Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6

Hale Pali (Cliff House) is a spectacular (non-smoking) OCEANFRONT home overlooking the blue Pacific. We heartily agree with our guests who have enthusiastically stated: 'there is nothing that compares to actually being on the water' - what better way to enjoy the sound of the waves, and the smell of the sea air.

The home is beautifully and tastefully decorated and features teak furniture.

You will love cooking in the fully equipped, Rick Hartman designed, gourmet kitchen.

You can keep cool by taking a dip in our 3,000 gallon 'natural' (unheated) lava-pool or just 'chill' while lounging and sunning yourself on our small private white sand beach, you may also choose to kick back in the comfort of our shaded hammock.

If you need to stay connected you can do so via FREE WIFI.

A perfect day begins while sitting on the sea wall, sipping Kona Coffee, and looking out to sea. You will be amazed by the spectacular “blow-hole” that adds to the OCEANFRONT splendor of our seaside home.

If you are looking for 'off-the-beaten-path relaxation. We think that the serenity you will find here makes the 45 minute drive south from Kona Village very worthwhile.

About Carl Ramsey

Carl and Deborah Ramsey have resided on the Big Island for more than 30 years. They are San Francisco State Alum and moved to the islands from the Bay Area. Carl and Deb are retired after many years of rewarding work counseling in the Hawaii Island public school system (who ever thought up the idea of retirement knew what they were doing!)

Their residence is an 8 1/2 acre farm just up the mountainside from the beach house. Although the crops are not extensive, Deborah does grow some Kona Coffee.

Meeting fascinating guests from all around the planet is the best part of owning and operating Hale Pali, they say. Please come and join them along the beautiful and peaceful south kona coast.

Carl Ramsey purchased this house in 2006

Absolutely beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My family truly enjoyed our stay at the Ramsey's home! The house was spacious and beautiful. Our days were spent hiking Volcano National Park and Mauna Kea, skydiving and just adventuring around the island, but we enjoyed the beach chairs in the morning and the lanai (hammock and swing) in the evening. We saw the dolphins on our first day there! And enjoyed our chat with Carl when he stopped by. Thank you Carl and Deborah for sharing your home!

Feeling of home

  • 5 of 5

This home, amenities, hospitality of the owners, view, comfort were all absolutely fantastic. It's an hour from Kona so quiet and overlooking the ocean. Close to amazing snorkel areas as well. If you have family who get car sick just a warning the road to the house winds a lot with many switchbacks so just be prepared. Nothing dangerous just hard on delicate tummies. We loved it so much we are contemplating retirement here on the big island. What a gem!

Absolutely beautiful view of the ocean and gorgeous sunsets!!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Carl and Deborah Ramsey's home! The house was so beautiful, sparkling clean and smelled wonderful! The house was open when we arrived and the wonderful sound of Hawaiian music was playing. We arrived on June 14, 2017 and stayed until June 21, 2017. Our two daughters and our teenage grandson and granddaughter were able to see Hawaii for the first time. Our family is all about making memories and we made many more in Hawaii! The view of the ocean was breathtaking. We were able to see dolphins, a sea turtle and two sharks from the sea wall. We loved sitting on the lanai and enjoyed our meals there as well. The lava pool was so refreshing! We had the pleasure of meeting Carl and had a very nice conversation with him. We hope to come back again with our family and bring our younger grandson this time. Thank you Carl and Deborah for making our family feel right at home!
