About the Property

Beach House, 4 Bedrooms + extra futons, 2.5 Baths, + outside shower(Sleeps 10

WE AIM TO PLEASE YOU by providing the best equipped, outstanding vacation spot on the Kona coast!! Our charming, private four bedroom, two and a half bath beach house is across the street from Kealakekua Bay, in quaint, historic, alternately bustling and serene Napo'opo'o Village. Our home is perfect for enjoying the uniqueness of this area and the Big Island. Hale o Lei has both inside and open-air living and dining areas, private master bedroom suite, outside hot tub, a large sunning deck, and two lanais facing the ocean and one facing the mountains. It is fully screened, to allow you to feel the trade winds. We have completely outfitted Hale o Lei so that you will feel like you are coming home to paradise every day!

It is about 100 feet from the kayak launching pier, a short walk to Manini or Keei Beach, a one mile kayak paddle to the Captain Cook Monument, a short drive to Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (the Place of Refuge), and right at some of the best snorkeling and spinner dolphin watching in Hawaii. We live on the Big Island, and are eager to help in any way to make this your best vacation experience ever!

For a full Big Island experience, combine your visit with Hale Ehu Kai, our accessible oceanfront house on the other side of the Island!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Aloha! We relocated to Hawaii about 16 years ago, after retiring from lives as cattle ranchers, teacher, consultant, and human resources manager. We had visited all of the Hawaiian Islands and other tropical areas around the world, and chose the Big Island as our home. In this phase of our lives, we love to share our adopted home with others and have established two spectacular vacation rentals on both sides of the Big Island to allow this.

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook, HI, USA:
Kealakekua Bay has probably the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii! The dolphins and other sea life share this unique place with us and our guests. Hale o Lei allows us to affordably share Kealakekua Bay with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You have the enviable choices of just staying in the area and enjoying one of the most beautiful, relaxing places in the world, OR using Hale o Lei as a comfortable base to explore one of the most dynamic islands in the world.
