The Ala KahaKai Trail hiking trail crosses Waialea Bay that follows the coast line over ancient fishermen's trails and the Hawaiian Kingdom roads. The trail provides access pristine shorelines.

Waialea beach also know as "69 beach" because of the number of 69 utility poles surrounding the public parking area.

Hui Pu, amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay. We visited with our three teenage sons ( ages 15, 18 and 20). The home site was a large beautiful property on a beautiful beach. We loved the beach with the shady trees, gentle surf and rope swings. The pictures from the site do not do the beach justice, it was really beautiful. We grilled out many nights and enjoyed game nights on the lanai.

What a great property - perfect for our family of 7, we enjoyed the quiet, tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect, we really enjoyed our time here and everything was as described on the website and other reviews. We spent entire days steps out our back door on the peaceful beach - such a relaxing time. The beach was great for snorkeling, sitting out in the sun or shade, and could easily run back up to the house for food/drinks.

Thanks for letting us stay at your wonderful place - mahalo.

Beautiful location; great house for a group.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay. My family and in-laws stayed for a week (4 adults, 3 kids). I would definitely stay here again. Only a couple of notes. The baby crib is not a full-sized crib, just one of those portable folding models that is quite old and a bit flimsy. The landscapers unfortunately came on the afternoon of our last full day and so we had to exit the house unexpectedly for a good two hours while they mowed and used the blower etc - they did a great job, I just wish we'd known they were coming and could have planned to be out of the house. Everything worked and the house was acceptably clean and well stocked.

Amazing beachfront home on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are amazing - steps from a beautiful public beach with large private outdoor space, plenty of seating, and an ideal hosting environment.

HIGHLY recommended for any group staying on the big island!

Ideal place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rent a house every year for a one week family vacation with our kids and grandkids. We aim for a place on a beach in a beautiful location. This house delivered. The beach is gorgeous. The house was very nice. It had more kitchen utensils, spices, beach chairs/toys and other items then we had at other rentals. That was nice surprise. We ate all our meals outside on the deck either on the picnic tables or the big round table. We all had a great time and the house was part of the reason.

If I had to say anything detracting, I would say the contract for the house seemed a little overwhelming. I had not experienced such an ominous extensive set of threats of being kicked out of a rental that had to be signed by every member staying at the house. We were also required to purchase an insurance policy at $100. Perhaps this is the contract you see for all rentals on the island. Not a big deal, but don't be surprised.

Didn't want to leave...

  • 5 of 5

First impressions of the house were a bit disappointing, but by the end of the trip I didn't want to leave. The location of the house really grows on you!!! We had a rough start, as the lock box for the key used a different phone number then we expected, and we were stuck outside or an hour- panicking . Couldn't find the owners contact info (write this down before you leave) . While waiting outside I was wondering if they were expecting us as the deck was dirty and left my feet black after walking on it.

We settled in, and the house is really quite charming- just needs a good and thorough cleaning!. Lots of trees, birds flitting about on the morning. The beach outside has lots of trees, makes it feel like there are many small private areas which is great. Also made for fun perches to look out over the water. Saw whales a few times from the beach at a distance. The swell was up, but our last couple of days were ok to snorkel and we saw quite a few fish and with better visibility farther out, , we even saw a manta ray. The location was perfect for us, I loved the immediate access to a beach where the kids could play.

While out, the owners stopped by to apologize for the lock box misunderstanding which was very appreciated, and they gave us a gift card to lava lava beach club- this meal ended up being my best on the island (I'm a vegetarian).. There are some odds and ends that were available to use such as.chairs, kids toys, some old snorkel equip. Loved the use of a big washer and dryer.

Overall, lovely house, the architecture attracts quite a few looks from people aalking on the beach! Would definitely stay again,
