Serene, remote, zen retreat in one of Hawaii's most scenic places, K’au region at Punalu'u Black Sand Beach. It’s a short 1/3 mile walk to the beach, crashing waves, palm trees & flowers, amazing mountain and ocean views, in the countryside of macademia nut & coffee farms. Incredible dark sky with countless stars. A gorgeous 30 minute drive to Volcanoes National Park. Far removed from the hustle of city life, welcome to the edge of the universe. Spectacular!

The space
12-26-2020

Kīlauea volcano is currently erupting again with a gorgeous orange glow from the lava lake in the caldera! Safe conditions allow you to hike in Volcanoes National Park 24/7. Come see this phenomenal natural event!

In compliance with State and County rules regarding COVID-19, we are now accepting reservations starting for guests who are not subject to the 14-day quarantine by passing a Covid-19 test within 72 hours prior to arrival and the free rapid test at the airport upon arrival into Hawaii county (Big Island). We cannot currently host anyone who is subject to a quarantine.

The pool and BBQ grill will be open daily 8:30am to 9:00pm by reservation only, in one hour timeframes. Maximum 6 people at a time in the pool, and maximum 10 people at a time in the enclosed pool area. One person at a time using the bbq grill. The hot tub remains closed. There's an online reservation system for confirmed guests to reserve their times.

The gorgeous beach and shoreline are a short walk or drive (1/3 mile). We welcome you with ALOHA. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

Welcome to the countryside of genuine Old Hawaii, amidst oceanfront coffee plantations and macademia nut farms, with crashing ocean waves, idyllic beaches with sea turtles, far away from stereotypical "tourist attractions". This is a magical, life-changing place. Be ready to connect with nature, see the Milky Way in the dark night sky, or experience the awe of a full moon rising over the ocean. The positive energy is contagious.

Enjoy this gorgeous ground-floor studio condo with king size bed, full bathroom with sunken tub, fully equipped (but small) kitchen, and covered lanai (patio). This is a peaceful, quiet, remote place where you'll sleep to the sounds of the ocean waves and wake to the sounds of songbirds and swaying palm trees in the tradewinds. The pool (currently closed) is just steps around the building from your lanai.

You'll enjoy the new 55" Samsung 4K Smart TV with cable tv where you can watch Showtime, Netflix, YouTube, surf the internet, or AirPlay from your Apple products (iPhone, iPad, MacBook etc) using our Apple TV. High speed wireless internet is included. The Japanese style tatami table and chairs are indoors and the bar height dining table and chairs are outside on the covered lanai.

Included:
washer and dryer, refrigerator, two burner electric cooktop, microwave, rice cooker, blender, portable countertop oven, pots and pans, beach umbrella, snorkel mask, insulated bag, ice chest, and large towels.

Quiet hours from 9pm-8am. NO SMOKING in the condo or on the lanai (designated smoking areas with seats are just steps away, or when strolling the nearby golf course or beaches).


Punalu'u Black Sand beach is an easy 5 min walk (1/3 mile) down the paved road. Along the way, you can enjoy vistas of the countryside macademia nut and coffee farms. The immediate area is a historic native Hawaiian site, with several ritual centers (heiau) and a trail by the sea (kahakai) to explore (for more info, google Save Punalu'u).

There is no heat or a/c because it's not needed (it's always between 65-85 degrees and if it's chilly or hot it only lasts a few hours till the tradewinds keep the air moving and it's lovely!) We have a ceiling fan and floor fan.

The space is for two adults. No parties. No pets allowed in the condo complex. If you have a certified registered service dog, please let us know in advance.

The golf course is currently closed (pending new ownership).

Rates plus 10.25% transient accommodations tax and 4.712% general excise tax.

This is a legal short term vacation rental unit in the county of Hawaii, Big Island. STVR-19-367710. TA-128-859-5968-01

Guest access
You'll have the entire place to yourself! We have a lockbox on the door so you can arrive and leave at your convenience.

Other things to note
Our front door is across from the golf check-in building and you can very conveniently unload your luggage at the door. Parking is in the designated parking lot only, per County rules. If you enter through the front door, you'll go down 9 stairs into the living space which is still at ground level, because the building is built into the side of a hill. If you enter through the lanai door on the ocean side, there are no stairs.

Once inside, the entire living space is at ground level, with a screened glass door to the the walk-out lanai leading to a botanical garden so beautiful your heart will skip a beat (in a good way). You can stroll a very short distance through the garden on a sidewalk without any steps to the pool, hot tub, golf course. You'll have a key to the sliding glass door also, so if you have any problem with stairs, you can avoid all stairs very easily.

Location

Pahala, Hawaii, United States

The area is old unspoiled Hawaii. We're between the towns of Naalehu (where you'll find the delicious famous Punalu’u Bakery, 76 gas station with snacks, a small local grocery store called Will and Grace, Ace Hardware, Shaka Bar and Restaurant, Hana Hou restaurant) and Pahala (where you'll find Long's Drugstore, Bank of Hawaii, and a small grocery store called Minuzo's Suprette). Nearby you can tour the Ka'u Coffee Mill to see and taste delicious local coffee (many say better than Kona coffee) and macademia nuts. You'll definitely want space in your carry on to take some tasty treats home.
