The Poolhouse (Waikoloa Village)

Accommodations: 1-bedroom 1-story studio unit (accommodates 2 people) with full kitchen and bathroom with walk-in shower (and outdoor shower) in Waikoloa Village (in walking distance of Waikoloa Elementary School) and a large POOL for you and your dogs’ use!

Fence:  YES…completely fenced-in!  Since there is a pool, County code requires a fence with latching gate.  From the parking area, you will walk through a gate and walk down two flights of outdoors patio stairs to the pool deck where The Poolhouse is located.  NOTE: If you have an elderly dog who cannot navigate stairs, you will have to carry him/her down the stairs.  Once you reach the pool deck at the bottom of the stairs, then it will be easy for any dog to move around. September 2 – 4, 2016 Review: The homeowner, Kelsey, lives on the property in a separate house with her very friendly, social...

Ala Kahakai Trail (Access Point: Spencer Beach Park) – PLEASE READ 4/6/16 UPDATE

Ala Kahakai Trail (Access Point: Spencer Beach Park) – PLEASE READ 4/6/16 UPDATE

Location: Ala Kahakai Trail is a 175-mile long trail broken up into segments.  Spencer Beach Park is just one access point that is 3 miles long, ending at Hapuna Beach.   ***4/6/2016 UPDATE: Dogs are prohibited in any County of Hawaii beach park, including Spencer Beach Park.  While many of us have hiked with our dogs from Spencer Beach Park, we have been (innocently) doing so under the radar due to a lack of County Parks & Recreation employees present at Spencer Beach.  We are currently looking into options, possibly other access points that welcome dogs.  I will be talking with both Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail personnel and DLNR (who has also has jurisdiction over the Na Ala Hele trail system) to see if we can find a solution.  Mauna Kea Resort will not allow any dogs on property, so that entrance is not an option either.  It’s interesting and a predicament…The person at the guard shack told me to enter from Spencer Beach Park “since no one from...

Address: 54-250 Lokahi Road, Kapa’au, HI  96755 Website: http://www.hawaiiislandretreat.com/ About: Hawaii Island Retreat’s “50 acres of needled grove and valley trails include legendary council stones and native trees, planted generations ago by a Hawaiian kahuna and his beloved wife.”  The owners of Hawaii Island Retreat have graciously allowed LEASHED dogs and their owners to use their hiking and jogging trails.  The one time I visited, I was unable to locate any type of trail, but I’m sure it’s somewhere here, and it’s such a beautiful location, it’s nice to just stroll around.  KEEP IN MIND: Visitors come here for meditation and a healthy living retreat, so I suggest bringing only your quietest,...
