Keaau house description

We know this property is Top Picks… we rented it ourselves for three years then bought it!

Hale Ipo “Sweetheart House” has ideal accommodations for a family or several couples/individuals. To our local guest, this is not a venue for a large party or ceremony.


Hale Ipo is in a great location on Beach Road in Hawaiian Paradise Park (Kaloli Point) ~private, fruit trees and fabulous flora, short walk to ocean cliffs (sea turtles year-round, whales in winter), miles of ocean trails (one hour walk to secluded beach), and a panoramic view of Mauna Kea from the wrap-around deck.
The elevated living space is designed to capture the ocean breezes and sounds while providing tree top views of birds in flight. (There are large ceiling fans in every room… we rarely use them!)
After a great night sleep on our comfortable beds (tree frog noise is minimal), plan your day of Big Island fun including visits to Volcano National Park (active volcano), Onizuka Center for International Astronomy, numerous beaches (white, black, or green sand), waterfalls, scenic overlooks, and unlimited recreational destinations (guide books and recommendations provided).
Or be truly adventurous… you are in Hawaii- plan nothing and live in the moment!

e komo mai (Welcome)! Greg & Laura Garrison, Owners

                          The 'Big Island' is not so big! You can drive from one side to the other in a couple hours.

                          Renting on the eastern side of the island offers a retreat from the tourism and crowds of the Kona district, while allowing easy access to the rest of the island's attractions.

                          Start your day with a short walk to the ocean cliffs and visit the honu (sea turtles) and whales (winter months).

                          Enjoy walking the miles of ocean trails, or pack your swimsuit and detour through the woods for a one hour hike to secluded Shipman's Beach.

                          Explore the surrounding area on bicycle, or ride a short distance to the ocean cliffs at the end of our street.

                          The nearby town of Pahoa hosts a variety of stores and services. Take advantage of the large outdoor swimming pool at Pahoa Community Aquatic Center, no charge. Other local adventures include snorkeling at the Kapoho Tidal Pools, and a visit to clothing optional Kehena Beach off Route 137 (drum circle on Sunday).

                          Your vacation wouldn't be complete without one or more visits to Volcano National Park. Witness an active volcano, view petroglyphs, hike a crater trail, and explore the underground lava tubes (bring a flashlight).

                          Also plan to watch the sun set from above the clouds by the visitor center at the Onizuka Center for International Astronomy on Mauna Kea. After dark, stargaze using an array of powerful telescopes, then join in the nightly presentation and discussion to identify the constellations (dress warm!)

                          For an enjoyable day trip, drive the scenic northern coast to various waterfalls, botanical gardens, and overlooks including Akaka Falls, Waipi'o Valley, and the Pololu Valley.

                          Or visit the cattleranch town of Waimea on your way to beautiful Hapuna State Beach on the northwest coast.

                          Travel the southern coast to South Point (the southernmost point in the US) and hike to Green Sands Beach...or continue up the coast for kayaking and primo snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay. Spinner dolphins frequently circle the bay and often swim near or under your boat.

                          For a day of shopping and gallery hopping in Kona, cut across the interior of the island on the newly paved Saddle Road. Bring a jacket as the temps will drop in the higher elevations.

                          Hawaii promotes wonderful farmer's markets. Every Sunday, our local Makuu market features a taste of Hawaiian cuisine, fresh breads and produce, an assortment of art and crafts, and live entertainment.

                          For additional sight seeing destinations, recreation and leisure activities, consult the various guides provided at the house. For a list of festivals and live entertainment, pick up a current copy of Ke Ola magazine (free and available outside Island Naturals food store in Pahoa).
