We are pleased to announce the Hawaii Volcano National Park is scheduled (tentatively) to reopen on September 22, 2018, following its closure since May due to the eruption of fissures in the lower Puna district and the subsequent collapse of the summit caldera. Our thoughts and prayers are always with the victims of this event.
"Kealohapau'ole", Hawaiian for “Everlasting Love", will serve your vacation needs a whole new level in vacation rentals.
Sitting at a cool 2400' elevation, where nights can get down to the 50s and warming up to the comfortable low 80s during the days,
Kealohapau'ole is ideally situated 20 minutes away (17 miles) from Hilo town and 20 minutes away (16 miles) from the world renowned Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Only about 5 minutes off the main highway, Kealohapau'ole is beautifully located on the front of a ¼ acre of land, in a small subdivision. Nestled within a ohia and waivi forest, Kealohapau'ole has a large inviting covered deck (over 300 sf!) overlooking a huge back yard.
Watch the adjacent forest for native Hawks during the day. In the evening, enjoy the uncountable amount of stars and cool clear nights.
Kealohapau'ole has everything you would need for a comfortable vacation in the mountain side. From a cup of fresh brewed Kona coffee on the covered deck, to reading a book about Hawaii while dressed warmly in the comfortable bathrobes provided, Kealohapau'ole has an experience waiting for you.
The fully equipped kitchen has a range/oven, fridge/freezer, all pots, pans, and serving dishes. Even a coffee maker and toaster is provided.
The living room is fully furnished with a flat screen TV (with satellite programming), and a comfortable sofa. Vaulted ceilings with a ceiling fan make this room very large and inviting. Wifi is broadcast throughout the residence.
The master bedroom hosts a king size bed, with double end tables and lamps. With a beautiful view thru the french doors, you can even access the rear covered deck directly from the bedroom. A space heater with fireplace effect was recently installed so you can enjoy the evenings when it cools down.
Kealohapau'ole features a well designed bathroom. A jacuzzi tub is available after those long walks in the National Park. A 2 person walk-in shower is very spacious. Even a make-up counter was installed to make preparations for your special night out even easier.
Kealohapau'ole is very committed to promoting the Island's many products and services. When available, we at Kealohapau'ole try to provide locally harvested products.
Every guest will enjoy fresh flower arrangements, purchased from local farmers and their families. Fresh fruit awaiting your arrival is hand picked by us the morning of your arrival, available from the many local farmers markets. Kealohapau'ole even provides sample Kona coffee blends. As our list continues to expand, we hope you find the local products very exciting.
If you are looking for a place to detach from the rush of normal life, or if you are looking for a convenient location on your vacation that is central to many fine activities, Kealohapau'ole would be a great pick.
Thank you for joining us on your vacation needs!
