Our house is relatively new-it was completed in July of 2004. It has excellent privacy and is near numerous things to do and places to see. The house is close to Volcano National Park. It is also very near an excellent snorkel area (less than ten miles). Other nearby attractions are a 'hot pond'-a swimming pool with warm water heated by a lava hot springs. Lava Tree Monument is very interesting and is immediately adjacent to Leilani Estates.
The house has a huge covered deck or lanai which is 10x40'. We eat all of our meals on the deck which has a very beautiful view over the back portion of our property. One additional feature of our house is that it has a master bedroom and master bath at each end of the house, which makes it very nice for two couples. Between the two ends of the house are a small bedroom with bunk beds, a 1/2 bath, the living room and kitchen/dining area.
Our family of 4 stayed in a hotel room on Oahu and in Kona before arriving here. The space at the house was incredible. There are neighbors, but the lot is very large and secluded. My wife felt a little uneasy the first night (too many episodes of Criminal Mind), but she got used to it quickly. My daughter enjoyed looking at all the stars at night. All in all, a very pleasant stay. The house has everything you'd need. But the BBQ has seen better days.
Just a few words about the location. It's very remote. I'd recommend a GPS. It's about 15 min to the volcano viewing area (where you have to bike or hike 4 miles to see the lava hit the ocean). It's about 30+ min to Hilo - check out Zippy's for great malasadas. It's about 1 hour to the volcano park. No good beaches around. Almost all beaches are covered in lava rock which doesn't make the most pleasant experience. Water shoes are essential equipment.
One more thing, the internet is very fast, once I figured out the correct password.
Our family stayed here for six nights and we had a great time! The house was clean and bright with a beautiful surrounding yard. If we have the opportunity we would stay here again without hesitation.
We felt very much at home in the house. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed having meals on the back porch.
Our family of five adored our stay at this lovely, private, clean and welcoming home in Pahoa. Great spot to use as a home-base for all of our exploration of the surrounding areas such as Hilo, Akaka Falls, local tide pools and beaches, and the volcanic lava viewing. We loved the songs of the birds by day and the coqui frogs by night! The lanai was spatious and great for outdoor meals and morning yoga. We also liked the neighbourhood for our morning jogs. The beds were comfortable and it was great to have three bathrooms for the five of us! Overall, just an amazing stay!
If you like remote away from the city, then this is the place for you. You need a car to get anywhere.
We are parents of 2 boys aged 2 and 8 who stayed at the property December 2016. Comfortable, well equipped. Great privacy- seemed like we were the only people for miles, even though in a neighborhood. Lovely to have access to fresh fruit (citrus, starfruit) - the kids had fun picking it off the trees and eating it fresh. They also loved scouting for frogs and geckos on/under the back deck. There were so many bathrooms in this place that we didnt even use them all! Appreciated the coolers to use and the pool noodles for floating in the warm pool at Ahalanui Park which was only a short drive away. Also found a new treasure close by- the warm Queens Bath at Isaac Hale Beach Park, also not far from the home. We had to interact with the property manager a couple of times due to random questions and she was a pleasure to deal with. We definitely recommend this property- had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay here!
