Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

'Home of We Three Guys' helps capture the traditions of old Hawaii

Let the soft rhythm of the nearby surf and the aroma of jungle flowers lull you into relaxation

as you enjoy the spacious lanai of this new (2013) open concept home in Seaview Kalapana

Estates. Our home is located on a secluded, dead end street, and is filled with sunshine all day.

Once on the lanai, where you may well spend all

your leisure time, you will look out to jungle and

traditional ohia trees. Meals can be cooked on

the Weber grill and served at the large table,

with seating for six.

Off one side of the lanai, through double french

doors, you enter the great room, with large

windows that offer views out to the jungle. Here

is where you can gather with friends and family

while you relive the day's adventures and cook

up a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen,

with gas range set into the large granite-topped

island, microwave, full fridge, and dishwasher.

When it is time to sleep, there is the colorful

bedroom with queen size bed (and direct access

to the lanai through double french doors), a

Scandinavian sofa that reclines to form a full size

bed, or the queen size murphy bed on the lanai,

should you or family want to sleep outdoors.

The large bathroom, adjacent to the bedroom

and just past the stacked washer/dryer, has a

tiled shower and plenty of counter space. You

may decide to skip the indoor shower and exit

through the bathroom door to the bamboo enclosed outdoor shower! This is the best place

to wash off sand after a visit to the nearby,

family friendly, and clothing optional Kehena

black sand beach.

For evening entertainment, enjoy your favorite

movie on the 32 inch flat screen with DVD

player. If you are here over a Wednesday, a short drive will find you at Uncle Robert's Kava Bar where you can enjoy treats from local chefs, sway to the Hawaiian rythmn of slack key and

ukulele, or just relish the sense of community.

About Dan Coles and Steve Lelievre

We Three Guys, Dan, Steve, and our son Geoffrey, live in Seattle and on Orcas Island. We have enjoyed many trips to the Big Island, and recently completed our new home in Kalapana Seaview Estates. We have travelled extensively and have done home exchanges all over the world. We welcome visitors from all over to our Hawaiian paradise.

Dan Coles and Steve Lelievre purchased this house in 2013

Why Dan Coles and Steve Lelievre chose Pahoa

The Puna Coast district offers the opportunity to unwind in a laid back, friendly, 'off the tourist track' environment. Enjoy the local space market, Kehena black sand beach, Kalani Retreat Center, nearby snorkeling and Volcano National Park. There is also the funky town of Pahoa approximately 15 minutes away by car.

What makes this house unique

The home is new and offers an open concept to living, amidst vivid colors that capture the heart of Hawaii. Unlike other one bedroom homes in the area, 'Home of We Three Guys' is very spacious. The lanai offers a place to grill up your favorite Ahi tuna steak and relax with family and friends. Nearby neighbors are welcoming and friendly and very willing to share their secret local escape (such as Mermaid Pools and Green Lake).

Much more than we expected

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, we were impressed with the property. Spacious open concept with a comfortable master bedroom and a full kitchen..

Ample supplies were left stocked here and everything you would need.( first aid, soaps, etc) they even left mosquito repellent!

It felt like it was our very own home. Dining on the deck was great, the outdoor Murphy bed and shower were cute.

Every morning a neighborhood dog came to visit during morning coffee. The geckos are plentiful and are almost like pets, drop a piece of fruit and watch their cute little tongues lap it up. The clothing optional beach, although full of characters was safe and fun..Perhaps not the most age appropriate place, but our teenage girls did not seem to bothered by it.

All in all, if we have the chance to visit Puna again, we will definitely stay here again.

Ps...if you like it quiet at night, bring earplugs, this is the jungle, and all matter of critter sing deep into the night.

Best Christmas present EVER

  • 5 of 5

Initially we had a little drama trying to find the was dark and raining (FYI, when its dark in Hawaii...its DARK). Leaf, the caretaker, came and rescued us; which was super nice considering it was Christmas. The!!! It was super clean, it's beautifully decorated and anything you would ever need is already there. The kitchen was a total treat to cook in. We spent the majority of our time on the lanai. We grilled on the awesome Weber grill every night and also ate breakfast on the lanai every morning.

The area is so gorgeous and peaceful! Fell asleep every night to the frogs sounded more like chirping to me. We felt like we were staying in the jungle. I cannot even describe to you how beautiful the Kalapana area is. I haven't even been home a week and I already want to go back. Do NOT miss the Wednesday night market at Uncle Roberts KAVA bar! I am now addicted to green papaya salad!

Thanks Dan & Steve for letting us stay in your amazing house! We will be back.

A perfect tropical getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house and location are amazing. The space is unique and open-aired and very well equipped. We spent most of the time on the lanai, including sleeping there each night. Short walks or bike rides to Kahena Beach, spa time at Kalani, barbecuing on the lanai, a drive to Pahoa for breakfast one morning. These were our only outings. Otherwise, this beautiful and private home provided everything we were wanting in a tropical escape. Thanks, Dan & Steve! James & Ryan

Tropical Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Dear Dan and Steve, we can't thank you enough for all you did to make our families first trip to Hawaii so wonderful!! Our family of five absolutely loved staying in your beautiful home. It was complete with everything we needed to feel like we were at our own home in the tropics!! Being able to sleep outside on the lanai in the murphy bed was such a treat for us and our girls. We felt blessed with all the extras that you provide, from sunscreen and snorkel gear to beach towels and laundry facilities. You even provide coolers for trips to the market and lunches for day trips. Your help with places to go and see really made planning our activities so easy. Thank your for your care and kindness in helping our trip be one we'll never forget!!

For some traditional Hawaiian music and to meet the locals, visit Uncle Robert's Kava Bar and Museum, only 6 miles from your holiday home. Wednesday night comes alive at five o'clock with slack guitar and ukulele music accompanying the singers. Enjoy a variety of food from local chefs and art pieces from local artists.

You might choose to cycle the Red Road that parallels the coastline and leads to snorkeling pools (Kapoho) and warm geothermal pools. Or you might hop in your car for a short drive to Volcano National Park to visit Kilauea crater and witness this active volcano. Nearby, including at Uncle Robert's Kava Bar, there are food and artisan street markets. Further afield is the Hilo Market, on Wednesday and Saturday, 6 a.m.-4 p.m. The Maku'u Market, just outside Pahoa (about 20 minutes from the house) happens each Sunday. It offers fabulous eateries for a hearty breakfast or lunch.

The nearby town of Pahoa has several outstanding restaurants, including Ming's (Thai), Kaleo's (fine American seafood and burgers), and Luquins (Mexican, with fabulous margaritas).

Kaleo's is known as 'making a name for itself as the place to go for innovative, Hawaiian-inspired local-style favorites
