The Whale House is located in one of the most beautiful places on earth - Kehena Beach on The Big Island of Hawaii.
PLEASE NOTE: We do have 3 units so if the calendar shows 'booked for the 'Whale House', we may still have availability in The Dolphin or Sunshine Cottage. All have spectacular views.
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, geothermically heated ponds, snorkeling, 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 - in the Kehena Beach area. Many of my tenants tell me that they were able to swim w/ the dolphins and you can too!
This is the place for water lovers - you should see the spectacular view from our cottage.
Did you know that the best and safest snorkeling area is just down the road in the Kapoho Tide pools? You can easily navigate all of these places from the cottage in Kehena Beach, it has come to be a very popular spot 'right in the center of all of these attractions'.
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 of Hawaii and just a 1 minute walk across the street to the world famous Kehena Black Sand Beach.
Pohoiki Point and the famous Kapoho snorkeling waters are also near by and remain popular snorkeling, surfing and swimming areas. Compare our rates to those in Kapoho - you will love our place.
Kilauea Volcano is just a 45-60 minute drive where you can walk through Thurstons Lava Tube and look in to Kilauea Caldera.
