Kahikole is a 2 bedroom home on the ocean in the residential community of Hawaiian Paradise Park in Keaau, just south of Hilo on Hawaii Island. The name means “early morning sun”, for the spectacular sunrises you’ll see from this well-equipped home. The two separate bedroom suites provide excellent privacy, and the views from every room are fantastic. If you visit during the winter, you might see humpback whales just off shore!

The space

Comfortable elegance in a very private oceanfront setting awaits you at Kahikole. Enter through the lava rock wall and turtle festooned gate into your personal oasis. Designed in the round (actually 12-sided), the home provides beautiful ocean views from virtually every room.

The lower level includes two master suites, both of which offer their own en suite full bathrooms and all-around windows overlooking a spacious waterfront patio and lawn area. You can watch the surf from bed or from comfortable seating in each room. Both suites include walk in closets with generous built-in shelving.

One master bathroom includes an overhead rain shower head in its tiled walk in shower, while the other offers a combination shower/tub. A starter pack of basic amenities including soap, shampoo, conditioner, and sunscreen are provided. Full indoor laundry facilities are also found on the ground level.

Take the curving indoor/outdoor stairwell to the upper level for a 180 degree view of the ocean and surrounding points. Guests say it's difficult to ever leave the covered lanai with its comfortable seating and spectacular views.

From the lanai, enter your great room with living and dining areas, as well as a gourmet kitchen. A den and third full bath complete the second floor.

In addition to general television stations, you can check your email or watch Netflix from the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) TV or surf the internet on your own computer using the easily accessible WiFi. A Bose speaker system lets you project your own music from CD, iPhone or iPod. And, of course, the remarkable ocean views are all the entertainment many desire.

The fully equipped modern kitchen includes a Viking range, black granite counters, dishwasher, refrigerator with built-in ice maker, microwave, coffee maker, and all the cookware and tableware you need. Our spice drawer grows with each guest and includes most of the standards, along with some fun extras.

If you prefer Al fresco dining, a covered BBQ area and Oceanside table and chairs await on the ground level. While your meal is grilling, take a short stroll down the lava rock stairs to the bluff for an up close and personal view of the sea. Look closely as you could see whales, dolphins or sea turtles who frequent our bay.

We are centrally located on the windward side: 45 minutes from the Volcano National Park, 30 minutes from Hilo, and a short drive to shopping and restaurants. And, of course, we share all of our insider information about the best places to hike, snorkel, kayak, and otherwise enjoy the Big Island.

This home is wonderfully located on the bluff in Keeau. However, it is not maintained with regard to cockraches and ants and the smell of mold was awful. The cleanliness of this house needs attention as does the draining of the tubs. There are some maintenance issues with the house that need to be addressed. We have family here and have been coming to the Big Island for 20 years. We will not return to this house or rental through this host again.

Great place - looks as nice the picture. You will have an amazong view on the sunrise. The only negative is that the cliff might be dangerous for small children.

Very nice place. Great view. Very clean. Comfy beds. I visit the area 4-6 times per year....this was the nicest. I am superhost for my property on Airbnb...I would know. Great value as well. Look no further (unless you are booking the days I want in the future), this is the place.

If you arrive in dark, you may feel scared at first but once you see the place and surroundings in daylight you'll be fine. The house is beautiful with awesome views of ocean and sunrises. It's on paradise drive and it sure is a paradise place.

A quiet retreat right on the ocean. The sunrise is truly lovely.

We really enjoyed our stay at kahikole. Great location for exploring the big island. Loved the spacious living area and made good use of the kitchen. So relaxing to sit out on the deck and watch the massive waves crash against the cliffs. Plenty of room for our family of three. Highly recommend kahikole.

Great place to stay about a 30 minute drive into Hilo and about 40 minutes to volcano park. Gorgeous ocean views from every room. Only downside is the lack of AC in the rooms, and a few mosquitos on the deck. Would definitely stay there again.
