Kauna Oa 1A


Welcome to Kauna Oa 1A – Ke Ea Ola, a beautiful and newly renovated 3-bedroom private villa located at the famed Mauna Kea Resort on Hawaii’s Big Island. Kauna Oa 1A is also known as Ke Ea Ola meaning Breath of Life and this property provides just that – a serene and comfortable setting for guests to enjoy the tropical surroundings and the amenities on offer at the nearby resort.

The villa has been newly redecorated to include all modern amenities, offering guests the ultimate in island luxury and breath-taking ocean and coastline views can be enjoyed from the property’s elevated location. Kauna Oa 1A is part of a gated community and is a 2-storey home away from home ideal for a family or group of friends. The villa is spread across over 3,100 sq ft of interior space and a further 900 sq ft of a private lanai.

The kitchen and living and dining areas are based on an open plan concept, bringing guests together. The space is bright and airy thanks to the sliding doors that lead to the lanai, ensuring an ease to indoor-outdoor island living. This space is warm and welcoming and the natural materials, high vaulted ceilings and pared back décor exquisitely complement the outdoor space.

The kitchen of Kauna Oa 1A is fully equipped and features modern Viking appliances, wine storage and an island. The wooden cabinets, garden views and muted tones are continued throughout this space, creating an inviting kitchen for the cooking enthusiasts of the group. For evenings when you do not feel like cooking, our Concierge Team will be happy to organise a Private Chef to come to the villa and prepare and serve some delicious meals for you. You can get a real taste of the island from the comfort of your vacation rental.

The main living room opens out to the private terrace and the wonderful views via pocket doors. A tiled terrace features alfresco dining and a cozy seating area – perfect for guests to enjoy the Hawaii sunshine. This space is sheltered and features ceiling fans for guests’ comfort. A handsome built in barbeque features for guests looking to experiment with some fresh local produce. A perfectly manicured lawn, tropical plants and palm trees and a charming water waterfall feature and whirlpool set the scene for a tranquil vacation. A pool is ideal for taking a refreshing dip and its curved shape adds to the laid-back feel of this beautiful home away from home. There is also an outdoor shower to rinse off sandy toes after a day on the beach!

The villa features a modern AV setup, digital cable, Apple TV, Sonos Sound System and Wi-Fi. When you would rather disconnect from the outside world, Kauna Oa 1A offers the perfect retreat to sit back and listen to the sounds of the waves and the wind through the leaves.

For guests who need to catch up on some work, a dedicated office space is available.

Kauna Oa 1A features three bedrooms and can accommodate up to 8 guests comfortably. Two bedrooms have a king-sized bed each and one bedroom has twin beds which can be easily converted to a king-sized bed. All bedrooms feature an en-suite bathroom and ceiling fan and two of them have access to a balcony with ocean views. Additional bedding can be set up in the den.

Guests can enjoy the amenities on offer at two nearby hotels, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Prince Hotel and the beach is a short stroll form the property via private resort roads and pathways.

A 4-person golf cart is also included in the rental and is very convenient for getting around the immediate neighbourhood of Kauna'oa and down a cart path toward the beach to a certain point. However, guests must not take cart past the property line of Kauna’oa and must park in the designated parking area off the cart path.

Just a short stroll to the sand on private resort roads/pathways allows you to take full advantage of all resort facilities at two hotels (Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Prince Hotel) and the two best beaches on the island at Kauna'oa Bay and Hapuna Beach. The location of Kauna Oa 1A offers large white sand beaches within close proximity where guests can enjoy swimming, snorkelling and boogie and paddle boarding. The beaches have staff to cater for a wealth of water-sports such as kayaks, boards and gear and activities including a catamaran cruise or night paddle board with the Manta Rays.

In addition, included with your stay at Kauna'oa, is use of the on-site and exclusive Kauna'oa Country Club reserved for owners and guests of Kauna'oa only. A large infinity pool, giant hot tub, fitness centre and 3 hole practice course are available just a couple minutes’ walk from your front door if you would like to enjoy high end amenities in the exclusivity of your own gated neighbourhood.

Access to full use of all facilities with signing privileges at the Mauna Kea Beach and Hapuna Beach Prince Hotels, two incomparable white sand crescent beaches, two world-class golf courses, oceanfront tennis, spa, fitness, restaurants and shops.
