Two separate ocean front master suites each with their own private bath offer spectacular ocean views and lanai access for up to two couples. Both master bedrooms have new "Tempur-pedic" breeze cool gel-style mattresses for your comfort during your stay. A spacious family room right on the ocean with a fold-out futon offers ocean views and lanai access with an adjoining full bathroom which is shared by the 3rd bedroom that sleeps 2 and offers garden views and ocean views through the living area. A large kitchen with new modern appliances and a full laundry room provide all the conveniences of home right on your own oceanfront oasis. 300mbps WIFI Internet access, 300 channels HD TV, Hi-def movies, and house phone with unlimited United States calling are all included with your stay.
One of the best features of oceanfront living is oceanfront sleeping accommodations, listening to the sound of the waves and waking to spectacular sunrises in the mornings. Not all oceanfront vacation homes have an oceanfront bedroom. But Pali Hale has two oceanfront master bedrooms plus an oceanfront family room with sleeping accommodations. Because Pali Hale uniquely offers multiple oceanfront sleeping accommodations, it is ideal for families, couples, multi-couple, and corporate getaways. Everyone can enjoy the views!
The new volcanic eruption that started in April and continues today is a beautiful and destructive event that is reshaping a small part of the island in the far south tip of lower Puna. The lava glow can be safely witnessed from a distance and safely viewed evenings from Pali Hale's main lanai looking south across the bay. This event is not posing health risks or safety threats to Pali Hale or to travelers. Air quality at Pali Hale and the east Island has remained clean, safe and healthy, and better than most of the mainland USA. The small affected part of the Island with safety concerns are roadblocked and people are not allowed in. 90% of the Big Island's beautiful beaches, activities, trails, and parks remain open. If you have any questions at all about the Island or the volcanic event of the past month feel free to reach out by voice or text.
You may see and hear whales in front of the house during whale season from November thru May. We have a rare Nene pair who typically fly in and stroll around the yard each day. We have geckos who love to come out and sun and Coqui rainforest tree frogs who love to sing at night providing the perfect tropical backdrop against the sound of crashing waves.
Pali Hale is our treasured 2nd home in paradise and we are excited to share it with you and hope it makes your stay on the Big Island extra special. Bo and I are available by phone, text, and email for questions, island advice, and help. Our caretaker lives close by and is also available for hire to help you book activities or tour the island.
We also provide you with a guide with our personal recommendations to island activities and local dining and shopping. You don't have to worry about finding a good place to eat :)
