Keaau bungalow description

Absolute Oceanfront Haven has an Oceanfront Studio with Deck as well as another bathroom accessible from pool and deck. Swimming pool is oceanfront and property is next to statepark for walking along tide pools and hot ponds that you can wade in on calm ocean days. Has instant hot/cold filtered water for tea/ Coffee maker, fridge,microwave, bbq. toaster and Panini grill for pancakes/eggs/bacon too. (outdoor kitchen will be built later in the year.) 3 outdoor tables and MANY chairs, for preparing 'pupus' and your meals plus sunlounges for in the pool and poolside. A new loveseat swing awaits your whale watching! Adults only,as the pool is deep. Adult atmosphere here is suitable for anyone over 18 but bars,shops and restaurants are a 15 minute drive, so perhaps over age 25 and couples are happiest not 5 minutes walking or driving to bars
The queen bed is a real queen bed.

Please read more descriptions about our area to see how well you would like visiting the big island of Hawaii. This east coast is similar to Hana on Maui, much more tropical than the touristic areas, but still within 1/2 an area of a larger city with all the amenities and within 15 minutes of markets and a charming Pahoa town, hot pond heated geothermally next to the ocean in a protected scenic rock wall with showers,toilets,picnic benches. We are 7 miles from town and the road is straight without ANY stoplights to town. Beware some remote places are accessible by muddy rocky roads, no cell or internet services, even off the grid without electricity. The coqui frogs are not outside your window here as there is a very large deck raised 4ft up and surrounding the guest house,called Ohana(means family in Hawaiian). A Hui Ho...welcome!
