Pahoa house description

You may have heard that Mme. Pele is cleaning her house and that there is an active lava flow that has reached the edge of Pahoa Town in the Puna District. As of 12/17/14, the flow front is moving toward Malama Marketplace and is about a mile from Highway 130. When/if this flow crosses Highway 130, services in Pahoa Town and travel time from Hilo to Hale Lezarde will be impacted. Two alternate gravel roads have been constructed to Leilani Estates and lower Puna and will provide access when the lava flow crosses Highway 130. In addition, Chain of Craters road is currently under construction to allow access to Lower Puna through Kalapana. Hale Lezarde and Leilani Estates are located uphill from the current flow and are not in danger from the current flow.

hawaii247.com is a great web site to stay up to date on the lava flow in Puna.

7 nights, 4 guests, $138.57 per night including tax & cleaning fee!! Ask about our kamaaina discount!

E komo mai. Welcome to Paradise. Our Hale and detached studio Ohana (separate guest house) are located on a private road in the beautiful Leilani Estates Subdivision on a secluded one acre lot, offering the perfect location to enjoy all that the Big Island of Hawaii has to offer.

Perfect for a couple or up to 4 people, we offer Hale Lezarde with Master Suite including a king sized bed and a jetted tub in the master bath, and a queen sized bed in the second bedroom with its own full bath. Hale Lezarde has a comfortable split floor plan for privacy, with a large, open living room, dining area and a spacious kitchen, with brand new ceramic tile flooring throughout. A large, island style screened in lanai is located off the kitchen for dining or relaxing.

The detached studio Ohana (separate Guest House) is separated from the main house by a covered outdoor breezeway and offers private accommodation for up to 4 additional people in one open space, with a twin over double bed bunk and a full size futon. The Ohana has a kitchenette with refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster and microwave and a 3/4 bathroom with shower. A perfect place for children or relatives traveling with you, the Ohana is a great way to provide for extra guests and provide more privacy for the main house. The Ohana cannot be rented separately from the main house.

Hale Lezarde is set back on the lot for privacy in a beautiful rain forest setting. The secluded one acre lot is landscaped with Hapu'u ferns, Ohia trees and palm trees and abundant flowering plants including anthurium, gardenia and ginger. There are mature, producing orange trees, banana trees and avocado trees, and a papaya tree as well as coffee and pineapple plants which we invite you to enjoy in season. You will know you are in Hawaii the minute you walk onto this property!

Leilani Estates Subdivision offers a community park about 2 miles from the house, with walking trails, basketball courts, a playground, and a picnic pavilion.

As our guest at Hale Lezarde, you will receive complimentary access to Guide Lezarde Hawaii, with the most up to date information about the Real Hawaii. You will also have the opportunity to choose additional a la carte services of Lezarde Travel, LLC, including concierge service, assistance with travel reservations and booking and guided tours. We also provide each of our guest families with a complimentary copy of the most recent edition of The Big Island Revealed, which we consider to be the best tour guide available for the Big Island.

Hale Lezarde is located 5 miles from Pahoa Town with some of the best dining on the East side of the Big Island, as well as shopping, fuel and the Sunday Farmer's Market in Pahoa Town. The Maku'u Sunday Market a short drive from Pahoa Town is a wonderful event with food, entertainment and an assortment of merchandise to appeal to every kind of shopper. Swimming and snorkeling at the world famous Kapoho Tide Pools or a soak at Ahala Nui hot pond is a 15 minute drive away, or take the 10 minute drive to Kalapana where you will find Uncle Robert's awa bar , Kalapana Cafe and the Wednesday night market with its amazing food, crafts and entertainment.

Discover Volcanoes National Park and see Madame Pele in action as she continues to make new land for our beautiful Island. Visit the Lava Viewing Area the end of the road for a spectacular night view of the lava glowing as it flows down the pali.

Hilo Town is a short 30 mile drive away where you can enjoy the great bargains at the Hilo Market or walk along Hilo Bay and see the Banyan Drive and Japanese Garden. Just north of HIlo, you will find beautiful Akaka Falls with a paved walkway through the lush tropical forest.

Take a trip off the beaten path and discover the real Hawaii with a trip to Punau'lu's black sand beach where the Honu 'ea (Hawksbill turtles) come out on the beach to bask in the sun. A stop at the Shaka Bar, the southernmost bar in the U.S. is a great way to relax on the way back. Kick back at clothing optional Kehena Beach and enjoy the Drum Circle on Sunday night. Kalani Spa with yoga classes, massage and swimming pool is located about 15 minutes from Hale Lezarde.

Come to Paradise and relax in complete privacy. As one of our guests texted us, “I know now why you keep coming back here! I really don’t want to leave!”

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Mark (also known as 'The Bear') and Sandy (also known as 'The Lizard' or 'Mme. Lezarde') Sandy have been vacationing in the Puna District of the Big Island since 2007, and have come to love it as a second home. Mark and Sandy are the founders of Lezarde Travel, LLC, a Hawaii Company, specializing in adventure and romance travel experiences for those seeking to see the world and live in it the way you always imagined it could be. Currently, Lezarde Travel, LLC is arranging select trips according to our interests, and we are open to arranging unique experiences for those clients willing to work with us in our early days. Lezarde Travel, LLC is also proud to offer rental accommodations at Hale Lezarde, our vacation home on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Come, be part of the Story.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pahoa:
                  After bringing a group of friends to the Big Island in May 2012 for the Transit of Venus, we found we had an extra week to ourselves and Mark suggested that we look at lots with a plan to build 'some day'. But when we found Hale Lezarde, we knew we had found our dream home in paradise! Hale Lezarde has all the features that we were looking for in a vacation home: The peace and tranquility of a secluded and private one acre lot, a home with Ohana providing plenty of room for family and friends, and the location in the Puna District of the Big Island with it's unique natural beauty and energy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have traveled the world extensively and have never found a place more beautiful or more relaxing than the Puna District of Hawai'i. The swimming and snorkeling are amazing and the water is always warm! We love the weekly markets looking for bargains and especially the Wednesday Night Market at Uncle Robert's in Kalapana, where the party is always jumping and you always feel like family. Kaleo's in Pahoa Town has become our favorite restaurant and we celebrated Thanksgiving there in 2012! We hope you will be our guests at Hale Lezarde and experience the beauty of the rain forest and the serenity of being on Island Time!
