Cozy and clean, and the most amazing location! Across the street from Kehena Beach, 20 minutes from Kapoho Tidepools, and 20 minutes from the Kalapana lava flow!

Management response:

The Whale House is amazing. We loved being across from the beach where it was fun to watch dolphins (at least 20) and people. The cottage was super clean, peaceful and well-equipped. It was nice being a short drive from Uncle's for food. It's also near the trailhead for seeing the lava flow which was our highlight on the island....

Management response:

Mahalo! We work hard to make our place as comfortable and clean as possible. We really feel that this s the best value in the area. You can pay $200 a night down here but you won't get what you get here.

This unit exceeded our expectations. Immediately upon seeing it in person we wanted to stay another night. The cottage was recently built with modern amenities. Andre, the owner, was very friendly and had plenty of suggestions on things to do and see in the area. We would definitely stay there again.

About the neighbourhood
Kehena Beach is a remote but beautiful & quiet coastal community near the beach, Kapoho Tide Pools, Ahalanue Warm Ponds, Pohoiki Point and the Kalapana lava fields (a great hiking area).
The ocean is across the street and there are several coconut trees in front of the cottage. It is a very green area w/ roads that go through tunnels of trees.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Hilo: 52.0 km
***DIRECTIONS FROM THE AIRPORT*** You can type in 'Kehena Beach Cottages' on Google maps as well!
When leaving the Hilo airport, turn left at light (a gas station is at the corner across street). Drive all the way through Hilo past the Walmart on the left and keep going out of town until you reach the KEAAU PAHOA BYPASS RD/HI-130 S (turn left on to it). Continue to follow HI-130 South and you will see Pahoa on your right. Keep going straight past it for 9 miles down the hill towards the ocean. Just right after the church, make a left on Route 137, then immediately turn right down the hill to the stop sign. Turn left on KALAPANA - KAPOHO RD and go straight [exactly 3.1 miles] until you reach the cottages on your left.
