Pahoa house description

It's a fascinating time to be in the Puna district. Kileaua volcano has been following continuously since 1989, mainly near, and bordering, the Hawaii Volcano National Park. As of June 27th, a new finger had developed. This is a ground flow only, and does not erupt into the air. It is heading towards the town of Pahoa. We are located about 3-4 miles laterally from the current flow. Our access to Hilo, and hwy 130 should not be affected. Our subdivision, Ainaloa, is most unlikely to have access cut off to it, as we are considered a very safe distance from the present day flow. The present lava flow is creating light to moderate smoke conditions, as the lava is creating very localized small brush fire burning. The conditions will vary based on materials burning and wind direction. Guests staying at our home have commented that they are still very satisfied with the air quality near our rental. Presently the town of Pahoa, and points beyond, are still accessible by regular roads / routes. In the advent that Hwy 130 is covered with Lava, near the town of Pahoa, they have created basic alternate roads, making the area beyond Pahoa still accessible, by a more circuitous route. We feel extremely FORTUNATE that our home is safe and still available to offer as a rental. ( As a side note; our home is a very solid structure, as we safely weathered a Category 1 Hurricane with no damage to our structure. ) The internet is a great resource for information about the June 27 Lava Flow, and we welcome any questions that you may have about our home and surrounding area. It is a dynamic time, with new earth being created daily! Come and enjoy our peaceful home, and explore and enjoy the East side of the Island. We look forward to your inquiries, and we appreciate the opportunity to be your host during your travels.

It's a great house. This is a clean and affordable place to stay.

We are conviently located in the tropical district of Puna, on the Big Island of Hawaii. We are a logical gateway from which you can explore the strikingly beautiful, utterly raw, and uncrowded natural surroundings of East Hawaii. We are a 20 minute drive from the Hilo International Airport, a 5 minute drive from the town of Pahoa, a 20 minute drive to the sunny Kapoho beach parks, and an easy 40 minute drive from Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. Come relax, unwind, and fill your days with fascinating activities.

'Paradise Getaway' is located on a 1/4 acre lot, in Anialoa subdivision. Our house is surrounded by undeveloped lots on 3 sides, increasing your feeling of privacy. Our yard is tropical and ever developing. My husband David designed and built this house himself. Upon entering you will feel at home, with our comfortable and open floor plan. It has vaulted open beam ceilings, and plenty of large windows, allowing for tropical breezes to flow thru. Every room also has ceiling fans, it is easy to adjust the temperature based on air flow. We have a fully equipped kitchen with many cooking and dining conveniences, so relax and cook at home, or grill out on our charcoal grill. Our sleeping area has a new and comfortable queen sized bed. There is a large closet with room for luggage, and drawers to unpack for your stay. We also have a fold out futon where 2 additional people can sleep. Our bathroom is clean, spacious, and has a full sized bathtub / shower which is heated by solar hot water. Most houses in the Puna district rely on rain catchment systems for their water needs. We invested in a 10,000 gallon concrete rain catchment tank, complete with a state of the art UV filter. This ensures ample water supply, and a delicious and safe water source for all your drinking, cooking, and bathing needs. When comparing vacation rentals in this area, keep these quality eco-friendly features in mind. To help you get out and enjoy we provide the following: beach towels, sand mats, basic snorkel gear, boogies board, small ice chest / cooler, kids sand toys, and flash lights for your night time lava viewing. Don't forget, we have on-site laundry! A FRIENDLY NOTE: Our house is on a quiet street, and we request no loud parties. We have a strict NO SMOKING / NO PET POLICY for the comfort of all future guests. THANKS

People are always curious what the weather may be like; it is dynamic! A 'typical day' might be sunny and warm with some fast moving clouds and a short rain squall. It frequently rains at night and in the early morning, keeping it cool and comfortable for sleeping. The combination of sun, warmth, and rain, is what makes it look so tropical, and beautiful! It is helpful to pack a long sleeve shirt / pants, closed toe walking shoes for the lava, and a light rain coat. The following are all within an easy days drive: Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, Hwy 130/Kalapana -previous lava flows, snorkeling at tide pools, soaking at warm ponds,surfing /swimming, farmers markets,Lava Trees, tropical gardens, zoo, downtown Pahoa and Hilo (restaurants/museums/shopping)

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: I am a carpenter from Alaska. I came to Hawaii, designed and built this house myself. We enjoy it for some part of the winter, and hope you will do the same.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We enjoy our water source being so eco-friendly (water from the rain / warmth from the sun). Our home is open and breezy with large windows to gaze at the moon, stars, and the sunrise. Our entire family enjoys our large deck daily. We live on a quiet, rural street - yet it is easy to get out and enjoy the tropical beauty that surrounds us. Our 3 year old daughter loves learning about the volcano, and she has even seen fresh lava flowing at night!
