  • Fantastic lodging in Kalapana

    "We chose this large comfortable home located on the lava fields at the end of the road in Kalapana because of the very close proximity to the lava flow and to experience the serenity of living on the lava. This spacious two story home is very tastefully acquainted with beautiful custom crafted local wood trim. The open floor plan and large kitchen area and expansive living room made this a very comfortable stay for our family of four during our 2 night stay. We could see the glow of the Kilauea crater and the large steam cloud from the very active lava flow currently exploding over the cliffs into the ocean. This home is ideally situated for anyone who wants to be close to the action of Kilauea for taking the 4 mile hike to the viewing area of the current Kilauea flow, driving to the boat launch to take the Lava Ocean tour, or riding a bike to the viewing area. The caretaker of the home Enzo was very kind to us and made us feel at home. We could not have asked for a more memorable and comfortable stay than this beautiful home off the grid in Kalapana on the lava fields."

  • Wonderfully relaxing location!

    "For a month this home was our home-away-from-home...my husband and I, and our two adult daughters overlapped time during the month. And we're all looking forward to returning in the future!! The house is as both advertised and pictured, and both the owner and the rental property manager are wonderfully responsive. The flow of both the interior and exterior spaces met our needs perfectly! We all loved that the house is a one-minute walk to a small park, and in another minute you arrive at the cliffs overlooking spectacular surf. The proximity to the ocean - complete with being able to hear the surf continuously was one of the main draws. Also we LOVED being out of the hustle and bustle of the Kona side of the island, yet able to drive to any area we chose...and we did lots of exploring. In addition to getting over to Kona - and Maui - we also visited Volcanoes National Park, and saw the Crater outside of Jaggar Museum on a crystal clear night...where we felt like we could also reach out and touch the stars! Mona Kea, numerous beaches - including one frequented by a sea turtle who greeted everyone as they descended the short stairs - and the astonishing Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens. And throughout our stay - in assorted locations on both islands we were able to see whales and dolphins...including from the cliffs near the house!! Very reasonably priced and tasty Thai restaurant in Pahoa, and options in Hilo, as well as Kona, etc. But we also enjoyed cooking at the house. If you are seeking a home with new granite, tile, and an HGTV look, this isn't the place for you. But if you can be happy with a comfortable kitchen with new/fairly new appliances, vaulted roof, two porches/decks, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a carport very reasonably priced - especially by Hawaii standards, this home is for you!"

  • Very homey, spacious, well appointed home.

    "Very comfortable spacious home, with all the necessities provided. Tucked into a quiet secluded lot only a block from ocean. Sit on lanai and listen to ocean or fall asleep in one of the two lovely bedrooms to the sound of the waves. Outdoor private shower was a big hit, with indoor shower and claw foot tub as well. Fresh flowers in every room were beautiful and nice high ceilings in main living room. Owners were caring and great. The whole VRBO experience was seamless and easy."

  • Scenic indoor/outdoor living area, centrally located to all the Puna spots.

    "This home is at the end of a short dirt road, off a main road, just east of Pahoa town. The main road connects Pahoa town to the tide pools and warm springs. There are a handful of other homes that share the short dirt road but you can't see them from the house. The house itself has a long driveway and sits in the center of a large clearing. The first floor porch take you to a large bedroom and bathroom. The second floor porch connects to the main living area/bathroom and a separate second bedroom. The porch is spacious, well furnished and the view is simply magnificent. Rain, shine, day or night, the upstairs porch is an enchanting spot. You are surrounded by jungle foilage and the sound of the Hawaiian rain forest, yet the clearing and manicured fruit trees provide a nice boundary and room to see the sky. The host is friendly and conscientious. The house was spotless, well maintained and conveniently located. It's a 5 minute drive to restaurants and groceries in Pahoa and a 10 minute drive to Kapoho Tide Pools, the warm pool at Ahalanui and the Farmer's Market. The best part: There were very few mosquitos. I only saw one or two at dusk outside on the porch. I did not see a single bug inside the house. No roaches, no spiders, no ants...nothing. This is extremely rare for Hawaii and I LOVED it. We're thankful for an amazing stay at the round house. Mahalo nui loa."
