  • Naupaka Guest House

    "The house was wonderful. The owners lived next door and brought us avocados and lemons from their trees. The area was very quiet. If you are looking for a quiet peaceful getaway go here! Every thing was clean and lush. I would recommend for any team activity in Hilo or Keaau."

    "Beautiful home and layout.I would most definitely stay there again.i love the Coqui frogs at night although I never did find any. With the sliding doors open in the early evening the breeze is better than an air conditioner."

  • THE OCEAN VIEW CANNOT BE DESCRIBED

    "My wife and I stayed at Sea Watch in June of 2014. This wonderful house is literally right on the ocean. We were about 40 feet from the water setting 30 feet about the pounding surf and could feel the salt spray at times. The house was very spacious and had every amenity you would ever need. Sam was right next door to answer any questions and concerns I we had any. The great thing about renting a place like this instead of staying in a hotel room is the many extras you have in the form of maps and books about the island and all of its many treasures. I would recommend this as a perfect place to get away and relax and let the ocean lull you to sleep."

  • Just what we were looking for in a vacation home!

    "Spectacular views of the ocean and cliffs from practically every room. Couldn't believe that we were right on the lava cliffs at the ocean's edge. Great location for a base of operations to set out to see beaches, volcanoes, and waterfalls. Although this is the big island, everything is reasonably close. Visiting from the Houston TX area, it really felt like all of the activities were right next door. Grocery stores and restaurants were nearby - about 10 minutes to Pahoa for the small town experience and maybe 20 minutes to Hilo if you want to hit the "big" city. Home is spacious, yet cozy. Pictures don't do it justice. Kitchen is well laid out and has the basic equipment needed to pull together anything from a quick breakfast to a full dinner - provided you've gone shopping, of course! We also made use of the BBQ grill to grill steaks on the 4th of July. Insects and critters were no problem at all. We didn't see a single one in the house the whole time we were there. All in all, we had a wonderful, relaxing time here. Mahalo & Aloha!"

Keaau Travel Tips

Volcano Heat and Cool Ocean Waves Meet at Keaau Vacation Rentals

When you stay at Keaau vacation rentals, you're minutes away from one of the largest lava flows in the world. The presence of the volcano has shaped much of the Puna District's distinct landscape from the 20-foot lava cliffs towering out of the water to the black beeches dotting the coast. The heat warms pockets of water throughout the area, forming warm water pools where you can soak and relax. If you feel like learning more about the volcano, head to nearby Volcano National Park.

Nature Entertains You When You Stay at Keaau Vacation Houses

Hawaii has a variety of wildlife both on land and in the ocean, but many people especially enjoy watching the aquatic animals from the lanais, courtyards, or balconies of Keaau vacation houses. In the winter months, humpback whales enjoy the waters around the Big Island. Let their nocturnal songs lull you to sleep. During the day, watch for whales to blow water from their blowholes. The waters also attract dolphins. The animals give birth and play with their young at destinations all around the island. From the comfort of your oceanfront vacation rental in Keaau, you can also catch views of sea turtles enjoying a swim.

Tropical Gardens and Tide Pools Surround Puna District Beach Rentals

Tropical gardens filled with tree ferns, fruit trees, and flowers encompass the areas around Puna District beach rentals. Walk or drive down mango-lined roads, head into Hilo for the farmer's market where you can get fresh fruit from local growers, or breathe in the mixed blend of passion flowers and orchids. From your beach rental in Keaau, you can visit one of the nearby tide pools. The ones at Kapoho and Champagne Pools are good locations for snorkeling and swimming.
