Our Texas 97 Ford F150 has retired to sunny Hawaii and likes to show you the sights if you are staying at our home for 14 nights or more. My rates are below the rental rates for late model vehicles available at the airport. My base truck rental rate is $189/wk or $689/month. Turo actually manages my truck rental and additional fees may be applied.
I only rent my truck to my guests so my truck will only be available to you during your stay at Hale Manu. (NOTE: As Turo insures my vehicle rental, they will screen you so if you have a blemished driving record they may not accept your application. ) Mahalo!

Only 31 miles to Volcano National Park where there are many trails including one through a lava tube!
There’s a couple of amazing walks you could take every day here. You can walk the trails along Kaloli Point to view the lava cliffs. Stay far back from the edge as the surf can knock you over - remember never turn your back to the ocean!.
If you want a 1/2 day picnic hike follow the Puna trail at end of Beach Rd to Shipman Beach. Make sure to take a couple of water bottles per person and make sure to wear shoes you don’t mind getting a little muddy. It’s a good hour and a half walk for two fit adults so plan accordingly. Remember to always follow the left-most trail. Trust me, you cannot get lost in these woods. Just keep going until you see a beach and it will be awesome.
Area Dining recommendations:
Hilo Bay Café: It’s as close to fine-dining as you’ll find on this side of the island, complete with prices. This is actually a pretty good place to get a drink.
Kaleo’s (in Pahoa): This was the second restaurant we found that had a Mediterranean bent. Whatever, it also has a cool regional menu with local caught fish, interesting only-in-Hawaii flavor combos, and awesome portions. You’re getting a good value with this menu.
Farm & Markets:
Puna Girl Farms: Do not miss this awesome place. Was once a completely destitute abandoned macnut farm. With 15 year’s worth of love, labor, and pain and it is now a thriving farm dealing mostly with macnuts but happily sprinkled with diverse regional fruits as well. The incredibly warm and open owner, Cherie, is worth the trip to the big island just to hear her story. She’s amazing. Trust us. She’ll have some fruit for sale and chances are her starfruit tree is overflowing and she’ll BEG you to come on in and pick as many as you like.
Maku’u Sunday Market: Go here. Every Sunday. You can find most of your food needs met here as well as some cool local “other stuff”. Treasures to be found here. Great food court too.
Uncle Rogers’ Wednesday Night Market: This is a half-market, half-party. You can purchase beer there ( for PBR… that works..) or you can bring your own with you. You can also get a stone-fired pizza, some lilikoi fried chicken n waffles, some crazy kombucha on tap, etc etc etc. You’ll definitely hear live music. If you know anyone in the Puna area, you’ll probably see them here.
Pools & Beaches:
It’s that beautiful. It’s amazing snorkeling or the most surreal picnic you’ll ever have.
Papalokea - Green Sand Beach: This is one of those places that will not exist forever. South Point Road is located between mile markers 69 70 down highway 111. From there, you can take a left which brings you to a cool parking area from which you walk a moderate 2.5 mile hike up and down some craggily volcanic landscape. At the end of that walk is one of the only 2 actually green sand beaches in the world. It’s, eh… green. It’s pretty nice. The water there is great, swimming is awesome. Also, chances are there is a guy or two with some Polaris off road vehicles to shuttle you there mainly because Polaris rides are pretty fun.
Punalu’u – Black Sand Beach: This is the tourist friendly, definitely going to see a sea turtle on black sand, beach. Amazing snorkeling here. This is mostly a community beach so be respectful of the local folks. Maybe bring some cash and buy their way too expensive cans of coke or something. It’s really the only actual industry some of those folks have available to them.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Kim & Ted plan to retire to their lovely home in Kaloli Point in a couple of years. Meanwhile we are listing our home as a vacation rental so others can experience Hawaii in a natural setting. Ted enjoys woodworking and has just built a beautiful new lanai off the living room. Kim enjoys playing golf and there are many courses on the Big Hawaii (Big Island Golf Tip: When you play golf on a side of a volcano the ball only roles in one direction!). Kim also enjoys salt or fresh water fishing. We are most proud to have recently become grandparents! We look forward to taking our grandson to the Hilo Ice Cream stand and the 'What's Shakin' smoothy stand in a couple of years so that he can experience all the unique Hawaiian fruit flavors! Ted enjoys tinkering on his antique cars on the mainland. He shipped over his 97Ford F150 a couple of years back and we enjoy driving around the island with the windows down enjoying the freshest, cleanest air in the world! While at the house Ted & Kim like to take 5 mile walks along along the coastal roads and trails in Hawaiian Paradise Park. He also enjoys reading at the homes peaceful setting and plans on writing his 'bucket list' novel there in the future. He also enjoys driving up to Volcanoes National Park for a Ranger tour or listen to a guest speaker in the visitor center auditorium. He also enjoys visiting the Lyman Museum in Hilo where they have guest lecturers speaking twice per month. When not in Hawaii, Kim and Ted live and work in a renovated home built in 1915 in historic Avondale section of Montrose, just west of downtown Houston, Texas. NEW LISTING: VRBO listing 909405: We created a 1 bedroom furnished apartment in 'Hopkins House'. Check it out!
Why the Owner Chose Hawaiian Paradise Park, HI, USA:
We preferred the wet side versus the dry desert (Kona) side of the Big island. The rainfall keeps the area vegetation lush and colorful and supports the large bird population. There are many farmers markets that have locally grown fruits and vegetables. Our home is on a agricultural zoned 1/2 acre property that offers privacy and a peaceful getaway after a long day visiting the popular island attractions.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our family always preferred vacationing in rural settings where we could enjoy hiking, biking and relaxing in beautiful natural settings. When we visited the Big Island in 2010 we fell in love with the beautiful flora and fauna that varies greatly over short distances and different altitudes (you can travel from tropical sea level to 9200 ft in less than a hour!). The air is so fresh and the aloha spirit of the island residents is infectious!
