With Kahaluu Beach only a short 20 minutes away, you will enjoy some of the best snorkeling that the Big Island offers. Sea turtles are often spotted there, and we will supply you with your snorkeling gear, beach towels/mats, and beach chairs.
Take a stroll to the top of the 10 acres where your hosts will give you a complimentary tour of the over 70 parrots who call Parrots in Paradise Sanctuary their home. This non-profit parrot sanctuary was founded by the owners to provide refuge for the numerous displaced parrots throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Truly an incredible experience that many visitors to Hawaii miss.
Hale Hula was built in 2011, reminiscent of the plantation homes of days long gone. The house is completely furnished with authentic vintage Hawaiiana. Many of the furnishings are rare pieces from the owners' personal collection.
Because we are animal lovers, our two friendly dogs have the roam of the entire ten acres. They mind their own business which usually involves keeping track of the horses and cattle on neighboring properties.
Because we are off-grid, we do not have cable access. We do have Wireless Internet, a television with DVD player, and plenty of DVD's that you can borrow. With great cell phone reception, you still will be able to access your calls and have communication.
