    Aloha, we invite you to stay at our “house of new dawns.”

    Halehikiola was named for the refreshing way it evokes the Hawaiian value of Ka la hiki ola each morning as the house fills with light. As “the dawning of a new day,” Ka la hiki ola is the value of promise, optimism, and new beginnings—it invokes our sense of hope. The quiet street we are on, Alaula, is named for another way the Hawaiian language refers to both the light of early dawn, and to the day-glow of sunset before twilight sets in, creating the perfect setting for Halehikiola.

    Thus, Halehikiola is a house with a mission: Our goal is to enliven your spirit with hospitality, comfort and invigoration each time you visit the Big Island of Hawai‘i environs of our neighbor, Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, and spend time on the East side of the island. Bring a journal to capture your thoughts and transcribe your memories—what we call Sense of Place is exceptionally strong and compelling here.

    In respect for the land it dwells on, the house is elevated; it was designed and built to sit atop gentle outcroppings of an ancient lava flow (do take note of the stairways in our photos). Vaulted ceilings reach up through the forest canopy and feature 2 large skylights; Halehikiola feels open yet intimate, comfortably surrounded by the natural wild beauty and cool green foliage of the rainforest. If you’d like to bring the outside in, do feel free to clip the orchids, anthurium, bromeliad torches, forest lilies, gardenia and ginger which may be in bloom; we’ll have a pruner and selection of vases ready for you!

    Location: Halehikiola is in Royal Hawaiian Estates, the neighborhood bordered by the ‘Ola‘a Forest Reserve on the slopes of Kilauea. Drive a short 7 minutes to reach the entrance to Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, 39 minutes to swim and snorkel Punalu‘u Black Sand Beach, and 39 minutes to Hilo and from the Hilo International Airport. On Sunday mornings, be sure to visit the Cooper Center Farmers Market, just 5 minutes away; Volcano Village is known to locals as “where the artists live,” and small galleries outnumber stores and eating places. During longer stays, take day-trip adventures to the west side of the island: Drive 65 miles to the Maunakea Observatories Visitors Center, 85 miles to the Waikoloa Resort and Mauna Lani Resort coastline, or 99 miles to historic Kailua-Kona. Make your visit here a true get-away and island-wide ...

    Our group used this property for a strategic planning retreat. The house was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The home is thoughtfully kept, well stocked, and an overall beautiful space. I would highly recommend Halehikiola. Mahalo for a great stay.

    We had a wonderful time staying at Halehikiola. We had plenty of room for everyone to have space to relax after long days exploring. The house was well stocked and in a perfect location for easy access to the park.

    Lovely property and great house. Well stocked kitchen. Hot tub needed more water and directions on use. But it was nice to have one there!

    The house was beautiful, clean and had everything you could need. Communication was easy and Jolanta was quick to respond to any questions we had. We live on island and look forward to coming back soon. Perfect getaway

    This is a lovely 2 bedroom with nice privacy away from the street and gorgeous plants all around. The back deck and hot tub were much appreciated and my kids absolutely loved the tv room with a ginormous tv and wrap around couch. We only stayed here for one night, would have loved to stay more. It’s very close to volcano nat’l park, allowing us to go into the park at night to see the lava. The only issue was that Volcano is chilly (hard to believe in Hawaii, but it’s true) and when we came home after our long day in the park hoping for a nice warm shower, we found that there was no hot water! Freezing cold shower. Bummer. These things happen, and the property manager was responsive and tried to make it right. I think it’s a lovely place but I can’t give it 5 stars bc of that issue and bc I found it pricey for what is actually only 2 bedrooms (lots of extra twins/couches if you have kids though).

    Our family of 4 stayed for a week to explore Volcanoes National Park. This house was a true gem! The art and furnishings were luxe. Lots of little touches throughout to make us comfortable and entertained. Comfortable beds, a huge entertainment room, really cool art throughout, and even a fun fish hook game in our favorite spot - the covered porch. It was fun to have the chickens and rooster greet us at the end of the day when we returned from our hikes. There was a nice, big dining table to lay out our plans for the week, a washer & dryer including soap and dryer sheets also stocked with drawers of awesome dvds though we were admittedly too exhausted to actually pop any in at the end of the day, a stash of books too which is always appreciated! Great location for getting to the park as well!

    The pictures do not do this place justice. Inside was very well maintained and had tons of decor which add to its uniqueness. The area is very quite and private. We loved sleeping with the widows open and have the cool breeze blow in, hear the rain and the coquis at night. The huge couch was so comfy while we watched movies at night on the massive tv. We were able to cook every morning and had a BBQ one night on the deck. Sitting on the back porch while being surrounded with beautiful trees and flowers was amazing. This is a definite must book!

    The place was beautifully set up and so cozy. Tons of space for us all to find our own nooks and still be together. Loved all the cool decorations we enjoyed discovering all the unique and well appointed decorations, it was so clean and organized! Everything was easy. Our only regret was staying just one night... wish we had more time to unwind and enjoy sleeping in the jungle oasis. We went back and forth to Volcano Natl Park a few times with it only 8 minutes away. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
