Vacation at Hale Kukui Orchard and Retreat
Welcome to our unique blissful vacation experience that awaits you with unmatched views anywhere from our 4.5 acre lush tropical property sitting back safely on a 750' cliff and with several short paths, a gulch with a swimming hole, a 650' waterfall, flower gardens, exotic palms, bamboos and a diverse orchard to explore. Our attention to service, quality and making your vacation a unique experience makes us a leader in the hospitality industry. At Hale Kukui we offer intimate, relaxing private cottages, each with a lanai (deck) with a private hot soaking tub, a private bathroom and a Kitchen fully stocked with the basics for cooking or a Kitchenette (in the studio), Wi- Fi, an outdoor grill and TV. Each of our 3 Cottages can sleep between 2 and 6 people or more with the use of our air mattresses if necessary. There is a Yoga/massage/meditation/art studio with an outdoor hammock surrounded breath-taking views. There is a caretaker's house where Paula and Dan are available 24/7 if you have any needs or questions about the area which is fairly central to all of the tourist spots you might want to visit on the island. Hale Kukui is probably the most peaceful and beautiful part of the island with a backdrop of the expansive Pacific Ocean, our organic permaculture non-commercial orchard for guests to enjoy. Waipio Valley with it's famous waterfalls cascading down 1000-2000 foot cliffs running 23 miles in the direction of Maui can all be seen from your bed on a clear day. Waterfalls may vary in number based on the recent rainfall. People have seen up to 11 at one time not including our own waterfall best seen from the black sand beach below our property in Waipio Valley. At Hale Kukui we strive to make the customer come first. Please use this web site to read about our noteworthy press and customer reviews! Explore possible adventures, find special deals, arrange a massage, yoga class or group retreat and destination weddings for up to about 50 people. Ask about honeymoon specials, recommendations for day trips and restaurants.Walk out to the bluff where there is perhaps the best view on the Island. Whales are often seen breaching during winter and spring. Temperatures during the day range typically between 75 and 85 F with cooler nights. Explore and try nature's bounty that come fresh from our orchard with over 50 different fruits, nuts, spices, citrus and perhaps as many different orchids, heliconias, flowering gingers and other flowers. We grow some Kona coffee, cocoa, passion fruit, coconuts,"magical" miracle berries, cloves, true cinnamon, turmeric, macadamia nuts, cashews, rambutan, lychee, star fruit, mountain apple, sopote, chocolate pudding tree, 11 avocado trees, soursop, breadfruit, mangosteens, mangos, papaya, jack fruit (the flavor of "Juicy Fruit" bubble gum), several types of citrus, bananas and much more.Waipio Valley is one of the most beautiful and touristed areas in Hawaii! At Hale Kukui, you have complete privacy with perhaps the best view of the Valley on the Hamakua Coast! We may be able to loan you a few bikes, snorkel gear, yoga mats, boogie board and point you in the direction that you might want to explore around the island. We are only 1/2 mile from the Waipio Lookout and another mile by road down into the valley. Some of the best restaurants on the island are in the nearby Hawaiian cowboy country, Waimea. In the immediate area, you can find horseback riding, ATVs, jogging, bicycling, swimming, surfing, hiking or going to Honoka'a for the farmers market and this quaint little shopping town has a theater just 10 minutes away. International airports in Hilo and Kona are fairly equidistant with easy drives on excellently marked paved roads. Waimea is about 25 minutes away with some amazing food, an airport to "island hop" and more shopping. Read on for a sense of proximity to destination points and nice day trips. Volcanoes National Park and the hot springs in Pahoa are an easy day trip through Hilo which has a large outdoor market every weekend. See the beautiful Hamakua coast, Akaka falls and the famous botanical gardens along the way if you set out early. In the opposite direction through Waimea, there is an easy drive to the white sand beaches on the dry desert side of the island and the top of Mauna Kea with its observatories 14,000 feet above sea level. It is taller than Mount Everest from the sea floor up and snow can often be seen on the top for the adventurous skier during the winter months! some of the world's best Marlin fishing, scuba and snorkeling are an easy drive to Kona! We are fortunate at Hale Kukui with almost always clear skies compared to Kona's VOG (Volcanic Fog). Several helicopter tours are also available. See our activities page for more!
