Recent Hakalau reviews

  • Relaxing Ocean View

    "Norm and Sheree are wonderful hosts and made me feel like a member of the family. The cottage is exactly as described - compact, very clean, comfortable, properly equipped for a vacation spot. I enjoyed the sound of the rain on the roof. The bamboo lining and exposed beams in the ceiling created a natural look to the cottage. Beautiful sunrises every day. Awesome star gazing. Close to plenty of activities (Umauma Zip Lines, for one and natural wonders (Akaka Falls, for another) - or just lounge on the hanging bed and read and relax. When you do go to Tex Drive Inn in Honokaa, be sure to bring malasadas for Norm and Sheree! They are wonderful people and do everything to ensure a happy stay. PS DO NOT MISS GOING TO MAUNA KEA."

  • Hakalau Haven

    "My entire family came over to Hawaii to celebrate my Son's wedding and Hakalau Haven was the perfect Haven to house all of us. It comfortably fit all 15 of us and even provided a pack and play for our little 1 year old. This will definitely be one of our most memorable family vacation! Starr was very accommodating getting us settled and allowing us a late check out! Thank you for the warm hospitality!"

  • Relaxing retreat

    "My husband, baby & I traveled from Oahu (where we live) to the Big Island to meet up with family from the mainland and New Zealand for a few days. This vacation rental was perfect. It's quiet, clean and has everything you need to make for an enjoyable stay. Starr met us at the rental and was very friendly. The owners were also a pleasure to deal with. I loved that there was a pack and play we could use without having to bring ours with us. Highly recommended!!"

  • Beautiful Home with Ocean View in the relaxed setting of Hakalau

    "For vacationers who look for something more relaxing than the hotel resorts in Kona-Kaliua, this beautiful home in Hakalau on the east side of the Big Island has plenty of natural scenery to offer. Only 15 min drive from Hilo, the next larger town, the house sits off the road on a hill with view of the Ocean. The hosts are an extremely nice couple who take pride in treating their guests well. We were a family of four and enjoyed every second in this beautiful home. It cannot get much better."

Hakalau Travel Tips

Center Yourself with Hakalau Vacation Homes

As if a vacation wasn't relaxing enough, one in Hakalau has the potential to be especially calming. One meaning of this town name is, "To stare at as in meditation and allow to spread out." For those who wish to truly find inner peace while vacationing, you'll find it at Hakalau vacation homes with the aid of local meditation and yoga clinics. One meditative technique tries to combine the active and the passive, much as it is when waves crash against the shore. Many people like to head to the beach from Hakalau lodging, sit on the sand, and focus their thoughts. The white noise of the sea and the calm of the breeze aid help to achieve relaxation.

Fine Tune Your Meditation with a Class

Hakalau vacation homes are a short drive from Hilo, which is home to the Transcendental Meditation Practice. Learn the Kahuna style of meditation under the guidance of those who live that life. Use the Hakalau technique to lose the focus of your eyes and gain the focus of your mind.

Make Your Meditative Practice a Physical One

Big Island vacation rentals make it easy to find inner peace on vacation. These combine the Kahuna style of meditation with an active yoga practice. The Transcendental Meditation Practice also teaches yoga classes along the coast. Combine the meditation skills you have learned with a physical flow. Yoga Centered is another studio in Hilo. It offers a combination of Mysore, Flow and Pilates classes. Either of these studios can help to make your vacation one that gives you more than memories; it can also give you inner peace. Use the convenience of your Hakalau lodging to find yourself on the beach. It will be the most relaxing vacation of your life!
