              Car: Necessary

              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.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              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. Follow/ 'like' us on Facebook ~ Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway Hawaii Island, aka the Big Island, was ranked number 7 as the World's Best Island destinations in Travel and Leisure magazine, Winter 2012. Come explore one of the planets' most beautiful islands for yourself.
