    Enjoy indoor-outdoor living in our bright, open home... Relax on the lanai overlooking lush vegetation and lava outcrops, smell the fragrant Hawaiian air and listen to the waves crash in the distance. Secluded and quiet--a garden oasis far from the maddening crowd. Open windows allow for trade-wind ventilation throughout the home. Rainwater-harvest for showers/sinks (triple filtered), solar-heated warm water (when sunny), spring water for drinking in kitchen.

    Our house is just a ten minute walk to the dramatic Puna cliffs and two miles from the trailhead to the only non-black sand beach in Puna, Ha'ena/Shipman. It is a 10 mile unpaved drive (Gov't Beach Rd) to the old Kapoho area and our newest black-sand beach (created since 2018 eruption).

    The jungalow is located 16 miles from Hilo airport, four miles makai (toward sea) of HWY 130, five miles to nearest mini-market or 8 miles to Pahoa, and 20 to Volcanos National Park . This is a quiet and secluded area., but it is a jungle out there, so be prepared for wild fowl, coqui, gekkos, some insects and rain. Home is wide open for natural ventilation and trade winds (no air conditioner). Quiet hours are from dusk to dawn. Owners and 2 cats live on property in a separate unit at the back of the property. Two cars maximum. Ring security camera facing driveway.. 🤙...

    Loved this place. Property owner was great. House was beautiful. Super close to cliff walks. Absolutely beautiful. Well-priced. We’ll be staying there again!

    We had a lovely time staying here. The screened in porch was perfect for mosquito free mornings listening to the frogs and chickens greet the day. (Well the frogs run 24/7 but our crew loves their sound. Bring earplugs if you need quiet for sleeping). The kitchen had all the tools we needed to prepare meals. The place uses filtered rainwater and solar heat etc so be prepared for longer waits for hot water. The host had two large jugs of spring water for drinking which tasted lovely. All this was disclosed in the welcome binder at the house which had some great recommendations and clear instruction. The host was extremely responsive and helpful, which we appreciated arriving later than expected in the dark and rain. Mahalo!

    Steve’s house is cleaned and looks like the photos. Surrounded by a lovely garden. He responds promptly. We enjoyed our time here. Stayed 4 nights, 4 guests.
