Property description

Come to Kalapana Seaview Estates for our Volcanic Vacation Special - luxuriate in our romantic artist's cottage surrounded by tropical foliage on the sunny Puna Peninsula south of Hilo!

This coastal cottage allows close proximity for seeing the fireworks created by the new lava flowing into the ocean by boat, hiking or, taking a helicopter ride. From our convenient location you can tour Volcanoes Ntl Park, luxuriate in nearby natural geothermal hot ponds, snorkel in lava rock tidepools, or dive into the waves to swim with wild dolphins or whale watch at spectacular Kehena black sand beach.

Yet, Hale Haumea cottage offers a private retreat, surrounded by tropical greenery on all sides with no other houses in view.

Hale Haumea is a comfortable one-bedroom, all designed with artistic flair, fully tiled throughout the house as well as on the screened-in lanai. There is a comfy Queen-sized bed and AC in the private bedroom, a futon couch/bed in the LR, and a full kitchen with new appliances. Stay cool with ceiling fans throughout the house and on the lanai. This is one of few rentals in the area to offer AC plus a private washer and dryer. We also provide Satellite TV with all premium movie channels, and Satellite WiFi.

Enjoy a Hawaiian Lomi or aqua massage at neighboring Kalani Oceanside Resort which also offers an Olympic swimming pool, sauna, yoga, Pilates and other rejuvenating practices (call for day use passes).

Dine at Kalani's buffet restaurant or Aloha roadside cafe, or in one of the variety of ethnic restaurants and health food bars in Pahoa Town, just 13 miles away. Or purchase from a wide variety of prepared food and stay for the local luau on Wednesday evenings at Uncle Robert's Awa Bar nearby. You can also purchase locally grown organic veggies there on Wed eve or Saturday morning at their Farmer's Market to cook a tropical feast in our fully-equipped kitchen to eat on the comfortable screened-in lanai.

In Hilo Town, enjoy the fine restaurants, entertainment, cultural events and shopping opportunities afforded by this 2nd largest city in the Hawaiian islands. Just north of Hilo, explore mystical rainforests to view magical waterfalls and the breathtaking Botanical Gardens.

There is truly something for everyone here in our slice of Paradise - come enjoy it with us.

The SeaView cottage is called 'Hale Haumea,' for the Earth Mother, Hawaiian Goddess Haumea, who protects the new land created by her daughter, Pele. She is associated with fertility and creativity. This cottage was built by an artist as her retreat and studio and we hope that the beauty and awesome nature surrounding it inspires you as well.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: A writer and wannabe mermaid, I love this area for its soothing warm ponds and back-to-nature feel, not available in the more touristy parts of the islands.

Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
Hale Haumea is a perfect vacation rental for those looking for a romantic getaway - you're near to everything, yet secluded, nestled in greenery on all sides of your home away from home. There is a complete kitchen with all necessary appliances, etc., to make fabulous meals at the cottage and dine on the screened-in lanai and watch the sky change with the sunrise and sunset. Enjoy the breeze and flow of ceiling fans in all rooms, AC in the bedroom, and satellite WiFi and TV with all the premium channels for your enjoyment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to unique volcanic features of the Big Island - the new lava flow entering the ocean, Kehena black sand beach, geothermal hot ponds, lava rock tidepools for snorkeling, and Volcanoes Ntl Park, plus local Farmer's Markets and luau at Uncle Robert's just 5 miles away. Hilo, Hawaii's 2nd largest city, with everything from fine restaurants to numerous waterfalls and parks, is 38 miles away.
