Property description

Please note that VRBO/Homeaway's "Instant Quote" is often incorrect. Please see "Rates" for details

Do you long for…

The majesty of a panoramic ocean view lit by the glow of a tropical sunset?
The grandeur of a star-filled sky unbroken by streetlights or civilization?
The relaxation of watching ocean waves and swaying palms from your patio?
The enjoyment of a steaming cup of coffee, a good book, and a beautiful sunrise?
The solitude of a perfectly quiet evening touched only by the sounds of birdsong and breezes?

But also want…


The fun of swimming and relaxing in your private pool and sun deck?
The joy of swimming and snorkeling with the turtles at a stunning black sand beach?
The excitement of exploring a volcanic wonderland of lava flows and ancient caverns?
The romance of a soothing spa and glass of wine under a tropical sky?
The convenience of nearby shopping, gas, dining, and community library/clubhouse?

Then this might be the perfect spot for you to enjoy your stay in paradise!

Located 45 miles south of Kailua-Kona and 60 miles from Hilo, we offer the wonderful experience of 'Old Hawaii' with its serenity, quiet, and charm. In addition, we are ideally located to allow you to explore both sides of the Big Island. A five minute trip up to the highway takes you to the growing town of Ocean View, with its grocery and hardware stores, restaurants, gas stations, farmers market, and an active community center with library and computer center.

Nearby must-see attractions include the black sand beach at Punalu'u, the green-sand beach and cliffs at South Point, Volcano National Park, and Kula Kai caverns. For the hikers, don't miss walking about 2 ½ miles down to the beach and lagoon at Pohue Bay where you will likely have it to yourselves (especially on a week day). A quick trip to the quaint town of Na'alehu lets you avail yourselves of organically grown local produce, local style restaurants with live music, and a fabulous bakery. Journeying a bit further takes you through lush rain forest to the Kapoho Tidepools with its outstanding snorkeling and abundant sea life.

On the Kona side, you can take time to kayak with the dolphins in Kealakekua Bay and enjoy one of the best snorkeling spots in the state! Of course, you can always head up to Kona or Hilo and enjoy the many sights and experiences they offer and still have plenty of time to return home for dinner on the lanai at sunset.
Hale Li'ili'i Maluhia, or 'Little House of Peace', is at 600' elevation and 2 miles from the coast, providing panoramic ocean views and perfect temperatures and humidity year round. Its unique location at the southern end of the island allows you to experience both fantastic sunsets and sunrises! Because of our low elevation and the cooling trade winds, we are rarely affected by the vog that can affect the Kona Coast. But we are still on the sunny side, where we don't have the rain and the bugs of the Hilo side

Hale Li'ili'i Maluhia is 1000 sq. ft. and features an open floor plan with a living area, dining area, breakfast bar, kitchen, and large bath. The entire unit is located on ground level, providing easy access without the need to negotiate stairs. We provide high speed internet. There are two large glass sliding doors providing abundant light and air which open onto the pool and patio area.

With a king size bed and 32' flat screen TV with Dish Network, it is a great place to relax at the end of a long day of sightseeing and swimming. Two ceiling fans supplement the tradewinds and provide a restful cooling breeze.
The kitchen is open, with a breakfast bar for informal dining. It is well equipped and has oak cabinets. It is ready for you to make your favorite island dishes or just pop something in the microwave for a quick snack. We have tried to provide everything you might need to feel completely at home. If you do need something special, it is usually readily available at the local market.

The pool and spa area is spacious and enclosed by lava rock walls. The 20' x 40' pool is covered to allow for solar heating and is surrounded by tiered concrete decking. A propane fired 5' x 7' spa sits adjacent to the pool for soothing away your tensions at the end of the day. Lounge chairs and a table set allow for relaxation and seating and a gas barbecue is available for outdoor dining. Please note that this area is shared with the owner and his wife living upstairs.

To foster the spirit of quiet and solitude, please be courteous and observe 'quiet hours' before 8:00 AM and after 9:00 PM.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My wife and I used to live in California and love the sun and the sea. We fell in love with the Big Island during our many vacations to Hawaii, and were fortunate enough to purchase this property for our retirement home. We are avid ballroom dancers and crafters and plan on building a dance and art studio on the property.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean View, HI, USA:
We love the rural charm of 'Old Hawaii' and serenity of the south end of the island. It is on the 'sunny side' of the island and offers a panoramic view of the ocean 2 miles away. We enjoy watching the whale migration in season from our lanai. We also wanted to be in an area relatively free of the 'vog' that can affect the higher elevations and coastal areas to the north. We enjoy having services and amenities close by to avoid the need for frequent trips in to Kona or Hilo. We love the home and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
At 'Hale Li'ili'i Maluhia' you can experience the peace and refreshment of 'getting away from it all' while still 'having it all'. Your vacation can be as active or relaxed as you wish. You can explore the richness of the Big Island or relax with a book on the lanai or by the pool. Kids will enjoy the opportunity to swim and splash about and adults can enjoy a relaxing soak in the spa at the end of the day. It provides a great base for exploring the delights of the east side of the Island without the long drive back to Kona. Make sure you take the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular, star filled night skies and look for shooting stars. The star-gazing is truly world-class!!
