About The Owner


Welcome to our paradise. We have lived on the Big Island since 2005. We built the Hienaloli Retreat in the beautiful hills of Kailua Kona. This is our second VRBO property. We know you'll love it here as much as we do.

Debbie & Burl

The Owner purchased this estate in 2014

Why The Owner chose Kailua-Kona

This is a unique property perfect for large family gatherings or just someone wanting a private oasis. Situated on an acre with lots of mature landscaping and plenty of room to spread out and relax. We built this home with the intent of creating the perfect Hawaii get away experience.

What makes this estate unique

Amazing sunset, ocean and mountain views. An acre of beautiful monkeypod trees and native Hawaiian plants. Close to town but secluded wooded setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Debbie and Burl,

We wanted to thank you and tell you how amazing our stay was, it went by way to fast!

You retreat is amazing and is so well laid out and we had everything we needed for the most enjoyable stay.

The sunsets and the views feel like the best on the island.

The accommodations were perfect for our family and we had lots of room!

The rooms are adorable and well furnished--we love your decorating and all the extras. It has that true Hawaiian feel.

Our most favorite hangout was the large open living area and entertaining space! We love to cook and it all worked out great --especially the new open "grill" that we got to christen with our bacon and egg burritos!

The property was peaceful and just wonderful to do everything outside. My husband fell in love with the outdoor shower!

It was hard coming back to reality of living inside.

We also appreciated having a washer and dryer and you were so accommodating by giving us recommendations for the most amazing restaurants and beaches.

Thank you again and we will definitely be back soon! We also have several groups of friends that will be contacting you for openings and reservations.

Best family stay ever, and we’ve been to lots of places in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect for our family, kids & grandkids. Quiet, fenced, safe for the kids to explore, discover geiko friends, find treasures. Pool was too chilly for the grandparents, but the kids had fun. Lots of space to congregate in the outdoor kitchen, and private units to get alone when needed. Warm welcome from Burl & Debbie with a welcome basket of fruit, coffee, treasures for the kids. Burl and Debbie live just next door and we’re available by phone or text for any questions we might have. They helped us find any tourist events we wanted (best helicopter over the lava) and even provided a sweet pineapple from their place. We’ll definitely be back again!

Pictures don't do this place justice! Spacious, gorgeous and very convenient for all your needs.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 that stayed here and were more than impressed by the accommodations and grounds. It had everything we could have asked for and more! The owners were very generous and If we needed anything they were right there without hesitation. I'd recommend this place to any large group, and you won't be disappointed!

Fantastic place to stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an awesome stay at Deb and Burl's place. It is the perfect setup for big family/group trip. My husband and I and our extended family (14 total) stayed for just over a week. The grounds are stunning, every day we found a new plant or flower on the property that was just gorgeous. We all agreed we could live in the outdoor living area/lanai. We would get up early in the morning to meet and have coffee out there and that is where we would spend our time in the evening before bed enjoying the perfect hillside breeze. The view is beautiful and the rooms were very clean and inviting. Deb and Burl could not have been more helpful throughout the planning process and during our stay. They would check on us throughout our stay and we always enjoyed their company. They make you feel like you are part of their family. The property is only a few minutes up the hill from Kaillua-Kona which was the perfect location for everything we wanted to do. The property had plenty of parking for our vehicles along with plenty of supplies for the beach (chairs, cooler, towels, boogie boards, etc) We were so sad to leave our time on the Big Island and would 100% rent this property again. Mahalo, Deb and Burl, for allowing our family to have such a special stay at your property!

Everything you dreamed and more...AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

There truly aren't enough words to describe how pleasant every part of this trip was. As an owner of a global fitness brand my admins and myself search high and low for a property with a perfect mix of luxury, privacy "away from it all" yet just close enough to not have to make a days journey. Burl & Debbie's Ocean view estate perched at the top of Kailua village was the perfect choice for the last fitness retreat of 2017.

From the time of inquiring about the property to the day of check-out there was truly no stone left unturned. The level of professionalism, attention of detail by the owners was very refreshing in what can be a crowded field of vacation rentals. Burl and Debb made sure that the property was exactly what i hoped for the attendees who traveled in from all over the us but truly didn't stop there. They were a text away should anything unforeseen pop up. Wouldn't you know that was never an accommodation needed.

The property truly had it all. Fantastic separate villas, a breathtaking view of the ocean, easy to find, a great surrounding area, beautiful pool, all the beach-toys one could want, a gorgeous outdoor common area and so much more. If you're in the hunt for a property that gives you the privacy you need while also providing a space for your family, business partners or clients to mingle at their leisure this is definitely the place. I look forward to returning soon.

Thank you Debbie + Burl for opening your amazing estate to my fall fitness retreat. Burl you truly should be proud of your craftsmanship. It is truly a work of art. You are an amazing duo and i wish you nothing but success. I dont doubt that this property will be very hard to secure unless many months in advance

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo Debbie & Burl for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Our experience here was special and the perfect spot to experience all the Big Island has to offer.

We felt so welcome from the very beginning of our stay - great communication in the lead up and a sign welcoming the Aussies on arrival.

Fantastic facilities - beautifully decorated rooms, the perfect pool, a great living space, outdoor kitchen with 2 grills, not to mention a world class sunset. Everything we wanted was at our fingertips from coolers to surf boards, pool toys to towels. A full size fridge + a bar fridge, washer & dryer, Wifi that was strong and speedy.

A few miles from Kailua- Kona - a short drive up the hill to great views and privacy - it truly is a world away and designed for maximum relaxation.

Debbie & Burl ( & Cooper!!) were the most amazing and generous hosts. A lovely shared lunch, money can't buy local knowledge, fruit and vegetables from their trees, even a card game, they really did make us feel part of the family.

Highly recommend and we look forward to returning in the future.
