Reopened for business December 2014. Easily accessible, yet away from the mainstream, a visit to Makana Kai in the small Hawaiian Beaches community is an escape to an earlier time. Quaint and private, this split-level apartment provides quality and comfort and a feel for the real Hawaiian lifestyle. Casual, indoor/outdoor living with open beam ceilings, bamboo and tile flooring and granite countertops accentuate the cozy design.
Pockets of jungle nearby echo the exotic sounds of myna birds, cardinals, finches and coquie frogs, while the open park affords an ocean view of an ever changing skyline and ocean movements. It's balmy breezes mixing scents of surf and flowers captivate the spirit and encourage both exploration and relaxation. . Dark nights display a star-studded universe enjoyable from inside or outside on the deck or private rear yard.
A perfect get-away to escape the stress of modern living or for the more active and adventurous many activities to enjoy ocean and mountains.
NOTE: This is a non-smoking facility. Not suitable for children -
What to do: Life is slower, but ripe with the diversity of the Big Island. One can enjoy rarely traveled jungle roads, creation in the making with new black sand beaches and varying volcano activity, or view the world from Mauna Kea’s Observatories high above around 13, 700 ’elevation.
An island of secluded beaches, tropical forests, and 11 of the earths 13 climate zones offers incredible hiking trails, scenery and viewing of exotic birds and plants found nowhere else. Vintage Hilo Town and Pahoa offer a glimpse of older Hawaii with early century buildings, banyan trees, farmers markets and a strong dose of the Aloha Spirit.
A place of inspiration for artists, writers or spiritual reflection, you can totally relax, soaking in the balmy weather or enjoy any of the 101+ activities the island has to offer.
