Hakalau House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Aloha and welcome to Hawaii Paradise by the Sea on the incredible Hamakua coast in historic Hakalau. This is a two bedroom, two bath plantation style home. Your back lanai offers beautiful views of the ocean, incredible sunrises, passing ships and whale watching. You can enjoy all this while relaxing over a refreshing tropical drink at your outside dining table or grilling tonight's dinner. While at home have some friendly competition at the foosball table (table soccer). Take a 5 minute stroll to the cliff's edge or down to Hakalau Bay for a refreshing swim or body boarding.

The locals refer to this part of the island as God's country and it won't be long before you see why. We are minutes away from Umauma Falls, botanical gardens, the grand 442 foot Akaka Falls, Kolekole Beach Park (a nice place to picnic), 2 Zip lines and the small town of Honomu with it's quaint shops and the best shave ice around. Honolii, one of the best surf spots on the island is only 10 minutes away. The historic town of Hilo is 5 minutes further with a farmers market, Tsunami Museum, Rainbow Falls, Liliuokalani Japanese style garden, Banyan Drive, Coconut Island and downtown shopping and dining. Another 30 to 45 minutes South will bring you to Kilauea Caldera-the world's most active volcano, the hot ponds and tidal pools to snorkel in. A 30 minute drive North of the house brings you to breathtaking Waipio Valley, Parker Ranch and golf courses.

The spacious retreat comes with everything you need to enjoy making your special meals or smoothies in this beautiful kitchen with granite countertops. You will find everything you need to make your vacation complete even your own washer and dryer. This home is handicap accessible. Sorry no pets or indoor smoking.

This is a separate rental unit adjoined to our home where you will have complete privacy with your own private entrance and phone number. So come relax, enjoy, and experience Hawaii Paradise By The Sea.

Bob and I moved from New Jersey at the same time as our home was completed in 2008. After vacationing on the Big Island for many years and never wanting to leave our dream finally came true. We are in awe of the beauty that surrounds us with the ocean view, mountains and beautiful flowers, this is an amazing island and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Sandy and Bob purchased this house in 2008

This property offers a wonderful ocean view for watching the ships, whales or just day dreaming while sipping lemonade. It's walking distance to Hakalau Bay to watch the surf, boogie board, have a picnic or see an occasional monk seal.

AMAZING STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four absolutely loved the beautiful stay we had here. With hosts who were hospitable but unobtrusive, the wrap around porch with a peaceful view of the ocean, the stocked essentials, and the overall restful feel, I would strongly encourage others to stay at Hawaii Paradise by the Sea. Also, be sure to follow "Sandy's Tips" that will guide you to amazing locations such as a black sand bay very near their house and amazing tidepools off the beaten path. In the words of our 21 year old, "We should have stayed here a lot longer!" Mahalo, Bob & Sandy!

Owner's Response: We laughed at your son's response as we always said the same thing when we visited the island. So we're glad you found paradise here to be restful and peaceful but just a short walk to the bay for a swim. Happy to see that Sandy's tips came in handy especially finding those tide pools which are loaded with fish. Maybe we'll get to see you again and you'll be able to stay longer. aloha and mahalo

WONDERFUL

  • 4 of 5
My daughter & I came to the big island as part of our healing process. My son, her brother, died this past February at the age of 14-1/2 and we wanted to scatter some of his ashes in Hawaii.

Sandy was compassionate and Bob, although I had less contact with him, was kind on the phone. They were professional and the house was clean and well-kept.

I suppose the reason I didn't give 5 stars would be the location. The little road it's on is conveniently right off the highway, and surprisingly the traffic noise didn't bother us once we got used to it. The property is centrally situated on the Hamakua coast, thus the location is perfect for traveling up the coast & down to Hilo. But we didn't care for the road itself nor the beach that was at the end of it. As a runner, I had to cross the highway to find a good running route. The view from the lanai & dining area was beautiful, but I thought the house was actually right on the beach, i.e., easy enough to walk down to so as to have my morning coffee & watch the sunrise or an evening cup of tea there.

