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, Time-warner cable with HBO, a computer with high speed internet 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. ThePoolhouse was completely renovated in 2013 with brand new kitchen and bathroom.

Interaction with Guests
The manager, Kelsey, believes that folks at the poolhouse will experience their best vacation in the peacefulness of the property. While she lives in the main house and will be present to help with check in and orientation, she is respectful of privacy that the poolhouse maintains. She is a text message or phone call away to giving recommendations for activities, restaurants, best beaches and/or waterfalls.
Other Things to Note
Kelsey was the perfect host; nothing was too much trouble and she was so kind and helpful. The accommodation was absolutely perfect with plenty of space inside the Poolhouse and a fantastic private pool and grotto with waterfall outside the door. There were loads of chairs and sun beds with a large table and chairs under a canopy providing shade. The garden was full of beautiful plants, flowers and birds and it was all so tranquil. The neighbourhood was lovely; all houses were clearly well looked after and there was a peaceful feel to the entire village.
Had a lovely time! Very well located, private & peaceful setting. Close to very nice beaches and host has plenty of snorkel / beach gear sitting out for you to borrow! Fantastic stay, highly recommend.
This was our first AirBnB rental and from the moment we saw the pool house on the AirBnB site and read the reviews we had to stay there and it lived up to expectations. The Pool House and Kelsey are awesome. Kelsey is very responsive and helpful. Ask her about diving with the dolphins. It's a must do experience. The pool house certainly sets the bar for future AirBnB rentals.
Some deets...the pool house, pool and hot tub are well kept and very clean. The kitchen and rest of house are well stocked with needed items from preparing meals to beach towels to snorkel gear. The house computer was helpful and convenient with links to excellent area activities. The pool house is very comfortable and located in a safe environment. While we normally locked the doors when we left, but there certainly was never a feeling that we needed to. Sitting in the hot tub and stargazing at night was an amazing way to end each day in Hawaii. The pool house is conveniently located to Waikoloa Beach, Waikoloa Village Market and really within 45min of most of the interesting things on the Big Island. It's a great choice and location for experiencing the Big Island.
Kelsey, a couple ideas to consider, a better sign that you are at the right place for those arriving late at night (maybe a removable sign). We were unsure we were in the right place and the pool house sign is hard to see. However, you are responsive on text and ensured we were in the right place. Also, we always met to ask, but do they recycle in Hawaii? If so, it would be great to have recycle containers for glass, paper, etc.
Anyways, totally awesome experience and loved every moment there and hope to certainly come back some day.

Staying here was beyond incredible. My boyfriend and I both felt very at home and relaxed. We will definitely be back soon. Kelsey was super attentive and responded to any questions immediately. The poorhouse was very clean and exceeded my expectations. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful.
Nice pool house. It was great to have use of the BBQ, outdoor seating, pool and beach equipment. Kelsey couldn't have been any better at responding to our questions.
Everything about the location and our stay was absolutely perfect. Kelsey greeted me on arrival and ran through all details with me and then allowed us privacy. The house and pool are beautiful, with everything we needed there and available to us. We will definitely make it back again and highly recommend to anyone!!!
We absolutely loved our stay at the Poolhouse. Kelsey was warm, easy to get on with and very helpful when it came to giving us tips. She was attentive to any of our needs but gave us the space to do our own thing. If you're looking for a romantic little hideout - this is the spot. You have the pool, grill and hot tub to yourself!
She also supplies gear to enjoy the beach, snorkelling etc. like towels,folding chairs, boogy boards, flippers, goggles (different sizes)
The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom a good size, and a spacious, fully equipped kitchen. Kelsey has supplied all the little extras you may need in the kitchen and bathroom.
You will need to hire a car to get around. The neighbourhood is very quiet and safe. Amazing view of the hills in the distance.
The grocery shop is only a 3 minute drive in the local village.
Keep in mind that the Poolhouse doesn't have AC, however there are 3 large fans that you can switch to reverse, to suck up the hot air. Most of the time there are lovely breezes to keep you cool, and really it's all about enjoying the outdoors!
My husband and I stayed there for a long earned rest and to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. It was magical. Best place we've ever stayed. Thanks Kelsey - keep up the good work.
