Property description

The only way to stay closer to the ocean would to be in a boat. Sit back and watch the cruise ships slowly pass by knowing that the passengers aboard are truly envying your luxurious accommodations. This elegant and spacious home offers a nearly 180 degree of the mighty Pacific ocean where you can relax and watch whales as they suddenly breach the blue water, spinner dolphins playfully chase a passing fishing vessel and the rising sun at it welcomes you to an amazing array of morning colors.

Walk through the front door into a vaulted great room with expansive windows looking out to the ocean and all that it has to offer. Hardwood floors, granite kitchen counters, two separate bedroom/bath suites each with its own lanai from which to enjoy the sunrise, the starts and the cool breezes from the ocean. The spacious oceanfront lanai of the house also has an outdoor sink/bar for outdoor entertaining. The home is furnished with high quality furniture that has been handcrafted using several different types of Hawaiian hardwood, lots of beautiful artwork and comfortable furniture. The only thing you will hate about this house is leaving!
This spectacular home features two spacious bedrooms, the Hamakua and the Hilo, each boasting its own private bath. The bathroom of the Hamakua room features an extra large, luxurious Jacuzzi tub with full glass windows offering a wide open ocean view. In addition, a separate door off of the Hamakua bath leads you onto a nice wooden lanai and a fabulous, outdoor shower. This shower is covered by wood and vines on three sides yet open on the ocean side.

We hope that you have had the opportunity to view the great video of this property. Please note that the video depicts both the Pali Lani Seaside Lodge as well as the adjacent The Loft at Pali Lani Vacation Rental.

Need space for additional guests? On the same tropical, nearly 2 acre paradise we offer the quaint, second story, The Loft at Pali Lani vacation rental. This property can be viewed on VRBO listing number 640275 (www.vrbo.com/640275) and can also be seen on the video of this property. These two amazing properties can be reserved together at a discounted rate and will sleep a total of 10 guests together. To reserve both properties together, please add $100/nightly to the appropriate seasonal rate, which is for four guests. If you only need the main Pali Lani house but wish to have total privacy during your stay, you can block the rentals of the neighboring Loft for an additional $60/night. This will ensure you have the entire Pali Lani estate to yourself.
While both rentals are located on the same property, there is ample space between the two so that privacy is not an issue. The Loft at Pali Lani is a cozy, two bedroom, one bath structure featuring a fabulous upper deck and full kitchen as well. The two rentals share the same covered parking area but have separate entrances.

Hilo is known for its warm aloha spirit, relaxed lifestyle, unique shops, art galleries and restaurants with local regional cuisine. Local attractions include Lyman Museum, East Hawaii Cultural Center, historic Palace Theatre, Pacific Tsunami Museum, Imiloa Astronomy Center, UH Hilo Performing Arts Center and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens. Hilo Farmer's Market is a favorite for fresh, local produce. Merrie Monarch Festival, Hilo's premier hula competition and cultural event, is held annually. Hilo's black sand beaches and freshwater pools are some of the best for snorkeling, diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming with turtles and tropical fish, or watching the whales off shore. Take a helicopter volcano tour or short scenic drive to active Kilauea volcano to view a lava flow, ride horses in Waipio Valley or tour the summit and view the night skies of Mauna Kea.

We are near Highway 19, only 15 minutes to the town of Hilo, 20 minutes to the Hilo Airport and an approximate 2 hour drive to Kona. This is a great central location to tour and see the incredible experiences the Island of Hawaii has to offer.
We also own another property, Old Sugar Mill Plantation, which is only 4 miles away. It is a great, ocean view home and can accommodate up to 16 persons. Click on 'See our other listings' on this website or you can cut and paste the below into your browser.

What a perfect location for a Hawaii vacation. The home is located in the quaint town of Hakalua; a short 15 minute drive north up the scenic highway from Hilo. This allows you to be close enough for the comforts of shopping and dining while providing incredible privacy and the true Hawaiian experience at the same time.

Fabulous short day trips make the location ideal for the traveler desiring to see everything the Big Island has to offer. Akaka Falls State Park is only a 10-minute drive from the home. The beauty of Nani Mau Gardens on the edge of Hilo is a short 20 minute drive. Picturesque Waipio Rim Valley is only a short 45 minute drive away up the scenic Hamakua Coast. Great hikes and sightseeing await you at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park which is also approximately 45 minutes away.

The home is a short 20 minute drive from the Hilo airport and approximately 1 1/2 hours from the Kona airport.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I am truly blessed to be not only a resident of the Big Island but to have the opportunity to manage such an incredible home for my dear friends. Helen and John, the owners, share my compassion in ensuring our guests feel the true spirit of Aloha while staying at The Loft at Pali Lani or the Pali Lani Seaside Lodge. So that our incoming guests know, in Hawai'i, we like to hug a lot! So if you reach out to shake a hand here, don't be surprised if they give you a hug in return. While you are here, you are family! It's the Hawaiian way of life.

Why Hakalau:
We sat on the lanai, saw an amazing humpback whale explosively breach the blue water right before our eyes and we were hooked!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home sits on the most beautiful and tranquil property you will find. As you approach the home, beautiful, wrought gates slowly open inviting you to your own tropical paradise. Surrounded by vacant land on all sides, you will hear nothing but the sound of the ocean. In season, maybe even a few whales singing to each other.
