Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Aloha and Welcome to Nanea Kai. We are very proud to share our 1,800 sqr. ft. island style home with you. As you drive past your wooden sun carved gates, you will enter into your own private sanctuary.Our family living room is made up of Hawaii's prized Koa wood. Many windows let the cool breeze through as well as EACH room has its own ceiling fan. Our large kitchen is a great gathering spot and has a granite counter island that everyone can gather around. As you walk out onto the wrap around entertainment deck, you will look into the 1,500 sqr. ft. thermal heated swimming pond. Our pond ranges from 2ft.- 10 f. at the deepest spot. This pond is fed from under ground springs from the ocean so it rises and falls with the tide.This is also a great filtering system that keeps the water very clean and clear and with a temperature that is normally in the 80's. This makes snorkeling in the pond a pleasure. We do supply some snorkeling equipment as well as a hot/cold out side shower. If you take a right outside our drive way, you will see a tunnel of trees which leads to tide pools as well as the breathtaking view of the ocean. Walk another 6 minutes and your will be at the Wai' Ope Fish Reserve. See so many colorful fish as well as the different colored corals. This is Not a place you will find packed with people. A 5 minute drive will take you to Ahalanui warm springs park . Pahoa is a 15 minute drive with quaint restaurants and to do your marketing. Hilo Town is 30 minutes away where you can visit the farmers market with all its exotic fruits for sale as well as souvenirs, surf shops, restaurants, diving rentals , ect.. Across the street is a black sand beach were you can watch the canoe teams practice or walk and look for beach glass. Then theres the Volcano National Park you want to visit. Walk through lava tubes and see the steam vents. The Volcano Golf course is right above the park as well as the Volcano Winery. If its night time lava cascading down the volcano you want to see, thats about a 20 minute drive from our home. Viewing is free and it opens to the public at 5 p.m. Bring a jacket, flashlight (theres some at the house) and water. Park rangers are there to make sure everyone is safe. My favorite thing to do is just lay by the pond , feed the fish and enjoy the sound of the ocean. Hope you'll visit us soon.

Comfortable house perfectly located for terrific snorkelling.

  • 5 of 5

5 adults were perfectly comfortable in this house. We had all the needed amenities. Kim, the host, was always very helpful and responded very quickly with any questions or concerns. Wai Opae tidal pools have amazing snorkeling and are a 5 minute walk away. We saw an amazing number of fish as well as turtles, and an octopus. There are places to snorkel for everyone. Highly recommend this spot.

Magical Spot

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful vacation. Can't say enough good things about Kim, the location, and the place. Plenty of space for the 5 of us and quick walk to the tidepools, which are absolutely amazing. Saw schools of tangs, moorish idols, butterfly fish, huge parrotfish, turtles, eels, and even a couple of octopus. Also loved going down to Uncle Robert's on Wednesday for food and music. Can't be beat! Mahalo!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family and I. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax this is the place. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough that everything was within easy driving distances. The tide pool in the backyard was awesome for the kids and when we wanted it was just a short walk to the ocean and the big tide pools. Would recommend the big island and this house to anyone. If we make it back to the big island i would definitely look at renting this house again.

Great coastal location!

  • 5 of 5

Large home - perfect for our party of 6. Alarm system is a bit cumbersome. Great location for snorkeling.

Loved the pool

  • 5 of 5

Great house with an awesome pool in the backyard. We had two young kids staying at the house and the pool provided hours of entertainment for them and the adults. My family rented a few houses near each other in this neighborhood and we had zero problems with any of the neighbors at this house. In other houses, the neighbors were very sensitive to any noise especially after 10pm. This is a bit of a problem when you have a family of loud talkers and kids that aren't going to bed due to the time change. Highly recommend!
