About Chad

Chad and Sue are in there middle years and have lived on the Island for over 25 years. We have been managing Aloha Lani for many years and do all of the yard work on our 3 acres. We do the house keeping for the rental ourselves so every detail is taken car off. This keeps us very busy but we love it.

We gather fruit from our trees every morning and fell blessed to live here. We love sharing

our bit of paradise with our guest.

Chad purchased this house in 1996

Why Chad chose Pahoa

Just a 4 minute walk down our drive to the ocean and a beautiful and pristine undeveloped coastline owned by the State that runs miles in either direction. It is much like when the Hawaiians lived here. We can walk to a Black sand beach about a mile from us. The location and feeling of old Hawaii

is why we are on this property.

What makes this house unique

Privacy in a beautiful setting with an ocean view. You will be staying in a comfortable home on 3 tropical landscaped Acres located just 800 ft from the ocean an easy walk down our drive way. There you will find miles of undeveloped coastline that looks just like it did when the Hawaiians lived in this area. Original rock walls that they built are still visible. At our drive way entrance the coast road is covered over by a grove of very old kamani trees to crate one of the best photo opts to be found on Island. It has been used by many artiest over the years. The felling of old Hawaii is very much alive around us something that cannot be found in a subdivision type of setting. This is what makes our are and place special.

We love to share this with people because they love being here.

a week of total relaxation and FUN

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult son and myself recently spent a week at Chads Place. Our purpose for this trip was to look for property in the Hilo & Pahoa area and also take a much needed vacation at the same time. This vacation rental is in the perfect location on the coast. We sat outside in the morning drinking our coffee, smelling the wonderful fragrance of the beautiful tropical landscaping, listening to the birds and watched the local wildlife, then we would take a walk along the ocean, and I must mention watching the shooting stars at night. Everything we needed and liked to do was within 15-20 minutes walk or drive away, the tide pools to snorkel in, warm swiming pond, black sand beach, Valcano, the Lava flows, dinning and shopping in Pahoa & Hilo. At the end of the road is a store, cafe, and the friendliest little outdoor bar I've ever been to. The house itself was great, very clean, big bathroom, the beds were comfortable, great kitchen , washer & dryer, and a nice media room for the rare times we used it for watching TV. The hosts Chad and Sue are delightful. We plan on being regular guests. I will recommend Chads place to everyone.

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chad and Sue's property for a week following 10 days at a 4 star resort in Kaua'i. Our goal was to decompress, relax and feed our senses. Goal accomplished! Aloha Lani is a hidden gem, out of sight and sound of the road and neighbors. As promised, we were surrounded by breathtaking ocean views and lush gardens, with Chad and Sue within calling distance to answer questions and offer recommendations (THANK YOU for recommending Hilo Bay Cafe, Sue!). They even gifted us with fresh, ripe lemons and avacodos grown on the grounds. The location was ideal, both as a place to soak up the Aloha spirit, and as a home base after travels around the island. We fell asleep every night to cool breezes and sounds of nature, and awoke each day still agog at the beauty right outside the windows. We heartily recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from it all! Mahalo, Chad and Sue!

Amazing property, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Aloha Lani in Feb with our 10 month old baby. The house was impeccably clean, with clear instructions for everything and felt homey and welcoming.

The location is great as it is removed from the "touristy" area of the island, yet close to enough to activities like black sand beach and a tide pools for snorkeling. It is about a 45 min drive to Hilo and Volcano National Park.

Chad and Sue were onsite, super helpful and very accommodating. Such a nice and friendly couple!

This is a great home to relax and enjoy the beauty of the big island. We would highly recommend it and would stay here again!

beautiful place, great location, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Chad and Sue were gracious, informative, and kind. We were impressed by how much they had done in the past 5 years to move off the electric grid. The site is wonderful, the house is great, and the location made it easy to get to good snorkeling. The fruit and vegetables they provided were super - and there were so many, we had to leave food behind. Thanks for another great stay!

Beautiful setting & plenty of Aloha

  • 5 of 5

The house worked really well for our family of four and our little girls enjoyed exploring the large grounds and seeing the many different plants. Chad and Sue were very welcoming, helpful and generous with fruit from their many trees. The location is definitely secluded, but it was very easy to get to Pahoa and Puna's many sights. A lovely stop during our vacation!
