Opihikao house description

Pua Lani House

Pua Lani House is situated on the beautiful Puna Coast of the Big Island, approximately 30 miles southeast of Hilo. Just a 4 minute stroll from ocean tide pools, start each morning taking in the spectacular Hawaiian sunrise. The house is located in an intimate jungle neighborhood on a safe, yet slightly bumpy, dead-end dirt road.

The property has a large grass lawn with many fruiting trees including banana, mango, papaya, coconut, lime, orange, fig, rolenia, abiu, breadfruit, lilikoi, kumquat, macnut, sapote,mulberry and more. We also have free-range chickens that lay eggs in nesting boxes that you can collect for your morning breakfast. Great place for the kids to run free in safe private environment. The yard is well hidden from the street, so clothing is optional.

The property is home to some adorable geckos who faithfully gobble up mosquitoes that stray into the house when the door is open! Geckos are found in practically every home in Hawaii and they complete the Hawaiian experience.

Soak in the reclining tub in the bathroom with a view of jungle or enjoy the outdoor shower surrounded by mango trees and tropical ferns.

Relaxing on the large lanai overlooking the lawn and orchard, you may spend your whole vacation enjoying the property and nearby tidepools, yet the house is the perfect base for exploring the unique natural and cultural heritage of the Big Island. Hilo is the orchid growing capital of the world and is home to several magnificent botanical gardens, museums, galleries, and restaurants. The main attraction of the area is Volcanoes National Park, a 45-minute drive away, where you can see active lava flows and witness the formation of the newest land on the planet. The closest town to the house is relaxed Pahoa, a quick fifteen minute drive away, with a grocery store, a large farmer's market, a health food store, banks, restaurants, and other conveniences.

All along the coast in the rural Puna District, you will discover special places to explore, from scenic parks to sheltered coves. Three miles from the cottage is exotic Kehena Beach, where palms and ironwood trees frame a lovely crescent of black sand. Two miles in the other direction is MacKenzie State Park, where steep lava cliffs form a rugged, rocky shore. MacKenzie Park also has interesting hiking trails and accessible lava tubes for spelunking. Five miles from the cottage is Ahalanui State Park with a naturally heated fresh/salt-water swimming pond. And, a little further down the road is Kapoho Tide Pools for some of the best snorkeling on the east side of Hawaii.?

Lani Pua House is the perfect eco-retreat, where you can really get away from it all. We have been proudly off the grid since 2001, operating with alternative energy - solar power and catchment from the rain for water. Because we are on solar, please leave you energy draining alliances at home. Examples are thing that have heating elements such as blow dryers and curling irons. Coffee press is provided. Charging ipads and laptop computers is welcome. Wireless internet is provided, yet due to our remoteness, is occasionally down.

Leave your busy life behind and renew yourself in simple living. The splendor of old Hawaii and tropical paradise awaits you!

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: Hi, My name is Kelley and I bought this sweet piece of property in 2000. With a little help from friends we built this sweet cedar home just walking distance from the ocean. My daughter was born here and spent the first 8 years of her life chasing chickens barefoot and climbing fruit trees. I loved that at 3 years old she could safely play outside in the yard while I kept an eye on her from the large lanai (porch) or from one of the many oversized windows. Our family is currently residing in Boulder Co., but love getting back to the island and our custom home as often as we are able. We hope you feel the love and good vibes that have gone into making this house a home.
