PRIVATE RETREAT AT KALOLI POINT WITH SHORT WALK TO OCEAN CLIFFS

Keaau House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom House, 2 Full Baths, Great Room and Loft, Sleeps 6

We know this property is Top Picks… we rented it ourselves for three years then bought it!

Hale Ipo “Sweetheart House” has ideal accommodations for a family or several couples/individuals. To our local guest, this is not a venue for a large party or ceremony.

Hale Ipo is in a great location on Beach Road in Hawaiian Paradise Park (Kaloli Point) ~private, fruit trees and fabulous flora, short walk to ocean cliffs (sea turtles year-round, whales in winter), miles of ocean trails (one hour walk to secluded beach), and a panoramic view of Mauna Kea from the wrap-around deck.

The elevated living space is designed to capture the ocean breezes and sounds while providing tree top views of birds in flight. (There are large ceiling fans in every room… we rarely use them!)

After a great night sleep on our comfortable beds (tree frog noise is minimal), plan your day of Big Island fun including visits to Volcano National Park (active volcano), Onizuka Center for International Astronomy, numerous beaches (white, black, or green sand), waterfalls, scenic overlooks, and unlimited recreational destinations (guide books and recommendations provided).

Or be truly adventurous… you are in Hawaii- plan nothing and live in the moment!

e komo mai (Welcome)! Greg & Laura Garrison, Owners

EPIC VACATION

This home was true to all the listing information. It had everything we needed to relax and everything we needed to go out and play. From the well stocked kitchen (i love to cook and this home supplied all the necessary tools) to beach towels and chairs to snorkel gear and bicycles . We had a great nights sleep every night , the beds were comfortable and the sheets smelled so great. This home is in a good location to go out and explore all the big island has to offer. The home was clean and well furnished, the ability to open the sliding doors provided a wonderful breeze after a long day of hiking. Coming from New England we loved hearing the tree frogs at night (they sounded similar to peepers ) Kapoho tide pools were a favorite of ours, along with the green sand beach, black sand beaches . We did go to the west side of the island two different times to do the night manta ray snorkel and dolphin/whale watch with Jacks Diving Locker . What a well run relaxed company. We swam with dolphins, and saw about 10 whales breaching. The night snorkel was an amazing experience, we highly recommend it, one of a kind ! As for restaurants ..... we ate at so many for dinner its hard to say which one was our favorite, it all depends on your taste. The freshest fish iv'e ever had was on this island. We have all ready talked about planning a return trip! I Me and my husband have truly enjoyed our vacation here at this home, leaving was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Mahalo to the owners !

Perfect. Absolutely Perfect.

This vacation rental was perfect in every single way. It was far more impressive than the pictures show - in fact it was so beautifully and tastefully appointed we would happily live there permanently. The property is spacious, private, and extremely well kept. There are views of fruit trees from all of the windows, and at night there is the sound of tree frogs (not unbearably loud, but peaceful, tropical, and pleasant) if you leave the windows open for a gentle breeze.

The property owner was super responsive to any inquiries we had. She made sure we had all of the necessary information in advance of my trip, so we could relax with one less thing to worry about. Also, there are plenty of books provided at the property about things to do while on the Big Island.

The location was fantastic. This property is on the more lush, less hurried side of the island. There is a black sand beach not too far away, and there is a green sand beach a couple hours drive south. It was not far from Volcano National Park and Hilo Airport. There was also a grocery not far away and a great little place called Hilo Coffee Mill where they grow their own coffee.

We loved everything about it, and our only regret was that we could not stay longer. We would recommend this lovely vacation home to anyone looking to stay on the Big Island.
Owner's Response: Mahalo for sharing your "perfect" vacation experience! We agree that the house location is ideal.. away from the tourist traps yet steps away from miles of ocean trails. So much to see and do. There have been numerous updates to the home and property since the website photos were posted. As soon as we mount the new 4 foot custom tile whales to the stairway landing we will update the photos!

