About the property

Hale Iki means Little House, but how about a little house right on the ocean? Just 950 sq. ft, it is a treasured family home for over 50 years. Tropical sunsets and the wide Pacific Ocean is all yours, right out front, all day long for you to enjoy. It's not fancy, just a comfortable clean beach pad. If you want luxury, then please rent the homes on either side for $500+/night. With two bedrooms, a queen bed in one and 2 twins in the other (a foam mattress topper can convert the twins to another queen bed if needed), each room has their own private bathroom attached. There's both an indoor & outdoor shower. Washer & dryer. A complete kitchen, TV, DVD player, books to read, snorkels, fins and boogie boards to borrow, and a lava BBQ grill. The best day is spent relaxing on the chaise lounges reading a book on the lanai or a road trip to see the erupting volcano. Could be a glassy ocean for easy snorkeling out front, or if the surf's up just walk 4 houses down to Kahalu'u public beach for surfboard/SUP rentals and local snow-cones. Hale Iki is on a large flat lot, literally right on the ocean and surrounded by lawn, a very old banyan tree, a low lava rock wall and tide pools. Just 4 miles from Kona town, (home of the Iron Man Tri-athalon), in October, the marathon runners go past right out front on Ali'i Drive.

Please know, we are family owners who prefer people who can understand & respect the treasure found at Hale Iki. Many months are booked ahead year-after-year, by return renters who realize how wonderful our spot is. It is our home through 3 generations. It's clean classic Hawaiian style living. In fact, the highest honor in Kona is to be asked if you're a "local" or Kama'aina. Sorry, there's no air conditioning, just ceiling fans & fresh breezes is all you need. There's lil' green geckos scampering across the walls sometimes, but they gobble up the bad bugs. Sometimes, ants crawl into the kitchen, but only if you leave your crumbs out on the counter. This is Hawaii and you will love it. You might get lucky and find an open week or two to enjoy Hale Iki as your home base on the Big Island.

P.S. Please know that it sleeps only 4. If you have more friends coming along, just ask them to stay nearby... Mahalo!
