BIG ISLAND / SMALL PRICE / BEAUTIFUL OCEAN VIEWS ON 2 ACRES

Naalehu House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the 'House of Shimmering Water' - A two bedroom, two bathroom vacation rental located in Waiohinu (2 miles from Na'alehu) on the south-side of Hawaii's Big Island.

With the island's many diverse climates, the south-side offers some of the best weather and scenic beauty. Many of my guests have said that they feel like they are on top of the world when they arrive to the house.

It's truly the kind of paradise that you come to expect when visiting the Hawaiian Islands.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

The home has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths with an upstairs loft, patio (lanai), and covered parking on two private acres of grassland and tropical plants. The property's hillside location has breath-taking panoramic views of the ocean and valley below with some of the best weather on the island.

The interior has a natural wood decor with large sliding windows and is beautifully furnished with Asian/Zen-like furniture and artwork. Satellite t.v., a dvd movie and book collection, 'Netflix', wireless internet, a computer, clock/cd radios, and a cell phone for international travelers is provided.

Both bedrooms have a full-size (double-occupancy) bed with skylights in each room. The master bathroom has a stone tile interior with a shower/tub plus a large walk-in shower in the second bathroom. Linens, bath towels, and beach towels are provided.

The home is equipped with a full kitchen and a washer and dryer. There is also an outdoor BBQ and picnic area. The home supplies fresh county water (not water catchment) and has remote gate access. There are also several tame carribean sheep that can be seen grazing along the grassland.

LOCATION DESCRIPTION

Waiohinu translated into English is defined as 'shimmering water'. The town itself is a residential community located less than 5 minutes from Na'alehu in the Ka'u district of the Big Island which is approximately 1 hour from Kailua-Kona and 45 minutes from Hilo.

Local attractions include a nearby golf course, Big Island's only local winery, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach (Turtle Beach), Green Sands Beach (one of only two green sand beaches in the world), Volcano National Park, as well as several restaurants, galleries, and farmer's markets. The nearest beach is less than 10 minutes away and several hiking trails are walking-distance.

Also located a short distance away is South Point (the southern most point of the U.S.A), several natural hotsprings, Green Lake, and some great beaches for snorkeling and kayaking. Just one hour North of Hilo is Waipio Valley and the Hamakua Coast.

In 2005 my mother purchased her home on the Big Island of Hawaii which had been a dream of hers for many years. She was an active member of the Ka’u Preservation that continues to preserve one of the last remaining black sand beach-fronts on the Big Island and home to an amazing ecosystem of sea turtles and other marine life. I currently live in Northern California with my fiancee and our dog, Sake. We frequently visit the Big Island during our free time. Rex, our caretaker is a former resident of Oahu who now lives on the Big Island and has previously worked with the National Park Service. Our vacation home is licensed and accredited by the State of Hawaii and we are members of the Hawaii Visitors & Convention Bureau (HVCB).

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

It was our family's life-long dream to own a home in this beautiful and relaxing environment.

You really do feel like you're on top of the world when you arrive to the house. It's truly an amazing experience to be able to wake up in the morning, look out at the horizon, and see 180 degree views of the ocean and valley below. The nights are just as beautiful with millions of stars that light up the sky. The location of the house has easy access to many attractions while still providing lots of privacy and solitude.

Very comfortable home in peaceful setting with great views. Plentiful fruit on the trees was a big bonus. The house was very clean and also convenient to explore the south side of the island - must visit the southernmost bakery (a real treat). The hillside setting/views can't be beat. Aaron was very helpful and courteous. The sheep/goats were an added attraction. Great value for the money and would not hesitate to stay again if planning to visit the south side. Even though it rained every evening, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

MERVEILLEUX!!!

  • 5 of 5
Cette maison est tout simplement merveilleuse. Encore mieux que ce que l'on imaginait. Elle est situé au sud de l'ile, mais parfaite pour couvrir le bas de l'ile ( de Kona à Hilo). Elle est isolée donc - en pleine nature (des arbres fruitiers - banane, oranges,...) avec une vue splendide. Une maison avec un cachet unique.

THIS IS OUR FAVORITE HAWAIIAN HOUSE RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
This house is really spectacular! We have stayed there three years in a row now and are never disappointed. The thing we love so much is the privacy and the view. It is fenced in and on a mountain side looking far out at the ocean. You can also see cows and horses grazing on a hilltop, clouds rolling in and over the mountain, and your very own flock of sheep. There are oranges, bananas, avocados and we have even seen wild turkeys! It is a bit of a white knuckle ride up the mountain to get there, but totally doable with a four wheel drive.
Aaron works hard to meet your every need. He responds to emails and phone calls promptly. His property managers rock. Our kids love this place.
The interior is simple, clean and has plenty of windows to look out. The bathrooms are beautiful. Truly a one-of-a-kind getaway. If we had to complain about anything, we could use a bigger, more comfortable bed...but that is not enough to keep us away! We highly recommend this rental and are planning our return trip :-)
Thanks Aaron!

SECOND STAY AS CHARMING AS THE FIRST!

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough nice things about this lovely home on the hill above Waiohinu! First stayed here a couple of years ago, and we've had a magical return visit for the 2012-2013 holiday season. Super quiet off-the-grid home with a lovely floor plan and views overlooking the village and all the way out to sea. Private and secure with personalized security codes, awesome spacious bedrooms with skylights above the bed so you can star-gaze from the comfort of your pillow. Internet for email and television (if you must have those things during your vacation), and plenty of flowering plants around you, as well as guava, banana, passion fruit, lime and orange growing all around you. Huge windows for enjoying the hilltop views from all around the house - including a cupola atop the house with 360 degree views and accommodations for kids/teenagers.

Ka'u is a wild and remote part of Hawaii. We love it, but it is not for everyone. If you want lots of fancy restaurants and big-box shopping, this isn't it. But if you want to enjoy green sand and black sand beaches, hiking to ancient Hawaiian archaeological sites, days of hiking and sight seeing at volcanoes national park, and fresh foods from local farmers markets, you won't find a better retreat!

DEFINITELY PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Two months in paradise at House of Shimmering Waters! Magnificient views, quality furnishings, immaculate condition and all accuratley described. Aaron provided great suggestions for activities during our two month stay. Though we never met he is quite the host. His caretaker, Rex, was most helpful and accomodating and was most accomodating in insuring we had a pleasant stay. If you desire peace, solitude and being away from the hustle of tourist life then this is the place for you. We found it conveniently located about half way between Hilo and Kona. This enabled us to explore in different directions and make the best utilization of our time. Green sand beach, black sand beach, sea turtles, national parks, hiking, fruit trees, Kona coffee...everything we dreamed it would be! We loved Naalehu and especially the Hana Hou Restaurant and the Wednesday and Saturday Farmers Market. Can't wait to get back.

We had such a wonderful time here. It is secluded, comfortable and we enjoyed coming home in the evenings. We will definitely stay here again and also recommend it to others.
