The space

Located on an ocean front parcel, this half acre lot goes right to the top of the bluff, where the ocean ends, sometimes with a loud crash. Situated by the tip of Kaloli Point, the property offers some of the finest ocean and shoreline views anywhere, along with a quiet, serene and sheltered environment, where you can let go and unwind.

Uli Kai Hale is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, fully modern home that offers not only 1,960 SF of interior living space, it provides an environment with a unique blend of natural splendor and modern conveniences for you to inhabit.

The property: The site is entered from a paved road onto a U shaped driveway that leads to a porte cochere, large enough to park two cars. From there, a covered walkway leads to the open air entry garden and the front door. From the moment you enter the house, the sight and sound of the ocean demands your attention.

The property has the following components:

The yard: The front yard is nicely landscaped with trees, bushes, shrub and planting beds for vegetables. The rear (ocean side) yard is mostly planted with salt tolerant grass that offers a pleasant lawn area where you can sit, or lay down on and enjoy the ocean. All the landscaped areas are speckled with natural lava formations that signify the true uniqueness of an environment where fresh lava flowed not too long ago.

The porte cochere is 28’ wide and 20’ long. It is attached to the owner’s locked private space and has a cement floor. It is part of the rental space and provides covered parking for two cars.

The residence: Most of the 1,960 square feet of space is taken by the Great Room. It contains seven areas. Starting on the right side of the entry door and moving counter clockwise around the Great Room are:
•A small office space: Separated from the rest of the great room by a 4’ high wall, it has a work station made up of a slab of 2” thick mango that is over 7’ long. By the desk is the broadband connection cable and telephone. A printer is located on a shelf, under the desk.
•A TV area: This backs up to the office space’s wall and has couch seating for three, that faces a 55” flat screen TV. There is also a DVD player, a cable box and a receiver in this area.
•The conversation area has a large, sofa, chair and coffee table.
•Bay window: the large bay window in the center of the ocean sidewall has a mattress for the cushion and is well lighted, providing an ideal spot to read a book or just daydream.
•Dining area: The dining area has a table that will seat up to six comfortably.
•Kitchen: The oversized kitchen includes a generous amount (over 20 lineal feet) of granite topped counter space, and more than ample amount of storage drawers for everything from silverware, dishes and glasses, to seasonings, barbecue tools, etc. There are also a side by side full sized refrigerator and freezer, a four burner electric stove and oven, microwave and large sink. Close by is a 4’x4’ food preparation island which includes a second sink.
•Pantry: A large, walk-in pantry is adjacent to the kitchen and on its numerous shelves are supplies, tools and appliances, such a zojiroshi multi-function rice cooker, a large electric pot for slow cooking, an electric griddle, etc.

The balance of the house is taken up by the two bedrooms and bathrooms.

•Both bedrooms have queen sized beds and large walk-in closets. The master bedroom has an ocean view and an en suite bathroom. The bathroom has a 9’ granite counter with twin glass wash basins and a generous shower area. It also houses the clothes washer and dryer.

•The second bathroom is accessible from both the second bedroom and the living room. It too offers a large granite countertop with two glass sinks and a large shower area.

On the ocean side of the house are a lanai and a fully landscaped and manicured lawn, where guests can sit on the grass or lounge in a chair.

When conditions are right, whales, dolphins, sea turtles, Nene geese and other species unique to Hawaii can be seen from the property.

A beautiful spot and a spacious, well appointed home. Comfortable beds, massive bathrooms and stunning views of the water and coast. Only downside was local Coqui Frogs that can be very rowdy at night but can be blocked out with decent earplugs. Definitely recommended if you are looking for some time away from the madding crowd.

Response from Terry:
our coqui frogs are similar to crickets and one gets used to them quickly as background sound. So the surf mixed with the ocean sounds most find relaxing. Please refer to all the other reviews where this was certainly not an issue. Most areas of the Big Island now have these coqui frogs... Price of living in Paradise :) I have them at my home and we sleep like babies every night...

This is a beautiful place. Our only real problem was that we weren't in town long enough to enjoy the house itself. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the view. Property is as represented in photos. You won't be disappointed. Excellent floor plan. Terry was very easy to deal with; very responsive and friendly.

What you see in the photos is exactly what you get- a beautiful, relaxing oasis perfect for your next holiday. Whether your travelling with family or friends, I would recommend this to all as it's very spacious and comfortable. Terry was always quick to reply to any queries I had which made me feel very confident with choosing to stay here. And the house included a few extra trinkets including the game Bochi which we all enjoyed. Would definitely stay here again!

The house is an architectural work of art and the view is expansive, even better than the posted pictures. We loved every minute of our stay.
