Kawaihae, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
The scent of sweet pikake blossoms greets you on the entry path to Hale ‘Alani. Colorful Birds of Paradise and Bougainvillea flowers adorn the landscaping, accented by an expansive, blue ocean topped coastline view.

Feel right at home in this adorable cottage. Decorated with bright tropical colors, in an unworn vintage style, Hale ‘Alani invokes fun memories from the sixties and seventies... like walking onto the set of Mad Men, right down to the shag carpet.

Grab the cooler, orange beach chairs, and be at the Big Island's best white sand beaches in about a 3 minute drive! BBQ under the palm tree while watching the sunset, visit local restaurants, and then decide between touring the islands many must see sites, or simply relax and read a book in the hammock.

It is a two minute drive to Kawaihae for a few groceries, a six pack, or a...

We had a wonderful time on the big island staying in this authentic little house. There were 5 of us and having a garden with bbq was a real plus. Any issues we had were very quickly sorted out by Rachel’s mum and brother (he lives next door). We’d go back again and thank Rachel for alllowing is to stay.

Management response:

Glad you had a nice stay... hope to have you back again!

The cottage was just the right size and had many amenities including a washer and dryer. The cottage is close to the road so there was some traffic noise. Kawaihae is probably the driest and warmest area of the Big Island but there were breezes that wafted through the cottage. The back bedroom was far from the little air conditioner...

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

This was the perfect place for our family of four (which includes a 5 yr old). We were minutes from our favorite beach and close to our extended family activities. The colors are bright, the space is clean and well appointed, the beds are comfortable - everything you need is either in the house or the attached storage area (boogie...

Glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope to have you again some time. Aloha

About the neighbourhood
Conveniently located about 35 min north of Kona Airport. Easy day trips to North Kohala, Kona or Waimea.... or just enjoy some of the best beaches on the island, which are only minutes away. It is a two minute drive to Kawaihae for a few groceries, a six pack, or a bag of ice. Kawaihae has four great restaurants, too: the Blue Dragon, the Seafood Bar, Cafe Pesto and the Harbor Grill. We love to dance and listen to music and the Blue Dragon's live entertainment is just a mile away!
