Hale O Kip Estate on the Big Island is a great place to stay, see what a guest just said about this wonderful home

This home is spacious and relaxing and impeccably maintained. While there were just two of us on this trip, it is a great vacation home for larger families or perhaps a couple of families. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. It is on the main highway (19) to Waimea, but up higher on a hill, so still very private. You can hear street noise, but with the windows closed, it is not noticeable. Even when outside, the traffic noise was not obtrusive. It is convenient to the town of Waimea and the resorts at Mauna Lani and Waikoloa. It is about an hour and 20 minutes to Hilo. The home is designed very nicely and has large living areas that open out on to the ocean views. You can enjoy the view with the windows open or closed. The realtor who handles the property is so helpful and thoughtfully left the lights on, as our flight came in at night. This was one of the most restful vacations we’ve had…we were happy to just lounge around the house for most of the trip and enjoy the ocean and volcano views. It is conveniently located as a home base for driving throughout the island. We ate at Pau (Waimea), Hawaiian Style Cafe (Waimea), Lava Lava Beach Club (Waikoloa), King’s View Cafe (Kapaau) and brought home food from the Gourmet Supermarket in Queens Marketplace in Waikoloa. Pau was the tastiest. Hawaiian Style Cafe was very generous with their portions and had good pancakes. The staff were very friendly. Lava Lava Beach Club was perfect for sunset dining, right on the sand. They also had a duo singing, which was nice for a sunset dinner. Went to the Waimea Christmas parade….a small town treat. The Big Island is so restful and this home was definitely a great way to enjoy island living. – See more at: http://www.vacationbigisland.com/testimo…

The Shops at Mauna Lani
Mauna Lani Resort

Fairmont Orchid

Napua at Mauna Lani Beach Club — Open for lunch daily, 11 am to 4 pm. Open for dinner, 5 pm to 9 pm, but check, as days are seasonal. Usually closed for dinner on Mondays. 808-885-5910. Good fish tacos and fish and chips for lunch. Reservations recommended.

Petroglyphs – Petroglpyhs are ancient Hawaiian carvings on lava stone. The Malama Petroglyph Trail is a1-1/2 mile round trip hike that takes you through the Puako Petroglyph Archeological District, maybe five minutes from our entrance. The walk takes about 25 minutes. It is right next to Holoholo Kai Beach Park and they share the same parking lot. The Park has a comfort station, water, and grass and tables for a picnic, and a great ocean view.

The Park and Malama Trail are open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm and the access gates are closed tight at 6:30 pm, so watch your time or walk home. BUT BE ADVISED: wear shoes on the trail. Thorns from the kiawe trees are sharp and wicked. No shoes mean really hurt feet. Wear a hat. And take water with you. It can get very hot in the afternoon, so an early morning walk is suggested. And yes, it is worth the effort.

Take N. Kaniku Drive towards the Fairmont Orchid (left turn from our entrances). Turn right just before the entrance to Fairmont and that road will end at the parking lot.

Kalahuipua’a Historical Park and Trails – Just south of The Shops and on the road to the Mauna Lani Spa, this is a short walk to the fishponds. The park is open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm. The parking lot has a comfort station. You should wear shoes and a hat, and take water with you.

A two minute drive from our entrance. Take the first left past The Shops. It is the road to the Mauna Lani Spa. Take the first right into the park’s parking lot. The gate is closed and locked at 6:30 pm.

Historic Fishponds – This is a leisurely walk between the Mauna Lani Resort and the Baby Beach. It is a must see. An easy walk, tennis shoes are nice, but you can get away with sandals or flip flops if this is the only place you are walking.

Honoka’ope Beach (aka 49 Black Sands Beach) an out of the way public beach located within the 49 Black Sands Beach gated community. The only amenities are a comfort station in the parking lot and a small shower at the beach. So, you need to take food, water, beach mats, etc. The beach is a short 2 minute walk from the parking lot. It is quiet and only gets a crowd on holidays and weekends, but even then it is not usually “crowded.” If the wind is up, and the sea choppy, swimming can be a challenge. But otherwise a very nice beach

Easy to get to. On the way to the Beach Club, take the second left past the circle. There is a marker on the right side of the road that says “Shoreline Access.” You are going through a gated community so you must check in with the security guard and give your name and a phone number, and your car license is written down.

Hiking – If you really want to hike, you can take the Beach Access Trail. It goes from Puako in the north, past Holoholo Kai Beach Park, The Orchid, The Mauna Lani, through the Fishponds and Baby Beach, around Mauna Lani Point, to Honoka’ope Beach in the south. The portion from the fishpond to Honoka’ope Beach is the ancient Ala Kahakai trail and takes about an hour, but the scenery is great.
