The Kehena Beach Cottage is located in one of the most beautiful places on earth - Kehena Beach, on The Big Island of Hawaii.
Our spacious cottage is the closest cottage to Kehena Beach on Kalapana-Kapoho Rd (aka) State HWY 137.. Our cottage has 1 bedroom w/ queen bed & full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen (Gumamela Cottage), beautiful lanai, washer & dryer, FREE Super fast WI-FI internet, land line w/ free long distance, Direct TV, flat screen TV, CD , blender, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator/freezer, wood/tile floors, outdoor rock BBQ and typical household amenities that give you the feeling that 'you are at home'. The Hawaiian rock barbecue is situated in our tropical garden w/ ocean view. It doesn't get much better than this.
It also has an ocean view from every room in the house, including the bathroom.
If you are interested in Yoga, we are situated in between two world famous Yoga Centers located here on 'The Red Road'.
Many people come to Hawaii to visit Volcano National Park - home of Kilauea and the periodic lava flows just a short distance from us. There are also Hawaiian jungles, tropical rain forests, beautiful coastal views, geothermically heated ponds, snorkeling, whale watching w/ dolphins that migrate to the warm Hawaiian waters from Alaska. You can often see them from our lanai off our beautiful coast - in the Kehena Beach area. Many of my tenants have told us that they were able to swim w/ the dolphins and you can too!
This is the place for water lovers - you should see the spectacular ocean view & sunrise over the south pacific from our lanai - where you may want to eat your breakfast!!
Also, did you know that the best and safest snorkeling area is just down the road in the Kapoho Tide pools? You can easily navigate all of these places from the cottage in Kehena Beach, it has come to be a very popular spot 'right in the center of all of these attractions'.
For those of you who are seeking night time entertainment, check out 'Uncles Outdoor Hawaii Bar' if you want to sip a beer, listen to live Hawaiian music, eat great food and enjoy a farmers market at the same time.
The Gumamela Cottage is located in beautiful Kehena Beach - across the street from the Kehena Beach view point - on the Hilo side of the Big Island of Hawaii.
It is also just a short walk across the street from the world famous Kehena Black Sand Beach.
Pohoiki Point and the famous Kapoho snorkeling waters are also near by and remain popular snorkeling, surfing and swimming areas. Compare our rates to those in Kapoho - you will love our place.
Kilauea Volcano is just a 45-60 minute drive where you can walk through Thurstons Lava Tube and look in to Kilauea Caldera.
You are also close to the lava viewing area, tide pools, snorkeling, fishing areas, Akaka, Kahuna and Rainbow Falls, Boiling Pots, hiking, Farmers Market (1/2 block away), Space Community Arts Center, Keck Observatory, Kilauea , Uncles Bamboo Tiki Bar w/ live music, cafes, food markets, Volcanoes Nat'l Park and so much more - are just 10-45 minutes away.
My mission is to make sure that you have what you need to make your visit a happy, and memorable experience ! This is also a great place to relax and enjoy nature. Many people come to Kehena Beach to 'get away from it all and breath clean air, eat great food, soak up the sunshine, exercise, commune with nature, and meet some wonderful people. So come and find out 'what the aloha spirit really is'. We invite you to come Hawaii..it truly is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
You will love this place - picture yourself sitting on the lanai w/ the sound of waves crashing on the cliffs below while gazing at the South Pacific through ocean front coconut trees that are swaying w/ the Hawaiian trade winds. This is truly the Hawaii that you dream about. Call Andre to inquire. (View from this cottage is shown in our pictures)
NOTE: We also have a special provision for weddings. Pastor Thomas Monago is our wedding officiant who will perform your wedding at the beach or local park.
This is also the perfect 'honeymoon suite' where you can actually sit on your lanai and see whales and dolphins off shore...along with the boats and cruise ships that cruise by.

I stayed here for 5 nights; I was in Honolulu for 5 days prior to my stay here, and this oceanfront cottage was definitely more of what I envisioned my relaxing Hawaiian vacation to be like. Peaceful setting, beautiful views, being able to get away from it all while at the same time being able to visit the nearby attractions within a reasonable drive? What more can you ask for. AND you have all the amenities you need, so your stay is comfortable and you feel like you're at your home away from home. The bed was comfy, the shower water noticeably cleaner and refreshing, and the cottage well ventilated (can't forget to mention totally cute). I enjoyed every minute of my stay here, even in the littlest things like eating breakfast on the lanai, while watching the waves and the sunrise. I would definitely stay here again and looking forward to my next trip to Hawaii already!

My Fiancee and I stayed in the sunshine cottage for 4 nights and 5 days. It was just beautiful. our view of the ocean was perfect, we were out on the lanai every morning, afternoon, and evening. On our first morning we took the trail down to the Black Sand Beach, it was our first time in Hawaii and to see the black sand beach RIGHT ACROSS from our cottage was amazing. On Wednesday nights there's a farmer's market where the whole community gets together, there's live music, GREAT homecooked food,and souvenirs that locals make. At night, on a clear night you can see all the billions of stars in the sky. If you love nature, you'll love the coqui frogs at night, the cool ocean breeze and the sound of the coconut leaves. As far as the cottage goes, it has a full size fridge where you can store your groceries, coffee maker, hot plate to cook on, microwave, toaster oven. comfortable bed and couches. flat screen HD tv, CABLE, WIFI, filtered water (very important in tropical weather) no AC NO PROBLEM the ocean breeze will keep the cottage cool and comfortable. When we go back to Hawai'i we will most definitely stay here again. THANK YOU SUSAN AND ANDRE!!

This cottage was just perfect! Oceanview with the beach directly across the street. The cottage was very clean and tastefully decorated. We told the owner we had 2 teenagers that didn't want to share the fold down couch. He had an extra futon mattress ready for us to use. My husband and I loved our time together on the patio listening to the crashing of waves. We loved this place!
