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.
