Aloha and welcome to our beautiful Halé on the Big Island of Hawai’i. We are the owners, Derryn & Angela Ziebol and were married in 2014 on our land in Kalapana. Both of us are professional Sign Language Interpreters, have two children and love sharing the Aloha of the Big Island. Known by our friends as DnA, we met while interpreting on a cruise liner in 2007 and share our love of travel and adventure with everyone we meet. We own a successful travel agency - DnA Travels, LLC and also like to spend summers at our lakeside cabin in Central Minnesota. We are conscientious home owners, always improving and caring for our Hawaiian home. Located so close to the ocean always presents challenges so we have chosen the best house keepers & maintenance workers to keep our home in excellent shape for our guests to enjoy. We also have family members living in Pahoa year-round who are always willing to assist guests and our neighbors are pretty great, too! Your feedback and suggestions are important to us, so please let us know if there is anything we can do to improve your stay at Kalapana Shores. Always with Aloha, DnA
Derryn purchased this House in 2010
Why Derryn chose Kalapana
When we decided to purchase a vacation rental home in Hawai'i, we were all about Puna! There's magic and serenity here. Pahoa, lower Puna, Kalapana & Kaimu hold a completely different vibe than Kona and even Hilo. You can actually feel the Aloha with each breath, taste the scent of natural landscapes and see the ever-changing beauty of the old lava flow just outside the door. On top of this, the hot tub is perfectly located with amazing views. Our neighbors are wonderful, our housecleaners are the best and our maintenance guy keeps the house running smooth! We looked at many places back on 2010, but Kal Shores was the one! Built in 2007, this home was constructed to withstand the elements. It has an open floor plan, wrap-around lanai, awesome hot tub and only four other private homes on our little road. Unlike most other properties north of Kaimu on the Red Road, we are only partly solar powered and enjoy clean, filtered water pumped in from Pahoa. No need for water catchments or loud generators here. You can hear the waves crashing on the shore from the lanai. Another big plus is that we are a 10 minute walk to the ocean and a 10 minute walk to Uncle Robert’s Awa Club - . We can’t say enough about this authentic Hawaiian family-owned business, so you’ll just have to go see for your self but trust us, it’s truly a slice of the Puna lifestyle. Pahoa was just added to the Best Choice Review as on of the 50 Best Small Town Downtowns in America!
What makes this House unique
We absolutely love this home and it shows! When we purchased Kalapana Shores, the interior was painted all one color - pale blue. So the first project was to paint… everything. Angela picked out the colors and we went to work painting the whole interior ourselves. As you can see, the beautiful interior now compliments the whole environment. The town of Kalapana is featured in Hawaii Magazine, March/April 2017 issue. The main focus on Uncle Robert's Awa Club and outdoor market is just a 10 min. walk from our home! The town of Pahoa is just a 10 min drive from home. Pahoa is a fun throwback town from the '60's! The immediate property surrounding the home was all just dirt. Next project: landscaping. We brought in red and black cinder, planted 20 Eureka Palm trees, planted dozens of other plants that were gifted to us from neighbor's yards, created a pineapple ring in the back yard and made many friends in the process. The climate here causes plants to grow extremely fast so the landscape looks beautifully different every time we visit. Even the BBQ gets replaced every year due to the rust factor! The unforgettable ocean views feel as if we’re out far away from civilization, but we also love the feeling of being 10 minutes from Pahoa. Even though we're part of the U.S., we’re still way out there in the middle of the Pacific so we like having great neighbors nearby. The coded, bamboo gate is a perfect security feature and there are so many fun places to explore. If you like to go for a jog, the Red Road is the best!! Sometimes we take our morning coffee out to the lava and watch the sea turtles play in the blue, blue ocean waves. It’s a good idea to keep an eye on the tides; High tide is best for snorkeling at Kapoho Tidepools, swimming at Ahalanui Pool and surfing at Pohoiki! Always with Aloha, enjoy!

Great location, even better house
Fans where on when we got there so House was cool and comfortable from the get go, House was in immaculate condition and made our stay even better. Communication with home owner was easy as they seem like really nice people. We will be staying here on our next trip
Thank you for the lovely review. We are grateful for your business. 'O ko'u hale kou hale.
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Living on "the edge" and loving it!
Warm day's with light showers. Warm nights with glowing lava flows. When that was not enough we had Pahoa, Hilo, the Black sand and Green sand beaches, the Hot pond and the volcano national park to explore as well. Our whole family had a great time and will return to this special place up among the tree's, in the jungle, but right on the coast as well. Mahalo DnA.

Aloha Scott & Kim
Mahalo for your review, we are happy to know you enjoyed the area. 'O ko'u hale kou hale, mahalo Nui Loa.
Great location and spacious accommodations
The house (we stayed in just the upstairs) is very spacious and well set-up. The lava field behind the house offers both a beautiful view, and an interesting place to explore. There is considerable road noise. The tropical fauna in the form of very loud Kokee frogs and many cockroaches and geckos were part of the experience.
Mahalo for your review, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the area. 'O ko'u hale kou hale, mahalo Nui Loa. DnA
Beautiful well cared for property.
Our party of six had a lovely time at this beautiful property. Being able to open all the windows and doors to let the breeze inside and still be secure was great. There is no air conditioning, but it is not needed. The lanai and the jacuzzi were our favorite hang out area. I dont think anyone even turned on a tv as it was more entertaining to watch the birds and geckos.
The house was equipped with everything we needed including nice towels and linens. Even a few food items in the kitchen. Check the cupboards before shopping so as not to buy doubles of items like olive oil.
The property is just a short stroll to Uncle Robert's which is an enjoyable time on Wednesday night's. Be there before 5:00 if you want a table.
Easy access to Pahoa (which is an experience all its own) and a nice little grocery store.
Please drive the Red Road. It is a right turn right out of the driveway. There are breathtaking views along the road. We drove it three different times.
The owners were a joy to work with and so was the caretaker.
Do not be afraid to rent this property; I believe that you will be pleased.
Our many thanks go out to Derryn & Angela
Mahalo for such a lovely review, we are so happy to hear you enjoyed the area. Together with our team of caretakers, we strive to to be sure our guests enjoy our home as much as we do!
'O ko'u hale kou hale, mahalo Nui Loa.
Very nice, spacious house with a large lanai overlooking gardens with ocean in the distance
This place was just right for us. Plenty of room for everyone and a huge lanai to relax and eat dinners together on. Big clean hot tub(that we didn't use much because it was unusually warm and dry). The place was once ocean-front until a lava flow came through about 20 years ago. Now it's a 5-10 minute walk over fascinating black lava to roaring ocean waves. It's also very convenient to go to the lava flows in the evening which we did, about a 5-minute drive to the bike rentals($10 per person). On Wednesdays, it's a 10 minute walk to the Uncle Awa's which is a combination of a Hawaiian concert and market.
The house itself had everything we wanted: clean; full kitchens; washer-dryer; hot tub; and especially the large porch to enjoy the sweet tropical scents, warm air, and ambience that are so special in Hawaii.
Very clean! Loved the nearby lava fields!
We had plenty of space and beautiful views!
