About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath home, with hot tub and style

Aloha and Welcome to "Hale Kukui Ola" (House Full of Light), the perfect place to spend your vacation on the east side of Hawaii Island.

As you first drive up to Hale Kukui Ola you can't help but be impressed by the beautiful gardens that greet you. Some of the unique and special qualities of this home are the expansive lanai with ocean and mountain views, a four-person Jacuzzi situated in a private setting among beautiful vegetation, a deck to sunbathe, and a great outside shower with natural lava stone floors.

Wonderful natural light floods the home from the many windows throughout, hence its name "House Full of Light". When you enter Hale Kukui Ola's second-floor main living area, you'll notice the inviting open floor plan and dramatic cathedral ceilings accentuated with stylish island decor. The living room offers a comfortable place to entertain and relax, including a TV/DVD with Netflix access.

A lovely kitchen, for those that enjoy cooking, complete with stainless steel appliances and all the cookware you will need to prepare some wonderful meals. You have the option of indoor dining or dine outdoors on the lanai and take in the incredible Puna sky. The master bedroom is here too, offering a brand new King-sized bed plus a private master bath. On the third level is a loft with a Queen platform bed that can also double as an office. The ground-floor suite provides another living, dining area, kitchen and a Queen size bed with an additional full bathroom.

Relax in the hot tub after the day's activities or enjoy the expansive night sky filled with stars! There is an outdoor shower to cool you down or rinse off after enjoying the beach or a hike. Head back upstairs to the expansive lanai and enjoy the never-ending ocean view or work on your tan!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time staying at this house. The area was very scenic and the house was just as the pictures showed. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful and amazing location for adventures

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. We were impressed by the size, amenities, and best of all the hot tub was amazing after long days of hiking and adventuring. It’s very nice that it’s so close to the lava flows and volcano National park and beaches in the area. I would definitely stay again in the future.

A great home away from home! Well equipped & homey. Beautiful flora & flowers everywhere. Great set-up for 2 couples to enjoy both privacy & yet togetherness. Loved our time here. Many memories to treasure!

“Hale Kukui Ola” is just a 5 min drive to the (clothing optional) Kehena black sand beach, where if you're lucky you can swim with the spinner dolphins. The home is a 15 minute drive to “Ahalanui Beach Park” (a naturally warmed 95 degree seawater pond) as well as Wai Opae Protected tide-pools in Kapoho where you will find some of the best swimming and snorkeling that can be found on the east of our island. Beginning or ending your day in either of these beautiful and unique places is an experience that is not to be missed. Just 10 minutes away is Uncle Robert’s, a great place to take in the local fair, with its kava bar and local Hawaiian entertainment.

Kalapana Seaview Estates is 50 minutes from Volcano National Park, 35 minutes from Hilo airport, and 12 minutes from the quaint village of Pahoa, which has some of the best dining in our area featuring Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Italian, Tex-Mex and local Hawaiian resturants.

Old Hilo town is a must visit with its colorful farmer's markets, shopping, interesting museums to tell you all about the history of this side of the island.
