About the property

3 Unit Home: Walking Distance From Keaukaha Beaches

**New Listing: Posted November 11, 2015**

Our home was given the name Hale Nani Ma Ka Lihi Kai, Beautiful Home at the Ocean’s Edge, by a Kumu Hula who stays at our home during the Merry Monarch Hula Festival.

This remodeled Kama'aina two story beach house and studio is rented as individual units or all together. Each unit has sleeping accommodations for four. The upstairs and studio units offer AC. The downstairs unit does not have AC but is very cool throughout the day and evenings. Discounts are offered when multiple units are rented. Each unit has its own patio and there is a large shared outdoor patio with seating and a grill. There are ocean and garden views from the upstairs patio and front porch and it is only a short two minute walk to beaches, tide pools, and ocean shoreline.

Our vacation rental provides an ideal location for visitors looking to visit all sites on the east side of the island. The home is 5 minutes from the airport, shopping, restaurants, and Hilo’s popular Downtown Farmer's Market. The Hawaii Volcano National Park and waterfalls along the Hamakua coast are a 30 to 40 minute drive away. The world famous Arnotts’ Tours to the Volcano, Mauna Kea, and other famous vacation sites are less than a five minute walk from the home.

The upstairs beach house provides a full kitchen and bathroom, one bedroom, two living areas (one with a full size futon sofa bed) and a large patio overlooking a pond and garden. Although, there are ceiling fans throughout, air conditioning is also available for those warm tropical nights. The downstairs provides a kitchen area with microwave, refrigerator and other small appliances, a living room and dining room area, full bath with shower, small and large outdoor patios, and bedrooms one with a full size bed and the other a queen bed.

A walkway connects a studio unit with full kitchen, dining area, and bath. This air conditioned unit also provides a queen size bed and full size futon sofa bed.

Come visit and stay close by to everything Hilo has to offer.

About Claudia Calles

Local Kamaaina family that grew up and lived in Hawaii for generations.

Why Claudia Calles chose Hilo District

The property has been passed down for generations and has a historic history. The owners grandparents and great grandparents lived and loved this ocean home. Their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren have spent long endless summers fishing and swimming in the beautiful beach and ocean nearby. As the owners children have grown they have chosen to share the beauty and island spirit of their family home with others.

What makes this house unique

This older Kamaaina home is located close to all the beautiful island attractions, yet isolated enough to provide visitors with the morning and evening quietness and serenity they long for when visiting the islands. Couples are able to enjoy quiet evenings with ocean sounds, lush green garden views, and a beautiful night sky from every patio. Families will enjoy the closeness of the ocean cove where little ones can safely swim, explore tide pools, and collect shells and other artifacts that the ocean delivers daily on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was an awesome 6 days in Hilo and living here at your property was most enjoyable & relaxing.

Thank you for the experience of living the island life - BIRDS, FROGS, DOGS, BEETLES making their noise at night & in the morning. The beach and waves (hearing the sounds) of its natural explosions. The most relaxing was the rain as it poured atop the roof.

ALL so thankful for!!

Beautiful home and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here. The yard is amazing, a great beach with tidepools and swimming is a stones throw away. We had everything we needed, boogie boards, snorkels and masks, and coffee, fantastic bread and fruit for breakfast our first morning.

This is a great place for families, couples, groups, etc. we had a single person staying in the studio, a couple upstairs and we are a couple with a 14 year old and stayed downstairs, next time we would also bring our 2 year old as the beach and tide pools are great for kids and adults.

At the beach we saw turtles and many different types of fish including a large puffer fish that was trapped in one of the tide pools. So fun to explore and sad to be leaving today!!! Thank you for an impeccable time!!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family of 9 adults. We occupied all 3 units at this property. It was perfect for us. Lots of space and privacy for those who wanted it. It also had room for us to gather on the lanai and have breakfast together. Claudia also left us some of the best sweet bread I have ever had, and coffee! She had thought of everything for the house. Lots of amenities and small touches that made the stay truly special. She even called after we arrived to check and make sure everything was in order for us. We would stay here again!

Beautiful home in the heart of Hilo

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival at the house we were welcome by goodies and tropical flowers left by Claudia and her husband. We rented both the bottom and top units which provided us with plenty of space for our party of 7. The house was beautifully furnished and fully stocked with necessities. It is located close to downtown Hilo but tucked away enough so you can fall into that Hilo lifestyle where everything moves a little slower. There is a shallow/secluded beach within a minute walk from the house (the best part was we pretty much had it to ourselves most of the time!). The property was about a 1.5hr drive to Volcano National Park, 1.5hr drive to Waipio Valley and 1.5hr drive to Kona. Claudia was also really easy to contact! She called within 30 minutes of our arrival to make sure we were able to access the house and to remind us that she was always an email/message away if we needed anything. Next time we are on the island we will definitely be coming back to this property!

Owner's Response: Thank you Dana for choosing our beach vacation home for your stay and for your kind comments about the property. We want our guests to feel the aloha spirit that the islands have to offer. Just wanted to clarify that the distance from Kona is 1.5 hours away but from our beach house to the Volcano it is about a 30-45 mins away depending on traffic. Again, thank you and come back and visit us again.

It was the perfect place for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It couldn't have been any better! Our family of 10 stayed here for 10 days and it was the perfect setup. We were all able to have our own space but yet be together at the same time. You can tell that a lot of attention has been paid to the property and living areas. Everything that we needed was there. The basket of bread, fruit and coffee that was left for us was perfect since we did not get there until late at night so waking up and not having to run to the store was great. Being able to walk just down the road to the ocean was such a plus. Getting 10 people ready to go places is not always easy but when you can walk to the beach it made the vacation much more relaxing. The location of the property is really nice. Close enough to be able to run to the store or into town but still feels secluded. We used the bbq several times and had everything we needed to make some great dinners. I would recommend getting some Ono fish from Suisan fish market. I couldn't get enough! Going to the Hilo farmers market to get fresh fruit and vegetables was amazing. I've never eaten so good. I would highly recommend staying here everything was so great! Thank you Claudia!

ALOHA spirit at its finest

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed five fabulous nights and rented the entire complex. We moved from Hilo 30 years ago and were attending the 10th annual family reunion. Two daughter-in-laws were visiting the Big Island for the first time, so having the most excellent home-away-from-home was a priority. Everything you could possibly need was provided, along with a most appreciated welcome basket of goodies in each unit!! The attention to detail was most impressive......all the units were very clean....Some of the runners in the family enjoyed safe, early morning jogs to other beaches.....the kids loved the lagoon , complete with turtles...and having an outside shower was genius....kids enjoyed playing hide and seek in the well manicured yard, and cooled off with a cold sprinkling from the shower....we will cherish this vacation for many years to come.....we would always come home from a family function and enjoy conversation and a nightcap in the outside patio area...just beautiful......if you want to experience the Big Island in comfort and convenience , this is truly the place to be !!!! ........mahalo to two most hospitable and thoughtful owners, Claudia and David!!!!!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

June 2016 -- rented both of the house units, upstairs and downstairs. Very clean and comfortable accommodations. Claudia provides bread, fruit, and coffee. Much appreciated. Short walk to the beach, where we were able to see two large turtles. Since my wife is a former Hilo girl, we have visited Hilo many times -- this is the best accommodation we have been able to find.
