Aloha, and welcome to THE snorkeling spot on the Big Island and Hale Hui, The Oceanfront Cottage!

LOCATION, LOCATION LOCATION!!! It just doesn’t get any better than this! The Oceanfront Cottage is located in the highly desirable sunny Kapoho area where you literally walk out and into one of the most perfect and pristine protected swimming coves adjacent to the WaiOpae Marine Tidepools Marine Sanctuary and the mighty Pacific!

Hale Hui is a sweet 1 bedroom, 2 bath cottage with a large oceanfront lanai and that makes it the perfect piece of paradise that is absolutely the place to be for your relaxing Hawaiian vacation! There is additional sleeping on a foldout futon sofa in the living room and if you want to sleep outdoors, there is another futon on the oceanfront covered lanai. Fall asleep looking at the star filled skies and listening to the incredible ocean. During whale season, listen for whale song!

This protected cove is the perfect place to snorkel. It’s almost like having your own private aquarium right at your doorstep! The coral and fish viewing is incredible and watch out, you may come face to face with a green sea turtle! Enjoy the beautiful sunrises as they come up and over the ocean and flood Hale Hui, the Oceanfront Cottage with the beginning of another beautiful day.

The Oceanfront Cottage has a large lanai that you'll want to 'live' and dine on. As you can see from the photos, there's an ocean cove view from either direction. Let's say this again: The ocean views from this cottage are THE BEST! If you absolutely have to watch television in paradise, there is DISH Satellite at the cottage along with a DVD player. There is a local phone available and a washer, however, mother nature takes care of the drying for you! It’s reported that the cleanest air on the planet is right here in Kapoho!

A wonderful, tranquil, waterfront, Tidepool, swimming, snorkeling, relaxing paradise!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Myself & my wife have been renting the Oceanfront Cottage for yrs. Usually 2 to 3 months at a time. It has such a remarkable location situated on the Tidepool. The view over not only the Tidepool, but also seeing and hearing the surf, just adds to one's vacation/getaway. I tell my friends that just below the outside deck, I can swim with turtles and enjoy being in my own aquarium. To be able to see so many fish, corals, and other assorted sea life at arms length is something that you will remember FOREVER!!!

The cottage itself is cute and provides you with everything one needs to enjoy the area. Only about 35 miles from Hilo, a little over 2 hours from Kona and the volcano is about an hour away. Just 1 mile down scenic 'red road' there is a park with an acre warm pond heated naturally and kept at a perfect temperature by the surf.

There is bus service, but a car is really best to enjoy the entire Puna area.

We highly recommend a stay at the cottage if one decides on the Big Island as their destination.

Even though we live here now, we continue to rent the Oceanfront Cottage as 'OUR' very special getaway! Very enjoyable memories continue to happen here!
Seeing the constellation of 'The Southern Cross' from the deck to watching rainbows out over the water, to the fabulous sunrises and sunsets...., all...., only from this very small cluster of homes.
There is no other place like this, in the entire USA.

The cottage is perfect, and experience Aloha first hand from the management team, Mark, Ron & Jeana.

You will NOT be disappointed......
Mahalo,

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
FROM THE GUESTBOOK: Our 2nd stay here at the Hale Hui, again another wonderful stay. For a delicious meal we suggest Kaleo's in Pahoa. And for fresh delicious Thai food, we loved Blue Moon Cafe in Hilo, they also serve American food. And don't miss the Hilo Farmers Market on Saturdays and Wednesdays. We enjoyed fresh fruits and veggies from here. The resident eel keeps getting bigger it seems - we loved watching him. We enjoyed viewing the pond in the evening with flashlights. One night we saw the biggest puffer fish ever! He must have been the size of a basketball! Thank you so much and aloha! The Schulte's - California

Can't believe how awesome this place was!

