It also has an ocean view from every room in the house, including the bathroom. If you are interested in Yoga, we are situated near Ramashalla Yoga Center located here on 'The Red Road'. Many people come to Hawaii to visit Volcano National Park - home of Kilauea and the periodic lava flows just a short distance from us. There are also Hawaiian jungles, tropical rain forests, beautiful coastal views, warm ponds/beach at Pohoiki as well, tide pools, snorkeling/surfing at beaches, whale watching w/ dolphins that migrate to the warm Hawaiian waters from Alaska. You can often see them from our lanai off our beautiful coast. This is the place for water lovers - you should see the spectacular ocean view & sunrise over the south pacific from our lanai - where you may want to eat your breakfast!! For those of you who are seeking night time entertainment, check out 'Uncles Outdoor Hawaii Bar' if you want to sip a beer, listen to live Hawaiian music, eat great food and enjoy a farmers market at the same time. The Whale House is located in beautiful Kehena Beach on the Hilo side of the Big Island but there are 5 black sand beaches here in Puna. Kapoho, Mackenzie and Kaimu Black sand beaches have to be hiked to. Pohoiki Black Sand Beach is the newest beach on the planet, created by the most recent Kilauea eruption. Pohoiki has two warm ponds and is a wonderful family beach. Kilauea Volcano is just a 45-60 minute drive where you can visit the huge Kilauea caldera. Whale House is also close to the lava fields and eruption sites, coastal tide pools, snorkeling, fishing areas, Akaka, Kahuna and Rainbow Falls, Boiling Pots, hiking, Farmers Market (1/2 block away), Space Community Arts Center, Keck Observatory, Kilauea , Uncles Bamboo Tiki Bar w/ live music, cafes, food markets, Volcanoes Nat'l Park and so much more - are just 10-45 minutes away. You will love this area! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HAWAII TA-042-418-7904-01More

The whale house was definitely a highlight of our trip. The lush jungle all around us was breath-taking. I was joking (but sort of serious also) that I'd love to retire there. Kehena beach was a beautiful black sand beach. The home & area has...More

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.

About the neighbourhood
Kehena Beach is a remote but beautiful & quiet coastal community near the beach, coastal ride pools, Pohoiki Warm Ponds, Pohoiki Family Beach, Kapoho, Mackenzie, Kaimu black sand beaches 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.
Getting around
Best to rent a car but the local Heleon bus drives by 6 days per week.
