Beautiful custom vacation home on 2 private acres in a rainforest setting all for yourself with no one else around.
The house is romantic, peaceful and clean. Perfect for honeymooners, personal retreat, Eco travelers, yogis, adventurers, or anyone who just wants to get away from it all, but still be close enough to all that the Big Island has to offer.
We are centrally located in Puna, 15 miles south of Hilo, 5 miles outside of the quaint town of Pahoa with all its restaurants and shops. Spend your days exploring the near by warm ponds, black sand beach, snorkeling, hiking, restaurants, waterfalls, Volcanoes National Park, current lava flows, Mauna Kea summit, museums, and much more.

We are located close to Volcanoes National Park and Kalapana where the active lava flows down the volcano and meets the ocean. This is one of the world's most active volcanoes and viewing is quite easy and accessable. The park is other worldly and the flows are fantastic. You can view by helicopter, boat, car or my favorite, on foot. Local guides available and recommended. Not to be missed, a real bucket list experience.

About the owner: Fun loving couple, semi retired from the entertainment business, now living in the jungles of east Hawaii. World travelers, we spend most our days organic farming and building our rammed earth house. We live up the road from the Rainforest Hideaway on a separate property. Our friendly and well behaved dogs, Jackson and Frankie, often join us to greet our guests upon arrival. Andrew, originally from Australia, designs and builds custom homes and is a FEO Officer and tanker driver for the local Volunteer Fire Department. Connie is a wardrobe stylist and yoga instructor at a local yoga center.
Why the Owner Chose Keaau: The Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway is a unique and very private property. Located in a rare old growth jungle/rainforest area of Puna with many native and exotic plants and trees, yet still just a mile from the highway, 200 ft. off a paved road. (unpaved road is maintained and fine for rental cars) The perfect location to get away from it all but still be close enough to all the sights, restaurants and activites. Many other places you share the house or property with others. This is 2 acres all to yourself, beautifully landscaped with many extra touches to make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway has been awarded 2014 Certificate of Excellence for consistently earning top ratings from our guests.
