Property description

Hale Hula is nestled in the heart of Kona coffee country on the upcountry slopes of Kealakekua. Located on a 10 acre macadamia nut farm orchard, privacy and serenity is the key feature of this wonderful Hawaiian getaway. Enjoy a cup of 100% Kona coffee while relaxing on your private lanai overlooking pasture and orchard. Our fireplace makes any cool evening a cozy and romantic environment.

The private, fenced and gated house is eco-friendly and is perfect for any environmentally conscious individuals. We are completely off-grid, yet offer all the modern luxury and conveniences while experiencing Hawaii at its' best. We have a water filtration system that makes drinking and bathing an experience to appreciate.

The Hale Hula kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and has a lovely dining area that overlooks the pastures. The spacious bedroom offers a comfortable queen sized bed. Sliding glass doors will take you from your bedroom onto the lanai where you can relax after a long day of snorkeling.

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.

We know that you will enjoy your stay at Hale Hula. It is truly a wonderful experience that will give you the ultimate Hawaii experience. We look forward to meeting you, and being your hosts here on the Big Island. Please feel free to contact us via email or telephone with any questions or concerns that you may have.

Mahalo for your interest in Hale Hula !!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are your hosts, Jerry and Dorothy Walsh. We moved from Southern California in 1988, and have been here ever since. Jerry is a 'retired' nurseryman, a lover of plants and tropical fruit trees. Dorothy is a retired nurse practitioner, who spends her time with Jerry, caring for the sanctuary parrots and orchards.....and Hale Hula. We have two children who graduated from the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Our daughter is a hospice nurse, and our son is an art teacher/farmer. We feel blessed to live in Hawaii all these years and love the simple lifestyle that has surrounded us.

Why the Owner Chose Kealakekua:
We love living here and want to share this amazing place with others. Hale Hula is the ultimate in privacy and the perfect get-away from what most people think of 'typical Hawaii'. Experience what and why 'local' residents love the Big Island so much.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While staying at Hale Hula, you get to experience a unique part of Hawaii that most visitors really miss out on. You get to experience all the beauty that Hawaii offers while having the privacy and serenity that makes your visit a true vacation.
