Overview

Kealakekua House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Hale Hula is nestled in the heart of Kona coffee country on the upcountry slopes of Kealakekua. Located on a 10 acre macadamia nut farm orchard, privacy and serenity is the key feature of this wonderful Hawaiian getaway. Enjoy a cup of 100% Kona coffee while relaxing on your private lanai overlooking pasture and orchard. Our fireplace makes any cool evening a cozy and romantic environment.

The private, fenced and gated house is eco-friendly and is perfect for any environmentally conscious individuals. We are completely off-grid, yet offer all the modern luxury and conveniences while experiencing Hawaii at its' best. We have a water filtration system that makes drinking and bathing an experience to appreciate.

The Hale Hula kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and has a lovely dining area that overlooks the pastures. The spacious bedroom offers a comfortable queen sized bed. Sliding glass doors will take you from your bedroom onto the lanai where you can relax after a long day of snorkeling.

With Kahaluu Beach only a short 20 minutes away, you will enjoy some of the best snorkeling that the Big Island offers. Sea turtles are often spotted there, and we will supply you with your snorkeling gear, beach towels/mats, and beach chairs.

Take a stroll to the top of the 10 acres where your hosts will give you a complimentary tour of the over 70 parrots who call Parrots in Paradise Sanctuary their home. This non-profit parrot sanctuary was founded by the owners to provide refuge for the numerous displaced parrots throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Truly an incredible experience that many visitors to Hawaii miss.

Hale Hula was built in 2011, reminiscent of the plantation homes of days long gone. The house is completely furnished with authentic vintage Hawaiiana. Many of the furnishings are rare pieces from the owners' personal collection.

Because we are animal lovers, our two friendly dogs have the roam of the entire ten acres. They mind their own business which usually involves keeping track of the horses and cattle on neighboring properties.

Because we are off-grid, we do not have cable access. We do have Wireless Internet, a television with DVD player, and plenty of DVD's that you can borrow. With great cell phone reception, you still will be able to access your calls and have communication.

We know that you will enjoy your stay at Hale Hula. It is truly a wonderful experience that will give you the ultimate Hawaii experience. We look forward to meeting you, and being your hosts here on the Big Island. Please feel free to contact us via email or telephone with any questions or concerns that you may have.

Mahalo for your interest in Hale Hula !!!

About Dorothy Walsh

We are your hosts, Jerry and Dorothy Walsh. We moved from Southern California in 1988, and have been here ever since. Jerry is the owner of Kainaliu Gardens where he operates a fruit tree garden center in the town of Kainaliu. Dorothy is a retired nurse practitioner, who spends most of her time with the sanctuary parrots and tending to the orchards.

We have two children who graduated from the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Our daughter is a hospice nurse, and our son is an art teacher/farmer.

We feel blessed to live in Hawaii all these years and love the simple lifestyle that has surrounded us.

Absolutely Hawaiian

  • 5 of 5
A First class accommodation in a beautiful slightly remote location. Loved the fruit trees, all the macadamia nuts you could eat, and a very interesting parrot sanctuary. The owners are on-sight and very pleasant. The cottage has everything you will need, very comfortable with a lovely porch and outside shower to get the sand off when you get doused! The Big Island is so interesting. Lots of geology and beautiful scenery, but not much in the way of beaches.

The cottage and our hosts were nicer than we could have imagined. We will be returning in the future! This was a great location to get away and relax. We took advantage of the beach chairs/towels/snorkel/boogie boards for a great day at the beach. After staying here I'm not sure we could stay any place else when we visit Hawaii.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week at Hale Hula and can't wait to go back! Everything said in the other glowing reviews of this property is true -- the owners Dorothy and Jerry are gracious, warm hosts, the property is spotless, well-appointed and comfortable, the location is sunny and warm during the day and refreshingly cool in the evenings, and sitting on the lanai cracking and eating macadamia nuts is a great way to gear up for a day exploring the beautiful island. This was without a doubt the most restful vacation we have ever had. One week was not long enough for us to see everything we wanted to see, so I guess that means we have to go back next year!

Beautifully Designed Retreat with a Romantic Feel

  • 5 of 5
I have been working on a long-term project in Hawaii, and have stayed in quite a few wonderful place, but this one deserves special mention. Dorothy and Jerry are kind and interesting hosts - always available but never intrusive. Their home is within view, but the cottage feels very private and serene.

Everything is in the very best condition, from the beautiful hardwood floors to the pots, pans and knives. Bed linens are of fine quality, and the bed is soooo comfortable. I really enjoyed the interesting lighting - some Art Deco pieces, and some true Hawaiiana lamps.

The cottage is off-grid, but internet worked very well, you will have plenty of hot water.

Enjoy the raw macadamia nuts and fruits that your hosts will share with you.

And this is the CLEANEST place I have ever seen! (Kind of an inspiration for me, actually...)

Work can be stressful for me, and I slept like a baby here. Hope to visit again!

Parrots And Paradise, what more to add!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful and thoughtfully built cottage is perfectly located away from the hustle of Kailua-Kona. At 2'000 feet elevation the evenings are cool but the cottage is very warm and cozy, coupled with the warm welcome from Dorothy and Jerry.
Getting there was easy thanks to Dorothy's explanations and our trusty GPS (we arrived at night under torential rain and couldn't see anything), it is out of the way and off the grid, no doubt :-)
The photos and descriptions were very accurate and the cottage is very clean and extremely well maintained as is the rest of the property, it is clear that our hosts take pride in their poperty.
We have been recommending this property to our friends.
While staying at this end of the island we visited daily the "Up country bakery and café", we also liked the pizzeria next door. Sewing as a hobby I was very happy to find one of the best fabric stores with a wide variety of choice at the right price in Kealakekua "H Kimura Store Inc". It was a great base to explore the south end beaches (black sand and rocks, as well as Puuhonua O Honaunau historical village).
Overall our experience at the cottage was very positive and we would come back in heartbeat.
Thanks for your hospitality and generosity!
