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 Pahoa

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!

Owner's Response: It looks like you enjoyed your stay in our house by the sea but not enough to give us five stars. I’m interested to know what you found lacking in our home as I didn’t hear anything from you during your stay. If I am not notified when something does not meet your expectations, how am I to rectify it?

Awesome accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Oceanfront Home that was comfortable and well stocked for our 5 person stay. The house was clean and updated. The surrounding neighborhood was quiet. The views were spectacular. The caretaker Melissa was very nice and gave us a lot of good tips for local points of interest. She kept in touch with us to make sure we didn’t need anything. This property was well located as a starting point for multiple activities. Going to Uncle Roberts on Wednesday evening is a must!!! Thank you Jennifer and family for such a great stay.

Beautiful, Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable home, with a well equipped kitchen. Upon arrival we were greeted by the property manager and given an orientation to the home and area that was very helpful. The property is well kept and was quite clean upon arrival. I look forward to staying again and having a repeat of our relaxing stay. Mahalo

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I have been away from this house for 5 days and I miss the sound of the waves and the beautiful sunrises. The location of this house if perfect. It is a very easy drive from the village of Pahoa and a short 30 minute drive from Hilo if you are looking for a little more excitement. Like most of the other reviews there are sea turtles to look at everyday from the back yard. The house has plenty of room for everyone. We never once ran out of hot water, and there were six women. The pool was great to use and always warm enough, the kitchen had everything you would need, the bathrooms had plenty of towels, the laundry room came in very handy and all the outdoor spaces were just icing on the cake. We did take a ride to the Kona side once and quickly realized how lucky we were to be on the Hilo side. Pahoa has a fantastic farmers market that we went to on Sunday, if you need gifts to take home you will find everything you are looking for there. Visiting the volcano is super easy. We went to a lot of small beaches and parks in the area and they are all wonderful. Everybody that we encountered was super friendly and helpful. I expected things to be very expensive here but that wasn't the case. We found that most of the restaurants either cost the same or were actually less expensive than the east coast. The gas was about $3.18, not bad, the roads were very well kept and easy to get around. We used our phone and had no problems getting anywhere. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to get away for a very relaxing vacation. The house and location is so great that you don't even feel guilty for not going out and exploring for a day or two. This for sure will be my "go to" house if I ever decide to head to Hawaii again.
