  • Stunning locaation and views.

    "My husband and I stayed in this beautiful hale for 3 months and enjoyed every moment. It is tastefully furnished, rooms are large, bright and cheerful, with great views from every angle. It is located right on the lava bluffs overlooking the ocean and we never tired of watching the ever-changing weather and ocean patterns, seeing many, many whales, pods of dolphins and lots of turtles. There is a lovely garden on the non-ocean side of the house with bananas, breadfruit, coconuts and other mystery fruit. There is a small plot where you can "do your own thing" if you happen to stay long enough to watch it come to fruition. What we liked most was the peace and quiet, hearing only the occasional coqui frog at night and doves in the early morning. A great place to spend hours reading, sitting in the sun, or having an occasional social gathering. Of course, there are many, many things to do nearby on the island if you choose but always a delightful, calming place to return to at the end of the day."

  • Lovely spot and lovely house

    "The windows let in the sunrise; the ocean surf beats against the rocks. Enjoy a warm beverage and watch and listen. It is gorgeous. I stayed here for two weeks, working remotely on mostly good Internet some days and enjoying the area on the other. How great to sit at that kitchen table working on my laptop with a cup of tea and fresh Hawaiian breezes rolling in. Hard to imagine a nicer spot! Well equipped kitchen, clean and inviting house, orchids growing all around. A perfect place to enjoy HPP."

  • Beautiful house and grounds, very well-stocked

    "My family (husband and 6 yo daughter) and friends (couple w/o kids) spent a week in this very comfortable home. It was a fabulous vacation with active and restful times. You can have this place as both launching pad and retreat. The space was great both inside and out, with lots of amenities. The house was well-stocked with everything for day outings (snorkeling equipment, beach chairs & umbrellas, coolers, etc) and had lots of supplies like spices, condiments, shampoo, and sunscreen presumably left from other guests. We added to the stock since we purchased all at the grocery store before yourself and check out what is there before you buy more. The only drawbacks we encountered--that had nothing to do with the house--were the location and weather on that side of the island. We did not know that the "wet side of the island" means WET. There was more than the quick daily shower that we'd encountered on other tropical vacations. We definitely had some nice, sunny times and the pool/hot tub/cliffs are a great place to enjoy that. But there was a lot of rain while we were there. To get to the classic sandy beaches involved quite a drive in most any direction. However, the location is convenient for some areas like visiting the volcano. Just set your expectations for some rain and you should have a great time as well. I also want to note how great the property manager and owner were with a minor repair that was needed on the day of our arrival. It turned out not to be necessary, but they were prepared to put us up in the nicest hotel in Hilo or another rental house on the same street. We ended up getting into the house just a few hours later than planned and everything was absolutely taken care of. Overall, I would highly recommend this house if you are headed to the Hilo area!"

  • Most Amazing Place Evar!

    "I should have written this review when we first got home, but got so busy and I wanted to put much thought into the review. We were really hesitant to rent this now that the main house is occupied. But, this turned out to be the best place we've ever stayed! The price is incredible! You won't find a better price. It was close to the ocean for me to go fishing. We are used to staying at homes near the ocean with a pool that cost a lot of money. This has the most amazing pool we've seen, right near the ocean and dirt cheap! The owners are some of the greatest people I've met. The accommodations, I was worried would be too small. But there was more than enough room, and the ohana was more thought out than any place we've stayed. Quiet location. You cannot find any place better than this. Not only did we have an incredible time just hanging out here, but we've found fabulous friends in Kim and Toni! Malama pono and peace!"

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.
