The Big Island is our home and we go to great lengths to help you feel at home too. This spacious and beautifully furnished one bedroom condo is single level with absolutely no steps. Although it is considered a condo, there are no upstairs or downstairs neighbors, only the back wall of the closet is shared. Hale Kekai is unit #23 in the Sea Mountain Resort. The lanai (patio) is very private. Speaking of the lanai, “Wow!” is the usual response. Sweeping unobstructed ocean views that blend gently without interruption into an incredible mountain view. This is Hawaii, your Hawaii.
A high quality king size bed in the master bedroom will combine with the soft breezes and gentle lull of the waves to bring calm wondrous dreams of the beauty of the real Hawaii. The living and dining areas also have sweeping ocean views and are outfitted tastefully yet comfortably as this is as much our home as yours. The living area also boasts a fold out sofa bed that we have slept on ourselves and is very comfortable.
The kitchen with range, oven, microwave, full size fridge, coffee/espresso maker, dishwasher, and small appliances is well stocked with quality flat ware, a variety of teas, and condiments and spices to get you started on the meal of your choice.
The bathroom has a cavernous granite tiled shower that is an easy step inside. We love every corner of this place and believe you will too.
Enjoy some world famous Ka’u Coffee on the lanai or hang out at the pool or hot tub with new found friends, either way you will be glad to have found one of the world’s hidden gems. Punaluu Black Sand Beach, consistently voted one of the Top Ten Black Sand Beaches in the World, is only a few minutes’ walk away. Sunbathe beneath the palms, snorkel with turtles, or watch them haul up on the beach. Enjoy some golf or tennis right next door or for the more adventuresome, hike out either direction and re-discover Hawaiian historical sites (please show due respect to all archaeological sites and observe proper viewing distance and rules regarding all marine creatures).
Hale Ke Kai is perfect for any family or couple seeking the trip of a lifetime. A secluded, yet accessible wonder that will be remembered.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is only 30 minutes away, making Punaluu the closest ocean front lodging. Hike the volcano by day and relax in the hot tub under the stars by night. The pool and hot tub have wonderful ocean views and you can barbeque fresh island fish or local grass fed beef on one of the quality barbeques next to the pool.
Our special vision for Hale Ke Kai is for people who may be less able to travel to have the chance to visit one of the best kept secrets in the world…and be comfortable. Hale Ke Kai has no steps, no stairs, just a little bump at the front and sliding doors. This means couples where one partner is movement impaired or a family with aging parents can still share moments of beauty and peace. Our goal is for every family member, including children, to feel safe and at home. Should you or your loved one have special needs, please contact us, we will make every attempt to accommodate your needs.

Jeff was great to deal with and his communication was superb. It was relaxing staying at his condo and we walked to the Black Sand Beach and swam with the turtles. Jeff's condo is nicely appointed and the shower is great. We had a little...More

This condo community is off the beaten path, yet within walking distance of the Black Sand Beach, and a short drive to Volcano National Park or Punaluu Bake Shop (which is the bomb). With no light pollution, you could sit on the patio at night...More

Hale Ke Kai is located in the Colony One condominiums at Sea Mountain Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. Punaluu Black Sand Beach is a few minutes walk away. Punaluu offers swimming and snorkeling at one of the 'Top Ten Black Sand Beaches in the World.' Colony One is surrounded by the southernmost golf course in the United States and also has tennis courts minutes away.

There are many archaeological sites and petroglyphs (Pre-contact drawings carved in the lava) along the coastal trail. The nearby town of Pahala is about 10 minutes (East or 'Hilo side' as the locals say) away and has a small convenience store, bank, Post Office, and Pharmacy. Pahala ...
