Hale Lanipuna - the little pink vacation house in the Puna forest!
Our Pohoiki vacation rental home is near Pahoa (in Puna District south of Hilo). It is not far from the Volcanoes National Park, and offers secluded privacy, a natural eco-friendly lifestyle in the Puna rain forest, and a diversity-friendly community. You'll love Puna so much you'll want to buy your own land and build a vacation or retirement home here, too.
This brand-new, cozy one bedroom house in Pohoiki is a brand-new Vacation Rental Home, specifically designed for vacationers. It's located in a secluded tropical forest only 3.5 miles for the ocean at Pohoiki Bay (Issac Hale Beach Park) and about 8 miles from where the lava from Kilauea is flowing into the ocean. Hawai'i (called the Big Island by everyone) is famous for its geography, its dark flavorful Kona coffee, the great diving, and of course, the volcanoes (one of which is active, Kilauea). Our vacation house is located in a more sunny micro-climate area that extends to the coast. We actually get less rain than they do in Hilo and up the eastern coast of Hamakua toward Honoka'a.

Additional landscaping and other improvements were made in March/April 2009, and August 2009 (bbq area with new gas grill), Feb-March 2010: Palms in a border hedge row, coconut palms, flowering shrubs, fruit trees, (papayas are bearing fruit), new gas grill under the back shed, an adult mountain bicyle (Dec '09) a new Magtag washing machine (Feb '10).
It's within 5 minutes of Pahoa town for shopping and dining, and 3.5 miles from the ocean. Close to some spectacular natural sights – see the lava flows at Kalapana (what you won’t be able to see inside Volcanoes National Park), near Kapoho Thermal Ponds, and not far from clothing-optional Kehena Black Sands Beach.
Details about our vacation rental home:
Built in 2007, Opened as a vacation rental in September 2008!
If you plan on getting some work done while you are here, please know that most mobile phones work fine (ATT seems to have the best reception). Free high-speed DSL Internet is available in the house. (plug in or wirelessly roam about the house, lanai, yard). There is a computer desk in the bedroom along with a Canon printer/fax/scanner that you can set up easily to use with your laptop.
Our one-bedroom, one bath vacation home is a small but space-efficient home. It has 684 sq ft inside plus another 125s q ft in the large covered lanai (porch) across the front of the house. There is one separate bedroom with an extra-firm queen size mattress along with a separate bathroom with tub/shower.
The house does not have central air conditioning. Most nights are rather cool (68-72 degree F) so the ceiling fans (living room, bedroom), floor fans, and attic exhaust fans should make it cool and breezy enough – except the most finicky.
The house is elegantly furnished inside and fully ready to satisfy your needs for comfort and for enjoying life while on vacation. The living room –dining room - kitchen areas are in one great room with a vaulted ceiling. There is a large center counter to which everyone will undoubtedly gravitate – to talk, nibble as food is prepared, and to relax. An Indonesian glass-top rattan table completes the dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, pots and utensils, dishware and flatware for six. There is lots of extra storage space, a large capacity refrigerator, and storage containers to help you organize your food preparation and economize while here. You could even hold a dinner party since the home’s layout is perfect for cooking and entertaining. The kitchen is designed and equipped well for both the complete chef and the casual microwave ‘cook’, too.
