Welcome to Hale Hina - The Home of the Hawaiian Goddess of Sunrises, Sunsets, Coral Reefs, and the Moon!

The state of Hawaii has carefully started to re-open after the COVID-19 shutdown. Please visit our website at Hale-Hina.com and click on the Safe Travels tab to familiarize yourself with the current Hawaii travel requirements and procedures.

Our home is very special, and has many fabulous features and amenities, including the most important and maybe the most intangible one: Hale Hina is our vacation home too.

Why should that be important to you? Because we stay at Hale Hina three times a year, and when we visit we enjoy having a beautifully decorated, well appointed and excellently maintained home. Other vacation homes, left alone by their absentee owners to be managed by a 3rd party company, will never be given the same energy, love or attention as Hale Hina.

Featuring panoramic coastline views, an infinity pool, hot tub and a gourmet kitchen, our private residence, located in the gated and guarded Keauhou Estates community, in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, is the epitome of ALOHA living.

Relax into the embrace of the Hawaiian Goddess, Hina, when you step into the grand entryway through etched glass doors depicting gorgeous Heliconia flowers and towering banana trees. Our custom 2661 square foot, three bedroom, three bath hale has everything you need for a peaceful, re-energizing, private tropical island vacation.

Upon entering the expansive great room, the cathedral ceilings create a vast sense of space. Curl up on the cushy crescent moon couch and watch your favorite Blu Ray movie on the 60” flat screen with surround sound, or listen to tunes through the integrated sound system. Let the captivating view lure you through the two giant pocket doors onto the covered lanai, as Hale Hina seamlessly connects the indoors to the outdoors.

Grill some freshly caught fish, local grass-fed beef, or your favorite veggies (picked up at the Keauhou Farmers Market) at the convenient outdoor kitchen. The lanai features ample covered dining space for six people and an outdoor seating area for cocktails and conversation. Afternoons melt away in this peaceful setting where you can unwind in the hot tub or the infinity pool and your privacy is protected by the tropical landscaping and lava rock terracing.

The gourmet indoor kitchen is a chef’s dream with granite counters, cherry cabinets and all the tools you need to make a simple meal or an epicurean delight.

The spacious master suite features a California king size bed, walk-in closet and large pocket doors that open to the lanai --revealing the soothing ocean views. Slide between the soft cool sheets after an evening soak in the hot tub, located just outside the bedroom. Unlike hotels and condos, Hale Hina’s pool and hot tub don’t have a closing time! The master bath includes a walk through marble shower concealed behind a glass etched ocean scene, Jacuzzi bathtub, a long granite counter with two sinks and a separate room with a comfort height toilet.

The second master suite includes a California king bed, a queen size Murphy bed, its own spacious bathroom with double sinks, comfort height toilet, a walk in shower with grab bar, and outside access through a sliding glass door with a path to the pool area.

The third bedroom offers a queen bed and a convertible over-sized chair that cleverly disguises a regular twin mattress. A rainforest marble shower and travertine floors complete the guest bath located just down the hall.

Let the ocean breezes carry away your stress while you watch the whales and surfers frolic off the coast during the day. Marvel in the beauty of a perfect sunset as the stars begin to ignite the sky and you watch Hina weave her moonlight magic.

Welcome home to Hale Hina.

Very comfortable and relaxing. The pool and hot tub were an added bonus. The driveway is narrow and tricky if you want to turn around at the top of the driveway. All in all, a great place and perfect for 3 couples.

The view is worth a million bucks. Really is an incredible place to relax with a group of people and just stare into the distance. The location is close to a grocery store and restaurants making it easy to manage family needs. The beach just down the road is good for snorkeling but not great for kids. It's very rocky and there are a ton of sea urchins. There are many kid friendly beaches within a 20 minute radius, so beach time is easy to achieve. The house supplies everything you need for a beach day, so no need to rent your own gear as long as your group is less than six people. Host and property manager (Ute) are wonderful and very responsive. Absolutely worth every penny!

The house is as advertised. It’s beautiful quiet place to stay not too far from Kona. Sallie and Ute made sure to let us know if we had any issues to let them know (we didn’t have any). We highly recommend and hope to visit again sometime in the future.

Beautiful property! Some days we didn’t even want to go sightseeing. We just relaxed by the pool. This property has everything! Thank you so much!

I am from upstate NY (Rochester), so anywhere in Hawaii is going to be impressive. This property was awesome! It was very clean and well appointed. It is air conditioned, which is not always the case in Hawaii. It's worth the price of admission for sure!

