Tracey Kikals purchased this house in 2008
We chose this beautiful location in Hawaii for it's true authenticity and peaceful lush setting. When you wake up here, you feel that you have been transported to the Hawaii of days gone by. There is a great variety of activities from diving, swimming, snorkeling, sightseeing, and shopping. We are located in the country with the convenience of close shopping.
While staying in Kalapana, the country atmosphere is augmented by the close local cafe, convenience store and Kava bar. We can see the ocean on all sides and the volcano flowing into the ocean from the meditation room. Drive just a little while and you can go to the most beautiful tidal pools and hot ponds. Up the hill to Volcano National Park, or to the other side of the island to more beaches and scenic wonders. Sit on the beach sun tanning while looking at the snow at the Mauna Loa observatory.
We are back in Ohio, but we continue to smile due to our wonderful experiences on the island.
We loved staying at your home in Kalapana. It was a fabulous home away from home. We were particularly impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was. Whatever we were looking for, you had it! We also appreciated your sharing of other items, such as flashlights (and batteries!). The house was extremely relaxing, comfortable and clean. We appreciated the way the cross-ventilation worked so that minutes after entering the house, it was breezy and cool. The meditation room was the perfect place to start the day with some yoga - and of course, a great place to see the glow of the lava flow at night. (By the way, we would have written a note in your guest book, but the book is now filled. We enjoyed reading the suggestions of places to visit both in your owners' book and also in the guest book.
We loved the house and the area. It was so exciting to be in an actual tropical storm(Darby). The accommodation was more than we expected and wished we could have stayed longer. Everything was very clean and comfortable.We saw so many beautiful places while in hawaii and we can't wait to come back! The manager Dennis was great
We were here from 7/29 until 8/12/16. The house is beautiful and it was VERY clean. It's also well equipped and everything worked well. Kitchen appliances were more than adequate however a few more cooking utensils would be nice. There was only a spatula and a large dipper-style spoon. The weather was hot during our stay and the lack of ceiling fans made it very difficult. I bought two small fans so we could sleep more comfortably at night. The owner said she would reimburse me for the fans but I haven't received the money yet. She also said that she would invest in ceiling fans which I think is an excellent idea! The lack of ceiling fans is the only reason I rated our stay 4 stars rather than 5. Would I stay here again? Yes! IF I receive my reimbursement for the fans I purchased and IF ceiling fans are installed.
This is a beautiful house in a quiet residential neighborhood with complete privacy. It has all the amenities and more. It is walking distance (15 min) to Uncle Robert's market and restaurant and to the ocean as well. The owner was very accomodating of my changes in plans as well. The house is very reasonably priced, and I highly recommend it!
Spent one night here and wished my stay was longer. Perfect place for my family.
I would say that this is a great deal for the money if you appreciate a remote location. It is near some very interesting natural sites. It would rate five stars from me if the squeaky doors were oiled. The homeowner provided good directions and a map.
My husband, sister, and I spent five nights in this charming house. The property was well-maintained, secluded, and it was very exciting to see the glow of the volcano from the top of the stairs too! We made fast friends with the geckos and the rooster who patrolled the grounds - a very friendly fellow! The house cooled quickly after opening windows, and we only needed to use the fans one night during our stay. Off-the-beaten-path is just what we needed after spending our days touring the Hilo side of the island. I recommend arriving during daylight the first day of your stay, to ensure you can see the road signs. Everything was well marked, but it's very dark on the island after sundown (not many street lights). It was difficult to leave, but so glad we opted to stay outside the city. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat. Also, if you're in Hilo, check out the Hawaiian Style Cafe - go hungry - portions are as abundant as the hospitality on the island.
We are in close proximity to the Red Road with its stunning coastline views, Kehenna black sand beach where you can swim with a resident pod of dolphins, Kalani Oceanside retreat where you can take yoga classes, book a massage, or for a small fee enjoy the pool, sauna and hot tub. Enjoy a surf at Issac Hale Park the local surf spot and relax in geothermally heated waters at Ahalanui warm ponds. The nearby Kapoho tidal ponds will take your breath away as you snorkel in pristine waters. Visit the Hawaiian Village, just down the road, known as Uncle Roberts where you can walk out over an old lava flow to a newly forming black sand beach and drink the traditional “awa” at the Kava Bar while you chat with friendly locals. On your way out stop at the the Kalapana Cafe for a creamy Haupia (coconut) milkshake, or ono(delicious) fish burger or grab last minute necessities at the Kalapana Convenience store .
