COME SWIM WITH THE FRIENDLY DOLPHINS AT KEHENA BEACH - ACROSS FROM THE COTTAGES!
Oceanfront Cottage is located across the street from Kehena Black Sand Beach on The Big Island of Hawaii. You should see the amazing view from our lanai! This is the place for water lovers and those who appreciate the natural beauty that Hawaii has to offer.
This ocean front cottage is the PERFECT spot to visit Volcanoes National Park - home of Kilauea and the periodic lava flows just a short distance away. We have Hawaiian jungles, tropical rain forests, beautiful coastal views, geothermically heated ponds, snorkeling, whale watching w/ dolphins that migrate to the warm Hawaiian waters from Alaska. During the winter months, you can often see whales out in the water from our lanai just several yards off beautiful coast - in the Kehena Beach area. Many of my tenants tell me that they were able to swim w/ the dolphins as well - and you can too at the world famous 'Kehena Black Sand Beach' !
Did you know that the best and safest snorkeling area is just down the road in the Kapoho Tide pools? You can easily navigate all of these places from our chalet iatKehena Beach, it has come to be a very popular spot 'right in the center of all of these attractions'.
This comfortable, high ceiling cottage has 1 bedroom, full bath, living/dining area w/ 'food prep area'...not a full kitchen w/ sink (many people cook anyways and find it not much of a problem), but has a hotplate/ full sized fridge/microwave/blender/coffee w/ coffee maker - 'dish sink' is in utility room and a sink is attached to the Hawaiian rock BBQ w/ utensils outside etc...), If a full kitchen is needed, please look at The Whale House.
Cottage has Wi-FI internet, Direct TV, landline.
It has a queen bed, but can sleep 3 possibly 4 w/ Futon or/and couch.
For those of you who are seeking night time entertainment, check out 'Uncles Outdoor Hawaii Bar' if you want to sip a beer, listen to live Hawaiian music, eat great food and enjoy a farmers market at the same time.

Thanks for being so accommodating Susan & Andre, you have a lovely place! My wife and I stayed at their place in March, 2015. The location was tidy, homey feeling and easy to find through G Maps. Recommend staying. Bonus, at night you could hear the Coqui frogs just outside of the screened windows including the ocean waves in the distance which were located just across the street.
I great little cottage clean with cable tv and good consistent Internet. No regular kitchen but it worked out ok. A great location right across from the ocean. We did see Dolphins in the morning. We would definitely come back.
Susan was very welcoming. The lanai that you can see in the picture is very enjoyable to sit and watch the ocean through the trees. Our stay was enjoyable.
The Oceanfront cottage was a wonderful place to stay. It was clean, comfortable and perfectly located. It was such a memorable trip Susan and Andre - my wife baby boy and I left our heart in Pahoa. We'll be back ;)
We got in the area around 8 pm, called Andre and he arrived to the home just as we got there. We had two extra guests with us and Andre charged us a nominal amount and even went back home to grab us extra linen and sheets. Andre then gave us a tour of the house and provided a map of things to do in the area. There is a washer and dryer for you to do laundry. I was concerned about the air quality because of the lava flow but rest assured we didn't notice any smog and if anything the sky was super clear at night, perfect for star gazing.
All in all great host!
great stay in the pinky-orange cottage! very quiet, just you and the frogs in the night. but hey, this is nature and you will definitely love it! wonderful balcony to enjoy the breakfast in the sun. clean and comfortable. contact with the hosts was easy and andre met us at the house within 15 minutes after we called him.
we would definitely recommend it!
