Aloha Family and Welcome to our "Lei-Z Banana"
We love and support our military Veterans. Veterans always stay one night for free beyond the minimum booking requirement of a 3 night stay (the 4th night is free).
Our home is kept at the 'peak of cleanliness' for your safety, comfort and enjoyment. You'll feel right at home and find the simple pleasures of life in our home and on the Big Island. Our accommodation’s and amenities allow you to enjoy island Lei-Ziness at it's best.
The kitchen is well equipped with all the luxuries of home. You can feast on local Hawaiian seafood and produce prepared by the best chef in town- You! The great room (open kitchen and living room plan) allows you to view the ample sized flat screen TV, so you don't miss a thing while you're cooking. There is room for dining inside or on our beautiful and spacious lanai. And if you're visiting in the winter, you just may get chilly enough to snuggle up under one of the plush throw blankets- combine this with coffee, tea, hot chocolate or wine and you’re all set for a Lei-Z morning or evening.
Located on 1 private and lush acre. Minutes from the small town of Pahoa with restaurants, supermarkets and a health food store. Volcano heated swimming (warm ponds) is about a 10 minute drive away (only one on all the Hawaiian Islands). The tropical setting and comfortable design of our property will lure you into remaining on the grounds all day, but please do enjoy the great attractions our island has come to be well known for. Only 10 minutes away you can relax, swim and play in 85 degree warm, crystal clear, ocean blue waters while being surrounded by Hawaiian tropical fish and Honu (sea turtles). Only 2.5 miles from the best restaurants in the entire Hilo area! Only 37 miles from Volcano National Park and only 26 miles from the gorgeous Waterfalls of Hilo! Newly updated, with ceramic tile mostly throughout to keep you cool on those warm Hawaiian days; fragrant cedar; and picturesque windows to allow in plenty of the beautiful Big Island sunlight and refreshing trade winds. More beautiful than photos can show!
Mahalo (Thank You) for choosing our Lei-Z Banana!
We are Texans and are relatively new to the Big Island. We have lived hear since Jan 2014 and are enamored with the island, it's beauty, it's atmosphere and it's people.
I, Esther, am a 20 year retired Army Veteran. I have been stationed at many different duty stations but none as beautiful and full of culture as the Hawaiian islands. I am mostly retired from day-to-day work, but endulge in exciting new employment and business ventures when presented.
We love and support our military Veterans. Veterans always stay one night for free with minimum booking requirements met (must show proof of service- DD form 214 or official Military I.D).
My husband Christopher is an educator and loves developing the young mind. He has been an educator (classroom) for 6 years and has been an administrator for 7 years. We both love to live the life we were blessed with and encourage others to do the same.
We welcome you to the Big Island and our home, and look forward to many years of happiness hear and in service to our Lei-Z Banana guests.
Esther and Christopher purchased this house in 2014
First of all, Hawaii was rated healthiest state in the nation in 2014. Wow! Everyone loves good clean living and a virtually stress-free atmosphere.
Pahoa is a unique little town with interesting sites and people. You'll enjoy the feeling of being transported back in time as you stroll the streets of this eclectic town.
Catch a glimpse of dolphins and turtles and watch for whales during their seasonal migration at nearby beaches. Enjoy nearby Volcano National Park, local shopping, hiking; and dining.
You'll enjoy the peacefulness, seclusion, cleanliness, and organization of our home. We are located in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. Enjoy a peaceful morning and/or evening walk and/or run. The lush surroundings let you know you are truly in a rain forest. We treat you like our valued guests and want you to be fully satisfied each moment of your stay.
We loved it here. Very beautiful here. Got engaged. Couldn’t of asked for a better spot.
It was our first time coming to the Big Island and when we arrived we loved it! The home had everything we needed and more! It was super nice to have a washer & dryer! Esther was very inviting and we overall loved our experience renting the La-Z-Banana.
This house is about a 30 minute drive from Hilo. It's well kept and the owner is very helpful in assuring your stay is one to remember.
We would give this property 6 stars if we could! This house was spotless upon our arrival and the grounds very well maintained. The place had everything we needed for our month long stay. Nicely furnished with tasteful Hawaiian accents. We often enjoyed sitting on the lanai and listening to the sounds of the rainforest. We frequently visited Volcanoes National Park and the beautiful black sand beaches on this side of the island. Lots of good restaurants close by in Pahoa and Hilo. We felt very comfortable staying in this lovely home.
Esther was able to accommodate us on very short notice (like an hour). By the time we got to the house, the caretaker, Kelli, was prepping it for us. It didn't take long, and we've spent 12 nights in an absolutely beautiful home on a beautiful lot, and within an hour drive to everything on the eastern half of the island. Spectacular! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone I know that's coming here...
We very much enjoyed our stay at the very clean Lei Z Banana. The deck has plenty of comfy seating for relaxing after a busy day of sight seeing and errands, with a kitchen that has with the utensils, dishes and appliances you might need if you want to prepare meals. The clean washer and dryer were a much appreciated luxury. The open yard area is large and well kept. The privacy of the landscaping was really nice, it feels like you are safely alone in the jungle. The property is as represented, and if we come back to the southwestern part of the Big Island we would stay here again as well as recommend it to friends and family visiting this area. Hilo is fairly close for finer dining, and the local town is very pleasant with several cafes. A large Longs drugstore and a Malama market (behind the gas station) are just minutes down the road at the roundabout, the Moana Loa nut factory, a lava heated ocean pool and Kalapana beach were all fun destinations on our visit!
Esther and the property manager provide very good customer service, I recommend giving this property a try!
The listing description was very accurate. We wanted to stay near Pahoa town so the location of the Lei-Z Banana was perfect. It was easy to find with the directions provided. The property was very clean, spacious, cozy, and with lots of natural lighting. Everything we needed from the kitchen and bathroom was provided. During the evenings, after a long day of being out and about, we loved spending time out on the deck enjoying the stillness of the night and listening to the sounds of the coqui frogs. The owners and managers were very attentive, friendly and responded quickly. Pahoa town provided great dining options, with Kaleo's being our favorite! I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives!
