Property description

Situated at the 3,500 foot elevation on the tree-lined eastern slope of Kilauea Volcano, Mohala Na Pua has the unique vantage point of proximity to the Volcano National Park, a view of majestic Mauna Kea Volcano in the distance, and an uncluttered, sunny aerie just a few steps from the dappled shade of native ohi'a trees and giant hapu'u tree ferns. The residence, like a family, "is a place where minds come into contact with one another. If these minds love one another, the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden..." -
It is evident that the significance of family and Buddha's flower garden are woven into the fabric of Mohala Na Pua , which means literally 'the blossoming flowers;" also a reference to a child shinning forth, a thought freely evolving, a heart unfolding. It is meant to be a place of relaxation and simplicity, providing ease from the daily stress in our lives with the powerful energy of active Halema'uma'u Crater nearby, and the expansive desert of lava fields that pay tribute to flows of past years.
The bright and airy upstairs has two sun-filled bedrooms, a bathroom, living room, full kitchen and dining area. Downstairs is an expansive 'ohana (gathering area/famiy room) with a spacious adjoining master bedroom and bath and access to a private patio facing the delightful jungle of a back yard.
This villa has all the modern convenience of a turnkey destination including washer - dryer, all imaginable kitchen appliances, two flat screens with DVD players and full cable, free Wi-Fi, and a bangin', easy to operate, one button fireplace. Also a bathtub for soaking. The sprawling grounds are a botanical garden in progress, the work of the owners to restore the native foliage while integrating the introduced flowers that Hawai'i is noted for.
E komo mai i ko'u mau hale. Come and visit our home in Volcano. Within 5 minutes of the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, we are also just 3 minutes from the relaxed Volcano Village and its restaurants, convenience stores, and the Volcano Art Center. We hope your stay with us provides you with the relaxation and enjoyment of our mountain retreat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Herb and Nona were both born and raised in Hawai'i; Nona from Honolulu and Herb from Moloka'i. Both are part native Hawai'ian and both have family roots on the island of Hawai'i. They live in Volcano Village after moving here from O'ahu 14 years ago. Herb is a counselor at Kamehameha schools and Nona is the assistant administrator/director of nursing at a small rural hospital in Ka'u. Both are steeped in their culture and this land and love to share their knowledge with anyone interested. Neither will come check on you during your stay unless for some reason you specifically request their presence.

Why the Owner Chose Ohia Estates, Volcano, HI, USA:
This property was purchased for their son and his family a few years ago. When things did not work out and their son moved back to O'ahu for work, Nona and Herb started working in the yard and on the house. They intended at the time to offer it for sale. Many friends assisted them in this effort and feelings of aloha grew for the house and the area surrounding it. It has become something very special to us and we want to share it with others. Our hope is that everyone who stays at Mohala shares our feelings for this very special place, our wahi pana.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The villa although large has a cozy feel to it. The views from the upstairs living area into the ohi'a trees and hapu'u with Mauna Kea in the distance are truly amazing. Although close to the highway leading to the park, Volcano Village and points beyond, and located in a residential area, there is a lot of privacy. Sitting on the back patio off the master bedroom, you look out at a broad expanse of tropical rainforest. We love it.
