ALoha... Oceanfront Pool. Sleeps 8 plus two futons. Includes 3 bedrm + BONUS ROOM.enclosed lanai has double bed. 2 story house open beam ceilings. Lots of island style furniture. Tile floors. Have coffee on the top floor with oceanviews forever. privacy, next to pool has a perch/sitting point to sit & meditate or do yoga overlooking the ocean, short ocean front trail to Kahakai park. Kapoho Tide Pools full of bright colored fish, float 10 ft above rainbow color coral that look like gigantic flowers in the ocean, or continue down to geothermal Hot Lagoon to swim in the size of a football field area, or drive farther towards Kalapana to Black Sands Beach. A short drive of 10 min to tide pools from house. The residents have a local NIGHT farmers market called Uncle Roberts, International food and Firedancing. Another adventure is to go north of Hilo to the Tropical Botanical Garden with a nice 1 hr walk through the Exotic that comes out at the ocean. Keaau has an open village market for farm papaya/ bananas/ & little mom & pop open restaurant for Thai & Philippine food. Plantain banana. Chicken adobo food great, see a lot of locals eating here & it's more than affordable. It's a one stop shop with the Best Water on the island from 400ft artisan well, not catchment. We have upgraded our bedrooms and will be posting some newer photos. Also the 2nd bedroom now has two twins and have moved the double bed out to the enclosed porch. Take an evening stroll you walk a block inland and you can hear the jungle birds celebrating . Tis a beautiful ambiance. Just heard that if you drive to jagger museum in the volcanic nat'l park. It is active. The locals call it , "lava lake". Like seeing the sun of a solar lights show . Telescope buffs. There is no light pollution here. Enjoy the cosmos. May the dove of peace always be by your side. Mahalo

Hawaii living is very different so we ask that you close your windows when you leave as it can rain for even a few minutes each day. We also have very special Hawaiian windows with crank casings that have a lever to unlock first before opening. Grandpa says please make sure you have teenagers dry off before coming in house as tile can be slippery if wet. We have a flight of stairs that is steep but well lighted and ask that you proceed slowiy. Our pool is 3/4 size about 5 ft deep. We have some float rafts, some snorkels. BRING AQUA SHOES HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for tide pools. There is a Longs in Pahoa. PLEASE NOTE RATES ARE BASED ON 2 GUESTS.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My Uncle bought this in 2002. He is 80 yrs old & is helping his grandson start a sustainable farm in northern California. He is a long time rancher & private pilot. He does live at his Hawaii residence through out the year.

Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
My uncle loves Hawaii. But this way he can live with his daughter while the vacation rental helps keep the maintenance going as he is under going surgery. We can block time as to have Family time in Aloha Land. We plan to come back

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you walk in its breathtaking to see the big blue from the second floor. Wide openbeamed wood ceilings.Windows everywhere. Just sit with your coffee & see the whales frolic. You can sit at the furthest point at the ocean by the pool and watch baby sea turtles frolic in the rollers. You have to drive 10 min south of house and swim your hearts content at the Kapoho tide pools. Global reviews about this place. Its acres of tide pools and safe from the breakers. Float about 10 ft above rainbow coral and plentiful bright colored marine fish. Need a snorkel and reef shoes. Open areas like caves with coral shaped like gigantic flowers in the ocean. The southeast of the island is less rain as well. Black sands beach, Hot geothermal lagoon, Jagger Museum to witness what locals are calling Lava Lake, like a solar sun light show, no light pollution see the stars. Shopping in Hilo also has a great farmers market with international shopping. I find the same products here 1/3 less than the other islands. We have the trade winds so we don't have mosquitos and it keeps the air flow cooler. Listen to the waves put you to sleep all night.
