About Barbara Bell
In this picture we are checking out the lava flow. We have lived in East Hawai`i for 40 years now (time flies when you're having fun?) so we obviously love Hawai`i. Jack is a 3rd generation Hardwood Flooring Contractor, newly retired, and Barbara is a jaquette of all trades, most recently working for the County of Hawai`i.
Barbara Bell purchased this House in 1998
Why Barbara Bell chose Keaau
East Hawaii is varied, and exciting; the volcano never ceases to inspire and thrill. Madame Pele gives her unique energy to the whole of East Hawaii, and especially the Puna District. We have lived in East Hawaii for so long, and this house was our home, until we moved to the Big City of Hilo. Jack built this home in 1998, after living a few blocks away for about 15 years. We seem to always be cleaning, upgrading, or doing maintenance on something. The house is definitely in good order.
What makes this House unique
Because our home is almost at the end of a quiet dead-end street, it is very restful and private. We like to find new spots, via bicycle, or hiking boots, or swimming fins. There are so many incredible places to explore and we never get tired of adventuring. We like to walk or bike the coastline--for miles. To the south, we go to some tidepools about 1 1/2 miles away. To the north, we bike, then hike the last bit to a white sand beach that's about 5 miles away. When we are here, if we're not doing maintenance stuff, we also spend many hours lounging back and forth between the hot tub, the solar heated pool, and lazing around on the deck. It's so private and quiet--we love it.

Paradise in Hawaii
This house was a real find. Perfectly located ocean front with waves crashing off the lava rock right in front of the pool. The outdoor space was a delight with a hot tub, pool and upper and lower decks to view the pacific and surrounding coastline. The house itself has a traditional Hawai in feel with lots of wood including beautiful wood floors. It was a great launching point to see the entire east side of the island. About 20 -25 minutes north to Hilo and about 10 minutes from smaller towns to the south.
This was a very beautiful property! From the moment we stepped into our Hawaiian house we were in Awe. If your looking for a place that gives you the true feel of Hawaii this is it! Loved all the special touches of Hawaiian art. Very relaxing, and no words to describe the crashing of the ocean! Jack the owner was only a phone call away and very responsive to our needs. Truly a gem!🌴�🤟�
Beautiful property, view inside and outside was spectacular! We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for letting us share your property and all the live it holds. Blessings Mahalo 😀🍍🌋🏝🐳☀️ PS we had wonderful weather and saw the whales breaching right out the front.
Great place! Wish we’d stayed longer
We really enjoyed the privacy and proximity to the shore of this property. We especially liked the pool, hot tub and deck. The property is in a nice neighborhood and a great area for walking and exploring a local shoreline park. The kitchen was well equipped but the outdoor grill was somewhat marginal and could use an upgrade but we used it every evening and succeeded in getting our dinner cooked We especially loved listening to the crashing waves at night to lull us to sleep. The koqui frogs were a bit loud but added to the tropical ambiance. We had a great time here!
Wonderful ocean home
As some other people have said, even though the pictures show how great this place is, in reality it’s even better. We spent a wonderful 5 nights here. The first morning, having coffee outside, with whales and dolphins swimming right by, we knew we’d made the right decision!
The property was clean, beds comfortable and kitchen well-equipped.
A great base for exploring this side of the island.
All the relaxing or adventurous activities you can dream of, Volcano viewing, warm pond soaking, sea-life viewing/hearing and every once in a while smelling, Especially wonderful for mind-clearing, adventuring, bike riding, walking, and a close-by great Sunday Farmer's Market -- Maku`u Market.
