Hardwoods and bamboo accent the living area. The full bath features a tiled shower, granite counter, and access to a garden lanai.

The units are well soundproofed and have separate entrances and each has full facilities.

There is whole house water filtration offering safe drinking water at all faucets including bathing/showering. Comfortable and airy our new house can easily sleep six, offering an option for larger groups or families, or available as two studios.

We are located on a secluded clothing optional acre in Kehena Beach Estates, on the the Puna coastline, and most easily accessed from Hilo airport. We are only 5 minutes walk from Kehena black sand beach yet surrounded by fruit trees, fragrant flowers, and edible gardens. The song of the frogs and toads have a delightful natural rhythym that puts us to sleep every night. We have house geckoes and sometimes wild pigs visit.
You can walk two blocks down our quiet street to the end and then take a neighborhood trail that comes out on Kalapana Kapoho Road right across from the beach. Or take the road all the way. Hawaiian spinner dolphins often stop in for a visit to our beach. Quiet in the morning, the Kehena faces east. It is sunny in the morning and shady in the afternoon.
Plenty of natural beauty and excitement is currently available. As of December 2016 the lava is again flowing into the ocean a few miles past Kalapana. Anyone who can hike can access the lava right now by car and a walk of several miles along a flat gravel road and a few minutes of walking across fresh but cooled lava flow. Bicycle rentals are also available at the parking area to shorten and quicken the hike. Lava tours by boat are available at Pohoiki 8 miles away. Helicopter and plane tours can be taken from Hilo.
