Naalehu house description

Aloha kakou and welcome to our beautiful 3 bedroom/2 bath guest house in the southernmost Ka’u district of Hawai’i Moku. The house has clean modern lines, a modern open kitchen with gas range and dishwasher, vaulted ceilings, stunning views and skylights everywhere. The master bedroom with a king bed has its own bath with a large jacuzzi tub, and opens onto a large covered lanai. There are 2 other bedrooms, each with queen bed, and a second bathroom. We have provided internet access, along with premium cable TV in the living room and 2 of the bedrooms. There is a washer dryer for your convenience, and a garage with direct entry to the house - no getting wet!

We are remote enough to be exceptionally private and quiet, but a 10 minute drive brings you the amenities of the historic plantation town of Na’alehu. 15-20 minutes away are 3 beautiful beach areas: Punalu'u Black Sand Beach (Turtles!) and Whittington/Honu'apo with full facilities, and stunning Kawa Beach which is newly purchased by the county and reopened for public access.
No big hotels or tourist traps, but you’ll find a 2 day a week organic farmers’ market, local style restaurants with live music, a fabulous bakery and a small supermarket. The community of Ocean View is 20 minutes away with expanded services and shops. Golfing is available at Sea Mountain and Volcano courses.
We are only minutes off the highway but a world away from the crowds of Kona. The climate is drier than Hilo, but more lush than Kona - 60 inches average rainfall per year. Our hale is surrounded by 1/3 acre of tropical garden. Settle in with your morning cup of locally grown Ka’u coffee on one of the two large covered lanai. There you will experience transcendent views of Mauna Loa floating over forested hills to the north, and Kilauea crater to the northeast. As you watch the sun rise over the ocean and illuminates the big sky. let your eyes sweep up miles of untouched coastline and sparkling water. When it is clear you will see the eruption plume rising from the Halema'uma'u crater, home of Pele, at Kilauea.

As your hosts, we will be delighted to provide you with detailed visitor information about the area. South Point, or Ka Lae, is 15 minutes away, where you can fish, hike, and encounter Hawaiian sacred sites. For the adventuresome, the hike to Green Sand Beach starts there. The famous Black Sand Beach at Punalu’u, with its estimated 1400 member colony of Green Sea Turtles is a 20 minute drive. There, besides fishing, swimming and snorkeling, you can hike along the coast past an ancient heiau on a section of the old Hawaiian road that once surrounded the island. The beach at Honu ‘Apo, (Whittington Beach Park), now the largest State Park in the islands, is 20 minutes away and features a large inland estuary that attracts waterbirds and monk seals. Kawa Beach is newly reopened to the public. The new Kahuku Ranch section of Volcanoes National Park, where large forests of native trees and plants have grown untouched, is a 5 minute drive to the entrance. This exciting new part of the park is just beginning to become known to visitors now that the Park Service is allowing public entry on weekends. Access points to the higher elevations of this spectacular area are within easy driving range as well. The main area of Volcanoes National Park is a 40 minute drive away. See our links for more info.

Whether you want to spend your days relaxing on the lanai, or seeking out adventures, we say to you: E Komo mai I kou hale kipa a na kupuna (a warm welcome to our “home that cherishes the elders”).
