your morning Kona coffee.

This is a beloved custom-built family home where I raised my children. Our architect and designer is a master at creating living spaces which capture the local trade winds, keeping our home cool most of the year with a rare need for air conditioning. These walls have been blessed with laughter, love and celebrations for many years, and now, this home is available for you to create your own memories. I apologize in advance but "Mika" the neighborhood kitty of 16 yrs may be seen milling around with a friendly hello.

Hale Kai Olu is located in a private community with a 24-hour guarded gate. Situated right on the shoreline with gorgeous views of Kona Village, you will enjoy your own private beach with inviting hammocks, and a salt water pool. Walk a few steps to our local swimming lagoon that is connected to the open sea. A complete kitchen with everything you need is here for you if you choose to cook—but if you want to eat out, there are many local restaurants with a varied choice of menu items; such as fresh salads, craft beer and pizza at the Kona Brewing Company, interesting local poke and juicy burgers at Umeke's, and great Thai food at Thai Orchid, all within a five minute walk from your front door. Or take a leisurely 10-minute stroll to Kona Village right around the corner for many more wonderful restaurant choices, as well as interesting and diverse shops.

With only a 10-15-minute drive from the airport, we are close to everything that you would possibly need. Five-minute drive to Target and Macy's, ten minutes to Costco, Home Depot, Lowe's, and Walmart. Safeway is 10 minutes and our local grocery store, KTA is five minutes from the house. If you like farmer's markets, you can visit one each Wednesday close to home, venture a little further on Saturday to the Keauhou Shopping Center, or for the best on the Island take an early morning drive up to cool breezes in Waimea and visit the three Saturday farmer's markets. There are Big Island offerings for adventure and excitement to everyone's taste that are too numerous to list, with multiple terrains and scenic options to choose from—beaches, snorkeling, hiking, waterfalls, horseback riding, restaurants and experiences galore. When you have finished your day of adventure, return home to your personal paradise to relax, rest and refresh.

Hale Kai Olu means, "Home by the calm and pleasing sea." When you stay at Hale Kai Olu you will see and feel for yourself the true meaning of our home.

Unbelievable property on the Big Island. Mornings drinking coffee on the patio watching the morning the sun and ocean hitting the lava rocks and listening to the beauty that was Hawaii. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our family of 10 vacationing and also our celebrating our 30th anniversary. Plenty of room for everyone in this island paradise. The Master BR was incredible with the views overlooking the beach and ocean which we woke up to everyday thinking we were in heaven. Large great room for everyone to gather after a day of exploring the island. The house is very private in a gated community yet a short walk in to town and to explore the area. Would definitely recommend walking over to Umeke's for fresh Poke but if you are a large party call ahead as we did have to wait one night longer than expect. Kona Brewery is just right next door for a nice pint. David at Kona Coast Vacations was a great source for local things to do and provided us with great advice and helped us book several trips while on the island. We were so sad to leave as we really became attached to the house and its beautiful location. Definitely would come back and stay on our next trip to the islands.

Absolutely amazing

Good location. Just south of Town of Kona. Lots of space in home. Comfy beds and bed towels. Fun pool floats and beach toys (we did buy more for the house).

Beautiful!!!
