Welcome to Hale Luana, the house of comfort and relaxation. This grand home is so comfortable you will not want to leave. Located just south of famed Honoka'a on the historic Hamakua Coast and close to Waipio Valley, Waimea, waterfalls, quaint shopping spots and ocean adventure areas.
Please note: all rates apply to 2 guests. Additional guests are $40 per night plus taxes. Maximum occupancy is 10 guests.
Our on-site caretaker is available for guests who would like a greeting and orientation to the estate and is readily available (but completely out of site and sound) to assist you during your stay. Parents please be aware that the property is not safe for walking babies, toddlers or small children because of many unprotected stairs, high-end and breakable decor. We welcome older children and infants (equipment is provided including a port-a-crib, high chair, pack'n'play and infant gym).
As you enter the 2.5 acre property through the palm lined driveway, you'll know you've found your 'home away from home'. Walk up the wide front stairs and pause on the front lanai to enjoy the expansive lawn and garden views. Then step inside and be greeted by the grand, open living spaces. The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open with a high, vaulted ceiling and wide sliding doors that open onto the huge lanai with an ocean view. Trade breezes flow through the plantation style house daily. Our favorite spot is the 600 square foot back lanai where you can gaze upon the ocean, dine on the teak table with seating for 6 or walk down to the hot tub on the deck below. The kitchen is stocked with everything you'll need for cooking 'today's catch' or farmer's market produce. The living room has plenty of comfortable seating for your group, a flat screen TV, stereo and music library. Additional to the outside dining is the inside dining with another long table and seating for 10. Just off the kitchen is a large reading room with 4 comfy chairs and ottomans and a full library to indulge in.
While the living spaces of the house are all open concept, the 4 bedrooms are each contained in one of the four corners of the house for utmost privacy. Both the Master Bedroom and Bedroom 2 have king size beds, en-suite bathroom, flat screen TV and access to the back lanai through French doors that are screened in case you want to sleep with the doors open and the breezes and sounds of nature. The Master Suite also includes walk-in closets. The Master Bathroom is elegantly designed with walk-in marble shower with 2 shower heads and marble bench as well as a soaking tub, a separate WC and double vanity sinks. Bedrooms 3 and 4 share a luxurious bathroom complete with marble tile and a bathtub with a shower. Bedroom 3 has a king size bed and flat screen TV and Bedroom 4 has a queen size bed and lovely garden views. Each of the 4 bedrooms is finished with high quality linens, elegant touches, ceiling fan and view of either the ocean or gardens. There is additional sleeping on a single pull-out bed in the living room and a couch with a firm, down cushion long enough for a small adult to comfortably sleep.
Hale Luana is the complete gathering spot vacation rental. With plenty of room for each guest to spread out inside or out, a large hot tub and 600 square foot ocean view lanai. This is a place you'll come back to year after year....start your experience now!

Beautiful home with excellent views. Home away from home,
We fell in love with this home the moment we stepped in. It has enough room for family of 4 to spread out. House was clean when we walked in. We felt home away from home. Tip: if you are coming to kona or Hilo airport, please do stop by at the grocery store before coming here. Nearest grocery store is 4 miles away. Who wants to leave this beautiful home to go get the groceries ;) This home is in very quiet neighborhood. Loved it. Thank you Louise for being so friendly. Mahalo.
Mahalo for your warm and positive review!
Aloha, Jess, Louise and the Hale Luana Crew
Fabulous stay at Hale Luana!
A REALLY nice house on lovely property, Hale Luana was the perfect size for our family vacation. The house is beautifully maintained and extremely well appointed, nothing lacking at all! Louise the caretaker is extremely helpful and responds very promptly to any concerns. The hot tub is a great addition and wonderful for our grandsons! We particularly loved the visiting cattle and geckos! We would highly recommend this property for stays on the Big Island.
Great area, beautiful location and Home, simply the best people!
This is Nancy and my second trip to Honokaa. We love this small town for its charm, slow pace and kind people. If you like fast, traffic and lots of people stay in Kona. This is the perfect location from which to explore the island, fifty minutes to charming Hilo, just over an hour to Kona and you are close to Waipio Valley and many beautiful waterfalls and vibrant nature trails.
Hale Launa is a beautiful home. You would think that the owners just stepped out for a few days and have left you with all the goodies necessary to feel at home and at ease. This house is perfectly appointed, large and spacious, and has a wonderful lenai from which you can enjoy beautiful scenery and the ocean. We saw whales twice will here.
Louise is incredible, she is unobtrusive and out of sight, yet responsed quickly to any questions you may have.
Treat yourself. Enjoy the local food, people, beauty and beautiful Hale Launa.
Thank you for your wonderful review Douglas! We cherished your visit and so thrilled you appreciate Honokaa and our calm way of life here.
We can't wait to wee you again.
Aloha, Jess, Louise and the Hale Luana Crew
Amazing Vacation Home on the Big Island!
What a perfect place to stay on the best Hawaiian Island!
Thank you to Louise (the Caretaker) who sent me information on all of the activities we were interested in doing before our arrival. We were able to book what we wanted (zip line, snorkeling with manta rays, exploring Waipio Valley on horseback, a morning and afternoon on a catamaran in Kealakekua Bay). We were centrally located for everything we wanted to do, coming back to cool breezes every day!
The drive to Hapuna beach (amazingly beautiful!) was about 40 minutes, through mostly pastureland, woods and the town of Kamuela in Waimea. Next visit, we plan to do a lot of hiking and explore the many state parks and different climates all found on one big island.
The Big Island is now our favorite; beautiful, uncrowded beaches, no traffic to speak of outside the two cities and much more relaxing than Oahu, where we always went for decades.
We'll definitely be back again and recommend Hale Luana to travelers who want a special (comfortable and clean) place on the Big Island.
Beautiful home and views
Beautiful home with great views, nice open floor plan, will definitely come back!
House was awesome. Our favourite part was the covered patio.Lots of space for our family of 7.
Location was really nice with a good view. The bedrooms were awesome and the ensuite shower was amazing. We would definitely stay here again.
Awesome, thanks Debbie! We love that ocean view lanai too! So great to relax on after a tough day touring Hawaii (wink).
Aloha, Jess and the Hale Luana Crew
