Kealakekua Bay studio description


Enjoy a private separate first floor studio/great room with mountain and garden views at Hale Lana at Kealakekua Bay. Ideal for couples or honeymooners. Just the length of a football field to enter the crystal clear water for the very best snorkeling and dolphin refuge in the islands. The pristine Bay is a protected marine preserve and underwater park providing numerous water activities. Water temperatures range consistently from 75 (in Feb) to 82 (in late summer).

Hale Lana is removed from noise and traffic and is fully fenced and gated for added privacy and has a private parking space. A new superbly crafted tropical and luxurious pole and beam design showcasing natural woods, Italian tile, new tropical furnishings and large indoor and outdoor showers. The ceiling fans and louvered transoms efficiently allow the balmy breezes and scents of the Bay and surrounding plumeria trees to float through.


There are ample patio lanias to relax in sun or shade while taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean and surrounding mountains.
Located in the heart of Kona coffee country with nearby ranches and rodeo grounds and coffee and macadamia nut farms and mills as well as country stores and fruit stands. Post office is also close by. As well as historic old 'Painted Church', Hawaiian Ethnobotanical Garden and a wonderful ornate Buddhist Temple open to the public.

Rental includes large airy great room/studio with cable TV, secured wireless internet access, fully equipped kitchenette (four burner stove top, microwave, refridgerator, etc.), private patios, mountain and garden views, ceiling fans, plush Serta Perfect Sleeper Hypo-alergenic queen bed, washer, dryer (coin), clothesline. BBQ grill, all linens, beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler and off street parking. Wireless internet access. Non-smoking and not suitable for small children.
At present, kayaking in the bay is by permit through a number of tour companies or your own permit online at jacqueline.m.velasco@hawaii.gov.
