Property description

Aloha! Hana Hou Cabin-Motel provides an opportunity to relax and enjoy your stay in a small town in rural Hawai'i, on the Big Island. Located adjacent to the Hana Hou Restaurant, you will not have to worry about cooking or searching for a great meal. The cabins are located midway between Kona and Hilo, in the Ka'u District.

Take advantage of staying in a town that is located in the vicinity of various places of interest, which all exude the meaning of, 'Old Hawai'i'. Ka Lae (South Point), The Green Sand Beach and Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, are amongst a few of the unspoiled coastlines here in Ka'u. Sprawling ranch lands, mountain hiking, the famous Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and the new southern section of Kahuku are only a drive away. Explore lava tubes, snorkel, tour a coffee farm or the volcano winery and buy from the source.

Ka'u is the perfect eco-tourist destination , and the cabin-motel is perfect for an overnight stay when visiting the volcano. Eliminate the long drive back to Kona or Hilo and visit the other sights in Kau the next day.

We have only two cabins. Each cabin has a private bathroom with a shower and toiletries. The larger cabin which rents for $85 a night has a queen bed and a single bed in the sitting room and is suitable for a family or travelers requiring two seperate beds. There is a lovely private yard for you to enjoy lounging in the morning sunshine or relax in the cool Ka'u breeze that flows throughout the day. Grab some breakfast from our restaurant and dine in the Gazebo out back. Sit by the Japanese Koi pond or relax at the restaurant while surfing the Internet on WiFi,or watch your favorite shows on cable TV. Meet some of the friendly folks that call Na'alehu their home as well as our friendly, hospitable restaurant staff. Each cabin is equipped with a brand new queen size bed, fresh linens and fluffy pillows.Cabin 2 is a two room suite with a queen and a single in the sitting room. Floor futon available for child. For your convenience we also provide a small refrigerator and a coffee maker, which includes the famous regional Ka'u Coffee to brew at your leisure. A small cooler is provided and free ice refills anytime the restaurant is open. We can pack a picnic lunch (additional charge) and you can use the cooler during your visit. We also have beach mats and towels for you. Special rates for longer stays are available.

Hana Hou Restaurant hours are 8 am-7 pm (M-Thurs), and 8 am-8 pm (Fri-Sat). Quiet time is 9:30 pm-7 am. Smoking outdoors only. Studio Cabin - $68 per night.... 1-Bedroom Cabin - $85 per night with an additional $15 for additional guests after two people.We accept Visa, MasterCard or Cash. Please book on line or OR CALL 808-929-8426 TO MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS!! You can leave message and we will reply asap. You may also email for reservation info.
