BRAND NEW EVERYTHING!
We have one of the largest and best-kept private estates that is IN Kehena Beach Subdivision. The cozy 2-bedroom cottage dwells in a double lot and is surrounded by a 10-foot privacy hedge. Extensive landscaping means there is almost always something to eat from our trees. Avocado, star fruit, Tahitian limes, pineapples, figs, Ruby grapefruits, blood oranges and MORE! A short 2 block jaunt will find you at the world-famous black sand Kehena Beach. This home is frequented by the owners who take meticulous care in the house and grounds-keeping to provide you with a luxury experience at a budget price. One block from Yoga classes and other retreats at Ramashala. 1.5 miles to the lovely Kalani Honua for retreats, great gourmet meals, and spa amenities. 3 miles to Uncle Robert's Awa Club for an unsurpassed authentic Hawaiian experience that should not be missed, including the Wednesday night farmers market. SPACE Farmers Market is about a mile away for Saturday morning shopping. Don't be surprised if the neighbors come by with a basket of fresh fruit harvested in Kehena. This home is a real resort-quality vacation at a budget price.

Christine raised daughter Marie in this neighborhood from 1988-1998, and we are still surrounded by life-long friends here. It was a 20 year dream to one day own property here and eventually this is where we will retire. This home is really our home that we share with guests from around the world. We love this house and neighborhood - our hearts are in this place!
We love this home for the landscaping and abundant fruit trees. Having a double lot surrounded with the large privacy hedge makes this a very unique property in Kehena Beach Estates. The 2-block walk to the beach is fabulous as is the one block walk to Ramashala for yoga classes! Dining on weekends down the red road at Kalani Honua makes this a perfect resting place for those seeking these types of amenities with ultimate privacy in accommodation. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!
We came here for a few days while my mother and her husband were visiting from Australia, and we were all happy with the experience. The house itself is comfortable and well-decorated with quality furnishings and appliances, and it was convenient to have fast wi-fi out in the middle of the Puna jungle. The yard is gorgeous, with yummy fruit trees and a pretty outdoor shower. Best of all, it's within walking distance to Kehena beach, where I actually did get to swim with the dolphins-pure magic! Highly recommended, all around.
Three of us stayed at Hale Kii Nani for two nights and we all wished we could have stayed longer. It was the highlight of our two week trip to the Big Island. The house is very comfortable with everything we needed and the yard was spectacular. My husband is a bit of a shutter bug and he spent a lot of time taking pictures of flowers and Kehena black sand beach. Having the beach close by was a bonus - we could take a leisurely stroll for a swim with the dolphins. I recommend the beach first thing in the morning when it is magical. Evenings on the lanai were lovely and an excellent spot to relax over drinks and dinner. I have recommended Hale Kii Nani to my osteopath for his honeymoon in 2013. Beautiful top notch accommodation.
This rental had just come on line when I stayed, having been recently converted to this use from a private residence. Let me be the first to observe that it still feels very nicely appointed and home-like in atmosphere. The immediate neighborhood surroundings are quiet and welcoming. The landscaping is park-like and beautifully maintained. Inside, the new furnishings are nicely styled and coordinated, and the entertainment system is first-rate as well. I had a wonderful and relaxing stay and would recommend this unit to anyone interested in a two bedroom rental in Kehena in a heartbeat.
This isn't Seaview or Puna Palisades - this is the prestigious Kehena Beach Estates. It's a 2 block walk to Kehena Beach! 3.5 miles south is Uncle Robert's Awa Club for a taste of authentic Hawaiian culture and music that is pretty much 24/7. Bordering Uncle Robert's is the ONGOING LAVA flows that are easily accessible and viewable most of the time. The fabulous Kalani Honua Resort is about 1.5 miles north. Poho`iki Boat Ramp and surf breaks are 7 miles north as is the Alahanui Warm Ponds - a thermally heated olypmic sized delight of nature! A couple miles north of that are the world-famous Kapoho tide pools.
