Enjoy a private separate first floor studio/great room with mountain and garden views at Hale Lana at Kealakekua Bay. Ideal for couples or honeymooners. Just the length of a football field to enter the crystal clear water for the very best snorkeling and dolphin refuge in the islands. The pristine Bay is a protected marine preserve and underwater park providing numerous water activities. Water temperatures range consistently from 75 (in Feb) to 82 (in late summer).
Hale Lana is removed from noise and traffic and is fully fenced and gated for added privacy and has a private parking space. A new superbly crafted tropical and luxurious pole and beam design showcasing natural woods, Italian tile, new tropical furnishings and large indoor and outdoor showers. The ceiling fans and louvered transoms efficiently allow the balmy breezes and scents of the Bay and surrounding plumeria trees to float through.
There are ample patio lanias to relax in sun or shade while taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean and surrounding mountains.
Located in the heart of Kona coffee country with nearby ranches and rodeo grounds and coffee and macadamia nut farms and mills as well as country stores and fruit stands. Post office is also close by. As well as historic old 'Painted Church', Hawaiian Ethnobotanical Garden and a wonderful ornate Buddhist Temple open to the public.

The Hale Lana studio is thoughtfully designed and meticulously executed to be inviting, comfortable and delightfully simple. The slate floors are surprisingly easy on the feet. The color scheme is restful and well coordinated. The wicker furniture is of very high quality and comfort. The ceiling fans make for comfortable sleeping and are essentially noiseless and in perfect balance. Not that common as we learned elsewhere on this trip. The airiness of the sliding glass doors makes the indoors nearly outdoors. You have supplied very high quality cooking pots and various utensils quite above the norm for rentals we have seen. The location is SO quiet, perfect for those of us who are not seeking the fast lane on our Hawaii trip. The laundry equipment works easily and well and we appreciated the supplying of laundry soap.
We stayed at a much different facility in Hilo and cut that side of the trip short to return to the comfort and simple elegance of Hale Lana. Memorable INDEED. And we had GREAT snorkeling right at the Bay and at nearby Two Step. If we return to the Big Island, we will consider Hale Lana again. Mahalo for providing such a wonderful place to stay and such a friendly yet business-like interface.
