  • Dog-friendly, wonderful place

    "We stayed here for two months while we looked for, bought and moved in to our new house. Our dog Chance made a new friend, the owner's dog Riley was lots of fun for him. Their other dog Bailey is a real sweetheart but getting too old to do much. But he's SUCH a nice dog! The owner's toddler likewise gave us joy, she's a beautiful and amazingly good-natured young lady. The owners are a delightful couple. They gave us lots of good advice, and were fun to visit with. Their house is on one side of the carport and the ohana (apartment) on the other side, so you have all the privacy you need but they are always nearby to answer questions or help out with any problems. The ohana was very comfortable, fully equipped with everything we could want. It's off the road back in the forest, and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. If you love nature this is the place for you! At night the coqui frogs will sing you to sleep. They are quite loud and it took me awhile to get used to them. If you're a light sleeper you may want to consider ear plugs. Unfortunately they are a fact of life on the Big Island. My wife on the other hand found their song soothing and says they actually help her sleep. There are no roosters nearby, a blessing as roosters crowing all through the night is a common problem in the islands. Likewise there are no loud dogs barking nearby to disturb you, just frogs chirping and the occasional rain shower to lull you to sleep. It's a half hour drive to Hilo and closer to an hour to the volcano park, but that also means you're closer to the Kapaho Tide Pools and the amazing snorkeling there. No matter where you stay on the Big Island you'll need to drive a lot to see all the attractions, and this place is not too far out of the way compared to other locations where you might stay. All in all I think this was a wonderful place, reasonably priced, and I definitely recommend staying here."

  • Enchanting home

    "A lovely home, great location, very close to the ocean and a great view and outdoor deck area. There is one home (with a big roof) in between the house and ocean, but still a beautiful setting with gorgeous grounds all around. The pond is magical and the house very spacious and tasteful. The kitchen has an amazing view and nice appliances but I could have used a few more baking items (then again I like to prepare lots of food on vacation...). Overall a great experience that we hope to repeat if the house is still available next year."

  • A comfortable home-away-from-home

    "Two couples and one child comfortably stayed here for one week in June 2014. The property is beautiful, private, and very clean. We enjoyed eating many meals out on the spacious deck and used the grill several times. In the evening we would sit out on the deck, look at all the bright stars, and it was amazing. The frogs sang us to sleep each night, and because it was so private, we never heard any cars. There were flowering bushes on the property that smelled wonderful (Jasmine?) and the entire house was lightly scented with the perfume. We wished we were able to stay here longer; it was our favorite of the three places we stayed."

  • Grand mother and Grandfather

    "The perfect house . Floor plan was wonderful. Finishes clean and accommodating. We did not use the Ohana as we thought we might because our friends were not able to join us."

Pahoa Travel Tips

Discover Hawaii's Volcano With Pahoa Vacation Rentals

Located in the Puna District near Kilauea Volcano, Pahoa vacation rentals are less than an hour from Volcano National Park. A trip to this area offers spectacular views of the world's most active volcano. Watch ash plumes fill the sky and eruptions flow from the volcano's tubes. Tours explore lava tubes, craters, and steam vents. Locals celebrate the volcano as the fine work of the goddess Pele. At night from the dining room of your rental home in Pahoa you can watch the red glow of lava as it makes its way down to the ocean.

Explore Nature From Pahoa Vacation Houses

Pahoa vacation houses are a good starting point for enjoying the Big Island. From Mid-November to April, humpback whales make the waters surrounding Hawaii, their home. Private lanais with views of the Pacific Ocean provide a relaxing place to watch dolphins and sea turtles as they swim and play. Mango trees line roads from Kapoho to Kalapana, and you'll find a hot spring lagoon open to the public near Pohoiki Bay. While many people think of Hawaii's white and golden sand beaches, the Puna District is home to the state's black beaches. Formed from black lava stone, Beach Naupaka and Kehena Black Sand Beach create a striking background to the white waves of the ocean.

Enjoy the Water Near Puna District Beach Rentals

In the Puna District, beach rentals line the shore, putting you close to water activities like kayaking and swimming. At nearby Kapoho, you can snorkel in marine-sanctuary tide pools. Ahalnue Beach Park offers a geothermal-heated tide pool warmed to over 90 degrees. Relax and let the water massage your body, known as Watzu. If you prefer an actual massage, schedule a Lomi Lomi massage to help your relax.
