Kealakekua Bay House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Hear and see the ocean at Hale Lana....at peaceful Kealakekua Bay....a small, quiet, low key shoreline community. It is situated among a mix of local style and unique newer homes. It is an ideal retreat for couples or honeymooners. Views and sounds of the waves!
Only steps (a one minute walk) to enter the crystal clear water at the palm lined beach, across the bay from the Captain Cook monument, for the best snorkeling in the islands! The pristine bay is a protected marine preserve providing numerous water activities and spinner dolphin sightings (sometimes around your kayak!)and whales in winter. Hale Lana is removed from noise and traffic and is fully fenced and gated for added privacy.
The home is a new, superbly crafted pole and beam house showcasing natural woods, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, Italian floor tile, new tropical furnishings, a ten jet spa tub, and large indoor and outdoor walk-in showers. The high open beam ceilings through out, the roof cupola, decking and louvred transoms are reminiscent of a boat or 'Noah's Arc', thus the name 'Hale Lana' (translated as floating house). Free secured high speed wireless internet access.
This also efficiently allows the balmy breezes and scents of the bay and surrounding plumeria trees to float through. There are ample lanais to relax in the sun or shade and take in the sounds of the waves and the 360 views of the bay and surrounding pali (mountain). It is easy to let yourself 'hang loose' at Hale Lana!
Water temperatures consistently range from 75 (in Feb) to 82 In late summer.

Why The Owner chose Kealakekua Bay
Kealakekua Bay is a very small, extremely quiet and low-key community providing the best of historic Hawaii and a pristine Marine Reserve all just steps away. My family has lived in Hawaii for more than 60 years and this is truely one of the most beautiful and unspoiled spots to live in or visit. I was fortunate to obtain a double lot in the community many years ago. And then several years ago was able to build a custom home with the help of excellent boat builder craftsmen with outstanding attention to detail.
What makes this house unique
Daily swims, just steps from the house, with dolphins and all manner of marine life. On my first visit to snorkle at Kealakekua Bay, and not more than 20 feet away, was a female humpback whale and her calf calmly swimming along! I hoped one day to be able to own a home in this very special area.
Entrance lock box with key and security code for easy check in.
Guestbook comments from the owner
November 28, Thanksgiving
We are so thankful for this wonderful, private, ocean-view home to spend a lovely week. We saw dolphins from the balcony, a turtle in the bay and a daily visit from a resident mongoose. We loved Ho'okena Beach! We went there twice and snorkeled at Captain Cook twice with kayak rental from just next to Manini Beach. Saw a cornet [coronet, an odd long, very slender harmless fish]. Ke'ei Cafe was the best local food with great owners and atmosphere. Little Manini Beach is deceptively cold, there are cold springs, but ocean is warm two yards out. A wonderful location! We will miss it! Happy Holidays.