A great experience at a great house

We stayed for five nights and had a great time. As everyone knows, you can't always tell what a property will be like from photos, and in this case we all felt like the actual property greatly exceeded our expectations. The house was clean and ready for guests, and had nice amenities like snorkeling gear and bicycles. It was very comfortable for our family of five with a lot of space for everyone to 'spread out' when we decided to spend the day 'in'. The cliffs nearby were beautiful and there was great snorkeling about 40 minutes away. We would definitely recommend this home!

A week in Paradise

This is a great house. It was very clean and the white decor is very calming. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, with a great set of stainless steel cookware. The fans help to keep it cool, and the beds are very comfortable.
Pat was very friendly and accommodating and I appreciated her helpfulness.
Try the fish and chips at Pahoa Fish, and Luquines Mexican restaurant.
I have stayed at other homes in Paradise Park and this is definitely my favorite. I highly recommend it.

Picture Perfect

I titled my review this way because the pictures provided, truly express the warmth and comfort of the home. Laura was wonderful to work with and my family and I also had the pleasure of meeting caretaker, Patty. The house is great, and everything essential to your visit, is right at your finger tips.

The walk to the cliffs is a mile out, but it's worth it to see - not to mention, good exercise! I definitely recommend this home, not only for what it offers, but the friendly and attentive service that was extended to my family and I!
Owner's Response: It was fun hearing about your Grandfather's 100 birthday Jen! Please return sometime for a longer stay. You must have walked Beach Road to the cliffs.. reserve that trip for a ride on our bikes. The lava paths near the house take you through the woods directly to the ocean, and connect to miles of ocean trails. It's my favorite thing to do! Come back in Feb/March for whale sightings. Until then, Laura

The 'Big Island' is not so big! You can drive from one side to the other in a couple hours.

Renting on the eastern side of the island offers a retreat from the tourism and crowds of the Kona district, while allowing easy access to the rest of the island's attractions.

Start your day with a short walk to the ocean cliffs and visit the honu (sea turtles) and whales (winter months).

Enjoy walking the miles of ocean trails, or pack your swimsuit and detour through the woods for a one hour hike to secluded Shipman's Beach.

Explore the surrounding area on bicycle, or ride a short distance to the ocean cliffs at the end of our street.

The nearby town of Pahoa hosts a variety of stores and services. Take advantage of the large outdoor swimming pool at Pahoa Community Aquatic Center, no charge. Other local adventures include snorkeling at the Kapoho Tidal Pools, and a visit to clothing optional Kehena Beach off Route 137 (drum circle on Sunday).

Your vacation wouldn't be complete without one or more visits to Volcano National Park. Witness an active volcano, view petroglyphs, hike a crater trail, and explore the underground lava tubes (bring a flashlight).

Also plan to watch the sun set from above the clouds by the visitor center at the Onizuka Center for International Astronomy on Mauna Kea. After dark, stargaze using an array of powerful telescopes, then join in the nightly presentation and discussion to identify the constellations (dress warm!)

For an enjoyable day trip, drive the scenic northern coast to various waterfalls, botanical gardens, and overlooks including Akaka Falls, Waipi'o Valley, and the Pololu Valley.

Or visit the cattleranch town of Waimea on your way to beautiful Hapuna State Beach on the northwest coast.

Travel the southern coast to South Point (the southernmost point in the US) and hike to Green Sands Beach...or continue up the coast for kayaking and primo snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay. Spinner dolphins frequently circle the bay and often swim near or under your boat.

For a day of shopping and gallery hopping in Kona, cut across the interior of the island on the newly paved Saddle Road. Bring a jacket as the temps will drop in the higher elevations.

Hawaii promotes wonderful farmer's markets. Every Sunday, our local Makuu market features a taste of Hawaiian cuisine, fresh breads and produce, an assortment of art and crafts, and live entertainment.

For additional sight seeing destinations, recreation and leisure activities, consult the various guides provided at the house. For a list of festivals and live entertainment, pick up a current copy of Ke Ola magazine (free and available outside Island Naturals food store in Pahoa).
