Kealakekua Bay studio description

Welcome to Hale Pono- House of balance and goodness.

Nestled on the hillside above beautiful historic Kealakekua Bay, come to relax, rejuvenate and recreate. Be amazed by the magnificent panoramic ocean views. Tropical breezes caress you and incredible sunsets await you. Enjoy world class snorkeling, kayaking, swimming and surfing, all less than a mile from your doorstep.

Kealakekua Bay is a pristine marine preserve where you may experience a spinner dolphin encounter while kayaking over to the Captain Cook Monument for snorkeling in crystal clear waters teeming with coral and fish. Visit historic Napoopoo Beach Park and the Hiki-au Heiau. Manini Beach and white sand Ke'ei Beach are minutes away. A 3 mile drive along the ocean takes you to the awesome Place of Refuge (Pu'uhonua o Honaunau). Next to this is the famous '2 Step' site for unbeatable snorkeling and scuba-diving. Salt and pepper Hookena Beach is a few miles south, perfect for sunbathing, swimming, boogie boarding, snorkeling and perhaps dolphins again.

Explore and tour the many Kona coffee farms that abound in the area along with the historic Painted Church and the Peace Garden.
Stop in at Kalama's deli and restaurant, a 2 minute stroll from your door, for cold drinks, local cuisine, and hot plate lunches. Visit the gallery for souvenirs and local artisan wares. ChoiceMart is near by for groceries and the local weekly Sunday Farmers Market. Volcano National Park is a 1.5 hour drive away.

The studio cottage is elevated above the treetops to take advantage of the stunning 180 degree view of the ocean and Kealakekua Bay. The large private lanai is the perfect place to take in the incredible sunsets and watch migrating whales. Soak up the suns rays on the adjacent sundeck. The cottage is light and airy with two large french doors and many windows. Papayas grow outside your door. Inside is a fully equipped kitchen with a full size refrigerator, stove and microwave, complete with mango countertops and brand new cabinets. The unit boasts eco-friendly cork flooring and a spacious bathroom with walk in shower. The unit sleeps 2-3 people comfortably with a futon and comfortable new queen sized memory foam bed. Beach chairs, towels and ice-chest are furnished for your convenience.
Sorry, not suitable for small children.

              Year Purchased: 2011

              Why the Owner Chose Kealakekua Bay:
              We have been visiting family in Hawaii for many years and now have found the perfect place to enjoy and to share with guests.

              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              The area boasts some of the best access to the water. The several beaches in such close proximity are unusual on the Big Island. Swimming with the dolphins in the bay is the most remarkable experience. The snorkeling is unparalled.
