We are extremely lucky to be located right across the street from the ocean with breaktaking views, and only steps to the famous Kehena Beach, one of the few remaining black sand beaches on Hawai'i Island.
Kehena Beach Estates is a magical neighborhood, where breezes are usually constant. You'll enjoy the tropical and fabulous ocean views from the living room, bedroom, kitchen, dining and even from the bathroom, with no other homes in front to obstruct your views.
With nearly perfect weather, the ocean lulls you to sleep at night on occasion, with the sound of rain drops which are most welcome in this area as we are on a catchment system and rely heavily on the rain (it wouldn't be lush without it), offering many variations of wind, a spectacular sunrise and sunset, and so much more from nature.
In its own microclimate, Kehena Kai offers an awesome package and we always look forward to the enjoyment of meeting you and hosting your next stay in East Hawai'i, and also sharing our piece of paradise with you.
Let us immerse you in unconditional hospitality and Aloha.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Purchased in 2012, we returned the home to its longtime purpose as a vacation getaway. We wanted to afford the opportunity to share the home, in this dream location with others. Hawaii has a consistent climate, and the neighborhood boast some of the friendliest and carefree people around. We hope to share our appreciation of Hawaii, the culture, and spirit of aloha with you. Our reviews validate some of the memories and friendships that have been created from previous guests. They checked-in as strangers and checked-out as our new friends.
Let us be your next host during your stay on the East side of Hawaii, and we'll guarantee our finest hospitality.
