About Blaine Shultz
We lived in the California Sierra Nevada Mountains and needing a break from stressful jobs, we found the La'a Loa /Kahalu'u/Keauhou area to be the perfect place to relax, heal and enjoy friends and family. We purchased Hale Akai as a vacation rental partnership. We fell in love with the island, neighbors and Hawai'i life. In 2006 we decided that we were more than just business partners and 'married'' our homes, lives and families. We have been privileged to make lifetime friends with many of our guests, some of whom have returned twice a year since 2004!

Why Blaine Shultz chose Kahaluu
The location! We have just placed Hale Akai back on the vacation rental market after three years of sharing our home with family and friends. We have all of the benefits of living near the ocean on the beautiful Kona coast with out all of the noise and congestion of being right on the beach. After renting a home on the beach for two years, we found that being down on Ali'i drive, next to the ocean, was noisy, scary during high surf and expensive. Less than a mile from one of the best snorkeling beaches in Hawai'i, 0.2 miles from a white sand beach with amazing sunset and boogie boarding, close to shopping, public transit and centrally located on the western coast, it's the perfect location! We wanted this specific neighborhood for it's safe, peaceful and convenient location. There were few properties for sale in the area so our Realtor sent letters to every property owner in the neighborhood and we spent several vacations driving up and down the streets waiting for a home to become available!
La'a Loa, the name of this area, means very sacred and Keauhou is 'a place to return to for healing' The area has a peacefulness that stays with you. King Kamehaha III was born two miles away and this was a favorite vacation area for King David Kalakawa, his summer cottage is one mile away. Sharing Hale Akai as a vacation rental gives us a chance to give back some of the pleasure and peace this home has given our family and friends over the past 10 years. Before booking please know that our home is located in a peaceful residential neighborhood.
What makes this house unique
Hawai'i Island, known by tourists as the Big Island, is the most diverse having 11 of the worlds 13 climate zones. You can literally play in the snow and be back on the beach in just over an hour, walk in rain forests, over lava fields and actually watch lava flow.
The Kona Coast is known for it's beaches, coffee farms, cattle ranches, beautiful sunsets and peaceful, laid back atmosphere. Hale Akai is in a quiet residential neighborhood with both vacation rentals and residences.
As I sit on the lanai writing this, the palms are gently swaying and I can hear the surf crashing, doves and cardinals singing and far off in the distance the gentle sound of bagpipes from a Scottish neighbor. The sand is not the only magical part of this island!
