Property description

A genuine island on an island. Our beautiful spacious plantation style home sits on a Hawaiian Kipuka, an untouched oasis amid ancient lava flows.

The location is exceptionally private, yet a 5 minute drive to quaint Pahoa town, close to Kahena black sand beach, a popular snorkeling spot the Kopoho tide pools, the natural warm springs, Kalapana and Uncle Roberts, Lava Tree State Park, and of course, Volcanos National Park.

The home is 3000 square feet of indoor living space and an additional 1500 square feet of outdoor living space. It has four bedrooms and three baths. Two of which are master bedrooms with private baths and two other bedrooms with a shared bath.

Large lanais wrap around the entire home and provide for spacious casual indoor/outdoor Hawaiian style living. In addition, each master bedroom as its own private lanai.

The property has a Main House and an Ohana House connected by a covered breezeway and a wrap around lanai. The main house has an open concept kitchen and dinning/living area. The Ohana House has its own kitchenette.

The main house is 3 bedrooms; one large upstairs master bedroom with a private bathroom and two downstairs bedrooms with a shared bathroom. The main house can be rented separately on its own for $100/nt. To rent just the Main House please submit your reservation request through the property listing, "Kipuka House Main House".

The Ohana House has a very large upstairs master bedroom studio with its own kitchenette and can also be rented separately from the main house on its own for $75/nt. To rent just the Ohana House, please submit your reservation request through the property listing, "Kipuka House Ohana".

The Ohana House also has a very large ground floor bedroom and living area that can be added as an additional bedroom to either the main house or the Ohana House upstairs studio for an additional $20 - 25/nt. However, the Ohana House ground floor bedroom cannot be rented on its own.

Rental of both connected spaces constitutes rental of the entire property and would be the entire 4 bedrooms, three baths of the property. The rate for the entire property is $125/nt.

Special Single Day Rental Rate
While we are happy to accommodate reservations of only one day, the cost of accommodation requires that we charge more for the single day rental. The rental rate for a single day rental is $225 for one night only.

The cleaning fee is required. However, if your rental period is less than three days, the cleaning fee will be reduced accordingly. The cleaning fee for a two day rental is $50 and the cleaning fee for a one day rental is $25.

Any adjustments to price or fees will be made manually upon submission of your rental request. If your reservation requires a price modification, please do not use the instant booking option. Please submit a reservation request and we will make the necessary change and send it back to you for approval and confirmation.

If you have any questions not answered here or would like to inquire about additional optional services, please ask, we are more than happy to help!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: My partner and I, Jesus, moved from San Francisco to buy this home brand new in 2014. We are so grateful to have this home and proud to use it to host guests from around the world. After visiting the big island in 2012 we decided to make the move from San Francisco to Hawaii Island (The Big Island). Although we had been to Hawaii many times previously, it was during that trip in 2012 we discovered that this little piece of paradise could be our home. No, we aren't retired, and we still work a full week running our business on the mainland. However, since moving here, the days don't seem as long and breathing seems so much easier.
