Hale o Lei is a charming, private 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath beach house across the street from Kealakekua Bay, in quaint, historical, alternately bustling and serene Napo'opo'o Village. Kealakekua Bay has the best snorkeling in Hawaii as the sole Marine Life Conservation District in Hawaii. Our home is perfect for enjoying the uniqueness of this area and the Big Island. Hale o Lei has both inside and open-air living and dining areas, private master bedroom suite, outside spa, outside shower, sunning deck, and 2 lanais facing the ocean. It is screened to allow you to enjoy the ocean breezes. We have completely outfitted Hale o Lei so that you will feel like you are coming home. It is about 100 feet from the kayak launching pier, a short walk to Manini and Keei Beaches, a one mile kayak to the Captain Cook Monument, a short drive to Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (The Place of Refuge), and right at some of the best snorkeling and spinner dolphin watching in Hawaii. We are eager to help in any way to make this your best vacation experience ever!

About Hart or Marlene Phillips
Aloha! We retired to the Big Island in 2001 because we had traveled widely and this place provided us with the culture, scenery, and overall environment that fit us well. For many years, we lived right up the hill from Hale o Lei, in Kona Coffee Country. Now, we live Puna-side and are loving it there, too. Very special Island!!
Hart or Marlene Phillips purchased this House in 2005
Why Hart or Marlene Phillips chose Captain Cook
Kealakekua Bay has perhaps the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii. We have equipped our home to support this activity, as well as having a comfortable base to do anything you want. It is truly a home away from home, as you can see from our ratings.

We had an awesome time at Hale o Lei. Everything we needed was in the house. When we called on the owner, they were pronto to help us. I’d highly recommend this home. It was so handy to have the washer and dryer. The nature sounds are fabulous there. Saw lots of geckos who entertained us. It was all around a great place to stay. Loved all the privacy and right by the water made it so handy.
It was good !
The location was amazing snorkeling off the hook ...kayaking I’ve never been in such a beautiful place to kayak with the dolphins ....the turtles were amazing to sit up on the seawall every morning with your coffee and watching the turtles beneath you it doesn’t get much better than that ! All the neighbors in the neighborhood are so friendly and welcoming . We will return to this area again .
What an awesome location, great clean and nice house, epic mango tree in the yard with more fruit falling than we could eat! Even the vog was not too bad compared to the rest of Kona being down by the ocean. Had a great stay, hope to return one day again.
Hale o Lei is the perfect place to stay!
This comfortable and quiet house far exceeded my expectations. I’ve stayed in five rentals in the Kealakekua Bay area over the years and Hale o Lei tops them all. The location is perfect for snorkeling and kayaking. The kitchen area is fully stocked and the beds are super comfortable.
My girlfriend and I had Valentines Day dinner reservations elsewhere but we chose to stay “home” and cook a nice dinner for ourselves. That’s how great this place is!
Very convenient location. Lots of bathrooms for a smaller home. Had additional ocean necessities...chairs and snorkeling items and
other handy stuff. Kitchen was very nice. We had a great stay!
Happy New Years beach fun
We had a wonderful time at Hale o Lei during our New Years vacation. The house is has a very beach house feel to it, which is exactly what we would looking for. The house is next to Captain Cook and Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park. We would definitely recommend this rental.
