THE POOLHOUSE!!! Have your very own private resort. Just 6 miles from the beautiful beaches of the Kohala Coast. A-Bay, Waialea Bay, and Hapuna Beach are all just a short drive from your "resort". The Poolhouse comes with a solar heated, salt water pool and a gas heated grotto with waterfall. The house itself comes complete with every thing you need for a private, romantic get away. A fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. A commercial gas grill is right outside if you feel like cooking and dining next to the pool. Also the Poolhouse has a queen size bed, a living area with flat screen tv, Yamaha stereo with IPhone Dock or aux jack, Direct TV cable, and high speed wifi. Start your day with a early swim in the refreshing salt water followed by breakfast (provided by guest) next to the pool. Then when you return from a day of adventure or relaxing at the beach have a rest in the outdoor hammock or a soak in the heated grotto with the waterfall splashing next to you. Follow that by grilling your dinner on the gas grill and dinner outside as the waterfall gently splashes nearby and you have a perfect day. The Poolhouse was completely renovated in 2013 with brand new kitchen and bathroom.

GOLF: Nestled in the foothills of Mauna Kea overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Waikoloa Village Golf Course is truly one of Hawaii's most beautiful courses. It was designed by Robert Trent Jones and is only a five minute drive from the Poolhouse.

The place is very comfortable, private and has amazing views of Mauna Kea especially on bright, gorgeous mornings. It has a lovely and large garden plus a very relaxing pool area. Kelsey pays good attention the cleanliness and cozy, breezy feeling of the guest accomodatio. We highly recommend this place.

My boyfriend and I booked this place to celebrate an anniversary, looking for something a little more quiet and intimate than the usual Kona/Waikoloa resort scene. We couldn't have been happier. Although we never actually got to meet her, Kelsey was an extremely helpful and communicative host. She offers services and assistance in local attractions, which would be great for anyone visiting the island for the first time. The kitchen was fully equipped (we brought groceries and had no trouble cooking our own food), the bed was extremely comfortable (plenty of extra pillows and blankets), and the pool and surrounding yard and seating areas were lovely. Getting to bring my little dog along with us was a major plus. Overall an amazing deal, considering the prices of the surrounding hotels, many of which I've stayed at. I would definitely recommend this place to visitors and locals alike, and will probably book it again in the future.

What a great find, especially if you want to bring your dogs with you. The Poolhouse was spacious with updated kitchen and bath. Very comfortable. Outside was beautiful and relaxing. The pool was clean and easy to get in and out of. The grotto (spa but without jets) heated up quickly and was super relaxing. Also the BBQ area was clean and relaxing. There is also a small yard for people and dogs to play in. The neighborhood is an upscale area and safe fore walking. Getting down to the Poolhouse from the street is a little tricky if your older or have a hard time with slopes, but manageable. All-in-all, we loved our stay and Kelsey, our host, was always there if we needed her. I would highly recommend this location.

Response from Kelsey:
I'm sorry to hear you were not pleased as to the location. A supermarket, coffee shop, and few restaurants are located 5 minutes away. The best beaches are 15-20 minutes away by car. A very affordable and convenient for many people wanting to enjoy Big Islands beautiful white sand beaches like Hapuna, Mauna Kea, and Anaehoomalu Bay. Some of the best 4 and 5 star restaurants are located by these beaches as well. It's about a 45 min drive from the airport. And with uber, it's more convenient to travel if your not planning to rent a car. For guests booking the poolhouse, you will receive an email confirmation that details directions and instructions for the Poolhouse. I have made the poolhouse self- sufficient which means I don't always have to be there... which means even more privacy for the Poolhouse guests... So whether pool or beach... guests seem pleased. I'm sorry for your dissatisfaction of the location.

Kelsey has a great place - it's like your own private hotel suite + pool! Comfy bed, well-stocked kitchen and great bathroom shower. Good overall location with easy access to a grocery store, coffee shop and restaurant. It's about 25 minutes away from the big resort and beach area. I would definitely stay here again!

Imagine what you would wish for a romantic stay in Hawaii... a convenient location close to a bunch of exciting things to do, a beautiful swimming pool, an amazing outdoor space and a well organized indoor space with a real kitchen (yeah, we're French), that's Kelsey's pool house! We loved coming back from hiking on the volcano or surfing and landing back to this sweet and quiet retreat. Worth every penny. Thanks!
