    "We were safe, comfortable and happy! Our stay was filled with memories for a lifetime. If you are into country living and want to get away from it all, we highly recommend this property. The owners and the care taker Shirley were wonderful people."

  • Enjoyable stay

    "We enjoyed 1 week here celebrating our 10th anniversary. The condo is well laid out and has everything you need. The place in general is very comfortable especially the bed and has a wonderful view of the golf course and ocean. We found the location to be ideal for hiking in Volcano park (30 min away) and visiting Hilo (1hr away ). Kona was a bit farther (2hr with traffic). There are lots of places to explore nearby too including the Punalu'u black sands beach where you are guaranteed to see sea turtles resting on the beach! Our only complaint would be that it is not a soundproof place and of course everyone's windows are open all the time so during waking hours you hear your neighbours a lot --TV , doing dishes , chairs moving and often conversations. This is so something we are not used too but it never occurred at night so was tolerable. Overall a great place to stay to explore the Big Island."

  • Spacious house in a quiet area

    "This house is in a little neighborhood about 40 minutes from the National Park. There is so much room that, while we had 3, we were thinking we could have added another family and been comfortable. There are a number of activities within minutes (South Point, coffee mill, lava tube, etc.) If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, this is it."

  • Perfect for us

    "We felt this was exactly what we saw in the pictures inside and out. Loved the sunrises from the lanai, and was a good home away from home to kick off and unwind before and after our many hiking and snorkeling adventures up both the east and west side of the island. We are a family of four and it gave us some space to spread out and fun places to hang together."

Naalehu Travel Tips

Naalehu Vacation Homes Put You Next to Beauty and Danger

For those who travel to The Big Island, volcanoes are part and parcel with the entire experience. Naalehu, the southernmost city in the United States, means "volcanic ash" and the surrounding locale does not fail to deliver on that promise. Vacationing in a Naalehu lodging means seeing hot lava flow into the ocean and hiking in the lush scenery made possible by the nutrient rich volcanic soil. Big Island vacation rentals are the best bet for surrounding yourself with the rich beauty of a tropical paradise.

Spelunk in Empty Lava Tubes while Vacationing in Naalehu

Lava tubes abound on The Big Island of Hawaii. For those who don't know, lava tubes are large chambers that carry lava to the surface. If they are dormant they can be explored. Many people believe the first Polynesians to come to Hawaii lived in the lava tubes around Naalehu. The Kula Kai caverns, within ten miles of Naalehu vacation homes, are open to both casual tourists and experienced spelunkers. A word of warning to potential cave explorers: the caves are within a gated community but a quick call ahead will get you the gate code and access to the area. Once inside, check in at the office, acquire some gear, and start caving!

Photograph the Glory of an Active Volcano

Naalehu lodging also puts you within a short drive of witnessing the beauty and sheer force of nature; the Lava Viewing area of Pahoa allows tourists to see hot lava flow directly into the ocean. Leave your Naalehu vacation home and take a short hour drive up the gorgeous coast. It is recommended to get there an hour before sundown to best appreciate the beauty of this unique experience. Bring your camera and capture the beauty forever.
