This cottage is one of three on the estate. Please check out our comment book!!!
We keep a book in the house to capture customers comments that are made about our place and how we can improve our accommodations. It is FULL of messages just like this!

1) Susan And Andre...We had a wonderful time here! The patio overlooks the ocean and we saw whales jumping and crashing right in front of us! The cottage is located on the beautifully lush Red Road and is very convenient to the cool town of Pahoa and also a short drive to Hilo. There is an awesome black sand beach directly across from the cottage and a farmers market at the end of the road (west end I believe) that was one of my favorite activities. Local vendors, music, food, dancing - farmers market was definitely a highlight. We would absolutely stay here again.

2) Thank You so much, the past 3 nights in the cottage have been FANTASTIC! I realy look forward to coming back to visit.

3) Very nice cottage! We really enjoyed! Two thumbs up! We will recommend this place for sure!
The Whale House is located in one of the most beautiful places on earth - Kehena Beach, on The Big Island of Hawaii.

Our spacious cottage is one of the closest cottages to Kehena Beach on Kalapana-Kapoho Rd (aka) State HWY 137.. Our cottage also has a washer & dryer, FREE Super fast WI-FI internet, land line w/ free long distance, Direct TV, flat screen TV, 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 Whale House 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.
