Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Sleeps 20

Hale Pua (“House of Flowers”) now features AC as an option in all of its sleeping areas: five king bedrooms, one bunkroom with four twin beds and game room with queen sofabed. This special home is maybe the only 6 bed/6 full bath oceanfront vacation rental on the Kona Coast. For recent candid photos and input from guests, please visit our FB page, halepuahouseofflowers.

Hale Pua is a coastal oasis with high-end comforts and details throughout. While this privately-owned home works wonderfully for large gatherings, it is just as warm & welcoming for several couples or a smaller family group.

The home boasts full baths for every bedroom, and a sprawling sea-facing great room with easy access to the kitchen and wetbar. Multiple wall-to-wall glass sliding doors on the oceanside allow trade winds to gently flow while enjoying the stunning water and sunset views. You can SEE or HEAR the ocean from nearly every room!

The spacious lanai with waterfall pool and spa extends the full length of the house along the oceanfront. A lush stretch of yard is the only separation between the rolling surf against the lava rock wall and the home’s lanai.

Just a 50 foot walk from the lanai along a wide rock wall is a small sandy beach with gentle entry to abundant tide pools and out to the ocean for snorkeling, surfing or kayaking.

Your ocean view is unobstructed and stunning; no walking path between you and the sea which is the case in many local beachfront neighborhoods.

After a day of sun & fun, kids (or adults!) can chill out watching their favorite movie in the media room featuring leather home theater recliners and a 70” Smart Samsung flat screen TV with surround sound . Many movies are provided for your enjoyment.

The executive open-design dream kitchen features granite counter and dining room seating for 16 indoors, 8 outdoors. This chef-worthy kitchen is equipped with 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, 1 wine cooler, Subzero & Dacor appliances along with flatware & dishes to serve over 20 people.

Hale Pua is a special home that has been recently renovated with custom paint, window treatments, wall art and designer Restoration Hardware furniture. Each bedroom bears a fitting title in a brass doorplate, such as “Surf’s Up”, “Kona Coffee”, “Pua Suite” and so on. The Hawaiian bedroom décor showcases new linens, pillows and tropical touches that will make you smile. All bedrooms have flat screen TVs with cable.

The 2nd floor Master Suite, with panoramic ocean views, provides optimum whale and dolphin watching opportunities. Another guest suite is “Ohana” designed, also ocean view offering upstairs sleeping and separate downstairs living/sleeping with wall-to-wall sliders opening onto the lanai.

The baths are all full-size, three with double-sink vanities. Four of the six baths have very large tiled walk-in showers; the other two have shower tubs, one of those featuring a Jacuzzi. Vaulted beamed ceilings throughout the home, with finish work done in native Koa wood. The large laundry is centrally located in the home, featuring two 2014 Whirlpool Duet full-size washers/dryers.

Hale Pua is perfectly located; close enough for adults and kids to walk to Old Kona Town and the pier. Set back 130 feet from prestigious Alii Drive, behind a private remote-controlled gate, the setting is peaceful and secluded.

Part of Hale Pua's charm is its Hawaiian coastal open-air design. The home has louvered and screened windows throughout and features large wall-to-wall sliding doors on the ocean side of the house - the prevailing trade winds from the west over the ocean and the mountain breezes from the east keep the main living area of this island home comfortable with ceiling fans and Vornado floor fans throughout.

About Boundless Hawaii

This is the second home we’ve owned in the Kona area, the first being up in the Kona Coffee belt of Holualoa. Having retired in 2009, we can now focus more on one of our favorite vacation spots – the Big Island! Only two previous owners (those who built Hale Pau and one other couple) meticulously cared for this estate. We plan to live up to their legacy for many years to come, maintaining and investing in Hale Pua as generously as they did.

