Update for the Volcano: I took some recent photo of our Kona Ocean and Blue Skies. The media seems to be scary, but we are located over 90 miles away from the active Volcano. My home is at the Ocean so the strong Breezes helps to keep our air clear. At times when there is absolutely no breeze we will all get the Vog ( like smog, but, from the Volcano). For us, this is all Normal, since the Volcano has been erupting since the 1980's! So, please do not hesitate to book a stay. We are at a perfect location!!
Added a few photos of May 17, 2018 at Kahalu'u Beach, as the Kilauea Volcano huge erupted, visitors enjoyed a wonderful morning at low tide.
Hawaiian- Oriental Beach House at Kahalu'u National Historical District . Hawaiian Kings and Chiefs lived here because of the location!. They loved to Surf, fish, and grow amazing gardens. Kahalu'u Beach is only a 4 minute walk , and has the only Surfing Hei'au in the State of Hawaii, where the Hawaiians prayed to the God "Akua" for Surf. 2 minute drive to "Magic Sands Beach", best body surfing beach in Kona.
Splash Pool addition, see photo!

Its great to support our local businesses, and the supermarket KTA is also a local business of 100 years. Live entertainment happens once a month.
Guest love going to the beach at least twice a day. You don't have to worry about getting a parking space. As this beach is the most popular Snorkeling beach on the entire Island, in my opinion, the State. The ocean park is absolutely a playground in Paradise, fishes galore! Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen, and get your cameras ready for some amazing life time memories.
