About the property

1300 Sq Ft Of Great Ocean Views And 1000 Sq Ft Deck And Pool.

Make this home your base camp for all of your Big Island adventures. This unique round house with spectacular ocean views is located one hour from Hawaii Volcano National Park and one hour to Kona, a midpoint location for your sightseeing delights. Hike from here to Honomalino beach, a super secluded black sand beach or walk down the street to some of the best snorkeling on the island. Simply relax around your own private pool viewing the countless whales and dolphins passing by in late November- April. The house has 2 bedrooms; one is a large loft with a queen bed, the master has a king bed and in the living room, a very comfortable queen sofa sleeper.

The bathroom is beautiful and boasts a, private, tropically decorated outdoor shower that we affectionately call the " Relaxation Grotto".

Beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards, shade canopy and beach umbrella are available for your use when traveling around the island. The house includes a washer and drier.

The kitchen is well equipped for all of your cooking needs as well as a nice BBQ on the deck for pool side feasts you can create. There is Wifi and Direct TV and 4 TVS . Our tax ID # is W-93553988-01

Great relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing if you’re looking to truly get away from everything. We swam everywhere and some of the best snorkeling was just down the road within five minutes of the property. It was a great spot for Day trips as well. Thank you for a great vacation!

Loved the house and the beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

They had everything we could of dreamed of at this house! The outdoor shower was fun. The pool was great to have, and we swam everyday! The drive down the mountain side was a crazy but so worth it! The view of the ocean was spectacular! There was enough room for our family of 6!

Great stay at the Tranquil Whale/Round House

  • 5 of 5

Well stocked house, nice deck and pool, great view of the ocean. This area is part of the old lava fields so there will be a different feel than over in Hilo, but all in all a great stay.

Amazing Round House with pool!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the first week of our Hawaiian vacation in this wonderful Round house. The house is so great. We sat and looked at the ocean while eating and reading and swimming in the pool. Many chairs inside and out to enjoy the views. We walked around the neighborhood, drove down the road and hiked to the beach, bought avocados, passion fruit and Tahitian limes at a roadside stand on the way up The winding road.

It was a relaxing place to call home.

- the bed was the best. Slept better than I ever do! Loved it.

- the shower was so fun. A whole room to shower in.

- everything you need was there.

- great decor in the house. Fun to see such creativity!

- used the pool every day!

Beautiful views and private location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoy the location and the views from the home. The location of the home is in the middle of a lot of sites to see in either Kona or Hilo. The ,"Round House" is equipped with all the a appliances, dishes and supplies ( towels and paper supplies) you need for your stay

It feels just like home...
