About this listing

This is the elegant Hawaiian retreat you've been dreaming of.

The space

This is the elegant Hawaiian retreat that you have been dreaming about. This inviting contemporary home sits atop 26 acres of gently sloping grassy fields with commanding panoramic ocean view. This estate is a slice of "Old Hawaii" with organic ginger and turmeric fields on the grounds, fragrant breezes, rainbows, a forest of Ohia trees, and sunny days giving way to brilliant starlit nights. There is a spectacular warm fresh water spring pond on the coast below, and a black sand beach all within 10 minutes from your cozy retreat. Also close to Volcanoes National Park, and a pristine marine sanctuary for some of the most spectacular snorkeling imaginable. These are just the obvious reasons this is the place for you. But there are many other comforts you will enjoy. Your bedroom has a wall of sliding glass with a breathtaking 180° view of the Puna coastline. The Rainforest suite features a king size bed, and deluxe marble bathroom with rain shower, and large steeping bathtub. Massage therapy, and guided tours to the Volcano and snorkeling available with advanced booking.
This is the tastefully affordable Hawaiian retreat that you have dreamed of...

Super quiet (except for frogs at night!) and secluded home. David was a great host - he made sure to show us where everything was, how to work it, and even gave us suggestions on where to go. His 3 dogs were a welcome sight, as we miss our pup back home! If you are looking for a jungle setting with pretty modern amenities, this is the right spot for you.

David's house is really the best I've ever tried in Airbnb. The house is very clean and well designed. The house is even better than it is pictured. Our private bedroom has a private luxury bathroom with great view. David serves fruits in the morning and he has three hospitable dogs.

The pictures didn't lie - simply a wonderful place to stay. The room was spacious and clean, nicely decorated and with a huge and comfy bed. Bath and shower were gigantic. Its rainshower was a welcome treat after cycling to the lava flows (do that!). It is a 10 min ride to the next town and restaurants, but this didn't bother us at all. Go there if you want to relax. David was a nice and very friendly host, so were his dogs :) We'd come back in a heartbeat. Die Bilder haben nicht gelogen! Die Farm ist riesig und wunderschön gelegen, mit tollem Blick aufs Meer in der Ferne. Das Zimmer war riesig, super sauber und schön eingerichtet. Das Bad und die Regendusche waren echter Luxus, insb. nach der Fahrradtour zur Lava (Super Tipp - machen!). Man fährt mit dem Auto zwar 10 Minuten zum nächsten Restaurant und Stadt, macht aber nichts, da man auf der Farm so toll entspannen kann. David war super freundlich, hat sich sehr zurückgenommen, sodass wir einfach entspannen konnten. Die 3 Hunde waren super zutraulich, haben aber Verbot ins Gästezimmer zu kommen. Sehr gutes AirBNB, nur halt etwas ab vom Schuss.

What a beautiful find, David's lovely home!! We are residents of Hawai'i and also AirBnB hosts, and, as such, can be a bit picky. We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful master bedroom suite, with perfect access to outdoors and sweeping view of the ocean. The room was beautifully appointed, with high-quality linens, little artful details ; a spacious & gorgeous bathroom. The house and setting were serene, quiet and homey: David's 3 beautiful dogs were the perfect addition -- made us feel at home as we missed ours while traveling! David was a perfect host -- gracious, kind, hospitable, helpful w/sightseeing suggestions, restaurant tips, etc . Above all, David extended his Aloha to us and made us feel welcome in his lovely home.

David was a fantastic host, and his beautiful home and property were perfect for exploring the Big Island. The sea views from the private bedroom were incredible; bathroom was spacious, extremely clean and updated, and the property was quiet and secluded, yet close to Pahoa town. David kindly offered suggestions for local activities, and we could not have been happier with our stay.

David's place is absolutely amazing. Beautifully located and very secluded in tropical paradise. (great views!) We were amazed by the beauty of his place and the attention to detail he put into decorating it. Very tastefully done! David is a great host and kind person.He gave us some good tips on things to do and see and he even served us a lovely fruit breakfast each morning. And as a bonus: 3 very sweet dogs greeting us upon arrival :-) We would highly recommend this place to anyone and hope to return someday. Don't hesitate, just book!

David is a first-class host. He is kind, warm, and very knowledgeable about the area. He gave us just the right recommendations to fill our days with adventure and tranquility. He is available when you need him. The guest bedroom and bathroom are spacious and well-appointed. Even the grand shower room offers a view of the ocean. The house sits on a large ginger farm and is just 10 min. from black sand beaches and warm spring pools off the sea. Let David provide you with an experience of old Hawaii in contemporary style.
