Ocean View Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Check out the pictures. Our rates include taxes (13.25%). License W25304977

Your private retreat is located on one acre with more than eighty varieties of tropical and ornamental trees and plants.

Wake up to birds singing at sunrise, sit on the lovely lanai, listen to music and gaze at the ocean while sipping your favorite morning beverage.

Hale Luana comfortably sleeps two adults with a queen size bed. There is also a twin bed which doubles as a sofa in the living room area. The separate bath house has a shower, bath linens, soap, shampoo, cream rinse and a First Aid kit. The kitchen is fully equipped (dishes, cookware, glasses, etc) and has a coffee maker, toaster, microwave, under counter refrigerator and gas range with oven. There is also a barbeque grill on the side lanai. We provide Ka'u or Kona coffee and sugar. The dining area has a table and 4 chairs. A TV and DVD is provided with many movies and some music CDs available to our guests as well as WIFI. We provide snorkel gear, beach chairs & mats, coolers, boogie boards and beach towels for our guests' use. Parking is free and we deliver your luggage to your door.

There are grocery stores, restaurants, a gift shop, post office and business services just a few blocks away. We also have horse shoe pits onsite.

We live onsite, about 50 yards above your private retreat. We are readily available to our guests to make recommendations, give directions to island attractions, tour the property or just 'talk story'.

Ocean View is a growing rural community known for its star filled nighttime skies. You won't find heavy traffic or bright city even a traffic light. It is conveniently located halfway between the wonders of the Kilauea Volcano and the tourist crowds of Kailua-Kona. There are many great adventures for day trip excursions including white, black & green sand beaches and the active Kilauea Volcano. Along your journeys you can stop at local farmers’ markets, visit coffee mills or a Buddhist temple and experience much of the old Hawaii flavor… or as we call it, the “real” Hawaii'.

About Ron Gall and Karen Powell

Ron was born and raised in Oregon. Karen was raised in Michigan before moving to Oregon. We retired and moved to the Big Island in 2011. We finished building Hale Luana in June of 2014. It is a labor of love and we will always be adding landscaping and gardens for our guests' enjoyment. We love meeting our guests who have come from around the world and sharing the beauty of our island paradise.

Ron Gall and Karen Powell purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Ron Gall and Karen Powell chose Ka'u District

We bought this property because the weather is perfect at this 2200 Ft elevation; the view of the Pacific Ocean & South Point; and the multitude of mature ornamental and fruit trees and plants.

The property is located in a small town yet within access to so many island attractions. Easy day trips include South Point, Kula Kai Caverns, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Akaka Falls, Umauma Falls and City of Refuge as well as Kona and Hilo.

What makes this bungalow unique

You can spend time at the beaches, Kilauea Volcano, botanical gardens, farmers' markets, or explore lava tube caverns. Ocean View has good eateries, grocery stores, business office, gift store and other amenities without the traffic and crowds of Kailua-Kona or Hilo.

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing 2 weeks at this little "ohana". It is such a cozy, inviting retreat....we didn't want to leave.

The cottage is well stocked, the coffee was delicious, the shower always hot, the nights were quiet, we slept like babies. It was very easy to feel at home here.

Ron and Karen are two of the loveliest people we have ever met on our travels and we will look forward to spending time with them again.

Life saving!

  • 5 of 5

I am so grateful to the owners for allowing me to rent their lovely little cottage on such short notice. It allowed me unwind, de-stress, and face another day! I will never forget them and their hospitality.

Peaceful stay in new, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cottage for two nights at the end of our 9-night circumnavigation around the Big Island. It's convenient for activities to the south(black sand beach, Kau Coffee Plantation) and activities toward Kailua-Kona. Unless you plan to cook there aren't many dining options close by in Ocean View. We got pizza our first night at Ocean View Pizzeria, only ate half and saved the rest for the 2nd night. Since we spent our full day to the north, we ate a hearty lunch at Annie's Burgers. Drive to airport in the morning(school buses and general morning traffic) took 1 hr 40 min.

The cottage is brand new and well appointed; the bathhouse is detached w/shower,sink,toilet. Cottage sits down hill from owner's house and parking is in front of their house. Ron will haul your luggage to/from car so

you'll just have a short walk through their lovely garden to the cottage. WIFI was very weak and nearly unusable but I think the owners are working on fixing this.

Lovely landscaping, great service

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were always available and provided great service--carting luggage to cottage, emptying garbage, bringing clean linens, etc. My daughter and I felt very cared for in this lovely new ohana with a lanai overlooking the ocean. It was in a nice neighborhood and felt very private. Parking is up by the owner's home so a short walk down a driveway and a path is required. The exercise was good for us! The price was also very reasonable.
