PICTURESQUE AND PRIVATE ON THE BIG ISLAND

Naalehu House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7 adults, 2 children) 2 night minimum

A two story home located on seven acres of pasture land surrounded by Norfolk Pines, peace and privacy.

This fully furnished home has 3 queen size beds and 1 full size bed. All amenities are taken care of including linens, fully stocked kitchen, basic cable TV, vcr, cd players and telephone.

Located on the edge of the town of Na'alehu it is only a five minute drive to the town center for groceries, banking, fuel, a library, post office, and at least two homestyle cafes. In the center of town is the Punalu'u Bakery revered throughout the Island for its sweet Hawaiian bread and assortment of malasadas (Portugese doughnuts), all baked fresh daily.

Na'alehu is midway between Kona and Hilo, at the southern tip of the Big Island of Hawaii. You can drive to either side of the Island, Kona on the West or Hilo on the East, at a relaxing and leisurely pace, enjoy the many unique little towns, beaches, shops, museums and art galleries along the way to either side and still have plenty of time to return home for dinner on the 3 lanais at sun set.

Black Sands Beach and Golf Course is within 15 minutes by car and Volcano Village and Volcano National Park are only 35 minutes away. Volcano Village has become a center for local artists with many opportunities to see their work in shops, studios, gallerys, etc.

A unique Island experience on your own 7 acres of privacy. An opportunity to live amongst the local people, shop at the Farmer's Market every Wednesday and Saturday, hike, golf, go to the beaches or just sit on your lanai and soak in the peacefulness.

We were safe, comfortable and happy! Our stay was filled with memories for a lifetime. If you are into country living and want to get away from it all, we highly recommend this property. The owners and the care taker Shirley were wonderful people.

This visit for us was to relearn the island,renew our spirits,and answer a slew of questions from our hearts and our heads. Have to say nothing disappointed. The house and the grounds were lovely.It was comfortable and met all of our expectations.We arrived in late evening and immediately felt at home.The views were awesome,and the silence,the birds and the scent of flowers will remain with us.The caregiver who made us welcome also responded to our every query,was gracious and friendly.Thank you Shirley for all your help and your Aloha smile. We Will plan to return as often as we can and bring additional friends and family.

WONDERFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here and loved it. It is lovely and peaceful. The gardens have matured since the photos so it's even prettier and there are lots of fruit trees including lilikoi, fig, papaya, avocado, orange, etc. The sunrises from the lanai were beautiful (we're from the US east coast so getting up early was easy). The house is well stocked with non-perishables like condiments, rice, cooking oils, etc. so no need to buy those. You'll need to buy perishables like milk, cereal, veggies and meats. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking/eating utensils. Local restaurants: Shaka, Hana Hou and Punaluu Bakery were not fancy but very good. Farmer's market in Naalehu on Wed and Sat was bigger than I thought with very friendly folks. Shirley, the neighbor/caretaker is very friendly but not intrusive. Owners were easy to work with when making arrangements and communicated promptly.
There is much to do on the Big Island, more than you can do in a week, for sure. Naalehu is not in a resort area so if that is your thing, you will have to drive a bit. But for those wanting peace and quiet and a more rural setting, it is perfect. You will need a car but many sites and activities are an hour or less from this location. Very close by are the Puunaluu black sand beach (we saw 4 seaturtles), green sand beach, South Point. A little farther is Volcano Nat'l Park, well worth the trip. Beyond that Kailua-Kona and Hilo. Even farther is Mauna Kea but also well worth the trip. We definitely recommend this home and will plan on returning. Aloha!

BEAUTIFUL, QUIET, SPACIOUS AND CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 absolutely loved this place. The landscaping has grown in beautifully since the exterior photo was taken, so it looks even better in real life. We come from a small town on the Big Island, too, so we enjoyed visiting Naalehu and meals at Hana Hou.

We have recommended it to our friends and family, and hope to visit again!

CHARMING SPOT, FRESH FRUIT, GREAT VIEWS.

  • 4 of 5
The house was brilliant. The location was convenient and gave us access to nearly everything we wanted to get from a Hawaiian big-island vacation.

While staying at this lovely and well appointed home in Naalehu, we enjoyed lovely views of the ocean, rolling foothills and awe-inspiring night skies. The house itself was surrounded by a wide variety of fruit trees, from oranges to avocados, mangoes to jackfruit, all of which were available and delicious.

The house was a split in distance between the main entrance of Volcanoes National Park and Kona, so the sights through the area were easy to access and helped to minimize driving. We didn't make it to the north coast but we certainly didn't run out of activities in and around the south and eastern coasts of the isle. If you're up for a hike don't miss Mauna Loa road which, if you follow to the end will bring you to the trailhead of a hike to the summit and caldera of the 13000+ft volcano and provide a cloud level view of the island. (even without the hike) Certainly it makes a quick drive home after a view of Kilauea's night-time glory.

You should check before you go; some supplies that every visitor must buy on their way in (sugar, flour and oil) are in good supply... so maybe no need for more :)

The Pun'u'lau bakery was great, and their mac-nut sweet bread was delicious as a grilled sandwich or just on it's own.

The only issue of note was the local roosters, who worked well with our jet-lag to get us up and out in time to enjoy the sights of the island, and, once we were accustomed to their... "enthusiasm" proved no impediment to a few days of sleeping in. As a bonus, they're great for exercising the little ones (betcha' can't catch 'em all!)

This property is located away from the typical tourist areas. One town over is Ocean View and several interesting shops. Green Sands Beach at the end of South Point Road is very pretty but very primitive and a long walk in. Black Sands Beach has all facilities. Guests love the hikes offered in or near Volcano National Park. The Fern Grotto and the Lava Tube are 2 of my favorite features of the Park.
