OCEAN VIEW HOME W LANAI NEAR AKAKA FALLS - GRILL, WI FI, WD/DW

Hakalau House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, + studio (Sleeps 8-9)

Kick back on your breezy lanai after a hard day of island living as cruise ships make their evening rounds over the horizon and dinner roasts on the grill. This comfortable family home plus separate studio, sleeps eight on four beds and has a plush couch for a stowaway or new friend. There are three bedrooms in the main house to rent, and if you wish to add it for added privacy, there is a separate, furnished studio with its own kitchenette, full bath and covered view lanai that can be accessed from indoors.

Fruit trees on the property produce year-round avocados and bananas along with seasonal citrus and guava, plus pineapples. Enjoy all of the creature comforts you’ll need to feel at home – three flat screen televisions with cable/blue-ray/Netflix, WiFi, iHomes for your ipod/mp3 player, dishwasher, washer and dryer and beach toys including towels, chairs, body boards, snorkel gear and a cooler.

Old Honomu town is located 18 minutes north of Hilo and 15 minutes away from Honoli’i surf beach on the Big Island of Hawaii. Village shops are a two-minute walk into town, where you’ll find shave ice and fresh baked goods at Mr. Ed’s, gourmet lunch plates at the Woodshop Gallery and Café, grocery sundries at Jan’s Store and locally crafted gifts at a number of shops.

Just a short two mile drive to the amazing Akaka Falls. If you prefer an aerial view of nearby rivers and waterfalls head to Skyline Eco Tours and book a zipline adventure.

I'm an emergency physician, originally from Puerto Rico, who enjoys travel and island living.

Joanie Lehr, RB purchased this house in 2007

Honomu is the quintessential plantation town, with beautiful ocean views, welcoming people and shops within walking distance.

My favorite Honomu activity is to bike up the cane roads, take in the Pacific on the downhills, and enjoy a local beer on my lanai.

AKAKA FALLS VRBO

  • 4 of 5
This is a great home to stay at if you're attending Merrie Monarch. It's 15-20 minutes to Hilo town (or Imiloa for the cultural events that go on there) and just another 5-10 minutes to the Edith
Kanakaole Stadium and the wonderful craft fairs throughout town and the hotels. The oceanview from the lanai is so beautiful regardless of whether it rains or not you can't help but absorb all the different moods that weather changes reflect; not to say the least about the early morning sunrise off the ocean and the various cloud formations that help your imagination run rampant.
The house was comfortable for four adults and one keiki. We also took up the studio next door with a last minute adult add-on. Both homes were just nice and comfortable. Being near Aka ka Falls in the early morning hours as the sun begins to rise you catch the rain the comes down from the mountains...quite refreshing . All in all it was a great place to stay and we all had a wonderful time.

RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had been traveling through the tourist "must see" sights on the Big Island and after a few weeks took a much needed time out at this home in Honomu. What a pleasant surprise! We cooked most meals in the very well equipped kitchen and were able to pick oranges, limes and avocados right from the property. The lanai was perfect for relaxing and watching the skyline over the ocean. We found the location of the property perfect for day trips into the Hilo and Puna districts and it's over all tranquility absolutely rejuvenating!

MUCH CAN BE DONE BUT STILL RELAXING!

  • 4 of 5
Comfortable, well equipped kitchen, queen bed in master BR, doubles in smaller bedrooms. Shower in MBR, tub with shower for two smaller bedrooms. Big property with fruit trees (avocado, orange, bananas). Lots of stairs into house so not OK for mobility impaired. Lighting in house is low voltage and not good for reading. Hilo is easy to get to for shopping. Honomu village has little to offer food-wise. Farmers Market in Hilo Wednesdays and Saturdays is a must for fruits and veggies. Honey on big island is wonderful. Lots of stuff to see and do around Island, zip-lining, Volcano NP, Mauna Kea observatory (13800 feet) and observation level (8500 feet) but dress for cold weather!, Costco in Kona, Kona (try poke), green and black beaches (for sea turtles), Mauna Kea Beach Hotel for great Sunday brunch ($$$), and more! Gas is much cheaper on Hilo side! Nice brewery in Kona!

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
A few girl friends and I came over from Oahu for a wedding. This place was great. It was well equipped for us to cook a few meals and spacious enough for us to hang out. We enjoyed the breeze and ocean view from the front porch. Got some avocados from the back yard too.
Good location, it is about 20 minutes from town which isn't that bad. Right next to the entrance of Akaaka falls with a few small shops around. The little town was cute!
Enjoyed our stay very much! Thanks!

QUIET, PEACEFUL

  • 4 of 5
This property is located in the quaint little town of Honomu about 12 miles out of Hilo. The property itself is nice but be aware that the studio sleeps only 2 people comfortably (not 3). There is no visible address on the property which makes it a bit of a challenge to locate, especially at night.
There are 2 Akaka Falls signs on highway 19. One just says "Akaka Falls, 4 miles" and the other says "Akaka Falls/Honomu". The property is located about 50 feet after the Akaka/Honomu sign; be prepared to make a quick left turn.
Overall, we enjoyed our time at this property. The manager answers calls/questions promptly.
