Pahoa farmhouse description

With a 5 STAR RATING, the Jungle Farmhouse provides a unique Hawaiian experience where you can enjoy nature and seasonal fruit from our farm -- including fresh avocados, tangerines, passion fruit, pineapple, lemons, papaya, jackfruit and bananas. We also provide you with farm fresh eggs from our free range chickens and ducks. Ferdinand and Franz, our two baby goats were born in November 2013 and we now have a working bee hive for natural pollination and fresh honey. The farm incorporates the lush rainforest with towering trees and we grow our food using the natural surroundings and permaculture techniques.

The location is great too! We are just minutes from Pahoa Village with great places to eat and shop, and close to Black Sand Beaches, Snorkeling, and Warm Ponds. Nearby farmer's markets provide more local
produce and locally crafted products.

The plantation style home has lots of windows and views of the natural surroundings, a washer and dryer, and covered parking. Two lanai (porches) on the front of the house and a huge screened lanai on the back of the house provides wonderful views of the tropical forest, gardens and farm. The lower patio features a dining table and gas grill and smoker too.

Built in 1970, it is a classic solid redwood home designed by the famous home builder Harold E. Hicks and features his signature design elements that include Clear Heart Redwood Interior and Exterior Single Walls. Oak Flooring was another key wood standardized design feature and offered durability and comfort as the lighter color of the oak complimented the redwood walls. Jalousie windows were a standard design feature to maximize the trade winds and, once again, the comfort of the homeowners.

The Living and Dining areas furnished with a great collection of antiques, are a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing. Oriental rugs compliment the oak floors and the windows allow for great filtered lighting and cool breezes.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need
and includes a great collection of vintage dishes, gas stove and oven, microwave, large fridge, mixer, toaster, and coffee maker and a bar and counter with stools.

The three bedrooms offer sleeping for 6 in beds and we
can provide extra futons so the house can sleep up to
eight or ten if you use the couches! Two of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open to the lanai and one features a half bath and walk in closet. Towels and linens are provided, along with beach towels too.

The main indoor bath features a tub and shower and sink and has slate tile and redwood trim. There is also a outdoor shower overlooking the garden with hot water too! Our hot water is heated by the sun, using solar panels when possible and when its cloudy our electric heater kicks in.

We also provide:
Secure High Speed Wireless Internet
Cable TV, DVD/CD Player, A good collection of board games, CD's, records and DVD's and Snorkeling gear

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Your Hosts, Danny and Matthew, who also own and operate the Hilo Bay Hale Bed and Breakfast in Hilo, opened the Jungle Farmhouse vacation rental in Sept. 2011 and live part time in a cottage next to the Farmhouse. Danny, who moved to Hawaii in 2004, is also a documentary filmmaker producing films for PBS Hawaii about protecting Hawaii's unique cultural and natural resources. His most recent film, SEEDS OF HOPE tells the story of how Hawaii is returning to traditional and local ways of producing food. Matthew has lived and worked around the world, opening and managing BORDER book stores in many different countries, including on the Big Island where he has lived for over 15 years. He also has lived and studied in Western Africa and Europe.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pahoa:
                  The property is very unique, with the house perched on a small hill overlooking the jungle, providing views of the forest canopy and farm. When we purchased the property it was already planted with mature coffee, avocado, anthurium, tangerine, banana, mango, and jack fruit. And it is surrounded by lush jungle, including pockets of native forests that are home to native birds, including the Io - the Hawaiian Hawk.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  The location is great because while you have lots of privacy you are just minutes from Pahoa village.