Overall, I was satisfied. I suggest you rent a car because you'll need one to get to & from Hilo for groceries. The driveway, although quite steep, is actually easier to maneuver that it looks. I loved seeing so many heart-shaped rocks - I took them as signs from my recently deceased son. Again, Sandy's compassion was very comforting.

Mahalo to Sandy & Bob. I hope we can stay with you again someday.

Owner's Response: We're glad you were able to find some comfort and heart stones to remember your son. We know this was a hard journey for you. We are out in the country so we don't have running paths but lots of country roads with beautiful scenery to enjoy along the way even if you don't cross over the pedestrian over-pass bridge of the 2 lane road. The road that takes you down to the bay or through the area are also nice. We're sorry you thought we were on the ocean but the pictures show that we are not but sit up high which is great for the best ocean view, especially to watch the sunrise from your lanai.

GIRLS HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Sandy and Bob, we cannot say enough about your property and hospitality.

Thanks for the banana bread and fresh pineapple on our arrival and the welcome from Bob as we got to the accommodation so late.

We could not have wanted for more and had a full day when we first arrived to recovered from an International Flight and a hectic schedule in Oahu. My birthday spent on your Lanai was a restful day where we caught up on sleep and took in the peace and quiet.

Yes the frogs were around but the noise was not intrusive.

We watched the sun come up and down from a strategic spot on your lanai and made good use of the BBQ.

Thanks for your help with ideas of things to see and do. We managed to fit in a Twilight Volcano visit along with a circle tour and the Hidden offerings of the Puna district.

The property was clean and very well maintained. There were many condiments already at the accommodation we did not need much more.

It was nice of Sandy to call and check we had everything we needed. Only sorry we did not get a chance to meet you directly but we caught a brief viewing of you as you did your gardening.

We were happy to eat at the property and enjoy everything available on site while we toured around most of the day hours.

We would happily return to both your property as a central point and also the Big Island.

A car would be handy or a local tour that picks you up from site.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you two ladies enjoyed your stay especially since you came all the way from 'Down Under'. What a great way to celebrate your birthday on the lanai watching the sunrise and eating our pineapple. Maybe on your return visit some day we'll have some bananas ready to pick. Mahalo nui loa

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for staying here with your family. It must have been great to show them the sights and for you not to have to work on this trip. We're sure you were worn out trying to see so much. You are always welcome to come back to see even more as we would enjoy seeing you again. Aloha

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Great hosts! The property was incredibly clean, decorated wonderfully, and had beautiful view of ocean. Located close to Hilo so it was very easy to purchase groceries and grill for family meals. 2 bathrooms was definite plus for our group of 5. If you are looking for a beautiful place to hang out at night, watch water at night, and RELAX this is your rental. Thanks!

MORE THAN JUST A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our one month stay at Hawaii Paradise by the Sea was everything that its title suggests. It was a once in a lifetime experience. The facilities were spacious, clean, and well maintained, including a wonderful lanai with a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. But what really made the experience exceptional was our gracious and attentive hosts. They greeted us with fresh flowers and fruit from their beautiful yard (as well as delicious home made banana bread!) offered innumerable suggestions of places to visit and restaurants to try, and even provided discount tickets to many of the local attractions. Since their facilities are essentially a duplex they were always close by if we had any questions or concerns, but they were rigorously respectful of our privacy. We could not have asked for a more ideal relationship, nor wished for a more idyllic location to use as our home base as we explored The Big Island.

Owner's Response: We're so glad that we got to spend some time together with such a delightful couple during your month stay. Hearing about your travels to Europe was quite interesting and funny at times. One of the highlights was learning about the Pillsbury Doughboy, we're still laughing about that. Mahalo for sharing your fabulous photos with us. a hui hou
