Property description

'Pathway of the Gods' is the meaning of the name given by ancient Hawaiians to Kealakekua Bay. Five hundred feet from the bay, nestled among the palm trees and fragrant plumeria blossoms is Hale Hanai, the site of your next vacation.

This two-story four-bedroom vacation rental home will give you a taste of old Hawaii, away from the crowds, with a large private yard abounding in pineapples, bananas and coconuts. Designed with a family in mind, Hale Hanai would love to be your home-away-from-home. 'Hanai' is a word Hawaiians use to designate adopted family. When you stay with us, you are our adopted family.

Upstairs, Mom and Dad can relax and enjoy their own private living room with views of the bay. The Alii (royalty) room is furnished with a California King bamboo canopy bed, a seating area, and a lanai from which to view some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. There is a fully-equipped kitchen and a dining room with a table that seats eight, as well as a china hutch with dishes for that special meal.

Downstairs the kids have their own living area, where they can enjoy watching a video or television. Equipped with a small dining table, a mini fridge, sink, and microwave, they have their own space. The Dolphin Room has a queen-size bed and is perfect to accommodate Grandma and Grandpa or a married child and spouse. The built-in daybed is wonderful for a younger child, and it also makes a great place to sit and enjoy a book while the ocean breezes rustle the curtains and wash your cares away. There is even a portable crib ready for a napping baby, if needed. The Volcano Room sports a double bed and the decor has been heavily influenced by Madame Pele, the goddess of fire. The Observatory Room has a daybed with a pullout trundle bed. Two queen-size sleeper sofas (one up, one down) round out the sleeping arrangements.

Across the bay is the historic Captain Cook monument that marks the place where the famous explorer met his untimely end. Spinner Dolphins visit the bay daily, and there is unparalleled snorkeling in this marine sanctuary. After a day of sightseeing or kayaking in the bay, the outdoor shower will wash away the sand. The barbeque awaits, as you dine outdoors on the picnic table as the sun sets on another perfect day in paradise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Thom is a Sociology professor at the University of Hawaii in Hilo. Susan is a writer. We got married in 2000, after having both lost our spouses. Between us we have six children and nine grandchildren. We love to travel and see the world, and we love to stay home and enjoy the beautiful islands of Hawaii.

Why the Owner Chose Kealakekua Bay:
We turned the former family home into a vacation rental. The family enjoyed being close to the ocean when we lived there. A transfer to the other side of the island for employment changed our residence, and this was a solution that allowed us to keep a home we all loved.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy staying at Hale Hanai whenever it isn't rented. We spend most weekends there and whatever other time we are able. It makes a wonderful writing retreat and a great place for us to invite friends and family from the mainland. We love the historic bay with the snorkeling and the dolphins. We love the quiet feel of old Hawaii. We enjoy sharing the home with travelers for a memorable visit to Hawaii's best kept secret - the Big Island.
