About Iliahi

Aloha! We call the Big Island Home! As a Native to the Hawaiian Islands, my husband and I fell in love with this area for it's remote beauty & charm. You can really connect with the Aina and feel the Mana around you. We made the house open to our guest after years of living here. We love Hosting Guests from all over the world and making new friends. We have been in business for many years and loving every minute of it. We greet all our Guests and treat them like our own Ohana!

Mahalo again for giving us this opportunity and we look forward to Hosting you!

Why Iliahi chose Kehena Beach Estates

We love the Puna area for it's remote beauty, green forest, rugged coast and deep pacific blue waters. We love the east side of the Big Island as we experience no Vog due to our constant Easterly trade-winds and we experience less rainfall than Hilo. Our area is also known for it's Sunny days and Rainy nights one of the reasons why it is so green and lush. It is one of the most beautiful areas in the Hawaiian Island chain. This place holds so much History of the Hawaiian People and is sacred. This is Pele's Home! This area feels like old Hawaii, full of Beauty ,Tradition, friendly people and the Aloha Spirit truly Lives here!

What makes this house unique

Built in Bali, imported and assembled back in Hawaii, it truly is a Unique and Exotic design, almost like living in a Work of Art! The many details and handcrafted design and imported woods throughout. Many additions, plants, trees, flowers, stone gates and bamboo fencing were added thru the years. Later we added our other rental The Bali Cottage. The Bali House and Bali Cottage are totally separate homes that are gated and private from each other with their own garden, hot tubs, the only thing they share are the gated and covered carport and are situated approx. 50 ft away from each other. It is the Perfect Getaway for Lovers young and old. We are Honored and Pleased to offer our Guest the Bali House and share with them the same experience we had while living in it.

Aloha and E Komo Mai!

Guestbook comments from the owner

There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how wonderful this stay has been for my husband and I..... This was our 1st anniversary together and WOW! What a perfect place to celebrate it. We will be back to re-visit. Iliahi, your kind and loving soul is what made this retreat truly feel like we were at home.

See you and Tim again someday.

Spectacular views/spectacular house provides tranquility around the clock

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful, one-of-a-kind retreat where you can let your soul recharge while looking at the amazing Pacific view. The location of this house is stunning with water crashing on the rocks across the street from the house which is still your property to enjoy. LLiahi and Tim couldn't have been more hospitable. Tim even offered to show us around the area to catch some of the unique sites; however, we tend to be somewhat adventurous and did the exploring on our own. Any questions or problems we had, were addressed immediately. If you get a chance to stay at this beautiful retreat, make sure you take won't be disappointed!

Cool house with amazing view and nearby beautiful beach

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I made this our first stop for our honeymoon. The house is very cool and unique with a real tropical vacation vibe. The view from the front door is unreal. Also within 1 block is a black sand beach where we saw a whale swimming around our first morning. This black sand beach is a nude one which didn’t bother us but just a heads up! As for the 3 stars, the house has several geckos roaming in it. Within hours of being there, my husband and I spotted 9. When we went to go to bed we opened the blanket to see there were no sheets but just a mattress pad with stains on it. We slept in pants and a long sleeve every night because we did not want to go under the blanket. On our last night we even found gecko eggs in the house. Another issue we had was one of the front screen windows is the size of a door with no lock on it which made me anxious. Despite these problems we were on our honeymoon and made the best of it and had a great time!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for staying with us during your Honeymoon. We do not understand why you did not call us if you needed sheets for the Back bedroom if you planned on sleeping there? Upon checkin, we told you about the Ocean view Master suite with a King bed was the one with sheets, and the back room was only a Queen bed.You stated you rather sleep in a King instead. When it is only 2 guest we only make one bed which is the King bed, the extra room is for extra guest. Most of couples love the King bed and prefer it. And as far as the geckos, they are part of the Hawaii living, they are considered good luck and they do not harm you, they eat the bugs inside and there is not way to seal home entirely since it is a Bali home and we do not have A/C. The front screen door have a lock, it is located on the top inside of the door. I wish you guys could have called us and we only lived a block away and showed you and would have been more than happy to help you during your stay. With aloha, Tim and Iliahi

Absolutely wonderful and relaxing. Tropical paradise.

  • 5 of 5

The Bali house was the perfect place for my wife and I to hide out in Hawaii. Far from the crowds and traffic of Kona (let alone Waikiki). We had a lovely time. The house was perfect. Close to the ocean and the black sand beach. Great property in a remote spot 20 minutes from Pahoa and 45 minutes from Hilo. Perfect and peaceful space. Tim and Iliana are excellent hosts. Available when needed but otherwise they left us alone to enjoy the Bali house. Highly recommended and appreciated. Mahalo.

We had such a nice stay and would love to go back. It was awesome to hear the frogs at night and we were lucky enough to see the full moon rising over the ocean.
