Our Stay At The Bali House & Cottage – Big Island Of Hawaii
On our recent and very first trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Bali House & Cottage located on the Hilo side of this huge and diverse island in paradise.
First, check out their excellent short video on this very unique rental home and cottage located across from the very popular Kehena Black Sand Beach.
Be sure to turn your speakers on and enjoy traditional Hawaiian music while viewing! 🙂

Over the past several years, we have traveled to Islands of Hawaii a number of times from the west coast of Canada. It’s quick and easy to get to, with affordable flights throughout the year.
This was our first visit to the largest island in the chain, and it was amazing!
Hawaii Island is enormous in size and the largest of the Hawaiian chain of islands, covering an area of well over ten thousand square kilometres. It will take about 300 miles of driving to cover the entire island, giving you an idea of just how large in size it is.
This is an active volcanic island where you can experience Volcanoes National Park, home of two active volcanoes named; Kilauea and Mauna Loa.
What amazed me most visiting this island was how diverse each region is, with immensely different terrain and ten different climate zones for you to experience.
Truly unique and unlike any other Hawaiian Island.
The Bali House & Cottage – Location
There are six unique regions on the Big Island and I highly recommend you experience all of them at some point during stay. From Hilo and Puna on the eastern side, to the very popular Kona and Kohala regions on the west side, you’re sure to find one that’s ideal for you.
The Bali House & Cottage is located in the remote and very unique Puna Region of the island. This region is on the Hilo side of the island and about a 45 minute drive south of town.
A very quiet and diverse area where you will find lush vegetation, rain forests, volcanic fields and very rugged spectacular coastline.
The Bali House is situated directly across the street from Kehena Black Sand Beach. This is small but very popular clothing optional beach on the island where everyone from all ages is welcome, with or without bathing attire.
You’re within easy driving distance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Ahalanui Park (large open thermal ponds), popular outdoor markets and so much more.
If you enjoy peace and serenity, getting away from the main touristy areas of the island and listening to the hundreds of Coqui frogs at night among the thick surrounding vegetation, then you’ve come to the right place!

My wife and I enjoyed an outstanding week at the Bali House and taking in all the attractions and sites of the Big Island of Hawaii. You definitely need to rent a car when staying on this island in order to get around easily and see all the different regions the island has to offer.
Each region is special in its own way and we loved visiting each and every one throughout our stay.
So get off the beaten path, step out of the box and enjoy so much more of what Hawaii Island has to offer, other than the fabulous white sand beaches where all the tourists tend to flock to.
Don’t get me wrong, we loved the beaches on the Kohala Coast, but visiting and staying on the other side of the island is unique and very special in what this part of the Island has to offer.
Having the opportunity to stay at the Bali House & Cottage, made our visit all the more special.
Below, I have listed the official website to the Bali House and Cottage for your convenience, where you can access much more detailed information, including rates and contact information.
As well, I have listed a wonderful Hawaii Tourism Authority Website, where you can access excellent information on all the Hawaiian Islands to help plan your tropical vacation in paradise!
Safe and Healthy Travels! 🙂
