Aloha & Welcome. Relax, Renew, & Rejuvenate … at the luxurious Kaimu Beach House. Savour breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, warmed by the glow of Pu'u 'O'o Crater. Place is a rare gem, once owned by a celebrated monk, with a near private, cozy black sand beach, just a minutes walk away. Rest & dream, in the paradise of rural old-style Hawaii …
Here you can immerse yourself in the serenity & power of nature with many opportunities to enjoy the Big Island's raw beauty, native folklore, & evolving culture of conscious wellness.
Kaimu Beach House is located 40-minutes south of Hilo in the rural under-developed tropical jungle district of Puna. The area is colonized by fern forests, rocky lava, plus towering trees of palm, ohia, mango, & monkeypod. Blooming flowers & fragrant fruit trees line the roads. Warm ocean breezes rejuvenate the body, mind, & soul.
Kaimu Beach House is nestled on the coastal site of the 1990 lava flow which destroyed the old-Hawaiian fishing village of Kalapana. Kaimu Beach House is just down the road from the place where the still-active Kilauea Volcano oozes down the mountain to spill fresh lava into the sea.
Situated in a unique micro-climate, the Kaimu Beach House has some of the best weather for the east side of the Big Island. Perhaps this is why the largest concentration of original Hawaiians once settled near by. The air along this coastline measures to be some of the cleanest & most nourishing on the planet. Savor the pounding rhythm of the ocean as you bask in the comforts of our well-appointed sacred space.
Explore the coastal cliffs on lava landscape in our backyard & sunbathe on the private black sand beach (no swimming). Watch for the year-round appearance of turtles and dolphins, with the addition of breaching whales in winter months. Lounge on the open-air lanai at night and gaze at the luminescence of the moon and Milky Way.
Kaimu Beach House features a master bedroom with private entrance to the ocean-side lanai, another master bedroom with private bathroom, plux one smaller bedroom with twin bunk-beds & access to the front lanai. There are two additional single beds on the lanai, which many prefer, for nightly caress of the fresh ocean breeze.
Cook abundant meals in the spacious & fully-equipped kitchen with double sinks, dishwasher, & plenty of granite counter space. Soak in the deep & luxurious jetted bathtub. Relax in a great room with simple elegant furnishings, & grand dining table.
At Kaimu Beach House, we welcome you with abundant amenities to support your wellness. Many of the mattresses are tempur-pedic, 100% cotton bedding bath towels appoint your room. A washer and dryer are available for your use, as is the option to book daily housekeeping services.

Awesome, Blessed and Magical Place for Fun and Healing
Awesome, Blessed and Magical Place for Fun and Healing
I spent a long summer and fall with work and finishing up grad school and needed a break! This lovely place was just what I needed. I spent about a week there and left feeling like a new person. It's an out of the way spot but totally modern in terms of accommodations. There's a new kitchen and beautiful bedrooms and breath-taking bathrooms! You're well off the beaten path so it's quiet and all you hear is the ocean and those crazy coqui frogs. It's a lovely 30 minute drive from Hilo airport and easy to find but once you're there, it seems like you're a million miles away. The east wall is all windows and you can see about 100 feet of lava and the ocean beyond - extraordinary! I loved hiking on the lava and hanging out at Uncle Robert's, a local spot less than a mile away. All the people I met were super friendly and loved to 'share stories.' Its location is also great for sightseeing. We used it as a base to visit the rest of the island, with great drives to Kona, Volcanos National Park and Waimea. The owner is amazing and took the time to walk us through the house and show us some local treasures. There's no TV or microwave so if you're looking for a waikiki vacation - go to waikiki. If you want a quite place to get some quality HUMAN time - this is absolutely the place for you!
