Are you travelling with friends or family? Would you like to stay in an affordable space that can accommodate 3-8 people? Our yurts fit the bill. What is a yurt, you ask? Each yurt is like a studio apartment in an 18 ft. diameter round, wooden structure with canvas siding. The property has 3 yurts. Each yurt has a bed for 2, table and 2 chairs, lounge chair, locking doors, full bath, internet, ceiling fan and fully furnished kitchenette. A nice full size air mattress and futon can be requested for additional sleeping. Covered decks throughout with a lanai deck attached to one yurt. This property is a great way to be 'together' and have your own independent spaces. Families with teenagers...you know what I'm talking about. There is an above ground pool on site great for families with children equipped with toys and rafts. Bed sizes to choose from are a double, queen or king. Other perks... the neighborhood has a farmer's market on Saturdays at S.P.A.C.E. and a playground. Plan to eat dinner at Kalapana Market on Wed. nights while enjoying live music. The next door Kalani Oceanside Retreat offers meals served buffet-style on an outdoor dining lanai that are vegetarian friendly. Kalani also offers yoga classes, bodywork sessions and community events. Check out their weekly schedule online. Pahoa has several great restaurants, 2 grocery stores and pharmacy. Local tropical sites include Kehena Beach, Ahalanui Warm Pond, Lava State Park, MacKenzie State Park, Steam vents, Kapoho tide pools and Isaac Hale Beach Park. Book your next family & friends’ vacation at the Ohana Yurts!
Mark and Kristine grew up in Illinois. They have lived in Arkansas for the past 12 years. They are raising 2 boys who are teenagers now. Mark and Kristine first visited the Big Island in 2008 as a result of finding Kalani Oceanside Retreat Center. They loved the area so much that they returned each year.
Mark and Kristine Stanley purchased this property in 2011.
In 2011, this property became available and we snatched it up. Our first order of business was to replace all of the decks for our renters comfort and safety. We usually get to visit about 2 times a year. Ohana means family and we chose to name it Ohana Yurts since it is a property that comfortably accommodates our family. So from our family to yours...much Aloha.
