About the Property

Modern and clean 2 bedroom, 2 bath with additional bonus area

An extraordinary tropical experience awaits you on the Big Island! Located on the Eastern side of the Big Island is The Jewel Box, a striking resort-style house newly remodeled with your comfort and luxury in mind. You'll find beautiful hardwood floors, white shaker style cabinets, silestone counters and Dahl tiles throughout. Ceiling fans and tradewinds cool every room, while floor to ceiling windows feature amazing ocean views. Sit back and enjoy the relaxing tranquility on three separate lanais, one on each level. Decorated in vintage Hawaiiana and modern conveniences, The Jewel Box has every comfort you would expect and enjoy.

Main Level:
The main floor features an open concept kitchen, dining area and living room, plus bedroom and adjoining full bath with a large tiled shower. A full covered lanai runs the full length of the house with lounge chairs and dining area. The kitchen is well equipped with full sized refrigerator/freezer, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, as well as complete cookware and dining settings. The living room has a flat screen TV with satellite dish, DVD player and Apple TV. Free WiFi internet access is also provided.

Top Level:
The 3rd level is a master suite and full bathroom with shower and a private deck with lounge chairs and a sweeping view of the ocean.

Lower Level:
Walk outside, down garden path, and you will find a bonus room with its own lanai with lounge chairs and a grill. This room features a futon for additional guests.

Local Attractions:
The Jewel Box is located in the Puna District. This area on the eastern shore stretches from the ocean to the 4,000 foot summit of Kilauea volcano.
A few blocks out the front door is the Red road, one of the most scenic and renowned drives in all of Hawaii, featuring black sand beaches, dense rainforest, and Ahalanui Park (a spring warmed by the volcano's steam). Along this 12 mile drive are a number of beach parks including Waiopae tidepools with some of the most incredible snorkeling on the island.
A short walk from The Jewel Box is Kehena Beach, a secluded (clothing optional) black sand beach hidden from view from the roadway. Enjoy yoga and many other classes offered at nearby Kalani Resort. Two miles away is Uncle Roberts, a night market, which hosts live music, food stalls, handcraft exhibition, and a bazaar-style market every Wednesday night.
Nearby is Pahoa, an old mill town with a row of clapboard shops along a boardwalk, local restaurants and a bakery. During the weekend, the Pahoa Makuu Farmers Market features fresh fruit, roasted macadamia nuts, food stalls and local art.
A short drive is Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Volcano Village, a charming rainforest town known for its glass blowing and art galleries. The surrounding rainforest is in sharp contrast to the steam vents and rugged landscapes of the nearby park.
On Puna's Eastern point is the Cape Kumukahi area with scenic hiking. The air here is measured to be the freshest in the world. From Cape Kumukahi, hike a little over a mile along the 1960's lava flows to Kapoho Bay, a local swimming hole and beach geothermally heated by the Kilauea volcano.

The Jewel Box is about 35 minutes away from the Hilo Airport.

Car: Necessary

Located on the wild and scenic Puna coastline, close to geothermally heated warm ponds, the Waiopae tidepools for fantastic snorkeling, Lava Tree Park, Volcano National Park, lava flow viewing only 5 minutes away (when flowing), Pohoiki Boat launch and surfing/boogieboarding spot, ocean fishing, plus walk to Kehena Black Sand beach for optional nude sun bathing. Yoga and other classes offered at nearby Kalani Resort. Also just a few minutes to Kalapana and Wednesday night Uncle Robert's fun night, Farmer's Markets and a few minutes to the quaint, colorful village of Pahoa for many restaurants, banks, and shopping. About 45 minute drive to the city of Hilo, waterfalls, botanical gardens, ziplines, etc.

Note: As of 10/2014, there is a lava flow slowly advancing towards Pahoa. This could be a once in a lifetime chance to witness a change in the Hawaii landscape, if the lava advances into the town. There is a possibility that the highway 130 could be covered by the lava. The County has already built several alternate contingency routes - good gravel roads for travel to and from the Puna area, if needed. The car rental companies will allow rental cars to use these roads.
