Aloha! We call our home COCONUT PALMS' - it is a private 3 bedroom 1.5 bath fully furnished house with an ocean view and it's all yours to enjoy without sharing.
It's a wonderful place to stay if you want to be centered in the Puna District of Hawaii (Kalapana), which is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
This is a sunny spot of the island where there is less rain! Although it rains much less down here, Kalapana remains green and beautiful.
Many people come to Kalapana to visit Volcano National Park - home of Kilauea and the periodic lava flows just a short distance from us.
There are also Hawaiian jungles, tropical rain forests, beautiful coastal views, geothermically heated ponds, snorkeling, whale watching w/ dolphins that migrate to the warm Hawaiian waters from Alaska.
You can often see them from land swimming off our beautiful coastal park and in the Kehena Beach area.
Many of my tenants tell me that they were able to swim w/ the dolphins and you can too.
This is the place for water lovers - we have what you need at no extra charge: snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, noodles for your swimming pleasure. Did you know that the best and safest snorkeling area is just down the road in the Kapoho Tide pools?
You can easily navigate all of these places from Coconut Palms, it has come to be a very popular spot 'right in the center of all of these attractions'.
For those of you who are seeking night time entertainment, check out 'Uncles Outdoor Hawaii Bar' if you want to sip a beer, listen to live Hawaiian music, eat great food and enjoy a farmers market at the same time.
WHATS NEW ?
1) At Coconut Palms of Kalapana - parents, we have a kids park - just a block away.
2) Beautiful spiral staircase that takes you to the 3rd floor bedroom w/ a double bed, TV, phone, fridge and spectacular 120 degree panoramic view of the ocean and Puna coast. Picture yourself and a loved one w/ a glass of champagne, having a romantic evening gazing at the millions of stars from our love loft. It is surrounded by windows and naturally well ventilated by the Trade Winds that blow through our area.
3) UPDATE 2/2013: The lava flow is flowing again in to the sea - come and see this exciting and amazing natural event that many people just dream about !
4) High Speed internet FREE..bring your laptop !
Coconut Palms is located in Kalapana - Sea view Estates on the Hilo side of the Big Island of Hawaii and just a walk to the world famous Kehena Black Sand Beach.
Pohoiki Point and the famous Kapoho snorkeling waters are also near by and remain popular snorkeling, surfing and swimming areas. Compare our rates to those in Kapoho - you will love our place.
Kilauea Volcano is just a 45-60 minute drive where you can walk through Thurstons Lava Tube and look in to Kilauea Caldera.
The unit is situated in a safe, quiet & friendly Hawaiian neighborhood off Kalapana-Kapoho Rd.

Loved Puna & Coconut Palms
Loved Puna & Coconut Palms
We really enjoyed our stay at Coconut Palms! It is on a rural side of the island and did not disappoint being in a neat location. We loved going to the local farmer's market only 1/2 block away on Saturday and the sheer beauty of the area was lovely. The home had two rented studios as well and we had fun meeting the others that stayed there. We even had friends rent a studio and join us for a few days which was very convenient! The 3 bedroom home allowed plenty of space for our family of 5. Only two small critiques - I could not find the cheese grater for the life of me (it may have been there but I could not locate it) and it would be appreciated to have mattress pads on the beds for hygiene-sake and comfort. These two small things do not diminish or take away from the fact that we were very satisfied with our stay and hope to return in 2015! We felt the home provided excellent value. The photos and description were very accurate and the property was clean and comfortable. Miguel even paid my son $5 to catch a local chicken - which he proceeded to do (only for entertainment purposes, mind you). It was quite memorable to say the least! We highly recommend Kopoho Tide Pools for snorkeling (some of the best we've EVER experienced), The warm water pool, The Sunday drum circle at Kehena Beach, The lava flows visible only 10 minutes away in Kalapana. Tasty ice cream and grub at the Kalapana Cafe about 10 minutes away. There is plenty to do in the area but be aware this is not on the main drag - it's a bit off the beaten path which we sincerely appreciated and loved. Thanks for having us! See you in a couple of years!

