Mountain View house description
“Napualanilehua”, Hawaiian for “Heavenly Lehua Blossom”, will serve your vacation needs to a level not customarily at vacation rentals.
Sitting at a cool 2400’ elevation, where nights can get down to the 40s and warming up to the comfortable low 80s during the days, Napualanilehua is ideally situated 20 minutes away (17 miles) from Hilo town and 20 minutes away (16 miles) from the world renowned Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Only about 5 minutes off the main highway, Napualanilehua is beautifully located on the back of a ¼ acre of land, in a small subdivision. Nestled within a ohia and waivi forest, Napualanilehu has a large inviting covered deck overlooking a huge front yard where kids could play all day.
Watch the adjacent forest for native Hawks during the day. In the evening, enjoy the uncountable amount of stars and cool clear nights.
Napualanilehua has everything you would need for a comfortable location in the mountain side. Ceiling fans are in the bedrooms and living room. A flat screen TV is connected to satellite programming. A full kitchen with stove, fridge, coffee maker.
The master bedroom features a King size bed. The additional room features a queen. The living room has a fold-out sofa for the extra guests. There is plenty of room.
All guests are greeted with fresh flowers and fresh fruit. Napualanilehua even offers bath robes for your use on those cool, but yet comfortable, nights.
Guests are also encouraged to use the complimentary postcards to keep in touch with friends and family while you are enjoying your stay.
If you are looking for a place to detach from the rush of normal life, or if you are looking for a convenient location on your vacation that is central to many fine activities, Napualanilehua would be a great pick.
Napualanilehua is very committed to promoting the Island's many products and services. Our fresh flower arrangments are produced locally by a small family business. Fresh fruit that awaits your arrival is hand picked by us the morning of your arrival, available from the many local farmers markets. Napualanilehua even provides sample Kona coffee blends and Hawaiian Macadamia Nut products. As our list continues to expand, we hope you find the local products very exciting.
Thank you for joining us on your vacation needs!

Cosy and convenient

Napualanilehua was a very nice and cosy place to stay for us and our three children aged 1, 4 and 8. It also proved conveniently located for exploration (by car) of the southwestern part of the island of Hawaii. We warmly recommend Napualanilehua to others.

Owner response: Aloha. We are very pleased to know you enjoyed your stay and was able to visit nearby attractions. To clarify for future guests though, Napualanilehua is on the eastern part of Hawaii Island, near Volcano National Park. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Great place in between Volcano and Hilo!
Great place in between Volcano and Hilo!
Great little place! Clean & comfy! Little details like fruit basket, coloring book, nuts, and umbrellas to use were great. Had some TV difficulties but they were helpful to resolve. Owners quick to communicate and help us! Would have liked air conditioning to help with humidity, as we all had trouble sleeping. Overall, great place and would recommend!

Owner response: Aloha, and thanks for the kind words. We at Napualanilehua enjoyed having you stay with us. Our small touches (fruit basket, etc.), is what makes the difference between "renting" and "vacationing" at someones home. We are sorry for the TV problems, but like you, we were happy it was resolved very quickly. With regard to the humidity, I am sorry you had trouble sleeping. There are a few nights each year that the winds dont blow, and unfortunately, you experienced that. We do hope the ceiling fans in each bedroom did help some. We will look into the suggestion of an AC unit, but with temps normally in the 70's, and as cold as the 50's, it is not going to be used much. We at Napualanilehua hope to have you visit again.

Extra mile to make something special
Directly from Guest Book: What a lovely location, nestled in the Ohia forest! Taylor & Lehua went the extra mile to make our stay something special. We were lucky enough to see the Merrie Monarch Festivals and catch the spectacular glow of lava in the volcano crater. Unforgettable trip!

Greatest Place I've Ever Been Abroad
This was one of the greatest place I've ever been abroad! The house is lovely furnished and has everything you need. It's very well located for exploring the Volcano National Park and in the night you just can hear the birds in the forest! Unfortunately we could not stay longer at this amazing accommodation. Thank you very much! Review submitted on Airbnb website.

Review submitted from AirBnB website:
We had a great stay @ Napualanilehua :) The house is half-way between Hilo and Volcanoes National Park. So the location is great and we loved the feeling of being off the beaten path :) Lehua and Taylor work very hard to create a home away from home, and everything has been thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The king and queen size beds were the most comfortable and fresh beds I have stayed in while traveling and we had wonderful sleeps. When we arrived the house was so clean and there was wonderful fresh fruit, flowers and local treats... Such a lovely surprise :) We would highly recommend staying here and would be very happy to stay here again :)

This beautiful place is centrally located on the Big Island. Close to Volcano National Park, Hilo and many more amazing attractions. We were greeted with the sounds of Hawaiian music, fresh fruit and local coffee! This house is in a beautiful remote location, so you can really escape all the hustle and bustle of city life. We would definitely go back!

About the owner: Born and raised on the Island of Hawaii, we wanted to provide guests with an experience they would never forget while visiting this great island. It has always been a pleasure hosting off island family and friends, and as a result, we decided to open this house to the world.
Why the Owner Chose Mountain View:
Mountain View has always had an impact in our lives. This residence was the first house designed and built by us. Our family is also from this area. The cool nights, quiet neighbors, close proximity to gas stations, schools, library's, and the Hawaii Volcano National Park made this location our favorite.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
'Napualanilehua' has a special meaning to us as this was the first home designed and built by us. With new carpets, fresh paint, and new furniture, we have turned this residence into a retreat you would not want to leave.
