Hale O' Honu'ea


***UPDATE EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 15, 2020: the state of Hawaii has started a pre-travel covid-testing program and Hawaii County is requiring a post-arrival covid test. As of October 26th, news reporting on both state and county requirements indicate that these criteria may change. We are not taking bookings at this time and will re-open to inquiries when Hawaii state and county level travel restrictions are clearer. *** ***UPDATE EFFECTIVE APRIL 13, 2020: Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim has announced all vacation rentals, bed and breakfasts and time shares must shut down and stop advertising beginning Monday to minimize the spread of COVID-19. The county’s emergency rule will remain in effect until April 30 or until it is terminated by Kim. We are not ADVERTISING, accepting reservations, nor have had guests since March 22nd. Our listing remains active so that guests with reservations made prior to March 22nd can still contact us to cancel their future trip that was booked prior to that date.*** ***EFFECTIVE MARCH 22, 2020: The governor announced a mandatory 14-day quarantine of all travelers (visitors AND returning residents) to the state of Hawaii. As of today the state has not specified how long this quarantine will extend. As such we have blocked our calendar to not accept new bookings for 2020 until the state of Hawaii declares an end date to the quarantine orders. Whenever the quarantine order is ended, we will open up our booking calendar to our cancelled and past guests first to allow them the chance to re-book with us. We look forward to welcoming you to experience the aloha spirit of Hawaii at that time.*** ***If you have any questions about our property, please use the "Ask Owner a Question" hyperlink under our photo and names on the right side of the screen on the VRBO/Homeaway website. Mahalo for reading - Jeff and Sonia, Hale O' Honu'ea.*** Hale O' Honu'ea: Stay in this beautifully furnished 2 bedroom townhome, with polished granite and stainless steel gourmet kitchen, 2 1/2 baths and 1 car garage and relax in over 1600 square feet of indoor living in a spacious open layout. The tranquil Lanai off the main floor dining area includes a wet bar, Viking grill/rotisserie and outdoor dining seating for 6, as well as a smaller outdoor "coffee nook" with seating for two. The floor plan here is ideal for privacy and comfort with both bedrooms upstairs away from the main living area and on far ends of the home, each with an ensuite full bathroom. You can feel safe with your family all sleeping upstairs, but you can also enjoy privacy from each other as the master and guest suite are on opposite ends of the upstairs hallway. The master suite includes a den sitting area, ensuite with jacuzzi tub and private lanai that together with the downstairs lanai extends the living space to over 2000 square feet. Enjoy the view of the naturalized golf course landscaping and the 11th green of the north course in the distance. The daybed in the den converts to a twin or king size bed for the 5th guest if needed. Your stay at Hale O' Honu'ea includes a gate pass to owners parking at the semi-private Beach Club with ocean-side restaurant, coral reef snorkeling and white sand beach. Covered cabanas and sunbathing chairs are on the beach for guests of property owners only, so all you need to bring are the towels, boogie boards and sand toys that we provide and your sunblock! Water enthusiasts can rent stand-up paddle boards, surf boards, outriggers and other equipment adjacent to the beach or even join a snorkel, whale-watch (in season), scuba dive, or sunset cruise. Our community, the Fairways: Just 20 minutes north of Kona Airport in the beautiful Mauna Lani Resort and ideally situated between the Fairmont Orchid Hotel and the Shops of Mauna Lani and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. The Fairways is an impeccably maintained luxury gated community on over 20 acres adjacent to the Francis H. Brown North Golf course, one of two championship golf courses within Mauna Lani. Golf bookings are made directly with the golf course and are available 60 days in advance, with best rates booked earliest. Amenities at the Fairways include a large BBQ pavilion, large and luxurious free form swimming pool, spa, waterfalls, and a fitness center with a/c. Within Mauna Lani you can explore the lesser known 49 Black Sand Beach or one of the five white sand beaches and waterfront of the unsurpassed Kohala Coast, the historic petroglyphs and ancient fish ponds, and enjoy the free cultural activities offered at the Shops of Mauna Lani. Meet turtles swimming in the ocean, sunning on the rocks or those that are part of the Mauna Lani honu preservation program. Exploring beyond Mauna Lani? We have provided cooler bags, beach chairs and guide books (and are happy to give you more ideas if you ask). So much of what we love about Hawaii is the natural untouched beauty of the island. Hawaii gets most of its electricity from oil-fired power plants, and all the oil has to be imported. We've installed solar panels to lower our reliance on oil imports and in hopes that this small contribution will help reduce our carbon footprint on our paradise. This is a no-smoking, no-pet property. The Fairways is zoned RM-4 and is a legal short-term vacation rental location. As required per Hawaii County Ordinance 2018-114, Hale O' Honu'ea is a registered short term vacation rental: STVR-19-351357.
