About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Located on the rugged and picturesque Puna coast of the Big Island, Hale Mohalu Guesthouse is a garden residence in paradise. The lush and verdant district of Puna provides the idyllic setting for this unique botanical retreat.

Situated on twenty-two landscaped acres, the guesthouse commands sweeping ocean views to the east where the sun rises from the Pacific Ocean bathing the expansive garden and stone terrace in the early morning light...If you can pull yourself away, venture out to the nearby geothermal warm pools or the black sand beach for a sunrise swim.

Beautiful Mango wood floors, custom made furnishings from Bali and exceptional art combine to create an experience that is truly unique in the world of vacation rentals. The residence is nestled into a private botanical garden with extensive palm, bamboo, orchid and bromeliad collections, all staged within the context of manicured sweeping lawns and ocean vistas.

Property managers are onsite, comfortably situated away from the main residence to ensure your utmost privacy.

Fresh tropical floral arrangements, all gathered from our exquisite garden, will greet you throughout the entire house. Beautiful linens, comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen await your arrival.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This place exceeded our expectations! Plenty of room for our family of 7 and the house had everything we needed. After almost a week on the Kona side this was a refreshing change and so relaxing. The house and the grounds are just breathtaking! The location is still very accessible to a lot of things to do and close enough to just go back and take in the beauty all around and get some R&R in. The owners always provided prompt responses to our questions and those on site were so helpful whenever we needed anything! At the same time we always felt we had complete privacy! Highly recommend this place if you want to get away from things a bit but also still want to explore the Hilo side. Mahalo!

Hawaii's Most Inviting Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have frequented this fabulous vacation rental many times since 2013. I seek the Big Island for relaxation and restoration. So fortunate to have found Hale Mohalu. Full of wondrous and thoughtfully crafted gardens, exquisite orchids grafted amongst the palms. Avocado and lychee groves nestled in 20+ acres atop a sweeping vista, all with the most breathtaking view. Privacy and luxury assured at this three bedroom home, which is consistently clean and welcoming. Equipped with a gourmet kitchen and choice linens. A Helpful staff is there to provide inside tips about the Big Island. Lava tours, onsite message and even a cleaning service! With close access to Volcano National Park. This side of the island is abundant in beautiful tide pools and is ideal for hiking. I've traveled most of the Big island and a good part of Hawaii. No other location compares and, thus my family returns to Hale Mohalu. I would highly recommend this residence for personal and family use, friends, romantic getaways, the discerning traveler and undoubtably, weddings or party's. Aloha!

Beautiful Grounds

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well equipped. Beds were comfortable.

Beautiful view from the living room and lanai. Grounds were great for stolling in the evening with lots of bird song. Caretaker lives on the property so any needs or concerns were looked after promptly.

Would definately recommend this as a place to stay for a couple, family or group.

Awesome Rain Forest Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our three children stayed here in December and absolutely loved it. The house was just as the pictures described. The grounds were gorgeous and we enjoyed being able to eat some of the fruit grown on the grounds. Michael was a wonderful host and helped us out especially when we accidentally left our son's pillow. We hated to leave it and would not hesitate to come back again.

beautiful tropical oasis

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was one of the best parts of our vacation. We loved the gorgeous setting of the property and cozy secluded location of the house. Waking up and having coffee on the patio overlooking tropical flowers and foliage was a treat every morning. Mike was a great host and made extra efforts to accommodate our requests. 5 stars! Highly recommend!

Garden of Eden

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful place! Room for six or more, but it was just my wife and me. We enjoyed the serenity, the wonderful plants, and the natural feel. Lots of coqui frogs at night, and amazing stars. The kitchen is fully equipped, except for a microwave. It is off the grid, but you'd scarcely notice. Convenient to the Kapoho tide pools, the village of Pahoa, and the clothing optional black sand beach. (Property itself is also clothing optional, so we did not go to the beach) A bit of a distance from Hilo, about a 40 minute drive, so if you are doing things in that area, you do need to plan.

I would recommend this to anyone who has the desire to enjoy their time in Hawaii away from crowds, and in a lush setting. Mike, who manages the property was very helpful, yet we rarely saw him!
