Keaau Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 ACRE PROPERTY ~ 1 BR-1 BATH / SLEEPS 4-5

Aloha and welcome to Simply Paradise - Hale Honu on Sunny Kaloli Point. Our cozy cottage is on a peaceful forest retreat along rugged volcanic coastline, on the windward side of the Big Island of Hawaii. Just 20 minutes south of Hilo International Airport. Located in Hawaiian Paradise Park Subdivision, our home is in a safe, friendly, local neighborhood where you can walk, bike and enjoy the ocean scenery, you can even fish off the ocean cliffs nearby. Excellent for the whole family or perfect for a romantic getaway.

Hale Honu is an immaculate cottage with fully equipped kitchen, full bath with tub & shower, one bedroom with a double bed that has a NEW Serta, firm, quality mattress. Flat screen TV, comfortable double futon couch in living area and large lanai with hammock.

We feature 100% cotton linens and cotton bath and beach towels, bath, laundry and dish products. Both are immaculate with fully equipped kitchens and and cozy Tri-fold mattresses for extra sleeping comfort.

Guests will enjoy the sweet trade winds; being surrounded by orchids, ferns and native trees; listening to the sound of waves and venture a 5 minute walk to the ocean cliffs and view magnificent sun and moon rises out of the Pacific. Take a 4 1/2 mile hike to Shipman's/Ha'ena Beach.

During your stay take a 30 minute scenic drive up to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park at 4000 ft., the summit of the world's most active volcano, Kilauea. You can learn about our unique shield volcanoes and see how our islands are being created at the Jaggar Museum and Visitor Center. View ancient and active lava flows depending on activity and weather conditions. Some nights you can see the Kilauea lava 'glow' from the back lanai.

Tour the rim of the caldera at the summit and hike into a pit crater, then stroll through a 300 year old native rain forest and experience a lava tube. For the hungry hiker there are cafes, restaurants and a winery, all at Volcano Village, a charming community just outside of the park.

Take another day to discover old Hawaii. Visit Kalapana village, plant a coconut on Hawaii's newest Black Sand Beach created by lava flows in the 90's. Don't miss FREE Live Hawaiian Music outdoors here every Wed. and Fri. night and enjoy local treats at the farmers market and food stands, featuring a variety including vegan and vegetarian fare. On the way there, you'll pass the historical Star Of The Sea painted church. Down the coast you may be able to see a plume of steam rising where lava is flowing into the ocean!

Leisurely continue north along the coastline, there are many parks and breathtaking scenery. Experience exciting Zip Line Aventures North of Hilo, 5 total on the Big Island. You can often see the green sea turtles along the shore. At Pohoiki Bay you might catch some of the best surfers on the island. Fishermen launch their boats from the ramp here. Next you'll come to Ahalanui State Park. This is a must! Stay awhile, take off your shoes and relax in the warm waters.

This pond is heated by volcanic thermal vents. It is an ancient place of healing created and used for generations by Hawaiians. Once refreshed head towards Pahoa and take time to walk through Lava Tree State Park with it's fascinating tree molds and tranquil paths. Last stop is historic Pahoa town, a colorful community where you can dine or take out fresh fish, BBQ, Chinese, Italian, Mexican or Thai cuisine.

Include charming, eclectic Hilo Town in your itinerary. Second largest community in Hawaii. Explore Hilo's unique history on bay front at the Pacific Tsunami Museum. Down the street you will be among friendly people as you wander through the stands of the Hilo Farmers Market. Sample Hawaiian food, fresh, hot tamales and Filipino desserts! You can purchase fresh fish, tropical flowers, organic produce and exotic seasonal fruits to enjoy. You will find yourself in lush botanical gardens, waterfalls and the largest Japanese Garden in the USA. Enjoy snorkeling at Richardson's Beach, Hilo's own black sand beach. Spot dolphins, whales and swim with turtles. Then come home to your own private retreat where you can rest up for your next island adventure!

I invite you to come and enjoy paradise!

I am originally from Iowa and Leland is a Native of Hawaii, Army-Retired. We fell in love with the life style and beauty of the Big Island. Our wonderful Ohana, Ui'lani and Stan will enjoy assisting you. We hope that you will enjoy our Aloha and our home,

Mahalo, Elizabeth and Leland

U`ilani purchased this cottage in 2011

We chose beautiful Kaloli Point area because it's rural, safe, and friendly. Towns are easily accessible, but still has that small 'coastal community feel'.

