KILAUEA VOLCANO UPDATE:
Kona Hale Pili is located over 100 miles away and separated by Mauna Loa, a mountain almost 14,000 feet tall, from the current volcanic activity in the Puna area. The Kilauea volcanic activity has been occurring consistently since 1983. The current volcanic activity in Puna has not caused any significant degradation to air quality at our home. Recent guests have not reported any adverse conditions. Trade winds tend to blow the vog to the south and west of the island. Conditions at the ocean remain breezy and enjoyable!
Kona Hale Pili is a craftsman's masterpiece and a modern adaptation of the traditional Hawaiian pili grass covered house. Originally constructed in 1972, Kona Hale Pili has been totally renovated and appointed with elegant wood and stone accents accommodating modern amenities and a environmentally conscious low voltage lighting system and point source hot water. Kona Hale Pili is comprised of three separate buildings with soaring vaulted ceilings that are centrally connected by an open air covered lanai. A open air uncovered lanai and lush tropical landscaping adjoin the central lanai. Located direct oceanfront at the north end of Kahaluu Bay, unobstructed views are offered from Kahaluu Beach to Kaiwi Point at the end of Kailua Bay. Enjoy watching the surfers at the Kahaluu surf break, reef fish and turtles, spinner dolphins and breaching whales, in season, and spectacular green flash sunsets. Kahaluu Bay is accessible adjacent to Kona Hale Pili for experienced water persons, or by an easy five minute walk to Kahaluu Beach. Kahaluu Bay is renowned for its plentiful tropical fish and green sea turtles. Kona Hale Pili is now available as a vacation rental. Take the virtual tour to fully experience the property.
