About Ted Powell

Kim & Ted plan to retire to their lovely home in Kaloli Point in a couple of years. Meanwhile we are listing our home as a vacation rental so others can experience Hawaii in a natural setting. Ted enjoys woodworking and has just built a beautiful new lanai off the living room. Kim enjoys playing golf and there are many courses on the Big Hawaii (Big Island Golf Tip: When you play golf on a side of a volcano the ball only roles in one direction!). Kim also enjoys salt or fresh water fishing. We are most proud to have recently become grandparents! We look forward to taking our grandson to the Hilo Ice Cream stand and the 'What's Shakin' smoothy stand in a couple of years so that he can experience all the unique Hawaiian fruit flavors! Ted enjoys tinkering on his antique cars on the mainland. He shipped over his 97Ford F150 a couple of years back and we enjoy driving around the island with the windows down enjoying the freshest, cleanest air in the world! While at the house Ted likes to run (while Kim bikes) along the cliffs of Hawaii Paradise Park. He also enjoys reading at the homes peaceful setting and plans on writing his 'bucket list' novel there in the future. He also enjoys driving up to Volcanoes National Park for a Ranger tour or listen to a guest speaker in the visitor center auditorium. He also enjoys visiting the Lyman Museum in Hilo where they have guest lecturers speaking twice per month. When not in Hawaii, Kim and Ted live and work on their 100 year old home on Galveston Bay with their senior dog and finicky cat.

Ted Powell purchased this house in 2011

Why Ted Powell chose Hilo

We preferred the wet side versus the dry desert (Kona) side of the Big island. The rainfall keeps the area vegetation lush and colorful and supports the large bird population. There are many farmers markets that have locally grown fruits and vegetables. Our home is on a agricultural zoned 1/2 acre property that offers privacy and a peaceful getaway after a long day visiting the popular island attractions.

What makes this house unique

Our family always preferred vacationing in rural settings where we could enjoy hiking, biking and relaxing in beautiful natural settings. When we visited the Big Island in 2010 we fell in love with the beautiful flora and fauna that varies greatly over short distances and different altitudes (you can travel from tropical sea level to 9200 ft in less than a hour!). The air is so fresh and the aloha spirit of the island residents is infectious!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us a piece of paradise. We all loved everything in Hawaii. The end of Hwy 130 was particularly interesting. Civil Defense allowed us to park and walk around. We talked with a resident who lived on Hwy 130 now covered with lava. Black sand beach in Hilo (Richardson Park) had lots of turtles and fun swimming for the kids. The volcano was active. We could see the glow from the end of the road. The luau at the Courtyard Marriott in Kona was great! We liked the avocado tree, guava trees and the pineapples growing in the yard. I can only imagine the adventures Kim & Ted's 1 yr old grandson, Ryan, will have here as he gets older. Our grandson commented that Ryan is lucky to have a place like this to explore! Love your brother Allen and Mariette from Weimar Tx

sight seeing in Hilo

We enjoyed our stay in this house. It is quite clean, well equipped for everything we needed. Location is convenient to access Volcano park and Hilo city. we did not like the water available to drink, recommend getting bottled water. It is quiet and peaceful. liked the sounds of birds chirping in the morning. Kaloli point is further from the house than we imagined still beautiful.

Owner's Response: Homes outside of Hilo city have drinking water supplied by roof catchment tanks (*) or wells that tap into the large fresh water aquifer under the big island. We have a licensed well that is tested and is safe to drink. The water has neutral Ph (7 Ph) but more dissolved minerals and a higher salinity (due to proximity to ocean) than treated Hilo city water. As the salinity impact on taste might not be agreeable to our guests, we have 3, 5 gallon water containers that can be easily filled for free at the county treated water fill station on the main highway to our home. A hand pump is provided that can be easily attached to the container for home dispensing. Of course the third option is for our guests to purchase bottled water when they are at the food market.
(*) Roof catchment tank water is acidic (Ph~4) and has plant based bacteria that requires UV light sterilization. We also have this UV system even though our well water test results have shown no detectable bacteria.

wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
This house was well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our vacation! It is a great price and nice area to stay. Close to sights you will want to see. Yard is beautiful!
We really enjoyed the way we could relax and cook on the BBQ. Washer and dryer was
handy so we could pack less clothes! This was our third stay in a house and this was the best!

Very nice people

  • 5 of 5
My review is not for the place but the owner, Ted. We had booked his place for 2 nights. However, unfortunately Hurricane Iselle hit Big Island on east side a day before we were supposed to move to Hilo.
Ted and his local contact not only were prompt in answering my calls and emails but also called me to inform that since they have lost electricity after the storm, it is better for us not to move to his house. He also refunded my rental money immediately. I found him a fair person and would definitely like to stay in his place when I visit big island the next time.

Owner's Response: Aloha,
We have experienced several hurricanes on the mainland and have witnessed the devastation that they have wrought on friends lives and property. Hurricanes and their immediate aftermath are certainly no place for visiting guests. We contacted and refunded 100% of guests reservation payments until (1) we were certain that local roads and services were fully reopened and restored, and (2) our caretaker and cleaning service were able to inspect and prepare our property to insure that it fully met our standards. We also contacted guests a couple of weeks out from arriving to alert them to the situation and updated them until everything was back to normal. Fortunately our area and home did not sustain any significant damage and those guests were able to stay at Hale Manu Kaloli Point. Mahalo, Ted & Kim

A quiet retreat in paradise!