It's always lush and green here! We are right in the middle of the best parts of the the Windward side of the Island. Beautiful Hilo to the North and tropical Kalapana to the South. There is so much history here in the 'Aina (land).

IT'S ALL TRUE!

It's All True!

This is a beautiful cottage that lives up to its reputation. Immaculate, trade winds, beautiful surroundings, pounding surf. The beach house is extremely well equipped. I love the darkness and quiet at night, as well as the soft breezes flowing in through this very well ventilated house. It can be warm when you first arrive, but turning on the overhead fan and opening the windows cools it down immediately. Even though there are other houses near by, the place feels very private, as one does not really see the other houses due to the abundant ohia trees and beautiful foliage. This house will be my first choice when I return…if it's available. Book early…it is in high demand!

IDYLLIC HAVEN

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was as described on the website and an ideal base for our 3-day car tour of some of the best locations on the Big Island of Hawaii. Its isolation from "town" facilities proved to be more of a blessing than a disadvantage; quiet starry moonlit nights enhanced by the soothing sounds of the birds and frogs communicating,

My wife and I were delighted with "Simply Paradise". What a lovely garden setting. And the facilities were great; U'ilani and Stan have thought of everything that goes to make it a home away from home.

We wish we could have stayed longer.

HALE HONU - A NICE RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Hale Honu is a cute and cozy home away from home. The surroundings include the beautiful ohia trees and the birds singing their happy songs. The home is very comfortable and relaxing. It was a perfect fit for my wife and I! Our future stays to Hilo will be at this property instead of staying at the downtown hotels.
Much Mahalos for your accommodations!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing "Simply Paradise - Hale Honu #432164 as your place to stay during your Big Island vacation.

I stopped by the cottage on your first morning being here, wanting to meet you both and to wish you folks a happy anniversary during your stay, but you had left already I am assuming to start your Big Island Vacation.

I hope you enjoyed the papayas I dropped off, but more so hoped the memories you both created on such a special occassion (Your Anniversary) was fullfilled.

I am so glad the quietness and the feeling of being in the tree house was a hit for you both.

Thank you again for choosing "Simply Paradise - Hale Honu #432164) as your place to stay.

EXCELLENT VALUE AND ACCOMODATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for one week during our one month stay on the Big Island. We chose this property based on the reviews and we were very happy with our choice. The location was perfect for exploring either north or south along the coast. We enjoyed the quick nightly trips to the ocean overlook nearby where we watched whales and the birds (Black Noddys). The reservations were easy to make, emails were always returned promptly and we were warmly greeted upon our arrival.

Owner's Response: Aloha,
We are happy you chose our place "Simply Paradise" based on our reviews, and much happier knowing you were happy making that choice once you reached and spent sometime at "Simply Paradise....Thank you.

We appreciate that you found our cottage to be in the perfect location when site seeing the North or South coastline.

And the ocean overlook that is just minutes away from the cottage, which you took advantage of for your nightly getaways, just to watch the whales, birds (Black Noddys) and the breath taking panoramic view of the ocean and rugged cliffs.

Thank you both for sharing your "Simply Paradise" experience with all that looks at my reviews.

And for your wonderful statements as to how your reservations had been handled from begining to end.

My note to you both:

I would like to thank you both for your warm Aloha when I first met you.....Thank you (Mahalo).

Take care (Malama Pono), Until we meet again. (A Hui Hou),

The location is good for going to waterfalls, Kilauea,and black sand beaches.Hilo is nearby and the little town Kea'au has everything you need for supplies. Try some of the huge assortment of poke at Foodland. It's ono. U'ilani should be the poster girl for Aloha. She's da best

Owner's Response: I am so happy to know that you feel the cottage is a perfect little place. Yes! and for that brightness, sunny, light experience you shared.

That is because of the Large windows that surrounds the cottage which seems to invite the outside in.

Yes and even when it rains, the brightness still shines.

As for the gospel affect you shared, that is so wonderful to know... thank you.

Glad to hear you visted and experiences many of the Wonderful and adventures, like the waterfalls, Kilauea,Black sand beaches or Hilo town which is not far.

And yes!!..Foodland Keaau where you can get most of your supplies does have a huge assortment of poke and it is ono!...

As I have shared in ALL my responses to ALL my Wonderful Reviews. I appreciate all my guest that comes to the Big Island and allows "Simply Paradise" to be a part of their wonderful memory.

I can honestly say that I have Wonderful guests, who leaves the Big Island as my friends.

Thank you for sharing your Aloha & experiences with me and for those who may view my cottage.
