Accessible Oceanfront Beach Cottage- Hale Ehu Kai

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 27, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Oceanfront Hale Ehu Kai (Sea Spray House) allows you to enjoy Hawaii at its best!! The view as you come in the front door is like you are on a boat, without the rocking. It is centrally located between the resident turtles (Humphrey, Hilda, and baby Hubert), dolphins, whales,

cruise ships, and other wild life in your front yard and the wonders of East Hawaii in your back yard. Kapoho warm pond and Champagne Pond, Lava Trees State Park, and some of the newest beaches in the world are within a few miles. Volcanoes National Park and Hilo are

30-45 minutes away. Spectacular waterfalls and scenery of the Kohala Coast and Waipio Valley are beyond Hilo.

It is truly a place where you can choose the pace of your vacation!

You can relax and enjoy the ocean from the spa, on the huge 12'x40'

deck, or in the house or you can explore the Big Island by driving,

bicycling, or hiking. Nearby, funky Pahoa Town has outstanding and

varied restaurants and shops. Snorkeling and surfing are nearby, but

not at the house.

It is wheelchair accessible so everyone can enjoy it's magnificent

setting, with a ramp, lever-type door and bathroom handles, wide pocket doors,

roll-in shower with fixed and hand held shower heads and grab bars. It is also a non-smoking house. We have completely outfitted Hale Ehu Kai so that you will feel like you are coming home to paradise! Marlene has included everything you

could ever need in the kitchen (as more than one visitor has said, 'if

you can't find it--just look harder').

Remember!! You also can combine your stay with the owner's Kona-side vacation rental at Kealakekua Bay, Hale o Lei (#22776) for a total Big Island experience (and a 'package-price' rate).

About the Owner

Aloha! Marlene and I retired to the Big Island in 2001 because of it's wonderful people and diverse scenery. Prior to that, Marlene was a teacher and I was a human relations manager/consultant for many years. We had always loved the Puna-side of the Island so we bought our oceanfront lot and built Hale Ehu Kai a couple of years later. We enjoy going there and sharing it with our guests.

Such a Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this comfortable and beautiful house. We had everything we needed. The house was clean, well furnished, comfortable and equipped very well, and was affordable. We loved the hot tub on the deck. Someone came to check it while we were there to make sure it was safe to use. The view of the ocean was amazing. We never got tired of watching the waves come in. We appreciated the notebook with the information about the area that the owners had prepared. Pahoa was an interesting town and we would love to return sometime. We would recommend this rental and the beautiful area that surrounded it.

We only stayed one night

  • 3 of 5

While this is a lovely house with a fantastic view, we only stayed one night. We were scheduled to stay for three nights, but after the first night we left. Sadly, there was mold all over everything in this house. I know that it is hard to control moisture when you are right off of the Pacific, but there has to be something that can be done. I live in Houston and grew up on the Texas coast, so I am very familiar with humidity. When you see black splotches on the walls, smoke alarms, and blinds, something needs to be done. The place also had quite a few bugs, both alive and dead. My husband said he found dead roaches in the tub in the guest bathroom....I'm glad he decided to keep that a secret until we left, because we would have been sleeping in the car at that point. I debated about leaving this review, but felt that it needed to be known. I was so disappointed.

Owner's Response: Aloha! It is very difficult maintaining a house within 40 feet of an ocean cliff, while still maintaining reasonable rates! That’s why we call our home Hale Ehu Kai (Seaspray House). We thank these guests for letting us know about a cleaning need. We immediately asked our management company to deep clean the areas in question and have arranged to install curtains, rather than blinds, in the living room and master bedroom. We hope these guests come back for a relaxing vacation, if they wish. The Owners

Pictures Do Not Do This Paradise Justice!

  • 5 of 5

Wow,

My husband and I eloped to the Big Island and stayed here at this wonderful home for our private honeymoon. We wanted something secluded, on the water, nice, clean, and affordable. This home provided all of that and more.

Booking on line is scary, especially given all the scams these days. We hoped for the best and expected nothing. We walked into the house and our jaws dropped. Hawaii hotels with no view, no kitchen...twice the price have nothing on this home. Clean, well kept, astounding views from all of the rooms, quiet and somewhat secluded, we were in heaven. Our first night we woke up at 4am to a spectacular sunrise and fresh coffee. We had stopped in Hilo for groceries on the way there (recommended, a bit of a drive) so we had a wonderful breakfast & coffee on the Lanai watching turtles and the sunrise. We did this every morning.

My husband and I fell in love with Pahoa so much so, we have decided to move here sometime in 2015! Thank you to the wonderful owners for sharing this paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was an absolute joy to wake up to that this morning. We are so glad that you enjoyed it and we hope to be able to welcome you back again soon.

The minute we walked up to the front door, we knew we were in paradise! The view, the sound of the waves, and the house were amazing! The location made it easy to see the Hilo side of the island. We would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to friends and family. Mahalo!

Reviewer Comments:

This Place was great! We were very pleased to find it was very clean and neat. We were surprised at how well equipped it was. Providing everything from a cooler to beach towels to everything a vacationer could need! They also provided a guide with local markets, attractions, and other useful information. The view was amazing! We were able sleep with the doors open to let in the cool breeze and the sounds of the ocean. We loved how it was on a local village and allowed for us to get a feel for the local side of the island. It was a great experience and we would definitely recommend it!

Hale Ehu Kai is very special in that it can be used as a relaxing place to stay your whole vacation or as a travel base due to being central to the volcanic action and near some of the unique Puna experiences.
