About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Awesome sunsets, ocean breezes, and quiet starry nights await you at this very clean and cozy 1 bedroom home situated 400 feet up on two and a half acres in the rolling hills of the Kohala Coast. From here you are only minutes away from the finest beaches (such as Hapuna), water activites (such as sailing, fishing, whale watching, great snorkeling and diving), dining and golfing the Big Island has to offer.

Hale O Pueo is well built, light, airy, and located where the sun shines 350 days a year. This tranquil, end of the road property is lavishly landscaped with a variety of tropical flowering plants and trees. Comfortably furnished living room framed by night blooming jasmine and lush bamboo, opens out through sliding glass door onto the covered lanai. Luxuriate here in the serene setting and balmy ocean breezes as you swing in the hammock or nestle into the tropical furnishings.

Wake up in your queen sized bed to the morning sun glistening on the ocean below as you look out the large sliding door. Step out onto the covered lanai to take in the expansive, unobstructed views of the rolling hills, ocean, coastline and nearby Hualalai Volcano as you plan your day in paradise.

BBQ on your lanai along with gas burners, new appliances and everything necessary for your dining needs. Includes breakfast bar and beautiful bamboo set.

Tiled bathroom with large vanity opens up to your exotic private outdoor shower, surrounded by red lava rock walls and tropical plants.

Check in 3PM; Check Out 11AM (sometimes flexible)

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just could not leave without letting you know how much we enjoyed your beautiful home. The gardens and the view are magnificent. It is truly one of the most serene and lovely spots we have EVER visited! If/when we return to Hawaii, we would love to stay here again- and for a much longer time. This is truly a 5+ star home, and would highly recommend it. Thank you for your hospitality and your many kindnesses. We wish you continued peace and happiness.

Best place to stay on the Big Island period!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and I can't say enough good things about this property! I almost don't want to tell you how great it was because I want to be able to get it anytime I want! The property was so gorgeous and so well decorated with amazing finishes while still keeping the old Hawaiian charm. The landscaping was immaculate. You were able to enjoy nature feeling 1 million miles away, well being so close to town. The bed was so comfortable, best night sleep I've had in a long time! I loved having my morning coffee on the lanai and getting to feed the geckos my leftover lychees, and then enjoying my morning shower outdoors. This place has such a peaceful serene vibe. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owner and she was nothing short of amazing, so sweet and hospitable! We will definitely be back! -Jenny and Scott Heimaster

Retreat in No. Kohala

  • 5 of 5

Hale O'Pueo is the perfect retreat in No. Kohala on the Big Island of Hawaii. It rests up in a rural area of the island close to the Northern tip and the wonderful town of Hawi, and within 10 miles of diverse and active Waimea. You can plan day trips to Kailua-Kona (and Walmart/Costco...), the beautiful Hilo-town and the Hamakua Coastal drive, or just hang at Hapuna Beach and body surf. When you return to your piece of paradise, the peace overtakes your soul, you can shower outdoors and prepare the perfect meal in the large and fully equipped kitchen. WiFi is available, gorgeous sunsets from your lanai and your favorite games on the large-screen TV, or you can just listen to the abundant bird life and feel the Hawaiian breezes. Kalia has built a lovely home-away-from-home and I, for one, will surely return. Mahalo.

Owner's Response: It is a joy to be able to provide a wonderful home away from home that has such easy access to 5 stunning beaches, including Hapuna just 10 minutes away and be able to hike, sight see, and participate in water activities close by.

We loved this place! What impressed us both was the attention to detail. All of the beach and snorkel gear were readily available. The kitchen was also well equipped and we are most of our meals at the house. But most of all we enjoyed the absolute beauty, peace and quiet of the house. There was almost no noise or light pollution and the view was fantastic. We are already planning our next trip to the Big Island and we will definitely rebook this location!!

Fantastic hidden gem in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Kalia’s place is a beautiful oasis in the hills with a breathtaking view. Tough the description says “sleeps 3” we had no problem with sleeping 4 in the house as our two small kids just loved to sleep on the mattress provided. Our two boys (and us) also loved to explore the lush, flowery gardens and play with the geckos on the lanai... highly recommended for families with small kids!

lovely views, house and landscaping. Close to beaches

  • 5 of 5

Kalia has created a beautiful space in the hills above Kawaihae. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in her peaceful place. Watching sunsets from the lanai, cooking up meals in the nicely stocked kitchen, taking showers under the stars. The birds and geckos were fun to watch and listen to. We also enjoyed the proximity to several lovely beaches and sights, all in all a wonderful time!

A wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale O Pueo. Kalia is a thoughtful and gracious hostess. She checked to see that we had everything we needed just often enough and we appreciated our little visits with her.

The other reviews have said it all. Our most lasting impressions....very clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped...beautiful spot with wonderful view for morning coffee or evening sunsets... convenient location from which to explore beaches, golf courses and Waimea high country and course the sunshiny, flowery shower.

We hope to return one day!

Mahalo Kalia,

Murray and Marite
