About this listing

Beautiful spacious 4bdrm, 3bath, private home above Kailua-Kona. Features a private pool and large wrap around lanai. Perfect for families with children or couples. Close to downtown Kona and all the amenities on the Big Island.

The space

Hibiscus Hale (HAW-lay) is large, bright and elegantly appointed. A modern Hawaiian home, it's 2800 sq.ft may be easily shared by two families or 3 or 4 couples. Yet it retains a sense of seclusion and privacy. In an upscale neighborhood on the slope of Mauna Loa, the wide lanai overlooks the yard, the sparkling pool, palms and landscaped tropical greenery. It is directly above downtown quaint, active Kailua Village, which is situated along a wide bay on the Kona Coast.

From Kona airport (KOA) make an easy drive nine miles south on Hwy 11 into Kailua Village, then eight blocks up the mountainside. The circular driveway has a covered portico. The entry leads to the inviting ambiance of the upper living space and lanai level, appointed with both modern art and traditional Hawaiian decor.

The glass back and side walls slide to open the living room to the tropical views of the lanai. There are large leather couches, a 60in. television, lounge chairs, and large stone coffee table. The dining area opens to the veranda view. Wood and glass cabinetry, dually accessible from dining area and kitchen, contains enough fine dinner ware to accommodate the largest group. The kitchen is fully equipped. It has a new gas stove and refrigerator, a food prep island, plus appliances and convenient gadgetry to suit need and culinary whim.


The master bedroom is spacious and quiet. It has a king bed, walk-in closet and private bath with a glass block shower. The bedroom has a high ceiling with a fan, air conditioning, television, window seat and warm wood window treatments. Its furniture, lamps and art pieces blend traditional and modern Hawaiiana.

The second bedroom, has a king bed, closet, ceiling fan, air conditioning and Hawaiiana furnishings to continue the thematic decor. There is an adjoining bath (not in-suite), again with a glass block shower.

Upstairs from the dining area is a carpeted cupola space with 360 degree views. Equipped as an office with high speed wireless internet, desk and chair plus lounge chair, lamps and small table, the room is a quiet workspace... easily adapted to a crow's nest hideout to sleep a few young pirates.

The lanai wraps around three sides of the house, accessible from each. This elevated veranda has a large gas BBQ, two porch swings, table and chairs. The left side brushes the canopy of our large producing mango tree. The right looks over a driveway extension with added parking space.

Downstairs the third bedroom has a king bed, closet, ceiling fan and AC. A sliding glass door opens to the covered porch, the yard and gateway to the pool. Adjacent to the bedroom is a third bath and shower. A hallway accesses a linen closet and laundry room with washer, dryer and utility sink. There is work space and cabinets with cleaning supplies and small tools. The laundry room with a door to the yard, serves as a convenient changing room for pool use. There is a storage room for beach supplies.


Also on the lower level, the fourth bedroom is the largest room in the house. It is carpeted, looks out to the back yard. It has two double beds, two dressers, AC, multiple ceiling fans and a dehumidifier. The room includes a recreation area with two love seats, a large lounge chair, a 48in. flat screen TV, wet bar, a game table with four chairs and a floor to ceiling book shelf stocked with books and table games. There is enough floor space for additional bedding if needed. (There is a full-size deluxe, self-inflating 9" thick air mattress w/bedding; takes 3 min. to set up.) An interior doorway connects back to the third bedroom. Another sliding door provides separate entry to the side driveway.

The bright floral yard is enclosed by rock and wrought iron fence. It has gated steps to the spacious lower terrace pool area. This verdant oasis is surrounded by palms and flowering trees to create a secluded tropical play area. The pool is large, 18ft.x50ft. There is an outdoor shower, a bin of pool toys, ample pool furniture and a table with shade umbrella.

Great space! Great for family or large groups! Great pool with lots of pool toys. Stocked with all you need for a day at the beach! Cheryl was immediately responsive any time we had a question. Highly recommended. We did have a few plumbing snafus but all was quickly addressed.

Big house with ocean views, west-facing for pretty sunsets, sizable pool, big deck, and plenty of airflow when there's a breeze. The upstairs living area an get pretty hot in the afternoon until the breeze kicks in again around sunset, but some rooms have A/C units and the downstairs rec-room stays pretty cool. The gas range was really handy to have, and there's a propane grill out on the back deck. (The grill top is getting pretty old, but we worked around it.) The main living space is nice and open, with a large dining table, full kitchen, and plenty of seating for hanging out or watching TV after a day of adventures. Check-in was super-easy, and Cheryl sent us a really useful list of local things to do, descriptions of restaurants and beaches, etc. We would recommend this place especially for largish groups or families.

My husband John and I first fell in love with the Big Island over 30 years ago when we were hired to teach summer school for a few years at Hawaii Preparatory Academy. This time allowed us to get to know the island and the people and helped us form lasting relationships. We just could not stay away. It is a magical place and we have spent many summers here with our family.

After years of house trading with families we eventually were able to buy a vacation home. One of our favorite things is to share what we know about the Big Island with others. We are happy to answer questions and make recommendations.

The home is spacious and we hope welcoming to families as well as multiple couples traveling together. We have had three other couples share our home with us and there is plenty of space. It allows for those wonderful evenings enjoying each others company and there is privacy when you want it.
