Located in a safe and natural setting, this peaceful retreat offers the sounds and trade winds of the nearby ocean as well as the proximity to the beauty of some of the Big Island's more lovely attractions. Among these, of course, are the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the two volcano mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, all of which offer unique and unforgettable experiences. Adventures in hiking and biking abound. The drive to Volcanoes Nat'l Park is quite lovely with orchid nurseries along the way. The small village of Volcano is also worth exploring for it's art galleries. Closer by, five minutes away, is the rugged volcanic coastline which offers both beautiful seaside walks as well as seasonal whale-watching. Also, the Puna District offers a beautiful and scenic tour of this area's pristine coastline. Among the features of this tour are: the Petrified Forest State Park, the tide pools at Kapoho with it's ideal snorkeling, and the warm pools at Alahanui Park. Further along is the Isaac Hale County Park for surfing, snorkeling and diving. At the end of this drive is Kalapana which displays one of the area's most recent volcano flows. The nearby, charming village of Pahoa offers a quaint glimpse of life into the past. Further north is the town of Hilo with it's own old-world charm, it's bay and it's good variety of dining establishments. Going up the beautiful and scenic Hamakua coast, are the Akaka Falls State Park and the Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Gardens, both of which offer a beautiful and unique experience of the Big Island. PLEASE NOTE: our location is over 10 miles from the lava flow and is safe. We are completely unaffected by the flow.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Originally an L.A. girl, I am now a true local Kamaaina woman. I have enjoyed the island life for 23 years in Oahu and now live in my dream destination in the Big Island. Currently, I share this dream and life with Patrick and Kai, our sweet border collie. We enjoy sharing our hospitality retreat and also love hiking, biking, swimming, whale watching and gardening which are some of our favorite activities. Also for the past 16 years I have worked in the spa industry and now I get to share my dream home and my tranquil spa with you. Regarding my spa, I offer special rates for my guests. Services include:massage, facials and skin care treatments and sessions can be scheduled either prior to, or during your stay.

Why the Owner Chose Keaau, HI, USA:
The view of Mauna Kea, the sunrises & sunsets, sounds of the ocean, quiet, safe and private. The sunniest geographical spot in the area, perfect spot for whale watching, space for an orchard, vegetable garden, and collection of exotic plants and trees that I planted with joy.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Five blocks to the ocean and walks along the lava cliffs. Great location for seeing all the best sites. One level home with wonderful space. Owners on premises for any questions or help. Newly decorated and fresh and clean.
