PRIVATE OCEANFRONT CONDO PUNALUU BLACK SAND BEACH

Punaluu Condo Rental Photos and Description

Welcome to your home away from home, Hale Ke Kai, “where the land and sea meet.” You will come to find out why so many local residents and visitors call it one of the best units at Colony I. We feel honored to have the opportunity to show you the reasons so many have fallen in love with the islands. Those reasons are here to be found in abundance.

The Big Island is our home and we go to great lengths to help you feel at home too. This spacious and beautifully furnished one bedroom condo is single level with absolutely no steps. Although it is considered a condo, there are no upstairs or downstairs neighbors, only the back wall of the closet is shared. Hale KeKai is unit #23 at the Sea Mountain Resort. The lanai (patio) is very private. Speaking of the lanai, “Wow!” is the usual response. Sweeping unobstructed ocean views that blend gently without interruption into an incredible mountain view. This is Hawaii, your Hawaii.

A high quality king size bed in the master bedroom will combine with the soft breezes and gentle lull of the waves to bring calm wondrous dreams of the beauty of the real Hawaii. The living and dining areas also have sweeping ocean views and are outfitted tastefully yet comfortably as this is as much our home as yours. The living area also boasts a fold out sofa bed that we have slept on ourselves and is very comfortable.

The kitchen with range, oven, microwave, full size fridge, coffee/espresso maker, dishwasher, and small appliances is well stocked with quality flat ware, a variety of teas, and condiments and spices to get you started on the meal of your choice.

The bathroom has a cavernous granite tiled shower that is an easy step inside. We love every corner of this place and believe you will too.

Enjoy some world famous Ka’u Coffee on the lanai or hang out at the pool or hot tub with new found friends, either way you will be glad to have found one of the world’s hidden gems. Punaluu Black Sand Beach, consistently voted one of the Top Ten Black Sand Beaches in the World, is only a few minutes’ walk away. Sunbathe beneath the palms, snorkel with turtles, or watch them haul up on the beach. Enjoy some golf or tennis right next door or for the more adventuresome, hike out either direction and re-discover Hawaiian historical sites (please show due respect to all archaeological sites and observe proper viewing distance and rules regarding all marine creatures).

Hale Ke Kai is perfect for any family or couple seeking the trip of a lifetime. A secluded, yet accessible wonder that will be remembered.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is only 30 minutes away, making Punaluu the closest ocean front lodging. Hike the volcano by day and relax in the hot tub under the stars by night. The pool and hot tub have wonderful ocean views and you can barbeque fresh island fish or local grass fed beef on one of the quality barbeques next to the pool.

Our special vision for Hale Ke Kai is for people who may be less able to travel to have the chance to visit one of the best kept secrets in the world…and be comfortable. Hale Ke Kai has no steps, no stairs, just a little bump at the front and sliding doors. This means couples where one partner is movement impaired or a family with aging parents can still share moments of beauty and peace. Our goal is for every family member, including children, to feel safe and at home. Should you or your loved one have special needs, please contact us, we will make every attempt to accommodate your needs.

Big Island residents since the year 2000 and avid hiker/kayak adventurers who also love working with horses and farming. We take great pride in our beautiful home at Punaluu and make every effort to help our guests feel at home too. Being close by allows us to keep our home up to a higher standard of cleanliness and beauty.

Jeff S. purchased this condo in 2013

If you seek the real Hawaiian experience, this is it. Hale Ke Kai at Colony One is smack in the middle of the longest undeveloped coastline in Hawaii. It also happens to be the closest oceanfront accommodations to Volcanoes National Park and is a few minutes walk to Punaluu Black Sand Beach. This is where we have been going to 'get away' for years.

The raw beauty of Hawaii surrounds Hale Ke Kai. Experience the stars and awesome views of the ocean, coast, and mountains without the noise, lights, and crowds. Truly one of the worlds' hidden gems.

Perfect Place To Stay On Big Island

If you had your choice of condos to stay at... this is absolutely the best one. Private lanai with great ocean view and view of the golf course. Our hosts, Jeff and Xenia, went way out of their way to make our stay comfortable... a very big mahalo to the both of you for all that you did. The location is the best because the climate is the best, not too hot, not too cold, not too rainy... you've got a golf course next door, a short walk to the black sand beach, a swimming pool, hot tub... and you're only 45 minutes from Volcano National Park. The nearby, nice little small town of Naalehu has groceries, gas, a couple of good places to eat. And you're exactly half way between Hilo and Kona... so it's an easy visit both areas. Xenia created a fantastic guidebook of the island that they give to their guests... it tells you everything you could want or need to know about the island. Most of all, I can't say enough about Jeff and Xenia... they are the perfect hosts... it's nice to know, when you're traveling so far to visit some place you've never been... that your hosts are so helpful and on top of every detail to make your trip a wonderful and memorable experience.

We would like to thank Jeff and Xenia for the use of their wonderful condo! Coffee AND beer on arrival? Who could ask for more!? We are avid runners and really enjoyed the challenging the 2.7 mile loop around the area. The hill was a killer! It was a nice stroll down to the black sand beach to see the Honu (sea turtles) chilling out. The complex is so quiet in the evenings, you almost feel like there is nobody else around. We highly recommend this condo to any who would like a clean, quiet retreat....and an awesome workout!

