View the lava flow that is about six miles east of the house and stopped at the Pahoa Transfer Station.

Enjoy watching the whales breach and the turtles play in the waves during the day. At night, let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep in this beautiful private home located in Pahoa. This custom two story oceanfront, east-side of Hawaii, home is so close to the gorgeous Pacific Ocean you’ll feel like you are on a cruise ship. This 2800+ SF house has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and 180 degrees of unobstructed views where you can watch colorful sunrises and marine life like whales, dolphins, and turtles play in the ocean. Have an enjoyable Hawaiian vacation where you can listen to the waves and feel the ocean breezes. The home is located near the most eastern tip of the Big Island and due to tradewinds and seabreezes is almost always free of VOG (volcanic Haze) that affects the air quality in other parts of the island.

Our home has been lovingly prepared and will make even the most discriminating traveler happy. This home offers peace and relaxation in a dramatic setting with panoramic views of the ocean. Listen to the songs of myna birds at sunrise and sunset. Refresh yourself in the pool or go on a leisurely stroll in the nearby forest.

Located in a friendly neighborhood, and near a park, this location is great for taking walks, jogs, or bike rides. Or just kick back and relax on the lounge chairs and enjoy the sun and ocean breezes. Conveniently located just 5 minutes from the town of Pahoa which has many stores and restaurants to chose from. Don't forget the wonderful farmer's markets! Just down the road is Pohoiki Beach Park (swimming/surf spot), the Wai Opae fish sanctuary (snorkeling) and geothermal hot ponds. Also close by is the Hawaii Volcano National Park.

We are located 30 minutes from Hilo airport. Check-in is 3:00PM & Check-out is at 10:00AM (unless other arrangements have been made). Directions will be e-mailed to you upon confirmation.

We are also offering, for a small fee, a traditional lei greeting upon arrival and grocery stocking so you can relax the moment you arrive. If interested, please inquire upon booking.

About Jennifer Cizek

We live in Alaska and frequently fly to Hawaii for vacations. The tropical life greatly appealed to us so we decided to purchase a home in Hawaii. We have been married for 30 years and have 3 lovely girls.

Jennifer Cizek purchased this house in 2012

Why Jennifer Cizek chose Puna District

We chose this home for several reasons. We fell in love with the view and believe the house is in a perfect location. We decided to do a vacation rental so we could share this wonderful environment with others. It will also help us maintain the property until the day that we can retire there.

What makes this house unique

We like the tropical breezes, the expansive ocean view and listening to the tropical wildlife. We enjoy the fresh island fruit and creative island drinks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family really enjoyed our stay at your home. The house and grounds are in immaculate condition. The fresh flowers and fruit were an excellent addition. The pool was a lot of fun; J spent a lot of time in it during our stay. The ocean front view cannot be surpassed! Beautiful sunrises and we did see some green turtles bobbing in the surf. The breeze kept us cool and the sound of the waves lulled us to sleep. We had a great time!

Stunning views, gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Jennifer's Pahoa home for 4 nights, coming from 6 nights on the Kona side of the island. This home was perfect for what we were looking for! Our group of 7 had fun days and nights in the pool and were up late nights playing board games during our down time. But, you could seriously spend your whole day just enjoying the view and the sound of the waves. We saw sea turtles braving the waves many times - it was such a treat!

The home in general is very well kept up and in working order. Nothing appears old or out of date. The kitchen had everything we could need for preparing meals and coolers for when you wanted to take things on the go with you. The home caretaker gave us many tips on things to do/places to visit in the area and was just a call/text away if we had any questions.

It was so sad to leave.... we will definitely look into this home by the sea when we visit the Big Island again.

Could not have asked for a better place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived, the home and view took our breathe away! Absolutely gorgeous! This home was perfect in every way. It is comfortable, spacious, very clean an has all the home necessities that you may ever need. We loved staying here and did not want to leave. The sunrise and sunsets will make waking up and going to bed something to look forward to every day. It is very convenient to many activities, we spent the whole day running around and it was so nice to come "home".

In addition, Melissa made us feel so very welcome. Her enthusiasm and warmth definitely add to the whole experience. My brother arrived before I did and said that she was so happy that we were staying in the home and wanted us to have the best stay possible, with dinner and activity suggestions and personally guided us through all of the amenities of the home.

We feel incredibly blessed to have had this time in Hilo. Thank you and God bless!

Great for families; quiet neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our visit to the big island! This property is as advertised; great location and very comfortable home. There are lots of comfortable beds and a great pool for cooling off with a great view of the sun/moon rise, not to mention front row seating to watch the sea turtles in action right off the back yard. One small issue arose when we were flagged for writing on the wall of the house (which turned out to be prior guests). Fortunately, that issue was resolved with a couple of emails. If not for that, 5/5 stars--although I certainly wouldn't hesitate to go back...

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our house by the sea. When an issue comes up about damage to the house during a stay we always contact renters prior to deducting anything from their damage deposit. We do our best to be on top of what happens when, but sometimes life get hectic and things don't get noticed right away. Which is what happened in your case. It has always been our policy to discuss deductions with renters to make sure that both parties are satisfied with the outcome.

Big Island in the country with beautiful ocean view

  • 5 of 5

The house was large even for extended family of 6. House was roomy beautiful and complete. We were there for 4 days and had a wonderful time. The only minor problem was the swimming pool became a little murky the last two days, but the view of the ocean made any troubles melt away. A special shout-out to the gate keeper Melissa. She explained the home perfectly and was helpful with any questions we had. This was a special spot for our family.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our house by the sea. It was unfortunate that your stay coincided with the difficulty we were having with the pool. We have since hired a pool guy to help us keep it properly maintained.

Beautiful house for seven people.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a beautiful setting in a quiet neighborhood with waves crashing on the lava rocks shore. It is well appointed and easy for seven people (four adults and three children) to live in. We were very pleased.
