Ho’onanea specializes in guests who seek an unforgettable vacation or honeymoon experience. This exotic vacation rental offers visitors an unequaled amount of tranquility and aesthetics, giving guests a chance to experience Hawaii as few tourists ever can.
In this residence, with separate entrances, are two private apartments, in addition to our own quarters. The upper apartment has two double beds, which sleeps up to 4 people. The lower apartment has two sleeping areas, each with a queen size bed, which is suitable for two couples.
Both apartments feature tile baths with tubs and showers, living room, kitchen, and outside dining and sunning lanais with spectacular views of the botanical gardens and the ocean. The kitchens feature refrigerators, ranges, ovens, microwaves, sinks, and disposals as well as full sets of dishes and kitchenware. Also included are color televisions with cable and a DVD player, CD player/radio and cassette player, private telephone, ceiling fans, full linens, and a book library for entertainment. For guests interested in the history and culture of Hawaii, copies of To Steal a Kingdom by Michael Dougherty are available. Each unit is furnished with priceless Koa "art furniture" and decorated with works from Hawaii's most famous artists.
A deep-water swimming pool is located on the premises, accented by an eight-foot waterfall spilling into a shallow pool. A separate building contains a heated spa, sundeck, and shower room. Nearby, you'll find a picnic area with a barbecue.
Many of our guests reserve both apartments for family reunions, small seminars, weddings, anniversaries or similar occasions. We will be happy to arrange additional accommodations at nearby facilities. Ho'onanea can become the "gathering place" for all.
Our house is located on the Big Island of Hawai'i, in the Captain Cook area near Kealakekua Bay.
