Private 3 BR Oceanfront Home on Puna Coast. Central Location. See the Whales!!
Hale Kai means Ocean House, and it's not hard to see how this lovely home got its name. It is perched at the edge of the Pacific Ocean in the centrally located Hawaiian Paradise Park community.
When you arrive at the home, you will enter to a wall-to-wall ocean view. The front of the house combines the living room, dining room and kitchen in a convenient and inviting open floor plan that is common here in the islands.
Vaulted ceilings, ceiling fan and floor-to-ceiling windows provide excellent flow and really maximize the space and the view. The kitchen is equipped with new appliances and everything you need to prepare and serve meals. The dining / living area overlooks the ocean, and offers lots of seating and a flat screen TV with cable and hi speed internet. We bet you will have a hard time tearing your eyes away from the ocean though – with frequent visits from dolphins and turtles. This part of the coast is very popular with the migrating humpbacks as well.
A hallway leads to the back of the house where the bedrooms are located. The master bedroom offers a queen bed and a full en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom offers another comfortable queen bed, and the third bedroom has twin beds. You'll also find a second full bathroom, a laundry room, and a den with a desk and a fantastic ocean view - for those who must work while they visit it doesn't get much better!
Step outside through the sliding glass doors and enjoy the welcoming shady lanai that envelops the house. There are plenty of lounge chairs to sit back and enjoy the show only nature can put on. An outdoor dining table overlooks the ocean and provides a second dining area. No better spot to sink into some freshly grilled fish, local fruits and veggies, or a tropical cocktail!
Head down into the yard and stroll along to the ocean's edge where you'll find rock gardens, hear and feel the spray of the thundering ocean waves, and enjoy the ever-changing view of the vast Pacific Ocean.
Hale Kai is located in the Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood - also known as HPP or The Park - and is conveniently located between Hilo and Kapoho – it's just 20 minutes to either of these popular areas.
From Hale Kai there is an ocean front park half mile down on Beach Road. Also at the other end of the neighborhood - Kaloli Point - there is a 2-mile trail that leads through the jungle and out to Ha'ena (Shipman) Beach, the only place on this part of the coast with swimming access. There is a grocery store, couple of cafes, and a gas station just a few minutes from the house in Orchidland.
The town of Pahoa is only 10 minutes away with cute shops, restaurants and healthy cafes. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park as well as Mauna Kea observatory are about a 45-minute drive from the house. We welcome you to Hale Kai.

We loved your home! The view was breathtaking, and the home was very comfortable, quiet. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you for making it so comfortable, we hope to be back one day.
Beautiful location. Well presented and clean, with everything we needed.
Restful home with a stunning view out over the ocean, and we were excited to spot dolphins one day. Handy to Hilo and Volcano. The owners have prepared a great guide to the area, which we found useful. We enjoyed our stay at Hale Kai and felt very lucky to have landed there.
Quiet retreat with an amazing view!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay. We watched the sunrise each morning sitting on the lanai. We were treated to spinner dolphins the first morning!
Loved waking to bird song and the sound of surf.
The drive into Hilo took 30-40 minutes depending on traffic (try to avoid rush hour if you are here during the week). The house was clean, well maintained and stocked with everything we needed for our stay. (We shopped for groceries at the KTA in Hilo).
Multiple fans and large screened windows kept us cool.
There were just two of us, but the house would comfortably accommodate 6.
We have always loved Hilo, still do even more, and hope to return soon.
The property was wonderful! Ocean views, smells and sounds at the door step. As advertised, the neighborhood is very quiet so while there are neighbors you won't know it. Home was clean and well maintained. The 'beach supplies' (towels, chairs, etc) were wonderful to have on hand.
Amazing ocean view!
They were not kidding when they said this home was oceanfront. The crashing of the waves was an incredible sight. The weather was stormy during our stay, so we did not see any whales or dolphins, and we did not get to enjoy the lanai due to the wind and ocean spray. Oh, but falling asleep to the sound of the waves was therapeutic.
Upon arrival the home was clean and new living room furniture had arrived earlier in the day. The home was comfortable for six adults. Our only suggestion would be to increase the kitchen utensils and pots & pans, especially a big pot and more spatulas. There was no rice cooker, but when I called the office someone brought us a new one from Longs that evening.
The home was about a 20-25 minute drive from Hilo depending on traffic. Closer towns were Pahoa and Keaau, which had grocery stores. Suggest shopping at Foodland in Keaau. About a 40 minute drive to Volcano and over an hour drive to Tex's Drive Inn for yummy malasadas.
If you don't mind driving or want to stay in a more secluded area, this home is a good place to stay.
Amazing ocean front view! Beautiful house!
We absolutely loved it. Such a gorgeous view and the house is just as special. So incredibly clean, open and bright. The neighborhood is wonderful, and the road the house is on is perfect for walking each morning. Everyone's so friendly and it was just the best stay! The property management was exceptional in communication and we overall had a wonderful experience!
The only thing we would suggest is more comfortable living room furniture. The couch and chairs were really hard/firm - if that were replaced, it would be perfect!
Gary's group were very good guests and we'd rent to them again anytime ! Mahalo nui for your feedback and review.
Hawaiian Paradise Park, also known as HPP or The Park, is a centrally located residential neighborhood half way between Hilo and Kapoho. Though it’s still largely undeveloped, Hawaiian Paradise Park is the second largest housing subdivision in the country with almost 8800 one acre lots (the largest, Hawaiian Ocean View Estates, is also here on the Big Island). The neighborhood is so large that it has numerous distinct climate zones! There is an ocean front park at the end of Maku’u Drive, where you can ocean gaze and whale watch. On the other end of the neighborhood at Kaloli Point, a 2 mile trail leads through the jungle and out to Ha'ena (Shipman) Beach, the only place on this part of the coast with swimming access. Pahoa Village is 10 minutes away. You can reach either Hilo or Kapoho in about 20 minutes. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a 45 minute drive.
