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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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.

QUIET WEEK ON THE BAY.

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully built, very clean, fully screened and secure downstairs studio. Grounds were well kept and private to sit outside in the shade of the large wrap-around deck up and roof overhang. Very tastefully decorated inside and out. We never used the indoor shower, as the outdoor shower was so pleasant to use. Bed was very comfortable and we felt completely secure to leave all the doors open(screens only).
The walk to the park/beach/bay was less than 5 minutes and the snorkeling was fantastic. Swimming with the spinner dolphins in the bay was an unforgettable experience. Very great place to relax!

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a week at this beautifully appointed downstairs studio. The accommodation was excellent and spotlessly clean. Dennis was very attentive when we had troubles with the WiFi and kept on top of the problem until it was fixed. The location on the island is ideal for outings but I have to say that Kealakekua Bay is probably one of the most charming spots on the island.

OUR OWN LITTLE PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Hale Lana was perfect--we have stayed in many vacation rentals on the islands and all over the country and this is the cleanest, most tastefully decorated rental of them all. It is peaceful, quiet, and relaxing and yet very close to superb snorkeling, shopping, restaurants, and other activities. The provision of beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, ice chest, and beach mats was terrific. Some of the best snorkeling on the island is very nearby at Two Step and Captain Cook as well as the night snorkeling adventure with the giant mantas ,which is a must!! The gorgeous outdoor shower is an added bonus that is very enjoyable and the use of the washer and dryer and clothesline was wonderful. Dennis is very personable and professional to communicate with and makes the rental process very efficient and easy. You cannot go wrong with this little gem in the Hawaiian paradise!!

TWO HAPPY CAMPERS

  • 5 of 5
my friend and i visited from maui. she got the bed and i got
the air mattress. we were sooooooo happy with our home
away from home. clean, light, beautiful. walk 3 minutes to
the bay, swim with the dolphins and then home for a huge
brunch every day. only ate out two meals. and just down
the road is another fantastic dolphin spot, "two step". we
loved the out door shower. would definitely stay here again.
actually thought it would be fun to rent both upstairs and
downstairs. mahalo again...rupa and nirupam

REPEAT HAWAII VACATIONERS

  • 5 of 5
Arrived after dark in a rain storm and didn't fully appreciate the beauty of this place until the next morning. Woke up in absolute paradise. Very quiet and tranquil. Great place to unwind and relax. Perfect for 2 people. The studio is very well appointed and the colors used in the unit are perfect for the surroundings. Kealakekua Bay is crystal clear for snorkling and the highlight of our trip was swimming with spinner dolphins. They "played" with us for over an hour. Hale Lana is remote enough for complete tranquility, but within a reasonable driving range for groceries, restaurants and sightseeing. We can't wait to return. Mahalo for making this the perfect vacation.

AMAZING PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This was a PERFECT place to stay, situated in a quiet neighborhood steps from Kealakekua Bay, Mannin Beach and Ke'ei Beach. A few minutes by car to Place of Refuge as well. The studio is beautifuly designed and executed. It truly feels like a sacred space. Beautiful and private gardens surround it. I could have stayed forever. Highly recommend this location fr your vacation rental. We plan on returning again and again ourselves!

Notes:
Grocery stores, shopping and numerous restaurants are a 15 minute drive away. There are many areas to explore on foot such as the old Nap'opo'o Wharf and beach park. Historic Place of refuge national Park (featuring Hawaiian cultural displays and temple dating from the 1500's) is three miles south and also features excellent snorkeling. Keei, a crescent white sand and palm tree shaded surfing beach, home to many turtles, is a short drive or walk away. Kayak rental and easy launch (with all you need) is one block away. Hale Lana is conveniently located between 'downtown' Kailua Kona (for extensive shopping, dining, movie theaters, boat harbor, deep sea fishing and night life) and the wondrous Volcanoes National Park and green and black sand beaches to the south. This makes it an ideal 'home base'. Relax on any of the numerous secluded nearby beaches or get on the road for easy or short day trips and explore all the the Big Island has to offer!
