Property description

The only way to stay closer to the ocean would to be in a boat. Sit back and watch the cruise ships slowly pass by knowing that the passengers aboard are truly envying your incredible accommodations. This quaint and unassuming second story home offers a nearly 180 degree of the mighty Pacific ocean where you can relax and watch whales as they suddenly breach the blue water, spinner dolphins playfully chase a passing fishing vessel and the rising sun as it welcomes you to an amazing array of morning colors.

The Loft at Pali Lani is situated on the same beautiful, tropical paradise as our other listing; the Pali Lani Seaside Lodge (VRBO #507322). These two homes can be rented together at a discounted rate or separately. While they do share the same tropical acreage, they are separated far enough to where privacy is not an issue. Both homes share the same covered parking area however have separate entrances. With nearly 2 acres of lush gardens surrounding the home, there is plenty of space for all.

Immediately as you enter the home your attention is drawn to the vast ocean front windows and sliding glass doors that lead out to the huge deck. Here you can spend endless hours enjoying the cool breezes from the ocean, sipping on a morning cup of coffee or watching spinner dolphins and whales playfully swim by. During whale season, there may even be nights when you can hear the whales singing.

We have made this quaint piece of paradise available as a vacation rental and at a very economical rate. We realize that so many ocean front homes set their rates out of range for many travelling couples and small families. We feel as though the Loft at Pali Lani is the perfect, unassuming option for those desiring to be ocean front yet not wanting to break the bank.

The home features hardwood flooring and is well furnished with two spacious bedrooms, which we have named the Palm and the Ocean. Both bedrooms are spacious, offer comfortable queen beds and a nice size closet to store your belongings. The kitchen is immediately off of the living area with equally incredible ocean views. The kitchen comes furnished with a built in range, full size refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster as well as pots, pans, dishes and other cooking utensils. The bathroom contains a large tub/shower combination, toilet, spacious vanity as well as a stack-able washer/dryer. The living area features a comfortable sofa, a nice flat screen television and did we mention....amazing ocean front views. The ample windows in this home do a great job of allowing the comfortable trade winds to flow throughout the home. Like the majority of homes in Hawai'i, we do not have air conditioning. We maintain a simple mindset in that when we get hot we open the windows and turn on the fan. When we get cold, we close the windows and put on socks :)

Hilo is known for its warm aloha spirit, relaxed lifestyle, unique shops, art galleries and restaurants with local regional cuisine. Local attractions include Lyman Museum, East Hawaii Cultural Center, historic Palace Theatre, Pacific Tsunami Museum, Imiloa Astronomy Center, UH Hilo Performing Arts Center and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens. Hilo Farmer's Market is a favorite for fresh, local produce. Merrie Monarch Festival, Hilo's premier hula competition and cultural event, is held annually. Hilo's black sand beaches are some of the best for snorkeling, diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming with turtles and tropical fish, or watching the whales off shore. Take a helicopter volcano tour or short scenic drive to active Kilauea volcano to view a lava flow, ride horses in Waipio Valley or tour the summit and view the night skies of Mauna Kea.

We are near Highway 19, 15 minutes to Hilo and only 20 minutes to the Airport.
Please remember that you can rent both The Loft at Pali Lani and the Pali Lani Seaside Home together at a discounted rate.
We also own another property, Old Sugar Mill Plantation, which is only 4 miles away. It is a great, ocean view home and can accommodate up to 16 persons. Click on 'See our other listings' on this website or you can cut and paste the below into your browser.

About: I am truly blessed to be not only a resident of the Big Island but to have the opportunity to manage such an incredible home for my dear friends. Helen and John, the owners, share my compassion in ensuring our guests feel the true spirit of Aloha while staying at either of the Pali Lani homes. So that our incoming guests know, in Hawai'i, we like to hug a lot! So if you reach out to shake a hand here, don't be surprised if they give you a hug in return. While you are here, you are family! It's the Hawaiian way of life.

Why Hakalau, HI, USA:
Relaxing on this raised deck takes you to that state of relaxation where nothing else seems to matter. Something about absorbing the sounds, smells and views of the ocean in this special place brings a sense of peace like no other.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This property is the perfect fit for couples or small families desiring to stay oceanfront and yet not break the bank. It also is the perfect compliment to the main house also located on the same property. Many large families and groups reserve both homes together.
