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.

Charming Puna Hide-away
Charming Puna Hide-away
We enjoyed our stay in the "little pink house in the jungle". The house is comfortably furnished for a couple and has a homey feel to it. The surrounding grounds are lovely, with a variety of palms and ti plants, banana, lime and decorative bamboo, set against the ohia and hala forest. This house is in a family-friendly neighborhood with nice folks usually greeting you with a wave and a smile.. It's a comfortable drive into Pahoa, Ke'eau and Hilo. For fun at the beach,the tidal pools of Kapoho, the hot ponds and the black sand beach at Kehena are all easily accessed from here. The nearby towns offer a wide and tasty range of local and ethnic fare. The farmers markets are a fun way to shop for some of the best local produce on the planet and also offer unique arts and local crafts. If you choose to explore the wonders of East Hawai'i, this little home in the jungles of Puna is a great place to do it from.

This little house was a good location for seeing everything we want to see. We really enjoyed the privacy and it was very clean. You don't need an alarm clock as the neighborhood roosters like to come over every morning to say hello. We were amazed at how dark it gets at night which can make it interesting trying to find your way in the dark. The coqui frogs are abundant in this area and will sing to you through the night.

Owner response: It is a wonderful location for sightseeing, and so private for relaxing. The charm of the country and it's local roosters is delightful, the cocqui are amazing little creatures who make it sound like spring all year 'round. Excellent stargazing makes the dark skies of the Big Island an added benefit to all it's other attractions. So much to love!
cute house in the paradise
cute house in the paradise
This cute pink house was in the paradise location. very quiet, secluded and lots of green. The yards are huge and well maintained. there are guava trees and some banana trees. one of the banana tree was having banana on when I was there. it is close to many fun activity locations such as lava tree park, isac hale park (which is a swimmerable ocean park and you can also camp there), great red road, small cute town of pahoa and sunday farmers markets are very close, lava viewing area, natural thermal hot ponds, and kapoho swimming ponds and many more.. you can explore more everyday. I also was able to purchase fresh egg and raw honey from their neighbor. they were delicious. the house is new and maintained very well, also very clean. internet and telephone are working great entire house. I enjoyed quiet night with some movies from the dish network TV which had more channel than I expected. there is BBQ grill outside also. I stayed in other location of the island, and this is probably one of my favorite place to stay!!

Fantastic last minute vacation!
Fantastic last minute vacation!
I found this lovely home just in time for a last minute vacation site change. I was absolutely perfect for us (2 adults, 1 child)! The home has everything you need for any length of stay. Close to Hwy 137 which is a beautiful drive along the coast. Also, the Kapoho Tide Pools is an excellent place to snorkel which is also not far from the home (we liked it better than the Kona side, but to each is own of course!) The breezes come through the windows quite nicely making evenings and night time very pleseant and comfortable. Nature very much comes alive at night but we loved it, especially my 6 year old! I highly recommend this home to those who are considering it. Tina, who manages the home, is wonderful and very helpful. Great vacation on Hawai'i!

Owner response: Thanks for the wonderful review. We try hard to please. Pahoa and the natural attractions and people-friendliness of the Puna Coast make that job easy. It's always our pleasure to make any vacation - especially a last-minute getaway - an enjoyable, hassle-free respite from the stresses of the daily grind. Sometimes on Oahu at Waikiki, or even in Kailua-Kona or Waikoloa area, you can still feel the pressure and stress - from crowded sidewalks, slow-moving traffic and people in a rush to be someplace. Puna is very different, however. It's more like the original Hawai'i. It's never as wet they say. There is plenty of sunshine and plenty of smiling faces, abundant fruit and flowers, and loads of Aloha spirit, too. Besides, there as some stunning sights, lush valleys, tree-canopied winding roads, and isolated beaches and coves near by and within a short drive. Come see what they're missing on the Kona side. Make a point to stay in the real Hawaiian paradise in Puna - home of Kilauea and Volcanoes National Park.

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.
