About Sheri Joy

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

Why Sheri Joy chose Pahoa

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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

Such an original place!

  • 5 of 5
This place is exactly as described: a jungle hideaway. The outdoor shower, semi-outdoor kitchen, foliage, bird calls during the day and coqui frogs at night were definite highlights. The owner is incredibly friendly and helpful and she goes the extra mile. Heading out to Wednesday evening's Uncle Robert's Market was our favourite. The best food and greatest atmosphere -and a perfect spot to go watch the sunrise the next morning! The wifi signal is weak at best, but we shouldn't be online anyway. Wonderful stay. Thank you so much, Owner-whose-name-I-am-apparently-not-allowed-to-write!

The most beautiful place I've ever stayed

The most beautiful place I've ever stayed
  • 5 of 5
Wow! This rainforest cottage is in the middle of the jungle and beautifully designed and decorated. The owner is very accommodating and sweet and made sure we were safe during the recent hurricane (Mahalo nui loa!). This o'hia log jungle cabin is unique and lovely with its huge windows, outdoor shower, loft bed, and eco-friendly design (partial solar power and compost toilets). There are vibrantly colorful plants everywhere and fruit trees, including gigantic avocado trees with some of the biggest avocados you'll ever see. The cottage is close to beaches, lava fields, Volcano national park, and the towns of Pahoa and Hilo.

All this beauty, and for one of the the lowest rates I found on the island.

Four of us stayed here for four nights and all loved this place tremendously. We were sad to leave. I highly recommend it and plan to stay here on our next visit to the Big Island.

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

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!
