Hapuna Modern House – Hawaiian Luxury Resort Living

Perched on the highest point in the coveted High Bluffs at the Mauna Kea Resort, Hapuna Modern House is a home like no other in Hawai'i. Unlike the common resort-style architecture of heavy woods and granite finishing's so common in the area, the House takes its simple, modern inspiration from the work of Vladimir Ossipof who brought Hawaiian Modern to the islands in the 1960's. Hapuna Modern House provides each of its residents with the finest, most comfortable accommodation fully outfitted with all comforts anticipated. The goal is to "get the house out of the way" so residents may enjoy the views and natural beauty of the tropical volcanic desert.

As part of the Hapuna Resort at Mauna Kea, residents are a 15-minute walk to world-class golf, tennis and full resort amenities like fine dining, spa services and water sports on either of Conde Nast's "two best beaches in the Western hemisphere." (*additional fee for full resort access)

"The house was exactly as pictured on the listing. Every year we take a family vacation with my husband’s parents, his sister and her husband and our two kids, now teenagers who don’t want to share a room. With five bedrooms, it was the perfect set up. All of the rooms have sliding doors that open to the pool area, so we were able to go in and out as needed. There is plenty of seating outside, so it would the perfect gathering place. The views from the pool area are spectacular - again, the photos on the listing don’t lie. It’s going to be hard to leave in a few hours for the airport. We’re already looking at booking a week here next year - if we could stay forever I would."

"What an absolute treasure the Hapuna Modern House is. Our extended family had a phenomenal time at HaMoHo. It was perfect for the 10 of us, ranging from 8-78. The house was perfectly designed to provide enough privacy for people to feel some space, but it also allowed for the 10 of us to eat meals together, sit around the amazing pool/hot tub, and enjoy the sunrises and sunsets. We loved our time and can't wait for a return trip."

Fantastic experience with all recommendations from the concierge. We are so thankful to the owners for letting us rent this beautiful luxury home. Can’t wait to come back!"

Very good
"The house and location were wonderful. We found the activities recommended by the concierge to be lacking. The kayaking trip was a huge group of people with very different ability levels. We spent most of the trip waiting for others who were not as skilled or fit. A group of 17 people in one outing seems like way too many. Same with the horseback riding experience I would not take activity recommendations from the concierge again."

"The Hapuna Modern House is spectacular and exceeded our expectations. It is expensive but worth it. It is spacious, beautifully equipped, and the main living area opens up to a fantastic view of the pool, the golf course and the ocean. It has everything you could think of for a memorable family trip. We've rented many places both in the US and abroad and the Hapuna Modern House is 1 on our list. Kona Coast Vacations was great from the minute we first contacted them. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and easy to work with. They responded the same day to the few very minor issues we had. And their concierge, David, was exceptional in helping us with our tours. The volcano tour with Grant from Kailani tours and the boat trip with Ryan and Erin from Ali'i Ocean Tours gave us experiences we'll remember forever. Go with David's recommendations! They are spot on! On a 5 point scale I would give the house and Kona Coast Vacations a 5+!"

The house is fully equipped, from the kitchen to beach toys to games at the house, and is exactly as pictured. There is beautiful art everywhere, the beds and seating are comfortable and the outdoor space is wonderful. Many of us made use of the lap pool as well - not just for show! We've stayed in the area before and really enjoy this location, with the proximity to both resorts, and activities on this part of the island.

This home has every cooking tool and appliance you could ever need plus games and books. Welcome basket was enjoyed. Loved the aged cheddar cheese.

We really didn’t notice any excessive road noise. Definitely going to buy a bidet for my home after experiencing these."

"We could not have asked for a more luxurious, comfortable and private house for our vacation. The house is tucked away on a hill on the Mauna Kea bluffs, giving it both the most breathtaking view of the ocean and a ton of privacy, peace and quiet.

The house is magnificent, with a modern open concept and incredible décor. The large and well supplied kitchen and living room open up to the pool and deck, allowing you to go between relaxing in the pool to refilling your drink and snacks in the kitchen. The infinity pool is picturesque, and we were happily surprised by how large it is (perfect for swimming laps and relaxing on fun floaties). The pool area also has a hot tub – which we loved and made great use of. The barbeque, large outdoor dining room table, and ample seating made celebrating with family and friends a true delight. The bedrooms were stunning, each decorated with a unique theme and with their own in-suite bathroom. The king beds were so comfortable, and the bathrooms were extremely modern with incredible showers! Everything was easy to find and easy to figure out how to use (including the home sound system and amazing espresso machine). We didn’t have a single complaint about the house, and had everything we needed and more!