Wow. We loved this and will be back. We loved that they had snorkel gear for us, and the outside bathroom was perfect for peeling off our wet gear and showering off before going in the house. So private and quiet, we barely saw anyone the whole time we were there. Unlike my past trips, this one we spent almost every day just snorkeling, enjoying cocktails and laying around. I thought after one session of snorkeling I'd be done with it, but every day we'd find something different and it just felt refreshing and relaxing to float around out there in our private tidepools. We brought our ROKU player on the off-chance it would work, and it did. There's a newer HDTV there, the ROKU player was easy to set up and we watched lots of shows on Netflix. Other than wishing there was air conditioning, we had a great time. If you venture out, on the way to civilization at the intersection of a coupla of the jungle roads, is The Hot Dog Man. Try him out--just a guy from the mainland with a hot dog cart....sometimes there, sometimes not...just like everybody else in that part of the world. We went to Pahoa for food, drove to Volcano Nat'l park one day. Also went to Kona and around the entire island in one day....but really whenever we ventured out we just couldn't wait to get back to our house. It was like having our own private island, and it was easy not to feel guilty for not sprinting out to sight-see every day when we awoke to the surf and views and our private tidepools :)

A LITTLE SLICE OF PARADISE - IN PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for our 20th Anniversary. All I can say is this is the steal of the Century! I did a lot of searching before settling on this place for out trip. We arrived w/ some trepidation – often places don’t turn out to live up to their billing. We arrived very late and in the rain, so it was nice to be able to pull up under the house to park. We had a little trouble w/ a sticky lock box, but finally got in. We were exhausted so we did a little unpacking, and then hit the sack.

The next morning we woke to a glorious view of the lagoon and the Pacific Ocean beyond. After a leisurely breakfast we lounged around a little, then decided to do a little snorkeling. The water was so clear and the fish were abundant. At that point I was already sold. We stayed for a week, snorkeled EVERY day and saw some beautiful coral, fish, turtles and even a seal. For future guests a word of advice, you need to go and explore ALL the tidal pools, it was half-way through the week before I discovered the most beautiful one. It is off to the left out through the channel and closer to the surf. It is crammed full of incredibly colorful corals – yellows, tans, purples, greens and more.

I’m usually not one for relaxing, I’m more of an adrenaline junkie, but this place was so beautiful I actually enjoyed just hanging around the house – and of course snorkeling!

Also at night, especially if there are clouds, look off to the right in the distance and you can see the glow of one of the active lava craters. One other thing, when in Pahoa here are three gems– the NY Pizza place makes a GREAT pizza, the Pahoa Fish Market (by the Supermarket) makes GREAT fried fish – the Ono was fabulous, and if in town try the Poha Berry Ice Cream at the Museum, scrumdiddlyumptious!

As others have said, if your looking for the glass and brass scene, this ain't it. In fact it's off the beaten track, you have to go to Pahoa for everything, but it's well worth it! If your looking for a wonderful relaxing place to stay - THIS IS IT!!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We can't believe how much fun we had at the Oceanfront Cottage. The snorkeling is OUTRAGEOUS! Everything we did was awesome. That part of the big island blows away everything else in Hawaii. Great scenery, cliffs, black sand beaches, waterfalls, restaurants, wonderful people and NO CROWDS!!! This was truly the BEST vacation we have EVER been on and we will be back!

Our plane was delayed and it was pitch black when we finally arrived. Finding the house and our way up the stairs would have been a nightmare had our hosts not thought to leave the lights on in the carport and on the stairs for us. It's always the little touches that ice the cake. Can't wait for our next visit!

Absolute Perfection at a wonderful price!

  • 5 of 5
I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Hale Hui so I'll just list the many many positives.. First of all, Mark and Ron made the whole experience very easy and stress free. I had questions prior to making the reservation and they answered them immediatley and thoroughly. The house and property are amazing. The location cannot be described, it really is exactly as great as advertised. The snorkeling is the best I have ever seen and the neighborhood is very safe and quiet. The house is perfect for a couple or small family, especially with second shower and bathroom that opens out to the deck. The information that Mark and Ron thoughtfully provided about sightseeing and nearby amenities was extremely helpful and really enabled us enjoy our stay to the fullest. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
