  • Your own private jungle with all the comforts of home!

    "First of all, I can't truly express how deeply we loved this property. You do have neighbors but because of the lush plant life on the property, you hardly notice. You are exactly 1 block away from the ocean and can hear it all day and night! There is an outdoor shower that makes you never want to take an indoor shower again. You have all the amenities of home including washer and dryer which means you can pack less. There is cable but shame on you if you watch t.v. while you are on vacation. This place allows you to completely unplug. You are a 5 minute drive from a volcano steam vent warmed ocean cove that is a dream. You are a 20 minute drive from the end of hwy 137 where there is a market and entertainment every Wednesday and Friday night starting at 5pm. The locals here are so welcoming! At the same place is the shortest walk to the lava flow into the ocean, approximately 4 miles one way. You are also within walking distance from the tide pools. Shopping is either in Pahoa, 8 miles, or Hilo, 30-45 minute drive depending on traffic. When we first arrived on the island, we started out on the Kona side and the drive to the house was disappointing and I thought "wow, I could have stayed at home for this." Then we got to the Hilo side and it made up for it immediately. We are talking lush green everywhere! What adds to the beauty is the tree frogs at night with their mating calls at night. It was like music to fall asleep to and when you are out on the porch at night, it makes for a dark wonderful jungle scene. There are also geckos inside and out of the house that leave you alone but add to the wonder of this place. After a humid hot day, your nights are cooled off by the nightly rains. I did have a blonde moment and had to email Gerard but I got a response within an hour which was awesome. Don't forget that if there is ripe fruit on the property you can pick it and the is also a machete available in the laundry room for your use. Lastly the beds are so comfortable especially after a long day hiking and swimming! I really can't recommend this property enough. We will be coming back!"

  • Wonderful host

    "One of our friends auctioned 3 nights stay at this house at Rotary Fundraising over a year ago. Paula was very accommodating and patient with our request and communicating with her. We truly appreciate that. 1. It is easy to find. 2. Nice secluded house with great lanai to sit and enjoy coffee in the morning. 3. Close enough to town of Pahoa and even Hilo. 4. Wi Fi was great to have since we did not have coverage at that area. Just keep in mind: 1. There are stairs from parking area to house so if you have a lot or heavy luggage or bad knees, it may be an issue. And lights were not working so good idea to have flash light. (Or use phone) 2. Screen does not close tight. 3. Both bathrooms have louver door so not completely private. Main bathroom wall is partial so you can hear pretty much everything if you are in kitchen or living room. 4. No AC. Bedrooms has ceiling fan so it helps but only one floor fan in living room area and it can feel bit stuffy if you are used to AC. We walked to Champagne Pond in the morning but did not use it since we were busy going to lava boat, visiting couple of friends near by, driving to Kona and kept busy whole time. We ate at Black Rock Cafe and Kaleo's Grill in Pahoa and they are both recommended by Paula's housekeeper and pretty good. Coffee at Sirus was very good also. She had granola ball and it was really good. We loved Green Papaya salad sold at truck at Pahoa Sunday Farmer;s market. Highly recommended. During the summer, there is Bon Dance (Japanese Summer Festival) on Sat at Pahoa YBA Kaikan. They had some Japanese snack foods for sale. Some wore traditional Japanese summer kimono. It was fun dancing with kids to senior. Something different to try."