'A Most Enjoyable Stay'
Coconut Palms now has 3 ocean front cottages at Kehena Beach in addition the the studios and 3 BR house in Kalapana-Seaview Estates. One of our recent guests stayed in one of the new cottages called 'The Gumamela Cottage'. We named it the 'Gumamela Cottage' as there are many beautiful gumamela (hibiscus) that surround the cottage. Our tenant wrote a note when he left and we wanted to share it with you. We value the communiques that we receive from our tenants and utilize that info to make our place even better. Here is what he wrote: We had a most enjoyable stay in Gumamela Cottage! The place had everything we could ask for! Having a gas stove, microwave, hot water, and a fridge to keep things cold were all convenient to have available. Though it seems that we were out in the middle of nowhere, you really don't feel that you are isolated. Going to sleep every night to the song of the cocqi frogs for me was very relaxing. I wish we had some of them at home. We had plenty of things to do when we were here - there is never nothing to do. We spent a lot of the time away from the cottage so it was nice to come back to it at the end of a busy day and relax. We will certainly pass on the word to our friends and family that your cottages are great places to stay on The Big Island.

' A Great Week and Best Bargain I've Ever Had'.
We have a guest book that we leave in our vacation rental and this is what Donald wrote. He came w/ his son and stayed about one week in our 3BR house and a night in the cottage to complete his stay. Andre, Thanks for a great week and a wonderful place to stay. This is the best bargain in vacation rentals that I have ever had in the U.S. The house and cottages are beautiful with lots of thoughtful amenities added. Thanks again, Donald

Wonderful accomodations !!Guest comment entered by owner
Wonderful accomodations !!
Carlos & family stayed in our new oceanfront cottage @ Kehena Beach. This cottage is < 1 mile from Coconut Palms at Kehena Beach and runs $110/night. This is what they wrote. Dear Andre & Susan, Thank You very much for the wonderful accomodations. You have done a great job creating a comfortable and homey environment. We loved staying here and was perfect for kids as well. This cabin feels very private and the way you have arranged it. We would recommend it to anyone, especially for an extended stay. The amenities that made it particularly convenient were the washer/dryer - which was a great surprise. It was a nicely equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. Thank You Bonnie & Carlos from Oklahoma City

'Lovely Stay'Guest comment entered by owner
Another of our guests left a note. We leave a guestbook in the room which we use to get feedback on our house, studios and cottages. We find the comments very helpful and we learn what we are doing 'right' and what we can do to improve as well. Our goal is to make you feel at home. Lovely stay, we enjoyed the bike and the sound of the rain. Also, we enjoyed the frogs and crickets at night. Mahalo S & B

"A magical time - loved The Island"
A recent guest came w/ her young daughter and stayed in both our studio and then transferred to our ocean front cottage @ Kehena Beach because the days she needed were completely booked at Coconut Palms. This is a note she wrote and left on the counter: Dear Andre, Susan and Miguel, Thank You for a magical time - loved the island and great hospitality...see you again - Thank You - best place ever !!. Have a great day!

Enjoyed our stay
This was an e-mail I received from a satisfied tennant in January. John and pat stayed one week in studio #1 - which has a queen bed, bath and kitchenette. This studio runs $300 per week plus tax. Aloha Andre and Susan. Thank you so much for everything. Loved the east side of the big island. I was going to share your VRBO site, but I couldn't find Coconut palms on it. We will certainly keep Coconut Palms in mind when we make our plans for next year. The $800 / month quote you gave us sounds do-able for one month. Mahalo, John and Pat

About the owner: Aloha, we fell in love with Hawaii while on vacation and decided that we wanted to live here. Can't think of a better place on earth to live that 'right here' in Kalapana. Come see it, you may never want to leave.
Why the Owner Chose Kalapana:
We love Kalapana-Seaview Estates which is a very nice, safe, family oriented community situated next to Kehena Beach in a very beautiful, remote coastal area in the Puna District of Hawaii - The Big Island. Kalapana is 'the Hawaii' that everyone dreams of and quite different than the city of Kona. We live in the Kalapana area ourselves and absolutely feel that it is the nicest part of the entire island... you will too. You may not want to leave...we didn't.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is within walking distance to the coast and has an ocean view. If you are looking for a great place to relax, hike around, and enjoy a remote, quiet, tranquil and peaceful part of Hawaii - this is it. If you enjoy farmers mkts, we have one just 1/2 block away.
