The original Honey House is a finely finished piece of craftsmanship. It is a stand-alone 480 square foot garden bungalow.
Hardwoods and bamboo accent the living area. The full bath features a tiled shower, granite counter, and access to a garden lanai. We feature whole house water filtration so you can drink from any faucet in the house. The kitchen has a gas range and all kinds of cooking equipment. There are usually pantry items such as oil, vinegar, soy sauce, mustard, salt, pepper. There is a king size bed and a big fluffy futin couch that can be turned into a 2nd bed if needed.
Nectar House can be rented as a whole house with giant master suite, living room and smaller second bedroom, two baths. Or Nectar can be rented as two separate studios, Nectar Studio and Nectar Suite. Nectar Suite is brand new. Nectar Studio is completely renovated and refinished. The units are well soundproofed and have separate entrances and each has full facilities. Features include marble tiled bathrooms with tubs, cook’s delight kitchen; beautiful and functional with custom local hardwood counters and shelves, gas stove and plenty of equipment. 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 offer plenty of fresh fruit from our orchards, whatever is in season. In the orchard is a shared outdoor shower, hot & cold.

Regular rates on our studio spaces are $80 per night / $520 wk/$2000 month / $75 cleaning fee/ taxes/ 3 night minimum/ extra charge for more than 2 guests, no charge for kids under 6. One night drop-ins possible if we have an open unit.

Regular rates on Nectar House (two bedroom/two bath/two deck- whole house) are $140 per night / $100 cleaning fee/ taxes/ 3 night minimum/ extra charge for more than 4 guests, no charge for kids under 6.

Contact us for pricing if you are interested in longer term less expensive rental options for the months of May-September.

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.

VRBO's CALENDAR on this website shows whether we have at least one unit available.

Why the Owner Chose Kehena Beach Estates, Pahoa, HI, USA:
We bought this property back in '87 and have loved it ever since. The first vacation rental unit (Honey House) was completed in 2009, we welcome our guests to come and enjoy. We just finished Nectar House next door in December 2016.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While you stay we will share organic seasonal fruits from our orchard. Enjoy a serene setting in a rural coastal tropical paradise.