Heaven! I want to have my morning coffee and fresh pineapple on that patio for the rest of my life!

Such a beautiful location, amazing view, and a newly updated and very clean condo! You truly have the best location in the Sea Mountain complex, and have done such a nice job of remodeling and updating, felt like home. And, thank you SO much for such a hassle-free accommodations option for our vacation ... booking with you was just so easy! Next time, we will plan to spend 3 weeks, rather than 3 days - your condo was just the perfect get-away, yet close enough to visit the volcano and enjoy the quaint little towns of Pahala and Naalehu. It was especially nice to be greeted upon our arrival to a couple of cold beers for us and a can of POG for our son - and the huge delicious bag of coffee was a godsend! As a matter of fact, we went to tour the Kau Mill, and bought 3 more bags to take home and several more for gifts - DELICIOUS! Also nice was a cupboard full of spices and oil and vinegar and toothpicks and all those little extras that make cooking for yourself on vacation so much easier. I ended up grilling a few rib eye steaks one night, and all of us agreed that we had never had better in a restaurant, and certainly not with THAT view!! Honestly, we could easily spend every morning for the rest of our lives having our coffee and fresh pineapple on your patio ...

Mahalo for being such a wonderful part of our vacation!

Everything I hoped for, and MORE!

Thoroughly enjoyed my 5 nights at Punaluu. I had never booked a VRBO before, so the process was all new to me, and this particular unit was a new listing, with no reviews (yet). Owners Jeff & Xenia however were extremely helpful, efficient, and forthcoming with every inquiry that I made in advance of my arrival. Once there, I was totally impressed with the unit. It is incredibly well equipped with high quality bedding, kitchen utensils, glassware, various sets of dishes, and every amenity one would need - and more! Although I was out sightseeing each day and did not spend much time at the unit, it definitely felt like "home" every evening. I've never seen so many stars in the sky! The location is perfect for those wanting to see the southern and eastern part of the island - not too far to drive to the volcano area - a must see! If you want to see the turtles nearby at the black sand beach, be sure to go in the afternoon - they're sure to be there - lots of them!
Being a single lady, I felt 100% safe at the unit regardless of the time of day/night. This was my 1st trip to the big island, but it won't be my last - thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Punaluu, and was most impressed with how attentive both Jeff & Xenia (hosts) were.
Thank you both!

Hale Ke Kai is located in the Colony One condominiums at Sea Mountain Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. Punaluu Black Sand Beach is a few minutes walk away. Punaluu offers swimming and snorkeling at one of the 'Top Ten Black Sand Beaches in the World.' Colony One is surrounded by the southernmost golf course in the United States and also has tennis courts minutes away. There are day hikes along the coast where you can see the beautiful coastline of Ka'u with a mountain backdrop provided by Mauna Loa. There are many archaeological sites and petroglyphs (Pre-contact drawings carved in the lava) along the coastal trail. The nearby town of Pahala is about 10 minutes (East or 'Hilo side' as the locals say) away and has a small convenience store, bank, Post Office, and Pharmacy. Pahala is an old sugar plantation town and still has the local flair that other towns can only imitate. A short drive from Pahala is the Ka'u Coffee Mill recognized as one of the best roasteries in the world. The Mill is a must visit for every lover of coffee, macadamia nuts, or beautiful artwork. Kathleen Kam's wonderful scenes of Ka'u adorn the Guest Shop and the staff provide free tours of the Coffee Mill, Roastery, Drying Area, and the Coffee Fields. Free samples are available. Continuing up the road a few minutes leads you to the splendor of Wood Valley and the Tibetan Buddhist Temple, Nechung Dorje Draying Ling. Walk the temple grounds and feel the peace of this special place.

Volcanoes National Park is only 30 minutes away with lava viewing and excellent hiking or walking trails for all levels. Next to the National Park is the town of Volcano. Volcano has a great local art center and has a number of restaurants to choose from, all the way from sandwiches at Lehua Cafe to the posh evening meal Kilauea Lodge.

Because the Big Island is...well, an island, you can also go the other way (West or as the locals say 'Kona side') to Naalehu about 15 minutes from Hale Ke Kai. Along the way you will pass Honuapo Beach Park with it's Hawaiian Fish Ponds used to catch fish with the tide in days gone by. As you go up the hill to Naalehu (or when you return to Punaluu) be certain to stop at the Scenic Point. The view is one of a kind...the longest undeveloped coastline in Hawaii and probably the world. Naalehu has a large grocery store, the Punaluu Bakery (great Malasadas), and restaurants to choose from. Head further 'Kona side' and visit South Point, the southernmost point in the U.S.. Green Sands Beach is a hike, or 4wd trip away from South Point (you can also hire local people to drive you out). Green Sands is famous for its olivine cliffs and sand and is a unique spot to swim in the shore break or dig your feet into the warm sand.

The Big Island and Ka'u abound with activities that will keep everyone in your group wanting to stay longer, and we hope that Hale Ke Kai plays an integral part of a truly memorable visit.
