Want to get away? These two retreats in Hualālai Resort will make COVID-19 seem lightyears away. And you’ll rarely have to leave home. Today’s Splurge vs. Steal takes us to one of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii’s most treasured resorts. Each distinct offering has world-class golf, pools, and tranquil views but with price points that are miles apart. Which is more you?
Splurge: Hualālai Resort Treasure On 8th Fairway With Ocean Views
Now here is a worthy splurge if we’ve ever seen one! The four-bedroom, four-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is like living in your own little paradise. It was custom built with indigenous ohia wood columns, single hung wood framed windows, and artisan tiles in the pool, for a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that stays true to its surroundings. And the location? Unbelievable!
First off, it sits on the 8th fairway of Hualālai’s Members’ only Ke‘olu Golf Course, boasting dramatic ocean views and sightlines of Mauna Kea Mountain.
The Kona Coast prize spans 6,456 square feet on the inside and comes elegantly finished. But outside, the real show begins. There is a 1,500-square-foot lanai, a sparkling pool and patio, an interior courtyard, and vibrant lawn dotted with fruit and citrus trees.
Back inside, there is a gourmet kitchen, gracious living areas, and a bedroom for everyone. According to the listing, “This home’s unique floor plan grants private access to all guest bedrooms from the center courtyard, while all common areas and the master bedroom can be found through the main entry.”
It also has a dreamy home office with Pacific ocean views! So many custom touches, including a painting of the Hawaiian islands and cultural icons make it an extra special splurge.

Steal: 9th Fairway Beauty Within Walking Distance To Four Seasons Amenities
For half the price, you could live on the 9th Fairway and still have an equally impressive view. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom stunner offers elegant finishes, plus views of the ocean and the Maui and Kohala Mountains.
We love that there are pocket sliding doors in the great room. They open to the golf course and ocean for a fresh breeze and plenty of outdoor space to unwind.
And nothing compares to the infinity-edge pool and spa, which will instantly put you at ease. It has a very private feel, surrounded by nature and takes full advantage of the landscape.
Even better, this Hualālai steal is just steps from amenities like Members-only golf, the Canoe Club, and more.
Decisions, decisions…now if only we could teleport here.
