Welcome! The Lil' Red Tropical Farmhouse has a clean rustic lodge feel and is easy to settle into. Enjoy the full vintage kitchen and bathhouse. One mile to Kehena Black Sands Beach, 8 miles from the 2018 Leilani lava flow coastal trail head to Po'hoiki Surf Beach and 4 miles Uncle Roborts Wed. night market. The house has plenty of room to sprawl out, enjoy a fire on the lanai, laze about in the hammock and star gaze. It is a relaxing place to rest while exploring the wonders of the Big Island.

About Joe Hoffman
Aloha, I made a lifestyle decision to move to Hawaii in 2005. I fell in love with the Big Island for the first time in 97. Since then I've explored homesteading and a closer connection to our land. I have been building and creating. Now I am ready to share the house with travelers who visit this magical place. I am into a peaceful sustainable existence, that gives rest to a fast moving civilization. Sometimes it is enough to just look at the stars, and here you can see them well, or just return to the original TV, a nice relaxing fire. And I love to cook on the flames, so simple, so good. Sharing food is my favorite form of communion. I love slow cooking, whether it be smoking or stew making. Slower and longer is just better if you ask me. I am a builder, and as a builder the most gratifying thing is to see people enjoying the manifestations that have been created. Sometimes the focus of what it means to construct something for the utilitarian purpose gets lost in the process. But, the magic is always underlying everything, so many times pure serendipity is right there, reminding us. The intention is everything and construed in all the stones carried, wood carved, land sculpted and much, much else. When the energy is pure, then it is easily conveyed or felt. This land is unfolding as the volcano has taught us. All who become part of this history will see how powerful is the asking. My experience here is that there is an instant reflection in the asking. Have fun and come and see...After all this is some of the newest land on this planet.

Quiet, unique, relaxing
We loved staying at the Li'l Red Farmhouse! It was nice to be out of the main cities to stay at this unique house. Love that the house is environmentally concious. Cooking dinner on the outdoor bbq and having a sauna at night was delightful. Fresh eggs and honey and very friendly owner. Joe was happy to point out some beaches and local to-do's. We enjoyed waking up to the sound of the forest right next door. Close to a few great beaches and cute little town of Pahoa. Would definitely stay here again!
Awesome house! Get the real feel of the Puna area!
Joe obviously put a lot of love into the details of this home. The surrounding landscape is lush jungle. I have stayed in many different homes in Hawaii over the years, and this was my favorite by far. You can find a house with fancier amenities, I'm sure. But for pure uniqueness, you won't find another home like this. I stayed with my teenage daughter and she agreed. Joe was a great host, and the house is very close to the warm ponds, Uncle Roberts, Kalani retreat, Kehana beach, and the current lava flow as of 7/31/16. There are plenty of forgettable house on VRBO, but this is one is very memorable. Loved it!
Thank you so much. It was great hosting you guys. A hui hou.
