  • Peaceful retreat amidst lush tropical greenery

    "I stayed at this property for a week for a bit of rest, reading and quiet contemplation, and it was perfect. The ocean-front is a pleasant 15 min walk along Beach Road and is a great place both at sunrise and at dusk. The cloudless skies and the waning phase of the moon made for spectacular star gazing. The property is roomy and bright, with lush green foliage all around. Unlike many other properties nearby, this house was built with much of the surrounding native vegetation preserved and augmented with tropical plants. The furnishings and amenities were simple, but quite functional ; there was a generous supply of towels, sheets, etc. Internet worked quite well. The location is convenient to drive to Volcanoes national park, Hilo town and the Hawaii tropical Botanical Garden (a must see for nature lovers!). The only drawback is that on hot days, the interior of the house becomes unbearably hot (partly due to the greenhouse effect of the big windows), but it was cooler out on the lanai. Fortunately, it cools down rather quickly after sunset. I'd love to return for a stay during the winter."

  • 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."

  • Excellent Stay

    "We were very satisfied with our stay at the house. It has everything that is needed to make your stay comfortable. Very clean and organized with two floors for enjoying the ocean and sunrise views. Absolutely no regrets and would stay here again. If you're a newlywed the cliff/ocean views would make a great backdrop for some photos settings. Only suggestion is to provide some reclining chairs for guests that might want to basque in the sun while laying near the cliffs and breaking waves. thanks for a great stay Jena."

    "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."

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.
