Why Choose Hale KupuKupu?

Hale KupuKupu is located on the leeward side of the Big Island, halfway between Hilo and South Point.
Hale KupuKupu is one of the few traditional plantation-style homes on the Big Island available as a vacation rental that gives you the unique opportunity to experience the island the way that locals have lived for generations. The vacation rental provides not only an authentic Hawaiian experience, but it also gives you unmatched privacy in a peaceful rainforest garden environment. The house can sleep up to five people with two bedrooms and a daybed in the living room. The house has 1.5 baths and a chef-appointed kitchen. No homes in the area have central air conditioning or heat because the climate is mild. However, nights can get chilly. Hale KupuKupu is the only vacation rental in the area with both a wood burning fireplace, and energy efficient electric heaters in the bedrooms to keep the house warm in the evenings. Book Now
