Kailea means "sea of dreams". It is a brand newly constructed property located in sunny Kaloli Point. It is a spacious ocean front lot with added sense of considerable sense of privacy as it is adjacent to thousands of acres of undeveloped Shipman property, who have generously opened their pristine landscape for public access. If you feel energetic, you can even hike along the scenic coast, or the tropical rain forest to the gorgeous Ha'ena Beach. Feel the spray of the ocean and if you are lucky, witness the humpback whales breaching or singing close by during season. Here, you will find an unobstructed view of both open ocean as well as distant shoreline. Treat yourself to a beautiful sunrise and quite often, a romantic moon rise on the horizon. For you bird watchers, you may see a variety of rare specimens such as the io (hawk) or the pueo (owl) along with the more common frigates and nene (Hawaiian geese) flying overhead. There is much to do here and we will provide the use of water sport gear, beach chairs and towels, bicycles, caving gear, and many more. Kailea is close to many attractions on the east side of the island. We reside close by and will be able happy to serve your needs and answer your questions promptly. E komo mai!

About Maria Akagi
I am a professional tutor in the ELL dept of the Dept. of Education. My husband is a licensed counselor and retired police officer. We have combined our public service backgrounds, artistic background, and recreational mind set to provide a beautiful/ comfortable setting to fulfill everyone's expectation of a dream Hawaiian vacation. I think I have a bit of OCD, which is to your benefit. You can expect a spotless vacation rental upon your arrival!
Maria Akagi purchased this House in 2017
Why Maria Akagi chose Keaau
We used to walk our dog along this coast and vacant property almost daily and longingly wished we could some day own such a property. Well, that day has arrived, and we would like to share our amazing property with you. You can be interactive with the breathtaking coastline and take in the panoramic vistas. We will try to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and provide you with all the amenities that you enjoy at home.
What makes this House unique
We are fluent in several languages aside from English, such as Japanese, Tagalog, and Visayan. We have an understanding of the area and culture to support you with advice. Oh, and if you desire a wedding ceremony, or even to renew your vows, we can arrange some one familiar with Hawaiian customs and language to act as marriage officiant.

A little dream - amazing
John and Maria welcomed us at the property with their lovely dog. The premises are remote, calm and quiet. We could see the lava glowing at night. You can stay right at the shoreline. Listen to the birds, the frogs and the waves. Visit the kois and feed them. The house has more than everything - from bikes and snorkeling gear over washing machine and dryer to cooler, complimentary water and headlights (for walks to the ocean in the evening - We could see a cruise ship leaving Hilo.). There was shampoo, beach towels and so on as well. We enjoyed the stunning view of the ocean, walked on old lava streams, snorkeled and swam with turtles, ... The hosts are there if you need help, recommendations or information. They are so nice and kind.
It was a little bit difficult to open the gate because the lock wasn’t our friend. :-)
All in all it was a fantastic stay with amazing experience. John and Maria, build your small paradise there, live your dream.
This property was absolutely perfect. This unit was spotless and everything we could possibly need was generously made available to us. Super hosts.
Amazing view of Kilauea at night from a perfectly safe location. Hands down this is absolutely the best place to stay on the Hilo side of the island.
Beautiful, private and comfortable
We would have stayed in a tent for a view like this. Instead, we got a cozy home with every amenity we could need. It felt like a private piece of heaven. We could actually see the ocean (and the lava flow) from the bed. No matter how hot, buggy and wet it got outside, the inside stayed dry and bug free and though not cool, at least not overwhelmingly hot. You'll be driving 20 or 30 minuted to the nearest grocery, so stock up on food. Cooking utensils are supplied. This is a perfect spot for a romantic getaway.
John was there to greet us when we arrived! This place is very quiet and VERY remote. You hear the ocean, it's peaceful. There's literally EVERYTHING you need! Cooler, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, fully equipped kitchen and even a washer and dryer. Anything you can imagine is there. They even provided us with little treats like chocolates and soda :). At night you can go to the cliffs, watch the moon, watch the waves and especially the volcano that glows only during the night (far far away, don't worry.) The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because the place can get really humid and hot. There's no AC so you need to get used to the humidity even with the fans. Regardless that fact, it was a wonderful stay and the place was really clean. Thank you for your hospitality :)
Beautiful new guesthouse on a quiet street overlooking the ocean.
We loved our stay at Kailea! This beautifully decorated new guest house was a perfect little retreat. We enjoyed the soothing sounds of birds, coqui frogs, and the ocean waves. This location was convenient for sightseeing around the Hilo area. We had a great time visiting parks, restaurants, shops, Rainbow Falls, & the Hilo Farmers Market, just to name a few outings. On clear evenings, we were able to look across the water from this property and see the glow in the sky from the lava coming from the vents miles away. This was a rare opportunity to view this historic natural event from a safe distance. Even though the eruptions were taking place during our entire trip to the Big Island, we were completely safe and visited so many wonderful places. We hope to visit Kailea again one day! Mahalo to our hosts, Maria & John! We enjoyed visiting with you and wish you the best for your wonderful property.
For an off-the-beaten path vacation.
May 8-14, 2018: This is the second time I have stayed with John and Maria at one of their properties. Last year I stayed at Bamboo Garden and this year at Kaliea. If you want to stay away from the tourist areas, along a quiet street and on a rocky Hawaiian coast line, Kailea is the place the stay. The property is very clean and very well stocked with amenities (towels, soap, shampoo, fully stocked kitchen, gas grill, outdoor equipment, laundry, cleaning supplies, smart tv with roku, etc.). The property is gated and locked and they provide a garage door opener and keys to the french doors and inside garage door. Do not let the town/area and subdivision dissuade you from staying at this property, but if you are expecting a tourist area with many restaurants, this is not the area to rent. I enjoyed going to both Hilo and Pahoa for dinner. I happened to be staying in Kea'au during the Kilauea eruptions. I can't guarantee you won't feel an earthquake (only small, very short ones due to being out of the rift zone), but the trade winds do keep the vog and fumes away. I did not feel I was in danger from any volcanic activity while staying here. Last year with no active eruptions happening, I did not feel any earthquakes even in the National Park. I enjoy the Big Island because it is quiet, the hiking is amazing (especially hiking on old lava fields) and I love the eco-diversity of the island. It is a very interesting place both culturally and environmentally Skip the Kona coffee and buy Ka'u coffee. Malasadas from Punalu'u bakery. Attend a star party at the visitor center on Mauna Kea (dress warmly). If the park is open, visit Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and The Place of Refuge National Historical Park in Kona. If you love waterfalls visit Akaka state park. Hike/off-road to a secluded beach. Eat local hawaiian dishes. This is just a sampling of what you can do here.
Mahalo nui loa for your kind words. It is unsolicited reviews from actual guests provides a strong testimonial not only of the vacation rental, but also of the state of the Big Island as it relates to the much publicized volcanic activity now in progress. Yes, it has displaced people living along the Eastern Rift zone and destroyed some 40 structures along the course of the flow. Aside from the disruption of those unfortunate people and the loss of property, the daily lives and the quality of life for the rest of the population have been relatively unaffected. The air quality continues to be good as our location is upwind of affected area. Actually, what we are witnessing here is a spectacular geological event that occurs once in a life time. Only Goddess Pele knows how long this will continue. It is her will. Ahui hou (until we meet again).
