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!

About U`ilani

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

Why U`ilani chose Keaau

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'.

What makes this cottage unique

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).

HPP happy

  • 5 of 5

This small cottage is great for a couple looking for a quiet place away from the bustle of town. It is in a residential community. Great for morning walks. Lots of linens and towels and dishes for four. Has a minimal set of pots and pans and not much in the way of larger size bowls. Comes with blender, rice cooker, toaster, coffeemaker, microwave, and oven. About half an hour from Hilo. Lots of windows that open. Lots of shade around the cottage with beautiful flowers. Only thing I wish it had was a listing of the available TV stations.

Owner's Response: Much Mahalo for your "HPP Happy" review. It is so nice to see you had taken advantage to enjoy morning walks. And found the necessities you needed to make your stay comfortable. Please know that we appreciate your comment on the television schedule and will find the channel on the T.V that shows the T.V schedule and will note that for my future guest(s).

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the month we spent in this rental. The location is terrific-it's in a quiet neighborhood, and in less than 15 minutes we could walk out to the dramatic cliffs at Kaloli Point and watch the whales, or continue on up the coast for a longer hike. This beautiful area is not in most of the tourist guides, so you'll have plenty of space to explore. There are no swimming beaches very nearby, but the snorkeling is great at the tide pools in Kapoho or up at Richardson's Beach in Hilo, each about 30-40 minutes drive.

The rental is comfortable for a couple. It does feel like a treehouse, with a nice second-floor lanai and lots of screened windows looking out to the ohia trees and the birds alighting on their beautiful red and yellow lehua blossoms.

U'ilani and Stan, the property managers, were very helpful and full of Aloha. We look forward to coming back!

Aloha and Mahalo for having this beautiful place to share. You provided all we needed plus a boggie board. It was a great place to come back to every night after a full day of touring, snorkeling, ziplining.

Great great great Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

You are completely surrounded by tree tops on all sides. Private, quiet spacious enough and you will want for nothing amenity-wise while there. As long time visitor to the Big Island it was a ideal location for my daughters to stay while we stayed with friends in HPP . Short walk to the ocean in a very safe area. I wish this place was mine.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your Great! review. We are happy to see that you appreciated our tree top surroundings and the walk to the ocean cliffs. Our only regret is that we did not have the pleasure of meeting you and your family. Perhaps the next time you return to the Big Island, we will have that pleasure. Again.....Thank you for your "Great" review. Mahalo & Aloha U'ilani

Fantastic base to explore the island!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was better than expected! Very cozy with a lot of room for the two of us. We enjoyed the full kitchen and amenities. It is a great place to unwind after a day of exploring the island. It's well located, easy to get to and very private! It does get hot inside when the sun is up, but cools rather quickly when night sets in. It's a good base to explore the east side of the island, and about a 2 hour drive to the south and west side. Overall a fantastic place to stay.

Located in the lush, tropical paradise of Sunny Kaloli Point. Our private cottages are located only minutes away from rugged volcanic coast and near Black Sand Beaches, Akaka Falls, Volcanoes National Park, Active Kilauea Volcano. Stroll thru historic Pahoa Town. Watch whales from the coastline (Dec.-Mar), take an exciting Zip Line Tour, pick up fresh, local items at many Farmers Markets. Or just 'kick back' and enjoy the birds, foliage and Hawaiian music in the hammock on the lanai!
