Overview

Keaau House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This beautiful Japanese home was custom-built in 2009. Each room has shoji sliders which open fully to let the outside in. An antique Japanese garden gate was the inspiration for the custom-built front door using Japanese Sugi Pine. This wood was also used for both the master bath's vanity and tub surround. The house was designed to allow visitors standing outside the front door to be able to view the ocean through the rooms of glass. The home is protected via an alarm system.

The home is located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood, where the only sounds are the waves striking the lava cliff walls. The home is built 140' from the ocean, the last 40' is uncovered lava which drops down the 20' cliffs into the Pacific. We've left the backyard completely natural with many ironwood trees and a few coconut palms for a park-like setting, the ironwood's soft carpet of needles come up to the house edge.

The Great Room has a dramatic cathedral wood ceiling. One shoji doors open a full 12' onto a long, covered engawa. Another shoji door opens onto a tri-level deck that overlooks the backyard and ocean. Throughout the house is dark horizontal-cut bamboo flooring. All rooms have ceiling fans.

There are two master suites. The downstairs master has a queen-size wooden Japanese Zen bed, the shoji sliders open a full 10' that lead to a covered engawa. There's a stunning Japanese-style bathroom tiled in natural Slate stone. Both suites have large walk-in closets with dressers. The upstairs master has a comfortable queen-size bed, with the shoji sliders leading to the slate-tile covered lanai overlooking the ocean. This attractive bathroom has a large granite counter along with slate stone flooring and shower walls. You're able to sit in bed (in both master suites) and watch the ocean. I've seen schools of dolphins, turtles, scuba divers, and many, many whales. Of course, you could sit out on the engawa, deck, or even the backyard for closer viewing.

The full kitchen has granite counters and a crushed granite sink, bamboo flooring, an antique Japanese tansu, and shoji sliders that can shut the kitchen completely off from the Greatroom.

Our area of Keaau is quite unique, this bay is also known as 'Whale Cove' for the many migrating whales that stay here during the winter months. The area is also called the 'Blue Hole' since the volcano's VOG rarely comes out for a visit. Most mornings you're treated to an incredible sunrise!

Wonderful Home close to the Ocean!

  • of 5
We had a wonderful 3 night stay in this beautiful home. All the pictures you see on VRBO are true to what really exists. Every day we were treated to something different......quiet calm and beautiful scenery one day to strong winds and high surf (really enjoyed this!) another day/night.... to many, many whale sightings our final day. Great location.....our best stay yet on the Hilo side of the Big Island.

Zen-like accommodation in a stunning setting

  • 5 of 5
Everything from the very first interaction with the owner was simply perfect. This was our first time on Hilo, and we adored the house and it's setting. Lots of areas so we could each have our own corner, but also a wonderful large and airy living room so we could hang out together, and a big deck with the most stunning views. The Japanese decor is carried out through the house with lots of detail and attention, and makes you want to just sit back, relax, and never leave!

Thanks again!!

Eastside Oasis

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our stay. We wanted to spend more time visiting the natural sites on the east side of the Big Island rather than driving back and forth to Kona. We didn't want to make any sacrifices on space, conveniences, or ocean views. (Picky, aren't we?) This home gave us all we wanted and needed, great space, great location, and a great view.

Puna paradise

  • 5 of 5
This house is a stunning retreat, and I would love to live here. It provided me the opportunity to refresh after months of corporate grind. Most days began with a swim at Richardson Beach and continued with some afternoon adventure. I often cooked dinner, so I particularly valued the kitchen. And the bathrooms are spa quality. If decompression and restoration are your goals, consider a vacation here.

Great House Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed staying at this great house! It was quiet (except for the frogs outside at night - but they added to the charm) and nicely out of the way. Exactly what we were looking for! It was well stocked with linens, towels, kitchen items and even snorkeling equipment.
