view full size image gallery

This home sits on the bluff of one of the most pristine Bays of the Kona coast, (H) Heeia Bay. Keauhou Bay is just feet away to the South.

The home is a classic older Hawaiiana home that spreads out in all directions for spacious enjoyment and privacy for all guests. The master suite is located in the main house with the other 3 bedrooms located in a separate wing inside the courtyard, each with a separate entrance creating maximum privacy. Swim in the unheated black bottom pool while you watch dolphins and whales pass by.

Part of Baywatch's charm is its traditional Hawaiian coastal open air design. The prevailing trade winds from the west over the ocean and the mountain breezes from the east make this island home so comfortable that there is no need for air conditioning.

Follow a paved pathway for beach access at beautiful Heeia Bay, just around the corner of Manukai Street. The famous Sam Choy restaurant is a five minute drive, a movie theater and shopping center are all within walking distance.

Numerous resort amenities are available just to the South. The Keauhou Bay area offers great ocean access, Scuba diving, Sailing, Catamaran, Fishing charters, Sea kayaking and Outrigger canoeing.

Hotel amenities do not come with the home.

If you are seeking local markets and historical context, downtown Kailua-Kona is approximately a 10 minute drive for easy access to shopping, businesses, waterfront restaurants and hotels. Watch the people and the cruise ships come and go from the Kailua Pier. Visit the famous Farmer's Market. Enjoy a shave ice or a cup of Kona coffee, have a light snack or a gourmet meal, buy an inexpensive souvenir or a piece of fine art, book an activity, go for a swim or hang out on the many beautiful beaches.

Up the coast is a busy marina with Hawaii's best scuba diving, big-game fishing, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching and other ocean activities. Hale Akala is conveniently located, a great home base to explore the many wonders of the Big Island including Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory, coffee and macadamia nut farms, artist communities, and more!

WARNING! Home might not be suitable for small children due to pool and cliff location as well as the location of the bedrooms.

    a guest from Winston Salem, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We had some hesitation to reserve the property based on some prior negative reviews about cleanliness in which the mgmt company assured us they had addressed the issues with the cleaning company. WE ARE THANKFUL we took the chance. The property location is fantastic, close to shopping, beaches but very private. You have tremendous sunset views over the ocean. Having three onsuite bedrooms in a wing within the courtyard provided the perfect amount of privacy for our family with teenage children.

    The large central kitchen was the perfect gathering place after sunset to cook our dinners. With so many things to do on the big island we did not spend much time "in" the pool, every morning we sat around it and drank our coffee while watching the whales and boats which were visible just offshore.

    We are already discussing our next trip back.

    Catherine R from Denver, Co recommends this vacation rental

    We truly enjoyed our stay at this property. The location was great, and the view was even better! The home was appropriately furnished but lacked kitchen utensils. We had planned to cook much more than we were able to because there were not many pots, pans, knives, spatulas, etc.... We wish the kitchen had been better equipped. Other than that we loved the home and would defiantly stay there again.

    We were able to have Christmas dinner here with plenty of room to entertain family from Bellingham, Wa and our Kona family. The house is set up so that from everywhere on the property and in the house you see and hear the waves. We will return to this great property.

    a guest from Dickinson, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Baywatch was in a great location and the landscaping was beautiful. The house was very nice, however needs updating and a better cleaning company. We were pleased with the layout and wonderful views from the home, however the windows were very dirty and it was dusty inside since it probably hadn't been cleaned since the previous renters, whenever that was. We found food (pretzels, nuts and seeds) in the couch so we had to clean that ourselves to avoid unwanted guests. There was lizard feces on the walls and insects were able to get through a hole in the wall of the pantry going to outside. The carpet going upstairs and in the master suite desperately needs removal, it was unpleasant to walk on and felt unclean and gross. We used extra floor fans to help with cooling since there is no air conditioner, however did see a air return filter that was extremely dusty and should be changed out for the fan that was running, we turned it off. The master suite could also use a new mattress and pillows, I am not sure about the other rooms since we did not use them. I called the cleaning company and the lady was not very friendly or helpful. The cleaning fee was $400 and I thought that was encredibly high considering they did an average job and we did not use 3 of the bedrooms with baths. Overall the best thing about this home is the dead end road gives privacy and it has amazing views of the ocean and sunset. It's a nice distance from the tourist town, not too close, but not too far. We enjoyed our stay, but I'm not sure we would rent it again.

    Rhett W from San Francisco, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We loved the house and location. The house is spacious. Only 1 bedroom is inside the house and the other 3 have private entrances. The cliff is not ideal for small kids but there is a large front yard for them to play in. The pool was great.

    Julie H from Jackson, WI recommends this vacation rental

    My family had a great time. The view was outstanding. I have rented hopmes before, and I was a lttle disapointed. When I rent a home that has a gourmet kitchen, I expect to have kettles, and accessories. The cabinets were bare. There was 4 kettles, one hotpad which didn't work. So we had to regroup on our meals. There were no grill accessories, so we had nothing to flip steaks, or fish. We left our extras behind to help the next renter. The description of the house never said the three bedrooms were not in the house, and because we couldn't lock the gates, everyone had to lock themselves in their seperate rooms at night. Half the lights didn't work. Maybe the owner should mark the lights so there easier to figure out. We never could figure out which switch turned on the lights by the garage door. All in all, this was a perfect location. Infact, my kids are talking about renting again. Just a note, don't shop at the grocery store up the road. stop at Safeway on Henry Dr.,or Costco right by the airport.
    All in all, we all enjoyed the home. And we will be back!

    Looking forward to booking again without any hesitation. Location and home is ideal for a family retreat, however due to bluff location small children need watching. This was however made very clear by property management co. beforehand.

    This holiday was super. The rental home was very clean and accomadated the eight of us very well. There was lots of room and the unit was very well laid out for a large group. We would highly recomment it to anybody. The house was situated where it was easy to get around to the different attractions. Hope we can use your services in the future.

    The house is beautiful and the four rooms with separate entrance and baths are perfect for a group of friends travelling together. The only complaint is no air conditioning... I know a lot of places don't have it, but it was pretty warm at night. The dishwasher also wasn't working, but otherwise it was excellent.

    We loved our stay here more than we can say. The house was really wonderful with the most breathtaking view. We were so impressed with how responsive the property management group was with our requests. Kitchen needs updated appliances, the pool light needs to be fixed for night swimming (which we did tons) and it could use more cleaning and kitchen supplies but otherwise it was great. It is so spacious for one large family or more. The location is very private and secluded. An amazing stay!

    Phillip T from Boonville, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This lovely older house with a pool on the ocean: comfortable four bedroon, 5.5 bath house. The large deck, with BBQ lent itself to serene drinks and dinner at sunset. The dishwasher and the stove venting weren't working. The living room was sparsely furnished for a house with four bedrooms, and the only television in the house was undersized for the room. I'd charge a few dollars more each day and provide dish soap,toilet paper and laundry soap.

    We stayed here for Christmas 2011. The house is recently renovated. The layout of the house was perfect for our family of 8 adults. Plenty of room to socialize and plenty of space for private time. It is much nicer than the pictures depict. There are two bays within a short walk for paddle boarding, snorkling, etc.
