ALOHA Welcome to the “Menehune Mansion” Our stunning 360 degree view awaits you in the peaceful small town of Ocean View, where we are known to grow the world’s best coffee. Our 800 foot elevation keeps it just the right temperature day and night. Panoramic views of the coast highlighting the beach and pond just 2 miles below, where you can watch the whales while in season and the swaying palm trees. The one bedroom house features a queen sized bed, large closets and reading lamps for two. Living room has a double Lazy-Boy recliner for watching the wide selection of DVD's, Netflix, or hooking into the internet with your computer on the 42' flat screen TV. Telescope for whale watching, and reading nook. The kitchen is supplied with new pots, pans, awesome blender, toaster, coffee maker, stove, oven, dishwasher, and full sized fridge. Bathroom has a full shower with towels for home and the beach. Cooler, Boogie board and Chairs are also provided. Sunrises get your day off to a great start of adventures or relaxation. Hiking to an almost private beach on the historic king’s trail, or swimming with the turtles at a close by black sand beach, maybe a kayak with the dolphins and fish at “Two-step” or Hookena, These are two of our favorite beaches. Returning in time for a nice cocktail and BBQ while watching the sunset over the horizon, sitting in the swing under the lilikoi bush with a good book, playing a game of pool and watching the sun go down and the moon take its place. This is the place to get away from it all. “Big Sky Country” a place for soaking in the quiet while watching the star filled sky, unobstructed from city lights and sounds……….just nature. Yet you are only 3 miles from a great little town of Ocean View with all the amenities, grocery’s, gas (cheapest on the island besides Costco), restaurants and a festive Saturday market. There you can stock up on fresh honey, fruits, veggies, Kau coffee along with a locally made souvenirs for you or your friends and meet the 'locals' of the town. This is a great destination being in the middle of the Island, 45 miles from Kona and 65 miles from Hilo. From here is where you want to explore South Point and the “Green Sand beach”, Naalehu and it’s famous bakery, Punaluu and the turtle swarmed “Black Sand beach”. Volcano National Park with the ever changing lava and Thurstons lava tube. Or stay local and visit the Kula Kai Caverns for some Spelunking, and the magnificent white sand beach of Pohue Bay. Whatever you chose to do this a tranquil place where relaxation and adventure meet. Kona and Hilo are accessible for the partier. And a library of books, DVDs and games are here for the lighter vacationer. Please come and enjoy. MAHALO!!

although we are remote, there is so much to do here. One of our favorite things to do is shop at the Ocean View swap meet every Saturday morning. We get local fresh fruit, coffee, honey, Thai food, and souvenirs and a nice chiropractic adjustment. After that try out the spelunking at the Kula Kai Caverns, drive to the Volcano National Park to see the earths molten core and walk threw an ancient lava tube. Or hike to a VERY secluded white sand beach down the kings trail while keeping an eye out for goats and petroglyphs. The land is a bit rough and rocky so it may be hard on the fragile.

About the owner: Aloha I love to travel with my partner Lara. When we were visiting the island of Hawaii we fell in love with the diversity of the people and the land. Hawaii is a living creature growing bigger everyday. Amazing. However California summers also have a strong pull on us and we spend them traveling in our Toyota RV to music festivals. we'll return to Hawaii once California cools down. Please come and enjoy our place while we our enjoying others. Mahalo
Why the Owner Chose Ocean View: these 3 acres are so quite and peaceful. At night there are no city lights to obstruct your star gazing. And no traffic. The place is great for getting away to unwind.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The best thing we found when we walked in were the big windows though out the house to see all the beauty that surrounds you, great sunrises and sunsets, full moons, cloud formations and almost everyday there is at least one rainbow. When in season you see the humpbacks frolicking in the waters below, With or without the telescope.
Perfect temps all the time. I must say I love wearing shorts and flip flops in the winter.
