Pohoiki house description

Enjoy a quiet holiday stay in our newly-built vacation home with all the modern conveniences: 1 bedroom / 1 bath (sleeps 2 – 4). Fully equipped kitchen connected to public water system. Wireless internet, HD satellite TV, computer table with printer/scanner/fax. Large, private yard and two lanais for outdoor enjoyment Very reasonable rates. Pets welcome. Great setting for relaxing at home, wonderful location for excursions and day trips, away from the bustle and traffic of the Kona side.

Located in lush rain forest south of Hilo. Within 6 minutes of Pahoa town for shopping and dining. Close to some spectacular natural sights – near Kapoho Thermal Ponds, and not far Kehena Black Sands (clothing optional) Beach. An easy drive to many attractions ( Mauna Kea, the Volcano, etc.).
Our newly-built Big Island vacation home was designed for that purpose. Unlike many Hawaiian vacation rentals, you will not be cramped in a condo or relegated to an ohana unit, but have a a large private yard and 2 lanais to enjoy.

Located in a secure neighborhood just across the road from Leilani Estates, you have all the conveniences of being close to town, but the advantage of country living with friendly neighbors and quiet streets.

This is a comfortable,space-efficient home. It has a large covered lanai across the front of the house for rainbow viewing, and even more spacious rear lanai for enjoying your coffee and our spectacular sunrises, as well as the warm Hawaiian sun, in complete privacy.There is one separate bedroom with a queen bed, along with a bathroom with tub/shower. The living room sofa-sleeper opens into a full queen size bed – with an extra mattress pad and pillow-soft mattress topper.

There is no central air conditioning. Most nights are rather cool (68-72 F) so the ceiling fans (living room, bedroom), floor fan, and attic exhaust fans keep it cool and fresh
The house is ready to satisfy your needs for comfort and for enjoying life while on vacation. The living room –dining room - kitchen areas are in one great room with a vaulted ceiling. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware and utensils, dishes and flatware for six. There is extra storage space, a large capacity refrigerator, and storage containers. The kitchen is designed and equipped well for meal prep or just warming something up.

          Lava viewing just down the road at Kalapana access. Also, boat tours to view the lava entering the ocean depart from Pohoiki boat ramp, only 7 or 8 minutes away, when it's flowing. Sea turtles like to hang out a Isaac Hale park, next to the Pohoiki boat ramp, where the is also a small, natural geothermally heated pool just a two minute walk away on a good path. Stargazing on Mouna Kea.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: We live and work in the fabulous state of Washington, but sometimes the weather isn't so good. So, we just acquired this lovely home after enjoying it as a vacation rental for the past 3 years. Here on the mainland, we travel with our two rather large dogs, so we made this a pet friendly location, as they are not so easily found.

          Why the Owner Chose Pohoiki:
          What's not to love? Perfect weather, close to town, beaches hot pond, hiking, volcano, probably a lot of stuff we have yet to discover. We bought land here, planning to build, when the chance came to acquire this home. We saw it's potential and here we are.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Close proximity to all the activities we enjoy--swimming, hiking, beaches, farmers markets, Kilauea; but enough in the country for peace and quiet. The availability of local produce and reasonable farmstand prices is outstanding.
