About the property

Panoramic Mountain & Ocean View. A Home With Pool. A Budget Luxury For Couple

Hawaii Tax ID: GE&TA -087-115-1616-01

Manaharmony Hawaii is a 3-acre property located in Kohala Estates on the beautiful Kohala coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, merely 4 miles north of Kawaihae harbor. The house has two separate wings - the main house and the in-law unit. Hale Mana is the main house wing of the property. The house is a custom-designed and custom-built home which was completed in September 2016. The entire property has an expansive view of the ocean as well the majestic Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai mountains. Spencer, Mauna Kea, Hapuna, and Waialea Bay beaches, as well as Puako Beach Drive are all within 5-8 miles of the property. The town of Waimea, Mauna Lani resort, and Waikoloa Beach Resort are 20 minutes away, providing ample choices of restaurants, grocery shopping, and resort lifestyle. Two scuba dive companies along with kayak and ocean tour operators operate their boats within a 10-15 minutes driving distance from the property. The area is considered to be the drier area of the island, receiving tradewinds which keep the sky relatively clear from vog (volcanic fog). Star-gazing on the night skies free of light pollution while floating on our saltwater pool or soaking in the outdoor tub, whale-watching through binoculars during the whale season, watching the moon rise over Mauna Kea, or being awe-inspired by the light of dawn coinciding with the moon set over the ocean are some of other magical experiences you can enjoy from the comfort and peace of the many beautiful lanais on the property.

Please note that the property has 2 separate vacation rental units. We encourage you to examine the other unit at vrbo/919179 before booking to make sure that the property suits your privacy needs. You are welcome to inquire about block booking of the ohana unit for your privacy if it is available.

Safety Notice and Disclosure

Our desire is to provide our guests with the authentic experience of living Big Island which includes the reverence for this sacred land. We have tried to preserve the natural features of the land as much as possible in the design of the home. Equally, we care deeply about the safety of our guests, therefore we earnestly disclose safety notice for your serious considerations and we seriously urge you to make the best judgment about the safety of your party before making a reservation.

The house is built on a steep hillside of natural loose rocks and soil. The outer edge of the pool has a 12-foot drop of stone wall. The only flat grass area is only approximately 8’x10’ in size and it is edged by loose rock slopes, i.e. there is no place for young children to run around. Every lanai (covered deck and balcony) has cable railing built to code and a 10-15 feet drop onto loose rock steep slopes.

Based on the location of the building structure, the topography and natural terrain of the land, we respectfully declare that in our opinion the property is not a suitable space for children under the age of 8. It is not suitable for any person who cannot swim. Minors of all ages must be supervised by adults at all time.

The renters must take full responsibility for the safety of your party, especially minors, if you decide to book despite our disclosure of safety concerns for minors and persons who cannot swim. You will be asked to sign a liability waiver as part of the rental agreement.

About Mary Fox and 2Papayas team

Somtida A Salim

Aloha mai e guests,

My name is Somtida A Salim. Please call me A. (You got it right. Pronounce it just like the letter A.) On behalf of ManaHarmony Hawaii and my manager, Mary Fox and her 2Papayas team, thank you for your interest in my beloved piece of the paradise. I fell in love with the Big Island in 2001 after having visited Kauai, Oahu, and Maui on a look-see trip searching for a home. After seeing the Kohala Coast of the Big Island, I have called it my home ever since. Before investing my heart and soul in the Manaharmony house, I had remodeled one near-ocean house and built another oceanfront home on the Kohala Coast. My two children have grown up learning to swim in this ocean. Manaharmony is the latest manifestation of my love and appreciation for the island and my years of collective experiences making a home on this land in paradise. My property manager and I hope that we get a chance to welcome you to our beautiful home. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. Mahalo nui loa.

Mary Fox and 2Papayas team purchased this house in 2014

Why Mary Fox and 2Papayas team chose Kohala Estates

When I was making the decision to buy the land, I sat on the grass field at the most scenic spot of the property for hours and days at sunrises, sunsets, and under the night skies. I knew that the land was calling me to it when I saw a magical full-moon rise over Mauna Kea while sitting on a beach chair in the grass field at the property. I specifically dictate the design of the house to feature both mountain and ocean views from every room. Every lanai has its visual and physical buffer from other lanais to give everyone in residence his/her own peace and personal space.

What makes this house unique

Panoramic mountain and ocean views.

The weather.

Short driving distance to some of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

Local residential area.

Privacy, peace and quiet.

Terrific stay in Hale Mana, Pahoa

  • 5 of 5

Wow ! Wow ! Wow! What a beautiful place to spend our first vacations in the Big Island. Hale Mana is perfect. The accommodation is all you can hope for (aside from not having wine glasses): pool, modern kitchen, BEAUTIFUL LANAI (terrasse), a lot of space for one family (could easily accommodate 2). Everything on the Kona coast was easily accessible (beatiful Polulu Valley, Hapuna Beach, Mauna Kea Beach, Pahoa, Kona). We were delighted by our stay. Our 3 y/o son still talks about The-House-In-Hawaii... Crystal, Mary, thanks for your awesome hospitability. The flexibility you offered us on our last day will be remembered. We will highly reccommend a stay in Hale Mana to all our friends and family.

Very Special House

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a lovely location and the construction and design are very well suited to the surroundings. So much was well thought out by the owner and it shows. The views are amazing, much better than the photos depict. The layout is great for a family of 4 and we rented the Ohana with my parents, which works well or if you have an extra couple or single person. Lanais are well placed and private, the quiet of Kohala and the starry nights make it perfect.

Exceptional house in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest rental house we have ever stayed in. The property is amazing with great ocean and mountain views. If there wasn’t so much to see on the island, we would have spent even more time on the deck. Bugs were a problem on the deck, but there is bug spray in the pantry closet. We didn’t get to use the pool since it wasn’t very warm, but it was pretty to look at. The house was stocked with everything we needed for cooking and eating, as well as things to take to the beach. The master bed is very comfortable and the bedroom is spacious. We loved the art work throughout the house. Stargazing is outstanding, especially on the nights when the moon is just a crescent or hasn’t risen. Some of the best beaches on the island are less than 15 minutes away. We hope to return again to this exceptional house.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week with another couple. We all agreed that this is the best stay we have ever had. The house is even better than the pictures.

We would come back again next year, but some one has already booked that week. I would recommend this place to Any one.

Fantastic House and Setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting, views, and furnishings. Clean and very comfortable beds. Kitchen and baths much nicer than most rentals. Absolutely unaware of anyone in the other unit. Pleasant country setting with quiet dark nights, wonderful bird serenades at sunrise, and incredible sunsets from the huge covered deck. The unheated pool is a bit chilly but works well for a refreshing dip on warm sunny days. Easy access to golf courses. Da Fish House in Kawaihae has excellent fresh fish. As noted in previous reviews, the neighbors do seem to enjoy their power tools.

Perfect location, perfect sunrise and sunset views, perfect quiet, perfectly designed house and outdoor spaces. Hands down the best place we've ever rented anywhere on the planet. The online pictures don't do it justice. Book now!
