About Trish Marciel

We built our Hawaiian Getaway home in 2007, and enjoy sharing it and the amazing sites of the Big Island with our Guests. Close to Hilo Town yet in a quiet peaceful forest.

Trish Marciel purchased this house in 2007

Why Trish Marciel chose Puna District

The area is 700 ft. above sea level, very cool at night for sleeping. The drive down the hill is lovely with the view of the Pacific Ocean in front of you. The birds love the Ohia Forest the house is in, their songs are wonderful background music for your entertainment. The location being so close to Volcano National Park allows a quick trip to the park at night to see the orange glow from the crater, so you don't get home so late.

The Big Island of Hawaii is like no other place on Earth. To be on a tropical island, surrounded by the gorgeous royal blue Pacific Ocean and have an active Volcano that continues to add more land to the island is truly awe inspiring. And top that off with a 14,000' mountain that has a snow-capped peak in winter...what else can you ask for....

What makes this house unique

Our Guests appreciate the Budget friendly accommodations and are pleasantly surprised with all the amenities. Having a manager nearby also puts their minds at ease in case they need assistance. The rental is in a residental area so very easy to find yet very private because of the Ohia Forest on both sides.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our short stay here in Pahoa with you. This is really an ideal location to see many sights and we got used to the nightly frog concert real quick :) Your condo really surprised us with it's space and well stocked and kept interior. Thanks again also for your patience and accommodation with payment from Europe.

Great location and nice accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults in our party and this was a clean, comfortable house for our adventures at Volcano National Park, seeing the lava entry and snorkeling in the tide pools.

Clean, quiet, convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to see volcanic activity, and this house was relatively close to both Volcano National Park and the launching area for the lava boat tour. Good, low-key restaurant options are available nearby, and in the house the full kitchen made food preparation easy. The owner provided bottled water for drinking. The common living area had harsh overhead lighting, which could be improved with the addition of one or two table or floor lamps. Also, I would have liked another place to sit and read, though we were mostly out and about. The two bedrooms and small TV room with futon provided comfortable sleeping for the five of us. It was quiet and private, and clean.

Great out of the way cottage

  • 5 of 5

The location is very out of the way and quiet, except for the coqui frogs, which I like. Good accommodations and amenities. Felt like being in your own home.

If you are looking for a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle and don't mind a bit of a drive, this is a good place. Trish was very informative and helpful!
