Description

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.

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.

Response from the owner Aloha, Mahalo for the review and feedback. No sooner than we read this we had the knives professionally sharpened. This is our 3rd knife set in as many years. The closeness to the ocean is hard on knives to say the least. Microwave is also fixed. Thanks for the heads up. Not sure what to say about parking. We don't normally have a backout issue with two cars but we do when we park 4 cars in the same spot. Mahalo for considering our Kona Hale and to see you back again.

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

“The owners take good care of you!”

Reviewed 11 Dec 2016

Heated pool for cooler days. Air conditioner would be nice. A jacuzzi for cooler days if not a heated pool.

Response from the owner Mahalo for the 5 star rating. Heated pool. AC and a Jacuzzi are all nice amenities but the issue is the extremely high cost of the islands electricity. The only cool months on the island (relatively speaking mid 70's) is December to January so these are the preferred months for heating the pool. We're currently looking into solar for the pool which is not in the budget yet so sometime in 2017 maybe. As for AC, this will not work in the hale due its nature of construction. As with most house's on the island they are all single wall. In this hale's case the home is an open concept home with the upstairs simply screened in as you well know (we do show the hale has NO AC in our listing). The home was built with the old Hawaiian theme of openness to enjoy the surroundings from an experiential perspective. We are looking into solar to deal with the high cost of electricity and on the waiting list to be approved. Again mahalo for for your feedback and do enjoy your holidays.
