Whale House is located on the most beautiful street on the East side of Hawaii surrounded by million dollar homes. Enjoy stunning ocean views from every room. Feel the ocean spray while whale watching from the huge wraparound lanai. The Whale House is on famous Kaloli Point which boasts the best weather on this side of the island... some say it's better than Kona. This 1400 sq ft house comes with free kayaks, golf clubs, bicycles, Wi-Fi, satellite TV, snorkels, boogie boards, lots of parking, washer, dryer, gas BBQ, dishwasher, and a full sized kitchen with everything needed to prepare a gourmet dinner for six. Plenty of outdoor patio dining.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are full-time Big Island residents. We live one block from the Whale House, so we are available to assist you at a moments notice.

Why the Owner Chose Keaau:
Once we stood on the lanai, felt the ocean spray, and saw whales breach in the orange sunset, we knew this house was a magical place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Kayaks, bicycles, golf clubs, snorkels, coolers, and fruit trees. Whale House is the only rental where free kayaks are provided with instructions to the waterfalls. Kaloli Point is the very best area for bicycles both on a off trails. We also have fruiting coconut palms, papayas, bananas and pineapples on the lush half acre property. Oh, and great weather too!
