Keaau Vacation Rentals

Keaau Travel Guide
Keaau area has vacation rental homes and lodging in Hawaiian villas and condo accommodations in Kea'au on The Big Island, HI, USA.

Keaau is a small Town on the eastern side of The Big Island of Hawaii, approximately 30 minutes south from the city of Hilo, at the junction of Route 11 (to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park) and Route 130 Keaau is a peaceful and relaxing place. It sits on the slopes of the Kilauea Volcano, amid an Ohia forest and tropical wild flowers. Found off the beaten path, Keaau is nonetheless a great central location, with easy access to all the major attractions on the "windward" side of the island.

The rustic countryside around Keaau is perfect for hiking and biking, and just 30 minutes from black sand beaches, swimming, snorkeling, golf, hot springs and tide pools, botanical gardens including the Hi”iaka’s Healing Herb Garden, and the museums and galleries of Historic Hilo Town. Lava Tree State Park is 15 minutes away and Volcanoes National Park is just an easy 45-minute drive from Keaau.

Enjoy exploring the historic plantation towns around Keaau, and there are several tropical flower gardens and nurseries within a short drive of town. The temperatures here are balmy, and Keaau is a great place to sit back and unwind and enjoy the fragrant Pacific Trade Winds.

Plan your next day's adventures from your vacation rental – in either a home rental, condo rentals or accommodation in cabins or villas. Owner Direct Vacation Rentals is a unique vacation home rental "matching service" that makes finding accommodations quick and easy.

A Beautiful Day: Like the rest of Hawaii, this is a beautiful and stunning location which is secluded and private. There are lots of really great spa activities at this attraction. A Hawaiian salt scrub in particular is very popular because this is a great way to cleanse the skin and look much better and more relaxed.

Panaewa Rainforest Zoo: This zoo is full of lots of rainforest animals. It is free to enter and explore. It's small but this does mean that you can get up close and personal with all of the animals. The spider monkeys in particular are very popular and are often loved by children. The zoo is located on Hilo which is very close to Keaau.

Kilauea Volcano National Park: Kilauea Volcano national park is located 6 miles away from Keaau in a town called Pahoea. Kilauea is an attraction that you really must see if you're visiting Keaau or anywhere close in Hawaii. Drive through this area during the day and you will get to see some amazing changes in the lava rock and how it changes throughout the week and month. All of Hawaii is formed by volcanic activity and there are still lots of beautiful volcanoes which are worth visiting.

Konu Honu Divers: This divers' tour company is located 8 miles away from Keaau but it's worth a visit for anyone who loves diving. This is located in a fantastic part of the country which has wonderful diving locations. Konu Honu Divers will hire out gear and even prepare it. The dive masters work as your tour guides under the water and these are experts in the local area. Diving by yourself might be fun, but by diving with an expert there's a much better chance for you to see things of interest.
