Relax in a two-bedroom, two-bath house with a large ocean view lanai. Our house is on a quiet street that runs along the ocean and has two parks within easy walking distance on the coast. You will find there are more walkers than cars passing below our lanai. We are an easy one hour drive to the volcano. There aren't that many live volcanoes in the world, and how many of them can you actually walk around on?
You are close to many places worth exploring. Hilo has old-Hawaii storefronts, a farmers\flea market, and cultural events (such as the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival and the Big Island Hawaiian Music Festival). And Pahoa with its mix of Cowboy and Victorian character with wooden sidewalks is close by and has some of the best small restaurants in East Hawaii. There is much more to see and explore in Eastern Hawaii — or you can just sit on the lanai, listen to the waves, and watch for whales.

Our home is elevated and we do not consider it a toddler safe house as we have both interior and exterior stairways. Across the street are 20 foot lava cliffs. We are pretty comfortable with people who have young babies and children that are 7 years old and older. Please visit our website to read comments from our renters - some of whom had children with them. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions....moreless
Our house is on a quiet street that runs along the ocean and has parks within easy walking distance in either direction along the coast. The sunrises are beautiful. You will find there are more walkers than cars passing below our lanai. Wait until you see the couple walking their white goat.

Our lovely spacious home is located in the Puna district of the Big Island. A short auto trip to the south takes you to the Kapoho Tide Pools, the large, free ocean front hot pool in Ahalanui Park, and through a lovely area that includes Lava Trees State Park. A day trip to the volcano (one hour away) can easily be done without facing any city traffic.
East Hawai'i is a fascinating place to visit. It provides a lush landscape, incredible geological sights (a big mahalo to Pele), a wide variety of activities, and a place to rest and rejuvenate. There aren't that many live volcanoes in the world and how many of them can you actually walk around on? In the area are many small farms producing plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits throughout the year. Visiting the various flea\farmers markets can be quite rewarding - just wait until you see the avocadoes - always ripe and the size of a large fist - yum. Papayas too, at 3 for a dollar. Enjoy your stay and when you return home, please feel free to pack and take with you all of the Aloha you can carry.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We area recently retired couple getting ready to move to our Hawaii home. Until we do so we are letting others make use of our home for their vacation. We take much pride in making our home a very comfortable place with all the amenities you could need. But you do not have to take our word alone - you can read the comments in this listing from the many renters who have stayed in our home.
Why the Owner Chose Keaau: Before we bought this home we had stayed in many vacation rentals on the Islands so when we set ours up we knew what distinguished one from another. Our home is different from many in how little traffic you will see. It is not unusual to be sitting on the lanai on a lazy Saturday afternoon gazing at the ocean and not see any cars for an hour.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The windows throughout the house provides an ocean view from nearly every room in the house.
