"What a beautiful home! We loved everything about our stay at Heart of Hualalai. The moment you walk through the front door it feels like home. The kitchen is high end, well stocked, and organized. They’ve thought of everything at this property. You won’t have to worry about beach umbrellas, coolers, dry bags, snorkeling gear, beach chairs or towels. It’s all there!! We also loved the decor, it’s vibrant, tropical and refined. Throughout our trip I kept finding small details about the property that added to the charm. The view is amazing! I had my coffee on the patio of the master suite everyday, listening to the birds and looking out at the ocean, so wonderful. We traveled with our two small children and never worried once for their safety. The gorgeous pool/spa area is fully secured, it gives parents peace of mind. Our family spent hours in the pool area, it was a huge hit! They’ve thought of everything at this property, there’s plenty of seating and pool toys. There’s also a pizza oven, BBQ and smoker on-site… we even had a pizza party one day and it was perfect! Need to get some work done? They’ve got you covered. I had to take a work meeting, and it was seamless. The internet is fast and reliable, there’s office supplies available along with desk space in the master suite. It was perfect for my needs. The Host has every detail imaginable in their welcome email, they also have a binder available for ease of use. You won’t have to worry about anything on this trip. So sit back, relax and enjoy the Heart of Hualalai."

"We cannot say enough about all this property has to offer! The owners have created a special little paradise on the big island, away from the bustle of the tourist areas but close enough to explore with a short drive. The pictures online do not capture all that it has to offer. From a gourmet kitchen - outfitted with all the equipment and those sundry items needed if you wish to cook, very comfortable bedrooms, office area, exercise area, tv's, wifi, charging stations, sonos, every detail . . . and local photographs and artwork everywhere you look! Even items for the beach - chairs, boogie boards, etc. It is apparent that the owners also spend time here and very extraordinary that they are prepared to share all they have to offer. We appreciated all the extras that make this a home away from home. This house is so unique and inviting from the moment you drive up with decorating accents to welcome you for your stay. Hats off to the owners of this property! Without question a 10 out of 10 vacation property!"

"This home is absolutely fabulous! The photos on the website are beautiful but they do not do the place justice. The vistas are breathtaking, from the immense tropical garden surrounding the house to the miles of Kona coastline seen from the lanais. Every room in the home has similar views, including two of the bathrooms. The owners thought of every detail to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Abundant toiletries, bath towels, beach towels, paper goods, exercise equipment, beach equipment, etc. The swimming pool and spa are wonderful. It was so relaxing lounging in the spa watching the beautiful sunsets. The outdoor shower and hammocks are a nice touch as well. The kitchen is a chef's dream. A six burner, double oven, stainless steel gas range, toaster oven, micro-wave, professional cutlery, mixers, blenders, abundant cook wear, utensils, spices, flat wear, etc. A professional gourmet chef could want for nothing more. The only extras you need is the food you eat and beverages you drink. If cooking is not your thing, you are just a few minutes away from a myriad of wonderful restaurants and other pleasant eateries. This was the most wonderful and relaxing getaways we have ever had. We look forward returning to the Heart of Hualalai in the future."

"50 Days In Paradise
From the moment I arrived at the property, I knew it was something very special. Prior to coming, of course, I repeatedly looked at the pictures of the home. Well they do not do this home justice. The lush tropical trees, plants and flowers are amazing and all around the property. Fresh blood oranges, lemons, limes were there for the picking and were a great addition to the mixed drinks. Just walking the grounds immediately sets you at peace. Once you see the massive Pacific coastline from the balconies, pool/spa area, and other rooms, it will take your breath away. I never got tired of staring at its beauty. The home is so spacious, yet it is so warm and comfortable. The kitchen is outfitted with everything you may need to cook and serve with. The bathrooms have many toiletries available to use and they’re are plenty of towels. The bedrooms are quite comfortable, and they all have television sets, clocks and charging docks in them. The pool and hot tub were so refreshing. If you were heading to the beach, there were beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas and beach towels to make sure your day in the sun was perfect. The owners of this home have thought of everything to make their guests happy. They were also readily available if need be and their neighbor, Jason, only contributed to making our trip so memorable.

"The house made the trip feel authentic. Love the layout and hospitality you guys showed us! If I wasn't so ambitious I could have stayed in the home all day. From sleeping with a cool breeze (68 most mornings - we were there June/July) cooking breakfast and dinner while viewing the ocean, to being conveniently located to Hapuna Beach, Kua Bay, Manta Ray Village, and Two-Step. This house has everything. We were genuinely sad to leave. I'm usually happy after a 2 week vacation to get back home, let alone a one month vacation.
I want to wish the owners much success and thank you for allowing us into your home. They are people you root for!"

