Hale Kea, or the "White House" is a luxury 3,500 sqft vacation home located in the South Fairways of the Mauna Kea Resort. The home is situated in a completely private and beautifully landscaped setting with stunning 180 degree ocean views. The outdoor garden features a non-chlorinated 30' lap pool, hot tub, outdoor shower and a covered lanai. The home faces westerly overlooking the turquoise waters of Kaunao'a Bay with distant Maui views and nightly sunsets to dazzle.

This architecturally significant residence was completely remodeled with designer finishes of locally handcrafted sustainable wood, reclaimed teak and modern furnishings imported from Europe. The home uses terrazzo Italian Carrera slab marble and imported glass tile extensively. Designers featured include many contemporary and mid-century masters such as Richard Schultz, Eames, Phillipe Starck, Jens Risom for Pucci, Cherner, Chista, Buchfelder for Moss, Marcel Wanders, Verner Panton and Le Corbusier.

Hale Kea has a casual open-space floor plan with glass sliding doors that open every room of the house to the private outdoor setting. The kitchen is equipped with Viking appliances, a wine cabinet and water purification system. The living room features a media center with a large wall-mounted TV and DVD player and a Sonos sound system with speakers in every room of the home including the lanai. There are indoor and outdoor dining options, situated to maximize the incredible views. Other amenities include a washer & dryer, an extensive library and wifi internet access available throughout the property.

There are two bedrooms in the main house, each with a private bathroom and air-conditioning. The detached "Hale I'i" (guest house) includes a third private bedroom with a queen-size bed, an attached bathroom and an office that can be converted into a fourth bedroom with a twin day bed. All the bedrooms have air-conditioning and beds are dressed with luxurious Frette linens. Robes and L'occitane toiletries are provided in the bathrooms.

We had a fantastic stay in Hawaii and the house really made our trip even more special.  From the moment we arrived, we noticed so many details about the house- it really felt "curated" by someone who loved that house and knows good design....rather than put together by a designer and then left staged as a rental.  Really well done on so many levels and throughout the week we kept noticing and appreciating more.  We felt like guests of someone's home- not a rental or timeshare.

The kitchen was stocked for gourmet cooking in a way I have never seen from a rental- we made some amazing meals with the help of the wonderful produce from Waimea.  Sunsets by the pool were fantastic and the music system really added to the comfort of the house. 

We were honestly on the fence about not staying at the Mauna Kea resort- it truly was the best of both- actually even better.  Thanks again for helping to make this spot available to just the two of us.  We will certainly consider this spot for a future stay and recommend it to our friends and family!

“Wonderfully amazing! The villa is a dream come true. Wonderfully decorated, interesting architecture, so bright, full of light from the morning to the sunset. So comfortable and equipped with the best supplies and amenities. The owners must be people very raffinated and of taste. The house is so well thought out, the architect was great! Nothing is missing, it is even better than expected and so much better than a hotel. It is the house of happiness and I spent 10 wonderfull days with my husband and my 3 children that will stay in our memorry as our most fabulous holiday!”

Dianne and I spent a fabulous Thanksgiving week with our family including our two grandchildren. The house fit us to a tee. The living arrangement, the outdoor patio and the pool were all perfect compliments to the unbeatable view. We would certainly rent it again in a heart beat!

"Designers Dream!"

Great "designer's dream" house. So much style, but also comfortable! We enjoyed the killer ocean view (whales!) and the very well equipped kitchen. We will be back!
