About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

This incredible location was chosen by the subdivision owner as his personal residence when initially developed. This East facing (sunrise side) oceanfront home is located on a double lot adjacent to 200 acres of lush, unpopulated state land. A great living room of 1200 square feet, 18 foot tall ceiling and several sofa groups is a wonderful gathering place. A short walk down a secret path, next to the house, takes you to the oceans edge where you can walk for miles on a lava shelf. There are pockets of black sand and tide pools on the shelf.

We have family on the Big Island.

What makes this house unique

Our house is very private, with a great view of the ocean splashing on the shore. Whales passing just off shore and pods of dolphins to swim with at the black sand beach within a 5 minutes walk. The sunrises get better and better each morning. And the stars at night are so bight you feel as if you can grab them.

The ocean view was awesome, the great room idea was good but very dark. The geckos inside were not bad and ate all the other bugs that were inside. Could not have any lights on at night because of all the bugs that came in (walls and ceiling were covered). Screens not a good fit, gaps. The lava rock shelf was a cool walk. Was old and dated. Did not have any problem with the water containment system. Liked the games that were left to use.

Breath Taking Views! Wonderful for groups. Plenty of space. We love it there!

Puna Hale is a magical place to stay! We have stayed here many times and plan to come every year. The view can't be beat. Whales pass by in season and there is a pod of dolphins that regularly feeds outside. Kehena Beach is down the road. We spend great days here cooking food for each other and feeling the Aloha on this side of the island. It is also close to the lava flows for those who are trying to check out the Earth creating itself. This year my wife and I got married on site and were able to share this special place with close family and friends. The site was able to accomadate all of us and it was a perfect day! Can't say enough about this wonderful place!

LOVED our stay, albeit too short. We could have easily stayed another week! We even enjoyed the company of the resident gecko's. The weather was perfect, the sunrise's were beautiful and the quiet was amazing.

Gorgeous, space, oceanfront, private, rest, peace, huge areas and more,more more!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love this place, this property, the location, the neighborhood and on and on and on . However, we are country people and this is like country in the tropics! It is not the resort in The Waikoloa Village and that is just one reason why we love it! Every one should know by now that even in paradise there will likely be and should be a gecko or two close by! It truly is an experience to be at this spacious family vacation home where you will not only be in Hawaii but you will feel and hear, touch, taste, and smell Hawaii!❤

Amazing magical place

  • 5 of 5

Incredible views, amazing waves! Enjoy the incredible sounds of breaking of waves and singing of frogs. The great room has sliders on all sides for wonderful breezes. Very convenient location for exploring ocean lava entry. About an hour away from VNP and Hilo. It was a perfect base for us to explore east side of the island but we really wished we budget a day or two to hang out by the house. The house and surrounding area are truly magical.
