Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 8 Sleeps

Lava update 8/3/18: vacation rentals in our neighborhood resumed July 5th. While there is still volcanic activity in certain areas of Puna, here in Kalapana its been calm. The volcano has been continuously erupting along this zone since 1985, and changes everyday so we never can predict what will happen. The main eruptions were in Leilani neighborhood about 11 miles away, have subdued for now & were very localized threatening our area of Kalapana where our Blue Lava Oasis is. Also it cannot go uphill, if it were to continue, it would flow further northeast towards the ocean not southwest to us. So we are in the safe zone! The County is currently setting up "public lava viewing plans" & if you search that phrase online you can find updates. You can see the lava glow from our home- which is something else! Here is a recent review from AirBnB from July 20th guests.

"Such an extraordinary experience! The drive to the house alone was so neat, there was steam coming up on the side of the road from the current lava flow (everything was super safe), the old lava flow signs, and of course once you get close to the house and start driving on the old lava fields that the house is on is just out of this world. The house is one of the nicest in the neighborhood and super adorable. It was clean, had wide open spaces, and just perfect for my husband and myself and our toddler. We had a good time with some of the nearby attractions but loved that it was pretty close to the main roads that will take you to either side of the island. We love to drive around and explore so that was perfect. We also could not believe how neat it was to see the lava glow at night and stars were great!! All in all we had a really great and adventurous trip and we are already planning on coming back real soon! "

If you are looking for a 'one of a kind' BnB, this it! This home was crafted with LOVE & truly a GEM! One of the biggest & nicest houses in this unique neighborhood. Has been a very successful B&B for 2 years.

You and your family can get the entire house to enjoy!!!!!

Raw elemental experience of Fire & Water. This home sits within a unique and powerful environment. Nature invites you to connect in a profound way. The Spirit of Aloha is definitely here! Swaying palm trees, views of lava flow fields, rainbows, moonbows and expansive starlit nights are a continual part of the living experience. When the lava flows, it sometimes is within walking distance of our home, but otherwise a drive up the mountain. Ocean is a 10 minute walk with view from top lanai.

If you can, make sure to come on Wednesday so as not to miss the weekly Uncle Robert's market party. If you wish to experience the authentic side of the Island, this is were you need to go. Have a mai tai, dance to an ukulele band, check out the 40+ vendors, and savor a few local dishes. Don't miss a visit to the black sand beach behind the market! This market is just 1.5 miles from the house, around the corner!

*High speed Wi-Fi internet in entire house

*Spacious Master Suite on 2nd floor – Huge bathtub for two with lots of windows for stunning views!

*2 BRs downstairs suitable for 2 couples or kids.

*Nice modern kitchen with native wood & stone lava countertops.

*Cathedral ceilings

*Front lanai with sunrise/sunset views as well as few other patios.

100% OFF-THE-GRID LIVING :: Want to experience GREEN LIVING in HAWAII in a UNIQUE OASIS? You've found the place!

*Solar Power

*Propane stove

*UV filtered water

Kalapana has some of the best weather on the island. The wind here means almost no mosquitoes, also no loud coqui frogs (a nuisance at many places keeping you awake all night), next to no Vog (volcanic fog), & not too much rain.

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS :: very conveniently located for those in search of Nature spots & some local happenings all 10-15min drive away! Such as:

*Historic Painted Church

*Kalapana Café & Kaimu General Store

*Uncle Robert's Grocery/Liquor Store & Kava Bar featuring the HUGE Wednesday Farmer’s Market (live music, over 50+ vendors with crafts, food, etc) & Saturday market

*Kehena Black Sand Beach

*Pohoiki / Isaac Hale Beach Park (local surf spot)

*Pahao 15min drive north with all your restaurants (Thai, Mexican, Italian), health food store "Island Naturals", ATMs & shops.

*Kalani Retreat Center is 10min drive with pool, hot tubs, saunas, yoga/dance events, organic gourmet restaurant buffet & soon a health food store!

- Currently Kalani Is Closed as of 8/15/18

Please Note:

*For same day bookings, check-in is only available at 6 pm.

*This is a sacred place & we are seeking to attract respectful people who really appreciate what this place offers. A comfortable healing sanctuary after the days sightseeing. We ask for quiet hours as much as possible 10pm-8am to be considerate of our neighbors. Of course if you want to drink & socialize & enjoy your vacation thats your choice, just be respectful to the quiet neighborhood please.

*Also note: the master bedroom is located upstairs & has open hallway top of stairs with no bedroom door, in other words, not the most private. Considering the below rooms with locking doors will be where your friends/family are in their rooms, then it becomes private. Just wanting to make that clear so as not to get any critical reviews about those things later. We aim to build an enclosed wall & add nice Bali temple door there in the near future to create even more privacy upstairs. Also, the Jacuzzi Tub up there CANNOT have jets running as we are having extreme power usage with those & definitely cannot use at this time with 100% Solar. Very lovely room in a very lovely house though I must say!

Since we are new owners that recently listed this, we have cut & pasted reviews from previous guests from last owners:

"This place was incredible! It provided exactly the kind of 'off-the-grid' physical and mental escape we were looking for when booking. If you're looking for space to escape the 'default world' and connect with the natural beauty of the Big Island, look no further!" (Joe)

"Beautiful, tranquil remote. We loved being off the grid. everything we needed and was very lovely! We would stay there again!:) " (Anna)

Unique location, incredible house

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after it was already dark so the house was a little bit harder to find but we woke up to an incredible view of the lava and the ocean. The house itself is clearly owned by somebody who pays a lot of attention to all the little details making it an unforgettable stay.

Luxury off the grid.

  • 5 of 5

This house is not only beautiful, but it is truly luxurious. We enjoyed every moment we spent in it. It is large, has everything you need, and it is very nicely decorated. The wood-workmanship inside is remarkable. The proximity to the bike rental places, the black-sand beaches, tide-pools makes it even more convenient. We watched the Sun rising every morning, and the lava steam plum all day from the kitchen while having breakfast or doing the dishes. How cool is that?! It is not resort atmosphere, but you have luxury off the grid! Strongly recommend it to anyone.

Black Sand Secret Beach in our neighborhood!

Although our lovely home is located off the beaten path for those that like being out where the Stars Shine Bright, away from Cities, near the Ocean & literally in the middle of an old dried up black lava field....it is very nearby to some happening cultural spots with Food, Live Music, & a Farmers Market. Its called Uncle Roberts, & more info here:

Another hot spot is Kalani Resort located about 10min drive up the road.

They have Yoga, Ecstatic Dance, Hot Tub/Pool/Sauna & amazing Food & more!

Black Sand Beach, aka Kahena, is up the road near Kalani as well & very popular beach near our home. Especially on Sunday Funday, but warning, its very hippy place, and clothing optional.

And....last but not least, the few "Warm Ponds" in Puna are just 10-15min drive up the road!
