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.

Car: Necessary

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

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is new (2013) 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).
