Welcome to your home away from home, Hale Ke Kai, “where the land and sea meet.” You will come to find out why so many local residents and visitors call it one of the best units at Colony I. We feel honored to have the opportunity to show you the reasons so many have fallen in love with the islands. Those reasons are here to be found in abundance.

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...Read more

Additional Location Information

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 day hikes along the coast where you can see the beautiful coastline of Ka'u with a mountain backdrop provided by Mauna Loa. 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 is an old sugar plantation town and still has the local flair that other towns can only imitate. A short drive from Pahala is the Ka'u Coffee Mill recognized as one of the best roasteries in the world. The Mill is a must visit for every lover of coffee, macadamia nuts, or beautiful artwork. Kathleen Kam's wonderful scenes of Ka'u adorn the Guest Shop and the staff provide free tours of the Coffee Mill, Roastery, Drying Area, and the Coffee Fields. Free samples are available. Continuing up the road a few minutes leads you to the splendor of Wood Valley and the Tibetan Buddhist Temple, Nechung Dorje Draying Ling. Walk the temple grounds and feel the peace of this special place.
Volcanoes National Park is only 30 minutes away with lava viewing and excellent hiking or walking trails for all levels. Next to the National Park is the town of Volcano. Volcano has a great local art center and has a number of restaurants to choose from, all the way from sandwiches at Lehua Cafe to the posh evening meal Kilauea Lodge.
Because the Big Island is...well, an island, you can also go the other way (West or as the locals say "Kona side") about 15 minutes from Hale Ke Kai. Along the way you will pass Honuapo Beach Park with it's Hawaiian Fish Ponds used to catch fish with the tide in days gone by. As you go up the hill to Naalehu (or when you return to Punaluu) be certain to stop at the Scenic Point. The view is one of a kind...the longest undeveloped coastline in Hawaii and probably the world. Naalehu has a large grocery store, the Punaluu Bakery (great Malasadas), and restaurants to choose from. Head further "Kona side" and visit South Point, the southernmost point in the U.S.. Green Sands Beach is a hike, or 4wd trip away from South Point (you can also hire local people to drive you out). Green Sands is famous for its olivine cliffs and sand and is a unique spot to swim in the shore break or dig your feet into the warm sand.
The Big Island and Ka'u abound with activities that will keep everyone in your group wanting to stay longer, and we hope that Hale Ke Kai plays an integral part of a truly memorable visit.
