Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Gorgeous and Well-Appointed Bali Temple offers 160 degree Ocean Views and a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful Hawaii experience that will leave you fully rejuvenated.

Bali Temple is truly a unique and special place to land in Hawaii, and is known for its dramatic setting, beautiful architecture and luxuriously well-appointed amenities.

Bali Temple is located right on the 1993 lava flow which has created 160 degree expansive Pacific Ocean whitewater views for your enjoyment. There is a private black sand beach a few hundred yards away to enjoy year round sunrises and sunsets and watch the humpback whales breaching during the winter months.

Bali Temple was completely remodeled in 2007 and enjoys a fully equipped modern kitchen, double vanity sinks, 6’ spa bathtub, granite, gorgeous Mahogany wood trim accents, expansive picture windows looking out to the ocean, large mirrors, a covered lanai, Tempur-Pedic mattresses, 100% cotton bedding, and thick bath towels.

There are many spectacular sites to visit during your stay: visit Kehena Beach, a gorgeous black sand beach where you may be lucky to swim and snorkel with wild spinner dolphins, and your (non) clothing is optional. Snorkel in the tide pools of Kapoho. Check out the numerous Volcano Touring activities such as: Volcano National Park, Lava Tree State Park, Lava Boat Tours, Lava Hikes, and the Geothermal Heated Hot Ponds. Experience an abundance of shopping for the true tastes of Hawaii with its abundant selections of fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, flowers, and unique gift items at either Maku'u Market in Pahoa (Saturday), the Kaimu Market (Wednesday night, and ½ mile away from Bali Temple!) complete with Hawaiian music, and the Hilo Farmer's Market (Wednesday and Saturday). Acquaint yourself with the Island flora with a tour at the Botanical Gardens, sightsee and explore numerous waterfalls, Whale Watch from the lanai, indulge yourself with fine Dining, and dance it all off at Ecstatic Dance on Sundays at Kalani, and then the Drum Circle on Sunday afternoon at Kehena Beach. There are numerous Yoga Classes, Pilates Classes, and massage therapists ready to treat you!

Dining options from Bali Temple are numerous: Right in the neighborhood is an authentic Ava Bar, serving up the local and relaxing Kava beverage, with the Kalapana Village Café is right next door, open til 9pm. Kalani Honua is 4 miles down the Red Road for delicious meals too. 8 miles up the road is Pahoa Town, with numerous options in Italian, Thai, Sushi, Mexican, Kaleo’s Bar and Grill, coffee shops, etc. Hilo is 30 miles for many more choices.

When my visitors depart Bali Temple, they feel refreshed, invigorated, and much more vibrant then when they arrived. The air along our coastline has been measured to be the cleanest in the United States! The lush greenery and scenic coastline areas are inspiring.

I look forward to your visit at Bali Temple…see you soon!

About Rachaelle

I fell in love with Kalapana/Kehena 20 minutes after my arrival! I have been all over the state, and have found no other place to be so close to the ways of old Hawaiian Living… the people of this community are happy and friendly and the way of life is still relaxed and laid back. There is as much of a social life in the Lower Puna area as any big city!

I fell in love with this property in ’06 and purchased it with the idea of creating a sanctuary to grow old in. Prior to my ownership, this property was a part of a Buddist’s Meditation Center and it was direct oceanfront. In the 1990 lava flow, the property was preserved as the lava swept along the shoreline, taking out the beaches and forming new ones. This newly created land now belongs to the state. There is approximately 200’ of lava between Bali Temple and the Pacific Ocean!

I saw myself living at this property forever, so I renovated it for 2 years in the style I wished to live, and it shows!

Living on an active volcano on the 2nd largest mountain on the planet (next to Mauna Kea, the other volcano of Big Island) has its benefits…there is a magnetic energy here that many feel to be “Supercharged”, lending itself to the dynamic and creative spirits of our community members.

Rachaelle purchased this house in 2006

Why Rachaelle chose Puna District

Kaimu enjoys the best weather on the island, according to most Hawaiians. More Hawaiians lived here then in any other location!

Balmy nights, and 45' of rain each year, with sunshine filled days. No air conditioning or heating is needed; I fell in love with Kalapana/Kehena 20 minutes after my arrival! I have been all over the state, and have found no other place to be so close to the ways of old Hawaiian Living… the people of this community are happy and friendly and the way of life is still relaxed and laid back. There is as much of a social life in the Lower Puna area as any big city!

What makes this house unique

A natural setting as dramatic as that which Bali Temple enjoys is rare. The energy of the active volcano, whose lava flows just 10 or so miles away, is truly invigorating.

Walks along the coastal bluffs directly in front of Bali Temple give you the experience of what Hawaii was like long ago...unihabited, wild, and sensual, with the 'Techni-Colors' of Hawaii's vivid ocean and sky blues, white puffy clouds, bright greens of the vegetation, and the sound of the crashing waves you hear all day and all night.

At night, you will be in awe at the number and brightness of the star-lite skies!

This is the local side of the island with great access to hiking.

  • 4 of 5

If you want to do the road less traveled this is the place to stay. The house has everything you need for a comfortable extended stay and a beautiful view every morning. You are close to hiking out to the lava flow or driving to both volcanoes to either drive to 140000 feet or hike across a crater. There are plenty of hiden treasures as we snorkeled in tide pools, hiked to waterfalls, and found Tina's in Hilo. This side of the island is also very affordable with great farmers markets and low cost or free access to most activities.

Gorgeous views!

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous views! So incredible to be on land that is so young. Close to Volcanoes and viewing the lava at night. Clean home with beautiful interior. We had a family of 5 here, kids slept comfortably on the pull outs in the family room. Would be wonderful for a couple as well!

Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Bali Temple felt like and was a luxurious getaway. Beautiful view of the ocean across the lava fields from the palatial four poster bed, nice bathroom with fluffy towels and jacuzzi, comfortable sitting and dining areas, and well equipped kitchen. Thoughtfully decorated and stocked without feeling awkwardly lived in, it was a wonderful spot for our last 3 days on The Big Island, from which we explored Puna, Volcano, & Hilo. Hilo Bay Cafe was delicious but make sure to get an outdoor table. Loved the Ahalanui thermal pool in the evening, snorkeling at Kapoho tide pools, and walking to Uncle Robert's Market. Be here for that on Wednesday night! It was a highlight of our trip. Had hoped to see the flowing lava nearby too but it was not a 30-45 min walk from the parking area as the guards told us, but more like a couple hrs. After about 4 miles w/o appropriate sun cover or hydration, we turned back. After nightfall would be better than early morning but expect a significant hike in the dark. We loved the Bali Temple and would love to return someday to do things we didn't get to do in the area like the lava tree park, Champagne pond, hit the galleries and shops in Hilo, the botanic gardens and waterfalls north of Hilo, the black sand beach nearby, and return to Uncle Robert's.
