Overview

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 WILL BE BACK!!!

  • 5 of 5

this house and property was AMAZING! We were so happy with everything, from the gorgeous views to the great spaces, large kitchen and spacious bedrooms and everything you would need. Loved how private it is and Shirley was so friendly and helpful. We and our wedding party stay with us there and had our wedding at Whittington Beach, and a reception on the property. It was breathtaking. If I could live there, I totally would!! It was so peaceful waking up to the sunrise with some fresh 100% Kona coffee and the beautiful flowers and trees. I had the best orange I've ever had on an orange tree there. I could just go on and on! We really loved that each bedroom had a lanai (deck) and lots of seating on each one, all with breathtaking views. All of us fell in love with the rental. Don't hesitate, rent it, you won't be disappointed!

Very good stay - a few improvements recommended

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week here in March, and enjoyed the beautiful, lush yard and the house itself. Beds are really comfortable and there are two stand-alone showers and one bathtub-shower upstairs with a great view from the window. The house was really clean when we arrived but someone came to fix one of the faulty smoke detectors during our stay and dragged dirt and leaves throughout the house with their shoes. There is a gate closing off the entrance to the property from the street, and although we would close it each morning upon leaving the house, we would usually find it open upon our return later in the day (don't know what's up with that - it was also open when we arrived, contrary to instructions received from the owner).

The house is not in Naalehu proper but in Waiohinu, a couple of miles past Naalehu when coming from Kona. It is a very quiet area of the Big Island and a good base for exploring South Point and Green Sand Beach. I recommend heading to Gilligan's (a 5-minute drive away) on a Friday or Saturday for a taste of the local life here, with pizza and live music among cheerful locals.

On the downside, there are a lot of OLD things in the house that would gain from being replaced. A perfect example is the blankets: too small for the beds and definitely past their prime. The TVs in the house are ancient and cumbersome to operate, with no instructions provided for the guests, and the Wi-Fi network is not secured. Also, although the kitchen is well equipped, we found the fridge door loaded with way too much leftover food from previous guests upon arrival: two jars of mayonnaise, two bottles of sweet chili sauce, two jars of blackberry jam, FOUR jars of peanut butter, and on and on. Someone needs to tidy up that fridge!

Finally, although Denise, the owner, was really kind, communication was difficult as she did not seem to receive most of my emails and did not return my phone call when I tried to reach her a few days before my scheduled arrival date.

Unexpected visitor

  • 3 of 5

Very lovely place, plenty of room and the owners were very cordial. We had a problem with a rat eating our bread and later realized he was getting in through a hole he had made in the in the upstairs screen. We were serenaded nightly by barking dogs and crowing roosters which made it difficult to keep the doors and windows open.

Family of five

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five arrived very tired and were overjoyed to find a house clean and welcoming to us. The grounds were beautiful, lots of trees and flowers. Everything we needed except perishables was provided. The owner contacted us before we went there and was very friendly and helpful. Shirley, the caretaker, had everything ready for us, what a fun person. We would love to vacation there again.

THANKS!

  • 4 of 5

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 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.
