Naalehu house description

Welcome to the 'House of Shimmering Water' - A two bedroom, two bathroom vacation rental located in Waiohinu (2 miles from Na'alehu) on the south-side of Hawaii's Big Island.

With the island's many diverse climates, the south-side offers some of the best weather and scenic beauty. Many of my guests have said that they feel like they are on top of the world when they arrive to the house.

It's truly the kind of paradise that you come to expect when visiting the Hawaiian Islands.


The home has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths with an upstairs loft, patio (lanai), and covered parking on two private acres of grassland and tropical plants. The property's hillside location has breath-taking panoramic views of the ocean and valley below with some of the best weather on the island.

The interior has a natural wood decor with large sliding windows and is beautifully furnished with Asian/Zen-like furniture and artwork. Satellite t.v., a dvd movie and book collection, 'Netflix', wireless internet, a computer, clock/cd radios, and a cell phone for international travelers is provided.

Both bedrooms have a full-size (double-occupancy) bed with skylights in each room. The master bathroom has a stone tile interior with a shower/tub plus a large walk-in shower in the second bathroom. Linens, bath towels, and beach towels are provided.

The home is equipped with a full kitchen and a washer and dryer. There is also an outdoor BBQ and picnic area. The home supplies fresh county water (not water catchment) and has remote gate access. There are also several tame carribean sheep that can be seen grazing along the grassland.


Waiohinu translated into English is defined as 'shimmering water'. The town itself is a residential community located less than 5 minutes from Na'alehu in the Ka'u district of the Big Island which is approximately 1 hour from Kailua-Kona and 45 minutes from Hilo.

Local attractions include a nearby golf course, Big Island's only local winery, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach (Turtle Beach), Green Sands Beach (one of only two green sand beaches in the world), Volcano National Park, as well as several restaurants, galleries, and farmer's markets. The nearest beach is less than 10 minutes away and several hiking trails are walking-distance.

Also located a short distance away is South Point (the southern most point of the U.S.A), several natural hotsprings, Green Lake, and some great beaches for snorkeling and kayaking. Just one hour North of Hilo is Waipio Valley and the Hamakua Coast.


Since 2009 we began offering our home as a vacation destination to travelers and have received wonderful reviews from our guests. We take pride in offering our guests a beautiful place that feels more like a home and less like a rental.

Please take a look at our property website as seen below.


$100 per night, $550 per week, $1800 per month. Both short-term & long-term rental is available.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: In 2005 my mother purchased her home on the Big Island of Hawaii which had been a dream of hers for many years. She was an active member of the Ka’u Preservation that continues to preserve one of the last remaining black sand beach-fronts on the Big Island and home to an amazing ecosystem of sea turtles and other marine life. I currently live in Northern California with my fiancee and our dog, Sake. We frequently visit the Big Island during our free time. Rex, our caretaker is a former resident of Oahu who now lives on the Big Island and has previously worked with the National Park Service. Our vacation home is licensed and accredited by the State of Hawaii and we are members of the Hawaii Visitors & Convention Bureau (HVCB).

              Why the Owner Chose Naalehu:
              It was our family's life-long dream to own a home in this beautiful and relaxing environment.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You really do feel like you're on top of the world when you arrive to the house. It's truly an amazing experience to be able to wake up in the morning, look out at the horizon, and see 180 degree views of the ocean and valley below. The nights are just as beautiful with millions of stars that light up the sky. The location of the house has easy access to many attractions while still providing lots of privacy and solitude.
