About Laura Roden

Lifetime beach lovers!

Hawaii General Excise and Transient Accommodation ID# W30402852-01

Laura Roden purchased this house in 2003

Why Laura Roden chose Keaau

Gorgeous Hawaii oceanfront property surrounded by incredible natural beauty yet close to all modern conveniences and a great spot to base Big Island adventures.

What makes this house unique

Watching crashing surf salt spray, breaching whales and leaping dolphins, and the sun rising over the Pacific ocean, all from the master bedroom's king sized platform bed - or while having coffee on the private lanai - or from the hot tub - or from the living room - views everywhere! Accompanied by the soundtrack of ocean, birds, frogs, and nothing more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a gem of a house. If you want a vacation where you get away from it all but still be fairly close to the major sights, then this is the place for you. While there, we went zip lining, took an open doors helicopter tour of the volcano, drove up to the observatory, and visited numerous places suggested in the book the owners have made. The small town close by has four or five great restaurants to choose from. There is nothing quite like falling asleep to the sounds of the waves or coming “home” and having a swim and jacuzzi. I’ve even video taped the waves so that I can imagine myself back there on those stressful real life days! The owners have really thought of everything to make your stay hassle free and were a pleasure to communicate and deal with. I'm saving to get back there as soon as I can!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
The location is second to none. The "relax" factor is high. The house is even better than the pictures, trust me. If you are looking to get away and feel removed from the world, while hearing and watching the ocean waves crashing 30 yards away all day long, then this house is perfect for you. I can't wait to return.

Top oceanfront property in Puna District. Beautiful, comfortable and well-appointed home. Kitchen well-equipped with very nice countertops and cabinetry. Luscious landscaping and stand-out pool. Upstairs master suite could be out of a magazine and very cozy and private. Expansive ocean horizon.

Ocean Spray while you Play at Hale Mar

  • 4 of 5
I highly recommend the property if you are looking for something peaceful and off the beaten path. Every time I visit this area I am strongly reminded of nature's raw power and immense beauty. The brilliant contrast of black lava meeting blue ocean at this property is a must see. I came here exhausted and fast tracked to some inner peace with healthy activity and left recharged.
Property: Literally ocean front, this property was a great location for our party of 7 when we attended a wedding in the area. The best night time lullaby ever was the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks. Sitting on the lava rocks and feeling the ocean spray on my skin quickly brings the word nirvana to mind. Watching my tired mate rejuvenate on the lava rocks with a fishing line in the ocean felt right. The (fenced w/ gate on ocean side) lap pool and hot-tub were very clean and came with pool toys and comfortable outdoor seating. Just missing a nice big gas grill.
House: The upstairs master is gorgeous, romantic and the ocean views breathtaking. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms not so much. Third bedroom is more a nook or alcove and though it says sleeps 7 - that is a stretch - comfortably - 5. Kitchen is fully functional and nice enough but not gourmet. That said, there are way more pros. Well laid out for entertaining - both the outdoor and indoor living space flows well and accommodated easily an evening gathering for wedding party and guests.
Nearby things to do: One must-see weekly farmer's market brimming with local food and wares is a short drive away. (You do have a longer drive for other conveniences such as grocers and restaurants; which is expected to feel truly away from it all. ) It's a great location if you want to tour the volcano, ocean front lava flows, tidal pools in the Kapoho/Vacationland area and the spectacular "Red Road" and (clothing optional) Kehena Beach community. Pahoa Town is where paniolo Hawaiian meets haole hippy/rastafarian. We always take home a piece of this paradise with exceptional local talent Pat Leo's exquisite paintings. A life-time Kapoho resident, she captures - better than anyone - the essence of this place. It's easy to carve out a truly unique travel experience here more akin to travel abroad without leaving the country. This is the place if you like local authenticity over air conditioned resort environments.

Perfect location for a family trip

  • 5 of 5
Hale Mar really exceeded our expectations, beautiful grounds and views, comfortable and attractive furnishings, all at a very reasonable W price. We were there with an adult son, his wife and two little boys and also our adult daughter. The accommodations were perfect for us. The master bedroom was huge and beautiful (and a perfect place to watch the sunrise), the queen bedroom was great, the twin bedroom was small but adequate and the airbed in the office was fine for the youngsters. The common living area was spacious and inviting. Everyone enjoyed the lap pool and hot tub and if the boys wanted to run around, there was the enclosed grassy front yard. This was probably the best equipped house we'd ever rented. We appreciated that condiments had been left in the cupboards and fridge, so we did not have buy mustard, catsup etc. (But there's no guarantee what future folks will find.) There even were hand weights, which actually got used! One glitch -- a blender that did not work -- was quickly resolved. We grilled two nights (charcoal grill, a $10 bag of MatchLite was sufficient) and found it easy to do so. We had wanted to spend a few days on the Hilo side so we would not have long drives to the sites there. We were prepared for rain and we got some, but certainly not enough to spoil anything we wanted to do. Hale Mar certainly rates a return trip, and we recommend it highly!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
This home is amazing. Views are endless. The sound of the waves crashing on the lava could be felt laying in bed. This home has everything you could need for a very relaxing stay. Loved being way out of town with the beauty of nature. I would recommend to anyone who want to be away from it all. Deposit was returned quickly. The pool people came out and took care of the green hot tub in a timely manner. Thanks

Beatiful home, Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5
Location, location, location. This home is on a quiet street and oceanfront. The grounds are manicured and beautiful. The road that this home sits on is not paved, but don't worry, there were no issues. Our family and friends loved the place. It rained late in the evening and very early morning. But we had no issues with the weather. don't be scared of the Hilo side. We loved it so much, we are looking to buy in the area. Very low key and relaxing. The only slight issue was that when you leave for the day and close the house up, including all windows due to possible rain, the house was hot and humid when you first enter. But open the windows and turn on a fan or two and its beautiful. Thanks Hale Mar for a great location. Loved the place.
