The Lava Hale is a contemporary "Hawaiian Style" wood home built with natural and locally sourced materials. A perfect choice for travelers wanting a full home experience and their own secluded piece of paradise!

The space
The Home (The "Lava Hale")
Surrounded by the lush rainforest and your own private garden, this Hale offers two floors of separate living space in one home.

Recently upgraded with new beds and additional loving touches of aloha, The Lava Hale is an outstanding option for larger families or two groups traveling together (usually requiring two seperate hotel bookings to stay together)

Lava Hale is also the perfect choice for a small group or couple, wanting the extra space and privacy our large home tucked away in the rainforest provides.


(Main House/Second Floor)
Set up to be a perfect retreat for a couple or small family, this spacious open concept unit includes a full kitchen, dining area, futon/couch, small tv, king sized bed, and attached bathroom offering a shower and bathtub! There is also a beautiful wrap around lanai (patio), perfect for enjoying the sweet bird songs over breakfast or spending an afternoon in the hammock with a book, perched in your own oasis along the tree tops.

(First Floor)
For larger bookings, we also offer additional sleeping area in our first floor known as the Ohana Hale. This equally spacious studio, provides two additional (California King) Beds, and small bathroom.

For those looking for an unforgettable jungle experience...there is an outdoor bathtub which is perfect for relaxing and recharging while surround by the hypnotizing sounds of the rainforest.

*Please keep in mind that this bathtub is located outdoors and in a screened room, so privacy is limited.

We recommend all guests find time to wander our private tropical gardens, where you may find treats like rare orchids or seasonal fruit like Hawaiian lilikoi (passion fruit), bananas or pineapple.

*Lilicoi can be picked straight from the vine if ready! The outside will be bright yellow when ripe and ready!

If pineapple or bananas are ready during your visit, your local host will harvest for you. Please ask your local host for assistance before rempving from the plants. Mahalo

Please Note...
We are excited announce that we are in the final phase of a scheduled upgrade to our home. This includes some new furniture, linens and other exciting design changes.
*Please pardon our dust, and understand that the decor and layout may slightly differ than some shared photos

Where you’ll be

Pāhoa, Hawaii, United States

Located 14 miles outside of the town of Pahoa, Seaview Estates is a secluded community located along the famous "Red Road", and just up the way from the old town of Kalapana. The town itself was taken by Lava in the 1980s, but is still worth a stop to take a quick hike to the coast, learn a bit of local history and grab a smoothie or drink at the bar.

The Lava Hale itself is located within a walking distance from Kehena Black Beach, an amazing natural beauty located just below the lava formed cliffs, and the perfect spot to watch the sunrise , and if you're lucky playful spinner dolphins or whale too!

The Seaview community has a private seaside lawn where neighbors spend their evenings gathering with friends or having dinners under the stars.

*Our community, and the town of Pahoa is known for its laidback and hippy-like vibe, so we ask that guests read in detail about our town and our local beach prior to your stay. Weekends can bring visitors from all over the island, so note that the lawn and local beach can be a lot more crowded.

My name is Grace and I am originally from Europe. I came to Hawaii in 2003, and right then I knew that the Hawaiian islands are my home. My favorite islands are Oahu and Big Islands. My husband was in the military back then, and I had to leave Hawaii, but deep inside I knew that I will spend the rest of my life here. I am an esthetician by trade, and I work at Honolulu Spa & Wellness. If you are on Oahu you should stop by.
