Pahoa house description

Welcome to our lovely ocean-front home only feet from the deep blue Pacific!! We built this stunning home in 2013 to share our love for Hawaii's east coast with others. It is a three bedroom, 2-1/2 bath direct ocean-front home with sweeping blue water views from Hilo to the southeastern tip of Hawaii. A large wrap-around lanai and wall-to-wall windows maximize the feel and openness of the living areas and provide amazing views! There is a master bedroom with a king-size bed on the main floor and two bedrooms upstairs - one with a queen bed, and one with two twin beds. Every bedroom boasts a beautiful ocean view of the dramatic shoreline!

The home is replete with brand new top-of-the-line appliances and equipment. It is completely turn-key with everything you would want and need for the perfect vacation. All rooms are tastefully appointed with teak, bamboo, and mango wood furniture creating a feel of old-Hawaii in a comfortable, contemporary setting. The custom kitchen is outfitted with everything you need to create gourmet meals for your friends and family. We've provided three flat screen TVs with 140 TV channels, board games and more for your enjoyment. Wireless internet will keep you connected to your own home and business - if you really feel you must!!

Activities are endless here in Puna. Hiking, swimming, snorkeling, surfing and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park are all just easy scenic drives away. The hip town of Pahoa is an effortless 15-minute drive away and offers boutique shops, multi-ethnic restaurants, and fully-stocked health food and grocery stores.

Our home is approximately 35 minutes south of Hilo airport and is situated in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The friendly atmosphere offers a great place to walk, run or stroll through Hawaii's incredible nature. We offer our home as a wonderful resting place and base for a memorable tropical get-away for you, your friends, and family!

Much aloha!

                      Hawaii Island isn’t just big, it’s still growing. The Island of Hawaii is the youngest island in the Hawaiian chain and is also by far the biggest, providing a vast canvas of environments to discover a variety of unrivaled natural wonders. This is the home of one of the world’s most active volcanoes (Kilauea), the tallest sea mountain in the world at more than 33,000 feet (Maunakea), the most massive mountain in the world (Maunaloa) and the largest park in the state (Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). All but two of the world’s climate zones can be found on the island and generate everything from lush rain forests to volcanic deserts, snow-capped mountaintops to beautiful black sand beaches. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a journey off the beaten path, you’ll discover it all on Hawaii, the Big Island.

                      Exploring the Puna District: To the south of Hilo, this area on the eastern tip of the Big Island stretches from the sea to the 4,000-foot summit of Kilauea volcano. On the coast you’ll find roiling ocean, black-sand beaches and a spring warmed by the volcano’s steam. Towards the volcano you’ll find rainforests, steam vents and the rugged landscapes of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

                      Puna’s most dramatic destination is Kalapana, a community that is partially covered by lava. In 1990, lava from Kilauea engulfed this historic town and the black sand beach at Kaimu. Today, the focal point is a viewing area where you can watch lava meet the sea. You can also explore the 17-acre Lava Tree State Park where a path winds through the lava rock molds of trees from the 1700’s. Many who live on Big Island say that Puna is Pele’s workshop, where the tempestuous Volcano goddess continuously creates and recreates the very land we live on.

                      Stop off at Pahoa, an old mill town that now features a row of clapboard shops and eateries along an inviting boardwalk. If it’s the weekend, detour at the roadside Makuu Farmers Market and stock up on fresh apple bananas, roasted macadamia nuts, Kapoho strawberry papayas and sweet rambutan. In contrast to the fields of black lava, the fertile slopes between the sea and volcanic summit are ripe with tropical fruit, orchids, anthuriums and macadamia nuts.

                      You’ll also find a scenic 12-mile string of beach parks and camp sites along the coast, each offering something worth exploring: MacKenzie State Park (heiau, ironwood forest), Isaac Hale Beach Park, Ahalanui Park (large seaside pond warmed by the volcano), and Waiopae Tidepools Marine Life Conservation District (incredible snorkeling among connecting tide pools). Kehena Beach is a secluded black sand beach hidden from view of the roadway.

                      Along the easternmost point of Hawaii Island is the Cape Kumukahi area, which offers scenic hiking, and what scientists insist is the world’s freshest air. Visit the Cape Kumukahi Lighthouse, which was spared by Pele from lava flow in 1960. You can also join the locals and hike a little over a mile south to Kapoho Bay where another coastal bath geothermally heated by Kilauea volcano can be found. Visit Puna to find amazing off-the-beaten-path discoveries.

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: We lived in Hawaii for many years and although work and family now call us to other places, our hearts remain in the islands of sun, rainbows, and waves. We look forward to the time when we can call Hawaii home again!

                      Why the Owner Chose Pahoa:
                      It was our dream to build a house in Hawaii and have the opportunity to share it with others. We chose the East side of the Big Isle because of its tranquility and raw nature.
