We also have access to professional masseuse with in-home massages, and much more.

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.

                  Owner info

                  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.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kehena:
                  This property seems to have chosen us as opposed to the other way around. It is in a prime location, in a small beach community, across the street from the ocean, with all the pleasures of a paradise dream, and access to a black sand beach (clothing optional). Kehena Kai is the closest, private, non-shared, vacation rental to the famous Kehena black sand Beach (No other homes or guests on the property :) Kehena Kai is an eclectic, cozy, exotic vacation rental offering a rare opportunity to be only steps away from Kehena Black sand beach. The home also offers all the amenities that you need to relax and vacate. We are within a short driving distance to view the active volcano, lava flow, as well as the Kapoho hot ponds, lava tubes, Alahalanui State Park, and much more. There is a convenience store at the end of the road, as well as semi 'fast food' restaurant, and also Uncle Robert's Awa Bar, which features local entertainment and farmer's market on Wednesday nights 5pm-9pm and Friday nights after 6pm.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Imported from Bali, this home offers the kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, and master bedroom on four different levels-all with ocean views. In lieu of an air conditioning system, the bathroom, kitchen, living room and bedroom all have ceiling fans. Most of the structure and its beams are made of teak wood and the roofs of the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, boasts authentic Balinese roofs with ironwood shingles. The stone work in the interior and exterior are imported. We fell in love with this home because of its proximity to the ocean, its Balinese charm, and the peace and serenity you feel once you step through the door. Every aspect of this home screams charm, and we are sure you will feel the same during your stay at Kehena Kai.
