Naalehu Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2

Aloha! Hana Hou Cabin-Motel provides an opportunity to relax and enjoy your stay in a small town in rural Hawai'i, on the Big Island. Located adjacent to the Hana Hou Restaurant, you will not have to worry about cooking or searching for a great meal. The cabins are located midway between Kona and Hilo, in the Ka'u District.

Take advantage of staying in a town that is located in the vicinity of various places of interest, which all exude the meaning of, 'Old Hawai'i'. Ka Lae (South Point), The Green Sand Beach and Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, are amongst a few of the unspoiled coastlines here in Ka'u. Sprawling ranch lands, mountain hiking, the famous Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and the new southern section of Kahuku are only a drive away. Explore lava tubes, snorkel, tour a coffee farm or the volcano winery and buy from the source.

Ka'u is the perfect eco-tourist destination , and the cabin-motel is perfect for an overnight stay when visiting the volcano. Eliminate the long drive back to Kona or Hilo and visit the other sights in Kau the next day.

We have only two cabins. Each cabin has a private bathroom with a shower and toiletries. The studio cabin has a queen size bed and sleeps 2.The larger cabin which rents for $85 a night has a queen bed and a single bed in the sitting room and is suitable for a family or travelers requiring two separate beds. There is a lovely private yard for you to enjoy lounging in the morning sunshine or relax in the cool Ka'u breeze that flows throughout the day. Grab some breakfast from our restaurant and dine in the Gazebo out back. Sit by the Japanese Koi pond or relax at the restaurant while surfing the Internet on WiFi,or watch your favorite shows on cable TV. Meet some of the friendly folks that call Na'alehu their home as well as our friendly, hospitable restaurant staff. Each cabin is equipped with a brand new queen size bed, fresh linens and fluffy pillows.Cabin 2 is a two room suite with a queen and a single in the sitting room. Floor futon available for child. For your convenience we also provide a small refrigerator and a coffee maker, which includes the famous regional Ka'u Coffee to brew at your leisure. A small cooler is provided and free ice refills anytime the restaurant is open. We can pack a picnic lunch (additional charge) and you can use the cooler during your visit. We also have beach mats and towels for you. Special rates for longer stays are available.

Hana Hou Restaurant hours are 8 am-7 pm (M-Thurs), and 8 am-8 pm (Fri-Sat). Quiet time is 9:30 pm-7 am. Smoking outdoors only. Studio Cabin - $68 per night.... 1-Bedroom Cabin - $85 per night with an additional $15 for additional guests after two people.We accept Visa, MasterCard or Cash.

Small cabin in the middle of a sleepy town

  • 4 of 5

The place is farther from the Volcanoes National Park than I would have thought which was our primary reason for booking in the southern side of the island. The town has very little to offer if you are a morning person. Nothing opens until 8 or 9! The actual cabin was a perfect place to sleep but lacks a microwave. The beds were pretty comfortable and it was nice to have cable. Overall it worked for what we needed. It is right in between the green sand beach and the black sand beach which made for a great way to spend a morning.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the evening. Actually we do have a microwave which I point out in the property description. It is ;located in the common area between cabins. There is also a toaster oven. Thank you for staying with us. Aloha Patty

Plantation Homey!!!!

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my overnight stay @ Pattys cottage. It was super convenient to have the town restaurant right next door literally! It was maybe 100 steps out the cottage door. I stayed in cottage 2. Just right of a space for me. It could comfortably sleep 3, with one halii for another person to sleep on the floor. Thank you Patty!!! If there was one thing I would've liked was an a/c, it was hot during the day!!! Comfortable tropical cool at night though with the ceiling fan on full blast!!!! Aloha and Mahalo, Kathleen

Owner's Response: We would all love AC but the electricity for that is a lot and I don't want to raise the prices. Most folks are out all day . I should get a floor fan though, thanks for the suggestion. Please come again Aloha Patty

Quaint cottage

  • 4 of 5

Cute cottage! Very well maintained and clean. Our family of 4 stayed in unit 2. It was a little tight but we didn't mind. Patty was very friendly and nice. Easy check in and out. Definitely recommend it if you are in the area!

Great Location Between Kona and Volcano National Park

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Patty's--we arrived late, but arranged for the key to be left for us. Communication was easy and Patty was very friendly. We stayed one night while traveling between Kona and Volcano National Park, then on to Hilo. The cabin was clean and comfortable and we felt instantly at home. We will definitely be back!