Why Boundless Hawaii chose Kona Coast

We have three children, two grown and one in high school, three grand kids and a large extended family. We’ve struggled to find a home to rent with enough bedrooms and baths so kids weren’t in sleeping bags and stepping all over each other. When our family & friends join us on the Big Island, they all yearn for an oceanfront property with both pool and hot tub; the adults and younger ones alike want ocean access to snorkel, kayak, boogie board and surf; the kids are thrilled when there’s a theater room for movies & video games; and everyone hopes to be near enough to walk to Kona town. We finally found the perfect venue with Hale Pua!

What makes this house unique

Stunning views & sunsets, plenty of spacious bedrooms & baths. Please come and enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Review left by guest on HomeAway. This place was fantastic. Six or seven bedrooms, thirteen of us, with teenagers and blended families, with privacy and room to spare. Bathrooms, refigerators, icemakers, washers, dryers, tvs, electronics galore. Four triple patio doors that opened up to the sea with views clear to Australia...just kidding. Nestled on a gated property on the Big Island's most famous street with safe parking for our three surburbans, almost walking distance from Huggos, a favorite watering hole. Hot tub and pool three steps out the door, water toys, etc. Two separate tables, one inside, one outside that could each seat 10 or 12. Had a corner to get lost in, puzzles for the loners, and ceiling and other fans everywhere. Few rentals have air conditioning so some of us missed that during the heat of the day, it being July. The repairman responded quickly to a smoke detector that triggered twice needlessly. Our trip completed, our six adults agreed that partial reason reason for having a very harmonious, rather stress free time with such a large group was due to the spacious and grandeur surroundings of our beautiful abode during this week on the Big Island.

Fabulous oceanfront property!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we drove into the driveway we knew Hale Pua was a unique and special place. It is perfectly located within walking distance of downtown Kona where there are excellent restaurants and shopping; and public beaches where we can swim, snorkel and boogie board. We saw magnificent sunsets from the patio. We took yoga classes on the back lawn from a professional yoga instructor.

The owners have gone above and beyond in updating this beautiful property. All of the rooms have new king-size beds. As an added comfort, air-conditioning has recently been installed in the bedrooms. The kitchen has every thing you would ever need. The kids spent lots of time in the theater-style media room.

We were vacationing with three other families and we all had our own space with private bath. It was such an exceptional property that I plan to bring my extended family back next year to celebrate my mother's birthday.

Reviewer Comments:

The Kona area can be a very busy place which is fun but also can become a little tiring. When you step into the doors of this home, all of the hustle and bustle disappears. This house is so relaxing and you seldom see anyone else but those you are staying with, an occasional boat or surfer. Sitting on the seawall we were able to enjoy a display of tropical fish and turtles just below us. We also saw dolphins and whales in the distance. The opening walls of the house bring the outside in. The beds were great and with a group of 9,everyone had their own space. I highly recommend Hale Pua and hope to return again some day.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of 11 loved our stay at beautiful Hale Pua. Everything about the house exceeded our expectations: the size, the pool, the view, the furnishings, the kitchen equipment, the marvelous media room, the attention to detail, like providing flashlights and binoculars and pool toys. The other 7 members of our family visited us for the afternoon and evening three times and we never felt crowded, despite there being 18 of us. The house was impeccably cleaned and maintained. Only very strong swimmers could swim in the ocean in front of the house; it is quite rough with waves breaking into the rocks. But wonderful beaches are nearby. Can't recommend this house more highly.

Reviewer Comments:

This house was absolutely wonderful! Everyone who stayed at the house felt its accommodations and appointments were stunning. The location, views, pool/jacuzzi, and air conditioned bed rooms made it a great spot for a large family getaway including those aged 8-78 (and many in between)! We did fit 20 into the house comfortably. The kitchen and extra refrigerators allowed us to stock up on groceries and prep/serve this group with ease. This property made our vacation so special! In fact, we went to a resort in Waikiki for the last stint of our vacation together and all we could say is "we wish we were back at the house!" and we do look forward to coming back one day! Thank you to the gracious owners and very efficient property managers!
