Want a Hawaiian vacation? One where you stay in a comfortable home across the street from a Black Sand Beach? Where the view sometimes includes a volcanic eruption?
In late 1990, the ongoing eruption of Kilauea's Kupaianaha vent covered the famous Black Sand Beach at Kaimu Bay. At the same time a new beach was created a short distance away. From Kaimu, if lava is flowing into the ocean, you may see a plume of steam rising high in the air as the Big Island grows bigger still. At night you may view lava descend the mountain.
#1 Kaimu Bay is both comfortable and quaint. Our home was built with love. Trade winds breeze throughout the home. Kaimu is an environment of contrast. Black lava, clean air, blue ocean, and green foliage are host to mango, papaya, coconut, banana, pineapple, lychee, ulu (breadfruit) and hibiscus. House has 2 bedrooms, one queen bed and 2nd bedroom 2 twins, bathroom with shower-tub. Full kitchen with additional cooking facilities outside on the hand built lava rock BBQ where you are likely to spend most of your time with an additional lava rock shower.
The area has many parks. Pahoa is a ten-minute drive and has several places to eat. If you feel like the movies, a museum, or the Panaewa Rain Forest Zoo, Hilo (the island's largest town) is 35 minutes away. Your only neighbors, the Peleiholani's, caretake the property and can make suggestions about activities that will make your visit all you want it to be.
Contact Information: Please contact us by email. You will receive the rental application, directions, comments from previous guests for your review, and links to Big Island activities, including the latest volcano report.