"This property is fabulous! It was obvious from the moment we arrived, and throughout our stay that the owner takes pride in the property and spends time there. The architecture and open layout of the house and property is beautiful. With so many screened doors and windows to open, all areas of the house maintain quite a pleasant temperature and allow you to feel closer to the surrounding nature.
Everything about the Heart of Hualalai is amazing and as advertised in the listing. The owners called to introduce themselves ahead of check in; they extended the offer for us to reach out if we had any questions or issues and provided immediate response and support when we did. Although the photos in the listing are good, they don’t come close to doing justice. We cooked often; the kitchen is in fact well equipped with the whole gamut of cookware and accessories for gourmet meals and with appropriate provisions (flatware, glasses, etc) for 12 guests. The balconies and patios offer a multitude of different options for dining, catching up and relaxing. We caught quite a few spectacular sunsets!
The design, finishes and art are so tasteful! There are themes throughout, and no shortage of amazing local art to look at and admire. The master cottage is so cute and functional; the den/office was wonderful to work in or watch tv before bed on the super comfortable couch. It felt like a retreat any time spent in the cottage and the breeze at night through the master bed made for pleasant rest.
The pool couldn’t be more perfect. The way it is located off the back of the house allows for great views while swimming, looking out over the lush garden. We really liked the adjustable RGB lighting, and the hot tub heats very quickly. The whole area surrounding the pool and hot tub has everything you would want poolside. The outdoor shower has quite an epic view too! The garden all around the house is well maintained and really established a luscious, comforting environment.
A few highlights:
• The kitchen had freshly sharpened Cangshan 17 piece knife set, Kitchen-Aid stand mixer, smorgasbord of utensils, quality Tupperware for days, 13(!) cutting boards and a good assortment of spices, oils etcetera.
• Woodfire pizza oven was a new experience and was super fun to make pizzas as a group
• Everything was very well stocked; bathroom products, paper towels, Kleenex, laundry detergent, trash bags. Pretty much all consumables
• Mesh wifi worked great everywhere
• The Sonos with 11 zones further added to the flow of the property
• Brand new pellet smoker AND four burner gas grill, protected from elements under breezeway
• The fruit harvested from any of the plants on property was very good
• System of overhangs from the roofs allows moving between master cottage, main house and ohana suite without exposure to weather
• Ohana suite was equipped such that a separate family or couple could be self sufficient
• Trash and recycling removed weekly
• Ample towels and linens for house, pool and beach
• Terrific location close to town and ocean, but up above the bustle
I went out on a limb and booked this property with no reviews, although the listing agency had great reviews. I am glad I did and will recommend the Heart of Hualalai to anyone and certainly hope to stay there in the future. Enjoy!"

"Heart of Hualalai is an extremely special property. The details throughout the house in terms of craftmanship and thoughtfulness ensure a unique and wonderful experience. The sunset views are spectacular from the lanai - a perfect spot to enjoy a mai tai or glass of wine. The new pool and hot tub were wonderful additions and allow for fabulous views of the ocean and sunsets. The location of the property is ideal, offering a quiet setting in beautiful Kona coffee country , but also just a short drive from restaurants, shopping and activities in and around Kona. We look forward to our next visit!"
Blair C. - Chicago, IL
"What can l say! One of the best vacations we have taken. The home was more than we could ask for. Every small detail was accounted for, nothing lacking. Spacious, comfy beds, beautiful decor and immaculately clean. Best location, close to everything, with beautiful views and sunsets. Stunning grounds, very tranquil and serene. A big shout out to the owners for creating this slice of paradise in Kona. Will definitely be back, we were sad to leave."
Mary V. - Los Angeles, CA
"It was so beautiful and peaceful we were so sad to leave. The house has everything, the kitchen is fantastic! The views are spectacular, sunset on the deck every evening is a must. We meditated in the huge backyard in the mornings and enjoyed long lazy breakfasts on the deck. Just 7 minutes to downtown Kona where theres lots of of fun things to do and see. We found 2 wonderful swimming beaches nearby. Just what we wanted, close to everything but far enough away to be out of the tourist zone and in a private relaxing space. Can't wait to go back!"
Deborah K. - San Diego, CA
"Beautiful amazing home with breathtaking views of the ocean. Awesome sunsets. Very spacious and comfortable. I didn’t want to leave. Great location with great restaurants, shops and beaches near by. I will definitely be going back."
Ronda D. - Philadelphia, PA
"I want to go back! If you imagine Hawaii, this house is exactly what your heart needs. The location gives everything you could hope for. Tranquility, seclusion, beautiful nature, beautiful skies and ocean making you feel like you belong as part of the island."
Jerome K. - Rochester, NY
"Wow, so awesome and better than expected! The online pictures are great, but you don't really get an appreciation of how amazing it really is until you are there. Yes, the accoutrements are fantastic and will help you comfortably settle right in. However, it's the stunning views from the all over the house, and especially the outside bar where you can enjoy a meal while watching the sunset, that will make you wish you could extend stay and look forward coming back!"
