  • Great house!

    "We have absolutely nothing bad to say about this house! The house is exactly as described and pictured, and so much more. After spending a week in the Waikoloa area, it was really nice to get away and relax in a private pool and lanai. Liz, the property manager, was great and so welcoming. She even checked in on us a couple times to make sure we were doing okay. This is the house for you if you want comfort, quiet, luxury, and convenient access to the volcanoes and black/green sand beaches. We would definitely go back and highly recommend to all our friends and family!"

  • Shangri-la

    "Very comfortable home in peaceful setting with great views. Plentiful fruit on the trees was a big bonus. The house was very clean and also convenient to explore the south side of the island - must visit the southernmost bakery (a real treat). The hillside setting/views can't be beat. Aaron was very helpful and courteous. The sheep/goats were an added attraction. Great value for the money and would not hesitate to stay again if planning to visit the south side. Even though it rained every evening, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

  • 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."

  • Great vacation, very nice hosts

    "We stayed at the other rental house owned by Barney and Elizabeth. It was just perfect for our party of 4 adults and 3 little kids. The farm is perfect for the kids, they loved the sheep and turkeys, running around in the huge yard and also collecting and cracking open the mac nuts. Even though there is a couple of houses on their property, every one of them is still very private and secluded. Barney and Elizabeth are super nice hosts, always helpful and giving us tips for beaches, restaurants, etc. We had an awesome time, and hopefully will be back soon! Thank you so much for a great vacation!"

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.
