This home is located in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision conveniently located about 20 minutes Southeast of Hilo between the quaint villages of Kea'au and Pahoa. Hale O' Kealoha Ala Kai, The House of Love by the Sea, is your ultimate oceanfront home, with private swimming pool, and jacuzzi tub. O'Kealoha is 20 minutes away from Hilo International Airport. Volcanos National Park and the Kilauea volcano is a 45 minute drive. Pu'u' O o'o crater can be seen from the back of our home when active at night, you can see the orange glow of lava making its way to the ocean. O' Kealoha is a beautiful large private home to bring your family and friends to...for the vacation of a lifetime. All the roads to this home are paved and easy wheelchair access. In this private home you can relax and take it easy. The neighborhood is safe and the neighbors are warm and friendly. Take a hike along the coastline to Shipman Beach and on your return enjoy a cocktail and Hawaiian barbecue. Then just for fun, cool off in your own private pool. Or sit out back and be amazed and consumed by the sights and sounds of the Pacific Ocean. Take a deep breath, enjoy some of the cleanest air on earth… and be rejuvenated.

This oceanfront home is steps away from the cliff’s edge. Thrill-seekers will enjoy the crashing ocean waves and spectacular rainbow light-shows throughout the day. This lovely home welcomes you and your family with the gentle, aloha spirit. Mahalo.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Let me introduce myself, I am Alfreda McDonald but I prefer Eva my husband Robby, and I live in California on the coast between Monterey and Santa Cruz. In 2014 we decided to invest in our beautiful vacation home in a extraordinary location. We have enjoyed renting our lovely Hawaiian home for many years, and would be most delighted to have you and your family enjoy our wonderful House of Love by the Sea.

Why the Owner Chose Hawaiian Paradise Park, HI, USA:
I fell in love with the home in 2004 the location is unbelievably beautiful and the ocean can be seen from all rooms on the property. Our home is easy to get to from the Hilo International Airport and I can get our supplies and get home in 20 minutes after a tiring flight.The home is our retirement home which we are enjoying renting to travelers like yourself. Aloha.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is beautiful home besides a place to sleep eat and clean up it has many amenities that can't be beat. Sitting out back in the morning having tea and watching the sun rise, or feeling the cool breeze in the afternoon heat. Oceanfront is very special few homes have this distinction, ocean views, the sound, and taste of salt on your lips. I love to take a night time swim in the salt pool or a morning swim to wake me up:) It's the ideal home for the family vacation staying in a safe, neighborhood setting close to shopping, restaurants and all kinds of recreation.
