Dedicated to Pele with representations of her throughout the house, Lava House is halfway between Kailua-Kona and the volcano. This home can be a writer's secluded paradise or a spacious family vacation spot. Though on its own unique lava landscape, Ocean View is surrounded by beaches, bays and tropical vegetation.
Huge gourmet kitchen, 2,900 square foot lanai, and nearby farmers' markets ensure dining island style. Nights are cool and comfortable. Coffee comes with morning sun on the lanai, brightening the ocean view.
Guaranteed to be your most diversified tropical vacation ever!
I live in the 2 most beautiful states in the USA. When I am not in Hawaii I live in Salem Oregon.

Lava House has a great ocean view, marvelous dawns and great sunsets. At 3000 feet the temperature is always comfortable. We are centrally located for travelling all over the island.
It was so quiet, the air was so fresh. The house was so clean and spacious. Hope we can stay again. Thank you.
It would have been perfect with availability of 100% kona coffee for brewing upon arrival.
We enjoyed staying at Lava house. Everything was in place for cooking our own food as needed. I would stay again if I visit big island in future.
It was perfect in every way and so convenient to visit our relatives in Oceanview. If you are not visiting relatives in Oceanview like we were, It is definitely a great place to visit so many "Top spots" on the Big Island. We visited South Point, Green Sands, Volcanoes National Park, Black Sands, Whittington Park, little known Kawa Beach, Milolii, Hookena Beach (now open), great eats at Hana Hou and Pulaluu Bakery in Naalehu. So many great sites to see within a short drive and Kau Coffee everywhere. If you really want the city life, there is Kona and Hilo an hour/hour 1/2 away.
The house with three bedrooms and 2 baths was perfect for our group and could really accomodate a larger family with the 3 queen beds and a queen sofa/bed. The kitchen/great room is huge and the wrap-around deck/lanai is amazing.
The owner is fantastic to work with and Linda, the caretaker, was there if you needed something or had any questions. Everything made for a very comfortable vacation and visit to the Big Island.
You have several people, in Oceanview and Illinois that will spread the word about this great rental on the Big Island.
Be prepared for brisk mornings that will quickly warm up as the sun rises. Mornings on the deck outside, with our coffee, were especially nice as the sun always seems to shine in the mornings. The evening sunsets were gorgeous. We enjoyed being half way between the Kona and Hilo sides of the island for exploring, enjoyed meeting the locals in the area, and the colorful little towns that also intrigued Mark Twain. Linda keeps the house well cared for--fabulous big kitchen if you are traveling with friends or family and can you beat that price? It was a different experience and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Mahalo Joanne and Linda! The Lamourias.
Having never visited the island before, the location was intimidating but easy to find with the maps app on my phone. That same remote location makes this house perfect for a relaxed getaway on the Big Island. The house is 3000 feet up Mauna Loa, so the days are warm'ish and nights are perfectly cool, no a/c needed here! Coming from a metropolitan area, the quietness, tranquility, and incredibly dark skies were the best features of this house. Located roughly half way between Kona and Volcanoes National Park, it's the perfect base camp for exciting day trips. Remember, the Big Island is big so you will still drive a good distance to any attractions. The generously stocked kitchen, guide books, and outdoor grill were very nice surprises. The house was spotless, and very well supplied, the owner obviously takes a lot of pride in this property.
Advice for potential renters: don't be afraid of the location, it's completely worth the effort to get here; stock up on food in Kona or Hilo, there is supermarket in Ocean View, but the prices are very high; take time to go for a walk in the neighborhood and enjoy the exotic plant life, lava field, and the peace and quiet.
We really enjoyed the lava house. It is so quite out there, such a nice change of pace from Oahu. The wrap around porch is amazing. Plenty of space for our family of five. Linda was waiting when we arrived. She is so nice and friendly. We would definitely stay here again!
Ocean view is midway between Kona and Hilo and 35 miles from Volcano National Park and 10 miles from the sacred area of Southpoint. The black sand beach and the green sand beach are within 15 miles. There are farmer's markets 12 miles away in the charming town of Naalehu and a buddist temple in enchanting Wood Valley. We are only 2 miles away from Kuhuku Region of Volcano National Park where Saturdays are frequently the time of hikes thru the region. The children especially love the Junior Ranger Hikes. See volcano Nat park website.
