About the Property

Only 10 minutes drive to several beach locations.

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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
