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.

About Jeff S.

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

Why Jeff S. chose Punaluu

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Paradise at the southern-most point in the US

  • 5 of 5
We just spent three wonderful days at this comfortable, quiet, ocean view condo in Punaluu, Big Island. The condo was immaculate and had everything we needed for our stay. The condo area is very quiet with a great pool and spa and a nice patio with views of the golf course and ocean. We visited the famous Black and Green sand beaches and spent a lot of time hiking around Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Jeff, the condo owner, sent us invaluable local information on what to see and where to go in the area. We enjoyed the town on Naalehu a short drive away.
This condo provides a great alternative for those who want to get away from the crowds in Kona.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Just spent 2 days here. We were stunned upon our arrival at the beautiful, remote, sweeping landscape. The golf course looked spectacular on the drive in and we were very excited to see our place since our in laws booked it for us as a honeymoon gift. Checking in was SO easy. Recieved an email from Jeff with a lockbox code, punched it in, opened the condo and immediately were blissfully in our home for the next two days. Jeff was a spectacular host. There was absolutely NOTHING we needed in the condo, and very much appreciated the two Coronas in the fridge! I highly recommend this place for a quiet, well appointed, and stunningly beautiful place to stay. My only regret is not being there longer. Thanks again Jeff!!

Best Place

  • 5 of 5
We booked this condo for two nights for our daughter and son in law as part of their honeymoon on the Big Island. Booking was quick and easy on line and owner Jeff was very helpful and welcoming. Most important, they said it was the best place they had ever stayed (and both have traveled a lot). So for peace and quiet, great views, comfort, starry skies and easy access to golf, pool, coffee farm tour, South Point, and beach, do not hesitate to rent Hale Kekai. And the security deposit refund was processed the day of checkout.

Wonderful time at Punaluu

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for almost a week and had a fantastic time. The photos are accurate but don't do the setting justice, it's amazing and breathtaking to sit on the lanai and enjoy the sun, wind and seashore views, not to mention birds singing peacefully. The unit was exactly as described, very functional and carefully decorated, and it worked really well for our family of four (including two teenagers).

The black sand beach is only a short walk away and is fabulous. We saw 3-4 turtles both resting on the beach and swimming around in the rock pools (to the right of the buildings as you approach the beach) munching on algae. Our kids enjoyed hanging out down there, exploring the beach, finding shells and taking pictures.

Jeff was a great host, very helpful and welcoming, and communicated promptly and efficiently both before and after our stay.

All said, we wouldn't hesitate to come back and enjoy another week here. It was definitely a highlight of our Hawaii trip.

Punaluu Black Sand Beach
Car: recommended

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.
