About This Listing
Whale House has a huge wraparound lanai providing stunning ocean views. This 1400 square foot house includes a full size kitchen with a dishwasher, two identical master suites each with King Size beds, free kayaks, golf clubs, bicycles, large BBQ, hammock, and patio dining to enjoy whale watching. Kaloli Point has the best weather on the Hilo side... some say better than Kona.
Whale House is the only rental where free kayaks are provided with instructions to the waterfalls. This area is great for bicycles and hiking both on and off trails. We also have fruiting coconut palms, papayas, bananas and pineapples on the lush half acre property.
Eight minutes to gas, food, and groceries. Free Wi-Fi and satellite HDTV. This stand alone house is all yours... no shared rooms or floors.

This is a stand-alone house. It's your house while you are here, so make up your own rules. We don't have any...
A great place to stay while visiting the Puna area. Impeccably clean, fabulous view and great help from the host. Jim provided a wealth of information on the area, places to visit, directions, etc. Easy access to the volcano, snorkeling beaches, hiking trails etc. Secure tranquil area removed from the rush of the city.
We loved staying at the Whale House. The views out of each window are great - especially from the huge lanai, the house is spacious and very clean. The neigborhood is quiet and safe. Communication with Jim beforehand was very good and when we arrived he gave us a lot of tips of what to do, where to go. There are snorkels, beach towels, beach chairs, even kayaks free for use. We would have liked to stay longer and definitely recommend Jim's & Becky's place if you want to stay in the Hilo area. Thanks!
We had the wonderful opportunity of staying at The Whale House for a few days for our first trip to Hawaii! Jim was awesome with communication before and up to our stay with all kinds of ideas on what to do on the island. Their home is impeccable and better than the photos. We used our jet lag to our advantage and awoke early and strolled to the waters edge for a breathtaking sunrise! The Whale House will always hold a place in my heart because it was the place Kris used to propose to me! Thanks Jim and Becky! ~~Bryan
We were unable to stay in the Whale House as it had sustained damage from Hurricane Iselle. Jim still met us and showed us around his lovely place. Not only that but he spent almost an hour chatting with us and giving us ideas on what to do and where to eat in the area.
The view is just like the pictures. Beautiful and comfortable home. There is no air conditioning but the fans were enough. We were there in August. House is located in a private resident area. They have everything for cooking needs. The kitchen was nicer than mine. Close to Hilo and Beaches. You do need a car. Or just sit on the veranda and watch the waves and take hikes. We will be back next year!