It was our 30th anniversary and my parents 50th so we treated then to a trip to Hawaii on a shared anniversay in paradise. The house was perfect. Beautiful setting with breath taking sunsets. We would recommend this home to anyone. We are looking forward to a return trip in the near future.

Loved staying at this home. Beautiful sunsets. Spent most of our time out, around the pool. Quiet neighborhood.

Even before than the expected. There were seven of us and plenty of space. Very private. The sunsets were amazing. Ute is the best.

We had the most wonderful stay at Hale Hina and of course, did not want to leave. My wife and I have four kids and had a romantic getaway without them this past week. The house was in perfect condition and was incredibly comfortable. We have rented many other VRBOs over the years and this house takes the cake as the most clean and and where everything worked perfectly. I HIGHLY recommend you stay at Hale Hina. Sally was lovely and we greatly appreciate her sharing her home with us. Thank you for this wonderful experience. Sean and Meredith

Amazing home, with great lanai and pool area - the living room walls fully retract so that inside and outside blend together for full tropical immersion! Great size for two couples and a kid, with everyone getting their own bedrooms, but having a common area to hang out. Short drive to diving and restaurants - as long as you don't require being walking distance to the beach, we'd definitely recommend this place!

My friends and I splurged on this incredible home to celebrate a friend becoming a new mom — surprise baby came 5 weeks early and we found ourselves together for the first since the world altering pandemic in paradise. We rallied, enjoying her pregnancy masseuse, adding more excursions to our itineraries — we swam with manta rays at night, enjoyed snorkeling at beach 69 (not a grain of sand returned to properly with us!), some took a fishing charter & drove to Volcano National Park for the day, stoping at a black sand beach and ending with seeing actually erupting lava as the sun went down. At our home for the week we cooked in the amazing Hale Hina kitchen — slept hard every night after a swim and Hottub and lined up reverently for sunset each evening. If we had done nothing but sat on the lanai and watch birds and lizards, listen and smell the flowers and enjoyed each other’s company we would have been complete. This house welcomes you with its comfort and delights your eye with each artistic touch. We hope to return one day soon and that Splotch the outdoor calico kitty is up for more than secret nighttime feedings and occasional sightings from afar. Ute was a fabulous on island resource! Thank you Sallie & Fam for sharing your beautiful home with us.

This gorgeous property is situated in a quiet gated community, less than 30 minutes from the KOA airport. The layout and furnishings of the home are beautiful but the real star of the show is the view. Whether you’re in the kitchen, master bedroom or lanai, the views are stunning. My husband and I loved every second of our time here. Between the property owners and managers, we were made to feel like friends invited into their home, not just random tenants connected by internet. This was a magical place and so glad DH and I got to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary here. Mahalo!!

Excellent communication and overall experience. The owner takes pride in her home and it shows! Very detailed instructions and clear labeling made everything easy to use and understand. Beautiful sunsets and comfortable sleeping arrangements for our family of 7. Favorite parts included the pool and hot tub with pool toys provided, caretaker Ute and the overall quality and cleanliness of the property, especially during COVID. Highly recommend!

Gorgeous property! Very clean property, extremely safe during Covid times. We were able to do all check-in and any questions remotely with Ute (on the island Property manager). Love that there are 2 "primary suites" with ensuite bathrooms and a separate bathroom for the 3rd bedroom. Perfect getaway for our family. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We had an amazing time staying at the Hale Hina. Everything went smoothly with check in and with covid protocols. This is the second time we have stayed at the house and will definitely book again in the future.

Beautiful well-appointed home with spectacular ocean views. Very quiet, in an upscale, gated neighborhood. Very clean and well-organized with instructions for everything. We spent most of our time relaxing on the lanai by the pool and hot tub. Would defiantly stay here again.

Wonderful home, we had a great 10 day stay. The lanai is the perfect spot to hang out with the family, the shower was always hot, the kitchen and pantry are well appointed, the living room is comfortable and has plenty of seating for a large group, and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. If I had a complaint it would be the AC. Coming from the South we like our houses cool. It is controlled to not go below 72. That’s a little warm for us, especially on the hot Hawaiian days - it does cool down eventually but the ceiling height (while beautiful) means that it takes a while. The only tub pictured/in the house has also been broken for quite a while. But the host was kind enough to bring us a baby bath so we could bathe our 7mo old. I would recommend this home as it’s in a beautiful neighborhood and the outdoor space for the wonderful sunsets just can’t be beat. The Morris Family

The property lived up to all of its expectations and then some. It was truly a wonderful place to stay.
