Better than Oceanfront, this REALLY is ON THE BEACH!

HALE SURFS UP – An amazing OCEAN FRONT LUXURY ESTATE where your vacation begins on the waters edge. This very large and open contemporary home is as close to the water as you can get on the Big Island, ON THE BEACH and under the PALM TREES.

The estate is an ideal location for family reunions, wedding parties, anniversaries, special birthdays and other celebrations. Ask us about “special events.” This estate is literally 50 feet from the ocean and from the home you enjoy 180-degree views of the ocean and Kohala Mountains.

About Greg Gilliom

In the Owners Words: Hale Surfs Up is one of our primary homes. We live here many months of the year. We welcome guests who will enjoy the beautiful ocean views and original artwork that make our home a special Hawaiian getaway.

Greg Gilliom purchased this estate in 2002

Why Greg Gilliom chose Mauna Lani

We purchased this property because it is very unique, on the point at the oceans edge. We have 17 palm trees on the point, which gently sway in the trade winds. It is the only property with a private sandy area within the Naupaka hedge, providing much needed privacy from the public walking along the beach.

What makes this estate unique

The Sounds!! The back lanai of Hale Surfs Up is 50 from the ocean. Many homes say they are oceanfront, but they may be 1000 or more from the ocean. The soothing sounds of gentle ocean waves at Hale Surfs Up will be music to your ears. When the whales smack their tales in the winter, you hear them like they are right next door.
