About the property

Four-bedroom oceanview home/walk to beach

Please note, the nightly rate varies with the number of people staying this lovely home. Hale Wailani is an elegant home built with handcrafted quality and style, brilliantly designed for maximum outdoor living and gorgeous views of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, the Kohala Mountains and Waialea Bay from nearly everywhere in the house. With 3,700-square-feet over two stories (plus an additional 2,000-square-feet of covered lanai), this spacious house has four bedrooms, three baths, and two living rooms, making it ideal for larger gatherings of families or friends.

Situated at the top of a small, very private enclave, Hale Wailani is just a two-minute walk down a nearby foot path to a small, sandy beach decorated by nature with bleached driftwood sculpture against black lava outcroppings. It’s a stunning spot, perfect for snorkeling, sunbathing or enjoying shade and views of Maui and the Kohala Mountains. For the adventurous, you’ll also be just steps from the Ala Kahakai Trail, the pathway of the ali’i (royalty), and now part of the National Park Service Trail System.

Wailani at Waialea Bay is a masterpiece of site planning and house design, providing seamless open-air lifestyle, maximum privacy and spectacular views mauka (mountain) to makai (sea). Upstairs and down, there are breathtaking views of Waialea Bay, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and the Kohala Mountains.

On both levels of this two-story home, covered lanai run the full length of the house with multiple sliding doors providing indoor/outdoor living throughout. A graceful pool echoes the shape of the house, while rock walls shelter the grassy yard and the personal gardens of the master bedroom suite and first-floor guest bedroom.

Hale Wailani is just south of Hapuna State Beach, rated one of the best beaches in the world, and just north of the delightful beach community of Puako. Enjoy the peace and privacy of Wailani, along with proximity to world-class golf, dining and resorts.

At the front entrance of the home, you are greeted by Birds of Paradise, cobalt Blue Ginger and colorful Croton plantings, while songbirds lend a musical note to the tropical landscape. Inside, the elegant black-and-white kitchen has granite countertops, Samoan hardwood floors, a large pantry and breakfast table and chairs. Sliding glass doors bring the outdoors in, and inlaid-rock lanai matches the flooring of the full bath/powder room just off the kitchen.

A very spacious living/dining room provides views of the Pacific and the Kohala Mountains. Here, too, sliders open to the lanai, yard and pool, which are sheltered by a rock wall and tall gate. Choose to dine casually outdoors (a grill stands ready nearby) at the patio dining table or more elegantly indoors at the glass dining table. Wicker furniture with glass tops and island-style upholstery are attractive yet comfortable. A television and CD player and CDs provide entertainment. A mirror-backed credenza reflects the outdoors back into the room for an even more spacious feel. Décor includes artwork of Hawaiian culture and flora and fauna, such as the magnificent manta rays and delightful honu (sea turtles). Full-corner windows offer unobstructed views, especially great for wintertime spotting of visiting whales.

The first-floor master bedroom suite, with king-size bed and sumptuous upholstered chaise lounge, is decorated in soothing colors and Asian artwork and offers ocean and mountain views. There is a large walk-in closet. The master bath, privately situated next to a cozy lanai with torch ginger plantings, has high ceilings, a black-tile counter with companion sinks, and a toilet set apart by a pocket door. A huge walk-in shower/tub room is fully tiled with two showerheads—one for the taller person!

The downstairs guest bedroom also has a sliding glass door to a similarly private lanai, cleverly connected to--though separate from--the master lanai. Along with a king-size bed, the room offers rattan furniture and a large closet with a safe.

The second-story suite offers sweeping views of the ocean and mountains and beautiful sunsets. Another covered lanai runs the full length of the house, with sliding glass doors expanding the living areas throughout. Relax outside in lounge chairs or at the dining table for evening cards and board games. Or watch television in the living room, with plenty of seating in the large sectional sofa or on one of the tall queen-sized day beds which double as extra sleeping spots. Bookshelves provide a range of reading, including guidebooks and local culture. A charming secretary desk sits in the book corner for an inspiring spot to write letters and postcards back home. A convenient sink and mini-fridge make this a perfect, convenient suite for your teenage children, young-adult family or other traveling companions.

One of the two upstairs bedrooms has a queen-size bed plus two twin beds and a double closet. The other bedroom has a king-size bed, privacy from the living area, double closets and ocean and Mauna Kea views. These bedrooms share a bathroom with two sinks, shower/tub and toilet.

This corner lot with circular drive provides a 2-car garage and ample parking. GE and TA tax number W74489143-01

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, comfortable, clean and well maintained - everything is first class. It has lots of room so there are great spaces for gathering and spaces to be away from others. The view is beautiful and the beach is a short walk away and very nice and not crowded. It was a great place for our family reunion and the house suited every generation from 7 years old to 81. The rental agents are great people and very helpful. Puako is a little remote and just what our island family enjoys! But the bright lights are not too far away, if that is what a person wants.

The property for rental 598835 was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful with views of the ocean and the mountains! It was surrounded by flowers and breezy. The house itself was very clean and pretty. Beautiful showers and bedrooms and the living areas were spacious with all windows. The walk to the best beach on that side of the island was only a minute. One Minute walk! We would love to come back to this property!

Perfect Home for our Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and the access to Waialea Bay (beach 69). Every day we would go find a place on the beach, which wasn't very crowded and snorkel and lounge (the house had beach chairs and tons of snorkel gear). The walk to the beach was about very easy and short. Kids found shells, tried to boogie board (waves were small in the bay), and played on the rope swings. The view was better than we were expecting from the house, and there were outdoor tables and lounge chairs everywhere. The air conditioning really helped since the temperature was in the high 80's. The kids loved the pool and without a deep end the parents could relax. The 2Papayas team took care of us and had the house clean and stocked - it was home away from home. PS - If you stay here try eating at Kohala Burger!

We were two families traveling together - 4 adults and 5 children, ages 12-16. This house was absolutely perfect. The pictures don't do it justice as it is quite a bit larger than it appears. The outdoor space is plentiful and there are so many different areas to hang out. It rained a few days and because so much is covered, we still enjoyed the outdoors. The rooms are all sizable and the two main living areas are quite large. The location was also great, just steps to a nice beach (where you can watch the sunset) and only a short drive to the resort areas for groceries, restaurants and shopping. You can't go wrong with this house and 2 Papayas does a lovely job managing it.

Beautiful home. Great for our family get-together.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and spacious for the seven of us. Lots of nooks to settle in, and great views of the lovely landscaping everywhere through the window-walls in the living room and kitchen. Loved having the beach nearby. Had everything we could have wanted, and more!

A perfect house for a group or 2 families

  • 5 of 5

A group of cousins from Canada came together for a Hawaiian experience and it was perfect. Mornings on the beach with coffee, fun dinners together sharing the days adventures and space for those who wanted a bit of quiet time away from the group and a perfect pool to relax in. The house is well equipped and managed extremely well by 2 papayas. I highly recommend the property and the management company. Aloha
