About the Property
Your Home Away From Home on Big Island's Sunny Puna Peninsula
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.

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.

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.
