I built this home with my own hands with my love of nature and our earth as my guide. It was my first Goddess Castle. I love my paradise and wanted it to be part of my home. It is built of the wood of my jungle and redwood for endurance. The inside is filled with full on logs. This is who I am a full blown ecologist, loving paradise. Wanting to share it with the world

Sheri Joy purchased this cottage in 1991

Once you see my natural jungle all your questions will be answered. There are trails on this acre that make you feel you are in a National Park.

It is a place of healing visual serenity. The fauna and flora is wonderful. The lushness of the jungle renews your faith in the continuation of our world. The way the food just falls off the trees is so nourishing. You know why they call it paradise. It is my own National Park

PERFECT HAWAIIAN EXPREIENCE!!

  • 5 of 5
Sheri, I am sorry it took me so long to write this!
Your "jungle hideaway" is just that! What a experience!

My daughter and I stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. We had such a wonderful time! The outside shower was awesome and we loved when the geckos and frogs came to visit!

Sheri is such a gracious host! The fresh fruit is great and her knowledge of the "not so known" tourist activities is amazing. She knows exactly where to go to get a true Hawaiian experience. Sheri told us about Uncle Roberts. It was one of our favorite parts of the trip. It was wonderful. The only thing that ruined our trip was the government shut-down!

Thanks so much Sheri for everything you did for us. Hopefully we will be back someday to do the things we could not the first time!

Mahalo,
Mandy & Alicia Holmberg

JUNGLE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay here!! It was nestled in the jungle ferns and flowers. The outside shower was spectacular: the open air and intimacy with nature was fabulous! The frogs and geckos were friendly and endearing. I would recommend this cozy wooden getaway to anyone!

A FIRST CLASS TREEHOUSE

  • 4 of 5
Very cosy, romatic and special house in a green jungle plot. Very clean, fully equipped kitchen, two simple toilets, beds upstairs accessable by ladder, additional bed room in groundfloor a little bit musty.
All in all a remarkable stay for us and our two children.... like staying in a first class treehouse. We can recommend it and would come again.

A TRULY HAWAIIAN EXPERIENCE!

  • 4 of 5
My family and I stayed at Sheri's Jungle Hideaway, in June of 2013. It was a delightful experience. The vacation rental is close to the Tide Pools, the Warm Pond, the Black Sand Beach and the Champagne Pond. It was amazing to have each of these delights just a short car ride away. Sheri is a huge help and very hands on, so unlike other vacation rental owners. She provided us with a fresh bowl of fruit upon our arrival and provided us with a ton of useful information.
I was a little nervous about the outside shower, but I have to say I actually liked it. It made coming home from the beach, etc easy, as you could rinse off before going inside. Honestly, the shower just added to the ambiance. The bathroom is a little different, but you get used to it. This is a very eco-friendly house and all that Sheri included in the structure is representative of that.
The house itself, is an adventure. You feel like you are staying in a tree house and the flowers that adorn the exterior are so beautiful. There are some mosquitos, but you are in the jungle, so to speak! My daughter and I were their primary victims and when we go be will just make sure to pack some repellant. Staying in Sheri's house was a lot of fun and a provided us with a unique setting to our adventures in Pahoa...and there were many.
Will we go back? Yes, most certainly. And, when I do, I will stay at Sheri's hideaway again! We love Sheri and the house!

WONDERFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We stay in this lovely cottage for three nights. You will find everything for your wellness (wifi, fresh fruit, full equipped kitchen, hot shower, private parking), the house is immersed in the jungle but other houses are all around. We advised this cottage. The owner is very affable.

I hope they return again. Aloha Sheri Joy
