We can refer you for lava boat tours/hikes at THE BEST PRICE!
Coconut Palms has been the home to visitors around the world for about 7 years now and many return to this wonderful and well kept home.
It's a wonderful place to stay if you want to be centered in the Puna District of Hawaii (Kalapana), which is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
This is a sunny spot of the island where there is less rain! Although it rains much less down here, Kalapana remains green and beautiful.
Many people come to Kalapana to visit Volcano National Park - home of Kilauea and the periodic lava flows just a short distance from us.
There are also Hawaiian jungles, tropical rain forests, beautiful coastal views, geothermically heated ponds, snorkeling, whale watching w/ dolphins that migrate to the warm Hawaiian waters from Alaska.
You can often see them from land swimming off our beautiful coastal park and in the Kehena Beach area.
Many of my tenants tell me that they were able to swim w/ the dolphins and you can too.
This is the place for water lovers - we have what you need at no extra charge: snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, noodles for your swimming pleasure. Did you know that the best and safest snorkeling area is just down the road in the Kapoho Tide pools?
You can easily navigate all of these places from Coconut Palms, it has come to be a very popular spot 'right in the center of all of these attractions'.
For those of you who are seeking night time entertainment, check out 'Uncles Outdoor Hawaii Bar' if you want to sip a beer, listen to live Hawaiian music, eat great food and enjoy a farmers market at the same time.

About Andre and Susan
Aloha, we fell in love with Hawaii while on vacation and decided that we wanted to live here. Can't think of a better place on earth to live that 'right here' in the Puna District. Come see it, you may never want to leave.
Andre and Susan purchased this House in 2009
Why Andre and Susan chose Kehena
We love Kalapana-Seaview Estates which is a very nice, safe, family oriented community situated next to Kehena Beach in a very beautiful, remote coastal area in the Puna District of Hawaii - The Big Island. Kalapana is 'the Hawaii' that everyone dreams of and quite different than the city of Kona. We live in the Kalapana area ourselves and absolutely feel that it is the nicest part of the entire island... you will too. You may not want to didn't.
What makes this House unique
The property is within walking distance to the coast and has an ocean view. If you are looking for a great place to relax, hike around, and enjoy a remote, quiet, tranquil and peaceful part of Hawaii - this is it. If you enjoy farmers mkts, we have one just 1/2 block away. We also are connected w/ a lava tour guide who provides Lava Boat Tours, hiking tours to the lava flow, sport fishing trips and more at the best price.. Just ask us for more information.

Loved Puna & Coconut Palms
We really enjoyed our stay at Coconut Palms! It is on a rural side of the island and did not disappoint being in a neat location. We loved going to the local farmer's market only 1/2 block away on Saturday and the sheer beauty of the area was lovely. The home had two rented studios as well and we had fun meeting the others that stayed there. We even had friends rent a studio and join us for a few days which was very convenient! The 3 bedroom home allowed plenty of space for our family of 5. Only two small critiques - I could not find the cheese grater for the life of me (it may have been there but I could not locate it) and it would be appreciated to have mattress pads on the beds for hygiene-sake and comfort. These two small things do not diminish or take away from the fact that we were very satisfied with our stay and hope to return in 2015! We felt the home provided excellent value. The photos and description were very accurate and the property was clean and comfortable. Miguel even paid my son $5 to catch a local chicken - which he proceeded to do (only for entertainment purposes, mind you). It was quite memorable to say the least! We highly recommend Kopoho Tide Pools for snorkeling (some of the best we've EVER experienced), The warm water pool, The Sunday drum circle at Kehena Beach, The lava flows visible only 10 minutes away in Kalapana. Tasty ice cream and grub at the Kalapana Cafe about 10 minutes away. There is plenty to do in the area but be aware this is not on the main drag - it's a bit off the beaten path which we sincerely appreciated and loved. Thanks for having us! See you in a couple of years!
Great place to stay!
Andre and Susan’s home was very nice! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
I wanted to stay on this side of the Big Island this time (last time we stayed in Kona area) so we could see lava flow. It was very convenient to the lava flow area, Volcano National Park (~45 min away), the Kehena black sand beach (5 min drive, and just beautiful!) and Kapoho tidal pools (~25 min drive, also really cool!). We really liked the location, and that it felt “remote” but was still very convenient to where we wanted to go. We didn’t actually get to see the lava flow (the last car allowed in is at 8:30 pm) but the man at the gate said it wasn’t really flowing anyway, and it would have still been an 8-10 (?) mile hike from the parking area—so when I heard that, I was okay with that! :) I think Andre mentioned you could walk/bike from the lava fields down the “main road”, but we didn’t get to do that. The house was clean and well-stocked (we made breakfast every morning of our stay). Andre came and personally gave us the key and quick tour of the place, and outlined the nearby sites. There was no A/C, but the cross breezes and ceiling fans did keep the main floor and upper loft cool overall. For the warmer downstairs rooms, there were fans in each room, so that helped. I must have mis-read the number of bathrooms (I thought there were 2, but there are 1.5 which is what the property details showed when I looked again), but that being said, there were 7 of us, and there was plenty of hot water with good water pressure. :) This was our first time using VRBO, and thanks to Andre, it was a great experience! Mahalo!
Wonderfully Comfortable and Clean
We wanted to be close to the Lava Boat Tour departure and could not have found a better place! Very comfortable home, clean, and the kitchen had everything we needed for making all our meals. Very relaxing setting in a quiet neighborhood. We loved it!
The house was very comfortable, and the neighborhood nice and quiet, just what we were looking for. We were surprised to find out that there was a studio and an apartment attached to the house but it wasn't to intrusive. We enjoyed our stay.
Lot of space, well equipped and close to many tourist sites
Half house located in a residential area close to many touristic sites of the south of the island.
Wa have been warmly welcomed by the owner who was airing for us. He took the time to present us all the house and the facilities. He also provided us with tips for sightseeing. The hous is clean and fully equipped. Thanks again.
Clean and spacious
This is a perfect house to relax. It is big and clean. Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed here 6 nights. So there was plenty of room to spread out. We didn't even use all the bedrooms. It is about a 45 minute drive to Hilo. But we knew that and were prepared with a stash of food from Costco. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking stuff and condiments (foil to line the pans would have made clean up faster :)). We cooked breakfast every morning, made sandwiches most days for lunch, and either cooked a simple dinner or brought take out from Hilo. The house has lanai areas but we never sat outside because bugs find us tasty. Andre met us at the house with the key. That was a very nice touch! Posted on the refrigerator are places you can visit. He was available to help with more specific directions, like how to get to the snorkeling hole nearby. We also enjoyed the warm pool at Ahalanui Beach Park. We went in the morning so it wasn't crowded. We were very blessed to see lava: at the crater and flowing into the ocean. The Crater is more than an hour away but to get to the trailhead to view the lava flowing into the ocean is about 20 minutes away. We rented bikes from the trailhead. We enjoyed hanging out on the main floor of the house. We watched TV because we don't have TV reception at home, the refrigerator was close by, and the high ceilings made it the coolest floor. Thanks for letting us stay at your house! We have fabulous memories.
Dolphin and Whale viewing visible from beach/land during winter mos. HAWAIIAN FARMERS MARKET is 1 block away. We also have a licensed massage therapist who provides discounts to our clients and teaches yoga classes to those interested.
