About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

This incredible location was chosen by the subdivision owner as his personal residence when initially developed. This East facing (sunrise side) oceanfront home is located on a double lot adjacent to 200 acres of lush, unpopulated state land. A great living room of 1200 square feet, 18 foot tall ceiling and several sofa groups is a wonderful gathering place. A short walk down a secret path, next to the house, takes you to the oceans edge where you can walk for miles on a lava shelf. There are pockets of black sand and tide pools on the shelf.

Why Kathy chose Kehena Beach Estates

We have family on the Big Island.

What makes this house unique

Our house is very private, with a great view of the ocean splashing on the shore. Whales passing just off shore and pods of dolphins to swim with at the black sand beach within a 5 minutes walk. The sunrises get better and better each morning. And the stars at night are so bight you feel as if you can grab them.

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous ocean front house with incredible vistas located in the midst of an area rich with abundant natural natural beauty! The spirit of aloha lives here and it infects the inhabitants with feelings of peace, oneness with nature, and the enjoyment of living in the present. Throw in friendly locals, a few very interesting farmer's markets, a couple of very good restaurants, natural geothermal hot ponds, beautiful tide pools, incredible volcanoes, numerous hiking trails, and anyone who enjoys the wonders of nature and experiencing quaint local cultures should have a very fulfilling experience here. Low stress combined with numerous rich experiences provided for a very enjoyable vacation. We are already planning our next visit!

The house was great. On a super quiet street and only 5 minutes walk away from a black sand beach!

The house is just what you need for a relaxing holiday. Very clean and extremely well stocked with everything! Owner was very easy to work with. The great room you see in the pictures is just that. GREAT!!! Lots of places to sit and relax inside and outside. The house is just a 15 minute drive to the part of Volcanoes NP where the lava flows into the ocean ( you cannot take your car all the way to the flow, you will have to hike or bike there from the parking). Our family enjoyed having so much space and we got up every morning to watch the sunrise. And my children named all the geckos... a sincere Dankeschön to the owners! Unbelievable memories to take back to Germany.

The ocean view was awesome, the great room idea was good but very dark. The geckos inside were not bad and ate all the other bugs that were inside. Could not have any lights on at night because of all the bugs that came in (walls and ceiling were covered). Screens not a good fit, gaps. The lava rock shelf was a cool walk. Was old and dated. Did not have any problem with the water containment system. Liked the games that were left to use.

Breath Taking Views! Wonderful for groups. Plenty of space. We love it there!

Puna Hale is a magical place to stay! We have stayed here many times and plan to come every year. The view can't be beat. Whales pass by in season and there is a pod of dolphins that regularly feeds outside. Kehena Beach is down the road. We spend great days here cooking food for each other and feeling the Aloha on this side of the island. It is also close to the lava flows for those who are trying to check out the Earth creating itself. This year my wife and I got married on site and were able to share this special place with close family and friends. The site was able to accomadate all of us and it was a perfect day! Can't say enough about this wonderful place!

LOVED our stay, albeit too short. We could have easily stayed another week! We even enjoyed the company of the resident gecko's. The weather was perfect, the sunrise's were beautiful and the quiet was amazing.
