About the property

Beautiful new home in Vacation Land, at the world famous Wai Opae tide pools.

This home has been totally remodeled and is brand new with a large kitchen and a beautiful Mango breakfast bar, high vaulted ceilings, windows all around, airy and open and spacious. Also has Wi-Fi. One bedroom has a king and 2 bedrooms have a queen and the extra room has a futon for more. Large living room and covered lanai-deck. Wi-Fi. On site washer and dryer upstairs which is coin operated, {only 4 quarter}s. Plenty of room for parking. The home is in a beautiful, safe and quiet neighborhood called Vacation Land and just a 3 minute walk to the world famous Wai Opae tide pools. (best snorkeling in Hawaii) Close to Uncle Roberts, black sand beaches and all that Puna has to offer and everything you need for a fabulous vacation. This area has been ranked #8 in the world for snorkeling and has black sand beaches, hot ponds, Uncle Roberts, and many other attractions close by. There are two floors on this beautiful home and this listing is for the upper floor. If you have more guests, the entire home is available up to 12 guests!

Just some reminders: Please keep fans and lights off in all rooms when not room. Night lights are provided as it does get dark here.

I encourage people to put their compost in the compost containers under the sink and when full, empty in big compost bin under banana trees between the 2 houses.

The 2 large trash cans for garbage (other than cans and bottles that i recycle) plastic, etc. are downstairs next to the lanai. I empty garbage on Tuesdays.

Guests have use of a coin operated washing machine and dryer on 2nd floor lanai so when shopping, remember laundry soap, etc.

For the least expensive food, I recommend shopping in Hilo as it has Safeway, KTA, Sack n Save and Cost u Less (great for bulk.) For health food stores; Abundant Life and Island Naturals. The best deals are at Cost u Less and local farmers markets which are in Pahoa and Makuu Market on Sunday. There are farmers markets in Hilo on Saturday and Wedesday. Keaau also has a health food store and a Food Land. Pahoa has a very expensive health food store, another Island Naturals and Malama Market as well.

Please treat my home very is a very special place that deserves respect and to be kept clean.

Enjoy your stay here in beautiful special Hawaii.

I am next door or a call away and ready to help you in any way I can and to answer any of your questions.

We also have the ability to rent both floors of the duplex upon request.

wifi is dsl broadband and works great!

Thank you and Aloha, Arya

About arya azadi

The owner (Arya Azadi) is an artist who works in India and China and is in Hawaii part of the year. Her work is showcased all over the world including her homes and others on this island. All is for sale. She has renovated this house with her exquisite taste.

arya azadi purchased this house in 2014

Why arya azadi chose Pahoa

Kapoho iss a very quiet and safe neighborhood. One feels quite removed from the world and its chaos. The weather is absolutely lovely and the ocean and tidal pools are right around the corner so when I want to be in the ocean it is a 5 minute walk. Waiopae Conservation is one of the worlds best areas to snorkel and swim as it's clean clear waters are home to some of the most diverse collection of incredibly colorful fish, octopus seals, sea cucumbers, crabs, sea urchins, coral...a wonderful under water world indeed! This home is a brand new renovation and is very spacious, clean, modern, and open. It has all the comforts of home with the amenities one would want to find within your Hawaiian get-away.

You will love this spot in paradise. It is heaven. very quiet, peaceful, safe and one can hear the ocean waves all night.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to the tide pools. Listen to the waves crashing, birds chirping, coquis singing, whales breeching in season while being in a tropical paradise .Beautiful quiet location, on a very quiet street. Enjoy the artwork the owner has put within the units which are for sale!

Tastefully simple oasis in the heart of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Arya's coqui haven was a real treat for me and the family. Our accommodations on the second floor were spacious, light and airy. Sort of like being in a treehouse , surrounded by the sounds, smells and sights of the tropical rainforest. The lush, green neighborhood is peaceful. Coqui frogs sing us to sleep at night, bird songs and the cackles of neighborhood chickens bringing a sparkle to the day. One chicken even layed an egg on the lanai for us every morning. Mongoose scurry across the streets and geckos quietly watching on the walls. The amazing tide pools full of beautiful fish are just a minute walk away. Fresh yummy tropical fruit everywhere you look. Great location for exploring volcanoes, black sand and rocky beaches, and numerous fantastic shoreline hikes. Arya is lovely, the perfect host; cheerful and happy to help if you need anything, and respectful of your space. I really appreciate her sharing this little piece of paradise with us.

Peaceful, stylish retreat

  • 5 of 5

Arya's place was lovely and the sounds of the coqui in the evening and the birds in the morning a welcome bonus. The proximity of the tide pools made morning adventures an easy delight; the chance to swim in a tropical fish store was a short walk away! I highly recommend the location and the home if you are after peace and quiet and the natural beauty Hawaii offers so generously.

alright for the price

  • 3 of 5

Overall we were content with our stay over 4th of July weekend.

Just a few things I wanted to share with upcoming renters:

==Manager lives downstairs of unit. Which for us wasn't a problem at all, but some might not like that (as it is not mentioned in this listing) Dennis is a very nice man. He keeps to himself and we barely even knew he was there. He also let us have friends over and we did get some sort of loud. Popping fireworks on the 4th wasn't a problem either.

==Lighting is very poor in kitchen area. I advise you to cook before the sun goes down!

==Laundry on site is coin operated

==I'm hoping that this problem was fixed, the fridge wasn't working properly so a lot of our food ended up going to waste (BUMMER)

==Floor was very dusty and there wasn't a proper cleaning tool (dust mop) for the type of flooring (hardwood). Dennis did provide us with somewhat of a broom, which did work ok.

==This is a beautiful house. The beds are super comfy, so is the couch. The counter top is a beautiful Mango wood slab.

All in all I would stay here again (granted fridge is working) because for the price all other details were minor. Well maybe some wouldn't think so, (we are local and we could adjust) Some travelers might not fancy the haves and have nots.

I also have some tips for the owner/manager but it will not fit all in one review. I will try to post another.
