    Come visit and see our gorgeous 2024 room renovations! Beds, furnishings, art, decor - everything is ALL NEW. The amazing ocean front view remains the same ;-)

    Please note: there is not a hot tub at Hale Kai. It was decommissioned in early 2024 and removed from all of our advertising. It's mentioned in many reviews and we cannot alter or remove those, so there's been some confusion.

    Hale Kai Hawaii Suites offers four oceanfront rooms (booked individually) and a spectacular, panoramic view of the blue Pacific Ocean and Hilo Bay. We overlook the popular Honolii surfing beach in a peaceful location just 2 miles north of historic Hilo Town. Revel in the best views in Hilo while at our pool and oceanfront lanai!

    The Moana Room is a large room with king bed, small table with chairs, desk, WiFi, SMART TV, private bathroom with shower, small fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, hot water pot, toaster, dishes and utensils, ceiling and portable fan, no air conditioning and sliding door to lanai. Continental breakfast items are stocked daily and we invite all guests to swim in the pool or lounge on our oceanfront lanai.

    A few NOTES: One parking spot is provided per room in this quiet residential neighborhood. All Guest Rooms are facing the ocean on the lower level of the property and there are over 30 steps down (pictured) to traverse to the rooms. Guests are responsible for carrying their luggage to their rooms. Bookings limited to 2 guests per room (age 13 years and over). Quiet hours are 9pm to 8am for the comfort of all of our guests, Mahalo!

    While at Hale Kai (House on the Ocean) Hawaii, enjoy watching surfers, dolphins, and seasonal humpback whales during their annual migration to the Hawaiian Islands from the north Pacific. Hale Kai Hawaii is recommended in the leading online sites and guidebooks for the Hawaiian Islands, including TripAdvisor, Frommer's, Fodors, Lonely Planet, Off the Beaten Path, Ulysses, Rough, Moon, and Hawaii, The Big Island Revealed....

    Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The guesthouse is located just 5-10 minutes north of Hilo, depending on traffic (morning rush into town will take longer). The views out of Hilo Bay are amazing. It is whale season and every morning we saw dozens of them out in the bay.Our room (Moana room) was clean but basic. We had a microwave, fridge, toaster, and coffee maker. Fruit and muffins provided.Not for people with mobility issues as there are steps down and back up to get in and out of the rooms. The driveway is also steep and it can be a challenge to get your vehicle out. The left turn onto the main road to Hilo can be tough as well during heavy traffic and at night with low visibiility.Overall, great place to stay during a visit to Hilo.

    I understand that the renovations are nearly done, but they’re still causing complications. When we arrived, the small parking lot was half filled with workers’ trucks, so we had to wait for them to leave. Admittedly, we arrived about half an hour early. We were supposed to have a particular space reserved, but even after the workers left, a truck was still in our space, so we had to park in a different one. We went out for dinner, but when we came back, a sedan was in our space, so we had to choose another. In practice, I guess, it’s first-come, first-served, or take what you can get. Also, the driveway is, as ever (this is our third stay at the property), quite steep, making it a bit of challenge to maneuver your way out, especially if you have to do so in reverse. Still, it’s a beautiful and delightful place, especially if you like to get up in the dark and watch the sun rise. It’s worth some inconvenience and anxiety in the parking lot.

    Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The location here is absolutely gorgeous! The property is set on a hill that overlooks the ocean, where whales frequent! We were able to see whales right from the patio area in front of our room! The property has no AC, which we anticipated, but the only way to get air in the room is by leaving the screen slider open, with no way to lock it, which made me a little uneasy. The room would get very warm during the day, but thankfully, it cooled off fairly quickly once said door was open. The room was super cute & we loved the decorations, but the mattress and pillows were *awful.* It felt like we were sleeping on cement it was so firm (and the pillows were the same). They also provided a tasty breakfast each morning, which we really enjoyed. There was so much to love about this open-air property! If they update the mattress & pillows, we would definitely return.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My husband and I stayed in the Moana room for two nights. I loved the fresh beachy decor of the room and everything was extremely clean. We enjoyed the breakfast left for us every morning of fruit, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and muffins. The views from our room were breathtaking! On New Year's Eve we could see fireworks going off all around the bay. During the day we were able to watch the surfers down below.The property managers were very helpful and friendly. I loved everything about this vacation rental and would highly recommend it.

    Great view, clean room. I wish there was AC, but we enjoyed our stay. The girls next to us were a little annoying by playing their music and loud while in hot tub.

    This is our first B&B and we were very impressed. Great fresh breakfast provided every morning. Beautiful surroundings and sunrise. Not too far from town and excursions. We highly recommend this place and our wonderful host who was always available when needed.
