HAWAIIAN JUNGLE HANGOUT

Keaau House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Make this hawaiian ranch style home, bordering serene Makuu Homestead, surrounded by an opulent tropical garden, your special retreat.

Three miles from the ocean, and a mile from the main highway, Hawaiian Jungle Hangout offers easy access to eastside highlights--20 minutes from Ahalanui Beach Park (a naturally warmed 95 degree seawater pond), 35 minutes from Volcano National Park, 20 minutes from Hilo airport, 10 minutes from Keaau town, and 10 minutes from Pahoa Village.

A full kitchen, two bedrooms, plus a den which has a sleeper sofa that opens to a plush round, in a comfortable home on a lush acre of tropical fruits and native plant. Pick fruits and explore the garden and its walkways which include a citrus grove, samoan mango, starfruit, macadamia, lychee, avocado, banana, papaya, noni, and mulberry tree, around lava rock flows.

Also just completed is the asian fused tropical Hawaiian Jungle Hut. Next to the main house with a separate entrance, the hut is perfect for a couple or single guest, having it's own full bathroom, living room, inside washer and dryer, and kitchenette with a tiki bar. The hut is also wireless and cable connected.

A memorable place to make your home during your vacation or business stay.

Since venturing to the Big Island 15 years ago, I've always been drawn to the volcano, warm springs, and rainforest. As a documentary photographer for over two decades, the 15 different microclimates delight in an ever changing offering of surreal landscapes, diversity of character and faces, exotic/colorful fauna, and island politics, gives a profuse array of visual opportunities and is a photographer's paradise. I feel fortunate to have a home located minutes from all my favorite sites and love having the opportunity to share the experience.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

For those that seek the peace and serenity of a rainforest getaway, the Hawaiian Jungle Hangout/Hut offers just that. It is not more than a twenty minute drive to many of the Puna and Hilo highlights and is located between the town centers of Pahoa and Keaau. Being only three miles from a dramatic coastline that attracts whales during the winter, the Puna area attracts hikers, bikers, and those that want to experience Pele's landscape.

My husband & I were very impressed with this property and the owner's helpful emails prior to us arriving on the Island.
The photos depict the property perfectly, it is a piece of heaven!
It is so peaceful; in close proximity to Hilo, all the waterfalls on the East side, some beautiful tide pools (which we snorkeled in :), the Volcano, and the beautiful Red Road on the south east coast.
The house was clean, well maintained & perfect for us.

Hawaiian jungle hangout is a fantastic place to relax in Hawaii. Light and airy, its like being in a
treehouse in the jungle. Well situated, it is convenient to Hilo, yet it is quiet. Liz is a wealth of
knowledge about what to do on the island and is very helpful and accommodating. The den on the ground floor was a little moldy, but wasn't so bad on the upper floor.

Thank you Liz for a wonderful experience. She made sure to always be prompt with correspondence and provided us with very thorough information to help with planning our time on the Big Island. The Hawaiian Jungle Hangout is the perfect home base for a stay in the Hilo area. It's about 15-20 minutes from the airport, easily accessible to necessities in town and surrounding villages. We also loved everything about the house. The only thing you need to be aware of is there being only one bathroom if you are a large group of people staying. Otherwise, it's awesome!

Excellent location to be away from the crowds

We had a wonderful week at the Jungle Hangout. It is a perfect location if you want to stay away from Kona and do activities not in every tourist guide. The proximity to Volcanoes National Park, the tide pools, end of route 130 and 137 to view lava and access to many farmer's markets was a great plus. The house is fully equipped with all the things you need for cooking as well as for snorkeling/ booggie boards etc. Just remember you are viisiting a rain forest and mosquitoes live there all year long! Thanks, Liz for a great stay.

The Hawaiian Jungle Hangout is the ideal place to stay while exploring Hawaii. We recently stayed for a week and found this property's location perfect for our needs. We have young kids so we didn't want to be spending hours in the car trying to get to the different sites. This property is 15 minutes from Hilo, 20 minutes up to the volcano, and 15 minutes down to the Puna coast. It worked out great for us. We live on Oahu, but found the Big Island to have a more laid back, island feel. We didn't have to sit in a single traffic jam and were not shoulder to shoulder with other tourist walking through Hilo. Also the natural sites on the Big Island have a very untouched, pristine beauty that is hard to find at Oahu sites that are visited by thousand each day. The owner of the property goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. She made booking very easy and did not rush me in the process even though I only booked 2 weeks out from our stay. She sent several emails with links to local attractions, recommendations on restaurants in the area, and gave us information on the location of necessities like grocery stores and where to get the cheapest gas. She even called after our check in just to make sure everything was in order, and left us goodies to enjoy! I would highly recommend this property, and can't thank the owner enough for making our vacation so memorable.
