About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

You can save substantially if you do not pay online! Due to a new fee imposed as of Feb 2016, it costs much more book pay online. You can instead arrange to pay directly.

This beautiful one bedroom home lies in the heart of the tropical district of Puna on the Big Island of Hawaii. Situated in Leilani Estates, one of the more upscale communities in the area, this home features an entire acre of land on which to relax, unwind and get away from it all. Smell the plumeria, gaze upon the hundreds of wild orchids surrounding the property, and let the tropical birds welcome you with their song.

Then, when you're good and rested, check out the wonderful nearby places to visit. Start with Old Pahoa Town, with 11 multi-national restaurants to choose from and an extremely well stocked Natural Foods store. Expand to the surrounding Puna district and visit the world famous Kapoho snorkeling ponds, the Red Road to Kalapana and its natural hot ponds (fed by the island's volcanic activity), and Lava Tree State park.

Within an hour or so you could be in lovely Volcano, situated near the rim of the Kilauea Crater and on your way to viewing the ongoing lava activity in Volcano National Park (ongoing for 20 plus years!).

If you ever feel the need to leave the Puna district (why leave paradise?), there's plenty more to see. Waimea town, social center of the famous Parker Ranch, Kailua-Kona and it's shopping meccas, Kawi and gorgeous scenery, arts and crafts that it has to offer. Waterfalls, helicopter rides, para-sailing, hiking, kayaking, Hamakua Coast...

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I am a former New York actor turned computer programmer. Having grown up on Oahu, I have always had emotional ties with the islands. In 2003, I was fortunate to be able to acquire the house and an additional 15 acres in nearby Pahoa. I am very interested in sustainable living. The house already uses rainwater and it is heated by the sun. The next step will be PV solar panels and an organic garden.

Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
Pahoa is the last affordable place in the Hawaiian islands. It is also very quiet, rural and far from the maddening crowd. If you're a tourist that likes to get away from all the tourists, the is the place to be.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is in a very quiet neighborhood and it is set back from the road 2/3 of the length of the lot. As such, you have a nice feeling of being away from it all. The house is also situation in a section of Leilani Estates that had a big fire several years ago. As such, it is not as lush and other parts of Leilani and therefore has fewer mosquitos and more sunshine.
