Kehena House Rental Photos and Description

2 oceanview bedrooms, plus loft, 2 baths, sleeps 5

Under new Ownership! This unique, contemporary award winning concrete home perched cliff side on the rural, easternmost point of Kehena, offers views of the ocean from every vantage point. Round glass windows frame and bring the outside in.

The middle entry section has the living room, dining area, kitchen, sleeping loft, plus a covered lanai to sit and enjoy the views. Winding up a spiral staircase to the third floor is the master bedroom with queen bed, bath with tiled shower and another viewing deck. The second bedroom with queen bed and second bathroom is on the first floor, close to laundry room and garden with outdoor shower.

There is TV on each floor with satellite. And now wireless internet! The kitchen is fully equipped with high end appliances, LG stainless steel 25 c.f. refrigerator/freezer. cutlery, pots and pans. The grassy lawn provides a spectacular vantage point to sun and watch the whales go by!

Walk to the black sand beach.

Lava Flow Viewing and Volcano Park: Only a few minutes drive to view the lava flow (as Pele permits). Drive the scenic Red Road to Kalapana, where the town was covered with lava and the local church was moved a few miles inland. See the newly forming black sand beach. Visit Volcano National Park, about 40 miles drive and walk through the Thurston Lava tube, see rain forests and hike the Kilauea caldera. View the present volcanic eruption. See the ever burning fireplace in the Volcano House in the Park. If you've never done it, golf on top of a volcano - at the Volcano Golf Coarse, then visit the local Volcano Winery and taste the local flavors - macadamia nut wine, guava wine and others. Take a helicopter ride over the top of the volcano!

About 3 hours drive from Kona Airport and 35 minutes drive from Hilo Airport.

Other sights to see: Kehena is a small eclectic community at the edge of the sea and the beautiful black sand beach (clothing optional). Many artists and 'free spirits' reside and vacation here. Only 12 miles to Pahoa, an historic old western type town with clapboard sidewalks, offering several very good restaurants, banks, ATM machines, small grocery stores, a health food store, boutiques, hardware store, real estate office, medical clinic and post office.

Drive or bicycle the 'Red Road' north to Pohoiki Bay and Isaac Hale Park where the local surfers and boogie boarders congregate and fisherman launch their boats. You can also take a boat from here to view the lava flow from the ocean!

Further north you can stop and soak in the hot ponds, thermally heated fresh and seawater pools, then snorkel at the Waiopae tidepools, which offers some of the best snorkeling on the island. See beautiful colored corals and tropical fish.

Drive through the 'tunnel of trees' and see the Lava Tree Park.

Hilo and Hamakua Coast: About 40 miles north of the house is Hilo, sitting right on Hilo Bay, still charming like it was 50 years ago. Stroll Liliokalani Park, Coconut Island and see King Kamehameha statue. Visit the Tsunami Museum, Imiloa Astronomy Center, the old downtown Theatre and shop the many bayfront and downtown stores.

Then take a short drive to beautiful Rainbow Falls and Pee'Pee Falls right in town. Travel north along the wild and beautiful Hamakua Coast. Drive the 4 miles scenic Old Mamalahoa Hiway. Stop and hike to Akaka Falls, visit the World Botanical Gardens. If you love flowers, this side of the island is home to many orchid farms, anthurium growers and has many tropical plants from all over the world.

See the Waipio Valley from the top, or ride horses in the valley.

There is so much to do - make sure you plan a long vacation so you can see it all.

We have a visitor's guide in the house along with maps.

Unique Lodging Experience

A truly unique home. Cozy living area. Comfy beds. Sweet kitchen. The design gives you the feeling of being on a ship. If you don't like heights, stay on the first or second floor. The house is very well maintained and super clean. Apple TV was a plus. If you are looking for a unique place to stay, this is definitely it - there's no other place like it.

We had a great time staying at this unique house with the waves crashing below us, even a tsunami warning we were unaware of! Great location for exploring the Hilo side of the island. Very lush.

The raw concrete fitted with upscale fixtures perfectly echoes the raw lava intermixed with modernity. This is a very, very special house, and we loved every minute of our stay, especially the thundering surf and the crazy little geckos. The house was impeccably clean and the most well-stocked place we have ever stayed, although for some reason about half the lightbulbs were burned out. We had total privacy in the house and yard, and the neighborhood was walkable and gorgeous. We drove all over the island and had many experiences, but really nothing was better than dining on the lanai while the waves worked the coast.
Owner's Response: Thank you for staying! Please come back again! - The Management
