STUNNING Home on 1 Acre with Beautiful Water Features and Lily Ponds, Hale Ho'okupu boasts several water features and ponds on its private acre. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and include many fruit vines and trees, such as lilikoi, pineapple and papaya. You can literally pick your own smoothie fruit for breakfast! The large covered lanai space with seating and dining for the whole family is the perfect place to spend the afternoon or evening and includes an outdoor TV and propane grill.
*NO SMOKING! If the house smells of smoke, we will retain your security deposit.
*In the tradition of the islands, please leave your shoes at the door.
*Quiet hours are between 9pm and 7am. Please no loud noise after 9pm.
*Electricity is expensive on the Big Island. Make sure to keep all fans and lights off when not in use, and especially when leaving the home.
* Night Sky Policy: In effect for many years on the Island of Hawaii. It helps to ensure that our night skies are not grayed out with light pollution, most commonly caused from outside yard/porch lights. Please take the time to make sure that all outside lights are shaded and point to the ground and don’t leave outside lights on longer than needed so that we can all enjoy the magnificent night sky over the Big Island. If we all pay more attention to our own lighting everyone will notice the amazing night time wonder. . . the starry, starry night.
* Guests are responsible for taking their own rubbish to the transfer station/recycle center. This is where they collect garbage and recycles for the area and transfer it to different locations to destroy or process. There are instructions in the Welcome Binder. There is no garbage pickup here. Please recycle and separate your bottles, aluminum cans, plastic water bottles, and paper! Everything else can go in the general rubbish bins at the transfer station.
*Absolutely NO CLIMBING ON OR AROUND the ponds or waterfall!
*IF there is a garbage disposal, do not dump any food scraps in the disposal - we've cleaned out everything imaginable, from fish scales, to lemon grass and papaya seeds. Please put these things in the trash. You will be charged a service call and possibly a new disposal!
*Wifi is available for your use, HOWEVER, due to the location of this home, internet access is VERY limited - NO STREAMING, no YouTube, no Netflix, no uploading or downloading of any kind is allowed. Email only. We hope for better service providers in this area in the near future.
