Hale Pono is located a few miles past Kea'au, right between Highway 130 (for Pahoa/Kalapana) and Highway 11 (for Volcano/Ka'u).

Set in its own acreage down a palm-lined private driveway, Hale Pono is a brand new, eco-friendly retreat home. In a peaceful location off the beaten track, where tropical rainforest meets the jungle on it's way down to the ocean.

Warmer, drier, and sunnier than staying in Volcano Village, Hale Pono enjoys a pleasant rainforest climate gently kissed by the trade winds - only 20 minutes from Hilo airport, closer to all the island has to offer!

Easy access to everything on the Big Island - 25 minutes from Kilauea Volcano Park; 20 minutes from Hilo or Pahoa; 15 minutes to the ocean; 30 minutes to surfing and lava-walks and zip-lining over the waterfalls; 1 hour to South Point, Punalu'u and the green-sand beach; 2 hours to the West-Side of the island, Waimea or Kohala. It's close to everything!

Comfortable beds, 1 king, 1 queen, 1 inflatable queen with mattress-topper, 1 optional twin for an extra person in either bedroom. 2 full bathrooms and all-local harvested wood trim and floor, full kitchen, laundry room, plenty of parking and outdoor Hawaii-style barbeque area. Local art and crafts enhance the natural features of the home.

Your hosts are green and eco-friendly. For a reasonable charge they will pick you up from the airport, will drive you into Hilo to pick up a rental bicycle or local rental vehicle or they will drive you to the 'Hele-on' island bus routes - where $1 will take you on any single bus trip, from home to Hilo/Pahoa/Volcano/Ka'u or from one side of the island to the other!

Your hosts can provide you with your choice of available local, regular, and international groceries to meet you, and/or with home-cooked food ready in your refrigerator daily.

Your hosts are also licensed to officiate any ceremony you may want to plan and experience on the Big Island.

Subject to availability, you may also be able to book an in-home massage session or plan a course of life & health-coaching sessions to let the Big Island change your life forever! Hale Pono caters for all your retreat needs, from the most basic to it's many unique added luxuries.

If you are renting a vehicle, your hosts encourage you to rent locally, and to rent an AWD vehicle or 4x4 - it will give you far more flexibility for your island adventures; scaling the Mauna Kea summit, visiting the wilder beaches and beauty spots.

Hale Pono is set on a traditional lava-rock Hawaii trail - 0.5 miles off paved road in one direction and 0.7 miles in the other, keeping it very quiet and private. So your 4x4 will make the drive home easier, too (although most locals drive the dirt road in regular cars every day).

A TV and DVD player are available and, usually, access to wireless internet and Netflix, although the last two are dependent on the local service being available and are not always reliable. There is excellent 4G service in the area and most smart phones work to pick up wireless internet independent of the WiFi.
