Overview

Keaau Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Studio with bbq grill,microwave,outdoor cooking&dining

Jan 11-21 the main house is available for maximum party of 5 and/(studio is for TWO only, in a queen bed with memory foam mattress)... if you rent the house and the studio for a total of 3 bedrooms. PLEASE state how many people, beds or bedrooms needed to see if both are available for your desired dates. the CALENDAR shows the STUDIO bookings reserved already..there MIGHT be more weeks later this year for the house and studio, PLEASE INQUIRE with SPECIFICS.....Absolute Oceanfront Haven has an Oceanfront Studio with Deck as well as another bathroom accessible from pool and deck. Swimming pool is oceanfront and property is next to statepark for walking along tide pools and hot ponds that you can wade in on calm ocean days. Has instant hot/cold filtered water for tea/ Coffee maker, fridge,microwave, bbq. toaster and Panini grill for pancakes/eggs/bacon too. (outdoor kitchen will be built later in the year.) 3 outdoor tables and MANY chairs, for preparing 'pupus' and your meals plus sunlounges for in the pool and poolside. A new loveseat swing awaits your whale watching! Adults only,as the pool is deep. Adult atmosphere here is suitable for anyone over 18 but bars,shops and restaurants are a 15 minute drive, so perhaps over age 25 and couples are happiest not 5 minutes walking or driving to bars

The queen bed is a real queen bed.

Please read more descriptions about our area to see how well you would like visiting the big island of Hawaii. This east coast is similar to Hana on Maui, much more tropical than the touristic areas, but still within 1/2 an area of a larger city with all the amenities and within 15 minutes of markets and a charming Pahoa town, hot pond heated geothermally next to the ocean in a protected scenic rock wall with showers,toilets,picnic benches. We are 7 miles from town and the road is straight without ANY stoplights to town. Beware some remote places are accessible by muddy rocky roads, no cell or internet services, even off the grid without electricity. The coqui frogs are not outside your window here as there is a very large deck raised 4ft up and surrounding the guest house,called Ohana(means family in Hawaiian). A Hui Ho...welcome!

Oceanfront view

  • 5 of 5

Jack and Nida were great hosts. They were available by phone for all our questions and requests. VRBO mobile site was all but useless. Rental was clean and perfect size for my wife and I. The pool and hot tub was a great bonus. View was amazing but trees and greenery could have been trimmed to increase the view of the ocean. All in all it was a great private place to stay. The wife and I would definitely stay here again.

Live like a Local

  • 4 of 5

What a great get away location. If you want some place away from the touristy areas and desire to feel like you live in Hawaii - Stay here. Very gracious hosts, private and quiet location. Clean, safe, and affordable. Jack went out of his way to make us truly feel like house guests. A quick note to plan ahead as far as groceries, etc. If you stay here, highly recommend a trip into the funky town of Pahoa.

Worked for us!

  • 4 of 5

We felt comfortable & safe in this little ohana. Slept with the door open every night, listening to the ocean, frogs & rain. Might bother some, but not us! Although it rained a couple of days (and several nights), a sunny spot was never far away. We didn't spend much of the day here, preferring to check the area out & there's plenty to see. Bathroom was good size, plenty of closet space for light packers like us, but bed is the really the only indoor spot to relax. However, you'll probably be outdoors as much as possible, enjoying the warm weather (even when it rains). Cooking may present a challenge but if you're used to camping like we are, it's fine. That being said, I think we only cooked a couple of meals in 5 days. Used the hot tub a bit; didn't use the pool. Host was ready to provide anything needed and respected our privacy. Would rent again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! We love the frogs singing like crickets at night! No one that has stayed hasn't! It gives it the tropical jungle feel, just like how it looks during the day, and at night, its magical too. Like they said, we give you your privacy, so swim or jacuzzi anytime! On the oceanfront, things rust overnight, there are so many kitchen amenities covered in plastic or in the side storage area!, you shouldn't feel like you are camping...We have a 3 burner gas stove to avoid the "camping" cooking described as well as added several tables and enlarged the deck (was already 1600 sq ft!)..you shouldn't have to feel like you are "balancing" your dishes on edge of anything, anymore! For the "outdoor kitchen" we will enclose it with glass sliding doors and add a tile counter,so it will almost not be an outdoor experience then. For relaxing indoors, we dont really suggest it! BECAUSE...there is SO MUCH SPACE to do so on the deck! we have over 16 chairs, and four inside the room itself, so for space to relax inside the room besides the bed, we were confused why they said that? Anyway, many guests have given us suggestions for improvement our first year&we implemented all,yes all, so far! this is a hobby for us, so we enjoy and aim to please.Its been so fun to meet everyone from everywhere and to go to some attractions, see the lava, swim in hotponds and fantastic snorkle spots with guests,cool restaurants and bbq here with guests when desired.we recycle,compost goes to a friend's pig! NO smoking and serene OASIS, except for crashing waves sound and froggies song. ( or a distant occasional whoop like, "Yea, I caught one!" from a fisherman many yards down the coast).Please also ask for maui condo special vrbo.com/507401 if you need to meet minimum stay requirment or want to see Maui too, its an Oceanfront complex in Kihei called Maui Sunset Resort.

Wake up to sounds of the surf

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Absolute Oceanfront. The location was very handy, close enough to Hilo for restaurants or fresh fish for the BBQ, the Kopona Tide Pools for fabulous snorkeling (thanks Jack, for the equipment loan!) and the lovely drive through the old Mango grove, and of course the Volcano Park (day and night). Leisurely breakfasts on the deck (strawberry papaya and toast with Lilokoi butter), farmers market takeaway picnics, and a relaxing hot tub before bed - wake up to the sounds of the surf and repeat!! Photos are accurate- kitchen can be a bit of a juggle for a full meal, but plans are in the works to make the outdoor kitchen area more functional. The owners were very helpful and available, answered calls promptly etc.
