Hale Kai means Ocean House and it's easy to see where it gets it's name! Private 3BR 2BA home on the Puna coast has sweet views. The spacious and breezy home provides all the comforts including satellite TV, Wifi, and an ocean view office. There's a large kitchen equipped with everything you'll need to prepare meals. Located mid-way between Hilo and Kapoho and 45 minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hale Kai is a great base for exploring the Big Island.

The space

Hale Kai means Ocean House, and it’s not hard to see how this lovely home got its name. Perched right at the edge of the ocean in the centrally located Hawaiian Paradise Park community, you won’t find many places sweeter than Hale Kai!

When you arrive at the home, you’ll enter into the great room, where you’ll be impressed with the wall-to-wall ocean view. The great room combines the living room, dining room and kitchen in that convenient and friendly open floorplan that is common here in the islands. Vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans and floor to ceiling windows provide excellent flow and really maximize the space and the view. The full kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prep and serve meals, and all the large and small appliances you could hope for. The dining area overlooks the ocean, and the living room area offers lots of seating and a flat screen TV with DISH reception and a DVD player. We bet you’ll have a hard time tearing your eyes away from the ocean though – especially if you visit during whale season! This part of the coast is very popular with the migrating humpbacks.

A hallway leads to the back of the house where the bedrooms are located. The master bedroom offers a queen bed and a full ensuite bathroom. There’s a second queen bedroom, and a bedroom with twin beds as well.  You’ll also find a second full bathroom, a laundry room, and a den with a desk and a fantastic ocean view - for those who much work while they visit it doesn't get much better!

Step outside through the sliding glass doors and fall in love with the huge shady lanai that envelops the house. There are plenty of lounge chairs for chillaxing. A second dining table overlooks the ocean and provides your outdoor dining option. No better spot to sink into some freshly grilled fish, local fruits and veggies, or a tropical cocktail! Head down into the yard and stroll along to the ocean’s edge where you’ll find rock gardens and a bench perfectly situated for kicking back and enjoying the view.

Hale Kai is an enchanting place. The setting is spectacular, and the house is bright and airy, equipped with everything you could possibly need. Communication was amazing - every question was answered very promptly. I would highly recommend this as the perfect vacation home in the Hilo area.

If you're looking for a super clean, spacious home, in a quiet residential Hawaiian neighborhood, then this is your place. This oceanfront property was a home away from home for me and my family. The house was well stocked with ample towels. The kitchen had all the pots and pans you'd need to cook, and all the serving ware you'd need to eat it. The ocean view from most of the house was wonderful to come home to after a long day of sightseeing. The hosts were prompt in communicating with me, and their suggestions to places to eat and see was top notch. I highly recommend staying here!

This is lovely house which accommodated our 6-member family very comfortably, in a very pleasant and quiet neighborhood. The house has a wide veranda looking out over the sea. No beach, but picturesque lava cliffs just beyond the house. Warning - be cautious if you have small children, don't let them play around on the rocks above the sea. I would suggest that other guests should do their grocery shopping before coming to the house. The nearest shopping area is about 20 minutes away by car (10-11 miles), but you can find just about everything you need there (Kea'au Shopping Center), including grocery stores, coffee shops, and several restaurants.

This is a beautiful house in a great location. It has a large lanai, perfect for relaxing and watching the ocean one it is well situated between Hilo and the south coast with towns just to the north, Keauu, and south, Pahoa. 30min drive from airport and about the same down to south coast where you can take an incredible lava tour (highly recommend). If you're looking for the perfect base to explore big island, this house will not disappoint!
