House - Entire home/apt · Ala Heiau Rd, Keaau, HI 96749, United States

The Space

Hale Mar Hawaii is the house of your dreams in paradise: big blue Pacific ocean swells - whales and dolphins - swimming pool - hot tub - volcano - rainforests - black sand beaches - coconut palms! Maximize your Big Island experience from your own spacious sanctuary of privacy, peace and luxury: Hale Mar is a 3+ bedroom, absolute oceanfront home on a private 1/2 acre property in a quiet rural area, with 100' of direct sea frontage, your own 38' lap pool and hot tub by the sea and under the stars, and all the amenities to provide you with a pampered and relaxing long or short term stay in paradise.

Bedroom layout:
1 gigantic master bedroom with romantic canopied king-size platform bed, from which you can see the whales, dolphins and turtles frolicking in the ocean, and its own private balcony overlooking the ocean, en-suite bathroom with tiled, 2-seat shower, walk in closet, and exercise equipment area, plus a small futon for lounging on in front of the big color TV, if you get tired of looking at the ocean!
1 medium sized bedroom decorated in white and green "Key West gingerbread" style, with a double bed and its own sliding-door access to the pool, hot tub, and ocean;
1 small bedroom decorated in old-Hawaii colors and its own private patio seating area, also with access to the pool and hot tub;
1 extra room configured as an office (in case you need to catch up on your email?) which can also be set up as an extra bedroom with the folding cot and air mattress we provide.

Check out these special features:
- decorated with resort-quality luxury decor and bed linens
- only about 15 miles from the Hilo (ITO) airport, restaurants and grocery stores, but a world away in ambiance: listen to the waves crash and the birds sing
- close enough to the active volcano lava flows to visit for day or night hiking and viewing
- very close to sparkling black sand beaches, swimmable and protected tide pools full of fish and turtles, and the rambling outback-Hawaiian countryside including rainforests, waterfalls, and papaya farms
- convenient to sophisticated leisure pursuits like golf, horseback riding, wine tasting, orchid farms and art galleries
- modern conveniences like FREE high speed wireless internet access, iPod dock, satellite TV, gourmet kitchen, and full laundry room.
- extras provided like bicycles, barbecue, fax machine, wall safe for small valuables, and various games, movies, music, books, pool toys...

Minimum stay is just ONE NIGHT most of the year (exceptions: 5 night minimum at Christmas/New Year's and for the Merrie Monarch Festival the week after Easter, the biggest, most important Polynesian dance festival in the world. Check it out!)

Guest Access

Hale Mar is a stand-alone home: you have the whole place to yourself, including 2000 sq ft home on a half acre of landscaped ocean front, with private 38' lap pool and 6 person hot tub!

Interaction with Guests

We send you a Welcome Package by FedEx a month prior to your stay. The Welcome Package includes a map, detailed driving directions, the house key, and lots of useful info for your stay.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood, Paradise Park, is a true paradise! Just stroll along the ocean cliffs and see/hear/smell the crashing surf and you'll know why. It's so peaceful you can hear birds all day and frogs and night, and the Big Island air is the certified cleanest in the United States.

Getting around

The Big Island is BIG. You really need a car to get around! Luckily car rental is really inexpensive on the Big Island, starting at only around $25/day, and all the big rental companies (Avis, Hertz, National...) serve both Hilo and Kona airports.
There are good roads to all the principal sites (volcano, waterfalls, black sand beaches, etc.) but if you want to explore remote areas, without paved roads, you should consider renting a 4 wheel drive vehicle.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved our stay here, the pool, the hot tube, and the view were all better than in the photos. I will return the next time I head to the big island.

    Response from Hale Mar:

    So glad you had a good stay- come back soon!

  • The location is amazing, the house itself is spacious and it is well maintained. The view from the jacuzzi was second to none. It was a very comfortable experience. I would definitely recommend this place!

  • WOW! This house is fantastic. For the second half of our honeymoon, we wanted to stay in a place that was private but beautiful and we found it! Do yourself a favor and book immediately. The view from the back of the house cannot be compared to anything else and was incredible. We did a lot of exploring and adventures but this was the perfect place to sit on the back patio and balcony and read while watching the waves. The jacuzzi was also a great way to relax. It was a little cold for the pool but we wanted to try it! It was just so clean and prestine. This was the perfect location for us and it was very nice to have access to full kitchen and laundry facilities. There are a lot of great places to eat around (they have chain stores, but go local!) and it was only an hour drive to the Volcano National Park and we took advantage of it! We even drove to Kona for a day trip. Thank you for the amazing experience and the fantastic house. It was spectacular.

  • If you are looking for a beautiful home with an incredible ocean front view then look no further than Hale Mar. We spent two days and nights there and will book again for next year. The master bedroom suite is gorgeous. It is close to Hilo and Pahoa and 30 minutes drive to the Volcano. The lap pool and hot tub are wonderful and the garden statues add a lovely meditative ambiance and island feel. Thanks airbnb for making this happen for us.

  • The stay in Hale Mar was a wonderful experience. The house is surrounded by nature and sea, a terrific place to relax. The location is ideal for families, very well furnished with a wonderful pool and a lot of nice details one appreciates far away from home. We had a great time. Hale Mar is a top choice to explore Hawai'i away from tourist crowds! Thanks for sharing the extraordinary property with us.
