    Aloha travlers!

    I'm very happy to see that you made it through these last couple of months, it certianly has been one for the history books!
    If you are feeling the urge to venture out, Hotel Pa'amalu may be the very place for you. We are now accepting reservations from safety minded travelers. Our cottage is located on a three acre mango farm and your closest neighbor is located twice as far as your best mango toss on a good day!
    Hotel Pa'amalu is the only one room hotel in Kealakekua Hawaii. Hotel Pa'amalu is a blend of Polynesia, Indonesia and amnesia. Come swim in our warm tropical waters or explore the enchanting tropical rain forests atop Kilauea, possibly the most active volcano on the plantet. Plan your day while lounging on the lanai, comforted by the warm gentle trade wind breezes.
    You can begin your day 5 minutes from historical Kealakekua Bay, on the leeward slopes of Mauna Loa on the island of Hawaii. The weather is warm, sunny and mild all year long...yes all year long.
    Hotel Pa'amalu is not really a hotel, I just thought that was a catchy name. My dad, friends and I built this little house a few years back. I would, however, describe it as a small story book cottage, welcoming you to write your own chapter. We are settled just up slope from an old Hawaiian fishing village known as Keei. We are surrounded by many different varieties of mangos, bananas and other horticultural surprises.
    Hotel Pa'amalu is a fun, retreat, romantic get away, or a brief interlude as you travel our beautiful islands.
    Thanks so much for visiting, hope to hear from you soon!
    Oh, if you come during mango season you may never leave the lanai!
    Mahalo Nui Loa,

    Charles Cope

    This small cottage had a great screen porch and a view of the ocean in the distance. It was very convenient to City of Refuge and Painted Church. It was not fancy but charming and nice in an old school way. Cozy and good for a couple.

    Overall a bit conflicted about our stay. Absolutely loved the area, the beauty, tranquility and setting. The place is definitely cool with unlimited potential. The interior needs a bit of tightening up. A few things need to be replaced or worked on, screws tightened, kitchen floorboards replaced, sealant applied, etc…. I think it would’ve been helpful to get a better idea beforehand of a few things. I would have liked to know what was jumping on the roof and scratching around outside. Made it a bit difficult to sleep initially. The host is super nice and accommodating. Absolutely stunning setting!

    This property is in a gorgeous location, with incredible sunset views. Tucked away in a very peaceful and safe location of Captain Cook… close but far indeed. Kai is a phenomenal host and a great human and we look forward to the next time we come to the Big Island and can Cool Da Heels.

    The property was wonderful - view of the ocean and the sunsets, bird bath with tons of birds taking advantage, and everything we needed to be comfortable. Host was easy to reach and ready to help. We spent most of our time on the lanai. Great way to visit the Big Island!