One of the most unique things about the house was that you were able to have access to two of the most beautiful resorts, the Mauna Kea and Westin Hapuna. This allowed you access to their pristine white sand beaches (the largest and most beautiful beaches on the island), comfortable chairs, towel services, and delicious food and drinks. You can also use the resorts amenities, and our personal favourite was the comfy beach chairs and stand-up paddle boards! The ocean was clear and warm, and we were visited by two adorable sea turtles. The resorts were walking distance from the house, and the walk took you through the resorts immaculate golf course. The location of the house also made it quick and easy to get to and from the airport (about a 30 minute drive). We would definitely recommend the Hapuna Modern House and we hope to be able to go back again to enjoy the stunning view, beauty and comfort that the house offers!"

"The first thing you notice is the view—the ocean fills the horizon. Palm trees and the rugged coast complement the beautiful blue. There is a telescope on site. We were able to spot a dolphin out there, right from the pool deck. Outside of the front door, on the mountain side, is a patch of paradise. The landscaping and architecture are perfectly balanced. This is a great spot for morning yoga in the sun or an afternoon read in the shade.

Inside is total calm. The colors and finishes welcome you to a vacation mindset. The owners have literally thought of everything! To many features to list. I’ve never stayed in a vacation home with a mahjong set—what a treat!

I stayed in the Fleur room—the soft and warm pink accents put a smile on my face, everyday. I slept so well. Falling asleep every night to the trade winds rustling the palms, right outside my personal lanai. And waking up to that view that never got old, not ever. It was too much paradise to close out. I spent the whole week with just the screen doors and ceiling fan—no AC necessary. Good to know the blackout curtains and cooling are there, if needed.

Another highlight for me was the outdoor, semi-private shower. It really makes you feel like you are at home in paradise.

I could go on and on about my stay at Hapuna Modern House...I’ll simply sum it up by saying that I can’t wait for my next HaMoHo stay on Hawaii’s Big Island at Mauna Kea Resort.

"Obviously, the jaw dropping views and absolutely epic pool are the first things anyone will mention about the Hapuna Modern House. Every night is a picture perfect sunset, whether it be from the patio, living room, bedrooms, or my choice... soaking in the infinity pool. It just never gets old.

With such an attention grabbing pool area, it's easy to overlook just how wonderful the front lawn is too - a quiet sanctuary in it's own right, with gorgeous landscaping and a neat sculpture you walk on that's suspended over water – I found myself relaxing and zoning out in a cozy rocking chair on the lawn, letting the gentle breeze really settle me into “Island Time”. And yes, the front lawn has a killer view as well (heck even the driveway does!). But it was all the other touches that really put this place over the top for me. The beds were well chosen, hotel-level comfort, even for a 6'6” frame like mine. Black out curtains in each room ensured that gorgeous sunrise woke me up only when I wanted to rise and shine. Sleekly designed en suite bathrooms are in every bedroom. The showers are huge and luxurious. It's all so well thought out, that it took me no time to settle in and feel like it was MY house. To that point, I employed both the indoor and outdoor chef's kitchens to make a meal for 8 people - and it was so much fun! Not only was it a real treat to enjoy such high end appliances, but the sheer depth of this cooking arsenal is mind blowing. If you need it, yes, they have it. Just ask my 10lbs of wasabi potatoes that needed mashing... sure enough.. there was a Kitchen Aid stand mixer! Chefs, bakers & grill-meisters out there, you won't be disappointed.

And while it's great to have a private residence, the icing on the cake was being able to stroll down to the two resorts and sit on the nicest beach you'll ever find, with full access to all their amenities: Beach chairs, towels, a dip in their pool, you name it, while the food & drinks get added to a virtual room tab as if you're a hotel guest. It really was the best of both worlds. I've been lucky enough to visit my share of luxury resorts around the world, and I can say without question: The Hapuna Modern House experience sits high atop the list. It was a blast of Aloha."

"We have visited the Big Island numerous times now and this was my most memorable trip!

We stayed at Hapuna Modern House (known as HaMoHo) for an extended trip with friends and I would absolutely recommend this accommodation. When travelling with a group we usually rotate which couple gets the master bedroom but this was the first time we ever experienced renting a place with 5 master bedrooms – all with ocean views and en suites!

The home is spacious and has everything you need for a vacation or extended remote working trip. The views, amenities, and access to all other areas of the Island are unparalleled in my opinion as the property is located on the highest point within its location. Being located near the highway meant we could easily access the North part of the island (check out the local store in Havi) or visit the lovely rolling hills in Waimea (I recommend Merrimans restaurant) or head to the airport (only 30 minutes away). The property is the only resort home below the highway that’s above the Tsunami line which gave me piece of mind at night.

If we didn’t feel like traveling we were more than equipped to have a great time at the rental which has it’s own 72ft infinity lap pool! There were times we didn’t leave the property for days because we had everything we needed to relax and have a good time. The property is a short walk to the Hapuna Beach – from the from door to feet in the sand the walk is only about 12 minutes and the hotel also has great restaurants if you don’t feel like cooking.

We usually never stay at the same place twice as we like to experience different areas but this place ticks all the boxes and I don’t think any of us could ever go back to not having your own master bedroom!"
