O' Kealoha has a rare view of P'u'u O'o crater. it gives you the feeling of stepping back into prehistoric time with the warm tropical trade winds you are in paradise. This is a romantic retreat for two or the family & friends , and it is a private home. We will have every comfort you need for two or eight. Including two full bathrooms and a half. O' Kealoha landscaped out side is inviting, sit by the pool and have lunch, or read a book, later have a glass of wine and take a night time swim in the pool. Off the master bedroom and kitchen you can sit with your favorite drink and look at the breathtaking sunrises, cascading rainbows, and beautiful lava formations. Wake up to the sight of whales and dolphins during Jan, Feb, March and the first part of April all at O' Kealoha touch the stars on a romantic moon lit night. Don't miss the Merrie Monarch Festival a week long celebration and wonderful cultural event. Hula dancers come from all around the world to compete at the end of April around Easter Sunday. The Volcano, Hula and Folklore draw me to this side of the Island I can do anything I want from O'Kealoha If you like hiking Shipman Beach it is right next to us, there have been documentaries done about the location it is a historical site. On the hike you will see bunkers you need to research and get your path, take water and lunch. They are are numerous activities you can do on the Big Island of Hawaii. You may visit the Botanical Gardens or take a hike and explore Volcano National Park a 45 min drive. Swim and snorkel at the tide pools at Kapaoh, surfing at Pohiki, soaking at the Ahalanui Hot Ponds, or visit the Farmers Market in the town of Hilo, or Pahoa, go to Uncle Roberts, in Kalapana with live music and dance, take a walk to the beach while your are their! Explore the rivers and waterfalls on the island. Eat you way from one side to the other. Your dream vacation is waiting and is only limited by your own imagination. This is a great home for older children that are exploring the11 eco systems, ocean life, stars, and volcanology all on one island Mahalo.More

About the neighbourhood
This lovely Regal home sits on the ocean side of the road, referred to as the strand. In the beautiful neighborhood of H.P.P. The neighbors are quiet and friendly. We do have vacationers and neighbors walking their dogs and riding their bicycles in the early part of the after noon, and after dinner. But by night fall it is quiet that means the pool is front of the house becomes very private. Turn the pool lights on and enjoy a swim. You can pick up your Ti-Ki torches and citronella bug repellentat at local hard ware store, you can take advantage of the night time activities of a barbeque, by the pool or out back on the ocean side. We are one of the loveliest homes in the southeast bay of Hawaii. Sometimes yow will see a sunrise worshiper, or a hawaiian family that will come down and cool...
