My Big Island home, near Kapoho and close to Pahoa, Seaview, Black Sands Beach, tropical thermal pools on the ocean, in Old Hawaii, is a unique, custom-built, round, house located in a clearing at the top of a long approach hill, on ten acres of completely secluded rain forest. Has a view of Mauna Kea and forested hills. It is completely private and in a very relaxed setting. The house is solar powered and equipped with all modern comforts and appliances. It has a spacious 500 sq ft. bedroom with a queen sized bed and a double bed and the second bedroom upstairs has a queen bed. There is also a double futon sleeper upstairs in the great room. Upstairs floor features huge kitchen, living room, with 3 sets of french doors that open onto a huge outdoor living room/ lanai/ dining for visitors and friends. The second private bedroom is upstairs and the huge master suite is downstairs. The open-plan design of the whole of the house works for a family, or small group, or for just two people. There is also a second cottage available for $30 per night if your party is larger. It is located right beside the main house and is comfortable furnished with a queen bed also. There is lots of art in our home, which is used just for guests, friends or exchangers, and it is beautifully, comfortably and completely furnished for your use during your stay. Cleaning services are available for a reasonable fee from our year-round, nearby caretaker. Security damage deposit can be covered at your option by a low cost VRBO or Homeaway policy. Simply ask.
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 full size washer and dryer. Ultra Clean always too, 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!
