About the Property
Private, 2 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4+) 3rd bedroom cottage available.
The house will be beautifully prepared for you, and all ready for your tropical stay. Cleanliness is a most important part of your guest experience. Our home is equipped with washer and dryer. Ultra Clean always, unlike lots of others.
The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped for dining and cooking, as I love to cook and when I vacation there myself I always shop and cook locally, with fresh ingredients.
We provide directions to our guests for doing the same locally, including all the special, nearby 'farmers markets,' and also info. on favorite places to dine nearby. Our open-style home has no need for AC, just the beautiful Trade winds and sea breezes that blow up the hill, gently, and throughout the house, though we also have tropical ceiling fans. The keynote here is 'comfort first' even though all furnishings are artistic and appealing. Bring a book or two to enjoy in the hammock! This is pure relaxation, which we all need, and love!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

Ours is a remote rural location close to many major attractions. We have easy access to local farmers markets where you can purchase island grown fruits and vegetables as well as many deliciously prepared foods, with island tastes and familiar favorites also. Close the charming village of Pahoa for Banks, Post office, Gas, Drug store, health food stores Farmer's Market, bookstore DVD Rentals and a couple good bars and great dining spots, store and large Grocery store, and Hardware store
Our house is only 15 minutes from a large natural rock, warm thermal pool and several other such small pools for delicious swimming, next to the Pacific Ocean. Ocean swimming and surfing is located only 20 minutes away by car. Also, great coral reef snorkeling. Located only one hour from Volcanoes National Park and not far from the mostly continuous active eruption of lava (which can also be viewed by helicopter or boat tour.) Two hours from Mauna Kea one of the largest mountains in the world and the largest measured from it's underwater base (year round snow) and home to many of the world's greatest observatories where you find a Star Gazing Visitors' Center for nocturnal adventures, and for amazing sunsets.
Our home is gated, and is special also for what you will not see. You will probably see no one at all during your stay, unless you want to.
The sun rises on one side of the property and sets on the other, with views often of Mauna Kea, with Hawaiian birdsongs at dawn and dusk. We have beautiful, territorial views as well in every direction and inestimable peace for our visitors. You will need a rental car, but a four wheel drive vehicle is not necessary, and there are no parking problems anywhere here.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: I built this custom home over six years, with carefully selected Eco-friendly materials, and methods. It is 'off the grid' and has it's own fresh water supply and the electrical is all solar powered. It is an 'indoor/outdoor' open stye home perfect for the year round mild Hawaain climate with three sets of french doors that open out from the main great room onto a large 800 square foot Ipe'wooden deck under an extended roof where you will lounge comfortably, barbecue, read in the giant hammock or enjoy our outdoor living room, and outdoor dining table. There is an extra rental bedroom cottage on the property available for an additional small fee, which allows us to comfortably sleep 8-10. Ask about it.
Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
The house is luxurious in look and feel, and is at the end of the road at the top of the hill on a gorgeous ten acre parcel and if you want, you will have no visitors( though our caretaker lives nearby if you need her.). It is clear and planted with fruits, spice nut and coffee trees and shrubs as well as flowers and is perfect seclusion in a setting of great natural beauty , with lots of room and is all your own, while you are there. You will not be disturbed by anyone. And except for visiting the local sites -warm thermal ponds, Mauna Kea Observatory, ocean swimming, gardens, waterfalls, and the volcano, you will not want to leave. This is the relaxed lush side of the Big Island and ours is the perfect place for lovers, friends or even individuals who want to truly get away from it all. A day and a night often feels like three, as time slows down for you there. Perfect counterpoint to the more touristed parts of this or any Hawaiin island stay. The house is wonderfully comfortable even luxurious in feel and the extra guest cottage will make it comfortable for one or two, or as many as 10.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
You will awaken to birdsong, a chorus at dawn and go to sleep to gentle sounds of the melodic tree frogs in the forst. The sun rises on one one side of our deck and sets on the other. Restful. Yet it is also a great starting point to explore nearby Kilauea and it's near continuous Lava flow since 1989. ( But do not worry, you are far from it's lava flow.) Or.. you can crank up your music on the" plug in your device to our sound system" as loud as you like. There is no one near enough to be bothered! Your private paradise for a relaxing stay. The master bedroom on the lower floor is roomy, over 500 square feet and the queen bed is so comfortable you will wish you could take it home with you. All bedding is luxury quality. A lot of people believe you sleep deeper and dream more, in a round house. We have found it to be true out there in our tropical 'piece o' paradise'.
