Our Big Island home, near Pahoa Hawaii, is a unique, custom-built round, house located in a clearing at the top of a long approach hill, on ten acres of completely secluded rain forest. It is completely private and in a very relaxed setting. The house is solar powered and equipped with all modern comforts and appliances. It has a spacious 500 sq ft. bedroom with a queen sized bed and double sleeper upstairs. Upstairs floor features huge kitchen, living room, with 3 sets of french doors that open onto a huge outdoor living room/ lanai/ dining room with extra sleeping space on the deck for visitors and friends. The open-plan design works for a family, or small group, or for just two people. There is lots of art in our home, which is used just for guests, friends or exchangers, and it is beautifully, comfortably and completely furnished for your use during your stay. Cleaning services are available for a reasonable fee from our year-round, nearby caretaker.
The house will be beautifully prepared for you, and all ready for your tropical stay. Cleanliness is a most important part of your guest experience. Our home is equipped with washer and dryer.
The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped for dining and cooking, as we love to cook and when we vacation there ourselves and we always shop and cook locally, with fresh ingredients.
We provide directions to our guests for doing the same locally, including all the special, nearby 'farmers markets,' and also info. on favorite places to dine nearby. Our open-style home has no need for AC, just the beautiful Trade winds and sea breezes that blow up the hill, gently, and throughout the house, though we have tropical ceiling fans. The keynote here is 'comfort first' even though all furnishings are artistic and appealing. Bring a book or two to enjoy in the hammock! This is pure relaxation, which we all need, and love!
I built this custom home over six years, with carefully selected Eco-friendly materials, and methods. It is 'off the grid' and has it's own fresh water supply and the electrical is all solar powered. It is an 'indoor/outdoor' open stye home perfect for the year round mild Hawaiin climate with three sets of french doors that open out from the main great room onto a large 800 squae foot Ipe' deck under an extended roof where you will lounge comfortably barbecue, read in the giant hammock or enjoy our outdoor living room, and outdoor dining table.
The house is luxurious in look and feel, and is at the end of the road at the top of the hill on a gorgeous ten acre parcel and if you want, you will have no visitors. It is perfect seclusion in a setting of great natural beauty , and is all your own, while you are there. You will not be disturbed by anyone. And except for visiting the local sites -warm thermal ponds, Mauna Kea Observatory, ocean swimming, gardens, waterfalls, and volcano, you will not want to leave. This is the relaxed lush side of the Big Island and ours is the perfect place for lovers, friends or even individuals who want to truly get away from it all. A day and a night often feels like three, as time slows down for you there. Perfect counterpoint to the more touristed parts of this or any Hawaiin island stay.
You will awaken to birdsong, a chorus at dawn and go to sleep to gentle sounds of the melodic tree frogs in the forst. The sun rises on one one side of our deck and sets on the other. Restful.
Or.. you can crank up your music on the sound system as loud as you like. There is no one near enough to be bothered! Your private paradise for a relaxing stay. The master bedroom on the lower floor is roomy, over 500 square feet and the queen bed is so comfortable you will wish you could take it home with you. All bedding is luxury quality. A lot of people believe you sleep deeper and dream more, in a round house. We have found it to be true out there in our tropical 'piece o' paradise'.
Ours is a rural location close to major attractions. The town of Pahoa, 2 miles away, is a charming sleepy, historic 'Sugar Cane Railroad Village' that is still most like 'Old Hawaii,' not touristed as many such places are in the Islands. But nonetheless, Pahoa has arguably the greatest concentration of excellent small restaurants on the Big Island.
Our house is only 15 minutes from a large natural rock, warm thermal pool and several other such small pools for delicious swimming, next to the Pacific Ocean. Ocean swimming and surfing is located only 20 minutes away by car. Also, great coral reef snorkeling. Located only one hour from Volcanoes National Park and not far from the mostly continuous active eruption of lava (which can also be viewed by helicopter or boat tour.) Two hours from Mauna Kea (year round snow) and home to many of the world's greatest observatories where you find a Star Gazing Visitors' Center for nocturnal adventures, and for amazing sunsets.
Our home is gated, and is special also for what you will not see. You will probably see no one at all during your stay, unless you want to.
The sun rises on one side of the property and sets on the other, with Hawaiian birdsongs at dawn and dusk. We have beautiful, territorial views and inestimable peace for our visitors. You will need a rental car, but a four wheel drive vehicle is not necessary, and there are no parking problems anywhere here.
