The fully equipped kitchen features custom Native Koa hardwood & Mango cabinets and a six burner gas stove with griddle. French doors open the Grand Room to a private tropical resort-style pool area. Observe from the pool area beautiful sunrises & magical stargazing.

Comfortable sleeping for up to eight*, each bedroom is spacious & tastefully decorated giving different flavors of the beautiful Big Island lifestyle. The 2nd master suite has an amazing outdoor lava shower that is a joy to experience!

About The Owner

Cory and I came to the Big Island for a vacation and fell in love with its tropical beauty and rugged lava terrain. We were welcomed and embraced their Aloha spirit. It is wonderful to be able to pass that spirit on to our guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Keaau

The minute we saw it we knew we had to have it. It spoke to our heart and soul.

What makes this house unique

We love the privacy the surrounding tropical vegetation gives us. We are mesmorized by the array of birds- watching the doves 'dance', the Red Cardinals that come right up our lava wall and sing to us, the crashing of the waves on the lava cliff walls. The most clearest sky with the full moon and stargazing - you can almost touch it. We are in awe of all that surrounds us.

Great house off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

Two couples shared this house and we loved it! Our favorite part was sitting on the patio in the evening looking at the beautiful pool and listening to all the frogs. This house was in a convenient location for spending time at Volcano National Park, and for doing things around Hilo. The nugget of info that we learned from a local was that the Ace Hardware store off Orchid Land Road (about 10 minutes away) has a deli inside where they make delicious sandwiches to order. We took our own picnic lunch with us on each day’s activities. We would definitely come back to this house again.

It is just like the pictures and property discription.

  • 5 of 5

I vacation real well, I write about them , not as well.

First, we were amazed at this Beautiful house surrounded by all the plants . I went to take pictures to send to my family and ended up just sending them this listing # because that is how well the photos represent this house. listening to the Frogs at night and the birds by day, sounds so wonderful. We walked to the ocean cliffs which is just a few minutes away, to see the sunrise.

It was so relaxing to sit outside under the ceiling fan by the pool . If I had one wish for this property it would be a hot tub, Everyone else enjoyed the pool but i found it a little too cool. the weather was extra cool and rainy so that may have been why. I have never enjoyed a rental as much , i think that is because it was just like the description says. Cory is right when he says to get what you need in town before heading to the house, in miles it`s not that far but after a few trips down that road it seems longer. Loved the full size washer and dryer. totally took advantage of the beach chairs , bikes, and there is fins and masks there as well . I will look up this rental again if we go back and stay in this area to see if it`s available .

Beautiful Home & Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home was well maintained and filled to the brim with all the wonderful amenities you would need on the island! All the rooms were fresh, beds were amazingly comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with all cooking utensils needed.

The Pool was an added bonus, was very helpful to have after a long day of driving to Kona.

Wish we had more time to explore the island, next time we will book for much longer! Cory (owner) was helpful and in contact when needed.

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home!! Mahalo!

Beautiful well appointed and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the House of Paddles. There were six of us; two couples, one child and one grandmother, so we used every bed. My son loved having his own room even if it was also the laundry room. It rained the whole time we stayed but we still enjoyed the outdoors by opening up the big doors and listening to the rain. We didn't get to enjoy the pool but enjoyed sitting out there after a long day of hiking. The house is close to the meet up place for Epic Lava tours and we in fact did have an epic lava adventure. We got up at 3:30 am for the 4 am meet up and hiked 8.5 miles total to get up close to the lava with wonderful tour guides that shared their wealth of knowledge about the volcanoes and the Island. We had breakfast at the Hawaiian Style Cafe in Hilo, checked out the goodies at Big Island Candies. One night we picked up some fresh fish and Poke and came home to have a great dinner at the gorgeous dining room table. The house is a great location to access the volcano, and Hilo, even if it is 20 min to a store it is well worth the drive. If we make it back to the big Island again we will definitely stay here again.

What a special and lovely place to spend time on the big island!

  • 5 of 5

The house of paddles was even more lovely then the website let us to believe. What a very special and lovely home. We enjoyed our 10 days and although the weather was rainy and sometimes challenging, we had a wonderful time. Put on a raincoat or just let it rain on you because it was still very warm and comfy. The pool was beautiful the maintenance was perfect, and all of the amenities were lovely. Cory was very helpful and pleasant and always available. We could not have been happier with our stay!! Thank you so much for sharing!!
