About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6

Hale Pali (Cliff House) is a spectacular (non-smoking) OCEANFRONT home overlooking the blue Pacific. We heartily agree with our guests who have enthusiastically stated: 'there is nothing that compares to actually being on the water' - what better way to enjoy the sound of the waves, and the smell of the sea air.

The home is beautifully and tastefully decorated and features teak furniture.

You will love cooking in the fully equipped, Rick Hartman designed, gourmet kitchen.

You can keep cool by taking a dip in our 3,000 gallon 'natural' (unheated) lava-pool or just 'chill' while lounging and sunning yourself on our small private white sand beach, you may also choose to kick back in the comfort of our shaded hammock.

If you need to stay connected you can do so via FREE WIFI.

A perfect day begins while sitting on the sea wall, sipping Kona Coffee, and looking out to sea. You will be amazed by the spectacular “blow-hole” that adds to the OCEANFRONT splendor of our seaside home.

If you are looking for 'off-the-beaten-path relaxation. We think that the serenity you will find here makes the 45 minute drive south from Kona Village very worthwhile.

About Carl Ramsey

Carl and Deborah Ramsey have resided on the Big Island for more than 35 years. They are San Francisco State Alum and moved to the islands from the Bay Area. Carl and Deb are retired after many years of rewarding work counseling in the Hawaii Island public school system (who ever thought up the idea of retirement knew what they were doing!)

Their residence is an 8 1/2 acre farm just up the mountainside from the beach house. Although the crops are not extensive, Deborah does grow some Kona Coffee.

Meeting fascinating guests from all around the planet is the best part of owning and operating Hale Pali, they say. Please come and join them along the beautiful and peaceful south kona coast.

The house is fantastic, the view is amazing. Might want to take it easy going down the mountain as the wife and daughter both experienced a little car sickness on all of the turns. Carl checked in on us a few times to make sure everything was going well. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. Loved it

We fell in love with Hali Pali! We had several day trips planned but cancelled a few as we decided we would rather stay and enjoy paradise at Hali Pali. The ocean and sunset views are spectacular.... we even spotted whales in front of the house. The clear night sky made for perfect star gazing! Loved looking out the bedroom window and seeing the beautiful ocean view the first thing each morning. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well furnished, the house and property are very clean & well maintained, the owners truly welcome with Aloha.. Loved our visit to the Big Island & Hali Pali!
