About This Listing
Everyone loves the Avocado Tree House. The little reflection room up in the old avo tree, your own kitchen with organic breakfast fixins and a covered deck facing the sunrise. Located on the same 11 acres as the Mango House.
This cute abode is under and IN an old avocado tree! The main structure offers a hand made four post queen bed and a single bed loft. The Avocado House is perfect for a couple however the loft provides space for a child or friend (however not recommended for a toddler). The little front porch with its wooden shake roof is just right for kickin' back after a day at the coast or a hike across the crater. The upstairs is a magical little cubicle called the “Reflection Room” and is perched up in the tree. It sparkles with jewels, mirrors and stained glass. What a great place to read, meditate, star gaze and watch our magical sunrise!
The Avocado Tree house features an ocean view complete with a full multilevel bath. It has an abundance of solar power, wireless internet, hand painted floors and features a cool collection of funky art. The little kitchen is a separate structure just a few steps away. The kitchen boasts a monkey pod table shaped like the Big Island as well as a covered deck for outdoor dining. The kitchen comes stocked with all condiments and organic breakfast fixins (eggs, whole grain bread, fresh fruit, local honey, coffee and tea) so you can prepare your own breakfast at your convenience. Everyone who stays in the Avocado Tree House loves it!

We stayed with Elvira and Hugh for two nights of our honeymoon on the big island and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer! The accommodations are incredibly cozy, beautifully handmade Hawaiian style treehouses right on the edge of the jungle. I'm not sure I could imagine a more tranquil, unique, or authentic setting. Of course in the jungle one needs to be mindful of mosquitos and other insects, but Elvira let us know about this and we were able to stay with no issues whatsoever. Not only is the place and location gorgeous, but Hugh and Elvira are fantastic hosts. From the moment we arrived they made us feel incredible welcome. These guys taught us the meaning of Aloha! The fresh fruit basket, straight from their garden, is worth the price alone. We got to try a full arrangement of some of the most delicious, mouth-watering island fruits we've ever had. Not only, but one night after a long day of snorkeling they surprised us with a mouth watering dinner of roast wild pig that Hugh had caught himself! They also gave us great tips and a map for exploring the nearby Pahoa sites and coast, which is pristine and beautiful. We love this place and hope to stay again!!
This is a super place to stay! A fantastic experience and very comfy as well. Elvira welcomed us and guided us through the dark upon our arrival. It was as if she could read our minds, because she provided new sheets, repellent coils and exotic fruit and water in abundance before we asked for them. Also everything one needs to make a good breakfast. She adored our 1.5-year-old son and cuddled him a lot. The domain (full of fruit trees and colorful flowers) on which the tree house stands is huge and you can see the rainforest at one side and the ocean on the other while showering, heavenly!
This is our best Airbnb experience so far and we would like to give our very first host award to Elvira an Hugh!
Thank you ever so much,
Toon, Hera and Orion.
I think AirBnb should start proposing 6 stars for rating hosts like Elvira and Hugh. Our stay in this piece of paradise was just wonderful. The Avocado Tree-House couldn't have been better. You live around beautiful trees, flowers, birds and Elvie and Hugh arranged the place with the best sense of detail. Outside shower, top floor meditation room, kitchen with porch for great breakfasts... The place is a jewel and on top of that Elvira & Hugh are the kindest and most generous host you could imagine. The only bad part is that we had to leave and we very sad as we could have stayed there for ages! If you're looking for a place close to nature, hearing no roads and noise but lovely birds instead, but still in a very convenient place to visit the beautiful Puna region and surroundings, don't hesitate, contact Elvira and Hugh! The place was way better than we expected, Elvira and Hugh are adorable, Mahalo for everything, we already miss you and the Avocado Tree-House!
We were very impressed with the treehouse. Kitchen was stocked with fresh fruit, coffee, bread, and eggs. Delicious grapefruit growing outside our door. Wildlife sounds at night. The loft bed is really cool. Good book selections. Climb up the ladder to the mirrored-out, zen, little trippy, little romantic meditation room - Open the windows for an awesome view. So many great spots here to chill, reflect, and enjoy life. Elvira was very welcoming and provided an ideal place to call home for our week on the island.
We absolutely loved staying at the avocado treehouse. This was such a unique experience and we are grateful to Elvira and Hugh for making it as easy as possible for us to both find the place and feel as comfortable as possible while we were there. It truly is a breathtaking location and we couldn't believe how lucky we were to be able to get up every day in such an amazing place. We would for sure come back if our travels ever return us to the Big Island!
To put it simply, this place was extraordinary. From the get-go Elvira and Hugh were very responsive to my questions about the place, and were very accommodating with me regarding the check-in time. The property itself was easy to find when following their directions, and Elvira met me at the driveway entry and showed me the route towards the Avocado Tree-House.
The place itself was fantastic. It felt very much like a little treehouse, even if it was not actually built up in a tree. There are a few other buildings on the property, but the Avocado Treehouse is on the edge of everything, and we never felt there was a lack of privacy at any time during our stay. It truly felt like we were surrounded by nothing but trees, birds, and the peaceful sounds that the Island provides.
I really wish we could have stayed longer!
We truly enjoyed our stay here! Lovely Elvira took really good care of us and this place is like a sliver of paradise! The surroundings are full of farm animals and wild life but it's still serene and the house is surprisingly clean. The location was also great as a base to explore a lot of local gems.
We have already recommended this place to friends and family and if we ever come back to Hawaii this is where we will stay!
