Oceanview resort villa near Mauna Kea beach

8 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3.5 baths
Refresh both body and spirit at Ke Ea Ola (Kauna'oa 1A). Named for the Hawaiian words meaning “breath of life,” this exclusive Big Island vacation rental is close to thrilling activities from snorkeling to boogie boarding, and has soul-stirring ocean and sunset views. Its location in the gated neighborhood of Kauna’oa means guests have access to the amenities of both the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and the Hapuna Prince Hotel.
Guests of Ke Ea Ola (Kauna'oa 1A) are welcome at the shared Kauna’oa facilities, from the infinity pool and hot tub to the fitness center and three-hole golf practice course. To relax or entertain in private, simply step out to the villa’s backyard, which has lush tropical landscaping, a pool with waterfall feature and hot tub, and covered lanais with sitting and dining areas and a barbecue. Play a favorite album over the state-of-the-art sound system, or simply let the waves be the soundtrack to your holiday.
The villa’s newly renovated interiors embody modern island luxury, and more than 3,100 square feet of living space over two stories make this townhouse feel like a stand-alone home. Vaulted ceilings and pocket doors that open to the terrace keep the great room bright and airy, while finishes in warm mango and mahogany lend a welcoming vibe. The tuxedo-style sectional and round dining table are contemporary yet comfortable, and the fully equipped kitchen includes a convenient breakfast bar and wine fridge.
There are two bedrooms with king beds, two with two twin beds and three-and-a-half baths. Wood furnishings and trim and large windows or fold-away doors to the lanais give the bedrooms the same sunny, inviting appeal as the great room. In the bathrooms, you’ll find thoughtful details such as sizeable vanities and glassed-in showers.
With its postcard-perfect scenery and wealth of activities, the Big Island is an ideal destination for a fun-filled family vacation or warm-weather honeymoon. And guests of Ke Ea Ola are in the middle of it, with a beach just a short walk or golf cart ride away that’s great for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. Borrow kayaks and other water sports equipment from the resorts, book a catamaran cruise or paddleboard expedition or enjoy exclusive use of a country club that’s just for Kauna’oa owners and guests.
