Description from owner


Whale season on the Big Island is between November and May. Humpback whales spend their winter months in the waters around the Hawaiian Islands giving visitors and locals alike a chance to see these majestic animals in their natural habitat.

Nonconforming Use Certificate (NUC-19-387)

People call it the Blue Lagoon home. The official Hawaiian name for the home is "Hale 'Olu Olu", "The home of relaxation and comfort" which was recently given the name by Kahu Danny Akaka after a traditional Hawaiian house blessing was done for the home. The home is considered a great Hawaii beach house with nice Hawaiian decor. Park the car and walk to the beach. It’s a 5 minute walk to White Sands Beach (aka, Magic Sands Beach) and a 10 minute walk to Kahalu’u Beach Park, one of Kona’s premier snorkeling spots.

The Hale 'Olu Olu is a private home nestled in the quiet community of White Sands Estates. The home is built to feel as if you’re sleeping in the open tropical air and trees with detailed Hawaiian features throughout the home. The location is great for both the active person or just to sit and relax. After a day at the beach enjoy the sunset view from the Lanai and the living room or wash off the sand and jump in the private blue lagoon like salt water pool.

This family friendly Hawaiian beach house is a great hub for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, wedding get together and don't forget the annual Ironman world championship.

The property is dotted with palms, fruit and plumeria trees. The home sits in a friendly and normally quiet cul-de-sac in a friendly Kona neighborhood.

The Hale 'Olu Olu is a large two story home. All bedrooms have its own private bath and entryway along with a private lanai. Hale 'Olu Olu is great for birthdays, anniversaries and wedding get together.

*Upstairs: Master bedroom with a queen and second family room set up to be used as a semi private sleeping area if needed with a Baja couch (two twin beds), Hawaiian armoire and office nook. Perfect for young kids.

Downstairs has a bedroom with a queen, wet bar and private bath and lanai. A second and third bedrooms consist of two twins (covert-able to kings) each with its own bath, private lanai and wet bar. All bedrooms have a TV and wet bar. The beach home also comes with a full laundry facility, wireless and patio table for eight and an extra BBQ in the patio area.

We also have two Pak-n-Plays, high chair and three fold-aways for extra sleeping accommodations.

Other amenities include beach equipment, boogie boards, snorkel gear and three strand cruisers (bikes).

Amenities nearby are White Sand Beach (aka, Magic Sands, aka La'aloa Beach) 5 minute walk, Kahalu'u Bay a 10 minute walk for snorkeling, Kona Village 20 minute bike ride or 10 minute car ride, KTA Shopping center a 4-5 minute drive and the birthplace of King Kamehameha III and all the associated historical reference just to name a few.

Water sports are extremely big on the Big Island. Banyans, a world famous surf spot is on a 2-3 minute drive located at the 2 mile marker along Ali'i drive, Snorkeling can be done just about anywhere along the coast when its calm, usually in the morning hours. There are many launch points for paddle boarding and kayaking. Surf lessons can be conveniently taken at Kahalu'u Bay through Kahalu'u Bay Surf and Sea which is just a short distance from the Hale.

Some recent updates to the home include a new washer and dryer, new refrigerator, range, dishwasher, microwave, cushion covers, tiled lanais, exterior lighting, new flooring and new fans throughout the home.

Daily price of $449 is the quiet season price. Prices and minimum stay vary depending on time of year.

First two weeks of October - $795 a night. Minimum stay of 10 days.

Mid December to the end of March - $695 a night. Minimum stay of 7 nights.

“Great for extended family”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2017

This house worked really well for us in regards to the size and rooms available for our extended family. Unfortunately there a couple of things that were not great. The house was actually not particularly clean (it could do with a good deep clean) the outside separate room was very dirty, the bathroom didn't even looking like it had been touched. Also on the first night while preparing dinner we discovered that the waste disposal was blocked and my husband had to fix it. Also we found the neighborhood to be quite noisy at night. Apart from these thing the location was great and the Big Island is amazing.

Response from the owner Aloha Bridget, We're glad our hale worked well with the extended family and disappointed to say the least you felt there was issues with cleanliness. I can assure you we will be having a discussion with our home support specialist, whom has been with us for a very long time and has always taken pride in taking care of our hale. We normally hear nothing but positive remarks about the Home Support Specialist and this feedback would be the first that may be considered to be a negative. As for the disposal it was recently replaced and haven't any problems with it. I do know that pineapple remains and disposals don't work well together. As far as deep cleaning we do it often due to its closeness to the ocean. We would love to hear more specifics that we can follow up accordingly. Mahalo

“great first impression”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2014

Had a wonderful Hawaiian stay. This great tropical vacation home is spacious and clean. It was so nice to have a kitchen supplied with all you need to cook; pots, pans, utensils and basic seasonings were all stocked in the kitchen. We just stopped at the local market for food, snacks, and drinks and we were all set for a fun filled week! The home is located in a great area that made it fast and easy to get to the local beaches for our snorkel trips. (all snorkel gear and beach towels are available at the home). We seen so many beautiful fish and turtles no matter where we chose to snorkel. Highly recommend snorkeling to anyone visiting Kona! We used the refreshing waterfall pool at the home almost each evening before dinner and watched several amazing Kona sunsets from the cozy upstairs Lanai. Our week stay in Kona was an amazing experience. From our time we spent relaxing at the house, beach or poolside. To our adventures of exploring the beautiful waterfalls in and around Hilo, walking the lava tubes at the Kilauea Volcano, shopping and tasting local foods and fruits and we will never forget our deep sea fishing adventure with Kenny from Makana Lani Charters. We look forward to our next stay and making many more new memories here! A huge Thanks to Mike and Laura for being wonderful homeowners of this great vacation rental and being quick and helpful in answering any of our questions before and during our stay! We highly recommend this vacation home to anyone looking for a beautiful home to rent during their Big Island stay!

Response from the owner Mahalo for the great review! We're glad to see our visitors taking full advantage of the benefits this vacation home has to offer both from the convenient surrounding amenities and from the vacation home itself. We cant wait for your return. Mike & Laura
