  • A lush slice of paradise!

    The home is on one acre of lush lawn with well-manicured gardens, surrounded by ohia forest. Our home and furnishings are new and extremely clean with an open floor-plan and a lovely lanai. Situated on a grassy acre in the ohia forest, the lot is open and airy, yet private and secluded. Although close to Pahoa town, Leilani Estates is a quiet neighborhood with large lots, giving it a remote and pastoral feeling. We are usually on the mainland when we our guests visit. However, our property manager and close friend Mathew lives less than a mile away and is always willing to answer questions. Hawaii Tax ID: W27489399-01

  • Oceanfront Cottage in Scenic 'Old Hawaii' , the Original Rainbow Dreams Cottage

    The Original Rainbow Dreams Cottage - with a spectacular oceanfront view, the only vacation rental so close to the ocean on the scenic Old Red Road (Rural Route 137). Our Cottage is situated on the beautiful Puna Coast of the Big Island. Set amidst a 150-year old 'kings' grove of coconut palms, the cottage directly faces the Pacific Ocean with stunning, 180 degree views framed thru palms and rare ocean mahogany trees. Situated amid a tropical garden planted with over 125 Palm Trees, exotic fruits and redolent with the fragrance of tropical flowers, this cottage is simply the best rental in the area. Inside the private and well-appointed cottage, you will find vintage Koa, mahogany and bamboo furnishings. The cottage is set up with everything you need - a well-stocked kitchen, one full bath, an extra outside shower for washing off after the beach, and two bedrooms with closets. All rooms have windows to let the natural trade-winds in, and there is a small porch in front with a small screened lanai on the side to enjoy the balmy air. Rainbow Dreams Cottage is the perfect eco-retreat, where you can really get away from it all. We are solar powered, so therefore there are limitations to this rental. Please read our reviews, since there is NO cell service, NO wi-fi, NO T.V. or even radio - just the beauty and the power of nature, the sound of the ocean and the ocean breezes. However, ALL of those services are just minutes away, up the road or in the nearby town of Pahoa. With a direct view of the ocean, you may spend your whole vacation simply gazing at the waves, birds and sky, yet the cottage is the perfect base for exploring the unique natural and cultural heritage of the Big Island. All along the coast in the rural Puna District, you will discover special places to explore, from scenic parks to sheltered coves. Three miles from the cottage is exotic Kehena Beach, where palms and ironwood trees surround a lovely crescent of black sand. Two miles in the other direction is MacKenzie State Park, where steep lava cliffs form a rugged, rocky shore with dramatic crashing waves. Ahalanui State Park with a naturally-heated fresh/salt-water swimming pond is about five miles drive. This is a truly unique spot in one of the most beautiful areas of the Big Island in which to explore, enjoy and restore.
