Overview

About the property

2BR 2BA Wheelchair accessible, private oceanfront home half an hour from Hilo.

If you want the feeling of being on a ship without the movement, this is the place to be! Located in Hawaiian Beaches (about 20 miles south of Hilo), Hale Ehu Kai is a 2-bedroom, 2-bath wheelchair accessible vacation rental house on the Big Island of Hawaii in an area with magical views and other beautiful homes.

Relax in the hot tub on the lanai and see whales and spinner dolphins (in season). The lanai is extra wide for outdoor dining, and a lava barbecue is right out in front. The name Hale Ehu Kai (Sea Spray) is very appropriate for this home as you watch the waves splash against the rock cliffs.

You'll see unobstructed ocean views from the living and dining rooms, kitchen, and oceanfront bedroom. The living area is spacious, with beautiful floors and a tiled kitchen. Ceiling fans help keep the house cool, and the owners have thought about your comfort by providing a TV, DVD, stereo with CD, along with a collection of videos. The home has high-speed Internet and there is a washer/dryer.

The master bedroom offers a king bed, the oceanfront bedroom has a queen bed, and the living room has a double futon. There are two baths, an en suite master bath and a second bath with a Jacuzzi tub. As an extra touch, the house was built to be accessible by the disabled, with a ramp to the front door, wide interior doors, and roll-in shower.

There are many interesting areas nearby where you can go snorkeling, swim in a thermally heated hot pond, and see recent lava flows from the Kilauea Volcano. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is less than an hour away.

Beautiful cottage by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home away from home for us as we used it as home base while we explored all over the big island. Highlight was the volcano, of course, by day and by night, including biking the 4 miles from rental shops to where the lava meets the sea.

Our trip to the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed six nights in this lovely condo for our trip to the Big Island in August. We loved it! The development is right on the ocean and within walking distance to many restaurants, shops, night life, etc. It's clean, well apportioned, and parking is simple. The pool and hot tub have great ocean views, also, and everything is very well maintained. Fortunately, this unit is air conditioned because it was quite warm and humid during our visit. It's within easy driving distance of the airport and many local attractions. We highly recommend!

The property was perfect . Have never stayed in a house with so much in the kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

You House is perfect for the person that is heading to Hawaii for a relaxing stay. The Hot Tub on the deck with Ocean crashing and a Plastic glass of wine... can you ask for anything more? The property is all the pictures make it to be, and More. If I can get to Hawaii again I would stay here.

Comfortable relaxing home with beautiful ocean views and sounds of the surf at night.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect way to celebrate my husband's 80th birthday. This is the way Hawaii looked 50 years ago - lush vegetation along the ocean road. Quiet, non-touristy. Short drive into Hilo for breakfast at Ken's and a delightful dinner in Hilo at Pineapple (both reasonably priced).

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. Fell asleep listening to the ocean waves. We could watch the sunrise and sunset while watching the turtles right in front of our Lanaii. The location was also perfect for seeing all the sights on the Hilo side of the island. We would love to come back.

Excellent Stay

  • 4 of 5

Everything about our stay was easy, from the on-line reservation, communicating via email with the owner/hosts, the detailed instructions that they sent, getting to and into the house, and closing up. Hart even called at the start of our stay to check in with us and offer suggestions for local eats and things to do.

A couple of things to be aware of:

This is a ocean front home, very, very ocean front, as in walk twenty feet away from the back of the house and your feet will be wet. Ocean front homes take a beating from the salt spray and weather. So that means you will see some rust and corrosion on the door frames and windows. That does NOT mean that the house is dirty or poorly maintained. That's just the way it is with a home so close to the salt spray

There is no air conditioning at the house, so don't go searching for a thermostat. We stayed there in late March and had no need for AC. The ocean breeze cooled the place quite nicely.

The house is in Hawaii, a tropical island, so bugs are a fact of life. We saw a few during our stay, but no means were we overrun. Clean up the kitchen and eating areas carefully, do not leave open food on the counters and it will be fine. We never had any problems in the bedroom.

It's in a quiet neighborhood, away from nightlife. Good restaurants, stores were an easy 30 min drive away, and the location was well situated for seeing Hilo and the area north of there, as well as Volcano National Park, and the Kalapana area. If you're interested in being in tghe thick of things, this is not the location for you. If you're wanting a quite neighborhood, with killer ocean views, and a very comfortable house, you will be right at home.

The house is very well stocked with everything that you will need; a fully equipped and functional kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms. We are not handicapped in any way, but for those that have mobility impairments, the house seems very accommodating in that regard.

All-in-all it was great place to stay.
