As the sun begins to set over the gorgeous tropical rainforest, a quick flip of a switch lights up the beautiful pool. Relaxing around and in the pool shouldn't have to stop when the sun sets. Positioned for privacy on two lush acres, Jake's Jungle Paradise is a great place for you and the family to relax, unwind and enjoy a vacation away from everything.
Only a few yards from the backdoor, an orchard of tropical fruit is there for the picking with limes, lemons, oranges, tangerines, papaya, lilikoi, pineapple, and more. Even peppercorns and avocados. Good thing the kitchen is just inside the door with the blender at the ready. There's a lot of interesting things to mix up with this array of fruit. Don't forget the banana patch on the other side of the house for even more options.
But the orchard is only a part of the spectacular natural beauty that lives here. Paths throughout the property show off a wide variety of tropical flowers and palms. Just about anywhere you look, there is something beautiful to see. The paths are like a 'walking meditation' that let stop and live in the moment for just a little.
The house itself is spacious and comfortable, with four bedrooms and three and a half baths. The outdoor bathroom is ideal for a quick cleanup after a swim or just a nice place for a comfortable shower outdoors. All of the bedrooms are good sized and do not feel cramped - most of them have their own individual walk-in closet for you to stash away your suitcases and pretend this is your own home. The open design of the main living space is convenient for everyone and large enough that the person cooking doesn't feel like they are going to trip over the people watching a movie. Overstuffed chairs and sofas let you sink in while you enjoy the television or a movie.
While Jake's is a great place to get away, sometimes you have to stay in touch with the rest of world, so WiFi is included. Use it to check the schedule of events at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, the 'Imiloa (a favorite with kids of all ages) or the observatories on Mauna Kea.
Jake's is only 10 minutes away from the tidepools of Kapoho, the surfing at Pohoiki, and the Kehena clothing-optional beach. There is no doubt that beauty in all its tropical forms surrounds Jake's Jungle Paradise.
