Beautiful 1 Bedroom 1 Bath eco-friendly off-grid home built on an old lava flow out of 3~ 40’ cargo containers. But once you step in this home you will have no idea you were inside former containers. It was built with quality and function in mind. There are 3 large sliding glass doors with views of the ocean & old lava landscape. We have large windows to view the Kīlauea Volcano.
The whole building is 2 homes. The other is a 3 Bedroom 1 Bath also available for rent. Around 12 adult guests total

The space
This beautiful shipping container Home was built on an old lava flow. It’s has clear ocean views, an expansive view of Kīlauea volcano out the back, it’s eco-friendly in so many ways, off-grid utilities (solar power and UV filtered water catchment), surrounded by amazing lava landscape, awe inspiring night sky filled with more stars than you have ever seen before. You will also enjoy the incredible ocean breeze that refreshes and cools you day & night.

The home possesses so many cool features. The first wonderful piece of furniture is the highly functional sofa & ottoman that not only lifts up to provide storage but it also converts to a king size bed. You will also be drawn to the exquisite mango wood that was used for the countertops in the kitchen & bath. Once you see the pebble stone floored bathroom you will again be amazed at the size. Inside you find a one of a kind Petrified wood vessel sink sitting on a great piece of mango with mango wood bordered mirror. As you will see in the photos you get to enjoy a rain shower in the large shower enclosure. Then climb on the comfy mattresses on the bunk bed that was custom made by a local Hawaiian. You will find this home was built in such a unique and quiet place you might not want to leave.

They say, “when you do what you love, you never work a day in your life.” Managing property and traveling through America’s coastal region has armed me with the experience necessary to provide you with a quality place to stay in some of the country’s most stunning locations. I have been a property manager and owner for 19 years. 30 years ago, I made Lantana my home, and I am proud to say it is still the great coastal town that I grew up loving. Whether you enjoy going to the beach, boating, shopping, or sampling the local fare, Lantana is the place to go - and stay a little while. I have also spent a lot of time on the Big Island of Hawaii, and like most, remain fascinated by all that it has to offer. This was why I took on the adventure of converting shipping containers into off-grid vacation bungalows on the lava fields of Kalapana. It was an adventure I will never forget. These lush interiors are situated directly on the lava field and under a night sky lit by thousands of twinkling stars. With the ocean as your view and Kilauea volcano in your backyard, it is truly a once in a lifetime experience you won’t soon forget. A hui hou, Ron Living a Joyful & Blessed Life
