Aloha! I am Maryann. I would love to offer and share our beautiful newly renovated vacation rental 'Hale La'a' on the Island of Hawaii in the Sacred town of Kapaau with you. In Hawaiian, 'hale' means house and 'la'a' means sacred.
Hale La'a is conveniently located in walking distance to shops, parks, restaurants and galleries. King Kamehameha Park is right across the street. It has a 25 Yard outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, skateboard park, children's playground, picnic tables all with an view showcasing Haleakala on Maui, Alenuihaha Channel and more! The Kohala born Kamehameha conquered the Island of Hawaii and went on to unify the Hawaiian Kingdom. This sacred site is a few miles from our 'sacred space' Hale La'a and a block away from the original statue of King Kamehameha. Every year there is a big parade that passes our place on King Kamehameha day! A big celebration follows at the park across the street one block away. The triathletes also bike past our place!
The feeling at Hale La'a is peaceful as it is tucked back behind a beautiful rock wall and bamboo courtyard, where you can enjoy the serenity that Hawaii has to offer.

I sailed to Hawaii in 1985 and was lost at sea in a storm. The Dolphins escorted me to refuge in Kealakekua Bay on the Big island. A feeling of gratitude is overwhelming. Finding a place of serenity while living a simple life is a gift. I feel a deep connection to this special Island rich in history and spiritual 'Mana'
I am a licensed massage therapist . I have been passionate about aromatherapy since 1980 and created a spa line called Hananaia-meaning 'to have great love for the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin.' I love the 'aina' (land)- My husband planted 1000's of Koa trees and we dream to reforest it with sandalwood trees and healing gardens. I see this Island becoming a model for the world in a renewable and sustainable way . I live near the Waipio lookout with my Husband Markus who is sculptor/artisan, my 85 years young mother, 3dogs, and 6 goats.
The beautiful sculpted Rock wall fronting Halela'a looks like a wave . It was built by my surfer husband Markus and our beloved friend Geno. We fell in love with King Kamehameha Park across the street with a swimming pool and tennis courts! The feeling of Kapaau is magic!. I love meeting people and welcoming them with the Aloha spirit.
These days many people need to feel a deeper connection to self , spirit and purpose. Halela'a offers a safe and sacred space for this journey. It also enhances creativity for artists, writers, musicians, and dreamers of all types. It has a magical feeling and joyous energy that has a healing affect on ones spirit . It also satisfies the adventurer while nurturing the creative energies !
Loving the feeling, beauty, and majesty of 'Old Hawaii' Kapaau is a sacred Place rich with History and Mystery. It has the quaintness of a small town, yet is filled with many conveniences. This is a great refuge for the adventurer. We fell in love with the town, the people, and the spiritual nature of it.
This part of the Island is beautiful, and at it's end of the road is the lookout to magical Pololu Valley where Rainbows are abundant. This rich and lush part of the Island is recharged by waterfalls-ocean waves, and rolling meadows with tropical breezes carrying the fragrant smells of flowers and plants. We love King Kamehameha park, all the gorgeous trees, and the community unity..
It is a 'Home away from Home!'The Loving feeling and comfort of the place is very welcoming. You will enjoy looking out the peaceful-tropical garden/orchard in the back yard while eating breakfast-sipping your favorite beverage or resting in the serene green bedroom. Having the Hananaia massage Hale right on property is very convenient as well.
It allows one to be a guest and not feel like a 'tourist' and more like 'ohana' or 'family.' We can 'Malama' or take care of you while experiencing a joyous healing and peaceful retreat and adventure! There is a local farmers market every Saturday under the banyan tree close by with fresh organic fruits and vegetables! The Couches and beds are very comfy and it is tastefully furnished . One guest commented that is she felt like she was staying in a Zen temple.
Picnic and dip at Keokea Beach Park and Lighthouse for seasonal wave riding- (experienced surfers only) . Feel the magic of Pololu Valley for beautiful hiking trails, ocean, beach with panoramic and spectacular views and rainbows. Enjoy amazing sunsets !
