About the Property

512 sq' private, quaint jungle screenhouse feels like you're living outdoors

Listen to the ocean, bird songs and breezes from this adorable, custom screen house in Lower Puna. Wood floors adorned with Turkish and Persian rugs and mahogany trim give a rich, vibrant feel to the cabin, which sits alone on a 1/5 acre property bordered by a native ohi'a forest.

Simple, outdoor-living feel, ideal for one or two people. Screened walls, high grade tarp roof, hot outdoor shower, composting toilet, water catchment and DSL internet. At the end of a no-outlet road in the unique Kalapana Seaview Estates community, one mile from Kehena black sand beach and Kalani Honua Resort, 13 miles to Pahoa town, 35 miles to Hilo.

Cottage is 16' x 20' with large loft and two 8' x 10' lanais. Furnished with double mattress in loft and double futon couch below, there is also a single tri-fold futon available for the floor. Comes stocked with dishes, towels, bedding, etc. Includes propane, electricity, phone and DSL internet. Free use of surfboard (you repair any dings) and some snorkeling gear.

1990 Subaru 4-door standard hatchback available for $450/mo, gets 36+ mpg.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Free spirit adventurer who loves to travel and make my one-of-a-kind home available to others!

Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
I bought this property in 2004 and built the cabin in 2007. I love it's location next to the native o'hia state forest in the great community of Seaview.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
People rave about the outdoor shower. I love the outdoor feel of the whole place. Initially the screened walls were meant to be temporary until I decided what kind of walls and windows I wanted. Now I can't image changing it from the way it is!
