Hakalau, Hawaii 96710 United States

Walk through the front door into a vaulted great room with expansive windows looking out to the ocean. Our home offers an incredible location and an elegant tropical house with bamboo floors, granite counters, and colorful landscaping. We host up to 6 guests in two separate bedroom/bath suites each with its own lanai from which to enjoy the sunrise, the stars and the breezes from the ocean. There is also a pull out futon in the living room for guests 5 or 6. The spacious oceanfront lanai of the house also has an outdoor sink/bar for outdoor entertaining.

The owners have created a website with loads of info about The Cliffs, the surrounding area, and Hawaii Island. You can visit it here: www.thecliffsathakalau.com

Our home features two spacious bedrooms, the Hamakua and the Hilo, each boasting its own private bath. The bathroom of the Hamakua room features an extra large, luxurious Jacuzzi tub with full glass windows offering a wide open ocean view. In addition, a separate door off of the Hamakua bath leads you onto a nice wooden lanai and a fabulous, outdoor shower. Both bedrooms have astonishing ocean views right from bed! Our kitchen is outfitted for you to cook up local foods in style. Sit at our elegant Stickley dining room set while watching the ocean - maybe you'll spot whales in winter passing by! The living room has lots of comfortable seating including a sectional sofa, several arm chairs, and a futon which doubles as the bed for guests 5 and 6. A full laundry room is also provided.

Need more room? You can also rent the Treehouse at Hakalau - ask us if it is available for your dates. Sleeps four.

Hilo is known for its warm aloha spirit, relaxed lifestyle, unique shops, art galleries and restaurants with local regional cuisine. Local attractions include Lyman Museum, East Hawaii Cultural Center, historic Palace Theatre, Pacific Tsunami Museum, Imiloa Astronomy Center, UH Hilo Performing Arts Center and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens. Hilo Farmers Market is a favorite for fresh, local produce. Merrie Monarch Festival, Hilo's premier hula competition and cultural event, is held annually. Hilo's black sand beaches are some of the best for snorkeling, diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming with turtles and tropical fish, or watching the whales off shore. Take a helicopter volcano tour or scenic drive to Kilauea Volcano (when flows are active) to view a lava caldera, or tour the summit and view the night skies of Mauna Kea.

We are near Highway 19, only 15 minutes to the town of Hilo, 20 minutes to the Hilo Airport and an approximate 2 hour drive to Kona. This is a great central location to tour and see the inspiring vistas the Island of Hawaii has to offer.

This is a Hawaii County licensed short term rental.

    Deborah S from Toronto, ON recommends this vacation rental

    This home is large, comfortable with gorgeous views from the main living area, and both lanais. The kitchen was not as well stocked as compared to other similar properties, and basic items, such as hand towels and Kleenex were lacking.
    However, it is hard to beat its stunning ocean views and quiet vistas.

    Nikunjben P from Kirkland, WA recommends this vacation rental

    The beauty of this house leaves us speechless. Here with my parents and our child, we've found our best stay in Hawaii during our two visits over the past decade. The property and its surroundings feel like a paradise, offering breathtaking sunrises and peaceful nights as a family. Our stay in this gorgeous home makes us feel safe and connected to nature. We can't wait to return to this wonderful place time and time again.

    • Manager Responded on 11/1/2023

      Mahalo nui for your glowing review, Nikunjben! We are just thrilled to hear that your family loved their time at The Cliffs. We would love to host you again, so please do keep us in mind for future visits to our little corner of paradise :-) Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew Salt Water Real Estate, Hilo HI

    a guest from Laguna Beach, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Just Wow! We spent two weeks on this property and it would be difficult to express in words the beautiful memories that we created on this trip. We saw, cruise ships, tug boats and 2 rainbows right from the house...not to mention the millions of stars that we saw at night from the patio. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed. We cooked dinners and hung out on the property. It was so peaceful and beautiful. There is a walk that you can take down to Hakalau Bay where you can go swimming or you can watch body surfers and people going in to spearfish. The garden is gorgeous and we didn't get a chance to picnic in the front yard but we are definitely booking again to do that! This is a real gem and not to be missed!

      Mahalo nui for your review, Eve, and for all the excellent tips for future guests! We are so happy that you enjoyed your visit. Please keep us in mind for your next trip to Hilo! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew Salt Water Real Estate, Hilo HI

    Jennifer N recommends this vacation rental

    This is in a beautiful location overlooking the ocean - one day we watched whales from the lanai and another day there was a full rainbow. The only dilemma is that there is so much to do in the area - and the house makes you want to stay and relax awhile. They are working on renovations and would love to see what it is like afterwards.

    • Manager Responded on 4/22/2023

      Mahalo for your review, Jennifer. It doesn't get much better than whales and rainbows ;-) We'd love to host you again so please keep us in mind for future visits! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew

    We booked this property based on location and the awesome view. This property is in new owner transition and a few details are being worked on. We had good contact with customer service. This property is beautiful on the outside. Landscaping is gorgeous.

      Aloha Trevor and thanks for the pleasant review. You were wonderful guests and we hope you'll come back to see all the upgrades! There have already been new installations since you left including new window treatments and furniture. Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew

    The spacious property is amazing with privacy and fantastic views of the Pacific over the cliffs. We enjoyed spotting the whales cruising by. The grounds are very nice with rainforest sounds of birds and wildlife filling the air. We would definitely stay again if back in the area

    • Manager Responded on 2/16/2023

      Mahalo for the lovely review Alan! We are so happy you enjoyed the privacy and gorgeous grounds of our Hakalau Estate. Thanks for staying and Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew

    Teresa C recommends this vacation rental

    Loved the location and access to property management. We realize the property has just been acquired and some renovations will be done in the near future. Any concerns we had about supply stock on hand was already communicated to management. Property was clean and supplied. Whales were spotted along a migration route. Beds were very comfortable.

    • Manager Responded on 2/22/2023

      Aloha Teresa and Mahalo for the lovely review! You hit the jackpot seeing whales from the property! We're so glad you chose to stay at the Cliffs at Hakalau and hope to host you again. Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew

    Fabulous location away from it all. Beautiful view of the ocean, sunrise. The new owners will be updating the property so we're looking forward to coming back. A few snags like we couldn't get out the gate.

    • Manager Responded on 2/17/2023

      Thanks Cheryl we can't wait for your return! As you experienced we are actively upgrading SO MUCH and already have replaced the gate keypad and installed new furniture. Luckily the VIEWS will remain the same! Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew
