  • A Labor of Love

    "Our trip was amazing and the property exceeded our expectations! The owner greeted us with beautiful flowers and a true kindness. We thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous and fastidiously clean house, grounds and pool! The geckos greeted us as we ate papaya on the deck. The frogs were a beautiful lullaby to put us to sleep on this manicured historical site. A true labor of love by the owners! Mahalo for the extraordinary memory!"

  • True Hawaii Experience

    "If you are ready to get away from the crowds and experience the real Hawaii, this is the place for you. Set in the middle of 3 acres of rainforest, the only sounds you hear are the birds, frogs, and the occasional car. Barbara and Michael love their property and it shows in the care of construction, furnishings, and the way the landscaping blends with the natural surroundings. The cottage was very clean and fully furnished with all of the necessities. The hosts are welcoming and dedicated to helping you enjoy your stay at their bit of paradise."

  • Paradise Found

    "Our stay at Hale O Makani couldn't have been more perfect. The home was spacious, clean, comfortable and had all of the amenities we needed during our time there. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the private patio area just outside the master bedroom, and picking yummy avocados from a tree in the beautifully landscaped backyard. The convenient location was also a plus, close to Pahoa, an easy drive to Hilo and everything a vacationer would want to see and experience while visiting the Big Island's east side. Combine all of the above with the best management team anywhere...what's not to love?"

  • AMAZING - Super cute and the perfect location to explore the Big Island

    "There is so much good I could say about this place and Laura's hospitality that you'd get sick of reading it. SO here is the gist of it... My husband and I rented a 4WD jeep (which is the perfect way to save money and explore the big island). We logged aprx 100-300 miles per day depending on how adventurous we wanted to be, but it was NEVER a boring drive. Now you don't have to travel far from the Dolphin Hideaway to have a good time, but we figured out it is in the perfect location on the island to travel from. The Volcanoes, black sand beaches, surfing lessons, tide pools, snorkeling areas, amazing waterfalls, coffee farms, the 2 mountains (Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea), farmers markets, etc are all within 20min to an hour or so. Amazing! Or you can just relax at the studio or take a mile hike/drive to the cliffs to watch the sunrise and dolphins. And the studio is great - very clean - very cute - great touring information provided - movies - books available for free use - TV if you really need - good Wi-fi - peaceful and quiet - decently comfortable bed - no A/c but opening the windows at night did us just fine - rain water feeds the studio ( which is normal in the area and awesome!) and don't worry it gets PLENTY hot if need be. Bring your own water bottles though for drinking purposes. Laura is great! She was superbly hospitable. She greeted us with a smile and had great equipment for us to use (Snorkeling gear, boogie boards, etc) and one day she gave us some homemade pesto which was awesome. She has chickens and also gave us a dozen eggs! Her place is filled with home grown vegetation and beauty. Super thankful for this place as it saved us a lot of money from staying at a resort or some sketchy cheap hotel. We were able to use the money to create the adventure we always wanted! We hope to be back one day. Thank you Laura!"

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.
