Aloha - We are open for business. The hurricane passed us by and so has the lava flowing towards Pahoa. The lava is currently flowing to the North and East of us and downhill. Our business will remain open and uninterrupted in the event that the lava flows over HWY 130. The County of Hawaii has designated alternate routes around HWY 130 into Hilo. Awake to the sound of the song bird in the morning. You will love the real peace of being close to nature while staying at our Puna Rainforest Cottage. We are located at 1200 ft elevation so our temperatures at night are always cool and very comfortable. With the beach only 15 minutes away you can have the best of both worlds - sunny weather and restful rainforest. We are located near the Puna Forest Reserve and are surround by acres of ohia forests. Our Casa Azul Studio (1 room) cottage sleeps up to three persons with a queen bed and a futon, a full bath and a full kitchen. Our cottage all has a full lanai (porch) with a distant ocean views.
