We want to tell your story. A couples session on the Big Island of Hawaii is a great way to spend part of your day. It was such a joy to capture this couples session near the Kawaihae Harbor. They got a chance to relax without the kids, be silly, reconnect and share their love. Even with a little tropical rain they kept their smiles and had fun. At ultra-spective we strive to let you be you and share your story however you want. Come to the beach, grab a cold one and let’s have some fun. Be yourselves. Be natural and we will capture those moments of joy, of love, of longing and silliness. The cottage is perfect for couples. Hawaii TAX I D NO W(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

There are also an upstairs porch, kitchen and washer that could be used if you make arrangements with me. Interaction with GuestsWe love to interact with our guests. Some people just want to be left alone. We love our quiet time too! I work week days so the place is pretty quiet then. Week ends may bring some friends and grandkids. we are happy to give you your space. We are equally happy to share tips about local attractions and our local way of life. Host works weekdays,premises are quiet and vacant. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is rural but adjacent to an the town of Kapaau. The majority of homes are on large acreages and most have no children. Hale Nalu sits on one acre with only one adjacent neighbor and no one on the other 3 sides! We are only 2 minutes from the famous original King Kamehameha Statue! We are also a short 5-10minute walk to Kamehameha Park. Where there are free tennis & basketball courts, a swimming pool ,running tracks, a fitness room & weight room ( prior arrangement with me need to be made for the last two). Getting AroundWe are two minutes from the bus stop which takes visitors to other parts of the island, i.e. Waimea, Hilo and Kona. These buses only run once or twice a day! There is no local bus service within the North Kohala Area. It is probably best to rent a car, at least for part of your stay if long term. Then you may like to just "hang out" in Kohala by foot! Other Things to NoteOur dogs Duke, Buddy and Girlie are friendly. Girlie rules the roost and is a bit yelpie. However, they are good watch dogs. They are quiet and laid back during the day, unless there are visitors then they bark to warn us! We are a kid friendly family but ask that keiki (kids) respect our hale (house).

          Set in the middle of thirty acres of emerald green pastureland rolling down to dramatic oceanfront cliffs, Hawaii Paso Finos Ranch Retreat is a nature lover's dream escape. You will have the rare opportunity to stay at a working horse ranch and farm, while enjoying the scenic surroundings of the majestic North Kohala Mountains and living amongst our herd of lovely, gentle and friendly Paso Fino horses. Those interested may choose to take part in one of our equine programs, such as yoga on horseback, horse-to-human natural communication, or our special 'Hawaiian Equine-Assisted Learning' and human growth & development activities. (H.E.A.L.) In any case, everyone will have an opportunity to interact, groom, or just wander through the pastures with the horses. Your accommodations are set close to our horse barns with a first hand view of the arena and paddocks where the horses mingle with a variety of native and non-native birds. Many migratory bird species are spotted here during winter season, and of course, there is no better place to whale watch than from our private oceanfront meadow with a picnic table waiting just for you. We truly believe that the Niulii area of Kohala is just about the most peaceful, spiritual and naturally beautiful place on the Big Island- a perfect sanctuary in the middle of the Pacific in which to reflect, rejuvenate, relax and heal the mind and soul. We love to share all the best that the island has to offer in its therapeutic energy and serenity. Private in-room or outdoor massage can be arranged. Come enjoy a bit of history too. King Kamehameha I was born just nine miles away, and lived and ruled the Kingdom of Hawaii from here. The place names reflect his life and lineage. The property is situated on old sugar cane land, with historic homes and ruins nearby. Relax in the porch's hammocks while reading books provided on Kohala's special history. The ranch is also located minutes from Pololu Valley and Keokea Beach Park, with hiking and sunbathing opportunities. The retreat is well-equipped with a separate kitchen for cooking, featuring the innovative Ninja all-in-one cooktop, fryer, steamer and slow cooker. A gas BBQ is provided on the outdoor lanai dining option. Also a spacious indoor bathroom with waterfall shower, deluxe linens provided, and comfy pillow-topped queen bed with choice of pillow style. Recliner and soft love-seat couch make up the sitting areas. All rooms are appropriately decorated with artworks from local artisans. In the interest of sustainability, our ranch runs on solar power and utilizes a private catchment water tank. Our orchard fruits, pineapples and vegetables are offered to you when in season. Because we are an active, working horse ranch, occasionally other visitors do come out for sessions with our horses. We also need to do regular chores and training daily, but will always notify our guests first, as your peace and comfort is our main priority. We feel that you will truly sense the special power of this ranch land and its majestic surroundings- whether it's in the soft glow of the sunrise or the sunset clouds swirling in their kaleidoscope colors every evening, or the energy of the ever changing ocean surf blown by fresh trade winds. Maybe you will find tranquility in just watching the horses calmly grazing with the brilliance of a rainbow overhead. We want to welcome you to "our little piece of paradise on earth." MAHALO!

          That's pronounced "Ha-La-Va". The letter "W" in Hawaiian is pronounced like the "V" in English. It means to hold and to carry. It's the Hawaiian name for the small valley where the cottage is situated. This beautiful little cottage was custom built by the owners for the express purpose of sharing it with visitors from around the world. The setting is magical. With a Large screened lanai overlooking a flowing stream and tropical gardens, you'll never want to leave its peaceful environment. The fully equipped kitchen comes with everything you'll need for your culinary specialties. From the comfortable queen-sized bed you can step directly out onto the spacious, very private, open sun deck. There you'll find a romantic soaking tub for two, an outdoor shower and comfortable chairs to enjoy your morning coffee or tea. You'll love the seclusion, but this doesn't mean you'll be isolated. The cottage is a quick 5 minute drive away from the small, but charming, towns of Kapaau and Hawi. These two towns are reminiscent of Old Hawaii and filled with lovely galleries, restaurants, a coffee shop in each and hospitable folks. Travel three miles to the east of the cottage and you'll come literally to the end of the road. Here you'll encounter approximately 10 miles of deeply cut lush valleys that were once the breadbasket of the island and home to tens of thousands of Hawaiians. They're unpopulated now, and yours to explore. The first valley, Pololu, is a 15-20 minute hike down from the end of the highway to a spectacular rock-strewn black sand beach. Traveling west from the cottage, a 25-30 minute drive puts you at some of the finest, world class beaches of the South Kohala Coast. The cottage has beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkels, masks and fins for your use. The immediate area has a variety of fun filled activities to enjoy. There are Eco-Adventure tours of the scenic valleys via zip-line or kayaks. Or if you prefer there's also all-terrain vehicle tours. A little farther away there are helicopter tours, horseback riding, golf, etc. We have it all! The owners live just a mile and a half away and are ready to help make your stay perfect.