  • 4 of 5
Ted's home in Paradise Park is a quiet island hideaway even though it is in the midst of many homes. When we visited for a week (March 29-April 5) it was so quiet and peaceful. Just south of Hilo, about 3 miles off the main road, the house is tucked away on a lot off the road. There is a wide variety of tropical plants and palm trees that are just gorgeous on their nicely landscaped property. A short set of stairs up to the main door and lanai and you are home. The lanai looks east so it was sunny and warm for coffee each morning. The resident gecko checked in on me each day. The kitchen was nicely stocked with everything you need to work with for vacation rental, the bedrooms were clean and satisfactory, the bathrooms adequate and clean. We enjoyed the second story bedroom because we could hear the pounding of waves at night. We got used to the rain at night and early mornings and then the drying off by the time we were ready for our day's outing. I just loved the peace and quiet so much. Ted's black F-150 was a great deal for the week-long rental. We took it everywhere except up to the top of Mauna Kea. Having a local's truck helped us to blend in more and not feel like tourists. Ted's local contact who delivered the truck and the keys was a prince of a fellow. We loved him and appreciated everything about him. The rental was a great deal. We appreciated all the guide books that were available for our reading and preparing our day trips. A short ride over to Kaloli Point was a highlight. I will never forget the waves and the iconic black lava shoreline. Thank you, Ted, for a wonderful visit to Hale Manu of Kaloli Point.

Peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5
Aloha Ted,
Thank you for the use of the house. I was really peaceful, quiet and beautiful. We walked to the cliffs every morning and had our coffee watching the deep blue crystal waters crash onto the lava cliffs. So many sights to see and it was great to cook breakfast before heading out on our adventures. When we come back to Hawaii Big Island we will certainly want to bring our two teen daughters with us.
Mahalo,
Debbie and Scott

Owner's Response: Our guests often comment about the beauty and peacefulness of our home. This along with the Aloha nature of the island residents can make your island visit a relaxing journey. We bought this house as our future retirement home where I plan on writing a book about my experiences and learning’s in historic building preservation (Google savethepavilion and read about the saving of the mid century modern 1956 Sylvan Beach Pavilion ). I enjoy relaxing on our lanai with coffee in the AM and wine as the sun sets, reading books and organizing my thoughts on any number of subjects including the islands unique geology and ecosystem. I love walking and running for miles along the coastal roads and trails to keep me fit, and visiting the local farmers markets that offer healthy local produce for our nourishment. I'm hoping my monthly rental offering will attract other writers who would receive beneficial stimulation from this unique environment.

Trail head to Shipman Beach (1/2 day hike)
Car: necessary

Only 31 miles to Volcano National Park where there are many trails including one through a lava tube!

Local hikes:

There’s a couple of amazing walks you could take every day here. You can walk the trails along Kaloli Point to view the lava cliffs. Stay far back from the edge as the surf can knock you over - remember never turn your back to the ocean!.

If you want a 1/2 day picnic hike follow the Puna trail at end of Beach Rd to Shipman Beach. Make sure to take a couple of water bottles per person and make sure to wear shoes you don’t mind getting a little muddy. It’s a good hour and a half walk for two fit adults so plan accordingly. Remember to always follow the left-most trail. Trust me, you cannot get lost in these woods. Just keep going until you see a beach and it will be awesome.

Area Dining recommendations:

Hilo Bay Café: It’s as close to fine-dining as you’ll find on this side of the island, complete with prices. This is actually a pretty good place to get a drink.

Kaleo’s (in Pahoa): This was the second restaurant we found that had a Mediterranean bent. Whatever, it also has a cool regional menu with local caught fish, interesting only-in-Hawaii flavor combos, and awesome portions. You’re getting a good value with this menu.

Farm & Markets:

Puna Girl Farms: Do not miss this awesome place. Was once a completely destitute abandoned macnut farm. With 15 year’s worth of love, labor, and pain and it is now a thriving farm dealing mostly with macnuts but happily sprinkled with diverse regional fruits as well. The incredibly warm and open owner, Cherie, is worth the trip to the big island just to hear her story. She’s amazing. Trust us. She’ll have some fruit for sale and chances are her starfruit tree is overflowing and she’ll BEG you to come on in and pick as many as you like.

Maku’u Sunday Market: Go here. Every Sunday. You can find most of your food needs met here as well as some cool local “other stuff”. Treasures to be found here. Great food court too.

Uncle Rogers’ Wednesday Night Market: This is a half-market, half-party. You can purchase beer there ( for PBR… that works..) or you can bring your own with you. You can also get a stone-fired pizza, some lilikoi fried chicken n waffles, some crazy kombucha on tap, etc etc etc. You’ll definitely hear live music. If you know anyone in the Puna area, you’ll probably see them here.

Pools & Beaches:

It’s that beautiful. It’s amazing snorkeling or the most surreal picnic you’ll ever have.

Papalokea - Green Sand Beach: This is one of those places that will not exist forever. South Point Road is located between mile markers 69 70 down highway 111. From there, you can take a left which brings you to a cool parking area from which you walk a moderate 2.5 mile hike up and down some craggily volcanic landscape. At the end of that walk is one of the only 2 actually green sand beaches in the world. It’s, eh… green. It’s pretty nice. The water there is great, swimming is awesome. Also, chances are there is a guy or two with some Polaris off road vehicles to shuttle you there mainly because Polaris rides are pretty fun.

Punalu’u – Black Sand Beach: This is the tourist friendly, definitely going to see a sea turtle on black sand, beach. Amazing snorkeling here. This is mostly a community beach so be respectful of the local folks. Maybe bring some cash and buy their way too expensive cans of coke or something. It’s really the only actual industry some of those folks have available to them.
