Overview

Halaula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 4 + sofa sleeper

Lovely, clean 2 bed 1.5 bath located in local community of Kapaau/Hawi with AC and new dishwasher. Ocean view, near the community center and local activities like farmer's market with live music. Sit back and enjoy the privacy or head out to the local sites for adventure. The house is fully stocked with gear, toys, towels, umbrellas, check out the pictures. If you are building a dream home in the area and want to stay nearby, this is a great house for you. Or vacation all winter to avoid the snow.

We treat this house as our personal vacation spot and have all the amenities we could possibly need and we think you will enjoy them too. We also have orange, lime, pineapple, banana and papaya plants that produce seasonally for you enjoy.

Avoid the crowds and stay in Kapaau located near Hawi Town in North Kohala. An artsy, beautiful area still undiscovered. Local sites we enjoy include Hapuna Beach-very clean with white sand, Farmers market beneath the Banyan tree every Tuesday and Saturday, and enjoying the local restaurants, especially Bamboo.

Plus go to the harbor on weekends and watch the old dug-out canoe races along with more shops and dining.

Please call or email with any questions, we would love to hear from you!

About The Owner

We own and operate an electrical contracting business in southern California since 1982. After our first trip to Hawaii in 1988 we fell in love with the island and have traveled there many times ever since. We recently decided to buy several properties, a house in Kapaau, and 2 oceanfront condos in Kona (Kona Magic Sands, which is listed for rent also) and 8 acres in Southpoint, used for raising cattle. We decided to share the Aloha Spirit with others and have never looked back.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Hawaii

We have been to Hawaii many times and have fallen in love with the islands. We chose this house in particular because it gives us the local Hawaii without the touristy feel. It is a great size for us and a couple of friends. The house has AC which we love and we keep the vegetation trimmed back to allow breezes and prevent mosquitoes.

What makes this house unique

Air conditioning! Dish washer, lots of beach gear, bbq, local vibe, private house, ocean view, nice community, great to sip coffee on the lani while eating freshly picked fruit and watch the geckos walk by!

Charming place with all the amenities of home!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, daughter, and I spent a wonderful week in this charming home! The place was exactly as the posting and owner explained (well, even better) and definitely exceeded my expectations. The owners are SUPER responsive and I felt like I could ask anything I needed. The home was clean, organized, and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The Kapaau and Hawi area were so welcoming and full of friendly people. I felt like I got to see what it'd really be like to live in Hawaii rather than just visiting. The owners gave me plenty of great recommendations (Bamboo Restaurant being one - it was great!) and we stumbled upon plenty of other great finds (Sushi Rock was delicious!). This area of the Big Island is very different - much more jungle/rainy than beachy. It was great for exploring and hiking and seeing a different side of Hawaii. Plus, there are beautiful beaches if you take the scenic drive down the coast.

Honestly, I couldn't recommend this place enough. It's everything you look for when renting a vacation home, especially with such friendly, helpful, and accommodating owners!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We've been to the big island before & stayed in touristy Kona so we wanted to explore other areas. The house was located in the perfect spot to explore the north coast & interior. Cute small towns, fun shops, nice parks & beaches & plenty of activities. The house had everything we needed to feel at home, was very comfortable and we felt safe. It is in a housing development so the down side was barking dogs. In our morning walks around the neighborhood we realized that every family has at least one dog. Since we were gone exploring most of each day, the only annoyance was in the evening but it didn't interupt our sleep.

Make yourself at home !

  • 4 of 5

Finding a clean, comfortable, fair priced and well appointed home is critical for enjoying ones time while vacationing...and The Todd residence meets that standard . We enjoyed our time there and do not hesitate to recommend this accommodation. The sounds of a neighbourhood are evident, but not overbearing. The extra amenities provided is a nice touch and all worked well. Will stay at this home if a visit to the Kappau region arises again ...... G& N

Great vacation home in Kapaau

  • 5 of 5

Nice, easily accessible house that is exactly as advertised. Comfortable beds, excellent shower, roomy living space and all the appliances, cooking utensils, and dishware you need in the kitchen. What more could you ask for? How about several water toys, a cooler and beach chairs available for your use? Finish it off with a reasonable price and reliable, easy to work with owners and you have a vacation home you'll want to return to.

A GREAT house but.....

  • 3 of 5

The house is fantastic! It has everything and I mean everything. From the best TV I have ever seen to a juicer! It is in a great location too. Easy to get to places all over the island.

Has a large orange tree in the backyard. We picked about a dozen every day and put that juicer to good use. Best orange juice ever!

Now for the but ...... unfortunately the houses on both sides of the house and directly across the street have very LOUD CONSTANTLY barking dogs. Every one of our 60 mornings (as in 5:00a.m.), afternoons and nights (until midnight) we were serenaded by the dogs for hours on end.
