Big Island Retreat

Our Story

Tucked away in a quiet local neighborhood and steps away from Kahalu’u Beach, Big Island Retreat invites you to relax in a comfortable and natural setting.

We have created a unique and wonderful vacation rental consisting of 8 studio suites with kitchenettes, 2 one bedrooms (one with a full kitchen), and a two bedroom, two bath Luxury Suite with full ocean views, a comfortable sitting and common area and outdoor kitchen hale all surrounded by tropical landscaping, birds and the sound of the ocean.

We welcome you to come enjoy and see why this is the perfect place to spend your next Hawaiian vacation.

Historical Landmark

St. Peter’s Catholic Church is one of the smallest regularly used churches on the island. Built in 1880, the building has survived Kona storms, Hurricane Iniki and even a change of location. In 1912 parishioners disassembled the entire church, piece by piece and moved it from La’aloa Beach to its current location on the north side of Kahalu’u Bay. St. Peter’s church is used as a point of reference when locating Big Island Retreat.

At over 13,000 ft, near the summit of Mauna Kea, the Keck Observatory explores the local and distant universe from the largest and most scientific productive telescopes on Earth.  On the East side of the island sits Kilauea, the most active of the 5 volcanoes that together form the island of Hawai’i. There are only 2 places in the world where you can snorkel with giant Manta Rays and one of them happens to be right here on the Big Island. The nighttime Manta Ray dives are a sight to behold!
