There you will find many restaurants of all ethnic varieties, small grocery store, Burger king, Subway, a handful of unique shops, Hawaii Counties nicest community pool (Free with Life Guards on duty), and much more. There is a small convenience store located about 2.5 miles from the home should you not wish to drive into Pahoa.
The property is not ocean front but you can hear the wave’s as they crash against the shoreline when the surf is up.
Nearby are the ocean cliffs (5 minute stroll) where you can enjoy all types of sea life especially during the winter months. You can see humpback whales breaching at the ocean front park located just a short walk way where you can have a nice picnic and enjoy the beauty of this tropical paradise.
Makana-Lani is centrally located between all the sights on the Puna/Hilo side such as:
Geothermal Hot Ponds,
Volcano National Park
Kapaho tide pools (some of the best snorkeling on the island)

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Aloha thank you for visiting out vacation rental listing. My name is Laurie and the love of my life's name is Denny and we have been married for 20 years July 2014 but have been best friends for over 30 years! Denny was born on Oahu (not to give his age) back when it was still the “Territory of Hawaii”. Denny won a trip to the island of Kauai in 1992, which at that time we were only dating and he asked if I would accompany him. It was my first airplane ride all the way from Minnesota direct flight to the islands. Denny had not been back to his birth place since he left when he was very young and I had never been here. Oh my gosh from the moment we landed we both knew in our hearts this is where we wanted to spend our lives as much as we possibly could. We visited many of the islands throughout the years whenever financially we were able to. We loved them all but the island of Hawaii was our only pick of where we wanted to go to as we felt more at home here than anywhere else.
Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
Denny & I purchased this home to be used as a vacation rental to supplement our retirement income. We designed her in the manner of a rental we would have liked whenever we would travel ourselves. We tried to pay as much attention to detail as possible. Linens are of good quality and the dishes Pots/pans are replaced new every 12-18 months. Furniture and beds are comfortable. I think you will find that the home is well stocked, comfortable, organized and clean.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Centrally located within an hour drive to ALL of East Hawaii attractions, a short walk to the ocean, semi-secluded location in an upscale neighborhood and most importantly she was created for our guests and our goal is to spoil our guests and make your vacation a truly memorable one!
