Puna Paradise is a 2+ bedroom, 2 bathroom, private vacation rental home in the residential community of Hawaiian Beaches. Located just a few blocks from the ocean and minutes from Pahoa Village, Puna Paradise is a great base for exploring the East side of the Big Island.
The home is surrounded by a lush tropical yard, full of lovely flowers and tall privacy plantings. There's a garage for your rental car, and the convenient entrance just off the garage makes it a breeze to transfer your belongings.
You'll enter into the dining area, with a wooden table and seating for 4, which is right next to the full kitchen. The kitchen features tile counters, a flat top electric range, microwave, and a full size fridge and freezer with plenty of ice trays. You'll also find a toaster, coffee maker, rice cooker and blender. The cookware hangs from a ceiling rack and the cabinets are stocked with equipment to prepare and serve your home cooked meals.
Beyond the dining area, the living room is furnished with a comfy sectional sofa. There's high speed internet and a TV with cable reception. Tile floors and ceiling fans in every room keep things nice and cool. The Hawaiian themed art adorns the walls. A sliding glass door leads out to the fully screened lanai where you can enjoy the garden views and tropical breeze.
The hall leads from the living room to the bed and bathrooms. There's a full guest bathroom with tile and river rock shower. The guest bedroom has a queen bed, closet and nightstands with reading lamps. Across the hall, the master bedroom also has a queen bed, a large closet, chest of drawers and wall mounted reading sconces. Both bedrooms are decorated in soothing color schemes, and provide ceiling fans and garden views. There's also a den with a full size futon that can provide an additional bed, if needed.
Laundry facilities are located in a locked closet off the garage. Also off the garage, in an alcove surrounded with bamboo privacy screens, a DIY extra-large bathtub provides an excellent opportunity for even the tallest traveler to take a deep, relaxing soak after a long day of sight-seeing.
Puna Paradise is centrally located in the Puna district, less than 10 minutes from Pahoa Village where you'll find great restaurants, boutiques, groceries, etc. Walk just a few blocks to the Kahakai cliff side park where you can enjoy a picnic on the lawn or sit along the cliff to watch the waves crash against the shore. Head south of Pahoa out to the coast and follow the Red Road, and you'll find some of the state's best snorkeling at the Wai Opae tidepools, the boat launch and surfing hot spot at Pohoiki Bay, Kehena Black Sand Beach, and the current lava viewing area at Kalapana. Head north from Pahoa to visit historic Hilo and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, each about 45 minutes from the house.
