Kalapana house description
Let the soft rhythm of the nearby surf and the aroma of jungle flowers lull you into relaxation as you enjoy the spacious lanai of this new (2013) open concept home in Seaview Kalapana Estates. Our home is located on a secluded, dead end street, and is filled with sunshine all day.
Once on the lanai, where you may well spend all your leisure time, you will look out to jungle and traditional ohia trees. Meals can be cooked on the Weber grill and served at the large table, with seating for six.
Off one side of the lanai, through double french doors, you enter the great room, with large windows that offer views out to the jungle. Here is where you can gather with friends and family while you relive the day's adventures and cook up a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen, with gas range set into the large granite-topped island, microwave, full fridge, and dishwasher.
When it is time to sleep, there is the colorful bedroom with queen size bed (and direct access to the lanai through double french doors), a Scandinavian sofa that reclines to form a full size bed, or the queen size murphy bed on the lanai, should you or family want to sleep outdoors.
The large bathroom, adjacent to the bedroom and just past the stacked washer/dryer, has a tiled shower and plenty of counter space. You may decide to skip the indoor shower and exit through the bathroom door to the outdoor shower! This is the best place to wash off sand after a visit to the nearby, family friendly and clothing optional Kehena black sand beach.
For evening entertainment, enjoy your favorite movie on the 32 inch flat screen with DVD player.

Wednesday night comes alive at five o'clock with slack guitar and ukulele music accompanying the singers. Enjoy a variety of food from local chefs and art pieces from local artists. You might choose to cycle the Red Road that parallels the coastline and leads to snorkeling pools (Kapoho) and warm geothermal pools. Or you might hop in your car for a short drive to Volcano National Park to visit Kilauea crater and witness this active volcano. Nearby, including in Seaview, there are food and artisan street markets. SPACE, in Seaview and within walking distance of your holiday home, holds their market each Saturday morning starting at 8. Further afield is the Hilo Market, on Wednesday and Saturday, 6 a.m.-4 p.m. The Maku'u Market, just outside Pahoa (about 20 minutes from the house) happens each Sunday. It offers fabulous eateries for a hearty breakfast or lunch. The nearby town of Pahoa has several outstanding restaurants, including Ming's (Thai), Kaleo's (fine American seafood and burgers), and Luquins (Mexican, with fabulous margaritas). Kaleo's is known as 'making a name for itself as the place to go for innovative, Hawaiian-inspired local-style favorites...moreless

Owner response: Nancy, Glad to hear your stay at Home of We Three Guys was made even more enjoyable by the lanai bed. We hope the rhythm of the nearby surf lulled you to sleep.
Fantastic vacation spot!
Fantastic vacation spot!
I couldn't have been happier with this property!. Clean, spacious home in a quiet jungle setting. Trees and foliage at every window, it felt like the Hawaii of my dreams. Spacious modern kitchen, cozy bedroom, and vaulted ceiling living room. However, I spent most of my time on the spacious, covered, open air deck. A mile from the best beach in Hawaii...can't wait to go back!

A truly peacful retreat
A truly peacful retreat
We spent 17 days at We Three Guys' home last January and found it totally relaxing. We were truly away from the hustle and bustle of the city and found ourselves nestled into a small community. We spent our days laying around the lanai, going for walks around the community (the locals waved hello at at us), swam in tide pools and the ocean, .... We made friends with the locals including the neighbours' dog, loved the outdoor shower & loved the SPACE market on Saturday mornings, walked out on the lava fields, swam in the ocean - an absolutely lovely and peaceful holiday. We also took some day trips and drove the the volcanoes and over to the other side of the island but it was always nice to get back to the simple life at We Three Guys' home.

About the owner: We Three Guys, Dan, Steve, and our son Geoffrey, live in Seattle and on Orcas Island. We have enjoyed many trips to the Big Island, and recently completed our new home in Kalapana Seaview Estates. We have travelled extensively and have done home exchanges all over the world. We welcome visitors from all over to our Hawaiian paradise.
Why the Owner Chose Kalapana:
The Puna Coast district offers the opportunity to unwind in a laid back, friendly, 'off the tourist track' environment. Enjoy the local space market, Kehena black sand beach, Kalani Retreat Center, nearby snorkeling and Volcano National Park. There is also the funky town of Pahoa approximately 15 minutes away by car.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is new (2013) and offers an open concept to living, amidst vivid colors that capture the heart of Hawaii. Unlike other one bedroom homes in the area, 'Home of We Three Guys' is very spacious. The lanai offers a place to grill up your favorite Ahi tuna steak and relax with family and friends. Nearby neighbors are welcoming and friendly and very willing to share their secret local escape (such as Mermaid Pools and Green Lake).
